Stopping in to see there are some live members on Long Island! LOL

Favorite Ice Cream: As a kid I use to go to Gertz in Mid Island Plaza in Hicksville and get their soft ice cream parfait with either chocolate or strawberry syrup. The BEST! And it was only a DIME!
Favorite now - Friendly's (if there are any left)

I was thinking of starting a new Nassau vs. Suffolk challenge. One where we count up the Spark Points earned by each county each week and compare to see which county can earn the most points. Maybe I can even get the Spark folks to create one of those nifty trophies for us. Any interest in this?

I'm an upstater (Saratoga Springs) transplanted to Long Island for about 15 years now. I love the diversity of the area but my favorite area is the eastern end of Suffolk county, the wineries and farms.

Nice to see this team is still alive. I am out in Suffolk county. The fall foliage, lakes, rivers, and beaches, both large and small, are a match for anywhere else! I love the peacefulness of the communities off the main highways. emoticon emoticon

Coopers Beach, Southampton. Great memories from childhood.
Best pizza: a little shop next to Farmingdale Movie Theater that this woman had. She was the only one working--all she did was make pizza and sold it by the slice. It was great. Of course this is going back to the early to mid-60's.

I hope so too. I don't know if you've seen the posting that SWTJOY put up in the NY team looking for walkiers in Nassau and Suffolk. Looks like the biggest obstacle is going to be finding a time (and perhpas location) that everyone can make. Right now, a lot of support to do it, but few people who can actually get together on a weekend. We shall see.

I would prefer being on the Long Island team. I'm hoping that when the weather gets warmer, we can get a group together to walk for exercise.

Hi Lee,

New, old - doesn't matter. Once a member, you're a member (unless you leave). This team existed long before I came to it and when the leader MYSPECIALKS wasn't available for a while I volunteered to co-lead the team.

It's been real quiet (which is unusual for Long Islanders) and since the NY Team was created, it seems a lot of LIers are doing more posting there than here. Either (or both) is fine with me. I'm still trying to figure out where this team is going.

Enjoy!!

You too Lee. (And here I was thinking "Wow, someone's going to add to this thread!:)

Anyway, Happy Holidays!!

So, general question ... with the advent of the new official NY SparkTeam, should we disband this one? There is no action, but I do see many LIers posting regularly on the NY team. So maybe this one's time has run out?

Let me know your thoughts. I'm perfectly happy to keep it, and still would like to get enough interest just from LIers (either in this team or the NY team) to perhaps plan some sort of real-world outing for us to all meet).

Hmmm.. thinking that this was either not a great topic ... or we don't really like/appreciate all that Nassau and Suffolk have to offer.

Ah well.. I'll keep trying :-)

Happy Holidays Everyone!!

Okay, so this isn't actually meant to be a competition as the word "versus" might imply - but I was looking for a Topic that would catch peoples' eye.

We all (or most of us) live or lived on Long Island. Each county has plenty to offer - this is going to be a sort of "what's great about our county" sort of list.

Basically, I'll start off by giving a category and my favorite thing in Nassau in that category. Anyone reading it, can then reply by writing 2 things:

1) Name another place on L.I. in the same category that you love (and let us know if its in Nassau or Suffolk).

2) Think of another category and tell us your favorite place/thing/etc... for that category (and again, which county it's in).

Here goes (easy one here):

Beach: Jones Beach (Nassau)
