Tuesday Trivia! Long Island is an island, right?

Tuesday Trivia! Long Island is an island, right? Technically speaking, yes, but in the eyes of the federal government it was decided we are an extension of the mainland. This really muddles whether we live IN or ON Long Island! The 1985 ruling was handed down by a Supreme Court case, United States v. Maine 469 U.S. 504, in the interest of classifying the Long Island Sound and similar bodies of water as juridical bays.  Gorgeous photo by: Ann Marie Bain.
