One of the more attractive areas of Long Island is a place called Fire Island. This barrier island runs south of, and across a bay from, the south shore of Long Island and is much more secluded than other popular Long Island summer destinations, such as the Hamptons. Fire Island is accessible by ferry only, and as a result, automobiles are non-existent on the island. A bicycle is the preferred mode of transportation on the small streets that make their way along the quarter of a mile wide island, passing through one community after the next. The island feels as if it is from an era long ago, where automobiles didn’t dictate the layout of the island and everywhere you go is pedestrian friendly. Running into locals and conversing is one of the best parts of this tightly knit resort island.
Above is a night shot taken of Ocean Beach, one the many communities on the island. A foggy mist had settled in on the island that night and created a moody atmosphere perfect for a late night pizza run into town.
