Long Island is LONG. My mother grew up in Queens; moved me n brother out to Sag Harbor 1971. Every 2nd Friday we took the bus up Sunrise hwy to Babylon; Pops would drive us back to civilization (Manhasset). At that time SH was the Lost World, to me. My edgy humor (MAD, Lampoon) got my face punched regularly.
I wondered what misfits (lol) lived in Mastic Shirley and Speonk... and why was there a store named "Robert Hall"? That's a dude's name. Took years to figure that one out.
