Life on Long Island

Good Samaritan Hospital is located about 40 miles from the heart of New York City in West Islip, just steps away from the Great South Bay. Being centrally located on the south shore of the Island is ideal for all lifestyles. Long Island is rich in culture and history, and offers a wide variety of activities and places to captivate anyone’s interests.

Long island’s east end is a known summer destination for celebrities, but in addition to the beautiful beaches, Long Islanders can enjoy the change in the four season, close proximity to New York City, and endless indoor and outdoor activities. No matter the season, Long Island offers a full range of activities including family friendly activities, professional sports, theaters, museums, restaurants of all cuisines, national/state parks, night life, shopping, and the opportunity to explore the East End's wineries and breweries.

At 1,401 square miles, Long Island is the 11th largest island in the United States, and is home to several million residents year-round. It is geographically divided up into four regions: Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk. Although Brooklyn and Queens are technically located on Long Island, they are considered part of the five boroughs of New York City.
Nassau County is located on the western end of Long Island consisting of 2 cities (Long Beach and Glen Cove), 3 towns (Hempstead, North Hempstead, and Oyster Bay) and within those three towns resides 64 villages. Suffolk County is much larger than Nassau County, covers more than half of Long Island, and is located on the central and eastern portion of Long Island. Suffolk consists of 10 towns (Babylon, Brookhaven, East Hampton, Huntington, Islip, Riverhead, Shelter Island, Smithtown, Southampton and Southold) and 33 villages. Also within the borders of Suffolk County are two Indian reservations: The Shinnecock Reservation and Poospatuck Reservation.
