History

Long Island is the largest of all islands in the continental United States covering over 1,400 square miles. Long Island is 118 miles long and ranging from 12 to 20 miles wide island extending from New York harbor into the Atlantic Ocean.

Brooklyn and Queens account for over half of total areas and are boroughs of New York City. Nassau and Suffolk counties are mainly suburban areas with stretching farmlands and rural sections on the most outlying portions. Long Island has a major commuter base in population as people living in the quieter suburbs make their living in Manhattan.

Due to it's close proximity to New York City, a major superhero hub, much of the vigilante action and battles spread into suburban Long Island.

Alternate Realities

Earth-689

The Avengers went to the building on Long Island which housed the Herodotron in their own time. They broke into the facility and found that it did indeed exist in this alternate reality, so they decided to wire Captain America into the device because he had the will power to handle all the incoming information and learned the truth of Earth-689.[1]

Earth-1218

Earth-1218's Long Island

During 1968's winter most violent snowstorm, Gene Colan drove on an almost impassable road to bring the last ten pages of Daredevil for Stan Lee to write.[2]
