Many people think that growing up on Long Island was an isolated life. Quite the opposite, as you knew and loved your neighbours and had a strong sense of belonging. No matter where I have lived, when I cross the ferry and drive up the ferry slip a sense of peace overcomes me and I know I am home.. Always an Island girl “born of the land, forged by the sea!Kathy Cossaboom-Best
