Image Caption: NM21-766-069 Long Island, New York Spring-Summer 1996
The urban sprawl of central Long Island can be seen in this northwest-looking view. Long Island is made up of glacial moraines and outwash plains. Northern Long Island (upper right) is marked with wooded low hills and low cliffs, and is deeply indented with bays. Southern Long Island has long beaches, backed by dunes and shallow lagoons. Near the upper right of the image, Huntington Bay and Eatons Neck point are discernible. Near the bottom center of the image, the western portion of the Fire Island national Seashore backed by Great South Bay is visible. Extensive beaches backed by South Oyster Bay can be seen near the center left of the image. Numerous highways are discernible traversing the image from west to east through many small cities and urban areas. The wooded area visible near the bottom right of the image is Connetquot River State Park.
