Long Island Videos

There are a handful of Long Island related videos on and I thought it’d be nice to have them all in one place.

All of these videos were created by me as part of other pages on this website, but even out of their original context the videos are fun to watch.

I have included a short description of each one and a link to where it can be found on this website.

If you have a favorite (I know I have mine) please leave a comment or two at the end of this page. Sharing this page with friends is even better :)

The Great South Bay doesn’t freeze very often, but when it does it’s a sight to behold. If you can stand the cold and stick around long enough you can hear the ice cracking. It sounds like small bombs exploding.
