Long Island, part of New York State, is an island off the North American coast, some 118 miles (190 km) long, and from 12 to 20 miles wide, extending from New York Harbor into the North Atlantic Ocean. To the north of the island is Long Island Sound, which separates it from the coast of Connecticut and Rhode Island. To the south are the Great South Bay, South Oyster Bay, and Jamaica Bay, then a number of small barrier islands (most notably Fire Island), and the Atlantic Ocean. The island separates into two forks at the eastern end, known as the North Fork and South Fork.
