Rockland / Orange / Putnam/ Long IslandLess rural than neighboring Orange County, the land is decidedly residential. Rockland County offers a variety of industries, with many residents working jobs in health, retail, construction, and research. For residents who choose to commute into New York City, there are many transportation options, including dedicated bus service to Tarrytown for the train, and many busses which go to either the Uptown Port Authority at the George Washington Bridge, or The Port Authority on 41st Street in mid-town Manhattan. NJ Transit Train Lines make stops in Rockland County at Spring Valley, Nanuet and Pearl River. Though the name comes from the term “rocky land,” first gifted to the area by its early Dutch settlers, Rockland County is home to ample parkland. Explore hiking trails in Bear Mountain State Park, or picnic along the Hudson River at Nyack Beach. Swim in the summer and ice skate in the fall at one of Rockland’s many riverside parks. Active residents also enjoy the numerous public and private golf courses scattered throughout the county. Located just an hour outside of New York City in the Hudson Valley, Putnam County offers a touch of country life and stunning natural vistas to the growing population of locals that call it home. Though compact in size compared to neighboring Westchester and Dutchess, Putnam is one of the most affluent counties in America. Long Island New York is the largest island adjoining the contiguous United States, extending approximately 118 miles east-northeast from the mouth of the Hudson River. It is separated from the mainland on the north by the Long Island Sound and bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the south and east. Twenty miles at its widest point, Long Island is composed of low plateaus on the north, longitudinal ridges of glacial moraine through the central parts of the island, and gently sloping plains to the south. The East End of the island is made up of two forks. The North Fork is approximately 28 miles long, the southern – terminating at Montauk Point – is about 44 miles in length. Peconic and Gardiners Bays separate the two forks and are where Shelter Island and Gardiners Island are located.
