Nautical Mile Freeport
Caption / Share

You’ve partied on the Nautical Mile. Located along a canal in Freeport, there’s nothing in Suffolk County like this: a stretch of road almost entirely populated by restaurants, bars and nightclubs that draws Nassau County residents of all ages for seafood dinners, live music, dancing and socializing. Charter boats also dock along the ‘Mile, so anyone looking for some fun on the water can take a party boat from here, then return and keep the good times going (until 11 p.m., when the local noise ordinance tends to bring most bashes to a close).(Credit: Bruce Gilbert)

You know you're from Nassau when...

Nassau and Suffolk counties have distinct identities, and the people who live in each area have special knowledge that ties them to their counties. For instance, if you're from Nassau, you know the actual places in all the Billy Joel songs and Roosevelt Field is a second home. The following examples were culled from our social media followers and staff. Send your suggestions to litowns@newsday.com.
