Would you ever want to go to one of the best places on Long Island? If so, you should come visit my hometown, Point Lookout. Point Lookout is a small town, but it has many wonderful qualities. Since Point Lookout is so small, with only one traffic light, everything is within walking distance. I can walk to my friends' houses, and you could walk to your local market without even stepping foot in your car.

Summers are definitely the most fun because of the beach. We have the only private breach within 10 miles.

Last but not least, the people of Point Lookout are what makes this town such a treasure. Generation after generation return to Point Lookout to raise their families in a small, safe, and beautiful town.

I know that there are a lot of small towns out there, but Point Lookout is surely one you would think is unique. I am lucky to live here and wish you could all have the chance to visit.
