FIRE ISLAND
When America came home from World War II to forge a placid Ozzie and Harriet suburban paradise from coast to coast, a 30-mile island of a dozen-plus beach communities off the southern shore of Long Island already provided a summer playground where an alternative gay and lesbian culture could flourish. For more than 60 years, the Fire Island Pines and nearby Cherry Grove have been queer havens that loom large in the imagination of LGBT people worldwide.

For New Yorkers, of course, the beaches, summer shares, hotels, fine dining, nightclubs, and live theater are just a commuter train and ferry ride away. Despite competition from bucolic getaways in the Hudson and Delaware River Valleys and revitalized resorts on the Jersey Shore, Fire Island remains the Best Weekend Getaway in the view of Gay City News readers.
