greenport - map & directions
Long Island is the largest and longest island in the United States. A large body of water, the Peconic Bay, splits the eastern end to form two narrow peninsulas, commonly referred to as two forks. At Greenport, near the eastern tip of the North Fork, the northern side opens to the waters of Long Island Sound with the Peconic Bay on the southern side.

On Route 25 East you pass through several small towns, Jamesport, Mattituck, Cutchogue, and Southold, before you reach Greenport. The distance is approximately 30 miles from the LIE exit.
