  • Lovely parcel of land, but that's the most interesting thing about it. Even the employees looked bored.
  • I find the description of WW House as being in "Strip Mall Country" highly offensive. It was apparently written by someone who lives far, far away. The Walt Whitman House is a beautiful museum on Long Island's busiest commercial boulevard. It is an example of what life on Long Island was, and still IS in many spots. For the record, Long Island has more beach than Florida, world-class restaurants and hotels, a thriving tourist economy, is the heart of Technology in NY State and has NY State's largest continually productive agricultural county, Suffolk. Additionally LI is home to SUNY Stony Brook, Adelphi University, Molloy College and a dozen other institutions of higher learning. Two minutes of research would have revealed this, if the "non compos mentis" who wrote it had taken the time.
