This is me and my buddy Chuck last weekend on the ferry that goes from Greenport, Long Island, to Shelter Island. I know March isn't exactly prime Long Island boating season, but when it warms up, I suggest you take a cruise to Greenport, Shelter Island, or both. There's great sights to be seen and plenty of waterfront dining, shopping, and nightlife in the area. It's really just a great place to kill a weekend. Plus, there's plenty of worthwhile vineyards just a stone's throw from the docks. Vineyard hopping is good times (and it's directly correlated to why I look so "tired" in this picture). Anyhoo, the North Fork of Long Island—check it out.
