Christopher Morley Park, The Best of Winter on Long Island

The facility, which is 200-feet by 80-feet, is used by recreational skaters and hockey teams. The ice rink opens the Saturday after Thanksgiving through mid-March (weather permitting).

Great food trucks of the North Fork

Cute and tasty, they’re gourmet restaurants on wheels.

A lot of adjectives can be used to describe the handful of food trucks that have popped up on the North Fork the past several years. They’re delicious and adorable, mobile and convenient.

But perhaps more than anything, we love these trucks because they are just so darn fun.

These aren’t your every day hot dog trucks. With menu items ranging from tacos and pulled pork sandwiches to Hawaiian pizzas and egg sandwiches, the fare is unique and diverse, with each truck carving out its own niche.

You’re sure to see these trucks at your favorite wineries and events this summer. Here’s your chance to learn their stories ahead of time.

The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum

“The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum — a unique combination of mansion, marine and natural history museum, planetarium and park — is dedicated to the education and enjoyment of the people of Long Island and beyond. This mission shall be achieved through the thoughtful preservation, interpretation and enhancement of the Eagle’s Nest estate as an informal educational facility. Many exhibition and program themes focus upon Long Island’s Gold Coast Era. Programs also concentrate on William K. Vanderbilt II’s desire that his marine, natural history, and ethnographic collections promote appreciation and understanding of the marvelous diversity of life, other cultures, and scientific knowledge. Planetarium programming, more specifically, focuses on scientific knowledge and seeks to capture Mr. Vanderbilt’s sense of adventure and exploration through state-of-the-art entertainment.”
