Reviews :-

"If Long Island Alive is not the definitve guide book for Long Island travel, I don't know what is. This was my first experience reviewing a travel guide, and it was a delightful surprise. Anything the traveler could possibly want or need to know can be found between these covers.

Of particular interest to me was the Long Island history. Beginning with the ice age - which created the unique topography - to the Native Algonquian Indians, progressing through early Dutch and English settlers, the island's history is fascinating. Ms. Silverman also describes the geology and geography and provides detailed maps. It is a diverse land of pine barrens and beaches, state parks and golf courses, hiking trails and woodlands. I was thinking "Wow!" before I'd finished reading the introduction.

The book is arranged rather handily into distinct areas of Long Island - Nassau County, Suffolk County, and Fire Island. The author then breaks down each area into points of interest and backs up her information with first hand impressions, phone numbers, websites, helpful tips and intriguing tidbits.

Sources of transportation available by car, rail, bus, plane, plus directions are provided. Available lodging and restaurants in each area and price ranges are clearly listed. Whether you are interested in museums, the arts, farmer markets, romantic getaways, cruises, outdoor activities, family fun, or world class night life, that information is listed. There's something of interest for everyone and choices to suit every pocket book. This guide also contains practical information, such as banks, hospitals, veterinary clinics, houses of worship, and which destinations are handicapped accessible. If you're wondering if children or pets are welcome, you'll find that information too.

Long Island Alive is complete with any information the traveler could possibly want to know. And it's entertaining reading to boot. Highest recommendation." (Midwest Book Review)

"Even if I didn't already live here, this guide would make me want to hit the expressway and check it out. As I've come to know firsthand, there are many reasons to visit this stretch of land that runs east from Brooklyn and forks at the Atlantic Ocean. Silverman lists 10 of them, but she packs so much more helpful advice and fascinating information into this well-organized and thoroughly researched guidebook that it could inspire the most sedentary suburbanite, let alone the insular Long Islander, to look beyond their own backyard at the wonders that await. (Spencer Ramsey, Newsday). 

"Through the efforts of Francine Silverman, her meticulous research and personal observations, readers of this guide will be able to discover the reasons why Long Island continues to attract. This book will certainly broaden the horizons of its appreciative readers." (Michael Hollander, Long Island Convention & Visitors Bureau).
