21. There’s a wine country, and it’s pretty legit
You'll have to get someone to drive you from vineyard to vineyard, but to get there, take the train and drink on the way to warm up.
22. Nothing else in the world is like a Long Island deli, a magical place where you can name literally anything you'd like to see on a sandwich, and it's understood that they will have it
When you can get chicken cutlet with American cheese, bacon, and Russian dressing on a hero, it doesn’t really matter that their interiors haven’t been updated since the '60s.
23. Buttered rolls
Are basically a delicacy.
24. If you drive more than a mile in any direction and you haven't passed a 7-Eleven, you are no longer on Long Island
Doritos Loadeds for everyone!
25. Jersey is much, much worse
Actually, everyone already did know that one.
