How is the Long Island CS community?

Hey Long Island CouchSurfers! I'm Karen - born and raised in St. James, NY and now living as an CS Ambassador for San Francisco.

I often wonder how the CouchSurfing community is doing on Long Island. Is it being participated in as a collective local community at all? I don't see any weekly/monthly meetups on the group page. Is there even enough interest to bring a group together on a monthly basis?

Very interested to hear your thoughts on this! Let me know either by replying here or message me on CS. Thanks in advance. :)

Hi Karen,
Unfortunately, the span of Long Island is several hours from West to East, and with so much spread, it may sometimes be difficult for people to arrange common events. Though it has been known to happen! I haven't been around for years due to school, but I've noticed that individual LI regions have sprang groups, and they have a lot of success in organizing local gatherings. I suggest checking those out!

Thanks Claire! I have family spanning from Brooklyn to Greenport so trust me I feel you on the distance thing. Still, I will be sure to check out any group activity when I visit my home island. :)

I am in for a weekly or monthly Long Island meeting. Prefer Nassau county but maybe we could alternate Nassau/Suffolk.

Hi Judy,
i agree. i am from New Delhi , India , and have visited Hicksville last year and Port Washington this year for giving lectures on spiritual and motivational topics over lunch. i love the beautiful country-side of LI , and would like to join your weekly / monthly get-togethers.
Some couch surfers from LI have attended my lectures and lunch sessions.
