The hottest summer place East of NY
Fire Island is a tiny island accessible only by ferry, a little over 2 hours from New York. It is a place of privacy, protected from prying eyes, and a haven for the LGBT community for many years.
It is an island of contrasts in the summer, with partygoers running amok and the temperature rising quickly in pick-up areas.
But Fire Island can’t be summarized as a place of unbridled sexuality. A red-hot real estate market has attracted millionaires from the community who gather every year to raise funding for the LGBT cause at a time when no right can be taken for granted.
