No, there should not be a space between long and island… as a Queens born and raised gal, we say longisland as one word…longyland…
I have written about NYC (the city aka Manhattan) pet friendly but that is not the same as the island and queens… so am going to write here about the choices of places that are pet friendly in my home neck of the woods.
Now when I think of LI, it is mostly Nassau county, there is also Suffolk and other counties, it is a BIG place most people do not know when they think of NYC. Or they might have heard of Fire Island. There are also a lot of historic places, like Teddy Roosevelt and FDR lived.
There are a bunch of pet friendly hotels, cannot recommend any until we choose one, or a few and go and stay in them but for now…
pet friendly B&B’s
this one at the Hampton’s says it is dog friendly but does not specify policy, there are a few rooms that are dog friendly and there is a charge/fee
pet friendly with prior notice East Hampton’s, seems the most pet friendly
a few more pet friendly B&B’s at the Hampton’s
Pet Policy: $49.00 pet fee per night, per pet. Please never leave your pet alone. Pets must be leashed when on the property.
found another but it only allows 30 pound and under dogs and charges $100 fee, pet tolerant not dog welcoming
here are some near the wineries but do not specify which are pet friendly or not so you will have to find out
As a kid, we loved going to Jones Beach or Far Rockaway beach… are they pet friendly? We also liked to visit Rocky Point, way way way out on LongIsland… is it pet friendly? How about Fire Island?
no pets allowed at Jones Beach, bah humbug
Rocky Point, N.Y.
This Long Island town allows dogs on its beaches, within certain limits: They must be kept on a leash and are allowed to frolic in the waves only during the mornings and evenings in the summer. (Any time is fine in the winter.) Over time, the area has become more dog-friendly
other dog friendly beaches on LI
Eugene Nickerson Beach Dog Run | Long Island
The lesser-known alternative to the more popular Jones Beach and Robert Moses Beach, Lido Beach comes out on top for its privacy and dog-friendly policies. An enclosed dog park with separate areas for big and small dogs gives dogs of all sizes some room to roam. While dogs are not allowed on the beach, except on leash during the months of September through March, the dog run is an opportunity for socializing between your dog and some new furry friends.
How to get there: Take the LIRR to Island Park. Take a waiting taxi the 10 minute ride to Long Beach.
Montauk Beaches | Long Island
With no leash laws in site, dogs are the masters of their domain on Montauk’s beaches. Before 9am and after 6pm, let your pooch parade around spots like Gin Beach and Hither Hills State Park. Enjoy a splash through beautiful Block Island Sound, favored by surfers for the consistent waves. Parks and beaches in Montauk are open from sunrise to sunset for your exploring pleasure.
How to get there: Take the LIRR or the Hampton Jitney to Montauk. Beaches will be about a 10 minute walk or bike ride.

Barrett Beach, one of the narrowest parts of Fire Island, is one of the few beaches in New York that welcomes your puppy. Take a special charter ferry from Patchogue, Long Island and pay approximately $5.25 for your dog to ride the ferry. Take the easy stroll from the dock to the ocean-side beach, or head to the picnic area where you may kick back and enjoy a snack with Fido. To get some shade, follow the forest trail along the short boardwalk. Dogs must be on a leash no longer than six feet.

Upstate in the Adirondack Mountains where I went to camp as a teenager, at Camp Somerhill, near Lake George, in Warrensburg, there is a camping place with a swimming beach for dogs, called Daggett Lake. There is also hiking and vacation rentals that are pet friendly.
