While thousands of Long Islanders were stuck on the LIE in holiday traffic, a few decided to forgo the congested roads and hopped on a ferry to Fire Island to celebrate Labor Day.
With Hurricane Earl now a punchline, hundreds soaked up the sun and partied their way across the small island. Massive block parties formed with kegs in the street and DJs and bands providing the perfect end-of-summer soundtrack. As soon as it was over, and everyone had to reluctantly return to reality, the only thing on anyone’s mind was the anticipation of next year’s Labor Day party.
