Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Long Island, New York

Long Island is an island in New York State, east of Manhattan. It runs northeast from New York Harbor, between Long Island Sound to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. Long Island is made up of four counties - the New York City boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn, along with Nassau and Suffolk counties. In contemporary usage, the name Long Island generally refers only to Nassau and Suffolk counties, as distinct from New York City. Long Island's nearly 7,500,000 residents are divided among widely-varying communities, from the 19th century factories and modern cityscapes of the western boroughs, to the fishing villages, wealthy resort towns and beaches of the east end.

European settlement in Long Island began in the early 17th century, with Dutch settlers establishing themselves in the west, and English Puritans from New England in the east. Through most of the 19th century, Long Island remained rural and agricultural. The Brooklyn Bridge provided the first permanent link to the continental United States in 1883. Railroads, bridges and tunnels made travel between Long Island and New York City faster and easier, and the towns in central Long Island soon became commuter suburbs. After World War II, City planners like Robert Moses and William Levitt developed highways, parks and housing in Nassau County, which was the fastest-growing county in the country between the 1950s and 1970s. Industry was not neglected; Long Island was a prominent aviation center in the 20th century, home to Grumman Aircraft, Republic Aviation and Fairchild Aviation Corporation. Long Island is also known for its research and high-tech facilities. Brookhaven National Laboratory, which opened in 1947 on the site of a former army base, employs nearly 3,000 researchers in nuclear physics, chemistry, environmental sciences and other disciplines. Stony Brook University and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory also conduct medical and scientific research.

Long Island's history encompasses a wide range of industrial and construction activity, making asbestos exposure an ongoing concern.
