Notes on the Geography of The Eastern United States: Long Island's North Fork: Photo 1
Here it is: Orient Point, the northern counterpart of the South Fork's Montauk Point. Plum Island is in the distance. Since 1954 it's housed the U.S.D.A.'s Plum Island Animal Disease Center, with strains of foot-and-mouth disease frozen in high-security freezers. Manhattan is about 120 miles behind the camera.
