Long Island in August - am I crazy? (need advice)

Jump to last reply

We are going to a wedding in Tarrytown August 18th and have friends in Amagansett so I have had the idea of visiting both places over the weekend. Despite having lived in Connecticut for several years in the 80's I never spent any time on Long Island and don't know distances, roads or traffic. I know the Long Island traffic is really bad in the summer - especially on the weekends; is this a crazy plan??:

Arrive JFK (from SFO) around 8-9 pm on Thursday night. Stay someplace within 1/2 hour drive (hopefully on the shore or some place interesting). Putter along the coast Friday to Amaganset to have dinner with friends. Stay someplace around there (Shelter Island? East Hampton?). Drive Saturday morning to Tarrytown.

Thanks for any advice.
