It may be a part of Southold Town, but Fishers Island is closer to Connecticut than it is to the North Fork.
The Island of about 235 year-round residents is nine miles long and just a mile wide. Most of the roughly 2,000 people who visit the Island on weekends come from Connecticut and Massachusetts, since the only access from Long Island is to first take the Cross Sound Ferry to New London and to then take another boat to Fishers Island.
The journey to Fishers Island is marked by its beautiful lighthouse views. Here are a few of our favorite shots from a trip there last week.
