    And how far is Higbie Discount Liquor (West Islip) from Massapequa, timewise?

    From Oakbeach to Midtown Tunnel: 1 hour (assuming no traffic)

    Throw traffic in there and you can easily multiply that time period.
    So, given, that Amber Lynn Costello was a Craigslist escort and that a lot of people commute into NYC from LI, it looks like, she lived in the middle of business. I take it, there are also trains/bus-lines to Manhattan?

    I'm sure there must be bus lines, but I don't ever remember anyone taking them - everyone I knew took the Long Island Railroad. The railroad line that goes along the southern side of the island has Babylon as a main hub; from there, you can take an express or a local to Manhattan. There is also a connection in Babylon that heads to points east. Some of the local stops, for a rider heading east from New York City (30 years later, I can still hear the conductor saying this stuff) are Massapequa, Massapequa Park, Amityville, Copiague, Lindenhurst, and Babylon. A rider heading further east would change there, then get to Bayshore (due north of Oak Beach/Gilgo, btw), Islip (quite a bit east of West Islip, which is actually also west of Bayshore), Sayville, etc. People who want to visit the towns on Fire Island (east of Oak Beach, and also east of the Robert Moses public beaches) take ferries, which I recall taking a good 20 minutes or half-hour to cross the bay. There's a ferry from Bayshore to Kismet (the first, most westerly Fire Island town) and another to Ocean Bay Park. Further east, in Sayville, there's a ferry to Cherry Grove (a gay mecca). A round-trip ferry ticket is $17.00 (wow, that's gone up since the 80s!), a one-way railroad ticket from Babylon to New York City is $13.50 in peak hours, $9.75 off-peak.

    So, with that express train, Amber Lynn would have been in Manhattan in like 30-45 minutes as well? Or even faster? Then it was possible, she served both markets, NYC and LI as also Megan Waterman did.

    THe fastest train from Babylon to Manhattan is the 6:06am (or as we call it, the 6 o clock flyer). It gets to Penn Station by 6:50am; and I can get down to the financial district by 7:15am via subway. If you catch an "express" train you are looking at a little over an hour. Its 99% business professionals, and construction guys on these trains. Losers dont wake up that early to goto work.

    Do any locals know when Cherri Bombs changed it's name to Cherri Blossoms? Or know how long they went under that name? Thanks.

    Is there one with the word "peaches" or one with "angels" in the name?

    Right, the Edison Strip. But I'm wondering specifically about Cherri Bombs, and when it had the name change to Cherri Blossoms , and when it changed back to Cherri Bombs.

    There are none I know of in Massapequa. Farmingdale, yes. Cherry Bombs is also a swingers club in the back as I have been told recently. I have never heard of 'Blossoms" but now that I google I see what you mean. There are street walkers in that area as well. Right out in the open.
