Several ferries a day make the crossing from New London, Connecticut, to the eastern end of Long Island, New York. The crossing to Orient Point, NY, takes about 1 hour 20 minutes. Driving the busy Interstate 95 corridor, crossing the Throgs Neck Bridge in New York, and driving the Long Island Expressway to Orient Point or Montauk Point would take at least 4 and one-half hours (providing you drove during off hours).
Fisher's Island is in New York but has a Connecticut zip code.
