About Fishers Island NY:
Fishers Island, about 9 miles (14 km) long and 1 mile (1.6 km) wide, is located at the eastern end of Long Island Sound, 2 miles (3 km) off the southeastern coast of Connecticut across Fishers Island Sound. It is about 11 miles (18 km) from the tip of Long Island, 2 miles (3 km) from Napatree Point, Rhode Island, and Groton Long Point, Connecticut, and about 7 miles (11 km) southeast of New London, Connecticut, from which it is accessible by plane or regular ferry service.
The island is part of the town of Southold in Suffolk County in the U.S. state of New York. It is a census-designated place (CDP). As of the 2010 census there were 236 people living year-round on 4.1 square miles (10.6 km2) of land; however, the population rises to about 2,000 during peak summer weekends as throngs from Connecticut disembark on the island.
Despite being a part of New York, in many ways the island has closer links with Connecticut, 2 miles (3 km) to its north, than with the rest of New York, 10 miles (16 km) to the southwest. Fishers Island’s zip code is 06390, corresponding to Connecticut zip codes that begin with “06”, while other residential zip codes in New York State begin with “1”. The island is the only point in Suffolk County to which telephone calls placed from the greater New York City area are classified as long distance rather than regional. The island is also part of the Boy Scouts of America’s Connecticut Rivers Council. The island is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Norwich(Connecticut), while the remainder of Suffolk County is included in the Diocese of Rockville Centre.
The only way for New York state troopers to get to Fishers Island is to travel through Connecticut and take the ferry from New London. Every athletic team at Fishers Island School plays against Connecticut teams. In fact, none of the teams from the school played against any New York team in 2011-2012. Trash from the island is sent to Wallingford, Connecticut. Residents also closely adhere to Connecticut’s state laws regarding recycling
