      Hey Lester, as a BGM, how would you describe the level of racial diversity in Fire Island?

      @Joetx: Not gonna lie to ya, it’s not super diverse, but there was a nice (and surprising) mix of people over all.

      Thank you for a wonderful guide. I am a 64 years young African-American male whose first visit to Fire Island was last Summer, at the invitation of a friend who, has a house there. The experience for me was exciting, anxious, and terrifying knowing I didn’t fit the stereotype of the average island goer.
      There is not much diversity there and I would not be able to hide there. I am an artist and the island is a tremendous source of inspiration along with peace and quiet. The fun starts on the ferry from Sayville.
      It’s certainly worth the trip, go, play, relax and enjoy.
      Have a great Summer!!!

      @Lester Brathwaite: Thanks, Lester, as well as bobbyo2, for the input re: racial diversity (or rather, the lack thereof) in Fire Island. Although I was expecting that, it’s disappointing nevertheless.
