    I grew up on Long Island and there is actually a small bay on the south shore named after my father. I'd love to fly my drone there one day.

    I always see model planes being flown at the end of CR 111 in Manorville where there's a huge potato field and an equally large sod farm so there may be a club in the area or they are getting tacit approval from the property owners...but lots of open space there. One thing to check though is if it's 5 mi away from FOK. Spadaro air strip is nearby as well but very rarely used. You might also want to ask farmers in the Calverton area where there's lots of open space...even an abandoned airport in Calverton where the Navy use to fly their Grumman planes before taking possession.
