What's in a Name?
September 21, 2016
When Super Storm Sandy hit Long
Island in October of 2012, it created a “breach” or opening in Fire Island.
Since then, there’s been a fair amount of debate over what this new breach
in Fire Island should be called. Just some of the names we’ve heard would
include "The Breach," "The Breach At Old Inlet," "The New Inlet," "The New
Old inlet," and "The Bellport Inlet."
To many people this isn’t a minor issue. Our
recent article about the boat
capsizing in the breach has once again brought this
controversial topic to the forefront and we thought we’d ask you, our
readers, what you think.
What do you think the breach should be called? We’d like you to send us a
note telling us what you think the breach should be called and most
importantly, why. Why do you think that’s the appropriate name for the
breach? Send your comments to
