EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Fishers Island, NY

Pros: you are forced to drink yourself into a grave.

Cons: people are stuck up snobs and the beaches are LOADED with tons of rocks - WOST BEACHES EVER! - unless you have a pass or get thru the guards...

This is a good place to send your worst enemies and tell them that they'll have a blast!

General info: no fast food, movies, shopping nor mall! - total waste of money! It is the reason behind the saying why New Yorkers are the way they are...
