We traveled across Nassau and Suffolk, from Elmont to Montauk, capturing the scenes of the day and speaking with Long Islanders. Scroll down to see updates spanning the entire day from our journalists, influential Instagram users and people all over LI. For more photos, click here. For a video of the day’s events, click here.
