How Northport Are You?

Finish the sentence: "You know you're from Northport if..."

How Northport are you? Did you grow up here? Moved here and raised your family in town? If so, you've probably learned a thing or two about this town over the years.

Northport Patch asked its Facebook fans to finish this sentence: "You know you're from Northport if..."

Here are some of the best responses:

  • If you know it's really called Sand City, not Hobart.
  • You know that Tuesdays are family nights during the summer on Main Street.
  • If you're terrified of LIPA winning its lawsuit.
  • That it was called Middleville Middle School, not Northpot (on Laurel Avenue).
  • If you know that school administration building on Laurel Ave was the original High School.
  • If you love eating candy at Harbor Trading.
  • If you know Stop and Shop as the big apple.
  • If you knew where the Post was.
  • If you knew where the tower house was.
  • You have a Shipwrecks Diner Christmas decoration on your Christmas tree.
  • You remember Laurel Hardware.
  • If you remember Carl's Mariners Inn, Henry Africas' Cafe and Anchor Savings Bank.
  • You look forward to the great Cow Harbor day every year.

  • You remember the jukebox at Crab Meadow Beach and the barn dances they had.
  • If the Firemen's Fair is a highlight of your summer
