Located at the centre of the Boston Harbor, Long Island is a historic island that is no longer open to the public. The island is home to a number of different structures, social service programs and one of the three Harbor lighthouses added to the NRHP, while having served as an important location for colonial tenant farmers and for several wars, including the Revolution.
Long Island is a part of the City of Boston as well as the Boston Harbor Islands Recreational Area, located in the Harbor. Spanning over an area of 225 acres, the island is about 1.75 miles long and can be accessed only via a causeway from the North Quincy Squantum peninsula to Moon Island and then the Long Island Viaduct, a bridge (now demolished), from Moon Island. The island is not open to the public due to old structures posing a danger, and entry into this restricted area requires prior permission.
