Useful Info

  • Note: We have made every effort to offer the most convenient schedules for your trip to and from Fire Island. In some instances there are no connecting services (where the LIRR schedule service and the Sayville Ferry schedule coincide at a reasonable time), or alternate services available.
    As for alternates, in most instances convenient connections can be made through Ronkonkoma Station - and we have noted on the Fairy Schedule. Ronkonkoma Station can be reached by taxi in about 15 minutes ($19). Occasionally the bus service will choose to take you to Ronkonkoma Station rather than Sayville Station.

    Mobile Phone Services
    Note: This is an island.
    Despite the location mobile phone service has improved in recent years. Most cell towers are located on the mainland near Sayville. So the bay-side, or houses on higher elevations will have better reception than beach-side houses.

    Coverage by service:

    Service Provider Mobile Service Data Service
    Verizon * excellent up to 4G LTE
    AT&T ** poor poor
    T-Mobile good up to 4G
    Sprint poor poor

    * Verizon has cell towers on Whyte Hall
    ** AT&T Micro Cells are available locally through TPP Wireless for $15/month (TPP Wireless account required)

    Internet Services

    Note again: This is an island.
    We are all sharing a link to the mainland, and that signal is wirelessly transmitted around the community. Given the circumstances the service works surprisingly well, however, it is effected by weather (rain, fog, and heat) and the number of users at any given time.

    Service Providers
    TPP Wireless (operated by Pines Pantry) - Hourly, daily, and seasonal residential service available. Dedicated technical support.
    Service covers Cherry Grove, The Pines, and Water Island.
    Contact Pine Pantry for more information at 631-597-6200 or TPPWireless

    Barrier Free offers Residential Service at (800) 982-3841
