THE POWER LIST
FROM THE PUBLISHER
Long Islanders tend to think we have the best beaches (Jones Beach to Main Beach), the best
hockey team (go, Islanders!), the best microbrews… and they are probably right.
Those who call Long Island home include everyone from Fortune 500 company leaders to
the top policymakers in New York State. It is a hotbed of innovation and scientifi c research.
And it’s launched the careers of countless leaders in the education, real estate, nonprofi t, and
healthcare sectors — not to mention media moguls.
In this special section, we honor Long Island’s most infl uential movers and shakerswho have
had the most impact on the lives of the rest of us. Aft er months of internal deliberations over
who deserves to be on the prestigious 16th annual Long Island Press Power List, these were
the people that made the cut.
Now, as we prepare to toast the Power Listers at Leonard’s Palazzo in Great Neck on Feb.
28, we hope you’ll join us in a tip of the hat to these thought leaders, policymakers, and
