TO Custer Observatory
Take the Long
Island Expressway (called the "L-I-E" by Long Islanders)
to its last eastern exit, Exit 73. From that point you'll still
have about 19 miles to go. At the exit, take Route 58 east for about
4 miles to a traffic circle. Continue around circle and straight
out the other side. At that point the road becomes Route 25 (east).
Continue for the next 15 miles, and take it slow because the local
police are very aggressive about speeding. As you enter the Village
of Southold and just before a Gulf station, you will see signs for
the Custer Institute on your right. Immediately after the
Gulf Gas Station, make a VERY SHARP right turn onto Main Bayview
Road. About 2 tenths of a mile after the turn, and on your left
side, you will see the brick building with the dome on it. Parking
is on the street (face your headlights AWAY from the viewing area).For
more information about the many activities here, Custer's phone
number is (631)765-2626.
