Glass Expo Northeast™ ’19 is headed to the Long Island Marriott in Uniondale, N.Y., March 27-28. The event is specifically designed to address the needs of the architectural glass and metal industry and features exciting and essential educational programming, vital networking opportunities and the region’s top suppliers.

With all the excitement happening on the show floor it’s easy to forget that you’re adjacent to the largest city in America and surrounded by a million other things to do. Previously, we gave you a few ideas, but here’s a list of even more things to do nearby that might just entice you to extend your visit:

Long Island Aquarium

Long Island Aquarium features one of the largest all-living coral reef displays in North America. You can also experience year-round sea lion shows, a 120,000-gallon shark tank, numerous touch tanks, butterflies from all over the world, and more than 100 exhibits and interactive experiences.

Montauk Point Lighthouse

Commissioned by George Washington and completed in 1792, Montauk Point Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse in New York State. The building, which still serves as a functioning lighthouse, provides complete and unrestricted views of Block Island Sound, the Atlantic Ocean and beyond.


Adventureland has been Long Island’s favorite family amusement park since 1962. The park features more than 30 adult and kiddie rides, an arcade, restaurant and gift shop. At Adventureland, parking and admission are free, so you only pay to enjoy the rides. Adventureland officially opens for the season March 23.

With all that there is to do in Long Island, don’t forget the real reason you’re there – Glass Expo Northeast and the chance to bring in big business.

Glass Expo Northeast ’19 is co-sponsored by the Long Island Glass Association (LIGA), USGlass magazine,™ and Architects’ Guide to Glass & Metal.
