1956 called Napeague Bay
USGS Topographic map NAPEAGUE BEACH, NY 1:24,000, 1956
This proposal is to change the application of the names Gardiners Bay and Napeague Bay to reflect local
usage. The name Gardiners Bay has long been applied to the body of water in Suffolk County at the east
end of Long Island, generally south of Plum Island, east of Shelter Island, and west of Gardiners Island.
The name Napeague Bay has been applied to the body of water south and southeast of Gardiners Island.
