Welcome to the Long Island Sound. This long, narrow body of water stretches all the way from New York City to the eastern tip of Long Island and is surrounded by two states—Connecticut and New York. The Sound is 100 miles long and about 21 miles across at its widest point. Altogether, it holds roughly 18 trillion gallons of water! The average depth of the Sound is a shallow 65 feet, which means you could clearly see the Statue of Liberty if it was dropped into the water!
