This is a music video of a song written and performed by Long Island local Billy Joel. Years ago when this song was written the shellfish and fishing industries were in sad shape on Long Island but luckily they have bounced back to some degree. As you could imaging fishing is a big part of the local economy here. For those of you who are not familiar with the term Downeaster it is one of the types of boat used in the fishing industry in the New England area of the USA. I hope you enjoy.
