Long Island and New York City are teaming up to try to lure more foreign tourists.

Discover Long Island, the official tourism agency of Nassau and Suffolk Counties, will work with NYC & Company, its New York City counterpart, to lure tourists from Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Australia to Long Island as part of their New York visit.
