I strongly advise you to follow MY directions, and not a GPS or MapQuest, or the like. Eastbound, take LIE Exit 66, Westbound take LIE Exit 68, no matter what your GPS says! Then follow the GPS Navigation.

The first place on the right is SMITTY'S Kennels, 103 Curran's Road (blacktop parking lot, black chain-link fence/gates, gray and white buildings).
