Sag Harbor’s Billy Joel has contributed the voiceover to a new 30-second television spot by the I Love NY tourism promotion campaign.

“I’m Bily Joel, and New York is my home,” he says. “There’s no place like it in the world. My favorite place is Long Island. It’s an endless beach, from Long Beach, to Montauk, to Long Island Sound. With incredible fishing, Teddy Roosevelt’s home and the first port in the U.S.”

His famous song “New York State of Mind” plays in the background while images of sites such as Sag Harbor, the Montauk Point Lighthouse, and Hither Hills State Park are shown.
