 It was once the cradle of aviation, it's where the Hamptons are located, and
 it lays claim to famous residents including Teddy Roosevelt and the
     With the opening of its newest corporate housing office, Long Island is
 now also home to Oakwood Worldwide.  Opened in January, the Long Island office
 joins other new corporate housing office locations, including in Nashville and
 Honolulu.  Oakwood's services also extend globally, with locations throughout
 the U.S., U.K. and in all the major business gateways in Asia, including
 Tokyo, Seoul, Guangzhou, Beijing, Bangkok and Manila, as well as scheduled
 openings this year in India.
     Oakwood's Long Island office opens in response to the growing demand for
 extended-stay accommodations.  Many Manhattan companies are finding Long
 Island to be an attractive location to relocate or expand their operations.
 Long Island's lower overhead costs and close proximity to Manhattan makes it
 an ideal place to conduct business.
     As Long Island previously had only limited corporate housing facilities,
 Oakwood saw this growing need and demand for temporary housing and soon
 established a solid network of spacious, quality furnished apartments in the
 area.  The Long Island office services the cities of Westbury, Melville, Glen
 Cove, Smithtown, Coram, Islandia, Holtsville and Hauppauge, and as far as Port
 Jefferson.  Likewise, Oakwood's newest office also opened to serve as a
 one-stop-shop for businesses and individuals requesting extended-stay
 accommodations on the largest island in the continental U.S.
     "We could not be more pleased with our new Long Island location," says
 Gavan James, senior vice president and general manager, Oakwood Corporate
 Housing.  "Oakwood is committed to providing the best corporate housing for
 our growing customer base outside of Manhattan, and I am confident that our
 team in Long Island will provide our customers with the same high-quality
 accommodations that they have come to expect from Oakwood for more than 45
     Along with world-class, personalized service, every guest will enjoy

 office's day-to-day operations and housing requests will be managed by Account
