It doesn't always do better. However, the north shore of Suffolk County is anywhere from 8 to 25 miles farther north than central park and a SE surface flow is coming over land for up to 25 miles. That and a lot less UHI, I'd expect average annual snowfall to be higher here. But there's always going to be the March 1914's and December 2005's (among others) to break our hearts. I haven't gotten over 1914 yet
Orient Point isn't a good example because it is very much maritime, but as the farthest north part of LI, it is farther north than West Milford (NJ), New City (Rockland), Armonk (Westchester) and New Canaan (CT). In some setups, that matters more.
