I often fly from Boston to Ocean City MD on my way to Myrtle Beach. 100% of the time I am brought down to 4,000 feet when I go over LI and not allowed to go back to my filed altitude until past ACY. Does anyone know if there is an altitude I can file (i.e. 10,000) that will eliminate this up and down? I have filed at 6 and at 8 but it's always the same. Next trip is August 2nd and I can try 10 but I hate the thought of the fuel I waste to go from Boston to Long Island climbing to 10 and then down and then up again.

Thanks.

The reason for the drop down is that the ATC Sector you work does not "own" that airspace. It is controlled by Philadelphia and so they routinely drop us down below the floor until we are out of the control area and then send us back up.
