The following example creates an attribute with long integer content. It then retrieves the value by casting to Nullable<T> of Int64.

XElement root = new XElement("Root", 
    new XAttribute("Att", 9223372036854775807)
);
long? value = (long?)root.Attribute("Att");
Console.WriteLine("Nullable long: value={0}", value == null ? "null" : value.ToString());

This example produces the following output:
