Commerce & Culture
You can spend days just reading the historic plaques, and there’s so much more: scenic docks, farm-to-table cuisine and area wines, old Victorians, and lovely beaches. The deep-water harbor is an authentic working port, and the diversions of Shelter Island are just a ferry ride away. Front Street and Main Street, which are perpendicular, hold much of the village’s commerce and gastronomy. Little Creek Oyster Farm & Market, with its seasonal menu, is a local institution; Crazy Beans is the quintessential town diner; and Claudio’s offers Monday lobster specials and jazz on Saturday evenings. The East End Seaport Museum, a history-drenched place for discovering the village’s maritime lineage, includes a saltwater aquarium and several Fresnel lenses.
