Get to know Peconic

A hamlet located within the Long Island town of Southold, Peconic occupies a prime position on the North Fork, stretching from the fork’s north coast on Long Island Sound to its curvaceous south coast at Little Peconic Bay. Additionally, with several major inlets in the south, Peconic enjoys more than its fair share of waterfront properties. The hamlet also has history of attracting artists and other high-minded visitors (e.g., Albert Einstein). The roughly parallel arteries of Main Road and Route 48 are where you’ll find a healthy sampling of farms, wineries, and restaurants.

History & Culture

A short-lived collective of painters, the Peconic School, were inspired by the area's landscape long before vineyards took the place of potato fields. Today, you'll find that some of East End's finest vineyards have a Peconic address—there's a dozen or so to crush on just along Routes 25 (Main Road) and 48. Wesnofske Farm, the last spud-grower in town, is still going strong, and it's just one of the many roadside produce stands you'll pass driving these scenic prongs of the North Fork.
