Culture & Commerce
Residents enjoy Remsenburg’s no-stoplight culture and its lack of a business hub. Yet local pride is in evidence, as represented by the Remsenburg Association, a nonprofit devoted to maintaining the rural character of the hamlet — and discouraging development. The Remsenburg Academy, formerly a boys school dating from 1885, is the venue for ArtRemsenburg, a series of cultural events focusing on painting, photography, sculpture, and mixed media. Remsenburg Marina, on the hamlet’s west coast across the bay from Eastport, offers dockage, boat sales, and repairs.
