East Hampton
Living in East Hampton

East Hampton offers excellence without compromise. Living here means rubbing elbows with celebrities and tastemakers from the arts, business, and political worlds in a village that embodies Hamptons style.

Just walking down Main Street is an exercise in beauty: from the 200-year-old elm-shaded lanes, to the world-class village shops and the historic buildings.

There is the thrill of Georgica Pond, a coastal lagoon where many A-listers have homes and where you'll find the famed Grey Gardens estate.

In fact, everything in East Hampton resonates. When you marvel at the view, you know that it inspired renowned artists Childe Hassam and Willem De Kooning as well.

East Hamptons Real Estate


From quaint fisherman's cottages to post-modern masterpieces, East Hampton homes for sale come in all shapes and sizes. The same is true of East Hampton apartments for rent.

Whether you want to retreat to a home in secluded woods or look out at breathtaking bay views, East Hampton can accommodate you with ease.

All in an area that is as famed for its natural beauty as it is for its storied history.

East Hampton History


Founded by Puritans in 1648, East Hampton Village was initially a farming community that also relied some on whaling and fishing.

By the late 19th century the extension of the railway led to the arrival of the first tourists, which in turn led in to the building of luxury estates by the most wealthy in the early 20th century.

By the 1950's an artists colony was established in East Hampton, popularized in particular by the Abstract Expressionists.

East Hampton Attractions


In a town that is over 370 years old, history plays a large role in what it has to offer.

For example, there's the 'Osborn-Jackson House' that was named for its first and last owners and built in the last quarter of the 18th century. Visiting gives you the chance to see how East Hampton residents used to live.

Based in another distinguished property is the 'Home Sweet Home Museum'. Originally built in 1720 by English settlers. This lean-to has historic artifacts that transport you to a different time.

More recent American history is on show at 'The Pollock Krasner House and Study Center', once the home and studio of painters Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner. The current patrons organize tours of the property during the summer months.

The art theme continues at LongHouse Reserve, a sculpture garden featuring pieces by Buckminster Fuller, Yoko Ono and Willem de Kooning amongst others.

Meanwhile 'Guild Hall' is an arts and entertainment center that is home to the 'John Drew Theater' where you can enjoy plays and live music.

Finally, 'Cedar Point County Park' offers 607-acres of natural beauty where visitors can camp, fish, hike and bird watch.

East Hamptons Shopping


There is a range of shopping options in East Hampton with distinctive stores that all offer something a little different.

Zimmerman is an Australian label that has ultra-feminine beach and resort wear that works as well in the Hamptons as it does on Bondi Beach.

Boho chic is on view at 'Figue', where jetsetters can hunt for the perfect print, embroidered cover-up, and the latest dresses.

'White's Apothecary' is a quirky gem that has been around since 1873 and features a stamped-tin ceiling that gives it a vintage vibe. It's the perfect place for high-end beauty brands and fragrances.

Another popular destination is 'Round Swamp Farm', a country market open in the spring and summer months.

Readers will enjoy the warm and welcoming 'Bookhampton', with its knowledgeable staff and lively events.

East Hampton Restaurants


Although East Hampton is a small town, it offers a large variety of restaurants.

'1770 House' as its name might suggest, has been welcoming guests for more than 250 years. In addition to offering accommodations it also hosts two dining scenes. Chef Michael Rozzi's refined New American dining upstairs and more traditional pub fare in the downstairs tavern.

'East Hampton Grill' is an upmarket bistro serving American standards like steak & ribs in a relaxed, airy environment.

Long time East Hampton favorite 'Nick & Toni's' offers wood-oven Italian and Mediterranean dishes in a bustling farmhouse setting.

'Smokin' Wolf BBQ' serves up the best southwest barbeque using only the freshest and finest ingredients.

East Hampton Nightlife


'Rowdy Hall', tucked away in the Parrish mews off Main Street, is a great place to enjoy pub food and craft beers in an old world atmosphere that includes a copper top bar and roaring fireplace.

Those looking for a more active evening out will enjoy 'The Leo', a dance club, which also hosts Brazilian restaurant 'Café de la Musoque'.

In nearby Hampton Bay, the long running hot spot 'Beach Bar' is a great place to dance the night away.
