Get to know Eastport

Closer to the western edge of the Hamptons than it is to the center of the region’s action, Eastport is a charming hamlet that converges on Long Island’s southern coast. What began as two aquatically-minded hamlets, Seatuck and Waterville, eventually consolidated under the Eastport banner. Today, the area has the feel of a salty coastal village, with a few artsy boutiques and a string of antique shops. As you would hope for and expect in any of these hamlets, villages, and towns near the shore, waterfront dining is on the menu in Eastport. Slightly further inland, treat yourself to some comfort food classics. Eastport still nods to its past, a past that happens to be rife with ducks. Cornell University’s duck research lab recalls an era of duck farms, which made Eastport the duck capital of Long Island at their beak, er, peak.

Living in the Hamptons

A conglomerate of towns, hamlets, and villages along the scenic shores of New York, the Hamptons name carries a heft of weight behind it. For some, the Hamptons double as a location and a lifestyle: the lavish lap of luxury outside the ever-churning grind of New York City. It’s where the level to which oceanfront property is coveted can only be matched by that of a tee time. For others, well, the location and lifestyle criteria still apply, albeit in a far more laid-back manner. So if your idea of “escape” doesn’t involve ornate gatherings and rubbing shoulders with celebrities, worry not: there's a section of the Hamptons carved out for you too. Overall, the area still has a rural atmosphere, calling back to a history rich in agriculture and fishing and cementing its reputation as the archetypal summer getaway spot.
