Bridgehampton is a hamlet (and census-designated place) in the South Fork of Suffolk County, New York, United States. The population was 1,381 at the 2000 census.

Bridgehampton is in the Town of Southampton.

Shortly after the founding of Southampton in 1640, settlers began to move east to the area known by the Shinnecock Indians as Sagaponack and Mecox. At the head of Sagg Pond the hardy Pilgrims established a settlement called Bullhead, later renamed Bridgehampton -- after the bridge built across the pond. Sagg Bridge was built in 1686 by Ezekiel Sandford. The Bridge was the link between Mecox and Sagaponack and gave this locality its name of Bridgehampton.

The boys basketball team at Bridgehampton High School has been the NY state small school champion numerous times in the '70's, '80's and '90's. Carl Yastrzemski, a Hall of Fame Baseball player for the Boston Red Sox, is a Bridgehampton native. He held the scoring record for basketball for 30 years and was a great outside shooter.
