The Hamptons

The Hamptons

The Hamptons refers specifically to the towns of Southampton and East Hampton on the east end of Long Island, New York. These townships occupy the south fork of Long Island, which is the east end of the South Shore. According to the Census Bureau, the Hamptons have a land area of 552.14 km² (213.18 sq mi). Officially they also have 1,212.99 km² (463.34 sq mi) of water area. Their total population as of the 2000 census was 74,431 inhabitants. By far their most populous community is Hampton Bays. The next most populous are Springs, North Sea, and East Quogue.

As usual in a summer colony, parts of the Hamptons are a well known playground for the rich who own summer homes there as well as a seaside resort frequented by the residents of New York City during the summer months for weekend getaways. The Montauk Branch of the Long Island Railroad, Montauk Highway, and the Hampton Jitney provide connections to the rest of Long Island and to the City, while ferries connect North Haven and Montauk to Shelter Island and New England, respectively.

Many year round residents find the term "Hamptons" to be misleading and point out the many different qualities of Westhampton, East Hampton, and Southhampton. Even though the term "Hamptons" signifies wealth, many residents in the previously mentioned towns are in the middle to upper-middle income range.
