About The Hamptons, Long Island:
Situated on the South Fork of Suffolk County, The Hamptons consist of the villages and hamlets located in the Town of Southampton and the Town East Hampton. Historically, the area consisted of farmland and fishing communities. Many of the early settlers in the Hamptons came from Connecticut and Rhode Island, due to its proximity across the sound. Today, you can see the influence of New England in the architecture and aesthetics of the Hamptons, particularly in East Hampton Village and in Sag Harbor Village. The late 19th century saw an influx of artists to the Hamptons as the area became a rural retreat for many artists of the time. The community of Springs in East Hampton, and the Art Village of Southampton became home to many artist and art schools.
Today, the Hamptons see a significant increase in population during the summer months and on weekends, as the area has become a favorite vacation spot and getaway location for affluent New Yorker City residents seeking a change of pace from the city.
