Area Guide

As you drive out east from the City, the landmass of Long Island splits in two: on the South Fork are the tony towns of East Hampton and Montauk; on the North Fork, farmland and wineries unscroll all the way to the ocean. This is pastoral Americana fueled in recent years by creative folks looking to get back in touch with the land. At the tip of it all is the town of Greenport, which for four centuries has drawn pioneering settlers whom today we’d call entrepreneurs and influencers. No one comes to this fishing town to see and be seen. You come to unplug, to reconnect, to take part in the Long Island activities, like extracting the last piece of knuckle meat from a freshly-caught crab or spotting the constellations beside a beachfront fire. Stop by to have a look, or, better yet, participate. Leave the air kisses to the other fork; on the North Fork, we’re keeping it real.
