The Village of East Hampton is a wealthy community on the southern coast of Long Island, New York, known for its green farmland next to scenic beaches, and its many famous residents. The village is a small, more exclusive area of the Town of East Hampton.
Founded in 1648 by English farmers, East Hampton remained a quiet farming community until the late 1800s, when it began to develop as a resort for the wealthy upper class from
New York City. It has become a major weekend destination for New York City, Westchester and Rockland county residents during the summer. The area around East Hampton is also referred to colloquially as " The Hamptons."
East Hampton's Main Beach consistently ranks as one of America's Top Ten beaches as ranked by "Dr. Beach" Stephen B. Leatherman. [http://www.drbeach.org/]
Parking access to the
Atlantic Oceanbeaches within the incorporated village of East Hampton is severely restricted from May 1 to September 30. In 2006 there were only 2,600 permits available for non-residents with a charge of $250. Residents can always get parking permits.
East Hampton's beaches are considered very desirable because of their clean white sands, the fact they are relatively accessible, and connected to the main land (rather than being on a
barrier island) and because there is a minimum of development adjoining the beach. None of the village beaches have an abundance of parking and this limits the crowd size. There is no restriction preventing people from arriving at the beaches via bike, foot or being dropped off. Severe restrictions on neighborhood streets surrounding the beaches prohibit parking.
The beaches of East Hampton village (from west to east):
*Georgica - This beach adjoining
Georgica Pondis popular with surfers because of currents arounds its controversial groins. The beach has bathroom facilities.
*Main Beach - The beach is the only one with a pavilion where you can get food and also has a limited number of lockers available to residents.
*Wiborg Beach - Has a parking lot, and is right next to Maidstone Club. It does not have a lifeguard. In the summer of 2006 it played host to the "hot" surf spot to be at.
*Egypt Lane Beach - This beach is sometimes called Maidstone Beach because of its close proximity to the headquarters of the
Maidstone Golf Club. However this is inaccurate since there is a Maidstone Beach on the bay in an unincorporated area of East Hampton. Main, Wiborg and Egypt Lane are immediately next to the Maidstone Golf Club course.
*Two Mile Hollow - This beach has the second largest parking lot of the village beaches.
There are also an assortment of beaches on
Long Island Soundand its bays on the north side of the town running the length of the town.
Famous village residents include:
Edith Bouvier Beale
Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn
