About Sag Harbor

Sag Harbor is a village in the "Hamptons," Suffolk County, New York.  The village is situated for the most part within Southampton, as well as within East Hampton.  The "downtown" includes Main Street, the Whalers Church, Whaling Museum, and Old Burying Ground;  downtown Sag Harbor is characterized by the windmill that sits atop the tourist information center.  Sag Harbor, founded in 1707, was once a whaling village and port, and was mentioned in Moby Dick by Herman Melville.  Sag Harbor today has an active harbor.

Downtown East Hampton is our favorite place to dine, shop, and recreate.  Our favorite beach in the Hamptons is Main Beach, on Ocean Avenue in East Hampton.  Our favorite "chain" stores in East Hampton include the Coach Factory Store and Tiffany & Co.  

"East Hampton is a peculiar mix of rustic charms and urban taste, local year-rounders and vacationing celebs, and simple seaside pleasures protected for the seriously rich.  During the off-season, though, you can still glimpse patches of the "real" Hamptons, with the colonial dignity, gorgeous homes, long sweeps of beaches abutted by grassy dunes, and casual-chic eateries. . . .Founded in 1648 and "discovered" by society as an escape resort in the late 1800s, it was later the destination of artists like Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollack (and, more recently, Eric Fischl and Julian Schnable), who came for the big sky and golden light.  Today East Hampton is arguably the East End's most fashionable and preferred town and beach, confirmed by a new wave of 1990s summerers from the West Coast's film industry and Manhattan's fashion world."  1,000 Places to See Before You Die, by Patricia Schultz
