Local Area Information

Southampton is an incorporated village in Suffolk County’s Town of Southampton on the South Fork of Long Island, New York’s renowned East End. It lies southwest of Water Mill, south of Shinnecock Hills and Tuckahoe and west of the Shinnecock Indian Reservation. The coastline is hugged by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Shinnecock Bay and offers captivating water views and access to the open ocean waters.

With an area of 6.42 square miles in the 2020 US Census, Southampton was the largest village in Southampton Town and the third largest among Long Island’s 96 villages, next to Lloyd Harbor in the Town of Huntington and Old Westbury in Nassau County. Named in honor of the Earl of Southampton, the village is the oldest among the neighborhoods in the posh summer holiday getaway called the Hamptons and is considered one of its two most prestigious communities.

Southampton has been home to several prominent families, such as the Eisenhowers, the Fords and the Vanderbilts. Today, it remains home to quite a number of billionaires and is a favorite premier summer destination of the rich and famous for its seven miles of oceanfront with fabulous fine-sand beaches. It is two to three times more densely populated than the rest of the Hamptons areas and is the most developed and diverse. It is considered the South Fork’s commercial hub.

Single-family homes largely constitute its residential neighborhoods along with co-ops and condos, among which are those at Farrington Close and Whitefield. Homes tend to be very expensive, especially in the Estate Section north of the oceanfront, and some historic properties are particularly remarkable for their architectural and historical origins. Some of the country’s most expensive luxury properties include the waterfront homes along Gin Lane and Meadow Lane, sometimes also called Billionaire Lane.

The dwellings vary from the more modest to mid-sized 4-bedroom homes to more than twice as large residences, and plenty have pools, master bedrooms on first floor and other features. The property inventory also includes rentals, new constructions and vacant lots. Southampton uses the 11968 ZIP code.

The most popular feature of Agawam Park is the 40-acre Agawam Lake, which offers 1.92 miles of lakefront, fishing, and boating for Town of Southampton residents. Fishing is also allowed for non-residents if accompanied by a town-licensed guide.

This is the village’s main beach, and has picnic tables, concessions, and restrooms, and is the only lifeguarded beach in the area.
