"The Hamptons Mystique" began around 1870 when residents of Westhampton Beach, or Ketchaboneck as it was then known, started providing lodging to travelers who reached the area via the newly constructed Long Island Railroad spur from Manorville. This practice soon spread to other parts of the Hamptons and it was not long before tourism became the most important aspect of the regional economy, moving past whaling, fishing and farming as inhabitants' primary source of income.
The "Greater Quogue Westhampton" area is actually comprised of several communities: the Incorporated Village of Quogue, Incorporated Village of Westhampton Beach, Village of Westhampton Dunes, and the unincorporated hamlets of Quiogue, Westhampton, Remsenburg, and East Quogue… all beautiful, each of them exclusive, and all offering something to the prospective visitor seeking to find that special vacation or year-round home. Indeed, "Greater Quogue Westhampton" has become one of the largest growing vacation communities on Eastern Long Island as many of the seasonal visitors fall in love with this part of the "Hamptons" and decide to make their home here.
This area is bounded on the West by Remsenburg, on the East by East Quogue, to the North by Gabreski Airport, , and on the South by the Great Barrier Beach and the Atlantic Ocean…on the west end of which is West Hampton Dunes and Suffolk County’s Cupsogue Beach.
Today the "Greater Quogue Westhampton" area offers its residents a truly high quality of life, its community activities provide a sense of identity, while its schools and governmental facilities are among the finest available. Our community boasts two state-of-the-arts libraries, the highly acclaimed Westhampton Performing Arts Theatre offering year-round entertainment , many excellent restaurants and a multitude of shops offering something for everyone.
The celebrated "Hamptons" quality of life is being enjoyed here by more and more people every year.
