Amagansett

Amagansett is a beautiful hamlet on the south shore of Long Island, with a long history of whaling, fishing, and socialites.


Its name comes from a Montaukett word for "place of good water," referring to a local spring, and in many ways this name holds true today. It is a place of beautiful water, historical interest, and contemporary cachet.


The appeal of Amagansett is centuries old, and in recent decades it has become a hot spot for celebrities.


In the 1950s, Marilyn Monroe spent a summer there with Arthur Miller, and more recently Amagansett has been called home by a variety of well-known residents, including Alec Baldwin, Kim Basinger, Paul McCartney, and Jerry Seinfeld.


Founded in 1680 by English and Dutch settlers and sometimes referred to as Skimhampton, Amagansett is located in East Hampton in Suffolk County, New York.


Many of the houses, B&Bs, museums, shops, cafes, and other buildings in Amagansett date back to the 18th and 19th centuries. Main Street is a designated historic district, which ensures that it will keep its unique, historical atmosphere.


With its proximity to the beach and its cooling sea breezes, sand, and surf, Amagansett is a perfect combination of age-old treasures and modern-day conveniences. It's a lovely place to visit for relaxation, and it's an even better place to buy a home, second home, or resort apartment.
