The Creek
Enjoy the Beautiful Hamptons






 

 

Location
Westhampton is often referred to as The First Hampton because it is the closest to NYC. You will enjoy avoiding the bumper to bumper traffic that can occur on Montauk Highway through the rest of the Hamptons to Montauk. Located directly south of Riverhead at the head of the Peconic Bay, Westhampton is ideally positioned for quick visits to other Hamptons villages on the south fork, Riverhead, or villages on the north fork.

History and Culture
The “Hamptons Mystique” started here in 1870 when travelers coming via the newly constructed LI Railroad spur started renting.It was not long before tourism became more important to the area’s economy than whaling, fishing and farming. Brushy Neck Lane was a duck farm until the 1980’s, when LI Duck was produced by independent small farmers. You can see new houses on the block where the farm used to be. The duck farmer’s son still lives on Brushy Neck Lane.

Westhampton Village Green
The pride of Westhampton Beach’s downtown area has always been the village Green commanded by its picturesque Gazebo. The mayor sometimes performs wedding ceremonies there. In the summer, the Gazebo serves as a bandshell for open air performances every Thursday evening. The Village Green also hosts many special shows, such as the Crafts Fair in June and the Outdoor Art Show in August.
