Southampton, settled in 1640 and incorporated in 1894, is the oldest English settlement in New York.

Southampton is one of several towns on the east end of Long Island, New York referred to as The Hamptons.

For over 100 years, The Hamptons have been a playground for wealthy New Yorkers who are seeking refuge from city life in the serene countryside and pristine beaches.
