Bridgehampton L
Southampton is a town located on the southern fork of Long Island in southeastern New York. Though not officially a part of the prestigious Hamptons area, Southampton is often included in the district, and has the same sort of atmosphere of cute, boutique downtown shopping areas, private beaches, and luxurious summer mansions.

The land was originally inhabited by the Shinnecock Indians, until the land was purchased from them by settlers coming from Lynn, Massachusetts in 1640, after which it became a tiny colony of a handful of families. It was named after Southampton, England.

Today, Southampton is known for its relaxed charm, Hamptons-esque beauty, beaches, boutique shops, downtown area, expensive mansions and beach houses, and equestrian gatherings.
