“The Hamptons” is synonymous with luxury.
The mere mention of the name conjures up images of poolside evenings, grand oceanfront properties, and endless days at the beach.
This famous peninsula served as a settlement for English settlers, and once New York's high society took an interest in its beaches and the picturesque villages that comprise it, The Hamptons became a summer oasis serving as a refuge for the most powerful families from the Fords to the Vanderbilts.
Little by little this new oasis would attract creatives and artists: John Steinbeck in Sag Harbor, Jackson Pollock in Springs, Andy Warhol in Montauk, and today Beyoncé, Calvin Klein, Madonna, Alec Baldwin and Martha Stewart among many others, have made their second residences in The Hamptons.
Hamptons Private invites readers to peek behind the manicured hedges at Amagansett, charter a yacht off the coast of Springs, experience the surfer's paradise that is Ditch Plains, and catch a polo match in Bridgehampton at through more than 200 illustrations and explanatory texts.
