Quogue

Quogue

Quogue is located to the east of Westhampton, just 90 minutes from New York City, and offers a shorter, easier drive from the city than points farther east. Quogue is surrounded by water, from its western border Quantuck Bay, past Ogden Pond, and Penniman Creek to the east, and to the South its famed Dune Road along the Atlantic Ocean. Wherever you find yourself within Quogue, you are never more than a few miles to exceptional waterfront.

Founded in 1659 when settlers from Southampton purchased grazing land from the Shinnecock tribe, Quogue became a popular resort in the 1890s. Quogue’s oceanfront along Dune Road is lined with high-end homes today, but the village’s main road, Quogue Street, is lined with gracious historic homes, and the village prides itself on not being part of the “Hamptons Scene.” The quiet village retains a feeling of refinement and elegance, a reminder of a more gracious time. It has a small business district with a few shops, offices and restaurants and a picturesque pond right in the center of town. The Quogue Library is known for its impressive “Author Discussions” and varied classes and programs. The Village Hall is home to the Hampton Theatre Company, a professional troupe offering stage productions from September to May.

Local amenities include the Quogue School, an exemplary elementary school, residents-only Quogue Beach, and the private Quogue Field Club, Quogue Beach Club and the Surf Club at Quogue. The Quogue Club at Hallock House is both an upscale hotel with rooms and amenities available to the public and a members-only dining club.

Outside of town, the Quogue Wildlife Refuge is a 300-acre nonprofit preserve, open to the public 365 days each year and featuring walking trails, pristine views over an old ice pond, educational exhibits, and homes for a diversity of wildlife.

QUOGUE BEACH INFORMATION

“Quogue is a very quiet, small village with a lot of community pride. A big fundraising event every summer is the annual rubber duck race from the village bridge to the village dock, which brings out lots of kids and parents to cheer for their ducks. I love the community spirit here, and I especially love that the beach is so close to where I live. In the small village center there are charming storefronts with local businesses, and a small pond and park with a gazebo. Here you can enjoy a quaint village life without the bustle of a lot of seaside towns. And it’s easy to get in and out of town.” -- Molly Sheppard

“One of my favorite things about Quogue is seeing a trail of grandparents, their children and their grandchildren riding their bikes, duckling-like, down the lush and private-hedged streets of the Village. Quogue is a multi-generational and charming enclave that stands out from the rest of the Hamptons for its laid back, small town vibe. From its newly designated Historic District to its critically acclaimed Community Theater and revered Village beach, Quogue appeals to celebrities, Wall Street execs and anyone who values privacy.” -- Aimee Fitzpatrick Martin
