Welcome to Hampton Bays
Settled as “Good Ground” in 1740, this became the main hamlet of the eleven in the area. Hampton Bays were formed in 1922 when they amalgamated together to benefit from the tourist boom their “Hamptons” neighbors were experiencing. Today, it is a hamlet in the town of Southampton, NY. Surrounded by three bays, the Great Peconic to the north with the Shinnecock and Tiana bays to the south, Hampton Bays is the second-busiest commercial fishing port in the state of New York.

The Ponquogue Bridge is a 2,812-foot-long bridge over Shinnecock Bay in the hamlet of Hampton Bays, New York. Maintained by the Department of Works for Suffolk County, the 29-span bridge carries two lanes of County Route 32 over the bay, connecting Hampton Bays to the eastern end of Westhampton Island. The original wooden drawbridge was built in 1930 and was replaced in 1986. The previous bridge is now used as a fishing pier.
