ABOUT OUR MARKET

At the heart of the Hamptons is Sag Harbor, a world-renowned port village welcoming ships and visitors from across the globe to enjoy a vibrant year-round community, shops along a historic Main Street and some of the finest dining on the East End. Sag Harbor’s narrow streets are lined with one of the greatest collections of 18th and 19th century homes in the country, and the village and its surrounding communities served by The Sag Harbor Express —from Sag Harbor to Bridgehampton and Northwest to North Sea, East Hampton and Southampton — boast some of the highest household incomes in America.

Sag Harbor today is changing rapidly with new development bringing even greater wealth and sophistication to the village. The Sag Harbor Express aims to serve this new community as well as those that have called Sag Harbor home for generations.
