Greenport, Long Island, New York
Greenport is a village in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York, in the United States. The village of Greenport is located in the town of Southold and is the only incorporated community in the town.
Greenport is a major port for its area, having developed strong fishing and whaling industry. More recently the tourism industry has grown substantially too, especially in the warm summer months. This is due in part to Greenport being a three way link for travelers taking the Long Island Expressway towards New York City, crossing Shelter Island to Sag Harbor, or riding Cross Sound Ferry to Connecticut.
Greenport was first settled in 1682. The village was previously called Winter Harbor, Stirling, and Green Hill, and was incorporated in 1838. Greenport was once a whaling and ship building village, and, since 1844, has been the eastern terminal station on the north fork for the Long Island Rail Road. Many of the village's older structures are included in the Greenport Village Historic District, added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
Greenport is known for its tourism during the summer. Most of the tourism stems from maritime activities, as well as proximity to the more than 40 vineyards on the East End of Long Island. It has many small shops and boutiques, ice cream parlors, bed and breakfasts, and restaurants ranging from fine-dining to paper-napkin crab shacks.
