Visit the Hamptons While in New York

If you appreciate the contrast between new and old, you will love Long Island. It’s a little paradise located in the North-East of the United States, extending off the coasts from the State of Connecticut to the south towards the Hudson. Long Island is known to be the theater of a real New York melting pot. Indeed, here, old buildings mix with the latest trendy clubs, the young people and the less young share the beach in harmony.

The Hamptons, the St Tropez of New York

Some history… Originally a simple part of the island where virgin nature and fishermen were immortalized under the brush of some great painters, The Hamptons have quickly become a dynamic destination. In the early 70s, this heaven on earth has become the new place to stay for the biggest celebrities. This area is now visited every year by New Yorker socialites and VIP who are looking for a little escape under the perfect breeze from May to September! (like Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband Matthew Broderick)
