The Hamptons refers specifically to about 24 villages and hamlets in the towns of Southampton and East Hampton on the far, east end of Long Island, New York. These townships occupy the South Fork of Long Island, stretching into the Atlantic Ocean. The Hamptons form a popular seaside resort, one of the historical Summer Colonies of the American Northeast. They have some of the most-expensive residential property in the U.S., with three in the Top 10 most expensive ZIP codes. Consequently, as a phrase, "The Hamptons" has been associated with great wealth.

The Montauk Branch of the Long Island Railroad, Montauk Highway, and the Hampton Jitney provide connections to the rest of Long Island and to New York City, while ferries connect North Haven and Montauk to Shelter Island and Connecticut.
