Curbed Cup, the annual virtual award for the best neighborhood of the year, is officially kicking off! This week, we’ll be calling for readers to cast their votes. Each poll will only be open for 24 hours, so make sure to get your vote in!
The south-of-the-highway hamlet, part of Southampton Town, is mostly known for its beaches and its real estate. The area lacks a central village, though it is famously host to Wölffer Estate Vineyards and their tasting room located off Sagg Road. As far as restaurants are concerned, there’s the Old Stove Pub and Townline BBQ.
While there isn’t much commercial activity in Sagaponack, the beaches are probably the town’s best asset. Sagg Main Beach is always packed in the summer, and oceanfront private property is heavily sought-after in Sagaponack—and with price tags to match. The town has some of the most expensive real estate on the East End.
Quogue & East Quogue (14)
Sitting west of the canal, Quogue and East Quogue are close in proximity to Westhampton. Due to their location, real estate tends to be much less expensive in Quogue and East Quogue, and they do have a strip of restaurants and shops which gets busy both in the summer and the off-season.
While Quogue and East Quogue have their fair share of summer visitors and weekend tourists, they do maintain more of their population than Sagaponack does after Labor Day, keeping the area busy year-round.
So, who will advance this round? In the 2016 Curbed Cup, Amagansett beat out Quogue and East Quogue in the very first round. Sagaponack also lost in the first round to Westhampton, but just by a tiny margin. But it’s up to our readers to decide which town advances and gets closer to the title. Polls are only open for 24 hours, so make sure to cast your vote!
