We are a married couple, a writer/entrepreneur and artist who live mainly in New York City and spend as much time as possible in East Quogue.
We were working long hours in Manhattan and our children were young, so we decided to rent a summer house in the NYC area. Over the years we rented houses in many different areas, including Connecticut, Fire Island, Westhampton Beach, Remsenberg, and Hampton Bays, before finally renting in East Quogue. We fell in love with the area's proximity to NYC, since it is only a 1 1/2 hour drive to Manhattan. The Hampton Jitney is only two blocks away, so a car is not absolutely necessary. And it is a small town, with all the good that comes with it, such as less traffic and unpretentious neighbors. But it so very close to all the beauty of the Hamptons area, including world-class beaches, restaurants, shopping, etc. For us it is the best of all possible worlds.
We purchased our home becuse we fell in love with the location in the village area of East Quogue. We loved the front porch, the wonderful piece of property on which the house sits, and the good bones of the house itself. Being within walking distance to the town and Hampton Jitney stop was important to us, because although we have a car, we felt that it was necessary to have a house that could be enjoyed without having a car and expending fossil fuels unnecessarily. One can easily walk or bike to the town market, farmstand, or Seven Eleven, and It is possible to bike to the supermarket, and even the ocean beach (our teenage son does it frequently but we confess we haven't).
