The town of Sag Harbor was first settled sometime between 1707 and 1730, as a major port and whaling village. International ships and the whaling industry began in East Hampton, but its port was too shallow and Sag Harbor quickly became the new port.
Sag Harbor was the first designated Point Of Entry for customs in New York. The whaling business collapsed in the late 1840s with the discovery of coal oil. Then Sag Harbor became an industry town.
Today, as you stroll down the quaint streets, you will see Greek revival mansions, old Victorians, charming capes, and authentic saltbox homes.
Sag Harbor properties enjoy a location approximately 100 miles from New York City, and is accessible by luxury bus liner, the Long Island Railroad the Long Island Expressway and Connecticut ferries. The historic village offers magnificent Sag Harbor real estate, many fine restaurants and boutiques and is home to the Bay Street Theatre, the legendary American Hotel, the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum and the first Customs House in the United States.
