Greenport, NY

Greenport, NY

Greenport, settled in 1682, remains encircled by bucolic landscapes and is a low-key and peaceful seaside village. Because of its deep and protected harbor, Greenport became a major whaling port between 1795 and 1859 when more than 20 whaling ships berthed here. The town was also a very busy shipbuilding center.

By the mid-1800s the menhaden fishing industry employed thousands of people. During the first half of the 20th century, Greenport became a huge oystering center. When the oyster industry began to shrink, Greenport turned to tourism and became a destination for global visitors. Greenport is still the annual site of a tall-ship rendezvous but now they come for fun rather than commerce.
