The Village of Greenport is located in the Town of Southold and is large enough to be the only incorporated village in the town. In recent decades, this village has become renowned for its picturesque shops and fine dining; and it is the center of nightlife for the residence on the North Fork. Its heart and soul however, is its rich maritime history that continues today.
