Long Island’s North Fork is home to a great many artists and craftspeople. The number of Greenport art galleries attest to that. Even a quaint, little village like Greenport has a booming art community.
Greenport Village is a historic town between Southold and East Marion on Long Island’s North Fork. Its quiet summer cottages and seafood shacks along the waterfront contrast nicely with the fine restaurants and upscale shops.
It is likely this cultural dichotomy that attracts so many artisans to the area. Greenport is chock full of studios and galleries displaying a wide variety of bright and unique creations.
