Northampton is nestled in the popular area of Long Island considered “The Hamptons“. Travelers often have the idea that the area is home to a good deal of wealth. They also have a tendency to view it as a small town. While these might look like stereotypes, they’re actually both accurate assumptions. Its low population density gives the area a real small town feel that’s quite common among the hamlets which are within in Suffolk County, yet a far cry from downtown Manhattan.
