Greenport, Long Island

This summer, we hung out in my home village and enjoyed its quaint charms! 

Greenport is on Long Island but a world apart from suburbia and strip malls.

The village is centered around a harbor with fishing boats, ferries to nearby Shelter Island, and the end of a Long Island Rail Road route. 

This little red school house used to be across the street from my house, until they moved it to the center of  the village.  It was an excellent place to hang out as children.

Got a thirsty horse?

Something I recently came enjoy is all of the antique shops--oh the pressed tin ceilings!

Amy liked the little mailboxes. 

And the old fashioned barber's pole.

A quintessential shot of the harbor.

Greenport was a happening place during prohibition!

If I could, I would spend a week every summer in Greenport!  If you're ever in New York City, Greenport is only a bus or train ride away.
