“One of the best things about East Quogue is that we’re not famous for anything, and we love it that way!” says Al Algieri, president of the East Quogue Civic Association. “It’s a working man’s town. If you got stuck on a road, an East Quogue resident would stop, pick you up, and drive you to the garage. That’s what we do in East Quogue. We’re not a big town, we’re a small town. And each of us knows our neighbors,” says Algieri.
The Town of Southampton recently received a $1 million state grant to fund an already-underway project of extending public water mains to some 100 East Quogue homes using well water after the Suffolk County Department of Health found evidence of contamination, according to Southampton Deputy Town Supervisor Frank Zappone. “East Quogue is a residential community with many small family homes, and the Town is glad it was able to provide this opportunity to address a potential public health issue and allows folks to have access to clean and safe drinking water,” Zappone says.
Other recent issues in East Quogue include residents deciding 642-889 against village incorporation in an October vote and separately whether The Hills, a planned golf course clubhouse and luxury home development, will get greenlighted which is currently in litigation, according to Algieri.
“East Quogue homes tend to be more affordable than other Hampton communities although there are plenty of high-end Postmodern homes on or near the water. There are many waterfront and beach communities in East Quogue because of the creeks and topography. These areas are desirable among second-home buyers and those looking for the easier weekend commute and laid-back summer living,” says Marcy Braun of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
