Lying ninety miles east of Manhattan and bordered by both Long Island Sound and Peconic Bay, Greenport has long been known as a boater's paradise. Part of the town of Southold, this Long Island beach town is noted for its lively mix of ethnicities and its contrasts-old-time New England rectitude giving way to a growing artistic community. In stunning photographs, Greenport portrays this place of hearty good spirits, with its legacy of fast boats and rumrunners, hardworking artisans and their grateful descendants, and notable independent figures such as Kofi Annan, and three-time America's Cup winner George Monsell.
