~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Waterfront property – 2 ½ acres in the center of the tiny New Suffolk hamlet – has been preserved by NSWF as an open, park-like setting with only 2 buildings remaining from the past. Throughout its history, this property had been a very densely developed commercial site – a busy port and the home of a flourishing oyster and scallop fishing industry.

As the only deep-water marina on the Bay west of Greenport, it was the site of trials for the US Navy’s first submarine, the USS Holland. The port served as a submarine base from 1897-1905.
