Greenport has been named by Forbes Magazine as one of the 11 prettiest towns and villages in America.
Greenport is a place that “perfectly mixes unpretentious Americana with the trappings of the modern food and wine scene — quaint summer cottages push up against old-school seafood shacks and fancy restaurants,” writes freelance travel writer John Giuffo.
