At New York’s eastern tip, Long Island splits into two thin peninsulas, called the South Fork and the North Fork. Each has its charms. The Hamptons, hub of the South Fork, have been luring R&R seekers for over a century. On the quieter North Fork—the narrow sister peninsula nestled between the calmer waters of the Long Island Sound and Peconic Bay—there’s a new energy infusing the leisurely stretch of farmland and vineyards. Get Wine Spectator's guide to the best spots for good food, drink and relaxation in one of New York's top travel destinations.
