Village of Quogue

The Village of Quogue is located on the scenic south shore of Long Island, in the eastern end of Suffolk County approximately 80 miles from midtown Manhattan. The Village of Quogue, founded in 1659 came into its own as a summer resort community in the 1890s a period known in the Village as the boarding house era. Following lengthy debate, the Village was incorporated in 1928 thereby giving it the autonomy it needed to develop over the years at its own measured pace. Today, Quogue proudly stands apart from the “Hamptons Scene” focusing as it always has, on wholesome family oriented activities.

The Village of Quogue, incorporated in 1928, is positioned 40.82 degrees north of the equator and 72.60 degrees west of the prime meridian (40 degrees 82′ N, 72 degrees 60′ W). It has a land area of 4.2 square miles, surface water of 2.4 square miles, local population of 1,018 people within 11959 zip code according to the 2000 Census. Basically residential in character with a predominantly seasonal population, most residences are single family homes, although there are a smattering of multiple residential units located within the Village. The area south of the Quogue Street crescent is home to historic estates behind the tall hedgerows.  Commercial businesses are concentrated East to West along Montauk Highway and south of the villages sole traffic signal on Jessup Avenue, known as the heart of the Village. Old Country Road and the Route 104 crossing coming down from Exit 64 South of Sunrise Highway house the majority of the industrial offices, warehouse and service industry providers.
Quogue Village maintains its own police department to protect residents 24 hours a day. The Village Public Works Department maintains the local village streets and municipal facilities. The Quogue Fire Department is comprised of over 50 volunteer firefighters from the community. The Village of Quogue maintains one of the lowest tax bases on Long Island.
