Wainscott is a census-designated place that roughly corresponds to the hamlet with the same name in the Town of East Hampton in Suffolk County, New York, on the South Fork of Long Island. The hamlet was named after Wainscott, Kent, a village north of Maidstone, England, an area immortalized in Charles Dickens' Great Expectations and from which most of the early settlers of East Hampton came. The east side of Wainscott faces Georgica Pond. The exclusive Georgica Association has a 100-acre subdivision on the west side of the pond. The Association's most famous house Kilkare built in 1880.
Facing the Atlantic Ocean to the south, Wainscott has some of the most expensive property in the world. On its west is the village of Sagaponack, and on the east is the village of East Hampton. Other communities that border Wainscott are the CDPs of East Hampton North and Northwest Harbor to the northeast, the village of Sag Harbor to the north, and the CDPs of Noyack and Bridgehampton to the west.
Wainscott has a different landscape than East Hampton or Amagansett. The town is flat: houses border on potato or corn fields that then border on the dune and the ocean. Main Street used to have a general store and a post office. The post office eventually moved to a new building on Montauk Highway and the old post office became a private residence.
