Picture of the Week: Defining The Hamptons

An analysis of the playground of America’s super-rich


It’s the time of the year when the elite think about heading off to the South of France, Tuscany or in the case of Americans, The Hamptons. Our Picture of the Week is of a map of the latter that comes complete with descriptions of the types of people who flock there each summer.

Shared on the website Judgmental Maps, this image provides an amusing and somewhat accurate analysis of what goes on in The Hamptons. It certainly made us laugh.

    1. Anything less pleasant I cannot imagine. I have yet to meet a civilised, rich(note the rich) American.
      To spend time in the Hamptons would, for me, as hell like as having to spend time with vulgar oiks like
      Phillip Green or Milord Sugar. A week, once spent in Nantucket was enough for me.
      By the way, why do US border people behave like total arseholes? Maybe it’s a rhetorical question….

    2. But, I fully admit that I am fairly discerning about those I socialise with. And my social life, having ranged through the myriad social strata of American life, convinces me that the ultra rich are fairly common: it’s not their fault. If you are isolated in the US the only self improvement revolves around making even more money that you can possibly need. Mind you, us English, are always ready to leech off them by pretending to be much grander than we are.
