bpoerio, the East End consists of the Town of Riverhead, the Town of Southold, the Town of Southampton, the Town of East Hampton and the Town of Shelter Island, and each of these towns, except for the Town of Riverhead which has no villages, only hamlets, within that town, includes numerous villages and hamlets.

NYS Geographic Glossary and Excellent Long Island Geographic Resource may be of some help to you in understanding the geography of "Lawn Guyland".

On LI, You Ain't Where You Think You Are, rev. 1 may help you understand the great geographic confusions caused by non-conforming ZIP Code postal zones.

When you do find a house that you like, you can find out in which community (city, village or CDP) that house is actually located, which is oftentimes different from the community named in that house's mailing address, by using the Census Bureau's online address search function. (CDP, or Census Designated Place, is the Census Bureau equivalent for a hamlet in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.)

And, very importantly, among other things, the Census Bureau's online address search function also indicates in which school district an address is located.

The school district is important because, as Elke Mariotti points out, your property tax depends more on which school district a property is located rather than in which municipality it may be located.
