a town in eastern-central Connecticut. Residents often have to explain that no, they don't live in the Hamptons, or in Massachusetts. known for making all sorts of bells, the nickname is Belltown and the high school's masot is the bellringer, or a man with a three cornered hat from the american revolution ringing a bell that looks strangely like a pirate. the redneck population is slowly increasing in east hampton, and people have been known to come "out of the woods" for its well known Old Home Day celebration. The town's high school and very nearby portland high school have an intense, and very bloody rivalry, especially in soccer. lake pocotopaug, although very green, is a wonderful place to swim, and participate in water sports of all types.
Wait where are you from?
OMG you live in the Hamptons? You must be rich!
Nah dude, East Hampton, CT ....
