Wikipedia: Montauk, New York
Montauk /ˈmɒntɔːk/ is a census-designated place (CDP) that includes the hamlet with the same name in the town of East Hampton in Suffolk County, New York, on the eastern end of the South Shore of Long Island. As of the 2010 United States Census, the CDP’s population was 3,326.

The CDP encompasses an area that stretches approximately 13 miles (21 km) from Napeague, New York, to the easternmost tip of New York State at Montauk Point Light. The hamlet encompasses a small area about halfway between the two points.
(...)
Montauk is considered a beach resort, using its position at the tip of Long Island to promote itself as “The End” or “The Last Resort”, and has become one of the busiest tourist locations in East Hampton. It has many restaurants, bed and breakfasts, and hotels, and is a popular vacation spot in the warm months.
