This fall, Blog du Jour began to offer periodic lessons on how to correctly spell place names in the Hamptons and use the correct syntax.

In 2013, we learned to write “the Hamptons” instead of “The Hampton’s” and “Noyac” instead of “Noyack.” A few other memorable lessons included distinguishing between “in Quogue” and “on Quiogue” and “West Hampton Dunes” and “Westhampton Beach.”
