Its present-day existence taken for granted as a landmark of The Hamptons, The Shinnecock Inlet is most noted for its utilitarian convenience. Allowing boaters to save several miles of travel when accessing the Atlantic Ocean from the bays, the inlet is also a bustling hub for commercial and charter fishing, known as the Shinnecock Inlet Maritime Center.

Despite its many advantages, the existence of the inlet was hard won, forming as a result of unparalleled destruction during the Great Hurricane of September 21, 1938.

According to the Army Corps of Engineers, the damage to Long Island included the loss of forty-five lives, the destruction of two-hundred and sixty-five homes, the flooding of twenty square miles of mainland and the formation of eleven new inlets, including the Shinnecock Inlet. If such conditions happened today, the estimated cost of the damage would be over $70,000,000.00.

Because of the creation of the Shinnecock Inlet and the widening of the Moriches Inlet to the west, which was formed during a 1931 hurricane, the natural flow of sand from east to west has been disrupted. Despite man-made efforts to remedy and reverse the process, there has thus far been a steady increase in beach erosion along the shoreline that has yet to be adequately contained.
