I don't know about the Hamptons, but I think they are included. I never knew the term until Cam told me here, and I am from there. Shows you how much I know. And you can imagine the brain trust from Brooklyn that came up with the term. They like to think they are from Manhattan, even though they are on the same island as us. My family comes from Queens, can you tell, and I grew up in Oyster Bay(Billy Joel). But now I am in San Francisco, and god only knows what the abbreviation for us is, although I am very conservative compared to most here.
