Southampton is a station on the Montauk Branch of the Long Island Rail Road, on North Main Street between Prospect Street and Willow Street in Southampton, New York. (Prospect and Willow Streets are on the west side of North Main Street, but the station is located on the east side.)

Southampton station was opened in February 1871, then razed and rebuilt in 1902. The station is part of the village's North Main Street Historic District, which has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1986. A freight house was also added across the tracks from this station, but it was severely neglected in recent years, and finally demolished in 2006.

Station layout

The station has one eight-car-long high-level side platform on the south side of the main track. Two siding tracks are on the north side of the main track.
