EAST HAMPTON - Officials say ferry service will not be running in and out of the Hamptons.

Cross-Sound Ferry, which operates ferries between Orient Point and Connecticut, wanted to bring ferry service to the South Fork.

In 2004, the Town of East Hampton passed a law to ban the ferries.

Now, the United States Supreme Court is refusing to hear an appeal for the ferry ban.

The move means there will be no new ferry service from New England directly to the Town of East Hampton.
