Phyllis Braff contends that this painting depicts Three Mile Harbor on the coast of Long Island. The harbor is named for its three-mile distance from East Hampton. Thomas Moran had a home and studio nearby and spent several months there in 1888. The artist first traveled to eastern Long Island in 1878 and painted numerous scenes in the area.
