Webster is a village in Monroe County, NY. The village and town are named after orator and statesman Daniel Webster.

Southeast is a town in Putnam County, New York, in the southeast part of the county. The first settler arrived around 1730. The area first exploited was called "The Oblong," and was outside of the land claimed by the Philipse Patent. The Town of Southeast was founded in 1967, and formed the southeast corner of Dutchess County, NY, whose northeast corner was the township of North East, New York (now part of Dutchess County). In 1795, the land that had been Southeast and Frederickstown (now Kent) was divided into four townships, the present Southeast, Carmel, Kent, and Patterson, the latter two known at first as "Frederick" and "Franklin." Southeast lost its northern half, and expanded slightly to the west. Its most densely populated area in the town is the Village of Brewster, New York.
