LET TER FROM T HE EDI T OR DEAR READERS, When I took the job editing AVENUE in October 2016, I stuck a note of warning to a corkboard over my desk. “There are no arbiters anymore,” it read. I don’t want to be an arbiter. I don’t think New York can be defined anymore by a list of 400 names, no matter how wealthy,

“NOWADAYS, THE A-LIST IS AS UNSETTLED AS IT IS EXCLUSIVE.”

accomplished or well born they are. But, fact is, people like lists. I like lists. I like finding my name on lists, even as I profess not to care about them. So I think my challenge is to give readers what we all want, but in a way that is challening, rather than merely affirming what they already think. For instance, is the South Fork of the East End of Long Island the only place in our region that matters in summer? Certainly, the Hamptons are the most magnetic vacation destination here, the most remarked upon and marketable string of beach towns this side of

EJ Camp and Kit Keenan

Saint Tropéz and Capri. But is the Shinnecock Canal a dividing line separating New York’s A-List from everyone else? You don’t have to look too hard to see the C-List there, too. So this year, we’ve ripped up our long-running Hamptons A-List with its tired, predictable and often uncomfortable mix of incompatible names stretching from the Blue Book to Page Six. In its place, we’re introducing our Hot 100, consciously recalling the legendary (and more to the point, ever-changing) Billboard chart of hit singles. It lists 100 notables we find compelling in the Hamptons, but also in other lovely places where AVENUE society spends the summer. We’ve tried to maintain that exploratory spirit in our other features as well. We sent Senior Editor Ben Diamond to Fishers Island, an incredibly attractive speck of land in Block Island Sound that’s in New York but can only be reached from New London, Connecticut. It’s arguably (with a nod to Cleveland Amory) the last resort of an earlier, less inclusive social era, but its Old School values retain an undeniable appeal. And while we couldn’t ignore the Hamptons (and why would we?), our cover feature pays homage to 13 lesser-known but stunning East End faces. It was photographed by the renowned portraitist EJ Camp in collaboration with Contributing Editor Sam Bolton. Camp, who lives between the city and Orient, is showing her fine art seascapes this summer at Elizabeth Dow and the White Room. Her portfolio is our way of saying it’s important to look beyond the obvious and keep your eyes open. Because nowadays, the A-List is as unsettled as it exclusive. And isn’t that a delightful contradiction?

For the first time ever, the Brooklyn Museum hosted the event, and they put on quite the soirée.

HOLLYWOOD MEETS MANHATTAN A GATHERING TO HONOR HBO’S RICHARD PLEPLER photographed by Getty Images

WHAT’S MORE NYC than Tony Bennett serenading the stars at Lincoln Center? In May, Hollywood arrived on the UWS to honor HBO and its chairman and CEO, Richard Plepler. After the Astoria-born singer reminded the audience that “The Best Is Yet to Come,” Nicole Kidman lauded Plepler for his dedication to greenlighting projects with predominantly female casts and production teams. Her husband, Keith Urban, closed out the night with “What a Wonderful World.”

SIGOURNEY WEAVER loves the New York Botanical Garden. On June 7, guests took in the new Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit while bidding farewell to the Garden’s outgoing president, Gregory Long. The Garden, which is the largest of its kind in the U.S., is full of “the most beautiful trees and plantings,” says Weaver. “Once you’ve come, you’ll come forever.”

THE CONSUMMATE EAST ENDER TONI ROSS DISHES ON FOOD, ART AND FELLOWSHIP by Debbie Bancroft

Q

I went to her recent Women Artists: Reshaping the Conversation at her namesake restaurant Nick & Toni’s. The event was also attended by with artists Sally Gall, Laurie Lambrecht, Sotheby’s Lisa Dennison and patroness of the arts Sondra Gilman. I nabbed her for our own conversation after all had scarfed down the restaurant’s legendary pizzas and asked: When did you start coming out here? I started coming out when I was about 19, and my father rented a house. But it wasn’t until I met Elaine de Kooning that I spent significant time on the East End. That was in about 1984. Elaine was interested in my artwork and encouraged me to spend a year out East. She helped me find a house and studio. With the community of artists out here it was like having my own private graduate program.

How have things in the Hamptons changed? The term “The Hamptons” has come to mean great wealth and excess to many, but that is far from the only thing this community is. The inequities are as great, or greater, than many towns across the country: I just think they are more hidden and sometimes more extreme. As a cofounder of the Hayground School, where upward of 80 percent of the students receive tuition assistance, I am acutely aware of these disparities. I don’t see myself in terms of philanthropy. I see

How do you merge your art, food and life? My art and my restaurants are part of the community I live in. Within that community, I have always had the sense of wanting to be a good neighbor. My work would be very different if I’d remained in New York City, as would my life in the food business. I’m grateful every day for the opportunity to be in such a special and beautiful place. 34 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018

myself as responsive to some of the needs of the community. And, plain and simple, when we are all responsive in this way, it makes for a better community Can you talk about the Hayground Chef ’s Dinner, which raises money for the school? It will be July 29 at the Hayground School in Bridgehampton. We are honoring Chef Jacques Pepin and will have a discussion between Monsieur Pepin and Chef Eric Ripert, with a five-course dinner prepared

My latest installation, Found Lines, will be at the upcoming “Beautiful Strangers” exhibition at the Berkshire Botanical Garden.

I don’t see myself in terms of philanthropy. I see myself as responsive to some of the needs of the community.

What is the most brazen thing someone has done to secure a reservation at Nick & Toni’s? I’ve heard, “I’ve known Toni for a very long time. He is a very good friend of mine.” Or, “I made this reservation months ago,” when we only take reservations 10 days in advance. Or the sweet husband who asked for a reservation on his anniversary. He sent us a copy of his marriage certificate to prove it. That all being said, I wish we could take everyone, all the time!

STATE OF THE A RT

THE ART OF THE STEAL

ONE MAN’S COLLUSION IS ANOTHER MAN’S IGNORANCE by Asher Edelman

44 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018

The business of art is a nest for hatching collusion and a welcoming home to ignorance.

JAMES DIGNAN REPRESENTED BY WWW.TRAFFIC-NYC.COM

T

his month, State of the Art offers a tasting menu of art frauds and scams. The business of art is a nest for hatching collusion and a welcoming home to ignorance. Just which is in play is often hard to discern, even for the discerning. These morsels are all true, although names have been changed to protect the perfidious—none of whom have been incarcerated or even indicted. They are still roaming the streets, wreaking havoc on galleries, auction houses, financial institutions and collectors. So, presented for your edification: a four-course meal of recent cases. Dear reader, since the justice system doesn’t do it, you get to decide the guilt, innocence or ignorance of the accused. Start with a certain fraudster—let’s call him Karamazov—who is desperate to bid for a valuable painting at auction. The difficulty being, said clever soul has neither the funds nor sufficient liquidity to get a paddle (i.e., the right to bid). Undeterred, Karamazov boldly declares that he has a “high-seven-figure balance” in his bank account. Included in the declaration are the coordinates of a major bank and the name of a minor officer: Let’s call him Dopey. The auction house sends a request for confirmation and Dopey responds quickly and in writing confirming the “high-seven-figure” amount. Karamazov bids and wins a major piece of art— trouble being, he has no money to pay for it. A collection process ensues. The auction house sues Karamazov who, in turn, sues the auction house for fraud, a common ploy to delay a hopeless defense. Dopey, having left the bank, is questioned about his role. He replies that he does not quite understand accounting though he confirms he did, indeed, certify the balance to the auction house. Did Dopey think high seven figures included the digits after the decimal point? Collusion or ignorance?


Behind This Door You’ll Find Sag Harbor’s Most Exciting Opportunity Ann Ciardullo and Keith Green Proudly Present 286 Main Street Sag Harbor Village The stately Main Street facade is the first hint of the enormity of this incredible Sag Harbor opportunity, ideally situated at the head of Glover Street, now recognized as the Village’s new Gold Coast. On any given day, you’ll choose between waking into town via Main Street, or down Glover toward the water and then over to the pier. Either route affords you the freedom to walk back in time, as you stroll past restoration after restoration……each seemingly more perfect than the last. People say this is Sag Harbor’s moment. And it may be. But it is also time for this home to be brought up to the standards we live by today. Much of the heavy lifting has already been done. The wonderfully landscaped yard now envelops a 40 ft. gunite pool and perfectly scaled bluestone surround. The screened porch has been expanded to assure plenty of room for morning coffee, lazy afternoon naps, or candle-lit dinner parties lasting long into the night. The front Parlor is one of those sun filled rooms that novelists write about; oh the stories it could tell. Six bedrooms as it sits today, or take the whole back of the second floor and create a new 500 sf. master suite with spa-like bath and, amazingly enough, water views.

46 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018

STATE OF THE A RT An Arab group purchases $40 million worth of paintings for a prestigious Middle Eastern institution through an agent we’ll call Romeo. Romeo says his client is royal and is believed, even though he, Romeo, was previously, if not widely, known as a purveyor of fake Jackson Pollocks. Romeo forwards the invoices to the local institution for payment, but no money comes. The seller’s agent asks both the purchaser and his agent to pay up but gets no response until certain mysterious “experts” communicate to the seller’s agent by email, though they imply they are in the same city where the sale was executed and the artworks reside. They also claim they have somehow examined the goods, though that’s not true. The “experts” haven’t seen the paintings, have expressed no interest in meeting the sellers or their agent, and either don’t have a telephone or won’t disclose their number. Based on the inspection that never happened, the “inspectors” then abruptly demand a 40 percent reduction in the price of the art. The sellers’ agent brings suit and begins asking questions. It emerges that this group has done this before, promising to buy art and other items, soliciting invoices and presenting them to local institutional buyers, who happen to be controlled by the fraudsters. Then, the scammers reach out to the sellers, demanding discounts based on the opinions of invisible “experts,” and when successful, pocketing the difference. Many sellers agree as the items have already been marked up enough to cover the discount. But our seller did not agree, and instead sued the buyer and agent in federal court. The buyer and Romeo defaulted by first appearing but then failing to appear in court. Romeo, O Romeo, are you a colluder or an ignoramus? Over the course of five years, an art trader we’ll call Lolo purchases art through a defunct out-of-state company that at one time, at least, apparently had a resale certificate. So the purchases, from dealers and auction houses, are made without New York sales tax being charged. Lolo has yet to be caught— probably a matter of time. But are the dealers and auctioneers in cahoots? Or just see-no-evil innocents? In 2016, Tolstoy seeks to refinance a work of art, claiming to have purchased it from Minskov two years earlier, and producing an invoice. He gets funds from a finance company and then, in 2017, Minskov claims co-ownership and places a lien on the work. The financier investigates and discovers that Minskov always co-owned the art and that the copy of the invoice given for financing had been tampered with, predated to 2014—by Minskov. Is Minskov a perp or a dupe? All of these art world players are still walking the streets, along with hundreds of others, many known to the art community and the authorities. Though there exist registers of stolen and Nazi-confiscated art, money launderers, forgers, and other forms of art crime, there is none for for these most insidious criminals and their collaborators. Law enforcement’s hands are mostly tied by lack of funds to pursue art crime. Legislation and regulation are severely wanting. Romeo, wherefore art thou? Just look over your shoulder.

ENDLESS SUMMER INSPIRED IDEAS FOR BEACH LIVING by Kelly Laffey

STRAWLESS SUMMER

A toast to American summer

It’s the summer of no straws on the East End, as the local Surfrider chapter has joined the worldwide movement to ban the disposable, plastic tubes, which threaten marine life. “[Straws] are more or less an easy target because in most situations, you really don't need [one],” says Colleen Henn, the Clean Water Coordinator of the Eastern Long Island chapter. “Since there is so much energy around the strawless movement, we decided to help urge [it] forward in our community by both educating consumers and urging restaurants to stop providing plastic straws.” A number of local restaurants have signed on, pledging to either go completely strawless or to provide alternative, eco-friendly options. easternli.surfrider.org

ROSÉ ALL DAY Rosé all day is obviously the Hamptons way. And there’s a whole host of new iterations to try this summer. New from Jon Bon Jovi and his son Jesse Bongiovi is Hampton Water Wine—“rosé made in France, enjoyed everywhere.” Debuting this year, too, is The Palm by Whispering Angel, from Château d’Esclans, the makers of Whispering Angel and Rock Angel. Also from France, Mouton Cadet has rebranded and relaunched in the U.S., with a portfolio that now includes both a rosé and an ice rosé. And, celebrating its 45th anniversary, Chandon California will release its seventh annual limited-edition American Summer bottles, including a rosé brut.

2018 is Strawless Summer on the East End

“We hope to find fewer straws lying on our streets, littering our drains and on our beaches.” Cool, Comfy Cotton

BACK TO BASICS

Cotton is the fabric of our lives, and in the Hamptons, there’s nothing better than the ultra soft Peruvian pima cotton used at Håndværk, a line of men’s and women’s clothes. The brand, which pays homage to the Dutch translation of 'handcrafted' and 'superior quality,' was developed by Southampton residents and husband and wife team Esteban Saba and Petra Brichnacova. “We work to ensure that all [our] clothes reflect the lifestyle we [try] to live and emulate: simplicity, functionality and appreciation,” says Saba. The design work is done in Southampton—“we are removed from the ‘high fashion’ scene of the city, and for that I am grateful." handvaerk.com

In addition to Sen, which is expanding this season, Highway will feature a pop-up of the city’s high-end Shuko on weekends through July and August; 75 Main has introduced a sushi menu; and David Bouhadana is bringing his Sushi by Bou show East, offering a $50 30-minute omakase at lunch and a $100 hour-long omakase at dinner in the

Healthy eaters will be happy to hear that yogini Lauren Musselman has stepped in to partner with Jon Krasner at Montauk favorite Salt Box. In addition to the restaurant’s classics, such as BBQ short ribs and truffle fries, the new menu features tofu tacos and quinoa salad. “Montauk in general is moving from just a party enclave to more of a wellness community, and we want to support that effort and encourage people to put smarter food into their bodies,” says Krasner.

Though the fact that Bouhadana flies fish into the oceanside retreat may sound counterintuitive, the imported sea creatures are as coddled as any Southamptonite. “We just made a deal with Blade to fly out our fish,” he says. Bouhadana plans to make the most of his work out East. “So many of my customers live out there in the summer and always talk about the shortage of great sushi, so we are here to fill that gap and hope to sneak in a little surfing on the side.”

terranean cuisine using Montauk’s seafood and produce. Look for such dishes as roasted tricolor cauliflower with farro, raisins, cashew tahini and mint; and lemon chicken with yogurt and rye berry tabbouleh. Jay Lippin, who served as executive chef at Odeon and Cafe Luxembourg, and was a winner on the Food Network show Chopped, has taken over the range at Baron’s Cove’s waterfront restaurant. He will be bringing a New American menu to the property and following in the steps of Matty Boudreau, whose roast pigs on Sundays will be a tough act to follow. Water Mill has a new Italian spot. Jon Albrecht, formerly chef de cuisine at Tutto Il Giorno, has opened his own place called Culaccino, where he will be serving up seared octopus, wild boar chop and pan-seared halibut among other dishes, and all desserts will be made in house. “I wanted the freedom to do my own style of modern Italian,’’ says Albrecht. One of the chef ’s innovations is an Instagrammable version of bucatini carbonara: the sauce is tucked inside an “egg yolk’’ made from vegetable-based gelatin colored with saffron and turmeric. When it’s cut open, the hot sauce flows out and is tossed with the fresh pasta. The restaurant also has a classic Italian bar menu and an outdoor patio for drinks. For those who love outdoor fun, Union Cantina has expanded its outdoor area, adding such lawn games as Jenga Giant, cornhole and bocce, and there are picnic tables for those who want to dine alfresco. The games may get particularly interesting after guests sample some of the 100 tequilas available at the bar. Not everything is moving East this summer.

unlike Milos or Avra, its imported whole fish will not be weighed by the pound. Another urban Hellenic favorite, Nerai, recently brought in Moshe Grundman, who served as sous chef at Michelin-starred Oceana, to introduce a more sophisticated menu. “Greek food is very popular now and everyone loves the fresh fish, but I wanted to do something a little bit more innovative, to make it more modern,” explains the Israeli chef. To this end he has replaced classic lamb chops with a dolma made of Swiss chard filled with shredded braised lamb shoulder, seasoned with cinnamon, cumin and nutmeg, and accompanied by heirloom carrots drizzled with Greek honey. His fisherman’s stew uses stone bass from Greece, black pepper, lemon, braised fennel and saffron.

HISTORICAL CACHET VS. COLD-HARD CASH

WHY A CHARLES GWATHMEY MASTERPIECE MIGHT GET THE WRECKING BALL by Christopher Cameron

H

istorical significance doesn’t sell Hamptons homes—size does. “Clients come to me and ask, ‘What’s the biggest thing I can build,’ ” says a prominent Hamptons owner’s representative and developer, who requests to remain anonymous. “Those homes are almost always modern [in design].” In the Hamptons, where cash is kindling, it manifests as a lust for openness—no matter how out of proportion. Noses always to the ground, developers are responding with minimalist McMansion spec homes that maximize ceiling height and square footage. Currently, a $53 million, 10,000-square-foot box is rising on Meadow Lane in Southampton. In Bridgehampton, on Sagg Pond, a 14,000-square-foot house shaped like a TV speaker is listed at $45 million. In Water Mill, a new 11,000-square-foot undulating “indoor/outdoor living concept“ wants $32 million. But in their wake, homes of significant architectural value sometimes fall. The latest victim could soon be 130 Bluff Road in Amagansett, a 1,934-square-foot, five-bedroom, three-bathroom house by the late architect Charles Gwathmey. Last year, it hit the market, and it’s currently asking $4.5 million. Gwathmey, of course, was one of the most celebrated home designers on the East End before his death in 2009. One of the famed “New York Five,” he designed dozens of sculptural homes in the Hamptons, all “site

and programmatically specific,” says Bette-Ann Gwathmey, who still calls one house her late husband’s most important work on Long Island. That site is the Robert Gwathmey residence and studio, which Gwathmey composed of gray cedar and primitive shapes for his parents in 1965 with a budget of $35,000. It was recognized as a classic of mid-century modernism almost immediately, and drew architects from all over the world to Amagansett. Gwathmey went on

Perhaps uncharacteristically, some brokers hope that the buyer won’t tear down the home.

in 1970, sits just across a hedgerow from that early masterpiece. “It’s a lovely house,” says Bette-Anne. “Someone would be very lucky to have it. I would hope they to design residences for Steven Spielberg, David Geffen, Jerry Seinfeld and Jeffrey Katzenberg. 130 Bluff Road, which Gwathmey designed for a friend

wouldn’t knock it down. I hope someone will appreciate it.” Perhaps uncharacteristically, the brokers hope so too. “Somebody might tear this down because the land is worth more than $3 million anyway. There is no protection. If someone wanted to develop a traditional house on the site they could,” says James Keogh of Douglas Elliman, who is marketing the property with brokers


Justin Agnello and Hara Kang. “But we would like to see it kept, especially since it complements the neighboring property.” The design of the house itself—essentially a small lookout tower, attached to an oversize tennis court by a long wall, set back far from the ocean—presents an obstacle, as do the rather dated interiors, with wall-to-wall carpeting being among the house's sins. “The guest rooms have a summer camp feeling. They are simple. The master bedroom is larger and nicer and the bathrooms were updated with marble tile,” Keogh says. “But the exposure to the south, the light and the tennis court view make the upstairs here feel different from any other house I’ve been in.” Keogh and his colleagues say that they are marketing the property directly to Gwathmey collectors, but that thus far they haven’t seen any interest. “We have reached out to people who own Gwathmeys and people who have put things into Gwathmey’s trust—people like Spielberg. But it’s always tough to get those people’s attention,” he says. “They may come to us. But it is really hard to find people interested in preserving this kind of home.” Keogh says the new, younger crowd in Amagansett has little interest in preservation and are rarely familiar with Gwathmey’s name. The clients who do ask for architecturally significant homes tend to favor new construction by Bates Masi + Architects or Selldorf. These buyers prefer linear, open homes far different from the ones Gwathmey designed. “They want ‘more’ minimalism,” he says. “This isn’t a modern house that everyone would love.”

But that certainly isn’t a death knell for the architect’s legacy in the Hamptons. As recently as 2014, a seven-bedroom house by Gwathmey at 733 Daniels Lane in Sagaponack sold for a whopping $20 million. At the time, it was enough of a premium to turn heads. “I guarantee you Gwathmey’s name lent cachet to that house,” said Gary DePersia of Corcoran. “It stands out to me because, while it had deeded ocean access, it was five lots back from the ocean. It wasn’t even a huge house.” Despite an East End market dominated by monster flat-roofed spec houses, the Sagaponack deal was at least some evidence that in the Hamptons, the cult of Gwathmey lives on—whether or not 130 Bluff Road is razed.

FISHERS ISLAND IS SO CLOSE—AND YET SO FAR, FAR AWAY written and photographed by Ben Diamond


A

sk a Fishers Islander for his thoughts on the stock market or on the country’s best golf courses, and he’ll talk your ear off. But ask about the island and what the Sicilians call omertà takes over. “They wouldn’t be pleased to see me quoted,” said one longtime Fisherite when reached for comment. More than one requested anonymity as a condition for conversation about the summer community. “It’s such an unspoiled place, and everybody prefers that it remain that way. The less known it is, the better,” said a resident. “You can be on the beach by yourself on a holiday weekend and not see another soul. There’s not anywhere else on the East Coast, from Maine to Florida, where you can have so much beach to yourself.” Fisherites come from the same stock as visitors to other Northeastern summer spots. “A lot of people come for July or August,” said Bunty Armstrong, the widow of long-time Whitney Museum director Thomas Armstrong. “They’re mostly from Connecticut and New York, but there are some Texans and some Bostonians.” Where they differ is their uniquely cultlike devotion to the place. Many of the families that live there have done so for generations. Some, like the fashion editor Polly Allen Mellen, have been going since the 1930s. Their numbers include the Gosses of Connecticut (among them former CIA director Porter Goss), the Keans of New Jersey (former governor Tom Kean), the Du Ponts of Delaware, and a number of equally influential figures who have managed to escape the public eye entirely. Yes, while the WASP aristocracy that once ruled America has mostly disappeared from view, it lives on at Fishers. Like the fictional village of Brigadoon, the island is a place that seems to exist out of time itself, where the conventions of the contemporary world do not hold. “The first time I came to the island, I felt like I was thrown back in time to my early childhood, when things felt different—smaller, slower, cleaner, safer,” said one longtime summer resident. The island hasn’t been entirely immune to the passage of time. “The world has changed,” said one resident. “In earlier days, you would never have seen a gay couple enter a house here. But that happens now.” But in the important ways, the island is the same place it’s always been. The herons, egrets and quails still come out when the weather gets warm. The private Hay Harbor and Fishers Island Clubs still offer world-class golf. And while the faces may have changed, the last names on the island remain the same. And that’s no accident. Part of that stems from location alone. Although nearer than other Old Guard enclaves like Bar Harbor or Watch Hill, Fishers is a real hassle to get to. Located eleven miles from the tip of Long Island at Orient Point and seven miles from New London, Connecticut, the island is far enough away that it can’t clearly be seen from either. Even after the three-hour drive to New London, it’s only halfway into a 45-minute ferry ride from the mainland that it even reveals itself. “It’s built into the geography of the place that it can never be that populated,” said one summer resident. Or, as the website for local realtor Shutters & Sails has it, “Fishers Island is the ultimate gated community—only the gate is a ferry.” 86 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018


“It’s such an unspoiled place, and everybody prefers that it remain that way.”

And though there have been proposals to connect Fishers to the mainland—usually as part of a bigger bridge between Long Island and Connecticut—for now, the ferry remains the usual way in. It’s all part of the exclusivity, making visitors feel like trespassers before they’ve even left the New London dock. “Are…are you staying with anyone?” the ticket agent will ask you if you’re unaccompanied, sure you’re engaged in subterfuge of some sort or, at best, very lost. The ride that follows offers a good illustration of what kind of people frequent the place. On my own journey, I shared a bench with two older women carrying L.L. Bean totes and wearing fleece—one emblazoned with the logo of the Women’s Open Golf Championship. These ladies were the classic Fisherites, wrinkled but fit, rugged in a way that their Hamptons counterparts simply aren’t. “Fishers is sort of the antiHamptons,” said one longtime summer resident. “Even going back several decades, it was the antiHamptons. And before that, it was an anti-Newport. Everything is much less formal here.” This is a mark of pride among Fisherites—nearly all seem to have a pronounced, almost gleeful disdain for the creature comforts of other resort towns. “This island has very little to offer for people who want to go shopping, or who want to go ‘out’ at night, or go to restaurants,” said Polly Mellen. Once you actually start to approach the island, the most notable thing is how little there is—no marina, no waterfront diner with a steering wheel on the wall, just a few small buildings, a desolate-seeming dock and lots and lots of rocks. Natural fortification like that served an important purpose once upon a time, stopping pirates from stealing the island’s whale blubber or something. Today they serve a different function. “Avast ye!” they seem to say. “This island has no hotel!” There isn’t a lot to do on Fishers Island, either—or at least, not much for the unconnected visitor. That’s partly by design—places full of amenities and destinations tend to attract unwanted attention. “One reason,” the social arbiter Cleveland Amory wrote back in 1952, “that everyone does not know about Fishers Island and Hobe Sound [a similar resort, near Palm Beach] is that these islands do not wish to be known; in fact, their anonymity has been largely responsible for making them perhaps the most formidable social resorts still in existence.” Though observers might quibble about the island’s relative formidability today, Amory’s words still ring true.

“As [visitors] get off the ferry, there’s just so little for them to do,” said Polly Mellen. “They can ride around on their bicycles, and go to the town, which has just a few shops, and that’s all. There are no beaches for them to go to except a beach called South Beach, which is very stony, and they can go to the one restaurant, which is called the Pequot Inn, and that’s it.” In fact, the island’s commercial prospects have only decreased in the past half-century. The movie theater present in Amory’s day (though even then, he wrote, there was “always a question each summer of whether or not it will be running”) is no more. Nor is there any hotel: the Pequot Inn, which until recently offered the island’s only public lodging, closed in 2011. (Though, as Mellen said, it continues to operate as a restaurant and bar—a small blessing for the bored children of initiates who return after reaching drinking age.) But even without a dedicated commercial district, Fisherites have their routine. “Every year it’s kind of the same thing,” said one resident. “Fourth of July fireworks, a sandcastle contest, cocktail parties for adults and some philanthropic matters.” “There were always cocktail parties when I was little,” remembered the writer Peter Heller, who from the late 1950s to the 1980s spent most summers on the island. “It was like a Cheever story—people were always showering after the beach, getting ready, and going off to cocktail parties.” Although, as one resident added. “There are not many places to go except other people’s houses.” Which is not entirely true. Those who have found full acceptance on the island can graduate to its most exclusive

88 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018

precincts: the clubs. Nearly all the island’s social life is concentrated around its two social clubs, the Hay Harbor Club and the Fishers Island Club. The Hay Harbor is on the island’s western end, not too far from the main road, while the Fishers Island Club is to the east, past a guarded gate that also protects some of the island’s homes (yet another exclusive hurdle!). The clubs offer golf, tennis, beach access and, most important, breakfast, lunch and dinner. “I would find it hard to be here were it not for the clubs,” said a resident. “Unless you have someone in your house who loves to cook or who is hired to cook. If you want to go out to eat, there is virtually nowhere to go. You could survive on the island without them, but it’s not something I would want to do myself. I’m not a good cook!” Members take many of their meals at the clubs—one estimated that she eats a full 25 percent of the time at hers. And owing to this, it’s no wonder that the clubs are packed— both, in fact, having waiting lists to accommodate the heavy demand for membership. With all that difficulty, why visit the island at all? There’s no real question there: it’s extremely beautiful, and uniquely so. Parts of it are like Long Island, others are like the coast of Maine, and some even feel like they’ve been airlifted from Waikiki. “Almost every house that you enter has an entirely different view,” said a resident. “There are so many twists and turns to the coastline that it’s like you’re on a different coast in a different part of the country wherever you go.”


“There’s so little to do... But us lucky ones can do everything.”

Although Fishers Island is not known for its retail, there are a few businesses in town, including the Beach Plum, a much-loved boutique (top left), and the News Café (right) an inexpensive deli open every day until 2 p.m. Some, like the Island Theatre (bottom) have closed

It’s easy to get lost, and easier still to drive the entire island without seeing anyone or anything. Right: The studio of Liz McCarthy, one of the fellows at Lighthouse Works Below: For all its isolation and exclusivity, Fishers is an astoundingly beautiful place, with vistas that bring to mind Long Island, New England and more exotic locales

That topography only enhances the island’s mystery. It has two main roads, with dozens of side roads that branch off before returning back. It’s easy to get lost, and easier still to drive the entire island without seeing anyone or anything. “There’s been a constant fight to maintain the year-round population, which has been declining since the ’30s,” said Pierce Rafferty, the director of the island’s Henry L. Ferguson Museum (and Barbara Bush’s nephew). The island was slow to develop—as late as 1876, there were only seven houses, since it was almost entirely owned by the Winthrop family, and operated as an offshore farm run by lessees. Despite being one of the first settlements in North America, Rafferty says, “You had no population here until it opened up as a resort beginning in 1877. The first land was only sold on the island in 1876. Up until that point, not one foot of land on the island had been sold. It had all been privately held.” Although in the 1920s there was a push to develop the island in the same way as other resort towns on Long Island and Connecticut had been, the Great Depression put a stop to that. The closure of Fort H.G. Wright in the late 1940s was similarly harmful, and precipitated a steady decline in population throughout the coming decades. “You went from a population in, say, 1960 of around 500 year-round to maybe 230 now,” says Rafferty. “On the other hand,” he adds, “You have a greatly increased summer population. It varies tremendously, but there’s certainly at least two or three thousand people on the island—and on July Fourth weekend, up to four or five [thousand]. In 1960, on a regular summer weekend, that number would have been closer to 1,200 in summer.” Of course, the island does encourage some visitors. There are the friends and relatives that come as guests. “I’m always bringing up friends, though some don’t turn into repeat visitors,” said one summer resident. “Some find the trip grueling.” For the past six years, the island has also been the home of Lighthouse Works, a public art commission and artist-inresidence program not far from where the ferry lands. From a pool of 1,200 applicants, four are selected to spend six weeks on the island. The plan was, as executive director Nate Malinowski put it, “Let’s just invite some artists to the island and see what happens.” The four women in the program when I visited acknowledged it was isolating—“We’re alone a lot,” said one—but all agreed that the slow pace made them more aware of their surroundings, and put them in a more reflective mood. “We go to the Pequot, too,” another added. And then there are the mainlanders. Though the island’s year-round population has diminished, Rafferty is quick to point out that that statistic is a bit misleading. “It’s not as though there are fewer people working on the island,” he says. “The shift has been that a lot of the work force comes in on commuter boats.” And indeed, there were plenty of laborers on their way to the island on my ferry, including an amiable African-American carpenter with whom I struck 90 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018


up a conversation. I asked him whether there was anything AVENUE readers should know about the island. “They got black people here,” he said. “Working.” Owing in part to the island’s high property taxes, the public school is another magnet for visitors—students, specifically. Leave on the 4:45 ferry, and you’ll be surrounded by schoolchildren returning to the mainland. Still, all of that can’t paper over Fishers Island’s biggest challenge: a place with no year-round population, sooner or later, will atrophy. And for the hardy folk who try to scrape out a living during the off-season, a real resentment seems to be brewing. A representative from the island’s Oyster Farm, which otherwise declined to have any involvement with this story, made it clear: “We would rather have more working people here than vacationing, leisure-seeking people.” While the older generations who once lived on the island may have been cloistered and private, they were polite to their less well-off neighbors in a way that simply isn’t the case today. In this regard, there is a similarity to the Hamptons—or at least, to the complaints about them. “This place has really gone downhill,” said one local, a remnant of a less rarefied time in the island’s history. “All the old money’s gone, and it’s been replaced by all this new money.” He recalled that Henry Luce III had once held a party to which he invited all his society friends, as well as plumbers, electricians and other working-class people, who in those days still lived on the island. “I couldn’t see that happening today,” he added.

Due to the island’s lack of children, some students at the Fishers Island School actually live in Connecticut, taking the ferry to and from school every day

“Excellence is an art…We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” -Aristotle This habit of excellence should be evident in the business life of every agent, and in the business culture of every firm through honesty, integrity, expertise and ethical conduct.

Excellent agents should always service clients through their professionalism, talent, market knowledge, discretion and skill. The best company culture provides the support and guidance to exercise the habit—and the art—of excellent brokerage.


PARTY CRASHERS Risks to Avoid When Entertaining at Home

W

hether hosting a birthday party or a charity gala, organizing a successful event requires looking beyond the festivities your guests will enjoy. To lessen the likelihood of accidents or injuries—not to mention the additional challenges if a lawsuit ensues—the insurance and personal risk experts at AIG Private Client Group recommend incorporating the following steps into your planning.

Hire reputable vendors You could be held responsible for problems caused by vendors (faulty lighting, food poisoning, a disruptive employee, etc.) if underlying insurance coverage is not in place. Obtain a signed contract documenting the function or service that the each vendor will provide. Get written proof that each vendor is licensed and bonded, if applicable. Vendors must be insured with appropriate coverage, depending on their service. Make sure that vendors are adequately supervised. A responsible representative should be on-site at all times that personnel are present. Create written property rules and a nondisclosure agreement to be signed by

vendors. For example, you may want to designate certain “no-go” areas or prohibit photos.

Be smart when serving alcohol This goes beyond not serving minors. In some states a homeowner can be sued if an intoxicated guest leaves and causes an accident or injury. Hire a professional bartender to help monitor alcohol consumption. Consider offering alternate transportation for guests. Keep a lock on your wine cellar, and ensure that guests to do not have direct access to bottles. If serving wine from your personal collection, ensure that the bartending staff know precisely what you want (and don’t want) poured.

Carefully consider activity choices Even when following proper safety protocols, accidents happen. Supply safety equipment, such as life jackets or bike helmets, or instruct guests to bring their own. Use professionals. For example, hire a certified lifeguard if inviting guests to swim. Have basic medical first-aid equipment on hand.

Ensure that activities are allowed by your local jurisdiction; obtain permits when required.

Other preventative measures Be mindful of media exposure. Be aware of any photographs that are taken, how they will be used and where they might be distributed. Ensure that walkways and stairs are clear of obstacles, well-lit and in good condition. Have these areas checked throughout the event, not just before guests arrive. Block off areas of your home that aren’t part of the party venue. Don’t assume that visitors will respect your privacy. Move fragile decor out of high-traffic areas. Lock up jewelry and valuables in a safe, or move them temporarily to a bank vault or other secure storage. Devise and enforce a guest list; hire a professional security guard to assist. Consider all variables and restrictions pertaining to parking. Consider relocating pets during the event. Even docile animals can lash out if they feel threatened. If children are present, assign adequate staff to monitor them and all access points to water.

Access to AIG Private Client Group is available through a select network of independent insurance advisors. 112 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018

What if I can’t find a good fit? Our Made To Measure and Custom Making services are quite rare nowadays. A new pattern has to be made and cut, since not everyone fits perfectly into a standard size, and everyone deserves the right fit. As for the accessories, we like to design and craft bags and shoes with details made for each guest that will fit into their lifestyle and wardrobe and will be enjoyed across seasons and trends.

FINDING YOUR INNER ELEGANCE

Q

A Florentine Leather Artisan Atelier Tells All

F

or the sixth season designer Jennifer Tattanelli opens her atelier in the Hamptons in a newly renovated space and adds a new location across the street, CASINI FIRENZE…by Jennifer Tattanelli, the renowned Florentine family store, which will carry a contemporary collection of shoes, bags, jeans, jewelry and beachwear. In her ateliers everything is possible, since guests can design their own special pieces, regardless if it is a leather jacket—the company’s iconic product—or shoes, bags, clothing and jewelry.

What makes shopping in your ateliers special? Florence, the Hamptons and the seasonal on Madison Avenue are beautiful yet welcoming locations. They are sophisticated and elegant without being intimidating. Our goal is to make the shopping experience fun and rewarding. We want each guest to leave feeling beautiful, knowing that they have found something that no one else has. Is it all about teamwork? YES! In your approach to shopping it is important how you choose the items and how well you work with our stylists to help them understand your needs. Most important you need to think about how you want to look from head to toe. Think always about the whole effect. It should say something

about you. It should also be a look you feel comfortable with, a look that reflects who you are. This is fundamental. Then make sure you have few basic quality pieces, as they can be easily mixed and matched. Look for quality in the fabrics, construction and details How do you work with your clients on finding their personal looks? We talk to them. We ask about their lifestyles and what their needs are. All of them are confident people who want a personalized look, something that expresses who they are without making them look like everyone else. They realize that they do not have to go overboard to look fashionable. I love simple, fitting pants, a classic white shirt and a fabulous lightweight leather jacket. As for the accessories, it is all about shoes and bags.

114 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018

A

We talked about fitting, but what should shoppers look for with regard to quality? Details, details, details! Examine the stitching, the lining, the zippers and the quality of the buttons. Look at the way the garment is crafted, and do not be afraid to ask. Touch and feel the materials, and inquire about the type of leather, silk, wool and cotton used to make the item you love.

Tell me about your famous shoes? Well long story short….I had a terrible accident and from 10 inch heels my life changed in a split second. I designed with a team of Artisans and Orthopedics a super comfortable and stylish line. From ballerinas to stiletto heels, sandals and tennis shoes come and try them on…you will feel it yourself Any last tidbit of advice? Don’t be afraid! Try new looks and find one you really love. We do have more than 250,000 different variants combining, shapes, material and craftsmanship, like the Optical Intrecciato for the bags….and many more, which we will be delighted to make just for you

GETTING BACK THE SKIN YOU LOVE Dr. Rita Linkner Shares Her Favorite Procedures for New Moms

T

he new mom is my favorite cosmetic patient. After sacrificing so much in trying to get pregnant, being pregnant, and breastfeeding, a woman goes through so many shifts when she becomes a mom. Here are the three most popular cosmetic procedures that I do as a mommy makeover. 1. Ultherapy in the Postpartum Belly: Great way to tighten loose skin in that trouble area that has been stretched with pregnancy and then recoiled post-delivery. Here, ultrasound delivers heat into the muscles of the skin that lie right beneath the skin’s surface helping build back collagen to tighten crepey skin in the months post-procedure. Usually, one treatment every three years suffices. Can be done as soon as six months postpartum. 2. PRP for Hair Loss: Postpregnancy and after breastfeeding, most women have a significant hair loss called telogen effluvium. Injecting into the scalp platelet-rich plasma, a protein made from your own DNA, is a great way to recruit retired hair follicles to start cycling back. This is something I did after having my second baby, and it worked wonders to turn me back into a “Chia Pet.” Requires three treatments done one month apart and should be started at the first signs of hair shedding.

3. CoolSculpting: Having a baby doesn’t have to change your body forever. If you are on a mission to get back to your prebaby body but feel as though there are trouble areas that you can’t seem to target with diet and exercise, then CoolSculpt is a great way to eliminate areas of pinchable fat. Using technology that freezes fat cells so they can be permanently removed, CoolSculpt requires at least two treatments done 4–6 weeks apart. The easiest to eliminate were love handles, bra fat and upper and lower abdominal bulges. At Skinfluence, we have two machines that permit us to DualSculpt two areas at once. A great lunchtime treatment. ✦

GOOD DAY, BICE! The Midtown Hot Spot Returns

“B

iCE is back!” says Peter Guimaraes, co-owner of the legendary Midtown hot spot. Yes, BiCE Cucina—the restaurant started in Milan in 1926, brought to New York in 1987 and now an international presence—has reopened at 62 West 55th Street. Long a hot spot for celebrities and power brokers—before politics was his main bag, President Trump and his family were regular customers—BiCE is the place to see and be seen, to hobnob and conduct deals. But it’s a world-class restaurant, too. “We make all our pasta in-house,” says Guimares. “I have a pastry chef who comes in at four a.m. every morning to prepare our pasta.” All the BiCE classics will be available, including veal Milanese, osso bucco, lobster pappardelle and salad, and the chicken and eggplant parmigiana.

But innovation is also on the menu. “We’ve introduced a new thing to New York called pinsa. It dates back to Roman times, actually before pizza, and it’s made with three different flours... it’s just a lighter, healthier, crispier, better-tasting pizza.” And big changes are coming to the restaurant itself. While the old BiCE only had ten tables outside, the new location “has probably one of the biggest patios in Midtown, and seats 100 people.” There will also be an outdoor bar. “We’re going to do daiquiris and frozen drinks,” says Guimaraes. “I can’t think of the last time I had a daiquiri or a frozen drink on a patio in New York.” There are also plans to keep the bar open late, along with nights featuring a DJ and alfresco dining. “It’s nice to sit on 55th Street, watch the world walk by your front door and sit around with some drinks and some nice background music.”

122 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018

Bottomless brunch will also be a new addition to the BiCE experience, including a never-ending mimosa—“pay one cover for the mimosas and you can just sit there and order as many as you want.” But though the mood may turn convivial, it will still be refined and elegant—BiCE is a five-star restaurant, after all! But it’s all par for the course for Guimaraes. Not only has he owned a dozen restaurants, and helped build some 25 in total, but he also is the co-owner Tipsy Girl rosé with Sonja Morgan (you may even recognize him from his appearances on the show!) Right now, the brand is located in five states—Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Florida and Texas—and has plans to expand even further. The brand also has restaurants in Hartford and is in talks to open locations in Las Vegas and Miami. So New York: Get ready for BiCE!

KEEP IT SCLIGHT Architect Bill Sclight Designs Hamptons Houses Like No Other

A

rchitect Bill Sclight is one of the Hamptons’ premier architects. Through his firm, W.A. Sclight Architect, P.C., Bill has designed homes for many discerning individuals. Design and architecture runs in the family. Bill’s father was also a well-known architect from Philadelphia whose work was widely recognized. So it’s no wonder that Bill decided to follow in the family tradition. One of Bill’s earliest clients was the well-known fashion editor for the New York Times Magazine, Carrie Donovan, also known as the “Old Navy Lady” for the personality she created for the clothing firm’s long-running advertising campaign. Bill’s family background and his vast knowledge of history, gained from his first career as an editor for the New York Times, created a passion for design and architecture. Bill’s breadth of work always has a feeling for space and an eye for aesthetic value. On his many travels, Bill is always exploring the built environment, whether sketching in the South of France or working on watercolors while on his trips to Italy or Belgrade. He often speaks of being inspired by old world influences or exciting new examples of contemporary architecture. Sometimes it’s how the light hits a surface or exposes a room that makes a difference in a home. Bill is known for his detail. His keen awareness for scale and proportions is shown in his many drawings and plans for the homes he has designed. His clients consistently say that his drawings look like pieces of art.

Among the key elements he always considers when approaching a design project is the importance of focusing on the lifestyle of his clients. He says he wants to produce an

environment for them that responds to their individual aesthetics and aspirations, creating an understated visual harmony.

LUXURY, THY NAME IS

PRINCIPAL!

The Principal London Hotel Delights and Excites

F

or the intrepid traveler in London’s Russell Square, there’s really only one place to stay: the marvelous, masterfully designed Principal London. As the Telegraph has it, “one thing has been consistent throughout: since the end of the 19th century, the look of the area has been defined by what is now the Principal London.” The opulent, refurbished 120-year-old hotel contains within it 334 rooms, which start at $330 per night. It’s the 12th hotel in the Principal Hotels family, and the new flagship for the entire company. What delights await those who stay at the Principal? Well, before they enter their rooms, there’s the stunning marble lobby, with its original pillars and zodiac floor mosaic. There’s also the restored Palm Court, a tea spot that’s now one of London’s most talked about restaurants, and Fitz’s cocktail bar, one of the chicest places to grab a drink anywhere. And then there’s Neptune, an all-day restaurant that exists in the space somewhere between an oyster bar and a caviar service. Waiter, we’ll take two each! But the real majesty comes in the rooms themselves. Designed by Tara Bernerd & Partners, they are conceived of as being part of the original 19th-century building, and include custom-made furniture and marble bathrooms. They also include exciting amenities like Ruark music systems and clothbound Penguin classics. Whether or not you’re staying for a night or a fortnight, it’s difficult to think of a better hotel. theprincipalhotel.com/london

NATURALLY 25 Frederico Azevedo and Unlimited Earth Care Celebrate a Quarter Century

F

or over 25 years, Frederico Azevedo, the master designer behind Unlimited Earth Care, has been plying his craft. Robb Report magazine has called him “the most influential landscape designer in the Hamptons,” and it’s easy to see why. Born in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in 1962, Azevedo has spent his life studying landscape design around the world. But after travels in Brazil, England and the United States, this talented landscaper decided to settle in the Hamptons. With its unique mix of farms, woods, dunes and about a half dozen other types of land, the Hamptons is universally acknowledged as one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

Azevedo is acutely aware of that, and makes sure to incorporate his surroundings into every design. Azevedo’s approach is a holistic one. He eschews fads, and thinks about everything that goes into a site: not just where it is, but what’s nearby. Not just its past, but its future. As he told AVENUE in 2015, “The trick is not to know what looks good now, but what will look good five years from now. These environments are always evolving.” Azevedo is a true renaissance designer, as comfortable designing around an ultramodern Norman Foster house as a wooden shingled mansion. For his landscaping skills, he’s been rewarded with the respect of his clients and his

128 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018

peers alike. He is a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, the American Horticultural Society and the Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons. And he gives back to his community, too. On June 16th, Azevedo hosted a 25th anniversary celebration at the Unlimited Earth Care store in Bridgehampton. Locals shopped, talked and, yes, drank cocktails to celebrate the man and his success. Here’s to you, Frederico—and to 25 more!

UXURY’S A-LIST THE BOLD NAMES UNLOCKING SOME THE BEST ADDRESSES


LUXURY’S A-LIST

THE CORCORAN GROUP

GARY DEPERSIA Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker What does luxury mean to you? Although the word “luxury” will mean different things to different buyers and renters in the Hamptons, some common themes emerge. Luxury is often informed by fine architecture that would be home to luxurious finishes and furnishings and upscale details incorporating the latest technology and amenities, while verdant landscaping would frame attractive pools, patios and outdoor living rooms. And luxury is not just the domain of high-priced homes as even lower-priced modest properties can include elements of luxury throughout. How much experience do you bring to the table in dealing in the high-end market? From the first house I ever sold in 1996, which would be the equivalent of a $10M property today, I have been dealing on the high end from Southampton to Montauk and from Sagaponack to Shelter Island. I have been both the listing broker or the selling broker (and sometimes both) on some of the most significant sales on the East End over the last two decades. Some of my sales have set benchmarks that still stand today in their respective categories, including a house in Bridgehampton North for $20M in 2005 and a waterfront property in North Haven for $36M in 2011. However, with several good assistants, I have been able to sell, rent and represent properties in most price categories, further enabling me to build a well-rounded business. How long did it take you to cultivate that clientele? Was there a pivotal moment for you? From a listing standpoint I was getting high-end homes by 2000. As sellers noticed that my advertising early on was both prolific and significantly different from a lot of the marketing being done in those day, my book of high-end properties began to build. As my media exposure of high-end properties grew buyers would see the types of homes I was promoting and contact me to help them find their own Hampton situation. I would be remiss if I didn’t give credit to some of the partners at Allan Schneider, who early on referred me to buyers, sellers and renters whom they thought I was suited to handle,

particularly Peter Hallock, who was very instrumental in launching my business. In fact one of his referrals would buy three properties from me, selling two along the way, adding up to nearly $70M worth of business in a dozen years. What are some of the great homes being resold by high-net-worth individuals that you represent today? I have two spectacular but very different nearby ocean front properties in Montauk both priced in the low $20s. One is a home thoroughly rebuilt and renovated by renowned architect/designer Thierry Despont, with stunning interiors sitting closer to the ocean than a newly built home could today, while the other is a unique 4-acre modern compound of house and guest house each on its own contiguous two acre parcels. In Sagaponack I have a sprawling home on 3.5 acres bordering a reserve with pool and tennis and just reduced to $11.995M, and an exquisite home on 2 acres in Water Mill walking distance to Mecox Bay and the ocean with gorgeous interiors, two-lane bowling alley and gym, as well as pool, tennis court and rooftop deck just repositioned at $10.495M.

You are well known for representing some of the most spectacular high-end, new construction in the Hamptons. Can you tell us about some of those? Just north of the highway in Water Mill, East End Building Company has just completed construction and furnished a 10,000-sqare foot estate on three levels of living space offering luxurious details, copious amenities and forever southwestern views over vast stretches of farmland, a fantastic buy at $7.99M. South of the highway, I represent two of James Michael Howard’s fully furnished properties in Sagaponack and Bridgehampton, priced at $19.75M and $11.95M respectively, where you can just bring your clothes and a toothbrush to start enjoying either immediately. And then at the gateway to the Southampton estate section I represent an extraordinary residence built by Demarco Development that incorporates designs, finishes and amenities that are normally found in houses well above the current price of $4.795M.

NEST SEEKERS INTERNATIONAL

ROBERT CANBERG Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

What does luxury mean to you? The word “luxury” to me has huge meaning. Using this term has strong impact, and it is a word I use only when truly applicable. For me, using it means this property checks all boxes, meaning the property is a step above, defining a comfortable and clear upscale lifestyle with all the true luxurious amenities one would expect to have here in the Hamptons. How much experience do you bring to the table in dealing in the high-end market? Looking back, I now realize how very fortunate I was to be able to start out in the high-end market. I started out here in the high-end market because it is where I live and where I was raised so for me it is something I was well connected with originally. For me that was an extreme advantage, to be so familiar with this market here from such an early age and built a vast network of high-end buyers and sellers. What are the qualities you possess that make you particularly well-suited to work with high-net-worth individuals? Well, besides my having an extreme knowledge of the Hamptons market and product both east and west of the canal, it’s really about being able to quickly assess, evaluate and understand the clients needs effectively and in a timely manner. What are some of the exciting luxury trends you’re seeing? Too many to list but right now the shift is from the larger size 10,000-square-foot estates to 5,000-square-foot estates. Being bigger is not always better, and a smaller, more manageable lifestyle is seeing a really big push.

To what lengths will you go for your clients? EVERYTHING! For me it’s always been about them! Whatever it takes, our clients always come first, so that my relationship with them, with all my clients, is everything. This is truly sacred to me. When you operate that way, truly putting your clients first, everything else falls into place!

How has technology improved the service you can provide your clients? It is everything! The technology is always changing, so it’s extremely important for us to be fully aware and stay on top. The tools I have here at Nest Seekers are unmatched, so I am really able to position my clients at all times, which enables me to put them in the absolute best positions to strike and make a deal!

What do you enjoy the most about dealing with a high-end clientele? Honestly, I love all my clients, but with the high-end clients I certainly love and appreciate their ability to be out here at a moment’s notice, no matter where they are in the world. Timing is everything, and that is huge when it comes to real estate.

What can one expect when choosing to work with you? I pride myself on providing a level of service, whether you are buying or selling here in the Hamptons, that’s truly second to none! For myself (and I can speak on behalf of my team here at the RC Real Estate group), it’s always about our clients. Their needs and their goals and truly putting them first! This is done with an extreme level of dedication and loyalty to the client while always being accountable. It’s always being hands-on, while providing them with all that is necessary to make the best decisions. We do all this, as well as make it a truly enjoyable experience, which is as it should be!

What are the things you’ve done to generate more business? There are too many to list. However, I can tell you the main thing is staying true to my core beliefs, always focusing on the solutions, staying the course, being persistent and using my innovative marketing strategies.

102 Dune Road, Westhampton Beach, NY

What separates you from your competition? My relentless work ethic coupled with an extreme passion for success. Also, my ability to take a hit and get up quickly has served me extremely well.

MARCIA ALTMAN

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker

LUXURY’S A-LIST

BROWN HARRIS STEVENS

What does luxury mean to you? Whether a grand waterfront manse or a cozy pied-à-terre, luxury is the ability to buy a brand-new home in your favorite Hamptons neighborhood. How much experience do you bring to the table in dealing in the high-end market? I have been honored as top-selling broker for the last 10 years. After almost 30 years of successfully buying and selling luxury homes in the Hamptons, I can use my experience and knowledge as a broker and participant to deal with high-net-worth individuals. My marketing has drawn praise for creative endeavors. I have extensive construction experience, thanks to collaborating with my husband, Barry Altman, a well-respected developer and builder. I’ve represented hundreds of transactions, and have marketed and negotiated record-breaking deals, including the recent 4-acre waterfront Lazarus sale in Quogue and the 10-acre Conway sale in Westhampton Beach. What qualities make you well-suited to work with high-net-worth individuals? My life experience makes me very similar to my clients. My travel, dining and shopping habits mirror theirs. I can turn on a dime when customers change their requirements (their minds). Feeling comfortable with your broker is the key to a successful relationship. To what lengths will you go for your clients? So many circumstances require behavior over and above the norm. I have driven contracts to clients in the city; brought in bucket trucks to hoist clients up in the air to show them the view from a vacant parcel; climbed in windows when keys were problematic; and trudged through the ice and snow to access otherwise inaccessible front doors to make sure my clients’ homes were shown. I’ve catered theme parties to introduce listings to the real estate community, and danced the night away at their children’s weddings!

BROWN HARRIS STEVENS Westhampton, LLC 70 Main Street Westhampton Beach, NY 11978 O: 631.288.5004 C: 631.255.5100 W: brownharrisstevens.com E: maltman@bhshamptons.com

What do you enjoy the most about dealing with a high-end clientele? I find high-end customers easier in many respects. They know what they want—this is not their first rodeo. They are familiar with the process and try to take the emotion out of the sale and concentrate on the real estate “business.” How has technology improved the service you can provide your clients? Real estate technology has made huge strides. The ability to tap my marketing department for special ads, enhanced videos, Photoshopping summer or evening shots when the environment doesn’t cooperate and the introduction of virtual reality have all contributed to the way real estate professionals do business today. How do materials used in the product you provide today compare with those from the past? In home construction, the materials used can be time stamped. Tumbled marble from the ’90 s has given way to easy-care synthetic materials and natural stone. Site-built homes are being challenged by modular construction. Appliances, door locks and shades can be tied into the home technology systems, making day-to-day living easier all around. In every single part of home construction the materials have evolved.

What can one expect when choosing to work with you/your brand? Brown Harris Stevens Real Estate is one of the most recognized and respected firms. Our customers often shop in our three market areas—NYC, the Hamptons and South Florida—and we are able to help customers and clients in all three locations. We have great support by our managers and marketers. You can expect an elegant marketing program, quick responses to questions and a complete knowledge of the local industry, including accurate comps. This all gives me and Brown Harris Stevens a leg up on the competition and a speedier path to your successful home purchase.

SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY

DAWN AND FRANK BODENCHAK Licensed Real Estate Salespersons

And then there is the connection to Sotheby’s, known for its exclusive high-end clientele? Most definitely. We are associated with two of the highest producing real estate offices not just in the Hamptons, but in the country: Sotheby’s International Realty in Bridgehampton and Southampton. The information flow in our morning meetings—with an army of high-end Hamptons agents—is incredibly helpful in our ability to add unique value to our clients. Plus the association with Sotheby’s auction house has been helpful in copromoting very high-end listings. And having 900 offices worldwide, all targeting high-end buyers, is something no other brokerage house can offer its listers. You have also become intimately associated with selling Hamptons Designer Showhouses? Yes, we’ve been involved in five so far. We built and sold three ourselves, and we introduced the showhouse to two other developers whose homes we listed. Next month we will be listing the 2018 Hampton Designer Showhouse, a 7,500-square-foot home on two acres with tennis for $4,795,000. How has that helped your practice? We’ve worked intimately with more than 100 different interior designers, refining our knowledge of high-end design. The exposure to so many different designers has uniquely enhanced our own design practice and our ability to service clients with ideas beyond what a typical agent would be able to do.

What unique experience do you bring to the table in dealing in the high-end market? We are unlike any other brokerage team in that we also own a design and development company, focused on cutting-edge, high-design homes. I designed and built my first waterfront glass home 22 years ago and am currently designing and building three 12,000–14,000-square-foot custom homes. My wife, Dawn, and I act as a team and have a passion for design and ideas that uniquely benefits all our high-end clients. How does that benefit your clients? Most of our buyers hire us for our knowledge of land, construction and design. It helps them evaluate land and house options and make more informed, calculated choices. For developers, our knowledge of high-end customers and “what is selling” helps them optimize their product during design. For end users, we often can tailor a house to their needs in cost-effective ways, making a house “work” for them where it may not otherwise have.

Any other experience that makes you particularly suited to work with high-net-worth individuals? Both Dawn and I worked in sales-related positions with high-net-worth clients for 15 years before moving to the Hamptons full-time. As a managing director at Morgan Stanley, I was accustomed to dealing directly with more than 100 chairmen, CEOs and CFOs in the media and entertainment industry, and thousands of institutional investment officers around the world. The experience and rolodex were priceless, and they are just starting to impact us now as we grow our Hamptons practice. 14,000 square foot construction on six cleared acres with distant ocean views

Perhaps just as important, we know of land and housing inventory no one else knows of yet. Over the past several years, nine of our land sales have been deals that were not advertised on Realnet. Two of our latest house sales were designs of 12,000–14,000square-foot constructions that never hit the market. And we are currently advising on a number of projects that are not currently being advertised, but will become available over the next six months.

THE CORCORAN GROUP

What does luxury mean to you? Luxury is having the time and accommodations to be with the ones you love. This is what most of my clients are looking for in the Hamptons. How long did it take you to cultivate that clientele? Was there a pivotal moment for you? I began in the Hamptons real estate market 18 years ago and spent the first two years hosting open houses for other brokers and taking every rental customer who came through the door. In the third year, the rental clients I had previously helped started becoming buyers, and that’s really when my business took off. What are the qualities you possess which make you particularly well-suited to work with high-net-worth individuals? Having had an entrepreneurial background and a Wall Street career, as well being a small business owner, help me relate to my clients’ needs and expectations. Traveling extensively gave me a global perspective on luxury real estate, allowing me a personal perspective of clients’ experiences and tastes. To what lengths will you go for your clients? I have traveled to Marrakech for a client’s spectacular wedding. I’ve worked with other clients for eight years to find exactly the right property on the ocean. I’ve met the children of clients at 1:00 a.m. when they forgot their keys, and have flown leases/contracts/checks back and forth from the East End to other states. What do you enjoy the most about dealing with a high-end clientele? An exciting part of my job is participating in the choices and decisions clients are making, revolving around bringing joy and happiness into their lives.

What are the things you’ve done to generate more business? I am always looking to the future and new trends in marketing, in how it relates to my clientele’s needs and interests. What separates you from your competition? I listen carefully and adapt my clients’ wishes into reality for them. My strong historical knowledge of properties in the Hamptons and financial acumen helps in analyzing values and potentials for each individual client in making the best transaction. How has technology improved the service you can provide your clients? At the core of our business is being able to quickly interpret and relay new, exciting industry information to our clients, so they can make the most informed decisions.

’TOGA! ’TOGA! ’TOGA! SENIOR EDITOR BEN DIAMOND DISCOVERS THAT SARATOGA SPRINGS IS MORE THAN A ONE–HORSE TRACK TOWN

ARCHITECTURAL GRANDEUR

SARATOGA SPRINGS has been one of upstate New York’s premier vacation spots for more than a century. To those not in the know, its claim to fame is the mile-long track that has hosted horse races every summer since 1864. But that’s just a small part of what the town has to offer. There’s also fine dining, amazing architecture, mineral springs and more. Giddyup!

Owing to its time as a Gilded Age playground, Saratoga Springs has some of the most beautiful estates in the entire Northeast, rivaling even those found in enclaves like Newport. Make sure to go on a historic home tour when you get here.

I stayed at the Adelphi Hotel, right in the heart of Saratoga Springs. Opened in 1877, and recently reopened after an extensive renovation, it's a meeting place for locals, boasting two restaurants and one of the best bars in town.

Did you know: Legend has it that both the potato chip and the club sandwich were invented in Saratoga Springs! CASUAL EATS

HAUTE CUISINE Foodwise, 15 Church is not just one of Saratoga’s best restaurants, but one of the region’s as well. In a restored historic building, chef Michael Mastrantuono whips up new American dishes with a twist. This rabbit pasta was one of the best dinners I’ve ever had—and I’ve been to Italy!

Of course, not everything is quite so upscale. There are plenty of equally quaint local eateries, like Hattie’s, a Louisiana-style restaurant that’s been open since 1938. Hey, are we on the Hudson or the Mississippi?!

HIT THE SKIDS Saratoga Springs is also home to Skidmore College, one of the great Northeastern liberal arts schools. The college’s Tang Museum always has something interesting on display, like this exhibition of paintings by the artist Dona Nelson.

A DAY AT THE RACES

Of course, that track is still one of the town’s biggest draws. Between July 20 and Labor Day, six days a week, the racecourse features some of the country’s best horse racing. You might not win big, but sometimes it’s fun just to watch.

NOTHING LIKE IT HÔTEL DE CRILLON IS A HAVEN OF PEACE IN THE CITY OF LIGHTS by Anthony Lassman

T

he renovation and re-creation of the Hôtel de Crillon, one of the oldest and most iconic of the Parisian grandes dames, is complete. It took a closure of nearly four years and a significant budget, but the new Crillon simply oozes style and glamour. We stayed last week, in beautiful early summer sunshine, critiquing and comparing it with our other favorite top Paris hotels. Aside from the excavations needed to create the new stateof-the-art glass-roofed indoor pool and spa, two new outdoor spaces were introduced. These provide intimate alfresco dining and lounging areas perfect for lunch or an early evening aperitif on warm days. Many of the new, beautifully appointed guest suites overlooking these interior patios are havens of peace in the heart of the city. Perfectly soundproofed signature suites overlook the Place de la Concorde. All accommodations feature every conceivable mod con, with particularly high attention to detail. For example, differently shaped solid-wood clothes hangers, including a ringed one for scarves; leather-covered customized Nespresso machines; a minibar with bottles of premixed cocktails; beautiful books everywhere; and models of former President Pompidou’s Citroën, a signature theme throughout the hotel, with a vintage 1973 Citroën DS used as one of the courtesy cars. And, in the guest bathrooms, our favorite

unguents by Buly, the classic French brand whose beautiful flagship store can be found at rue Bonaparte on the Left Bank. The original much-loved Les Ambassadeurs gourmet restaurant, to the right of the hotel’s front entrance, is now given over

“It took a closure of nearly four years and a significant budget, but the new Crillon simply oozes style and glamour.” to a cool destination bar with live music. It is evident how the trend to inject a lighter, younger ambience into classic hotels has been carefully considered here. The froideur and arrogance of Parisian grande-dame hotel culture appears finally to be waning, even if it has not yet fully disappeared. Brasserie d’Aumont, where breakfast is served, is an all-day contemporary destination brasserie with a crustacea and oyster bar. Sit at the bar or on a banquette or on one of the patios leading directly off, perfect for a light summertime lunch. Our favorite signature suite,

146 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018

created by über-designer Karl Lagerfeld, features what is arguably the finest master bathroom in all Paris. If you take the full suite, with capacious living and dining rooms, high ceilings, jaw-dropping views, two bedrooms and two magnificent opulent bathrooms, it will set you back €35,000 a night. There is nothing quite like it. For animal lovers, an ancillary bedroom suite has been specially designed by Monsieur Lagerfeld with Choupette, his cherished cat, in mind. It features a carpet, the design of which has been conceived around scratch marks, to make a cat feel at home. A

large and beautiful photographic portrait of Choupette adorns one of the bedroom walls. The black-and-white marbled and mirrored bathroom features twin vanities beneath tall windows. (We thought cats generally hated water!) However, for anyone wanting to house their pet in great style while deferring to Lagerfeld’s humor as he pays homage to his beloved pet, the Hôtel de Crillon can oblige. The Choupette suite can be rented independently. For those whose budget does not extend to the entire apartment, we’d be perfectly happy to recommend it as a respectable alternative.


OCEAN TO LAKE PALM BEACH ESTATE

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT ON THE MARKET Offering the highest quality workmanship with superb details from Italian designs and artisans providing 14’ ceilings on the main floor and 10’ceilings on the second floor. Breathtaking panoramic and simultaneous views of the ocean to lake is unique to this grand estate. North south tennis court adjacent to lake is exclusive to this distinctive property in Palm Beach. Available unfurnished or furnished.

IS AGGRO ON THE MENU? HOT RESTAURANTS LEAVE OUR COLUMNIST COLD

I

know this may defy expectations, but trendy A-list restaurants are the last places I want to dine. Maybe it’s my age, maybe it’s the times, but right now I hunger for neighborhood joints. I crave red-checkered tablecloths, and sharing fried zucchini over menus filled with Italian home-cooking staples like lasagna, veal piccata and baked clams. And I don’t need global or plutocratic riffs on those dishes. Give me the real deal, please. As a cohost of Dining Around, a popular TV show in the ’90s on the Food Network, and a former board member of the James Beard Foundation, I can reasonably say I’ve been around the culinary block. And I have broad, accepting standards. Or used to. I threw in the towel with trendy when my well-meaning daughter took me to Alta, a living nightmare thinly disguised as a restaurant. The minute I walked in I knew I was screwed. The noise level was literally deafening, and only got worse as I struggled up the narrow staircase to a dark cavern of a room. Sitting down, I screamed hello to my daughter, while trying to attract a waiter’s attention. Good luck with that! He was busy attending to the gaggle of squealing millennial girls at the table next door. (What’s with that anyway? Are tables of squealing millennial girls the new Berkshire pork chops? Couldn’t they get dates? Doesn’t anyone like to dine à deux with a dear friend or, dare I say it, someone special?) Forty-five minutes later, the harassed and testy waiter delivered an undercooked duck and tepid pasta. Definitely not worth the wait. And as conversation remained impossible, we sat, ate without enthusiasm, and watched the millennials get plastered as they squealed their way through dinner.

Given the general cacophony of the world we live in, I want to relax when I dine out with friends. We all have countless opportunities to get battered by street noise. Who needs to queue up at dining venues to do the same? Not me. And that’s just the aural assault part. Already you’ve waited to speak to a “reservationist,” and then some more for your reserved table, pressed against the door, getting body bumped by waiters racing by (if they were all cute, that would be better, but still...) and those special souls famous (or deluded) enough to believe they are exempt. Then, there’s the economic pain we all now have to bear, being mugged by obscene prices—especially wine by the glass served by pushy

152 | AVENUE MAGAZINE • AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2018

wannabes whose job description is “getting ready,” i.e., waiting…though Lord knows not on tables but, rather, to be something, anything else. Friends and acquaintances tell me I’m not alone in my renewed appreciation of the neighborhood local, the little brown wren that knows how to keep ’em coming back, long after the preening dining peacocks have lost their shine for gourmet grasshoppers. My A-list restaurants are Upper East Side staples like Antonucci and Parma. Mind you, they’re not dumps: they just don’t have the need to pimp their chicken parmigiana, proffer gold pens on a velvet cushion with the bill, or provide leopard-covered stools to place your Birkin on, as many (well, some of them are still friends of mine) famously did back in the ’80s. Those were the days when Wall Street flexed its flashy new fiscal muscles by spending obscene bonus dollars on bottles of “big reds” (often shared with buxom gingers) at fancy steak houses. Of course the real point was to show off freshly minted money and, even more, to be seen doing so. Few knew what the hell they were drinking, or even cared. Scoring tables at impossible-to-book restaurants like Montrachet or a private chef ’s table in the kitchen at Le Bernardin was the mark of an A-lister. Having Drew Nieporent’s cell on your speed dial was better for your status than being great in the sack. But now, somehow, the atmospheric equivalent of comfort food is what I need. On a recent visit to Parma, I asked my waiter how long he had been working there. “Thirtyeight years,” he replied. He isn’t hot, but he’s a pro! Let’s endeavor to make that the new hot in boites.
