DEAR READERS, WELCOME TO THE July Issue of AVENUE on the Beach. Time for the picnics, time for the swimsuits to come out and time to put the iPads away (Have you ever tried to read an iPad on the beach? It’s nearly impossible and looks completely ridiculous when a reader hides under a towel to try to read text). This month, we’ve headed to Montauk, which is arguably the coolest place to be out East right now. No longer the bohemian outpost it once was, Montauk still entices a chilled-out crowd. Chris Lawrence, our
contributing editor, explores that golden period in the mid1970s when the Rolling Stones took a detour from their lives in Europe and spent five weeks rehearsing for their big American tour on Andy Warhol’s estate. The band visited the Memory Motel (the eponymous Stones song was written that summer), drank at the Shagwong Bar and generally got themselves into performance-ready shape. The photos and stories that Chris unearthed reveal a relaxed Mick Jagger (now 70 and a great-grandfather), who back then was making the transition from glorious youth to more mature singer. One of the more surprising aspects of the story is how the people
14 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2014
“[Lauren] was as relaxed and attractive a person you could ever hope to shoot and, judging from the resulting photos, in amazing shape.” of Montauk treated the biggest rock band around: In short, they left them completely alone, to get on with their business and generally live their lives. Inspired by the Memory Motel vibe, we shot our cover subject, Andrew Lauren, in the spirit of that era. Lauren was an incredibly good sport about everything we asked him to do. He was as relaxed and attractive a person you could ever hope to shoot; and, judging from the resulting photos, in amazing shape. His career as a film producer is going from strength to strength, which, combined with his lineage, makes for a killer combination. He is, I can happily report, also single. We also have a beautiful fashion shoot, a wonderful Hamptons moment by Michael Shnayerson and more. So grab your towel, your shades and a good hat, and dig in! Daisy Prince

JULY C O N T RIBU TORS
BEHIND THE SCENES >> Born in Ponce, Puerto Rico,
Arnaldo Anaya-Lucca began his career in fashion in 1988 with Ralph Lauren, who remains Arnaldo’s most loyal client. He has since contributed to magazines such as GQ, Esquire, Interview, the New York Times Magazine and more. “Montauk was the ideal location to convey Andrew’s personal rugged style and lifestyle. Having his beloved dog, Cinch, as a part of the story made it even more personal!”
Born in South Africa, Neil F. Dawson moved to Surrey, England at the age of 15, and 16 years later found himself starting again in New York City. Having spent his wonder years skateboarding and riding motorcycles around the British Isles and Europe, he met there the people who introduced him to photography and fashion.
Originally from Virginia, Heather Waraksa now resides in Brooklyn, where she specializes in documenting people, places and events in New York City as well as abroad. “After a brutal winter (and lack of vitamin D), a sunny swimsuit shoot in the Hamptons was more than welcome. We had one of the first nice days of the spring, so it made for a really positive and fun team and set.”
“Beautiful day out in the Hamptons, Tripoli’s got it sorted. I wish I had more time to enjoy the place and most of all grab an afternoon surf with Trip. “
Emily Barnes’ work has been featured on the pages of Vogue, Vogue China and Vanity Fair; she has collaborated with some of the industry’s most respected photographers. She has quickly risen to become one of New York’s most sought-after stylists.
>> Michael Shnayerson is a long-time
contributing editor at Vanity Fair and the author or co-author of six books. Most recently, he collaborated with Harry Belafonte on Belafonte’s memoir, My Song. He is currently finishing a biography of Governor Andrew Cuomo for Grand Central Press. “I have to admit that what I love most about the Hamptons are its shoulder seasons: May and September. Everything in between is glamorous, maddening, fun and frustrating. But May and September are sublime.”
24 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2014
“The work of Slim Aarons and the icon C.Z. Guest was swimming around in my head while I put my shoot inspirations together for this shoot for AVENUE. What’s more inviting than those references when you think of Hamptons in the summertime?”
Christopher Dante Frongillo began his career as a fashion assistant at GQ working under creative director Jim Moore. It was in this period that he was given the opportunity to take on work for publications such as; Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar and CR Fashion Book. “Tripoli Patterson is as charismatic and compelling as the exhibitions he curates: right on point.”
Before they gather around the table, they’ll gather around the range. Every detail makes a statement. One oven for everyday cooking. One extra-large-capacity oven that ensures that if the guest list doubles, you’ll be prepared. Both feature smooth-rolling fully extendable racks, making it easier to reach your latest masterpiece. It’s time to dream bigger in the kitchen. Discover more at Monogram.com or visit the Monogram Design Center in NYC.

“When an architect recommends a landscaper, they either have a lot of trust or a lot of nerve.… When an architect sticks their neck out to recommend a landscaper, they're putting their reputation on the line. Should something go wrong during the job or down the line they end up with an unhappy client and quite likely, negative word of mouth which is not good for future business. No wonder architects are some of our biggest boosters. Almost 40 years ago we built an organization and a way of working that people have come to trust. It’s kind of old fashioned in a way, beginning with the fact that when you call a real person will always answer the phone during business hours seven days a week. From that point on you’ll learn that your job will be done on time and within budget guaranteed. In short, we’ll show up when we say we will and finish the work on time and within budget. After all, a promise is a promise.”

LADIES WHO LUNCH Hello summer with a glamorous hat luncheon and surprise wedding celebration.
50 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2014
pring tipped its hat to summer at the 33rd Annual Frederick Law Olmsted Awards Luncheon (a.k.a the “hat lunch”) at Central Park, the last huge event before the shores and mountains suck the social juice from Gotham. Twelve hundred guests, mostly women, spilled into the Conservatory Gardens, where handsome Abigail Kirsch waitstaff stood at the ready to help the Blahniked and Choo-ed wobble down the cobblestone steps, among popping cameras and air kisses that were even airier than usual, considering the enormous hats blocking their way. This is an over-the-top event, but mostly in the best way. This year, it raised over $3.5 million, which, because the committee underwrites the entire cost, goes entirely back to the Park. Women’s Committee President Anne Harrison skillfully managed the event, and former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a perennial favorite here(there was even a woman in a Bloomberg hat-WWD passed, but it was notable), was the honoree. This year, my table, whose decibel level was no higher than any other, was singled out for a scolding by a staffer, who hissed, “This is the Mayor speaking—keep it down.” I won’t reveal her name, but I know it. And, furthermore, I did hear the Mayor say: “I’ve always believed, like Olmsted, that the parks can be a powerful influence for democracy, Becca Thrash, Andrew Rhoda and Ben Bourgeois bringing people of all different backgrounds together.” It would be easier to tell you who wasn’t there, but among the notables, there was Sandra Lee blooming like a ripe, white peony; Gillian Miniter, with a flurry of butterflies on her Eric Javits hat; Robert Verdi, in your basic black-leather-studded number; Christine Schwarzman, posing with another lucky girl in the same black and white Chanel couture suit; Catherine Adler in the chicest dress of the day, by Alexander McQueen; Lise Evans and Fiona and Susan Rudin; Patty Harris, Amanda Burden, Patty Smyth, Amy Hoadley and Karen LeFrak; Allison Rockefeller, Norma Dana and more. My table, hosted by Felicia Taylor and Margo MacNabb Nederlander, held a silent tribute to our late, beloved Cynthia Lufkin, who had hosted this same table for so many years. We miss her. Summer is upon us, and I began mine out east. Happily, Memorial Day was mostly about family, close friends and wedClaudia Sorbac and Marcia Mishaan, Michael Cominotto dings! Ben Bourgeois,, the legendary event planner from L.A., and Richard Keith Langham and Debbie Loeffler his husband, Andrew (Diggy) Rhoda,, married in a small ceremony at their home in Mexico, and thought that was the extent of it. But a consortium of their pals thought not, and surprised them with a dinner dance in the Hamptons, populated by the very best of their crowd, hailing from everywhere from Alabama to Paris. Dennis Basso diverted them for a drink, but when they arrived, before they saw the throng in the “Pavilion,” Ben wondered aloud why the D.J. was playing The Wedding March. The surprise still worked, and worked late. A neighbor came over at 1 a.m. and asked if they could hold the noise down. The host then offered to shut the D.J. down. “No,” rasped the weary dad, “It’s the voices.” And that is the sign of a robust celebration. This particular one included: Claudia Sorbac, Bill Smith, Sarah Dodd, Becca Thrash, Debbie and John Loeffler, Michael Morelli, Karin Luter, Marcia and Richard Mishaan, Ivana Lowell, Michael Cominotto, Lisa Fine, Jamie Creel and Marco Saravani, Jamie Tisch, Nicole Miller and Bill Smith and Nicole Miller, Keith Langham, Scott Currie, Jaime Jimenez and Steve Tisch. Ivana Lowell Karen Luter It got quieter from there. ✦

Mary Ann Brownings’ Fitness Tips ■
Don’t skip breakfast just because you sleep in a bit later during the summer. Have something within half an hour of waking. You need to kick-start your metabolism in the morning. ■ Don’t overdo salads; they can make you bloated. Fill up on other vegetables with more fiber in them. ■ Be wary of too much alcohol. Heat will make you feel more intoxicated. Add a little less tequila and a little more soda to your Brownings Lean Cocktail. If you prefer wine, add soda to your white wine to make a refreshing spritzer. Southampton and New York City locations browningsfitness.com

AND THE MOUNTAINS ECHOED Khaled Hosseini
The #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns strikes again. This is a powerful story of the complex relationships within families and the people who may not be blood-related but become part of the family dynamic. It’s a departure from Hosseini’s previous two books in that the character web is far more complex: he spans multiple generations and tells quite a few stories. Still, the book is just as beautifully written and vividly descriptive as his others.
ONE PLUS ONE
ALL FALL DOWN
Though the emotional impact of Moyes’ earlier bestseller, Me Before You was intense, I was more than willing to brace myself for another contemporary love story from this talented storyteller. One Plus One bounces between cringe-worthy moments and a sweet, heart-warming love story. The heroine is a single mom, abandoned by her husband; trying to shield her stepson from bullies and trying to get her math-prodigy daughter to a competition she can’t afford. The unexpected love interest/savior comes in the form of her über-wealthy, selfish employer who uncharacteristically offers to drive the struggling family to the Math Olympiad, and the relationship unfolds from there.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from the reigning queen of Chick Lit, so it was to an eager audience that Jennifer Weiner, author of bestsellers Good in Bed and In Her Shoes, released a new novel. This is the story of Allison Weiss, a woman with a seemingly perfect life but, in actuality has an increasing dependence on prescription pills. Her addiction spirals out of control and Allison finds herself in rehab, where she believes she is above the women who surround her. She must first conquer her holier-than-thou complex and then learn to deal with the, well, sobering effects of her newfound humility and self-awareness.

MY SALINGER YEAR Joanna Rakoff
Author Joanna Rakoff writes a humorous and affecting memoir of her year as an assistant to Phyllis Westberg, the famed book agent for J.D. Salinger. Though her story is set in the late ’90s, the literary world of the time was still unadulterated wood paneled offices, Dictaphones, clunky typewriters and piles of handwritten fan mail set the scene. The then-23-year-old began working at Harold Ober Associates, having never read a Salinger book—not even Catcher in the Rye. She soon finds herself engulfed by the power of “Jerry”— constant stories about him, instructions for warding off media and fan requests for his personal information and the task of answering his fan mail with a ten-yearold form response. But the experience slowly becomes personal—she is captured by the stories and efforts offered in the mail and begins genuinely corresponding with Salinger’s fans; she is moved to read his work and is shown how good stories can be timeless, especially when Salinger himself decides it might be time to allow publication of a dormant work. ✦

Micha el Shn a yer s o n
His own Hamptons Michael Shnayerson explains how to find a simple summer
lamour is not the word that comes to mind—my mind—for July in the Hamptons. Glutted is more like it. But I have lived here, year-round, for more than 20 years, and summered here most of my life, so I know how the Hamptons looked before the money and mansions and glamour. I am a grump about all that’s come to pass. And yet I love the Hamptons. No, let me say that better. I love the summer that one can find here—still—if one knows where to look. My July in the Hamptons has nothing to do with fancy cars, or noisy restaurants, or billionaires’ parties. It’s about friends and rituals, sea and sky, gathering places and private retreats. Most of my July days start with a trip to the Golden Pear in Sag Harbor. Not so long ago, a humble coffee shop occupied this space, and farmers gathered to gossip. Then came the Golden Pear’s fancy pastries and $2 coffee, and the farmers left in a huff. Gradually, Raj won them back—he’s the manager here. Now the tables are filled again each morning. Along with Mr. Cilli of Sag Harbor’s Cilli Farm; I may see a fancy mother like Whitney Fairchild with kids in tow, or legendary book editor Jason Epstein and his wife, journalist Judith Miller, painter Donald Sultan, architect Chris Coy or art dealer Peter Marcelle. It’s the mix that makes the Pear the Pear. Your Hamptons may be the new and elegant Topping Rose House, Tom Colicchio’s latest shrine of haute cuisine, where hedge funders fight for tables. Mine is the Pear and its ilk: places that bring people together and make the villages what they are. In Sag Harbor, where I live, those include Conca d’Oro, the town’s always crowded and happy pizza joint; Provisions, for the tofu-and-greens crowd; and Dockside, the VFW base that doubles as the town’s cheeriest good-food-atgood-prices choice, where locals belly up to the bar. Yet another is the Sag Harbor movie theater, with its red fluorescent Deco lettering, in some imminent danger now; the couple who owns it wants to retire. Who could imagine Sag Harbor without the movie theatre? No one; something will be done.

Every village has treasures like that. One in Bridgehampton is Tutto Bene, whose owners, Barbara Remia and Joanne Kahn, choose every article of chic women’s clothing that graces their tiny store. Hillary Clinton comes by; super-agent Binky Urban is a regular, as is Democratic Party stalwart Ellen Chesler. They’re just a few of the loyal customers who come back summer after summer, as much to talk as to shop. In Water Mill it’s Sushi Zen, where locals mix with city
folk: late-show host Jimmy Fallon was here not long ago, not out of place with the carpenters and electricians. In East Hampton? Sam’s Pizza, of course, a mainstay of Newtown Lane since l947, where Jackson Pollock reportedly whiled away many a winter evening. Last year, July in the Hamptons was even more crowded than the year before—or so we locals said, counting the idling cars at stop signs on our sacrosanct back roads. But we said that the year before, too. All I know
is that the crowds now drive me that much sooner to my Hamptons getaways. One is Alewife Creek. Bring a kayak to Cedar Point County Park, in the Northwest Woods, paddle east of the Point itself, with its gray-stone lighthouse, built in l860 when that end of the peninsula was an island, and look for Alewife Creek. Then paddle the mile or two up its mossy banks to Alewife Pond. No Maseratis idling in the distance here, only an egret or two and, if you’re lucky, a hawk. Almost as private as a boat on the water are the places no one goes in August because everyone’s at the beach. Mashomack, on Shelter Island, is a 2100-acre preserve, with color-coded trail walks from three miles to 11 or 12, the woods have hardly changed since the island’s first white settlers arrived in the l600s. Barcelona Neck, off Route ll4 between Sag Harbor and East Hampton, has a trail down to Northwest Harbor, where tiny sailboats bob at their moorings and surfcasters fish for blues. East of East Hampton, in the flat sandy stretch of Napeague, are the visually splendid red sand Walking Dunes, and a network of trails that lace their way to Montauk. I love to cook, and July in the Hamptons to me means going, before the day is out, to
my favorite farmers’ markets—Pike’s on Sagg Main in Sagaponack; Halsey’s on Head of Pond Road in Water Mill—and the two new weekend standouts: the Hayground School
“I love the Hamptons. No, let me say that better. I love the summer that one can find here–still–if one knows where to look. “ in Bridgehampton on Friday afternoons, Sag Harbor on Saturday mornings. For fish I go to the Seafood Shoppe in Wainscott—or Citarella in a pinch—Iacono’s in East Hampton for fresh-plucked free-range chickens;
and Cavionola’s in Sag Harbor for the best cheese in the Hamptons or anywhere else. On a Thursday night in July, if I’ve tired of cooking, I may wander down to Sag Harbor’s little Marine Park, spread a blanket on the lawn and listen to a free concert. If I’m feeling more ambitious, I may head over to Shelter Island and a concert—free again—at Itzak Perlman’s summer music camp, where teenage students play like gods. These, again, are gathering places, but not hot restaurants crammed with people: summer celebrations in the warm July air, with a backbeat of fall-promising crickets. The Hamptons has glamor, so I’m told, and for all I know, those who seek it find it. To me, the beauty of the place is something else, unless by glamor you mean Sagg Beach on an early evening, the last hold-outs with their books in their beach chairs, a big black Lab running free, a barbecue party stoking their coals, sending swirls of cinders into the dusk, with the moon rising up from the sea. ✦

THE DEALS (AND BIG DEALER) OF THE YEAR
t was a big deal to have a local map at that time,” Timothy Davis says of his earliest days as a real estate broker on Long Island’s East End, when its back-road shortcuts were still a local secret. What is now arguably the most exposed summer community on the planet was terra incognita to the then-junior college student, even though he’d grown up in nearby Mastic Beach and his fiancée hailed from Hampton Bays. “I didn’t know the territory a bit,” Davis admits. He’s come a short distance, but a long way. A broker in Corcoran’s Southampton office, Davis has just had the best year any broker has ever had in the Hamptons. In his 33rd season in real estate, he not only made $430 million worth of deals but attached his name to four of the East End’s nine biggest transactions of 2013. Those were the sales of; Wooldon Manor, a 14.5-acre great estate on that town’s Gin Lane, for $75 million; 408 First Neck Lane on Lake Agawam, for $28 million; and 1260 and 1900 Meadow Lane, the former homes of Snapple’s late founder Arnold Greenberg, sold for $25 million, and the late financier Ted Forstmann, sold for $24 million. That set of deals was more than enough to win Davis the first-ever Big Deal Broker honor at the inaugural Privet Hedge Awards dinner held in May at Southampton’s Sebonack Golf Club. (The awards were created by Manhattan Media, which publishes AVENUE, AVENUE on the Beach and Dan’s Papers). Davis could conceivably qualify for the same prize next year. Wooldon Manor is already back on the market, with an asking price of $98 million. Not long ago, that price figure, if achieved, would have been a recordsetter. But just before the launch of the current summer season, the

Further Lane estate of the late investment advisor Christopher Browne was quietly sold to a controversial hedge-fund runner for a jawdropping $147 million, the most expensive sale of a private residence in American history. That particular purchase, by JANA Partners founder Barry Rosenstein, was significant for another reason: Like the third and fourth biggest sales of 2013, it was reportedly completed without the payment of a brokerage commission. And in journalistic calculations, three instances is a certified trend. When I asked Lester Weindling, the real estate investor who sold 29 Spaeth Lane in East Hampton for $32.5 million in August, who’d listed his house, he said, “No, no no.” There was no broker. “There was no listing at all,” he said. Then he admitted using something called “a courtesy broker” for what he described to me as “a deal done among equals.” He added that that’s “what a deal ought to be.” Though Rosenstein makes a good part of his living collecting big fees from investors in his hedge fund, he apparently agrees. No commission was paid on his record-setting purchase, either, says someone else who is in a position to know. But, as with Weindling’s sale, and despite published reports to the contrary, a broker was involved. Rosenstein surely owes that broker big-time, but this columnist— having researched the pugnacious hedgie while writing a book about his Manhattan residence, 15 Central Park West—feels obliged to add that the Hamptons brokerage community might be better off without the business of a man who named one of his funds Piranha and once bragged about making a corporate opponent retch in a negotiation. Hamptons real estate was a gentler endeavor than it is today when Tim Davis started his career, Davis worked with his mother-in-law in Shinnecock Hills for three years, then joined Southampton’s Agawam
How high is up in the Hamptons? Last year, one East End broker sold homes worth $430 million. This year, a single home sold for $147 million.

“When Tim Davis started out in Hamptons realty, there were few exclusives; listings were handwritten with stapled Polaroids; and a beach house cost $1 million. Those were the days.” 1900 Meadow Lane
Realty, becoming its top broker and office manager and expanding the realty’s reach to East Hampton. After Davis and his wife had a child, he accepted a longstanding offer from the Hamptons brokerage giant, Allan M. Schneider, to join his company. A year and a half later, Davis says, “Allan dies,” and nine months after that, Davis and five colleagues bought the company from Schneider’s estate. They then ran the business for 15 years, as it grew to 12 offices and 350 brokers. Meanwhile, one partner died, one retired and one was fired, culminating in the company’s sale to Corcoran in 2006. When he first started in real estate, Davis says, “It was a time of high inflation and high interest rates. People would rush to lock in [a mortgage] at 17 percent.” There were few exclusives; listings were “handwritten with stapled Polaroids”; and “a beach house cost $1 million.” He recalls selling two acres on Meadow Lane for $350,000. Those were the days. Things had begun changing by the late ’80s, [but] Hamptons home prices were rising; “We still had open space; land was slowly being developed,” Davis remembers. Then came the market crash of 1987, followed by a few difficult years. But by the early ’90s, the real estate market was on the upswing again. At age 32, Davis, the youngest partner 82 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2014
at Schneider, scored his first two big deals. He sold Westerly, a 25-room brick Georgian estate in Southampton, for a record $8 million—“a huge deal back then,” Davis says—to Ronald Perelman’s legal advisor Howard Gittis. (It was later bought by fashion maven Tory Burch for $38.5 million.) Davis also sold the same house on the ocean at 1260 Meadow Lane that he sold again this year; back then, it cost $5 million. The realtor ultimately managed Corcoran’s Southampton office for four years, but stepped aside after the 2010 season to return to full-time brokerage work. In 2012, he was Corcoran’s second-best East End earner, and at year’s end he wrote down a New Year’s resolution that stated, “I want to be #1.” His wish came true last year. Including his record-setters, he was involved in six oceanfront home sales; six deals where the purchase price exceeded $20 million; and “various others for $10 or $15 million. And it all added up,” he says, hastening to add that, “I don’t want to be obnoxious. A lot of people work very hard, but it happened to be a year [for me] when it all came together.” Indeed, the last year came together well for many. Consider this list of the biggest pre-Rosenstein sales in the Hamptons. Then, wish that at least one of those checks had been made payable to you:

$75 million. Vince Camuto, the shoe designer and founder of Nine West, had put the house on the market thinking he’d later sell four adjacent undeveloped parcels. But Scott Bommer, founder of SAB Capital, a hedge fund, wanted it all and agreed to buy it—and most of the furniture in the house, too—after a weekend-long negotiation. “But he’d always wanted East Hampton ocean-front,” says someone close to Bommer. So he almost immediately bought three properties on prestigious Lily Pond Lane there for a reported $94 million and put the enlarged Southampton estate back on the market, asking $98 million. Even in the Hamptons, one realtor allows, that was a “rather shocking” turnaround. But it was just another day in the life of a big-deal broker.

ROLLIN’ ON IN
olls-Royce has to be one of the most evocative names in the world. The name is synonymous with excellence, as in “The Rolls-Royce of . . . (insert word to compare to the finest of anything) and many will know that it is not just a manufacturer of superlative motor cars, aspired to by many and driven by few. Indeed the Spitfire and P-51 Mustang of World War II were powered by the fearsome R-R Merlin engine and the Concorde of the late lamented supersonic passenger era by the R-R Olympus. For me the link is more personal as probably the most famous RollsRoyce in the world, the 1937 Phantom III Sedanca de Ville used by Goldfinger in the James Bond movie, was in fact commissioned by my great uncle and remained his daily transport for 30 years. Thus it was with very high expectations and not a little excitement that I accepted an invitation to head down to a small corner of Lord March’s historic Goodwood estate in the South of England to receive a full tour of Rolls-Royce’s state-of-the-art factory and to obtain the keys to the most powerful car in the company’s 110 year history, the new 2-door $500,000 Wraith. After a very comprehensive private tour conducted by David Deane— himself a keen visitor to the Hamptons when not at Goodwood—which showcased an utterly modern working environment resounding only to the gentle hubbub of very talented craftsmen going diligently about their work, aided by robots only when absolutely necessary, the moment of

truth arrived. I saw through the window a black fastback coupe gliding majestically to the front doors of the facility. Could the Wraith possibly be even better looking than in the photographs? The answer to this is absolutely in the affirmative. Every inch of it is purposeful and even somewhat menacing as would befit a four seat gentleman’s Grand Tourer with a 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 producing 624bhp lurking under the hood. The recessed grill, slightly angled Spirit of Ecstasy (which has for the past 102 years adorned the front of every Rolls-Royce) and very steeply raked glasshouse are utterly beguiling. I cannot wait to be on my way. I climb aboard through the front opening coach door and am immediately inside a very special place indeed. The seats are well padded, supremely comfortable and covered in a quality of leather that even designers of haute couture clothing would struggle to match, whilst the woodwork and instruments will make the owners of the most super of the world’s Super yachts feel instantly at home. The roof lining is dotted with 1,340 tiny LED’s handwoven in to the leather. There are 360 degree cameras showing their images through the sat-nav and an infrared heads-up display is discreetly projected on to the screen in front of me. It is a juxtaposition of Georgian drawing room and techie heaven. I push the starter button and the V12 roars purposefully but not obnoxiously in to life before settling into an almost silent idle. I head away from HQ all the time acclimatizing myself to the car and decide

to pick a route that would best mimic a journey back from the Hamptons to NYC. On the backroads the Wraith glides effortlessly as a Roller should. The brilliant Satellite Aided Transmission (SAT) reads the road ahead and decides which is the best of the eight gears to be in and allows this vast car to feel poised and utterly controllable. As confidence builds I realize that I can hustle the 18ft long, 2.4 ton behemoth very delicately through the corners and I am beginning to relish the wonderful feeling that is pointing the Spirit of Ecstasy with gusto down the road. Happily the suspension completely absorbs any ripples and bumps in the road surface whilst not preventing the steering from providing a useful amount of feedback (particularly useful for Long Island as in Britain) and before long I am on sweeping main roads. A car in front travelling too slowly enables me to see what this beast can really do. I indicate and plant my right foot. There is an almost imperceptible pause as Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, clears his throat. The rear of the car hunkers down. Thor starts to shout and then, as the revs rise, to bellow and the Spirit of Ecstasy and I are flung towards the horizon at an almost Cosmic rate. It is utterly addictive—the closest I think I will ever come to being on a twin-turbocharged magic carpet. I reach London all too soon and head in to Mayfair. As I park outside my office I cannot help but notice that many of the people who look at the car are smiling just as much as I am. It is truly a magnificent machine. Rolls-Royce have said that it is a car that “we believe our great founding forefather and adventurer The Honorable Charles Rolls would have driven today were he alive.” I would have liked to have met him. ✦

ndrew Lauren gives a friendly, quizzical wave to see if you’re the one he is meeting. He has arrived first, having selected a bar near Madison Square Park where quiet conversation is possible; and there he sits, already in relaxation mode, a glass of Sauvignon Blanc in his hand. The name “Andrew” means handsome, and the eldest child of Ralph and Ricky Lauren fills that bill, well, handsomely, with his easy air, chiseled chin and perfectly symmetrical, warm smile. It is hard not to instantly like him. Disarmingly modest, he announces that he’s really not that much of a fan of talking about himself. He is more interested in you. The man is seductive. But he will talk about himself, and fairly unguardedly, because he is unfailingly polite and knows that that’s what you are there for. Surprise number one is that at one time he seriously contemplated a career as a politician. He was raised on a diet of films about John F. Kennedy, (one of his father’s idols) and other great cinematic fare that influenced his eventual career path. “I mean, who doesn’t want to be Cary Grant or Steve McQueen?” he asks, rhetorically. And at 44, with wavy salt-and-pepper gray hair, he definitely has the looks of a leading man. He’d also be a great politician, given his ability to instantly connect and make those he is talking to feel they are more intriguing to him at that moment than just about anything. Like his two siblings, David and Dylan, Andrew attended the Dalton School from kindergarten through graduation. He was an all-around kid, he says: good at sports, talented in the arts, a good student and well liked. Then it was off to Skidmore in Saratoga Springs, where he says he was very happy and quickly rose to a leadership position, as president of his class. Wanting to take his interest in political science to a higher level, he transferred to Brown University. But, instead, he found he was more at home with the artistic offerings at yet another nearby institution. “The best thing about Brown was its proximity to RISD,” he says, referring to the Rhode Island School of Design. He confesses that he was homesick there a lot, frequently returning to New York City. After graduating from Brown, he says, family friends suggested that given his wide-ranging talents and multi-faceted creative interests, he might want to explore film. With his camera-ready looks, why not try acting?

“It was tough to break in. I’d go to an audition and people would say, ‘I know who your family is—do you think I could get a nice sweater?’” —Andrew Lauren
e flung himself into that pursuit, and it was tough going. All the family connections in the world and the Lauren last name takes you only so far in cutthroat, meritocratic Hollywood. “It was hard to get a break,” he says. “I’d go to an audition and people would say, ‘I know who your family is—do you think I could get a nice sweater?’” He loved the work, but chafed at the lack of control. “I decided the only way to make it in this business is to be more proactive,” he says. And so, Andrew Lauren Productions was born, and he quickly discovered that the part of creative producer suited him to a T. “It’s the most important role,” he says, “the one who puts it all together. In my opinion, the producer is the star of the film. It’s all about putting the right package together.” His family was entirely supportive, just as they had been with every other career move he has made, he says. The Laurens have always been film buffs—in fact Andrew’s film education was mostly at the hands of Ralph and Ricky. “My parents always showed us great movies,” he says. He remembers seeing just about every Hitchcock masterpiece, Redford and Newman in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and one of his all-time favorites, Plein Soleil, which translates as Purple Noon and is based on the novel, The Talented Mr. Ripley. “We even had a screening room in Montauk, where I was the family projectionist,” he remembers. Just because he was in the movie business did not mean he would leave his beloved New York, though. On the contrary, part of his calculation was that New York lacked great producers—Scott Rudin being a notable exception—and that there was a niche that needed filling. Among his first two projects was G (2002), a hip-hop reworking of The Great Gatsby set against the backdrop of the Hamptons. For the film, Andrew played an onscreen role as well as his now-larger off-screen role. But after that, he limited himself to producing. That same year, he released the very New York-centric independent movie, The Squid and the Whale, directed by Noah Baumbach and co-produced with Wes Anderson, with whom Andrew Lauren had struck up a friendship on a cross-country train. It’s a good story, worthy of a scene in a Wes Anderson film, perhaps. “I’m not the best flier,” Lauren confesses, in his retelling. “So I would take the train cross-country.” As it happens, Anderson, the quirky director of The Life Aquatic, Fantastic Mr. Fox and, most recently, The Grand Budapest Hotel, shares Lauren’s neurosis about flying; Anderson too regularly takes the cross-country train to L.A. “We became buddies,” Lauren says. “And he introduced me to Noah Baumbach’s project, which had been languishing while Bill Murray made up his mind whether or not to do it.” Eventually, Murray passed and the role went to Jeff Daniels. Then, instead of the original $7 million budget, the movie was made for $1.5 million, according to Peter Newman, another producer on the film and a Lauren friend. “It was pretty stressful,” says Newman, who heads up a dual-degree program at NYU in film and business. “We shot it in five weeks in the summer, and by Thanksgiving it was accepted at Sundance.” Squid would go on to earn three Golden Globe nominations and an Oscar nomination for screenwriting, and put Baumbach firmly on the film map. Always careful with his selection of projects—“Andrew is very patient and discerning; he doesn’t rush into things,” Newman says—Lauren made last summer’s critically acclaimed The Spectacular Now, a coming-of-age tale starring Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller. It was written, Lauren notes, by one of his first interns, Scott Neustadter, who had earlier achieved screenwriting success with 500 Days of Summer, earning his former boss’ pride and admiration. It was Neustadter who brought Lauren the Spectacular Now script.

he film was shot in Athens, Georgia, and Lauren was on set every day, according to Michelle Krumm, president of production at his company. “It didn’t matter what the forecast was or if it was a night shoot,” she says. “Andrew would ride this very cool, rented orange 10-speed to the set every day. We ended up buying it for him as a wrap present, so it’s now wheeling around the streets of New York City.” Krumm also relates that Andrew was arm-twisted into a cameo in the film. “You can see him being an early morning jogger in the paper route scene!” Asked what he looks for in a script, Lauren says he casts a wide net. “Does the film speak to me? Does it have charm?” he says, describing his decision process. Having done coming-of-age and mostly artistic, independent movies, he says he is not ruling out more commercial projects for the future, even possibly a TV series. Tantalizingly, he notes that he recently met with Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston. In fact a number of projects are pending and in various states of development. “It’s a hurry-up-and-wait business,” he explains, as the waiter pours another glass of Sauvignon Blanc. “I’m proud of what I’ve done. I’m not dabbling at this. I think, initially, Hollywood was curious if I was serious or not. They may have thought of me just as a kid with money.” And what does his family think of his work, which, after all, is not in the luxury fashion, or high-end home furnishings empire? (Then again, his sister Dylan’s isn’t either; she has carved out her own sweet success in the candy business.) His younger brother David is the one firmly entrenched in the Ralph Lauren empire, currently serving as executive vice president, advertising, marketing and corporate communications. David also heads the Polo Ralph Lauren Foundation, which supports numerous causes, including cancer research. But Andrew is hardly what anyone would call a wayward child. “My family supports me,” he says, pausing to quip that even the ultra-successful Laurens regularly engage in a conversation that will be

recognizable to almost anyone who has parents. “They do say to me, ‘Why can’t you make a happy film?’” A person of many pursuits and talents, Andrew plays a part in the family business as well. He has always done the music for Ralph Lauren fashion shows, partnering with music supervisor Kevin Fleming. “My father gives me the look book first. He gives me the movie.” Then Andrew and Fleming brainstorm the music. Fleming raves about Lauren’s creativity. “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve scratched my head at some of his radical ideas, only to be grudgingly pulled to see the talent he has for coming up with amazing, creative solutions,” Fleming says. “He once asked me to remix Hank Williams’ ‘Ramblin’ Man.’ I thought he was nuts. But of course it turned out amazing, as the opening track for the Ralph Lauren Spring 2010 fashion show. I learned then to just trust his instincts.” Fleming is equally impressed by Lauren’s style. “He’s the real article,” he says. “He has impeccable personal style that can go from looking like Cary Grant in a black tie, to Steve McQueen in a leather jacket, to Clint Eastwood in a pair of boots.” Lauren and friends often gather for movie nights, where they dress and eat in line with the theme of the movie; in fact one of his proudest possessions is the coat Woody Allen wore in Annie Hall. That stylishness has not gone unnoticed by his father, of course. Recently, Andrew became the face of Ralph Lauren Purple Label, an ultra-high end menswear line. “When they asked me, I told them, ‘I couldn’t possibly,

“Andrew has impeccable personal style that can go from looking like Cary Grant in a black tie, to Steve McQueen in a leather jacket, to Clint Eastwood in a pair of boots.” —Kevin Fleming, music supervisor, Ralph Lauren because I’m way too tall and way too good looking,’” he jokes. But the project is one that he is thrilled to be a part of. “The time seemed right. My hair is getting salt and peppery, and they have given me the leeway to make it my own. I think the customer wants to know how a normal guy would wear these clothes. It’s a fun collaboration. I say, ‘This is how I’d wear it.’ I’m not a model and don’t aspire to it. I’m proud to be a part of the team, and to make great photos.” The Lauren family was always close-knit and still is. There were those family movie nights, summers in Montauk with bonfires on the beach and ATV rides and every conceivable fishing adventure, including one when Andrew picked up a fish that seemed nearly exhausted to death, only to see it suddenly revive and take a giant bite out of his calf. He still has the scar to prove it, he says, but he also has happier memories, like family vacations. “My parents always thought they were our best friends,” he says, describing exotic travels to just about everywhere when he was growing up: New Zealand, Africa and Japan, to name just a few. “We still sometimes go on holiday together,” he says. Indeed, the entire Lauren clan was recently in England to announce the opening of the Ralph Lauren Centre for Breast Cancer Research at The Royal Marsden Hospital. Among the events: a royal dinner where Prince William, Duke of Cambridge; Kate Moss, Cate Blanchett and Benedict Cumberbatch were in attendance. As wonderful as his childhood was, with trips and screenings and parents who exposed him to the best that culture and the entire world had to offer, Lauren admits that a part of him sometimes longed for some of the ordinary pleasures of child—and teenage-hood. “I missed out on having friends,” he says, without a trace of self-pity. “My friends would be hanging out during vacation, playing spin the bottle or something. And my family would be going away.”

s for the future, he’s not ruling anything out. Politics remains an interest. Acting is still a possibility. The family business is always intriguing, and he hugely admires the “amazing, amazing” business his father has built. In the near term, he is moving downtown from uptown, to rent for a year, for a change of scene, and for closer proximity to his Flatiron oﬃce. He has also invested in close friend’s Eduard Frauneder’s restaurant on Avenue C, the Michelin-starred The Third Man, where Lauren enjoys the low-key pleasure of good food and hanging out with friends. He and Frauneder met a few years back and bonded over the fact that their mothers both hailed from Vienna, Austria, among other things. The Third Man is a Viennese-inspired cocktail bar named, for the 1949 film noir. “What better match for a movie producer [then] to be part of a renewed classic?” Frauneder says of Lauren’s support for his establishment, adding, “Above all, Andrew understands that friendship isn’t a big thing; it is a million little things, and he lives it.” As for his personal life, Lauren is single again after a break-up with Under the Influence editor Laetitia Queyranne, with whom he was frequently photographed. And, yes, he’d like to meet someone, have a family—though that’s not as easy as it looks, he points out. “People always say, ‘You’re on Town & Country’s Sexiest, Most Eligible Bachelors list [in 2013, he was third, after Prince Harry and heart-throb Aussie golfer Adam Scott]. You could date any model you want,’” But it’s clear he’s not out to just date models. He yearns for the real thing—something authentic. And that “authentic” tag extends to his summer plans. This year, they’ll involve a lot of time in Montauk, where the Lauren family has been going since “it was a t-shirt,” Lauren quips. Montauk, he says, is “the last semi-untouched place” out on the East End, but change has been coming there, enough that some of “the long-timers are concerned.” Even though Andrew’s past, present and future seem pretty clear, there is still time for a career change. He loves to tell the story of an encounter he had several years ago with the late Ted Sorensen, John F. Kennedy’s speechwriter, while jogging through Central Park. “I introduced myself, told him of my admiration for JFK and [said] how I was interested in getting into politics,” Lauren says. “[Sorensen] said to me, ‘Son, have you ever run a marathon?’” And that was it: advice in the form of a question, one the late Sorensen continued to ask whenever the two bumped into each other, and a question whose meaning Lauren fully understood. He’s still running. ✦

t’s Mick Jagger on grand piano for the tender opening notes of 1975’s “Memory Motel,” his ode to a girl, to a damp and windy Montauk spring, and to life on the road. Keith Richards arrives a few moments later, not on guitar, but on an electric piano. And when sideman Billy Preston joins them on a string synthesizer, it’s clear that the Rolling Stones are a long way from the adolescent sneer of “Satisfaction” or the louche swagger of “Tumbling Dice.” This is a slightly older man’s song, more vulnerable and knowing. “Hannah, honey” Jagger sings wearily, “was a peachy kind of girl…” By some accounts—no surprise that they are hazy—the music was floating around in some form during recording sessions held in Munich in late winter, 1975. But the song’s lyrics and its emotional core emerged only in April and May after the Stones had picked up and moved their circus to east of the then-genteel Hamptons, beyond Montauk Village and nearer the lighthouse built originally at George Washington’s direction in 1792. “The World’s Greatest Rock ‘n Roll Band” had nearly a decade-and-a-half of mayhem behind it by 1975, and it was a group forced by its UK tax-exile status to work on the run. Since 1971, the Stones had rehearsed and recorded on the French Riviera, in Switzerland, Los Angeles and in Jamaica, as well as Rotterdam and Munich. But New York had been a special destination since 1972 when, during their blockbuster American tour, the band became a rowdy diversion for the city’s most fashionable circles. Andy Warhol, Lee Radziwill, Truman Capote, Ahmet Ertegun and photographer/adventurer/legendary ladies’ man Peter Beard ventured out on the Stones’ road to destinations like Dallas and Kansas City. It was Tom Wolfe’s “Radical Chic” at its zenith. And after the shows wrapped up at Madison Square Garden, Mick and Bianca Jagger took their holiday with Princess Radziwill at Eothen, the sprawling and very private Montauk estate owned by Warhol in partnership with the filmmaker Paul Morrissey. The seaside paradise (Eothen is “at first light” in Greek) made an impression. And so it was that Jagger returned with his bandmates three years later: In a cluster of old hunting cabins perched above the sea, the Stones hid from the rest of the world for five weeks as they rehearsed for the coming summer’s massive 1975 Tour of The Americas. The windswept Montauk of fishermen and carpenters was at the time hosting its first few surfers. And artists. And celebrities. Warhol and Radziwill (sometimes accompanied by her sister, Jackie Onassis). Richard Avedon and Peter Beard and Candice Bergen. Truman Capote (over from Sagaponack) and Lauren Hutton. And later, Edward Albee, Julian Schnabel and Ralph Lauren. When their 2014 descendants make their way to Ditch Plains and the Point this summer, they’ll be tapping into a vibe that the Stones helped create and exemplify four decades ago. Montauk’s weathered sea dogs and the haute bohemians who love them. It’s a textured glamour that is these days reaching a new apogee. Montauk is again in high season, a beacon of hip. We’re lucky that the Stones left it such a graceful anthem. Jagger’s knack for a sly lyric is at its best in “Memory Motel” as he starts to recount the story of “Hannah” and their brief liaison. “We spent a lonely night at the Memory Motel,” he sings. It’s an elegant sketch of the isolation within a passing affair, and of the sometimes-desolate feel of the seaside village. The eponymous motel sits to this day at the head of Montauk’s commercial strip. The 1926 building is battered and worn; it’s reputed to have done its patriotic World War II duty as a bordello serving the nearby air and naval installations then maintaining a lookout for German U-Boats. By the time the Stones came to town, the place was being run by two sisters, both heavyset and aging, who believed that wearing their bikinis at all times was a draw for male patrons. The funky barroom still has some cheap

Stones memorabilia—none of it relating to the song or to the 1976 Black and Blue album—scattered across walls painted black. And the oft-told tale that the song came about in some boozy Mick n’ Keith singalong at the Memory’s long-gone piano is pure canard. The Stones wandered in looking for a hard-to-find pool table, but were quickly shown the door lest their presence damage the place’s sterling reputation. Jagger got a line out of the indignity, anyway. Mick’s “lonely nights at the Memory Motel” are in the art, not the life. “Hannah” herself (not her real name) is a different matter. I found her quite by accident a few years ago. She’s still out East, but has long since decamped for the Madison Avenue-by-thesea splendor of East Hampton. She didn’t require a whole lot of poetic license from Mick. The period photo she showed me over a recent lunch has that glow that’s completely specific to Ivory Girl 1970s blondes. Jagger’s lyric nods to her hazel eyes, and she’s “a honey of a girl” to this day. Her first meeting with the singer came “down by the ocean” at Eothen. Hannah was walking her dogs on the beach below the compound when she cut across the property to reach the long, sandy private road that threaded out toward her cabin at the Deep Hollow horse ranch. It had just started to rain when Mick pulled up slowly in a vast sedan, a Lowenbrau wedged between his legs. At first she demurred, but as he drove away—even more slowly, to let her consider it—she thought, “What am I, crazy?” and ran to the car. Back at her place, things, ahem, took off. It was, after all, 1975. The affair “just felt so easy and natural,” she told me. The world’s biggest rock star facing the world’s biggest tour made every last move seem effortless. “I was breakfast for him!” she laughs. “But I never, ever, felt dirty or used.” Hannah’s still impressed: “He was just so cool and laid-back. They all were.” Even back in the village, the local code of rugged individualism worked for the band. “No one made a big deal about the Stones because they didn’t make a big deal. Montauk gave them their space.”

f there’s a clubhouse at the heart of Montauk’s “Wild East” culture, it’s Jimmy Hewitt’s Shagwong Bar (primary) and Restaurant (very secondary) in the middle of town. Hewitt has by now owned the place for 45 years and he’s got the weathered mug to prove it. While running the saloon by night, he used to procure Bluefish blood (which doesn’t turn brown, but stays a deep, rich red) for Halston to use in hand-dyeing his coveted and très cher curtains. Paul Simon, Robert De Niro and Elizabeth Taylor have hoisted drinks with the fishermen at the bar over the years, and celebrity status has never conferred the same clout and distance it does elsewhere. The first time Jagger came by, he had a strange notion to bring his own bottle. “I kicked him out,” Hewitt told me. “I didn’t know who the fuck he was.” But the relationship was mended, and Mick was in the bar often. Local artist Noel Arikian remembers the singer arriving in “a copper-colored Mercedes with English plates.” Altered states and culture shock may have been in play: Jagger drove the car in from the east and slid into a spot immediately in front of the gin mill—convenient, but pointed into traffic on the Imperial “wrong side of the road.” The impossibly chic Bianca Jagger had a smoother run in the Shagwong. She sat in the corner, where she learned how to open clams during the summer of 1972, a little more than a year into her ill-fated marriage to Mick. In that spring of ’75, the singer was arriving with Hannah, sometimes by bicycle, sometimes in the battered turquoise truck that she had driven into town from Taos, New Mexico. “She drove a pick-up truck,” goes the song. “Painted green and blue. The tires were wearin’ thin. She turned a mile or two.”

STONES TAK E OVER MONT AUK
ack at Eothen, film producer and Warhol confidant Vincent Fremont served as the artist’s emissary and trouble-shooter for the Stones’ rehearsals. Fremont had circulated within the overlapping Stones and Warhol orbits for a number of years since 1972, and had passed seaside afternoons with Mick, Bianca and Catherine Deneuve. “All the Europeans who visited loved the place,” he told me. “The lawns and grasses reminded them of moors, I think.” But the rich social history didn’t spare him the singer’s tough business approach. Jagger flatly declared the estate’s proposed rental fee “a rip-off ” before a deal was finally hammered out. Later, as the Stones’ workweeks unfolded, Fremont oversaw the security detail that eventually had to be put in place. The Stones, who are these days chronicled moment-by-moment on Facebook, had run into New York and pulled a memorable pre-tour publicity coup by performing “Brown Sugar” while on a flatbed truck rolling down Fifth Avenue. As anticipation for the Tour of the Americas built, New York rock stations spread word of the Montauk residency, spurring obsessed fans to make the three-hour expedition east. Fremont’s second security brief involved keeping the Eothen groundskeepers safe from Keith by delaying their noisy work until four in the afternoon, when the Stones finally arose for the coming night’s work. “They made the most god-awful racket I ever heard,” Jimmy Hewitt exclaimed when I asked about his privileged audiences with the band at work. Stones sessions and rehearsals have for decades had a lore unto themselves in which observers are stunned by how absolutely dreadful the band is—right up to that magic moment when it’s not. I visited the compound a couple of times in the mid-2000s and it still boggles my mind to think about the musicians setting up on the stone floors of Eothen’s main hall, bashing the music into road-worthiness. Hannah remembered coming in off the beach and spending several afternoons smoking pot before repairing to the hall’s far corners for discreet visits with Mick as band members and roadies began to drift through the large darkened space. But with all the chaos and challenges of the setting, the work got done. “The World’s Greatest Rock ‘n Roll Band” found itself once again. Vincent Fremont, for whom there were so many logistical and interpersonal challenges, remembered standing out in the seaside mist and listening to the Stones do an aching version of “Wild Horses.” “That was, you know…pretty good,” he told me with a laugh. “Memory Motel” the song eventually shifts locations out of Montauk and onto the road. Not long before the band had “to fly today on down to Baton Rouge” and opening night of the Tour of the Americas, Hannah brought Mick and Keith over to see the horses at Deep Hollow Ranch, not far from Eothen. “It was a rodeo!” she told me with a laugh. “There were maybe eight people there. Just another quiet night in Montauk.” Richards, who had grown up working-poor in drab post-war Britain, had spent his entire childhood dressed as Roy Rogers and dreaming of an America that he saw in the cinema. But that spring evening, he was dressed for the rococo middle 1970s. Keith wandered around the ranch, among riders and spectators, over hay and manure, positively resplendent in a three-piece pink satin suit. The Rolling Stones had gotten what they had needed from the town before leaving it with stories to tell and a song to be sung: “Just a memory . . . of a love that used to be.” ✦

The Summer of 2014
A-LIST The Hamptonites who make the East End cool and the summer nights hot
uly officially marks the Hamptons high season, when Manhattanites abandon the sweltering city for the soft sand and cool breezes of Long Island’s South Fork. In the thick of the summer, we pack up our swimsuits, surf boards and linen sundresses and dive right into long summer days filled with grassy lawns, saltwater pools and beach clubs. We get to unwind with old friends at outdoor dinners that stretch late into the night; dance in the balmy heat at glamorous parties like the Watermill Center and Southampton Hospital benefits, and enjoy the grand old grounds of some of the most beautiful (and valuable) estates in the country. There is a certain group of people who make the East End the summer society headquarters—the beautiful, successful and energetic individuals who are on absolutely everybody’s guest lists. Some come from old, storied families; some have paved their own way; some are stalwarts, and some are having their moment now—but no gathering is complete without at least a handful of the Hamptons’ most wanted; the Summer of 2014 A-listers.

For many in the selling game, opening weekend in the Hamptons is a big deal. The one exception may be Tripoli Patterson, who recently started his sixth season at his small but potent Tripoli Gallery on Southampton’s Jobs Lane, where he has established himself as a serious art champion among the retail stores full of shoes, sweaters and handbags. “I don’t care if the Kardashians are coming to town,” he said on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend as he was overseeing the final touches before the opening of an exhibition by Gordon Stevenson. “It’s not about the fancy cars and celebrities; it’s about the art scene that’s here all year, which is why this area got so popular in the first place.” Indeed, the history of the East End is tied to its artists, including Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Fairfield Porter, Jane Freilicher, Robert Motherwell, Dennis Oppenheim and Dan Flavin, among others. And of course there’s the youngest group, now old enough to be the parents of Patterson, 29. They include Eric Fischl, April Gornik, David Salle, Ross Bleckner, Cindy Sherman, Robert Wilson and Julian Schnabel—the latter a friend of Patterson’s who decorated the gallerist’s surfboard and whose daughter, Lola, shows in his space. Patterson, who’s such a good surfer that Oakley dresses him and sponsors his trips, is a native whose godmother was the late Lisa de Kooning, and whose bohemian mother, Terry, a surfer and gardener and mother of four, brought him up to be equally fearless in the water and among her artsy crowd. (His father is an art dealer from Costa Rica.) Cocky and casual, he is comfortable with surfers, skaters and artists, although he never studied art himself. And he especially appreciates the efforts of his fellow forward-thinking local art presenters, which include the Glenn Horowitz Gallery and the Drawing Center, both in East Hampton, and The Fireplace Project in Springs. “It’s about having important shows for people to see, not just to sell,” Patterson said. To that end, he will be showing Keith Sonnier, the established conceptual artist (who is represented by Mary Boone Gallery in Manhattan) from July 17 to August 17. What matters to Patterson is, of course, the work, but also the fact that Sonnier has the same ties to the area as other artists he typically chooses to feature. “I’m not going to do a show with people I don’t know,” he said. And because he’s trusted, he’s been able to negotiate exhibitions with artists, like Sonnier, who are represented by other galleries and who include Ross Bleckner, Mary Heilmann and Billy Sullivan. The renowned critic and curator Klaus Kertess even wrote an introduction to a catalogue last summer for a group show about water. The Parrish Museum collaborates with Patterson as well: It’s invited him to bring
in artists for special programs and events and solicited his membership on a junior committee, to engage the younger set. But for all the reach available to a man who started curating locally when he was 22 years old and has gained enough momentum to be considered a player, why Southampton and not Chelsea? “Because I’m from here, and I’m building a foundation of expertise, just like I did as a surfer before I tried the biggest waves,” he said. “Besides, so many art world people are here. I can see why. Whenever I’m in New York, I always start breathing faster and looking forward to getting back here.” Which is not to say that the living is always so easy when the season is in full swing. “The other day, my car stalled out and this guy behind me started honking and cursing me out,” he said. “I try not to take it personally and let it ruin my day.” And why should he? His business is a success, his professional forecast bright and his connections in the field deeper by the year. Plus, his landlord loves him, and after finishing a five-year lease, he’s just renewed for another five. Not bad in a town where galleries and shops come and go as fast as celebrity marriages and nail polish colors. “The most important thing is to stay with it,” he said. Outside his office, the first guests were arriving for the opening of the show by Gordon Stevenson, a 26–year-old artist and Hamptons regular whose work is inspired by childhood cartoons. Patterson peeled off his Oakley T-shirt and put on a collared shirt and jacket loaned to him from the local John Varvatos store. The jacket was a funky plaid in a slate blue that matched his eyes. It didn’t make him look any older. He buttoned the shirt, put on some shoes and then, for the heck of it, jumped on a skateboard in his office, and did an ollie or two, flipping it in the air as he leaped. He had friends coming with whom he skateboarded up the road, as rowdy kids with time on their hands. “I haven’t skateboarded in ages,” he said. “I guess I’m really old now.” The crowd that gathered included a heady mix of young and old, socialites and bohemians, outfitted in everything from crew necks and velvet slippers to unlaced sneakers. By the wall, a couple of clear coolers full of electric pink lemonade spiked with vodka beckoned with the promise of an intoxicating summer of art, surfing and socializing. “Youth punch,” Patterson said. Indeed. ✦

SHaping The Terrain Michael Derrig, the Founder of Landscape Details
3 LAndscape Details Clockwise from top right: 1. Private Residence 2. Jericho Residence 3. Highland Terrace 4. Michael Derrig
Michael Derrig knows a thing or two about curating a property. He’s been a landscape architect for over 25 years and has made the Hamptons, and the area’s changing seasons, his business. To create order out of the wild is his aspiration, but Derrig does more than this: He makes landscapes evolve. And why shouldn’t he? Hamptons residents are on the cutting edge of taste, and the last thing they want is stasis. With his design process, Derrig, in fact, encourages client participation. It’s this respect for balance that makes him the rare and valuable commodity that he is.
When designing a landscape in the East End, what are the climate challenges you prepare for? On the East End we experience lots of wind; and salt damage this past winter was brutal. There are some steps we take to protect our clients’ properties: We put plants in the right position on the property to protect them. Pruning carefully is also important, to protect trees and shrubs from snow overload. Additionally, we winter-burlap-wrap trees and plants to protect them from wind and snow; you can’t let branches get leggy, and this protects them from breaking. Many properties we care for are on waterways or by the ocean, so these steps are essential. Obviously in summer, irrigation, root feeding and treatment and keeping beds weed free are also important.

How do you create room for the evolution of a garden or landscape over time? Is it something that you can predict? I’ve been a landscape architect for over 25 years. Planning is essential—it’s what we do—not only planning the space but also planning for plants to flower and bloom throughout the seasons. We review plans with each client and then show them photographs of the plants and trees we intend to use, so they’re familiar with each specimen and its behavior; this helps our clients imagine the way their property will evolve over time. In general we tend to use fewer plant varieties and more cohesive plant groupings, which can improve the overall aesthetic of a landscape. Who wants a highmaintenance garden?

B EST I N C L A S S What experience prior to the creation of Landscape Details gave you the confidence to have success in the Hamptons? That’s an interesting question. I think one gets confidence from conviction, passion and experience. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to work with clients who “come on board” and get as passionate as I am about their projects and properties. It’s hard not to have success in the Hamptons; people have great taste; they have expansive properties and they’re interested in making statements with beautiful specimen trees. We actually just opened a tree farm so that our clients can have the highestquality trees that we’ve cared for, where they want them and when they want them. 1 1

Where did you develop your aesthetic for landscapes and your feel for the assimilation of sculpture and gardens? I have many inspirations, including [landscape architects] A.E. Bye and Dan Kiley. All garden design is sculptural in its nature— we are always balancing scale and color and finding focal points. When we get to integrate a sculpture by Botero or Segal, it’s a privilege and keeps things interesting. We always add lighting so the art can be appreciated in the evening; this can create great drama, and from what I’m told, sparks interesting conversations. Do clients ever come to you with eclectic visions or do the majority of your clients request geometric designs?
136 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2014
Of course some of our clients come to us with images they’ve seen in magazines, in books; or they bring pictures they’ve taken in Europe, and we encourage them to participate in the process. Others have seen our work or seen something written about us, and they want us to take the lead. Each client is different ,and that’s part of what makes this process fun and keeps everyone on our team engaged. 3
What flora best represent the East End in your mind? Of course, large trees, Beech trees, London Plane trees and Linden trees. We do a lot with crepe myrtles as well. We love working with boxwood because they’re evergreen and slow growing— which facilitates planning. We also work with grasses because they provide a naturalistic accent that moves beautifully and provides a variety of textures. ✦

“There is no substitute for the crucial, comparative, firsthand information provided by an experienced, professional real estate broker.”
140 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2014
property’s value is the product of many factors. Size, quality, condition, location, ceiling height, light, supply and demand all play an important part. Various types of property are impacted differently. Property value is affected by national and even international economic conditions, but it may also be nuanced by—and subject to—an interpretation of local market conditions. In fact, the value of residential real estate is first of all local. There is no “one” real estate market. While there are public sources of factual information on residential real estate, from websites to public records, as innovative, attractive and popular as some of them may be, they provide specific data only. There is no substitute for the crucial, comparative, firsthand information provided by an experienced, professional real estate broker whose service goes beyond data to encompass variables that significantly affect home value. Even actual sales prices posted on public websites once a property has closed are usually out of date after the typical three-or-more-month lag between contract signing and closing. The right broker is aware of the current market—as of any specific moment—including prices presently being achieved, listings coming on the market, negotiability, current market tempo and contracts currently being signed. Other current market factors the broker knows about include the all-important variables that are not data driven but comprise the broad and most useful view of home-value information. This view is crucial for all sellers and buyers. Even the best technologies do not replace a professional broker’s expert knowledge, insight and expertise. ✦

s temperatures rise and days lengthen, Thursdays become the new unofficial Friday for those traveling out east. The worries of what tie will match what suit become what SPF and sunhat will appropriate the days activities. As just the right amount of skin is bared, one can see the great effort people put in to looking so good in the months prior. As perfectly sculpted legs, arms and midsections hit the tennis courts, pools and courses this summer, we watch and compare, those from each other and those from ourselves. Just as we compare the engines and bodies of our finely tuned automobiles, we compare ourselves and just the same. How much work did one put into it? How much longer will it run effortlessly, does it look great but not run/function the same as it appears? A car can look beautiful on the exterior but if the engine isn’t up to par, then it will never win the race. The same key to keeping your engine strong and your car fast is the same key to living young within your body into later years. Addressing the pain in your knee today can avoid much larger complications later in life. Cutting edge advancements in technology have allowed us the ability to keep up with our bodies when we need it most, making feeling young as attainable as looking young. Arthroscopic Partial knee replacements and Labral hip repairs can now be performed at early signs of joint degradation, with little to no down time for the patient. Advanced arthroscopic technologies also allow for those with Rotator Cuff injuries to have the smallest incision as of yet with
the least amount of down time than ever before. State-of-the-art Biologics now present a possible alternative to surgical orthopedic procedures, using Stem cell therapy, cartilage grafting, Hyuloron (“Gel”) injections and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections we are now able to avoid surgical procedures that had no other option in the past as well as increasing healing time significantly. Just as the engines in our luxury automobiles

Your Summer Workout Mary Ann Browning of the BrowningMethod
t’s the Fourth of July and time for everything we love about summer: fun, sun and relaxation. While an essential part of life is enjoying the activities we love most, that does not mean you can let your diet and exercise regimen go completely. We work hard all year round, getting in shape, to enjoy the summer. It is no longer enough to hit the gym for an hour and call it a day. Instead, you should spend as much time as possible being active. In the summer, this is easy. Go outside for a bike ride; go for a run; play tennis; swim in a pool, a lake, the ocean. If you are at the ocean, take the time and the initiative to walk along the beach instead of lying on your towel. The options are endless. What you don’t want to do is spend an hour in the gym and then think you are off the hook for the rest of the day. When you are training hard, it is important to maintain positive habits to help you recover. Eat right, drink lots of water and get plenty of sleep. Aim for eight hours every day. If you can’t get all those hours in at night, take a nap in the afternoon. With the warm weather and the ability to spend time outdoors, it is extremely important to stay hydrated. An easy formula to remember that you should strive for is: Consume half your body weight in ounces every day. This will also help you cut back on unnecessary snacking. Of course, maintaining a healthy diet is difficult in the summer, especially around food-centered holidays like the Fourth of July. However, that goal is not impossible. It is important not to abandon the healthy eating habits you have maintained throughout the year. Don’t skip breakfast, don’t eat only fruit or try to live off juices. These trends may work for a little while but they are impossible to sustain and will only leave you right back where you started. Keep it simple: Eat a balanced, sensible diet, without over-eating or over-drinking. Finally, the most important element of your summer workout is the BrowningMethod. My philosophy has been crafted through years of experience, to help you build muscle where you don’t have it, to burn fat in the places you do. By practicing smart and effective weight training, combined with cardiovascular exercise and proper nutrition, my method will help you not only to lose weight but to change your body shape. Even 30 minutes a day, in conjunction with a fun outdoor activity, can help you achieve and maintain the results you want. Make sure to focus on your upper body and core muscles. Too much emphasis on working your legs will only make them bigger, not slimmer. We have designed Brownings Summer Sweat Classes to specifically focus on the upper body and on cardio in order to get you beach-ready in no time. The boot-camp-style classes are being held at the Southampton Track Saturdays and Sundays at 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. Or come to our beautiful, sunny gym at 60 Windmill Lane in Southampton for personal training at its very best. Experience the BrowningMethod yourself but, more importantly, experience lasting, dramatic results. ✦

Connecticut Paradise Katharine Hepburn’s Legendary Estate
egendary actress Katharine Hepburn’s quiet summer escape, a historic waterfront dream estate located in the Fenwick borough of Old Saybrook, Connecticut, has returned to the market. The property is listed with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty agent Collette Harron, for $14,800,000. The house contains over 8,000 square feet on three floors overlooking astounding views of the sound and a pond. Hepburn and her family constructed the home in 1939, and for 65 years the highly acclaimed Hollywood actress used this Fenwick “paradise,” as she often called it, as her summer retreat. Wanting to keep this retreat as secluded as possible, Hepburn built her house on a 1.5-acre lot surrounded by two more waterfront lots for a total of 3.5 acres. Inside, there are six bedrooms, seven-and-a-half baths and seven fireplaces. Living spaces include living and dining rooms that overlook the sound and pond, a kitchen with an AGA stove and Sub-Zero refrigerator, a den, chart room, potting room, pantry and laundry room. On the vast, pristine grounds of the estate are a sandy beach and dock with boating access to the Hamptons. The property also has the convenient ability for seaplanes to land in front of the house for casual afternoon visits, which Hepburn often enjoyed by her friend, aviator Howard Hughes. The estate came to the market in 2011 with a listing price of $18,000,000 for the home on the original plot of land, while the whole 3.5 acre paradise was offered at $28,000,000. Having been off the market for over a year, the house has just been relisted without the two additional 150 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2014
lots. Owner Frank Sciame, the founder of Sciame Construction, is currently building a beach house for his family on one and securing approvals to build another home on the other. Back in 2005, this New York City builder oversaw renovations of the historic landmark, raising it 5 feet for protection from devastating storms such as Hurricane Sandy. He also installed new systems and expanded the residence with light-filled rooms to illuminate its architectural beauty. “The historic Katharine Hepburn home remains the quintessential family estate, featuring an extraordinary renovation that maintains its legacy,” said Harron. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to market this most prized and cherished possession of one of our culture’s most important icons.” The home epitomizes the legacy of Katharine Hepburn and her eternal, peaceful mark on Old Saybrook’s beautiful shoreline. ✦

A Place in the Sun Protect your skin with Hampton Sun
Any well-informed Hamptonite knows that you should never leave your house without your sun cream! This summer, Hampton Sun introduces two new innovative sun-care products to protect your skin and achieve a healthy glow! A new 100 percent mineral natural sun cream specifically For Baby is hypo-allergenic and chemical-sunscreen-free and includes natural moisturizers such as sunflower oil, lavender oil and beeswax. The unique SPF 45 baby sunscreen is tear-free, paraben-free and sting-free! For those wishing to receive an instant sun-kissed glow while still keeping out of the sun, the new Airbrush Bronzing Mist for the body is the perfect summer companion. The Bronzing Mist evenly spreads a golden veil of color and dries quickly to a silky powder finish. Naturally infused with sweet almond and macadamia oils, it hydrates your skin and washes off at your convenience. Salvatore Piazzolla, a creative leader in luxury sun care, and president of Hampton Sun, shares with us some tips on how to enjoy the sun this summer and protect your skin.
“I highly recommend Hampton Sun products. They include several technical advancements attributed to Polycrylene®, a unique and novel ingredient which helps enhance SPF strength and improve water resistance” —Dermatologist Lance H. Brown, MD 152 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2014
How did you come about creating Hampton Sun? I’ve always been interested in the beauty industry, and one summer day almost 10 years ago, my partner Grant Wilfley and I were lounging poolside at our home in Southampton. We realized that after all of our travels, we hadn’t come across any sun-protection products that were glamorous or luxurious, that there was a clear gap in the marketplace. We had the idea to create a brand that emulated the Hamptons lifestyle which felt different, smelled amazing and incorporated the highest technology available. We came up with the name Hampton Sun and found out that many people in our social circle had connections in product development and packaging, which was a great start. And the rest is history! Can I use last year’s sun cream? Hampton Sun SPF products all have a three-year shelf life. Experts recommend using the expiration date and batch codes, or writing the date of purchase on the product, so you’re able to tell how long the product will perform at its top effectiveness. However, if you’re spending a lot of time in the sun, are using enough of the product to cover all exposed skin and are reapplying with the recommended regularity, a sunscreen shouldn’t last more than a season. What are the best treatments for sunburn? If you follow the reapplication and water-resistant guidelines on the packaging, you shouldn’t get a sunburn at all with Hampton Sun. But if you happen to, we have two amazing after-sun products that will help to moisturize, soothe, calm and repair skin. Our After Sun Daily Moisturizer is full of natural oils and extracts that bring hydration and calming properties to the skin. If you’re more of an on-the-go person, we also have an oil-free Hydrating Aloe Mist with menthol, which offers a super-easy application of natural Aloe Vera juice to calm the skin’s surface and help ease the discomfort of sunburn. What makes Hampton Sun unique among other sun creams? Hampton Sun products only offer the highest level of sun protection but focus very closely on creating the utmost luxury sun-care experience and moisturizing the skin while you are in the sun. Our Classic Collection of sun-tanning gels and lotions all have a distinct scent and smooth, silky application and glide onto skin effortlessly. Our Luxe Sport Continuous Mist Collection offers the same luxury application, but in a convenient ecofriendly, nonaerosol spray. No matter how you like to spend time in the sun, sunbathing or taking part in high-powered athletics, there is a fabulous Hampton Sun product for you! ✦

An Expert in Pediatric Dentistry A conversation with Barry L. Jacobson, DMD
What are the biggest mistakes parents make when it comes to their children’s dental care? The first mistake is thinking that your child is walking and talking, so he is okay to brush his teeth himself. Typically, children’s tooth-brushing is very similar to their handwriting. When their manual dexterity develops so that their handwriting is as good as yours, they are ready for unsupervised brushing. Before that time, it is crucial that a responsible adult check the brushing and rebrush the areas missed, twice a day. The second mistake is thinking that since the teeth look okay and nothing is hurting, that it’s not yet time to go to the dentist. Sadly, many parents procrastinate in making well-child dental visits and establishing a dental home for the child. They later come to the office saying, “I think I see a cavity,” and typically 20 minutes later, we are counting half a dozen cavities on the x-rays and planning major work. Almost all dental disease is preventable, with the help of proactive and involved parents who invest in those early visits to the dentist. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that the first well-child dental visit take place six months after the first tooth appears. What new technology should parents look for in their pediatric dental office? The dentist should be constantly at the cusp of innovation, to provide your children with the best science has to offer. Today, that means at least digital x-rays and a hard tissue laser. Digital x-rays reduce radiation exposure by almost 90 percent of what we had as children, and the hard tissue laser is a way to perform most dental fillings without the dreaded [anesthesia] needle. The hard tissue laser also cuts less tooth structure, and since it’s water-seeking, and caries have much more H20 than healthy tooth structure, the laser seeks caries as a target tissue much more than a healthy tooth. The net result is smaller fillings, less destruction of healthy tooth, less anesthesia and ultimately happier patients and better experiences. What is the most rewarding part of your job? The most rewarding part of my job is being able to help a scared child who needs significant dental work make it through the experience and laugh because he or she realizes that that fear was for nothing. Creating happy children who have a great dental experience means less dental phobia, and it means I made a difference in a child’s life. Nothing beats that moment in my day. 158 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2014
What advice do you have for parents looking for a pediatric dentist? I would look for a board-certified pediatric dentist with at least 10 years’ realworld experience. And I would look for a dentist who invests in technology that helps provide better care for your child. If the office looks out of date the dental care won’t be much different. If you want to invest in a great dental experience for your children, look for a dentist who’ll invest in it too. ✦

Master of Design Stephen Bastone and his creative visions for interior design What is your design philosophy? You have to know the rules to break the rules—for me, decoration is part of a lifestyle, appreciating beauty overall; it’s the art, it’s the food, it’s the fashion . . . an appreciation of refinement. Whether classical or modern, it is important to possess an awareness of where things are derived. I mean, no-one popped out of a pod! Opinions matter insofar as where they come from, ideally opinions should matter when they come from people who possess a knowledge of history as well a sense of fun. Who were your mentors? I was fortunate enough to work with Vincent Fourcade, who brought the de Rothschild style to America. He was the real deal—not only a connoisseur, but someone who lived the style he brought to people like Jayne Wrightsman, Oscar de la Renta, and Henry Kravis. I’ve also been fortunate to work with Alberto Pinto who, with his international clientele, showed me an unparalleled sense of opulence. Where do you ﬁnd inspiration for your designs and the materials you use? For me, it’s all about the rough with the refined. For example, a great source of inspiration are The Pavlovsk Palaces: the Russian Czars who commissioned their most important furniture from the same manufacturers who produced their arms, using steel with gold—the combination works for a modern lifestyle. I apply that attitude to both period and modern looks with furniture from the ‘30s and ‘40s.

ROOM OVERVIEW: The carpet is an Empire Savonnerie, 1820; Dassi coffee table, 1940s; the Bastone-designed sofa is a crème silk French damask from Christopher Hyland; Paolo Buffa chairs, 1940s; Grosfeld House clearglass tables, 1940s; on the table: Russian pink roedenite, gold-mounted and precious stone-mounted dish, 1890; E.F. Caldwell Regency style carved ivory and ormoulo mounted box; Empire Paris porcelain and bisque neoclassical vases, 1810; lamps are 1950s gilt bronze; Rosewood Regency chairs from Newell Antiques, 1820s.
What’s the most exciting part of your job? I adore the creative process—I began in the fine arts, started out in advertising, wanting to be in the bull-pen on Madison Avenue. I have a great sense of subliminal seduction and its role in creating an atmosphere. It is extremely rewarding to take a Napoleon silk from the nineteenth century and reinvent it in a modern way for a country house bedroom. Or, for that matter, reinventing a 1930’s night table to be practical in a Manhattan home. It’s all about insight. I interpret my clients’ taste with my sense of history and style. ✦

Stephen P. Wald
Licensed Real Estate Broker What do you think it is about you that attracts so many A-list clients? My comprehensive understanding of property valuation and my constant search for value-driven properties, combined with discretion and a 24/7 work ethic. What benefits does a buyer or seller get from working with a smaller firm like yours? “Good things come in small packages.” Along with market knowledge, longevity in the industry and excellent brokerage relationships, we offer all of our clients a “white glove/ concierge” level of service. We are not a large corporate brokerage firm. Therefore, the client comes first at all times. Commissions are never an issue. Marketing is not subject to a specific budget per agent, if it makes sense we do it. We can afford to be creative. Our goal is to represent our clients and to exceed their expectations. My name and reputation is at stake with every transaction. What experience/expertise do you bring to the table? I have been a real estate professional for almost 30 years representing both buyers and sellers of luxury homes and investment properties. Much of my work lately has been with
S T E P H E N P. W A L D R E A L E S T A T E A S S O C I A T E S , I N C . foreign nationals whose needs include complicated tax and estate planning. Fortunately my wife, Immeke Schmidt, is a T&E attorney with international expertise. What excites you most about your job? Client satisfaction is what keeps me motivated in a fast-paced market. When representing a new sales listing, pricing correctly is critical; and closing the transaction quickly is the one sign that my judgment was right on. What would you recommend to those trying to sell their home? For luxury property in need of updating, I would strongly recommend designer showcase staging. Our staff design team has transformed numerous apartments into a buyer’s dream home, which can be offered fully furnished for those buyers seeking a turn-key experience. What advice would you give someone looking to buy real estate as an investment in Manhattan now? Look for long-term gain. Base your investment not just on your annual return on investment but on your future growth in equity. 44 Gramercy Park North. This 12-floor aerie is the perfect living and entertaining space, a 30-foot living room with 17-foot ceiling, a wood-burning fireplace, two en-suite bedrooms, a 490-foot terrace, stone walls, and 14 stained glass windows. This property has 85 feet of continuous frontage overlooking Gramercy Park. A full-service cooperative. $7 million.

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker What do you think it is about you that attracts so many A-list clients? The short answer is service. The thing that makes someone desirable in any type of sales, especially the luxury sector, is the ability to understand exactly what your client wants, have the knowledge and expertise to guide them and the ability to execute flawlessly the job for which they hired you. Many of my clients are incredibly busy people who are used to the best in products and services; they don’t like to settle and I don’t expect them to. My service to both buyers and sellers is best described as “bespoke brokerage,” with an emphasis on client care and satisfaction. What professional accomplishments this year are you proudest of? It’s been a fabulous year so far. Most of my time and sales have been on the Upper East Side, in a segment of the market that has been nonstop. My basic business is always something I want to get up and do every day because I have the pleasure of representing so many incredible people and properties. This year was exceptional, as I had a fantastic experience and tremendous success with my partner Jason Karadus, selling The Charles, our project at 1355 First Avenue, which we represented on behalf of Town New Development and Bluerock, our developers. These are going to be
TOWN RESIDENTIAL stunning full-floor homes, with intelligent floor plans, located in an incredible building, with interiors by David Collins Studio that are best described as sublime. Are there any causes you’re very passionate about? This spring, I had the honor of participating, along with ten other ambassadors from Town, who are friends and associates, in a trip to New Orleans to take part in a volunteer endeavor for the Make it Right Foundation. Brad Pitt started this foundation, along with some of the world’s foremost experts in sustainable and affordable housing. It was one of the most exciting and educational experiences that I can remember, not because of the famous names that were attached to the effort, but for the sheer brilliance, hard work and soul that turned a very difficult story into one with a good ending.
145 East 76th Street–A three-bedroom, plus library or fourth bedroom. Threeand-a-half baths. $5.75 million. Flawlessly renovated and perfectly situated west of Third Avenue, this seven-room condominium provides the perfect home for the buyer with discerning taste.

Licensed Associate Real Estate Agent What is it about you that attracts so many A-list clients? They all want the very best, the most experienced, knowledgeable, professional and honest agent. I feel that that is what I bring to the table: 24 years’ experience in this market during which I’ve consistently been at the very top of my profession. I am very straightforward and they also love the fact that I am a workaholic and a perfectionist. What advice would you give someone looking to buy real estate as an investment in your area now? I think the time is right to buy now while there’s still a good amount of inventory to choose from. I believe the market will continue to improve; and as we all know, when the inventory starts to deplete, the prices go up. Buy the best property you can afford, in your price range. Remember, you can always make improvements to a home but you cannot change the location. What professional accomplishment(s) this year are you proudest of? I’m proudest of being ranked so highly by the Wall Street Journal. It’s a nationwide ranking by sales volume; I was ranked #2 in 2011 and #12 in 2012 in the US making me the #1 Hamptons agent for the previous two years!
THE CORCORAN GROUP What would you recommend to those trying to sell their home? What are the little things they can do that really go a long way? Price is most important. You don’t want to chase the market. Price competitively. We would much rather see you turn down offers than not receive any. Presentation of your home is also important. Fresh paint, de-cluttering of your home, updated appliances and clean rooms are all important. If you have a new home or one that is unfurnished, it is extremely helpful to have it staged or furnished. What current listing are you particularly proud of? I am currently marketing quite a few extraordinary properties. First is Brand New Oceanfront, 3 acres in East Hampton with a pool and “party house” plus a cabana right on the beach; second is Rose Hill Point which is one of the most stunning homes I have ever seen on Mecox Bay plus their own “private island”. The third is a unique 17 acre compound in Bridgehampton south of the highway, includes new large custom home with two separate 2 acre building lots, including a pool, tennis court, two outbuildings, outdoor kitchen, fireplace and putting green with permits for a possible horse farm should you so desire!
Sprawled across 2.3 acres on Mecox Bay, a magnificent 15,000 SF, 7+ bedroom gambrel home, it is destined to be the most spectacular residence ever to come to market on Mecox Bay. Co-Exclusive. $32.95M WEB#18638

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson What is the big market trend right now? We may end up calling 2014 the “Year of the Mega Deals.” Let’s define that as anything close to the $100 million mark, as Morgan Brennan of Forbes magazine has proposed. Over the last several months, five transactions have ranged between $55 million and $150 million. The Hamptons market appears to be hitting its pre-2007 stride. Prices are strong across the board in all segments, but the staggeringly high-priced mega sales are getting the attention. What other trends are unfolding at the high end of Hamptons real estate? Modern is in. Sleek glass-and-beam residences are emerging everywhere in the Hamptons. Take a drive, for example, down the “Golden Mile” in Southampton, Meadow Lane. It’s a virtual construction site of ultra-high-end modern homes. Another trend is the wave of buyers from overseas. We are seeing more and more very wealthy Chinese interested in buying homes in the Hamptons. I have introduced two different parties from China to the finest, highest-priced estates out here—and in both cases, I needed an interpreter to do it. They are making credible all-cash offers for homes in the most expensive segments of the market.
S O T H E B Y ’ S I N T E R N A T I O N A L R E A LT Y What is it that you like about being a broker in the Hamptons? First, I meet fascinating people from all over the world: CEOs and financial executives, artists and authors, cultural icons and thought leaders in business, economics and science. Second, I’m tasked and trusted to help them buy or sell a property that balances their desires across privacy, presence and price, bringing in the best experts in the business when needed. Third—and this is both challenging and exciting—I have to be continuously innovative, resourceful and patient to get all parties to take the right steps at the right time to yield a successful transaction. Seeing my client happy at a closing is deeply rewarding for me. And I get to do it all from one of the most beautiful places in the world. I have to pinch myself because I feel so lucky.
East Hampton. Asking $18.5 million Undoubtedly one of the most exquisite and prestigious locations in all the Hamptons, this 3.62-acre waterfront parcel on a private peninsula with 478 feet of pond frontage awaits a substantial home that will maximize the panoramic views of Georgica Pond, the waves of the Atlantic Ocean and Georgica Beach.

Faye S. Weisberg
Licensed Real Estate Salesperson What do you think it is about you that attracts so many A-list clients? I am a professional that cares and exudes positive energy. Because it matters to me that all aspects and details of the transaction are attended to, I have a reputation for being able to complete some of the most difficult transactions. My clients and customers continuously refer me because they’ve experienced my focused work ethic and my creative business sense. What excites you most about your job? I have been selling real estate for 17 years and I still love it. Every day a new door opens to meet new people, to see new homes, and to make new lifelong friends. I am constantly called upon to help people with the most important transactions one makes in their life regarding one’s home. I feel I make a difference for people and this brings me great satisfaction. Did you have another career prior to real estate? I spent 22 years in the women’s footwear industry. I owned my own firm, designed and manufactured footwear worldwide. I travelled extensively, learned Italian and Spanish, and experienced great success.
SAUNDERS & ASSOCIATES What would you recommend to those trying to sell their home? What are the little things they can do that really go a long way? It is very important to depersonalize the home and de-clutter so that a buyer can see the house and not all of the seller’s furnishings and personal effects obstructing their view. It is always important for the seller to present a clean exterior of the house and a well-defined landscape to create a positive first impression. How important is the role of the real estate brokerage firm that you are associated with? I am fortunate to be associated with Saunders & Associates and their strong marketing team. Working with Saunders, leading in the first quarter of 2014 with an impressive 43% of area sales volume, has enabled me to be more successful in my real estate practice. Saunders is a place where top brokers are energized and fully supported.

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker What is it about you that attracts so many A-list clients? I think personal recommendations and reputation are the way that I get most of my clients; once they meet me, they are comfortable with my work ethic and confident that I know what I am doing to get the job done. What experience/expertise do you bring to the table? Through thick and thin, over the past 30 years, I have been working in this market and have sold oceanfront homes, condominiums and everything else in between. I’ve worked through two major recessions and two active markets, where every sale was a new record price; as a result, I think I see the big picture. What word, or few words best describe you professionally? “Honest” and “experienced.” I always put my sellers and buyers first. It’s not about me, it’s about them and what they want and what is best for them; and that’s my priority. What would you recommend to those trying to sell their homes? What are the little things they can do that really go a long way? I think the best advice is clean,
S O T H E B Y ’ S I N T E R N A T I O N A L R E A LT Y clean and clean! You should minimize and neutralize as best as you can; it is very difficult for buyers to picture themselves in a house when it is not clean and when it’s cluttered with decorative items or memorabilia. The two key words are minimize and neutralize; then buyers can come in and imagine what they could do with the house. This holds true in all price ranges. Experienced buyers go into a house and try to visualize how they can personalize the home. What are the biggest mistakes you see buyers make? I guess the answer to that is that over the years, there have been buyers, especially in the very active market, who wait for prices to come down; I think that is a mistake. If you find something you like, you should pursue it, regardless of the market condition. Certainly the price you pay is influenced by market conditions, but you could be waiting for a very long time. The markets out here are unique; many properties here are part of a second-home luxury market. Prices may come down a little bit in the best locations, in a disastrous market, but not as much as you think.

Gary R DePersia
Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker What would you recommend to those trying to sell their home? What are the little things they can do that really go a long way? Remove all the clutter. People have clutter in their own lives at home and do not want to see it in a house when they are considering buying; also, try not to redo bathrooms or kitchens or tackle some other costly project. Invariably, your potential buyers will want to put their own stamp on any renovations. What are the biggest mistakes sellers make? There are many sellers who cannot bear to leave their homes during a showing. Big mistake. Even though they understand that sellers want to sell the house, and it’s not an imposition for them to be there, buyers invariably spend much more time in a house evaluating it if the seller is gone for the showing. Let your broker do his/her job. Don’t feel compelled to point out every little thing to a perspective buyer. With all the bidding wars out there now, what can prospective buyers do to be best prepared, so they are successful? Ego is such a large part of purchasing a house:
THE CORCORAN GROUP Leave it home. No one seems to enjoy their Hampton real estate experience unless they get a chance to negotiate. Determine what the important issues are when there are competing offers, forget the small stuff and move forward expeditiously to make a deal. Noncontingent deals, where the buyer moves quickly and doesn’t obsess over every little detail in the inspection report, seem to work wonders, with a seller balancing competing offers. Tell us about something new and exciting you’re currently representing. I have an amazing 9,000-square-foot estate, with a tennis court, on 2.5 acres, set way back off Bridgehampton’s Ocean Road, which is being completed. It’s a superlative example of what happens when masterful construction, generous room sizes, intelligent flow and a sensational landscape plan are all combined with inspired interior design. It’s priced at $18.5 million. I don’t think it will be around very long.
This 6,300-plus-or-minus square foot traditional by M&M Luxury Custom Homes is now complete, in a picturesque setting on 1.25 acres in the coveted enclave that is Georgica. All this, set within a sea of verdant lawn behind dense perimeter plantings, js just a short distance to village shopping and ocean beaches. Exclusive. $7.95 million. WEB#39576

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker What do you think it is about you that attracts so many A-list clients? My reputation is built on trust, and my clients know that their best interest and privacy are my priorities. I don’t “stage” myself in order to gain a certain clientele, and I believe that my success should not be measured by a lengthy signature on an email. I measure success by personal happiness, family and referrals from clients. With nearly 20 years of real estate experience and over $100 million in sales in one of the hottest real estate markets, my customers know they have a hard-working, knowledgeable professional who’s going to get them to the end of the negotiation and into a contract. My success stems from having financial savvy, superb negotiating skills, and developing long-term relationships. What are the biggest mistakes you see sellers make? Being too emotionally attached to their property and being unsure of whether or not they are ready to sell. It’s easy to get caught up in the upside of the real estate market, but before committing, they need to really understand the market and know the truth about their property’s value. It’s the broker’s job to educate them, and that’s what I do best.
TO W N & C O U N T RY R E A L E S TAT E What one property are you currently representing that you’re shocked has not been snatched up yet? Why do you think it hasn’t sold? My listing on Further Lane in East Hampton, as it’s an exquisite home, at $29.9 million. With 10 bedrooms, 12 full baths and a beautifully detailed interior that truly feels homey despite being almost 17,000 square feet, it’s unlike any other mansion. As hot as Further Lane has been, people equate it with oceanfront properties, and this home is across the street. What they may not realize is that this five-acre property gives you privacy and picturesque agricultural views over a 45-acre reserve. It’s a knock-out estate. Tell us something about you that most people don’t know or that might surprise us. Despite growing up in New York City, I spent my teenage summers working for a mining company in Nevada and Arizona. I ran heavy equipment and worked night shifts in challenging conditions, and it developed a great work ethic that helped shape me. This could be the reason why I feel most comfortable in a pick up truck rather than any other vehicle. This spectacular custom traditional, designed by renowned architect John B. Murray, is set on almost five acres (2.3 being agricultural reserve) on Further Lane, East Hampton. Featuring 17,000 square feet of living space, 10 bedrooms and 13 1/2 baths (including a separate guest wing), pool, and tennis, this residence has picturesque eastern agricultural views over a 45 acre reserve from many rooms. $29.9M.

I have learned that I must be available to these clients and customers at a moment’s notice. What excites you most about your job? Each day presents opportunities to meet new people.

What word, or few words best describe you professionally? Honesty, 24/7 availability, credibility, work ethic. What would you recommend to those trying to sell their home(s)? Freshen up the interiors, make everything clean and presentable. This can include fresh paint, simple white slipcovers, storing away all personal items. Make sure the lawns are free of debris. A little can go a long way.
S O T H E B Y ’ S I N T E R N A T I O N A L R E A LT Y What professional accomplishment(s) this year (or in your career) are you proudest of (big sale, award, impressive sales volume, etc.)? I am proud to be included regularly among the nation’s top ten real estate brokers, as well as to have earned the top broker position in the Hamptons for Sotheby’s International Realty, and nationwide. What is your favorite way to spend a day (or evening) in (your area)? The best way for me to wind down after a busy day here in the Hamptons is to go sailing, in and around Sag Harbor, Shelter Island, Noyac Bay. Sailing gives me a sense of being away, without being too far. I can always be reached on my boat, even while enjoying the spectacular summer sunsets across the water. In what field other than real estate could you see yourself. . . and why? I could see myself in hotel management. That would have been great. You want an upgrade? Happy to help. You would like a cocktail? I’ll bring one right down to your cabana. . .
This Robert A.M. Stern residence offers 300-plus feet of western waterfront and dock on Mecox Bay. The property includes a sunken all-weather tennis court, heated 42-foot x 20-foot gunite pool, a vegetable garden and caretaker cottage.

Licensed Real Estate Associate Broker Did you have another career prior to real estate? If so, how has that given you an edge in real estate? I have a BFA in fashion illustration and graphic design and spent my 20’s working in the fashion industry in New York City. When I made the decision to become a broker, I was concerned it wouldn’t fulfill my creative side, but I was so wrong. Between the quality of the homes I deal with out here and what is required to assess the customers and clients’ needs, having an eye towards design has certainly played a key part in gaining their confidence in me. Tell us about something new and exciting you’re currently representing. I have two, at opposite ends of the spectrum but equally exciting. One is a 48-lot community in Southampton called Southampton Meadows Estates, with 17 homes left to build out. New construction, four-to-five bedrooms, gunite heated pools on half an acre near the village and beach for under $2 million: This is something that is impossible to find, so these are going really fast. The other is a 15,000–square-foot architectural masterpiece on 5 acres in Watermill, for $13.5 million, which is sheer perfection as far as quality and design. It has multiple entertaining areas, an oversized pool, tennis court, 180 degree ocean views, great
S O T H E B Y ’ S I N T E R N A T I O N A L R E A LT Y chef’s kitchen, home theater and lots of sunlight. You can see it perched high on the hill when you look from the south; it’s quite majestic! What one property are you currently representing hat you’re shocked hasn’t been snatched up yet? Why do you think it hasn’t sold? The property I just referenced is a sleeper. The same house south of the highway would be twice the price, but because it is north, it just does not get the traction, which is a shame. It has everything: the spectacular views, the toys and complete privacy . . . something you don’t always find south of the highway! What’s your favorite way to spend a day (evening) in (your area)? Any day or evening with my daughter, when she gets a chance to come home. I live in Bridgehampton and she lives and works in New York City, but when she is here, our house is filled with friends, good energy and laughter . . . and a little craziness, but I love it!
Poised atop the highest point on the south facing moraine rests Longview, a premier estate with sweeping ocean views. This 15,000 square foot home embraces luxury on every level. Longviewhamptons.com Asking $13.5M.

What word, or few words, best describe you professionally? Competent, honest, knowledgeable and p olished professional.

Matthew S. Breitenbach Licensed Associate Real Estate Agent
What do you think it is about you that attracts so many A-List clients? I like to look at myself as a new breed of real estate agent. A-list clients are A-list for a reason, and if I ran my business like a standard Hamptons agent, I don’t believe I would be working with a lot of the very successful clients I work with. My clients choose to work with me because they get representation that steps out of the sales role and into an advisor/consultant role. I listen to my clients. I creatively explore ways to help them make a smart real estate investment. In this market, you need creative agent representation that is not afraid to step out of the box. What experience do you bring to the table? Real estate is in my veins. My father was a developer and my mother, an agent, so I grew up around and hearing about the business my entire life. After college I felt it was only natural to step into the business myself. I started selling real estate when I was 22 years old and was able to put my first deal together only two weeks after I started. In 10 years in the business, I have been a part of $1 billion worth of sales deals and have consistently been involved in many prominent sales in the Hamptons. I love real estate from the bottom of my heart. Putting deals together is an art form and there is nothing I would rather be doing with my life.
THE CORCORAN GROUP Tell us about something new and exciting you’re currently representing? There is a new modern movement in the Hamptons. I have been hired by a new Hamptons developer, Sagaponack Builders, to exclusively market their new project on Ericas Lane in Sagaponack south. The property truly redefines what it means to live south of the highway in the Hamptons. There is a generation of younger buyers from the finance and real estate industries in New York City that are driving the Hamptons market. These buyers are searching for more modern homes that give off the vibe of staying at a five-star hotel or resort. This house is the perfect example of a house built to cater to this new generation of buyer. I can’t imagine this house being on the market for any extended period of time before selling.
“The evolution of Sagaponack south living, this 8,750-square-foot, three-level modern masterpiece is designed to impress and help one live large. From the Savant smart home technology and 3-D movie theater to the negative-edge pool and second-level outdoor fireplace patio, there is not a space indoors or out that is not impressive.”

Licensed Real Estate Sales Person What do you think it is about you that attracts so many A-list clients? I really believe in the saying “It takes one to know one.” Growing up on the Gold Coast of Long Island, I quickly learned what it means to achieve success. And I think it’s safe to say that with success come the finer things in life. Coming from a family that taught me the value of a dollar, I knew that in order to live among the rich and famous, I had to embody the lifestyle. Living on both the West and East Coasts has enabled me to cultivate relationships with fascinating individuals, from Fortune 500 CEOs to NASCAR drivers. My personal and business network reaches almost every continent as well as local and Supreme Court officials. Like they say, “It’s always good to have friends in high places.” Tell us something about you that most people don’t know. I was born to compete. An athlete at heart, I am a total “tomgirl.” Having an older sister who defines “overachiever,” I knew the bar was going to be set high, intimidatingly high. It was game on and there was no sitting on the bench. If my sister learned how to ride a bike, not only did I learn how to ride it, but how to ride it with no hands.
DOUGLAS ELLIMAN REAL ESTATE In what field other than real estate could you see yourself . . . and why? I naturally have a knack for representing others. I was always the student that asked the questions that I know others wanted to ask. I would be a publicist for A-listers, specifically, entrepreneurs, professional athletes, celebrities and socialites, alike. I have a great ability to manage the public image of a client. Representing clients in real estate transactions enables me to utilize this natural ability to protect their personal interests and financial assets. Did you have another career prior to real estate? If so, how has that given you an edge in real estate? My degree in business development landed me a position with one of the most successful, privately owned hospitality groups in the world straight out of college. It was here that I adopted my relentless work ethic and understanding of economic cycles. Both are required in the world of real estate. The stock market is one of the greatest forecast venues for what to expect in the industry that week.

Zachary Vichinsky, Licensed Real Estate Broker
Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker What is it about you that attracts so many A-list clients? For starters, we have what we call the “power of two.” As brothers, we are beyond a typical team; we share a common vision and are extremely passionate about what we do. This allows us to operate in perfect sync for our clients. Together, our fundamental principal is service. We understand that buying a property in the Hamptons is a unique experience and we take our clients’ time and money very seriously. We take to heart that our best source of new business is referrals from satisfied customers, so we always go above and beyond to exceed expectations. Additionally, we have built our business around a consultative approach. We tailor each experience to the individual client and opportunity. By considering every element surrounding the transaction in question, and subsequently offering valuable assistance along the way, we have developed a concierge style of service. We are only as good as the information and value that we can provide to our clients and customers.
Z a c h a n d C o d y Te a m a t T H E C O R C O R A N G R O U P What experience/expertise do you bring to the table? Most importantly, our business is built around information. Everyone has access to the same information, but what good is it if it’s not relevant, specific and digestible? We spend a lot of time researching and packaging information that will be vital in our clients’ decision process. Second, having grown up in this business, we have gained a lifelong familiarity with the spectrum of real estate development, and subsequently a large portion of our business is “new construction.” We fully understand the development process and stay current on the latest trends and market activity. What word, or few words, best describe you professionally? Focused. We wake up every day to win. We are goal oriented, so we ensure that our time and energy are managed properly. We are driven to be the best service providers for luxury Hamptons real estate, and we understand what it takes to close business, so we work tirelessly to add value where it is needed. 828 Sagg Main is the ideal blend of modern metropolitan chic with a traditional shingle style Hamptons house. Prominently situated on a perfectly rectangular, hedge-lined parcel in Sagaponack South, the latest J. Bialsky Lifestyle Estate is now completed and ready for occupancy.

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker What is it about you that attracts so many A-list clients? Your home is as important to me as my home! What experience/expertise do you bring to the table? What I bring to the table as a broker . . . more than ten years of Hamptons experience with Douglas Elliman, where I have been a top producer, seller, buyer and a landlord myself. Also, I am married to the business since my husband, Michael Shaheen, is a supportive spouse and top real estate agent. We are not a “husband and wife” team but two top agents who bring those skills to a transaction, such as when we worked together on the sale of Wilbur Ross’ Southampton home, or John Paulson’s past home. We also signed a multi-million dollar listing while in Asia on a short honeymoon. What do you like to do in your spare time? Speaking of to the table . . . After work, I love to cook for friends or customers. There are so many wonderful farm stands and fresh fish to make up a pleasing menu in a flash. It is always a nice way to unwind and celebrate the day.
DOUGLAS ELLIMAN REAL ESTATE What’s your favorite way to spend a day (evening) in (your area)? My favorite way to spend a summer evening is on the oceanfront beach enjoying a relaxing dinner and all the stars. What advice would you give someone looking to buy real estate as an investment in your area now? My advice to an investor who wants to buy in the Hamptons right now is, no matter how small or large [the property], you need to sit down and work out a plan, then buy the best location for your budget and remember, “No home is the perfect home until you’ve bought it.”
It’s amazing. Southampton-style, light-filled Lake Agawam waterfront of six bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths with five balconies overlooking Lake Agawam, extending to the ocean; an acre with heated gunite pool-plus-dock; such a rare find in a village home. Web# H17193, and the price is $6.695 million. Maryanne Horwath, 516.617.8938.

What is it about you that attracts so many A-list clients? We pride ourselves on our expertise, local knowledge and world-class service. No matter how much time you may or may not spend in the Hamptons, a local real estate professional has the understanding and know-how that you need to find your ideal home. Each of us has around ten years of real estate experience and local connections. Living and breathing where you live and work brings confidence to your clients and customers. And our service, well, that speaks for itself: We always put our clients’ needs and desires first. Having our buyers find exactly what they want is more important than selling them the most expensive house we can find. What experience/expertise do you bring to the table? We have been in the business for close to 10 years, and within that time, we have experienced both “the highest highs and the lowest lows” of the real estate market. Both of those opposite ends of the spectrum have taught us a tremendous amount about the business and the best way to service our clients. The saying is true that, “You have to be in it to win it,” but in real estate, what it should really say
D O U G L A S E L L I M A N R E A L E S TAT E Th e A t l a n t i c Te a m is, ”You have to be in it at all times of the day and give it everything you’ve got to win it,” because that’s what today’s market demands from an agent in order to be successful. And that is exactly what sets us apart. What excites you most about your job? What is most exciting about our job is simple: the Hamptons. Having both grown up and migrated to the Hamptons, we all have different stories about how we got here. The one thing that is the same throughout our team and among our clients is that we all know that the Hamptons are like no other place on Earth. We are excited to see people fall in love with the area every day. Ask any Hamptons homeowner, from $500,000 to $147,000,000, why they live in the Hamptons, and their answers will undoubtedly mention the light, the air, the sounds, the water and the people. And we get to live that. Every day. Not only that, but we get to help other people live that, too. That truly is the best part of this job.

ACROSS THE POND Bob Balaban’s first travel love is still his truest
ACTOR AND PRODUCER BOB BALABAN has had a hand in some of the greatest movies and TV shows since the 1960s—from 1960s Midnight Cowboy to Moonrise Kingdom and Monuments Men. Since the prompt question for this column is “Where is your favorite place in the world to travel and why?” Balaban says he would have written his postcard from Bridgehampton if he didn’t feel like it was cheating because he’s not really a visitor; when he’s not on location, he makes Bridgehampton his full-time home. Hamptonites and East End visitors can find Balaban riding his bike, eating at Candy Kitchen, sitting around a fire with his friends and shopping at Round Swamp Farm (whose new outpost he is very excited to welcome to his neighborhood!).
Keep it Kemp
I always stay at one of Kit Kemp’s seven amazing Firmdale Hotels. They are all beautiful, fabulous and unique. They’re staffed by friendly and incredibly helpful people. The rooms and suites are immaculate, and massively comfortable. And the food’s always great.
High tea and Maggie Smith
I was the George W. Bush of traveling as a kid. A day trip to Starved Rock [state park], Illinois, was the highlight of my young life until I discovered Julian Fellowes’ homebase at the age of 25. I loved London the minute I laid eyes on it. To this day I remain in awe of its beauty, history, art, culture, theater and people. The better I know it, the more I enjoy it. I produced Gosford Park there over 12 years ago and got to spend months feeling like a native in my favorite city. I ate cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off, for tea. We shot in an actual ancient manor house, Wrotham Park. I still can’t figure out how to pronounce it, but it was an amazing place. Plus, I got to work with [the late] Robert Altman and Maggie Smith. It doesn’t get much better than that.
192 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2014
I go to museums—from famous ones like the Victoria and Albert, to relatively obscure ones like the Charles Dickens Museum— the only surviving house in which Dickens lived. I love walking to the Tate Modern along the far side of the Thames, and eating from those great little kiosks along the way. I love the parks. The zoo. Covent Garden is filled with interesting places to discover, like Neal’s Yard Dairy, one of the best (and certainly most beautiful . . . and odiferous) artisanal cheese shops in the world. Last time I worked in London, I spent every penny of my per diem on great antique silver for my wife at The London Silver Vaults—a series of interconnected, museum-like, enormous underground safes. Everything’s for sale. I hate shopping and even I liked being in this place. I try to visit the Rosetta Stone in the British Museum whenever I can; it’s my single most favorite antiquity. I like eating and hobnobbing at The Wolseley [café] in Picadilly, and visiting my British actor-pals. When they’ll have me.

And some more tips . . .
See Helen Mirren in whatever she’s doing this year. Check out the Chocolate Factory [Theater]. There’s always something interesting going on there. I love going to Baker Street and seeing where Sherlock Holmes lived. The Tower of London is corny and a tourist mecca but I loved taking my daughters there. They also loved going to see Queen Mary’s dollhouse at Windsor Castle. It’s an easy trip. I eat at Wagamama whenever possible, a small chain of sparkling-white, very fresh and delicious, affordable East Asian restaurants with long, skinny tables filled with happy students. Claridge’s has a great classic breakfast. And I love all the funny little off-the-beatentrack restaurants in Chinatown. Tom’s Kitchen at Somerset House is worth splurging on.
Serenity (for a day)
Traveling means I pretty much stay off the phone. I avoid emailing as much as possible and try to smell as many roses as I can. I generally return a better, happier, more relaxed person, with a fresh new perspective on life. For about 24 hours. And then the old rat- racy me sets in.
Monkeys to Maharajah jewels
I can’t travel without:
Comfortable shoes, my favorite J. Crew suit and my all-purpose, waterproof Burberry coat with the zip-in, zip-out lining my kids gave me for Christmas last year.

I went to Bombay, India, in the ’70s to shoot a scene from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The jeweler Kenneth Jay Lane was on our plane and he told me about these little tents with dirt floors behind the Taj Mahal Palace, where you could buy anything from a monkey to a maharajah’s jewels. I went there, brought back three star rubies that cost about $10. I had them appraised last year and had my very own personal Antiques Roadshow triumphant moment. ✦
