Mayor Bloomberg was in the news about two different things last week. The first was about his wealth. During this past year, his net worth zoomed from $22 billion to $27 billion, making him the 13th richest man in the world according to Forbes. The second thing that happened to the Mayor was a judge throwing out his new city law prohibiting the sale of soft drinks larger than 16 oz. a day before it was to go into effect. Reportedly, the Mayor, on hearing of these two things, said “Let them eat cake.” Oh, he didn’t say that? These damned reporters, always getting it wrong. -- DR

After successfully winning over viewers as a judge on America’s Got Talent, South Fork resident Howard Stern is reportedly being groomed by NBC to take Jimmy Fallon’s late-night talk show seat Howard Stern when Fallon eventually takes Jay Leno’s Tonight Show spot. Hamptons regular Liza Minnelli celebrated her birthday all week including touching down at Town Hall in Manhattan, with Alan Cumming in attendance. See photos on page 19. Longtime Hamptonite and comic genius Mel Brooks, who created such memorable films as Blazing Saddles, The Producers, Young Frankenstein, Space Balls and Robin Hood: Men in Tights, will receive the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award in June.

Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger’s “little girl,” Ireland Baldwin, is following in mom’s footsteps. The 6’ 2’ blonde 16-year-old has signed with Two Management and IMG Models. Basinger’s stint with Ford Models as a teen certainly helped launch her career. Hamptons regular Chelsea Clinton hosted TEDxTeen 2013 on Saturday at Scholastic’s global world headquarters in New York. TEDxTeen conferences focus on teens and their power to change the world. Southampton artist and cancer survivor Pat Kochie has won the competition to create the pink apron logo that will be used by the Ellen Hermanson Foundation to promote their summer gala, Heat’s Pink Apron Party, and the 18th Annual Ellen’s Run. Congrats! The competition’s judges were Julie Ratner, Julie Keyes and Joan Kraisky. (Continued on page 20)

March 22, 2013 Page 17 Oh dear, in this second letter, Mr. Aspinall is apparently going to be either fired or humiliated or both. I hope he can handle this.






“Along with the New York Subway System, Hamptons Subway is the only underground transit system in the State of New York.”

The H amptons Subway Newsletter Week of March 22–28, 2013 Riders this past week: 8,327 Rider miles this past week: 91,011 DOWN IN THE TUBE Liza Minnelli was seen riding the subway out of Westhampton Beach heading for Quiogue. Jason Kidd was bouncing a basketball on the subway between Southampton and Water Mill. HAMPTONS SUBWAY BEING SOLD? If you read this newsletter last week, you know that the Hamptons Subway recently received a letter from someone who wants to take over the Hamptons Subway. Our Commissioner Mr. Aspinall was away last week (we don’t know where) but he’s back now and we gave him that letter, to which he said there’s nothing we can do, we have to wait and see what develops further. The letter doesn’t reveal who the person is. Now, in addition, we have received a further letter from this prospective buyer, which is published here.

Dear Hamptons Subway, An assistant to my secretary’s secretary has brought to my attention that I neglected to comment on Commissioner Aspinall’s future with my client’s company once my client acquires ownership of the Hamptons Subway. At this writing (of course this is all subject to board approval), it appears that the position of “Commissioner” will be eliminated. However, my client invites Commissioner Aspinall to submit his recipe portfolio for the illustrious position of Sous Chef, as my client fully intends to add elegant dining cars complete with affordable wine service to the Hamptons Subway fleet. In recognition of Mr. Aspinall’s long years of service and leadership of Hamptons Subway, he will be given top consideration. If Sous Chef is not palatable to Mr. Aspinall, my client hopes that Mr. Aspinall will consider a Senior Attendant position in our pet-friendly car. Dining cars and pet-friendly cars are truly the wave of the future as more residents abandon their automobiles for the safety, comfort and convenience of traveling by tube. Sincerely, Aeso Fable, Esq.

New Year new you!

COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE I am in receipt of this letter purportedly sent to Hampton Subway informing them of his intention to take over Hamptons Subway. Is this a joke? It is not a joke. I know who these people are because I used to work for the Milwaukee Subway System, which they took over. I can’t tell you their name here. They would sue me. And they do have the so-called goods on me when I did work for Milwaukee. It’s complicated. But I can tell you that after they bought Milwaukee (for a song), they came in and, to bring costs down, completely automated it. You bought tokens from a robot in the token booth, the trains were driven by robot motormen, the flagmen were fired and they computerized the signal flag operation, they computerized the main office there and fired everyone. Finally, there was just one person left, me, and when the robots failed, they fired me and went bankrupt and did a second hostile buyout. Do not trust these people.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARCUS FRIENDLY Marcus Friendly, our longtime Surveillance Manager, celebrated his 37th birthday in our company cafeteria surrounded by fellow employees who sang “Happy Birthday.” He said he really appreciated it and he has taken the surveillance tape of his party and edited it down to where everybody is singing “Happy Birthday” and posted it on YouTube and Facebook if you want to see and hear yourself sing to him.

Horse Blanket A grey blanket designed to keep a horse warm went missing in East Hampton last week. Police who came to investigate the incident questioned the horse as to whether he had any information, but his answer was nay. Father Knows Best? A man in East Hampton was arrested for drunk driving after he was pulled over by police. Things went from bad to worse when officers found the man’s son sitting in the backseat of the car…wearing a t-shirt reading “World’s Number 1 Dad.” 

Summer Preview 2013


Marching Madness Several people were reprimanded for lewd behavior at the Montauk St. Patrick’s Day Parade that took place last Sunday. In one instance, a man who had fallen asleep in the bushes near the gazebo was told to move along by police. He complied and walked to another bush, where, you guessed it, he fell back to sleep. Shelter Island Old Man McGumbus—104 years old, former World War II P-59 Mustang Pilot and President of the Shelter Island Bearded Men Association— was arrested last week after he decided to organize a parade on Saturday without the town’s permission. The Old Man, was able to recruit many of the town residents to volunteer for the event, which began at Pickles Juice Street and ended near Bucksach Avenue. For the most part, the parade was a big hit. However, McGumbus, who drove his private and fully functioning M-1 Tank during the parade, was at one point spotted tossing small plastic bottles of Wild Turkey Bourbon into the street (which is illegal) while his girlfriend, Ivanka Ruskeski, a 26-year-old waitress and bartender at the Wet Clam, steered the machine. McGumbus drew the attention of police when he started firing shots from the tank near Coecles Bay, scaring the daylights out of Shelter Island Ferry Boat Captain Henry William Musselbach III. He was arrested and subsequently released after paying a $150 bail.  Roof Fire A small roof fire at a Southampton Italian restaurant broke out last week that was put out immediately by the owner using a fire extinguisher. Volunteer Firefighters Southampton responded to the scene to make sure everything was okay. It was also quite difficult for them to leave because, well, let’s face it, how can you walk out of an Italian restaurant in Southampton without making time to mangia. 

Make sure you reach the summer crowd before they arrive on the East End with Dan’s Summer Preview!

The Factory An Exclusive Tour of the Place Where Summer in the Hamptons Begins By Dan Rattiner


ou would hardly notice the entrance to the Summer Factory. It is three miles up through the woods along the twisty road of Little Noyac Path from Deerfield Road, on the right hand side, a little gravel road with a tiny sign at the entrance that reads “Summer Factory LLC.” It’s been there for many years and most locals know of its existence. But this is the first time anyone from the media has been invited up. Charlie Vanderhoff, the manager, was giving an exclusive interview to Dan’s Papers. It is after a mile down this gravel driveway that the woods gives way to a group of old farm buildings in a clearing. I had read that this was an old 18th century farm purchased by some locals in the early part of the 20th century, soon after the railroad came through and tourists began to come out to the Hamptons for the summer. It’s the place where summer resides when winter comes, and it’s already leaping into action as some of the people there, as I could see, were already bustling around from barn to barn, bring it to life to prepare for the upcoming season. Vanderhoff was out on the front porch of the main farmhouse, smiling at me, as I pulled up in my Tahoe. He’s a big man with blond hair that falls over his eyes. He was wearing a plaid shirt, suspenders and jeans, which were tucked into high boots. He saw me looking at the boots. “What size are you?” he asked. “Ten. Why?” “You’re going to need them. It’s the mud of March and we’ll be going from building to building. But I’ve got a bunch for you to choose

from inside. Just put on what you need. Care for something to drink? I’ve got apple cider.” “That would be great.” Ten minutes later, with me now fully booted, we went out the back door into the fields and toward some of the barns. In the main farmhouse, I had seen rows of employees sitting at tables working the phones. They were making their daily calls to the real estate brokers to get a sense of the upcoming rental season, Vanderhoff told me. It was going to be a doozy. They were also working the celebrities, who would be coming and who would not. Out here in the back, the first thing I saw were rows and rows of white lifeguard stands almost as far as I could see. Teenagers were giving several of them a fresh coat of paint. “They’ve been in one of the barns all winter,” Vanderhoff said. “We’re airing them out now and sprucing them up.” “How many are there?” “All of them? About 90 of them.” The doors to the nearest big barn were open. Inside, we saw more teenagers painting scenery. “Bay Street, Guild Hall, Westhampton Beach Performing Arts, they all get ready here.” “Who are these teenagers?” I asked. “Locals. We get them from the high schools. They get credit for putting in time here.” In the room in the back, I could hear a band rehearsing a John Phillip Sousa march. Vanderhoff said this was the band that would play at the big wooden bandstand on the green in Westhampton Beach on Sundays. Along the far wall of this barn—I confirmed that it had been here the (Continued on next page)

lifeguard stands had been stored until just last week—there was a table about 100 feet long manned by more teenagers who were furiously writing on small tags. They had big baskets on the floor next to their chairs and with each tag marked up they would throw it into one or another of them. “The kids are marking up all the prices of all the merchandise in all the stores for the summer,” Vanderhoff grinned. “How do they know which prices to write in?” “They don’t. They just make up all different prices. It’s when they go to the stores that they match things up.” “They go to the stores?” “Not all of them. But most of them. It’s done during the night of May 28, just before Memorial Day Weekend. Every kid here goes out with a basket, one to a store. Everything is marked up higher by morning.” “It’s quite an operation.” “It certainly is. Practically every kid in the Hamptons participates.” We went out the back and into a field toward one of the other barns. Several polo ponies were being walked around by field hands in this field and you had to watch where you step. Vanderhoff motioned to them. “These five were flown in to East Hampton Airport from Argentina this morning,” Vanderhoff said. “They’re the first ones. We get them through jet lag and the change in the time zone here. But they’ll be ready.” “Where do they stay?”

“Behind this barn is a stable,” Vanderhoff said. We went in to this second barn. To the right of the entrance, there was a heated room separated from the rest of the barn by a glass wall and glass door. Eight older men and women were seated around an oval table. Papers were scattered everywhere. They were talking animatedly. “What’s in here?” I asked. “These are writers,” Vanderhoff said. “Keep your voice down, we don’t want to disturb them.” “What are they doing?” I whispered. “They’re working out some of the summer scenarios.” “Scenarios?” “I was here earlier,” Vanderhoff said. “The one they’re working on today is about a famous Hamptons celebrity couple who, after getting here for Memorial Day, will go into a vicious divorce battle. They will accuse each other of various things. Spying. Infidelity. Bad habits. Mental illness. Wearing wigs. Prostitution services. Stuff like that. It will be very public. But then, just before Labor Day, they have a reconciliation and they’re all lovey dovey again. Everybody is supposed to forget every nasty thing they said about each other.” “And who is this going to be?” Vanderhoff grinned slyly. “You’ll see,” he whispered. We walked past. The entire rest of the barn was filled with racks and racks of clothing—bathing suits,

Where have these been hiding all winter?

evening wear, hats, tuxedoes, it went on and on from front to back of the barn. “Most of this just arrived from our sister factory in Palm Beach,” Vanderhoff said. “We’ve got another barn filled with postcards, suntan lotion, surfboards and volleyball nets and stuff. I don’t need to show you that.” “Palm Beach?” “No. Maui.” Out the back of this barn were rows of greenhouses that Vanderhoff told me were filled with exotic flowers and bushes. They’ve been under cultivation here all winter. We walked past them through the mud and soon were in an open field where I saw the most amazing thing: Seven 200-foot-long luxury yachts up on scaffolding in dry dock. They were all in a row. “This is what?” I asked. “These are those giant (Continued on page 34)

A memorial to David Glowczenski near Our Lady of the Hamptons Regional Catholic School in Southampton

Glowczenski Ruling Court Decision About Who Was Responsible for a Southampton Man’s Death By Dan Rattiner


ine years and one month after a mentally ill man out-of-control on a Southampton street died after being shot with a Taser, pepper sprayed and fought with by numerous police officers before they subdued and handcuffed him, a judge has ruled that neither Brian Platt, one of the police officers, nor Taser International, the maker of the Tasers used in the incident, bears responsibility in the death of the man. The judge also dismissed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Village of Southampton, but claims against other individuals, the Village of Southampton Police Department and Suffolk County will continue. I don’t ever recall a case of this nature in a single courtroom taking this long in New York. But this one has. Federal magistrate judge William D. Wall, of the Eastern District of New York, wrote in his summary, “There is no expert evidence that anything that Platt did or did not do caused Mr. Glowczenski’s death.” He also wrote “It would not have been clear to a reasonable officer on February 4, 2004, that using a Taser on an emotionally troubled individual—all of the disputed issues of fact not withstanding—when ordered to do so by a superior officer was unlawful. Nor would a reasonable officer have believed that multiple applications of the Taser were unlawful.” David Glowczenski was a large man, 35 years old, who lived with his parents on Layton Avenue in Southampton. He suffered from schizophrenia, which sometimes would cause him to become delusional and frightened, and sometimes aggressive and out of control. He

had, in the past, taken medicine to control this. He’d also had prior episodes when the police were called. On this day, February 4, 2004, it was reported that he was in the house when he overheard his mother talking to his two brothers about taking him to the Eastern Long Island Hospital in Greenport because of how he was acting. He started acting even more upset and soon his mother called 911. Several further calls to 911 took place after that.

I don’t ever recall a case of this nature in a single courtroom taking this long in New York. But this one has. After one of these calls, Glowczenski took a bible and was going to go to church to pray, his sister said. He walked out the door and down Layton Avenue to North Main Street where, in front of the Our Lady of the Hamptons School, by the railroad station, several police cars arrived one at a time and four police officers got out, found him screaming, yelling and behaving wildly and attempted to calm him down. He failed to calm down. Officers then attempted to subdue him, during which time a female police officer fell to the ground. Eventually, the complaint stated, after being shocked with a Taser and pepper sprayed, he was subdued, on his stomach with his hands cuffed behind his back, zip ties on his ankles, lying on the ground. At this point, paramedics were called, and when they arrived they founcd Glowczenski in cardiac arrest, not breathing. He was

transported to Southampton Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11:20 a.m. His bible was found at the scene. As happens whenever there is a death during a police incident in this county, it’s investigated by the Suffolk County Police Department. They said the village police had used appropriate force to subdue a man who was thrashing out of control. The Suffolk police report also said they did not believe Glowczenski was kicked or beaten. On September 20, 2004, a press conference was held in Garden City at which time a lawyer for the Glowczenski family announced there would be a lawsuit against the Village of Southampton, its Police Department, Suffolk County, various police officers, EMTs, medical examiners and others. Also in the suit was Taser International of Scottsdale, Arizona. At this press conference, reported by The New York Times the next day, attorney Fredrick Brewington showed photographs of Glowczenski’s bruised and cut face. Glowczenski’s sister Jean Griffin spoke, described what happened to her brother and called it murder. “He had no weapon and had committed no crime,” she said. Much was also made of the autopsy done on Glowczenski’s body by Suffolk County Deputy Medical Examiner James Wilson, M.D. His report stated that Glowczenski had died of “acute exhaustive mania due to schizophrenia.” The family then ordered a second autopsy, performed by Dr. Lone Thanning, the Rockland County Medical Examiner, who said she saw “extensive evidence of (Continued on next page)

excess force” and that she thought he had died of a combination of the blunt force injuries, pepper spray and repeated Taser shots (she found nine). She also said that Glowczenski had been handcuffed and had his ankles shackled, and that a large man kneeled on his back. Thanning also reported damage to Glowczenski’s testicles and face. Much was made by the press after the

announcement of death by “acute exhaustive mania,” or excited delirium, which some experts consider extremely rare. Suffolk County Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Charles Wetli later discussed “excited delirium,” saying that he has cited it as a cause of death “once or twice a year” in other police-encounter deaths he oversees. He intends to continue writing and lecturing about it, and said he first heard the phrase used by a psychiatrist. (Opinions by Witli and Thanning were expressly excluded by the court.) A medical examiner in Michigan, Dr. Werner Spitz, who was not retained by either side, had this to say about many other deaths attributed to excited delirum. “They die because they cannot breathe,”

Stacy Dermont

The case now continues in order to determine if there is negligence. Hopefully this will not take another nine years.

David Glowczenski remembered

he said in an interview with Newsday, adding, “Why doesn’t [excited delirium] happen when somebody is not restrained? You know that that means? It means it was a coincidence. I do not believe in coincidences.” You can draw your own conclusions from this tragedy. Here are mine. The police have a tough, tough job to do. We cannot thank them enough for what they do. Sometimes they are confronted by difficult decisions in which they have to make quick judgments. The judge, I think correctly, ruled that in the absence of clear evidence about the amount of resistance or aggression Glowczenski showed, the police did not go beyond the bounds of what they were trained to do. This case now continues, in order to determine if there is negligence, and if so, how much. Hopefully, this will not take another nine years. Before there were Tasers, the police would throw grappling nets over people who were out of control. I know Tasers are high tech. And I know that as part of police training, officers are allowed to ask to be shot with a Taser to be shown what it feels like. Where are the grappling nets?

The Game Changes With Global Warming and Rising Seas, Stronger Measures Are Needed By Dan Rattiner


f you fly over eastern Long Island, you will see how our ocean beaches are wide in some places and narrow in others. The situation changes from year to year, and what is narrow today might be wider next year, largely depending upon what happens just offshore, which is where the sand is when not on our beaches. When there are sandbars out there, we often have wide beaches ashore. When there are gullies out there, our beaches often lose sand at an alarming rate as the surf carries it out to fill the holes. There’s nothing we can do about these sandbars and holes. They come and go. We also cannot do anything about the littoral drift, which daily moves sand from east to west, from the Montauk Lighthouse west to Fire Island and then to the Rockaways and from there out

into the gut of New York Harbor. There is also nothing we can do to prevent the sand getting washed out in the wintertime—some people get very alarmed when they first see it—and brought back up in the summer, a movement of sand in the hundreds of millions of tons twice a year. These are the usual rules that account for the condition our beaches—our award-winning sands—day-to-day and year-to-year. And over the years, this newspaper has long fought to have things left alone so nature can take its course. We no longer live in usual times, however. It’s quite clear, now that global warming and the melting of our polar ice caps are proceeding relentlessly on, that what’s unusual today is going to be usual tomorrow. Therefore, we should take a hard look at what our current rules are and what they ought to be. Perhaps

we should now allow certain kinds of artificial hardened structures along the beaches. You may not think we have any great stretch with artificial hardened structures at the beach. We have a few jetties here and there, built privately on the ocean, one at Ditch Plains (by Sam Cox) and another at Georgica (by Juan Trippe). Both pre-date zoning. Both could not be built with the rules we have in place today, which prevent not only jetties but also stone walls and revetments. The theory is they not only change what’s pristine and natural, and little good comes from them anyway because the sand piles up on the eastern side of a jetty and gets scoured away on the other side. As for walls and revetments, they in addition block beach access. It’s also felt that in the long run, all hard structures just get torn away, although so far that does not seem to be true. In any case, it’s not (Continued on next page)

The Big Duck in Flanders to Add Museum By nicholas chowske


ust about anyone who’s been through Flanders knows about the Big Duck—a 20-foot-tall Peking duck is hard to miss. But many people don’t know about the lost Long Island industry that the Big Duck represents: duck ranching. With the help of a grant from Suffolk County, that may soon change. “We’re really planning something kind of simple here,” said Southampton Town Historian Zach Studenroth, who is spearheading the proposal. He plans to use the money to convert the old barn behind the Big Duck into a small museum cataloguing the history of duck ranching on Long Island. “It’s mostly a summer

thing, so we’re not picturing heat or water,” he said. “It’s just about running electricity out there for the exhibits we create.” The grant would come from the Suffolk County Office of Film and Cultural Affairs. “They have a competitive grant program, somewhere in the range of $5,000 to $10,000, so this is not a big ticket item,” Studenroth said. “But with that kind of money, we could generate a pretty nice exhibit.” The Friends of the Big Duck, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving the Big Duck’s history, is already collecting pieces for the exhibit. “The Friends are very excited about this project moving forward,” said Fran Cobb, president of the Friends of the Big Duck. “We

have quite a large collection of artifacts which will be in the museum, and hopefully it will be done by the end of the summer.” The Big Duck itself, which is owned by Suffolk County, was originally built by a Riverhead duck farmer in 1930 as a stand from which to sell his goods. It has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1997, primarily because of its impact on commercial architecture. “We had it put on the National Register when it was located at Sears Bellows County Park down the road,” said Richard Martin, Director of Historic Services for the Suffolk County Parks Department. “They were willing to put it on, even though it wasn’t at its original location, because it was considered (Continued on page 30)

Beaches (Cont’d from page 25)

We must protect our beautiful beaches now










true that the Hamptons are free from hard structures today. There are—and you can see the tips of them on Google Earth—a series of 15 jetties spaced a quarter-mile apart between the foot of Beach Lane in Westhampton Beach and the eastern border of the Village of West Hampton Dunes three miles to the west. Along this three-and-a-half-mile stretch, there is never an erosion problem. The beach has remained several hundred yards wide for two generations, and shows no sign of narrowing. Also, at a quarter mile apart, the jetties do not block public access. There’s also another part of the ocean beach that has a hard structure. This is a series of 200foot long, 60-foot-high corrugated panels that were bolted together and driven into the seabed parallel to Dune Road for half a mile along the ocean in the Village of West Hampton Dunes. These panels—used in building coffer dams for the repair of large ships—were put in during the 1990s by the Army Corps of Engineers. They were driven 30 feet into the seabed. They rise up 30 feet above the waterline. And you don’t know they’re there because the Army Corps covered them entirely with sand on both sides, essentially making an enormous quarter-milelong sand dune with a steel spine. It plugged up a huge breach that appeared in that part of Dune Road in the 1980s. Furthermore, if any sand is lost, the Army Corps is contracted to replenish it every couple of years until 2027. And again, it does not prevent public access to the beach. This year, because of recent storms, we are experiencing an alarming amount of erosion along our beaches. In Montauk last November, a wall of more than a dozen giant cesspool rings was placed on the beach in front of the Royal Atlantic and Ocean Beach motels to keep them from falling into the sea. These ugly rings were soon covered up with sand, thus creating a hump of sand protecting those motels. They’re likely not to be left there, though. Hard structures are against the law on the beach. They are only supposed to be there temporarily. Meanwhile, in Sagaponack, another erosion control project is underway. A group of approximately 140 homeowners along a sixmile stretch from the East Hampton Town border at Town Line Road the Southampton

Village border at Flying Point Road has formed a special taxing district and voted to place approximately two million cubic yards of sand onto the beach at their own expense. This sand is to be pumped in from the ocean and spread evenly in front of these homes at a cost of about $25 million. It may be legal. But will it work? Anyone who goes down to the beach with any regularity knows that if the ocean wishes to tear out 10 million tons in a few days during a big storm, which it surely did during Superstorm Sandy, it can do so. Just naturally, during the fall, the ocean pulls out about that much sand in every four-mile stretch, only to bring it back in the spring for the summer season. It seems to me, and I’m no expert about this, that if the ocean goes through a violent spell, all this sand will be torn out and then brought back sprinkled along to the west, to Water Mill, Wickapogue and Southampton Town, to people who have not paid for it. We need jetties to stabilize this new sand. It’s a good idea bringing it in. But it will not stay, in my opinion, unless there are jetties under it. This winter, my wife and I spent a week down in Miami Beach. Neither of us had been there for 30 years. Back then, the sand along Miami Beach’s shoreline had been all swept out. The sea was threatening the hotels. Today, that five-mile stretch is a broad beach. The government came in, put down stone jetties for strength, then topped it all with sand. The beaches are restored today and look as beautiful as ever. I believe what ought to be done to protect our beaches during the next 50 years is to build a group of stone jetties sticking out into the ocean from Montauk to Fire Island and then cover them with sand and the oceanfront homeowners should pay for it. As a matter of fact, when the Army Corps began building them in Westhampton Beach in the 1960s, it was intended that the taxpayers were to pay for it, but it would be ALL the taxpayers, 99.9% of whom did not own oceanfront homes. People protested and demonstrated to have it stopped. Only 15 jetties were built. No ice caps were melting then. No global warming was underway then. Today is a different story. We have to cope with it, or we will lose our beaches and the homes behind them.

hen people outside of New York discover that I live in the Hamptons, one of the first things they always ask is if I ever see or know any celebrities. I never really know how to answer that question because I’m not really sure what constitutes being a celebrity. Where is the line in the East End sand drawn? I suppose it’s sort of like the response from United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Potter Stewart (January 23, 1915 – December 7, 1985), who in his opinion from an obscenity case wrote that “hard-core pornography” was hard to define, but that “I know it when I see it.” The dictionary describes celebrity as having a big name. However, that doesn’t mean that if your last name is 14 letters long, then you are a celebrity. And just because a guy from Quogue can eat 385 Oreos in four minutes doesn’t make him a celebrity, either. We all know and recognize certain people as celebrities. They are the names we see in print and media on a regular basis. They may also be known as a “Fan Favorite, Heartthrob, Hero, Idol, Dignitary, Business Baron, Royalty, Big Shot, Politician, Bigwig, Magnate, Mogul” or “Captain of Industry.” Last Friday night, over drinks and wings with a few friends, we decided to challenge ourselves when it came to our knowledge of those celebrities with ties to the Hamptons. The Hamptons Celebrity Name Challenge, as we called it, is very simple: Just like the alphabet game, you start with the letter A and then go around the table, with each person naming a celebrity with known ties to the Hamptons whose last name begins with that letter. After a successful name is given it moves to the next person, who then has to give a name beginning with the next letter. Unless it was obvious, as a way to check the validity of the name and their association with the Hamptons the player had five minutes to prove it via the power of the internet. This was done using an iPad located in the center of the table. Each time a participant could not prove their celebrity offering had ties to the Hamptons, they had to put $10 into the pot and they were out of the game to boot. However, to make it a bit easier, each player also was entitled to three free passes, where for a $5 contribution, they could skip a letter or turn. The last person left standing got to keep the money. The game started out with Alan Alda, Ed Burns, Katie Couric, Donnie Deutsch, Mica Etergun, Michael J. Fox, Richard Gere, Hearst Family, Carl Ichan, Billy Joel, Donna Karan and so on. The second time through the alphabet proved to be even more difficult and the third time was really tough. If you decide to play the game competitively, just make sure the people you are playing against don’t have their iPhone keyed into, where they could unfairly surf for celebrity names while on a bathroom break. And they thought I had a weak bladder. How well do you know your East End celebrities? If you can make it all the way through the alphabet—with no free passes— you are a celebrity in my book.

roadside architecture, and the building is more important than the site.” The Big Duck Ranch, which is owned by the Town of Southampton, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2008. Converting the old outbuildings on the farm would ensure that there would be money to repair and maintain them in the future. “The fact that three of the accessory buildings were left standing is what enabled the town to meet that responsibility of getting the property listed on the National Register,” Studenroth said. “My feeling was that as long as it stands there without any use, it’s not going to get repaired,

and it’s not going to be regarded as something worth investing money in.” Most recently, the small stucco building by the road was renovated and converted into a restroom for visitors. Now, Studenroth would like to focus on the brooder barn behind the Big Duck, which has fallen into disrepair. “Ultimately, any old wooden building left to its own devices is not going to stand forever,” he said. “If we could build an exhibit that would talk about duck farming originating in Southampton, spreading to adjoining towns and becoming the Long Island industry that it did, that alone would justify an expenditure of money to stabilize and

restore that building.” Martin has been involved with the Big Duck since it was donated to the county in 1987, and he would like to see it represent more than just a quirky building style. “It’s a good idea to give a sense of all of the duck business on Long Island. We have a few bits and pieces here, but not a comprehensive view of it all,” he said. Duck ranching was one of the biggest industries on Long Island until the 1960s. “In the late ’50s, there were about 90 duck farms, spread out along the waterways,” Martin said. As the county transitioned to a more suburban landscape, the land became more valuable for homes than farms. “The farmland’s always getting sold off for development—it’s the classic Long Island story,” Martin said. Preserving the Big Duck Ranch would help people see that story. “It’s really an historic artifact of an activity and a life of farming on Long Island that essentially doesn’t exist anymore.” For more information, visit

New Sport Comes to the East End: Pickleball! By alex goetzfried


ickleball fever is sweeping the nation! Okay, maybe it’s not quite “sweeping” yet, but Pickleball is picking up steam in Montauk with its one-year anniversary at the Montauk Playhouse quickly approaching. Pickleball is a game played on a badminton court. The net is lowered to 36” from the ground. The ball is perforated and plastic, similar to a Wiffle Ball, and the racket is solid and wooden, similar to a Ping-Pong paddle. “It’s really fun,” Alison Rigby said. Rigby received her Bachelor of Science in Physical Education from Cortland where she learned how to play Pickleball. She is now the Assistant Recreation Leader for the Town of East Hampton. She runs the Pickleball program at the Montauk Playhouse gymnasium. Montauk resident Pat Shea played the game in California and brought the idea to Rigby to have the game available at the Playhouse.

The USAPA advises players to always wear proper sneakers made for court sports, and also to make sure players are aware of their surroundings and possible obstacles, and never play Pickleball on a wet court. Pickleball specific stretches, warm-ups, cool downs and injury prevention techniques are available on But it’s not just a safety site; there are plenty of tips for improving your Pickleball game, from winning strategies to serve techniques. May 1 marks the one-year anniversary of Pickleball in Montauk and the Playhouse will continue to keep it on the calendar. Like many other events on the East End, Pickleball really picks up in April

and May and this summer could be its biggest yet. Rigby said they have a huge turnout, with 30 people signing up, and that number increases as more summer people come out. It’s co-ed, and younger guys in their 20s are starting to play regularly. Aspiring Pickleballers can play for free at the Montauk Playhouse on Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and Fridays 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. As Pickleball gains popularity, Rigby is working on setting up tournaments as the high season arrives. “It’d be great,” Rigby said, “its hard out in here in February and March, but maybe over the summer.” For more info, visit

Endless Hot Water! Pickleball Fever: catch it!

Legend has it that Pickleball was invented as a backyard game by Congressman Joel Pritchard in 1965. His children were bored and wanted to play badminton. They had a Wiffle Ball, (but no shuttlecock), Ping-Pong paddles, and a badminton net. The sport allegedly got its name from the family dog Pickles, who would chase the ball after each play. From these humble beginnings would grow an organized sport with national and international governing bodies. The sport gained popularity with seniors in California and Florida but has since expanded. Pickleball is accessible to people of all ages, from children to seniors, and recently it’s become very competitive. Pickleball starts with an underhanded serve to the opposite box like tennis. It follows rally scoring—you can only score on a serve. The box closest to the net is a no-volley zone and players must allow the ball to bounce before hitting it in this area only. The no-volley zone is known as the “kitchen table.” And, of course, you must win by two. As with any sport, Pickleball can be physically demanding and caution is advised. The USA Pickleball Association (USAPA) has a section on their website called the training room.

A Modest East End Proposal By David lion Rattiner

I’m encouraged by the news that the Town of East Hampton is considering making it illegal for people to pull up to a beach without a parking sticker. Yes, you read that correctly. If the lot is full, then just driving up to the beach to drop somebody off, or even coming by to check out the ocean, would not be allowed if you don’t have a sticker.



The Town should make a new rule that nobody is allowed to drive or park near Main Street unless they can prove they are a resident. I’m totally in favor of this and think the Town should move forward. It’s time that we stopped letting people come to our beaches who are not residents. The Town has proposed the new beach law seemingly with the logic that people who get dropped off at the beach and are not residents are generally up to no good and contribute to overcrowding. They even, gasp, drink alcohol at the beach. Sometimes, gulp, they even bring dogs. We have to fight this craziness. I think the Town should take this a step

further and not just enforce this at the beach, but also on Main Street in East Hampton. The Town should make a new rule that nobody is allowed to drive or park near Main Street in East Hampton unless they can prove that they are a tax-paying resident. Why should just anybody be allowed to drive along these special roads, let alone park on them? I think it’s high time we stop the lunacy of allowing anybody to drive where they want to. The fact of the matter is that people from out of town don’t even really shop that much, and all they do is crowd up the restaurants and prevent the real residents from enjoying a table. If they want to be able to drive up and down Main Street or even Newtown Lane, the new law should dictate that they have to go into Town Hall and present themselves in person, fill out an official form, state how often they expect to be driving around Main Street and at what times, and then get a special white sticker to be placed in the back windshield of their car.  The same should be true for walking up and down Main Street. Police should be checking people at random, patting them down and making sure they have an official license to walk through the Town of East Hampton. If you aren’t a resident, you will have to present a walking license issued by the Town of East Hampton. This license can be worn around your neck, in full view. This will solve many problems for the Town of East Hampton. The outrageous overcrowding that we see in the summer will go down

dramatically. There will be fewer people everywhere you look, thus creating a much safer and more wonderful place to be. Speaking of public safety, the time has come to bring metal detectors and security officers to the beach. I’d be in favor of waiting on line and running my belongings through an x-ray machine just like we do at an airport. With all of these high-profile visitors coming to our beaches, we have to keep them safe from a crazy person who might want to harm them. We must start recognizing the dangers of outsiders. We can’t just keep letting people do as they please with the excuse that they are just “enjoying the Hamptons.” We must, through any means necessary, keep out these criminals.  Read David’s blog every day at

This Week’s Cover Artist: Frank Latorre It was expressive, colorful, and it had movement.

By Marion Wolberg-Weiss


t’s not often that someone can be called a true “Renaissance Man,” but this week’s cover artist is one of them. Frank Latorre is not only a painter but an award-winning blues musician and chef, too. His artistic subjects are just as diverse and include such images as figures (portraits and mermaids), beach scenes, abstractions and trompe-l’oeil. Latorre’s materials are equally interesting, like glass, air brush and canvas. Is your cover image, “Siren of the Sea,” part of a series? Yes. I usually do 3-6 pieces in a certain series. I once did several butterfly works, and I was known as “The Butterfly Painter.” You’ve done a lot of different subjects, using varied materials through the years. What were some of them? I first did air brush art; I was a glass artist. These works were in hotels and fine homes. I did this for 20 years. Then I did paintings, mostly trompe-l’oeil for walls in restaurants and homes. Then I went from walls to canvas, which is what I’ve been doing for 10 years. This includes my mermaid series, water scenes and Long Island beaches on the South Shore. What about your style, has it been as varied? I started out with super Photorealism. I was obsessed with making an image like a

photograph, But people would walk right by the works. They didn’t look at them. After that, I changed my style. I went to a looser one. I started doing abstraction. Did you find it difficult to change styles like that with no training? Abstraction seemed so simple, but it wasn’t. I didn’t understand it. I am self-taught so I started going to museums to see abstract work. I realized that abstraction was like the Wild West; it wasn’t regimented. It was loose and free. That Wild West simile is really good. So you finally understood abstraction? Yes. I realized it was getting a proper balance of color usage. What drew you to abstraction?

You are also a Blues musician, playing the harmonica. In fact, you won first place for Long Island at the International Blues Challenge and represented Long Island in Memphis at the same competition. How is the Blues like your art? It’s also intense, expressive and relentless. When I play solo on the harmonica, I feel the music is color. The sound in my head is color. When painting, I hear the guitar or other instruments playing. You are a chef as well? I have a culinary degree, I cook for friends and other people. I’m working on marketing Italian and BBQ sauces. I play music at night, paint during the day and cook when I have time. I also teach art to some private pupils. How do you reconcile all these activities? They are all part of the creative process. How do you see art, particularly? How important is it to you? People don’t throw art away. It will resurface. Art is here as long as people are here. It’s a cherished resource. When people buy my art, it’s like having a piece of me all over the place. See Frank Latorre’s art on his website,

The Highs and Lows of East End Dining I’ve long said I could happily travel across the country stopping only at Chipotle Mexican Grills and Panera Breads for meals. Okay, I haven’t actually said that—because it would be such a tedious thing to say—my point is that we Americans no longer— blessedly—have to rely on McBurgerQueens to survive long trips. I couldn’t be happier lunching on husbanddelivered Panera fare every Tuesday, when our staff has no time to go out…or could I? Not along ago I ate at Pierre’s in Bridgehampton. Despite the fact that it was a business lunch, I ordered the always-messy French Onion Soup. It’s so cheesy-good. Then I had what I always have at Pierre’s for lunch—the Salade de Tomate a la Mangue et Avocat. Obviously Pierre has access to the best tomatoes, avocados and mangos available. The next day I was passing through Bridgehampton on an errand and popped into Panera to pick up lunch. I ordered my usual “Pick Two”—half a Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich and soup. I chose their French Onion. Wow, it was not as good as I remembered it. In marked contrast to Pierre’s authentic stock, Panera’s was stridently salty and I just don’t think that it was made by roasting, and then simmering, beef bones for

Feel the Excitement of Volunteering at an Open! By darren demaille

This year the U.S. Women’s Open will be contested at Sebonack Golf Club, from June 24 to 30. Nestled on the Peconic Bay, this course collaboration between Jack Nicklaus and Tom Doak is a classic amongst the world’s greatest golf courses. This will be the first Open Championship hosted at Sebonack, and the first U.S. Women’s Open ever held on Long Island. Volunteers Are Needed For golf enthusiasts, volunteering at an Open is a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the game and to give something back to the sport. “Volunteers are critical to golf tournaments,” says Andy Newman, the Hole Captain for The Bridge for the upcoming U.S. Women’s Open. “They not only help spectators, but are important to keeping the tournament running smoothly for the players. I was surprised at how rewarding an experience it was [Newman volunteered at the 2010 MidAmateur tournament at Atlantic Golf Club], and I am looking forward to volunteering at this year’s U.S. Women’s Open.” If you’re looking for an opportunity to be inside the ropes, Marshalling is a great option for you. As a Marshal you will be asked to assist with managing the movement of both players

and gallery. You will be assigned a specific hole and are likely have the opportunity to work from various vantage points along that hole throughout the week. You are asked to work at least four to five days over the course of the championship. This is divided into approximately four- or five-hour shifts or about 16 to 20 hours. For those who are interested, the USGA will make every effort to accommodate your scheduling requests and preference for working with other volunteers you may know. Volunteer Orientation will be at Westhampton Beach High School on June 1 and 2. The Volunteer Party will be held at Sebonack on June 22, from 4 to 8 p.m. The USGA also seeks the assistance of Junior Volunteers ages 13 to 17 years old. They will be looking for assistance with the Standard Bearers Committee. This is a great opportunity for juniors to walk with the players during competition. Your $125 volunteer package includes two golf shirts, one windbreaker, one hat or visor, a USGA water bottle and your credential, which grants you access into the championship all seven days. If you are interested in joining the Marshal team, please visit and register, making sure to select your club name (The Bridge) as your committee choice or contact Brent Bonner at bbonner@ Challenges Facing Players The key for the eventual champion will be to

navigate the undulating greens. Players familiar with Sebonack say the greens require so much local knowledge that tour pros would be better off using one of the club’s caddies who are well-versed by their iconic caddiemaster Jason Bunge. In addition, players will need to hit these tricky greens with their approaches from the fairway. It will be a difficult task for those who are hitting long irons or hybrids. It is challenging enough to hold some of the greens with a pitching wedge, let alone a longer club. It would not be surprising if the leader board on Sunday is filled with some of the tour’s longest drivers of the golf ball because of this. Another challenge the players will face will be the wind. Since Sebonack sits on the Peconic Bay, there is very little protection from the wind. This will cause havoc, as players will be trying to keep the ball low, yet manage to have their approach shots hold these devilish greens. We have to wait and see what weather the players will face and the course setup the USGA decides to use.

chalk on the end along one wall, yellow vests on racks on a second wall and light tan traffic police uniforms lined up on it. There were no people in this room. “No explanation necessary,” Vanderhoff said. “When the kids come home from college, they come straight here to suit up.” The third room was a surprise. It was a conference room. There was a big mahogany table with a teleconferencing phone in the center, a dozen plush chairs all around and along one wall, a rolling cart with lots of liquor bottles on it. “It’s for when our board of directors meet,” Vanderhoff said. “They meet monthly in the winter, weekly in the summer.” He paused. “Wall Street people, mostly.” “Where do you work?” I asked. “I have an office upstairs. A secretary, computers, printer, fax machine, files. The usual.” Vanderhoff looked at his watch. “I think we have to wind this up,” he said. “I really appreciate this,” I said. “And I know our readers will too.” “Well, just hold off publishing it until June. I think it might be more appreciated then.” “Okay.” He walked me to the door. “Just a few things we missed,” he said. “But I can tell you about some of them. We have a little chef cooking school in one of our buildings. Some indoor tennis courts in another. And in there we also have a whole exercise studio for people who want to get in shape

before the summer. There’s a dietician in there, too.” “For the summer people?” “Oh no, the locals. It’s free. And then one more thing,” he said, and he opened a door off the hall that opened to a room filled with heavy coats, wool caps, scarves and mittens. “A lot of the locals just started swinging by here and leaving off all their heavy coats. Began last week when the weather broke. We’ll be full up by April 15, I’m sure.” “Why do they bring them here?” “I don’t know. But what they say is, after Superstorm Sandy and the five winter nor’easters and other storms we’ve gone through, they’re just leaving them here for luck. They plan to pick them up again next fall. It’s a first. Nobody’s ever done this before here.” “I think it’s a testament to what you do,” I said. “You can do so much.” “I didn’t tell you. We’re being funded to create a computer research center that might be able to alter the weather patterns over the Hamptons.” “Really?” “The Board has told me about it. We’ve got one more unused barn in the back and a whole slew of chicken houses. It’s about to be some kind of public offering.” We shook hands goodbye. I walked out to my Tahoe and was all the way down Little Noyac Path before I realized that I was still wearing the heavy boots Vanderhoff had fitted me with. And he still had my sneakers. Well, maybe one of the beach boys would be my size.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to be inside the ropes at one of the most exciting venues in all of championship golf. The best female players in the world will be there to test their game and you have the opportunity to have a front row ticket.

There were tables with cardboard boxes and people packing them up. “Each town a different color,” Vanderhoff said proudly. “We see to it they don’t match.” A second room had bicycles and sticks with

NEWS BRIEFS Compiled by kelly laffey

EAST END: The NCAA tournament is underway! While local favorite Stony Brook University didn’t make it to the Big Dance, there are a few area connections to make things interesting for the next couple of weeks. The only Long Island team to be named on Selection Sunday was LIU Brooklyn. The Blackbirds faced the James Madison Dukes in a play-in First Round game on Wednesday, with the winner going into the Second Round as a No. 16 seed in the East, facing No. 1 Indiana. Other New York teams will also provide ample entertainment vs. NCAA powerhouses. No. 15 Albany will play No. 2 Duke and No. 15 Iona will play No. 2 Ohio State, both on Friday. In other East End news, after Louisville annihilated Villanova in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament (74–55) last Friday, they hung out with—drum roll—Hamptons regular Bill Clinton. He stopped by the team’s locker room after their win and snapped a few entertaining shots. Clinton has been friends with Louisville coach Rick Pitino since the ’90s, but his appearance was a complete surprise to the team—not that they were shy in their picture-taking. Could his presence have fueled their eventual 2013 Big East Championship? Hamptonites may be better going with the Clinton/Louisville connection and picking the No. 1 seeded Cardinals instead of hoping for an upset from our geographical tie-ins. And, in honor of Dan’s Papers coming out on Friday, March 22, our editors’ pick for the most exciting game of the day: No. 8 North Carolina vs. No. 9 Villanova. We smell Tar Heel blue!

EAST END: Thanks to the efforts of New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr., Montauk Highway will be repaved this year. The New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) has agreed to amend the State Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) to include reconstruction of a 10-mile stretch of Montauk Highway, from CR 39 to Stephen Hands Path. The proposed construction would cost approximately $12.53 million. State DOT already had scheduled the reconstruction of a 2.3-mile stretch of the highway from SR 114 to Stephen Hands Path for the spring of this year. The project would be funded by federal and state funds. After a comment period, the project will be included in the TIP and detailed design work will begin. The construction of the segment between SR 114 and Stephen Hands Path will begin this spring and the remaining work from Stephen Hands Path to CR 39 will commence after Labor Day. “Congressman Bishop, State Senator Ken LaValle, County Legislator Jay Schneiderman, and every South Fork Supervisor and Mayor joined with me to request the reconstruction of Montauk Highway,” commented Thiele, who lauded the importance of Montauk Highway as the only major artery on the East End. “Not only did the Governor and Commissioner Joan McDonald respond favorably, they were quick in responding so that this project can get underway in 2013. I thank them for their fast action.” People are welcome to comment on the proposed project from now until March 22, Comments should be submitted to: New York Metropolitan Transportation Council Attn: David Drits 199 Water Street, 22nd Floor New York, New York 10038 Email: 212-383-7268

Legislator Schneiderman had been considering running instead for his prior post as East Hampton Town Supervisor. “...East Hampton is a special place, and the idea of bringing our town together as Supervisor is very appealing to me,” said Schniederman. “However, there is still more work I feel I need to do in the Legislature…County Executive Bellone has asked me to work closely with him to focus on budget mitigation that puts Suffolk County on a more sustainable path while protecting critical services.” Schneiderman hopes to spend the next term in office focusing on improving transportation options on the East End, the future of the open space program, protecting farms and recovering from Sandy and fortifying shorelines. He will be running for his last term as Legislator because of County term limits. Schneiderman has said he would not rule out the possibility of a run for Supervisor at some point in the future.

Suff. Co. Historical’s Groundbreaking Exhibit


arely has a local museum exhibit triggered such a strong emotional reaction and never has an exhibit at the Suffolk County Historical Society generated so much press and conversation. “Hidden and Forbidden: Art and Objects of Intolerance, Evolving Depictions of Blacks in America” which runs through June 1, has been featured in The New York Times, The East Hampton Star and on News 12, while debates about the subject matter echo across the Island. “People come in and look at the Ku Klux Klan costume and they look at the Klan rally picture, and say ‘Well, you know, the Suffolk County KKK was only against the Irish, Catholics, and the Italians...’ “ says Suffolk County Historical Society Director Kathryn Curran. “And that makes it, what…better? For me— that’s a trifecta.” With an overwhelmingly supportive response, the Society has seen greater traffic for “Hidden and Forbidden” than any other show in their history. Jointly curated by Curran, Georgette Grier-Key, Director and chief curator of Eastville Community Historical Society and David Byer-Tyre, curator of African American Material Culture and Hofstra University Oral History Programming Director, the exhibit highlights the history of racism on Long Island, with artifacts that depict slavery, Jim Crow laws, the Klan and the political developments of the Civil Rights Movement.

Hampton Bays St. Patrick’s parade Celebrate this Saturday

George Skidmore

The man behind iconic Skidmore’s Sports & Styles

Meet the Hampton Bays Parade Grand Marshal


he St. Patrick’s Day parade in Hampton Bays has become a celebrated East End tradition for the past nine years, but this year it will start off with something very untraditional. For the first time, the Grand Marshal will be a woman—Sister Kathryn Schlueter, principal of Our Lady of the Hamptons Regional Catholic School. What’s more, Sister Kathy—as she is known throughout the community—isn’t Irish. “I went to Ireland once—maybe that counts!” she said. But what really counted to the Hampton Bays Ancient Order of the Hibernians Michael Collins Division, the parade sponsors, was Sister Kathy’s commitment to Catholic education, her unwavering determination and her enormous popularity. “We chose her because she is very, very active in the Catholic community, she’s been an excellent principal of OLH, and she has friends all over the East End,” said George Brogan, chairman of the Parade Journal committee. OLH, the Roman Catholic school on North Main Street in Southampton, was on the brink of closing in the late 1980s, before Sister Kathy became principal in 1987. Not only has the school made a comeback, but they’ve just built a new addition for the 345 students, whom Sister Kathy refers to as “my kids.” Sister Kathy may be breaking new ground by being female and lacking ancestors from the old sod back in Ireland. But isn’t there a saying that everyone is a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day?

Celebrate Historic Hampton Bays

Residents hope the historic Canoe Place Inn, which dates back to 1750, will soon be restored to its former glory. The Shinnecock Lighthouse was once one of the tallest structures along the Eastern Coast. The lighthouse stood at 180 feet tall and was visible for 27 miles. It was built in 1858 on what was referred to as Ponquogue Neck, just north of the present day Coast Guard station. Amazingly this 10-acre parcel of land was purchased by the government for a whopping $100. In 1931, the government decided that the lighthouse had become obsolete and so it was

ampton Bays was originally established as Good Ground in 1790. The area was appropriately named for its plethora of wildlife and proximity to many different waterways. It encompassed several smaller communities, including Red Creek, Squiretown, Canoe Place, Ponquogue, West Tiana and East Tiana. These neighborhoods are still in existence, housing some descendants of the original settlers. As the East End grew as a popular summer tourist destination, the hamlet’s name was changed to Hampton Bays, in 1922, in order to be more clearly associated with the exclusive “Hamptons.” Hampton Bays brought its own unique history and identity to the Hamptons name. Sadly, though, many of the historic landmarks, including the famed Hercules statue and the Shinnecock Lighthouse, have been removed over the years.

Bays landmark is the Ponquogue Bridge. Originally built as a drawbridge in 1931, the Old Ponquogue Bridge connected Ponquogue Neck to Dune Road. The present day Ponquogue Bridge was completed in 1987 alongside the old bridge piers, standing 55 feet tall at a cost of $13 million. Opened in 1892, the Shinnecock Canal has been vital to the areas of transportation and tourism to the Peconic and Shinnecock Bays and to the surrounding communities. The Canal has had many makeovers and redesigns since it began as a small hand-dug stream in the 1600s. Today, the lock system allows boaters to navigate between the ocean and area waterways, while also providing ideal fishing from the embankments. Since 1978, The Boardy Barn has been one of the most cherished and notorious bars in the Hamptons. Everyone has stories about going to this party mecca, but no one actually knows its back-story.If you chose to visit, note that a 2011 New York Post article reported that more beer was sold at the Boardy Barn in an afternoon than Yankee Stadium or Citi Field served on gameday. This weekend’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, which begins at 11 a.m., is the perfect excuse to head to good ol’Hampton Bays. Hampton Bays Historical Society


controversially toppled in 1948. The Hercules statue is the figurehead from the U.S.S. Ohio, carved from a single piece of cedar in 1820. It stood on the grounds of the Canoe Place Inn, but was relocated to the town of Stony Brook when Ward Melville purchased it. However, Canoe Place Inn is still very much in existence, though residents are hoping the building will be restored in order to preserve the landmark and its history. Canoe Place Inn is said to be the oldest inn site in America, built by Jeremiah Culver in 1750. It was run by the Herrick family from roughly 1756 until it was sold in 1785, and Canoe Place Inn for many years was the only stop between Riverhead and Southampton. During the American Revolution, British Cavalry occupying the area took up residence at Canoe Place Inn. The inn served as a home and headquarters to British officers during the winter of 1778–79. Their fort spanned more than two acres of trenches on the hill behind the inn. It later became a popular destination for politicians and socialites through much of the 18th century. A terrible fire in 1921 ravaged the building, leaving only two chimneys in its wake. The Inn was later rebuilt and expanded, and it has since housed numerous nightclubs. Colloquially known as “C.P.I.” for years, it has changed names and owners several times and is now vacant. Another recognizable—and necessary—Hampton

Landmark Store Has Diverse History

Skidmore’s Sports & Styles” reads the sign above the small mom-and-pop-style store on Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays. Upon first glance, this unassuming old-fashioned store evokes the feel and charm of the Historic Main Street. But this iconic Hampton Bays shop isn’t just part of the backdrop. It’s a living narration of the hamlet’s history. When walking into the sports shop, you are instantly taken back by the immense quantity of sporting goods displayed strategically throughout the space. After weaving through the merchandise, you find the counter, where you notice the owner— sometimes the lone worker—greeting customers, hanging items on the wall or answering phones.

Skidmore has been in business for over 40 years, but he still enjoys seeing people’s expressions the first time they open the door to his store. George Skidmore has been in business at this location since 1972, when he took the store over from his father. But the Skidmore store’s history doesn’t begin there. The exact dates are a little fuzzy, but the Skidmore family has been in business in Good Ground for over 140 years. “Well, four generations of us have been in business here from the 1870s and up,” says Skidmore. “My great-great-grandfather and my great-grandfather used to have a blacksmith shop at this very spot.”

Back in those days, the Skidmore family was hard at work forging, setting and welding metal as well as shoeing horses. It was around this time that the blacksmith shop was moved closer to the center of Good Ground, which was formally renamed Hampton Bays in 1922, to the current site of Skidmore’s Sports. Skidmore’s Sports & Styles The shop burned down in 1909, but it was immediately rebuilt by the family. They decided to put the shop closer to the street so they could service automobiles. That old service station was called the “Blue Front Garage,” but the name was later changed to “Skidmore’s Cash Garage.” “My father then transformed the area into an automobile shop,” says Skidmore. “He loved fixing and working on cars, like I love what I do.” And when it was George’s time to take over the space, he decided to give the community a sporting goods store. This change came as no surprise to the locals, who knew Skidmore had a passion for sports and for servicing the local sports scene. Right after graduating high school, Skidmore was asked by the school’s coach to assist him in coaching youth baseball teams that summer. Ten years later, Skidmore helped establish an official Little League, the first of its kind in the town. When asked why he decided to change it into a sports store, Skidmore succinctly replies with a chuckle, “I thought it’d be more fun. It seemed to me like the only way I would just enjoy myself better.”

Hampton Bays is still a baseball town—no surprise, it’s Skidmore’s favorite sport—and baseball gets the most real estate in his store. Though Skidmore’s Sports & Styles has adapted to modern times and features popular brands like Adidas, Teva and Reef as well as an eclectic offering of shoes, children’s clothing, swimwear, athletic gear and accessories, it still holds true to its storied roots. Skidmore has been in business in Hampton Bays for over 40 years, but he still enjoys seeing the expression on new faces the first time they open the door and enter his store. “Gee…this is the first time we’ve been in here—I never thought you’d have so much stuff,” says Skidmore, mimicking what many say when they come in. “The outside of the store makes the store seem smaller than it really is,” adds Skidmore. “But I like the way it looks outside, even if it looks small…that’s why you have to come in.” Although there’s more competition nowadays than there was when Skidmore first came to the business, it’s nothing his down-to-earth and welcoming personality couldn’t overcome. Locals know that no two things in Hampton Bays go better together than little league baseball and Skidmore’s Sports & Style. Stephanie de Troy

The Inbetween People prompts reflection and sadness

Openings, closings see and be seen.


BGB may be long gone, but punk is alive. Look at InCircles, a band from East Quogue that has just released its first full-length album, YoungBlood, on the MonkMusic 360 label. InCircles includes lead singer and guitarist Jewlee, with Tyler Allen on drums and Eric “The Captain” Ponto on bass. Going on their eighth year performing together, InCircles’ members are veterans of the flourishing Brooklyn punk scene, and they have a large and fervent Long Island fan base. True to punk’s back-to-basics aesthetic, the tracks on YoungBlood are fairly stripped down in terms of instrumentation—mainly guitar, bass and drums, and Jewlee’s distinctive lead vocals. The influence of contemporary production style comes through primarily in the touches: little glimmers of feedback, some low-key sound effects, occasional sample-like punctuations.YoungBlood was expertly produced and mixed by Cynthia Daniels at MonkMusic Studios in East Hampton. The track “Long Island” begins with suspense. A spare guitar figure accompanies quiet, distant vocal harmonies, like far-off train whistles at night. This peaceful (though somewhat ominous) introduction gives way to a snarling, drum-laden rhythm, as if the LIRR had suddenly appeared in the backyard. Jewlee alternately sings and screams her autobiographical lyrics over the driving riff. The tension between the gentle opening textures

and the heavy sections is never fully resolved in the song. Jewlee discusses this sharp contrast, and whether it relates to growing up on Long Island, which the song is clearly about. “Our idea about that was to get at that sometimesunsettling sensation of a calm in a whirlwind of chaos. You could see it as being a metaphor for all of the energy that can be contained in an outwardly peaceful place like East Quogue: The Hamptons parents taking their kids to the beach, and meanwhile young local kids caught up in their own hell.” From its surface, “At The Zoo With Dr. Mengele” would seem the singalong of the set, with a cheerful, catchy arrangement that showcases Jewlee’s attractive singing. The lyrics, however, might give one pause: “children of the sand burn and rape the land/they are laughing ‘cause their heads are empty/stomachs full/I am the bomb creator/I am the navigator/I am the face breaker.” Here, beneath the sunny pop-song architecture, lurks a dark understanding of the carelessness with which the powerful visit suffering upon the rest of the world. The song “Emerald Harbor” finds InCircles experimenting with a more intimate and varied soundscape. With its hypnotic repetitions and simple two-chord structure the arrangement generates sonic interest through a slow aggregation of texture and a careful control of tension and release. It’s a standout track that rewards repeated listening. The only cover song on YoungBlood, a thumping rendition of The Beatles’ “Helter Skelter,” gives Jewlee

another chance to belt, doing her best to measure up to Paul McCartney’s unhinged howling on the original recording. It turns out that The Beatles’ little nugget of 60s proto-metal was a formative influence on InCircles. Jewlee: “I’ve always admired ‘Helter Skelter,’ since I first heard it. I read somewhere that Paul just wanted to write the heaviest song he possibly could. I like that idea, and our version is a tribute to that sense of extremity. Plus, the song is fun to sing and play.” On that note, InCirlces is fun to listen to, so check it out. YoungBlood is available locally at Crossroads Music, InnerSleeve Records, and at SagTown Coffee.

The Art of Curating, Part III Curators come from various backgrounds, as we have seen in this column over the last two weeks. Whether they are associated with one particular gallery or work independently, they appear to have one thing in common: an art background combined with training in a wide range of disciplines. Karyn Mannix is no exception. She is a painter and holds an advanced degree in Art Theory. As a freelance curator, she has organized shows for established galleries and developed a series of “pop-up” exhibits in the local area. All these endeavors appear to have similar traits, driven by Mannix’s high energy level and edgy worldview. Oftentimes her art is conceptual and/or interactive. One work, Confessional, asked viewers to write a confession and place it in a box. Other creations feature iconic images evoking irony, like a stamp with a peace sign that resembles a rabbit.

Mannix works hard to create interesting shows that draw people into the galleries. “It’s such a good feeling after you get everything up.” Exhibits curated by Mannix also convey a similar sensibility, composed of works that have diverse interpretations and unusual themes. For example,

a show at the Peter Marcelle Gallery (when it was located in Southampton) celebrated the collaboration between artists and poets: poets wrote text, and artists painted images to go along with the words. Pop-up shows organized by Mannix are equally provocative. She currently has plans for a presentation in Watermill (this June through October), featuring British Street Art and various kinds of performances. Pop-ups are a particular favorite format, according to Mannix, who says the advantage is obvious: little overhead. Even so, what else is important regarding pop-up shows? For Mannix it’s getting people to come to a particular exhibit. Curator Karyn Mannix “It’s all about business,” she notes with conviction. “You have to bring people into the gallery. And that takes passion for what you do.” Besides passion, we wonder what else Mannix considers salient when organizing a show? “I like ‘raw’ space,” she answers with enthusiasm. “High ceilings, white walls, industrial space.” And what about curating? That’s certainly an essential part of organizing an exhibit. “Oh, that’s my favorite part, the best part, of doing an art show,” Mannix responds quickly. “It’s such a good feeling after you get everything up. It’s so much stress before that.” Stress is not new to Mannix, especially considering that she was in the fashion business (she had a

fashion line at Bloomingdale’s) before deciding to concentrate on exhibiting art. Many things contributed to Mannix’s decision: majoring in design at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology was one factor, getting a degree through Cooper Union in Post Modern Art Theory and Criticism was another. (Asked about the influence of this field on curating, Mannix says she learned about museum studies and writing.) Perhaps it was also the fact that all of her brothers and sisters were in the arts. However, of all these influences, Mannix attributes fashion as helping her the most regarding curating. “Fashion gave me the ability to see,” she says. “And when we would have a fashion show, the backstage chaos was really something. Pins all over the place, eyelashes flying. But then it all came together. Just like when you’ve hung a show.” Photo by Mary J. Allmaras

Caught Between The Lines of Time By Joan baum

You can’t get any more timely than The Inbetween People (The Permanent Press), a novel suffused with Arab-Israeli tension that not only prompts reflection but sadness. Although she can only explore, not reconcile, the deep cultural divide in The Middle East, first-time novelist Emma McEvoy should be celebrated for bringing off a remarkably well written book that suggests that love and friendship might triumph over murderously divisive politics, if only enough individual Palestinians and Israelis were free to act without feeling the impress of ideology or government. Of course, such a wish seems doomed because of competing claims to land that go back centuries and that continue to infect new generations, subverting peaceful intentions on both sides. It’s the strength of The Inbetween People, however, that while it acknowledges this eternal conflict, Arab-Israeli differences do not constitute the heart of the narrative. Wider and deeper themes about familial love and loss prove even more compelling. McEvoy has a fine ear, which is obvious from the opening line:

“Ancient Egyptians believed they were gods of the underworld, and that their nightly howls were the haunting songs of the dead.” The line, its own paragraph, is followed by the narrator’s introducing himself. He’s 25-year-old Ari Goldberg, who is in a military prison in the Negev, a conscientious objector serving out his time. He says he, too, believes the ancient Egyptian myth. He’s haunted by the ghost of Saleem, a young Arab he met on a beach one hot July day and with whom he formed an abiding friendship. He’s mainly haunted, however, by private demons—recollections of his mother who ran away from the kibbutz where he had been living to be with another man in Norway, where she started a new family. An orphan who had been sent to Israel when she was 12, she had begged her British-born husband to take them to England, but he articulated his commitment to the promised land. Avi, only five at the time, was shattered by her flight and her failure to return. His father, shattered even more, becomes a distant man, stern and lonely, a pioneer-idealist in 1973 who fought in the Yom Kippur War. Taciturn, withdrawn, he nonetheless becomes eloquent when he starts writing letters to his absent wife, short notes at first, then lengthy and poetic, asking her please to take an interest in their son, to come back, if only to visit. “I never stopped loving her,” Avi says, “so that her touch remains upon my

Taciturn, withdrawn, he nonetheless becomes eloquent when he starts writing letters to his absent wife, short notes at first, then lengthy... skin even today, even here.” He never hated her for leaving, “nor did I ever question why I waited, or why the belief that she would one day return occasionally surged through me.” Avi is also haunted by Saleem’s young wife Sahar, who comes to see him in prison, beseeching him to help her escape Saleem’s family and what is certain to be for her a horrendous future. Though born, educated and residing once again in Ireland, Emma McEvoy lived for a time on a kibbutz on the border between Israel and Lebanon, and she splendidly captures the sense of Israel, its scents and smells, its extreme heat and cold, its desert sounds— the wind at night, the jackals. The plot moves on parallel lines—Avi writing at a desk in prison about Saleem, his father writing to his former wife, Sareet. McEvoy subtly brings the domestic and political strands together, showing how in a land like Israel they are inevitably one—the search for a home, the search for a homeland. She makes the title explicit only at the end: Her characters are “in-between people.” They live indeterminate lives as citizens in a country forever at war and as sons and daughters without significant love and family. As Avi reflects, he and his father were “people who were left behind, condemned to live only with [memories].” That same condition applies, as well, to many of those who live in Israel today. Will Avi help Sahar who knows nothing about “the blackness of leaving?”

Movies... Hot Flicks This Week Admission Just in time for college admission season comes Admission, starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. Fey plays Portia Nathan, an admissions officer at the highly selective Princeton University, while Paul Rudd plays John Halsey, the administrator of the experimental New Quest High School, which is hardly the type of place Princeton usually goes looking for qualified applicants. Nonetheless, John asks Portia to pay a recruitment visit to New Quest—truth is, he has a student there that he suspects could be Portia’s own child whom she gave up for adoption. Looks like an above-average romantic comedy, and with any luck, there will also be a few good digs in here about how college admissions officers make their inscrutable decisions. Maybe a little payback for all of those thin envelopes the Ivy League is about to send out. Featuring the great Lily Tomlin as Portia’s triggerhappy mother. Gimme the Loot A much heralded film from first-time director Adam Leon. Malcolm and Sofia are skilled graffiti-writers in the Bronx, but their artwork gets defaced (if that’s the right word) by a rival gang from Queens. So Malcolm and Sofia plan an audacious revenge: they plan to “bomb,” that is, scrawl their graffiti on, the apple that rises from center field

every time the Mets score a home run. That’ll show those Flushing failures who’s boss! One obstacle among many on their path to this objective is that they have no money, and so Malcolm and Sofia’s quest for vengeance becomes a quest to raise $500. With Tysheeb Hickson as Malcolm and Tashiana Washington. Hunky Dory It’s 1976 in Wales, and David Bowie is a god. Minnie Driver plays a failed actress who has returned to her Welsh hometown to become a high-school drama teacher, tasked with channeling her student’s hormonal energies towards Shakespeare. How better to do that than to fill Shakespeare full of the rock music that teenagers love. It’s 1976, so cue the Bowie, Floyd, ELO, Elton John, etc. Could Hunky Dory be Glee with Welsh accents? Yes, it very well could. From the producer of Billy Elliot.

Where to find the bargains this weekend.

For you, family and friends

By stephanie de troy

March was the first month in the early Roman calendar and remained so until 1582, when the Gregorian calendar became the official calendar for most of Western Europe. England and her colonies, however, did not switch over to the new calendar until 1752! I feel badly for the people around in 1752 who had to undergo 11 days being dropped from September to accommodate the changeover. I admire British efforts to keep March as the first month– as we begin to glimpse budding new life, it seems only right that this month should start off the year. This weekend I spotted crocuses popping up all over town and thought it might actually be time to do something about my patio. Which is why on my to-do list for this week is a visit to House to Home in Eastport. Excited for spring, they’ve brought in great new furniture and merchandise, especially outdoor products for their backyard garden. These experts in interior decorating are sure to have something pretty for inside too. House to Home, 499 Montauk Highway, Eastport. 631-801-6100 With Easter on the early side this year, another calendar conundrum involving both the observance

of Passover on the solar/lunar-cycle-based Jewish holiday calendar and the Paschal Full Moon, which can vary as much as two days from the date of the actual full moon, don’t delay in making preparations. If you’re traveling to stay with family or friends that have kids, bring them a little gift from the new Christopher Fisher Baby Spring 2013 line. They have adorable knit sweaters, the softest imaginable, with animal motifs and nautical themes. For yourself, take a peek at the Spring 2013 Collection. Inspired by Arabian sunsets and African landscapes, bold prints are balanced with soft earthy tones, for that effortless look Christopher Fischer perfected. Their end-of-season Easter Sale ends Monday, 3/30, so hurry on over for up to 50% off select styles. Christopher Fischer Baby is available in East Hampton. 67 Main Street, East Hampton. 631-9070900 If you’re hosting, add some cheer to your bathrooms with soaps from LUSH. Tubside favorites include the carrot bubble bar, fluffy egg bath bomb, Easter egg hunt soap, and Brightside bubble bar. These fun soaps also make great little gifts and are a creative alternative to chocolate eggs and bunnies. (Not that we don’t like those too!) Looking ahead, be sure to mark your calendar for Wednesday, April 10: Alex & Ani + Energy is having a jewelry sale from 6-8 p.m. 15% of all proceeds go to i-tri, the Hamptons’ community-based intervention program that teaches at-risk adolescent girls positive body image and healthy lifestyles through

Shinnecock Hardware Has What You Need


hinnecock Hardware is an authorized Ace Hardware retailer in Hampton Bays. They have been serving the community for over 30 years. It’s the place to go if you need to do work around the house or backyard. I recently stopped in to ask one of the employees, Dana O’ Sullivan, some questions about what the store has been up to and what new items are being offered. When asked about the most popular items in the store O’Sullivan noted, “We do refilling of propane tanks on a daily basis. That’s a big thing. We do sell the standard tools that you’d want around the house too. Wrenches, pliers, hammers, drills and so on.” Shinnecock Hardware has been getting in some new items as well. Some of these include: a wireless switch remote, a Stanley F28WW High Power Industrial Framing Nailer W/Smart-T, Hoover UH70085 Wind tunnel Pet Cyclonic Bag less Upright, Coopertools CTK148MP Crescent 148-Piece Tool Set and a PorterCable CF6111 Brad Nailer and Compressor Comb Kit. “We’re very excited to be adding some new items to the mix. We’ll be getting in Craftsman Tools as well as Komodo Joe Grills. They’ll be just in time for the good weather and people will start having their barbeques once again.” The Komodo Joe Grills are usually made of ceramics and steel. Komodo is the Japanese name for stove. The company was started in 2008 by Bobby Brennan and Kerry Coker.

Now with the not-so-great weather it could be an ideal time to get your house and living area ready for the upcoming summer. Some advice O’Sullivan gave was, “A lot of people have been having screen repairs done. It’s important to have them fixed before summer. That’ll keep all the unwanted insects and animals out of the house.”

“A lot of people are also starting to buy and put down Scott’s fertilizer. This is the first and most crucial step in making sure you can get beautiful green grass for your front and back lawn. By doing this you’ll get the lawn you want by the warmer months.” This past summer my fiancée and I bought two

buckets of paint from Shinnecock Hardware. At my house we have plain white walls in every room. I felt that needed to change. We opted for Coral Pink. For the two cans and the roller it came to about $120. It’s crucial to get at least two cans; you’re going to want to do two coats at the minimum. Also I’d highly recommend that you put tape around the edges and cover the sockets. We unfortunately didn’t and had spots that we had to go over with white. “The size of the room determines the outcome of how many cans you will need. For a room that is about 8’ x 8’ or 10’ x 10’ I’d recommend two cans. When you come in and tell us the dimensions of the room we will point you in the right direction,” said O’Sullivan. The store has hundreds of paints to choose from. Different shades and tints of every color you could imagine. Whether you are going for a wild color or more subtle shade you’ll find what you’re looking for. Whether you plan to revamp your house with add-ons or a new room, new paint job, additions to the outside or just looking for the right tools to have when facing a problem, Shinnecock Hardware has all your needs in one place. Their friendly staff is more than willing to point you in the right direction. For more information you can go to their website, or check out their Twitter or Facebook pages.

Sag Harbor Artist “Takes Show on the Road” Sag Harbor artist and craftsmen, Nico Yektai, has been building and designing unique furniture in his Sag Harbor studio since 1995. Yektai discovered the Hamptons as a child when his father, Manoucher Yektai, noted Abstract Expressionist painter and poet, came to the East End in the 1950s. It was an easy decision for Nico to make this area his home 17 years ago when he was looking for a place to set up his studio and create his furniture. Today, he continues to find fodder here in the Hamptons, exhibiting his

The local connections and exposure have helped to propel him as a nationallyknown artist. Among his other accomplishments, in 2012 he was listed in Interior Design magazine and voted one of the “Best of the Year” finalists for his Wall Hung Console Table. This year he was also featured in The New York Times, Garden Design, Dan’s Papers, Fresh Home, Modenus, Nest by Tamara, among other print and oniine publications. In his studio

he creates furniture made out of wood, concrete and glass for both indoor and outdoor spaces. Yektai has a system and process for creating his furniture, and works hard to maintain a sculptural presence in his pieces. His style often revolves around using asymmetrical composition and detailed craftsmanship toward furniture design. When he works one-on-one with a client, he often creates an intricate scale model to work out all the details. He has some signature details to his work, including bringing the legs of tables to the outside of the piece, and sometimes up and over the horizontal surface of the table. There are both practical and artistic qualities to this, as it allows people seated at the table to move their feet freely under the table. It also shows his attention to detail and calls attention to the fact that it Nico Yektai’s Aether bench of maple and stainless steel is not an ordinary piece of furniture.

Restaurant Review: Matsulin


asual anthropological research into the lives of New York’s population of 20-somethings has revealed that “Meet me for sushi and sake” may as well be a generational mantra. The phrase evokes all things chic and hip—the latest culinary craze, paired with a trendy atmosphere. So, I had to bring fellow Dan’s writer Stephanie, a recent East End transplant well versed in the art of meeting for after-work sushi in the city, to test out Matsulin’s assertion that “you will experience the finest of New York dining in the Hamptons.” Walk into Matsulin, and you’re greeted by aesthetically pleasing minimalist décor, the kind whose strategically placed dim lighting, mahogany columns and olive green walls evoke a New York hotspot without the dreaded stigma of “trying too hard” or—worse—any unwelcoming undertones. While we enjoyed the atmosphere’s propensity to evoke long chats, girl talk is best served with delish food. A cursory glance at Matsulin’s extensive menu—with influences from Malaysia, China, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam, all noted—indicated that we would have ample fuel for our conversation. Vivian Ip, Matsulin proprietor, oversees the entire menu. The dishes reflect a combination of family favorites—many of the recipes have been passed down from relatives or added to the menu at a sibling’s request—using authentic Asian flavors and unique twists. (Take note, Irishmen, when selecting a restaurant after the hamlet’s Saturday St. Patrick’s

Celebrate With Soup At sundown, March 25, Jews the world over will celebrate one of their most cherished traditions, the Passover Seder. The tale that is recited at this ceremonial dinner commemorates the Jewish deliverance from slavery as the participants read from the Haggadah and dine on the symbolic foods of the holiday. One of the symbolic foods is frequently the proverbial matzoh ball soup. There is hardly anything that brings tradition closer to home as preparing a loved one’s family recipe. This was strongly felt by Dr. Paula Angelone, a dear friend and busy professional who nevertheless took the time to prepare her mother’s Italian chicken soup at a time of a friend’s need. With Easter on the horizon, I give instructions here to prepare the soup over a couple of days to refrigerate or freeze as necessary, and it’s ready when you are. Each of the below soups is prepared with a base of good chicken stock, preferably homemade. Quality low-sodium chicken broth can be substituted. Just take the time to prepare either soup with love and tradition. CLASSIC MATZOH BALL SOUP Serves 8 For The Matzo Balls 4 large eggs 1/4 cup vegetable oil Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 1 cup matzo meal 1/2 cup seltzer

Cover and cook until light and fluffy, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, reheat soup and carefully transfer matzo balls to hot soup and serve immediately. PAULA’S ITALIAN CHICKEN SOUP Serves 8 to 10 For the meatballs 1 pound ground turkey 1 large egg 1/3 cup coarsely ground breadcrumbs, preferably grain or whole wheat Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper About 1/3 cup chopped flat leaf Italian parsley 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese Water For the soup 1 bunch escarole, stems removed Kosher salt 1 medium onion, chopped 1 rib celery, chopped 1 carrot, peeled and chopped 1 parsnip peeled and chopped 2 quarts homemade or store-bought, low-sodium chicken stock Freshly ground pepper Shredded cooked chicken (from preparing chicken stock or poach a chicken breast on the bone for 15 minutes then cool and shred) Grated Parmesan, optional

Restaurant Review: Frutti Di Mare for Lunch


Rich with a touch of clove. Did I detect a hint of evoo? Whatever Chef did to this classic it was just right. Kelly: While I felt slightly disloyal to my Irish heritage by not ordering corned beef—it’s not often that graces the menu—I had to go with a burrito. I was in one of those moods where I was just craving a to-go Mexican dish, a la Moe’s or Chipotle.

e lly & S tacy: Our staffers often complain about the dearth of good, quick lunch places near our Southampton offices. The good news is, we can hop over to Hampton Bays for a meal. There we can choose from an impressive selection of dishes at Frutti Di Mare. Italian-born Chef Marco Barrila does many things well. Including involving himself in the community. In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, Chef was very active in the relief efforts, making 400 meals for the Red Cross after the organization called on him for help— One of many examples of how Chef has used his talents to benefit the area. And somewhere in between embarking on his charitable endeavors, Chef finds the time to run his Hampton Bays eatery. In addition to standard seafood and French-fried fare, burritos and pasta, on the day we last visited we found a tasty black bean chili, shepherd’s pie featuring creamy mashed potatoes, chicken potpie with a flakey crust and creamy interior and a cheesy/meaty lasagna at the counter, waiting to be served up. Thankfully, co-owner Sheila Minkel was happy to give us samples of Chef’s dishes, which we happily accepted. It was nice to be in a casual atmosphere where value was Frutti Di Mare’s Bread Pudding clearly placed on providing a customized Chef’s vegetarian creation hit the spot with all dining experience. Stacy: Frutti Di Mare was offering different cuisines of the staples—rice, black beans, choose-my-ownfor lunch on the different days of the week. We were veggies—present. I quickly remembered why the there on a Wednesday for…Irish! So I ordered corned mom-and-pops out here put the big chains to shame. beef and cabbage with carrots, potatoes and onions. Moe’s who? Large and in charge, the burrito was a

challenge to finish, but I happily accepted. Stacy: Frutti Di Mare is a friendly place. I hadn’t been in for almost a year but Chef asked how my son was doing. Opposite from Frutti Di Mare, in the same space, there is a Subway franchise. It’s been there for a long time, so Frutti Di Mare has gone in a very different direction. The two eateries share a peppy selection of music and dining tables. They’re casual, but it’s nice to be able to enjoy a quality meal without feeling rushed. Sheila “forced” us both to have a dessert of Bread Pudding—raisin-y, sweet and savory, like French toast without the mess. We left very full indeed. Kelly: The bread pudding was the perfect “afternooncap” to our midday meal. We returned to work satisfied and thankful that a solid, quick lunch option isn’t too far from the office. Bonus: Delivery is also available to Hampton Bays, Southampton and East Quogue. Sound good to you? Pick up a Frutti Di Mare Frequent Dining Card—buy seven, get one free! Stop in before or after this Saturday’s parade to supplement the— uh—traditional Irish liquid diet with some hearty fare. Chef also offers catering through his business Insatiable EATS, which he started with Sheila. When we were there they’d just catered an event at the new Charles Schwab offices in Southampton. We were sorry we’d missed it. Stacy Dermont

Beautiful homes sold this week.

More bargains on the East End.

Bargaining on Your Hamptons Home By robert sforza


ack before the housing crash, many wouldbe homeowners or second homeowners were often discouraged at what they could find with a budget of $500,000. Many homes were labeled as total teardowns or an immediate renovation project, making a feasible mortgage nearly impossible. But now, many Hampton real estate agents are optimistic as to what a budget as low as $380,000 can buy. Not so long ago, half a million dollars wouldn’t buy half an acre in much of the Hamptons. But now that

the market has recalibrated and prices have begun to stabilize, a growing number of modest but more affordable properties are popping up for $500,000 or less, creating opportunities for buyers who were previously priced out. “We currently have a handful of great homes for around $600,000 or so,” says Tom Friedman, a real estate agent with Nest Seekers. “In fact, there are several homes on the market currently for as little as $389,000.” There were 793 homes listed for $600,000 or less in the opening quarter of 2013. Compared to 720 homes

listed for $500,000 or less in the second quarter of 2012, according to Traditionally, more affordable homes have been available in neighborhoods further removed from small, cozy villages and beaches, or areas lying west of the Shinnecock Canal. Now, attractive properties are available in coveted locales east of the canal, which cuts across the South Fork at Hampton Bays, demarcating the more exclusive hamlets and villages running from Southampton to the tip of Montauk. Take a charming circa 1910 cottage with three bedrooms and an enclosed porch cozily nestled on a dead-end street in scenic East Hampton Village. Located within close proximity to the center of town and beaches, it’s listed by Corcoran for $495,000, down from $525,000 in September. Or check out a renovated three-bedroom, one-bath ranch on a quarter acre on a quiet Southampton Village street with access to both Southampton and Sag Harbor, listed by Nest Seekers at $495,000 new to the market.

Such bargains have helped jumpstart the Hamptons market this year already. These properties are sure to sell quickly.

Outside the villages, the deals get even better— larger properties with more amenities for less money. A winsome 1950s ranch that evokes midcentury charm with all its original wood floors and decorative ceilings offers future home buyers much room for expansion. Though only 1,000 sq. ft., the home is ideally sprawled over three-quarters of an acre, with a yard that is ideal for a pool, patio or deck. This three-bedroom, two-bathroom house won’t spend long looking for its next 21st century owner at a priced-to-sell tag of only $550,000. Or, perhaps for secondary homebuyers, a threebedroom, two-bath Sag Harbor home with an enclosed porch and vistas of the bay, for under $495,000, will suit. Of course, you’re not going to find anything on exclusive Georgica Pond, where the cheapest listing with Sotheby’s is currently a 1,100-square-foot cottage for $3.495 million, or south of the highway in Sagaponack, where the least expensive listing is $619,000 for a modest ranch on .63 acres. However, second-home buyers who are willing to invest a little sweat equity can find solid properties with room to expand or improve on for a very affordable price. For Friedman, this particular housing market is dependent upon whether or not potential buyers can get a mortgage. Luckily, it seems that banks are now more willing to extend loans to families for mortgages. Although Friedman remains largely optimistic, the agent notes that there are many lookers, but not as many have had the gumption to ink a deal. “There are a lot of interested home buyers, but many have not pulled the trigger, so to speak,” said Friedman. “Perhaps, they’re waiting on better deals.” Such bargains have helped jump-start the Hamptons market this year already. While some prices have skewed lower, many of these deals may be at their ripest point for the picking. The properties above are sure to sell quickly.
