Dogs gone Wild

Wonderful n e w s ! Scientists have discovered two planets very near to each other in the Lyra Galaxy and almost exactly like earth. They have air, water, an atmosphere, oceans, nice gravity, lots of oil and gas and comfortable temperatures—the whole nine yards. Given the problems of Global Warming we’re now enduring here on earth, the melting ice caps, the worrisome weather swings of storms, floods and tsunamis, they’d welcome us with open arms. (All six arms.) There are two planets, so they could share. They could all move over to one of the planets, pat the ground friendly-like on the other, and then we could move in and they could celebrate with us. Or, they could eat us. -- DR 5.

Martha Stewart was caught snoozing at East Hampton neighbor Jerry Seinfeld’s “Stand Up for a Cure” show at Madison Square Garden last Wednesday. Stewart told The New York Post, “I did catch myself doze off—nothing to do with the great comedy of Seinfeld. Must have been the 5 a.m. wake-up call for the Today show that morning! And the back-to-back meetings all day.” Sag Harbor’s Donna Karan hosted “Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts,” an event benefitting Haitian artists, in New York last week.

“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 By DAn rattiner

Week of April 19–25, 2013 Riders this past week: 8,821 Rider miles this past week: 96,566 DOWN IN THE TUBE Wall Street’s Steve Rattner, developer Bruce Ratner and Dan’s Papers founder Dan Rattiner were seen talking to one another about something on the subway heading from Amagansett to East Hampton last week. COMPUTERIZED MESSAGE SCREENS COMING On many subway platforms in the New York Subway system there are computerized message screens, which tell you when the next train is coming. It could read “6 TRAIN CITY HALL IN 6 MINUTES.” Then, two minutes later it says “4 MINUTES.” Four minutes later the 6 pulls into the station. This is a great boon to New York City subway riders. Commissioner Aspinall has become intrigued by this and is determined to bring such message screens to Hamptons Subway. Last week, he sent Hamptons Subway’s software

expert Gladys Gooding to Manhattan to look over how they do it, and she saw the messages on the Lexington Line, then went to subway HQ. After just one day, however, she got very upset and came home to tell the Commissioner that she couldn’t figure it out because it’s just too complicated. The Commissioner has already ordered 18 of these screens and they should be here by next Friday. Somehow, we will figure it out. This is the 21st Century after all. RUNAWAY TRAIN As everybody knows by now, last Friday was one of the worst days at Hamptons Subway. The system was shut down from morning to night to deal with a very dangerous situation, a runaway train circling the system. Various attempts were made to stop it, none worked, and it just kept going. The problem began in the Montauk yard at 8:40 a.m. when a five-car subway train being washed somehow lurched into forward gear and headed out toward Amagansett and East Hampton with nobody at the wheel. It was soon holding a steady 42 miles an hour along the Napeague stretch, the fastest it could go. Phone calls were instantly made to the subway

April 26, 2013 Page 19 trains further up the line who were each told to let off all passengers at the next station they came to and then head onto sidings to avoid being crashed into. There are six trains on the system at all times. Five trains complied, but a sixth, just leaving Southampton heading west, failed to get the message. The runaway went through East Hampton, Bridgehampton and Southampton, while the train ahead of it fled further along, with all still on board. Neither train stopped for the next nine hours as both trains went around and around the full 60-mile circuit. The motorman on the passenger train at this point said he was too fearful to stop. Attempts were made at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. by workers to leap on board the runaway, but both efforts failed. At 6 p.m., a grating was removed on the sidewalk above Montauk Highway in Water Mill and a worker tried to ease himself down, but the train was going too fast. More success occurred when volunteers at Noyack passed sandwiches through open windows of the train being chased as it came through. Finally, at 8 p.m., the motorman of the full train, having found he was slightly faster than the runaway, had pulled up behind the runaway, and, able to see it, found the courage to stop at the next station and let everybody off, then rush off to a siding. a night. The runaway finally stopped Bwhen EWhat N itEran F Iout T Sof:gas. Calculations were made showing the train gets 11.3 miles a gallon, which andknown before. weEasy had not

We’ve been proudly grooming the Hamptons for 20 years.

Putting on the Squeeze A man in Montauk thought it would be appropriate to squeeze the booty of a woman while at a local bar. The boyfriend of the woman was there, so needless to say, things did not go well. Police arrived and arrested the squeezer, who sat overnight in jail on his bandonkadonk. Up, Up and Away Thousands of dollars worth of balloons were reported stolen from a home in Bridgehampton, and the owner told authorities that one balloon was valued at $2,000. Police are following up on various leads, but so far the sources have all been full of hot air. Reward A truck in Montauk owned by The Sloppy Tuna was reported vandalized by criminals last week. According to a spokesperson for the restaurant, a person drove up to the vehicle while wearing a hooded sweatshirt and threw paint thinner all over the vehicle. The restaurant is offering up to a $5,000 reward for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators. Shelter Island Old Man McGumbus, 102 years old, former welterweight boxing champion for the United States Army, inventor of the 100-pound dumbbell, and current President of the Shelter Island Historical Housing Authority, was arrested last week for assault. During his morning swim around the island, McGumbus noticed a man taking his picture with a cell phone. Aggravated by the act, McGumbus approached the man, 26-year-old Venus Jones of Brooklyn, who is on Shelter Island filming a documentary about his experiences traveling to different coffee shops around the country while eating only organic tomatoes. McGumbus asked Jones why he was filming him, to which the young man replied, “I find you really groovy.” “GROOVY?! HOW’S THIS FOR GROOVY?” At which point McGumbus karate kicked Jones in the groin and took his cell phone. Bamboo A resident in Noyac called police last week to report that somebody had stolen eight bamboo plants from the rear of her property while she was away on vacation. Sag Harbor resident Earl Panda has been taken into custody. Utensils Missing A man in Water Mill reported that $5,000 worth of kitchen utensils had been stolen from his home, including a set of antique spoons and serving sets. Insert “born with a silver spoon in his mouth” joke here.

Southampton pet lover Beth Ostrosky Stern was interviewed by The Huffington Post last week about life with husband Howard as well as her new Nat Geo Wild show, Spoiled Rotten Pets. Stern said the new gig is “…a dream come true for me. It’s not work at all. It was so fantastic and fabulous for me to be around people who love their pets.” Hamptons regular and former President Bill Clinton received GLAAD’s Advocate for Change Award last week. GLAAD’s Media Awards acknowledge “inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.” Orphans, the new Broadway play starring Amagansett resident Alec Baldwin, received three stars from The New York Post. Said the reviewer, “Baldwin deftly suggests Harold’s paternal sentimentality, even if at times he feels like Jack Donaghy engaged in his toughest mentoring project yet.” Orphans is playing at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre through June 30.

The Golden’s Pickle Works after being struck by a Long Island Rail Road train

Railroad Stories

Wrecks, Wars, Dreams, Schemes, Hopes and Nazis on LIRR By Dan Rattiner


Dan's Banner Clocks_Layout 1

ere are six brief East End stories from the colorful history of the Long Island Rail

Road. First a little background. Originally, before railroads, long trips were an arduous affair by stagecoach and people rarely took them. Mostly, they would take trips, when they had to, of 10 to 15 miles. And so when the first railroads were built, they were built by local people for short distances to accommodate the traffic that would want that. Thus, in the 1830s through the 1860s, there were as many as a dozen individually owned railroad companies on Long Island started up, with names such as the Brooklyn and Jamaica, the Flushing Railroad, the North Shore Railroad and the South Side Railroad and so forth. One of them, started in 1834, was for a grander plan. Major D. B. Douglass imagined a railroad down the center of Long Island to Greenport, from where, by using a ferry purchased from Cornelius Vanderbilt, he could take passengers to Connecticut and from there to Boston. He started this business, called the Long Island Rail Road, in 1834, and in the years that followed, in fierce competition with the other smaller railroads, he gobbled them up one by one, finally bringing service to Hampton Bays in 1869 and to Sag Harbor in 1870. Thus did the Long Island Rail Road become a monopoly for service on the Island. 5/18/12 9:44 AM Page 1

Douglass’s original plan, to provide fast service to Boston, came to failure. Not long after he started the LIRR, a rival company built a railroad that directly connected New York and Boston. The Long Island Rail Road went into bankruptcy. And then things started happening. Here are the highlights. ATTEMPT TO BUILD A CITY IN FORT POND BAY In 1880, a vigorous Manhattan businessman named Austin Corbin brought the Long Island Rail Road out of bankruptcy. He had a grand plan for a part of the lonely, barely used East End part of the railroad. This was the track that had gotten as far as Amagansett. Corbin extended the line out to Fort Pond Bay in Montauk, where he built six different sidings. He planned to make it a very busy place. In 1894, he petitioned Congress to make Montauk a duty-free port. At that time, the way goods got from Europe to New York was by cargo ships that traveled through the ocean, along the south shore of Long Island, and then up through the Narrows to the Port of New York. Big ships traveled only about 18 knots. Then, if they got to the Narrows at the wrong time, they had to wait for high tide to get over the bar there, which could take up to six hours at anchor. Fog was also an issue. No one dared through at night. Corbin began to let the word out. After Congress made Montauk (Continued on next page)

LIRR (Continued from previous page) a duty-free port, big ocean liners and freighters would dock at Fort Pond Bay in Montauk, the goods and passengers would be loaded into railroad trains out on wharves, and from there they would be whisked off to Manhattan at a mile a minute—in less than two and a half hours. It would save an entire day compared to the old way of getting things to New York. This plan electrified the Port of New York, and the Mayor of that city to try to stop it. They enlisted the Army Corps of Engineers to say the bay was too shallow. They wanted to deny Corbin’s planned tunnel under the East River. But it was no use. The bill was headed for passage in 1896 when, on June 4 of that year, Austin Corbin, vacationing in New Hampshire, was thrown from a carriage drawn by runaway horses and killed. His dream died with him. THE GREAT PICKLE WORKS WRECK At 4 p.m. on Friday, August 13, 1926, a Long Island Rail Road train left Manhattan at 3:45 p.m. for its regular high-speed trip—along some stretches at 70 miles an hour—headed for Greenport. This was the famous parlor car train, where men sat in easy chairs in the first-class cars, smoking cigars and having cocktails made by white-coated attendants. Among them on board was Harold Fish, a stockbroker and wealthy aristocrat who had, as many wealthy people did, a large summerhouse on Shelter Island. His family would meet him at the Greenport station in their automobile and take him on the short ferry ride to that island so

the family, together, could enjoy the weekend. There seemed nothing unusual about this trip at first. This was the fast train, the Shelter Island Express, the pride of the railroad. It made few stops along the way. And it got to Greenport, 100 miles away, in less than two and a half hours. (The Hamptons version of this was, and still is, “The Cannonball.”) About three-quarters of the way out from Manhattan, in Calverton, just to the west of Riverhead, the train usually roared by an amusing-looking little factory. People would look out the window at it. The factory was at the end of a railroad siding, not 100 feet from the main line, a big wooden barn in which barrels of pickles, bags of salt, tubs of brine and bottles and caps were assembled and, on conveyor belts, packaged to be sent off to markets in Manhattan. It had, up on the eaves, above the highest window, a giant sign in the shape of a pickle. Upon it was the word GOLDEN’S. Inside that factory, that day’s shift was to end at 6 p.m. The foreman, however, seeing as how it was Friday and it was quite a hot day in that barn, had everybody put the wooden lids over the brine, tie up the salt sacks and clean up at 5 p.m. so everybody could go home at 5:30 p.m. He locked up around 5:35 p.m. At 5:45 p.m., a man in a farm truck on a dirt road had stopped at a railroad crossing a quarter mile before the pickle factory. He had come to a full halt. When the Shelter Island Express came roaring through, you didn’t want to be on the tracks. Indeed, off to his left, he saw

it, coming on, blowing its horn. He was, as it turned out, the only person to witness the Great Golden’s Pickle Works Wreck. The train that day was being pulled by Locomotives No. 2 and 214, two of the biggest and most powerful engines in the railroad’s possession. On board was the engineer, the fireman, the brakeman, several parlor cars filled with people, and several regular cars. As this man in the truck watched, engine 214 suddenly leaped into the air, turned sideways, drew engine 2 behind it, and then the rest of the train down the siding tracks in a great tangle of dust and smoke, directly into the empty pickleworks building, where it all came to a halt with a gigantic crash. The building with everything in it collapsed, the sign came down, and it was just a complete disaster. The man in the truck got out and ran to the scene. He was soon joined by the Calverton fire department, the police, an ambulance service and, after a while, some soldiers from the nearby Army training base, Camp Upton. A woman and two children died in this accident. So did the fireman and brakeman, who the injured engineer found dead under tons of hot coals in the coal car. Also dead was stockbroker Harold Fish, found inside the factory, buried under piles of white salt spilled down from barrels that contained them overhead. It was one of the worst train wrecks ever in the history of the railroad. Investigations later determined it was due to (Continued on page 34)

Two Shot Penalty How Hubris, Ignorance and Talking Too Much Cost a Golfer $1 million By Dan Rattiner


t was thought that Tiger Woods had a good chance to win the Masters tournament two weeks ago. He has his love life straightened out. He’s hitting the ball well. When he hits it well, nobody can catch him. Well, he might have won if he hadn’t said something he would have been better off not saying to the media. Among other things, it may have cost him more than a million dollars. The game of golf has a set of rules that boggle the mind. As the game evolved from trying to hit a ball into a cup with a stick to something much more complicated, things got way out of control. The rules are quite boring, actually. And I will only bother you with one of them, which is related to how Tiger Woods got involved with losing more than a million smackers. This is a rule that comes into effect when you hit a ball to a place that is not a part of the golf course. I take that back. This is a rule that involves what happens when you hit a ball to a place that IS part of a golf course but which you can’t get to. For example, if you hit a ball into a small pond next to a green, you can’t just wade in and hitShopOnLine it from there. Well, you can.Page But1 you KKG-6414 Strip 4/10/13 12:24 PM

will probably get nowhere doing it, unless it’s right near the edge. So you won’t. On the 15th fairway, during the second round (they play four rounds of golf in the Masters), Tiger Woods was tied for the lead. He had hit his ball down the fairway. It was just 150 yards to the green. If he could hit the ball near enough to the hole to get it in with one putt, he would take the lead. Indeed, Woods hit a spectacular shot. It was so good, if it had come all the way down to the ground it would have hit just two inches from the hole. Unfortunately, the pin was still in the hole, so it hit the pin, bounced back and rolled into this little creek. According to the rules, when a ball is in a hazard or unplayable, one of your options is to hit it again from where you hit it before. Specifically, you are to stand up straight and drop another ball to as close as you can get it to where it was before. In this case, there was a small divot at the spot from which he hit it the first time. Woods, after walking to the creek to have a look, returned to where he had hit the ball the first time and dropped another ball. It came to rest about four or five feet behind where he had hit it the first time. Golf officials are all over the place on a golf

course where a match of this magnitude is taking place. They saw nothing amiss about this. Woods said nothing. He hit it again and this time got it to land just IN FRONT OF the cup. He plays amazing golf. The length of oneand-a-half football fields, and he gets the ball to come down four feet from the cup. After the round was over, the press interviewed the players. Woods, who had gotten a six on the hole because of the penalty inflicted after the ball went into the water, was asked about how he played his shot after the drop. His answer, spoken gently, and with complete modesty, was in keeping with the fact that he can hit a ball to a place with more precision than practically anybody. “I went back to where I was,” he said “and actually took two yards further back and tried to hit my shot another two yards off of what I felt like I hit it.” This is an extraordinary thing to say. He is 150 yards from the cup. He’d have hit it exactly 150 yards and two inches if he hadn’t hit the pin. So he’d back up two yards and hit it two yards and two inches short and it would bounce into the cup. He did fail, actually. He hit it four feet from the cup. Only Tiger Woods can be taken seriously when he says (Continued on next page)

Shot (Continued from previous page) something like that. Later that night, the powers that be called Woods’ handlers and asked that Tiger please stop in and see them before he went out to play on Saturday. They wished him to be there in their offices at 8 a.m. A TV viewer, during Tiger’s round, had called in to say that Woods had done something illegal. On Friday, while Tiger was on the 18th hole, the viewer had called in to say that Woods had made an illegal drop on that 15th hole. The rules committee reviewed video of the drop while Tiger was still playing the 18th, determined he had done nothing wrong, and Tiger signed his scorecard for the round and that was that. But after he gave that interview, they needed to talk to him.

By the time Woods showed up, they had already considered the new rule. They saw nothing wrong with it. What went on in the meeting the next morning was reported at a press conference by Fred Ridley, the Chairman of the Rules Committee. He said that it would appear from Woods’ comments that he might have deliberately tried to drop the ball two yards back. He said he did. Did he really mean that? If he did, then he was breaking the rule. The rule said you drop the ball “as close as possible” to where

it was before. Therefore, if he broke this rule and didn’t take any penalty strokes for it, that meant he had signed an incorrect scorecard. Signing an incorrect scorecard means you are disqualified. So they had wanted to hear his side of the story. As a matter of fact, they had already decided they would not disqualify him. There is a new rule, passed just two years ago, which says that if a golfer, believing he is not breaing a rule actually does break it, while at the same time the officials rule he didn’t break it, they can’t go back at a later time and disqualify him if new evidence unfolds. This protects the golfer. He gets to the final hole, wins, and then the next day they tell him they changed their mind? The new rule says you can’t do that.

they had already considered the new rule. The officials had watched him make the drop. They saw nothing wrong with it. So now they couldn’t disqualify him. On the other hand, if a golfer, after a round, admits he deliberately broke a rule, he could be disqualified. So they asked Woods if that’s what he did. Did he know he’d broken the rules? Did he just say that for the effect it might have during an interview? Or had he actually intended to drop the ball two yards farther back? He told them he deliberately dropped the ball farther back. But he thought it was within the rules. It was behind the divot. Basically, the officials said that was no excuse. He’d made an illegal drop. A two stroke penalty was added to his score for the round the day before. Now get out there and play your final two rounds. I told you this was an interesting story. So Tiger Woods comes out for the final two rounds not three strokes behind the leader, but instead five strokes behind. He’s a fast-charging finisher, as you know. He was now tied for 19th, not 7th. He couldn’t do it. And so, in the end, Tiger Woods finished four strokes behind the winner. Had he not blabbed about what he’d done, he’d have finished two strokes behind the winner, and maybe he’d even have won if his concentration hadn’t been disturbed. As it was, his tied-for-fourth winnings were about a million dollars less than if he had won. A moral? Honesty doesn’t pay.

It’s About Dogs Citizens Express Their Opinions at East Hampton Village Board Meeting By Dan Rattiner


he historic wood-shingled village hall in East Hampton is not big enough for a large public meeting with the local citizenry. But down the road at the firehouse, there is a public meeting room of grand proportions where meetings can be held. And so, on April 19, that is where the public meeting about dogs took place. The trustees sat at one end of the room behind a row of tables draped with a banner bearing the village seal. Facing them were folding chairs, where, when the time came, about 50 citizens would sit down. This would be their time to come up to the lectern and speak in favor of or against the proposed dog ordinance.

The current law about dogs prohibits them on the beach between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. during the summer. It also says people need to pick up after their dogs and be in control of them at all times. The proposed revision would require, for the first time, that dogs be leashed (with a leash not longer than six feet) for the first 500 feet from where they come onto a beach, year around. I had gone there to speak. I wanted to say 500 feet was too far to walk for elderly or disabled people. And I thought no law should prohibit people taking their dogs to the beach in the off-season. I did expect there would be an arms-length debate among those in favor of or opposed to the new law. I was wrong about that. About 30 people spoke. All 30 argued against

having any further restrictions made on dogs. Applause greeted the conclusion of each of the speeches. Dogs are like family to many people, one man said. He said he loved his dog like he loved his wife and kids. He was from the city, he said, and they had a house in East Hampton, and one of the things they loved doing, the dog included, was to all go down to the beach. Two people—one a local person, the other a summer person—said they had disabilities that prevented them from walking 500 feet. The summer person said he took the matter very seriously. It was a constitutional matter. He implied he would file a lawsuit if the change were made. The local person said if the matter passed, he wouldn’t be able to walk his dog (Cont’d on next page) anymore.

Built in 1938 and decommissioned in 2010, the 347-ton Fire Fighter was New York City’s longestserving fireboat. Having been acquired by the Fireboat Fire Fighter Museum, it was recently moved to Greenport, where it will be restored

and preserved as a floating museum. “It’s a great fit for Greenport,” said Ron Breuer, president of the East End Seaport Museum and Marine Foundation. “It’s an historic landmark, and we want to maintain it and get restoration going.” The Fireboat Fire Fighter Museum, which is a New York State charted museum, acquired the boat in October of 2012. “I started sending inquiry letters to the fire department in the spring of 2010,” said Charlie Ritchie, the

There are a lot of people out there who would love to turn it into a yacht or a bar, so they were definitely vetting us to see what we were going to do.” Once the museum acquired the boat, the hunt was on to find a place to keep it. “The boat was docked as reserve in the Brooklyn Navy Yard when we took it over,” said Jeff Jonap, director of operations at Fireboat Fire Fighter Museum.

Dogs (Continued from previous page) The Mayor asked for clarity. If he couldn’t walk, how could he walk his dog in the first place? The man said he could walk a bit, he had a service dog, and he could sit there and watch his dog run happily around. Another summer person said with these new restrictions, the village would suffer a considerable economic impact. Real estate prices would tumble. People who love dogs would find more dog-friendly places to go. One very dignified older man strode to the lectern and said he’d been coming out to his summer home for 50 years and he wasn’t quite sure what the Mayor meant. I think you mean it would be the 500 feet from the back of the beach down to the ocean, right? It couldn’t mean 500 feet to the left or the right, could it?

The Mayor indicated yes, it could. Oh, that can’t be right, this gentleman said. People won’t walk their dogs at all, then. He then said, Well, at least there was the off-season. This rule wouldn’t be in effect in the off-season. The Mayor again indicated yes, it would. That would be very, very wrong, the man said. Then he sat down. Everyone sat silently for a while. One man asked the trustees if biting were a problem. The trustees looked at one another. Apparently not. A woman spoke about how everyone diligently picks up after their dogs at the beach, and if they see someone not doing it, they say something or do it themselves. She also said that when she walks along the beach, she picks up the trash she finds. There is lots of trash. “Other dog-

walkers pick up trash, too,” she said. “Who will do it, particularly in the off-season when there is no one there but us?” “In the off-season,” another man said, “if the only people down there are us, and some fishermen or surfers, who are you protecting?” At this point, it seemed that with the absence of anybody in favor of this new modification, I was not at an official village meeting at all, but a meeting of a group of angry dog owners who had dragged the Mayor and Trustees in and forced them to listen. “We have plenty of laws,” a man said. “I read a comment by Chief Larsen in The Star that he didn’t have enough officers to police the beaches. If he can’t police the laws we have now, how do you expect he’ll be able to police even more laws?” People snickered. There should be no laughing or clapping, the Mayor said. This was a serious board meeting. I then spoke. I said studies show that children raised where there are dogs in the family experience better health when they grow up than those who grow up in families without dogs. I also spoke of the unique bond between dogs and those who owned them. Sarah Davison, director of the Animal Rescue Fund, spoke and said that her organization was in favor of the modification, but the distance having to walk was far too long. And it should only be in summertime. She had a board with large photos of the distance on it. Writer Steven Gaines said if you pass this, it will be reported by the Associated Press. The town would be held up to national ridicule. The Mayor then asked the Village Attorney, who was among the officials at the table, if the proposed ordinance could be modified. Could they take out the part about this being in effect in the off-season? She said that part wasn’t very well written. You could just remove where it said “at all other times.” The Mayor then asked, if they made that change, would it be necessary to have the proposed ordinance re-published? Would there have to be more hearings? No, she said, removing something would just cause a six-day delay. It could still be passed quickly. This had a chilling effect on those who came to speak. It seemed now the Trustees had already made up their minds. “Was that true?” one of the attendees asked. “Are you voting on this today?” The Mayor said they didn’t have to, but he didn’t rule out that they might. Delay this vote, one person said. You can always pass it in the fall. Another speaker asked, Well, who is behind this? The implication was that there was some very rich man who would make a great donation to the village if this were passed. “If 100 people didn’t want this, and 20 people did, would you do it?” he said. “Isn’t this a democracy?” When no further person asked to speak, the Mayor thanked everybody for coming and having their say. He said they would continue on with their regular agenda and then decide how to proceed about the dog ordinance changes. He then said this part of the meeting was over, and so most of the people, including me, left. Woof. The next day, “Newsday” headlined EAST HAMPTON VILLAGE REINS IN PROPOSED LEASH LAW. The Board had decided to reconsider. Nothing would be done, at least until July 4th.

Dammit Sneiv, Nobody Here Has Ever Been Eaten by a Shark By mr. sneiv


hen I was a child, my mother would tell me to wait an hour after eating before I could go swimming in the ocean. This never seemed logical to me, because fish eat and then swim and they don’t die as a result. Still I obeyed her orders. Years later, I would discover that this was just a myth and there was no real correlation between the two. As a writer, I’m not trying to be anyone’s mother, but I feel it’s my responsibility to promote real beach safety for those who seek the invigorating waters of the East End. And now is when this issue is best addressed, while there’s time to practice, before the summer beach season is upon us. I can only hope that Dan’s Papers readers do not discount this advice as some myth, as it may be vital to their survival. I am honored to assume this educational responsibility and am up to the task. Parents can easily teach their kids the basics of beach safety, such as using sunscreen, keeping hydrated, obeying the lifeguards and how to evade a rip current. So I will leave these alone and tackle the elephant in the room— or in this case, the shark in the water. I have watched every episode of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel, so I fancy myself some thing of an expert on shark behavior. For those of you, and I know there are many, who keep older copies of Dan’s Papers around the house, you will be able to confirm that there were many articles written over the past year about East End shark sightings. So the issue is real and upon us.

Don’t try to play dead, expecting that the shark will let you go. This is not an alligator attack. Have fun at the beach! By far, the best way to stop a shark attack is to avoid it altogether. The most common practices in this regard are to stay away from fishing boats, as they often trail fish remains or blood. Likewise, don’t go in the water if you are bleeding. Stay out of the water if baitfish are present, and also if there are large groups of fish or seals. Avoid swimming next to steep drop-offs or harbor channels. Sharks frequent these. Don’t wear shiny bracelets or jewelry into the water. Also—stay away from high-contrast clothing such as orange and yellow, because sharks see contrast very well. Refrain from excessive splashing, as this can attract the beasts as well. Swim in teams. Sharks usually attack only individuals. In case of a shark attack, remain calm. The shark will know if you’re in a panicked state and this will heighten their frenzy, eliminating the chance of them letting go for that split second, whereby the victim (you) can possibly escape. A way to practice remaining calm it is to have someone awaken you in the middle of the night by simultaneously screaming and pinching you with a set of bread tongs. Repeat each night until you can react without panic.

“We asked everybody in the city, but nobody wanted it.” After writing letters and attending meetings all over New York and Long Island, the Fireboat Fire Fighter Museum found Greenport Harbor and the Maritime Museum, where they were greeted with open arms. “This was, by far, the most welcoming and the smoothest for us,” Ritchie said. “The other places in New York City were a lot more tricky, political and expensive.” The Maritime Museum intends to add a fireboat exhibit to their collection, and move the boat to the railroad dock, which is adjacent to the museum building. “We’re going to help them get established here in Greenport, run the tours for them, and help with the fundraising,” Breuer said. “It’s a good place to be, because we’ll get all of the traffic from the museum, the railroad, and the Jitney,” Jonap said. “The first thing they’ll see from the ferry is this monster.” Despite having been in active service for the better part of a century, the majority of the ship is in its original condition. “Everything on this boat is from 1938—good, bad or indifferent,” said Jonap, who is a steam-engineer by trade. “It has to go into dry-dock, because the bow has to be scraped and checked for leaking rivets, and the bottom needs to be sandblasted.” The Fire Fighter is slated to go into dry-dock for a week in June, but it will be on hand for a water display in Greenport Harbor during their Memorial Day celebration.

“Right now, we do dockside tours and water displays,” Ritchie said. “We don’t want to take anyone on board until after we do our shipyard work, because then we’ll know that things are sound.” The majority of the restoration work will be done by volunteers. “My thing is volunteering and drawing youth into working on this vessel,” said Ritchie, whose background is in experiential-education and recreation. “We’ve worked with kids from New York City, and inside of an hour shown them how to chip paint and use a grinder. You have an unbelievable workforce in kids.” Once the boat is presentable, the museums plan to have tours, host parties and special events, and possibly use it for training purposes. “We hope to keep intact the history that’s attached to New York City and 9/11,” Ritchie said. “This boat is so well-loved by the people, and if we need to go back for special events in the city, then we’ll do that.” “It’s a running historical record of the New York City Fire Department Marine Bureau,” Jonap said. “As a national historic landmark, you don’t want to see it sitting in a dry dock somewhere withering away.”

How Smart Are Hamptons Crows? Read This!


arry Penny, who was the Director of Natural Resources for the Town of East Hampton, was good enough to reintroduce me to one of East Hampton’s treasures when it comes to crow behavior: Stuart Vorpahl, also a staunch defender of our fishing rights and access to the beach by the Dongan Patent of 1686. Stuart raised many crows from fluffy nestlings when he was a boy, more than 60 years ago. Around the 20th of May, he would go out and find runts of the litter, as this bird usually doesn’t survive the attacks of his siblings (common in the bird world, fratricide is often the answer to too many mouths to feed). He raised four at a time when he was in the 6th grade, and they would follow him and his pals to school, from Oak St. in Amagansett to the schoolhouse, about a 10-minute walk. He would return every day about 2:30 p.m., and soon the birds learned to meet him at the schoolhouse and escort the gang of boys back to Stuart’s house, showing up minutes before school ended. After a while they started coming to the window of his classroom and pecking at the windowpane next to Stuart’s seat, like they did at the kitchen window at home where he fed them. This did not amuse the teacher, who knew whose crows these were. When they figured out where Stuart’s bedroom window was, they spoke with a clicking sound, which is a crow’s way of recognition and salutation, then they gently tapped on the windowpane so he wouldn’t be late feeding them. They would start this process at the kitchen window, but if they got no response, they learned to go upstairs. The most important thing when teaching a crow, Stuart believes, is you can’t put them in a pen. You have to treat them like a house pet, and they will become as tame as a dog, but smarter. He said Fish Crows are a different matter—they will not learn, period! It’s like trying to teach a pig English: it’s a waste of your time, and it just annoys the pig. Another indication of crows’ high I.Q.s, are the things they do just for fun, like taking clothespins off clotheslines just to see the laundry fall. One crow was seen taking a clothespin apart into three pieces, then just flying away. Stuart came up with an answer: he leaned a BB gun against the clothesline pole, and they never touched the laundry or the pins thereafter. He figures “all crows are born knowing about guns.” Walk into a field full of crows with a broomstick that is fractions of inch skinnier than a single-barrel shotgun, and those crows won’t move. But walk out with a shotgun... Another example of fun for crows is stealing shiny objects. Stuart told me of a mechanic friend who was constantly losing stainless washers and bolts to crows coming by and stealing them. Knowing crows, he told the friend to follow the crow the next time he stole something, as they usually hide their shiny loot in the same place. Sure enough, he saw the crow go to the gutter spout by his garage, and when he opened it up he found dozens of missing shiny parts to motors he had fixed over the years. After that, if he was ever missing something shiny, he knew where to look. An even stranger habit some crows have is called

“false caching,” explained in a book called: In the Company of Crows and Ravens (Yale Press). Crows gain “status” by showing their group a shiny object, then turning their backs, making digging motions as if they’re burying the object, then flying away with that object in their beak and burying it somewhere else, while the other birds try to unearth it where it’s not. Stuart had one crow who would cache bits of swordfish treats he gave him in their backyard, but the family border collie liked swordfish too, and when he tried to dig it up, the crow would punish him with whacks on the skull and tugs on the tail until he gave up digging; soon after the collie would forget where the bits of swordfish were buried, but the crow would not.

Another crow of his was taught to say the word “Help!” and around sunset he would roost in a tree at a busy intersection of Stuart’s neighborhood, and bother his neighbor, who kept coming out of his house to see if anybody had an accident on the corner. When he realized it was a crow, he went right to Stuart’s house, and soon Mr. Vorpahl came up with a fix: he taught the crow to say, “Help, Crow!” and the neighbor knew not to even get out of his chair. The society crows make, scientists say, is as complex as primates in some ways. Year-old males often stay around, helping their parents raise the next clutch of chicks. In other words, uncles are baby-sitting nieces and nephews. I know human families that don’t do that much.

The switch was halfway, neither here nor there, and the train went where it went. The Golden’s Pickle Works Factory, of course, was never to rise again. TORPEDO TESTING Beginning around 1905, a series of fishermen’s shacks began to spring up along the shoreline of Fort Pond Bay. These shacks, about 50 of them, comprised what was then known as the Village of Montauk. There was no other community in Montauk at that time. This was it. The shacks were built by fishermen, most of DansPapersAd_July12.pdf 1 7/27/12 4:00 PM whom were from Nova Scotia. They’d be fishing

out in the Atlantic and, instead of bringing their catch all the way home every time their holds were filled, they would come to the arc of this beach and unload their fish into the boxcars at the barely used railroad terminal there. Then, of course, the fishermen would want to rest up awhile. So that’s how it started. All the land, of course, belonged to the railroad. By 1935 this village consisted of three dirt roads running parallel to the bay. There was a fish house, a post office, a school, a restaurant, a tavern. It was a thriving squatter community by the time the vicious Hurricane of 1938 came through, causing the bay to rise up and flood all the homes and throw them off their underpinnings. Nobody was killed, but the

village was just about over. A few hardy souls remained, and an attempt was made to build the place back up, but then in 1941, with the outbreak of the war, the Navy requisitioned the property, tore down the remaining shacks, and built on it a torpedo testing station. There were at least a halfdozen large buildings on the site, including a laboratory, storage facilities, barracks and a seaplane hanger. Until the war ended in 1945, the place was alive with people in uniform. The torpedoes, built in factories in Queens, were put on railroad trains heading to Montauk, unloaded and stored there and tested in the bay. They’d be loaded with dummy charges, set and fired off into the bay toward targets, with the bubbles trailing behind them to show their trajectory, and with one of the two seaplanes circling around overhead to see if they hit the target. If not, they would be repaired on the site, if possible, and tested again. If they did hit, they’d be packed up onto the railroad trains and shipped out to war zones. After the war, these buildings sat vacant for 25 years. Then, for 15 years, they were the site of the New York Ocean Sciences Laboratory, a research facility that was linked up with Columbia, Cornell and half a dozen other such institutions that would send their students there for two-week courses. After that, the buildings went vacant again. The whole thing was bulldozed to the ground around 1990 to make way for the Rough Rider Landing condominiums. THE MOST DANGEROUS PASSENGERS In the pre-dawn hours of June 13, 1942, four Nazi saboteurs were brought quietly from a German submarine to the beach at Amagansett with intentions of blowing up factories, bridges and terminals across America. They buried explosives on the beach, and then had an encounter with a U.S. Coast Guardsman on watch to look for just that kind of activity. The Coast Guardsman ran off and sounded the alarm, resulting in a combined operation by the Army, the Navy, the FBI and the Coast Guard itself to find these operatives. But they were unable to do so. What they didn’t know was that the saboteurs had scampered along through the farm fields until they got to the Amagansett Railroad Station (next to the firehouse.) No one was there when they got there at 4 a.m. They changed into fishermen’s clothes and sat on a bench outside until a stationmaster came and unlocked the station and sold them tickets to New York City (“How’s the fishing, good?” “Yup.”), after which they boarded the 6:57 a.m. headed in to Manhattan. Going on that day in Manhattan—and this is an unbelievable coincidence—was the biggest parade in the history of the United States, either before or since. Six months earlier, on December 7, 1941, the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor and America declared war on Japan and Germany. As that was just two weeks after the glorious Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in Manhattan, it was almost immediately decided at that time not to hold a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in 1942. However, in February of 1942, Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia had (Continued on page 36) second thoughts.

Been there, done that” could easily describe Peter Garnham’s professional life. Except the verb tense would be wrong. A wiry, compact man of intense energy and ready humor who lives “south ON the highway,” Garnham seems always to be in the forefront of significant East End initiatives. Today, he could boast being the chair of the Trustees of the Amagansett Historical Association and a founder and director of the Food Pantry Farm at ECCO (East End Community Organic Farm)—if he were a boasting man, which he’s not. Born and schooled in London, Garnham is arguably one of East Hampton Town’s most community-minded individuals. He willingly offers to assist in various endeavors because he believes in causes and likes problem-solving. But once he gets involved, someone will inevitably say, “Hey you know about this stuff, why not become a board member or the executive director?” The irony of his current activities with the Food Farm Pantry doesn’t escape him. He started out decades ago in England, studying in an “Ag” school, hoping to be a farmer. But, well, other activities intervened, among them working for Ian Fleming just as the first James Bond movie was coming out. He was hired as a fact-checker and proof reader—a “co-conspirator,” he says drolly. After Fleming died, Garnham went to work for the British government, arriving in the States in 1964 to work for the U.S. government as a “communications engineer.” A what? His weathered, high-cheek-boned face breaks into a grin. A few years in Barbados followed and then it was back to the States—Sag Harbor, to be exact. Whatever the subject, Garnham did it. The range, from researching firearms to organic gardening, is impressive, no matter what the initial prompt. A girlfriend drew him to Sag Harbor, and he was soon assisting Ted Conklin in restoring The American Hotel. Other East End connections ensued, including running an East Hampton disco-bar called Moon. He instituted a Children’s Night there to give local kids something to do—after clearing out the liquor, of course. The gig introduced him to East End parents who were delighted at what he had conceived and urged him to get involved with the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce, where eventually— inevitably—he wound up on the board and as its president. The time-consuming endeavor eventually gave way to a gig as the chamber’s first paid executive director. From there he moved into real estate, heading up the Jack Douglas Real Estate Agency in East Hampton for a few years. And then, typically, intuitively, he and a friend (“the best business partner ever”), Dr. Htun Han, a marine biologist at the Ocean Science Lab in Montauk, got together and opened a real estate office in Amagansett.

Information Officer for the Town of East Hampton. “My job, which was part of the Sanitation Department, started when recycling certain materials became mandatory for town residents.” He held the position until politics intervened, and the position was abolished. He loved the job and the sense of addressing an important need. He already had 22 restaurants from Montauk to Wainscott that had pledged to separate waste, not to mention that the composting facility on Accabonac Road was already built to the tune of $7.5 million. “Now people don’t even know it’s there,” he sighs. “They don’t care about garbage, only that it goes away.” Suspension of that position, of course, meant that the enterprising Garnham was out of work. But not for long. He soon delved into editorial positions, writing and editing nonfiction books for Grolier’s Children’s Press and then for its new parent company, Scholastic. He also wrote articles for upscale horticulture and garden magazines and “content” for online. Although that semantic distinction between writing for print and the web amuses him, he keeps at the freelancing, while also continuing to work as head of the Amagansett Historical Association and the Food Pantry Farm. He’s always had an ardent interest in local history, he says, and found himself entreated to join the Board of Trustees of the AHA. The organization, chartered by the state, is unlike most other historical associations in that it is wholly private. Garnham has already turned his attention to enhancing this 50-yearold tourist site, with new programs planned for the 1725 Miss Amelia Cottage, the 1850s Lester Barn, the Richard S. Jackson Carriage House and now the 1805 Phebe Edwards Mulford House. At the Food Pantry Farm, where he’s been chairman of the board since 2011, he’s leased a couple of acres to raise vegetables for five East End food pantries plus The Retreat. Last year the pantry received 17 tons of organic food, and this year will see a farm stand offering organic produce. Where else, he asks, can he walk around 120 local gardens, pick a leaf from a vegetable and eat it right then with no washing necessary? Despite his round-the-clock work, Garnham keeps on learning, having acquired along the way a Master Gardener certificate from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County— “practical knowledge you don’t get in college.” His passion to probe for answers seems at times prescient. Six years ago he wrote for the White Flower Farm Horticulture Magazine about the hot topic of empty hives and colony death, tracing the problem to memory-damaging chemicals that destroy bees’ sense of direction about where and how to get to pollen fields, ultimately leading to their deaths. No chance that Garnham himself will lose direction. An inner compass always seems to tell him which way the wind will blow.


“Hey, you know about this stuff. Why not become a board member or the executive director?” collaboration was the first such association of independent realtors. Along the way, Garnham also became an EMT with the Amagansett Fire Department, a position he held for 20 years. He did well in real estate, but in the greedy ’80s, business had changed from “Hi folks, can I show you a house?” to investment buyers interested only in a “commodity.” His partner, a Buddhist, had more patience, and Garnham was on to other challenges, including a passionate go at promoting recycling within East Hampton Town. At the time, the environmentalist advocate Barry Commoner was promoting composting food waste, an idea that made good financial and ecological sense. So much money was being spent on trucking away waste, the heaviest portion of which was garbage. Why not compost it? Enter Peter Garnham, Recycling

LIRR (Continued from page 34) If they couldn’t have a Macy’s Day parade that year, they would instead, on June 13, 1942, hold an even bigger parade! It would be called “New York at War.” It would be a parade of tanks, anti-aircraft guns, fighter planes, military units, marching bands and all sorts of other organizations anxious to show their solidarity in what was to be done with Hitler and Tojo. There were giant 30-foot-tall floats of these dictators, being bludgeoned with hammers and stabbed with knives as they were carted up Fifth Avenue. More than 2,000,000 people came to watch this parade. And in the midst of it, four nervous German saboteurs got off the train at Penn Station, climbed up to the street and watched as the latest Grumman F4F Wildcat fighters soared across the sky. They immediately checked themselves into a hotel. And on June 19, one of the four, the leader, went to the FBI and turned the others in. THE KIDS WANT NO SCHOOL In early November of 1967, two East Hampton High School students and one out-of-town boy visiting his grandmother decided to try to arrange for the Long Island Rail Road train to crash into the school. The school, at that time, was on Newtown Lane (it is the middle school today), and in a field just behind the school there were the Long Island Rail Road tracks. Every Sunday at 7:08 p.m., a very important-looking train, called the Cannonball, would come down the track from Montauk, heading west, filled with well-to-do passengers, and after stopping in East Hampton and the other stations in the Hamptons, would continue on nonstop to Manhattan. It made the trip in less than three hours. Just before it passed behind the school—it was hard not to notice this—there was a spur of track that went from the main line to just behind the Schenk Fuel Company, less than 100 yards from the school. On days when the train had a big oil delivery, the switch would be pulled and the train would go out the siding and the fuel tanks would be filled up. And so this was their plan. It was very simple. They’d go out there early that Sunday afternoon with a hatchet, break the metal pin that held the switching device in place, and pull the lever. Nobody would be in the school. Whatever came down after that, and it would be going about 40









miles an hour, would turn onto the siding. And that would be that. No school Monday! The boys tried mightily to break the pin with the hatchet, but failed. One went home and returned with a hacksaw from his dad’s basement workshop, and that broke it. Then they pulled the switch down. The train would veer off the track. Then all of them left. After they went to their respective homes, two of the three boys got cold feet. First, one returned and moved the switch back. Then the second returned and, not knowing the first boy had been there, moved it back the other way. A dozen or so waiting passengers were at the East Hampton station that evening, waiting for the arrival of the train. They peered down the track, and soon, around 7 p.m., the front headlight of the train, right on time, appeared way down the track, heading in from Amagansett. Suddenly, this light veered off into some trees. What had happened? On board the train, heading along at the expected 40 miles an hour, the engineer pulled up the throttle to begin slowing down the train for the station beyond. But then he saw the switch was the other way. He hit the brakes, but it was too late. The train turned onto the siding, bashed through the small stop at Schenck Fuel, and then slid onto the lawn heading toward the school. It plowed up about 40 yards of lawn, which piled up against the front of the metal cowcatcher, and it came to a halt—stopped by the pile of lawn—just 20 yards from the school. Four passengers on the train were injured. One of them, as it happened, was the wife of Walter MacNamara, the Chief of Special Services for the railroad, who every weekend came out with his wife to their summer home in Montauk. They were now attempting to return to Manhattan. But they never made it on this train. It took five days and $100,000 for the railroad to clear the wreck and fix the damage, during which time the three boys confessed to what they did. It turned out they were all 13 years old. A lot of detention was served during the rest of that year. How do President McKinley, Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders relate to the LIRR? Find out at

Beach Season: No Need to Get Bent Out of Shape By David lion Rattiner

It’s that time of year DAVID LION’S again—the good weather is here, winter is over and the Hamptons is the place to be. It’s oh so boring, isn’t it? It’s the same thing every year, always being the number one summer destination in the world, without question. People flocking to enjoy the best beaches, best restaurants and best, well, of everything. Ho hum. I guess it’s time to start getting ready, once more.

Bathing suits are also going to be a reality in the Hamptons shortly, and the endless battle of the belly bulge continues. After breaking my collar bone while skiing this winter, I was unable to do any physical activity for six weeks, which translated into my watching reruns of Seinfeld and listening to philosophy books on


The Body How to prepare for summer in the Hamptons: Step 1: Get on scale. Step 2: Panic. Step 3: Eat a quart of ice cream in shame. Step 4: Take a nap. Step 5: Go to the gym.

SummEr / Fall 2013

Summer can’t begin before your boat and body are ready.

my iPhone while my fiancé laughed at me for having a “broken wing.” Lately I’ve returned to the gym with what seems a simple but effective make-up-for-losttime strategy. Whatever I did before, I’m now doing double. Then I got up this morning, only to repeat steps one through five above. The Boat Last week I called about five different boatbottom painters, and none of them answered, so I started thinking about painting the bottom of my 25 O’Day sailboat myself. I have done it in the past, more paint seems to get on me than on the boat, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to die after having read how toxic boat paint is to the human body. But if I don’t get the boat ready before May, there will be other people enjoying their boats and I’ll still be stuck on land trying to attach the 8-horse-power Mercury engine to the back of the damned thing. And I can’t have that.

If there’s one thing about getting engaged that can have an unforeseen influence on summer, it’s how suddenly your fiancé decides that every piece of clothing you own looks awful on you.

This Week’s Cover Artist: Doug Reina My parents never pushed me. They were kind enough to let me make my own choices.

By Marion Wolberg Weiss


Is that the area where you usually paint? I paint from there to Montauk. My family has a house in Montauk, and I love to work there because my soul gets washed clear. Speaking of Montauk, did you ever want to be a boat builder or fisherman? I feel very blessed going outside. Nature is the best teacher I ever had. Being close to nature gives you a rich sense of color and natural abstractions. What else influenced you to become a plein air painter?

Reina has been painting full-time since 2006. He seeks to express what he feels through abstraction.

I was attracted to other plein air painters. I took their lead. I liked their style. Do you paint with a group of like-minded people? No. I’m an offbeat person. Where some people “zig,” I “zag.” But I do meet with some artists once a month, and we talk about art. I also take art classes from Stan Brodsky through the Art League of Long Island, where I get good feedback. I’ve grown so much from that class. How did your family encourage and/or influence you? My mother owned an art gallery, and my father was a sculptor, as I said. Being surrounded by art got into my system.

What other advice would you have for an artist just starting out? Go out and learn from anyone you can. Develop a sense of taste. See things and decide what you like and don’t like. What have you learned as an artist? I learned I wasn’t taking chances. I was doing safe pieces. Now I am doing offbeat subject matter, like an old race driver sitting among his cars. I want to combine landscape and abstraction. I’m good at looking at landscape and painting it, but I want to express more of what I’m feeling through abstraction. I want to take the skills of a plein air painter and put them into what I’m feeling. Doug Reina’s works will be on view at Greenport’s South Street Gallery (18 South Street), 631-477-0021. He’ll be having an exhibit at Greenlawn’s Ripe Art Gallery from May 10– June 1, 631-239-1805. See Reina’s images on his website


What was your inspiration for the cover image? My father [who is a sculptor] and I had a show last August at Ashawagh Hall, and this image, “Boatyard Pickup,” was in the show. I am a plein air painter, so I paint outdoors, and this boatyard was near Stony Brook.

You are now painting full-time. That’s a big step. How has that been? After going to Buffalo State for two years, I got the painting bug in the early 1990s. I’ve been painting full-time since 2006. I would tell anyone who wants to do that that it will take time. You may have heard that you have to paint 500 paintings before you get something good.


his week’s cover, “Boatyard Pickup,” is in many ways typical of Doug Reina’s work. First, it is realistic but somehow conveys an ambiance of “other worldliness.” Moreover, the truck in the foreground juxtaposed with water in the background provides an arresting context to the image. Reina’s frequent use of background-foreground compositions gives meaning to his pieces.

The “Well, I Don’t Like It” Building Commission By sally flynn

First, I want to go on record that I love my mother very much. I’ve known her for years and she’s as lovely and decent a woman as you would ever be privileged to know. However, Mother has a peccadillo about people changing the appearance of their home or yard without clearing it with her first. She’s a member of what I call The Shelter Island “Well, I Don’t Like It” Self-Appointed Building Commission. I understand there are many members in this

group, but they never meet because they can never agree on changes.

I never worry since the little lighthouses are only decorative and not actually guiding any ships into port. Not so for members of The Shelter Island “Well, I Don’t Like It” Self-Appointed Building Commission! What follows is not fiction. These are excerpts from actual conversations.

For example, there’s a very nice home down the road from her that has two adorable lighthouses flanking the driveway, one has a green light on the left (port) and the other has a red light (starboard). I just love it, so cute for a nautical theme. On the rare occasions when No more gnome sweet gnome on the Island Mother: “Oh, their one of the lights is out, green light is out. I wonder if they know it. They’re usually so good about that.” Me: “Don’t worry. I’m sure the next person who drives in will tell them.” Mother: “Well. how long will that be? Maybe you could write them a note and leave it on the door.” Me: “Don’t be absurd. They will eventually notice or be told that one of the lights has gone out.” Mother: “They should probably change the red light at same time since that one will go Waterviews, Turn-Key next.” Me: “I’m sure they’ll increase their vigilance Ready for immediate over the red bulb in anticipation of it going out Occupancy $529,000 next.” Mother: “Unless the red one went out recently and they already changed it and now it’s the April 27th & 28th green one’s turn to go out.” May 4th & 5th 1 - 3 PM Me: “There’s no need to worry, Mom, we won’t come home this way again ever.” Mother: “Don’t be sarcastic. And I like going 631.723.2001 home the other way better anyway. I love that two-story Victorian with the beautiful wall paper in the living room.”


Fast forward two days, we are driving home and passing her favorite Victorian house.


Mother: “Stop! Back up the car! Me: “What!? What is it?” Mother: “They took down the paper! They took down that beautiful wallpaper and painted the living room some kind of peach! It’s too peachy! I hate it! Why did they take down that paper? It was perfect!” Me: “Calm down. It’s their house, they can do anything they want.” Mother: “Yes, but they have sheer curtains, everyone can see in. Nobody’s going to like this color.” Me: “You’re killing me, Mom. Just close your eyes the rest of the way home.” Mother: “All right, but don’t drive by the gnome house.” Me: “Why not? You love those seven dwarf gnomes in the yard.” Mother: “They got rid of the gnomes.” Me: “What? The Sleeping Beauty gnomes? I love that set.” Mother: “They put up a shiny red ball on a pedestal.” Me: “Okay, I’m pulling in. If they still have the gnomes, I’ll try to buy them.” The Shelter Island “Well, I Don’t Like It” Self-Appointed Building Commission & No Kill Gnome Rescue Association lives on....

An Egg-cellent Journey Through Auto History the early 1980s. Audi has grown a lot since that mechanically flawed beauty. Audi race cars are currently sweeping up victory cups in world-class racing events, and all of their new models are winners in the marketplace. After the success of the Audi 5000, Ford followed suit with its lookalike four-door Taurus sedan and station wagon. Both runaway sales successes. So now we all drive oval-shaped cars with different grills and taillights. Maybe Dr. Porsche was onto something in 1939.

By bob gelber

Easter may have come and gone, but I’m still not over my egg fixation, or rather, egg-shaped cars. Maybe my mind has become scrambled (pun intended) by all the gasoline I’ve smelled over my automotive career, but let’s face reality, most cars really are starting to look like giant eggs. Especially if they are painted white. Remember those early post-war model 356 Porsches that first started to seep into American auto enthusiasts’ psyches around 1948? They really were eggs on wheels. I saw my first Porsche at the New York Auto Show in the late 1950s, and being a young Jewish boy born in the Bronx of Polish/Russian parents, I interpreted the Porsche nameplate as Borscht, which was a common soup in my family. For months I wondered why anyone would name a car after soup, and why on earth did those cars look so eggy? Of course, everyone knows now that Dr. Porsche made them appear so aerodynamic, that they looked as if they slid through the air. Which begs the question: Why don’t airplanes or rockets look like eggs? In fact, in reality, they really look like carrots. Have you noticed that most Porsches today are painted black? Those crafty German designers know that their little expensive toy cars still look like eggs, and if they were painted white, people would sneer at them. Dr. Porsche also created another egg-shaped beastie, but it looked like the hen had sat on the egg too long. It was designed around 1939 and was called the Volkswagen. The German workers who actually built the first Volkswagens had a name for it, the “Ugly Duckling.” Even the workers imagined subconsciously that the car was hatched from a duck egg. It is beyond belief that both these eggs, hatched in the ’30s and ’40s of the last century, still live on today looking quite similar to their original shapes. American car enthusiasts must like eggs. They certainly eat enough of them, usually with bacon or sausage. Perhaps the bacon and sausage is thought of as a Ferrari. Speaking of the Ferrari motorcars, Pininfarina, Mr. Ferrari’s designer of choice, was never really a fan of egg shapes. He devoured flowing lines—that is why Porsches and Ferraris have never ever looked alike (with the exception of their current racecars. Sadly, now it seems all racecars look the same...streamlined billboards on wheels). The Ferrari and Porsche marques are the two finest sports cars in the world, having won between them more international races than probably all the other worlds’ car manufacturers combined. A fine résumé indeed. What is truly amazing is that Porsche, in the early days, started out as an underdog in racing and was always considered a giant killer. Eventually Porsche grew to become huge—the maker of incredible racing cars, now formidable in all world events. Its reputation is one of an unbreakable egg. The sedan that started the current egg design craze is the Audi 5000, designed in

Technology As Both Impressive and Daunting By MATTHEW APFEL

I’m writing this on a Friday night. About 15 minutes ago, all the news channels reported that after an unprecedented all-day lockdown, the second Boston Bomber had been apprehended. Obviously, there’s a lot to talk about here. My first emotions were joy, relief and curiosity. Joy that the apparent bad guys were caught so quickly. Relief that two terrorists are off the streets. And curiosity about a million things: Who were they? Why did they do it? Were there accomplices? Another emotion that struck me was how inevitable the conclusion seemed to be. From the very first moment of the attack on Monday— with those incredibly powerful and graphic images being delivered in real time—you had the sense that with so many eyewitnesses, and so many smartphones and cameras, it wouldn’t take long to find the culprits. And on Friday, four days later, it appeared to be almost over—for now, at least. All of this got me thinking about technology, as always. The news media sort of picked up on this angle; many stories were written about what role the media played in what became a very public manhunt. But I think they got it wrong—it was social media, and technology, that helped solve this case in such rapid fashion.

Compare it to the O. J. Simpson chase, which was the last event of this nature to play out live in front of the nation. I was living in L.A. at the time, very close to the crime scene. I recall getting phone call after phone call from East Coast friends asking for play-by-play analysis of the neighborhood. The news media was on the story, of course, but the coverage consisted of a single video feed—the helicopter following the white Bronco throughout the freeways and streets of West L.A.—with talking heads narrating like a macabre sporting event. All that changed with the marathon bombing. There wasn’t a single feed of information or dramatic live video. Instead we accessed thousands of news channels, photographs and viral videos. Every local resident became a reporter. At times, it felt as if citizens on the streets knew more facts than the law enforcement officers or the throngs of professional reporters covering the story. Did you even watch TV coverage? I spent far more time on websites getting raw images rather than waiting for a news organization to curate. I imagine Twitter’s usage stats for the week were off the charts. Through a plethora of security cameras, police were able to quickly broadcast images of the suspects. They tracked their movements via phone calls and Twitter feeds. And this became a crowd-sourced manhunt where people on every corner could—and did—contribute. Even when the younger brother was finally caught, technology played a role: we saw

Many stories were written about what role the media played in what became a very public manhunt. But, social media had the biggest impact. images of infrared cameras depicting his body movements as concussion grenades exploded. Social media was almost too powerful at times. Police asked news media to stop broadcasting live positions for fear that the terrorists were monitoring reports to evade the chase. As empowering as technology was in helping to identify and apprehend the suspects, we can’t overlook the flip side: technology has made it so easy for any unhinged or angry citizen to cause sheer mayhem and devastation. Technology is so pervasive and well understood that two young guys with little-known military training were able to make powerful bombs using parts available at most hardware stores. While we don’t know how they learned to make their bombs, they could have easily downloaded step-by-step instructions from the web. That’s truly frightening. It’s impossible to turn back technology and pretend that bad people don’t have the means to do horrible things on a daily basis. But after following the story for a week, I took some comfort in knowing that technology will make it very difficult for anyone to get away with it. And that’s all we can ask for in 2013.

26.2 Reasons Why I’ll Run the Boston Marathon By kelly laffey

I will run the Boston Marathon in 2014. In light of this year’s tragedy, I think a lot of runners have the same determination to compete. Though I haven’t worked out all of the logistics of entering what is already a notoriously difficult race to get into, mark my words: I’ll be running 26.2 miles next April. Here are 26.2 reasons why: 1. Because marathon running is the only sport where no one boos. 2. Because it’s also the only sport where competitors are willing to literally pick each other up. 3. Because I’m inspired by Walter Stewart, Katy Stewart’s 88-year-old grandfather, who finished the Katy’s Courage 5K two weeks ago. 4. Because three of my former Wake Forest teammates finished this year’s marathon three minutes before the blasts went off. 5. Because there are plenty of opportunities for me to get base training in this summer— Gubbins will be hosting group runs, and I plan on being a frequent presence at area road races. 6. Because the mascot of the Boston Athletic Association, the group that puts on the marathon each year, is a unicorn. Legend has it that the unicorn was chosen because it represents an

ideal, something to pursue but can never be caught. That’s what running is like—an endless quest to push yourself to the limit. 7. Because the Boston Marathon is the oldest—and arguably most storied—annual marathon in the world. When choosing the course, organizers tried to mimic the terrain of the original path run by the Greek soldier Pheidippides from the Battle of Marathon to Athens. Hence Boston’s infamous hills. 8. Because Long Island is hilariously flat, whereas the Marathon course is definitely not. 9. Because my brother has run three marathons, and I have run none. 10. Because the day has its own name— Marathon Monday. 11. Because the Red Sox play a home game at 11:05 a.m. each year, and the crowds and players empty out into the streets in time to cheer on the runners as they pass Fenway Park. 12. Because father and son duo Dick and Rick Hoyt run it every year. Rick has cerebral palsy, and dad Dick pushes him in a wheelchair. The Hoyts have competed in 1,077 endurance events, including 70 marathons (2013 was their 31st Boston) and six Ironman triathlons. 13. Because Bill Rodgers, a four-time Boston champion, has indicated that he will come out of retirement to run it again next year. He’s 65 years old. (He will also run the 2012 Shelter Island 10K.) 14. Because Ann Curry tweeted about performing “26 Acts of Kindness” in honor of the 26 victims of the Newtown tragedy, and

#26Acts2 was soon trending on Twitter. 15. Because Sam Adams creates a 26.2 brew every year. And I want to taste victory beer. 16. Because—sorry Wake Forest athletic department!—I kept my uniform when I graduated college. And it needs to make its postcollegiate race debut at the Boston Marathon. 17.

Goat on a Boat Puppet Theatre Celebrates National Day of Puppetry

SAG HARBOR: The National Day of Puppetry is April 27, and Sag Harbor’s Goat on a Boat—one of only 50 established puppet theaters in the country—will be celebrating the fun, joy and magic of the art of puppetry. The festivities begin at 10 a.m. Families can enjoy a free puppet show, puppet making, old-timey tunes with Grandma Lulu and a puppet parade for kids who wish to dress up in their favorite costume. Visit for additional information.

Ride to Benefit One Fund Boston at B. East AMAGANSETT: This may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to wear a Boston shirt in New York and not get hassled. Put on your best Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics or Patriots gear and come ride at B. East Real Ryder Fitness Studio on Sunday to raise funds for the families affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. Money raised will go to The One Fund Boston, a charity formed in the aftermath of last Monday’s events by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino. The ride starts at 9:30 a.m., and participants can reserve their bike online or at the studio.

ORIENT: On Friday morning around 11 a.m., while Boston was on lockdown and police officers were searching the Boston metropolitan area for Suspect #2, people on the Cross Sound Ferry, which had left New London for Orient, alerted the authorities that someone who looked very much like Suspect #2 was on the ferry, carrying a backpack. The implication was he had fled the manhunt and would soon arrive on Long Island. Southold and Suffolk County police officers raced to the ferry landing at Orient, and waited for the ferry to arrive while others shut down the main road leading out to the ferry, Route 25. Officials at the nearby elementary school, Oysterponds, were advised to keep the students indoors until further notice, which turned out to be less than an hour. According to Southold Police Chief Martin Flatley, when the ferry docked around 11:20, the officers detained the man and took him to the police station in Southold for questioning. “He was fully understanding of why it took place. He was very cooperative,” the Chief said. The man turned out not to be Suspect #2. Nevertheless, officers continued to be assigned to the dock at Orient for the rest of the day and into the evening when, finally, Suspect #2, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, injured after a firefight, surrendered to authorities from his hiding place in a boat on the back lawn of a home in Watertown, Massachusetts. —DR

Sloppy Tuna Stands Tunited MONTAUK: Locals and visitors may be anxious to get ‘schloppy’ at the Tuna this summer, but the famous Montauk establishment has bigger fish to fry. Earlier this week, the oceanfront club’s iconic blue-green pickup truck fell victim to vandalism. And the Tuna, which has become known for its marketing genius, is not taking the situation lightly. “The Sloppy Tuna is offering an award of up to $5,000 for anyone that has information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the criminal in charge of this heinous crime,” says General Manager Abby Monahan. “In surveillance footage, a pickup truck appears to pull up in front of the Tuna, and the suspect is seen wearing a hooded sweatshirt, throwing paint thinner all over the truck and then driving away.” The incident occurred at approximately 4:20 a.m. on Tuesday, April 16. Along with a house little person named Randy Montuna and weekly goldfish races, the truck is a vital part of the fabric of the Tuna. “At least 45% of our patrons take a picture with the truck,” says Monahan. The homepage of the Tuna’s website even boasts “Ford in the front; Beach in the back; All-American bar.” A police report has been filed, and anyone with information on the crime is asked to contact the Sloppy Tuna at 631-647-8000. In other news, the Tuna is currently undergoing renovations to repair damage caused by Superstorm Sandy. Expect a completely rebuilt second floor, further capitalizing on the ocean views, and a retooled patio bar to afford more space for live entertainment when the club opens next month. “We’re all new and a little more swanky, but at heart…..just as Sloppy,” the Tuna posted on its website. #TunitedWeStand.

So much to see and do this weekend!

By nick chowske


n today’s consumer-driven world, it can be hard to find products, particularly clothes, that are made to last, and it can be even harder to find someone with the skills to keep them in good shape. Luckily, one East End business can help. For over 50 years, the Southampton Vacuum and Sewing Center has not only been selling and repairing vacuum cleaners and sewing machines, but they’ve also had an onsite tailor at their Riverhead location. “We do pretty much any repair that is needed— hemming pants or taking in a shirt, up to altering a wedding dress,” said Kelly Kossman, who manages the two stores that her father, Gary Kossman, owns. “I started coming here when I was little,” she said. “I would dust machines for $5 and then go spend it at the Fudge Company.” Kossman began working at the shop full-time when she was 19, and she has seen interest in sewing drop off. “Vacuum cleaners have grown to probably 90% of our business and sewing machines are almost nothing,” she said. “Nobody sews anymore. You can’t get the supplies...It just doesn’t pay.” With interest in sewing waning, there are fewer people who do it professionally. So, when Kossman’s long-time seamstress left the business suddenly, she had to scramble to find a skilled replacement. “It’s difficult because people just don’t know how to do things like that anymore,” she said. Kossman used a modern approach to find someone skilled in an

age-old profession. “I actually found most people on Craigslist,” she said. That’s how she met Jackie Rios, who has been working in the fashion industry for nearly 20 years. “She had an ad on Craigslist that [said] she wanted to make custom dresses,” Kossman said. “It’s one thing to have sewn your whole life, but to be able to sew professionally and give somebody a professional product is different. I actually went through a couple of people before I hired Jackie.” “I’ve always liked sewing,” Rios said. “It all started, because I am a petite size, and I always had a hard time finding things that fit right, so I just started fixing things myself.” Rios moved from the Dominican Republic to go to fashion school in New York, and then became a pattern-maker and a seamstress. For the last few weeks, Rios has been working with another skilled tailor, Rosanna Tromba, who helps out at the shop. “She’s the expert—she’s been sewing forever,” Rios said. “I love to do it,” said Tromba, who moved to Long Island from Italy. She started sewing when she was 14, and hasn’t stopped yet. “I was born in Africa, and my father used to own a leather-goods store,” she said. “In the afternoon, they closed the store, like a siesta, and I used to get the lining of the suitcases from my father to make pocketbooks.” The Riverhead location does a lot of business in alterations. “Many people come in to replace zippers,” Kossman said. “Or if they’ve gained or lost weight, and they don’t want to change their whole wardrobe, we’ll take things in or let them out.”

The Vacuum and Sewing Center does alterations for both wedding and prom gowns as well. “We do all kinds of alterations,” Tromba said. Unfortunately, even this specialized work now has to compete with a market full of cheaper alternatives. “It’s tough, because most people don’t want to spend a lot of money when they put a zipper in something or hem a pair of pants, but it takes a lot of time,” Kossman said. “It’s really a dying trade,” Rios said. “Less and less people want to even be bothered by doing anything.

A can’t-miss tale for kids

Openings, closings see and be seen.

Enter The Third Dimension


hen I heard there was a 3-D printer at the Ross School in East Hampton I was eager to see it. In the past few months talk of these marvelous devices has spread across different fields and industries. I make no pretense of knowing much about the latest inventions. As a college student I turned in many a lengthy essay on pen and loose-leaf paper– a failed Bradburian revolt against computers induced by a (since improved) personal ineptitude for typing. However, news of 3-D printers has made its way outside of the tech world. At the NYC Armory Show this year, Chelsea-based Winkleman Gallery featured works by artist Shane Hope made of 3D-printed PLA molecular models on acrylic substrate. Imagine a rectangular surface, covered in globs of multi-colored, highly ornate, sculptural matter. It’s the sort of quizzical artwork you want to closely examine. The artist used a 3D printer he built himself, outputting thousands of forms of PLA (polylactic acid, an archival form of plastic) then arranging these forms on a wall-mounted support. A few weeks before the Armory Show, The New York Times had an article in the Home section, that’s right, the section about gardening, interior design, etc., predicting that 3-D printers may become the home appliance of the future. Steven Kurutz’s “A Factory on Your Kitchen Counter,” began with citing President Obama’s State of the Union address: “In a lab in Youngstown, Ohio, the president said,

Innovation Lab, a special ‘Workers are mastering the intensive workshop for 3-D printing that has the advanced science and tech potential to revolutionize students, I was able to do just the way we make almost that.

Presently, 3D printers are program, like AutoCAD, that allows you to alter the used by architects to build models of skyscrapers—a size or design of the object.

Matt Weber on View at Harper’s Books By marion wolberg-weiss

Matt Weber’s exhibit of New York City scenes can’t help but be compared to other work by well-known street photographers. Two favorite photographers come to mind in this regard: Weegee and Helen Levitt. Both worked primarily during the 1930s and 40s, both were also filmmakers whose style we now call “social realism.” However realistic their images were, there was an intense acknowledgement of aesthetic qualities, particularly composition and camera positioning. Yet Weegee’s and Levitt’s works were different concerning subject matter. While New York itself became a character in their imagery, Weegee featured “outsiders,” mainly on the Lower East Side, including criminals. Conversely, Levitt photographed various neighborhoods where daily life took place, especially celebrating children at play and middleaged inhabitants in conversation. Weber, at least in his current exhibit at Harper’s Books, has no particular Manhattan “beat,” setting or subject. In fact, his individuals do not belong to a recurring gender, class or race. For example, several pieces feature affluent school girls crossing the street. Other images show African American boys loitering outside a pornographic movie theatre. Unlike Weegee’s work, there’s little juxtaposition between the rich and the poor, for instance. (Consider Weegee’s well-known photograph of wealthy ladies dressed in fur alongside a homeless woman.)

Perhaps the images do convey a message. The girls crossing the street, for example, evoke a sense of energy and movement. One picture demonstrates this in an arresting way where three people seem lost in their own worlds, hiding under their umbrellas or reading a newspaper. Another play on isolation is one of Weber’s most well-known photographs: The Trade Center exploding in the background on September 11, a mother and her child unaware of the disaster unfolding a few miles away. Privacy is another issue that Weber deals with: one image shows a policeman looking through a

restaurant window at a couple as he passes by. There seems to be no reason for this act; the pair seems more than decent. Just your typical middleclass urban residents having a bite to eat. Even so, not all of Weber’s work is somber. We could hardly miss the sexual implications provoked by a girl licking an ice cream cone as she stands near a billboard showing a shirtless man. Photographs by Matt Weber will be on view at Harper’s Books in East Hampton , 87 Newtown Lane, until May 20, 2013. Call 631-324-1131 for information, CORRECTION: In last week’s Art Commentary about The Drawing Room’s exhibit, the image that appeared on the upper right was work by Jack Youngerman, not Mary Ellen Bartley.

DINING GUIDE Yet we can’t fault Weber’s works because they are not similar to those of Weegee’s and Levitt’s. If they don’t initially provide a political/ social point-of-view, for example, that is Weber’s choice. Yet perhaps the images do convey a message, in their subtle way. The girls crossing the street, for example, evoke a sense of energy and movement. On the other hand, the boys outside the theater are static and bored. Is this Weber’s comment on the state of class and race in urban America? Weber may also be observing the white affluent class in another way: its sense of urban isolation.

A “Tail” As Old As Time By Joan baum

It’s hard to believe that the children’s book The Unfinished Dragon (CreateSpace) and the two sequels it spawned, Camembert and Brie, have had only a kind of underground existence, making their way by word-of-mouth or through a chance meeting with the author, Richard Lawless. Lawless is also an artist and he lives in East Hampton. The charming Edward Sorel-like illustrations that adorn the books exhibit a wit, whimsy and grace that match the prose. The stories, delightful and clever, exhibit an intuitive understanding that good children’s narratives invite a willing suspension of disbelief while touching seriously—but softly—on themes of loss and dread. Lawless also provides a soupcon of levity for knowing adults who are likely reading along with their young charges. They’ll recognize the occasional nod to them, as when a hawk named Sid tells Camembert the friendly dragon that he used to be an agent, but was miserable, had stomach trouble, finally got out, and now is “free as a bird.” The Unfinished Dragon (26 pp.), the first in the series, shows from the start its literary age-appropriate bona fides. It begins dramatically with Camembert’s father, Bertram, an old warrior dragon, commanding his young son to “Breathe fire!” Next paragraph: “I can’t.” Lawless knows his fairy tale myths, Oedipal and otherwise, and how to use simple diction and reigning clichés to critique gently the expectations of contemporary culture. The father, a dragon of great repute, tells his young son Camembert that

he expects to retire, wants to fish, sail, play golf, swing in the hammock, but “how can I ever stop touring and signing autographs if my only son can’t carry the torch of Dragonhood…the family flame?” Alas, Camembert’s a pussy cat, so to speak, unlike typical fire-breathing dragons and certainly unlike the dragon toughs he sees hanging around playing hooky and showing off their red hot flames. He likes to write poetry, and he fears that because he’s different and doesn’t want to scare enemies or frighten little children, he’s a loser. He doesn’t want to be like his father, but wants his father to like him. The old warrior expects compliance. Camembert’s mother Beatrice, though more understanding, is lovingly cavalier. As he leaves to practice fire breathing in the desert, she calls after him that she thinks he’ll make a fine tennis player. Camembert slinks off, but cannot do the flame thing. Meanwhile, dragon-slayers arrive. But so do friends. These include Sid, the hawk, and also a coyote and an ant, all of whom instinctively take to Camembert, seeing his good heart. Lawless uses these reappearing diverse creatures as a unifying device as well as a sympathetic Greek chorus, signaling that Camembert is not alone. Well, of course, there’s a turning point but it’s not a simple-minded one. After much practice and

perseverance (kids, there’s a lesson here), Camembert breathes fire. Does he ever! He can’t stop. It becomes excessive (kids, there’s a lesson here, too). He comes home anyway to show his parents his accomplishment, but alas, they are gone—death in the story is nicely finessed— Bertram and Beatrice have become mountains. Now Camembert really comes into his own, as does Lawless— The Little Dragon That Could takes nourishment from the stars and becomes a dragon whose exhalations are colors of the rainbow, glorious colors and different shapes, different qualities, some with music. In a later story, when Camembert is himself old (and wise), the theme turns on the universal quest to be special, which Lawless relates to the uniqueness of being the only one of one’s kind, as are we all as individuals, and so we are each extra-ordinary. It’s unlikely that a young ’un will know what “camembert” refers to, and maybe some older folk won’t know more than the fact that it’s the name of a cheese, but such is the book’s appeal that it prompts a click onto Wikipedia where camembert is described as a “soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow’s milk cheese,” first made in the late 18th century at Camembert in Normandy, and that it resembles brie. Now of how many children’s stories can it be said that they prompt research!

perhaps that is changing. With Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron.

Movies... Hot Flicks This Week The Big Wedding A farce set among the well-meaning but frequently morally compromised upper classes, The Big Wedding has a somewhat far-fetched set-up. The long-divorced Don and Ellie Griffin (played by Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton) are forced to pretend to be happily married for the sake of their adopted son; you see, their adopted son is getting married and his devoutly Catholic birth mother is coming to the big wedding. Once you get past the implausibility of wealthy people doing anything they don’t really want to do, there’s a lot of hilarity to enjoy, provided by veterans Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams, along with Katherine Heigl and Topher Grace. At Any Price In Hollywood, farming is usually depicted as a noble and ennobling vocation, with rugged, hard-working guys on tractors struggling against THE MAN. This movie may very well change that, presenting modern agriculture as the big business it truly is, run by cunning business interests who know how to squeeze dollars from the soil as well as from the federal government. In At Any Price, the head of an agricultural empire wants his son to get into the business, but his son would rather become a racecar driver. In the old days, audience sympathies would have been for the farmer—but

Pain and Gain There’s nothing quite as funny as inept criminals. Based on a true story, action-comedy Pain and Gain follows the criminal misadventures of a trio of knuckle-headed muscle men. Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg), stuck in a dead-end job as a personal weight-trainer, devises a scheme (based purely on what he’s seen in movies) to kidnap a rich, but sleazy, customer and acquire his assets. He recruits gargantuan ex-con Paul Doyle (Dwayne Johnson) and co-worker Adrian Doorbal (Anthony Mackie) for his nitwit plan. Of course, the victim, played by Tony Shalhoub, does not take kindly to his abduction, and the three plotters wind up in a world of hurt that they can’t get out of. Arthur Newman Love blossoms on the road to Indiana. Or so it claims in the online blurb for Arthur Newman. It does not indicate which road to Indiana one should take, but perhaps that doesn’t matter. It seems Wallace Avery (Colin Firth) has had enough of being Wallace Avery, and so he adopts a new identity—Arthur Newman is his new name—and hits the road to Terre Haute to start life over as a golf pro. But when he comes across Michaela, who goes by the name “Mike” and is played by Emily Blunt, she isn’t fooled by his false identity. Of course, like all women in films who decide to fall in love with strange men who are just passing through town, “Mike” has some secrets of her own. “Mike” and “Arthur’s” personal journeys, as symbolized by the road trip they now share, become intertwined, and love blooms on the road to Indiana.

Meet world-renowned dance instructor Oscar Gonzalez



Achieve your dream beach bod with Dr. Covey

Zumba! With Oscar Gonzalez By marianna scandole


umba! Everyone knows what it is, but apparently the term has no official meaning. This exercise dance craze has been sweeping the nation, but East Enders don’t have to travel far to take a class with world-renowned, certified, licensed and accredited Zumba and dance instructor Oscar Gonzalez. Gonzalez is Costa Rican native who has been a national/international fitness instructor, professional dancer and choreographer for over 20 years. I took his Zumba class at the Wellness Institute in Hampton Bays. I have taken a few classes with other instructors before, but this… OH BOY! It was like having fun in a nightclub, rather than killing myself in a fitness class. The typical florescent lights were replaced with pulsating colors and pumping music. Gonzalez encourages us to keep up the energy and fun by serenading and periodically dancing alongside each student. As someone who doesn’t regularly exercise, I did not feel intimidated as some other classess make you feel. It’s fun, it’s sexy, and it’s an incredible workout! Gonzalez’ students lined up anxiously waiting to give me their insights into the class, all giving glowing reviews. “Oscar is the best! He’s fun, professional, and really knows his stuff!” “He’s not just an instructor, but a friend as well.” “[He is the] inspiration I need to stop procrastinating, and come exercise.” “Coming here is fun, and [alleviates] my stress.” Not surprisingly, I soon found out that everyone

knows and loves Oscar. His name is synonymous with “Zumba.” Gonzalez came the U.S. 13 years ago not knowing a lick of English, but he found himself teaching fitness classes in a gym and continued to progress from there. “I knew that I knew English when I started dreaming in English.” Denise Freda, Gonzalez’ manager, relates “His upbeat personality and incredible energy are infectious. He’s unique in what he does, and does it with all his heart. [It’s got to say something that] I drive out here twice a week from Westchester just [to train with him.]” Gonzalez says, “This is the time to [be free.] It doesn’t matter if you have talent, just have fun.” Not only can this man dance like no other, but he has an effervescent charisma and talent and compassion to spare. Gonzalez has been a personal trainer for celebrities such as Christie Brinkley, and the Personal Trainer contributor for Time Out NY, Weight Watchers Magazine and Cosmo Radio on Sirius and the Cosmopolitan website. He was also a master instructor at a Self Magazine event in Central Park for 10,000 attendees, and he has danced professionally and choreographed for major companies including Coca-Cola, Absolute Vodka and Miss Latina Hamptons. Gonzalez works with several charities including

the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Joan’s Arc Legacy and Mercy First to promote their missions. He finds it especially rewarding to have worked with local high schools to choreograph their musicals. His talent has spread all the way to Europe, where he has toured in Austria, Hungary, Belgium and Italy. And, Gonzalez even designs and builds the structure and props for his annual haunted house, which he has operated at La Maison Blanche on Shelter Island for the last two years. “My goal is to see smiles on everyone’s faces at the end of the class. I end every class the same way—by saying ‘Thank you. God bless you. You did it!’” The buzz is all about the new class location for the summer. The Resort at Bath and Tennis in Westhampton Beach will host a Saturday class from 9:30 a.m.–10:30 a.m. Enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean in every direction during your workout, grab a bite on premise and then head straight down to the beach. You can join Oscar’s Zumba parties at the Wellness Institute in Hampton Bays on Tuesdays from 7 p.m.–8 p.m., and at the Dance Centre of the Hamptons in Westhampton on Thursday from 9 a.m.–10 a.m. and 7 p.m.–8 p.m., as well as Saturdays from 9 a.m.–10 a.m. Check out for more info.

Dr. Covey Offers New Cosmetic Treatments By robert sforza

ith beach season swiftly approaching, men and women are beginning to think about their bodies and their bathing suit images a little bit more. Doctor Alex Covey, a cosmetic surgeon who is board certified in cosmetic laser surgery and medical director at East End Laser Care, has brought three new aesthetic treatments to the East End that are minimally invasive or pain-free and will give you that dream beach body. Trying to banish cellulite has long been one of women’s Sisyphean struggles. Previous remedies like caffeinated creams or massage with laser therapy— sometimes costing thousands of dollars—could make bumpy skin look smooth. However, these fixes were always temporary because they did little to tackle the structure of the cellulite. “Cellulaze is the Gold Standard,” tells Doctor Alex Covey. “What separates Cellulaze from its predecessors is that this procedure addresses the structure of the cellulite.” Genetics, along with aging and other factors, can cause connective tissue bands under the skin to stiffen and the fat cells they surround to become larger and push up into the skin, causing that “cottage cheese” effect. A common misconception surrounding cellulite is that being overweight makes you more prone to developing it as one ages. “That is false,” corrects Dr. Covey. “Diet and exercise don’t have anything to do with cellulite.” “Cellulaze is unique because it uses the first sidefiring laser,” describes Dr. Covey. This allows for the thermal energy to break up and stimulate skin cells and the hardened fat deposits, allowing the overlying skin to smooth out. Cellulaze

daily tasks. Another new cosmetic treatment is Exilis, which affects body shaping and tissue tightening. However, what separates Exilis from many other cosmetic treatments is that it is one of the most advanced nonsurgical solutions for transforming aesthetic appearance. “Exilis works by using a monopolar radio frequency, which melts the fat through the skin and then tightens the skin,” explains Dr. Covey. “This treatment allows the collagen support tissues under the skin to remodel and tighten, resulting in firmer skin and a reduction in fatty deposits. Since the fat is melted through the skin, Exilis is entirely nonsurgical and painless. There are no incisions and anesthesia is not necessary. Typically, there may be four additional treatments after the initial procedure, which can be complete as often as every week. “One of the benefits of Exilis is its ability to target the proper amount of energy with the ideal combination of heating and cooling to achieve the best cosmetic outcome while keeping patients comfortable and pain-free,” says Dr. Covey. Those interested in learning more about these new cosmetic treatments can contact Dr. Covey or visit his Lunch and Learn seminar next month. Dr. Covey will be discussing these treatments in further detail in this new cosmetic procedures seminar on Saturday, May 4, at 11:30 a.m. at the Southampton Inn.

also works by tightening up the skin. “The Cellulaze treatment is minimally invasive, with a tiny incision strategically located only the size of a pen point—2mms—and is done in a single treatment,” adds Dr. Covey. Many of us have heard of or know someone who has undergone liposuction. However, now there is a more advanced body sculpting laser liposuction technique available on the East End. SmartLipo Triplex is a laser treatment Dr. Covey that virtually melts fat cells, which are then suctioned away, with some of it removed by the body’s lymphatic system. “SmartLipo is great because it only needs a tiny incision and is laser assisted, which allows for several key advantages over traditional liposuction,” tells Dr. Covey. “One advantage with the SmartLipo is that the laser melts the fat, which allows the use of instruments thinner than a pen,” continues Dr. Covey. “There are no stitches with the SmartLipo and all incision marks are strategically located. For example, if it’s the abdominal area of a woman, we can hide the tiny incision mark in the bikini line.” Another advantage of using SmartLipo is that the laser itself tightens the skin, leaving no loose skin. “The laser energy interacts with the collagen in the skin which later causes the skin to tighten and shrink,” explains Dr. Covey. Perhaps the last measure of persuasion that lures participants to the SmartLipo treatment is its swift recovery time, which is quicker than traditional liposuction. If you feel up to it, you can even go to work the following day, depending on your job’s

Is it just me or are there a ton of wedding and baby showers this season? Even in my small circle of friends, I’m finding myself off to these events left and right. My mail, which usually consists exclusively of useless coupon booklets and LIPA bills, now includes the occasional very pretty envelope with my name printed fancifully on the front. What’s exciting about this is that aside from getting to see your nearests and dearests, there’s the opportunity to get creative with gift baskets! While I can’t speak for the bride, as a bridesmaid who recently cut open an ungodly amount of cardboard boxes in record timing, let me tell you– a basket with clear cellophane makes lives easier. Even with registries, it’s easy to put together something requested with something you thought of on your own. If you’re putting together a gift for a baby shower, why not start with something that perhaps the momto-be hasn’t thought of, like a summer-themed basket with all-natural skin protection from babyhampton? I recently stumbled across this amazing line of sunscreen at Second Nature Market in Southampton. Waiting for my Green Goddess juice to be ready,

I was browsing the skincare aisle (obviously, for location across the street from the Driver’s Seat on what else does one do in a health food store?) Jobs Lane. The charming shop is filled with vintage looking for a mineral-based sunscreen for myself. French furniture, handmade pillows and one-of-kind It’s not easy to find something that is paraben-free, shell encrusted mirrors, picture frames, lamps and chemical-free and unscented.

Warmer Waters Bring Wide Variety of Fish By george holzman III


Spend a day on the water, and bring home a local catch.

water is world-renowned for its top-notch fishing potential. You’ll find many different species here but the most famous include fluke, striped bass and weakfish. The Block Island Sound, which covers from Montauk to Block Island, is often known as the ‘Bermuda of the North’ due to the fact that a huge variety of fish start to migrate up north when the waters start to get warmer, including striped bass, bluefish, fluke and other species. “In order to go fishing, you don’t have to necessarily spend a lot of money. If you’re not a commercial fisherman, there’s no need to spend hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars. If you’re looking to go fishing with your friends or family an inexpensive pole will do just find. It’s about having fun and spending time in the outdoors with the family. “In certain spots you’ll be able to get bluefish. You can actually get them right off of the canal in

Hampton Bays. Bluefish are actually snappers that become full-grown adults. They have a very distinct and fishy taste that has to grow on you.” No matter where you are on the Island you’ll be able to get some delicious and healthy fish. So take advantage of the nice weather and have a Sunday out with the family while catching a big one. Though fresh fish can be a quick trip away, now that the water will be warmer, you’ll be able to get the treasured wild salmon once again. This can be purchased at your local seafood market. This fish originates in the icy waters of Alaska and is favored by many consumers over the Canadian farm-raised variety. The wild fish have a strong, bright orange tint to the meat because of their varied diet. For more info, check out East End Bait and Tackle, 170 E. Montauk Highway, Hampton Bays, 631-728-1744

ow that the cold weather is finally over, you’ll see a lot more people out fishing during the day and night. I just got my pole from Target in Riverhead without breaking the bank. Your local fishing supply store offers bloodworms, smelt and other bait for only a few dollars, but you don’t have to buy bait. You can find crabs, worms and clams in the sand near the shore. When I was little, we used to go to the ocean and dig for clams in the mud with our feet. You’ll find cherries, little necks, steamers and even chowders. I’d recommend the little necks because they aren’t too big and are easy to get on the hook. I stopped into my local fishing store, East End Bait and Tackle, to speak to owner Captain Scott Jeffrey to see what people are going to be catching and where the best fishing spots are located. Jeffrey told me, “There’s a huge array of fish that can be found on Long Island, you just have to know where to do the looking. These include: weakfish, blackfish, bluefish, porgies, summer and winter flounder, striped bass, cod, tuna, marlins and sharks.” The south shore of Long Island, which includes Jamaica Bay to the Great South Bay, has the widest variety of fish. You can find weakfish, fluke, winter flounder and blackfish in the bays and estuaries around that area. False albacore, or little tuna, striped bass and bluefish migrate along the coast during the warmer seasons too. “Out of all the different types of fish offered, most people tend to go for either fluke, salmon or tuna. They are the most familiar to people. There are other types that are delicious too, though.” Next is Fire Island. This area is roughly 32 miles long and covers from Hampton Bays to Islip. This

Gardens Allow Loved Ones to Live On By jeanelle myers

The Sergeant Cherry is blooming outside my window. We planted it as a memorial to my father-in-law. He’d been a policeman, and although he’d been a Deputy Inspector, his nickname included the word “sergeant.” He also liked cherry trees and this one is tall and sturdy just like he was. The blooms are lovely, though short-lived, and unlike other cherries, rather reserved...also just like he was. When my grandmother died, my cousin sent me some peony roots from grandmother’s peony patch. She had no flower garden, like many farm women, just peonies and tiger lilies, which I will also plant when I can keep deer from my garden. They were rejuvenated upon digging and are blooming like young things. They remind me of her. I have bearded iris from my sister’s garden, purple and white…her favorite colors. Our mother collected iris varieties by trading with other women, and she accumulated 40 different kinds. Flowers were special, almost frivolous in my small town, but the iris was one of the popular few. Because my mother had so many different kinds, ours were

could count on her for hints about vegetable growing and, as she was from Switzerland, she would often tell me “how they did it in Europe.” She had house plants that she tended with care and she never saw a flower she didn’t like. I should make her an Alpine garden. I made one for a client in a very large, low bowl-shaped pot that sat in a perennial bed. Once planted and established, it was easy to maintain and quite interesting. After I get my garden tamed again, that’s what I will do. She had also lived in Africa and appreciated exotic plants. She gave me my night blooming cereus! I will do some careful thinking to honor her. For gardening discussion you can call Jeanelle at 631-434-5067.

special, and we loved those big, blousy flowers My sister was quite sick before she died, but on a good day she took comfort dividing the thick growth of this iris, knowing that would help them to bloom the next year. I have divided them once, yielding more plants. They need to be divided again. This time I will have enough to share with a friend who also likes bearded iris. I like knowing that this small token of my sister carries on in my garden.. The flowerbed outside of my bedroom window is a memorial to my mother, a great gardener who wasn’t hesitant to try new plants. I planted things I knew she liked and some that I think she would. There are three David Austin roses. I think she would love their big “gooberous” flowers. There are two of grandmother’s peonies and some bearded iris. They are a delicate blue and I know she didn’t have this variety. At one point, I saw a butterfly maple and knew she would like it. The small tree I planted has grown slowly over the years to become a focal point. Small species tulips hug the ground trying to hide from the deer. She liked tulips—hers had fragrance!—and these are her favorite shade of red. A memorial garden dedicated to one’s mother requires an angel and there’s one there. She liked cats—so there’s a cat in this bed. A very good friend of mine died this last week. I will put a plant in the garden for her. Though she didn’t have a garden while I knew her, she had gardened extensively in younger days and had two pots on the front steps that she planted and really enjoyed. I

Where to save while dining out

Restaurant Review: The Coast Grill


oo often I coast right by the Coast Grill on Noyac Road—but my husband and I popped in on a recent Sunday for the works. “The works” beginning of course with some Coast Grill signature cocktails: a Key Lime Pie Martini for moi and a “Don’t Call Me Old Fashioned” for Husband. Why not start dinner with “pie”? This one, composed of Stoli vanilla vodka, pineapple juice, fresh lime and simple syrup garnished with coconut, is light and not terribly sweet. Husband deemed his “Not” of Maker’s Mark, bitters, orange and cherries muddled over the rocks, “Nice. Not too sweet.” Good start. We were tempted by the ultimate in bar food— truffled Parmesan shoestring fries, which we observed are served piping hot—but we pushed on to appetizers. I ordered a special, the Thai Spiced Shrimp Chowder. So good—I ate every morsel and drop of the coconut-y, somewhat spicy mélange of spinach, chives, potato, asparagus, carrots, mushrooms, diced red pepper and scallions over udon noodles. “Curry fumé” means it has a delish, lightly smoky flavor and the presentation was gorgeously colorful. I saved the noodles to slurp down last. At the suggestion of our server Marsha, Husband eased into dinner with a glass of Channing Daughters mellow Chardonnay. Husband took in a “Nothing But Crab Cake.” There is more to it than crab, namely sweet pepper aioli, it’s

I went with a standard, kind of a burger patty of crab Roasted Free Range Chicken. with no breadcrumbs. Frenched and so moist, the We shared an appetizer chicken topped a generous of “Always Seasonal Grilled serving of North Fork baby Artichoke” which was spinach and horseradish nicely, lightly charred and smashed potatoes. With its accompanied by crisp-tender rosemary jus, the meat was asparagus spears, shaved deeply delicious. Reggiano and balsamic vinegar. For dessert, hmmm, the We found the Coast Grill Crème Brûlée DuJour was notably friendly to little ones. Coffee…and the Chocolate We didn’t bring any along Espresso Cheesecake but an active little girl at the beckoned…but Husband next table was cooed over ordered the Toasted Pound by the staff as she sat in a Cake with fresh berries, high chair and ate a selection whipped cream and crème of her “Annabelle snacks,” Anglaise drizzle.

A we try the rabbit—it did sound sizeable wedge, its almond good but we just weren’t in a Local Asparagus with Prosciutto di Parma graham cracker crust melded “rabbit mood.” Husband followed his initial sea creature with well with the intense lemon flavor.

Delish Foodie Books By stacy dermont


weekend of travel by ferry and van has helped me to whittle away my stack o’ foodie books... I eat omnivorously when I review restaurants but my family keeps vegan at home. Works for us. What’s next? What’s still more stringent than veganism? How about a raw diet? I didn’t think it was for me but I read Kate Magic’s Raw Magic, Superfoods for Superpeople (Process Media) nonetheless. It was every bit as colorfully loopy as it sounds (The woman’s name is “Magic,” after all.) But it makes some strong arguments for going raw—the strongest being the photo of a bikini-clad

There are a few weeks left to practice cooking some crowd-pleasers before the season hits! Kate Magic. I don’t know of any other chef who could run a photo like that and keep things appetizing. Magic looks great and she clearly has a sparkling attitude. She often effuses things like, “There are certain foods that when you eat them, your body is in heaven, your cells start singing, your mind becomes ecstatic.” She convinced me to try preparing some recipes with Spirulina…we’ll see how it goes. This book is focused on the more unusual raw foodstuffs. Most of the recipes in this book are pretty simple to prepare and Magic has young children— so many of her recipes appeal to kids. Magic and this book come to us from Jolly Old England— long a hotbed of veganism and raw eating. The

book is endorsed by none other than Boy George! The Urban Homestead, Your Guide to SelfSufficient Living in the Heart of the City by Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen (Process Media) has changed my life. I’ve ordered copies for some of my favorite people. My “homestead” is in Sag Harbor Village but this book has taught me so much! How to plant, how to can, how to start sour dough, how to save energy. I mean, I thought that I knew how to do some of this stuff already but this book takes such a holistic, no-nonsense approach I was floored AND IT’S REALLY FUNNY! The ethos is “stick it to the man so you can do your own thing and still have time to drink at your local bar.” Right on. Thank you Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen— when the zombies come my family will be ready! (Though, in the mean time, we’re going to hold off on the whole “humanure” thing.) Pies, Glorious Pies: Brilliant Recipes for Mouth-watering Tasty Pies by Maxine Clark (Ryland Peters & Small) is a gorgeous little tome with photos by Steve Painter. Just the thing to drool over when planning the traditional Memorial Day blow-out. Herein a master pie maker reveals her recipes—several different crusts, of course— and techniques. She’s English, she knows from pie and she has all the vintage pans and pie birds and whatnots. As a pie baker, I didn’t expect to find much new information but Clark brings together the different pies worldwide— pie, torta, beef en croute, tourtiere, koulibiaca, puffs, pithiviers, pasties, empanadas, samosas, tarts—all in one place. Very handy, though my attempt to make a vegan version of her Keema

Splendid Spring Greens and local farm stand openings planned, the best is yet to come.

By silvia lehrer

My grass is greener than I could ever remember—no doubt due to April showers, as we’ve had a fair amount. Yet green is more than a beautiful lawn— it’s everywhere—from green energy efficient products, to the “green” canvas bags being carried into supermarkets and specialty stores to carry out our groceries, to kitchens that are going completely green with “green” materials from floors to counter tops. Yes, we all want to do our part to save the planet and to save ourselves—and one of the best ways is to simply eat local and to eat “green.” The cool green colors of watercress, zucchini and leek combine to create a splendid do-ahead “green” soup. Leafy green artichokes can be enjoyed in a variety of ways—trimmed; cooked whole and presented at table shaped like a flower and served with a piquant dipping sauce; delectably stuffed Italian style. But have you had them braised in a sweet and sour sauce? This recipe with roots in Spain is sure to please. With warmer days welcoming the spring harvest

WATERCRESS, LEEK AND ZUCCHINI SOUP A splendid “green” soup. Serves 6 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 2 to 3 leeks, thoroughly washed, about 2 cups thinly sliced 1 1/2 pounds narrow zucchini, peeled and diced 5 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade or low sodium canned Kosher salt to taste and freshly ground pepper 1 bunch watercress, stems removed 1/2 cup of half and half 2 tablespoons minced chives 1. Warm oil with butter in a large saucepan. When butter melts and foam subsides, add the leek and zucchini and stir to mix. Cover with a square of wax paper to sweat the vegetables for 6 to 7 minutes. Uncover, discard paper; pour on stock and season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, add watercress, adjust heat and cook at a brisk simmer for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool. 2. Purée the soup directly in the same pot the soup

cooked in with a hand immersion blender or in batches in a blender. Return to rinsed-out saucepan, add half and half. Reheat over low heat, taste for seasonings and serve with chive garnish. BRAISED SWEET AND SOUR ARTICHOKES This intriguing dish has roots in both Spain and in the South of France. Trim the artichokes carefully as they cook a short time and must be tender enough to eat entirely. Serve as first course. Serves 4 1 lemon 4 small or 8 baby artichokes 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 medium onion, thinly sliced 1/3 cup water 2 tomatoes, preferably on-the-vine, peeled, seeded and diced 1 bay leaf 2 to 3 sprigs fresh thyme Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 2 teaspoons lemon juice 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar 2 teaspoons sugar 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley 1. Fill a bowl with fresh cold water. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice from one half into the water. Put in the squeezed lemon half as well. Cut the stems of the artichokes to about 1/2 inch from the base. Break off first two rows of leaves from the base and discard, then bend back and remove as many rows as necessary to arrive at the tender inner rows. Cut about 3/8 inch off the artichoke tops and discard. Peel the artichoke bottoms and stems, rubbing the

Beautiful homes sold this week.

Bargains on the East End.

Let Expert Andrew Lieb Guide You


here are many factors to consider when renting or purchasing a home or commercial property—legal regulations, financial terms and the overall investment. Attorney Andrew Lieb and his team at the Lieb at Law P.C. firm, help to guide their real estate clients toward making the right choices for their long- or short-term property investments. Whether you’re looking to purchase a home for the first time, invest in a vacation property or start a new business, they offer a plethora of details to review before making that final decision. The more you know, the more profitable the outcome.

When it comes to purchasing a home or commercial property, it’s key to know all the details for zoning in your area. In addition, Lieb’s sister organization, The Lieb School, offers accredited continuing education courses to licensed New York real estate agents, brokers and attorneys. With his years of experience and expertise, Lieb leads the way in an enormous industry by optimizing all available platforms. From writing compelling and informative articles in The

New York Real Estate Journal, Suffolk Lawyer and Homes of the Hamptons to his weekly blog, Lieb teaches both aspiring and seasoned professionals the importance of knowing the legal guidelines of real estate on local and state levels. Since the devastation of Superstorm Sandy and its impact on many summer vacation areas, the Hamptons is ready for what may be a recordbreaking season ahead. Rentals are up, hotels are quickly being booked and the East End is already buzzing with excitement. Whether you’re renting, returning to your summer getaway or visiting for a week, the Hamptons provides the perfect playground for rest and relaxation. And, if you’re one of the savvy investors who had the insight to purchase a home to rent out each year during the high season, I don’t think you’ll have much trouble this summer. Lieb informed me that there are a range of different rules and regulations specifically pertaining to rental properties and it’s important for landlords to abide by these laws. In essence, each town or village sets certain standards that they wish to maintain to protect both homeowner/landlord and tenant, as well as the neighborhood. “I’ve had many calls over the years regarding problems with tenants and landlords and if the homeowner does not have the proper permits in place, it makes it very difficult to move forward from a legal standpoint,” Lieb said. Inquiring at your village or town hall is the best way to make certain

you’re following local laws. It’s always better to be safe than sorry—protect your property. Don’t forget about purchasing the proper homeowners/ renters insurance. When it comes to purchasing a home or commercial property, it’s key to know all Andrew Lieb the details for zoning in your area. If you’re interested in waterfront property, these areas follow separate zoning laws. This is where a well-educated and experienced agent and lawyer will provide you with all the answers—Can I build a pool? A tennis court? What kind of homeowners insurance should I have? Flood insurance? Without full disclosure and the proper permits, that dream home with breathtaking waterfront views may not be your dream home after all. Lieb’s firm and sister school offer insight, tips and valuable knowledge. Lieb at Law’s mission is to serve as an indispensable advisor to their clients by helping to minimize risk, maximize profitability and aggressively litigate with leading solutions. Lieb School—bridging the gap between the people and businesses that develop our communities. LIEB ensures license law compliance at its sister organization, Lieb School. For more information on the Lieb School or to contact Andrew Lieb, please visit or call 631-878-4455 (with offices in Center Moriches and Manhasset).
