The most coveted item in the Hamptons is the East Hampton Main Beach sticker. From time to time, people have made forgeries of them. We know this because sometimes people get arrested when cops find these forgeries on the windows of their cars. Last Wednesday, a 68-year-old man was arrested for offering a forged ticket to the attendant on the Hampton Ambassador luxury coach as he rode in style to the Hamptons. He had a pocketful of them. Police led him away. The Hampton Ambassador ticket is right up there now with the Main Beach sticker. As you know, Dan’s Papers is often hit up by the forgers. It’s in a class by itself. Look closely at your copy. Hold it up to the light. Only accept an orginal. -- DR

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

The H amptons Subway Newsletter Week of May 10–16, 2013 Riders this past week: 10,812 Rider miles this past week: 114,872 DOWN IN THE TUBE Painter Julian Schnabel was seen coming down the escalator at the Montauk station and then turning around and heading back up again without going anywhere. 50-MINUTE DELAY IN SOUTHAMPTON A procedure completely not in our maintenance manual resulted in a shutdown of the entire system for nearly an hour during the morning rush hour last Tuesday. The employee responsible was suspended from work for two weeks as a result. All maintenance on the system is done during the hours the subway is closed between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. However, P. T. Hippelmeyer, who is assigned the job of changing burned-out ceiling lightbulbs, is afraid of heights. Changing the lights on the platforms did not prove to be a problem with his short ladder. But reaching

the elevated ceiling height above the tracks was a big problem. Hippelmeyer solved this by secretly developing his own procedure. During the day, when the trains were full of people and he was off-duty, he would run into a subway car stopped at a station and hoist himself up through the interior roof escape hatch while the train was idling. Standing on its roof, he could reach the lights and change a burned-out one in less than 10 seconds. Then he would come back down and exit the car just before it would leave the station. Last Tuesday, however, he accidentally locked himself out up on the roof. He went up, the hatch slammed shut, and, hearing it click, he knew he had a real problem. He would be killed in the low-ceiling tunnel as soon as the train left the station. As a result, he began stamping on the roof to get everybody’s attention. The commotion resulted in people pulling the emergency cord, and that stopped the train. Commuters urged him to jump off the top of the car to the platform, but his fear of heights froze him up there. It took nearly an hour for Station Security to arrive and, using a ladder, go up and bring him down with a fireman’s carry.

NEW MARKETING THRUST WORKING New Marketing Director John Applewhite is crowing to everyone about the successful results of his marketing campaign. The campaign is “See the Sights of the Hamptons, the Beaches, the Windmills, the Subway.” Ridership is up. It climbed more than 1,000 riders in this, the first week of the campaign. It usually does rise as summer approaches, but this year Applewhite takes credit for it. WEEKLY AWARD Every week, our Commissioner makes a special award to one department or another resulting in there being “Subway Division of the Week.” This week’s award goes to the Hamptons Subway Security Department for their daring rescue of a man stuck atop a subway car in Southampton. HARRIET BELLWEATHER GIVEN FAREWELL PARTY Harriet Bellweather, who delivers the interoffice mail on the metal-wheeled cart every day, was given a farewell party in the company cafeteria Thursday afternoon, complete with a cake. Her job is being phased out now that everybody is using the internet. Bon Voyage, Harriet. COMMISSIONER BILL ASPINALL’S MESSAGE Commissioner Aspinall filed no report this week. He is in North Korea, the guest of the Premier, there to study whether Hanoi should have subways, and he is not allowed to communicate with the DansPapersAd_July12.pdf outside. 1 7/27/12 4:00 PM

MOVING VIOLATION After a woman took her husband’s Porsche out for a spin and subsequently drove the car into the bay in East Hampton near Lazy Point, sinking it. Police responded to a scene that included the sunken Porsche and the screaming driver. After she was rescued, she allegedly told police that she’d deliberately accelerated the Porsche while driving toward a ramp that lead into the bay. She was charged with drinking and driving. No word from the husband about her driving his cars in the future.

ALL TERRAIN VEHICLES A house watcher in East Hampton called police when she spotted men driving ATVs on the property of the home she was watching. Police arrived and the woman told police that she would not press charges but would find out if the owners of the home would want to. The ATV drivers protested that notion, stating that their vehicles were “All Terrain.” And “we take that literally,” they said.

SHELTER ISLAND Four kangaroos, three African zebras, one elephant, four Bengal tigers and two male lions escaped the Shelter Island Zoo last week after protesters for the Shelter Island Organization of Animal Rights Activists deliberately let them loose. An estimated $27,000 in damage to private property resulted after an elephant sat on and crushed a 2013 Fiat. The animals were rounded up, thankfully, by Old Man McGumbus, 103 years old, Captain of the Shelter Island Rugby team and former World War II chemical warfare specialist. McGumbus, using a powerful sleeping agent, cleverly spread the chemical through Shelter Island’s water supply, thus putting nearly every living thing on Shelter Island to sleep. McGumbus then hogtied all of the animals and brought them back to the zoo before the island woke up. “I got the idea from when we sacked the Nazioccupied island of Osikapackawaka in 1949, except back then, we just poisoned the water.” SALTWATER SYSTEM A saltwater pool system was stolen from a home in Water Mill. Police are on the case, but in the meantime they advised the homeowner to jump into the ocean. Read more Hamptons Police Blotter and get your exclusive Old Man McGumbus updates at

Weather Lingo Torrential, Pitty Pat, Cats and Dogs, Sideways, Tropical, Misty, Driving Rain By DAN RAttINeR

that could be dangerous if caution is not taken.


WEATHER WARNING: Dangerous hazard is imminent or happening.

he National Weather Service was awakened with a start after a tornado roared through Joplin, Kansas two years ago, killing 161 people and destroying thousands of buildings. They had issued an alert that it was coming and had urged everyone to go underground. Few people did. “Nothing in that warning really stood out that said ‘this is a lot higher risk than a typical warning might be,’” said Weather Service official Mike Hudson in the aftermath of that tragedy. As a result of this event in Joplin, it was decided to revise the wording of the alerts that the Weather Service issues. Doing so has become an ongoing process. If you are someone who looks at the weather alerts on your TV screen—and here, especially in the hurricane season, we all do—then you know them. For those new to our area, here they are, together with official definitions of what they mean. WEATHER WATCH: A potential for a weather hazard, with some factors, such as location or timing, uncertain. WEATHER ADVISORY: Potential for conditions

Dan's Banner Clocks_Layout 1 5/18/12 9:44 AM Page 1

These warnings have been around for many years. Indeed, before that there were no warnings at all. One recalls many a black-andwhite western where a farmer would put his hand out the window and say, “Waal, it looks like it might rain.” In those days, officials predicting the weather were laughed at. They were almost always wrong. It’s a historical fact that nobody even knew the great Hurricane of 1938 that devastated Long Island was about to hit. So now the Weather Service is making preparations to bring nuances and change to the weather alerts, and is doing it region by region. The alerts that work in an area where tornadoes are prevalent might not work in an area where hurricanes are prevalent. To that end, they asked, when the time came, for local residents to submit ideas online for them to think about. They did that in the Midwest after the catastrophe in Joplin, considered the suggestions, and then began rolling out the new alerts a few states at a time. They instituted them in Kansas and Missouri. (Continued on next page)

Weather (Cont’d from previous page) They will shortly institute them in Wyoming, Colorado, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. After that comes us. For the month of March, a website where you could as a citizen add your comments for the Northeast was open, but it was not well publicized. I only read about it a few days ago while leafing through an issue of Newsday. And now it’s closed down. I would have liked, frankly, to add my own thoughts to the conversation. So now that I can’t, I can only do it here and just hope that they see it. We here in the Northeast, particularly in recent years, have gotten a really wide variety of nasty weather. It’s no longer just hurricanes and nor’easters. In the last five years we have had tornadoes, earthquakes, high winds and flooding. It would be hard to tailor an alert for our area. On the other hand, with the advances in weather forecasting science, which have been terrific, I think the new alerts could be laser sharp. It’s one thing to have hailstones, it’s another to have hailstones the size of baseballs, which we had last year for a brief time, though, thank God, nobody got hurt. Here are a few that I would have proposed if I had known about it. WAIT ATTENTIVELY—Keep your eyes and ears open. Something is coming. We’ll tell you more when it firms up.

BE ON YOUR GUARD—Assume a prizefighter’s pose. Keep looking around.

WEATHER JOY COMING—There’s going to be a rainbow or some other neat thing. Or a flock of flying penguins.

WEATHER CAUTION—Slow down, there’s slippery roads ahead with fog, black ice, deer darting across the street, tree limbs crashing down and a motorcycle cop waiting for you.

WEATHER FIASCO—Several weather fronts collided, but not in any way like we thought they would. WEATHER ONSLAUGHT—Things have been pretty quiet for the last few days, yes? Well, all hell is about to break loose. FALSE RUMOR—That terrible thing you heard was coming, well, it wasn’t from us. It isn’t coming. WEATHER OUTAGE—Someone pulled the plug on the National Weather Service. When we find them, we will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. WEATHER OUTRAGE—Something we’ve never had before, something nobody has even thought about, is coming. WEATHER INFESTATION—It could be locusts, the red tide or sleet, but whatever it is, it’s going to happen for a long time, stay, and be hard to get rid of. WEATHER PRANK—Some kids tried to do

WEATHER EMERGENCY—It’s so bad we don’t even have time to tell you about it. Just open the Bilco door and get down in the cellar. Now. WEATHER FLATULANCE—A big group of weather fronts came together and all the air went out of them all at one time. It wasn’t a fiasco, it was just loud. WEATHER MUGGING—The danger today is that the weather is going to jump out from behind a bush and steal your watch, your wallet and your cellphone. DEFCON 5—Put your head between your legs and kiss your ass good-bye. ALL CLEAR—Whatever you were doing before we sent you that earlier alert, the danger has passed and you can start doing it again.

War of Words Using a Whole Lot of Words That Could Have Been Said More Briefly By DAN RAttINeR


ake a look at the sign posted at a construction site that I have pictured above. It gives you information upon which you can take action if you wish, and it gives it to you in English and Spanish. What’s interesting about this? You will notice that the information takes up many more words in Spanish than it does in English. Maybe it just takes a few seconds more to read. But sometimes a few seconds can be crucial. For

example, what if it read, in English, “Look Out for the Falling Piano.” You would look up and then jump out of the way. But a Spanishspeaking person would not get to look up so fast. And that might make all the difference in the world. I have developed a theory about this. I don’t know what else to call it. I can’t prove it, so it is only a theory. But it seems to me that there may be a correlation between the amount of words it takes to say something and the prosperity of the society.

For example, in the Americas, the Englishspeaking countries are thriving. The same is true in Europe. Those speaking English are much more advanced than those speaking Spanish or Portuguese or Italian, which are other languages that take a lot of time to say something. I confess to not being able to be much help in proving my theory. I don’t know any other languages very well. (I did study beginner French in high school and then took a test in college to see if I could (Cont’d on next page)

Rebellion Against Nefarious Landscaper A

pril 15 was a very bad day for Mr. Sneiv. Not because it was Tax Day, but because I got a very disturbing letter in the mail. It was from my landscaper, who has been tending to my yard ever since I moved to the Hamptons. So what was in that letter that was so bad? Tucked between two pages of mumbo-jumbo about the escalating costs of fuel, materials, etc. was the declaration that as of May 1, my monthly bill

was going to be increased by 5%. I immediately said to myself, “In this down economy, they shouldn’t be raising their fees— instead they should be lowering them so they don’t lose customers. Landscaping isn’t even a skilled profession.” I picked up the phone to offer up my complaint, but got nowhere. I was going to have to pay the extra 5% or find a new landscaper. I told them that I would call them back. Angry, I went outside to gather my thoughts

and survey the yard. Maybe I didn’t need a landscaper at all. My Southampton lot is only ¾ of an acre and I could easily do the work myself. And with the money I would save, I could finally take Karen on that trip to Italy. So I hit redial, and the separation of landscaper and yard was made official. I have to admit that I was pretty excited about the whole affair. I jumped in my Mercedes and headed out to buy a lawnmower. “With a yard that size, you need a (Continued on page 34)

Little did I know that this inability to master foreign languages would one day prevent me from proving this new and provocative theory. Trop mal. So what is it with French? Well, my experience with maple syrup cans and other imports from Canada, where they have a law that says things

made in Canada have to be written in both English and French on the label, shows that English is slightly shorter. It’s also true the French are slightly behind the Americans. Think about this. All day, every day, we use language. We spend an overwhelming amount of time doing it. Perhaps half our time is in talking back and forth. It makes perfect sense that, if over and over again it takes us longer to communicate with somebody, then we are at a disadvantage. Consider a war—for example, the SpanishAmerican War. Theodore Roosevelt is down at the base of San Juan Hill with his Rough Riders. He yells “Charge!” and by the time the Spaniards up at the top can react, he has overrun them. They are still talking to one another about

Well, maybe I have said too much about this theory already. I’ll probably be accused of being racist. As I said, I don’t speak anything well but English. But before we go, let’s look at some of the other countries that have done really well. Japan, for example. Again, I don’t know the language, but they have haiku. This is where you write down just a very few characters, maybe 20 or so, and it bespeaks an entire complex thought that can move people to tears of joy. Then there is Russia. They aren’t too shabby going into space with us. Listening to them speak to one another, the meanings come out in short bursts. I betcha they could say what that sign says in half as many words as we can. And I’ll bet in Chinese, it’s even less. I do think that German is an exception to my rule. They are highly civilized. Yet their language is complicated and tedious, with some words 18 letters long. Gesundheit, for example. But I bet that for “Okay, everybody fire at the aliens,” they have one single but very long and complicated word. I’ll ask my daughter about it. She’s lived in Germany and has a command of the language.

A door opens and an alien walks down some stairs. The President is on the scene. He says, in English, “Welcome to Earth. I am the leader. We are a peaceful people. Come and share our world with us.” And the alien looks at the President funny, raises a mandible and looks at a device strapped to it and says “GLYRCK,” and immediately a beam goes out and vaporizes the President. Just that one word does it. So then the American army—didn’t I tell you the whole army was behind the President?— begins giving orders to one another. It’s gonna take a few seconds. But there aren’t a few seconds. “GROAPBRY,” says the alien, and immediately beams go out from not only the flying saucer there in the field to vaporize all of the soldiers, but from flying saucers in space hovering overhead to vaporize all the military aircraft everywhere.

A Free Gift EH Town, Following What We Do at Dan’s Papers, Offers Employee Jackets By DAN RAttINeR


ast week, East Hampton Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson said he felt so proud of his town employees, he wanted to give them all a gift, with his compliments. It would be a fleecelined jacket with the Town Seal on it and the name of the employee stitched over the heart. Initially, he had hoped this would be a surprise, he said. But then someone pointed out he would need to ask everybody what size they wore and what official “name” they wanted stitched on the jacket. So it couldn’t be a surprise. It wouldn’t do to have something ordered in size XXXL for Sluggo, only to find out that Sluggo was actually the loving nickname that everybody called the lady in the Town Clerk’s office who was a size six. Frankly, the negative reaction that greeted Mr. Wilkinson’s proposal came as a great surprise to us. Taht’s because we here at Dan’s Papers have had a terrific improvement in work output since we bought company jackets for everybody who works at the paper. We have a morning muster. We have a bugler play “Reveille.” At the end of the day we have our daily staff meeting, where we give out medals to well-performing employees for that day and send them home after reciting the Pledge of Allegiance (to Dan’s Papers). Once a year, we give promotions to good employees, which include an extra gold chevron to be worn on the sleeve above the ones already there. Some people have eight or nine chevrons. Fistfights have all but disappeared from the halls of Dan’s Papers. Even loud shouting has fizzled out. The number of births in the office has dramatically improved from years gone by. As a result of this success, there’s been an idea we have discussed from time to time, where we consider paying to provide jackets from Dan’s

Papers profits to various people you find in the Hamptons, so you could tell which group they belonged to. Red would be for the celebrities. You’d easily be able to see that that person who looks like Seinfeld or Madonna really is Seinfeld or Madonna. Blue would be for yachtsmen. Green would be for the wealthy, old money set. Tan would be for the clammers, surfcasters and other locals; orange and pink would be for the twentysomethings, and camouflage would be for the environmentalists. There’s a lot that can be said for knowing who is who in the Hamptons. And all can be sartorially equipped at a tollbooth at the crossing of the Shinnecock Canal bridge. For a fee, of course. In any case, regarding town jackets, many of those East Hampton employees, including some of the town board members, were not overwhelmingly enthusiastic about the Supervisor’s idea to give employees matching jackets out of the goodness of his heart (and out of the taxpayers’ pocketbooks). The reasons seem simple. For one thing, Mr. Wilkinson had spent four years cutting and slashing both at the payroll and at the supply office in order to get the out-of-whack budget back into balance—an extraordinary feat that kept the town from bankruptcy. So there would be many people—in addition to the 200 town employees—who had once worked for the town and now no longer did. And everybody knows who these people are who wouldn’t be getting jackets, because this is a small town. So this would be an “I’m Still Here But You’re Not” jacket, in spite of the Supervisor’s good intentions. Another thing was the cost. Wilkinson said that 200 jackets would be just $30 per jacket, so the total would be just $7,000, which wasn’t very much for a town this size. But others said

this cost was nevertheless $7,000, a completely unnecessary cost. Ms. Overby, a town board member, commented that maybe the money should be put toward paying for clothing for just a few employees—for example, the Sanitation Department, which had not been provided with new clothing since 2010. Think about that for a minute or two. Others wondered how the Supervisor could do such a thing without a vote of the whole five-member town board. And then there were people who thought the Supe was just a single step away from requiring that all town employees wear the jackets while at work, which they really didn’t want to do, since it would just make everyone look alike, like they were at a McDonald’s or something. One person told The East Hampton Star he thought perhaps there would be a GPS device secretly stitched into each of the jackets so Wilkinson could keep track of where everybody was at all times. Whatever the reaction, Wilkinson liked the town jacket idea. He said he had already gathered up the sizes and names of all town employees, except for the Town Planning and Budget office employees. Maybe he could proceed to follow up on this at the next box lunch informal board meeting. If you think about it, Mr. Wilkinson, who came on board here to save the day (and did, like it or not), was formerly in real life a Human Resources Executive at Walt Disney, in charge of personnel, who are—as we all know—from mouse ears to white tap shoes, all dressed up in uniform. So it is not surprising he would come up with this idea as a sort of perk for everybody. Shouldn’t they just love it? “I don’t know how the residents would feel about employees that don’t want to wear a town jacket,” Mr. Wilkinson told the Star. “That bothers me.”

Sneiv (Continued from page 31) riding lawnmower sir” the salesman informed me. “And if you are new to this game, you are probably going to need a few other items such as a weedwhacker, spreader, chain saw, electric trimmer, rake, shovel, edger, etc. Oh, yeah—you are also going to want a book on landscaping— here is a great one, only 400 pages.” Over $6,000 later and I owned a brand-new, hunter green riding lawnmower and everything else that one would need to take care of a lawn. Right after I finished paying, I found out that they don’t deliver riding lawnmowers. However, the salesman, told me that coincidentally they were having a sale on small trailers. Shortly thereafter, I was also the proud owner of a brand new trailer. Unfortunately, this all took place before I was informed by the service

technician at my local dealership that they could not put a trailer hitch on my Mercedes 550. Luckily, the nearby Ford dealer was able to put me in a genuine pre-owned F-150 Pick-Up Truck that already had a hitch attached, for only $12,650 plus tax, title and license. They were even nice enough to let me leave my Mercedes on their lot, until I could come back and get it the next day. So I hooked up the trailer to my new truck, loaded up my lawnmower and other implements and headed home. On the way, it dawned on me that I didn’t have a place to store my beautiful new lawnmower. In the past, there was no need for a storage shed because the landscaper always takes his lawnmower and gear with him when he’s done.

Oh well, I would figure that out tomorrow. Still, I have to admit that I was feeling pretty good about myself. In a single day, I had procured all that was necessary to keep my yard in pristine condition. Best of all, I had not let some greedy landscaper take advantage of me. I proudly pulled into the driveway, with all my yard stuff in the truck bed and the shiny new lawnmower sitting atop the trailer. Karen was waiting at the door. She had a contemptuous look on her face. Seems that while I was gone, she had been looking at our landscaping bills from the past. “Did you know that we have not had an increase in our landscaping fees for the last three years?” she asked. “Also, I was doing some calculations, and a 5% rate increase is only $20 per month” she added. “What’s all this stuff and where is the Mercedes?”

It all went downhill from that point on. I realized that in the excitement, I had spent almost $20,000 on yard-related stuff. How could we ever afford to go to Italy now? To make matters worse, that night I began reading about the complexities of yard care. It wasn’t as simple as I thought. How would I know what time of year to trim the various trees in my yard? When should I fertilize? What if I have extensive defoliation, shoot dieback or twig death? How about blight or even a fungus? I hadn’t ever heard of brown spot or dry patch plaguing, so how would I know if that’s what I had? And how much should I water? How could I figure out how to set the water timer when I can’t even figure out how to set the record function on the DVR player? I was now in a cold sweat. Turns out that landscaping is a very skilled profession. And did I mention expensive? If my former landscaper is reading this, please come back—I will double the increase to 10%.

he old bell tower at the St. David African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Zion Church in the Eastville neighborhood of Sag Harbor may be soon ring out again. A local Boy Scout, Dana Harvey, a senior at Pierson High School, plans to earn his Eagle Scout badge by organizing, fundraising and leading the way toward restoration of the bell tower. All this before his 18th birthday arrives this August. “That bell tower has literally not rung in 25 years,” says Pastor Thomas MacLeod of the Sag Harbor United Methodist Church. “I am really hoping this can highlight some of the history of the church…and reunite the community.” The St. David African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church was founded in 1840 to serve people of color in the Sag Harbor area, and it became an anchor for the growing neighborhood of Eastville. Its cemetery was founded in 1857, across the street, and is currently under the stewardship of the Eastville Community Historical Society. The old church remains a symbol to many on the East End, as the embodiment, the legacy, of the working class and the community of African Americans of the 19th and early 20th centuries who helped build Sag Harbor. St. David A.M.E. Zion Church was built by blacks and Native Americans in the area, many of whom were sailors working in the Sag Harbor whaling industry. Reverend John Thompson, the first minister of the church, was known as an outstanding scholar and a strong abolitionist, and it’s believed that St. David’s Church was actually part of the Underground Railroad. There is reportedly a tunnel (now filled in) running from the first floor of the rectory to the church’s pulpit, which was used by runaway slaves. Although Thompson became an A.M.E. Zion Bishop in later years, he and his wife continued to keep Sag Harbor as their permanent residence. Pastor MacLeod’s congregation found a temporary home in St. David’s A.M.E. Zion Church in 2010, after they sold Sag Harbor’s Methodist Church and before they opened their new church on Carroll Street. The pastor gave young Harvey the restoration idea when he needed a community project for his Eagle Scout badge. It was kismet for Harvey, who already has an interest in architecture and construction (both his parents are architects) and plans on earning his own degree in engineering after high school. When Pastor MacLeod introduced Harvey to the task, Harvey didn’t know much about the bell, the tower or the A.M.E. Zion Church, but the young man persisted with the project nonetheless. Around the middle of last year, Harvey, his parents and MacLeod went to survey the dimensions of the bell tower and to see if the rumors of the bell’s having been sold off long ago were true. Unable to reach the tower from the inside, the group was able to make their way up to the cupola through a louver from the roof. Not only did they discover that the original bell was still in place, but it was preserved in near perfect, operable condition. In addition to the Eagle Scout project, Harvey

also plans to restore the cedar shingles on the roof of the old church, a secondary task that underscores the scope of the commitment the Boy Scout has made. He plans to raise $30,600 for the church’s makeover, but his efforts will clearly go well beyond bringing in monetary resources. “I chose the old church because I wanted to do a big project,” says Harvey, who earned approval from the Sag Harbor Village Historic Preservation and Architectural Review Board.

Community Preservation Fund Up, Real Estate Follows By DaviD lion RattinER


n 1998, the towns of East Hampton, Riverhead, Shelter Island, Southampton and Southold obtained from the New York State Legislature the right to create a real estate transfer tax of 2% of every real estate transaction that takes place in the respective areas. The legislation was widely supported by East Enders who were concerned about too much land development occurring here. This one-time tax that the buyer of real estate is required to pay has been credited with being one of the most successful land-conservation programs in existence today. “I don’t think it is an exaggeration to say that the CPF has been the single most important tool

in maintaining the rural character of the East End,” says Assemblyman Fred Thiele Jr. (I-Sag Harbor) of the Community Preservation Fund. “The fund has been essential to insuring that conservation could keep pace with the flood of development that has occurred on the East End over the past decades.” Here on the East End, one of the most important indicators of the real estate market (not to mention valuable forms of tax revenue) is the CPF, which is a transactional tax on all real estate deals in the Hamptons. If the fund is up, that means more deals are being made. If the fund is down, of course, then fewer homes changed hands. “The CPF has been a very accurate indication

of the health of the East End real estate market, particularly the high end of the market, which generates the bulk of CPF revenue,” says Thiele. A look at the numbers indicates there’s some very good news to report. For the first quarter of 2013, revenues for the CPF were $20.23 million, which is a whopping 92.7% higher than the first quarter a year ago, when $10.5 million was collected. Also of great interest, March 2013 revenues totaled $4.19 million, compared with $3.77 million in March of 2012. According to these latest results, the CPF has grown substantially compared to last year. In terms of actual transactions, the number in the first quarter was 2,164 compared with 1,459 a year ago; the increases were caused, in part, by tax selling. Thiele states, “The substantial increase in 2013 revenues has been driven by an extraordinary one-month total of $11.13 million for January 2013, which appeared to be driven by year-end closings in response to federal tax changes. However, revenues for both February and March of 2013 were also higher than those months a year ago.” A large portion of the remarkable overall increase came from the towns of East Hampton and Southampton, where the jump in revenue for the CPF was 106.1% and 88.0%, respectively. The CPF also covers transactions in Riverhead, Shelter Island and the town of Southold, areas in which there was also growth, though fewer transactions overall. For example, on Shelter Island, just $80,000 worth of revenue was recorded in 2012, versus $670,000 in 2013— the increase, mathematically, is an impressive 737.5% for the area, but represents just 3% of the total revenue. Regardless, the numbers mean more money can be used to preserve the East End and keep it beautiful. Since its inception in 1999, the Peconic Bay Regional Community Preservation Fund has generated $798.88 million, and nearly 10,000 acres have already been preserved, including space at the Wölffer Estate—which contains 115 acres of farmland located in the Village of Sagaponack, preserved in 2001 in partnership with Suffolk County—102 acres of the West Neck Hill preservation in Southampton, and more than 230 acres of barrier island beach and wetlands. Although the selection process is long when it comes to determining what to preserve and how much money to apportion, it’s also straightforward. “The properties that are on each town’s CPF project plan are selected by the Town Board, upon recommendation of each town’s CPF Advisory Committee,” Thiele explains. “The advisory committees are citizens with expertise in land and preservation. The committees are there to insure that parcel selection is merit-based and not overly political. The plan must be approved as a local law, after a public hearing.” As for current properties of interest for potential preservation, “each town has a CPF project plan that lists the properties that are eligible and of interest. There still remains substantial work to do to complete these plans,” Thiele says. “In addition, it is anticipated that historic preservation will take on increasing importance as the amount of remaining open land to be preserved dwindles.”

A Simple Bridge to a Simple Paradise on the east end


he Post Lane Bridge crosses the Quogue Canal, connecting the Village of Quogue with Dune Road, on the barrier island to the south. A bascule drawbridge, built in 1940, it is only 170 feet in length, with a vertical clearance of about 15 feet, unopened. There’s a small station for the lone bridgekeeper, not unlike a turnpike tollbooth. Approximately 1,700 to 2,000 car crossings occur each day, and bridge openings are much rarer events. It sits roughly halfway between Quogue’s Penniman Creek and Ogden Pond, and the canal itself terminates at Quantuck Bay to the west. Quogue Canal essentially is a link between Shinnecock Bay and Moriches Bay, trafficked almost entirely by pleasure boats.

Nobody is speeding when they reach the bridge, and if I slow up a bit to admire the view, there are no unpleasant consequences. The bridge was built as a replacement for Beach Lane Bridge, which was destroyed in the Hurricane of 1938. That storm also breached the barrier island between Hampton Bays and Southampton, creating Shinnecock Inlet. It’s a sturdy, unprepossessing little bridge as bridges go, with nothing like the dramatic scale and

sweep of the Ponquogue Bridge, but it’s my favorite, by far. This is my love letter to...a bridge. I’m drawn to the seaside, as so many of us are on the East End, and my beaches of choice lie between the Quogue and Hampton Bays sections of Dune Road. This is the East Quogue stretch, a sparsely developed couple of miles with unspoiled wetland preserves, stunning views of Shinnecock Bay, and a handful of lovely ocean beaches that are never crowded.

You may have read elsewhere that the new restaurant Fresh will open at the old Southfork Kitchen site in Bridgehampton in June—but in fact chef/owner todd Jacobs and his staff are opening the former Southfork Kitchen’s doors this weekend! Expect a “brighter” interior and the best local produce and seafood that the East End has to offer. In fact, much of their produce comes from Dale & Bette’s Farm, just a stone’s throw from the restaurant. Media preview dinners were held earlier this week and word on street is “Great!” It’s “on” in Sag Harbor this summer. Muse in the Harbor Chef/Owner Matthew Guiffrida and Dan’s Papers “Hamptons Epicure” columnist and food critic Stacy Dermont will soon be locked in a battle of the taste buds. While Guiffrida plans to start canning his savory “Gramma G’s Cupolitina” for resale this summer, Dermont continues to “jam” local apples and berries. Both purchase their jars at the Sag Harbor Variety Store and have taken to plying the store’s staff with jarred goodies. Who will win this war of yum? Only Linda at the cash register can decide. Rumor has it that Stacy slipped her a tenner…See Stacy’s latest review of Muse on page 38.

there’s Nothing Like a Handmade Altenkirch Fishing Pole By GeoRGe HoLzMAN III


n the East End, fishing is a way of life. Many men and women make their living by going out day after day in local waters, and countless recreational fishermen cast their lines in the hope of maybe landing a tuna, fluke, striper or one of the thousands of other different species of delicious and beautiful fish that fill the bays and ocean. Regardless of your level of expertise, why be satisfied with the regular fishing poles that are sold at Kmart and Target? Based right here in the Hamptons, Altenkirch Precision Outfitters has been offering top-of-the-line handcrafted fishing poles since 1930, and all are sure to last a lifetime.

recently sent out some poles to Saudi Arabia to a Shah. I also sent out 26 rods to Panama for a floating lounge. I deal with customers from all over the world.” Users of Altenkirch Precision Outfitters poles will find themselves in esteemed company. Some of the famous people who’ve fished with them through the years include Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Ernest Hemingway, Steve McQueen, Roger Waters, George W. Bush and Billy Joel. Pro fishermen and captains use them as well, including world-record holder Steve Sloan. As the summer approaches, “the stand-up tuna rods and shark rods are selling great,” Hank says. But before you go and order a pole of your own, you have to ask yourself a few

questions: What do you want to catch? Where are you fishing? What lures are you using? And what’s your glove size? These are all crucial inquiries you must answer before choosing the pole. If you’re into tuna fishing, for example, you’re going to need a strong pole. But if you’re just fishing for fluke, your pole doesn’t need to be too heavy. The team at Altenkirch Precision Outfitters can help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Why settle when you can get a top-of-theline handmade custom fishing pole—especially when you’re fishing in the Hamptons? For more information, visit or call 631-728-4110.

By using the latest technology and the finest materials, they can create vintage reproductions and state-of-the-art stealth fighters. Their selection includes trolling, wire line, stand up, bottom, bait casting, fly fishing, sailfish, small marlin, jigging, spinning and children’s standup fishing rods. They also sell accessories including lures, coolers and clothing, but it’s the custom-designed poles that have built the name of the business serving the local community for four generations. In 1929, company founder Charles Altenkirch sold the family gravel business in Bayside, Queens in order to open a garage in Hampton Bays. He was an avid fisherman who chose to use his own handmade rods, and soon a business was born. In 1938, after the great hurricane, he started making offshore rods, and in the 1940s he produced rods for the famed clothing company Abercrombie & Fitch. After Charles stepped down, his son Mickey took over the family company, and he raised it to a whole new level by using fiberglass in the poles. The goal was to ensure that they would not rot and deteriorate or take on a permanent bend, although the internal construction remained the same. Mickey’s sister Miriam, also a well-known fisher, got involved with the making of these fishing poles as well. Now Hank Altenkirch, Mickey’s son, is the one making the poles and keeping the family business alive. He has changed his father’s fiberglass poles to ones with Lamiglas, Boron and Titanium, and they have earned their international repuation as the best of the best, in addition to being incredibly durable. “We sell a lot of bottom fishing poles for black fish, sea bass, fluke and stripers,” notes Hank. “I

It’s finally been made York City’s DAVID LION’S official—New stop-and-frisk policy is now in effect in the Hamptons. The policy so far has been widely successful, according to the Hamptons Mounted Police Department (HMPD), and thanks to the compliance of all citizens from “Montauk to Westhampton.” Stop-and-frisk, which has been widely criticized in Manhattan, is largely not a problem AGEFOCUS_MOMSDAYAD:Layout 1 5/6/13 5:14 PM for the wealthy folks living in the city, since for


the most part it seems that the policy has been enforced more in the poorer areas of New York. But here in the Hamptons, where the rich are everywhere, there has been less discrimination. The HMPD was given the authority after a town meeting last week. Officials passed the resolution nine votes to three, and since the policy has been implemented, more than 6,000 random police searches have taken place in the Hamptons. The pat-downs could be seen on Main Street last week in Southampton, where the HMPD stopped a man who was dressed in all white, which was highly suspicious, considering that it was before Memorial Day.

was frisked and questioned, and he was completely compliant during the incident. “Anything to help protect both myself and the area that I vacation in,” he said. “I didn’t mind at all being asked to stop in the middle of the street and have police officers frisk me for wearing white clothing before Memorial Day. It was my fault, I should know better.” Police subsequently arrested Biggsbottomline because he had prescription pills in his wallet. He said that he must take the medication every day and keep it with him at all times, but because he was unable to immediately prove that fact to the police, he was brought down to the station and held until his wife drove down with the prescription bottle from the couple’s home. His court date is July 2. A woman, also wearing white before Memorial Day and thus looking suspicious, was stopped and frisked while walking her poodle in Herrick Park in East Hampton. A Hamptons Mounted Police Department officer took control of the poodle and called animal rescue when the woman gave an incorrect name during questioning. The recently married Tiffany Buffett-Gates of Lilly Pond Lane “became flustered” during the incident and gave her maiden name, Thomas, although her license clearly showed her to be Mrs. Buffett-Gates. Yes, the policy seems to be working quite well here in the Hamptons, and everybody seems to be on board. “I’m really happy with it,” Woody Bennet, a Montauk fisherman, told me in an exclusive interview. “My brother was frisked last week after police saw him wearing a hooded sweatshirt stained with fish blood. He said it was no big deal.” Attorney Andrew H. Ourlyrate, who owns an oceanfront home in Amagansett, said that he, too, was frisked in Montauk—in front of his wife and two twin sons, just prior to their bar mitzvah. Police noticed the man lying on his back at the beach, in his clothes but without a towel, which anyone must agree is highly suspicious and potentially dangerous behavior. “I actually kind of enjoyed it,” Ourlyrate said of the frisking. “It sort of felt good, like a massage and freedom all wrapped into one experience. And it was nice that my kids saw it. I think it really helped teach them the important lesson of trusting and obeying all rules put in place for the benefit of everyone, and never to question them. I just hope to see more of it. I wish that we could stop and frisk everybody. It would make us a lot safer.” Read David’s blog about Hamptons life every day at

This Week’s Cover Artist: Anda Styler

the cover is so inviting, we want to know where the house is. To tell the truth, I don’t remember exactly. It’s hard to remember as you wander here and there. It’s in the area. I come to the Hamptons often, even though I live in Connecticut.

since I was nine years old. what a passion you had. How about your art training? I went to Parsons. I was 30 years old, older than most students, when I graduated. I was a freelance painter after that. I would paint Styler is drawn to older all night and take care of buildings. my daughter.

what attracted you to the image on the cover? I love the air, the light, the garden, the atmosphere, the beauty. I imagine you are attracted to the environment and what it means. For example, you are in Santa Fe as we speak, and you’ll be going to taos. where else have you traveled where an environment has such clarity? I love Ireland, Maine, New York City and the Hamptons, of course.

who or what influenced you the most? I had the most amazing teacher when I was nine years old. When we moved, she and her husband came to see me. She said, “I want you to be the artist you’re supposed to be.” Marilyn Conover was another teacher who was the deciding factor in my becoming an artist, when she gave me a book by watercolorist Ted Kautksey.

If you had a choice, where would you like to live and paint? As a painter, I see amazing, beautiful things I want to paint. It’s hard to say where I want to live. I stay open. I appreciate what I see. It seems like you especially appreciate buildings and gardens. How did that come about? I am drawn to old buildings. I should have been an architect. I like old plantings and old trees, too.

why do you paint? what’s your worldview? There are lots of images in the world, on the internet and TV, and they are pretty violent. I don’t need to do that. We need to look at something different. I want to paint what people are really like: free, peaceful, beautiful.

How about your family? Any artists or architects? My father was an engineer. My grandmother, aunt and sister were artists. I’ve been painting

This week’s cover by Anda Styler, called “Rose Garden,” is not just a pretty picture. While it brings back wonderful memories for those of us who grew up in a small town, the image also symbolizes an ideal middleclass life. The white picket fence, particularly, provides such a metaphor, and an iconic one at that, considering that such a fence dates back to Colonial times. But picket fences can also mean a time and place that no longer exist, suggesting even danger. (For example, David Lynch’s film Blue Velvet opened with a pleasant garden, filled with flowers, complete with a fence. Murder and mayhem soon followed.) This is not to say that Styler’s image is anything like that. But it does evoke a story that is intriguing: viewers can’t help but wonder who lives in the house and what lies beyond the picture plane. And where is this charming setting in the first place?

you are a plein air painter, right? I work outside in the warm weather and also work in my studio the rest of the year.

How My Garden (Obsession) Grows... By StACy DeRMoNt

Gardening has become a quickly unfolding obsession for me. I’m bordering on farming and that’s cool. But the paraphernalia is a bit much. The lawn looks great now that’s it’s under cultivation—neatly arrayed raised beds, taut deer fencing, brand new hoses and brass nozzles. But the “interior life” of a gardener can get messy. I’m yet to let go of the trappings of my lifelong sewing obsession. Fabric, lace, patterns, books take up a lot of space in my home and my storage unit. My cooking habits encroach upon much of our home—cookbooks in the library, above the kitchen sink, in a shelf at the top of the stairs. Pots and pans and pie plates overflow the kitchen while canning jars bury the basement. And now gardening. I had no idea. I keep all the tools and my gloves in a shed. But then there’s the books…and catalogs and magazines and sketches…Plus I understand that I’ll soon be storing seeds in my fridge. I thought I was onto a way to clean out— as I reached a new level in my pursuit of gardening, I’ve given away my copy of Crockett’s Victory Garden by James Underwood Crockett. I loved that Underwood spelled out what to do each month. But since 1977 there’s been a

strong case made against the home use of pesticides. And Long Island’s USDA Plant Hardiness Zone passed from 6 to 7 last year, we’re getting warmer. So I feel that my garden is less comparable to Crockett’s Massachusetts garden. I sent my tome of Bicentennial Yankee advice back to where it came from—the wall of our local transfer station. My new go-to gardening guide is The Four Season Farm Gardener’s Cookbook by Barbara Damrosch and Eliot Coleman (Workman Publishing). It breaks everything down into the simplest terms. For instance, there are illustrated charts (in lovely watercolors) of garden rotations over five years; a WINTER garden is explained in detail. Turns out you can grow leeks all year long—they don’t care what the temperature is. Suddenly leeks are my favorite vegetable. No doubt I’ll grow very fond of other root crops and brassicas (the cabbage family) next winter as well. Cold temperatures make them sweeter. I’m learning! I may be spending all of my time in the winter garden, at the rate our house is filling up with books. Four Season Farm seems complete garden-wise, but the cookbook section didn’t

bowl me over. I’ll certainly try some of the recipes but I’m not letting go of any of my other cookbooks. Much like cookbooks, every gardening book has something to offer. As does every gardening catalog, pamphlet and magazine. Oy. And then there are the “finer” things in life. I attended the Cornell Cooperative Extension’s annual Gardening School in Riverhead last month. It’s a one-day intensive. Wow! I highly recommend it for any gardener. I learned so much in my two classes— one about composting, the other on garden design. I also gleaned valuable advice from my fellow gardeners over lunch, like where to get inexpensive tomatoes for canning—Babinski’s! One attendee was giving away a stack of old magazines. We had similar tastes so I passed on her old copies of Country Living and House Beautiful, but a little number called Fine Gardening caught my eye. Instantly hooked. I’m not about to give up my subscriptions to Saveur or Lucky Peach or Food Arts, but maybe by focusing on the “fine” in dining, gardening, sewing and collecting I can pare down a little. Anyone out there in need of a book of Amish recipes?

Boating Adventures in the Age of the iPad I saw an ad for one of these new tablet things that showed two kids sitting nicely on a boat, completely engaged in their tablets while the two perfectly fit parents were in the background, sipping wine in the sun with the wind blowing through their hair. It looked like it was taken on the eastern seaboard, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t taken on Shelter Island, where boating is a religion, and them that owns a boat has many friends indeed. “I said no, Joey. You’re not takin’ that friggin’ peepad...” “It’s an iPad, Dad, and why can’t I take it? You get to take your fishing gear and do what you like to do on the boat, so how come I can’t take my iPad?” “It’s an electronic, a $400 electronic. Salt air and electronics never mix.” “Lame argument, Dad. It’s completely sealed, nothing is going to happen to it.” “You’ll drop it in the water.” “Mom already tried that argument. I’ve had this since Christmas and never dropped it once.”

“Don’t say things like that when Daddy’s drinking a beer...Now what’s so great about the iPad that you couldn’t leave it at home?” “And that was the last time your mother and I saw your face! You’re always looking down, we’d like to see you once in awhile. You used to like going fishin’.” “Ah, yeah, when I was like five...” “Thirteen isn’t that far from five, is it? I’ll bait your hook if it makes you happy.” “First, I’m 14. Second, I don’t need you to bait my hook. Third, I’d rather be home in an air -conditioned house.” “Yeah, well, you’re going. Me, you, your mother and little sister. We’re going so I don’t have to hear anything more about family time from your mother, and everybody’s going to have fun, dammit!” Later, on the boat... “The sun is too bright. I can’t see the screen.” “Put it down. Help your sister bait her hook.” “I hate her. I hate fishing, I hate this stupid boat.” “Joseph, please, let’s all try to have a nice time as a family.” “It’s your fault I’m going through this, Mom. You’ve got Dad so whipped, he does everything you tell him to.” “You father is a wise man. Someday, you’ll be married and you’ll understand.” “Not gonna happen, Mom. My wife is gonna do what I say.” “Tom, you okay, hunny? Joseph, don’t say things like that when Daddy’s drinking a beer.

You made him laugh so hard, he choked. Now, what’s so great about this iPad that you couldn’t leave it at home for a few hours?” “It does everything, Mom. It’s my life. I can get any information I need, anytime I need it. I’m constantly in contact with all my friends. You wanna know what time the tide is coming in? I can tell you.” “And it lets you easily update your Facebook page, like this morning’s entry about wanting to trade places with any kid in foster care rather than have us

as parents.” “So read my Facebook page. It’s a free country. I have first amendment rights, Mom.” “Here, let me use this paper towel to get the smudges off the surface.” “Okay, but just be careful.” “So this tablet do anything?” “Yup.” “Well, let’s see if it can fly,,,” “AAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!! Dad! She friggin’ launched my iPad!” “Don’t tell me, son. I’m whipped, remember?”

Begin Your Day with Sun Salutations! By KeLLy LAFFey

Last month, I celebrated Earth Day at Groundworks @ Hrens in East Hampton by partaking in a Half Mala. The event, which was put on by Lululemon East Hampton, advertised: “54 Sun Salutations will be led by local yoga instructors— that’s 54 sun salutations to celebrate the amazing world we live in, with flowers, fresh air and flowing water as your studio.” I had no clue what a “Sun Salutation” was, but there are few things I like better than simply being outside and soaking up the sun. So when that Sunday brought clear blue skies, I made the trek to almost-Amagansett at the newly opened Groundworks to enjoy the complimentary class. The thick carpet of grass and quaint stone waterfall were the perfect backdrop for giving thanks to the earth. Groundworks owner Linda Silch lead an amazing “Core, Strength and Stretch” class every Thursday during the winter at Lululemon’s Main Street, East Hampton location. Though she’s no longer teaching a weekly class there, her TRX classes are on the schedule at Studio 89 in Sag Harbor. Complimentary in-store classes taught by local fitness gurus are a part of the fabric of Lululemon, and their entire calendar of community events is posted online. The Earth

Day class was well done, with four local yogis enthusiastically leading us. I quickly learned that “54 Sun Salutations” literally meant “doing the same sequence of poses and stretches 54 times.” Despite how monotonous that may seem, especially if you didn’t count them and had no idea when it would end, I found myself staying positive. It was incredibly helpful to have the instructors, as they motivated us to continue with the salutations. Even more helpful was having the sun warm my back. It made saluting nature and nice weather much easier. And, I didn’t realize this until the day after, but it was a good workout. Here’s what I remember doing, in decidedly non-yogi terms: Stand at the front of your mat. Reach both hands up to the sky, stretching as if to say “What’s up?” to the sun. Bend down, letting yourself just hang and sink into the stretch. I call this position “rag doll.” Lift your torso until your back is completely flat and perpendicular to the ground, like an ironing board. Then sink, back down into rag doll, put both hands on the ground, and walk or jump your feet toward the back of your mat so you’re in push-up position. Slowly sink down, bending your arms so your torso is about an inch above the ground. Hold for a few seconds. Let your quads touch the

ground, straightening your arms to arch your back. (This is upward dog.) Then, curl your toes under and get into downward dog. Hold for a long, long time, and then walk or jump your feet to meet your hands, slowly standing up and reaching toward the sky. Repeat 53 times. Like all yoga, taking long inhales and exhales are an important aspect of doing each pose correctly—and slowly. I like to consider myself a decently in-shape person, someone who wouldn’t be taken down by body-weight exercises. But the next day humbled me, as I was sore in muscles I didn’t even know existed. This needs to be added to my daily routine. Fifty-four downward dog combos is far too intense for me to motivate myself to do on my own. But daily, shorter sun salutations aren’t a bad idea, especially given the physical and mental benefits. So I’m creating a short playlist of songs to do my salutations to: “Sunchyme” by Dario G—3:55 “Long Hot Summer” by Keith Urban—4:27 “Streetcorner Symphony” by Rob Thomas—4:09 “Human” by The Killers—4:04 “Island in the Sun” by Weezer—3:30 Twenty minutes and five seconds. I think I can handle that.

New Tech to Rock Out to Old Songs By MAttHew APFeL

A few weeks ago, my 9-year-old daughter asked me a question I’ve been expecting to hear for a long time. No, it wasn’t about drugs. Sort of. She wanted to know about rock and roll. Heavy Metal, to be precise. As a guy who owns about two terabytes of music, much of it recorded before the 1990s, I felt perfectly qualified to answer that question. A brief prelude: My kids have been listening to music since birth. My strategy was never to force my own faves on them; that would surely backfire. I let them listen to Ke$ha and Katy and Nikki, but I always sprinkled in Bob Marley and Tom Petty and The Ramones. I didn’t care if they liked shallow pop divas, as long as they liked music. I figured that sooner or later the cream would rise to the top. There were a few minor successes. My son loves to bounce to gangsta hip-hop—but none of it really stuck, until now. So how do you tell a kid the story of rock and roll without putting her to sleep? I decided to have them experience rock the same way that I did—on vinyl. And since I’m Dr. Gadget, I turned to an old friend to help me out: technology. First I needed a turntable. I assumed it would be impossible to find a decent model for less than $3,000. Guess what? I was wrong. There are dozens of retro-style turntables on the market. They’re easy to use, relatively durable and deliver sound quality that’s more than acceptable for curious young audiophiles. The Crosley Spinnerette is my favorite. Shaped like a suitcase, with bright mod colors, it looks just like the old Magnavox unit my friend Adam Parnes kept in his basement around 1973. It weighs about five pounds, folds up to the size of legal paper, and has a handle for easy carrying. It plays all three record speeds: 78, 45, and 33 RPM. Audio controls are idiot-proof: volume and tone. The cool thing is, it’s not entirely retro: the stereo speaker sounds way better than Adam’s Magnavox, there’s an output jack that lets you connect to a PC for recording, and an aux input to let you plug in your MP3 player and make mash-ups. At $150 delivered to your door, it’s a no-brainer. Next, I needed to find some records. Flea markets are a great place to start, but the internet has lots of options, too. I started on eBay and Amazon, which certainly have a good enough selection to get the basics, eBay has more vintage, one-of-a-kind records, while Amazon has lots of re-issues. Vintage records can be incredibly expensive—$50 for a scratchy version of Sticky Fingers seemed high. But many of the classics have been re-released on vinyl and sound just as good—at least to those of us who don’t require sound quality that dogs and whales would appreciate. There are also specialty sites devoted to rare and unusual vinyl. Like that small little record store that was in every town, with two guys behind the counter who were only mildly interested in the customers and rolled their eyes

at anyone who dared request a Tour, Tommy and an album by Supertramp or Genesis record. the Shangri-Las. I figured they is a good site. would like one of the first girl It lets you browse by genre, groups, and I was right.

DJs, it has a “vinyl breaks” My kids studied the liner section with instrumental notes and asked meaningful records to use as samples.

NEWS BRIEFS ComPilED by kElly lAffEy

SAG HARBOR: On May 24 and 25, Jordan’s Initiative, which is based in Sag Harbor, and Hope For The Warriors will be hosting 35 members of the 3rd Battalion 25th Marines in Sag Harbor. The battalion suffered 48 casualties in Iraq, 46 Marines and two Navy Corpsmen, one of the highest casualty rates of the war for a single battalion. On Saturday, May 25, they will be running from Montauk to Ground Zero to pay tribute to their fallen comrades and to honor the sacrifice of local heroes Jordan Haerter and Joey Theinert. They will also be running in honor of the brave first responders lost on 9/11. Their route will take them from Montauk, through Sag Harbor, over the LCpl Jordan Haerter Veterans’ Memorial Bridge, down Main Street and on to Ground Zero. The run will begin in Montauk at 7 a.m. on Saturday and will end 26 hours later at Ground Zero. In order to honor the runners and to pay tribute to our military heroes on Memorial Day Jordan’s Initiative would like to have 48 military veterans hold flags along the bridge while the Marines go by. The 48 flags will represent the 48 souls that were lost by the members of 3/25. Veterans or active duty military members who would like to hold the flags are asked to contact Jordan’s Initiative at 631-725-2489 or email Christian Haeter at christian. You will need to be available on Saturday May 25th from 10–11 a.m. Afterward, the flags will be donated to the Village of Sag Harbor and they will fly proudly on our Main Street for years to come.

WSJ Says Sag Harbor Ain’t So Happy

East Hampton’s Sabin Foundation Funds International Environmental Students

Memorial Day Run Planned to Honor Veterans, Volunteers Needed

SAG HARBOR: Following months of voting and deliberation, Sag Harbor was NOT named “America’s Happiest Seaside Town” by “Coastal Living” magazine. The historic former whaling port was one of 10 finalists, named among lovely spots like Harwich Port, Massachusetts; Kennebunkport, Maine; La Jolla, California; Newport, Rhode Island; and of course, the winner, Beaufort, South Carolina. But The Wall Street Journal published an article last week claiming that many Sag Harbor residents were likely thrilled that their village didn’t win. In the story, WSJ reporter Lucette Lagnado quotes Save Sag Harbor president Mia Grosjean, who says it perfectly: “Is Sag Harbor a happy place? No, Sag Harbor is not about happy,” she told Lagnado, noting that Main Street business might enjoy the moniker, but maybe not average residents who would have to endure an even greater influx of tourists. As local publicist Robbie Vorhaus told WSJ, “Any other place would be thrilled… But in Sag Harbor, it created angst to be nominated as the happiest village in America.”

Southampton Village Board Greenlights Citarella Site Plan

SOUTHAMPTON: A little over a year after Dan’s Papers said goodbye to its Bridgehampton office, our sorely missed neighbor will be joining us in Southampton. On Monday, the Southampton Village Planning Board approved Citarella’s site plan to move into 20 and 22 Hampton Road. The space is currently occupied by the mini mall, but the current zoning allows for the market to enter. Pending an OK from the Suffolk County Department of Health, the mini mall, which was invented by Tommy and Timmy of The Sandlot, fame, will be converted into a single-use space for Citarella.

NEW HAVEN, CONN.: The Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies has selected nine graduate students as Andrew Sabin International Environmental Fellows. The Andrew Sabin Family Foundation is a private charitable foundation based in East Hampton that provides grants to nonprofit organizations with the single goal of protecting and preserving the environment. The Andrew Sabin Family Foundation created the Sabin Fellowship program at Yale in 2011 to provide scholarship support for students from developing countries, and to provide additional post-graduate awards to students returning to their home countries to pursue environmental careers. Each Fellow receives up to $40,000 of funding for their education and service in environmental sectors. The 2013 Sabin Fellows are Elizabeth Babalola (Nigeria), Gladys Caballero (Colombia), Sonam Choden (Bhutan), Yufang Gao (China), Renzo Mendoza Castro (Peru), Lia Nicholson (Antigua and Barbuda), Juer Song (China), Jin Yin (China) and Alemayehu Belay Zeleke (Ethiopia). “I am excited to support these dynamic and energetic scholars from around the world through scholarships and by jumpstarting their environmental careers,” said Andrew Sabin. “My goal is to lower their debt burden while in school, and then offer a powerful incentive for each of them to return to their home countries and regions as quickly as possible to work on pressing environmental issues.” Each Fellow selected in 2013 is eligible to receive tuition assistance up to $20,000 and another $20,000 in post-graduation awards, which are contingent on the Fellow’s return to her/his native country within 18 months of graduation and service in the environmental sector for at least 12 months.

Mondo Vaude Returns to Vail-Leavitt! By roBert ottone


ho doesn’t like an old-fashioned burlesque/ vaudeville show? Live music, comedy and gorgeous women—the Vail-Leavitt Music Hall in Riverhead will have it all when it hosts The Return of Mondo Vaude on May 11 at 8 p.m. Direct from Coney Island, the show features the New York Variety AllStars, which includes magic, sideshow and other “death-defying” acts, all live onstage. The show is for those 17 and over. The Return of Mondo Vaude is a modern take on classic burlesque; burlesque, of course, being a parody or absurdist treatment of popular source material. Modern burlesque has seen a resurgence in recent years. By combining elements of striptease, comedy and other aspects of stagecraft, modern burlesque is a way for performers to showcase themselves in a multifaceted way. Dancers can showcase their comedy chops or magic skills while performing a choreographed number onstage. Chris Jones and Bob Barta, producers of Mondo Vaude, were kind enough to chat with me about the upcoming show. “The first show we did in Riverhead at the Vail-Leavitt was a full house and everyone I talked to said they had a great time. I met Judy Leavitt, who I guess is the granddaughter of the Leavitt that owned the theater. She said, ‘wow, if my grandfather knew you guys were bringing a show like this back to the Vail, he’d be pretty happy about it!’” Jones said.

“The Vail is historic, as entertainment progressed into the 1900s, musical productions and the growth of American pop music put the Vail on the map as a music hall. Vaudeville focused a bit more on the comedy, burlesque focused on pretty females and dancing. “Both appealed to a wide audience back then. Our show has a perfect balance of the two. We’ve got singers, music, variety and sideshow stuff. It’s a real mixed bag,” Barta said. Riverhead’s Vail-Leavitt Music Hall is the perfect venue for Mondo Vaude. Both men gushed about the rich history of the Hall’s connection to old-time vaudeville and variety acts. “The Vail is the perfect spot for what we’re trying to do with Mondo Vaude.— classic theaters are exactly the right fit for our show,” said Barta. The show was put together in the same way a classic vaudeville show was, with performers working on their acts for a good amount of time before performing. Though this modern take on vaudeville will be more polished, both Barta and Jones emphasized the excitement and immediacy of live theater. “We try to retain that element of fun. We want people to see something exciting, fresh, organic and happening. All right there on the fly,” Jones said. “Not a stuffy, overproduced kind of show.” The show is sporting some new additions this year. “Last year, we used a lot of pre-existing material, but

now we’ve got all original stuff. This year, I’ve written a tango for a chair dance and more for the burlesque performers,” Jones said. The show has also added a Russian contortionist, Miss Ekaterina, who has performed with Cirque Du Soleil and has been named Miss Coney Island. “She kind of brings a different spectrum to the show that we didn’t have last time,” Jones added. Both agree that Mondo Vaude connects with an audience on a very basic level. “I think that audiences want something that feels real,” Jones said. “There’s a lot of very superficial, superfabricated entertainment nowadays and I think that, since we’re in a digital, on-demand world, on a subconscious level, people want to reconnect with entertainment the way they used to— by seeing a performer do something live, in front of you, right on the spot.” “Our performers are doing things that the average person only dreams about, but never really does. Our performers all share the theme of being regular people, too, so I think theatergoers can relate and are engaged by that,” Barta noted. Mondo Vaude is certainly an exciting addition to the East End’s theater offerings. Burlesque, combined with vaudeville and sideshow-style acts and performances are sure to capture the imagination.

Perlman Alumni Concert May 11 By dan koontz


tour will bring her to Carnegie Hall. Lamprea’s playing has been noted for its charm and supreme panache—characteristics that come through in her conversation, as well. I recently got a chance to speak with Lamprea to discuss her experiences with the Perlman Music Program, her budding career and the upcoming Shelter Island concert. Like everyone who has been connected to the Perlman program, Lamprea notes the way the

erlman Music Program alumni Christine Lamprea and Hannah Shields return to Shelter Island this Saturday, May 11, to present an exciting program of music spanning from Bach to Prokofiev. The concert will take place in the beautiful new Kristy and James H. Clark Arts Center at the Perlman Program’s Shelter Island campus starting at 7:30. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and $10 for ages 18 and under. Admission includes an invitation to a “Meet the Artists” wine and cheese reception following the performance. Now in its 19th year, the Perlman Music Program was founded by Toby Perlman to identify talented young musicians and provide them with support in the form of instruction, coaching and mentoring. The top-flight faculty of the Shelter Island-based program, led by renowned violinist and concert artist Itzhak Perlman, are dedicated to training the next generation of classical musicians. Music lovers on the East End have benefitted mightily from the program’s efforts, with a season of affordable summer concerts right on their doorstep. Cellist Christine Lamprea, who attended the Perlman Chamber Music Workshop for two Christine Lamprea summers, is a 2011 graduate of Juilliard and is now completing a Master’s degree in cello performance camp’s serene Shelter Island setting seems to bring at the New England Conservatory. Still in her early out new levels of musical artistry. “It’s a great place to be as creative as possible,” ’20s, Lamprea is already a rising star in the classical music world. She recently took First Place in the 16th Lamprea says. “It’s a respite from the busy life of annual Sphinx Competition and has joined the Sphinx a student, and a place to try new ideas. I felt very Virtuosi, a touring ensemble comprised of winners productive and inspired there.” Indeed, practicing and rehearsing are doubtlessly of this coveted prize. Lamprea’s upcoming concert season will feature appearances with world-class more energized by the fresh sea breeze and deep orchestras, including the New Jersey Symphony and blue views of the Shelter Island Sound than they are the Houston Symphony, while the Sphinx Virtuosi by the stale air and blank walls of the conservatory

practice room—never underestimate the importance of place. But the Perlman program is about much more than setting, of course. “The Perlman’s have created a wonderful fellowship among the musicians. I continue to be in touch with other alumni. They’re a network—people available to talk about issues that come up in the music world. And of course the Perlmans are very supportive.” Lamprea is excited about the upcoming Shelter Island concert. It will feature the 3rd Suite for Bach Solo Cello, Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise for cello and piano, as well as late-period works by Beethoven and Prokofiev. “Prokofiev wrote his Cello Sonata toward the end of his life,” Lamprea explains, “during a time when there was a great deal of oppression against composers from the Soviet regime. Prokofiev had to watch his step. The piece is very rich—beautiful, sad, but also poking fun at things with humor and irony. It is a complete piece—it kind of has to go at the end of the program. It just blows you away.” Similarly, Beethoven’s end-of-life music is some of his most challenging, and the 5th Sonata for Cello and Piano is no exception. “Like Beethoven’s late quartets, this sonata has a lot of short sections—the music varies sharply and dramatically, and it’s hard to make it all feel grounded.” In a nod to her piano accompanist Hannah Shields, Lamprea acknowledges that Beethoven’s piano writing here is often more devilishly difficult than the cello part. With the foundation of the Perlman Music Program and a very promising lineup of performances already in place, Christine Lamprea looks headed for great things. Catch her right here on Shelter Island, and thank the Perlmans for all they do for young musicians and musical culture on the East End.

Homegoing Traditions at Southampton Museum


he title may sound a bit academic—“African Diaspora Homegoing Traditions”—but what Eastville Community Historical Society (ECHS) will be exploring about death and burial practices on The East End by way of a multimedia symposium on Saturday, May 18 should prove eyeopening and inspirational. In collaboration with the Southampton Historical Museum (SHM), the program will feature speakers, a musician and an exhibit of documents and artifacts that in the words of ECHS director and chief curator Georgette Grier-Kay will not only educate but celebrate. Burial customs, as archeological records increasingly show, reflect complex traditions. The term “homegoing” itself, probably of African or Afro-Caribbean origin, as ECHS Cemetery Committee Chair, Michael Butler says, is meant to suggest that death is an affirmation of a life lived, no matter how painful. So many died on the notorious Middle Passage or from brutality and exhaustion in this country. For them, death was a release, a deliverance, with the promise of an afterlife. Thus, mourners at homegoing services wear white, signifying purity. Butler also notes that when bodies were buried facing east it was with the expectation of rising, of going home. A funeral in the diaspora was the “ultimate mark of respect” paid especially to those whose life on earth was hell. And so, as ECHS vice president Beryl Banks point out, burial rites were celebratory,

regardless of denomination—an avowal of soul and include protecting the site with fencing, developing strength—important knowledge for caregivers and community education workshops and instituting medical personnel, not incidentally, and the subject Adopt-a-Grave and cemetery walking tour programs. of a symposium talk by Catherine Zarate, “Cultural “We have a little jewel here,” Grier-Key says of St David, “rock stars,” but she also refers to cemeteries Awareness Training in Death and Dying.” Guest speakers also include Maura Doyle, Historic in other L.I. areas such as Mt.

North Fork Art Scene, South Street Gallery By marion wolBerg-weiss

Both old and new art spaces make their presence known on the North Fork, including Greenport’s South Street Gallery. Owned and operated by husband and wife team, Amy Worth and Tom Payne, the six-year-old venue sits in the middle of town, complementing the area’s historical character. The structure gives off a welcoming vibe with its colorful flag waving in the breeze, declares “OPEN.” Inside, the ambiance is light and airy with soft music playing in the background. Worth (who is an art teacher and textile designer) evokes a comforting and calm sensibility, and so do most of the paintings on display. More importantly, however, the works

capture the essential qualities of the North Fork: pride in the past, gentle fields, abstract designs on the beach, lush and lovely farmland. The pieces convey a style that’s salient as well, a kind of otherworldliness that characterizes the area. Regardless of the trucks, barns and boats, each object and scene possesses an impressionistic quality, communicating a feeling of being in a special place where things are serene and meaningful. Simply put, the exhibit allows us to experience the North Fork without leaving the gallery. Works made of casein and beeswax by Charles Winheld are both abstract and impressionistic; the artist’s rendition of a truck is a good example of the fantasy-like quality that distinguishes the exhibit. His abstract “Co-op” featuring what appears to be buildings offers another view of the North Fork complete with a mythic setting. Oil pastels and graphite contribute to a similar setting in the landscape paintings by Marion Jones where abstraction plays an important part. Ty Stroudsberg’s oils on linen also add to the combination of abstraction and impressionism. The artist’s use of diagonal composition gives fields a three-dimensional depth that is truly arresting, placing the viewer in the image itself. William Porter’s oils on panel provide another kind of abstraction, where rocks become sculpture pushed to the point of Surrealism. Doug Reina’s scenes take us away from landscape and abstractions, giving us instead local color. Consider the carnival rides that Reina captures reminding us of bygone days. A truck parked in a boatyard by the water also recreates the past and the idea of a fantasy coming to life. Amy Worth’s still lifes with impasto represent another medium which creates fantasy, like her “Thanksgiving Blooms.” The texture produced by the artist seems fitting for a

Hooked on Crime in Local Waters By joan Baum

In Caught (Amazon, Kindle), with, arguably, one of the most unusual prefaces and acknowledgments to accompany a nonfiction tellall book, Jeff Nichols, 47, confesses, with blunt remorse and an engaging style, his “Maniacal Pursuit of a Sixty Pound Striped Bass and His Experiences with the Black Market Fishing Industry,” the subtitle of this justreleased, self-published memoir. Up-to-date and true, though he wishes it were not, he did change “some names for obvious reasons” (he expects to get “some flak if not worse”). The title “Caught” is loaded, alluding to both fishing and the law (he was once arrested). He could, however, no longer ignore the dictates of his conscience: what he saw, what he did “fishing Montauk for 15 years” ( Though he still works at being “a six pack charter boat captain,” he heeds scrupulously to the catch and release policy for fish over 40 inches. He had “mixed feelings about writing the book,” he says in line one: “Sure, I have always desired literary notoriety and am admittedly a media whore,” but why “piss off” the cooks and commercial fishermen and draggers (oh, how they waste!)? Alienate the legitimate, licensed lure and linesmen just trying to make a living, Montauk guys who befriended him over the years, trophy-fishing buddies who are becoming an endangered species? Why would he even risk killing his own career? The answer, he says, referencing the Gore documentary, is an “inconvenient truth”

he could no longer dismiss—that striped bass, especially “slobs” (the big female breeders),“so abundant only a few years ago” after being reclaimed, are once again on their way to extinction because of overfishing, much of it from “illegally submerged gill nets” and from mycobacteriosis (70% of fish in Chesapeake Bay have this disease). He realizes he must seem like a “hypocrite”—he used to bootleg striped bass (selling without a license, which was not illegal in ’70s ad ’80s). As late as last fall he was selling fish to restaurant owners out of the trunk of his car. Caught is a nervy, quotable, important exposé, full of lively anecdotes, marginal colorful characters and a sobering ambivalence about the D.E.C. (Department of Environmental Conservation). Nichols is also up front about his lack of qualifications: “I am not a scientist; I am just a fishing addict with an ego problem. I happened to be armed with a captain’s license I got by filling out a coupon I saw on the back of a Cracker Jack box.” He went to boarding school, tennis camp, Hobart College, wore madras pants, went skiing in Vail, did a bit of coke and acid, but his years as a stand-up comic and humor writer gave him an obvious inability to deceive himself. He had also, early on, fallen in love with fishing (“addicted”) and then with “Mecca,” a.k.a. Montauk. He obviously learned to roll with

the easy illegalities that come with fishing along the Eastern seaboard (at their worst off the North Carolina coast). Unless you live in a cave, he says, “If you are a fisherman you know that the striped bass stocks are in trouble.” The book is thus a challenge to the pros, at a critical time, when the tourist season is heating up (but not yet the waters). It’s also a clarion call to the rest of us and to the bureaucrats who harass commercial fishermen with restrictive laws and paperwork but turn the other way when it comes to enforcement. Why self-publish, especially after previous books did well (Simon and Schuster, film adaptations)? Nichols is dyslexic (it’s a nice touch to see some mistakes left in), but family and friends slowed him down catching errors, and he was “in a hurry” to get the book out for the coming striper season, which has just begun. He also wanted to ensure that now that he had incriminated himself publicly, he couldn’t possibly go back to selling fish or weighing in with a trophy slob. In an email to me, he writes that a captain from Rhode Island told him that “100% of all the striped bass sold in Newport over the summer is brought through the back doors.” As for Long Island, from July to October, “selling striped bass illegally is a multi-million dollar industry.” So the next time we see striped bass on a menu…

Movies... Hot Flicks This week The great gatsby Just in time for another summer spent on Long Island amidst the wealthy, partying set comes The Great Gatsby, Baz Luhrmann’s glittery take on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel about a summer spent on Long Island amidst the wealthy, partying set. Luhrmann’s film, like Fitzgerald’s novel, is set in 1922 (although with Luhrmann you can expect a high degree of artistic license when it comes to historical details—remember, he’s the guy who made Moulin Rouge), but the elements of upper-class decadence, marital discord and alienation that feature prominently in the original story are timeless. Indeed, the central, yet enigmatic character Jay Gatsby, a man who invents himself out of whole cloth and bluffs his way into prominence, is now seen as an American archetype. As influential and ubiquitous as the novel has been, over the years it has proved difficult to capture successfully on film. From the looks of it, Luhrmann’s solution has been to turn Fitzgerald’s thoughtful book into a lurid, raunchy freak-fest. With Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. Watch for a feature story on the movie in next week’s paper. Peeples Set in the Hamptons, Peeples features a plot straight out of a sitcom. Ordinary African-American guy Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) wants to marry his girlfriend Grace Peeples (Kerry Washington), who comes from a prominent African-American family. Grace’s father, played by David Alan Grier, is a judge, and the family has a big house in the Hamptons. Of course, despite the

best appearances, the Peeples are hardly perfect. Anyway, it’s the summer, and the Peeples are having their family reunion, so Wade decides to show up and ingratiate himself. Much hilarity ensues as he tries to convince the Peeples that he’s good people. sightseers A British import from director Ben Wheatley, Sightseers is a dark comedy about a romantic camping holiday that kind of turns into a killing spree. Chris and Tina, two eccentric 40-somethings who have finally found love together, embark on a sightseeing trip, towing a camper trailer, guided by Chris’s peculiar enthusiasms. (Among the sights on the itinerary: the Crich Tramway Museum and the Keswick Pencil Museum.) Now, as everybody knows, being a tourist would be great if it weren’t for all the other tourists that seem to want to be exactly where you want to be—annoying, loud, inconsiderate, self-important, littering tourists that ruin it for the rest of us. For Chris, it’s all too much to bear: seeing his romantic dream threatened by the obnoxiousness around him, he turns to murder in the name of outraged travelers everywhere. and now a word From our sponsor From Canada, And Now A Word From Our Sponsor, a comedy with a clever premise. Adan Kundle, advertising genius, has fallen victim to a strange form of aphasia: now everything he says is an advertising slogan from a commercial. Sometimes the things he says seem like non sequiturs, and at other times they seem oddly appropriate. The question is, can he still hold his own as CEO of Kundle, the ad agency he founded? With Bruce Greenwood and the inimitable Parker Posey.

Tips For Maintaining Wisteria By jeanelle myers

Last year, I suggested to a client that we plant a wisteria “tree” in one of her pots. I had “made” wisteria trees in the past by using a new plant that started to branch from a single upright at about 24 inches. I planted them in pots and began forming the “canopy” by tying selected vining pieces to bamboo poles to form the shape. This involved continual and careful pruning and regular reshaping. In two years, I had baby wisteria trees that became spectacular. But this spring I found no vines that would work. They were already too tall. As I peruse the garden centers and nurseries this year, I will continue to look for some I can train. The results are so fantastic and the challenge is similar to taming a wild beast! I still remember, years ago, seeing a wisteria in full bloom as tall as a pine. Wow, I thought, a wisteria tree! It was breath-taking, dripping with lavender flowers. I inspected to find that the wisteria had used the tree as a structure and the tree was almost dead, having been strangled by the vine. Soon after, the tree and wisteria had been removed, probably with the same large machine that removed all of the other plant material in preparation for a new house. This might be the best way to remove wisteria! The garden centers and nurseries have Asian and

American wisteria at this time, and remembering those exquisite and fragrant flowers, it is tempting to plant one. But wisteria is similar to bamboo, beautiful and exotic but needs specific planting situations and attention forever or it will become dangerously invasive. Because of the way it grows, if left unattended it can eat your house and then move on to eat the neighbor’s or infest the trees in a very large area. Wisteria wants to twist around something to climb and can climb up to 65 feet. As it twists around its host, it strangles the host. In fact, if wisteria twists around itself, one piece will strangle all others. As it climbs, it sends out side tendrils and tendrils from the trunk to find new hosts and they send out new tendrils. The bottom of the plant can grow to 15 inches or more and Wistful wisteria new tendrils grow from the base, at ground level and travel enormous distances. I have a client that has a small vine attached to his house. The base is under the steps so I cannot get to it to trim the tendrils at the trunk. He lives in the woods, and I have scoured the area removing tendrils as far away as 80 inches. If a piece of tendril is left in the ground, it will sprout and continue to grow. Every time I go to this house, I go into the woods to look for telltale wisteria leaves. This plant does not bloom!

Young ones, 6–7 years old, usually do not. Here’s the good part. If trained and maintained, the wisteria can be exquisite. It needs a location where it can show off and something to climb on after the trunk becomes large enough. If the top is clinging to something, it can stand alone. A pergola is a good location, as the flowers will hang underneath and over whelm the viewer with its beauty and fragrance. The pergola should be substantial to carry the weight of a mature vine. It must be constantly inspected and pruned. Growth from the base must be removed and new tendrils must be cut. This also encourages new flowers. It must be pruned to keep it from pulling the pergola apart. If you plant it next to a building, it must be kept off of the building so it will not lift the roof or peal off the shingles. American wisteria is more well behaved, grows shorter tendrils, is not as vigorous, and blooms on and off through the summer. I would still plant it with the above in mind. Actually, I would only plant wisteria in a pot and then watch the hole in the bottom for escaping tendrils! Jeanelle Myers is a professional gardener, landscaper and consultant.

Take a Seat for Worthy Causes By tamara matthews-stephenson

This IFDA Take A Seat charity event will happen simultaneously with New York, California and Japan chapters, with each chapter hosting their own chair auction. In New York, there are 24 designers building or refurbishing chairs for a live public auction on May 16 at Lillian August Furnishings + Designs at 12 W. 20th St., New York to raise funds for Japan Tsunami and Sandy relief, as well as the chapter’s professional development. Area Sandy funds will be donated to the Home Town Heroes organization. Many of the designers refurbishing chairs are from Long Island. Chairs are on exhibit through May 16 in the Lillian August showroom, and silent bids are encouraged. Designer Jamie Drake will host the evening on May 16, with professional auctioneer Karl Green, Director of Furniture & Decorative Arts, Bonhams New York. For tickets visit

I have lived through several hurricanes in East Hampton and therefore know only too well the perils of damaged property due to out-of-control weather. Long Islanders suffered greatly from Superstorm Sandy, many are still picking up the pieces. I have hurricanes on my mind lately, having just returned from a design trip to New Orleans. Part of my sponsored visit was dedicated to learning first-hand about those still suffering seven years after the horrific rage of Hurricane Katrina. As part of Modenus’ famous Blogtour sponsored design trips, several of us were brought to New Orleans to write about the suffering that still exists in this historic city, plus the grassroots rebuilding going on today. Since it’s not in the national news much anymore I was surprised at how many people in New Orleans are still homeless or living without working kitchens, but was reassured by the various organizations working daily with hammer in hand to help needy families. It’s still a work-in-progress but they are making strides day-by-day. To learn more about the partnership of the Storehouse of Visions organization with St. Paul’s Homecoming Center, visit

for only $20 at the Animal Rescue Fund’s (ARF) Thrift & Treasure Shop in Sagaponack. Once home, I noted my chair was a quality mahogany Baker Furniture chair from their Indonesian Collection. I decided to use the caned back as a canvas to showcase these antique illustrations. I painted a tiny black canvas and glued on the cutout antique illustrations, then varnished them in a mosaic pattern onto the caned back. I chose a water-like fabric from Robert Allen Fabrics called “Malachite” in indigo, and painted the chair a glossy blue-violet color to mimic the color of the ocean. I finished off the cushion with a punchy orange trim to give it a nautical appeal. Thankfully, I had numerous design brands offer me their complimentary products and services including, Farrow & Ball Paint, Robert Allen Fabrics, Martin Albert Upholstery, Jana Platina Phipps and We Do Dan's FP As 9/11_We Do Dan's FP 9/16/11 12:33 PM Page 1 Brimar trims.

my sea-inspired chair for the IFDa take a seat charity event.

On my return home, I was happy to become part of the IFDA NY Chapter’s first international, simultaneous design exhibition, with local tri-state area Sandy victims as one group of the beneficiaries. Having learned firsthand how important it is for communities to come together and help those suffering from natural disasters, I did not hesitate to take a secondhand chair, and with the power of the ocean as my inspiration, create a “sea-inspired” piece for this worthy cause. I’ve lived near the ocean my entire life, and my family has been in awe of its beauty. While putting together my chair, I decided to utilize antique prints illustrated in the 1800s by scientist and artist, Ernst Haeckel. Haeckel’s perspective on sea creatures and crustaceans captures their intricacy and beauty. After a day of shopping on the East End in search of a worthy secondhand chair, I picked up a sturdy-but-tired one

New World Home: Beautiful, Classic, Green


ew World Home is a company that has made a name for itself by working to build a better “green” home while also changing the way people think about modular homes. The East End of Long Island has been pushing an agenda of “green” solutions to further reduce one’s carbon footprint or impact on the environment for a long time. The notion of generating green energy, reducing waste and constructing a home that complies with modern environmental standards are all aspects of going “green.” Often, modular homes are extremely modernlooking and just don’t fit in a particular neighborhood that’s home to some of the more classical examples of Long Island architecture. That’s where New World Home steps in. By building sustainable, green modular homes that put an emphasis on location

and history, a client can design and build a home that aesthetically fits an area perfectly. “We combine historical design with best-in-class products from around the world and merge them into a factory setting to manufacture our houses,” said Tyler Schmetterer, founder and CEO of New World Home. “We spent the first three years of our company in research and development. We wanted to create something that was truly unique in terms of housing performance. We pay attention to what the Germans, the Japanese and the Scandinavians are doing in terms of cutting-edge tech and developments and glean as much as we could from their practices toward green housing.” New World Home is looking to expand into Southampton, fresh off winning Country Living Magazine’s House of the Year in 2012. “One of the things we realized was that this country is generations behind in terms of the rest of the advanced world in

home design and manufacturing. Modular housing and pre-fab housing isn’t necessarily a new idea. Our industry is sort of its own worst enemy. Over the past 30 years or so, they’ve really created a stigma as to what modular housing is,” Schmetterer said. “We basically threw that out and decided to stick to the integrity of our designs and the architectural authenticity of our designs and make the factories conform to them.” New World Home goes through a lot of research and painstaking detail in assembling a home for a customer. By complying with modern regulations and paying attention to indoor air quality and other green factors, New World Home strives to make good on their promise of home-energy optimization. “Our homes are produced in half the time and most importantly perform far better in terms of energy efficiency. On average, our homeowners are saving around 60% of their home’s energy. That’s without incorporating solar or other renewable energy developments. We believe that our clients shouldn’t have to rely on exotic technology to get the most out of their energy needs.” Through a process of reverse-engineering, New World Home has put together the concepts of what makes a perfect house. In the end, it didn’t boil down to what kind of lumber was used to construct the home, the process went into such details as to the minutia of bonding agents, glues and all the chemicals that can seep into our homes. All of this relates to indoor air quality. New World Home constructs their modular designs without any kind of negative air-quality agents like formaldehyde. “There’s new projects coming out every day that are formaldehyde-free. It’s really an amazing time, we’re always looking to utilize new products.” A recent project in Bridgehampton, upon first glance, looks like any other in the region. The home is beautiful, classy and understated. It’s also entirely pre-fab, modular and green. “We work with the customer to develop a house that looks like its been there for 150 years. That’s very important for us in terms of the architectural responsibility. We’re not just cramming a house in there because we’re trying to make a statement or because it looks good. There’s a social responsibility there, too. There’s a community responsibility. The house should look like it belongs.” For more information, visit New World Home’s website,

Mortgage Lessons From Home Finance Experts


hen it comes to getting a mortgage there is no sugarcoating it—it can be a hassle. There are over two dozen forms and applications that must be promptly completed before getting your loan. In fact, even the etymology of the word mortgage seems is spell doom. “Mort” is from the Latin word for death and “gage” is from the sense of the word meaning pledge. So in many ways mortgage means “death pledge.” But it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom. The first thing you need to do in the process is find a realtor. “Finding a realtor that is good for you is very important because you will be spending a lot of time with that person,” tells Marcy Braun, a licensed real estate salesperson with Nest Seekers in Southampton. Finding a realtor who is accessible and intuitive to your needs will make this stressful process less nerve-racking. Before you enter the housing market, whether you are looking to buy or refinance, be sure to do some research before you begin. Calculate your currently monthly finances in comparison with your monthly income, and plan out how much you can afford to put down on your gateway to the perfect hamptons home your next property. A rule of thumb (though fairly general) is that you want to purchase a home monthly income. Of course the easiest way to keep that is three to four times your gross annual income your monthly payments down is putting down a on a home loan. So, if you make $60,000 per year, you larger down payment. “The larger down payment you make, the could afford an $180,000–$240,000 mortgage. The very last thing you want to be is smaller your mortgage will be and the lower your overly aggressive. Though being a little gung-ho can monthly payment will be as well,” tells Christopher

Minardi, Guaranteed Rate Branch Manager in East Hampton. You don’t want to get overextended and take on a mortgage that your monthly budget cannot handle. Keep your other monthly expenses like auto loans, student loans and credit card debt as low as possible. Or, as Minardi puts it: “When you have the choice of getting a really nice car or a really nice house, get the nice house and skimp on the car.” When you have decided to buy a house and have minimized your other expenses, begin looking around to find an agent that you feel comfortable with. From here, you can find yourself a lender and get yourself pre-approved for a mortgage. You do not need to know what house you want to buy to get yourself a budget. This will give you an idea of what houses to consider, and help you realize what your budget can truly afford. Mortgages come in two basic forms: fixed rate and adjustable rate. A fixed rate mortgage is a home loan whose interest rate will not change during the life of the loan. On the other hand, an adjustable rate mortgage is a home loan whose rate will likely change, either up or down during the life of the loan.

get you that dream house, it can also get you quickly into debt if your finance record is weak. However, this calculation is too simplistic, as it doesn’t really account for the ability of your monthly budget to handle a mortgage payment. What lenders really care about when qualifying you for a mortgage is keeping your property-related monthly expenses in the range of 28-percent to 38-percent of your gross

By roBert sForza

So, what’s the best mortgage? “As cliché as it sounds, it depends,” tells Braun. “What works for one will not work for another. It really depends on how long you plan on staying in your home and how comfortable you are with your rate changing.” (Continued on page 62)

Adding Feminine Touches to Home Decor By helen lind


n my home town of Knutsford in the rural county of Cheshire, England, the May Queen has been prepared for her annual crowning on the ancient Heath. And yes, there were young local girls dancing around the Maypole and Morris Men prancing in knickerbockers, hats and jingling bells as they knocked their batons in the air. We celebrate the Divine Feminine as spring bursts forth and honor our creative potential as the wheel of the year turns. This month I’m focusing on two more feminine aspects of home design…the use of gentle, soothing lilacs and lavenders in the furnishings and décor of your Hamptons home, and the many Toile de Jouy styles and colors available for drapes, furnishings and wallpapers.

refined sense of optimism. And so to lavenders and lilacs—gentle, peaceful colors from delicate and fragrant flowers that soothe the feminine soul in us all. I’m not talking about the frequently strident tones selected for teenage bedrooms and gingerbread house exteriors but the spring-like hues that create wonderful light and shade as the day progresses; not too cold but fresh, clean and appealing. Tones that are perfectly complemented by creams, soft greys, silvers and willow greens. Consider a lilac theme for guest rooms and create a gentle, peaceful sanctuary. Floral themes reduce formality and are both embracing and nurturing. Support with mirrors, glass and crystal pieces to reinforce the light airy feel. Invest in a lavender mohair fringed throw from the Hamptons’ very own Ralph Lauren.

Take lavender into the kitchen for an unusual but refreshing and clean approach to décor. Kitchens are bustling, messy high energy places so the calming vibe of delicate, yet not insipid, lavender walls allows the space to breathe, relax and support a Hamptons home’s inhabitants. Living rooms and bedrooms, also benefit greatly from the calm and tranquility of lilacs and lavenders. At the very least, gather the biggest bunch of lilacs you can and place them in jars and vases around your Hamptons home to welcome spring and to celebrate the grace and power of all things feminine.

Consider using lilacs in your hamptons home

Toile de Jouy is a classic French pictorial style originally created for fabric but now extended to wallpapers. First printed in the French town of Jouy just north of Versailles, one of their first in-house artists was a court painter for Marie Antoinette herself. These natural and romantic images range from bucolic scenes of peasants and cattle resting near streams after the day’s labors to elegant lords and ladies within classical and mythological themes. To decorate and furnish using these images allows us to enter their enchanting world. The wide variety of scenes available means that Toile works as well in a formal dining room or elegant living room, as it does in a back hallway or rustic kitchen area. Originally images were black, blue, red and grey on a white or cream background, but today’s manufacturers offer both colored backgrounds and a broader more contemporary range of graphics colors.

Historically, decorators used both Toile de Jouy fabrics and wallpaper in the same room, creating a highly decorative and ornate look, especially in bed chambers. Today’s designers prefer to balance the feminine feel of toile with simple stripes, checks and textures serving to rest the eye from the intricacy of the pattern. Always elegant, always interesting Toile designs make a fine Hamptons statement, bringing together traditional roots, gracious living and a

Mortgage (Continued from page 60) The cheapest mortgage is the one with the lowest interest rate Granted, the loan with the lowest interest rate is a good thing it is not necessarily the most affordable loan. “The most important number to focus on is your APR,” says Minardi. APR or Annual Percentage Rate is much like a player’s batting average in baseball. You can quickly get a sense for how one hitter compares to another based on the batting average. It’s the same with APR, except that a higher batting average is great in baseball, whereas a higher APR for a loan is bad. You want to keep your APR as low as possible. So, what is the single most important item for getting a low mortgage rate? “There are a lot of factors that determine your mortgage rate. However, the primary determinant of your home loan is your credit score,” informs Minardi.

Lenders want to do business with people who are likely to keep current with their mortgage payments, so they will provide lower rates to the “less risky” borrowers, adds Minardi. A high credit score (a score between 760–850) can reduced interest rates by as much as 25 percent, allowing homebuyers more money to spend on other things, like furnishing your new home, landscaping or any improvements the home may need. Documents Required Once your finances are in order and you are ready to deal, your mortgage documents are finally revealed. Despite the copious amounts of documents, be intentionally mindful of the two documents required by law when you finalize your application, The Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and the Truth-InLending (TIL) document. The GFE is an estimate of your loan terms, monthly payments and any fees that

“The most important number to focus on is you APR (Annual Percentage Rate),” says minardi are associated with the transaction. The TIL outlines finance charges being paid over the term of the loan, including the APR, and payment schedule. From here you are almost at the end, or what realtors call the “Clear to Close.” “Once you hear these words, as a home buyer all you have to do is agree on the closing date,” says Braun. As a homebuyer you are almost through the slew of paperwork. The most common documents required in the process by the future homebuyer are your tax returns (one year or two if you are self-employed or commission based), W-2s (at least two years), pay stubs, bank statements (two months) and investment account statements (last two months). Although you need a credit score, a pre-approval letter, a mortgage application, the GFE and TIL, these documents are conveniently provided by your lender. Throughout the rest of the process as a homebuyer, all you’ll need to provide is your own home inspection (within five days of seller’s acceptance), a copy of your driver’s license, and, of course the money to close. During this time you, will receive a deed to the property from the seller. This document spells out the legal identity of the property and transfers ownership to you. You are now a new homebuyer. “There is a lot of paperwork in this whole process,” says Minardi. “But remember your broker works for you. Ask them any questions you may have.”

Blue River Estates in Riverhead By kelly ann krieger

Courtesy Suffolk Theater

ver the past few years, downtown Riverhead has definitely made great strides toward rebuilding, revitalizing and renewing storefronts, parks, buildings and businesses. Main Street is being transformed into a hip and trendy downtown that is rich in culture, foodie options, shopping and historic value—all the makings of a flourishing community. It takes a great deal of planning and resources to achieve such goals, and local business, community leaders and investors have been diligent in their efforts. Most recently, plans for a new downtown condominium building was unveiled this past February. The proposed building, Blue River Estates, will be a five-story brick building with 48 one-and two-bedroom units. Units will include a beautiful kitchen, laundry room, dining room, living room, one and a half baths, walkin closets and a private balcony. Martin Sendlewski, the project architect designed each space to utilize every square foot. The luxury building will also feature a four-story atrium allowing for natural light and a feeling of open space. In addition, the units will be provided with all the best amenities including a rooftop sun deck, state-of-the-art gym, pool and spa as well as ample ground-floor parking. Blue River will also have amazing picturesque views of the river and park.

Downtown riverhead is on the rise!

Although the project is in the development and review stage, this proposed state-of-the-art luxury building will offer yet another wonderful addition to the downtown area attracting a new and broader market. When reviewing any proposed projects, there are many variables to consider. The Community Development Department plays a major role in the careful planning and coordination of each proposal. Revitalization projects and renewal programs have been furthered through business development incentives, historical restoration and urban renewal programs as well as other available programs. Special funding, the hard work and dedication of caring citizens and local government have made it all possible to see these projects to fruition. Historic buildings such as the Vail-Leavitt Music Hall and the newly re-opened Suffolk Theater now stand as beautiful entertainment centers thanks to all sides coming together—owners and staff, residents and the governing politicians and community leaders. Another unique aspect of downtown Riverhead is the Peconic Riverfront, so it provides the town with a picturesque backdrop and a sense

of natural beauty. The waterfront and Grangebel Park have been updated aesthetically with new lighting and bulkheading, in addition to many safety improvements. Restaurants, shops, galleries are all too happy to be part of the new and improved downtown area

as well—Blue Duck Bakery, Tweeds, Digger O’Dells, Farm Country Kitchen, Green Earth Grocery, The Riverhead Project, Chic Creations, 73 Main, Twin Forks Bicycles, East End Arts Council and of course the very popular Long Island Aquarium, as well as many others, (visit for a full listing) are all part of the town’s success. With development, preservation and beautification of the downtown area in full force, a renewed interest is already showing much promise. Riverhead is a shining example of how time, dedication and careful planning can really make a difference. Downtown Riverhead is truly a special place to live and a great community to enjoy.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR GARDeN COLUMN Dear Jeanelle, Your article in the April 19, 2013 issue has some good information but it also has some bad information and some dangerous information. The good has to do with gardening. The bad has to do with the irrigation information. While you are correct that a professional does cost more, they will do the job correctly. You implied “your way” is more labor intensive but less expensive. That would confuse people because you make it sound like you use the same material as a professional would but you do the labor. A professional would never bury a garden hose. There are many reasons why but I will give you just one. The hardest part of this job is the trench work. A garden hose is not designed to be buried and will breakdown after a few years, as you found out, and need to be replaced. The first thing a professional would do is put a pressure gauge on your spigot and find out your water pressure. Then the size of pipe and the number of heads or drip hoses, can be determined. It is no trick to create the system but you need to do some research to do it right and it can still be a do-it-yourself project. The Site has a lot of very good information for the home owner. You also left out a critical item. You did not mention an anti-Siphon valve. I hope you have one installed in your system for two reasons. Most areas consider it code to have one installed but the other reason is even more important. With a buried system that is always connected to the house water supply,

bacteria can work its way into your drinking water. This is a dangerous situation. Last but not least, you did not mention having the system “blown out” at the end of the season. Even if you install the system yourself, you can call a professional in the fall to blow all the water out of your system. If you don’t do this and there is water in the pipes, a cold winter can cause the buried pipes to crack and when you turn the water on in the spring you will need to replace the buried pipes. I hope this information will help you install a longer lasting and safer installation for you and your many readers. Have a great day. Yours truly, Harold Dornseif St. James Thank you for your letter in which you have made important points about a closed irrigation system using the kind of hose that professional irrigation companies use. However, I was, perhaps, unclear. The hose I use is the black soaker/sweating/dripping type of hose. Because it breathes, it is not a closed system. Also, I am not advocating this system but just briefly explaining a system that has worked for me for many years. Professional systems are the easiest and, if done well and monitored, can be wonderful but there are many ways to water a garden. This is mine...—JM STUFF Dear David, I liked your article “My Stuff is Better and Younger

Than Your Stuff” from your 3/15/13 paper. The article is very true, and, therefore, contrary to what most of American culture tells people how to live. I hope you publish an article once or twice a year like that to keep reminding people of what really matters. Thanks again, Richard Ballerini Forest Hills Think young and you don’t need it. —DR iSTAR Dear Dan, I read your article in the May 3 Dan’s Papers with interest. I had the pleasure of serving as a volunteer for many years with Okeanose Ocean Research; predisessor to The Riverhead foundation. On the whale watch and stranding team. In your article, it is stated “...apparently nothing wrong with her physically, other than she had a great trauma to her head, similar to what it looks like when a whale runs into a ship.” In my experience, whales do not run into ships: ships run into whales. All in all, a nice article. Thanks! Ross Salt Sagaponack Agreed. I regret the error. —DR Email your letters to

Where to save while dining out

Restaurant Review: Muse in the Harbor

I’m gonna go down to Schiavoni’s and try to pick someone up.” Is not a declaration oft heard, especially in this the “pre-season”—but I had occasion to utter this to my husband last month. He’s a professional musician and had been playing in Florida for a week—when he got back I told him we had a restaurant to review, but it was Maundy Thursday and he had to play at a local church’s Seder supper. No one from work was free to go with me. I hung out at the Seder for a while trying to pick someone off. Nope, many were sorely tried in their religious convictions when they heard it was Muse in the Harbor that I was reviewing, but they all stuck to their meal plans. Eventually I headed off to sit outside of our local IGA, Schiavoni’s, in hopes of running into someone I know. I hadn’t ruled out inviting a perfect stranger along but no “perfect” specimens presented themselves. I was tempted to ask an obese girl who walked by carrying her shoulder bag like a tourist— because she made me look thin—but ultimately I toddled over to Muse on my own. Muse is a go-to place for me, not just because I live in Sag Harbor Village and Muse does a great prix fixe—but I like the place, the food and the service. Muse was celebrating its anniversary in this space. Just over a year ago they moved from Water Mill. The fish in the fish tank are a lot bigger than they were a year ago, the rest of the interior is much the same—clean, well designed. Chef Matthew Guiffrida

was talking to the East End’s favorite hostess, Jen the Beautiful, when I stepped in. Matt told me that the outdoor area on the south side of Muse is about to undergo a major overhaul complete with an art installation by Sam Panton of Terradesign Studio Inc. Also new will be a menu debuting just before Memorial Day weekend. New Beginnings are definitely in the air as Matt married his longtime girlfriend Sheila Mullahy recently. Also, look for more live music at Muse—Suzy on the Rocks, the Hamptons’ premier party band is set to play there next month. I hope that becomes a regular thing…I can walk home from Muse…generally. Jen suggested I try a Cucumbern-Cider to start. Crop Organic Cucumber Vodka, fresh local cider, a touch of St. Germaine and a slice of lime—very nice, s’more! drinkable, not at all sweet. Muse’s wine list includes local faves like Grapes of Roth, Peconic Bay and Wölffer, but I had to get myself home, so I stopped at one cocktail. The “Soup of the Moment” was Greek Corn Chowder and I went with it. Hearty but not heavy, corn plus feta equals salty with a nice texture. Yes, I tipped the bowl and pushed the parsley garnish aside to get at the last bit. If my husband had come along he probably would have ordered the Horseradish & Gorgonzola Crusted

Ribeye Steak with its tawny port demi glace. It does sound amazing. I wanted to try the Zucchini Flapjacks with Gramma G’s Cupolitina. Featuring eggplant, onion, celery, green pepper, capers, artichoke hearts and green and black olives with the flapjacks, Boursin cheese carpaccio and artichoke hummus—Matt explained that cupolitina is what his family made every year when their garden was overflowing. Bravo. Served in a neat stack, the richness of the eggplant and the olive-y undernotes melded into a fabu dish. I begged Matt to keep it on his new season’s menu. He said he’s been canning cupolitina for years and hopes to begin selling it by the jar this summer. I decided to try the Slightly Spicy Jumbo Shrimp Scampi with its creamed spinach—I was curious about the “carbonara cake” that it comes on. The cake was slightly smoky in flavor, very filling. The jumbo shrimp were cooked just right. The spinach was very rich and creamy. I’d order it again, but after this dose I was feeling very stuffed, far too stuffed for a dessert of Matt’s signature Zeppole—so I ordered one of his S’mores to go. I can’t resist that pillow of marshmallow.

Locally Sourced Meals For May By sILvIa LeHrer

It’s that magical time of the year when a blanket of green covers the landscape, tree branches are heavy with bloom and the sun consistently warms us. East End farmers’ markets and farm stands have opened. “Still a little cold for locally homegrown asparagus,” said Jo Halsey of the Green Thumb in Water Mill before this column went to press, but the availability of spinach, Swiss chard, kale, leeks, scallions and herbs is bounty enough, and all the inspiration I need. Leek frittata has been a personal favorite and a favorite of my cooking students over the years. Frittatas are practical to prepare as an appetizer to serve at room temperature or warm as a main dish for a light supper. It would make a delicious Mother’s Day brunch dish served with wedges of fontina cheese. The month of May also welcomes fresh, not frozen, Pacific wild salmon. For those who disdain eating farm-raised salmon due to the potentially harmful feed they’re given for color enhancement, this is your chance to benefit from the fine nutritious qualities of the fish, which is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. Swiss chard is a seasonal and delicious vegetable for both spring and fall. This is the perfect time to prepare Roasted Salmon with Swiss chard from my book, Savoring the Hamptons: Discovering the Food and Wine of Long Island’s East End. Happy spring!

FrIttata dI PorrI Cut into narrow wedges for serving as an appetizer or brunch and serve at room temperature with a narrow wedge of fontina cheese if desired. serves 10 to 12 as appetizer or 4 to 6 for brunch 2 large or 3 medium fresh leeks 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided Salt and freshly ground pepper 7 eggs Sliced chives for garnish

make mama a frittata!

1. Discard any bruised outer leaves of leek; keep the root end intact. With a sharp knife, cut the green tops of leek just above the white base at a 90-degree angle preserving the inner light green leaves. Cut the leek into quarters or thirds lengthwise from the root end. Hold the leek under a running faucet, then fan out the leaves allowing the water to rinse through the layers. Repeat with remaining leeks. Soak in a bowl of water for 15 to 20 minutes to rid of all grit. 2. Drain leeks and pat dry with paper towels. Cut into 1/2-inch slices, discarding the root end. Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add leeks, season with salt and pepper, and sauté slowly over low heat, stirring occasionally, about 18 to 20 minutes until tender. Transfer leeks to a strainer over a bowl to drain excess oil. Allow to cool. 3. In a large bowl, beat eggs with a pinch of salt. Add the leeks to the eggs; mix thoroughly and season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Add remaining tablespoon oil to the skillet the leeks cooked in and when warm add the leek mixture. Stir the eggs gently, pushing away from the side of the pan as they begin to set allowing the uncooked egg to run to the side of the pan. When the eggs are well set and the frittata is detached from the sides of the pan, about 6 to 7 minutes, remove from the heat. Allow to cool a bit if necessary before inverting onto a plate, a little larger in diameter than the diameter of the skillet. To invert put the plate face down over the pan, grasp the plate and skillet with potholders firmly and invert the pan to turn out the frittata. With a rubber spatula, carefully slide the frittata back into the skillet and cook over medium-low heat to cook the other side. Cook about 2 minutes and transfer frittata to a serving dish. Serve warm or at room temperature with chives and wedges of fontina cheese, if desired. Note: Can be prepared up to 2 days ahead and refrigerated, covered. Recipe adapted from Giuliano Bugialli’s The Fine Art of Italian Cooking (Quadrangle) roast saLmon FILLet WItH sWIss cHard An agreeable combination! serves 6 1 large bunch Swiss chard (about 2 pounds) 2 pounds center cut (Cont’d on next page)

Bargains on the East End

Meet Agent Paul Loeb of Lloyd’s Realty


loyd’s Realty Corporation Agent Paul Loeb grew up in Greenport. Prior to his career in real estate, Loeb did computer work at a large Manhattan investment banking firm and then at a large Manhattan law firm. After living in a few different locales, including Key West, Palm Springs, Fort Lauderdale and Dallas, Loeb came back to New York. How did you come to Greenport to stay? I was working and living in Manhattan and spent

weekends with family in Greenport. After awhile I purchased a few fixer-upper houses, renovated them and either rented or sold them. Eventually, I spent more time out East and began selling real estate here. I started selling in the spring of 2006, so that makes it seven years of having fun selling real estate. Where do you live now? I’m currently staying at my family’s large 1800s farmhouse. As the youngest of seven children, there are always family members coming in and out. Mostly my sister is there, but brothers, sisters, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews stop in. I still keep

my NYC apartment and go back and forth between Greenport and the city. What has changed over the years on the East End? As much as the North Fork has changed, a lot remains the same. The farms, the people, the welcoming atmosphere. What do you do when you’re not in the office? I visit with friends and learn about the area vineyards. I go to the North Fork Sound and Bay beaches, as well as South Fork’s ocean beaches and into Manhattan for theater, classical music, art, Broadway. I fly to Paris whenever I can. What brings you the most joy in living on the East End? At least once a day I round a corner and catch an amazing view—a sunset, calm or rough seas, a farm field. What do you see as a current trend in East End real estate? Prices are lower and buyers are looking and buying. What advice would you give homeowners who want to rent a property? Depersonalize it and make it clean. Think homey hotel. What’s the biggest mistake that people make when they try to sell a property themselves? Trying to sell it themselves is the biggest mistake. Leave it to the seasoned professionals who have done this before. What about your approach to selling real estate is unique? My approach is low pressure and high information/ education for buyers. What are the three most interesting properties that you are representing right now? Village Lane, Orient, a unique waterfront multifamily charmer. Two-Bedroom Owner’s Apartment, Three 1-Bedroom Seasonal Rentals. 2,900 sq. ft. built in 1880 and updated in 1990s. Easy Conversion to single family.
