There is a new app called “Blade” that at a moment’s notice will let you know when a helicopter going from Manhattan to the Hamptons has an extra seat you could book for as low as $450 instead of the usual $3,000. It used to be an exclusive thing, a mark of no expense too high, to take a helicopter to the Hamptons. Now all those people will have to look for something even more exclusive, since the riffraff just below is moving up (into the seats next to them). Time for a private rocket ship fired off from your townhouse to float down and land by parachute on your oceanfront mansion’s lawn. Yes? Nice 15-minute trip. -- DR 5.

The Kardashians have reportedly secured a retail space for the boutique that will provide a backdrop for E!’s upcoming series, Kourtney & Khloé Take the Hamptons. According to various sources, the famous sisters will set up shop behind The Driver’s Seat restaurant on Jobs Khloé Kardashian Lane in Southampton. Read our full Kardashian primer on page 111. A piece of Long Island may soon be named for South Forker Billy Joel. A bill in the State Legislature has proposed that part of Route 107 in Oyster Bay be named Billy Joel Boulevard! Speaking of celebrities and roadways, Amagansett’s Alec Baldwin was in a legal scuffle last week after police busted him for riding his bike against traffic down Fifth Avenue. They demanded that he show them some ID. How could that be necessary?! On a happier note, the busy Baldwin has joined Warren Beatty’s untitled Alec Baldwin Howard Hughes project. Baldwin will play Bob Maheu, the reclusive billionaire’s lawyer. Fellow South Forker Matthew Broderick has also signed on to star in the film. Hamptons residents Ed Burns and Christy Turlington Burns are now the faces of Calvin Klein’s Eternity and Eternity Night fragrances. The married couple posed together for the scents’ latest ad campaign. Turlington was the first model for Eternity, which debuted 25 years ago. Congratulations, Barbara Walters! The Southamptonite embraced two career milestones last week: ABC News headquarters in New York City was officially named in her honor, and she stepped down from her longtime post on The View. Walters Barbara Walters will reportedly remain an executive producer of the daytime series and make occasional special appearances. Foodie bits: World famous (Continued on page 80)

“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 renovation of the old seaside inn and spa this weekend.

By DAn rATTinEr

Week of May 23–30, 2014 Riders this past week: 14,812 Rider miles this past week: 135,621 DOWN IN THE TUBE A man who reportedly is buying a house for $163.4 million on Meadow Lane in Southampton without a broker was on the subway headed from Southampton to Shinnecock last Thursday. He refused to give his name. But it will break the record spent for a house without a broker by more than $15 million if true. NEW STOP Construction on a new subway stop between Napeague and Montauk will begin this weekend on the Old Montauk Highway in front of Gurney’s Montauk (formerly Gurney’s Inn.) As Gurney’s is atop a hill, there will be high-speed escalators to take people the long distance up to and down from the street to the platform. There will also be stairs for the not-sofaint of heart. The new owners of Gurney’s will be showing off some of the stunning

MEMORIAL DAY As we do every year, we take out the monuments to Memorial Day and place them in the center of all the platforms for this weekend. The monuments, all sculptures, are the works of the local Hamptons high school kids of each of the towns and change from year to year. Some sculptures are of soldiers or military hardware. This year in particular, when rushing to catch the train in Water Mill, be careful not to brush up against the bayonet that sticks out from the memorial on that platform. BEACH SPURS NOW OPEN The shuttle subways to the beach open between Main Street and Main Beach in East Hampton and Main Street and Coopers Beach in Southampton this weekend. The entrance in East Hampton is at the corner of Newtown and Main and in Southampton at Main and Jobs Lane. This year, thanks to the generosity of the mayors of these Villages, the “Beach Spurs,” as they are called, will operate free of charge from

one o ne of A Kind

the two locations. Bikinis are okay on the East Hampton Spur, but not on the Southampton one, where the regular cover-up village dress codes are in effect. Although the stairs down to the platform for the Beach Spurs is free, upon return, to continue on to other stops, you will have to swipe your subway card at the back of the platform to reach the rest of the subway system. Bathing suits are okay everywhere on the rest of the subway. But if they are wet, please sit with a towel between you and the seat. MUSIC New this year on the “Beach Spurs” are a series of white lifeguard life-preservers mounted on the walls for the whole one-mile length on both sides. They are not much use there in the spur itself, but if they run out of them down at the lifeguard stand they can always get more here. Loud music will be pumped out all day on the Spurs on a stereo system, provided by, of course, the Beach Boys. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Happy Birthday to Amos Malikovalov, the Chief of Train Scheduling on Hamptons Subway who came to America without proper papers, which we are sure he will have fixed soon. He turns 35 this Thursday. The party will of course be at Subway Headquarters in Hampton Bays. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE Well, we’re ready for the crowds and, as every year, I am excited to see what we do right and what we do wrong. You can never tell from year to year what will happen.

MEMORIAL DAY WARNINGS Police in the Hamptons are gearing up for Memorial Day weekend, and have issued a series of notices designed to prepare citizens. Here’s a small sample of the police warnings: 1. You may notice strangers staring at you. Don’t be alarmed. They are just checking to see if they recognize you from TV. 2. Groups of motorcyclists will be making noisy entrances onto narrow village streets at regular intervals. Don’t be alarmed—there aren’t really that many of them. In fact, after a while, you’ll notice it’s always the same group of motorcyclists, and they’re just going around in circles.

Old Man McGumbus, the 104-year-old WWII veteran, has issued what have to be considered credible threats against Brooklyn hipsters traveling on Shelter Island. 6. Police understand that one of the pleasures of coming to the East End is sampling the wonderful local produce. And granted, certain local produce is now in season—greens, definitely asparagus and maybe strawberries. Shoppers should be forewarned, however, that there is no way that the tomatoes, cherries, blueberries, zucchini, peaches or apples now available at area farmstands could possibly be “local” at this time of year. This is true even if you pay three times what you would at the supermarket—and you will. Shop (and deplete your bank account) at your own risk. 7. Despite the many attractions and activities planned for the weekend, there are still likely to be large groups of confused people wandering the streets looking for things to do. Please note that such loitering is considered a public nuisance by the police. If you notice groups of strangers wandering around with vacant expressions, you should supply them with a copy of this week’s edition of Dan’s Papers, with its complete listings of fun happenings across the East End. If the loiterers still can’t find something to do, then they may have to leave.

The tollhouse on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike at the turn of the 20th century

Toll Road

You Pay Your Shillings and Take the Turnpike to Sag Harbor By DAn rATTinEr


was looking through some back issues of Dan’s Papers the other day and came upon an article written in 1997 about the passage of what was then the new Comprehensive Plan for the Town of Southampton. This plan had cost the town several hundred thousand dollars to produce. It ran to hundreds of pages. And far down deep into it, there was this idea presented to put up a tollbooth on the Shinnecock Canal. It’s on pages 430-431. “…a vehicle toll collection system (at the Shinnecock Canal Bridge) would reduce traffic by 10% to 20% with 25% of this reduced traffic diverted to rail service…the cost of the toll changing by time of day, or day of week, or season, with higher tolls paid during peak periods of congestion and lower tolls during off-peak periods….The toll facility could be designed in keeping with Southampton’s resort and rural image perhaps featuring shingle facing, and a Shinnecock Canal visitor’s center.” It’s often mentioned by frustrated local and summer citizens that we ought to put a gate at the Shinnecock Canal, but this is the only time I ever recall it actually put down in a comprehensive town plan as a possibility. It was, of course, never carried out.

There was, however, way back in our history, a toll to take a trip on a highway to the most important destination on the East End at the time. It was a dirt road that went from Bridgehampton to Sag Harbor, and it thrived for two generations beginning in 1840. The Village of Sag Harbor had already become, by that time, a very important commercial hub. It had developed as one of the four premier whaling ports in the country—along with New Bedford, Nantucket and Lahaina, Hawaii. It had become so important, the federal government established a port of entry there. Earlier, in 1813, the British, out to teach America a lesson for declaring war on them in 1812, bombarded Sag Harbor from several men-o-war offshore and, briefly held Long Wharf before being driven off by American cannon fire from a nearby hilltop. By the 1820s, Sag Harbor was alive with crewmen, slaves, harpooners and people from far-off lands speaking more than a dozen foreign languages. There were slaves in Sag Harbor and on Shelter Island. It wasn’t until 1827 that slavery was declared illegal in New York State. In 1847, 60 whaling ships went around the world in search of whales from their home base at Long Wharf. Herman Melville mentions Sag Harbor in four chapters of Moby Dick. James Fenimore

Cooper wrote his first novel, Precaution, while at Duke Fordham’s Inn, and the Natty Bumppo character from the Leatherstocking Tales was based on a Sag Harbor whaling captain. It was, during all this time, difficult to get through the woods between Sag Harbor to the old towns along the ocean, East Hampton, Bridgehampton and Southampton, where the main road to New York City ran through. Paths had been hacked away for carts and carriages for the six miles to Bridgehampton or East Hampton. But overgrowth often slowed passage, and there were washouts and other problems along the way. In 1833, three men from this area approached the State Legislature in Albany, asking permission to build a toll road between Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor. There would be a tollhouse, a fence across it with a gate, and then the dirt road, fairly straight and well kept to allow a clear, wide passage between the section of Bridgehampton known as Bull’s Head—where the war memorial is today—and the outskirts of the already built-up Village of Sag Harbor at the Otter Pond Bridge. The men were Samuel L’Hommedieu Jr. and William R. Sleight of Sag Harbor and Abraham T. Rose of Bridgehampton. And on April 29, 1833 the state granted (Cont’d on next page)

Toll (Continued from previous page) them the right to form the Bull’s Head Turnpike Company, a corporation endowed with $4,000, that could sell shares to the general public at $20 each. “The said corporation shall make a good and sufficient turnpike road from Bull’s Head, to Sagg-Harbor aforesaid, commencing between the store of James M. Niles and the inn of Richard Gelston …” the grant states. The state also, defending its taxpayers, spelled out exactly what could be charged for the six-mile run between the two towns. It’s in the minutes of the activities of that day at the legislature, just before a passage authorizing the repair of roofs on the public buildings in Albany at a cost of $20,000 and a new law that would prohibit any private citizen in the state buying or selling a business using a fictitious name. The publication of these rates gives a remarkable window into what traffic was like back then. “For every wagon or cart drawn by two horses, mules or oxen, 8 cents. And for every additional horse, mule or ox, 2 cents. For every wagon or cart drawn by one horse or mule, 4 cents. For every coach, coachee, barouche, phaeton or other four-wheeled pleasure carriage drawn by two horses 16 cents. And for every additional horse, 3 cents. For every stage, wagon or coach, for the transportation of passengers drawn by two horses 12 cents. And for every additional horse, 3 cents. For every chair, or other two wheeled pleasure carriage or small wagon or

other four wheeled pleasure carriage drawn by one horse 6 cents. And for every additional horse, 3 cents. For every horse and rider, 3 cents. And for every horse—led or drove— without being attached to a carriage 1 cent. For every sled, or sleigh, drawn by one horse, mule or ox 4 cents. And for every additional horse, mule or ox 2 cents. For every score of cattle or mules 10 cents. For every score of hogs or sheep 4 cents. And in the same proportion for a greater or less number of cattle, mules, hogs or sheep.” Imagine reading that at the tollbooth to the Midtown Tunnel heading into Manhattan. And of course, there was no E-Z Pass. It took quite a while to put this toll road to Sag Harbor together. The company was open for business and began collecting tolls in 1837. The tollbooth itself was actually a house built on the west side of the road. It is believed the toll collector’s family lived there. One of the three founders of this corporation, Abraham Topping Rose, was a prominent attorney who had earned a law degree from Yale. He married the daughter of a former mayor of the City of New York and moved with her to Bridgehampton, where together they raised a family of six children. For many years, they lived in the Nathaniel Rogers mansion on the south side of the Montauk Highway at Bull’s Head, but around 1842 Rose built their own mansion across the street and facing the Nathaniel Rogers House. The mansion became known as the Abraham Rose House. Rose

became a county judge in 1847. He died in 1857 at the age of 65. The Bull’s Head & Sag Harbor Turnpike was a very successful venture. Four years after it opened, a second toll road was opened between East Hampton and Sag Harbor, in 1844, with similar prices. Things took a bit of a turn for the worse, however, when the Long Island Railroad opened a spur to Bridgehampton and then on to Sag Harbor in 1870. Many people now transported things by the railroad spur. The company stopped collecting tolls in 1901, and the town took control of the road and its abandoned tollhouse in 1906, shortly after the tollhouse for the East Hampton road was abandoned. The Bull’s Head toll house burned to the ground in 1909. As you know, today, there is no railroad anymore between Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor. The railroad just continues on out from Bridgehampton to East Hampton and Montauk. After the whaling industry came to a close, the commerce into and out of that town went into decline. In 1940, rail service between Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor ended, and the steel tracks were torn up for use in World War II. Today, Abraham Topping Rose’s house has been reborn and restored for about $17 million and has become the Topping Rose House. Across the street, the Nathaniel Rogers House is being restored to become the new Bridgehampton Historical Museum. It will open, hopefully, in 2015.

Throwing Them Back The 72 Little Fishes That Are Going All the Way to the Supreme Court By DAn rATTinEr


legal case involving undersized fish has been accepted for consideration by the Supreme Court. The case has implications for Montauk fishermen and fishermen everywhere in America where people get arrested for having caught and kept fish that were not legally big enough to be allowed to be kept. A little explanation might be in order here for those not familiar with commercial fishing laws. First of all, nobody is arguing that you should find a way for a fish that is too small to be told not to take the bait on your hook. But if a striped bass, for example, takes your hook or gets into your net and it turns out he is under a certain number of inches in length, you cannot keep him. You have to throw him back. This has nothing to do with trauma a young undersized fish might endure by being caught. Instead it is about whether the fish is deemed having a long future as a procreator of more fish, an activity considered valuable to man’s continuing accounting of the number of fish in the ocean of particular species in order to see there were enough for future people to eat and also to keep that species off the endangered fish list, which everybody agrees is a good idea.

The case of the itty bitty fish going to the Supreme Court begins on a commercial fishing boat named Miss Katie, which was trolling its nets off the west coast of Florida captained by John L. Yates. Yates was attempting to bring in lots and lots of red groupers. An officer for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, John Jones, aboard a separate boat, decided to motor over to the Miss Katie to do an inspection. There were a lot of undersized red groupers swimming around in the sea at that time. John Jones, who had also been deputized to enforce federal fisheries laws, said he found 72 undersized groupers among Captain Yates’ catch, set those 72 fish aside in wooden crates on the Miss Katie and told Yates to take them to port for seizure. Jones then left Captain Yates’ boat and motored off. On his way to port, Yates instructed his crew members—one of whom later tattled to the authorities—to throw overboard the undersized fish and replace them with larger fish. They did that. But in their apparent haste—were they fearful the feds might see them doing this?— they must not have done a very good job. When they got to shore, the authorities discovered that instead of 72 undersized fish in

When they got to shore, authorities discovered that instead of 72 undersized fish, there were only 69 fish below the 20-inch limit. the crates, there were 69 undersized fish below the 20-inch minimum. Suspicious, the authorities questioned the crew. And that’s when one of them coughed up the story. At a trial in Florida, Captain Yates was sentenced to 30 days in jail—plus three years of supervised release—for trying to conduct this ruse. He appealed, however, and he went about his business while waiting for the appeals court to rule, which it finally did, against him. He then asked his attorneys to appeal the above matter to the United States Supreme Court. The court could choose to not hear the case of the 69 undersized fishes and the other fishes that the authorities said were illegally returned to their families. They listened to lawyers for both sides. Yates’s original defense at his Florida trial in 2007 was that the 2002 law he had been told he’d violated was not (Cont’d on next page)

meant to include fish. It was a law, he said, designed to prevent white-collar crime. That law says, in part, that it is a crime to destroy or conceal “any record, document or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct or influence a federal investigation.” His lawyers at the time of the trial noted that the title of the law read DESTRUCTION, ALTERATION OR FALSIFICATION OF RECORDS IN FEDERAL INVESTIGATIONS AND BANKRUPTCY. However, a month ago, trying to persuade the Supreme Court NOT to take the case, the prosecution, headed up by Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr., argued that this law has been upheld as being applied to computer hard drives, compact discs, cocaine and a cement

In response, Captain Yates’s lawyers said having it applied to a little crime about a little fish was a stretch. They used the term “over-criminalization” in their brief. This was a case, they argued, where federal criminal law was being used in an overly aggressive manner.

The Solicitor General responded by saying that “the Supreme Court does not pass judgment on the wisdom of the scope of criminal law.” You can see that this is going back and forth. Finally, after that hearing one month ago, the Supreme Court did comment that indeed the 2002 law clearly was in place to “safeguard investors in public companies and restore trust in the financial markets following the collapse of Enron,” which had just happened a short time before the law was created. And so yes, maybe it could be argued that it didn’t apply to fish. And so it was that a couple weeks ago, the Supreme Court decided to take this case of Captain John L. Yates of Miss Katie, the captain a commercial fisherman in Florida who, seven years ago, was convicted of throwing fish back into the water that he was not supposed to throw back into the water. It is now on their docket, for the term that begins in October, and after due deliberations, probably over a course of months, there will be a decision finally putting an end to this short story. This thing does bring to mind a time three years ago when a NY State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) officer confiscated some porgies and flukes from the home of the family of a commercial fisherman. I had been by this home on Abraham’s Path in East Hampton many times and had bought fish there, leaving money in a box alongside the cooler. Anyway, this DEC agent—the DEC regulates state waters inside the 12 mile limit and the feds outside that—testified that he saw a sign for shellfish for sale out in front of the house and, when nobody answered his knock at the door, he went around the back, where he saw what he determined was an amount of fish over the legal commercial limit and confiscated it. He took the fish out to his truck and then it to Stuart’s Seafood Market about a half-mile away, where he sold them wholesale to that store for $202.75. He got a receipt for the money and later turned the $202.75 over to his bosses. This was a real minor league move by this agent, may believed. He should never have done what he did. At the time it was seen as just further abuse of local fishermen by one bunch of regulators or another. It also brought to mind a Congressional investigation that had started a few years earlier that led to the man who was running the fisheries enforcement arm of the federal agency NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) as if it were a rogue military unit, victimizing fisherman— particularly in the Northeast—with what the Senate called “excessively punitive and arbitrary enforcement” that not only collected exhorbitant fines for minor crimes but used some of that money for cars and boats and to go on grand vacations over the years, to the tune of millions of dollars. That man was neither prosecuted or fired at the time. But in true bureaucratic fashion, he was reassigned to another job at the NOAA, in a Gulf of Mexico office where he couldn’t continue bothering everybody about fishing in the Northeast. I believe they call that tenure. Or something.

Quarterly Meeting The Princess of Springtime Passes the Torch to King Summer


he slender young blond woman stepped up to the podium and looked out over the enormous crowd that had filled the field. She wore flowers in her hair, gold sandals and a white silk robe. She tapped the microphone. It was working. “Hello, everybody,” she shouted. “And welcome once again to the Hamptons.” The crowd cheered. “For those of you who don’t know me, I am the Princess of Springtime, and I hope you’ve enjoyed how things have gone so far. The snows of winter have melted. The flowers have bloomed. The crops are planted and the birds are singing their songs everywhere. And so it is my job today…” “Bah!” came a loud voice from a man sitting in the front row. This was Old Man Winter. He shook his cane at her. “As I was saying,” the Princess of Springtime continued, “it is my job today to announce that my term is nearly up for 2014.” There were groans from the crowd. Many people shouted, “No! No!” “That’s quite all right,” the Princess said, smiling and bowing her head, “there is even

better to come. Summer arrives on June 21 here in the Hamptons. If you are a local person, a tourist, a summer home owner…” “Bah” came from the front row. “That’s quite enough of that, Mr. Winter. We all know what a wonderful job you did, sir. It was amazing, it really was. But time marches on. And so I am honored, so honored, to be here today to present to you the man who will replace me when my term expires…” “Give her another term…” came a shout from the back of the crowd. Laughter followed. “…the man who we’ve all been waiting for, the man who does such good for the Hamptons every year. I am talking about King Summer. King, come on out here and tell them what they can expect.” There was a round of applause. And the Princess extended her right arm toward the edge of the stage. Her rings glittered in the spotlight. And there, charging in from stage right, came King Summer. He ran over to the Princess and kissed her on the forehead just below the daisy that stuck out from her headband, then waved to the crowd and shouted, “Hello, Hamptons!” “Hello, Hamptons!” came the raspy voice

from the front row, mocking him. The King, his gold crown pinned to his wavy black hair, looked briefly down at Old Man Winter, then spoke into the microphone the Princess had given him before she had made her departure. “Let’s give a big hand for Princess of Springtime,” he shouted. “She’s still got a lot to do, three weeks to go and all. Let’s hear it for her. What a job she had to do to face down Old Man Winter.” The crowd roared, some of the people stood and applauded and the Princess reappeared briefly, curtsied, and went back off. “Well,” the King said, “let me tell you what I’ve got for you. I’ve got sailing, fishing, baseball, tennis and golf. I’ve got beach volleyball, barbecues, beach fires and bonfires, paddleboarding and surf riding—all the lifeguards are getting their last-minute training as we speak. “I’ve got dining in fine restaurants, celebrities, shopping and house-hunting and loads and loads of parties and fundraisers for you to go to every weekend.

Dishing with Dan’s GrillHampton Host robert irvine By EriC FEiL


e’s cooked in the White House and was the head chef for the 2006 Academy Awards. He’s served meals to thousands of troops aboard aircraft carriers and in such combat regions as Afghanistan. He’s competed on The Next Iron Chef and hosts Food Network’s Restaurant: Impossible. He joined the British Royal Navy at 15 and worked aboard Her Majesty’s Royal Yacht Britannia, and was just honored by Gary Sinese at the 32nd Annual USO Metro Awards Dinner. For all that, celebrity chef Robert Irvine has never been to the Hamptons. Until now. But it took being named host of the second annual Dan’s GrillHampton to get

him here. On his regular hosting gig with Restaurant: Impossible, Irvine uses plenty of tough love during each episode’s 36-hour, $10,000 challenge to save a troubled restaurant from failure. When he arrives for GrillHampton under the big tent in Bridgehampton on July 11, he’ll be looking forward to a little more love and a little less tough as the team of eight NYC chefs competes against eight Hamptons chefs during the grill-off/tasting event that kicks off Dan’s Taste of Summer weekend. Irvine is no stranger to such fine food events, but he’s never seen one quite like Dan’s GrillHampton. As a host, “usually you watch, or you’re cooking,” the British chef points out. But

“here you get to eat, you get to laugh and joke around with some people,” he says excitedly of the evening, when guests get to not only see the 16 chefs working up tasty dishes on the grill, but also get to taste that food and vote on the night’s best—all while beer and cocktails are flowing and live music is rocking. “It should be a really fun time.” As Irvine prepares to descend upon Sayre Park, he takes a few moments from his 340-workdays-a-year schedule (no, that’s not a typo) to talk about how he entered the culinary world, his undying respect for our troops, the pressures of the kitchen and the power of ABBA (no, that’s not a typo, either).


real men, despite claims to the contrary, eat quiche. They make it, too. “When I was 11 years old, I joined a school home economics class, because it was 30 girls and me. And I thought my chances of getting a girlfriend were pretty good. I made my first quiche Lorraine and realized that eggs could sit in a pastry with milk, bacon and some cheese and make a meal, and from that point on it was all about cooking, and not about girls.”

Summertime fun lasts longer, especially with propane delivery and services from the experts at W.C. Esp. There is nothing better than propane for a perfect season, whether you are heating a swimming pool, gathering around a fire pit, relaxing in a hot tub or grilling on your outdoor BBQ.

Locavores are leading the way. Follow. “I love that farm-to-table, port-to-table, whatever you want to call that, is now being backed by the restaurants. If you look at the way we used to farm, it’s changed dramatically, in that farmers are going to the chefs and saying, ‘What do you need,’ and then creating product around that need. And chefs are also going to farmers and saying, ‘Well, listen, what do you have that is really cool and unusual, that a lot of people don’t know about,’ because chefs want to be different, they want to use food in a unique way.”

W.C. Esp offers automatic propane delivery, maintenance and repair, plus air conditioning services, wireless and wi-fi thermostats, 24-hour emergency response, maintenance plans, energy-saving comfort system upgrades - even marine services. When it comes to summer fun, no one answers the call for propane like W.C. Esp. Call us to learn more and ask about our new customer offer.

East End rock & Soul Hall of Fame (and Food Truck) By LLEWELLyn CHAPMAn


and still performs regularly. His autobiography, Ich esse gar kein Sauerkraut—Die Autobiografie, was published in 2011. I don’t speak German, I have no clue what that means. But I’m sure it’s a good read, unless it’s a cookbook.

Laura Branigan (1957–2004)—East Quogue. Chanteuse, who coupled big beautiful fouroctave voice with an aching vulnerability, a rare and compelling combination. Branigan had hits with Euro disco staple “Gloria” and the True Locals. Artists/Musical Personages of ballad “Solitaire,” and gave Michael Bolton his Distinction Born or residing on East End Both first major songwriting success with “How Am Summer and Winter. I Supposed to Live Without You?” Her devoted Gus Backus, Southampton—See Preamble fan club holds an annual celebration of her life SMF_Dans_FlwrTbl_May14_SMF_Dans_FlwrTbl_May14 5/15/14 10:48 AM Page 1 (Cont’d on next page) above). Gus recently turned 75, lives in Bavaria, and music.

recent East End arrival, I moved here from Nashville. Having been in the music biz in one incapacity or another for over 35 years, I process music through a filter derived in large part from ’50s and ’60s Top 40 AM Radio. My career may be deemed a cautionary tale, but the soundtrack is top-notch! But this is not about me. Via the web I recently reconnected with an old buddy, Gus Backus, a member of the ’50s doo-wop icons the Del Vikings (“Come Go with Me”). He reinvented himself overseas in the ’60s, as the “German Elvis,” enjoying a truly stellar career in music and film. Gus was born in Southampton in 1937, and in 1957, as one of two white singers in the Del Vikings, he broke some serious ground—they were the only integrated rock group to have major hits in the late ’50s. But this is not about him.

became balkanized, MTV radically transformed the music biz, and MP3s drastically degraded the audio experience. If you’re looking for Broadway, cabaret, classical, opera, rap, “alternative” anything, you won’t find it here, sorry. That said, I’m pleased to announce the Categories and Official Nominees for the 2014 EERSHOF Induction and Food Truck:

East End rocker Mick Jones

120 SNAKE HOLLOW ROAD, BRIDGEHAMPTON · 631.537.3700 · 32389

Gus’s Southampton roots got me wondering, what other artists and music luminaries called the East End home? What was pop music’s footprint out here—singers, bands, songwriters, record company rascals, you name it? I beat the hedgerows for details, and came up with enough data to warrant the establishment of an East End Rock & Soul Hall of Fame (and Food Truck). EERSHOF for short. Cleveland’s got the Rock & Roll HOF, Nashville’s got the Country music HOF. There’s even a Long Island Music HOF, in Port Jefferson—weighted overwhelmingly towards NYC and Nassau County. The East End should have one, too—after all, this is the most famous and fashionable slice of LI real estate. To paraphrase ZZ Top: We’re Bad, We’re Nationwide. So I drew up the following criteria: Timeframe: A 30-year cutoff, i.e. nothing more recent than 1984 for 2014’s nominees. Genres: Rock & Roll, R&B, Soul and Top 40 Radio from the golden era—before radio

Rock (Continued from previous page) Hugh Prestwood—Greenport. Premier songwriter for the last 30 years. Some of his music rocks, some rolls, but it’s all drenched in soul, elegantly crafted and hauntingly perceptive. Discovered in 1978 by Judy Collins, Hugh has penned songs for James Taylor, Anne Murray and many of Nashville’s finest artists of the last three decades. He’s “self-contained,” choosing not to co-write—a rare distinction for successful Nashville-oriented songwriters, and further evidence of his remarkable talent. Or antisocial tendencies. Steve Boone—Westhampton Beach. Westhampton High School graduate Boone played locally with the Kingsmen before joining the Lovin’ Spoonful as bass player. One of a few

U.S. bands to hold their own against the British Invasion, they scored seven Top 10 hits between ’64 and ’68. Boone co-wrote “You Didn’t Have to Be So Nice” and “Summer in the City.” The tall skinny one, he favored turtlenecks and Guild Starfire basses. Joe Butler—Westhampton. Drummer with the Lovin’ Spoonful. Stationed at Suffolk County Air Force Base in 1961, Butler played with Boone in the Kingsmen, joining the Spoonful in ’64. He was usually seated behind a really small drum kit, typical of mid-’60s bands, sporting a French sailor shirt. Alexander “Sascha” Burland—Bridgehampton. The composer/arranger owned a recording

Teo Macero (1925–2008)—Quogue. A distinguished record producer, composer and arranger. Macero produced landmark recordings by Duke Ellington, Thelonius Monk, Charlie Mingus, Dave Brubeck and many more. He made the HOF cut for producing three albums by Robert “Simply Irresistible” Palmer, and Miles Davis’s startlingly bottom-heavy electrified LPs, Bitches Brew and On the Corner. Some call them jazz, some call them fusion, I call them “Rock & Soul and a whole lot mo’.”

Ahmet Ertegun (1923 – 2006)—Southampton. Record company mogul founded Atlantic Records in 1947. Producer, songwriter, raconteur, bon vivant. He ran with everyone from Aretha to Led Zeppelin, yet his favorite vocalist was Fred Astaire, whose flawless enunciation and respect for lyrics endeared him to many songwriters of the day. Pop music without Ahmet’s contribution is simply unimaginable; the inaugural EERSHOF Food Truck will be configured in his honor. (See below)

Jerry Wexler (1917–2008)—East Hampton. Record producer, journalist, record executive. As a Billboard magazine writer in 1948, Wexler coined the term “rhythm and blues,” then proceeded to help bring R&B to its fullest flowering. Joining forces with Ahmet Ertegun in 1953, he was instrumental in Atlantic’s creation of the greatest catalog of R&B, soul, jazz, and rock ever, in my humble opinion. Wexler and Ertegun each deserve an entire Hall unto themselves, but real estate is so pricey out here.

studio in Bridgehampton in the ’70s. Burland makes the HOF for two stunning achievements. In 1959, following the success of David Seville’s Alvin and the Chipmunks comedy records, with those really annoying sped-up vocals, Burland and partner Don Elliott responded with the Nutty Squirrels self-titled LP. It featured bebop scat singing in a demented upper register, beatnik-inflected lyrics and, astonishingly, two songs that made the charts: “Uh! Oh! Part 1” reached #45, and “Uh! Oh! Part 2” peaked at #14. Burland wrote many TV and radio jingles, and in 1966 a studio group billed as the T-Bones took a tune he’d written for Alka Seltzer, “No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach’s In),” all the way to #3. A Nutty Squirrels reunion is being planned, hopefully in time for the Induction Ceremony.

Jimmy Buffett—North Haven. Alabamaraised migratory songbird. Parrot to be exact. In hush puppies or flip-flops, he has surefootedly remained among top-touring acts for decades, with whip-smart songwriting, a former journalist’s gift for storytelling and an abundant generosity of spirit—tequila. Buffett has balmy Gulf & Western roots, (Cont’d on next page)


May 23, 2014 Page 97


Mick Jones—East Hampton. UK native, creator, guitarist and leader of arenarock immortals Foreigner. Hot blooded and beautifully melodic, too. Extra credit for early work with Johnny Hallyday; he survived French rock & roll (easiest oxymoron ever) to become a genuine juke box hero. Stars & Bars. Bands/Singers That rocked the East End, Delighting Club owners and Liquor Distributors Alike. Young Rascals—Of NJ/Westchester origin, this blue-eyed soul quartet was discovered in 1965 while serving as house band at The Barge, on Dune Road in East Quogue. (If you aren’t familiar with their string of superb hits and just-as-fine near-misses, you have no business reading any further. Please go directly to the Police Blotter and check up on your neighbors.) Lead singer Felix Cavaliere made the 600-pound combination of Hammond Organ & Leslie Tallboy speaker a mandatory component of every LI band to follow the Rascals. He put hundreds of chiropractors’ kids through college, and should be inducted into their HOF, if there’s any justice in this world. Rat Race Choir—White Plains natives, this band took up regular summer residence in Southampton for a number of years. While they never became a recording act of note, they drove hordes of summertime celebrants crazy, with superb musicianship and very large amplifiers. I had the dubious fortune of being in a cover band with a former RRC keyboardplayer. The gale-force breeze from his speaker cabinets was invigorating, but my hearing has never recovered. Twisted Sister—Dee Snider’s colorful troupe of screaming shredders got a lot of practice playing the Mad Hatter club in East Quogue. They first appeared there in the summer of ’73 (pre-Dee), and worked there often throughout their formative years. Good taste is timeless. You may be thinking there are few true locals, and not many nominees of any type—but that’s okay. Exclusive area, exclusive HOF. As now conceived, it could easily squeeze into a small nook of the original Parrish Art Museum. Once funding is secured, plans call for the creation of the EERSHOF Food Truck. Chefs have become the new rock stars, foodies the new groupies. The roll-out version will honor Ahmet Ertegun, offering kebabs, Turkish taffy and raki. Plans call for a Jimmy Buffett Buffet version: boiled shrimp, sponge cake, margaritas. (EMS personnel will be on hand to respond to any outbreak of Parrot-tonitis.) Yum. This is a work in progress, corrections are welcome. The HOF is in particular need of photos, posters, police reports and ER records which are the lifeblood of Rock & Soul scholarship.

Program notes for the 2014 EErSHoF induction Ceremony Music to be performed will include the following adaptations of classic Rock & Soul songs. (With or without the Nutty Squirrels.) “Sag Harbor Lights”—The Platters “Gimme Shelter Island”—Rolling Stones “Riverhead Deep, Montauk High”— Ike & Tina Turner “Sweet Home Lynyrd Skynyrd

but he can rock hard, with some surprisingly potent sidemen (and sidewomen) over the years. Look up the complete roster of his Coral Reefer band, and you will be amazed. I was.

Irvine (Continued from page 88) face, because there’s always somebody less fortunate than you. If each and every one of us does something for one person less fortunate than ourselves every day of our lives—it can be buying them a cup of coffee—these are the things that define us as human beings. Inspiration for me comes from little kids with cancer, inspiration for me comes from service men and women who’ve been injured in the line of duty and they have the most amazing attitude. It could be a book, a magazine. Inspiration comes in many forms, every minute of every day.” you can’t say enough about supporting our troops “Every moment I get, I talk about it. Every

restaurant I talk to, every owner, on my shows, in my interviews, our warriors have given everything possible in their life, no matter where they are in the world, people are standing watch so we can have freedom, and we must never forget that. Something happens and everyone is aware, but then the country gets quiet again, and then people get frustrated because they have to wait at an airport because somebody is stopped to empty a bag, but the alternatives are not very pleasant.” nobody’s perfect…just close to it “Every [episode of Restaurant: Impossible] in my mind is memorable for a different reason, whether it’s the guy who wanted to punch me or the guy who went from a bankrupt state to

making millions. What’s cool about the show is, out of the first 100 episodes, we’re 78% successful—that’s pretty good odds.” it’s a labor of love “When we cook food, no matter where you’re a chef, you’re giving a piece of yourself in whatever you cook. It’s very emotional, being a cook, giving a piece of myself to somebody every day. It’s hard work; you don’t get paid a lot of money—at least not as much as people think. It’s a labor of love, not a labor of getting rich quick. I’m still working to master the craft, but it’s the love of seeing people’s faces when they like what I cook, the fact that people are eating a full plate, almost licking their plate, that’s the biggest high-five you can get. That’s really special.” Live the sweet life “I believe that every meal should end in dessert, in some way, shape or form. Because it signifies to the brain that the meal is finished. It can be a square of chocolate cake at lunch or dinner, or jelly on toast in the morning.” About that favorite meal… “I would start with a roasted beet salad, a little feta cheese, red onion and a balsamic vinaigrette. Then I would go into a seared piece of salmon with a chilled salad with a lemon dressing and that piece of salmon on top, and then it would be an apple pie.”

Grilling rules. Just know the rules. “The rules are very simple. Don’t take the meat out of the refrigerator and cook it—you have to bring the meat up to room temperature before you cook it. You’ve got to remember to let it sit on the side for 5 to 10 minutes after you cook it to let the juices to go back into it. And don’t have the grill up so high!” you want more rules? “People know how to barbecue nowadays— there have been 1,001 shows on it, there’s 200 million books about it, the internet is full of it. Just have fun, have a cold beer and be around back.”

Mangia! Mangia!

if you want to be named one of the “25 Fittest Guys in America” by Men’s Fitness magazine, turn up the ABBA “That is correct. I listen to ‘Mamma Mia’ and ‘The Winner Takes It All’ and all these things, and I figured out that when I do my cardio in the morning, I do 20 minutes to get all warm and I listen to ABBA or Celine Dion or Pink, one of my new favorites, and that’s what I do.”

Famous last words… “I give tough love, but I’m also a great motivator. I don’t apologize for being that tough guy on TV. In life, I expect everyone to have the same work ethic as me, and that means excellence has to be achieved and you have to give it all, every day.”

oy Lichtenstein’s sculptures, “Tokyo Brushstroke I” and “Tokyo Brushstroke II” (1994) recently installed in front of the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, make a bold and monumental mark on the East End. The historical reach of creativity on the East End is global and the installation of “Tokyo Brushstroke I” and “Tokyo Brushstroke II” exemplifies this. The Parrish Art Museum is now intrinsically linked to Tokyo, the location where the original 1994 sculpture was installed (the Parrish has the artist’s proof), as well as to international institutions displaying other works in the series, including the Hirshhorn

Museum in Washington, D.C., the National Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Museo de Arte de Ponce in Puerto Rico, The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the Pontiac Marina in Singapore, among others. In conjunction with the new installation, the Parrish Art Museum plans to host educational events, such as screening Checkerboard Films’ Roy Lichtenstein: Toyko Brushstrokes, a 1995

documentary produced by Edgar B. Howard and directed by Mark Trottenberg, which shows the artist and artwork in process—concluding with the final installation. The recent Water Mill installation could easily have been the subject of a sequel documentary. With a slightly different start-to-finish path, the museum’s yearlong process of acquiring “Tokyo Brushstrokes” came about in a holistic way—made possible through the Parrish’s close relationship with Dorothy Lichtenstein and her Roy Lichtenstein Foundation Collection, from which the work is on long-term loan. After the artist’s death, in 1997, it was specified that the work, a unique artist’s proof of the 1994 sculptures, could only be made for an American museum. From there, Paul Amaral, of Amaral Custom Fabrication in Rhode Island, fabricated the “Brushstrokes”—thanks in large part to patrons Glenn and Amanda Fuhrman and their Fuhrman Family Foundation. The placement of the work on the museum’s front lawn was decided in conjunction with the museum’s architects, Herzog & de Meuron. The installation crew included two members of The Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, seven from Marshall Fine Arts fine art movers and installers, as well as Metro Crane owner Ronnie DeMarchis and a fabricator from the Amaral Group. “Tokyo Brushstroke I” was installed by crane into a cement brace. Weighing more than 12,000 pounds, the 33’ tall sculpture is constructed in two pieces, which were joined on site. “Tokyo Brushstroke II,” 19’ tall and approximately 5,000 pounds, was installed near Montauk Highway. Well-known for his “handmade readymade” giant comics and use of Ben-Day dots, Roy Lichtenstein was also fascinated by the brushstroke. He made brushstroke paintings, collages, even brushstroke chairs, highlighting the brushstroke itself as an icon of his work as a painter.“It’s a symbol of something it isn’t, and that is part of the irony I’m interested in,” Lichtenstein said of his “Toyko Brushstrokes.” For Terrie Sultan, Executive Director of the Parrish Art Museum, Lichtenstein’s “Brushstrokes” signify the museum’s core value in illuminating the process of making art. Key pieces for Lichtenstein and for the Museum, the Brushstrokes will be among the most viewed artworks on the East End.

n recent years, it has developed into “the place to be,” a cemetery where you can be buried next to world famous artists and writers. But to the locals, the Green River Cemetery on Accabonac Road in Springs represents memories, peace and spirituality. “The locals, who make up the base of our church membership, have been burying their deceased family members there for at least the last 100 years,” says Pastor Tony Larson from Springs Community Presbyterian Church. He has performed funeral services in the nondenominational cemetery—several in the front’s original two acres, established in 1902, and a few in the back acre, which was added in 1991. “The cemetery reflects the unique nature of this community,” says Pastor Steve Howarth of The First Presbyterian Church of Amagansett, “and there are generations of families represented there. It’s very much a Bonac (local) cemetery.” “It’s a real combination,” says Hugh King, Town Crier of East Hampton and Director of the Home Sweet Home Museum. “Sure there are local people buried there, but then you have all the famous artists and writers who jumped into the cemetery after Pollock!” The cemetery was chartered in 1902, but there are gravestones from earlier than that. People used to bury their relatives on their own property if they didn’t want to bury them in the

churchyard, and when the cemetery opened, they moved them. “There are some stones that were moved there, because if you are standing in front of the cemetery, on the right side toward the back, there are some Civil War soldiers buried there,” says King, whose parents, grandparents and brother are buried in the cemetery. But he doesn’t have a plot for himself. All cemeteries tell stories—by what’s found on grave markers, by the families that are collected

there, by the discovery that longevity ran in one family, and another family had more than their share of tragedy. But the Green River Cemetery holds another unique draw for visitors—the artists and writers who are buried there, not all of them former local residences, but also people from “away.” There’s the exceptional art and architectural design, not to mention the added attraction of the Jackson Pollock grave, a multi-ton boulder. “Lee, Jackson’s wife, ordered a bigger

gravestone to replace the original one,” says Helen Harrison, art historian and Director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in East Hampton, which is the former home and studio of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, two of the most famous Abstract Expressionist painters. Harrison also co-authored Hamptons Bohemia: Two Centuries of Artists and Writers on the Beach with Constance Ayers. “The original gravestone was a medium granite boulder from the (Cont’d on page 108)

Bernard Springsteel Works Find Home in Bridgehampton By rUTH THoMAS

ecently on view at the Corwith House in Brideghampton was an exhibition of watercolors by North Fork artist Bernard Springsteel called “Landscapes of Eastern Long Island.” Springsteel’s 36 paintings captured the beauty and texture of the East End, depicting old barns, farmhouses and watercraft that have endured the test of time. A fitting location for the show, the Corwith House dates back to 1830 and is listed on the New York State Registry of Historic Places and is part of the Bridgehampton Historical Society (now known at the Bridgehampton Museum)—a two-acre plot on Main Street that also includes two contemporary barns, a wheelwright’s shop (c. 1870), a 1907 jail and an outhouse (c.1890). Now in his 80s, Springsteel has generously donated 31 of the 36 watercolor paintings that were on exhibit at the Bridgehampton Museum to their permanent collection. The works will be stored in the Bridgehampton Museum Archives Building until the work on the Nathaniel Rogers House is completed. (The Bridgehampton Society became the steward of the 1840 Nathaniel Rogers House located on the southeast corner of Montauk Highway and Ocean Road in 2003.) The Society, in collaboration with the Town of Southampton, is engaged in a major restoration project of the Nathaniel Rogers House, which is slated to open in December 2015. Springsteel’s watercolors will then be moved to the Nathaniel Rogers

House permanently and displayed in revolving exhibitions. According to the Museum’s Collections Manager, Curator and Archivist, Jane Greene, “This represents another documentation of the evolving landscapes on the East End and it fulfills our mission to accurately preserve history by documenting it through paintings of local landscapes.” Springsteel’s donation to the Bridgehampton Museum is both rewarding to the museum and to Springsteel himself. He felt a need to place the paintings where they would be appreciated. Now they will be exhibited and

preserved in perpetuity. Bernard Herbert Springsteel has a B.F.A. from Pratt Institute. After 30 years of experience as an art director in the magazine and book publishing industry, he began his career in fine arts as both a sculptor and painter. His paintings reflect local barns, old farmhouses, boats, watercrafts, and lighthouses. Springsteel knows both the North and South Forks very well, as he has resided in Southold for the past 12 years. He remarks, “The area is rich in landscapes and has a lot of character.” He often drives around with his camera,

looking for something “artistically appealing to photograph.” He takes several photographs from different viewpoints and brings them back to his studio, where he puts his compositions together. Springsteel is attracted to objects “that have weathered the test of time and are starting to age,” like an old barn, or old boat. His watercolor paintings are all about the composition and the effect time has played on them. The painter is excited to “capture things before they disappear.” Springsteel observes, “My watercolor paintings reflect somewhat different themes but nevertheless reflect the world as it is and particularly the way it was

before us. I particularly like to find old homes and watercraft that have seen the test of time and now make a statement of their antiquity.” Springsteel has published three books— Carpentry & Rough Wood, Bernard Herbert Springsteel, A Life in Art, and The Figure of Life. His artworks have been exhibited at many art galleries including at the Suffolk County Historical Society (adding several watercolors to their permanent collection in 2012), the Salmagundi Club, Terrence Joyce Gallery, deCordova Gallery, East End Arts Council (where he was awarded Honorable Mention for “Boats”), and Pratt Institute Gallery (where

his watercolor “Down Home” resides in their permanent collection). His works are also found in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Historical Society. The artist continues to paint mostly oil paintings and figurative paintings as well as drawings. With the goal of the Bridgehampton Museum and the Town of Southampton to make the Nathaniel Rogers House once again a landmark and a cultural resource center for the community, Springsteel’s donation is a valuable contribution to this effort.

Green River (Cont’d from page 105) pile behind his house,” says Harrison. “Soon after, Lee told Jeffrey Potter that she was looking for another one. The current granite boulder was found in the neighborhood. In 1957, Potter, a marine contractor, and Harry Cullum excavated it and moved it to the cemetery on a flatbed. Potter describes the ordeal in his 1985 book, To A Violent Grave; An Oral Biography of Jackson Pollock. Lee’s stone is the original stone, moved to the base of the plot.” Harrison gave her husband, painter Roy Nicholson, a plot for his birthday in 1993, and it will their final resting place. Elena Prohaska Glinn, an art curator and appraiser, native of the East End and daughter of painter and illustrator Ray Prohaska, describes her recollections of some of the

notables buried in the Green River Cemetery, whom she knew personally: “James Brooks, a gentle soul and one of America’s great Abstract Expressionists; painter Jimmy Ernst, who had a very strong spiritual nature; Frank O’Hara, a sensational poet; painter Alfonso Ossorio, he was like royalty in East Hampton, eccentric and very regal; Elaine de Kooning, an Abstract Expressionist and definitely the woman behind the man (Willem de Kooning); Jean Stafford and husband A. J. Liebling, two distinguished writers; Jackson Pollock, well, he started it all. “I did know him,” says Prohaska Glinn, “because our house was on Main Street, Amagansett. He would stop by periodically and say hello to my parents, and come and have a drink in the morning. We liked him. He was a

cowboy; Lee Krasner, she was overshadowed by Jackson, but she should be well appreciated for her paintings.” Some of the more recent burials include: Ibram Lassaw, abstract sculptor, in 2003, William S. Lieberman, curator of the Museum of Modern Art, in 2005, Dan Christensen, Color Field painter, in 2007 and Charles Gwathmey, architect, in 2009. As for the originals: “It started out for the old-time residents but then the artists started getting involved,” says Freston Anderson, Superintendent of the Green River Cemetery Association. His parents and grandfather are buried there, and he has a plot for himself and his wife, Heather. “I know there’s one slave buried in there,” says Anderson. “I can visualize her tombstone but I can’t give you her name, at the moment. It’s right up at what they call ‘the top of the Horseshoe.’ The original cemetery was nothing but a horseshoe. Up at the very top of it is Jackson Pollock, and almost directly across from him is this slave. The new part is called ‘the part in the back.’ And as far as I can tell, this will be it. And right now there are no plots for sale.” As for the name, Green River, where does it come from? “The section of Springs where the Cemetery is, is known as Green River,” says Heather Anderson, President of the Green River Cemetery Association. “One of the explanations is that somebody who lived there came from some place in New England that was called Green River. That’s one of the local stories. Then there was a family of Millers that lived there and they were always known as the Green River Millers, as opposed to the Fireplace Millers, who lived over on Springs Fireplace. It was an old way of denoting which Miller family you came from. Then it kind of spread to the area which is now known as Green River.” Green River Cemetery is located off of Accabonac Road in Springs. Visitors are encouraged to first stop and see Helen Harrison at the PollockKrasner House for a copy of the map.

Stars Make Their Bay Street Debut in “Conviction”


ay Street Theater kicks off its summer 2014 season with the world premiere of Carey Crim’s Conviction, a drama about a teacher whose life is torn apart by a damning accusation. Directed by new artistic director Scott Schwartz, Conviction stars Garret Dillahunt and Sarah Paulson, who are known for their various film and television projects. Viewers will recognize Dillahunt from the Fox comedy Raising Hope, while Paulson is one of the stars of the horror series American Horror Story. Dan’s Papers spoke with Dillahunt and Paulson about their roles in Conviction, their various projects both past and present, and more.

“Rehearsals are going well,” Paulson says. “We don’t have very much time—it’s a short rehearsal schedule. Actors like to make themselves crazy,” she laughs. Paulson is grateful to be able to have Crim on-hand. “The great thing about a world premiere is that it’s very much a collaborative process. Carey’s a wonderful writer. She’s very receptive when we have questions.” Paulson notes that rehearsals have been smooth, with only minor script changes, and that she was drawn to the project because

of the character she’s playing. “The thing that’s the most extraordinary about her is that she’s even-keeled, pragmatic and she’s an extreme situation,” Paulson says, careful not to spoil any of the plot. “She’s a very strong woman. To me, she’s a mother before anything else. And she’s an ER nurse, so she’s used to needing be in [control]. She doesn’t lead with her emotions.” Paulson is also happy to be back on stage. “I haven’t done a play since Talley’s Folly by Lanford Wilson last year. I like to do theater, not only because of the collaboration, but also that you don’t have to wait long for it to come out. It’s an incredible thing... being able to have a character’s journey go all the way in one night.” Due to her shooting schedule for American Horror Story, Paulson chooses her other projects carefully. “I had just come off American Horror Story: Asylum, and my character went through these tremendous acts of violence perpetrated against her. Talley’s Folly, which was much lighter, was certainly the right thing to do at the time.” Dillahunt echoes Paulson’s enthusiasm for Conviction. “I read it and it stuck with me,” he says. “I like projects that do that. Something is happening on an unconscious level, and I always listen to that when picking what [roles] to do next.” While Dillahunt may not be a household name, he has an extensive resume of diverse roles. “I don’t think I have a preference, really… theater, film, television. It’s all about the role. Is it interesting? Is it different than what I just did?” Dillahunt has avoided typecasting throughout his career, from playing the violent villain in director Dennis Iliadis’s 2009 remake of Last House on the Left to the lovable young grandfather Burt in Raising Hope. “I always thought that is what actors are supposed to do: stand in lots of different peoples’ shoes. I am grateful that I’ve had that opportunity.” While Paulson and Dillahunt are starring opposite each other for the first time, they have worked on several of the same projects. “I think [Garret] is truly one of the most underrated actors,” Paulson says. “No matter what he’s in, he’s the best.” Both actors appeared on HBO’s Deadwood and in the film 12 Years a Slave, but never had scenes together. “I am very excited to finally have some interaction with Sarah,” Dillahunt notes. “She is a monster talent whose work I have admired for a long time. Luckily, she wanted to work with me, too!” Both Paulson and Dillahunt hope audiences will think about Conviction long after the play ends. “It’s different to see a classic play revived. In a new play, it’s exciting to go in knowing as little as possible,” Paulson says. Dillahunt thinks the play will provide audiences with something to talk about. “I hope it sticks with them as much as it did with me when I first read it. If there are after-theater drinks or eats, I expect some lively debate will be sparked.”

Krash Kourse: Kourtney & Khloe Koming to the Hamptons


his fall, E! will present Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons, the latest reality series focusing on the high-profile Kardashian family. The show will follow Kourtney and Khloe’s summer in the Hamptons as they open up their DASH pop-up boutique at 64 Jobs Lane in Southampton Village and will no doubt focus on the sisters’ social outings and personal lives. It’s hard to read a newspaper or go online without hearing something about the tabloidprone family, but for the uninitiated, here’s everything you need to know. Kourtney Kardashian: The eldest Kardashian sister has two children, Mason and Penelope, with Scott Disick, who grew up in Eastport and went to the Ross School. Disick has been the subject of controversy, with the show exposing his ongoing alcohol abuse. Kourtney has continually threatened to leave Disick if he doesn’t get help for his problems, and famously shocked him when she declared, “I love Mason more than I love you!” during an ugly fight about his lifestyle. Despite this, the two have largely stayed together over the years.

finished in second place. Rob designed “Arthur George Socks.” Kris Jenner: The family matriarch also serves as manager to her kids. Kris is currently separated from her husband of 23 years, Bruce Jenner, and was previously married to lawyer Robert Kardashian, who aided in O.J. Simpson’s defense during his 1994 murder trial. She was friends with Nicole Brown Simpson. Kris is often shown meddling in her kids’ lives and dealing with her own drama. Her various plastic surgeries have been highly publicized, which Kris is not hesitant to discuss. Kris also starred in a short-lived daytime talk show in 2013. Bruce Jenner: An Olympic champion and motivational speaker, Bruce has acted as a

Khloe Kardashian: Khloe became the subject of a paternity scandal when rumors surfaced that she wasn’t the biological daughter of her late father, Robert, after mom Kris confessed to having an affair around the time she became pregnant. The family shot down the rumors, but the paternity “story” appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Khloe and basketball player Lamar Odom, who also had their own series, married weeks after meeting. Khloe recently filed for divorce from Odom, who recently joined the New York Knicks. Kim Kardashian: This beautiful socialite became one of the most talked-about women in the world when a sex tape featuring her and singer Ray J hit the web. The publicity led to the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which chronicled the lives of Kim, her sisters, her brother Rob, mother Kris Jenner and stepfather Bruce Jenner. Kim married basketball player Kris Humphries in 2011 in a televised wedding and infamously divorced him after just 72 days. Kim is currently engaged to rapper Kanye West, with whom she has a daughter, North (Editor’s Note: Yes, her name is North West). rob Kardashian: Rob, who has appeared as a supporting player in the ongoing Kardashian saga, broke out of his shell when he participated in Dancing With the Stars and

father figure to the Kardashian sisters since marrying Kris in 1991. Bruce has several children of his own from three marriages, including Burt, Casey, Brandon, Brody, and Kris’s daughters Kendall and Kylie. He hit the tabloids last year when he reportedly had a tracheal shave, which flattens the Adam’s apple, leading many to speculate he was planning on undergoing sex reassignment surgery. Bruce has denied any plans to have a sex change.

is Composting in the Future for the East End?


rom Ralph Lauren to Starbucks, hot yoga to Citarella, what’s trendy in New York City soon makes its way to the East End. Could composting be next? The NYC Compost Project began in 1993 as a way to educate the public about the benefits of composting by providing workshops and howto classes on different composting methods. Low-cost bins are available to city residents and the Department of Sanitation recently extend its pilot program to Park Slope. (It has already been active in Manhattan, Staten Island and the Bronx.) Like other residential and commercial trash, compost can be brought to the curb for

pick-up on scheduled days. While there’s no municipal trash pick-up services on the East End, there have been efforts in the past to promote composting as an environmentally friendly alternative to wet trash incineration. In 1984, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) issued a “Closure of Active Solid Waste Landfills Enforcement Policy,” which sought to eliminate “existing unlawful landfills that are contaminating the environment…to encourage new, preferably regionalized, longterm comprehensive solid waste management programs, and to enhance implementation of the state’s declared policy to promote waste reduction and recycling.”


Composting leaves you with rich soil for your garden.


(Source: DEE-8: Closure of Active Solid Waste Landfills Enforcement Policy) Recycling is now ubiquitous, but 30 years ago it was still a concept unfamiliar to many parts of the United States. Dr. Barry Commoner, recognized as one of the founders of the modern environmental movement, worked with the East Hampton Town Board in the mid-80s to implement a recycling and composting pilot program. “As part of the [1988] pilot study, Dr. Commoner’s team looked at the feasibility and costs of a full-scale recycling program for the town, and for other towns. They concluded that the Intensive Recycling System would work in all communities (towns and sections of large cities) where the housing is largely one- to four-family buildings and where residents are accustomed to…a drop-off system (such as in East Hampton).” (Source: Rachel’s Hazardous Waste News #108) So what happened? Despite the 98% purity of the compost generated under the pilot program, the DEC designated the material as “hazardous” and would not sanction it for landscaping. It wasn’t until 10 years later, in 1998, that the composting plant in East Hampton became operational and the public could finally benefit from the material it produced. Today, the town of East Hampton has no food waste composting program. Yard waste, such as leaves and brush, can be brought to the East Hampton Recycling Center. The facility turns it into mulch that is sold to commercial buyers for $115 per ton, while residents are allowed up to three 30-gallon containers per week at no charge. Shelter Island has the most expansive recycling program of all the municipalities on the East End, though even they don’t compost food waste. The town recycling center has weekly STOP days (Stop Throwing Out Pollutants) when residents may dispose of hazardous household chemicals. While East Hampton and Southampton have closed their centers for reusable goods, Shelter Island maintains an area where residents can drop off items that someone else may find useful. You know what they say: One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Food and paper waste make up the largest portion of the solid waste stream. As composting gains traction on the national stage and is proven a viable means to handle such waste, will the East End soon step up its programs?

Bideawee Helps Animals and Their Humans, Too By SUSAn SAiTEr SULLiVAn


transportation and burial of pets. A 4.5-acre pet memorial park is available to the public, and is open daily. Bideawee also helps pet owners with advanced planning for care and eventual burial of a pet, including those who are concerned that they may pre-decease their pet. The pet memorial park in Wantagh opened in 1916. The two memorial parks together contain the remains of more than 65,000 animals. This includes—not only cats and dogs—but various species such as monkeys, ferrets, a turtle that lived to the grand old age of 50, four New York City police horses and former President Richard Nixon’s dog Checkers. That’s a lot of love.

rees were bursting with buds, and a fragrant spring breeze from the Pine Barrens blew across the 150-acre Bideawee campus in Westhampton, but, Christine Russell, manager of the Adoption Center said, “It’s like Christmas around here.” The reason: Staff were scurrying around getting ready for a van with more than 30 rescued animals from Alabama, including some very lucky adult dogs who show promise to become top-notch pets, plus people-loving pussycats and some squirmy, wriggly puppies. Bideawee Animal Shelter, founded more than 110 years ago by Flora D’Auby Jenkins Kibbe, whose inspiration was a humane group in Paris, has three locations, with headquarters in New York City, and facilities in Wantagh and Westhampton. The word Bideawee is Scottish for “stay awhile,” which is what the organization hopes for—that animals will have a short stay and move on to homes. However, “We are unique here, as we provide a lifetime journey,” said Nancy Taylor, Bideawee President/CEO. Not only does Bideawee rescue animals and train families to adopt dogs and cats, but it offers many other services, including a pet playground open to the public for $40 annually ($25 for summer), veterinary hospitals for its own animals and for private patients, and pet cemeteries.

to about $3,500 per animal. Bideawee’s veterinary clinic serves not just Bideawee critters, but private patients as well. “It’s nice for animals that were adopted to have a veterinarian that they already know,” Taylor said. The future pets are spayed or neutered and kept on pain meds as they recover in the cozy facility, a former farmhouse with hardwood floors and a homey ambiance. The home was once enjoyed by the man whose donation, in 1956, made the Westhampton campus possible—author P.G. Wodehouse. His popular novels featuring comic upper-class English fictional characters made him one of Westhampton’s most famous residents. Bideawee provides grief counseling,

Adoption is a family affair

In the cheerful, sparkling Westhampton facility, a donated sound system pipes in soothing music to ease stress. All animals get two meals a day, and dogs go out three times a day, led by staff and the more than 100 volunteers. Because of meticulous screening and matching processes, Bideawee has a very low return rate on animals. As at most shelters, people find kittens hard to resist, but adult cats can be trickier to place. When a 15-year-old pussycat recently went to a new home, “It was an all-out celebration around here,” Taylor said. While other shelters accept any animal, Taylor said that Bideawee’s role is to take animals that it believes are adoptable and gets them super-ready, with comprehensive medical and dental care, obedience classes and dog training that includes cute tricks like rolling over and shaking hands, and socialization with animals and humans. “At night,” Taylor said, “the animals are put to bed with blankets, toys, cookies and a good-night kiss from staff and volunteers.” Adopters pay $150 for a dog or cat, $225 for a puppy; Bideawee depends completely on donations, and expenses add up

Stony Brook Southampton Develops Emerging Artists By EMMETT HAq


fter an extended period of intense upheaval for the little campus located just off Montauk Highway, the future looks sunny for Stony Brook Southampton. As has been well-documented in previous years, the campus (formerly Long Island University’s Southampton branch before its purchase by Stony Brook University in 2006) recently struggled through the displacement of the majority of its undergraduate components and the loss of various programs and services, but appears to have come out swinging. Besides the burgeoning Creative Writing and Literature; and Theatre and Film programs, which held out through the administrative turbulence alongside the Marine and Atmospheric Sciences program, the university has introduced a Doctorate of Physical Therapy program and—in anticipation of an upcoming affiliation agreement between Stony Brook and Southampton Hospital—some transplanted health science programs. Perhaps the campus’s largest claim to fame is the Southampton Writer’s Conference, now in its 39th consecutive year. This intensive midJuly event features workshops conducted by acclaimed writers and poets, including Roger Rosenblatt, Billy Collins, Terrance Hayes, Julia Glass, Meg Wolitzer, Matthew Klam, Patricia Marx, Libba Bray and many others. Christian McLean, coordinator of the conference, explained that efforts are made to cater to local residents. “We have the Listener’s Pass, which

is designed for locals,” says McLean. “This gives them access to all the bells and whistles of the conference except the actual workshops, which allows them to go to electives, readings, mini-workshops, receptions and lectures. It’s a great opportunity for anyone who loves books, but doesn’t actually write—or for anyone looking to take their first step into writing.” Free applications for the Listener’s Pass are still being accepted. Aside from the “headliner” workshops, the conference also offers “Finding Your Voice” workshops, which are opportunities for those who are just starting on their journey into the workshop experience. These courses are taught by graduate students in the Southampton Arts MFA program. “The Southampton International Theatre Festival is new this year too,” adds McLean. “It offers participants the opportunity to have their work (either a fully realized piece or a play in progress) read twice—first in a closed reading with one of our faculty giving feedback, then, after a few days of rewrites and edits, it’s read again. This second time, the reading is open to their fellow writers in the program, as well as the participants of the Southampton Writers Conference, Southampton Children’s Literature Conference and those who have signed up for the Listener’s Pass. There are also a series of plays by faculty and noted playwrights that will be read throughout the conference.” Additionally, the 20/20/20 Film Program has returned for its second year

Perhaps the campus’s largest claim to fame is the Southampton Writers Conference, now in its 39th consecutive year. running, offering filmmakers the opportunity to direct, shoot, edit and realize their films in 20 days, alongside the Children’s Lit Conference, which is an offshoot of the Writer’s Conference focused specifically on writing work aimed at children and young adults. The conference’s coordinators have also finalized an event in conjunction with The Moth Mainstage, which will be recorded on July 18 as part of the summer launch of the university’s literary journal, TSR: The Southampton Review. This event, entitled “Fish Out of Water,” will feature five stories (several of which are authored and will be read by SBU Southampton faculty members), and is open to the general public. The reading will be aired on 91.3 WRLIFM (among other, more remote stations) at a date to be determined in the future. Conference faculty also plan to hold various other readings and performances during this time. Not least because of the perennial success of the Southampton Writers Conference, the Southampton Arts program continues to grow, along with the increasing quantity of scientific disciplines on campus. Stony Brook Southampton, it’s safe to say, is here to stay.

ecently, I’ve read various newspaper accounts of life in the Hamptons, and of the “Hamptonites” who inhabit the Hamptons. There have been numerous articles in Dan’s Papers referring to the locals as Hamptonites. This caused me to ponder what we really should be called out here, because about a year ago, I was in the U.K., and noticed that people in Southampton, England are referred to as Southamptonians. So, I did some checking. According to an article written by Keith Hamilton in The Southern Daily Echo in the U.K. a couple years ago, “Sotonian” was the term used for

Southamptonians years ago because they couldn’t fit the longer word in the newspapers, so they used the shorter Sotonian, and used “Soton” for Southampton. Quote: “The derivation of Soton and Sotonian has a rather more mundane origin as both were coined to describe the city and its residents by journalists at The Daily Echo, who found Southampton and Southamptonian far too long to fit easily into the newspaper’s headlines.” Reminds me of the “All the News That Fits” takeoff of The New York Times byline. I don’t think, though, we’ll be seeing

Hamptonite, Hamptonian or Hamptoner? What’s in a name?

Whichever name it may be, we sport our whites in summer.

any references to summering in Soton in the near future. My friend Edward Callaghan mentioned there was a local magazine a few years back called The Hamptonian, which was distributed on the Hampton Jitney. In addition, I recall another local publication, The Improper Hamptonian, which was launched in the spring of 2001, covering Hamptons lifestyles and events. But they eventually dropped “Hamptonian” from its name, and focused on the rest of Long Island, in addition to the Hamptons. So, back then we were Hamptonians, but now we’re Hamptonites. Perhaps the Great Recession had something to do with scaling back our perception of ourselves and what we call ourselves. If you head further east to East Hampton, the locals typically are called East Hamptoners. I did find some references to Southamptoners on the web, though. Also, there are Westhamptoners, but no Westhamptonites. Not sure what people from Quogue, Montauk and Hampton Bays are called. (Hampton Bayers? Hampton Baysites? Montaukers or Montaukians? Quogueites? Quoguers? But that’s a subject for another article.) There is a relatively recent type of resident known as Hamptonistas. It’s a term typically used to describe people out here who are allknowing in the fashion, media and financial worlds (fashionistas, anyone?). However, it seems to have acquired a more negative connotation for hangers-on and Hamptons wannabees who call the Hamptons home but are more transient, particularly in the summer. I’m also not sure where this word came from, since when I hear any word with “nistas” at the end of it, I’m reminded of the Sandinistas, who were members of a Nicaraguan revolutionary group named after Augusto César Sandino, Nicaraguan nationalist leader of the revolutionary movement that took control of Nicaragua in 1979. So, perhaps Hamptonistas are members of a movement? I guess if I had a preference, I would prefer to be called a Hamptonian. It sounds more patrician, more upscale than Hamptonite, which sounds more like a rock from outer space. Hamptoner is not bad, but sounds more like an adverb than a noun. And I definitely don’t want to be known as a Hamptonista. So, let’s go back to our English roots with Southampton as the first English settlement in New York, here in the Hamptons, and forever call ourselves “Hamptonians” from this day forth.

ight along the waterfront in Sag Harbor stands a rather grand mansion— you might have seen it while walking in a westerly direction along Havens Beach. It’s the former summer residence of Frank Colton Havens (1848–1917), who was a lawyer and businessman instrumental in the development of the San Francisco Bay Area. He built his Sag Harbor “summer cottage” in 1905, sparing no expense. Hardwood paneling, French plate glass windows, a grand stairwell ascending from the ground floor to the attic—lit by a large stained glass window from Tiffany Studios. It was one of the grandest Sag Harbor mansions of its day, as befitted the status of Frank Colton Havens. Born in Sag Harbor into founding families of Shelter Island and Sag Harbor, Havens came of age when Sag Harbor was in decline, its whaling industry all but washed up. So Havens went to California to seek his fortune. He worked as a shipping magnate and lawyer in San Francisco during its boom years, but made his lasting mark in real estate, buying and selling large tracts of suburban San Francisco when the city was in the midst of its 19th-century expansion. Havens’ partner in real estate was none other than “The Borax King,” Francis Marion Smith, who had practically cornered the market on borax. Together, Smith and Havens established the Key System, a streetcar transit system that connected the East Bay area— including the cities of Oakland, Berkeley and Piedmont—to San Francisco via trolley and ferry. This made land in these suburbs much more desirable, and Havens and Smith made a killing. They also built the landmark Claremont Hotel in Oakland. Not everything Havens touched turned to gold. His Mahogany Eucalyptus and Land Company, premised on the commercial potential of eucalyptus as a building material, flopped spectacularly when eucalyptus proved to make for poor lumber. The people of San Francisco have Havens to thank for the groves of eucalyptus that still stand around the East Bay. Havens lived most of the year in a fourstory mansion he built for himself in Piedmont. Unlike the Sag Harbor “summer cottage,” Havens’ California home reflected the influence of Chinese and Japanese architecture and design—which is not surprising, as at the time San Francisco was the major transit point for Chinese immigration into the U.S. Havens himself traveled extensively in China and brought back many artifacts. After his death, Havens’ Sag Harbor home passed to his widow Lila, and eventually was purchased by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, a Roman Catholic order. In 1943, the order turned the building into a finishing school for Catholic girls—calling the school “Cormaria.” In 1949, the school became a retreat center for women only. Today, Cormaria continues to function as a religious retreat center run by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, now admitting both men and women. Because of an addition that was added in 1960, Cormaria can house up to 72 retreatants. At any given time,

retreat participants may be found strolling Cormaria’s ample grounds and waterfront, seeking spiritual illumination in a beautiful East End setting. Havens was a seeker himself, although his interests lay in Eastern religion and meditation. His California home even featured an opiumsmoking bed! Needless to say, you won’t find one at Cormaria.

he office of the Police Commissioner of the City of New York is a grand space on the 14th floor of the massive 1 Police Plaza building across from New York City Hall in lower Manhattan, and it is filled with the memorabilia of police commissioners past and present. The current commissioner, Bill Bratton, who with his wife, Rikki Klieman, has a vacation home in Hampton Bays, invited me there for this interview, and had a special unit ease my way through the heavy security procedures you would expect on the ground floor of such a building. Commissioner Bratton proudly showed me around his office. His desk, a grand affair, was built for Teddy Roosevelt when he was commissioner about 120 years ago. The Commissioner’s Shield, made of gold and platinum, is by Tiffany. “It’s pretty priceless,” he said. There’s a collection of police helmets from years gone by, which Bratton personally has collected. Currently on display atop a bookcase were ten British police bobbie helmets from different forces. And there is the collection of badges worn by Bill himself over the years during his long police career, including his first patrolman’s badge from the Boston police force. He took it out and showed it to me. It said PATROLMAN on it. “There were no women on the force in 1970 when I started,” he said. There are vestiges of that long-ago time today. For example, the union is still the “patrolmen’s union.” The London bobbie hats were of interest to me. “I’ve always wondered why the English policemen don’t carry guns,” I said. “It’s from when the police force was first formed in the early 19th century,” Bratton told me. “There was opposition to the whole idea of a police force, and the public would only allow it to be formed if the bobbies were not allowed to carry firearms. They could carry truncheons. They had whistles. In any case, there were not many pistols back then, anyway. And even to this day they don’t routinely carry firearms.” “I read these old British detective murder mysteries,” I said. “And the police confront the perpetrator with the evidence, and the perpetrator says, ‘Well, you got me.’ No guns necessary.” “America is the Wild West from the English perspective,” Bratton said. I named my favorite British mystery author, Dorothy L. Sayer, and recommended her. He then suggested I read the novels of Donna Leon, an American ex-pat living in Venice. The hero is the chief inspector of the Venice police force. Bratton is an ongoing student of police force history everywhere. And he always has been. There’s a famous story in his family that one winter day when he was one-and-a-half

Everybody knows you don’t “win” against crime. But Bratton did. and living in Dorchester, Massachusetts with his parents, his mother suddenly lost track of where he was, panicked, but then heard horns honking out in the street—and there he was in his snowsuit, directing traffic. Bratton is not a native New Yorker. Dorchester was a blue-collar section of Boston, and his mother was a housewife and his father a mailman who also worked a second job in a foundry, chroming steel. “When did you decide you wanted to be a policeman?” I asked. “When I was a little boy. It’s all I ever wanted to be.” “Were there others in your family who were policemen?” “Nope. I was the first. I’d watch the TV programs about police work. TV was blackand-white then. My favorites were Dragnet and Naked City.”

Bratton knew, at age 19, that to be a policeman on the Boston police force, you had to be at least 21. What would he do with those three years? He’d finished high school. The Vietnam War was heating up. Maybe he could enlist in the Army and join the Army Police. He could be an MP. But they trained him to work as an MP with police dogs. Nothing he could do about it. They sent him and his dog to Vietnam, and they saw brief combat during the Tet Offensive. Within a year of returning home, he joined the Boston police force in 1970. As you hear him tell it, you realize that everything he did in those years, and actually ever since, whether at school or in the Army or in the police force, was preparation for taking a leadership position. It came naturally to him. And either because of that or because he was imaginative, he developed approaches to the job at hand that would result in his standing out, and with the success to prove it. “Ten years in as a police officer, in 1980, I was promoted to be Superintendent in Chief, second in command in Boston. I was the youngest person ever to achieve this rank, at age 32. I got noticed because I had created an experimental neighborhood policing program for one of our precincts. I thought we could do better if policemen were assigned to the neighborhoods consistently as much as possible. They could keep up with goings on. That was prevention. Then I brought in the new 911 emergency call system, which was new at that time. That was ‘rapid response,’ which was handled by a different group of officers.” He was also a highly decorated officer. He had gotten the department’s top award for valor for facing down a bank robber and rescuing a hostage while a foot patrolman. In 1983, Bratton was named Chief of the Massachusetts Bay Transit Police, and three years after that, he became Superintendent of the Massachusetts Metropolitan District Commission Police Department. Based on his performance there, he was asked in 1990 to be the head of the New York City Transit Authority. “Anyone who lived in New York City in the 1970s and 1980s will remember the high crime rate everywhere in the city. Muggings were frequent,” he says. “People were afraid to go outside. And here I was assigned to run the subway police, where, if anything, crime seemed worse than above ground, though that was not the reality.” But Bratton had noticed that in the subway, unlike on the streets, crime was largely petty. Fare jumpers. Pickpockets. Graffiti vandals. Purse snatchers. He became interested in a theory called “the broken window theory” of police protection. If broken windows remain broken, crooks are (Cont’d on next page)

Bratton (Continued from previous page) “My main goal was to improve relations between the police department and the general public, particularly the minority groups.” encouraged to do more. But if windows are broken and arrests quickly follow, it sends the opposite message. The theory was based on a 1982 Atlantic Monthly article titled “Broken Windows” by James Wilson and George Kelling. But to do that, he needed a well-knit force with high morals and a direction. Bratton put together teams of associates who espoused pride, honesty, courage, courtesy and professional back-up. There was an agenda and there was a goal. And all headed toward it. Bratton basically favors careful, aggressive enforcement, teamwork, courteousness to the citizenry and crime prevention, or as he puts it, policing that is “constitutional, respectful and consistently applied.” “For the subway,” he told me, “I directed our officers to arrest turnstile jumpers,” Bratton said. “This was a matter of a dollar and 50 cents at the time. But there were 250,000 fare jumpers that year. This was a visible crime. We arrested as many as we could. What we found was that 1 out of 7 fare jumpers were wanted on warrants for other crime. We also found that 1 out of 20 carried a knife, a gun or other weapon. The word went around. We had said the subways would be safer. And they were safer. Subway crime dropped 30% the year after I put this into effect.” The following year, however, in 1992, Bratton was offered the job of Boston Police Commissioner, and he took it. Truth was, he had always wanted that job. Indeed, in years past, while second in command he had told a reporter that his goal was to be Commissioner, and when that got to the Boston Commissioner, he was transferred to a lesser position. But his time as Boston Police Commissioner was short-lived. The following year, New York’s new mayor, Rudolph Giuliani called him in Boston and asked if he could do the same thing on the streets of New York as he had done in the subways. He said he could. He said he could make crime drop 40% in three years if he were Commissioner. Keep in mind, crime had begun to go down in New York, but not enough that anybody noticed. And so it was that Bratton returned to New York to attack crime and disorder in the city. Before he took office, he held a press conference at which he said, “We will fight for every house, every street and every neighborhood, and we will WIN.” Everybody knows you don’t “win” against crime. But Bratton did. Bratton brought many new tools to crimefighting in the city. He used charts to locate high-crime areas, and then he started CompStat, a computer system that not only did that automatically but also created a police accountability system down to the precinct level. This meant giving decision-making responsibilities to the precinct captains. There were now police on the streets where they needed to be. He went after visible street crime so he

could show a quality-of-life improvement to the general public immediately. He needed the public unafraid. And he achieved that. These were remarkable things he did. “We went after street narcotics in 8,000 locations,” he told me. “We went after prostitution, we got rid of the squeegee guys and we got the homeless off the streets. Visible crime dropped. You could see it drop.” In his first year in office, crime dropped by figures in double digits in all 75 precincts in the City of New York. By 1996, crime in the city had dropped by nearly 40%. By that time, however, with Bratton’s programs in place, he had left New York City because of disagreements he famously had with Mayor Giuliani. It seemed there was not room in this city for two big leaders. One had to go. And it would not be the Mayor. But Bratton’s work was now known nationwide. After six years working successfully in the private sector, he returned to his first love—policing—in 2002 as Chief of Police of the City of Los Angeles, a city whose police were seemingly at war with the Latin and African-American communities. Bratton is the only police official ever to head the police departments in the two largest cities in the United States. Crime in Los Angeles in those years was so bad, it was almost a war zone. The LAPD relationship with the city’s minority communities was so bad that a federal monitor had been installed to be a watchdog over the department. “How was that for you?” I asked. “It was a good thing for Los Angeles. My main goal was to improve relations between the police department and the general public, particularly the minority groups. If they were with you—and my wife, Rikki, helped me with outreach to these communities—I knew I could create a powerful and effective police force to carry this forward. We could succeed. And we did.” Bratton was the first police chief to be asked to serve a second term in Los Angeles in 30 years. And he was to remain there for seven years, until 2009. Bratton is very proud of the fact that in 2009, as he prepared to leave, the Los Angeles Times wrote that after years and years of outreach by their police chief into the Latino and AfricanAmerican communities in that city, “finally a corner had been turned in race relations.” Many think that Bratton is one of the three or four greatest police chiefs in America in the last hundred years. Bratton is happily married to Klieman, a former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney and currently legal analyst for CBS and CBS This Morning, who is frequently at his side at police and community events. “She has brought a tremendous amount of energy and commitment to this work,” he said. She also is an active board member of the Police Athletic League, working with the city’s youth. Bratton and Klieman married in 1999. Both had been coming to the Hamptons. Indeed, at that time, they owned a house in Quogue. But that house got sold. “When we moved to Los Angeles,” Bratton said, “we had to sell that house to buy one out there.” “What first brought you to the Hamptons?” I asked.

“I was a houseguest of Dr. Richard Winter in 1991. He was an honorary police surgeon, and he had invited me out to his house in Flying Point. I had no real concept of what the Hamptons was all about until I came out that weekend. All the amenities here, it just bowled me over.” Today, the Brattons are here almost every weekend year-round. But they are not stay-athomes. They are out and about and they have a routine. “We first know we have arrived in the Hamptons when we pick up a copy of your paper in Manorville at the Mobil gas station at Exit 70. The second marker is the giant sculpture, Stargazer, where Manorville Road meets the Sunrise. We are here!” They leave the city early on Saturday and have breakfast at Estia’s in Sag Harbor. Sunday morning, breakfast is at the Hampton Maid in Hampton Bays. They enjoy Sip’n Soda and Silver’s for lunch in Southampton, and they often take treks out along the North Fork. “A favorite of ours anytime is the Stone Creek Inn in East Quogue. We also enjoy the live theater performances at the Quogue Meeting House by the Hampton Theatre Company. We shop at the Quogue market, we work out at the sports club in Quogue and grab sandwiches at Sonny’s in East Quogue. These are some of the places that have become part of our routines.” Before I left, we had a conversation about “Stop-and-Frisk” in New York City, which the new mayor, Bill de Blasio, who hired Bratton, has said he will cut back.

Bratton is the only police official ever to head the police departments in the two largest cities in the United States. “This is now a non-issue,” Bratton said. “The decline in stop-and-frisk incidents was dramatically put into place before I became Commissioner and before de Blasio became Mayor. From a high of almost 700,000 stops in 2011, they have continued to decline steadily throughout the city. “And crime continued to go down, and still is going down.” (In 1990, there were 2242 murders in New York City. During the first four months of 2014, there were 89. Murder in New York City in 2003 was less than 20% of what it was when Bratton first put his team in place in 1993.) “Truth is, stop-and-frisk is just one tool. It was an effective tool, but its not needed in such great numbers anymore. The proof is we’ve dramatically reduced it and crime continues downward. We have many more tools, new ones, to prevent crime and make arrests when necessary.” “What are they?” “We have DNA, camera systems, better visibility, better forensics and a better, more confident and effective police force. We also have the respect of our citizenry. They know we protect them.” And it all started with a belief that the police could do something about crime. Bratton’s mantra is “Cops count, police matters.”

he lunchtime buzz inside the new Citarella on Hampton Road in Southampton is surely rising, but the assortment of fresh greens proves enough of a distraction to keep the din in the distance—at least until a smartphone flash goes off, leaving in its fade the face of a smiling woman holding what seems to be a large triangle of brie in each hand. She and the guy holding the phone walk over to the wall of olive oil, then past the fresh seafood, the kinds of displays that might inspire Andreas Gursky to start snapping away, if the famed photographer wouldn’t, like the bustle of other shoppers, find his hands otherwise engaged with, say, a carton of fresh sliced coconut or an imported bottle of lemonade. “This is insane!” says a woman looking over the rainbow of sushi selections at a recent lunchtime, picking up and examining spicy tuna rolls with the squinty-then-wide-eyed wonder of a patron making a discovery at an art opening. She looks at her friend in amazement. “How did you not tell me about this sooner?” That friend didn’t have much of a choice. There were no fireworks or marching bands when the shop’s doors opened barely three weeks ago. It’s hard to imagine such an anticipated arrival coming under the umbrella of a soft launch, but that’s how Citarella owner Joe Gurrera wanted it. “I didn’t publicize—I didn’t want to publicize—because I wanted to open it slowly. I didn’t want to get slammed. It’s a little difficult to do the right thing, and you only get one chance to make a first impression.” Citarella has already made an impression in the Hamptons—its East Hampton and Bridgehampton locations are gourmet-market meccas, a natural extension of Citarella’s New York City roots and the patrons who helped it grow. Gurrera bought the Citarella at Broadway and 75th Street in 1983 (the Citarella business name itself having been established in NYC in 1912) and expanded it over the years in breadth—from seafood to include meats, cheeses, prepared foods and other culinary offerings—and in reach with more locations. His three children—Helen, Nancy, and Anthony— are all involved in the business, and there are now also spots on the Upper East Side and in Greenwich Village, along with the East Side restaurant Fulton. “This is not my first rodeo,” he says with an I-know-that-you-know-that smile. But those who don’t know how to ride the bull, well, they usually don’t get second shots. The goal for Southampton was always “to be able to get all the kinks out before Memorial Day. Being out here so many years, you understand how the business goes, how you get slammed on Memorial Day,” he says. “The main thing is to get the flow going and get the kinks out in order to give the customers the proper service.” The son of a Sicilian immigrant, Gurrera worked in his family’s fish store as a kid, earned a degree in finance from St. John’s University, and eventually broke out on his own. He bought the Fulton Fish Market wholesale company

Citeralla’s owner stays true to his “seafood guy” roots as he expands his gourmet empire. Lockwood & Winant in 1985, then later started Meat Without Feet, a wholesale supplier to restaurants, all while increasing Citarella’s reach and high-end offerings. “Starting in the seafood world—you can’t get much higher-end than that, as far as dollars go—I applied my seafood technique to everything I’ve done.” It’s a simple technique, when boiled down: Demand the best. Get the best. Offer the best. When he was still working in his father’s business, he hopped a flight from New York to fly an order of fish out to Wolfgang Puck in California. The kind of reputation that sort of move engenders takes effort to maintain. You run the risk of being expected to impress and, on occasion, even amaze. Gurerra doesn’t seem fazed by that notion. But this is, after all, the man who a New Yorker story famously revealed once gave Martha Stewart a rare white apricot when she came into his store and wowed the domestic diva. That’s no easy task. Nor is continuing to break into new areas while maintaining the appeal of your core. “We’re always trying to evolve, but we always have the passion for food. I’m not going to start selling paper towels, if that’s what you

want to know,” he says with a laugh. “I’m not doing that.” Instead, his latest move is to bring in a hot table, in all three Hamptons locales, tapping into the comfort-food desire of every social strata. “You can get meatloaf, you can get your fried chicken, you can get spaghetti and meatballs, we even have whole fried fish now, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes….” When he gets going, talking about food, his excitement becomes palpable. “If you want your sushi, your pizza, your salad bar, you want your hot soups and the full menu of panini. We will be adding seafood for the summer. You’ll be getting steamed mussels, fried calamari and all of that.” In only a matter of weeks, the Southampton store already feels like an institution, but it was a long time in the making, Gurrera says. “It’s about six or seven years that I was thinking of coming here, but it was pretty difficult. I couldn’t find the right spot, or I couldn’t get the right approvals,” he says. “There’s been more than a half a dozen different ideas that I had, but they would not have been approved, as far as permits and that goes.” Questions of parking and the septic system arose during the process of his buying and converting the property, along with other issues that got less public play. “I had to jump hurdles,” he continues. “There were a lot of different pieces that had to be in place before construction could start—that was the easy part. The property was in default, and there were tenants to move.” Businesses such as The Perfect Purse and the Ananda Yoga and Wellness Center had been leasing space in the building and had to make other arrangements, yes, but few people have talked about how Gurerra helped out on that front. “I was just being a businessman, just being an entrepreneur,” Gurerra says. “I wasn’t being a hard-ass, and, you know, I did the right thing. I asked [The Perfect Purse] to move, and he did, across the street, and I asked the yoga place to move, and I paid for it. There were other people, and I guess they retired or they took their money and they [left].” Gurrera, for his part, is not going anywhere, getting each “T” crossed and putting a dot atop every “I” for Memorial Day and the season that follows—and the seasons following that. “Summertime is fine, but being in business 52 weeks a year is what counts,” Gurrera says. “We’re not a New Yorker coming here to conquer and leave, as most locals do not like. I’m a resident here, so we’re here to stay.” That “we” includes the team of experts he’s built at Citarella—“meat guy, produce guy, pastry chef” he ticks off like an all-star game manager running down his lineup. Gurerra is quick to add, “I’m the seafood guy,” a title he wears with pride and on his sleeve. Ask the guy who can truly call the world his oyster, the man who could have anything for dinner, right now, and he goes back to his roots. “If I had to choose one thing, it would be seafood, fish,” he says, not a hint of hesitation getting in the way. “It wouldn’t be lobster—I like lobster, don’t get me (Cont’d on page 128)

Michael Paraskevas, Dan’s Prolific Cover Artist By STEPHAniE DE Troy

This week’s cover artist, Michael Paraskevas, is not only the illustrator and originator of comic strip Green Monkeys, but also the artist behind the animated series Maggie and the Ferocious Beast Beast, which he and his mother, Betty, produced and created, along with Marvin the Tap Dancing Horse and The Kids from Room 402, as well as 20 children’s books. Recently, Paraskevas, a Southampton resident, has had two more children’s books published and a third, On

My Way to School comes out on July 1. Also a painter, writer and producer, the artist talks about the path of his everevolving and prolific artistic career. you’ve been doing covers for Dan’s Papers for over 24 years. How did you get the inspiration for this one? I’ve been doing Dan’s covers since 1988, I think. I lost count, but some years there were at least four of them, so I’m thinking there have to be at least 80 of them. Someday someone will catalog them all. I didn’t do a good job at

How did you get your start in art? I always was good at drawing. I loved it. I never put down my pencil when I was a kid—it was just better than anything I could think of. I went to the School of Visual Arts in New York, mostly to learn how to paint. I needed someone to show me technical stuff. I had plenty of ideas rolling around my head. I loved illustrating for magazines but that is something that, over the years, I’ve seen less and less of. Magazines had a big resurgence in the ’80s and the early ’90s. Then the bottom fell out and I switched into doing kids books. My wonderfully talented mother wrote 23 books with me. She died in 2010. I miss her every day. I’ve picked up writing now and am still working as a producer in animated kids television. Life is a long road.

What or who are your greatest art influences? Look up these artists: Marshall Arisman, Gilbert Stone, Jack Potter, Robert Weaver, Hilary Knight, Sam Martine…any artist working at MAD magazine. I like Edward Hopper, too, but I didn’t know him as I did most of the people on this list. I think the other big influence on my creative life was the Broadway producer Harry Rigby. He was a family friend since before I was born. I think Harry instilled in me the idea that working behind the scenes was much better than being an actor. I had a funny childhood. I met Mickey Rooney when I was 17. He was hysterically funny. I met a lot of people like that through Harry, and I never forgot it.

that—I was too busy working on kids’ books, illustrating, painting and producing an animated TV series called Maggie and the Ferocious Beast. This is the first beach painting I’ve attempted on the computer. I draw The Green Monkeys on the computer, but that’s a different kettle of fish. The monkey comic has been running since about 1999. Now, I do run the Monkeys as a daily strip online, but the Sunday comics run in Dan’s Papers and have been for the last 13 or 14 years. That’s a pretty good run. I have more in me—I’m not tired of the Monkeys yet. I mixed up the comic a bit by giving them a dog, Lili. Lili’s a long story in itself, but I’ll save that for another time. Which brings me back to the cover. That little dog on the ball is Lili. She’s a whole other story, but Lili of Lili-Land is owned by Spider and Flytrap and she’s a princess.

What’s your creative process like? I like to read a lot. I’m reading Stanley Kubrick’s script for the unproduced film Napoleon. It’s a pretty good read. It’s too bad he didn’t make it. I love film. I should have been a director, but I think I would have had to give up painting. Everyone in L.A. is crazy. I liked it out there, but it’s nuts. Oh, wait. I got off point. I read a lot. I think that sums it up. It opens new doors. Try it. I love my Kindle. (Cont’d on page 128)

e teased each other’s hair until it hurt. We’re going back to July 4th, 1980-something at The Stephen Talkhouse. The elbow-to-elbow crowd smells of smoked meat, salt and limes. The wooden floors creak beneath my feet and, although I can barely hear it over the neon tones and crimped hair, I can still feel it. It’s early enough in the night that the locals haven’t left—the guy in the stained sweater vest, the owner of that popular restaurant with the lady that’s not his wife, the older woman who only drinks cheap pinot grigio. I wait for a beer behind two sitting men, their sunburned bellies poached under the lip of the bar. I notice their mustache glue and their torn-at-the-thigh jeans. They wear identical T-shirts that scream “Frankie Says Relax.” I think this must look like any glittery frat party in Anywhere, USA to my Ohio friends. But I know otherwise. I know that the East End is rare. After college most of our friends went where the salary was highest, where the neighborhood was hippest. I want them to understand this place so they can understand me; understand why I stayed in the dunes of Amagansett. After driving 400 lackluster miles on I-70 East from Ohio to Amagansett, there’s no time to hold back. When I return to the dance floor they’re singing, “Come on Eileen,” as if I’d abandoned them. “It’s so crowded in the summer,” I say.

“Toora loora toora loo rye aye,” my friend sings. “But at least the people here are more attractive.” * * * I’ve tried recounting my memories to them. How I learned to swim at Little Albert’s Beach, how I learned what happiness is at bonfires off Bluff Road, how I learned to be full on Vicki’s Veggies sweet corn. I’ve told them the unforgettable experience of being five and sitting next to Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley during the fireworks at the public beach next to Devon Yacht Club. “They were super famous then,” I say, “and married. The Hamptons is where celebrities come to relax,” I continue, “like last week when my neighbor saw Alec Baldwin buying chicken cutlets or when my sister ran into Paul Simon ordering mint chocolate chip at the ice cream shop. It’s great.” “Really,” they say. I can tell it’s the sort of look that yawns, the sort of look that says, don’t try so hard. But of course it always makes you try harder. “That’s cool, Vic. We should totally wait at that ice cream shop.” I tried telling them how the East End creates light different from any other place in the world. “You know,” I say to them, “the light is softer because we’re surrounded on all sides by water.” “But aren’t most islands like that, I mean, isn’t Manhattan like that?” “Well,” I say. “Maybe you’re right. It could be the placebo effect I’m experiencing. Ooo I know the cemetery where Jackson Pollock is buried— what do you guys think about seeing that?” “Jackson who?” * * * Back on the dance floor we hear stretches of voices. I show them around the watering hole— the stage bar with paintings of the namesake

Native American, Talkhouse. The side bar with its photography wall of naked people and the outside bar with the woman who sells hot dogs and relish. No one orders a hot dog. Guys in Fresh Prince pants: “Why’d they stop playing music?” “I thought it was the same DJ all night.” “Yeah, but this is definitely the radio. That’s Beyoncé playing, not Bowie.” “I can tell you that’s not what I paid 20 bucks for.” Ladies in zebra leggings: “Who is the old dude?” “My beer is warm.” “Wait, what’s his friend’s name?” “I wanna dance, you guys!” “Seriously, who’s the old dude?” When I hear the maracas shaking I give the old dude on stage a better look. The red floral parrot shirt gives him away. The 80s baby-faced crowd turns to see him. His name passes around the room like a sparkler. “Hello, Amagansett,” exclaims Jimmy Buffett. “I was passing through these parts and thought I would buy you pretty folks a drink,” he points to the bartenders, “Red Stripes for everyone.” He’s already sipping on one himself. Cold beers are being passed through the crowd. Before Buffet starts “Cheeseburger in Paradise” he says, “You know, we’re all on this big ball together so keep that music going on in your heart.” My friends turn to me, jumping, “is this really happening?!? Jimmy Buffet is playing like two feet away from us! Vic, can you believe it?” I stand in stupor and sip from my Red Stripe and nod yes, “I can.”

Hamptonite Casts History for HBo, Locals for “royal Pains” Happy Memorial Day, Hamptonites! There is a ton to do on the East End during the summer, and we’re thinking it would be the perfect place for the stressed to come and relax…like legendary Hamptonite Alec Baldwin, who was arrested on May 13 after riding his bike in the wrong direction in Manhattan. Word has it that he got angry and wouldn’t cooperate with the cops. Hopefully the dispute will be settled soon. Summer movie season is upon us, and that means lots of high-profile films starring major celebs. With such a large selection of films, there will be several opportunities to catch your favorite East End regulars on the big screen. A new take on Godzilla premiered on May 16, with Montauk regular Elizabeth Olsen as the female lead. TV fans will also appreciate seeing Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston as her father-inlaw. On May 23, Hamptons fan Hugh Jackman returns to the big screen as Wolverine, the role that made him a star, in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The long-awaited sequel connects the first three X-Men movies (released early 2000s) with the more recent entries with a time-travel story that follows Wolverine’s desperate attempt to stop a cataclysmic disaster. On August 8,



Scarlett Johansson takes everything she’s learned as Marvel’s Black Widow and channels it into Lucy, an action thriller about a young woman who is kidnapped and forced to carry a drug shipment in her stomach. The package explodes, but in true Hollywood form, Lucy ends up with super powers and decides to get revenge on those that Matt Bomer wronged her. The big screen may be brimming with action, but don’t count out the small screen. On Sunday, May 25, HBO will premiere The Normal Heart, a film adaptation of the iconic Larry Kramer stage play. The film, which explores the terrifying early days of the AIDS crisis, features a cast of TV regulars like The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons, White Collar’s Matt Bomer and Looking’s Jonathan Groff, as well as film stars Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Joel Grey and more. Directed by Ryan Murphy—who has created such shows as Glee and Nip/Tuck—the film takes an unflinching look at the negligence, fear and ambivalence that surrounded early AIDS cases and how a group of gay men (with the help of Roberts’ character, a doctor who has seen many AIDS patients) fight to gain visibility and resources to find a cure. Some of The Normal Heart’s early scenes take place on Fire Island, one of Long Island’s largest gay summer destinations. Scenes of wild, carefree revelers are quickly overshadowed by the sudden and seemingly random death of a young man (played by Groff). Casting director

and East End local Grant Wilfley cast the extras for the big Fire Island party scenes. “Having lived through that era, it’s very personal,” Wilfley says. “Getting it right...everything we had to, the people, the look, it had to be right.” Many of the actors cast in the film had to look like convincing AIDS patients of the era, before medication could stabilize the virus. “We did an open call and looked for a lot of very thin actors. Many of the actors were from Manhattan, and we did several postings and notices on Fire Island.” Wilfley felt a true dedication amongst everyone involved with the project. “It was very serious. Most of the people realized how serious it was and how relevant to the period it was. And it’s still going on. AIDS...there’s still no cure. I think the documenting of the AIDS crisis was always on the mind of [the cast and crew], especially for those of us who lived [through that time period].” Wilfley also casts extras for the Hamptonsset Royal Pains on USA, scheduled to debut the new season on Tuesday, June 10. “We just started filming. We’re hoping to use a lot of Hamptons locals.” In addition to the Hamptons locations, the show also films in Huntington’s Oheka Castle. When prodded for spoilers, Wilfley laughs, “They don’t really tell us what’s coming up until that episode.” Have a safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend, folks!

A Posthumous Masterpiece from Peter Matthiessen By JoAn BAUM

Peter Matthiessen, the co-founder of The Paris Review, Review Zen teacher, National Book Award winner for both fiction and nonfiction—and our Sagaponack neighbor for many years—died on April 5, having just finished the book he said might be his last. It was, but the 86-year-old writer put his mind, heart and soul into this one, a novel called In Paradise (Riverhead Books). It’s stunning. And timely: April 28 is Holocaust Remembrance Day. In the 1990s Matthiessen made three trips to Oswiecim, in Poland. The name Oswiecim is back on the maps now. Before that, the Nazis made over the army stables and pastureland of this once heavily populated Jewish village and turned it into Auschwitz-Birkenau. In Paradise—the name drips with sarcastic irony—is a stunner, also, because of the quality of the prose. The title comes from the Gospel of Luke 23:43, when the penitent thief on the cross says to Jesus, “remember me when You come in Your kingdom” and Jesus says, “Truly I say to you, Today shall you be with me in paradise.” This enigmatic reply appears in the novel, and is disputed. Is this a sufficient answer not only for the so-called penitents, but especially for those who suffered like the little children? (the re-created scenes of the death-camp platforms are particularly jolting). Matthiessen’s tale explores these questions, and more—including the putative origin of this evil, the extent to which the Nazi juggernaut against the Jews—and Gypsies and homosexuals—was aided and abetted by the Church, and the legacy of this unspeakable horror. As the central character asks of a young Polish couple who gives him a lift to the region, did they know that “nearly 2,000 Jews were murdered in this country after the war?” No, they did not.* With its pulsing sentences and parenthetical qualifications, its shockingly effective imagery and its mix of third-person present-tense narration and interior monologue, Matthiessen’s Holocaust story unfolds in a way that’s original and moving. It’s no small achievement to revisit this profound and tragic history that has already seen numerous memoirs, biographies, scholarly tomes and articles and film. Matthiessen once said he always wanted “to comment on this global catastrophe,” but that as “a non-Jewish American journalist” he felt “unqualified,” felt he had “no right.” But approaching the subject “as a novelist, an artist,” he decided he could do it. As an artist remarks to the protagonist, “The only way to understand such evil is to reimagine it. And the only way to reimagine it is through art… You cannot portray it realistically.” And yet, like Primo Levi and others, many intellectuals and artists—survivors—eventually became suicides. In Paradise is not a consoling book. It does not attempt to answer or resolve the deeply disturbing questions the Holocaust presents. But it is searingly honest and

beautifully nuanced. Fiction allows Matthiessen to look at the Shoah from a variety of diverse perspectives—perpetrators and victims, all kinds, all degrees, while centering on the complex motives of his protagonist, Clements Olin, an American academic. Olin was born in Poland but his father got him and his grandparents, members of the Christian aristocracy, out in time. That was about 50 years ago. Why would Olin, a respected scholar of WBN-1528 Dans 5.23_Layout 1 5/19/14 9:38 AM Slavic studies, go to Auschwitz in

1996? What does it mean to “bear witness,” as the group he joins of 140 men and women, Christians, Jews, a Palestinian, secular and religious, does here? Tensions mount, contradictory emotions torment the witnesses—exploding hatred and a sudden, inexplicable joy overcome them over the weekend retreat. How can anyone make sense of such a hell, let alone feel love for another human being, for humanity? Matthiessen’s final work is daring, provocative and heartbreaking.

Boston Marathon Meb to Take Shelter Island Mebrahtom “Meb” Keflezighi, who in April famously became the first American male to win the Boston Marathon in 31 years, has yet to decide if his training will let him race the 2014 Shelter Island 10K competitively, or if he’ll simply enjoy the scenery, albeit at a fast gait. As Meb gears up for the race amidst a crosscountry media tour celebrating his historic achievement in Boston, he notes that Shelter




Island has long been on his radar. Many in the New York Athletic Club, which sponsors Meb, run Shelter Island. “I decided to do it this year, because after a marathon is a good time, and I’m excited to have the opportunity,” Meb says. The elite marathoner first made a national name for himself in 2001 when he set the American record in the 10,000m with a time of 27:13.98. Though Boston now sits at the top of Meb’s list of career achievements, his résumé includes other great feats—a silver medal in the 2004 Olympic Marathon and a win at the 2009 New York City Marathon. “I pay attention to details,” Meb, who turned 39 on May 5, says about the longevity and success his career. “I am very cynical about how I run,” he continues, citing that at every moment—whether in travel, leisure or training—he is thinking about how to maximize his time and efforts for training. On pre-race superstitions, “I wish I could say I wear the same socks [for every race], but I have to grow out of them.” Meb will be on Shelter Island Meb Keflezighi for events associated with the June 21 race. He will speak at the High School on June 20 and do a book signing of his appropriately titled autobiography, Run to Overcome, on race day. “I love interacting with people. Hopefully I can share my wisdom with them,” Meb says. Running enthuiasts note that his humble attitude has made him a fan favorite throughout his esteemed career. While training and racing, Meb thought about what he did in 2001 and what he could do to replicate that effort to be successful in Boston. In the end, it came down to leaving nothing behind, as the 2013 bombings motivated him while training. “Run as hard as I can,” says Meb. “I want to be Boston Strong, Meb Strong.” Meb watched the 2013 race at the finish line,

leaving just before the explosions. As he toed the line in 2014, he knew that all eyes were on Boston. And an American win was a shared, sacred hope. “I feel so blessed that I was the one that came across,” say Meb. “[The country] needed an [American] win as a part of the healing process, for closure,” he says. He reflected on the Boston Red Sox 2013 World Series win, realizing how the championship brought a city together in celebration months after it came together through tragedy. Like the Red Sox win, Meb’s win was powerful. Growing up, running wasn’t always Meb’s goal, as he thought he’d play soccer—“My nickname was Pelé,” Meb reveals. As a high school runner in San Diego, Meb learned to always set his sights on the next attainable goal. “Every stage of my career, I’ve been blessed,” he says. His detailoriented nature and calculating training have enabled him to make moves professionally, despite perceived setbacks. Among them, he suffered a pelvic stress fracture at the 2008 Olympic Marathon trials and didn’t make the team. “[Afterward,] I was crawling around like a baby,” says Meb. And, three years later, Meb and longtime sponsor Nike parted ways. But, he overcame. After recovering from his injury, Meb became the first American since 1982 to win the New York City Marathon. And he found a partner in Sketchers after going without a show sponsor for eight months. Meb exudes warmth and competitiveness, a rare combination in athletics. He’s excited to meet fans this June—and hopes that his wife and three kids will be able to join him—but he also, naturally, hopes to race the 10K. “If training goes well, it would be nice to compete.” Hawi Keflezighi

When you drive around Shelter Island, you see cars parked here and there facing the water. Naturally, you assume the parked occupant is just relaxing and counting the waves as they roll in. Usually that assumption is correct. But on the Island, there is another reason to watch the water. Guarding secret clam beds is not as easy as you might think. I know the precise locations of two such beds. Only my family members have taken clams from these sites, as far as I know. On mornings when I have guard duty, I grab a book—yes, a real book with pages that turn and everything—a large coffee and breakfast-to-go and then I park at my station. I often stay for a few hours so I set up whatever I need on the dashboard—cell phone, pen and pad (strangely, I always have to write something down at some point) and a puzzle book with crosswords and cryptograms. I’m not just sitting there. I’m paying attention to those driving by. Off-Island people just drive by—but not clammers. Clammers slow down a little to see who you are and why you’re parked there. Are you just having a coffee or are you guarding a secret bed? They might make a mental note of where you’re parked and come back later in the day, when the water is warmer. That’s where the book comes in. When I see a car, I hold the book up high enough that they will think I’m just reading by the water. Sometimes, someone who knows you might pull up to chat. No matter how good a friend they are, never reveal that you are guarding clams. In the face of a full clam bed, all friendships are suspended. Keep your eyes forward, answer questions, skillfully redirect if needed, just don’t reveal the truth—if you do, your Fourth of July clambake will be at risk. I also keep an eye on what small boats are moored or tied off in the area. I try to see inside— any baskets? Any clam rakes hidden under the crab nets? There’s no slicker steal then to slide in from the seaside, jump overboard and start working that clam bed before the ones who came by land have a chance to unload the truck and get the baskets out there. Clam guarding can get a little lonely, so you can use a cell phone to phone a friend to help pass the time. “Yeah, I’m just sitting down by the water having a coffee, thought of you, thought I’d call—so you’ve got all the invitations out for your sister’s wedding? That’s really I’m not at Crescent Beach. So how’s your sister holding up? She must be so nervous with his family coming from France...No, I’m on the other side of the Island. Has she picked the theme colors for her wedding...No, I don’t know her

menu...Oh, a clam bar with clams on the half? Of course, a clam bar at an Island wedding is traditional... oh, no, of course not. I’ve long forgotten any bed locations. You know how unreliable my memory is these days...No, really, not a clue. No, I was just about to leave and go have lunch. Do you want to have lunch together? No, I’d rather not go to the police station and take a lie detector test.” See, it can happen just that fast. An innocent call can threaten a clam bed. Either hold the dam or lose the clam.

What do you like best about living in Southampton? Do you live here year-round? I live in Southampton and have since 1979. I do like it here. It’s different than it was. I don’t want to turn into one of those people that says ‘it was better years ago,’ but for me it was. However, I would never live someplace else. I lived in L.A. for about nine months. I think I got that out of my system but the weather is better in the winter.

now with two children’s books published in 2012 and 2013, what new projects are you working on? My newest book comes out July 1. On My Way to School is the third in a series. I think there’s another coming but I don’t have a publication date yet. I’m also working on the Taffy Saltwater TV series based on the book that came out last year. Call me in a few months and I’ll have more news. I have a ton of projects I’m working on… one is…oh, that’s a secret. I can’t tell you about it. HA. The Green Monkeys is always being kicked around in Hollywood and is currently moving through the movie treatment stage. They seem to always mess it up. I’ll just have to write the script myself. I love to work. I’ll rest when I’m gone. I’ll never stop drawing. I’ll never give up on the Green Monkeys. I also think Taffy Saltwater would make a great theme park. I’m working on that.

wrong—but a whole grilled fish, any kind.” The love is apparent. And it’s one he hopes his customers will share, or at least try. “I am sure there are a lot of seafood items that people have not tasted or tried, and I would recommend that people try anything local from here—whether it’s skate, which I love, striped bass, porgies, whiting, squid. We get a lot of the seafood from the fishermen right out of Montauk, out of Hampton Bays, out of Shinnecock. Eat the local seafood here.” Local is an important concept to Gurrera, who embraces Hamptons living with gusto even away from the table. “I love it. I love it. I really do,” he says. “This year, the seasons have not been working, but I love it here. The beach, golf....” He smirks. “We’ll see how long it takes me to get to that this year.” Throughout the year, Gurrera can be seen at numerous Hamptons events with his wife, Yusi, as they’ve gotten behind many local causes both personally and with Citarella. Over the years they’ve supported East End groups from Guild Hall to the Parrish Art Museum, East End Hospice to Southampton Hospital. With Citarella, the impact runs deeper than many realize. “We support the local community, the fishermen, the farmers,” he says. “Now, with [the Southampton store opening], we are one of the largest employers on the East End. Year round. And we are here to stay.”

This Column Will Self Destruct in 27 Seconds Technology moves fast. Really fast. Five years ago, 140 characters seemed like an impossibly short way to communicate. Now it seems verbose. It runs deeper than that. The digital age has accelerated everything. New sites and apps and devices are launched overnight. Consumers adopt new behaviors in the blink of an eye. Trends catch on and go stale before many people even know they exist. But in the race to find the next big thing, it’s getting harder and harder to distinguish a fad from a phenomenon. Take Foursquare for example. Do you realize that Foursquare launched just five years ago? Within a few months it had millions of registered users. There were stories of fistfights (virtual and real) to become the Mayor of Starbucks or 7-11 or Sal’s Pizza. It added a new layer of gameplay and active participation to social media. Now ask yourself: When was the last time you checked in on Foursquare? See what I mean? Groupon is another prime suspect. Like many, the company blew up overnight, going from unknown to ubiquitous. Copycats popped up in waves, like a mob of fresh zombies on The Walking Dead. Economists began to herald a new age of social shopping. Now ask yourself: When was the last time you opened a Groupon daily email? Don’t get me wrong. It’s not my intention to slam these companies. Far from it. I’ve had two startups that never went anywhere, so I know how difficult it is to actually execute on an idea. It’s just fascinating to see how the accelerator effect can saddle social media companies with the burden of high expectations. Cuts both ways, right? So which of today’s hot startups are at risk of falling into the same trap? One that comes to mind is Snapchat—and the notion of disposable digital content. Snapchat is a fast-growing messaging service with a twist: the photos, images and other shared content evaporate after a short time period. Kids love Snapchat because you can send and view dirty selfies that your parents will never see. Parents hate it for the exact same reason. Snapchat made headlines when it reportedly turned down a $3 billion offer from Google. Or was it Facebook? Who knows? The point is, the company has millions of rabid users, zero revenue to speak of… and it turned down $3 billion! Will disposable content ever become established as a new type of consumer behavior? No one really knows, and anyone who says they know is lying. As the father of three young kids, I can tell you that many parents are desperately hoping that Snapchat is just a fad. Here’s another emerging social behavior to keep an eye on: anonymous posting. Secret is a startup that’s only a few weeks old. It has already raised more than $8 million in



funding from a who’s who list of Silicon Valley investors. Its claim to fame: all of the reviews, comments and users are anonymous. There’s no way to track down who said what, or determine their intentions, motivations, or biases. It’s the anti-social social network. Secret’s founders think this is a good thing. They contend that people are actually more likely to be honest in social messaging with their identities protected. It’s the same logic that journalists use—“anonymous sources” always seem to go deeper than folks on the record. Again, I have no dog in this fight. I can’t tell you whether anonymous posting or evaporating

selfies will become fads or phenomena. And I certainly won’t predict whether Secret or Snapchat will turn into the next Tumblr and Facebook. Remember, I’m the guy who once devoted an entire column to ridiculing Netflix. (Thanks for not firing me, Dan’s.) My point: If you look at the technology and social media companies that truly matter, nearly all of them solve a fundamental problem or fill a void that previously existed in our daily lives. If you can’t find either of those in a popular new site or app, chances are it will fade away. Or, as my father used to say: Before jumping on any bandwagon, make sure the instruments are plugged in.

Never Name Drop When Your Mouth Is Full! My dear friend Gael Greene emailed me last week to ask what East End restaurants I could recommend for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. She was planning for one of her periodic foodie tours out here in “Far Manhattan.” Our staff was in “double-heavy production” with our annual Summer Preview and the weekly magazine about to deadline, but it was GAEL GREENE—she invented food writing as we know it! So instead of taking my usual 15-minute lunch, I stole a few moments to reflect on some great meals I’ve had since moving here 15 years ago, and I put together a “hit list.” I realized that a lot of great eateries have come and gone over the years. As good as their food may be, many restaurants can’t survive the extreme seasonality of the East End economy. In the past Gael and I have dined together on the South Fork at Bay Burger, Espresso (now closed), osteria Salina, the Plaza Café and, of course, at Dan’s Taste of Two Forks. We tried to get our schedules to gel to go to Comtesse Thérèse Bistro in Aquebogue together, but now that’s becoming the Petulant Wino. I know that she wrote up Fresh and the Topping rose House last season and, in the past, I turned her onto the Jedediah Hawkins inn

under Chef Keith Luce (it’s now under a new chef) and the north Fork Table & inn (which I assured her IS all that it’s cracked up to be), so I skipped all of the aforementioned restaurants. I thought about new places for her to try, then I thought about the best places for her to try. I Save room for dessert! don’t take much interest in trendy. I’ve cut back on reviewing restaurants as I spend more time in my garden—but I make a point of going out at least once a week. I find that this is enough to take the temperature of local dining culture. My old standbys are exactly that: Le Chef, Sant Ambroeus and the Tuscan House in Southampton and the Dockside in Sag Harbor. I was upfront and told Gael that I don’t generally eat breakfast or brunch out—but I do know from experience that Pierre’s in Bridgehampton rocks these morning meals. That croque monsieur! C’est magnifique! I admitted to curiosity about brunch at First and South in Greenport and Muse in the Harbor in Sag Harbor. They are both fun places that appear to really do up brunch. Lunch for me during the week is usually a big salad of my own making from Schmidt’s Market nearby in Southampton. I suppose I’ll begin to migrate to the new Southampton Citarella

for lunch sometimes, especially if I’m looking for gourmet ingredients for that evening’s meal. A quick—and inexpensive— lunch can be had from La Hacienda in Southampton. I’ve heard good things about red Hook Lobster Pound in Montauk but haven’t yet had the pleasure. I LOVE to hit the Lunch Truck behind North Fork Table & Inn in Southold for a picnic. Best. Squash. Soup. Ever. But probably my favorite local lunch is to split a Gorgonzola salad and an eggplant parm sub with my husband at Conca D’oro in Sag Harbor. Simple and filling. (Ask for a little extra sauce.) For dinner I suggested Gael try the Bell & Anchor or the Coast Grill in Noyac, the Cuddy in Sag Harbor, race Lane in East Hampton or robert’s in Water Mill. I had a two-part epiphany while dining during an open mic night at Robert’s last month: 1. I would have to drink A LOT of wine before I ever got up to sing. 2. I would scale the Montauk Lighthouse naked if there was a piece of Robert’s coconut cake waiting at the top. All this talk of food has me salivating. I hope Gael will ask me along to sample with her!

Anthony “Tony” Drexel Duke, 1918–2014 By oLiVEr PETErSon


s Memorial Day approaches, we would like to recognize local veteran and major philanthropist Anthony “Tony” Drexel Duke, who passed away last month. Anthony “Tony” Drexel Duke Sr. died on Wednesday, April 30 at age 95, following a long battle with cancer. The beloved East Hampton resident was founder of Boys & Girls Harbor, a nonprofit summer camp for inner city youth and, later, an education and arts organization. A great philanthropist, Duke spent his life educating children and working to improve the lives of underprivileged youth, but he was also a distinguished veteran of World War II, and his military accomplishments—which earned him three battle stars and a bronze star—included serving as division commander in the Battle of Normandy and representing the International Rescue Committee during the Vietnam War and the 1983 Mariel Refugee Crisis in Cuba. In addition, Duke had a brilliant professional career, which helped further his humanitarian goals. The Princeton grad worked for family businesses, such as Duke International Import/ Export Company and A.D. Duke Realty, as well as the American National Bank. Duke sat on numerous boards, including Duke University, the National Committee of American Foreign Policy and the New York University Child Study Center, among others. He was also a founding director of the East Hampton Health Care Foundation board. Along with his military honors, Duke was bestowed awards for his roles in business and education. He was awarded the first James W. Rouse Civic Medal of Honor by the Enterprise Foundation, the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, the Change for Kids First Lifetime Achievement Award, the Save the Children National Award and a Metropolitan Hospital Award, to name a few. Duke was also named “living landmark” by the New York Landmark Conservancy and he earned a number of presidential citations for his work with Boys & Girls Harbor in Harlem. President Bill Clinton lauded Duke for his good works with children and as an officer. “America’s strength as a nation always has depended on individuals who have been willing to work for the common good. From his brave service in World War II to his tireless advocacy on behalf of our youth, Tony Duke has epitomized this fine tradition,” Clinton said. Duke’s greatest passion was Boys & Girls Harbor, which he founded as a camp for innercity boys (originally called Boys Harbor) in 1937. First established on Jessup’s Neck on Peconic Bay, in 1954 Duke moved Boy’s Harbor to a 26-acre site on Three Mile Harbor in East Hampton. That same year, to support his campers year round, he opened the organization’s first office on 94th Street in Manhattan. He added performing arts, tutoring and counseling in 1960, and in the late 1970s, added day care and social services after moving the office to 104th Street, where it thrives today. Boys & Girls Harbor went on to help establish the Harbor Science and Arts Charter School, one of the state’s first charter schools, in 2001.

Boys & Girls Harbor’s annual fireworks fundraiser over Three Mile Harbor has become one of the Hamptons premier events of summer. In 2011, the original Boys Harbor camp on Three Mile Harbor was sold to East Hampton Town for $7.3 million, which Duke considered his “founding gift” for the Tony Duke Founder’s Path, the highest level of donation to the Harbor. The following year, in 2012, the Harbor celebrated its 75th anniversary. Since Duke established it in 1937, more than 50,000 youths have attended Boys & Girls Harbor. Along with sharing the details of Duke’s storied life and his great accomplishments, Boys & Girls Harbor shared a posthumous message from their founder.

“In my life, I have been fortunate to have had several families: There is my own family: my mother and father and brother and grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews, and my 11 children who’ve made me so proud, as well as their children and their children’s children,” Duke said. “There is my St. Paul’s [prep school] family, there is my Navy family, and there is the largest of them all—my Harbor family. [More than] 75 years later, I am still close to countless Harbor alumni and regularly encounter many others who have come through over the years. I receive calls and visits all the time, and one of the pleasures of my life is walking on the street and running into someone who spent time at the Harbor as a child.” –Tony Duke

Ralph Lauren and East Hampton Historical Partner to Restore Hedges Barn EAST HAMPTON: Ralph Lauren and the East Hampton Historical Society have partnered to restore the old Hedges Barn on Edwards Lane in East Hampton Village. This proposed historical preservation project would save one of the few remaining 18th-century barns left in the village, and greatly enhance the educational potential of Mulford Farm by giving a home to East Hampton Historical’s learning programs. “The ‘new’ barn will offer much-needed space for traditional craft projects, workshops, and programs that will explore the traditions of early farming on Long Island’s South Fork,” says Richard Barons, director of East Hampton Historical. In tandem with the restoration, Ralph Lauren will offer a dedicated East Hampton Historical collection for men, women, and children beginning Memorial Day. The collection includes iconic apparel and accessories such as waffle tees, hooded sweatshirts, branded E.H.H.S. tees, baseball caps, and canvas beach totes. The product will be available in the East Hampton Polo Ralph Lauren East Hampton store and at A contribution of 50% of the purchase price of the East Hampton Historical collection will benefit the East Hampton Historical Society.

Village Awards Surf Bid to Flying Point SOUTHAMPTON: Surf’s Up in Southampton! Flying Point Surf School will once again be teaching surfing on Southampton Village beaches. Now the official surf school of Southampton Village after an unopposed application, the school will be teaching surfing techniques to children and adults. The school has operated in Southampton Village for several years, but was required to apply for a permit in July 2013 after locals observed the business expanding last year. This year, the village opened up the bid process. Because of the Surf School’s new status, several new rules have been put in place to regulate the business. These include: hours of operations are limited to 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday; classes must have no more than 20 students and no affiliated private lessons. As per Suffolk County camp guidelines, there must be a lifeguard for every 25 students in the water, and all instructors must be CPR-certified.

Village Opens Noise Complaint Hotline EAST HAMPTON: For those who want to make noise about the ongoing cacophony of construction in East Hampton Village, a sounding board is now in place. East Hampton Village has established noisecomplaint@ and the toll-free 844-324-0777 as a means for residents who take issue with noise generated from commercial construction or landscape activity to lodge their complaints. The hotlines are an attempt to mitigate residents’ concerns regarding construction that have come before the East Hampton Village board over the past few months. After several board meetings, the Village decided to place limits on the hours in which construction may be going on and has banned radios from worksites, though they conceded on some issues after construction and landscaping industries voiced their concerns.
