Please be aware of the new law that has been passed involving beach blanket locations here in the Hamptons this summer. Celebrities will use white blankets and will be at the far right of the beach. The Wealthy will use green blankets and will also be on the right, between the celebrities and the lifeguard stand. The Singles will use red blankets and will be at the far left of the beach. And the Locals will use yellow blankets and will be on the left between the Singles and the lifeguard stand. Please look at your beach sticker and note the color you’ve been assigned. It’s the small dot on the lower left. Only bring beach blankets in the color you have been assigned. -- DR 5.

Lori Anderson recently announced that her husband Lou Reed had undergone a liver transplant. Reed is said to be making a remarkable recovery from the operation. Southampton resident Howard Stern chatted with East Hampton’s Katie Couric on Katie’s daytime talk show last week. The pair discussed Howard’s career, his many neuroses and his relationship with Beth Ostrosky, his wife of 13 years. Hamptons regular James Lipton was recently interviewed by Parade magazine. Among other topics, the Inside the Actors Studio host talked about the time he ran a bordello and hustled for money in Paris after World War II. Southampton resident Mayor Bloomberg supported East Hampton’s Nathan Lane and other Broadway actors when he made a surprise appearance at the Tony Awards Nominee Luncheon at the InterContinental Hotel in Times Square last week. Bloomberg said he catches a show every chance he gets. Lane was nominated for a Tony for his role in The Nance. Former Top Chef semi-finalist and Surf Lodge chef Sam Talbot is feeding hungry beachgoers again this summer. Talbot has teamed up with Zach Lynd of Turf, a popular food truck stationed at Ditch Plains in Montauk.

“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 other riders showed those confused how to use it. Anyway, it’s been fixed as the part came in.


Week of June 6 – 12, 2013 Riders this past week: 14.812 Rider miles this past week: 107,840 DOWN IN THE TUBE Gail Sheehy, author of the aptly named book Passages, aptly for Hamptons Subway anyway, was seen on the subway between Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor. Howard Stern and his wife Beth were holding hands on the subway between Water Mill and Southampton last Thursday morning. ESCALATORS FIXED The escalators that went wacko at the Water Mill platform last Wednesday have been fixed. You recall that Wednesday when the mechanics fixed the escalators, late at night when the system was shut down, it turned out they had the down escalator going up and the up escalator going down. They still worked, but you had to think of it as the English system— stay on the left side of the road—and this did confuse many riders for awhile. Fortunately,

SODA JERKS WANTED Hamptons Subway will launch its new ice cream luncheon car for the Fourth of July. Applicants must have experience in making malteds, egg creams, banana splits, ice cream cones and hot fudge sundaes. Those chosen as finalists for the two people to be hired will be given a test in serving customers while the train is moving. We’re looking for reflexes and good balance. BIG DROP AT BEACH STATIONS The subway spurs which go out to the beaches from the main line in East Hampton (pick it up at Main Street) and in Southampton (pick it up at Monument Square) are open for the physically fit. Erosion over the winter exposed the platforms at the back of the sand dunes at Main Beach and Cooper’s Beach respectively, and the only way up to, or down from, them is by ladder. We hope to have this attended to by July 4 to make it easier for the couch potatoes and elderly. Our carpenter returns from his vacation in Montserrat on Monday.

June 7, 2013 Page 29 DELAYS LAST FRIDAY REGRETTED We regret having to shut down the system last Friday at 2 p.m. for a half hour to try to fix something we found wrong. We never did find out what the problem was. So if it should happen again, whatever it was, it might be necessary for us to shut down the system again. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Joe Harrison and Bill Wilkindorf from the filing department celebrate their seventh wedding anniversary in the company headquarters cafeteria next Tuesday at 3 p.m. All friends of theirs are welcome. They’ve been married three times in the seven years, each time in a different state as the new laws came in and they’ve moved around from one job to another. NEW SUPERCAR FAILS TESTS The new supercar that Hampton Subway took delivery of last week has been undergoing testing in the Montauk Yards. Supposedly a big improvement from our regular cars, stronger engine, faster pickup, more chrome, it has failed tests involving its stability. It tends to fall over on its side when you take it around a turn. We hope to have this worked out with the manufacturer, Shelby Bus and Subway Company, within a few weeks. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE I’m of course disappointed in Supercar, for which I designed the specifications myself. It will be a great thing for me when I see it out on the tracks, burning rubber and squealing off down into the tunnels. I know everybody else is waiting breathlessly for this too.

SHELTER ISLAND A fight broke out at The Wet Clam bar on the corner of Shark Fin Street and Scallop Lane and ended up moving all the way down to the intersection of Blue Crab Avenue and Horse Shoe Crab Lane. The fight took place at 3 a.m. and involved all 17 members of the Shelter Island Flamethrower Society. Old Man McGumbus, 103 years old, current SIFTS President and former World War II Flamethrower Squadron Leader, was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon after he threw a bottle of Wild Turkey at a hipster. The fight between the hipsters and the SIFTS lasted for nearly two hours, mainly because the hipsters would repeatedly threaten to film the incident on their cell phones, and the old men kept beating them with empty booze bottles. McGumbus was tackled and handcuffed by police as he attempted to strap on his flamethrower, which he carries in the back of his car.

Fort Tyler The Historic Fortress in East Hampton Bombed into Ruins By DAN RATTiNeR


hen you travel to most seaside resorts around the world, you often come upon old forts built right on the water in the 17th or 18th century to defend the civilian population from pirates and other marauders. The forts are properly restored, with photographs or paintings of the cannons of the fort in action beating off the ships of those up to no good. They are tourist attractions. As it turns out, the Hamptons had such a fort. It was called Fort Tyler and it was built by the U.S. Army on a small 14-acre island called Gardiner’s Point Island in East Hampton in 1898 at a time when America was embarking on its first international conflict with a major foreign power, Spain. The main action was in Cuba, where the Spanish were driven out, but other actions took place in Manila Harbor in the Philippines and in Guam, but if the Spanish fleet were going to attack New York City, it would have to first get past the four or six batteries manned by the Army on the ramparts of Fort Tyler. As it happened, Fort Tyler never fired a shot in anger at anybody. In 1902, after the Spanish-American War ended, it was “seized” by U.S. Naval forces in a war game between the U.S. Army and the U.S. Navy, which returned it to the U.S. Army. In 1928 it was abandoned

because of rising seas, in 1938 all of Gardiner’s Point Island was declared a Bird Sanctuary by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and what remained of the fort was bombarded into ruins by U.S. Navy submarines firing torpedoes and U.S. Air Force four-engine bombers dropping bombs in training missions during the Second World War. The sailors and airmen learned their lessons well. We won that war. Today, Fort Tyler is called, simply, The Ruins, and it needs to be avoided by mariners at all costs. The remains of the fort are not only a danger to navigation, but it is believed there may still be unexploded ordinance in the rubble after all these years. So there is never going to be a Fort Tyler Historical Society offering tours there. The federal government became involved in what was to become this fort 10 years before the outbreak of the Civil War. At that time, all of Gardiner’s Island was a private island owned by the Gardiner Family as it is today and as it had been since 1639. In 1851, however, a long thin peninsula stuck out the northern end of the island, ending 400 yards into the sea at a place where the government felt would be a good location for a lighthouse. The government bought the tip of that peninsula for $400 from the Gardiners. The government spent four years and $7,000 to construct a (Continued on next page)

peninsula, as with a similar one that sticks out the southern end of Gardiner’s Island, is mostly made of sand, so it seems to have been washed away. On the other hand, sea level is rising. I noticed in an article the other day where Kevin McAllister, our Baykeeper, was quoted, that he said that sea level has already risen one foot. And that is true. But going to a scientific site where global sea level is being monitored, I learned this one-foot rise has taken place over the last hundred years. In 1910, the sea was one foot lower than it is in 2013. Furthermore, the rise, between then and now has been at a steady pace. Every 10 years it rises one inch. And this past 10 years, it is the same inch rise as was 90 years ago. There’ve been numbers bandied about that we will have a rise in sea level of two or three feet soon. But soon means 2113 and 2213, respectively. The real issue today, however, is in the short-term rises and falls. Back in 1910, the rise was slow and steady. Now, it jumps all over the lot. Although it will be one inch every year on average, some years it might rise two inches, but the next year fall back three quarters of an inch. This wild variation is part of the syndrome of temperature, storms, tsunamis, hurricanes and earthquakes that vary so much as to cause havoc. I know this information has very little to do with Fort Tyler other than as an explanation for the disappearance of its peninsula. Just consider this article as a twofer. And again, the Fort’s gone. And it ain’t coming back.

Helicopter Heaven Where You Can Land in the Hamptons by Helicopter Few Know About By DAN RATTiNeR


think the towns out here do a very good job of allowing different people with different activities to share access to our beaches. For instance, in East Hampton you can run your dog on the beach before 9 a.m. After that, you’re gone and it belongs to the beachgoers. In Southampton, there’s surfing out by the Cooper’s Beach jetties to the right, but there’s no surfing where the lifeguards sit in the center. There’s also a place for sport fishermen. One interesting multiple-use-of-a-beach takes place out at the western end of Meadow Lane in Southampton. Just before you get to the county park out there, there’s a spot where four-wheeldrive vehicles are allowed to roam, bringing sport fishermen, surfers and picnickers out onto the sand. This spot is called Picnic Beach. And local folk have been out there in the summertime for close to a century. There are also magnificent oceanfront mansions along this stretch that look out at Picnic Beach. The owners of them tried a few years ago to get the town to kick the locals off Picnic Beach, but the effort failed. The locals Dan's Banner Clocks_Layout 1 5/18/12 9:44 AM Page 1

were there long before anybody built a house out there. You can’t just come along Johnnycome-lately and kick people off who were there before you. I also think it failed for another reason. Picnic Beach might be very blue collar. But right across from it, on the bay side of Meadow Lane, is an insanely noisy operation, which the very rich have staunchly defended for more than 20 years. Again, it was there before the homeowners got there. This activity is a helicopter landing pad, a 20-yard-wide by 20-yards-deep piece of asphalt with a big white bulls-eye circle in the center of it. The landing pad is hard by the road so it doesn’t jut out into the wetlands and bay very much. And it’s the only place to land a helicopter in Southampton. Those who use it have numerous times deflected proposals to close it. It sure is a huge racket when choppers come in. The helicopter flight plan was altered a few years ago to bring them in from the north so that there is less disturbance to the homeowners and for safety reasons that they don’t fly in over the beach. But it’s pretty much a no-win for the

homeowners. They’ve got Picnic Beach in front of them and the choppers coming in behind that, and they knew that when the bought the vacant plots. C’est la guerre. Late last Thursday afternoon I was out on Picnic Beach, writing stories on my laptop in front of the wonderful slow surf that day, and after I finished I packed up, drove down the beach and out the sand road to the gravel parking lot by Meadow Lane. There’s activity there as well. There’s an equipment shack, and beside it an air tank with a rubber hose you can use to air up your tires after you come off the beach. When I arrived in this parking lot, somebody in a baseball cap was doing that. Nearby, a guy in jeans and t-shirt was dismantling his rod and reel, getting ready to put it into the trunk. There were also two other cars there, parked. I guessed their owners had walked out to the sand with their gear. Across the road is the helicopter pad. At that moment, I heard a chattering sound in the sky. It was from a rather large helicopter coming in over the bay toward us. In less than a minute, it was hovering over the pad, not 50 yards (Continued on next page)

from all of us there in the parking lot, blasting out noise. Everybody stopped what they were doing to watch. You could see there was a pilot in the cockpit and also a co-pilot. Both had big metal earphones on and were concentrating fiercely on what they were doing. On the side of the fuselage of the helicopter facing us were three windows. There was also a door, and next to it a second door. The only other markings on this chopper were the usual big black letters the FAA requires. I think all of us in that gravel lot were looking at this for three reasons: One because of its noise, two because we wanted to see it land— it’s always interesting to see a pilot set down a 10,000 pound piece of aircraft—and three because we wanted to see who would be getting

She wore a white floppy summer hat and large, white-rimmed sunglasses. She had on a white top and a short white skirt. She also had bling... out. It appeared to me that this was a six-seat aircraft. When the chopper dropped down to within six feet of the pad, the pilot revved up the engines to better steady it. Then, as he touched down, first with the two back wheels and then the nose wheel, he changed the pitch of the propellers, causing them to emit a huge galeforce wind parallel to the ground. It flattened

the eelgrass on all sides of the pad, caused everybody in our lot to grab our hats, and it also blew open the little chain-link door that was how you got past the four-foot tall chainlink fence that separated the pad from the road. Then, after settling right in the center of the pad, the pilot put the chopper blades on idle, opened his pilot’s door, hopped out to the asphalt, and went over to the passenger door. Now we would see who this was. The first thing that appeared in the doorway was a little King Charles Spaniel. It looked around and wagged its tail, then hopped down. It was on a leash. The next thing out was one naked female leg, upon the foot of which was strapped a single red platform shoe. The pilot offered the owner of this leg a hand, but it was not taken. The rest of her got out just fine. And that was it. She was the only person in the helicopter. I looked to see if I knew this woman. She wore a white floppy summer hat and large, whiterimmed sunglasses. She had on a white top and short white skirt. She also had bling, a necklace and numerous rings. She was perhaps 30. I did not recognize her. She seemed to look at us across the way. You couldn’t really tell with the dark glasses. We looked at her. Then she began walking toward the gate, steadily and carefully. She had mastered these shoes. The pilot then turned around and walked back to the chopper and opened the smaller door, taking out three pieces of matched pink luggage. He picked up two suitcases, and put a third, a smaller one, under one arm. And then the cars arrived. The first was a black SUV, coming westbound up Meadow Lane from town, to stop in the middle of the road just short of the gate. Two men in white shirts and black pants got out, left the car doors open and walked over to attend the gate. Behind us, further in our gravel parking lot, another black SUV—it had been there all the time—stirred. It backed out of its parking spot, turned, and moved quickly to the entrance of the lot, where it too stopped, its grille facing the street. Two uniformed men got out of that. As these men converged to the gate, one of them rushed in past it and over to the pilot, struggling behind the woman with the luggage. He’d take it from here. The pilot handed it over. You could not help but be impressed with the efficiency of all this. One SUV effectively blocked Meadow Lane westbound. The other, at the edge of our lot, could move forward to block Meadow Lane in the other direction. The woman on her red platforms, with her little dog trotting alongside, now arrived at the gate, where she was ushered along and then was across the street and into the side door of the SUV on the gravel there. As quickly as all this came, it all went away. The chopper went straight up, the two SUVs went off single-file westbound, and the guys in the lot went back to what they were doing. The man went back to putting air in his tires, disassembling fishing rods, putting away surfboards. Then they too went away. Then a seagull landed on the very center of the white circle of the landing pad and pooped. Then he too was off.

It Takes a Village? Hampton Bays Hamlet, Like Others Before It, Ponders Incorporation I was going to open this story with a sentence that would begin “The powers that be in Hamptons Bays…” but then thought better of it. There are no powers that be in Hampton Bays. And that’s the problem. Therefore the humble unofficial citizenry of Hampton Bays are now considering breaking away from the larger entity in which they currently reside— Southampton Town—to make themselves an official Incorporated Village. If they decide that incorporation is a good idea, they will announce boundaries, get permission from the state, and then have the people vote on a referendum. If a majority votes Yes, the place will henceforth be known as the Incorporated Village of Hampton Bays, and it will be filled with “powers that be.” There will be Mayors, Sergeants at Arms, Judges, Police Chiefs, Village Clerks, Inspectors, Trustees and all sorts of other posts. They might also consider changing their name. In the 1740s, the place was called Good Ground. It’s a good old name. Indeed, on the four corners in the center of town there is a concrete commercial building that, when built, was carved with the name Good Ground up top under the eaves. You come into the

unincorporated village of Hampton Bays and you look up and you see the original name of the place, carved in stone, but that’s not the name anymore. It’s an eerie feeling. They could incorporate as the Village of Good Ground. There are plusses and minuses to incorporation. The plusses are that you have a new layer of government that is very nearby and will respond quicker to what is going on. The minuses are that you have a new layer of government that is very nearby and will respond quicker to what is going on, but will likely cost more. As the founder of this newspaper, I can report to you that during my half-century tenure, there have been several attempts to create Incorporated Villages. All attempts were different one from the other. But two succeeded and are successful villages today. They are the Village of West Hampton Dunes and the Village of Sagaponack, both of which were carved out of the Township of Southampton. It’s interesting to consider the fates of all these attempts separately. Perhaps Good Ground might learn something from such a consideration. Here they are from east to west. There have been several attempts to incorporate Montauk. A serious attempt was

made in 1966 but failed. A further attempt, in 1996 led to a straw poll of the residents and that also failed. Nevertheless the Town of East Hampton, out of which it would have been carved, paid attention to these rumblings and offered all sorts of inducements to Montauk, hoping that the rebellion would subside, which it did. Today, there is a police annex in Montauk, a Town Clerk’s office and a Montauk Citizen’s Advisory Board established to advise the East Hampton Town Board on matters relating to Montauk. None would be here today if not for these rebellions. It’s sort of like what happened in Canada where everything spoken or written in public has to appear twice, once in English and once in French. Quebec wanted to break away and form the French speaking Country of Quebec. But the rest of Canada, the Englishspeaking part, created compromises, among which was the dual language law, so Quebec has voted to stay a province. Sacre Bleu! In 1987, a section in the western part of the Town of Southampton incorporated itself into the Village of Pine Valley. There were about 800 people in this village. It included the Riverhead Jail, the Suffolk County Center, Wildwood Lake and the woods around it and the people living in it, and a small part of Flanders, particularly along Peconic Bay.

Village (Continued from previous page)

G. Holtzman III

The incorporation was spearheaded by founder Leonard Sheldon—and many believed his developer friends—who envisioned a new downtown, waterfront activities and lower taxes. After incorporation, when taxes went up and no new downtown appeared, the villagers became angry. Many villagers wanted to un-incorporate. Those still favoring incorporation tried to head them off. A battle ensued and in the end, those wishing to un-incorporate won. But it was not without angst. Three years later, the scattered remnants of Pine Valley were back in the capable hands of Southampton Town. Jim Dreeben, the owner of Peconic Paddler in Riverhead, was a “resident” of this village during the brief time Pine Valley waved its flag,


and he wrote a letter to Dan’s Papers reporting on things he claimed to have heard at the raucous village meetings. Here are a few choice quotes: “It is NOT a conflict of interest. He is just a friend of mine and I think Pine Valley should pay him $875.” “We appreciate your asking those fine questions, Larry—now sit down. You too, Alan.” “We are being sued by developers.” “Accomplishments? Now let me think. Oh, yes, we have a village hall, a copying machine, matching desk blotter, carpet, curtains and toilet paper.” “The taxpayers who can afford these (outrageous) taxes are, in fact, the ones who want to dissolve the village.” “I am not a politician. In March, when I became Mayor, compared to Pine Valley, Romania will look like Sesame Street.” “I am here in an advisory position only. You pay me $175 per hour to listen and $250 per hour to talk, plus $5 per mile and dinner.” “The Ethics Committee is overworked, what with all these crooked politicians.” Without a doubt the most financially successful incorporation was the western end of Dune Road in the Town of Southampton. There were more than 500 houses on this part of Dune Road before jetties were built along that road to the west. When these jetties, 15 of them, were completed, the sea rose up where other jetties were never completed, and took away over 140 homes, wiped out the land, destroyed the single road, telephone, electric and sewage and ultimately created an enormous inlet with the sea rushing into the bay. For a time, you could buy a half-acre of underwater oceanfront land for $5,000. I received such an offer. But I considered it ridiculous, like throwing your money away, like buying the Brooklyn Bridge. Today, after the Army Corps of Engineers built a mile-long giant steel cofferdam, the inlet was healed, the land restored, almost all the homes rebuilt, and if you want to buy a plot, it will set you back at least a million dollars. Incorporation did that. It’s a longer story than can be told here, but it’s the case. This was an attempt, in 2003, to create a preposterous Incorporated Village. In the end it failed. It was proposed to be along the five miles of oceanfront between Wainscott and Flying Point, but only 100 or 200 yards wide. The idea was to give control of the oceanfront to the residents along the (Continued on page 40)

A Trophy’s Life Stolen? Sold at a Yard Sale? You Never Can Tell in the Hamptons By DAviD LiON RATTiNeR


ne way to get your hands on the Hampton Classic Challenge trophy in years past was to ride your horse—really, really well. Since the venerable equestrian competition stopped handing out that particular silverplated champagne bucket–style trophy back in 1993, however, it became a bit harder. But not impossible, as we saw a few weeks ago. That’s when Hampton Classic Horsemen’s Advisory Committee member Mary O’Connor spotted this Challenge trophy, awarded between 1978 and 1992, on eBay. “VERY UNIQUE GIFT OR ADDITION TO YOUR HAMPTON CLASSIC HOME,” said the listing, complete with photo. O’Connor posted a link on the Hampton Classic’s Facebook page to alert the organization. Up until that point, nobody even knew the trophy was gone. If a Hampton Classic trophy goes missing, you might think alarm bells would automatically sound. You’d be wrong. When the eBay listing appeared, some eyebrows at Hampton Classic headquarters in Bridgehampton were certainly raised, but it wasn’t sirens and lockdown.

“We have a lot of old trophies that do not get awarded anymore, and we have them locked up during the year here in Bridgehampton,” Shanette Cohen, the Executive Director of the Hampton Classic, explains. “Sometimes we will put them out on display, but for the most part, they remain behind closed doors. “When I first saw the listing after it was posted to our Facebook page, I wasn’t completely shocked, because it was a Challenge Trophy, which are trophies where the winner gets to keep them. So it wouldn’t be so farfetched to think that it would be sold on eBay. But when I looked into it further and checked with a few people, we figured out quickly that it in fact was a trophy that was ours, and we verified that it had gone missing.” Nobody is exactly sure how long ago the trophy was stolen from storage at Hampton Classic headquarters on Snake Hollow Road in Bridgehampton, since it has been presumed to have been sitting there for the last 20 years or so. While it’s possible that the trophy was taken some two decades ago, it could just as easily have been lifted two months ago. What is certain, though, is that the auction was attracting bidders, and the Classic folks

wanted it back. “The woman on eBay who had posted the listing said to me that she bought it at a yard sale, and I think she was excited about the listing because the bidding had gone up above $500,” says Cohen. Of course, regardless of where the seller got the trophy, it had been stolen at some point, and thus couldn’t be sold on the auction site. Soon afterward, a police report was filed to get the incident on record. Nobody at eBay worked with the Hampton Classic to get the trophy back, but on May 17, the seller ended the auction. “When she did figure out that the item had been stolen, she quickly dropped it off at our office,” Cohen said. “The woman was worried that people would think that she stole it, which I think is really understandable. I want to be clear that none of us here think that she stole it. We are all confident that she did buy it at a yard sale, and I also want to point out that when she returned it, she didn’t accept any money.” And so, the trophy is back home, safe and sound, inside Hampton Classic headquarters. But a good old-fashioned case of “who dunnit” remains. The unknown thief is still on the loose.

Village (Continued from page 38) ocean. Erosion control projects could then go ahead. Perhaps a village could prevent outsiders from accessing the beach. As it strung itself across the ocean frontage of Sagaponack, Bridgehampton, Mecox and Water Mill, you could see that at certain points, there was no contiguous road connecting one part of the new proposed village with another. Since a great majority of the people along the ocean were in favor of creating this new village, there was only one way to stop it from happening. One of the unincorporated communities it would pass along would have to incorporate. It would be a dagger through the heart of this pencil thin proposed entity. BRiDGeHAMPTON The unincorporated met to consider incorporation. I think they met twice about it. They decided they liked being part of the Town of Southampton. Being a new village would be an added expense. SAGAPONACK On the other hand, the citizens of Sagaponack, which is among the most wellto-do communities in America, decided to put an end to Dunehampton, and did. Their incorporation took place in 2005 and all indications are during its short eight years that it is a considerable success. It is well-run, many of its required services, such as police or fire, are accomplished by arrangement of neighboring towns and hamlets. And this closeat-hand government is a trusted guardian of the community’s treasures—the farms, the tworoom Sagaponack School, the Sagg General

Those in Shinnecock thought that maybe Shinnecock Hills, as it was called, should be something that had the word “Hampton” in it. Store, and the Village Post Office, which shares a building with the general store. SHiNNeCOCK HiLLS Here’s a story from before my time, about another incorporation attempt. It’s been handed down from one generation to another, and I cannot vouch for its truthfulness. But it sure is wonderful. In the late 1800s, about 100 wealthy New Yorkers built mansions in the rolling hills of Shinnecock east of the canal. During this time, the villages of Southampton, Bridgehampton and East Hampton began to flourish with the influx of New York summer people arriving by railroad. Those in Shinnecock thought that maybe Shinnecock Hills, as it was called, should be called something that had the word “Hampton” in it. They met and agreed to try to change the name to Hampton Hills. What they subsequently found, however, was that to change the name of a community they would need the majority of its year around citizens to vote the change. There was another meeting. Most people were baffled about this. “There is nobody here year-round,” one of them said. “We all just come out for the

summer.” “What about old man Terwilliger?” another said. Herbert Terwilliger was the stationmaster for the Shinnecock Hills railroad station. He lived upstairs. He was who came downstairs to sell you tickets to the city from behind his little glass window. But he was also the Postmaster. Behind his glass window were all the post office boxes for the summer people. It was Terwilliger who put the letters in the boxes in the summertime. And it was Terwilliger who, all winter long, forwarded the mail to them in the city. He forwarded the mail! He was here! “You’re right!” said another man. “Terwilliger is our year-’rounder. Let’s go see him.” So they did. About a dozen of the summer residents crowded into the waiting room that day and talked to Old Man Terwilliger about their proposition. They explained what they wanted to do. And they explained what needed to be done. Would he cast the necessary vote so that by one to nothing, they could report that a majority were in favor of changing the name of Shinnecock Hills to Hampton Hills? Terwilliger thought about it for a moment. Then he spoke. “Nope,” he said. And that was that.

Mr. Sneiv explores Bikini evolution By MR. SNeiv


In the case of going topless, it’s not a true bikini. It’s actually a “monokini.” I’m not in favor of this for the Hamptons... The groundwork for the modern bikini was laid in 1907, when an Australian swimmer and performer named Annette Kellerman was arrested at a Boston beach for wearing a formfitting one-piece bathing suit. By 1913, inspired by the introduction of women into Olympic swimming competition, Carl Jantzen made the first functional two-piece swimwear. By 1934 swimsuits starting hugging the body, and they began getting smaller, to enable better tanning. Hollywood and the media helped fuel the evolution of the bikini. Remember the late 1970s and our very own East End’s Christie Brinkley on the cover of Sports Illustrated? On many European beaches, it’s acceptable for women to do away with the top part of the bikini and wear just the bottom part. We see this every year in the Hamptons, when someone from Europe visits and is not aware of the protocol on the East End. This is one of the few benefits of being involved in Hamptons law enforcement during the summer. In the case of going topless, it’s not a true bikini. It’s actually referred to as wearing a “monokini.” I’m not in favor of this for the Hamptons, because I grew up in a conservative household. Besides, it’s better if you leave something to the imagination. Beachgoers are all (Continued on page 44)

ometimes, as a journalist, a topic comes across your desk that takes you outside your comfort zone. That was the case recently, when it was suggested that I write about the art of choosing a bikini for summertime in the Hamptons. My apprehension was soon assuaged, when a friend reminded me that many women’s clothing and shoe designers are actually men. So why couldn’t Mr. Sneiv offer some insight into the art of selecting the perfect bikini? The bikini is perhaps the most popular form of swimwear around the world. It represents not just the power of fashion, but the power of women. Some believe it has represented the emancipation of women. The name “bikini” is credited to Louis Reared, who in 1946 named it after Bikini Atoll, where testing of the atomic bomb took place. But that was just a name. Bikinis actually show up all the way back in the Greco Roman era, as depicted in mosaics. In order to report accurately on the subject matter, I decided that I would have to experience first-hand what it’s like to actually wear a bikini. I started my research by going through the dresser drawers of my longtime companion, while she was out shopping at Citarella. Karen had numerous bikinis to choose from. I selected a black number. To my dismay, it didn’t fit. I was going to have to lose 75 pounds or continue my research without the benefit of actually knowing what it feels like to wear a bikini. So that was that.

The inside Scoop at inner Sleeve By DAN KOONTZ

Vinyl is definitely back!” That’s Craig Wright’s verdict, as his store in Amagansett, Inner Sleeve Records, passes the one-year mark. Wright gets customers of all different ages—some looking to get special pressings of new releases, some looking to get ’70s classics in their original format and others just eager to delve into the deep record stacks in the well-stocked store. “People come in and browse for hours, which is great. They might hear something that grabs them”—Wright is constantly spinning semi-obscure records over the store’s sound system—“and walk out with a record by a band they’ve never heard of before.” Before digital downloading impaired their business model, record stores were a familiar presence all over. Now, in cities like New York, where high rents have driven out even landmarks like the used record store Bleecker Bob’s, it’s becoming hard to figure out what to do if you’ve got extra time on your hands. Not so in Amagansett, where Inner Sleeve is currently tucked into the Amagansett Square shops. Come July, they will be moving across the street to 199 Main Street. People can stop in after picking out some shoes at the Bass outlet or before heading to the Hampton Chutney Company for a quick bite. Of course, along with such casual browsers, Inner Sleeve attracts serious collectors from all over, usually interested in rare finds, many of which Wright

has displayed on the wall of the shop. There have been some surprises for Wright in his first year. “I didn’t expect there to be quite so much interest in records from the ’70s,” he explains. He finds, for example, that today’s vinyl buyers are interested in copies of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, a record that sold so phenomenally that for many years people were practically giving it away at yard sales. Likewise Joni Mitchell’s Blue, a record that Wright has learned to keep in stock. “Blue is a record that seems to be going up in price almost on a weekly basis,” he notes. Wright himself is able to replenish his supplies of good-condition used vinyl from his own collections and from other collectors. What hasn’t been surprising is the enduring popularity of The Beatles, whose records have been the best-selling items at Inner Sleeve over the last year. The store carries a large selection of Beatles pressings, ranging from newly minted vinyl releases of digital remasters to soughtafter rarities, which recently included a goodcondition copy of the original mono release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band—a musthave for any serious Beatles aficionado, and priced as a collectible. Those eager to begin their vinyl collections but lacking a way to play records need look no further than Inner Sleeve’s selection of turntables: you don’t need to shell out for a huge system to begin enjoying your purchases. The Crossley turntables are compact, designed to hook up to most modern audio systems,

and come with a warranty. Wright had also dabbled in selling vintage gear, but found that most customers wanted to be sure that they would be able to get replacement needles and cartridges. People continue to argue about whether analog vinyl SOUNDS better than digital CDs or downloads, but the fact is, most people probably don’t really care that much. After all, unless you’re prepared to spend a lot of money on a set of speakers, your sound is going to be compromised no matter whether the medium is analog or digital. Many of today’s vinyl buyers are doubtlessly spinning their new purchases on inexpensive turntables and listening through tinny iPod speakers. In other words, they’re not going “back to vinyl” in pursuit of some audiophile ideal. More likely, they are attracted to records for the simple fact that records are physical objects, and human beings tend to feel a connection with things they can have and hold—unlike the digital downloads that come from iTunes. Vinyl also encourages a different kind of engagement with music: since it’s not really portable, you’re more apt to sit and listen. And since it’s harder with vinyl to skip from song to song, you’re more likely to listen to complete albums. Vinyl moves music from the background to the center—where it belongs.

Bikini (Continued from page 41) familiar with the thong and G-string bikinis, but they may not be familiar with some of the other types, such as the “seekini” (seethrough top and bottom), tankini (tank top and bikini bottom) and camikini (camisole top and bikini bottom). There’s also the hikini, but it’s more commonly found in the bedroom than at the beach. Aside from this, there’s also an entire subclass of bikinis known as microkinis. There’s no need to describe these because the name is self-explanatory. As far as microkinis go, the more micro

the bikini, the more attention the wearer is bound to garner. And if all these options were not confusing enough, within the various bikini fashion lines there are also many different styles and cuts, such as halter, push-up, strapless, etc. In my research I discovered one simple truth, and it’s that when it comes to selecting the perfect beach attire, it’s much simpler for a man than a woman. With so many options available, I sympathize with how difficult it must be for a woman to pick the Have you ordered yours?

perfect beach bikini. For men, the choices are limited and are only applicable to covering that which falls below the waistline. Or so I thought. As I was seeking an ending to my bikini article, I came across a piece of research that I had previously overlooked. And it was about to change my life and probably that of most men on the East End. There is a bikini for men! The Mankini, a 95% polyester and 5% Lycra suit was popularized by Sacha Baron Cohen, when he donned one in the popular movie Borat. It provides the support and comfort a man needs and at the same time affords similar benefits a woman gets when she wears a bikini. It may be the greatest beach invention for men since the introduction of electronic devices that accommodate remote sports viewing and the portable ice chest for beer. Best of all, the Mankini is affordably priced. Online, they are available for less than $20. They come in a variety of colors, including my favorite: leopard print. When mine arrived, I took it for a test spin around the neighborhood. I instantly knew it was a hit because every time I passed someone while I was wearing it, they started pointing and hollering. Some were even taking pictures. How funny is this job of being a journalist? What started as an article on women’s bikinis will no doubt end up influencing an entire group of men on the East End, who will now be wearing the Mankini this summer. Enjoy the season and I will see you on the beach! I’ll be the one wearing the leopard print.

What’s on Tv? it’s All About the Hamptons By Lee MeyeR


he summer’s here, and while most television shows have just wrapped up their seasons, there are still some great series to watch and catch up on. The Hamptons-set medical dramedy Royal Pains kicks off its fifth season on Wednesday, June 12 on USA Network. The series follows concierge doctor Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein) and his younger brother Evan (Paolo Costanzo) as Hank treats rich Hamptonites while Evan manages the practice, “HankMed.” Royal Pains often films in the Hamptons, giving it a much more authentic look than some other series supposedly set on Long Island’s East End. When we last saw Hank and Evan in December’s two-hour special Royal Pains: Off-Season Greetings, Evan and his love Paige (Brooke D’Orsay) tied the knot and decided to invest in the Lawsons’ cousin Owen’s (Charley Koontz) comic shop; Divya (Reshma Shetty) and Rafa (Khotan) made up, got married and burned their marriage license after realizing they were impulsive; Hank landed in surgery as a result of the explosion at Boris’s (Campbell Scott) mansion last summer; and Boris, thought dead, was revealed to be very much alive!

ex-girlfriend Padma (Dilshad Vadsaria) was forced to make before her murder; Daniel may or may not have killed Emily’s secret (and constantly jealous) boyfriend, Aiden (Barry Sloane); Conrad was elected governor, and a devastated Jack aimed a gun at him—until Emily begged him to stop, finally telling him the truth about her identity! Revenge is a fun series, but anyone who’s set foot on Long Island’s East End will instantly cry foul; it’s obvious that this series isn’t filmed in the Hamptons, or anywhere in New York, for that matter. The pilot, set in the summertime in Southampton, was filmed in North Carolina, while the rest of the series has been filmed primarily on sound stages in Los Angeles. The

“Royal Pains” airs on USA on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. “Revenge” airs on ABC on Sundays this fall; season one is available on Netflix, while Hulu Plus subscribers can watch the second season.



Have you heard of Suffolk Hospital? Didn’t think so. But if you can get past these (often hilarious) errors, Revenge is a frothy series... Royal Pains has filmed at many Long Island locations. The authentic locations make for a fun viewing experience for anyone who lives on Long Island. Boris’s mansion (pre-explosion, of course) was filmed at Huntington’s Oheka Castle, while many of the parties on the show were actually filmed in East Hampton. The series also shoots in Oyster Bay. In April, the show put out a casting call for extras in Westhampton and Southampton for some swanky party scenes. ABC’s Revenge just wrapped season two, so now’s the time to catch up for the fall. This primetime soap is about Amanda Clarke (Emily VanCamp), a young woman who has come to the Hamptons under the name “Emily Thorne” to take revenge on a powerful family that framed her father for a crime he didn’t commit. During the first two seasons, Emily went after the evil power couple Victoria and Conrad Grayson (Madeleine Stowe and Henry Czerny) by romancing their handsome (and extremely dim) son, Daniel (Josh Bowman), and turning their teenage daughter, Charlotte (Christa B. Allen), against them. Complications arose when Emily reunited with childhood sweetheart Jack Porter (Nick Wechsler) and her father’s protégé, the delightfully foppish Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann). In May’s (literally) explosive season finale: Conrad orchestrated a fake terrorist attack on his company, Grayson Global, that resulted in Jack’s younger brother Declan’s (Connor Paolo) death; Victoria came face to face with her long-lost mystery son; everyone learned that Charlotte was pregnant with Declan’s child; Nolan was framed for the terrorist group Initiative’s crimes, thanks to a video testimony

writers have made a noble effort to get names of towns right, but try and think of the last time you took a stroll out of your Southampton home for a quick beer in Montauk. One ridiculous scene late in the first season had Emily and Nolan travel from Southampton to Manhasset in the span of one scene! And have you heard of Suffolk Hospital? Didn’t think so. But if you can get past these (often hilarious) errors, Revenge is a frothy series that is perfect for water-cooler chat the following morning.

North Fork Lighthouses Stand as Monuments to Li History By NiCHOLAS CHOWSKe


ong before the North Fork was dotted with wineries, sailing and fishing were the major industries on Long Island—and nothing symbolizes that legacy quite like the lighthouse. Today, three lighthouses in particular stand as monuments to this rich, seafaring heritage. In the town of Southold, on a bluff overlooking Long Island Sound, the Horton Point Lighthouse warns sailors of a shoal just off the coast. This “schoolhouse-style” lighthouse was completed in 1857, by the National Lighthouse Service, 101 years after it was suggested by George Washington. Over the years, eight lighthouse keepers lived and served at Horton Point, until 1933, when a 40-foot steel tower with an automated light was built, and the Horton Point tower went dark. The last keeper left in 1938, after the Great Hurricane, and the building sat mostly vacant, except for a brief time during World War II, when it was used as a lookout by the Civil Defense Corps. After the war, the unoccupied lighthouse succumbed to neglect and vandalism, and was nearly demolished. The old brick building was saved, however, by the Southold Historical Society, and the main residence of the lighthouse was repurposed in 1977 as a nautical museum, which is still open today. In 1990, the steel beacon was removed, and the Horton Point Lighthouse was returned to active service. While the Lighthouse and Nautical Museum is open from Memorial Day through Columbus

day, the Horton Point Park is open year round. For more information, contact the Southold Historical Society at 631-765-5500. The mile-wide channel between the easternmost tip of the North Fork and Plum Island is a dangerous and highly trafficked waterway known as Plum Gut. Here, the waters of the Sound merge with those of Gardner’s Bay, creating a churning mess of swelling waves and riptides. To make matters worse, only the eastern two-thirds of this deep channel is navigable, as the Oyster Pond Reef extends out from Long Island, lying just beneath the surface, marked only by the Orient Point Lighthouse. The Orient Point Lighthouse, affectionately known as the “Coffee Pot” due to its shape, is a cast-iron caisson tower-style lighthouse sitting on 10,000 tons of riprap, or loose stone. Shortly after construction finished in 1899, the 45-foot-tall Coffee Pot began to tilt by about five degrees. It’s suspected that this was either caused by the heavy iron plates that were used to patch cracks and rust spots along its base, or the strong tidal currents, which may have undermined its foundation. Over the years, a number of keepers maintained the Coffee Pot, until 1958, when it was automated. With no lighthouse keeper to maintain the property, the storm-battered beacon fell into disrepair, and in 1970 the Coast Guard announced plans to replace it with a simple steel-pipe tower. The citizens of Orient Point were outraged, and rallied to save and restore their lighthouse. In 2000, the Coast Guard upgraded the Coffee Pot

Three lighthouses in particular celebrate the East End’s rich, seafaring heritage: Horton Point Light, Orient Point Light and “Bug Light.” with solar panels and a new boat launch, only to deem the property excessive in 2011. The Coffee Pot went to auction in the summer of 2012, and was reportedly purchased in September for $120,000. While the lighthouse can be viewed from Orient Point State Park or the Cross Sound Ferry, it’s not accessible to the public. Since 1871, the Long Beach Bar Lighthouse, or “Bug Light,” has been warning sailors of the Long Beach Bar, a sandbar that stretches out from Orient Beach State Park, nearly to Shelter Island. According to local legend, this lighthouse received its quirky nickname from sailors who thought the screw pile pylons made the lighthouse look like a giant bug on the water. The Bug Light welcomed sailors into the Orient Harbor from Gardener’s Bay for generations, until it was burned down by vandals in 1963. But in 1990, the community came together and fully rebuilt and restored the Long Beach Bar Lighthouse to its former Victorian grandeur. Today, the Bug Light is owned and maintained by the East End Seaport Museum and Maritime Foundation, which hosts tours of the lighthouse in the spring, summer and fall. For more information, visit

SPOTLiGHT: Sag Harbor’s Dylan Jenét All Grown Up By Lee MeyeR

ylan Jenét has been a featured singer at the Democratic National Convention and President Obama’s second inauguration, worked with esteemed musician and talent coach Ray Chew, and is doing projects with the legendary Stevie Wonder. She’s also 15 years old. This gifted young performer is going places, but she’s refreshingly humble and down-to-earth about her remarkable career and she still feels very much at home with her family in Sag Harbor. Jenét discovered her love (and talent) of singing when she was five years old. “It was summertime and I didn’t know anybody, so I started doing local plays to meet other kids,” she says. After being noticed in a local play by the late “Miss Sybil” Christopher (as Jenét affectionately calls her), co-founder of the Bay Street Theatre, Jenét got her first professional role in the theatre’s production of Ahrens and Flaherty’s Once On This Island, and has been “working ever since.” Among Jenét’s earliest accomplishments was getting the role of Young Nala in The Lion King on Broadway. The producers wanted to cast her on the spot but had to wait until she was the right height. “I went in one day and they measured me and were like, ‘Okay! You’re in!’” Jenét played Young Nala for seven months. Broadway was just the start for Jenét, who won the Apollo Theater’s 2006 “Star of Tomorrow” award. The musical director for the show, Ray Chew (also the vocal coach for American Idol), soon became her mentor, which led to her meeting the legendary

Stevie Wonder. While anyone would likely be starstruck by the musical icon, Jenét just smiled and shrugged. “It’s pretty cool!” she sighed, before letting out a little giggle.

Meeting Wonder proved to be a major career step for Jenét. The young performer is hard at work on multiple projects with Wonder producing and she couldn’t be happier. They (Cont’d on next page)

We get along really well and we’ll be working and he’ll just go [in a funny, cartoony southern accent], ‘Okay Dylan, so um, just go do what you do!’” Jenét laughs, admitting that she too loves to break into funny voices with friends and family. Jenét sang with Wonder at his annual House of Toys benefit. and she believes in and supports charities and causes that are important to her, including

Alzheimer’s and cancer research, having lost grandparents to both diseases. She also supports Superstorm Sandy relief and Haiti earthquake relief. With her already-dazzling list of achievements, it would be fair to assume that Jenét would have little time for a social life. While she is completing high school online, she maintains a tight circle of friends. “I don’t like to deal with can be mean. It’s better for me to be around my friends, and I get to see them all the time.” She is very close with her family, too. “My family supports me so much,” Jenét gushes, noting that her family is ready to move to California

25 YEARS OF WINES, VINES, AND MEMORIES Wölffer Estate Vineyard is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year! We have asked some friends, patrons and associates who have shared some of these years with us to write about a personal memory they have about Wölffer Estate Vineyard. Have you ever been proven wrong and thoroughly enjoyed the experience? I did exactly that at Wölffer Estate Vineyard one evening a few years ago while tasting chardonnays produced there as far back as 1992 with winemaker Roman Roth. My expectation was that the older bottles would be, if not exactly over the hill, past their peak. Such expectations are theoretically justified since white wines, with minimal amounts of tannin, are far less likely than reds to need or want the enhancing effects of age. In the case of the Wölffer wines, I expected that the oldest vintages would to some degree have flattened out, lost part of their appealing fruit qualities and perhaps taken on heavy oak flavors. I was wrong. The wines were terrific. The reason, I believe, is that these chardonnays are made in traditional European ways, fermented in French oak, classically structured and capable of evolving into subtle and complex wines. Without overstating the case, in depth and longevity they approach in a small way some of the important white Burgundies of the Cote de Beaune. This is a reflection of Roth’s skills. His wines obviously started out with enough acidity and flavor compounds to succeed over time, and were fermented and aged in ideal conditions. Any imbalance would have upset the final result. Naturally some years were more attractive than others, the differences most likely related to the original harvest. Happily, not one had gone bad over the years. Long Island wineries are now producing more focused and engaging chardonnays each year, and Roth at Wölffer Estate Vineyard deserves much of the credit for that accomplishment.

for her career when the time comes. And how about college? “I do want to go to college! People usually think that since I’m a singer I’d want to go for music or something, but I actually want to go to college for fashion. That’s always been my dream. I’ve always wanted to go to FIT,” she exclaims, stating that she even designs some of her own clothes and jewelry. So, what advice does Jenét have for other young people looking to make it big in show biz? “If you love it and you believe in it, then you can achieve it. Keep practicing and working on your craft and you’ll get there. I really believe that.” It’s hard to think of a better role model for young girls (or guys!) who have a dream and aren’t afraid to go after it with everything they’ve got.

This is what a real bobolink looks like.


The Camper From Hell By ANN FOx


amp Immaculata in Mattituck, with its woodsy cabins named after birds, chirped itself to death around 1977. Or so I hoped. More likely the Diocese of Brooklyn no longer found the camp lucrative and succumbed to a tasty offer from a developer. A quick look at the site on Peconic Bay Avenue now shows the camp is extinct. Good. This is one species that should never be coddled back to life. Summer camp is the antithesis of freedom; I hated it. Immaculata was most likely a perfectly good camp. It was created “for children from the city to enjoy their summer in the country.” Therein lies the rub. I did not consider myself from the city. Up to then I hadn’t even realized city kids were so light deprived. In fact, they were as white as the sand around our cabins. And they were skinny. They looked like the overcrowded, thin, pine trees that grew around the camp. In Southold, where I lived, we had sandcolored sand, sand that turned a shade darker when the water lapped over it. We had fat maple trees whose branches shaded us from the heat and whose trunks held up our bicycles. In Southold, we weren’t pale and skinny. We were tanned from fishing off Goose Bay Bridge and swimming at Founder’s Landing. Our arms were strong from lugging pales of mussels home from where they grew on the jetty at the end of the street. Our legs were well-developed from digging for clams in Peconic Bay with our toes. Ann Goubeaud Fox is a retired TWA flight attendant. She resides in Northport and sails with her husband on their boat, Vixen. Their favorite destination: the East End. Ann writes for boating and travel magazines. (She never ever went to camp again.)

Why did that opinionated 11–year–old go to camp in the first place? A friend from the city, whose family rented the house next to ours every August, went to Camp Immaculata every July. She convinced me it was paradise. I’m surprised she didn’t say “bird of paradise” with all the bird stuff there. I begged my parents to let me go. On my first day at camp, this friend ignored me. She was assigned to a cabin for girls a year older, the Blue Jays, and didn’t want to associate with me. I was a Bobolink. Whatever that is. I never even saw one on Long Island. I came to think it wasn’t a bird at all, but something Russians called their grandchildren. Being ignored by the friend was my first disappointment. Then came the real shocker. Everything was done on a schedule. Mornings went like this: You got up and made your bed neatly. At home my brothers and I slept on top of the sheets so we didn’t have to make the bed at all. Then a nun inspected our faces, nails and feet, to make sure we were clean. Mom thought swimming every day cleaned us enough. She checked our nails when company came. We went to the bug-prone open mess hall and ate cereal from the box it came in. I preferred cinnamon toast eaten in front of the TV on our screened-in porch. We had arts and crafts, which included making lanyards like inmates in an old-time funny farm. I had a table of my own in our garage where I made dolls from pipe cleaners, jingle shells and bird feathers. Now for the exciting afternoons. We were allowed to frolic in a small roped-off area where the water was never deeper than two feet. I say frolic, because there wasn’t enough room to swim. We bumped and jumped like feeding time in the fish hatchery. At home, I raced my brothers to the raft set in deep water at Town Beach. (Continued on next page)

Guest (Continued from previous page) And those color-coded bathing caps! No self-respecting local kid would ever be seen in one of those. I could imagine the Road Knights in their low-riding Chevys, pointing their fingers at me and laughing. We could go to the canteen and stand around drinking a sweet mixture called “bug juice.” My girlfriends and I would bike to Jack’s Shack, order cokes and posture while the older boys waved as they drove by trailing dune buggies. We played volleyball, too. Not the kind you see during the Summer Olympics but the old-people-on-cruise-ships kind. It was hot on that field. Kids free to do what they like don’t get hot. A free kid rides a bike Camp may look like fun, but... and feels the cool breeze in the hair; a free kid climbs into a tree house and whittles turned into a screech owl. I made Howlin’ a slingshot in the shade; a free kid swims Wolf sound like Sweet Baby Jane. The nuns and the counselors got together and in a fit underwater and chases horseshoe crabs. In the evening we sang songs in the arts of desperation called my mother. Once she and crafts cabin, standing around a piano arrived, I sat on the hood of her baby-blue played by a pleasant, pale lady of an uncertain station wagon and refused to move until she age, only distinguished from the nuns by her took me home. I was told that the money for clothing, unflamboyant as it was. The people the rest of the two weeks would be forfeited. who did not dedicate themselves to celibacy, I banged on the hood and said I’d pay for were called “lay.” Obviously, the Catholic it myself from my allowance. I exhausted Church hadn’t thought that one through. everyone and they finally gave in. “Miss Kindly Pale” didn’t know Bill Haley’s On that drive home to Southold, no amount “Crazy Man, Crazy” but played a rousing theme of taunting from my brothers in the backseat song, that went “Immaculata we all love you, could suppress my joy. No crybabies allowed on our baseball team. No amount of threats Immaculata indeed it’s true...” By the third day, I was so fed up I could from my mother could dampen my spirits. No scream. On the fourth day the bobolink television for you young lady. You’re confined

to your room. We only got two TV channels anyway, the better one from Connecticut, but they were both fuzzy. And that was the summer I’d planned to sneak-read Gone With the Wind in my room anyway. The ride was glorious. I opened the window to feel closer to my territory. We drove past The Apple Tree Bar and Grill where the big kids parked and played kissy-face. Past the Quonset hut of the Mattituck Theater, which suddenly looked like a Disneyland castle. Past the Cutchogue Diner with its homemade pie smell wafting through the windows. Past Rinehart’s liquor store, the one and only for miles, where my mother would most likely return to pick up something to drink after she locked me in my room. Past Kramer’s Drug Store where my friends were already assembled on the front porch licking ice-cream cones with one hand and holding up their bikes with the other. I started to wave, but my mother slapped back my hand. I got a “job” picking raspberries at a family friend’s farm, but mother decided it cost her more to wash the red stains off my clothes than I was making, so I stopped. My camp debt was forgiven. Later on that summer, I fell off my bike coming back from the beach and got a cut on my knee that scarred. Mother said it was God’s punishment for being selfish and leaving camp. I didn’t care. I don’t care. I look at that scar today and think what a glorious thing it is to be a kid, free, in the summer.

Who’s Here By DAN RATTiNeR

onathan Sobel was born and raised the son of a physician in Ho-Ho-Kus, a small town in New Jersey located in the northern part of that state near the New York border. He’s had a spectacular career in the financial world, joining Goldman Sachs when he was just finishing his junior year at Columbia University at the age of 20, and rising to become, at 31, a Partner Managing Director and then Global Head of the firm’s mortgage department, Global Head of Global Bank Group, Chief Risk Officer for Goldman Sachs Asset Management. For many years, he has been coming out to the Hamptons, initially when he was single in his college years and more recently as a homeowner. Currently he lives with his wife and family both in Manhattan and in a home in Sagaponack that he had designed by the late architect Charles Gwathmey. He thinks the Hamptons is a great place for his kids to be and they are all out here often. He’s an active philanthropist, a tennis player and, of all things, a collector of early technological gadgets and products that, for the most part, he finds on eBay. I interviewed him sitting in his glass-and-mahogany offices in a big Manhattan skyscraper on Madison Avenue, and he became quite animated as he talked about this. For example, he owns a Betamax, the very first commercial device that could record television programs on videotape to watch later. He owns the first Apple Mac. He owns an old Leica camera and an old Hasselblad. “I also have a Polaroid XS70,” he told me. “This was the first fully automatic instant camera Polaroid ever made. I also own a Pulsar watch, the first digital watch on the market, and an early Olivetti portable typewriter designed by Ettore Sottsass. I buy things that are revolutionary, but are also sometimes beautifully designed works of art as well. An Olivetti portable is in New York’s Museum of Modern Art.” These aren’t specifically the first of these things ever made. Those you would have to buy at a very high price at auction at Sotheby’s when they came up. No, Sobel’s hobby is about admiration, an admiration of things technological that changed the world. He has most of these things on shelves in his house in Sagaponack. (Let it be said that I also have that first Olivetti portable typewriter. For many years, I lugged it around while traveling. Stories for this newspaper were written on four continents. And the Olivetti has a place of honor on a shelf in my house too.) All this is of interest because Jonathan Sobel, in the last few years, retired from Goldman

a private prep school in New Jersey, and when he was old enough, he found himself not only good at math and science but also fascinated with it. When he enrolled at Columbia University as a freshman (he graduated in the class of ’88), he initially thought to get a degree in Engineering, figuring that would be the best way to further his career in technology. But he soon changed his major. His degree is in Economics. “It’s quite amazing to me,” I said, “that you got a job at Goldman Sachs while you were still in college.” “I had learned a lot. But all of it was academic. Goldman Sachs has a summer jobs program for college kids. It’s their kind of apprenticeship. We were hired as researchers. And after that summer, I stayed working parttime with Goldman during my senior year, finishing up. I stayed another 20 years.” One night while at Goldman, Sobel attended a party and was introduced to Marcia Dunn, a woman he fell in love with. She was a medical student. A few years later, they married, and they have two children, a son now 12 and a daughter now 8. Dunn now has an ophthalmology practice in Manhattan and Westchester. The Sobels are very active in philanthropy. Jonathan Sobel is a Trustee of the Hospital for Special Surgery, the Whitney Museum, the Dalton School and the Public Art Fund. He’s also a member of the Executive Committee of the Columbia College Alumni Association. And he was the recipient of Columbia College’s Alumni Achievement Award, their Dean’s Award for Service to the college. He’s also a University benefactor. “What was the first car you ever bought?” I asked. “That was an old Mercedes convertible from the 1980s. I bought it used.” “The second car?” “Porsche 911.” I asked him how he came to leave Goldman Sachs. He gave notice in 2008 and left in early 2009. “When Lehman Brothers went bankrupt that year, it created turbulence in the market I had never seen before. And the players in the industry were acting out of fear rather than rational behavior. I was a partner. I had been there 20 years. I would never run the company. And I thought that the chaos would create great investment opportunities.” That year, he formed a partnership with Gerald Ford, a successful financial services entrepreneur in Dallas who was for many years the Chairman of the Board of Golden State Bankcorp, the second largest thrift institution in the nation. Ford sold it to Citicorp for $6 billion in 2002. The company Ford formed with Sobel, DTF Holdings, invests in many projects such as banks, insurance companies and other institutions around the nation.

Almost any of the vehicles sold could be part of his collection. They are like fine watches. I had to ask. “What’s your personal favorite car?” “Everything German made is of the highest quality. But if I had to choose? It would be the new Porsche 911. This is an amazing, iconic car.” I think it fair to say that Jonathan Sobel, now 46, was made to enter the financial world.

Forty years ago, my mother and I sat on the beach at Orient Point and waited for the ferry. Orient Point had an end-of-the-world feel to it. Never mind that we were merely crossing Long Island Sound to New London, on a boat equipped with a snack bar and other modern entertainments. There was still that aura of an outpost—a tiny ticket office perched on the sands, a last glimpse of the Island before we traveled the great water.—“Waiting for the Ferry” by Jean Ely ***

A Moment on Noyac Road By DAviD LiON RATTiNeR

I wish that doing something for somebody else DAVID LION’S nice wasn’t so shocking a concept, but the truth is that doing a favor for a stranger will completely blow his or her mind. Last Sunday, I was stuck in traffic on Noyac Road in Southampton. It was hot, I had the air conditioning going and traffic was moving at a ridiculously slow pace, but I really didn’t mind because I was in no rush. I know the back roads here backwards and forwards, but I’m one of those weirdos who rarely uses them because traffic has never really bothered me. Anyway, to my right I noticed this guy, who looked to be about 40 years old, walking on the side of the road. He was carrying a grocery bag with two hands, he was sweating, and he did not look like a happy camper. I gave him a nod and a smile, and as traffic started to move a bit quicker, I sped up and moved passed him. Then I thought something that should have been obvious to me earlier: “Why am I not offering this poor guy who is a walking in the heat a ride somewhere?” I stopped my car and waited for the guy to catch up and I rolled down the window. “Do you need a lift somewhere?” He instinctively looked at me with an immediate suspicion. “What do you mean?” “I don’t know, you look like you’re tired and it’s hot out and I just figured if you need a ride, I don’t mind taking you somewhere. I am headed towards Southampton Village.” Again, a look of confusion and suspicion, “Really? You mean, like, you’ll just do that?” “Yeah, sure,” I said. “I don’t mind, hop in if you want.” The guy took a second to think, then got in. He quickly introduced himself (I think he said his name was Michael) and said he was headed to a place on North Sea Road. He looked like he hadn’t shaved in a day or so, he was in a t-shirt and he reminded me of my cousin who works as a lawyer in the city, but wearing cargo shorts instead of slacks. We drove in relative silence, but it was comfortable enough, as we were listening to the radio. I could tell he was thinking deeply. About five minutes into the drive he said, “So you just saw me walking and thought that you’d give me a ride? Just like that?” “Yeah, just like that. It’s not a big deal.” “I can’t tell you how much this means to me right now. I just can’t tell you how much


I appreciate this.” I remember feeling philosophical during the drive, thinking, “What is wrong with all of us? Are we that afraid of each other?” The drive was all of 15 minutes. When he got out of the car he thanked me repeatedly, shook my hand with an impressive grip, then used his other hand to grab the top of my hand and repeat the handshake. “I’m not really religious, but God bless you, man. That was just so nice. I just can’t tell you again how much I appreciate you giving me a ride like this.” I got the feeling at that moment that, for this man, it wasn’t just about getting a ride. This was a guy who needed, at that very moment, just one ounce of human decency from a stranger

We drove in relative silence, but it was comfortable enough, as we were listening to the radio. I could tell he was thinking deeply. to restore his faith in humanity, to remind him that there are bright spots in the world. I admit, I need that too. We all do. And it’s just not that hard to give a lift every once in a while. Read more stories from Lion’s Den online at

This Week’s Cover Artist: Peter Beston By MARiON WOLBeRG WeiSS


his week’s cover by British-born Peter Beston gets our attention immediately, although we may not realize why. The Adirondack chairs are familiar enough, but they seem like a still life. We want to know where the setting is and about the people who inhabit the space. Moreover, the inanimate objects appear to possess a life of their own. Beston’s other works have similar traits. For example, his buildings, olive trees and still lifes also evoke a narrative or plot, almost like a movie would. Which makes sense, because Beston is a film editor and had his own postproduction company in the East End of London. it’s fascinating that your training was in film editing and that has influenced the narrative quality of your art. How else did film influence your work? I worked in commercials with the Scott Brothers, and I learned a lot from them. I was bedazzled by their use of light and composition. This was the Golden Age of commercials in England in the 1970s to the 1990s. Everything I learned from commercials, like their economy. i know you have won some top awards in editing commercials. Can you give us an example? Yes, I won a best editing award for a brand of orange juice at Cannes (advertising competition), and in London in 1988 for Saab motor car.

Beston studied art in high school in South Croyden and then went to art school in Hempstead in London and at West Dean Art School in Sussex.

How was your cover image influenced by editing? My sister bought some chairs and put them on her porch. I was drawn to their structure and color. I considered painting them for a year. It became about arrangement of color and form. I did two works. One was called “Easter Chairs.” The other is called “Restless,” and it’s the one on the cover. Why the title “Restless?” The observer looks at the image and never settles on any object. They go from object to object. That experience says a lot about your intention. I want the image to be subversive. I want the observer to see the world as I see it. To take something familiar and see something new.


i imagine your favorite filmmakers also subvert what they are doing. They want to surprise the viewers. Ang Lee challenges convention. He is not only a master filmmaker but a master artist. Steven Soderbergh still manages to surprise you. Pedro Almodovar is a favorite, too. The Coen Brothers challenge us when they move from genre to genre. What was your artistic training like in england before you went into film? I studied art in high school in South Croyden and then went to art school in Hempstead in London and at West Dean Art School in Sussex. My grandfather had a farm in Hastings, and I would go there. My surroundings influenced me when I did landscapes and seascapes. I turned my eyes to the natural world. In the natural world, I can hone my senses. How about the future? I want to strive to become more interpretive with color combinations and composition. This will lead to my doing more abstraction. you decided to leave film and paint full time. Why? I wanted to put my paintings out there to see what people think about them—if they saw what I saw. Contact Peter

Home Improvement Dot Com BY MattheW aPFel

I’ve written many columns about apps and gadgets for your home, from robotic vacuums to smart thermostats to remotecontrolled leak detectors. But what’s out there to help you plan and perform those improvements? What’s Your Design? Most big design stores (Crate + Barrel, DWR) have excellent free apps with basic tools to help measure and develop a furniture plan. The issue: these apps only feature products from their own stores. For an unbiased design app, check out Houzz. It’s free to download and contains over 1.5 million photos of actual rooms, with thought starters for every taste, style and price point. The best apps are simple and fun, and Houzz checks both boxes. You just browse photos until you find something you like and search to define your desired room. Some items in the photos are marked with green tags; tap the ticket to reveal pricing and purchasing info. Houzz also contains a database of local stores, contractors and merchants to source materials and perform the work. It’s all sorted by name, category and product. Some call this app the Wikipedia of interior design, but I think it’s more of a cross between Yelp and Flickr. Whatever you think, Houzz is worth a long look. Don’t forget the separate app that’s dedicated to kids’ rooms.

Measure Up Buying the right amount of materials is another key home-improvement challenge. There’s nothing more frustrating than realizing you bought too little or too much paint. Handy Man DIY is a useful app for calculating surface areas with precision. The app has data fields to enter the dimensions of the room from floor to ceiling. You enter data for windows, doors, outlets and switches. Once complete, the app instantly calculates the amount of materials you’ll need for the job. It costs $1.99 but will pay for itself the first time you use it. Just Do It Okay, you’ve chosen your design and measured the space. If you plan to do it yourself, I highly

recommend a visit to Howcast is the leading “how-to” video site. It contains over 25,000 short, simple videos explaining proper ways to install, clean, build, wash, tie, eat, cook and more. The difference is quality; lots of weekend warriors post homemade videos on DIY, but all of the clips on Howcast are professionally produced using expert talent to walk you through the process. Even if your product seems simple or comes with a good instruction manual, a quick check in with Howcast will help you do it quickly and do it right. That’s it for now—time to put another coat of paint on the wall.


Don’t like the red color on that dresser? Tap a button to see it in brown or blue. Want to view the room from a different angle? Swipe. Floor Plan Once you’ve sparked your imagination, it’s time to make a plan. Home Design 3D is pretty cool and useful. The app lets you create a virtual design studio. You start with a blank photo of the space you want to decorate, then access a menu of images—chairs, tables, armoires, carpets, etc.—and drag them into the room. You can mix, match and arrange into whichever layout you prefer, giving you an accurate preview of what the stuff will look like when you pull it all together. What about the 3D part? This is where it gets really cool. Once you’ve assembled your floor plan, you can view the entire room in 3D. Don’t like the red color on that dresser? Tap a button to see it in brown or blue. Want to view the room from a different angle? Swipe your finger to adjust the panorama. You can even sample wallpapers, surfaces and hardwood floors. There are limitations. You can’t upload the actual photo of the room you plan to design. But you can create a mockup using the exact dimensions of the space. It’s not cheap ($6.99) but it’s worth it. I recommend the iPad version; it takes advantage of the larger screen and expanded color options.

Last Thursday night, country superstar Blake Shelton organized a “Healing in the Heartland” concert in Oklahoma City to raise money for tornado relief efforts in nearby Moore, Oklahoma. An avid country music fan, I was obliged to tune in. As the screen behind the stage rolled through photos of the devastation, I couldn’t help but think of the 12-12-12 concert that was organized for Sandy relief, and how I felt when they flashed scenes of my devastated home state. The East End was largely spared by Sandy, but it was all too easy to identify with the devastation and the people most deeply affected. As Blake Shelton, an Oklahoma native, crooned popular tunes, you could see the sense of need on his face. “Everyone has their way to help, and mine as an entertainer is to perform to help raise money and awareness for this tragedy,” Shelton said in a release on his website. “This is why I want to do this special and especially hold it in Oklahoma City, which is near ground zero.” That stuck with me. I’m not a singer, so I cannot imagine going out there and raising money and awareness like Shelton did. But I’ve recently learned of the

Hamptons SUP Race Series, and I can’t help but think of how perfect the events are to celebrate the East End and raise money for worthy causes. With five races held throughout the East End, either in bays or in the ocean, the series supports various charities, and each offers both an elite and recreational class. The first event was held in Northwest Harbor on May 18, and proceeds benefitted the East Hampton Volunteer Ocean On top of the world Rescue Squad. My plan is to sign up for the August 17 Paddle for Pink in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, held at Havens Beach in Sag Harbor. The triangular course is set in beautiful Shelter Island Sound and offers a three-mile recreational and six-mile elite race. For those who feel slightly more confident on their board in the ocean, check out the Paddle Race for Humanity on June 16. The race will be held on Beach Lane in Wainscott. It’s a six-mile surf zone course where paddlers enter the surf from a beach start and then follow a downwind course to the finish line. If you haven’t tried SUP yet, working toward the August 17 race could be a good goal. Flying Point Surf and Sport in Southampton,

Paddle for a Cause: That’s What’s SUP! which recently opened a new, flagship location on Main Street, confirms that stand up paddleboarding will again be the sport of the summer. Rental boards flew off the shelves in 2012, and they’re gearing up for an even higher demand this year. Consider taking a SUP lesson, or rent a board at any of our area surf shops and check out these launch locations. Just be sure to check area parking regulations before you go!

Sand Findings and Stories Untold One of the most fun things that we never do enough of is beachcombing. Wandering around the water’s edge, especially after a storm, looking at what the ocean left behind, is one of life’s simple pleasures. In 30 years of beachcombing, my mother had collected about seven large jars of beach glass. So what can you do with beach glass? The most common decorative patch is to put small amounts of beach glass in jars for no apparent reason and put them by lamps on bookshelves. Beach glass also looks good in fish tanks. On Shelter Island you are allowed to give out beach glass in little bags as party favors, or if it’s Halloween you can add some M&M’s and pass them off as trick or treat. Martha Stewart says we can glue beach glass around a picture or mirror frame to create a beach-chic look. You can also get the top of a shoebox, fill it with sand, and put five pieces of beach glass in it and pass it off as a desktop zen garden. When people get stressed out, they can rearrange the glass in the sand, and if that doesn’t restore mental harmony and realign their chakras, they can always resort to throwing some of the sand in the eyes of the people who are stressing them.

More seaglass for my Mason jar!

I don’t seem to find much beach glass when I beachcomb. I seem to find strange things— underwear, one lonesome shoe and half of a wallet. One time I did find a message in a bottle, but the person failed to seal it very well, so the paper inside was blank. I clearly did not get the message. By far the strangest thing I ever found on the beach was about 20 wooden piano keys. How did they get there? I could understand losing articles of clothing, because things can fall off of a boat, but who brings a piano on a boat picnic? “Jane, I’m having such fun! Danny is going to play piano for us!” “He has a piano here on his yacht? Oh,

to be rich.” “Danny’s getting some guys to help him push the piano onto the back deck so he can play under the stars.” “High-class decadence, may God curse me with it.” “The weather is coming up, Danny should leave that piano inside the yacht.” “Too late, it’s out and Wendy the Wonderful has draped herself over the piano and is singing her tequila version of ‘My Way’.” “Gee, the water’s really choppy, the boat is rocking really bad.” “Oh God! The piano! It went in!” “Well it’s too late now, there it goes...Look! It floats!”

You know, when you think about it, if your piano slides off your yacht, it can really put a dent in your day. Cuz how do you get it back on the boat? I suppose you’d have to rope it and tow it. I would give anything to see a yacht towing a piano into the harbor. For that matter, any floating wooden instrument like a passing cello, harp, or violin would certainly get people’s attention. If you saw something like that in the water, you’d know there was an interesting story behind it. So the next time you see underwear washed ashore, remember there’s a story behind it, because there once was a behind in it. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Yes, I’m a Car Star By ROBeRT GeLBeR

Have I got a treat or two for you who read this column and like both cars and movies. The first is to turn you on to a short five-minute video on the internet from a little- known 1959 film, Never Steal Anything Small starring the great Jimmy Cagney. In the film, Jimmy and singer Cara Williams do a song-and-dance number called “Sorry, I Want a Ferrari.” The entire scene takes place in a foreign car showroom set. A stunning array of 1959 foreign cars are sung about and seen, including a Mercedes 190 SL, Jag XK150, Isetta, Volvo P44, AC Ace and even a Borgward Isabella. Most interesting was an Alfa Gulia, with its price tag of $3,295 displayed on the hood. Of course, the star car is a glorious 1959 Ferrari (it looks like a “Super America” or “Tour de France” model) that Williams sings about. Cagney complains to her that the Ferrari is too expensive at $14,000! If this iconic and absolutely delightful film footage doesn’t put a smile on your face, you’re dead. Click onto Jimmy Cagney “Sorry I Want a Ferrari.” Another entertaining film that features a Ferrari as a star car is one in which yours truly appeared. The year was 1971 when I received a frantic call from the producer of a film they were shooting in Manhattan. It seemed the

Hamptons Collegiate Baseball Celebrates Opening Day

Harbor Seal Pup Rescued from Atlantic Beach

RiveRHeAD: Here sharky, sharky! The Long island Aquarium & exhibition Center will launch its brand-new Shark Keeper program on July 1. Adventurers age 16 and older are invited to get up close and very personal with the Aquarium’s largest exhibit, the 120,000-gallon Lost City of Atlantis Shark Exhibit, and its biggest predators. Participants experience the once-in-a-lifetime chance to pole feed sand tiger sharks. Plus they get the opportunity to take a tour of other behind-thescenes animal care work areas and go home with a real-life shark tooth! Each hour-long session is limited to just three participants. Shark fans can register by phone at 631-208-9200, ext. H20.

Severe Hurricane Season Is Here The 2013 Hurricane Season officially began on June 1, and as hard as it might be to imagine now—less than eight months after Superstorm Sandy hit—we could be headed for an even more potent storm season this year. The recent forecast from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center says there “is a 70% likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher)” and that “these ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes.”

Aquarium Launches New Shark Keeper and Feed Program

HAMPTONS: On Sunday, both locals and visitors took to root, root, rooting for the Hamptons, as Hamptons Collegiate Baseball celebrated Opening Day of the 2013 season—its first as a Major League Baseball sanctioned league. The Westhampton Aviators lost to the Southampton Breakers, with a final score of 5–4. The North Fork Ospreys headed to Riverhead to play the Tomcats, losing 5–4, and the Shelter Island Bucks traveled to the home of the Sag Harbor Whalers and were bested 5–2. Hamptons Collegiate Baseball pools top college ballplayers nationwide, providing free, family-friendly entertainment on the East End thoughout the summer. “It really is a slice of Americana,” says Bret Mauser, the president of Hamptosn Collegiate Baseball. “You can just drive down the street and experience the sights and sounds of a baseball game.” Hamptons Baseball began in 2008, fielding one team in the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League. They soon expended to their own division with seven teams. This year, Hamptons Collegiate Baseball will be in a league of its own, newly sanctioned by Major League Baseball as one of 12 such leagues in the country.

Southampton Hospital Dialysis Center Honored SOUTHAMPTON: Southampton Hospital’s Regional Dialysis Center has been recognized for the second consecutive year for its exemplary patient safety program at its Hampton Bays Atrium site. The Five-Diamond Award is presented by IPRO’s End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Network of New York, which is dedicated to assisting dialysis and renal transplantation centers in establishing and maintaining high standards of care for ESRD patients. The Southampton Hospital Regional Dialysis Center is one of only 24 facilities out of 243 in the state to have currently achieved this award. Licensed by the New York Department of Health, the hospital’s stateof-the-art Regional Dialysis Center offers a full range of treatments in an environment designed for optimum comfort. Individual televisions, WIFI access, as well as the generous donation by the J. Couper Lord Foundation of specially designed reclining chairs with a special gel cushion, all enhance the comfort of patients. Dr. Gaylord Hoffert, a board-certified nephrologist and the Center’s Medical Director, says, “We have a great team that strives to give each patient the best care possible.” The Center offers evening appointments for those who are working during the day, and there is 24-hour access in case of an emergency.

HAMPTONS: On Saturday, June 1, biologists with the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation rescued a three-day-old seal pup from The Sands, Atlantic Beach. The female seal pup, only 2 ½ feet in length with her umbilical cord still attached, was observed struggling against the surf and was taken to the Riverhead Foundation’s marine mammal hospital at the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead. It’s unknown if the pup was abandoned by her mother or separated from her due to the high volume of people on the beach. The Hempstead Bay Constables and lifeguard personnel provided the pup with protection from other human interference upon observing the public pouring water on her. It is illegal under federal law to pick up, handle or interact with marine protected species, which includes harbor seals. Often an adult female may abandon its pup to run from an approaching human or dog but will likely return when the threat is gone. If the pup is nursing during an incident like this, it will not survive. The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation recommends staying at least 150 feet away from a seal on a beach, as its mother may be around the corner, and to keep other people or dogs away from it. Call the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation at 631369-9829 for more information on what to do upon seeing a beached marine protected species and call the NOAA Fisheries Service hotline at 1-866-6622.

Paddleboarding Popular In Riverhead


addleboarders are leading the way when it comes to exercising and sightseeing along the eight-mile stretch of the Peconic River that runs through downtown Riverhead and out into the bay. Jim Dreeben, “the boss” at the Peconic Paddler, located on Peconic Avenue in the heart of downtown Riverhead, says paddleboards are his best seller. Dreeben, 73, describes himself as one of the oldest merchants in Riverhead. He started to canoe when he was 12 years old before moving on to kayaks and

ultimately getting into stand up paddleboarding, a sport he describes as “pretty easy to do” and very good exercise. Dreeben has been selling and renting canoes, kayaks and paddleboards at his shop since the 1980s. “People understand the value of exercising and being physically fit.” Paddleboards are less expensive than canoes and kayaks and are easy to transport. A top-of-the-line board costs about $1,600 and a paddle sets you back another $300 depending on what you buy. You can

While paddleboarding may seem like a relatively new “surface water sport” it actually dates back to the 1700s when natives paddled out to sailing ships in the harbor as depicted, for example, in an engraving dating back to 1781 created by John Webber, the ship’s artist for Captain James Cook.

Gurney’s new product line.

Exciting events on The End.

By terence lane


ight before last Memorial Day weekend there was a lot of hype surrounding a new Mexican restaurant opening on South Etna Street in Montauk. I was all over it. So were my two friends. “Town” was coming back to life. The cherry trees were in full bloom, their limbs heavy with luxuriant pink wands. The shads were in. The season was about to explode, and El Vaquero Mexican Food was ready to reveal itself to the curious masses. I bought tacos opening day. It was love at first crunch. I wouldn’t write about a restaurant if I didn’t think it deserved its praise, and after a year of eating excellent, fresh, and inexpensive lunches there, I now feel obliged to compliment an establishment that has produced so consistently. Owned and operated by Miguel Hernandez and his wife, Elizabeth, El Vaquero has become my go-to lunch spot. Miguel, born in Mexico and cooking Mexican food since he was 16 in California’s San Fernando Valley, has brought his passion, wealth of knowledge and care for authentic Mexican cuisine to Montauk. When asked what makes his food special, Hernandez replied, “It’s just so authentic. If you’re making tacos, you need to understand how to make a good sauce—otherwise, anyone can do a taco.” This attention to detail has gained El Vaquero a loyal following of taco junkies like me. A friend of mine, who has since

moved to California, was going to El Vaquero so much that he had to take a forced hiatus, embarrassed by his over-patronage. It hasn’t reached that point for me, but sometimes I question my love for the fried pork, one of several meat choices available on any of their quesadillas, gorditas, tortas, burritos and hard or soft tacos. For me, the fried pork, tender, a little fatty and a little crispy, is the only choice, but pulled chicken, marinated pork, chorizo, steak, and even beef tongue, are options, too. El Vaquero makes its hot sauce from roasted tomatillos, chipotle (for smokiness), and chiles de arbol, or, “chilis of the tree.” I’ve taken the sauce home and put it on scrambled eggs, sandwiches, hot dogs, added it to the chili pot. It’s the perfect way to shock-treat any ordinary—especially leftover—dish. But if you find it’s all a bit too much, and things have simply gotten too spicy—chill. There is a remedy. It’s called horchata, possibly El Vaquero’s greatest achievement. A white, ricebased drink circulated in a large cooler at the counter. If you’ve never had it, there is no good facsimile. It is sublime, both light and heavy at the same time. A panoply of cinnamon, vanilla, milk and rice flavors, the exact processing of El Vaquero’s horchata is a closely guarded secret. Miguel was rightfully hesitant to even discuss it at all: “People want to know how to make it. They have offered to pay me for the recipe, they want to serve it in their restaurants. A lot

of customers come here just for the horchata.” While El Vaquero is a self-described take-out restaurant, if you walk around back you’ll find a tranquil picnic area with shaded tables. It’s never crowded and the din of the ocean can be heard just one block away. As I was leaving El Vaquero the other day, Elizabeth was slicing a beautiful cocoa flan, smooth flan layered over a slab of rich chocolate cake. I bought a slice to go. Sometimes what keeps you coming back to a place is more than just the quality of the product. Sometimes it has more to do with the quality of the people delivering the product. In El Vaquero’s case, it’s both. Open seven days. 631-668-8383.

Gurney’s Puts “Fabulous” in Four Bottles By susan saiter sullivan


he sea and freshness are what Gurney’s Inn Resort & Spa has always been about. But now it’s also about body and hair products from Gurney’s Sea Water Spa and Thalasso Center. (Thalasso comes from the Greek, it means medical use of seawater as a form of therapy; there are thalasso centers all over Europe, particularly in France.) Recently I received a package of four beautiful beauty products the spa is now offering. They call them Gurney’s Seawater Spa products—I call them Montauk Point-In-A-Bottle—they turn my shower to a misty dousing from ocean waves. Busy getting the house ready for visitors, I didn’t try out the new goodies for a few weeks. Then, real spring weather arrived. Coming home from my first springtime 2013 jog on Ocean Road Beach, I climbed into the shower to get the beach off of my skin. That didn’t happen. Instead, as I pumped out a handful of the Revitalizing Marine Shampoo, the ocean invaded. This is an indescribable smell, with a unique formula. First is sea fennel, which grows along English sea cliffs, and which helps the formula reinforce hair strength and make it more resilient. There’s also Vitamin E and Vitamin B-5, which are supposed to soothe all the damage I do to my hair when I blow-dry it and go out into the frizzinducing sun and beach air. But more interesting still, it contains red algae—also known as Irish moss—and Brown Algae—aka Bladderwrack—to put the moisture back. The glorious smell comes from Dewberry. The products are the result of two years of intensive research and development and they are now offered to the public, as well as spa-goers, by Lola Monte, the wife of the late Nick Monte. Nick, the creator the United State’s only thalasso center, drank

a shot of seawater every day, and was a firm believer in the healing powers of the sea. Once I rinsed and my hair had that nice squeak to it to let me know it was clean and rid of all the other conditioners and sprays and gels and other guck I had been putting on it that week, I squeezed out a handful of the Seawater Spa Nourishing Marine Conditioner. Similar formula, but it went on smooth as silk (there I go alliterating again—can’t help Gurney’s in a bottle it!). I noticed that the container said the ingredients in these products are 100% vegan and biodegradable. Also, they don’t have the junk a lot of other hair stuff does, like parabens, petrochemicals and synthetic fragrances that smell more like something you spray on the laundry bin to attack mildew than the clean-and-classy smell you want your crowning glory to send out. Now it was time for the Toning Marine Shower Gel. There it was again—that Seawater formula redolent of natural seaside odors, along with green tea and its antioxidant powers to hydrate skin and do other good things. I have a real problem with allergies, but my skin loved this. Not one bit of itch, and it rinsed

off clean and smooth. I climbed out of the shower and, inhaling all that good stuff in the steam, applied the Firming Marine Lotion, which contains many of the other ingredients. Wow! Not a bit sticky. And my allergyprone skin soaked it in without a complaint, but instead, my sun-battered (it’s only May, but damage from previous years adds up to flakiness and threatens to turn to alligator skin in some spots) skin smoothed out and behaved like baby’s skin. But it had a glow that was all grown-up and sexy-looking. Now I have something to look forward to after my beautiful morning run splashing through the waves. One last thing. I had a weekend guest coming, and as I got the guest room ready with fresh new linens and tidied up the guest bath, I took out the grab-bag array of junky-looking old bottles of shampoos and conditioners and gels—and replaced them with just these four pretty bottles in their sea-tone, minimalist containers. They transformed the shower my guests would use from a little too family-friendly, into something pristine and classy that says “Welcome!”

Opera Gone Wild at Bay Street Theatre


ay Street Theatre’s 2013 Mainstage Season opened on June 1 with a wacky production of Ken Ludwig’s Lend Me a Tenor. A meticulously controlled chaos unfolds from the moment Noah Plomgren bursts onstage as the continuously panicked assistant/amateur opera singer Max and doesn’t let up once. When Italian tenor virtuoso Tito Merelli (Roland Rusinek) refuses to rehearse following a fallout with his wife Maria (Judy Blazer) and has a few too many sleeping pills with his wine, opera director Saunders (Steve Rosen) forces Max to impersonate the larger-than-life star and perform as the title role in Othello, thinking Tito has died. What follows is pitch-perfect farce that audiences will enjoy, especially if they’ve come across these melodramatic artistic types before; by show’s end, it’s very clear that we’ve just witnessed a comic opera (sans singing, mostly) of these characters’ own design, even if they don’t realize it themselves. Farce can fly off the rails if the pacing lags or the characters don’t match the energy of the script. In the capable hands of director Don Stephenson, all of the actors in the play are clearly in sync with one another and are all in on the joke (without resorting to broad camp). Rosen absolutely commands the stage as the neurotic Saunders, making sure his character is always on the brink of either fainting or killing someone. Plomgren, onstage for most of the show, does a great job taking Max from one

ridiculous situation to another, while Rusinek takes what could have been a more one-note plot device character and gives Tito real warmth and heart without forgetting that he’s “Il Stupendo.” The rest of the cast is uniformly excellent: Betsy DiLellio plays the seemingly demure, actually wild Maggie with the face of an ingénue and the personality of a college The cast in action girl on spring break. Donna English is hilarious as the insecure leading lady Diana, especially when attempting to seduce Tito. Nancy Johnston nails Julia, the all-too-familiar busybody who thinks she’s helping while actually making things much worse. Blazer is fiery as Maria, her exaggerated accent the cause for many laughs. Scott Cote’s obnoxious Bellhop doesn’t miss a beat, with the audience in stitches every time he shows up at just the wrong moment. And Plomgren and Rusinek do a wonderful job singing throughout, showcasing very legitimate talent in an evening of outrageousness. The lovely production design complements the performances. Set in a hotel suite, Ken Goldstein gives the scene a soft, creamy color that is aesthetically pleasing. Goldstein clearly understands the importance of a set in a farce, with doors slamming, characters on all sorts of different positions on couches, beds and chairs and props flying all over the place. Wade Laboissonniere’s costumes are

gorgeous, and Max’s Othello costume looks appropriately unwieldy. It wouldn’t be fair to spoil Max’s costume change at the end of Act I, but suffice it to say there will be plenty of gleeful laughs and gasps. Although the second act is rife with (good-natured) sexual hijinks, the show is basically appropriate for all ages, since the comedy is big and the humor often physical. The combination of Ludwig’s script, Stephenson’s direction, the actors’ tremendous work and the production design makes the production feel like a fully-orchestrated musical comedy, which can be a treat for audiences who are tired of always having to wear their intellectual thinking caps to the theatre.

Cartier-Bresson Originals at Harper’s Books By marion wolBerg-weiss

Anytime we have an opportunity to view photographs by Henri CartierBresson it’s a real treat, but those now at Harper’s Books are a double treat: rare vintage prints from the 1950s and 1960s originally included in Cartier-Bresson’s first major 1966 Japanese exhibit in Tokyo. While most people can’t help but recall the photographer’s iconic image of an old man sitting beside an amorous couple, the current show features different kinds of relationships among individuals from around the globe. Most of the various figures do not seem to be engaged with one another, just like the old man in that Parisian park who exists in his own world. Yet, some photographs evoke an opposing set of dynamics: groups of people congregate, united for a single goal. There are other differences in this intriguing series: the presence of both long shots and medium shots; diverse directions that the figures take. First, the non-engagement of Cartier-Bresson’s subjects. Consider “Tokyo,” a gathering for a funeral where the mourners are looking in different

directions, each in his/her own sphere. Separation is also a theme in “Rome,” where a man stands alone in a window; single non-human objects take up spaces in other parts of the window. A third example is “Texas,” where two young boys stand alone, separated in space by pictures of people. Conversely, there are photographs by Cartier-Bresson showing individuals in groups attending to the same activity or event. “Funeral of the Charonne Victims” conveys a sense of solidarity and purpose. So, too, does “Village Ladies Listening to French President Charles de Gaulle, Near Aubenas, France.” work by Henri Cartier-Bresson. The women are standing on the steps, arms crossed, giving intense attention to de Gaulle, whom we do not see. Cartier-Bresson juxtaposes long and close-up shots for arresting effects as well. Consider the panoramic views of “Eton,” when three figures walk across a city square. The medium shot of the mourners in “Tokyo” allows us to become part of the scene in “Tokyo” and feel the grief. Another opposition

concerns the various directions that people take, like two men in the “Berlin Wall.” One is a soldier, one a wounded individual. Do these figures represent the different characteristics of both sides of the Berlin Wall? “Prizren, Yugoslavia” is another photo that communicates three men taking different paths on a small street. Cartier-Bresson’s lack of engagement between people reminds this critic of signature paintings by Eric Fischl where figures do not even look at each other. Who would have ever imagined this similarity between Cartier-Bresson and Fischl?

Forget Your Troubles, Pick Up This Beach Read By Joan Baum

With the Boston Marathon bombings in mind, Alan Glynn’s new novel Graveland (Picador) may seem eerily prescient. His tale turns on violent acts committed by two brothers—the younger one, a college student in thrall to the older one who belongs to a radical anti-American protest group. Being called a “paranoid thriller” for the Occupy generation, the novel taps into what seems to be a hot new murder mystery genre—the killing of Wall Street one percenters—baddy investment bankers, hedge fund managers and private equity CEOs. What distinguishes Glynn’s book is the economy of style, apparent in dialogue and interior ruminations, and inventive plotting that effortlessly moves from one character to another from a wholly different world. Glynn knows how to braid seemingly independent strands together. Even chapter epigraphs belatedly take on significance—excerpts from a manuscript called “House of Vaughan” which is about the founding and development of a billion-dollar empire. Until close to the end the reader does not know how James Vaughan, the aged but still controlling patriarch of the empire (who is on his sixth wife), is connected to the killings in the opening section or to the 30-something investigative journalist Ellen Dorsey who happens to have been nearby with an iPhone camera when the two boys shoot their first victim. It’s not improbable that Graveland may go the way of Glynn’s previous award-winning novel Bloodland, Dan'sPapers_Jun7_v3_Bay ST 5/30/13 4:58 PM Page 1

which was made into a movie starring Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper. The new one’s also got a complex, timely theme, enough widely different city scenes along with upstate and Long Island settings to tantalize imaginative camera folks and a wealth of colorful, diverse characters. And, for sure, it’s got that eye-catching opening: “Jeff Gale leaves his building at 8:15 a.m. It’s a Saturday morning, and 74th Street is quiet. A taxi glides by. Across the street an old lady stands with her poodle waiting for it to take a dump.” The ordinary prose and the expanded paragraph that slyly hints at class critique set up the blunt action that follows: Gale, rich and work obsessed, is out on a routine run in Central Park when two youngsters suddenly trot up in the wrong direction. A gun appears. Pop. Gale is dead. Cut to feature writer Ellen Dorsey who does pieces for Parallax magazine, run by a fearless guy “who’s just a couple of sandwiches short of wearing a bow tie.” Dorsey has a well-deserved reputation as a smart, honest, thorough but “polemical, pottymouthed, uncooperative bitch.” She cares more about her work than men, but she has a good, if hardly sentimental, heart. She’s just published a story on the “astrotweeting” of a former governor, part of a series she’s doing on the “degraded nature of modern presidential candidates”(“astrotweeting” is phonying up online followers and dummy accounts). She should be attending to PR for the acclaimed piece, but a domestic murder trial is capturing the nation’s

attention on TV, and, besides, there’s something about the Gale killing that gets to her, and her iPhone has captured something the media missed (hello, Blowup). Doggedly expert, she starts doing research. She’s intuitive, a shrewd observer. She’s also coolly analytical: at a bar she sees a skinny guy in a business suit perched on a stool, at the other end of the bar a construction worker spilling off his, which prompts her to muse: Where’s Norman Rockwell when you need him?” Switch to Frank Bishop, an ordinary 40-something guy, a former architect who was downsized in the 2008 financial crisis and who works at menial chores to make ends meet, which they don’t. Divorced, depressed, he worries about his daughter Lizzie who attends college upstate. Little does he know, nor Ellen at the time, that Lizzie is the girlfriend of the younger assailant. But how is Frank linked to Ellen and to James Vaughan, and how is anyone linked to Craig Howley, Vaughan’s second-in-command, whom Vaughan has asked to take over the helm at the Oberon Capital Group, much to Howley’s egocentric delight. And what’s with the (apparently) unrelated Connie Carillo murder trial? The substance of Graveland may at times be more than a reader can (or will want to) absorb, but one of the rewards of well-written financial mysteries is the lore they impart. How many books may prompt looking up The Glass-Steagall [Banking] Act of 1933?

Art Appreciation By sTepHanie De Troy


Photo by Matt Clark

he East End has long been a haven for artists. Now with a handful of flourishing art galleries, as well as new ones popping up every year, we’ve taken a sampling and asked the owners what it is they like best about having a gallery out east and what we can look forward to seeing from them this summer. Here’s what they had to say:

TRIPOlI PATTERSON, OWNER/DIREcTOR Of TRIPOlI gAllERy Of cONTEmPORARy ART. What I Love: “Being surrounded by nature when I’m not in the gallery.” What We’ll See: “You can look forward to seeing a collection of artists who have a connection to the East End of Long Island, including Richard Prince.” Tripoli Gallery specializes in Contemporary Art, showing the work of both emerging and established artists. With one foot in Manhattan, you’re sure to have spotted Tripoli’s pop-up gallery on Madison Avenue this past winter. 30A Jobs Lane, Southampton. 631-377-3715

ScOTT BluEDORN, OWNER/DIREcTOR Of NEOTERIc fINE ART. What I Love: “The best part of having a gallery in the Hamptons is the amazingly diverse audience we attract. On any given day we could have artists, surfers, farmers, hedge-fund managers, rock stars, actors, moms, kids, or average Joes walking in and enjoying the same inspiring atmosphere.” What We’ll See: “This summer we will be presenting some very thematically driven, accessible exhibitions: Surfing, Music, Environmental Consciousness, and Gender Empowerment will be on the menu, as well as many benefits, lectures, performances and

workshops featuring primarily young, local and emerging artists.” Initially an artists’ collective, Neoteric Fine Art highlights the work of artists native to the East End and hosts artistic and cultural events throughout the year. 208 Main Street, Amagansett. 631-838-7518

ERIc fIRESTONE, OWNER Of ERIc fIRESTONE gAllERy. What I Love: “The beach.” What We’ll See: “Kenny Scharf, Sanford Biggers, Bäst, and the baseball show.” (The baseball show, “Seventh-Inning Stretch,” is a group exhibition co-curated by Carlo McCormick and Eric Firestone.) Eric Firestone Gallery creates groundbreaking exhibitions featuring the work of top contemporary artists. “Nose Job,” in 2011, called upon artists Ryan McGinness, Richard Prince, Raymond Pettibon, Shepard Fairey and Kenny Scharf to create original

works of art on military aircraft nose cones. 4 Newtown Lane, East Hampton. 631-604-2386

Amy WORTh, OWNER Of ThE SOuTh STREET gAllERy. What I Love: “We’ve been on the North Fork for six years and love it there! For a small town Greenport, and the surrounding towns, has a large art community who help support our artist workshops, shows and weekly life drawing workshops.” What We’ll See: “Farmstand Fresh, with Jeanne Betancourt and Manuela Soares. In July Alice Denison will show new works and in September and the fall will feature Bernardo Casanuevo and Aurelio Torres.” Located in a landmark building, a former horse drawn firehouse, the gallery shows works by both established and emerging artists. 18 South Street, Greenport. 631-477-0021

Movies... HoT FliCks THis week… ÉvoCaTeur: THe morTon Downey Jr. movie Before Hannity, before Bill O’Reilly, before Glenn Beck, there was Morton Downey Jr. Broadcasting from Secaucus, NJ. Syndicated far and wide, Morton Downey Jr. took to the airwaves to bully liberals, provoke confrontations, fan the flames of rancor and discord, and generally raise hell. A studio audience of testosterone-addled muscle-heads—joined by legions of avid viewers around the country—cheered and jeered as the chain-smoking Downey Jr. played to their basest instincts. Then, quite suddenly, the whole thing came crashing down, felled by a clumsy hoax that Downey Jr. himself perpetrated to garner ratings and publicity. Downey Jr. was disgraced, and died of lung cancer shortly thereafter. Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie chronicles the spectacular rise and fall of a remarkable television phenom, who, in the days before Fox News, practically invented the liberal-baiting television talk show. muCH aDo aBouT noTHing Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare’s comedy, is set in the present day, although the characters speak the original Elizabethan text. The movie has already been garnering rave advance reviews and international prizes. Some call it the best film of a Shakespeare comedy ever. Pretty cool! THe inTernsHip It seems like it’s been a while since Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson teamed up for some summertime yuks, so The Internship may at least be a welcome return. This time, these two slacker-wisecrackers play Joe McMahon and Nick Campbell, old-school

salesmen whose jobs have become obsolete now that everything has moved online. Trying to belatedly get with the program, Joe and Nick bluff their middle-aged way into internships at the flagship Internet company Google, where they join a crew of college-aged geeks. Much hilarity ensues as the paunchy Vince Vaughn and the drawling Owen Wilson interface with techsavvy brainiacs. syrup Here’s a satire that expects an audience to be shocked (shocked!) that consumers are gullible and susceptible to marketing, and that, moreover, manufacturers are wise to this human characteristic and use their knowledge to sell worthless crap to people. The worthless product in this case is a nasty, sugary drink—hence the title Syrup—and we follow the inner workings of a marketing firm (shades of Madmen?) where the foul-tasting drink is devised and the marketing plan is formulated. The fact that the makers of soft drinks are focused only on profits should not disillusion anyone, so one suspects that this film will have to go to darker territory if it wants to achieve credibility.

The Joys of June Gardening By jeanelle myers

The beginning of June! Although it started with a VERY hot day, the next day was sublime…coolish with a delightful breeze. After a tough week of gardening for others, I’m going to work in my own garden. There is a riot of crimson/ orange oriental poppies in the side garden interplanted with roses. I’m sure it’s Beauty of Livermere. I can’t think of another plant with this color. The huge papery, shimmering flowers bob in the breeze. Sometimes they need to be staked, but the flowers are so wonderful that I would almost just stand by them and hold them up myself if needed! They don’t last long enough for me and when the flowers are gone the leaves begin to go and soon are ready to be removed for the summer, only to reappear for a short time in the fall. I’ve heard that they can be cut when they begin to turn yellow and I will try that this year. They are interplanted with roses leaving the roses to shine on their own for the summer. And they self-seed! Papaver atlanticum, my very favorite poppy is beginning to bloom. It’s a small plant with soft apricot-colored flowers and if kept deadheaded, will bloom all summer and fall.

fter a trip to Long Island wine country, you may have a few extra bottles to store. Whether you’re a small-time collector or a fine wine connoisseur, North Fork Wine Cellar Designs has you covered. For the last eight years, Peter Cimino has been designing and installing custom wine cellars from Montauk to Manhattan. “For years, I worked out in the Hamptons putting in indoor swimming machines, and I was just looking for something else to get into,” he said. “I have a house up in Southold, and we belong to some of the wine clubs, so my niece suggested I get into wine cellars.” Wine collecting is a booming hobby, and Cimino’s clients are keeping him busy. “It goes two ways: it’s either a status-symbol that they’re looking for, or they are true wine collectors that are purchasing and aging wine for a longterm period,” he said. “If you’re somebody that has a collection, or plan on collecting wine and aging it for the long-term, then you need the proper environment, and that’s where building a wine cellar in your residence comes in.”

phase, Cimino has no problem working within the constraints of an existing structure. “If it’s a new house, then it could be almost unlimited, but not everybody has the space to put in a huge wine cellar,” Cimino said. “I put one in a 19-inch deep, 15-foot long, 10-foot high closet in downtown Tribeca last year, so it really depends on the spaces that are available to the client.” Along with private residences, Cimino also works with some restaurants as well.

Store Your Bottles In Custom Style

Chateau latour or Chateauneuf?

“I am working with a couple of restaurants right now in Nassau County,” he said. “But some of the higher-end restaurants have their own custom steelwork, and I don’t really have the capacity to do that.” Cimino’s wine cellars are all custom and are only limited by the client’s desires. “The only thing that determines what a person wants to do with a wine cellar, is the collection they have now or the collection they plan to have in the future,” he said.

Home wine cellars are essentially climatecontrolled rooms with racks designed to hold wine bottles. “Wine cellar refrigeration can be very basic, with what we call a through-the-wall unit, which looks like an air conditioning system; or we can go super high-end with a computer-controlled humidity and heat system that you can hook up to a computer,” Cimino said. In addition to refrigeration, North Fork Wine Cellar Designs also offers custom racking styles that range from classic wood or stone to more contemporary metal. “You can go any way you want, depending on how much you want to spend,” he explained. When it comes to designing the cellar, Cimino advises his clients to think big in the beginning. “I try to tell the clients that once you build a wine cellar, you tend to start collecting more wine. Some wines can be aged for 15, 20, or 25 years, so don’t think of what you have now—think of what you’ll end up with five years from now,” he said. “I haven’t had any, but there have been cases where customers have built wine cellars and then had to build a second one because they ran out of space.” Collecting wine can be a pricy endeavor, and a home wine cellar is certainly a luxury, but despite the down economy, Cimino hasn’t noticed any decline in business. “It seems like it has picked up, actually, over the last couple of years,” he noted. During that time, Cimino has had a chance to design and build some intricate and expansive wine cellars. “I did a 1,500 bottle custom distressedlacquer white oak one in Bridgehampton last year, with the computer-controlled refrigeration system,” he said. “And I’m doing one now, in Watermill, that’s somewhere between eight and nine thousand bottles.” Cimino’s smallest cellar held 500 bottles. “It really depends on how in-depth the client is in to collecting wine.” While it is definitely easier to create and install a wine cellar in a home that’s still in the design

Essential Tools For Your At-Home Projects By rOBert sfOrza


adjustable wrench

screwdrivers The two types of screwdrivers most commonly used are the standard (flat) and Phillips. Both types are made in various sizes and in several styles: straight, shank and offset. It is important to use the right width blade when installing or removing screws. Pliers Pliers come in several shapes and with several types of jaw action. Simple combination or slip joint pliers will do most jobs for which you need pliers. The slip joint allows the jaws to expand to grasp a larger-size work piece. Although the slip joint pliers may look similar to a wrench, pliers should never be used as a substitute for a wrench, as the nut or bolt head will be permanently deformed by the serrations in the plier jaws and the wrench will no longer

fit properly. needle-nose Pliers Needle-nose pliers are used for holding small, delicate work pieces in tight spots. They are available in both straight and bent nose types. Lineman’s pliers can be used for hard wire cutting and bending, before capping the wires. Some types have wirestripping grooves and insulated handles for comfort. Diagonal cutters are used only for wire cutting (these have a cavity between the two arms on one side and are curved on the back). Wrenches There are a large variety of wrenches that are made for different uses such as turning cap screws, bolts and nuts. The adjustable wrench, commonly called a crescent wrench, is a general-purpose tool and will not suit every job. (Continued on page 80)

here are few things that feel more empowering for the do-it-yourselfer than power tools. Whether you are a rookie do-it-yourselfer or a seasoned handyman with bigger plans—of perhaps flipping homes—or if you’ve just purchased your own handyman special home, the right tools will allow you to get the necessary work done quickly and efficiently. Hammers While they may look similar, not all hammers are the same. Head weights can range from a couple of ounces to a few pounds, handles can be made from a number of different materials and the faces may be smooth or textured. Some hammers, such as basic nail hammers, can be used for a wide range of jobs, while others, such as drywall hammers, are designed for more specific tasks. Sledgehammers are large and heavy and are designed for breaking up concrete and driving stakes, whereas trim hammers are smaller and are suited for more delicate tasks.

Pipe wrenches are used for what their name implies: holding and turning pipes. A Vise-grip wrench is more used for welding with their special jaws for various uses such as the C-clamp type. saws A cordless circular saw is a handy variation on the ordinary circular saw. It’s easier to use in tight or awkward situations than its corded counterpart. In addition, there’s no cord getting in your way or potentially throwing your cut out of line. The cordless version, however, tends to be less powerful than the standard corded circular saw, so for tough jobs and heavier lumber, go with the old standby—a good quality corded circular saw. A jigsaw is a great power tool for making custom cuts in plywood or other thin materials. Some convert to a powered handsaw for cutting heavier pieces of lumber.

A rotary saw is a relatively recent addition to the power tools arsenal. It is able to drill directly into material such as wood, laminate or drywall, and make freeform cuts in any direction. With the right bit, it can even be used to cut through marble. The reciprocating saw is a luxury item for most do-it-yourselfers, but indispensible for a true handyman. Nothing cuts through 2x4s or nails like a reciprocating saw, which are necessary for any demo job, and can also be used outdoors to trim tree branches or clear wood limbs and posts.

A Mail Order Home In The Heart of Sag Harbor By tamara mattHeWs-stePHensOn

When refurbishing the sunroom, Schwartz matched the doors and windows to the existing ones to blend with the current architecture. The new arched window offers fuller views of the family’s English garden. “I enjoy gardening and relaxing on my porch while reading Dan’s Papers,” says Jane Schwartz. Schwartz’s interior design business is based in New York, but she has managed projects in the Hamptons, the North Fork, Westchester County and Connecticut. Schwartz likes to work on old houses because she enjoys the classic architecture, as well as the good quality materials such as windows, moldings and floors. She likes to decorate with a classic framework, bringing in an eclectic mix of modern and antique pieces. Active in the design industry on the East End, this summer Schwartz is working on the Holiday House Hamptons committee.

T. Matthews-Stephenson

Having summered in the Hamptons for over 30 years with her husband Ken and their children, interior designer Jane Schwartz loves the small town atmosphere of Sag Harbor and the surrounding area. Throughout her children’s early years, the family relished the opportunity to ride bikes into town. Schwartz also appreciates the charm and wonderful quality to the older homes in the area. Ten years ago they settled into a home in North Haven that sits on a pretty acre of land. Built in 1924, this charming farmhouse is one of the original Sears Roebuck catalog homes, which were sold as kits by mail order throughout the years in the early– to mid–1900s. Schwartz is proud to own one of these historic American homes, and reminded me these houses were shipped by rail to city lots and farms around the country. There are many of these homes out on the East End of Long Island since Sears sold approximately 75,000 home kits in that period. This lovely summer cottage has an old fashioned front porch and fits perfectly with the family’s lifestyle, allowing them to walk to Sag Harbor or across the street to the beach. Their recent renovation has given the house even more charm, while allowing it to blend into the current architecture of the neighborhood in a seamless way.

specifications and materials, but not until 1916 did the company launch the first full kit for sale. The kit included the entire house, with numbered parts and a detailed instruction manual, and even the paint and nails. Although not the first company to create the mail-order home, Sears took the concept nationwide and expanded it to a large enterprise. During the “Roaring Twenties” Sears showed over 100 house models and a variety of summer cottages as well, many of which can be seen today on the East End. Schwartz’ Sears and Roebuck home was featured in last month’s issue of This Old House magazine. Examples of the additions are featured in the article “11 Ways to Give Your Home a Personal Stamp.” In the current (June) issue of This Old House the Schwartz’ front porch is featured on the cover. While keeping the integrity of the home in place, We Do Dan's FP As 9/11_We Do Dan's FP 9/16/11 12:33 PM Page 1 Schwartz made a few additions and renovations.

this charming family cottage has history

The Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalog had been around since 1888 when owner Richard Sears first mailed out a flyer advertising jewelry and watches. He soon began to sell other wares and even groceries. The mail order concept was well timed since it allowed products to be sent to hard-to-reach rural areas during the height of the railroad industry. Mail order was convenient for homeowners and soon mail order shopping became Americans’ most popular mode for buying products. The mail order catalog started to influence our interior design as well when in 1905 Sears featured wallpaper, fabric swatches and paint color sample books. From 1908 to 1940 the Sears catalog dedicated a Modern Home division selling building plans, supplies and home kits. The first home kit catalog contained 22 plans for homes of moderate size, and soon expanded to offer supply

Drywall tools Getting drywall up to the ceiling can be tough. You may have seen professionals or do-it-yourselfers hold it up to the ceiling with their heads. This works, but does require some coordination and can be kind of awkward. You can rent or buy a rig called a drywall lift. The lift works by loading a sheet on it and raising it up to the ceiling. It holds the sheet in place while you nail or screw it to the joists. A screw gun works best for drywall screws. You may wish to use a special electric screw gun that allows you to adjust it to sink the screws a little below the surface, remember too much will break the paper. A regular screw gun does not have that control. There are several more tools involved for “taping” drywall, but we’ll tackle that in the near future. sanding tools Palm sanders are ideal for sanding flat surfaces in a small amount of time. Random orbital sanders are used for some of the same jobs as palm sanders. The spinning surface will slow down as increasing pressure is applied to the sander, which helps reduce the chances of oversanding more delicate pieces. Remember, if you’re flipping houses, you want to sell the houses quickly, so facades and fine details are key.

in nearly every workshop is the cordless drill. Not only is it used for drilling holes in wood, masonry, drywall or other materials, using a variety of bits can also be outfitted with a number adapters, such as screwdriver attachments, hole saws and steel-brush paint removers. Some cordless drills have a removable chuck that, when removed, reveals a quarterinch driver that can accept sockets. A cordless drill is fine for everyday use, but a drill press is better suited for jobs that require precise drilling. The drill is mounted to a stationary base and is limited to straight, precisely aligned movement.

Sleep Blissfully In Organic Bedding By rOBert sfOrza

Are you sure you want to quit your job and open up your own store?” That question may have followed Beth Lee Toto-Schlendorf around recently. But a month into her new job, as well as her new life, there are no reservations or doubts about her new career. Bliss Sleep Center, an all organic mattress and bedding shop, opened its doors for the first time last May 2, making Toto-Schlendorf an official shop owner. The service-centered shop in Water Mill is the fruition of a life-long dream; however, even TotoSchlendorf didn’t always realize she was destined to be in mattresses. For over a decade, Toto-Schlendorf worked in the banking world, personally helping people financially plan their future. She worked for 11 years at CitiBank in Hampton Bays, building the branch from the ground up, in addition to working at two separate Astoria branches. And although it was never meant as a life-long career, the job did come with the bonus of getting some private motivation and honing some vital business skills.

chemicals. The majority of mattress manufacturers refuse to disclose the chemicals that are used in making mattresses, and Toto-Schlendorf does not bring in mattresses and bedding accessories that she has not extensively researched. Bliss Sleep Center even offers a diverse selection of organic dog beds as well. The store’s mission is to provide the utmost in customer satisfaction, where happy customers’ word-of-mouth, proper networking and the quality of products will create a positive mantra for the stores all across the East End. What are some advantages of organic bedding? Organic cotton or wool is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility by excluding the use of toxic pesticides and fertilizers, while building a biologically diverse

agriculture Both organic cotton and latex foam are hypoallergenic. Also, organic materials absorb moisture from our bodies in a more efficient way than polyester products. Besides the health benefits that you will enjoy from your organic sheets, there are other environmental advantages of organic bedding, including supporting the organic farming industry. This encourages agricultural methods that do not harm the environment. “I am excited about the vision of the store,” says Toto-Schlendorf. “My goal is to open two more stores in next few years…but we’ll grow into it.” Visit Bliss Sleep Center at 103 Hayground Road in Water Mill.

“Two years ago I had no idea—no clue—about indoor air quality… and just how many harmful chemicals are on your mattress,” says TotoSchlendorf when revealing why she entered into this business. Nowadays, so many of us have made a commitment to eat organic foods, so why would we sleep on anything else? But terms like natural, pure or ecofriendly are misleading, because the product may not be organic. It’s difficult for green-minded consumers to distinguish what truly is “organic.” And this is where Toto-Schlendorf’s adventure began. Over a year and a half ago, she and her husband purchased a new memory foam mattress only soon realize how many toxic chemicals they were sleeping on. “I, then, spent the following year or so researching and reading up on mattress and bedding products,” says Toto-Schlendorf. “But what I learned soon became a passion to educating other people… “It has been my dream to open my own store—not a mattress store at first—but I became passionate about this… and felt this was the right thing to do.” The store she dreamed of would be a combination of new and old—a neighborhood store with customer service, showcasing products that are of the highest quality, with function and design that you can’t find in the traditional chain or department store. It would be a place for all looking for a good night’s sleep in an area that lacks organic options. In recent decades, most mattresses have been made either with metal springs sandwiched between layers of polyurethane foam, or with just foam. Most of the chemicals in these mattresses are there to act as a retardant to fire, but many contain over 40 various types of toxic chemicals. Mattress and bedding accessories sold at Bliss Sleep Center only use 100% organic wool, because it acts as a natural fire retardant without the harsh

Outdoor Living Areas With Dodds & Eder


ummer means spending as much time as possible outdoors, and that includes the time you spend at your home. Creating an outdoor room or living space has become one of the East End’s top design trends, and determining what outdoor furnishings and other accessories to work with has become as important a process as designing a bedroom, kitchen or living room. Outdoor spaces are like an extension of your home—enjoy furnishing it with the same attention to detail as you would any other living space. Do you go with teak or cast iron? Umbrellas or pure sunshine? A Hatteras Hammock or an Adirondack chair…or both? Yes, it can be challenging to find the best products, but figuring out how to arrange them to fit your needs and tastes can be equally daunting.

We asked Dotti Simon, President of Retail Sales at Dodd’s & Eder—landscape design and outdoor furniture experts—for some advice on how to plan your outdoor living area, so you can then get the most out of enjoying it. Dodds & Eder was founded in 1897 to sell gardening and farming supplies to the estates on Long Island’s Gold Coast, and they have since expanded to serve all of the East End’s outdoor needs, offering landscape development, outdoor furniture, a garden shoppe and home décor. Since everyone has individual tastes and spaces to work with, there is no one-size-fits-all approach, and Dodds & Eder’s Casual Furniture Design Team assists in creating that perfect alfresco space. “The best way to find out what makes sense for your home is to get one-on-one help,” Simon says. “When we have a client that comes in, we always ask them to define how they want to use their

outdoor space.” “People don’t look at their outdoors like they used to,” Simon continues. “Years ago it was all about dining, but today people are looking to relax and really enjoy and entertain outside. We’re seeing people using their outdoor spaces as lounging and living-room type areas.” If you want to make your outdoor space truly special this summer, Simon reveals that fire pits are hot, hot, hot. “Fire has become a big category. Outdoor fire pits and patio heaters are becoming very popular, so that people can extend the time they spend outdoors as much as possible.” Which, we all know, is what the season is all about.

Reel In Some Real Fish By geOrge HOlzman III


une will be a great month for fishing. As we all know, different fish are around during different months of the year. The month of June offers several different types of fish to catch on the East End. These include: dover sole, wild bass, mackerel, sardines, lemon sole, grey mullet, brill and turbot. The most popular of these are the sardines, sole and bass. Your local restaurants are sure to have bass dinner specials. You can also pick up bass from your local seafood market. They can be a little expensive but it’s well worth treating yourself.

we on Long island are very fortunate to have so many great spots to go fishing, no matter what town we’re in. Sole, which is very similar to flounder, is a part of the flatfish family. People usually bake these and lightly bread them with either your standard breadcrumbs or even pancake batter. I’ve heard that panko works great as well. The best bait to catch both sole and flounder is squid. You can buy them in frozen packets for around $12 or fresh at seafood markets. All you have to do is put it on your hook and then wait. I recently spoke to Captain Brad Ries from Someday Came Fishing Charters to see how it’s going in the local fishing world. We on Long Island are very fortunate to have so many great spots to go fishing, no matter what town

we’re in. I asked Ries about the company. “We are based in Hampton Bays and fish the inshore waters of Shinnecock Bay and the offshore grounds for shark and tuna.” “We have a great bay fishery which allows us to target fluke (summer flounder), striped bass and bluefish. As far as the oceans go we do target striped bass, fluke, bluefish, black sea bass and blackfish, these species are typically caught no more then two miles off the beach.” What about the bigger catches, like shark and tuna? “As far as shark and tuna, shark grounds start at the 15-mile mark and could go as far as 35 miles. Tuna fishing starts at the 40-fathom curve and continues farther to the canyons.” There will also always be the seafood that’s available all year round too, which a deeper shade of lemon sole include salmon, tuna, clams and oysters. So now you know what’s out there and where to that supply everything that’s needed. This includes Someday Came Fishing Charters. Ries noted, “As far go. But what do you need to fish successfully? To catch sole and other light fish you can just use as equipment...we provide all except food and drink. your standard rod from department stores. For bait So, long before the departure we know how many you can either buy things like bloodworms, squid or anglers will be aboard and what we will be targeting shiners. If you dig in the sand a little you’ll find some for that trip. So all bait, tackle, ice, rods and rigs will worms or clams that will work just fine too. But for be all set and ready to go. At least that’s how it is on the tunas and bigger fish you will want to go to a my boat!” There’s nothing like having a cold beverage, store that specializes in fishing equipment. That’s where you get the stuff that will last a lifetime and breathing in the fresh salty air and relaxing with can take a beating. Rods, reels, lures, they’ll have good company while catching a monster on your it all. They offer different price ranges and different line. quality.

own idiosyncrasies. For example, if you’re looking to remove brush from your property, Sag Harbor and Westhampton won’t accept it. Hampton Bays accepts larger bulk and construction items, but no concrete or asphalt. A few interesting points that I’ve learned from reading the handy online recycling guides: Styrofoam can be put in household waste since it is difficult to recycle (I no longer feel solely responsible for mountains of Styrofoam cups sitting atop landfills without decay), bottle caps are not recyclable and recycling really isn’t that hard. A few extra seconds placing your Diet Coke can in a bin separate from your newspapers seem like a small price to pay for keeping the East End clean, healthy, and beautiful. And, for the record, no, your iced coffee cup (grade #5 plastic) cannot be recycled with other (#1 and #2 grade) plastics.

e all pride ourselves on the beauty of the East End. It’s why we’re all here, isn’t it? The beaches, the farms, the air, the inexplicable, sought-after light that bathes them all? As we mosey down our streets and stretches of sand, the beauty sometimes catches us by surprise; we lose our breath, pausing for a moment to take in the stunning scene that has inspired artists for decades, and we devote not a single thought to the less picturesque side of the East End, the less picturesque side of life in general: garbage. So, let’s talk recycling. We push it from our minds, we hide it from our eyes, yet it remains, silently bulging at the margins of society to which we have confined it. Perhaps it wouldn’t be so foreboding if we handle the messes that we create, but it seems that we conveniently ignore the ugly, un-Hamptons parts of life—a tragic human flaw—even as they threaten the beauty that we cherish. Maybe that it threatens our unblemished vacation lives is both why it must be discussed and why it is ignored. Thankfully, the East End has a free cure for that.

case, they should be brought to retailers who sell batteries, like Best Buy or Home Depot. Household light bulbs can also be brought to Lowe’s or Home Depot for disposal, although I suggest calling ahead to make sure your store will accept them. The Riverhead Home Depot, for example, offers a box for light bulb recycling right as you enter their door. If you don’t feel like trekking to Riverhead to get rid of your hazardous waste (light bulbs qualify because they contain mercury), Southampton Town has a program called STOP that has a few—limited— dates of hazardous waste collection. Items like pool chemicals, oil-based paint, household cleaners, car fluids, and stains qualify as hazardous and should be stored until the predetermined STOP dates. For less dangerous waste, like bottle plastics and newspaper and cans, the recycling is fairly selfexplanatory, although each recycling center has its

recycling is easy!

Southampton Town neatly packages waste in little Green Bags on the hillside, little Green Bags made of ticky-tacky—and they all look just the same. Literally. The Town requires residents to dispose of all unrecyclable waste in plastic “Green Bags” labeled, “Town of Southampton,” which can be purchased at various retailers throughout the Town—that is, if residents do not already use a commercial carter or prefer to self-haul their trash to the recycling center. All other materials must be self-sorted and placed in the proper receptacles at the recycling center. People who don’t recycle religiously—myself included—assume that recycling is a complicated, confusing, time-consuming business. What goes where, what’s a number two plastic?, my iced coffee cup counts as a plastic, right?…We shouldn’t need an Environmental Science degree to throw stuff away “properly.” Good thing we don’t. Southampton and East Hampton Recycling Centers offer brief, useful guides on their websites for what can, can’t and should be recycled, and where. Here’s a summary: Household batteries can be lumped in with your other household waste, no recycling necessary, unless you are looking to dispose of your car, hearing aid, watch or computer battery. In that

Make a Summer Splash By geOrge HOlzman III


ong before my family got a pool when I was in elementary school, we used to go to Splish Splash at least twice a month every summer. We loved it. There are rides and other exciting things to do there for all ages. We used to go with my aunt and cousin from East Hampton. Our favorite ride was the Lazy River. The Lazy River is a nice, relaxing ride that goes through the park at a very slow pace, hence the name Lazy River. There are small showers throughout the ride to keep you nice and cool in the sweltering heat. I recently spoke with a friend of mine who is an up and coming comedian currently residing in Philadelphia, named Daniel Vetrano. Vetrano spent several summers working for Splish Splash and provided some interesting facts and stories about

the water park that might be useful for those looking for summer employment at the park, or if you are just looking to spend a day there. “Working at Splish Splash was extremely fun and the benefits were unconventional and fantastic. If it was hot out you could jump in a pool before you started your shift. There was also weekly training that all lifeguards needed to attend, so we wouldn’t forget our life-saving techniques. However, these weekly training sessions often included games, prizes, food, etc. It culminated in something called the ‘Lifeguard Olympics,’ which was a bunch of awesome games involving most of the rides throughout the park. Everyone always had a great time; it didn’t really feel like work at all. “Working at Splish Splash ruled! When you were done working at the top of a ride, you could ride the slide down. I was a lifeguard and troubleshooter.

SeniorCare Companions, Inc.

Season passes are available for parents who want to save money and for kids who want to go again and again. Troubleshooter meant that I was the one who would ride all the rides in the morning to test them. I had 45 minutes to ride every slide that they turned on in the morning, making sure that everything was safe and running properly. I worked there for three summers while in junior high and high school.” There is a new ride that opened this year, called Bootleggers. This is the first ride in the state of New York that is a hydro-magnetic water coaster. It goes up to speeds of 30 miles per hour and includes drops that are up to forty feet. The ride also covers about two whole acres of land and last a total of two minutes.

Splish Splash offers rides and slides that are very kid-friendly. The ones that are geared towards children include the Pirates Cove, Octopus Pool, Elephant Slide and Monsoon Lagoon. Visiting these rides is a good way to get your kid out of the house and to stay active. Season passes are available for parents who want to save money and for kids that want to go again and again. Rides aren’t the only attractions at Splish Splash. A variety of shows are performed in the park everyday such as the 2012 Fowlympics. This show includes the best parrot-athletes from all around the world. There are well over a dozen events that the feathered competitors take part in hopes of winning the gold, and the show is scheduled to take place a total of four times a day, the earliest being 11 a.m. and the latest being 5 p.m. With the different times, you’re still able to visit the whole park without missing anything. There are several gift shops and places to eat scattered around the park for folks to build up an appetite while enjoying the rides and viewing other attractions. Maybe you’re craving the classics like hotdogs and hamburgers, if that’s the case then stop in at Johnny Rockets. Their homemade shakes are a big favorite among guests of the park. If you don’t want to sit around at the park and are on the go you can pay a visit to the Last Chance Grill. This is great if you want something fast. They offer BBQ chicken sandwiches, chicken wings and even sausage and peppers. Splish Splash provides many different fun activities for all types of people. Whether you’re a child visiting for the very first time or for older guests that are still young at heart, you’ll be sure to have a great and memorable summer day!

Meet Star Chef Starr Boggs

Try the new rosé,” coos the rep in the lace dress from Wölffer Estate Vineyards. Starr Boggs stands tall behind the long bar of his restaurant as he sniffs and swirls and sips the crystal tumbler of pink-hued wine. “Nice!” he enthuses, as the rep pours four more samples at 10 a.m. on a sunny Friday morning. “An owner’s work is never done,” he says with a straight face. Known for three decades as a high end, high-class eatery in Westhampton Beach, Starr Boggs—yes that is his real Irish Welsh family name—is at his namesake restaurant at 7 a.m. daily to get that work done. “I grew up on a 1,000-acre farm in Virginia,” he says. “We grew, raised and fished for everything we ate. That instilled a real passion in me for local sourcing and I continue that tradition.” Starr was on a path to be a football player at William and Mary College in Williamsburg, VA when a knee injury ended that goal. Returning to his love of cooking, he first landed in Florida for six months then was offered a job at The Inn at Quogue in 1981. He stayed there for several years, finally striking out on his own in 1986 with his first restaurant. He has now been in business for almost 30 years. “I think the reason we’ve done so well is we care,” he says. That care is evident in every facet of the restaurant, from the elegant rooms with dark woods, white walls and blue ceilings, to the small fortune

of Warhol silkscreen prints that line the walls. From proudly. “I think that’s key to the quality.” The specialty menu from the night before had at Greta Garbo to Judy Garland to Ingrid Bergman, the gorgeous gang is all here. The interior’s pull handles least three unusual fish on there—Blowfish, Tautog are shaped liked starfish, a large metal sculpture and Weakfish. “I like to have something different,” Starr explains. “The blowfish is also called ‘puffer,’ version of his star logo hangs above the back bar. it’s seriously good and not the poisonous Also at the bar there are photos of kind that they serve on a dare in Japan! Starr with his buddies at the Kentucky Weakfish gets it’s orangey color from Derby—he owns part of a horse named what it feeds on, like some mussels do. Bogey Boggs that ran in the Derby a I remember having it a lot as a kid in few years back. He spends much of Delaware. Our loyal diners will order it, his off time at the training track in we sold out of all we had last night.” Kentucky, and hosts an annual Derby “Eastern Long Island is a very special viewing party at the restaurant.

From Italy to the Farmer’s Market By silvia lehrer

When I traveled to Italy through the ’80s and into the ’90s to visit a colleague’s cooking school in Florence, I tried to reproduce the food I ate there. I quickly realized that it would be difficult because the recipes depended so much on the raw ingredients. Fresh produce was not locally available at the time, unless one lived in a farming community. Since then farmers markets have sprouted up on city streets and in town squares across the nation. The fruits and vegetables that are available have been planted, grown and harvested with only freshness and flavor in mind—not shelf life or shipping schedules. Here on the East End we live in a farming community with a whole range of fresh ingredients. Picking up what’s locally available and cooking it simply brings out the entire food experience. It engages your senses and enriches your life. When I pick up my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) order at the Green Thumb, an organic market in Water Mill, or visit some of the other local farm stands I’m making a connection with the farmers and, in a way, making it a partnership. By choosing locally grown products we support our agriculture and our environment. My most recent selection at the Green Thumb yielded kale raab (kale that sprouts and is similar to purple sprouted broccoli or broccolini), also asparagus and zucchini. Inspiration took me directly into the kitchen to prepare the kale raab. This early spring vegetable has a slight bitterness but delicious blanched and sautéed. I prepared a risotto

asparagus, creamy with red onion and tomato, and simply sautéed the zucchini in olive oil with garlic and parsley. How well we ate with some goodies waiting in the wings. Kale raaB Kale raab is simply kale that has sprouted and is similar in appearance to purple sprouting broccoli or broccolini.

1. Cut the thick base stems of the kale and discard. Rinse vegetable thoroughly. 2. Place kale in boiling salted water to cover, cover pan then remove lid when steam starts to escape. Blanch for 1 1/2 minutes uncovered until barely tender. Drain in a colander under a spray of cool water to stop the cooking; then transfer to a clean kitchen towel and pat dry. Can be cooked ahead to this point and refrigerated in a suitable container. 3. When ready to serve, warm olive oil in non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and hot pepper flakes, sauté garlic for 30 to 40 seconds. Put in the kale and stir-sauté several times for 2 to 3 minutes to finish cooking and to heat through. Season the vegetable with salt and freshly ground pepper,

Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Hits the Hamptons By cameron costa

ast End summers are about sun, sanctuary… and sorbet? Technically, it’s frozen fruit, and it arrives on the scene each summer ready for a few months under the Long Island sun. Fresh and simple—Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit embodies the antidote that we the fatigued, the caffeineaddicted, and the stressed seek in our getaways to the Hamptons: refreshment. Three years ago, founder Chloe Epstein, former New York City Assistant District Attorney, gave up on the ubiquitous froyo stores we all love in pursuit of a lighter, healthier option. The product is a new sort of soft serve—minus the syrups, chemicals and dairy. Just fruit. Like the enterprise’s original name, Simply Peeled, the company began as an attempt to create a simple, natural treat. Chloe teamed up with husband Jason and triathlete and friend Michael Sloan to create the treat that caters to the healthy and the sweet-toothed. What they came up with was a hit; a year after they opened the flagship store in Union Square, they hitched a ride on the ever-bustling health bandwagon on its annual trek to the East End of Long Island. Two years later, Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit has made a home here, where they serve East Enders and vacationing Manhattanites alike. Beginning at the Hampton Coffee Company in Water Mill, the trio expanded their serving locations to include the Golden Pear cafes in East Hampton, Southampton, Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor. There is a full selection of pops and soft serve fruit at Hampton Coffee Company and at Golden Pear Sag Harbor. The other Golden Pear Cafes currently offer just the pops. Reinventing a historic summer snack, taking it back to the basics, integrating

tradition with modernity—sounds perfect for the Hamptons. As I chatted with Chloe’s Water Mill Director of Operations Jonathan Weizmann, he revealed that the company keeps their fruit ingredients as fresh as possible, using only the highest quality fruit. When your product contains only “fruit, filtered water, and a touch of organic cane sugar,” it’s clearly important to keep the main—and basically the only—ingredient fresh. They don’t serve just fruit, however; with flavors like plum tangerine, blood orange, banana, and dark chocolate and over 24 tasty toppings, foodies can find treats for any time of day and any craving—without devastating our Hampton-ready beach bodies. Weighing in at less than 90 calories per 3.5 ounce serving, these sweet snacks are well-suited for the East End atmosphere: bikini-proof, Soul Cycle friendly, gluten and dairy free. I tried their recommended Fruittastic combination,

which was satisfyingly sweet and refreshing, with a sorbet-like consistency. However, Chloe’s touts a banana and dark chocolate mixture that sounds like the perfect dessert after a long, trying day at the beach—or by the pool, on the golf course, or shopping. You can get breakfast (or any time of day) smoothies or sundaes, and you can invent your own combinations of fruit, toppings and treats. The Union Square store is the trio’s largest location for their frozen fruit business, one that has blossomed into a delivering, year-round soft serve fruit server. City dwellers loved it, so they tried their luck out here, where we welcome summer popups and tasty, healthy treats. Turns out, we like it, too. The Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Water Mill location at Hampton Coffee Company on Montauk Highway is open Thursday through Sunday, through June 24, then seven days a week through September.

Restaurant Review: Driver’s Seat


t’s no small feat to earn the nickname “Southampton’s Meeting Place.” But if a restaurant in the area deserved it, it’s the Driver’s Seat. Attracting casual Hamptons diners, the wellheeled, sports enthusiasts and those looking for a fun night out, the establishment is housed in a building that dates back to 1888. And, much like the ambiance of the Hamptons in general, its aesthetics pay tribute to the marriage of old and new. The front of the Driver’s Seat was renovated in 2009, and what used to eschew a certain dark, divebaresque atmosphere is now light and airy. The chic, minimalist tables by the window add a touch of modernism without letting the Driver’s Seat stray far from its roots. At its heart, it’s a classic American dining establishment, where the menu changes twice daily, offering an ample sampling of appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, seafood and fresh-off-thegrill fare.

Luckily, the creamy Lobster Bisque did not disappoint after the baked clam casserole’s showing. On that note, the burgers are a must-try. I brought out-of-town friends back for dinner over our particularly chilly Memorial Day Weekend, and they all raved about the classic, no nonsense burgers, which come with all the fixins’—lettuce, tomato, pickle and golden, crispy fries. No wonder—the eight-ounce burger is made from 100% grade A beef,

ground fresh daily. (For the more healthconscious, Driver’s Seat also has a grilled marinated chicken burger, a low carb high protein burger player and a veggie burger.) Warm and homey, The Driver’s Seat provided the perfect atmosphere for a cold night. And now that the warm weather has arrived to stay, the outside bar and patio, which is one of the largest in the village, are sure to provide additional flair to a summer evening. In addition to its large selection of beers on tap and by the bottle, The Driver’s Seat serves a variety of blender drinks for when you’re craving that Caribbean atmosphere. Back inside, large windows open to the seating on the enjoy casual dining at the driver’s seat front porch area, particularly popular with the side, allowing us ladies to personally douse the guests hoping to people-watch on Jobs Lane.

Bargains on the East End.

Love or List Your Hamptons Home By kelly ann krieger


omeowners have to make serious decisions when it comes to home improvements. While some may decide it’s better to upgrade to a newer home, others may see the potential in their current property and reach for the stars by remodeling or expanding. There are pros and cons for each, but it all boils down to one thing: what is the best choice for your family? If you already live in the best neighborhood with great schools, then it seems like a “no-brainer.” However, if you love your home, but not the area, then it may be time for a change. I have to admit I really enjoy watching HGTV’s Love It or List It—I’m hooked! If you haven’t tuned in yet and you’re contemplating selling your home or making improvements to your existing property, grab your remote and change the channel—you won’t be disappointed.

cost-effective choice. Use dependable contractors and stay involved in each stage of the project. The same advice holds true for choosing the appropriate realtor. Trust is crucial in both scenarios. A monetary return on any home investment depends on the value of your home, which may be based on the location in which you live. Studies have shown that most key home improvements, like siding, roofing or plumbing (to name a few) will more than likely help hold, or possibly improve, the value of your home. Basic maintenance on a property is always an important selling point. Remodeling a kitchen or bath is also a worthy investment. Granite

countertops, luxury appliances, fine cabinetry and finishing work (detailed moldings) all increase the appeal and value of a home. Here on the East End, we have a plethora of amazing builders, architects, designers and craftsman if you’re seeking to remodel or improve your home. For those of you interested in selling or buying a property, we also have some of the best real estate firms in the world. The choice is yours: Are you going to Love It or List It? For a full listing of local builders, designers, realtors, plumbers, electricians, etc., please pick of a copy of Dan’s List or visit

The show offers a realtor’s perspective on one end of the spectrum versus the home improvement aspect at the other end. The stage is set and all possibilities are explored and carefully reviewed after the homeowner gives the designer/home improvement team a set budget to be used for remodeling and quick fixes, while the realtor searches for the clients’ “dream home.” In the end, after each has worked their “magic,” it’s up to the homeowner to make the final call, and no matter what the decision, it’s a “win-win” situation. The home improvements made by the design team add value to the listing price, and the realtor perhaps may have just found a home that supersedes their expectations. In many cases, the scale is equal and it’s not an easy choice, especially if there is an emotional attachment, but the show always ends on a happy note and it’s always a choice that satisfies all parties involved. If you and your family find yourself at this very same crossroads, here are a few tips and considerations to keep in mind. 1. Spend your money wisely! Make a list of everything you don’t like about your home and things you would like to improve, a wish list. Next, make a list of everything that needs to be improved on your home, like plumbing, roofing, electrical, heating (basically, all the things that can be costly, but a necessary part of maintaining the longevity and safety of the property). 2. Know the value of your home. Research the area and find out what the average home is selling for. This will provide insight as to whether or not you should invest in major home improvements or look for a better location that will provide a secure long-term investment. 3. Do your homework—If you decide to move ahead with home improvements or renovations, make it a
