Southampton Village is supporting a plan to provide a ferry service across Lake Agawam from a floating dock to the west of Lake Agawam Park by Monument Square to a pier at the southern end of the lake where people would be able to walk from that ferry slip across a street and to the beach at the end of Gin Lane just to the end of the Southampton Bathing Corporation. As time goes by there are more and more ways to get around the Hamptons without a car. There’s electric shuttle carts in the downtowns, launches out to the boats in Sag Harbor, county busses, bike lanes, they’re even talking “scoot” trains on the railroads. Call us the Nifty Hamptons -- DR 5.

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

The H amptons Subway Newsletter By DAN RATTINeR

Week of August 5–11, 2013 Riders this past week: 13,825 Rider miles this past week: 121,912 DOWN IN THE TUBE Several celebrities were seen riding the Hamptons Subway trains this week. They included Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, Jon Stewart, Hugh Grant, Bill O’Reilly and Jason Kidd. Also seen riding the subway was our gracious Mayor of Southampton Village Mark Epley, between Amagansett and East Hampton. What were you doing out of your jurisdiction, sir? JOB OPENINGS Two of our seven celebrity spotters riding the trains looking for celebs to report on will be going back to college next week. People wishing to intern for the final three weeks of the summer should contact our personnel department located at our main office in Hampton Bays. Bring references and a resumé. The job is noon to 8 p.m. Thursday-Monday (including Sunday.)

DELAYS The J Train Express will not be stopping at the Bridgehampton stop between 7 and 11 p.m. next Thursday. Track maintenance is the reason. We are sorry for the inconvenience. CHINESE ACROBATS After the successful debut of our cultural program at which the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra performed the famous Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” on the Southampton platform Saturday evening two weeks ago, our Subway Commissioner has ordered the rest of this summer’s cultural program to proceed. The famous Chunking Chinese High Flier Trapeze Troop #5 will appear on our Southampton platform on Saturday August 17 at 7 p.m. However, there’s a problem. Unlike the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, which was able to perform on the platform, with a pathway where busy straphangers could go around them to get on the trains (except for when the cannon was fired, of course,) the 37 acrobats in this Chinese troupe need to get a running start from a quarter mile away, along the narrow maintenance walkways that line the

sides of the subway tunnels at each end, which, even though there’s a railing, will require that, for safety reasons according to Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) rules, the trains cannot run during the 45 minutes this act is underway. It’s hoped, however that something can be worked out. The acrobats have come such a long, long way. SUBWAY TOKEN DISCOUNTS ENDING Since Hamptons Subway opened all those years ago, local residents who can provide proof of residency receive a 40% discount on all subway swipe card purchases. Last week, however, it was announced that this program would be discontinued. We here at the Newsletter and elsewhere working for Hamptons Subway are deeply grieved at this decision. We wonder why it is so. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE Employees at Hamptons Subway and elsewhere in the Hamptons are entitled to an explanation about why we are discontinuing this discount program. Here it is. The Hamptons has changed. The balance has shifted. The Hamptons are no longer Bumpkinville. We are now a worldclass resort. And so, we have decided that the discount purchases will continue, but they will now be given to celebrities, and the money lost in giving celebrities discounts will have to be made up by taking away the discounts previously offered to locals. I hope that explains things. Celebrities may register at any token booth by presenting their Wikipedia biographies, in printed form to the attendee there for consideration in this program.

NOT COCA-COLA A driver in Montauk was arrested last week after he was found to be high on cocaine and cocaine was found inside his vehicle. Police responded after a call came in that a man appeared drunk behind the wheel. Cops approached a car sitting parked with its reverse lights and brake lights on, and found the driver passed out behind the wheel, under the influence of cocaine and alcohol, and babbling to himself. NOT DEREK JETER A man who was blocked into a parking spot by a tour bus and was unable to get out became so angry at the bus driver that he pulled a baseball bat from his car and started to curse at the driver. Police were called and the fight was broken up. No homeruns were hit, no runners were left on base, but an arrest was made.

BAD HOUSECLEANER A housecleaner in Westhampton was arrested after after forging checks that her clients would leave her after she completed her work. The scam came to light when the woman attempted to add a few zeros to the checks that were written out to her and went to cash them. The scam was foiled when, well, the homeowners noticed they were paying the cleaning lady more than they remembered leaving her.

SHELTER ISLAND Old Man McGumbus—104 years old, current Grand Almighty Ruler for the Shelter Island Shark-Bear-Hawk Society, current World Record holder for most marriages and divorces in a single lifetime, Head Coach for the Shelter Island Rugby club and former World War II fighter pilot—was arrested last week for inciting a riot. The old man organized the largest protest in SI history on the corners of Pigs and Whistle Lane and West Honey Pot Avenue against the gluten-free diet, or “Satan’s diet.” McGumbus appeared intoxicated with rage, holding a pizza and screaming through a bullhorn. A crowd formed, which turned into a keg party. McGumbus, upset that nobody was listening to him and that half of the partygoers were glutenfree fanatics, punched a man, who tried hitting back but punched another man instead. Since most male tourists on Shelter Island can’t fight, the poorly landed punches created a domino effect, starting a riot. McGumbus was arrested at 3 a.m., in his underwear, eating pizza. BOLOGNA A Southampton man reported a bologna sandwich was thrown at him while he was walking. The report is highly suspicious considering that nobody in the Hamptons eats bologna sandwiches.

Radio Station Vandalized? Doings in Fairfield, Connecticut Affect a Listener on Eastern Long Island By DAN RATTINeR


think I witnessed a radio station being vandalized on Sunday morning. It was 7:32 a.m., and I had been listening to one of my favorite programs on FM radio, which is a weekly show called StoryCorps. This is a pre-recorded show where actors and other celebrities read very excellent short stories to the listeners for one hour. It starts at 7 a.m. It’s pre-recorded. The stories are actually read before a live audience at Symphony Space on Manhattan’s west side. Usually there are two or three of them during the hour. There’s often laughter and lots of applause. Just before 7:32 a.m., a reader had completed the first story, which was about the goings on in the mind of a high-priced Manhattan dog walker as he takes Sir Henry and Blackie on their appointed rounds on the Upper East Side. Sir Henry is a dachshund. Blackie is a poodle. They encounter a woman who hates dogs. They encounter an old man in a wheelchair. After the applause, the moderator began interviewing the author of this story, Lydia Millet, who had been at Symphony Space to hear her story being read. Had she known someone who had a dog named Sir Henry? Did she have a dog herself? At that moment, before the author could answer, the program suddenly was something else,

and now, without any introduction, we were listening to the story of a love affair, as told by two actors, one the man and the other a woman, who were Tweeting each other in anticipation of meeting somewhere. You don’t seem a Sagittarius. Laughter. This, of course, was very disconcerting. What happened to the dog lady? And then, quite suddenly, the station went off the air. It stayed that way for about 15 seconds, at which time another bit of StoryCorps came on, this time another bit of an interview with an author whose story had just apparently been read, who was now defending himself to the moderator about something she had just asked him. “Why did I move to Ireland? Well, it was because the libraries in America banned my books, not only the erotic ones, but also my children’s books. I couldn’t have that. What was the point?” “I can understand that,” the narrator said. And then, once again, the station signal went out. This time, it stayed out for more than a minute. I had been listening, beginning at 7 a.m., in bed. So after the minute, figuring that was it, I got up and went into the bathroom and started brushing my teeth. And then the radio station came back on. It said only two words, “…voluptuous body…” and then it was back off the air again. And it (Cont’d on next page)

Radio (Continued from previous page) stayed off. Anybody who was trying to tune to 89.9 FM at that time got nothing. It was as if the station was not there. I should mention at this point that 89.9 is a station that broadcasts from Fairfield, Connecticut. As you know, most FM radio signals are only good for about 50 miles, so here in the Hamptons, we don’t get any FM from New York City. We get three public stations, two of which are from Connecticut, so we get all the interesting news of that state. If you are a regular Hamptons FM radio listener like me, then you know that Jodi Rell was a really good governor of Connecticut for the one-anda-half terms she served. She was a little-know lieutenant governor and she got appointed when John Roland resigned during a corruption investigation. I wished she had run for a second full term of her own, but I guess she had had enough. There is a third station. This is Peconic Public Radio at 88.9 FM, an independent station based in Southampton. I sometimes listen to that, too. But they don’t get StoryCorps. And they don’t get Jodi Rell, either. Anyway, my wife slept through all of this. She’s a heavy sleeper and I listen to StoryCorps with the radio on soft. It ends at 8 a.m. She stirs. Ten minutes later, we start our day. Anyway, at this point, in the bathroom, I now washed my face and shaved and tried to consider what was going on in the 89.9 studio in Fairfield, Connecticut. Here’s what I finally decided happened:

Anybody who was trying to tune to 89.9 FM at that time got nothing. It was as if that station was not there. Broadcasting a pre-recorded show at 7 a.m. is a not very satisfying job. When I was in college, I worked at a radio station. Being there at 7 a.m. Sunday morning is awful. At that hour, you only need one person there, someone to press the button to go from one recording to another. There’s not even anybody else there to talk to at that hour. In my imagination, this person had, on the prior Friday when the boss was in asked, considering the odd weekend hours he had to work, for a raise. The boss turned him down. He—in my mind, it was a he—wasn’t making much anyway. And this is the “thank you” they give me for what I do, he thought. As the interview started with the lady whose dog walker story had just been read, he had enough. He’d been listening. Who cared about a goddamn dog walker? He took it off the air in the middle, and replaced it with some other StoryCorps thing. It was about the Tweeting love affair people. That was good for just 20 seconds. The hell with them. He turned it off. Now he got up and went searching around for something else to put on, returning with the middle of an interview with some guy who wrote porn. Well, la de da. At

this point, I believe, some uniformed security people, having been telephoned by a horrified radio station manager, burst in, turned THAT off, wrestled this disgruntled employee to the ground and then bodily carried him out of the studio and into the street to release him in the general direction of his car parked there, which I believe was a 2007 Hyundai Sonata. And that was the end of that. It was now 10 minutes to eight; 89.9 was still off the air. Well, what do the security people know about how to turn things back on? Undoubtedly, help was on the way. They’d have it straightened out soon. Thus is life in Connecticut and the Hamptons.

It Hit the Bat How Behavior at a Cricket Match Went Viral Around the World By DAN RATTINeR


n one of those minor sports networks on TV the other day, I paused to watch a football game between Indiana and Purdue that was played in 1998. The show was called The Big Ten’s Greatest Games. It’s hard to believe this was 15 years ago. But there were clues. The video was not hi-def and colors were washed out. And on one long run in the fourth quarter, a crucial touchdown pass was called back because it was ruled the receiver stepped out-of-bounds on the 20-yard line as he eluded a tackler and headed for the goal line. A replay— they had replays—showed that he never did step out of bounds. “Well, that’s how the referee ruled,” the announcer said. “So that’s all that mattered.” Besides the fact that today an instant replay would have reversed the call on the sidelines, it was interesting to note that the coach for the offensive team did make a fuss, but not a big fuss, and it got him nowhere, as he expected. The receiver said nothing. It did cost the game in the end. Today, there was an article on the front page of The New York Times sports section about a relatively unimportant cricket match that took place in Nottingham England between

the English national cricket team and the Australian national cricket team. A player had done something that would have gotten him out. He knew it. He looked at the umpire. The umpire hadn’t seen it. The player, batting, got his bat back in position to continue on. And so the game continued on. As it turned out, that little fib by the player did change the outcome of the game. But it also went to the heart of what’s supposed to be the most polite and honest sport in the world. It has since become an international incident. The player, even before the umpire had ruled, should have walked away from the plate, knowing he was out. At that point, even if the umpire tried to rule he was not out, the player would have prevailed. That, people say, is how you play cricket. By the rules. Here’s what the incident was all about. You know cricket is a crazy game. So follow this. There’s a pitcher and a catcher, and also a batter who hits with a flat-bladed bat. The idea is for the pitcher to throw the ball—it’s a hard cork-and-leather ball and some pitchers can throw it close to 100 miles an hour—and with that ball, hit a wooden post (a “stump”) set up in the ground in front of the catcher. If he can do that—the batter might miss it—then the batter is out and has to walk off, his “innings,”

as they are called, over. What the batter tries to do is hit the ball so it’s not caught on the fly. If it bounces first, and the batter is usually trying to hit grounders, he gets a “run” and stays up. There are no balls and strikes. That’s the whole game. It may be difficult for the pitcher to get the ball to hit the post behind the catcher. And it may not be often that the batter swings and misses. Usually, it’s pretty easy for a skilled batsman to hit the ball away. Thus a good batter can score dozens of runs before getting “out.” Even hundreds. Batters have been known to stay up at bat for hours, even days. And then there are the little rules that deal with smaller matters. And it’s one of these that this was about. What if, for instance, the pitcher hits the batter with the ball and it pops up and a fielder catches it, which would ordinarily be an out? Well, of course, it’s not an out. It’s a “run,” and the pitcher might get a warning card or something. In this case, the batter was Stuart Broad for England. England was behind. He was scoring run after run, however. And then, the pitcher sent the ball in very close to the batter and there was the clear sound of ball hitting bat. It popped up and a fielder caught it. Everyone in (Con’t on next page) the stadium apparently

heard that sound, even saw it hit—all except the umpire. Broad looked at the umpire. The umpire signaled “run.” And so, in a game where nobody ever, ever challenges a ruling, the match went on. Broad scored 28 more runs before he was out. In the end, and this match went on for two days—they actually break for “tea” frequently—the final score was 590 for England, 576 for Australia. Had Broad been called out (the term in cricket is “walk,”) his last 28 runs never would have happened. It should be noticed here that around the world there are tens of millions of fanatics who follow cricket. When Broad failed to “walk,” the Twittering began. And it continued on until the end of the match. And it was not so much that the wrong team won—who knows how it might

The man had been out. As a gentleman, he should have walked off even before the umpire ruled. “What has this come to?” Twittered one enthusiast. Numerous Twitters referred to a famous walk-

off in a crucial match between Sri Lanka and Australia in 2003 when a star player, Adam Gilchrist, had walked off, knowing his bat had hit the ball when no one saw or heard it, before the umpire could rule. “If ever there was a true Spirit of Cricket, it took the day off at Trent Bridge when Stuart Broad blatantly nicked a delivery to first slip but chose not to walk,” wrote sports columnist Paul Hayward in The Daily Telegraph. A “slip” is a particular position a fielder plays in cricket. What did come as a surprise, however, was the reaction of most of the players on both sides of the contest. In today’s world, there’s too much at stake, particularly financially. They had no quarrel with what Broad did. Within the normal politeness and good manners, he could not be blamed for trying to avoid hurting his team. Here, today, in the Hamptons, there is no cricket played that I know ofxxx. But there is golf. And when it’s played, on a private course by millionaires and billionaires, they do it really fast, practically speed-walking down the fairways, hitting the ball as quickly as possible when they get to it and then moving along to hit it again. It’s called power golf. Those not so good or powerful have to give way when the speed golfers approach. Let them through. And we do. A wealthy mogul’s golf match might get completed in half the time it takes everybody else. And when nobody is looking and the lie is bad, who knows? The idea is to beat the opponent. And many of them know what to do. The story of Stuart Broad, as told in this article, might have taught you the way cricket is played. Certainly it taught me. In all my travels during my life, I have sat through much of a day watching a cricket match (having no idea what was going on) only twice. Once it was in a stadium in Barbados. A very important match that I was lucky to get tickets to. It was the second day. On the first day, almost all work stopped in Barbados, or at least slowed down, as everyone on this entire island listened to the game over portable radios they carried around, or watched it on TV in bars and hotel lobbies. I had no idea what was going on in that stadium on the second day, but people were cheering all over the place. I also once got to watch a cricket match in a stadium in downtown Auckland, New Zealand. This was a whole different story. Although the game looked exactly the same as the other, all the players in their white shirts and pants and hats and all the good mannered camaraderie between them, the stadium was an uproarious mess of slobberingly drunk drunks. They whistled at pretty girls, passed beer back and forth between them, jostled and shoved one another, even threw cups of beer at one another (and the girls) and had no particular interest in the match at all except at special moments, which might occur at twohour intervals, when something very good was happening for the home team. Then they’d get up and cheer, and some of them would fall over. I do hope cricket recovers from this malfeasance. We need cricket in this world.

7-Eleven Sag Harbor, Greenport, Undocumented Immigrants, Exploitation


f you go into the Sag Harbor 7-Eleven today, it will appear to you that everything is exactly the same as it always was, except for the employees. They are completely different. A change in ownership? Where have the former employees, mostly Pakistanis and Filipinos, gone? They were here yesterday, now they are not. It’s been much more profound than that. And what has happened at that 7-Eleven, is, if proven true, an extraordinary story and a remarkable indictment of local real estate rental enforcement, immigration policies, business procedures, the lack of government oversight and personal exploitation. The American way of life might be better than any other, but apparently not always by much. It was all explained in an extraordinary press conference held three weeks ago by U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch, who appeared along with agents from the public affairs office for Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations and other enforcement organizations. Involved is the 7-Eleven in Sag Harbor, along with the 7-Elevens in Greenport and Cutchogue. 7-Eleven, a Japanese-owned conglomerate, has more stores around the world than any other franchise, including McDonald’s. All

together there are more than 50,000 7-Eleven stores worldwide. Some 7-Elevens are owned by the parent company. But most are run as franchises, with individual entrepreneurs getting a franchise license and running one or more stores. Though headquartered in Japan, 7-Eleven has sub-headquarters in every country, here in America in Dallas. Here, in sum, is what U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch said at the press conference and what can be gathered from other sources. A very well-to-do couple lives in a grand mansion in Head of the Harbor on Long Island, and this couple, together, or in combination with other members of their extended family, own, co-own and control twelve 7-Eleven franchises, most on Long Island and the remainder in Virginia. They are being accused of bilking more than $182 million in the last 13 years from the revenues that have come through the door, not from the register, but from manipulations made to their employees’ pay. A number of their employees were illegal immigrants, largely from Pakistan and the Philippines. Fearing deportation, Lynch said, they kept quiet about this for years and years. Lynch described how this worked. According to the indictments, these people would be brought over, put up in unregulated homes this wealthy couple had bought or rented near

the stores they owned, required to pay a rent in cash, and then were required to work long hours at the 7-Eleven, often 100 hours a week. These employees who worked 100 hours a week would be paid for only 25 to 30 hours. How could workers get so little for 100 hours of work? N.Y. State Police Superintendent Joseph A. D’Amico said they believe the illegal immigrants were provided with false documentation. The couple are alleged to have stolen the names and Social Security numbers from children as young as eight, some dead people and at least one Coast Guard cadet. They would then, according to the indictment, put the false information into the company’s automated payroll system. Dallas would get the information, which all looked proper, then they would honor the requested payroll and send the wages to the defendants, who were then to pay the employees. According the charges, the defendants paid the employees less than they were supposed to and kept what ended up being millions for themselves. As a result of all this, the following things have happened. The couple, who are naturalized American citizens, are originally from Pakistan and are Farrukh Baig, 57, and his wife Bushra Baig, 49. The Baigs are being held without bail. The charges include conspiring to commit wire fraud, stealing identities and concealing (Cont’d on next page) and harboring illegal

A lawyer for the Baigs said his clients were not guilty and were operating their businesses in the best American tradition while abiding by all the proper laws. A spokesperson for 7-Eleven, Margaret Chabris, said 7-Eleven, Inc. “will take aggressive actions to audit the employment status of all its franchisees’ employees. 7-Eleven Inc. is taking steps to assume corporate operation of the stores involved in this action so we can continue to serve our guests. We continue to cooperate with federal authorities in this matter.” And so, the coffee at 7-Eleven is still being served as always. The store did not miss a beat, except that one day it opened late.

Years ago, when the franchise applicant for 7-Eleven applied to open the store in Sag Harbor, the townspeople vigorously opposed the application. Businesses in that town needed to be owned by people who live in the town, they said. That way we know them and they know us. 7-Eleven is a corporate situation run from far, far away. The Village of Sag Harbor had no laws that could keep 7-Eleven away. And so the store came and opened. And now, if these allegations prove true, we know the rest.

Photos from the rescue of Montauk lobsterman John Aldridge

Miracle at Sea

The Heroic Rescue of Montauk Fisherman John Aldridge By KeLLy LAFFey

Lost at sea” stories so rarely have a happy ending. But few rescue efforts have such unconditional community support as Montauk recently provided to lost-and-found local lobsterman John Aldridge. As much as Montauk radiates the energy of an idyllic seaside resort community, there’s also a determined quality amongst all who love the hamlet, a side that was on display last week when Aldridge was plucked from the Deep Blue by the U.S. Coast Guard. The miraculous rescue occurred nine hours after an intense search began and 12 and a half hours after Aldridge fell overboard in the dark, early morning hours of Wednesday, July 24, buoyed by his rubber boots and an unwavering will to survive. He went into survival mode. “Dying wasn’t an option,” confirmed Aldridge in a press conference, while holding his young nephew. During his time in the water, Aldridge had a knife in his pocket, and he was able to cut lobster buoys loose. He used those, as well as his boots, as flotation devices. Aldridge’s fishing boat Anna Mary left Montauk the evening of July 23. He fell overboard sometime around 3:30 a.m. on July 24 after he went to move a cooler and the handle snapped. Fishing partner Anthony Sosinski woke up a few hours later and realized his friend was missing.

“He (Aldridge) left clues,” said Sosinski. “I started backtracking my steps and analyzing the boat.” Sosinski, nicknamed “Little Anthony,” initially feared that Aldridge had drowned in one of the 2,000-pound lobster tanks on board. He quickly took inventory of his ship, which was 62 miles offshore at the time. “There were stacked coolers on the boat that were moved, and one had a broken handle,” said Little Anthony.

“When I first went in at night, I saw a fin or two...[I thought] I just got to keep my composure, I can’t panic...” Anthony charted his course and called the Coast Guard to ask for air support. A call also went out to the local fishermen. “Our fishing friends offshore basically stopped what they were doing and headed in my direction,” said Little Anthony, explaining that boats lined up a half mile apart either in an east-west direction or a north-south direction to form a grid. “The local fishermen really, really stepped up and helped Anthony patrol the waters closer

in,” says local resident and musician Nancy Atlas. “That freed up the helicopters to do longer runs.” Two rescue boat crews from Station Montauk, two Coast Guard 87-foot rescue patrol boats, aircraft and two rescue helicopters from ASCC, along with several good Samaritans and local fishing vessels, searched about nine hours to find Aldridge. The coordination between the vessels and the Coast Guard allowed them to cover an area of 660 square miles, approximately the size of 378,000 American football fields. “All of the local support and the federal government support was unprecedented,” noted Little Anthony. “It’s very telling, how the community came together,” confirms Atlas. There are rumors, though unconfirmed, that Jimmy Buffett and his boat the Last Mango were among those in the search party. Even if that proves untrue, his song “Fins” rung a little too close to home for Aldridge that fateful night. “When I first went in at night, I saw a fin or two,” said Aldridge. “[I thought] I just got to keep my composure, I can’t panic… “I grabbed my boots, filled them with air and threw them under my arms,” said Aldridge. “The water was warm,” he added. The current temperature of the Atlantic is about 75 degrees. Rescue efforts spanned the better part of Wednesday. John spotted (Cont’d on next page)

various ships while floating, but “they were all looking away from me,” he says. “He told me I passed him two times,” says Anthony. “[He said] ‘I saw you and all I could think about were the burgers in the cooler.’” Aldridge was found by the Coast Guard approximately 43 miles south of Montauk. He was taken to Falmouth Hospital on Cape Cod

and was treated for dehydration, exposure and hypothermia. “The swimmer came out and jumped in the water and said ‘We’ve been looking for you for nine hours’ and I was like, ‘I’ve been looking for you for 12 hours,’” said Aldridge in the press conference. Likely adding to the challenges of spotting a man in the immense expanse of ocean, Aldridge was wearing a blue shirt, from the Anna Mary’s Blessing of the Fleet 2012. “Everyone gets a shirt [for the Blessing of the Fleet],” says Anthony. “Same shirt, same team.” Incidentally, some fishermen have become disenfranchised with the Blessing of the Fleet as of late because of the amount of regulations involved in the ceremony, says Anthony, who

Cathy Patterson, Aldridge’s sister, upon hearing he was saved

says he was ticketed for not having enough lifejackets on board about “two or three years ago.” “It’s like ticketing someone for not wearing a seatbelt in a parade,” Anthony deadpans. But that hasn’t taken away from the purity of the yearly Montauk tradition, and its ties to this latest rescue story. “It’s for everyone who loves that ocean. It’s the start of our season and is a time for remembrance; for everyone to be safe.” The next blessing of the fleet is nearly a year away. But, Atlas notes that an amazing thing through all this is that Anthony is already back out at sea, having left this past weekend. The media coverage was slightly overwhelming. “He’s just happy that his friend is alive…He said ‘I just need to get back on the ocean. I’m my calmest there.’” Aldridge too, plans to get back on the sea soon, according to Anthony. “He’s still working, just not out on the ocean,” he said from his post out at sea. “He just needs to heal.”

New Historical exhibit Looks Back on Jazz Age By JoAN BAuM


hat a great subtitle for fans of the Jazz Age, if not also alliteration: “Clothes, Clubs and Contraband” aptly references distinctive features of this iconic period in American cultural history—which The East Hampton Historical Society (EHHS) is celebrating at the Clinton Academy Museum in an attractive exhibit, “Jazz Age East Hampton (1919-1933).” A slang word said to be of uncertain origin, “jazz” is likely related to “jism” or its variant “jizz,” a term generally defined as spirit, excitement or propulsive energy. To judge from the historic photographs, decorative arts, artifacts and period fashions on display at the academy, however, it would seem that the sexual suggestions of the word yielded to the societal on Long Island, with the era’s pleasures reflecting the sartorial and social world of local gentry rather than the demimonde of African Americans and others in New Orleans who put jazz on the map as music. “Jazz Age East Hampton” is a treat for the eyes. It includes swimsuits, children’s outfits, dresses, jewelry, parasols, a banjo, athletic medal awards, wooden golf clubs and a croquet set. A special section of the room is devoted to the Ladies Village Improvement Society (LVIS) and the Maidstone Club. And, oh yes, that third “C” of the subtitle: “contraband.” Would you believe there’s even a half-full, decades-old bottle of liquor, most likely whiskey, says EHHS Executive Director Richard Barons and his wife

Roseanne, who curated this show. The Jazz Age, after all, paralleled the era of Prohibition. The booze, boat contraband recovered nine miles south of Jones Inlet in 80 feet of water, dates to October 1922, and gives off a slight scent if you sniff the new cork and have a potent imagination. The inspiration for the exhibit came to him, Barons says, when he went online to the Library of Congress (LC) to check something and lo! saw a bunch of images on the LC website, many of lush, local gardens in the area. And, of course, he relies, as always, on the kindness of area families and friends who keep donating items to EHHS. Peggy Sherrill, for example, came in bearing a beaded red dress (she had been equally generous with photos for the EHHS exhibit “The Long Island Express: Rare Photographs of East Hampton Town After the 1938 Hurricane”). To judge from the sleeveless tunic-style dresses on show, red would seem to have been the default color of the period, with black a runner up, and red, white and black a frequent color combination, especially in Orientalinspired dresses and kimonos, embroidery still intact. As for swim wear, for men and women, though made of wool, the suits look modern and comfortable. Among dressing table artifacts, there’s a “hair receiver,” which Barons explains was where women stored brushed-out hair to be used as ornaments, a tradition that dates to he 19th century, possibly earlier. The jewelry is elegant and simple, reminding Barons of a

Several photographic images have not been seen before, Barons notes. Some will startle—the Montauk fishing pier, for example, a zeppelin going by, a reminder that there had been a dirigible station in Montauk; a hand-colored photo of the recently opened Montauk Manor, with horses and hitching post out front; a picture of three golfers posing for the camera, clubs in hand, ties and long socks de rigueur. The remarkable garden photos show the Italianate influence prominent at the time, pergolas and all. A particularly gorgeous back yard turns out to be a photo of a painting by Childe Hassam of his cottage on Egypt Lane. “Jazz Age East Hampton (1919–1933) Clothes, Clubs, and Contraband” at Clinton Academy Museum, 151 Main Street, East Hampton.

Dan’s Kite Fly Returns This Sunday, August 4 By ARTuRo FigARo


he Dan’s Papers 41st Annual Kite Fly is almost here, and we expect to see some wild wind structures at Sagg Main Beach! Upon arrival, make sure you fill out a short registration card to be entered to win in variety of different kite categories including, but not limited to: most colorful, best homemade, funniest, most exotic, highest kite, longest tail and a new addition, “Best Dance Party Kite” thanks to our friends at All For The East End (AFTEE), who will have information about their world class music event, AFTEE’s Nile Rodgers Dance Party—East End which will take place on August 19 at Martha Clara Vineyards.

raises FUN. One of those rare FREE events for the entire family on the beach, Dan’s Kite Fly is something everyone should experience at least once. Many continue to come back year after year. So, we invite outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds to come celebrate 41 years of kite-flying tradition with Dan’s Papers on August 4, beginning after 5:30 p.m. at Sagg Main Beach in Sagaponack (judging begins around 6 p.m.). The event will be accompanied by activities provided by Party Kidz, including face painting, jugglers and magicians—to keep the kids entertained between kite flying duties while parents enjoy the scenic views and celebrate the simple joy of being active and outdoors with live music by

the Jim Turner Band. So get your dancing shoes ready (if you feel like it)! The Town of Southampton will lift stickerparking restrictions for the parking lot at Sagg Main Beach after 5:30 p.m., allowing visitors to attend the event for the annual cost of… nothing, as long as they park in the beach parking lot. Locals, summer visitors, and amateur kiteflyers have all flocked to the beaches to catch sight of the majestic spectacle. Come down and experience a unique, homegrown event that has offered families a stellar line up of activities since 1972, making this event the oldest kite festival on the East End. We hope to see you there!

Dan’s Papers Kite Fly is a beloved Hamptons event.

Just don’t get your hopes up for nailing the world record for biggest kite: Kite enthusiast Peter Lynn of New Zealand won that honor when he flew a kite that he called “The Big One” over the sea in Southsea, England at the 2005 Portsmouth International Kite Festival. The contraption, in the shape of a Kuwaiti flag, measured in at 138 ft. x 82 ft. That’s about 3,445 square feet—nearly 30% larger than the average American home. The kite was ramair inflated, took about 750 hours to build, and shattered the 1997 Guinness record for World’s Largest Kite previously held by…Peter Lynn, the godfather of kite innovation, who is widely credited with the popularization of such activities as kite-surfing and kite-buggying, and owns patents on dozens of different kite designs. There’s a reason why Newsday named Dan’s Kite-Fly as one of the Top 50 Family Things To Do during the Long Island summer season for two years in a row. What’s better than ending a Sunday beach day, fully embracing the salty smells and calming ocean breezes with something as joyful as kite flying? Dan’s Papers’ Kite Fly is a Hamptons institution and has even spawned similar events, some of which raise huge sums of money for worthy causes. But Dan’s Kite Fly doesn’t raise funds; it only

evening in the Garden of eden

This isn’t going to end well.” That’s the first thing that came to my mind as I watched the Maker (best described as an impish, god-like mad scientist) bring her creation to life. Beautiful and innocent, this certainly wasn’t Frankenstein’s monster, but something felt very wrong as the creation— we’ll call her Eve—gasped her first breaths and stumbled out of the operating room, confused, struggling to stay alive. But she got her bearings and eventually stood on her own two feet, her stunning beauty on display for all to see. She was already too perfect, but the Maker wasn’t finished yet. She soon brought out a tall, strong man with a vacant stare. Eve was frightened of the Man, and he was frightened of her. But then their hands touched. The three crows that had been watching the action and assisting the Maker nodded in satisfaction to each other and flew off. The Maker was elated; I could see it in her face. But then they saw the tree. Off in the distance, a tree without leaves slowly emitted a pink light that seemed to beckon to Eve and Man. They approached it in awe; as I squinted I thought it was an apple tree, but then I realized that the branches held things—a Dolce & Gabbana shopping bag, an issue of Metropolitan, a case of makeup and many other things. Eve and Man gravitated, strangely, toward a newspaper and apron. The Maker panicked, screaming for them to get away HDS_Dans.Reg_6.187x6_c.pdf

from the tree, but it was no use. Eve and Man took their new belongings, linked arms and happily rushed off. I wanted to follow them, but I was too concerned for the Maker. She was frantic as she searched through her plans and instructions for some kind of failsafe, but there was nothing of use. With no other option, the Maker took off after her creations. Things only went downhill from there. I heard music coming from a small, darkened room and I looked inside. Eve and Man were playing house...but was it a game, or something much more serious? As Eve and Man played out their fantasy of eve is born the perfect American couple, the scene started to warp. Man became overwhelmed and ran out; the Maker stormed in and tried to reason with Eve, who was angry and stormed off. I heard a noise coming from the area with the tree, so I ran back. Eve, Man and the Maker weren’t alone. Another stunningly beautiful woman, who some called Lilith, was having her way with Man, who was both horrified and in ecstasy.

“Dan’s memoirs are like Dan’s Newspapers: charming, whimsical, and filled with insightful knowledge of the East End.” — Walter Isaacson,



When he realized that what he was doing was wrong, he ran off, leaving Lilith alone. She threw a temper tantrum, but then composed herself. “Out of my way!” she screamed to no one in particular as she stomped off in her red high heels. Soon, Lilith returned with Eve, who was confused but excited by her new “friend.” Lilith had plans for poor Eve, and those plans were something that nobody—not Man, not the Maker, not anyone—could stop. When I next saw the Maker, she was despondent in her laboratory. What had happened to her creations? What had gone wrong? What could she do to set things back to the way they were supposed to be? And what exactly did Lilith have Tom Kochie

Cindy Pease Roe: Turning Garbage to Art By SANDRA HALe SCHuLMAN


s one of the top nautical painters in the Northeast, Cindy Pease Roe’s work is dependant on the health and beauty of the sea and the shore. “Take a walk along any beach in Long Island now,” says Roe, “and washed ashore you’ll find plastic printed party balloons—the new enemy left behind by beach partiers—polythene grocery store bags, bottles, containers, plastic drums, expanded polystyrene packing, polyurethane foam pieces, pieces of polypropylene fishing net and discarded lengths of rope and buoys. Together with traffic cones, disposable lighters, vehicle tires and toothbrushes, these items are casually thrown away on land and at sea and carried ashore by wind and tide.” According to Greenpeace International, “The very thing that makes plastic items useful to consumers, their durability and stability, also makes them a problem in marine environments. Around 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year of which about 10% ends up in the sea. About 20% of this is from ships and platforms, the rest from land.” But one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. “I collect all this plastic trash, bleach it— some items may be toxic—and then sort it into large pails by color and material,” Roe says. “Then I start to make art with it.” Roe began with wreath shapes in various colors and themes, and then made larger

animal shaped sculptures using wire frames. “Herman” the turtle is wonderfully whimsical, flying through the air as formerly perilous fishing lures and netting animate his shell. “Rudolph” the life-size deer is stuffed with large plastic bottles, and party balloon ribbon gives him a curly springy head. These pieces are a component of a larger plastic awareness series that transforms the destructive elements of plastic into a constructive form of art. Last fall, 4th graders at Greenport Elementary School went on a bus to a beach on the North Shore, collecting plastic to make art with for the library. They made wreaths and small reindeer. Kids react with sheer delight and amazement to the statues, so Roe connected with the Oyster Pond Elementary School, which initially began as a conversation started with a group of students about the importance of recycling and the consequences of litter. After sharing information, organizations and some sobering statistics, Roe and the students set out to the shore in a big school bus with gloves and buckets to begin their observation and collection of found plastic. “I was surprised how few of the kids were aware of the plastic on the beach, because they don’t go very often,” says Roe. “Once I trained their eye to see the stuff, they found so much of it. The worst is the party balloons, as they are usually filled with helium and they escape from the outdoors parties. Then they get carried out

Recycled art supplies

over the ocean, where they eventually fall into the water. Turtles think they’re jellyfish—one of their favorite foods—and eat them, then they choke and it kills them. Another problem is that even the plastic that is small and gets ground up and is ingested by marine life. Then we eat it. I don’t want to freak the kids out too much, so we make it fun. The art on their walls is a permanent reminder of what is happening to the sea and shore.” Each class participated in the project from the collection and sorting, to the final construction of a 5-foot sculpture of a fish compiled of their reclaimed material. The big fish was on display at the school science fair. “I care so deeply about our waterfront,” says Roe. “And I love marine life, this is how I can help my community through the art.

Sag Harbor to Host Special Speaker on Reform Judaism


his Friday night, Temple Adas Israel in Sag Harbor will host a very special guest speaker: Rabbi Rick Jacobs, president of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ). Those who attend services will have the opportunity to hear Rabbi Jacobs speak about “Renovating Jewish Life: The Reform Movement at a Crossroads.” The URJ movement is often described as one of the more liberal parts of Judaism; the URJ spoke out strongly in support of gay marriage during the Supreme Court rulings last month. With more than 1.5 million estimated Reform Jews in North America, Reform Judaism is considered the largest Jewish movement in North America. Rabbi Jacobs has served as president of the URJ since June 2012, following other successful positions, including 20 years serving as leader of the Westchester Reform Temple (WRT) in Scarsdale. “I’m looking Rabbi Rick Jacobs forward to getting to know the [Temple Adas] congregation and the wider community,” Rabbi Jacobs said last week. The way in which Rabbi Jacobs’ guest appearance came about was coincidental. Last summer, Rabbi Jacobs happened to attend Saturday morning Shabbat services at Temple

Adas Israel. “He sometimes finds himself on the East End,” explains Rabbi Leon Morris, the leader of Temple Adas Israel. Last year’s visit came at a less-than-auspicious time—the Saturday morning after the largest Friday night services the Temple had seen, so few people attended. But Rabbi Jacobs accepted the invitation to return, and will discuss the crossroads at which many religious communities find themselves today, hopefully to a larger crowd. “People are not going to automatically join today as they might have in a previous generation,” he explains. This drop in religious affiliation means that some synagogues, both in the Reform movement and those outside the movement, often have dwindling numbers, and some have even had to close their doors. This development, combined with other challenges that the Reform movement faces—how to engage more young people, how to improve upon outdated structures—are large issues that Rabbi Jacobs spends much of his time thinking about and analyzing. Rabbi Jacobs outlines three strategic areas that the URJ sees as critical to improving the functioning of this body, which was formed in 1873 by Rabbi Isaac Mayer Wise as the Union of American Hebrew Congregations. Courtesy


“We want to catalyze congregational change,” Rabbi Jacobs explains as the first pillar. He poses the question, “Is Hebrew School still a model we suffer through?” Engaging the next generation is the second pillar, helping engage teenagers and young adults fresh out of college who might have lost connection with their synagogue after their Bat and Bar Mitzvahs. As a third objective, Rabbi Jacobs wants to “extend our reach beyond the walls of synagogues.” This could mean offering classes for interfaith couples seeking to raise their children Jewish, or welcoming LGBT individuals. “He was always a model of the best that’s out there—the most innovative programming, the most innovative synagogue,” Rabbi Morris explains. “Almost everything we’re doing is a kind of outreach to Jews who haven’t connected with their Jewishness.” He sees this visit as “an opportunity to reflect on what the meaning of our affiliation with the Reform movement is.” In another realm, Rabbi Jacobs has worked with the Reform movement to make sure that even beyond the Jewish community, that the URJ reaches out to other faiths to forge stronger connections in an increasingly diverse United States. The Reform movement organized the first interfaith response to the Newtown shooting, “We’re definitely involved in working across the waterfront of the interfaith world.” Visitors are welcome at Shabbat services this Friday night at 8 p.m. to hear Rabbi Rick Jacobs speak. 30 Atlantic Avenue, Sag Harbor.

ix, speculates Southampton Historical Society archivist Mary Cummings on the number of Stanford White houses still extant in the Southampton area. These include the Shinnecock Hills Golf Club Clubhouse, arguably, the best known; White Fence, a.k.a. the Samuel Parrish House on First Neck Lane; the William Merritt Chase House in Shinnecock Hills; the Edward Mead house on Hill Street; the James Hampden Robb House, a.k.a. the Dolphins; and the Breese Estate, a.k.a. the Orchard, later called Whitefield, whose exterior was mainly designed by McKim (of McKim, Mead and White), though White did the spectacular Music Room interior. But were there, or are there, more, that might evidence details of the legendary architect? Cummings is not sure, but she does know that two local residences—the J.F Pupke House and White Caps—did not survive. The principals of McKim, Mead and White worked in such close conjunction with one another (if not always in close harmony), and with their clients, fellow club men whom White knew well, that it can be difficult at times to separate out specific White contributions, including revisions, as houses underwent multi-year construction. Although McKim or Mead took the lead on some projects, White absorbed more of the credit because of his fame. White “cottages”—their wide verandas, tall posts and window and door arrangements planned to accommodate cooling breezes, the

Need Sand to Fill your Summer Bucket List? Here It Is By STACy DeRMoNT, STePHANIe De TRoy, GeNevIeve HoRSBuRGH, KeLLy LAFFey, Lee MeyeR, oLIveR PeTeRSoN


here are 31 days until Labor Day, which means that summer’s light is fleeting. But if you’re a glass-half-full kind of person, that a solid month of Hamptonsy Hamptons adventures to be had. What will you accomplish each day before Tumbleweed Tuesday hits? Be sure to check these items off your bucket list before summer fades away... 1. Grab an ice cream cone. But not just any cone. The quintessential Sag Harbor ice cream experience is Big Olaf’s. It’s been down on the wharf for decades—it’s the fabled ice creamery

where novelist Colson Whitehead’s protagonist in Sag Harbor spends a summer burning his fingers while making waffle cones. To this day there’s a little Plexiglass station set up in the front where you can delight in watching teenagers singe their fingertips for the sake of waffle conery. Get a small peanut butter waffle cone dipped in Reese’s pieces and go with it to a nearby bench to watch the sunset as you lick your way to a blissful sugar high. 2. Try skishing off Georgica. This new extreme sport puts fishermen in the water with their prey, wearing fins and carrying a rod and reel. 3. Visit the LongHouse Reserve. 4. Go for a bike ride around Shelter Island. Enjoy the beauty of a place with no stoplights.

Stop at Goldberg’s for bagels and Hampton Coffee for an iced latte on your way out here, and enjoy your East End bounty at the beach. 30.

The Circle We Run In By SAMANTHA DeLL’oLIo


could not wait to get to there. Tonight we would pick up my cousins on the way to Noyac. I guess all my stuff was packed. I mean, I didn’t really think about it much back then. Clothes consisted of T-shirts and cutoffs and the Converse I had on could last all summer. I would probably swap clothes with my cousin. Maybe we’d get lucky and steal something from our sisters because they were older, and always had the right stuff, but all we really cared about on this journey was family and food. After pulling over in a quiet residential block in Coney Island where my cousins lived, I stretched my 30-minute cramped legs as my mom stuffed their luggage in. The smell of this Atlantic was the perfect appetizer before meeting its unpredictable but incredibly beautiful sister 100 miles away. My parents had a beach cottage near Sag Harbor. We lived in Manhattan and came out for a month each July. “Can I get a soda out?” I interrupt my mom as she’s talking to my uncle about traffic. “Share it! And don’t knock over the eggplant or the tray with the cookies while you’re there!” she says in an annoyed but loving way. Who brings leftover eggplant on a trip to the Hamptons? We do. Mom rushed to get out of the apartment so she wants the rest of her dinner when we get there. Other families order Chinese or simply just brush their teeth and go to bed after a long Samantha Dell’Olio is a freelance book publicist and has worked at both Random House and Penguin.

car ride. Not us. We’re Italian and “the kitchen never closes” as my mom always complains. The exits on the LIE breeze by as we make jokes, interrupt one another and pass around bags of crinkly chips and pretzels. As the roads quiet, so do our voices. The windows are open now. We don’t need air conditioning since the sea breeze fills our congested city lungs with sweet memories and prospects of more to come. The dividers in the road are perfectly spaced and the sound of our wheels falling into them put everyone in a trance. As we turn off 27 to more twists and turns, mom perks up at the wheel to search for deer. No one wants to ruin Rudolph’s summer vacation. The crickets greet us with a warm country welcome and by the time we turn into our pitch-black driveway they sound as if they have invaded the glove compartment. The following day we arrive at Circle—a private beach resting on Noyac Bay with wavy, blue water and succulent, salty clams. For some, this is just another Hamptons masterpiece with hand-painted sunsets and camel-colored sand dunes cascading in the distance. To us, the city kids so happy to escape the sidewalk heat, it’s everything. It’s where we learned to swim, watch fireworks light up the loud night and where we first held the hands of nervous teenage boys. It represents everything beautiful and untouched on the East End. It’s an oasis that doesn’t change even as the surrounding bungalows add a fence and soft-colored hydrangeas grow past a kitchen window. Circle Beach will always be the same in our adoring eyes. Today we’re here schlepping striped beach chairs and library books we won’t ever open. We have already forgotten (Continued on page 66)

f I were to list all of Broadway producer Stewart Lane’s credits and accomplishments, there’d be no need to write an article about him. The storied and extremely successful showbiz vet has produced a ton of Tony and other award-winning plays and musicals, written several successful books and owns a Broadway theater. But this August, Lane will be putting on a different hat—“an Erronius one,” to be exact, in the Bay Street Theatre’s production of Larry Gelbart, Burt Shevelove and Stephen Sondheim’s A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. I spoke with Lane about the production, his career and his greatest accomplishments. “This was an opportunity to ‘walk the boards,’” Lane says of his return to acting. Lane is a graduate of Boston University, where he studied acting, and is excited that he’ll be performing at the Bay Street Theatre. “I’ve always been a big supporter of the Bay Street Theatre. And this show gives me the opportunity to do what I love and be with my family.” Lane is looking forward to playing the wacky character of Erronius. “I see him as the Mr. Magoo character; he has more of a ‘sight problem’ than anything else,” Lane chuckles. But Forum isn’t the only project on Lane’s plate. Perhaps his most high-profile project right now is the upcoming Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet, with The Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom and multiple Tonynominee Condola Rashad as the star-crossed lovers. Lane can’t wait for audiences to see the show, which will retain the classical text. “It’s more contemporary, though. We’re excited to have two young, talented people in this more

Stewart Lane PRODUCER

An iconic Broadway producer steps onstage at the Bay Street Theatre. modern setting.” Earlier this year, Lane produced a brief run of Jekyll & Hide, which has gone on to a successful tour. But Jekyll & Hide is a blip on the radar compared to some of Lane’s other shows. One show that he holds especially dear to his heart is La Cage Aux Follies, which he worked on in 1987. “That was my second Broadway nomination,” he recalls, “and my first win. To have my dreams realized that I was right all these years! You believe in yourself, sure, but there’s always that nagging doubt otherwise.” But it was during a trip to the Hamptons when Lane knew he had truly arrived. “It was also my first time out there in the Hamptons. I grew up on Long Island, but I never really made it past Syosset,” he chuckles. “We had just won the Tony; I had been out there invited to a party, and it was a typical party for the Hamptons, but for me it was spectacular! And I’m sitting at this table with all these [Broadway] people I would read about...sitting with them!”

While Lane’s educational training is more “classical, because I’m the owner/manager of the Palace Theater I’ve got to keep the theater filled with hits.” As a result, many of the highly successful projects Lane’s worked on have been big, mainstream musicals, like Thoroughly Modern Millie, which made a star out of its lead, Sutton Foster. “Like Bernadette Peters, she’s one of ‘those’—she stays with the show the entire run. She had that kind of a loyalty to the show.” Lane has also worked with the legendary Peters when she starred as Mama Rose in Gypsy in 2007. A recent project close to Lane’s heart is an adaptation of the classic RKO film Top Hat, which won the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Musical on the West End in London. “This is one of those projects...going back 35 years, I made a list of shows I wanted to see on stage. This one was on the list. Like 42nd Street, it really stood on its own as a theater piece.” Lane first began developing the piece 30 years ago, when Irving Berlin, who composed the music for the film, was still alive. The show premiered on tour, proved successful, and moved to the West End. “We added ten other Irving Berlin songs to it,” Lane notes. “It’s more of a rethinking, a ‘theatricalization’ of a cinema piece.” While shows that use pre-existing songs are sometimes looked down upon by theatergoers, Lane thinks there’s a place for them. “What’s happened is we’ve discovered an acceptable form. If you can do a Jersey Boys, it’ll be embraced critically and commercially; if you do a Mamma Mia! it will be embraced more commercially.” Lane thinks the familiar music is comforting to audiences.

designs as well. He and his firm changed the face of New York City and made Southampton the place to be in summer (thanks also to the railroad). In Houses of the Hamptons, Gary Lawrence and Anne Surchin note that the Dolphins, 1895, exemplary of White’s “deliberate informality,” helped inspire the trend of sprawling seaside villas, rambling Shingle Style houses and 50-room cottages of “every conceivable style.” “Shingle Style” became synonymous with McKim, Mead and White, and though the Shingle Style era lasted only 10 years, Surchin says, its influence is “forever.” Whether modest, as the seven original Montauk Association houses (1882-1884) or custom-made (as the Orchard, whose plan built out from an existing farmhouse), the style made its mark for beautiful functionality and quiet elegance. But, oh! the difference between Shingle Style then and now, as Surchin points out. Today, Shingle Style houses are “so over the top,” crowding out the natural surroundings that were essential to the firm’s designs. What historic White gems remain, restored or refurbished, most still in private hands, testify to a time when grand country houses humbled themselves, at least on the outside, before the dictates of Nature and made harmony with the environment an integral part of their stunning aesthetic designs.

The William Merritt Chase House, 1892, was incredibly innovative—Samuel White calls it “the ultimate family house”—because it reflected the dual use of the house as studio and home, its cleverly constructed doors and slightly raised room levels, and that expansive 2nd floor, designed to invite both intimacy and community.

public and private nature of the best suburban domestic architecture.” Though faithful to the Shingle Style, for which the firm is known, the partners explored new possibilities, never replicating earlier achievements. Surchin calls the firm “experimental,” especially regarding what they did with floor plans, staircases and roofs. In the book In Search of Modern Architecture: A Tribute to Henry-Russell Hitchcock, it’s noted that the 1886 Edward Mead House on Hill Street and Halsey Neck Lane “followed” a New England Colonial look the firm had established in Newport, but that the principals adapted a Dutch gambrel farmhouse-type roof (famously seen in the Shinnecock Hills Golf Club Clubhouse), and subtly subverted symmetry, as in their trademark wide Dutch front door

Who’s Here By DAN RATTINeR

ohn Catsimatidis, who has had a house in the Hamptons for more than 30 years, is running for Mayor of New York this fall. A billionaire several times over, he received the Liberal Party endorsement last month. He hopes to have the Republican nomination after winning the primary in September. Mike Bloomberg, the current Mayor, won with these two endorsements. Catsimatidis, a businessman like Bloomberg, hopes to follow in Bloomberg’s footsteps. “With Mayor Bloomberg, more than $100 million in new jobs flowed into New York City. With my experience, I can keep that flow going,” Catsimatidis says. John Catsimatidis’ life is a true rags to riches tale. Born on the small Greek island of Nisyros, just off the coast of Turkey, he was brought to America by his mother and father when he was six months old. His father’s two brothers were already in America. But they had to vouch for their third brother and his family before they could be let in. “There was no government safety net then,” John says. “If my father ran into debts, his brothers would have to pay them.” His father’s first job? “He became a bus boy at Longchamps Restaurant on Lexington Avenue. Because his native language was Italian.” He spoke Italian, coming from a Greek Island off the coast of Turkey? This required an explanation. John gave it. “Nisyros was originally a Turkish island that, at the beginning of the 20th century got gifted to the Italians,” he said. “After the Second World War, which the Italians lost, the island was gifted to Greece. This happened in 1948, the year I was born. Turns out that I was conceived an Italian, but then nine months later, I was born a Greek.” Thus an Italian man, who had worked for 30 years for the Italian government guarding a lighthouse on the island, fathered a Greek son who he brought to America to become an American citizen. Only in America. John attended Brooklyn Technical High School, graduated in 1966, then went to NYU, where he studied to get a B.S. in Engineering. His goal was, while at NYU, to be an astronaut and go to the moon. (In 1962, President Kennedy vowed to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade, and he did, but it was not to be John.) What happened was that to pay for college, John took a job in a grocery store on 137th Street in the Bronx owned by the uncle of a college friend and got interested in the grocery business. He decided, at the age of 20, to open his own grocery store and he did, buying an existing store on 99th Street and Broadway which the former owners had called Seven Eleven. It was not related to 7-Eleven. But, as the former owners told him, “if 7-Eleven came to New York, they’d have to buy us out.” A year later, John opened another store, on 87th and Broadway, which he called Red Apple. And from there he began to expand. “By the time I was 25, I had ten stores and was making a million dollars a year in profit.

John Catsimatidis PoLITICIAN & BuSINeSSMAN

A legendary businessman prepares to make another mark on New York City At first, my vendors helped me open the stores by offering me credit. I did not use banks. Later on though, I did.” We were talking in John’s offices, which occupy the third floor of a building on Eleventh Avenue, between 56th and 57th Streets. “One of the vendors who gave me credit was just up here last week and I showed him around. He’s in his 80s now.” John got interested in flying. He became a licensed jet pilot, taking instruction at the Ramapo Airport upstate when he was about 25. After a while, as a rich young man at the time, he hired a pilot for his planes. Then, in 1977 when he was 29, Atlantic City opened as a gambling resort to rival Las Vegas. “I thought, well, here is a business opportunity. People from New Jersey or New York would take the bus down to Atlantic City. But people from farther away would want to fly down. I talked to my pilot. We’d go into business ferrying people down from Connecticut and Massachusetts.” John began buying airplanes. There’s a picture on the wall of one of his first airplanes, a twin engine jet, that his company United Jet Fleet used. “You see the letters RD on the side?” he asked me. I told him I did. “That plane was built for

Roy Disney before I bought it.” Soon afterwards, he bought Capitol Air Express and was operating more than 40 airplanes on numerous routes around the country and around the world. That company today is known as NetJets. John also began to buy commercial real estate. He had all these food stores. “But these businesses were only as good as the land they were on. If they were on leased properties, you had nothing. I wanted us to own the land the food stores were on.” In 1986 when he was 38 years old, he purchased the Gristedes supermarket chain of 50 stores and changed the names of all his other stores to the Gristedes name. The following year, he took what was probably the biggest business gamble of his life. He’d wanted to get into the gas station mini-market business and found a firm in upstate New York that consisted of a string of 300 mini-marts and gas stations backed up by the United Refining Company of Warren, Pennsylvania, which was also part of the business. This business was going into bankruptcy. It owed more than $100 million in debts, which were unsecured and would go away in the bankruptcy. Once in bankruptcy, though, he was able to buy it out of bankruptcy for $7 million. “I borrowed the money from J.P. Morgan using the real estate I owned as collateral. And then I discovered the value of the oil company. The mini-marts and gas station were just the tail on the dog. The oil company, if I could put in leadership and get it in the right direction, could be worth a fortune.” When John bought the company in January of 1987, he met with the creditors committee. They had no security. After the bankruptcy, he had no reason to pay them. But he said he would do his best when the profits came in. “I met with them monthly. In June, I was able to tell them we had a $7.5 million profit. I could begin to repay them. I had now gained their respect. They said keep it up. And I did. Soon, I was able to pay back the whole $100 million. I paid them 100 cents on the dollar. This was unheard of. But I did it. I also saved 6,000 jobs.” Last year, the oil company did $6 billion in business and made $500 million. In 1988, John married his longtime secretary, Margo Vondersaar. She had been his first secretary (he hired her when he was 29) and had been with him through thick and thin, including an earlier marriage that did not work out for John. Margo Catsimatidis, who is one of New York City’s prominent philanthropists, continues to work with him. Born of Russian and Polish heritage, she grew up in a poor family in Indiana and studied to be a ballerina. At age 12, she was the youngest ballerina to be invited to perform with the Bolshoi Ballet. But soon thereafter, she suffered an injury that prevented her following this career path. Today, she supports many of New York City’s charities, and is on the steering committee of the Alzheimer’s Association and the Board of the Parkinson’s Disease (Continued on page 70)

Our Cromer’s Country Market fried chicken almost cracks a tooth at first bite but opens up to a steamy soft surprise on the other end. We wash it down with Hampton Dairy Iced Tea—a summery, sugar staple that we can’t find anywhere west of exit 70. We eat, go back for a dip, lay around, trade candies, talk about tomorrow and the next day at Circle. Someone brings up the possibility of spending the day at the Mecox or Scott Cameron. We shrug. The bay is all we need. A wave runner speeds past and my younger boy cousin says he’s going to get one when he grows up. We tease him and decide to go back into the water. It’s nearing 5 o’clock now and the sun is just right. Some folks are packing up. We’re just getting started. A few of us race out towards the buoys but I lay back to float. With my head halfway in the water and my feet up, I can only hear the thud of my calm heartbeat. I look up into the endless sky as the water effortlessly shifts my body ever so slowly. I can smell a mix of SPF, sea life and the hint of gasoline. It all blends together in an aromatic bundle of summer’s best memories. I want to bottle it up and wear it all winter under my coat in New York. I tap my foot down and touch the soft beach floor and peek up for a second to find my bearings. I’m still close to shore and the view is just as incredible from here. I realize this must be what heaven is like and then remember mom promised us Conca D’Oro tonight. Maybe I’ve already arrived.

Twenty years later I’m back at Circle Beach with my young daughter. I watch her splash in the same water that my cousins and I called home. She and I walk the long, rocky shore at low tide and watch hundreds of hermit crabs run in front of our wet toes and quickly descend underground. It’s another bright day at our family’s quiet paradise and my mother, now a grandmother of six, unwraps her hot foils for the next generation. I sit back onto some of the same chairs we carried down all those years ago and take a bite of something she packed as I gaze across this majestic bay that has been the epicenter of so much of my happiness. Colored sails zip past us as new children splash and squeal with glee. Nothing has changed. Circle is the same beautiful beach from our childhood. The only difference is that now I may only have half of mom’s homemade lunch. Somewhere between those memorable summers and now, I found out about calories.

It All Comes Out in the Wash By DAvID LIoN RATTINeR

One of my biggest pet peeves in life is doing laundry. I don’t mind doing it, per se, I mind the fact that it uses up so much electricity. Ever since I was a kid, I enjoyed the act of doing laundry. That evolved into an actual need to do laundry. I can tell if a shirt has been worn just once. If it has, I feel this indescribable need to put it in the laundry basket and do a load.



I put my gym clothes back in my bag, then attempted to cleverly hang them inside my car with the window open. They would dry quickly in the sun, I reasoned, and they wouldn’t smell. This entire operation worked flawlessly for three days, and I started to feel like I had discovered a new way to live (and save that electricity). The only problem was my socks, which I stuffed at the bottom of my bag. As far as I know, there are no socks out there made out of bathing suit material. I remember when I used to work at the beach in the summertime and almost never wore a T-shirt. I basically lived in my bathing suit during the day and would shower off at the beach. It was very “off-the-gridish.” This little

system I had at the gym brought me back to that, and I saw no real problem with it until I began to realize that there was no way I could account for the stinky gym socks, outside of throwing them in the garbage. I could not bear the idea of my gym socks, uncleansed, lingering in my car during the day. I attempted, on day three, to wear my gym socks as my work socks. This is not recommended. My dream in life, at the current moment, anyway, is for somebody to make a pair of shoes that you can wear to the gym that are not flip-flops, but are waterproof and can be worn without socks and can pass the “shoes are required” rule that all gyms have. Unless this happens, all of my efforts have been in vain.
















EAST HAMPTON STUDIO 75 Industrial Rd Wainscott, NY 11975

As I’ve grown older, one of my favorite areas in which to spend my free time is the gym. But a big problem with the gym is that clothes acquire a certain odor after going just once. I’ll get on the treadmill or the bench or that devil’s machine known as the Stairmaster, work up a sweat, immediately get annoyed that my clothes are dirty, take a shower and head to work. I’ll leave the clothes in my car, which does not have an air-freshening effect, especially in the heat, and then I’ll go home and put them in the wash. This year, however, I’ve noticed that a lot of the guys at the gym wear clothing by Under Armour, which has shirts and shorts made of a light material that is similar to a bathing suit. I recently bought a shirt from Nike made out of similar material, and last week I got an idea. What if I went to the gym in a bathing suit and this shirt, and then showered in my clothes after a workout? Would this work? For three days straight, I wore a bathing suit and my Nike shirt, and at the end of my workout I took a shower, and washed my bathing suit and shirt in the shower as well. The material is light enough to air-dry if I squeeze out the water, and there’s a machine at the gym that’s designed for bathing suits that gets them dry.

I studied them in school. My first school was Liceo Artistico and then at the Academy of Fine Arts where I learned about frescoes and mosaics. I was captivated by the Italian Renaissance and drawing from life. What else captivated you as a student? When we were young, we wanted to change the world. We wanted to invent modern ways of doing things. We were passionate about Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Abstract Expressionism. I also loved studying film when I went to the Italian Center of Cinematography. We learned about filmmakers who had nothing in their hands, who invented themselves, like Fellini and De Sica.

his week’s cover artist, Giancarlo Impiglia, is a big believer in history and aesthetic legacy. He’s not only passionate about his early influences in Italy where he was born but also about a desire to leave a personal signature on his work. As he indicates in his book Paintings For the Queens and Collected Works, artists must hold on to their identity, style and vision with a sense of continuity. Impiglia describes his art in the book as a “sublime illusion, and artists must hold on to their illusions in order to produce their work.” This statement rings true when we consider his recurring unrealistic style that combines abstraction with Cubist-like images. Yet “illusion” may also signify his theme: the unreality of life that his characters experience. your cover image, “Napa Carabiniers,” is not like your abstract style that you are associated with. It’s more realistic, but the figures still are faceless, like your signature work. How did the painting come about? The grape pickers are faceless because they are anonymous, and also because I wanted to stress that nature is more important than the people working in the vineyards. I had an exhibit in Napa, California, at the Robert Mondavi Winery, and a collector from Alabama was there and commissioned me to do the painting. He was a wine collector, too.

Tell me about your family. I met my wife, Nina, first in Rome. Then I moved to New York in the early 1970s and ran into her when she came to a club I was playing music in. We happened to live near each other and didn’t know it. Then we moved to Rome for a few years and then came back to the States. My son Christopher is a writer and wrote an epic poem, The Song of the Fall, about the defense of Constantinople. He’s studying for his masters in Creative Writing at the New School. My other son, Thomas, is an architect in London, designing buildings and furniture. How were they influenced by your interests and art? They grew up in a certain environment, surrounded by history and art, and we traveled a lot. They developed an interest in creativity, meeting interesting people, like poets, artists, even business and sports people. We went all over. Now they go themselves; to Iceland three years ago. They made a documentary there. How much attention do you pay to the art market? I don’t pay too much attention to what’s going on on the outside. Being an artist, I am free to do what I want. Free to decide on my own, not be influenced by art trends, like installations. I stick to my colors and brushes and paint.

I asked Margo what she loved most about being out here and she said it is a place where everyone can relax, especially her husband. She loves to cook and entertain. “Truth is, I never know who John is going to bring home for dinner. It could be three people or it could be 30. So I’m always ready for 30.” Running for mayor, John Catsimatidis proposed that high schools in New York City offer non-college degrees in such things as electrical work, plumbing and steel work. He says “I think we owe it to our youth to teach them how to make a living and earn the American dream.” He also wants the older men in these trades—a 64-year-old electrician, for example—to be empowered to teach the kids what they know. This proposal was recently embraced by Mayor Bloomberg. John wants to bring the World’s Fair to New York City in 2015, just as Mayor LaGuardia did in 1939 and Mayor Lindsay did in 1964. He is a supporter of safety on our streets and safety against terrorism and is an admirer of NYC Police Chief Ray Kelly. He wants to offer incentives to bring more computer jobs to “Silicon Alley” in the meatpacking district of Manhattan. John does not think it matters that he run on one party line or another. He quotes Mayor LaGuardia. “It’s not about being a Democrat or Republican. It’s about being a New Yorker.”

Baby-Faced on Shelter Island By SALLy FLyNN

“John, if you’re trying to manage the timing of new pregnancies on the Island, I advise you to skip the tequila.” “Do you think it would make a difference?” “About nine times out of ten, John. Nine times out of ten.” (Meanwhile, at the North Ferry) “What squares did you get on the pool?” “What pool?” “The baby pool for Janet. It’s her third kid, we’ve got a pool going on whether she’ll have the kid in the hospital, at home or on the boat.” “Has that ever really happened? Has anybody been born on the ferry?” “Born? I don’t know. Conceived, sure. But born? I don’t think so.”

At long last the royal baby is born, and England’s monarchy is secured for the next three generations. The pregnancy was watched almost as closely as they are watched on Shelter Island, with the same attention to lineage as well. “Janet’s pregnant?” “Yes. She’s due in August.” “Oh Louise, she had better let the north ferry guys know in advance so she can skip the line if she’s in labor.”

“We got three girls due in August?” “And five due in September, John.” “Why do they bunch up like that? Can’t we do some kind of planning on this island? No more than two women due a month. Don’t they realize we put ourselves on high alert for them? And why do they always bunch up in September?” “Child births peak nationwide in September John, nine months after New Year’s Eve.” “Well, maybe they can get away with that on the mainland, but I say we organize a ‘Let the Fire Crew Plan Your Pregnancy’ campaign.” “The title might need a little work, John.” “We’ll throw a cocktail party to launch the campaign, you know, say it with tequila.”

It might not be royal, but it sure is cute!

“Of course they know—this is Shelter Island— who doesn’t know she’s pregnant? We’ve got six pregnancies on the Island this summer. The North Ferry guys always get you on the boat first if you’re in labor. They don’t want to deliver a baby on the boat. They’d have to punch an extra ticket for the kid, the mother would probably ask one of them to drive the car for her to get off the ferry, it would really disrupt their routine.” “What if the baby is born after midnight, after the ferry shuts down, Louise? Lots of babies are born at night you know, and like the old bible passage says, ‘As ye sow, so shall ye reap.’” “First off, you know the top EMTs can call the ferry any time to transport a woman in labor and if she doesn’t make it, the EMTs at the fire station can certainly deliver a baby.” “That’s right, they have that Jaws of Life thing.” “Um, well I suppose in an extreme case they might use that.” “Who’s the baby related to, Louise?” “A typical Island pedigree. It would be related to all the Island families from A to M on its mother’s side and all the families from N to Z on its father’s side.” “I know what you mean, Louise, whenever I fill out the ‘Who To Call In Event of Emergency’ card for my kids at school, it reads like a who’s who on Shelter Island. Do you know what she’s going to name it?” “If it’s a girl, she’s thinking of Mary or Patricia. That covers six aunts, three great aunts, and one great grandmother. If it’s a boy, she’s thinking of John Michael, and that covers eleven uncles and cousins, and both grandfathers.” (Meanwhile, at the firehouse…)

Singin’ in the East End Rain July is usually the best weather month of the season. June can be chilly, and August can bring hurricanes. July is perfect. So what’s the deal this year? We’ve seen weeks of impossibly hot and humid conditions and by rain worthy of Noah’s Ark. I’m writing this from Palo Alto. The weather here is spectacular, but I’ll try not to rub it in. Rainy weather on the East End poses unique challenges. The roads are already choked with traffic. There are limited movies, indoor activities, and restaurants. And with East Hampton Bowl officially closed, the situation is dire indeed. Here’s an idea: why not stay home and do karaoke? Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. Been there, done that. So ’90s. The equipment is clunky and expensive. The songs are lame. Guess what? All those excuses are lame. Thanks to the magic of the smart phone, and the app store, you can spend these rainy Saturdays making sweet music with your friends and family. Here are some ideas: The Game For those of you with console systems such as Xbox or Wii, there are lots of karaoke games worth checking out. Many are branded with songs from popular TV shows and movies, like Glee. If you’re tone deaf like me, try Def Jam Rapstar—a hip-hop/rap version of karaoke, with no “singing” required. Then there’s a game called Wii Karaoke U. A phenomenon in Asia, this game is coming to Europe and rumored to be coming to the States for download on the new HD Wii U system. Wii Karaoke U is popular for several reasons. First, you can compete live against other Wii users from around the world, in real time. Pretty cool. Even cooler: you can create this little dancing avatar character to represent you as your virtual performer. You can purchase costumes, props and other gear for your karaoke pal. Another interesting fact: Wii Karaoke U is free to download; you only pay by the hours you play. This might not seem like a big deal, but in the world of console games, where it’s always been about paying money upfront for your content, this is a big change. The App What if you don’t own a console system? Are you supposed to sit there on the couch, with your bored, poorly behaved children, humming a tune and wishing you could belt out a Britney Spears or Donna Summer classic to lighten the mood and save your marriage? Have no fear. There are several good apps that can instantly turn your smart phone into a connected karaoke booth. RedKaraoke is quite popular and highly rated. The app is free to download and comes with several basic tracks, but you’ll need to purchase song credits to access the best tunes and freshest beats. You also need to sign up for an account, which takes time and is slightly annoying. Overall, the karaoke experience is fun. You can adjust size and speed of the lyrics on your

The Big Things Mean So Much... If “it’s the little things in life that mean so much,” what about the really small stuff? I’m thinking about the many small celebrations that can happen in a week, or even a day, on the East End. On Fridays after work I often shoot over to the Hayground Farmers Market in Bridgehampton to pick up some Gula Gula empanadas and fresh bread and a side of what’s-in-season-this-week.

Last Friday I started thinking about my visit to this farmers market early in the day. As much as I’m into Gula Gula’s seasonal empanadas (i.e. Balsam Farm corn and onion, yum!) and the Indian potato ones rock my world—my fallback artisanal empanada is the vegetarian greens empanada. The greens are always cooked just My tomatoes this week so, very lightly spiced. The mix changes a bit depending on what

greens look the best to owner Luchi Masliah on the given week—chards, kales, wild spinach—it’s all good. I developed a distinct hankering for some greens empanadas in their delish wholewheat crusts, specifically one large and one small empanada. Only after I’d purchased them and dotted them with chimichurri sauce and strolled around the market eating them, did it occur to me that this was pretty raving weird—to get one large and one small of the same kind of empanada. Call me an empanada connoisseur—it did the trick. On to dessert, naturally, at Joe & Liza’s Ice Cream market stand. A scoop of Rum Raisin in a sugar cone was just the thing. Definitely a sugar cone moment. What’s this? GOLDEN raisins instead of the more common dark raisins? Hmmm, it’s lighter; it’s a nice counterpoint to the rum flavor. I support this decision. A stop at the Wölffer Estate table reminded me that their new batch of vinegar was released months ago—it was high time I snapped up a bottle—so I did. This year their vinegar is in a tall, cylindrical bottle, instead of a glass jug. I like it. And this rosé vinegar is precisely the right foil for the mix of Sun Gold, peach and heirloom tomatoes now ripening in my garden. Mixed with some good quality olive oil and black pepper—it’s summer perfection. Now that we’ve come this far together, dear reader, I’m going to come out of the closet on some foodie issues. Hold onto your hops, it’s about to get heretical. Bear in mind that my views are mine alone and don’t reflect those of this magazine or company. #1. Fresh pepper. I don’t always use freshlyground pepper. For some things I prefer the more laidback ground-and-stored-in-a-jar pepper. There are a few dishes for which I actually prefer a finely aged (some would say “degraded”) white pepper as a note. #2. EVOO. It’s overrated, it’s not for cooking and it’s not for every salad. I like it on bread and on endive, but most of the time I prefer some nice, friendly non-virgin of an olive oil. I don’t want the clean, pure olive flavor of EVOO overtaking all other flavors. #3. Flavored olive oils. Blech! Why inject a strong flavor into some unsuspecting fat? Why have I been making muffins with blood orangeflavored olive oil for months? Because someone gave me a bottle of the stuff and it’s too strong to use in anything else. Do you need to cover a nice salad in cotton candy in order to get it down? Of course not. #4. Red wine. I prefer white. There, I said it. Yes, I’m a food critic. Yes, I know my way around wine tastings and wine pairings. Yes, I know that red wine can age forever and develop and it has so much more going on. I. Don’t. Care. Of course, white wines don’t stand up to steak, but I don’t often choose to eat steak. I generally prefer a good, dry white, and I’m not alone. S. Dermont

When It Comes to Cars, What’s Old Is Hot! By BoB GeLBeR

There is a scene in the film Raiders of the Lost Ark where one of the archaeologists takes off his wristwatch and explains to another actor in the scene something like this: “Take this cheap watch and bury it in the sand and in 500 years when it’s found it could be worth a fortune.” The same can be said of many old cars built within the last 100 years. However, if they were buried in the sand, they probably would be seriously rusty.

Sure, I’ve had my Ford v-8s and love those old flatheads, and a love affair with Ferrari v-12s, who hasn’t? But why do car people like us admire old cars? There could be many reasons. I personally enjoy old cars because they bring back memories. I’ve collected both American and foreign cars, but prefer small cars rather than large. Why? Maybe it’s because of my early association with sports cars and racing. And practically, you have to admit, it’s much

easier to clean a small car. Small foreign cars are my preference because most of them have small engines and design details very different from American cars. Sure, I’ve had my Ford V-8s and love those old flatheads, and a love affair with Ferrari V-12s, who hasn’t? But those simple 1300 cc MGs motors and those charming and beautiful aluminum engines in Alfa Romeos were beauties to see and hear. Even the old VW air-cooled motor was something a little special. Hell, it was even at the wrong end of the car. Dr. Porsche souped it up and put the motor at the wrong end of another car, on which he put his name. Speaking of small motors, the sweetest Porsche motor ever made was the baby 2-liter engine in the original 1965 series 91I. It only produced 130 horsepower, but at 6,500 RPMs it sounded like a serious event.. I’m sure a lot of you out there have your reasons for liking old cars. Perhaps you’re a Ford guy because your dad taught you to drive in his Country Squire. Many Chevy guys probably had a poster of a Corvette on their bedroom wall when they were in high school, and now have a show quality ’63 Stingray nestled under a warm cover in their garage. Heck, you treat that thing better than yourself. The Ferrari, Porsche and Mercedes collectors are a different breed. They really don’t like old cars, but they do like expensive toys. As Zero Mostel said, “If you got it, flaunt it.” There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. If I ever “got it,” I would own every great Ferrari and

edsel, anyone?

Porsche and Benz ever built. If you want to make me jealous, pull up in a mint Ferrari 275 GTB-4 Longnose, or a Porsche Carrera Speedster or, especially, a Mercedes 300SLGullwing moving on Rudge center lock wheels. Oh, the 300SL doesn’t have to be “mint,” I’ll salivate over one in any condition. Then there are the car collectors who like oddball cars, like Fiats, Studebakers, Saabs and Edsels. Truth be told, these guys like odd cars because they themselves are probably a little off-center. You know, the guy on the block who painted his house blue. Or who dresses like a Serbian. They are the kind of folks you shy away from at car shows. Nice enough people, but you just don’t want to bond with them. So why old cars? Maybe they’re a lot like people. Interesting, each a little different and if not well taken care of, they show their age.

Southampton Hospital Named One of the Nation’s Most Wired Hospitals SouTHAMPToN: Southampton Hospital has been recognized as one of the “Most Wired” hospitals by Hospitals & Health Networks magazine in its July issue. Hospitals & Health Networks asked hospitals to answer questions regarding their IT/technology programs. Southampton President and CEO Robert S. Chaloner notes that “Healthcare information is a Board-level priority and a critical part of Southampton Hospital’s strategic plan...” Southampton was recognized as a “Most Wired” hospital because it “employs intrusion detection systems to protect patient privacy and security of patient data, and to check drug interactions and drug allergies when medications are ordered,” among other factors.

Is Long Island tap water the most delicious in the world?

eAST eND: They say you’re either an east Coast person or a West Coast person. Or, to put it another way, do you prefer to drink the best tap water in the country—the tap water that has made New York pizza and bagels internationally famous; or do you prefer to have a water sommelier curate a menu of gourmet bottled waters to pair with your meal? Yes, apparently water sommeliers are the wave of the future. At least in Los Angeles’ Ray’s and Stark, the farm-to-table restaurant serving the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The eatery launched its first water menu on Monday. Compiled by water sommelier Martin Riese, who was certified after taking a weeklong course at a school in Germany, the menu features 20 waters from 10 different countries. “All waters have unique tastes, and a lot of Americans think water is just water, but I completely don’t believe in that,” said Riese in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. “Water has so many interesting nuances.” It’s no small wonder the idea for a gourmet H2O tasting has taken off on the West Coast. “Smell this tap water. It smells like chlorine,” Riese confirmed, with a look of disgust. “As a restaurant person here in L.A., I can say I would never drink that water. When you have good food, good wine and good spirits, you don’t want to contaminate that with this water.” It’s well known that New York and Long Island do not share L.A.’s chlorinated predicament. And the Suffolk County Water Authority was voted to have the best tasting water on Long Island back in May. But, not to be outdone by L.A., the Hamptons has recently seen its first water sommelier, H. Twooh, come to the area. Gourmet water menus have also been offered in Europe, most famously in Paris. Though admittedly with less experience than Riese—Twooh only took a weekend-long training class offered at a spring in Poland—Twooh has found success with his menus. However, unlike its cosmopolitan counterparts, all menus include Long Island tap water, in addition to rarities like Antarctic glacial runoff and ostrich tears. “Despite the overwhelming amount of bottled water options—with a number of distinctive flavors—Long Island tap water is by far the most requested item on my menu,” says Twooh. He is pleased with the response, as Twooh recently launched a “take back the tap” campaign in an effort to curtail the amount of waste generated from plastic bottles. “The hardest thing is to get the different waters into the country,” said Riese in the Times. “For instance, I’m a huge fan of Tasmania rainwater, it’s completely cool, but I can’t get it here in the United States. So I had to find like waters that I can actually access.”

NORTH FORK EVENTS So much to see and do this weekend!


Drink in the whole North Fork!

By nicHOLAS cHOwSke


ver the last few years, the North Fork Wine Trail has grown to include more than 50 vineyards, wineries and tasting rooms. But which one was first? As it turns out, it’s Castello di Borghese Vineyard and Winery in Cutchogue, whose first vines were planted in 1973. The vineyard was originally owned by Louisa and Alex Hargrave, who ran it until 1999 when they sold it to Marco and Anne Marie Borghese. Castello di Borghese is an 80-acre farm, 40 of which are devoted to growing grapes, where the Borghese’s currently live. The vineyard is easy to spot on Route 48—you can’t miss the ramshackle flatbed truck stacked with old wine barrels spelling out “Pinot Noir.” The pinot grape is notoriously difficult to grow on Long Island, but Castello di Borghese seems to do it with ease. They work so well with it, in fact, that they use it in four different wines, including a white pinot, which happened to be the first wine I tasted on my visit. The 2012 Bianco di Pino Noir is a fruit-forward white made from skinned pinot noir grapes, fermented in stainless-steel barrels. This white has the consistency of a chardonnay with a peach-like flavor. It’s not overpoweringly sweet, but it tastes great—last year’s first run sold out in two months. The second wine I tasted was the 2012 Estate Riesling. This wine has a unique sour-apple flavor. It’s not overly sweet, but the residual sugar on the end leaves you with a flavor of apricot and sweet pear. Next on my flight was the 2012 Estate Chardonnay.

This steel-fermented white has a medium body that is crisp and refreshing. It has a bright flavor with apple and citrus notes and a hint of vanilla. The last white I tasted was the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc. This oaked white has a lot of citrus notes along with a bit of lemon zest. It’s a very light and refreshing white wine with a dry, clean flavor that is perfect of a hot summer day. I made my way on to Castello di Borghese’s reds, and began with the 2008 Estate Reserve Pino Noir. The two other wines Castello di Borghese makes with their prized pinot noir grapes are a barrel-fermented pinot noir and a rosé. The 2008 Estate Reserve Pino Noir is done in the French Bordeaux style and is aged in vintage French oak barrels. This red has a lot black cherry notes and a spicy finish with a burst of cinnamon and tea. The next red I tried was the 2007 Merlot, which I was pleasantly surprised with. This merlot has cherry and plum flavors, and it is semi-dry, so it’s not overwhelming on the palate. The wine is also fairly light for a merlot, so it has a great drinkability. Following the merlot, it was on to the cabernets. The first I tried was the 2010 Cabernet-Franc. The cabernet-franc grape has done very well on Long Island. This deep red wine is layered with toasted oak, dark berry and vanilla notes on the nose, and has an earthy, almost herbal, spiciness that compliments its tart cherry and plum flavors. The second Cabernet on my list was the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve. This bold red is nearly purple in color and blossoms with cherry, chocolate

and currant flavors. This wine will age dramatically. Castello di Borghese’s crown jewel, their 2007 Meritage, is a blend of these three reds. The merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon are perfectly balanced, creating layers of spice, dark and red berries and plum that come together for a delicate but complex finish. After every great tasting comes dessert, and mine was Allegra—the ice wine. This sweet wine, named for the Borghese’s daughter, is made from late-harvest chardonnay grapes that are handpicked at their peak sugar content and then flash-frozen. Allegra is thick, and sweet, with apricot fragrance and flavor. Visit Castello di Borghese at 17150 County Road 48, Cutchogue. 631-734-5111,

Women Winemakers Take Long Island! By deBBie SLevin


wo Women. Two Winemakers. Two Weddings. When every day is consumed with the land and the grape, it is no wonder that these two winemakers would each choose to be married amidst the vines that define their professional and personal lives. Perry Baiz is the fifth generation to work the farm, first established in 1640, at The Old Field Vineyard in Southold and was married there in mid-July to Zachary Bliss, a boat builder from Shelter Island. The guests were served wine she made with her mother, Ros. Kelly Urbanik will be married this autumn at Macari Vineyards in Mattituck, where she has been the winemaker for the past three years. She is marrying Rob Koch, a mechanical engineer who was raised there. Urbanik came to wine-making naturally—the third generation of an Italian family that settled in Napa Valley. “My grandpa had a little vineyard we used to take care of,” she says. “It was always part of our lives.”

The women all have one thing in common: Winemaking is their way of life. It’s their passion and vocation. Urbanik went to college at nearby UC Davis. “I didn’t want to go too far from home,” she says, “I was going to play volleyball but at end of freshman year… I took the Intro to Wine class. I realized this could be what I do.” After graduation, she took an

internship In Burgundy, France. “As the harvest started, I moved into the winery, that’s when I decided I wanted to be a winemaker.” Baiz went to school for environmental biology while her mother was making wine. “I went off and taught scuba diving and travelled,” she says. “My parents never pressured me, they let me work in the vineyard for however much I wanted. Mom was in the winery, so it was a natural flow… I decided that this job rocked!” Ros Baiz, Perry’s mom, had a circuitous route to winemaking, with stints in television (Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood,) studying nursing at 40, antiques and the ministry. But the land called to her. Marrying Christian Baiz in 1984, they lived in Westchester but came often to the family farm where he had a small plot. “His was the second planting [on Long Island]… he got the vines from Louisa [Hargrave],” she says. “About 10 years later … he would sit out there in his vines—they were his mistress!” she laughs. But winemaking is not easy. Baiz credits local wine men Bob Henn, who worked for Pindar at the time, Howard Dickerson and Sam McCullough for teaching her most of what she knows. “Bob took me into the fields and asked me ‘what are the vines telling you. I want you to feel the wine.’” “I am more of a biologist than a chemist,” says Perry, who cares deeply about protecting the vineyard. “We have always had sustainable practices. That is second nature to us, and the right thing to do.” Urbanik, now a long way from California, has made her home on the North Fork. “The Macaris are very passionate about the vineyard and the winery… Its not just a business, its their life.” Her decision to be married at there was easy. “They treat me like one of the family. I never worked somewhere where I felt so

appreciated. It’s a good feeling.” The women all have one thing in common: Winemaking is their way of life. It is their passion and vocation. “I think I just surprise myself by loving it as much as I do,” says the elder Baiz. “It’s the quiet of being out there… I look down the long row. I see the sparkling water. There is this energy out there... between the trees and the vines and the water…” And it has taught them life lessons, as well. “What I have learned,” she says, “is that vines are very resilient, you can’t worry, nature is not perfect. You have to have an enormous amount of patience… You have a crop that is sitting out there, hanging heavy. The fruit is gorgeous... and then the rain comes, wind comes, fungus comes... Really? You’ve done everything right, and it just didn’t work.” But these women are resilient, too. They will sit down with a glass of wine when the work is done and plan for next year.

It Takes a Lot of Beer to Make a Good Wine... By Lenn tHOmPSOn

There is a saying in the wine industry that “It takes a lot of beer to make good wine.” Vineyard and winery crews work hard. And at the end of a long day in the field or in the cellar, many turn to beer rather than wine to quench their thirst. I don’t work at a winery— though I’ve been known to enjoy a pint or three with those that do—but I’ve come up with my own version of this saying: It takes a lot of beer to get through a hot, muggy Long Island summer. You’ll find wine in my glass nearly every day— mostly with meals, although beer has a place on my dinner table too. I’m a craft beer guy too. Typically, I’ll reach for a pale ale or IPA—the hoppier the better. But in the summer, when you’re looking for refreshment, even a hop head like me likes to look elsewhere for lower-alcohol beers that hit the spot after mowing the lawn or chasing my kids around the yard/beach/wherever. And of course, I like to drink local when I’m drinking beer. At least much of the time. We won’t get into the debate over what “local beer” means in terms of where the ingredients are brewed or who brews them or where. That’s a complex and intricate topic better argued beyond the 700 words of this weekly column. Instead, here are five of the local beers I’ve been enjoying the most of this summer:

(and maybe even written) not-sonice things about this beer in the past, when I’ve found it too sweet; too syrupy. This year’s batch nails the balance—you can still taste the orange blossom honey used during brewing, but it doesn’t stand out. This is a tasty, floral-scented golden ale that is refreshing and ideally suited to post-lawn mower duty. Rocky Point Artisan Brewers Hefeweizen. Now to probably the most obscure beer on this list— from one of Long Island’s smallest nanobreweries. I’ve known the guys behind RPAB since well before they opened to the public (one

Southampton’s double white

is a fellow beverage writer who used to work with me a bit) and they live and brew just a couple miles from my home. While so many are going for bigger, hoppier, more alcohol styles in the beer world, RPAB focuses on the classic, largely German and Belgian styles. This hefe— available on draft at a handful of bars, restaurants and growler fill stations—is classically German in style. Unfiltered and opaque in your glass, it’s yeasty, bright and refreshing. I love it so much that I served a keg of it at my last big summer BBQ. It didn’t last the night.

Southampton double white Ale. It’s hard not to consider this a classic Long Island summer beer at this point. Though it isn’t the lowest-alcohol white beer around at 6.5% abv, it’s readily available, available in bottle (unlike many of the beers on this list) and is like a classic Belgian wit ale on steroids— more citrus, more spice, etc.

It takes a lot of beer to get through a hot, muggy Long Island summer. I like to drink local when I’m drinking beer. Port Jeff Brewing carolina common Ale. For the most part, I don’t care for “fruit beers”—beers with fruit pulp or flavoring added—nothing beyond a little citrus peel, please. But this newly released (only one batch) collaboration ale between Port Jeff Brewing and North Carolina’s Foothill Brewing is an exception to my personal rule. Carolina peaches bring a certain fruity sweetness without being the dominant flavor. Any distinct peach flavor only peeks through at the end of the finish—in a refreshing way rather than a soda way. This one is only available for growler fills at the brewery, and they only made one batch. Get it soon before it’s gone. Blue Point Brewing company white iPA. I’m actually not keen on this “<insert color here> IPA” trend in beer these days. Black IPAs are hoppy brown ales or porters. Red IPAs are hoppy red ales. Don’t get caught up in the branding or think that these are new styles! Similarly, a white IPA is really just a hoppy white ale, but this one from Blue Point is one of my local favorites. It’ll please a crowd at a party while keeping hop heads like me coming back for more. Bonus—it’s available in cans, always a plus. Greenport Harbor Brewing Summer Ale. I’ve said

Mattebella Encourages Community Gardening Because she draws them to her with her welcoming spirit and generosity, Tobin’s friends and club members are willing to do the dirty work. Down on their knees on a beautiful weekend day, they toiled preparing beds and planting arugula, tomatoes, beets and over 100 brussels sprouts seedlings she started at her home in Westhampton. Sharon Goetchius, a retired Special Education teacher for Western Suffolk BOCES was in the garden most of the morning, hand-patting the soil into long, smooth hills awaiting lettuce seeds. “I had pizza at Grana [in Jamesport] and this wonderful wine from Mattebella. I asked the waitress where the winery was, and she said ‘you need to go.’ So we went right from there,” says Goetchius. “I love the wine and fell in love with [Christine]…I loved the whole atmosphere.” The garden started three years ago as three plots

f you feed them, they will come. And dig. And plant. And weed. And harvest. And passing around some sangria made from the vines right over your shoulder doesn’t hurt, either. Christine Tobin, owner, with her husband Mark, of Mattebella Vineyards in Southold, understands hospitality and building a loyal client base. But her shared organic garden isn’t a gimmick to increase business. “Chris Tobin is vital and to spend time around her is nourishing. That’s why I came,” says Kevin Cahill, a wine club member, ardent farmer, and artist who runs a boat for the Peconic Bay Scallop Project. “The human side of her is as open as you can get. I don’t drink [but] when I go there, the sort of people I meet are the most diverse, likeable and interesting people…”

designed to bring in beneficial insects for the grape vines. “I did it myself with some kids and friends from Florida,” where the Tobins used to live full-time. “Unbeknownst to me,” says Tobin, “my friend had dropped a whole box of seeds throughout the garden and all summer my garden was covered in pumpkins. I was handing them out at the vineyard.” When local people would come in for a bottle of wine, Tobin sent them home with some of the produce from the garden. “I asked what they were having for dinner,” she says, “then gave them a little basil, some arugula for the salad.” During last year’s harvest event, club members picked grapes with the staff and then enjoyed a collective lunch. “Everyone loved it, so I did a series of impromptu harvests. People came. I was really surprised.” But Kahill knows how the Tobins do it. “They are enthusiastic and interested and listen intently. It’s a funny thing. I am reminded of Huckleberry Finn, when Tom Sawyer starts painting the fence. ‘This is so great, everyone wants to join in.’ And she feeds you!” he says. And her food is delicious. Don’t miss her homemade fig jam, which she pairs with local cheeses for tastings of their wine, as well as her brownies. She also makes a mean corn bread. This year, Tobin sent out an email about the spring planting and had an overwhelming response. “People loved the idea,” she says. “[They] want to dive in and be involved. And they all come away with an appreciation of how hard farming is, and develop a connection to the place.” “I live and breath gardening,” says Goetchius. “And I thought that doing a community project like this would be so much fun... Everybody gets that good feeling and the wine is good!” Goetchius and her husband are particularly fond of Mattebella’s Famiglia, 2008 Chadonnay. “Most evenings, at 5 p.m., I like to sit by my pool with my husband. We are having cheese and probably sliced peaches and that wine. That to me, is the epitome of the summer!” Mattebella offers 30 minute walking tours and an opportunity to see the new garden on Saturdays at 11 a.m. Visitors will learn about the different grapes, tasting how the flavors vary between the different clones of their six varieties of chardonnay. The vineyard tour with a flight is $17 and includes six full tastings. Enjoy. See you at the harvest.

10 Wines You Won’t Find at Société du Vin cardboard box with flavors like Sweet Merlot, Sweet Chardonnay and Chablis.

By OLiveR PeteRSOn


eslie Alexander’s ultra-exclusive Société du Vin wine club is opened in Bridgehampton this summer, welcoming anyone willing to pay the $50,000 entry fee and $8,000 in annual dues. At least four times per year, the club will serve up some fancy vintages for esteemed guests. These are not among them. 10. Franzia Box wine Franzia proudly calls itself “The World’s Most Popular Wine,” and why not? It comes in massive quantities, easy-pour boxes and a variety of tantalizing flavors. Their “Vintner Select” wines go down smooth and stay “true to the varietal flavor.” Instead of “the overpowering flavor of oak,” enjoy the essence of plastic, colostomy-style bags and

that matters, as the ladies can attest. 7. kosher wine It’s not just for Passover anymore. Right when you thought Manischewitz wine couldn’t get any better, they added Cherry and Blackberry as companions to the original Concord Grape flavor. Any wine that shares its flavor with the better half of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich has to be good. 6. counterfeit Playboy wine This unique treasure from Bucharest, Romania is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. It’s unclear what type of grape is used or what region the wine is from, but each bottle of “emot10ns” features a different Playboy playmate with the month and year they appeared in the magazine. Will your fellow sommeliers catch how the makers of this classic replaced the “I” and “O” in “emotions” with the number 10? That’s because each girl pictured is a “10.” Witty ain’t it?

3. two-Buck chuck [charles Shaw chardonnay] Owned by Trader Joe’s, Charles Shaw’s California Chardonnay proved that wine doesn’t have to be expensive to be good. At $2 a bottle, this white changed the game and was henceforth called “TwoBuck Chuck” by its many admirers. It’s fruity, uncomplicated and meant to be drunk young (and often), according to the maker. Unfortunately, it’s just doesn’t cost enough for most East End oenophiles.

2. cisco Another fortified delight, Cisco is the Cadillac of hobo wines. A thick and syrupy libation somewhere between Robitussin and a melted Slurpee (the one where you mix every flavor), this stuff is famous for causing blackouts, memory loss and belligerent outbursts for most connoisseurs. Now in eight fruity flavors—Black Cherry, Blue Raspberry, Orange Pineapple and Peach among them—Cisco “has been a consumer favorite for years,” says the makers at Canandaigua winery in Canandaigua, NY. “Strong, yet sweet and fruity, Cisco offers a high-quality flavor selection to satisfy every palate at affordable prices.” All thanks to Coley King, the Director of Winemaking at this New York winery. Yes, that’s right, they are winemakers at a winery. 1. Baby mice wine Awww, how cute, right? Baby Mice Wine sounds adorable and great until you realize it actually contains baby mice. Made in Korea, this rice wine is a traditional health tonic perfect for the Hamptons epicure who has everything. Each of the 12 recentlyborn pinkies is drowned alive in the bottle, which is then left to ferment, allowing the baby mouse essence to infuse the clear saki-like spirit. You may want to drink this one through your teeth.

FiShER’S towER


A piece of town history.

For the whole family!

By lee meyer


s a fan of Southern-style comfort food (deep fried, indulgent, artery-clogging), I was very excited to hear about the opening of Lucky J’s in Montauk. A popular food truck and restaurant in Texas, the Lucky J’s menu offers several variations on one comfort food staple: chicken and waffles. You’d be forgiven if you haven’t thought of chicken and waffles as two foods that go together—it’s a Southern dish, to be sure—but one forkful of deep fried chicken on top of a waffle and drizzled (or smothered, depending on how you like it) with maple syrup and you’ll be hooked. I took my father, a foodie with an affinity for unconventional dishes, to the new eatery and we were pleased with the experience. Lucky J’s is a tiny restaurant in Montauk, not far from Gosman’s Dock, and we passed the building twice before finding it. Once we walked inside, though, my concerns that Lucky J’s was a glorified fast food joint were assuaged. The friendly waitress greeted us and told us to sit wherever we’d like, whether at the counter or at a table. We chose a table so we could have a little more room. To start, we both tried the Jamaican Jerk Slaw and Fried Pickle Chips. With various greens and radish, the Jerk Slaw sauce was sweet and tangy, with a little kick. I found it to be very refreshing in the summer heat. I’m not much of a pickle fan, but the batter was nice and tasty and the pickle was crunchy. Next, we shared the the Squawk and Cheese, a boneless chicken tender over macaroni

and cheese (don’t reach for the Tums yet, we’ve got a ways to go!). The macaroni and cheese was creamy and soft, and the chicken strip was nicely battered and soft. The flavors work well together. We were both impressed by the “Ms. M,” breakfast “Waffle Taco” with chicken, bacon and Swiss cheese. Lucky J’s is famous for their Waffle Taco; the soft, fluffy waffle acts as the “taco shell.” The savory bacon and Swiss cheese, along with the soft boneless chicken strip was overwhelming to look at, but surprisingly light. It was at this moment that my father noted that nothing we’d tried yet was greasy at all; everything was cooked just right and looked and tasted fresh. Finally, we tried the “2 x 2,” two pieces of fried chicken (boned) on top of waffles. The owner, Jason, suggested we pour some syrup over the dish, which we happily did. The fried chicken was crispy, tasty white meat, and the waffle was just right: a little crispy, but moist and soft inside. We drizzled some syrup over the dish, and the combination of the sweet syrup and the fried chicken nearly sent me over the edge. You haven’t lived until you’ve had fried chicken and maple syrup. Seriously. By the time my father and I were finished, we were more than satisfied. But we weren’t feeling overly stuffed or “food guilty,” as I often am when I’ve indulged in something delicious a little too much. I asked Jason about the batter on the fried chicken, and he mysteriously noted it was his “secret recipe.” Lucky J’s is open 24/7 for the summer. Jason noted that before Lucky J’s opened, 7-Eleven was the only

Restaurant Review: Lucky J’s

Chicken and waffles topped with jerk slaw

late-night food option in Montauk! The restaurant is busiest at night, and waffle tacos are sold all day and night. I can’t wait to go back and try the Brady, which is chicken and Swiss cheese doused in honey and hot sauce and wrapped in a waffle with bacon cooked into it. If you or your fellow diner is vegetarian, you can try the Grandma Andy, a waffle taco with Nutella, peanut butter, honey and bananas. Lucky J’s is highly recommended—I hope to go back there again soon. Lucky J’s is located at 440 West Lake Drive in Montauk and is open 24/7 through September.

Fisher’s Tower: Montauk’s Time Capsule real estate crash of 1929. Fisher would bring potential investors up to his office in the penthouse and let them survey the land from the 365° view, choosing their land from that vantage point. World War II activated Montauk as a military outpost and the building saw use as an officer quarters, as Osmers wrote about in his book.

By lisa tannenBaum


he story of Fisher’s Tower begins with Carl Fisher and the development of Montauk. Carl Fisher purchased the entire 9,000-acre Montauk peninsula in 1925 for $2.5 million. He intended to develop Montauk into the “Miami Beach of the North,” as he had successfully developed Miami Beach into a thriving resort community. He did that by developing roads and railway transportation to the formerly swampy Miami. In 1926, Fisher started to develop Montauk as a summer retreat for resort-goers. He began clearing roads and installing power lines to get the infrastructure built up to remake this backwater into a resort. In 1927, Fisher’s Tower was built. He kept building throughout the stock market crash of 1929, although his property was mortgaged against the Miami Beach development and eventually went bankrupt in 1932. He spent $12 million total but the resort failed to achieve the international success that Fisher hoped for. The Montauk Point project the tower at montauk at left, formerly Fisher’s tower went into receivership. Osmers referred me to Montauk librarian Robin By the end of 1932, Fisher had built the Montauk Yacht Club, Manor, Playhouse and Downs golf Strong who had additional information about the tower. She said that Fisher had built the same course, and the seven-story Fisher’s Tower. Tracking down information about Fisher’s Tower building in Miami Beach, whish was no longer was not easy. For the tallest, most prominent building standing, and that it was used as an administrative in the village, it sure leads an anonymous life on the building. She relayed the same story about Fisher internet these days. I started out by talking to Henry bringing potential buyers up to his penthouse office Osmers, the historian at the Montauk Lighthouse. He to view the land from a panoramic perspective. She gave me references from two of his books, American said that Richard T. Gilmartin, another real estate Gibraltar about Montauk’s role in World War II, and developer, later had his office in the building. And then she referred me to another East Ender On Eagles Beak, a broad history of Montauk. The building sat empty after Carl Fisher went who had an office in the building, the one and only bankrupt in 1932 from the stock market and resultant Dan Rattiner, founder of Dan’s Papers. She told me to

The Real Montauk Still Exists You just have to know where to look

call the building the “White Elephant” when I asked him about it, which I did. I got a reply to an e-mail requesting a time and a phone number to chat. Twenty minutes into the conversation, we had gotten to the end of the story of Rattiner and the White Elephant of Fisher’s Tower, because it was the only tall tower in town. The culmination of the story was that Rattiner rescued papers he had found during his time there—correspondance from 1938—when Fisher’s company last used the building. Six folders of letters were all that Rattiner could carry when he last went there in 1975, finding the building unlocked. He had heard that it was going to be converted into apartments, and rushed to save the last remnants of historical material. In 2000, Rattiner donated the documents to the Wilsonian Museum of Americana in Miami Beach. In 1960, Rattiner, while in college, had started a paper called The Pioneer that he was running during the summers. He got tired of working out of his parents’ house and asked the Montauk Improvement Society, the only tenant of the ground floor of the tower at the time, if he could use some space in the tower. Floors two through seven were vacant and frozen in time from 1938, with office furniture and filing cabinets left intact. The penthouse was still furnished with a bedroom set as the pied a terre of Carl Fisher. Rattiner took up an office on the second floor, stringing a phone wire on the outside of the buiding. There was no electricity, heat, water or lights, so when a typewriter salesman came to sell Rattiner an electric typewriter, there was nowhere to plug it in. A White Elephant indeed. Today, the building is divided into 21 luxury condominiums with views of the ocean and is called The Tower at Montauk, at 55 Euclid Avenue.

Singing (And Tapping!) In the Rain


he Gateway Playhouse continues its 2013 season with one of the greatest musicals of all time, Singin’ in the Rain. This romantic comedy, adapted from the 1952 movie of the same name, takes us on a hilarious journey with “Hollywoodland” residents Don Lockwood, Lina Lamont, Cosmo Brown and Kathy Selden. Don Lockwood, played by the dashing Jeremy Benton, is a silent film star and Lina Lamont is the (spoiled) starlet sidekick he is reluctantly attached to. Both are at a turning point in their careers. Technology in film is advancing and soon moviemakers will find a way to put image and sound together. The conundrum there—Lina’s nailson-a-chalkboard voice. Yes, it is that bad. Kudos to Gretchen Bieber for portraying a fantastically annoying Lina—I loved and hated every shrill sound that came out of her mouth! When Bieber sings as Lina, it’s obvious she’s covering up a knockout voice that we only hear glimmers of, right underneath the surface of Lina’s screeching. Funnyman Cosmo Brown, played by John Scacchetti, is Lockwood’s boyhood best friend. Although Lina (with the influence of their studio Monumental Pictures) fancies herself in love with Don, he cannot tolerate her and only does so to keep the peace. After the premier of Lockwood and Lamont’s The Royal Rascal, Don escapes his fans and finds himself on a bench with a surprised Kathy Selden. Kathy, a

Sculpture Garden at Guild Hall: Joel Perlman Perlman’s materials and configurations catch our eye immediately, the bronze and steel shapes are seemingly hard-edged (literally and figuratively) yet often they are lyrical as well, including works that are also in the Wasserstein Gallery inside Guild Hall itself. What’s also arresting is the fact that some of the sculptures are shapes that Perlman cut and then welded together. This means of construction gives the pieces a strength and presence going beyond their lyrical quality: such contradiction is another outstanding aspect of Perlman’s

By marion woLBerG-weiss

Barbara Jo Howard

The Sculpture Garden at Guild Hall is a hidden oasis, showing noteworthy works of diverse styles and materials. Situated at the back of the building, it’s a pleasure to experience the ongoing sculpture exhibits, especially in the open air. Although some viewers might not realize that there’s such a garden on Guild Hall’s grounds, it’s doubly pleasant to come upon the unique shapes as we walk around the premises. The current show by Joel Perlman is no exception where diversity is a key element. work by Joel Perlman

art and craft. Speaking of “construction,” it’s obvious that Perlman was influenced by Russian Constructivism; according to some observers, his work during the 1970s also shared a commonality with Minimalism (this critic thinks of sculpture by Louise Nevelson, in this regard, although her materials are different). Another reference perhaps may even be Perlman’s 1998 work, “High Spirit,” which reminds this critic of the new World Trade Center building. A quick look at the 104-story structure from a few miles away shows how the clouds engulf its spiral as tiny lights twinkle on its surface. Of course, Perlman’s “High Spirit” was not influenced by the new World Trade Center edifice, but both configurations evoke the same feeling and have a similar shape. The effects of both pieces are stunning.

work by Joel Perlman

While such references all go to demonstrate that Perlman’s work has a legacy deriving from fascinating sources, the current exhibit features pieces that convey other aspects. For example, his circular forms that meld into each other signify continuity and a sense of eternity. His circles within circles suggest the same themes. Perlman’s small sculptures inside the Wasserstein Gallery continue the circular motif, but they are more decorative, suggesting patterns and real objects. For example, “Bronze Cyclone” recalls a ride at Coney Island. Another piece, “Tribeca,” evokes the image of a drum. “Green Space” looks like a particularly dangerous ride at a carnival. Such observations are not meant to be critical of Perlman’s images. Rather, the shapes suggest that he has so captured our imagination that we can’t help going along for the ride.


Joel Perlman’s sculpture will be on display until Oct. 14, 2013 at East Hampton’s Guild Hall, 158 Main Street.

New Novel Explores Truths in Family Dynamics By Joan Baum

The Arabic expression Bukra fil mish mash mash, loosely translated as when pigs fly, or forget it, unless you believe the impossible can happen, was the inspiration, Jessica Soffer says, for her debut novel, Tomorrow There Will be Apricots (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). Also translated as “tomorrow the apricots will bloom,” the proverb takes on a more promising connotation as the narrative develops, suggesting that longed-for hope just might trump despair, at least in fantasy. Such is the strength of Soffer’s moving, beautifully conceived and written quest for family that the reader hopes that faith and love will prevail over a history of pain and adversity. It’s exemplary of the author’s professionalism that though her characters move toward some peace and understanding, their deep inner conflicts are left unresolved.

As each character inhabits the theme of longing for family, the reader readjusts perspective, though it’s only at the end when full truths emerge. Other characters include the lonely, sensitive 19-year Blot, who works in a bookstore, on whom Lorca has a crush. He, too, has a troubled life, but he reaches out to Lorca, unaware for a while of the extent of her self-mutilations. In the Victoria chapters, Dottie, an upstairs neighbor, first seen only as a busybody, takes on greater complexity as well. It’s impressive the way Soffer crafts so many figures who enhance the theme but keeps the focus on her quartet—Lorca,

Victoria, Joseph and Blot whose individual discordant sounds gel into an unexpected, deeply affecting harmony. Masgouf, a fish dish originally prepared on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates, and grilled with tamarind and lemon and other spices, may be gone but it’s not forgotten. The recipe, along with others for Shakrlama, a dessert the author recalls from Passover dinners, and Bamia, a tomato and okra-based spice dish often eaten with meat dumplings, are included at the end, all “From the Kitchen of Jessica Soffer.” Food for thought, indeed.

As each character inhabits the theme of longing for family, the reader readjusts perspective, but it’s at the end when full truths emerge. Soffer, who has an MFA from Hunter College and teaches fiction at Connecticut College, has been published in numerous periodicals, among them Vogue, The New York Times and Granta. The girl at the center of Apricots appeared first in a short story about a highly sensitive, intelligent, lonely teenager who continually cuts and burns herself because of the lack of a relationship with her mother, “a kind of villain,” but Lorca’s evolution in the novel also has to do with an “image” that popped into Soffer’s head one day—“a young girl and an old woman cooking together, barefoot.” Although the book is on the longish side, it might be said that it’s extended dilation on the theme of yearning out of loneliness—an adolescent girl’s for her mother’s love, and an older woman’s for her dead husband and for a child she gave up 40 years earlier—gives the story the breadth it needs to advance the theme in subtly tragic and humorous ways, and make it credible. Such things can happen, if the need is strong enough: strangers separated by a wide age difference come together because of a traditional but elusive national Iraqi dish—Masgouf—and they come to believe, they want to believe, they are related in other ways as well. Lorca, a precocious 14-year-old (Williams Sonoma has the best knives for cutting herself), named by her father for the Spanish poet and playwright Federico Garcia Lorca, wants desperately to learn how to make Masgouf because she has heard her mother say she loved it. Victoria, in her 80s, is mourning the recent loss of her husband Joseph, who was her “all in all.” Lorca and Victoria alternate first-person chapters, each infusing their stream of consciousness with imagery about food. Both are excellent cooks. Joseph, with whom Victoria once ran a well regarded restaurant—one of the specialties was Masgouf—also has chapters, but these are in the third person. Each chapter refines what’s come before, with every character expressing the need, the desire and the anguished passion for affection, particularly young Lorca. Her beautiful, brilliant mother, narcissistic and cruel, a celebrated chef who has cast off her “wimp” of a husband, is planning to ship Lorca off to boarding school to deal with her problem.

Long Island Center Makes Learning Fun By anDrea aurichio


hen Joan Rivers holds court on her television program The Fashion Police, she says, “This dress is so ugly it is probably good at math” and everyone laughs. People think science is boring and consider it the provenance of geeks and nerds. A visit to the Long Island Science Center in Riverhead will change your mind forever. You’ll become a really cool geek with an understanding of the world enhanced by scientific knowledge. You’ll learn how and why things work and discover “stuff” you never thought about before. It will change your life, or at least, make you look at the world in a more informed way. You can have a birthday party at the Center and learn to make silly putty, also known as phlubber. If you are not that scientific, you can learn how to

make ice cream and why the process produces a smooth textured substance instead of an ice cube. You girly girls can have a Spa party and learn how to make lip balm. Boys are allowed at the Spa parties too, but rarely show up. All this and more awaits you in the wonderful world of science at the Center in Riverhead. You can learn about birds, the environment and how a lot of things work and get merit badges if you are into Scouting. That’s right, Cubs and Brownies, the Center has a long list of programs designed to help you get those colorful badges that look so impressive on your sash. “Science is all around us all the time,” Michele Pelletier, the Executive Director of the Center said. The Center, in a vintage building at 11 West Main Street for the last 10 years, is in the process of relocating. The building is in contract to be sold

The concept for the Center was a manifestation of Gibbs’ belief in hands-on, tactile education where students learn by doing. to developers planning to raise the structure and build a luxury apartment house complex on the river front property. “We are moving to a larger facility,” Pellieter said. The new center will be larger, making it possible to accommodate school groups and visitors at the same time. The move to a larger building reflects the growth and popularity of the Science Center, which began in a small classroom in Shoreham/Wading River presided over by the Center’s founder and first Executive Director Delia Gibbs, who was affiliated with the Shoreham Wading River Museum for years.

Gibbs retired last year after more than a decade at the helm. The concept for the Center was a manifestation of Gibbs’ belief in hands on, tactile education where students learn by doing. Gibbs took a broad view of science education. Her vision went beyond a simple chemistry experiment or a day of bird watching. Gibbs wanted to train students to “lead locally” and “compete globally with programs designed to encourage students to think outside the box and to question the world around them.“Science is everywhere,” Pelletier said. “It is part of everyday life. We are talking on the phone right now,” she said, “and that is technology and science.” Pelletier, a former schoolteacher and farm manager is a graduate of Greenport High School and Cornell University. She decided to return to the East End after years of living and working Upstate. “I miss the water and the nautical environment,” Pelletier said. When Gibbs stepped down and the Directorship was opening up, Pelletier, who had been teaching part time in Mattituck/Cutchogue school district submitted her resume. The Center offers internships to middle school, high school and college students interested in getting involved. Volunteers are welcomed, too. “Science is interesting and it is fun,” Pellieter said. “It is not about memorizing the Periodic Table of Elements. Einstein said never commit anything to memory that is readily available.” There are a lot of us who wish our high school chemistry teachers thought that way.

Stan Goldberg Past, Present, Future By Lee meyer


hen I spoke with iconic comic book artist and Hamptons resident Stan Goldberg, he had just come back from the Southampton Cultural Center, where he had been practicing his modeldrawing skills. At first, I was surprised—why would a legendary artist like Goldberg need practice? After all, the 81-year-old Goldberg has been in the business since he was 17 and working at Marvel Comics under the equally iconic writer Stan Lee. But Goldberg has a different philosophy; although he hasn’t worked for Archie Comics in several years, he has worked consistently and believes that it’s always good to practice. Goldberg hasn’t slowed down yet, and his life after Archie is brimming with activity. “I started with Marvel when I was 17,” Goldberg marvels. “I joke with Stan [Lee] that I was 17 and he was 27 back then, and we laugh.” Lee, who is credited with co-creating characters like Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, the Incredible Hulk and more, worked with Goldberg for many years and helped him get his start in the comic book world. “Stan tried different ways [of creating comics]; he used the ‘Marvel Method’ with me, which had no dialogue,” Goldberg explains. The Marvel Method, which is still used today by several creators, involves the artist working from a detailed outline developed by the writer, with the writer writing in the dialogue afterward. Goldberg was responsible for a ton of heavy lifting in his early years at Marvel. “I did the coloring for Fantastic Four for the first six years,” he says, noting that it was time-consuming but immensely rewarding to bring that world to life. Fun fact: Goldberg did a Marvel/Archie crossover called Archie Meets the Punisher! Goldberg worked on Archie for 40 years, drawing the adventures and love triangle of Archie, Betty and Veronica. His final project for Archie turned out to be a six-issue special series, Archie which Archie marries Betty in one story and Veronica in another. “Those six issues became my swan song at Archie,” Goldberg sighs. The circumstances surrounding Goldberg’s exit from the company are a bit murky; Goldberg cites behind-the-scenes changes as what ultimately ended his time there, and he admits to being upset that 40 years of work ended in such an unceremonious way, but doesn’t let it get him too down. “Look, Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster created Superman in 1938, got 130 bucks and that was it. The comic book industry is hit and run.” Goldberg prefers to keep hitting.

on The Three Stooges and illustrating several hardcover Nancy Drew books. When asked about the workshop he attended at Southampton Cultural Center, Goldberg explained that it’s not just about drawing the model. “It’s the blanket, the chair she’s sitting on...I like to make little stories as I draw. You see, people don’t just stand there with nothing going on. I drew the people who were behind the model on the other end of the room.” Goldberg believes that worldbuilding and continuity in art is very important and something that many aspiring comic book artists forget. The Hamptons have many living legends, but it’s great to meet one as down-to-earth as Stan Goldberg.

“I’ve achieved my goals,” he reflects toward the end of the conversation, “and I can’t imagine slowing down.”

“You see, people don’t just stand there with nothing going on. I draw the people who were behind the model.” In fact, Goldberg’s been working consistently. In addition to one-shot projects like The Simpsons Comics #183 (which casts the characters in a parody of Archie) and cover art for Marvel, Goldberg has been working on projects that are very important to him. One such project is Rise Above, a comic book about bullying that’s being used to teach kids in schools. “I always make sure something like that has a lot of entertainment, but has a good, important message,” he says, noting that he considers books like these books the most important he’s ever worked on. Goldberg’s worked on educational books throughout his career. “I did books that the FBI gave out that dealt with drugs, alcohol and another subject that should be talked about more, which is what happens when there’s a sudden death in a young boy or girl’s family,” he explains, noting that he’s also had a lot of support from organizations like the Elks Club and Kiwanis. Goldberg is also working on comics based

Quilting With Friends



e are six ladies and one gentleman who quilt on the North Fork. We gather on Wednesday mornings to create the most beautiful quilted projects this side of the Peconic. Our beloved instructor, Maryann, and her husband Tom, host our quilting classes in their Southold Victorian home. They also host weekend quilting retreats, moonlight quilting, quilting bingo, holiday parties, and potluck dinners. The back of the house has the most interesting screened-in, wrap-around porch that conforms to the contours of the house. It’s here, in early summer, that we sit on floral-cushioned wicker chairs munching on strawberry-spinach-leaf salad, assorted finger sandwiches, and yogurt parfait. From the porch can be seen a beautiful, flower-filled garden, which

is amazing considering the deer population in Southold. In addition to socializing, we do actually spend most of our time sewing. To get to the sewing room, one must pass through the living room with its high, embossed tin ceiling. The room is furnished with lovely, carefully chosen Victorian-era antiques. There’s a huge bow window with cushioned seating. The white lace curtains are a beautiful rose pattern. It is here that Maryann and Tom display their Victoriandecorated Christmas tree each year. The sewing room is a huge, well-lit room lined with shelves containing cheerfully colored fabrics in hundreds of patterns. Several wall hangings and quilts adorn the walls. In addition to traditional patterns like Log Cabin, Drunkard’s Path, and Dresden Plate, we have

quilted many of Maryann’s original designs. Our projects include table runners, wall hangings for every season and holiday, and quilts from crib size to king size. Our finished products may be used to adorn our own homes, given as gifts, or for charity. We talk and laugh (and even cry on occasion), so much so that Maryann rings a little bell when she needs to get our attention. Cherished friendships have been forged over the years, and we have supported each other through thick and thin. After class last week, I received a frantic phone call from Carolyn. Her husband had left an oscillating lawn sprinkler running while he went out. In his absence, the water pressure increased significantly until the sprinkler reached the upstairs open window of her sewing room. She had mopped up the floor and the tables, but feared that her expensive sewing machine was ruined! We both wailed in dismay. My husband Charlie interrupted, telling her to make sure the plug was out, then to tip the machine

so that the water would run out down by the feed dog end. She complied and we could hear the sound of water dripping into a wastebasket. He told her to dry the machine using paper towels, Q-tips (for small spaces), and a hair dryer on low heat. By unscrewing and removing the side panel, she could access the inside of the machine. He assured her that this procedure would work; it had worked on our electric frying pan that had accidentally been submerged. The important thing was to not use it until it was dry—about a week to make sure. They both agreed it should be checked out at the sewing machine repair shop to be certain everything was all right. He told her that it would work because the machines are made of plastic and they are fairly indestructible. A week later, Carolyn called and said, “I can’t believe it! I plugged in the sewing machine and it works fine! It even does all those fancy, intricate stitches! I’m so happy!.” I was amazed and said, “In other words, if your machine had gone down with the Titanic, and was retrieved, it would still work.” We all chuckled. “Well, thank God,” said Carolyn, “and thank you. See you in quilting class. Bye now.” “Bye,” I said.

Movie Review: The Wolverine By Lee meyer


n the startling opening moments of James Mangold’s The Wolverine, Logan (Real life East Ender Hugh Jackman) rescues Yashida, a young Japanese soldier who was too afraid to commit harakiri with the rest of his battalion in World War II, as a mushroom cloud envelops Nagasaki in the distance. Logan, of course, can’t die due to a genetic mutation that allows him to sprout claws and gives him a super healing factor. This could make for pretty boring viewing—what fun is it if your hero is never actually in danger? Luckily, the film finds a way to imperil our hero when he goes to Japan to visit Yashida (Haruhiko Yamanouchi), now a terminally ill old man, who wants to repay Logan with a gift: mortality. Yashida knows that Logan is not a happy man, and if Logan gives over his healing factor via advanced technology, Yashida will be cured. Logan rejects the “gift,” and Yashida dies later that night. At the funeral, Logan is shot saving Yashida’s beautiful granddaughter Mariko (Tao Okamoto) from a Yakuza attack and realizes that he’s not healing like he should. Something is rotten in the state of Tokyo... As convoluted as the plot sounds, the film unfolds like a conventional Japanese crime drama that’s been interrupted by an American superhero. Based on a comic book story by Chris Claremont, the film is much more mature than most summer film fare. Refreshingly, answers to the film’s central mystery are doled out slowly and sparingly— until the flashy climax that reminds viewers they are watching a summer superhero blockbuster. While the final 20 minutes leave the moody tone behind, Mangold doesn’t forget the groundwork he’s laid for the last hour-and-a-half and resolves the story in

satisfying fashion. Uncompromisingly violent for a film rated PG-13, Mangold pulls no punches when it comes to the various deaths and murders in the film, which range from “honorable suicide” and guns to a gruesome sequence late in the film that gives new meaning to the term “open heart surgery.” Jackman, in his sixth performance as Wolverine—he starred in the

first three X-Men films, the abysmal X-Men Origins: Wolverine and made a cameo in X-Men: First Class— completely owns the role in the same way that Sean Connery owned James Bond. He has chemistry with everyone he shares scenes with, particularly Rila Fukushima as Yukio, a deadly assassin for the Yashida family-cum-Wolverine sidekick who also happens to be the sweet, funny best friend of Mariko. Okamoto

makes a strong impression as Mariko, adding layers to what could easily have been a “damsel in distress” role and her (easily forecast) romance with Logan is believable and sexy. Svetlana Khodchenkova doesn’t fare so well as the villainous Viper; whether it’s due to her campy performance or her goofy dialogue, the character just doesn’t fit with the rest of the cast. Her ridiculous expository lines during the film’s climax don’t do her any favors. But it’s no surprise that Khodchenkova’s blonde, sultry, green spandexclad character doesn’t resonate, especially when the rest of the movie is remarkably subtle. Jackman’s character is (unwittingly) schooled in honor and pride throughout the film, as Logan struggles to understand the reasoning behind the Japanese characters’ motivation and why it’s so important to his World War II comrade to not succumb to cancer. The themes of mortality, honor and finding meaning are potent and often poignant; Jackman and Mangold have imbued Wolverine with more heart and soul than most characters in this genre (the character is infinitely more relatable than the latest incarnation of Superman featured in this summer’s Man of Steel). But the movie’s not all meaningful insights and existential musings—there are several stunningly realized action sequences, like the tightly choreographed fight that breaks out in the funeral early in the movie; a brawl atop the Bullet Train between Logan and an unusually agile Yakuza ninja; and the aforementioned “open heart surgery” scene in which Logan operates on himself while Yukio defends him in a samurai duel with one of the central villains. It’s not hard to recommend The Wolverine, with its excellent performances, compelling characters, a strong story and solid direction. And stay after the credits for one final surprise twist.

Movies... Hot Flicks tHis Week cockneys vs. Zombies A British take on the semi-comedy zombie film, the idea being that working class Londoners, or “cockneys,” are confronted with zombies. The stereotypical cockney is a sort of no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is, pugnacious guy (or woman, for that matter) who is proud of being working class and suspicious of “toffs.” Cockneys are also known for being practically unintelligible to Americans because of their thick accents and their elaborate slang—the rhyming slang that replaces certain words or phrases with rhymes. Cockneys vs. Zombies, like Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland before it, has a good time poking fun at the clichés of zombie movies and reveling in the violence of a group of unlikely heroes. The canyons The Canyons is a movie that’s clearly designed to stir controversy. Lindsay Lohan, whose brushes with prison and stints in rehab have made her life tabloid fodder for years, starring in an unrated film (which is tantamount to an NC-17 rating) that has all the signs of being soft-core porn, at least on some level. On another level, the film was directed by a serious, reputable director (Paul Schrader) and written by a celebrated novelist (Bret Easton Ellis), which places it in rare company. There have been very few essentially

X-rated films (NC-17 is a euphemism for X) with A-list casts and production teams: Last Tango, Henry & June, Midnight Cowboy. Now that porn is pretty much ubiquitous, perhaps we’re due for a film that tries to elevate the genre with story and production values. (Then again, who watches porn for that?) At any rate, Lindsay Lohan presumably hopes to further her image as a drugged-out slut, and this might help, if anyone is paying attention. 2 Guns Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington play Marcus Stigman and Bobby Trench in this anti-buddy film about two agents (from different enforcement agencies) who wind up working together. The main joke in 2 Guns revolves around Stigman and Trench’s dislike and disregard for each other—they are constantly squabbling and making life hard for each other. You know what’s going to happen, don’t you?

Elephant Awareness at Guild Hall By roBerT oTTone


veryone is driven by a cause; some selfish needs and wants, others, more altruistic. Davina Dobie falls into the second grouping. One of the most passionate and fascinating people I’ve ever had the chance to speak with during my relatively short writing career, Dobie puts the plight of the elephant before any other and openly discusses the absurdity of the ivory trade. I always knew about the ivory trade and its effect on Asian and African elephants. But I never understood how anyone could actually be so monstrous as to genuinely want items made out of ivory. It seems ridiculous, but apparently, it’s still a major issue. Dobie is hoping to change that by hosting a night at Guild Hall, through her organization The Silent Trumpet. By presenting the National Geographic documentary Battle For the Elephants, Dobie hopes to raise awareness for the horrors happening every day to the elephant by African and Asian poachers. “It’s important for people to be aware of what’s happening. Once you dive into it, there’s so much information, it’s shocking,” Dobie said. “It’s tragic, and honestly, I cry every time I read about it. It’s so brutal.”

going on,” Dobie said. “I was pleasantly surprised by the positive reaction. I’m very happy, but it needs to get out further. I believe with this event, The Battle For the Elephants, it’ll make a ripple, if not a tidal wave, which would be nice. It remains to be seen, but I’m doing everything in my life to make it happen. Africa in its unity needs to make the elephant and rhinoceros (which is also under great threat of extinction for its horn) International Treasures. The same model for preserving the panda in China needs to be instituted for the elephant in Africa.” I was moved listening to Dobie talk about the plight of the elephant. I feel it’s one of the more worthy causes out there and while it’s not necessarily in the news all the time, it’s certainly something that should be at the forefront of everyone’s mind. This is a horrifically brutal trade these days, driven by greed and the desire to illustrate one’s status. Those

Help stop one of the ugliest animal-related massacres in the world by not chasing after ivory. On August 10, go to Guild Hall and watch a presentation of Battle For the Elephants for a good cause. Learn more by visiting Guild Hall online. “We’ve got very interesting people coming to talk, attached to various foundations, so it should be an enlightening evening,” Dobie said.

One of the more shocking things I learned while chatting about the elephants was how the numbers dwindled so much over the span of a hundred or so years. Starting in 1900, there were around 10 million wild elephants roaming and living the beautiful plains of Africa. By 2012, there were less than half a million. These are genocide numbers. “The purpose of the screening of Battle for the Elephants is awareness and knowledge. By watching this film, the audience will come to understand and notice the massive war we face in this plight to save the elephant; in that Asia has little concept of what horrors truly lie behind what they conceive as a mere luxury or status symbol,” Dobie said. “Atrocious, quite honestly!” Dobie, an artist, is from Kenya and draws upon what she loves through her artistic endeavors. When she came to New York, the original idea was to get her artwork out to the public and showcase her abilities. “I got involved after a couple of meetings where we set up groups to try and make a few changes,” Dobie said. “The slaughter is just horrific. When I came here [to New York], I thought, ‘What could I do?’ and wanted to bring awareness to this part of the world to Long Island. I was surprised to see how little people knew about what was going on.” “East Enders are very receptive to the atrocities

Where to find the bargains this weekend.

For you, family and friends

Natural Beauty & Newsworthy New Shops! By STePHANIe De TrOy

Summer is all about letting go of that polished look we covet during the cooler months. From tousled hair to flip flops, the look is really head-to-toe laid back and relaxed. I’ve even given up on pedicures— one trip to the beach and it’s ruined—and have succumbed to the occasional DYI paint job, leaving chips for a week or two. The trick, however, is keeping the balance between au naturel and groomed. It may be summer, but you never know who you’ll run into in the Hamptons! With my new Silk ‘n Swirl Facial Cleansing Power Brush, which pretty much looks like one of those Clairsonic things you’ve seen at Sephora, my skin feels smoother than ever. I’ve never enjoyed anything more, well, in the realm of cleansing, than the feeling of those soft bristles. Best part of all is that clean skin eliminates the need for excessive makeup and allows for a very natural, summery look. Find yours at!

Shop (For a Cause) At Sunset


ail Rothwell is bringing her version of Fashion’s Night Out to the Hamptons on August 8 with Shop at Sunset. The third annual charitable shopping initiative will take place in East Hampton, Sag Harbor, and Bridgehampton as retailers join forces to raise funds for the Retreat, the only nonprofit domestic violence agency serving the East End of Long Island. Taking place from 5-8 p.m., Shop at Sunset will include trunk shows, music, special offers and refreshments. Rothwell tells us more about this event and her famed namesake East End boutique. It’s been almost a decade since you left your position as president of Nine West. Do you ever look back with any regrets? I enjoyed my time at Nine West. I was there in the beginning, about 10 years, when the founders,

Vince Camuto and Jerome Fisher, were still very much involved; the company ran with a very entrepreneurial spirit. I’ve looked forward, but when I do reflect, I truly enjoyed those years! What made you decide to move to the Hamptons permanently? My move out east was a decision based on wanting a different quality of life. I’d traveled my whole career to work out of the city, as well as traveling on a plane throughout every month. At one point did you first think about opening your boutique, and why east Hampton? I was living here 6 months when I realized I wanted to do something so I decided that I would open the shop to create a place that reflected my own aesthetic. Who is your target demographic? My target demographic is a woman with her own

sense of style. She enjoys adding new pieces by season, which updates and enhances her wardrobe. How do you go about finding the brands you stock in your boutique? I shop the market in both New York and Europe and I look at What do you think are Hampton essentials that every woman should own for Fall? Some must haves are The Row leather pant with an ankle zip and their leather jacket, Celine short shearling reversible jacket, and Jason Wu sleeveless black dress with a red stripe down the center. What do you wear day to day? Every day I wear black slacks, a new seasonal tops, a blazer, and my everyday jewelry is Antonia Miletto hand carved ebony and 18k white gold, Shawn Warren drop pear shaped black diamond earrings, and Janis Provisor semiprecious stone necklaces and earrings. How does your day-to-day life compare now to when you were at Nine West? It took a while to get used to not having the team that I was used to sharing business and life with! I am fortunate that Kate Horan from East Hampton joined me about four years ago so instead of 20 people it’s Kate and I! I laugh some days when it’s really gets the adrenaline moving. What are some of the biggest challenges when it comes to running a store in the Hamptons? It’s an everyday business from Memorial Day through Labor Day; then it is a Thursday through Monday business through December 15 after that strictly Saturday and Sunday, but the biggest challenge is the unpredictable weather! How did you come up with the idea for Annual Shop At Sunset? What better way to get a woman out shopping than for a cause! It’s a take-off of Fashions Night Out. This is the third year for East Hampton, the second for Sag Harbor and this year we have been able to get Bridgehampton involved as well. The shops stay open late and some donate a percentage of the evening’s net proceeds to The Retreat. We offer in-store raffles, light bites, and fun! This year, thanks to East Hampton’s Mayor Frank F. Rickenbach Jr., we have additional excitement—for the first time in Herrick Park in East Hampton at 8:30pm we are showing ET under the stars on a 30-foot screen all participants and donors will be advertised on the big screen! It’s a wonderful way to bring family together for a night on the lawn with snacks and beverage. Can you tell us about some of the retailers that will be participating this year and about the happenings we can expect? The best way to tell the businesses that are participating is to look for the orange and bright blue “Shop at Sunset” posters in the windows.

Plants Behaving Badly By jeANeLLe MyerS

It’s time to talk about some badly behaved plants again. They not only behave badly in your landscape or garden, but if they escape, can invade the area at large. I have seen them at several local garden centers which is appropriate: If attended to with ever-diligent care for the duration of their life (!), they can be useful. I have recently returned to a garden where I worked several years ago. It has had no care for only two years. I explained to the previous owner, when he told me that he wanted the wisteria on the roof, that it was a terrible idea, as the plant would try to “eat” the roof. He insisted so we installed pipes to keep it raised above the roof and made sure that only one tendril occupied each pipe. In the last two years with no care, those tendrils have grown to 3” in diameter, pulled the pipes from the roof and covered it creating too much moisture inside the building. Tendrils from the trunk had grown into the surrounding shrubs and lawn. We removed it and reduced the mother vine considerably to find that the roof must be replaced. Wisteria is a beautiful plant but do not plant it unless it can be maintained forever by a knowledgeable gardener. It’s easier to maintain in a pot and can be “topiaried” into a striking tree form.

inviting people to help preserve it. My wife and I participated in the workshop and learned a lot. Without your article we wouldn’t have known. Warmly, Ernest Farrino Shinnecock Hills Thanks! I’ve been fascinated by cemeteries and their histories since I was growing up down the road from the North Otto Cemetery.—SD AT WAR Dear Dan, What with today’s political morass I thought back to my introduction to voting and political parties. Back in the early ’50s there was a “Conflict” involving Korea. It was labeled such but it was no different than all the following unprecipitated “conflicts” called wars, the last real conscionable one being WWII. Back then young people were not as politically savvy as they are today, at least not in my Lower East Side (since gentrified to East Village). I questioned Democratic President Truman’s wisdom concerning the atom bombings in Japan and it was upsetting. Although I admired FDR, I decided that I would always be an Independent voter. But then I heard this introspective proclamation, which embodied the very essence of America’s greatness. Corny no doubt, but it was as though the Statue Liberty could talk. It stated: “Should any political party attempt to abolish Social Security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man and they are stupid.”

That was Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower, whatta guy. I thought to myself at the time, “his party is my party.” Ah, but that was then, a long, long time ago, and this is now and the party’s over. It seems as though that “splinter” he mentioned has festered and has sadly infected the once Grand Old Party. As for those “Texas oil millionaires and an occasional politician or business man,” stupid as suggested or not, their greed more than compensates for any intelligence they may or may not lack. They have put our country up for sale to the highest bidder in the process of their goal: for-profit privatization of America. Hopefully Ike was prophetic about the demise of any party who would destroy the very tenets, the foundation of what had made this country great and the envy of the world. Nicholas Zizelis Amagansett We live in a land of very, very great opportunity.—DR CLOSE, BUT… Dear Dan, In his article (Classic Cars column, July 5 issue) about the Jaguar XKE (an iconic sports car if there ever was one), Robert Gelber gets a very basic fact about it very wrong:. The E-Type was introduced in 1961, not 1963 (which he infers in one sentence) and certainly not in 1964, which he directly states. The XKE was one of the most significant cars built in the 20th century because it might have been the most beautiful. Nicholas Saridakis Hampton Bays Vroom! Vroom!—DR Email your letters to

Young Hamptons Author Sweet as a Cupcake BY sHAron feIereIsen


f you have a pre-teen, odds are you’ve heard of The Cupcake Club, a book series written by 10-year-old Carrie Berk and her mom, New York Times bestselling author Sheryl Berk. It’s so popular, in fact, that Peace, Love and Cupcakes, the first book in the series, is being developed into a children’s musical at Vital Theatre in New York City for a Spring 2014 debut. We spoke with Southampton resident and cupcake connoisseur Carrie Berk to find out more. How did the idea for this series come about? Four years ago, my teacher taught us about realistic fiction. I was really into Judy Moody books, and I would always write sequels to them. My teacher said, “You should write your own original characters, not someone else’s,” and the rest is history. What is it about cupcakes that makes them so special, versus, say...cookies? Cupcakes are little pieces of art! They have so many elements to them: the cake, the filling, the frosting, the piping technique, the decoration. A cookie is a cookie! You really can’t do much to it! Can you tell us about some of your favorite cupcakes in the Hamptons? I was really impressed with Tate’s. I love their cookies, but when I tried their! Very moist cake, very creamy frosting. I also liked Water Mill Cupcake a lot. We drove out to the store one

weekend and I sampled so many flavors. I’ve also tried the Blue Duck cupcakes at Blue Duck Bakery—so cute! What separates a bad cupcake from a great cupcake? A bad cupcake is dry and flavorless and its frosting is way too sweet and whippy. A great cupcake is moist, bursting with flavor, has just the right balance of sweetness, and has a texture that enhances it. I’m also a fan of decorations—I like my cupcakes to leap off the bakery shelf! Do you have a favorite cupcake recipe that you make at home? We make a great butter cream frosting—we’ve really perfected it. You need the perfect balance of butter and sugar. You’ve interviewed a number of famous bakers. Any who were particularly memorable? Anyone you’d love to meet? I love Buddy Valastro, The Cake Boss. He just made my graduation cake from elementary school. I also love the sisters from DC Cupcakes and Sprinkles owner Candace Nelson. My very first interview was with Crumbs CEO and founder Jason Bauer. He is amazing. I just saw him last year at Super Saturday! Your book Peace, Love and Cupcakes is about more than just cupcakes. It also tackles serious issues of bullying. Is that something inspired from personal experience?

A lot of the things I write about come from things I’ve seen. I also included issues like divorcing parents, juvenile diabetes and crushes in the other books in the series. I think it’s important and it helps kids understand they’re not alone. How did the musical come about? Can you tell us a little bit about what we can expect? My mom and I are huge Broadway buffs, so we’re so excited! Vital Theatre in New York City came to us and asked if they could do Peace, Love and Cupcakes as a musical. We said, “YES!!!!!” Any cupcakes you’re dying to try that you haven’t tried yet? I love trying cupcakes from all over the world. I’ve tried some from Rome, London, Paris, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Canada. I would really like to try Japanese or Chinese cupcakes—or Spanish ones. I’d like to know how other countries around the world make cupcakes. What’s your all-time favorite cupcake? Red Velvet and Salted Caramel. You’ve done so much already. What do you want to be when you grow up? I really want to be a New York Times bestselling author like my mom! Or maybe have my own show like Martha Stewart or Rachel Ray? My dream, though, is to be a judge on Cupcake Wars.

Cold Soups Are a Hot Summer Treat BY SIlvIA lEHRER

The ideal openers for meals on the dog days of summer are cold soups. With so many summer fruits and vegetables hitting the peak of freshness it’s just a matter of minimal cooking or no cooking at all, adding broth or other liquid and seasonings then blending the soup to a smooth puree. Gerry Hayden, executive chef/owner, with his wife Claudia Fleming, pastry chef of the North Fork Table and Inn, offers his Catapano’s goat farm-inspired chilled grape soup with goat yoghurt and goat cheese, one of my chef recipe picks from Savoring the Hamptons: Discovering the Food and Wine of Long Island’s East End. There are at least 10 different recipes for gazpacho in my cold soup files. Here I choose Gazpacho in the Spanish Manner. While most authorities agree that the original gazpacho was made from bread paired with water and seasoned with olive oil, vinegar, garlic and salt, the gazpacho below is clearly a delicious update. Any time a do-ahead dish is refrigerated whether a soup or salad or a dish to be reheated, remember that cold tends to mute flavors. The allure of cold soups requires that seasonings be intensified so be sure to taste before serving and adjust as necessary. GAZPACHO IN THE SPANISH MANNER There are many new and creative recipes for gazpacho made with ingredients such as yellow tomatoes, chilies and shrimp and other nouvelle ideas. Whatever the case, most authorities agree that the

original gazpachos were made from bread paired with water and seasoned with olive oil, vinegar, garlic and salt. No doubt, the addition of tomatoes came after the discovery of the New World. Serves 6 to 8 2 7-minute farm-fresh coddled eggs 1 medium red onion, sliced 1 cucumber, seeded and sliced 1 large sweet red bell pepper, trimmed, seeded and coarsely chopped* 2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced 2 slices stale white bread, crusts removed and cubed 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 2 1/2 pounds, about 5 to 6 ripe tomatoes, coarsely chopped 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup tomato juice Accompaniments: Tiny dice of onion, cucumber, tomato and croutons. Or garnish with drizzle of crème fraiche, tiny dice of sweet yellow pepper and cilantro leaves. (This is newer.) 1. Gently lower eggs into a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from heat, cover pan tightly and let stand for 7 minutes. Immerse in cold water to stop the cooking. Peel and set aside. 2. Place onion, cucumber, pepper and garlic in work bowl of food processor or blender, and pulse for several seconds to chop and mix ingredients, stopping to push down sides with a rubber spatula as necessary. Add tomatoes; pulse for several seconds

GERRY HAYDEN’S GREEN GRAPE GAZPACHO Gerry Hayden, the executive chef/owner of the North Fork Table & Inn in Southold, prepared this quick and easy Spanish inspired gazpacho at a Hampton’s summer fund-raising event. Chef Hayden incorporates Catapano Dairy Farm’s goat’s milk yogurt for this delectably milky soup. Serves 6

*Note: Marcona almonds known as the ‘queen of almonds’ are imported from Spain. They may be difficult to find and are pricey. For my version blanch at least 2 cups of whole almonds, peel, and while still wet transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet in one layer. Add 2 full tablespoons kosher or sea salt, toss through the almonds then let dry on the sheet pan, covered lightly with a clean kitchen towel, for 48 hours. Uncover and transfer almonds on a single layer on lined sheet pan to a preheated 225 oven for 1 hour-1 hour and 15 minutes until toasty beige. Use what you need to garnish the soup then store the remaining salted almonds in a covered tin—they’ll keep for weeks and make a wonderful snack at cocktail time.

ove fresh fruit and vegetables? Good cheese? Delicious baked goods? Not willing to brave the traffic on Route 27 for a bushel of tomatoes, a bunch of basil and a crusty baguette? Then have I got a service for YOU: Let the bruschetta begin! Farm to Front Door, a Hamptons online market, is the brainchild of Cathy Badard and Lesa Tinker. Badard, who lives fulltime in Southampton “had a pipedream,” says Tinker. She wanted to share “all things green on the east end: painters, gardeners…[she has a] pure interest in healthy living, supporting the locals farmers, being ecoconscious. Our ultimate goal was to do more with the farmers, and now we have this: Farm to Front Door.” The initial website, which still functions as an umbrella for Farm to Front Door, is ecoeastend. com, which lists events and vendors that promote ecologically sound living. “Cathy moved out when her kids were little and got to appreciate the way of life out here,” says Tinker. “You live and eat the natural life. This is her main passion.” With a strong commitment to feeding their families in a wholesome and nutritious fashion they thought, “Wouldn’t it be great if more people could access this, especially those who are too busy to do it? Wouldn’t it be great if all your farm produce was sitting on your door step.” Rather than wonder and dream, Badard and Tinker decided to make it happen. The two women do it all themselves, with the aid of two helpers. No strangers to the business world, they already had

“But it would be great if more people ate the fresh produce and they could appreciate what they have been missing out on. It would be fabulous.” Tinker is quick to point out that Farm to Front Door is not a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Customers choose their items and order online. The company delivers for a small fee. They also send out a newsletter once a month with updates on new products and services. Although there has been much interest in having the service extend to New York City, they are not there yet. Tinker says there are a plethora of farmers markets already functioning, but doesn’t dismiss the idea entirely. Right now their season parallels the Hamptons season, with their last delivery featuring Thanksgiving treats, including turkeys from North Sea Farms in Southampton and decorative gourds for the table. “Ultimately, we would like it to be all year, except for the fruit and vegetables.”

the know-how. Badard has worked in business and fashion and is currently a real estate broker with Corcoran in Southampton. Tinker, who left Australia on a 12-month vacation 25 years ago, managed the London offices of an Australian publishing company, and does extensive volunteer work for her children’s school. In business already three years, they have had “a lot of trial runs and different names but we ironed out the kinks,” Tinker says. Thursdays through Saturdays are their busiest days. They try to make all deliveries on the day the order is placed and service the Hamptons from Montauk to Quogue. “We have certain farm stands that we especially like because their product is so good,” says Tinker. “The vendors are all easy to work with, accommodating and supportive. It broadens their outreach as well.” Their stock includes fresh eggs, home-made ice cream from Bay Burger, Paul’s Caesar Dressing, Halsey Pickles, cheeses from Mecox Bay Dairy, and tea from Plain T, in addition to local corn, flowers, pies and accoutrements. “The apple cider donuts from Milk Pail are really good,” adds Tinker. The women have divided the labor. Tinker maintains the website, keeping it up-to-date. Badard meets with the vendors and handles social media. They both share the shopping and delivery chores. They have had a 50% increase from year to year. And are still growing. “Expanding the business is the million dollar question...We have a vehicle that cruises around and the driver gets stopped and asked for information all the time. It would be great if the business doubled, but I am not sure I want to do that for the next ten years.” Tinker thinks about it and nods her head. a Convenient Farmers Market

Restaurant Review: La Maison Blanche BY GenevIeve HorsBurGH

f you’re like me you don’t visit Shelter Island often, and if you do it’s just to pass through to Greenport or Sag Harbor—but I’ve just found a reason to make it a destination, and that reason is called La Maison Blanche. Whether you are looking for a day-cation with the family or a romantic getaway, La Maison Blanche, which is also an inn, is a place you need to try. The menu is French-Italian, with a few American touches. To start we sampled the traditional French onion soup, and I look for an onion soup that has thin, wonderfully caramelized onions in it and I found that here. The onions were sweet and incredibly tender, almost melting in my mouth. The broth was rich and flavorful, seasoned to perfection. The soft melted cheese—a mix of mozzarella and swiss, perhaps—was slightly tangy and paired wonderfully with the robust beef broth. We also sampled the soup of the day, which was a delightfully woodsy cream of mushroom soup. It was not as heavy as I was anticipating; instead I found it to be wonderfully light and full of hearty mushroom flavor. Next we tried the Burrata and Tomato appetizer, and if you’ve never had burrata, this is the place to try it! Burrata—which means “buttered” in Italian—is a deliciously fresh Italian cheese. The outer shell of the cheese is solid mozzarella, while on the inside there is both decadent cream and mozzarella, creating a silky, soft texture that begs to be spread on bread, although eating it straight up isn’t a bad option either. At La Maison Blanche, this creamy cheese is served surrounded by haricots vert and olives, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and sweet balsamic vinegar. Although a most decadent appetizer, I enjoyed every single bite and I hope to go back to enjoy it again.

Confit de Conard, a duck entrée

paired with fingerling potatoes and dusted with some French salt. The meat was cooked superbly,

and we enjoyed the surprise little sprinkling of salt on top. It’s very French, very fancy, and it makes you feel very special. For dessert we chose a classic crème brulee, which was slightly sweet and wonderfully creamy on the inside, with that crispy sugar crust to offset the creamy custard and create quite the party in your mouth. We also had a made-to-order chocolate fondante, a creation of chocolate cake with a hot chocolate center, paired with vanilla ice cream. This one would satisfy your most intense chocolate craving.

Located near the famous Crescent Beach on Shelter Island, La Maison Blanche is a gorgeous setting for any occasion. For more information, visit them on the web at

The Calamari appetizer also caught my eye, as this version was baked rather than fried and so I was intrigued. Would they be crispy enough to satisfy me? Our server explained that the chef marinates them (in buttermilk most likely) to make them tender, and then they are breaded to order and baked. They came out and I found myself amazed. Not only were they crispy, they were tender and flavorful, with a bit of spice to tease your taste buds. For my entrée I chose the Confit de Canard, a duck leg and thigh served atop sautéed wild mushrooms and roasted fingerling potatoes. Our server asked if I wanted my skin crispy and of course I said yes; is there any other way to have your duck? It came out flawlessly crisp, and I savored each bite. To me, duck tastes like a combination of chicken and beef, and I prefer the juicy dark meat pieces laid before me. Paired with all kinds of mushrooms, including chanterelles, creminis, oysters and buttons, all cooked together and eaten with a mouthful of savory duck. A perfect bite.

hat’s new at Michael Gluckman’s Madison & Main restaurant? Just about everything. It opened just four months ago in the former New Paradise Café space on Sag Harbor’s Main Street— but the interior paint job makes it look like this eatery has been there forever. They plan to remain open seven days, year-round. The bar already has a bustling fan base. By now the menu should include a lot of local produce, in addition to local fish and seafood from Gosman’s Dock in Montauk. I was happy to see Amagansett Sea Salt on every table! My husband and I went to check it all out a couple months ago, before the bold-face names started pouring in.

We shared a Homemade fresh Berry Shortcake with blueberries and strawberries and whipped cream. It was a two-person job. Buttery. There’s a distinctly European vibe—the music, the candles, the dark wood and exposed tabletops. The wine list offers choice picks from France, Italy and California as well as our own Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack. Plus Long Island beers including Long Ireland’s Celtic Ale and Blue Point’s Hoptical Illusion. Chef/co-owner Eric Miller popped round to say a friendly “hello” to all the diners. I took M&M’s Drinks Menu advice to “relax and sip our special creations” to heart and ordered a Sag Harbor Triple Rum Punch. The Pyrat rum,

peach schnapps, Malibu rum, Meyers rum and fresh-squeezed orange was pretty served in a tall glass—and tasty. Husband went with a Madison & Main Single Malt Old Fashioned with 12-yearold McCallans whisky, a cube of Brazilian sugar, artisan bitters and a splash of Maraschino liqueur. He commented that “it’s unusual to have a mixed drink made from whisky— but this one works.” We started with some light bread and a savory spread. Husband ordered the sag Harbor’s latest hit Wild Giant Shrimp Cocktail from M&M’s Raw Bar, served over ice with freshly grated horseradish cocktail sauce and pepper salsa on a tall silver dish. It was an impressive presentation. He found the shrimp a tad overcooked to his taste. I had Charleston Wild Giant Shrimp with creamy grits and crispy shallots. Good shrimp, tame grits. Then came my favorite dish of the night—Petite Ravioli of Fresh Peas in a braised summer vegetable broth topped with North Fork microgreens. The riced sweet pea and scallion filling was still very hot when served and it had a vibrant flavor and great texture. Husband’s entrée was a generous serving of Montauk Tuna served with roasted, Sicilian-style eggplant, garlic and pine nuts. He quite liked it. French press coffee, anyone? No, thanks, but we

Buttery. I asked co-owner Michael Gluckman what his favorite dishes on the menu are. He said, “I like the tuna and our aged steaks. We want to be a local favorite year-round.

Beautiful homes sold this week.

Bargains on the East End.

Real Estate Sales Looking Up


ower interest rates, a rising stock market and aggressive buyers are making this year’s real estate market on the East End one of the hottest in recent memory. The real estate market has been enjoying an increasing number of housing trades, which has brought those awaiting second quarter numbers for 2013 plenty to be happy about. This quarter in the Hamptons, there were 675 homes sold, a 25.5% increase compared to last year. Other numbers in Douglas Elliman’s quarterly report showed that, compared to the first quarter, the second quarter increased in terms of houses sold by a whopping 94.5%. Paul Brennan, the Hamptons Manager for Douglas Elliman, who has an office in Bridgehampton, has noticed that when it comes to the luxury home market between $1 million and $5 million, buyers are moving with a sense of urgency. “It’s busy in the 1-to-5-million range, but the higher end is at a lull for the moment. Interest rates are beginning to rise, so people are getting into the game before they get locked out,” Brennan explains. Since banks have kept interest rates low for a long time in order to encourage buying, real estate buyers and investors have taken notice and the early birds have jumped on board. The recent report by Douglas Elliman indicates that the Hamptons is also showing a drop in real estate inventory, which would logically further demand and put pressure on prices to go up.

For the second quarter, inventory fell 12.5% compared to last year. So what happens next? The news of hot prices can continue to attract new buyers, but “if interest rates continue to rise,” Brennan explains, “it will slow down the market until the public gets used to the new normal.” But there are plenty of talking heads out there who believe that banks will continue the policy of low interest rates as long as the Federal Reserve does the same. So who’s buying? Thanks to a thrilling ride on Wall Street always be selling. this year, investment bankers and Wall Street traders are back inside real estate offices in the the transactions are at the ‘low end’ of the market, Hamptons, looking to invest their money while at which suggests a bottom-up recover versus the topthe same time enjoy property in one of the most down. Hopefully that’s a good sign of sustainability.” Of course, in the Hamptons, the low end is unlike beautiful places in the world, just two hours away from New York City. “It’s mostly Wall Street people most markets around the world. The median sales who are buying, but I’ve also noticed that there are a price of a home this quarter on the East End was $920,000, which is up significantly from $850,000 lot of Europeans buying as well,” Brennan says. As far as the slow-down in the super high-end compared to last year. And in nearly every sector of homes ($10 million and up), the lack of action can the Hamptons market, there were price increases, be attributed in part to the fiscal cliff fears of 2012. which is a relief to home owners looking to sell but “I think that slowness in the high end that’s taking can leave prospective buyers feeling a little pressure place now is due to the high volume of fiscal cliff to make buying decisions now so that they don’t transactions that took place in the fourth quarter miss out on opportunities today that may not be of 2012. The high end always runs in spurts, so there tomorrow. It’s not a dramatic turn of the table, this is very normal,” Brennan says. “It’s a very but the data is suggesting things are moving toward interesting market, in that currently the majority of a sellers’ market.
