Share your thoughts about the write stuff at page 19

Stones vs. sand As the rise in sea level causes flooding along our ocean beaches, plans are afoot to sweep aside the laws that say nothing but what God puts on the beach can be put there by humans. After all, that was then, this is now. This is an emergency. Get over it. What’s being overlooked, however, is that boulders proposed as jetties or sea walls are—if you give the law a stretch—within the definitions of the existing law. In some places, God has put big boulders along the ocean beach— higglety pigglety, to be sure—for example, at Surfside in Montauk. If bringing in sand is legal, why wouldn’t bringing in boulders and lining them up be legal? God could do that. Didn’t, but could. -- DR

The East End is still abuzz with all the glamor and clamor that surrounded the Hamptons International Film Festival. At the Wölffer Estate reception, Girls star Alex Karpovsky was far from the loner he portrays on the HBO show and chatted up two attractive ladies who were toasting his turn as a member of this year’s jury with glasses of Piper-Heidsieck. Happy Birthday, Ralph Lauren! The East Hampton designer celebrated his 74th birthday last week. Hamptons Piano Man Billy Joel performed his first Long Island concert in 11 years last week at the Paramount in Huntington. Fans were given only two hours’ notice to buy tickets, and the show sold out within 15 minutes. East End regular Gov. Andrew Cuomo and actor Billy Joel Paul Rudd were in the audience.

The H amptons Subway Newsletter By DAn rattiner

Week of October 25–31, 2013 Riders this past week: 12,541 Rider miles this past week: 107,238 DOWN IN THE TUBE Mickey Drexler was seen on the Hamptons Subway last Thursday afternoon heading out to Montauk from Amagansett. He was carrying a lasso. Sarah Jessica Parker was seen on Saturday on the platform at Sagaponack carrying a grocery bag from Loaves & Fishes. Sarabeth Levine from the restaurant that bears her name in New York was seen heading from Westhampton Beach to Quogue last Tuesday. She carried a box of homemade cookies. “THE INTERNATIONALE” PLAYS ITS PART Leading up to the final days of the government shutdown and default, the Republicans and Democrats actually came to an agreement for awhile. It came to fall apart here in the Hamptons. It happened aboard The Internationale, the subway car we have

decked out as a conference center that can ride the subway rails late at night when the system is shut down and all is quiet. The Internationale debuted on October 1. On October 9 , White House officials told us quietly they had a tentative deal with the Republicans. They asked if the principals could toast one another aboard The Internationale, and we said of course. We’d be happy to have them. They’d be our first customer, but we’d have to have the charter paid for, of course, and they said the government would do that, if you just had a little faith, and in the end it was arranged, with us getting cash on the barrelhead up front. In any case, and now it can be told, the participants came and the copies of the deal were on the mahogany table waiting to be signed when an argument broke out, the deal fell apart and everybody stormed out. So that was the pivotal role that The Internationale played. It’s for the history books. Of course, the next afternoon, things got re-settled and everything is now fine. Right? SPOOKY RIDE For the third year in a row, Hamptons Subway

is decorating the entire system with ghosts and cobwebs and spooky lights and people leaping out in all the dark tunnels (the lights will be off) in skeleton masks and so forth. It will take place all day on October 31 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at which time our employees (participating is required) will leave off what they are doing and go home to take their kids trick or treating. They can remain dressed up as the ghosts and goblins and skeletons from when they were in the tunnels. By the way, for their safety, this year we painted the third rail with luminous paint so they can see it and be careful not to step on it, as happened, twice, last year. STRIKE THREATENED The Hamptons Subway flagmen have threatened to go on strike on Monday if their contract is not signed by that time. Since we here at the executive offices have given them all we can afford—new green and red flags every year, new baseball caps of their choice, new sneakers and so forth—you might want to make other plans on Mondaym because we have not been told by them when it will be that day they will drop everything and walk out. Of course, we can’t have the trains running without the flagmen signaling they have to slow down or stop because of a train stopped on the tracks in front of them. So when that happens, where the subway is when it stops, you will be stranded there. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE I want to wish everyone a Happy Halloween this upcoming week. I do this on behalf of everyone at Hamptons Subway. Happy days.

The Little Easy You know how it is when you attack and rob an employee at a pub at 4:55 in the morning, and then he calls the police and you wind up getting chased around the neighborhood by a bunch of officers (including a canine unit and an aviation unit), and then they catch you. Then they find the drugs you’ve got on you, and now you’re dealing with the robbery charge, the drug charge, plus trespassing, resisting arrest, and so on. People don’t appreciate how stressful this is, and there’s no way to prepare for it.

Lost Her Marbles A film-star talkback following a screening at Guild Hall during the Hamptons International Film Festival was disrupted when an audience member stood up and started shouting incoherently about whether the film stars on stage knew how to play marbles. Acting with admirable alacrity, three orderlies dressed in white ran down the aisle, strapped the woman flailing and gibbering into a straightjacket, and pulled her out into a waiting medical transport.

Haunted Ferry Call it pre-Halloween jitters, but numerous frightened locals called to report sightings of a spectral ferryboat plying the waters between North Haven and Shelter Island. The sightings all occurred during the middle of the night, when regular ferry service is suspended. Callers described a cloudy, translucent vessel of an ancient appearance, with torn sails and dilapidated rigging, piloted by a cackling skeleton wearing a long dark robe. Police were advising callers to take aspirin and get a good night’s rest until one night when a call came in that a driver, apparently under the impression that the ghost boat was real (and additionally untroubled by the ghastly ferryman), had driven his 2003 Chevy Impala off the edge of the South Ferry landing and into the water. The man escaped from the sinking vehicle, but police have placed the area under surveillance.

The Diary An Attempt to Climb the Walking Dunes in Napeague Ends in Tragedy


he Walking Dunes in Napeague has never been climbed all the way to the top. Many have tried. Many have died. Today, the Walking Dunes, like Mount Ashkaeski in Nepal and the forbidding Peak of the Gods in Kashmir and perhaps just 10 others around the world, has remained beyond the grasp of even the greatest mountain climbers. It rises for at least 95 feet that we know, its forbidding walls disappearing into the fog and clouds that shroud its peak. Is it 110 feet up? Is it a 140? There have been times when, from nearly 200 yards away at Cyril’s on the Montauk Highway, the clouds have briefly cleared, and if you stand on a stool and shade your eyes as you look north, you can make out those peaks up there. But then, mostly people are drunk at Cyril’s. Who knows what they see. Today, I begin this diary of my second attempt. Indeed, I failed, along with my other assistant climbers last year, due to that overwhelming attack of Ospreys at the 75-foot level that turned us back, all bloody and sick. But this year will be a different story. We climb with folded-up cardboard we can deploy over our heads when the time comes. And so, we expect nothing less than the triumphant conquest of the Walking Dunes. As a result, mankind will be able to tick off one more supposedly un-climbable mountain Dans Banner SoFork/Amb combo_Layout 1 10/6/12 4:17 PM Page 1

on this planet. I, Bob Frankenfaller, on behalf of mankind, which leaves no stone unturned, no mountain unclimbed and no ocean unplumbed, accept this challenge. The expedition is ready. We leave at dawn. DAY ONE This is a day of assembling the base camp. Beginning at dawn, those of us who stayed at Gurney’s Inn during the night arrived at the site, a quarter-mile down Napeague Harbor Road from the turn at Cyril’s on the Montauk Highway, to the dead end at the foot of the peak. We assemble our gear in the flat place just to the east of the dead end, across from Napeague Harbor, by erecting our tents and waiting for the supplies and the others to arrive. We have set up collapsible chairs and lanterns in the tents and wait. History books are taken out of backpacks. We review. The Walking Dunes was created 4,000 years ago when the first of two glaciers during the last Ice Age slid down from the North Pole and ground to a halt in the ocean south of Connecticut. As they melted, rock and debris and sand piled up. Thus was made the South Fork. The sand made the Walking Dunes. Later, a second glacier melted and formed the North Fork.

Dune (Continued from previous page) in the afternoon. We cannot safely climb after that. By radio we contact one another on the cliff face. We will stop at an elevation of 11 feet, five short of our planned goal for the day. We will try to make this up later. We make camp. We sing. We eat Spam. We sleep.

Richard Lewin

Dunes, strong winds from the north drove the sand up north side of the Walking Dunes and down the south side, resulting in the dunes moving at the rate of one inch a year to the south, burying everything in its path as it went. It buried squirrels alive. We have found their remains. It buried pine trees. Some still stick up half-exposed along the southern cliff. It buried deer, who might just have stopped for a moment to look around. The Walking Dunes has no eyes, no soul, no logic, no ethics. It just moves, and God help those that might get in the way. Just before noon, the long caravan of cars bearing supplies and workmen and Sherpas and mules in trailers arrive, and we begin to set things up. It takes most of the afternoon. We are 17 bearers from the local Bonac community, 9 Sherpas from Nepal and a support team for the base camp, radio operators, planners, cooks, laundry people, guards and ambulance paramedics, a total of nine. Plus the chopper and the pilot and copilot for it. And the two trained rescue people from the National Guard in Westhampton. Twenty-six people altogether, ready for this effort. My team of climbers, besides myself, are Harold Moss, Frank Armstrong, Thomas Higgleston and his sister Helga Higgleston. You probably know all of them, for all are famous conquerors of mountains from Everest to Pike’s Peak to K2. We know how to climb. Having arrived and spent all day setting up, we build a bonfire at dusk and sing songs, roast

Everest, Pikes Peak, K2, The Walking Dunes...

marshmallows and enjoy the Spam that the U.S. Army has donated to our effort. We thank them for that, and then, as one, we all go to bed. DAY TWO We begin the climb. We have gear, tents, sleeping bags, pickaxes, goggles, metal hammers, a folded United States flag, a folded Explorer Club flag, pins and cleated shoes and helmets. The helmets are white with red numbers, one to five, so we can be identified from choppers. The temperature is 55. At noon, we are nearly 15 feet from the camp. For some reason, we have encountered rain. We have prepared for rain. What we have not prepared for is that it rains frogs. They are all over, slippery, around on everything. We set up a tarp and wait until the rain stops, then, beginning at 3 p.m. continue on. Sun is going to set at 5:30

DAY THREE Up at the crack of dawn, we put out the fire, eat Spam and are off. Heavy fog settles over us around 10 a.m., and for a while we can’t see one another. At 11:30, we are attacked by mosquitoes. We had this happen in our earlier attempt last year, but this year we have bug spray with us. We use some. We also lather ourselves with repellent. Temperature is 48° at noon. We don jackets. By the end of the day, we have made up the five feet we lost on Day One, traveled a further 22 feet up and have set up a new camp on a slope that’s less steep than others. It has been a good day. DAY FOUR Again we put out the fire, eat Spam and are off just after dawn. Around 10 a.m., several of the Bonackers are exhausted and have to be taken back aboard two of our mules. We have three left. We will manage. By 4 p.m., approaching the 55-foot level, we are attacked by a swarm of bees. We are each equipped with a swatter and we go at it, and by dusk at 5:30 we have won. We are exhausted. It’s been another day. Fire. Songs. Spam. Sleep. (Continued on page 24)

Animal Trouble Control the Animals Near Your House with the Pet Access Smart System


rom time to time, people have asked us to have a pet column in the paper. We’ve considered it. There are people who love pets and people who don’t, so it’s not for everybody. In any case, since I love dogs, I thought I ought to write at least one such column. We could see how it goes, and then go from there. PETTING (That’s the Name of the Column) The big star at this year’s Global Pet Expo, held in Orlando, Florida is a product called the Passport Pet Access Smart System Pet Door. It’s a computer device you clip onto your dog’s collar that allows your dog, just by his approach, to have his dog door open for him so he can go out or back in. No fuss, no muss, no bother. But that’s just the beginning of what it does. The device can also be controlled remotely. So if you are at the office or in Timbuktu or another part of your house, you can, using your computer, program when the dog goes in or out. If you don’t want the dog out, he won’t get

out. And if you don’t want the dog back in, he won’t get in. No matter what he does, no matter how hard he tries—by pressing it with a paw, or moving back 10 feet and then charging forward to slam into it—the door won’t budge. He has to wait. Until you decide. Logic would tell you that the best thing to do might be to set this up and leave it awhile. A dog could get used to when it’s time to go in and out. It would be a bad thing for you to change things on the fly. That would confuse Fido. He wouldn’t know if he’s coming or going. The Passport Pet Access Smart System Pet Door is a terrific thing. It also can accommodate up to 20 dogs at the same time. That is to say, you can put these computer chips on all 20 of the dogs you own and then decide who goes out when and who goes in when. According to the brochure accompanying this product, this allows a particular pet, at a particular time, to have the ability to enjoy some alone time from the rest of everybody. He can be out there, sniffing the flowers, chasing butterflies, barking at the mailmen or peeing on the shrubbery (or, alternately, peeing on the mailman, chasing the

flowers, sniffing the butterflies or barking at the shrubbery). Presuming the owner has taken the logic advice mentioned earlier, the dog just has to remember to stop doing this just before the dog door clangs shut again. Alternately, a dog could be sent out into “isolation” in the yard if he or she has been obstreperous and threatening toward another dog. Bad dog. Out you go. Another thing a person might do from the office is change the sequence so the entire herd is allowed out during a certain time frame, then locked out, then let back in, for example, an hour later. Play time. But this could result in problems down the road. The dogs might be confused or anxious in this situation of going out nose to tail to nose to tail and so forth to beat the clock before the door clangs shut, and this might, after a while, give one particular dog, the smartest of the dogs, the Australian Shepherd or Thomas Edison of the dogs, an idea. If only one dog is supposed to go out at a particular time, it (Continued on next page)

And if it is, then you should also consider a second computer clip-on. should be possible for another dog to get noseto-tail behind that dog and sneak out directly behind him before the shutdown occurs. And who would be the wiser? You know this trick. It happens when you approach a revolving door at the entrance of a big office building. Someone pushes it, and you find if you move fast you can sneak in behind and thus get through without having to

push it yourself. And this could get worse. Pretty soon, in the case of the dog door, you’ll have all the dogs, after having their own “ah ha” moment observing Thomas Edison, doing this. Chaos will reign. Not only at the office, where you will now not be able to be keeping track of everybody, but also at the house itself. Certain dogs, knowing it’s time for Fido to be able to unlock the dog door, will try urging that dog— nudging him, asking him to follow, biting his tail, barking, whatever—to get over there and get out so I can go behind you. If the other dog is not as smart, it will not understand and get irritable and not do it. This creates even more problems. It might be best, I think, to simply do The revolutionary new Pet Door!

“herd in” and “herd out,” which, on your computer software, is called the Master Access Option. I will say this device has one thing in its favor. If there’s a particular beastie outside in your yard, say a raccoon, and he does not have this collar on or if he has one on but it is programmed “no,” he won’t be able to get into your house. The Passport Pet Access Smart System Pet Door may be right for you. And if it is, then you should also consider a second computer clip-on called “Whistle.” You will not only be able to control where your herd is with the Passport Pet Access Smart System Pet Door system, with “Whistle” you will be able to determine how each of your dogs will feel when you get home. “Whistle” has an accelerometer chip in its little computer. And where signals with the Passport are mostly from you to the dog and the dog to the door, with “Whistle” the signals are entirely from the dog to you, or, more specifically, your computer. During your day in Timbuktu or at the office, all your dogs’ accelerometers will be continuously feeding information to you about how many hours they are sleeping, whether they are drinking water (tongue vibrations), or eating food (throat vibrations), or running around exercising or chasing their tails (round and round vibrations). As a result, at the end of the day when you tally things up, you will be able to know before you even put the key in the lock of your front door which of your dogs will be exhausted from exercise, tired from lack of sleep, jump-up happy to see you, or hungry from failing to eat enough food. You can sort out your dogs and take action. I’m looking forward to next year’s Global Pet Expo at the Orange County Convention Center. The rumor is that the company Vroom, which makes those Frisbee-sized carpet-cleaning devices that you turn on when you leave your house so the Vroom can go back and forth throughout the house, getting it clean all day… anyway, the rumor is that this company is working on a Pet Vroom, another Frisbee-sized device, which, when turned on, can scour your backyard, find the dog poop, scoop it up, cart it over to the refuse heap and drop it in. It will come in a variety of colors. And yes, Vroom is considered a pet. People are wondering if it will be able to do the same thing indoors.

Town Hall Zones With the End of a No-Bias Zone, Southampton to Try “Be-Civil” Zone By Dan Rattiner


f you go to the Southampton Town Hall today, you will notice there’s something missing. It’s a sign. Six years ago, members of the Southampton Town Board were photographed standing proudly in front of the columns and front steps of that grand building, directly behind a brand new white wooden sign on a post they had just ordered put up alongside the concrete front walkway. Now it’s gone. Here is what it said. BIAS FREE ZONE This Marker Represents the Community’s recognition of the Importance of Establishing an open-minded and respectful attitude among all the residents of Southampton Town. Dedicated on January 1, 2007 by the Southampton AntiBias Task Force. People come to Town Hall for all sorts of reasons. They come to buy beach parking stickers, they come to attend town meetings. They come to get information about their taxes and they come to get building permits and they come to visit the town attorney or supervisor, or trustees or assessors or building inspectors. Also, at least until the department moved to a new building in Hampton Bays, they would come to Town Hall to go to court, to answer traffic violations or answer to crimes that they might or might not have committed. As many as a million people every year have passed that sign since it was put up. It’s a quiet reminder

of the diversity of ethnic cultures that live in Southampton and how we must all get along, most particularly on this site. On the afternoon of July 26, 2011, however, a not-so-quiet encounter occurred on the walkway leading up to Town Hall. That was the day that, for the first time, a same sex marriage was conducted in Town Hall. One hour before the wedding, demonstrators arrived carrying signs reading “Marriage: One Man, One Woman.” Placing themselves at the foot of the steps, they began their protest, explaining to anyone who would listen that because the Bible refers to homosexuality as abomination, marriage should be reserved for all time as a bond between a man and a woman. According to the protesters, they were treated inappropriately. Within minutes of their arrival, they later said, police officers came out and told them they were not allowed to protest where they were. They were told to move to a spot farther away from the front entrance, across from the driveway, which one of the officers told them was the “free speech zone.” A few of the protesters went up and into the building to ask a question, but were told they had to leave. Another protester said he went up to the building to ask for a phone number and was told that he could not be inside “under threat of arrest.” Eventually, they all did leave. But they were not done with this. Exactly one year later, on July 25, 2012, the demonstrators returned to protest again. This time they brought video

cameras. But this time nobody came out to tell them to go to the “free speech zone.” So they finished their protest and they left. But they were still not done with this. On December 11, the Town was hit with a lawsuit filed by the protesters. It was against Southampton Town and Southampton Village and their respective police departments, and it was filed by the Reverend Donald Havrilla of the Southampton Full Gospel Church, James Boyd IV, Richard Morabito, Patrick Impelli, Joseph Collins and Maria Favilla, all of whom claimed they were present at the time of the incident and they had encountered violations of their rights to freedom of speech, free exercise of religion, equal access, equal protection and the right to due process of law, which are required by the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution of the United States. In the lawsuit, it was specifically noted that other groups had held rallies and protests on the sidewalk at the bottom of the steps of Town Hall adjacent to the anti-bias sign. These groups included the Town’s Policemen’s Benevolent Association and the Southampton Town AntiBias Task Force and that what they received on that day in July of 2011 was a different thing entirely. The Town was required to respond to this lawsuit and they did. They denied the allegations. However, at that time, there would be no move to remove the anti-bias sign. Maybe somebody thought that removing it immediately after the filing of the lawsuit would be detrimental to (Continued on next page) their defense.

Sign (Continued from previous page)

Dune (Continued from page 20)

This past week, however, this lawsuit was settled between the parties. The Town agreed to pay the group’s legal fees, an amount reported by Patch to be roughly $40,000. They also announced that they were going to remove the anti-bias sign, which they did last week, and then this week they voted to rescind the town law that created the anti-bias zone. But that’s not the end of it, either. Though there are many grand entrances to town halls in the Hamptons and everywhere else around the country that do not have signs announcing that certain behavior, particularly behavior involving prejudice, is not allowed in that location, it seems the Town Board of Southampton has decided that they LIKE

having a sign out front. At the present time, they are working on the wording for a new one. This will no longer be a “bias free zone.” That’s too controversial, perhaps. Instead, they are thinking in terms of one that would “encourage civility,” they have said. Nobody could object to the town wanting everyone to “be civil” with one another, could they? I mean, what’s the harm with that? Angry words not welcome. Keep it bottled up inside, and if you can’t do that, let it out, but not here, not on the front steps of the Southampton Town Hall. Go across the street. There’s a rude-is-ok zone over there.

DAY FIVE Fire out. Spam, we’re off at dawn. By 11 a.m., approaching the 60-foot level, we are nearing the end of our strength for the day, and I instruct that we go just eight more feet and then make camp, just below the cloud level. As we are making camp on a steep slope that we have tried to make into a large level step with our shovels so the tents won’t slide, Helga Higgleston, the sister of Thomas Higgleston, loses her footing and falls 50 feet down to her death. We radio down for the chopper to pick her up. We try to comfort Thomas, who is distraught. He tries to jump after her, but we restrain him. Unfortunately, we have to tie him to a mule and have some of the Bonackers shepherd him down. He and his sister had climbed K2. It is a great loss. We are now down to two mules. But we will press on in the morning. We build a fire, but nobody can sing or eat. At 11 p.m., however, we come out of our tents to talk and roast marshmallows. DAY SIX We enter the clouds. It’s now impossible to see anyone but we stay in touch by helmet radio. At 92 feet, we have all become exhausted. A great sandstorm now has come up inside the clouds, and I order everyone to shovel furiously to keep from being inundated and we have to stop. When I order us to press on, we can’t be far from the top, I find that Harold Moss, who’s down the rope 10 feet behind me, is not answering. I fear the worst. And now, the rope will not move. It must be the weight of the sand covering his body—it has to be—and so, sadly, I have no choice but to cut him free. This is a sad day, day six. I’m at 100 feet. I’m planting the Explorer Club flag here. We can’t be far from the top, though I can’t see it through the sandstorm and the fog. Now Armstrong is not answering. I press on. One hundred and five feet. One hundred and ten. I’m now fending off osprey. I have deployed the cardboard, but I can barely hold it because of the wind. And now there are bugs or something eating away at my feet and legs beneath the sand. I’m digging furiously. I will make it. I can see the top now. The clouds cleared for a moment. It is just 10 or 15 feet further on. Now they close in again. If only I can…

EDITOR’S NOTE When the storm ended, those at base camp ordered the helicopter up to try and find survivors, but they had disappeared without a trace. The world has lost five of the greatest living climbers. And the Walking Dunes remains unclimbed, triumphant. Three months later, on the north face of the dune, below the cloud line, a diary was spit out into the trail behind it. It’s from this diary that we publish the entries above. Let them be a testament to the power of nature and its ability to conquer over all in the end. The New York State Parks Department, in which the Walking Dunes are located, has passed a law banning all future attempts to get to the top of the Walking Dunes. We wish they had done so before. A memorial for the lost climbers will be held on the lawn of the Montauk Lighthouse next year, one year to the day from their loss, which we estimate as September 29, 2013.

Southampton and Tuckahoe Consider Merger, Vote Oct. 29 By brendan j. o’reilly

he East End is peppered with school districts large and small, and with a population that dwindles after the summer, many districts serve but a few students—but two districts on the South Fork are poised to merge, changing a long-established paradigm for the education of local students and who bears the brunt of the tax burden. Southampton and Tuckahoe residents will vote next week on whether Southampton School District should annex the smaller Tuckahoe School District. Small districts on the East End don’t have their own high schools—or even middle schools in some cases—but rather pay tuition to bigger districts who accept their students. For instance, Westhampton Beach High School serves residents of the Westhampton Beach School District as well as students from the Quogue, East Quogue and RemsenburgSpeonk districts. East Hampton High School accepts students from Springs, Sagaponack, Wainscott and Montauk school districts.  Merging school districts could save money by eliminating redundant administrators or closing school buildings, but wild swings in property tax rates make mergers a hard pill to swallow, especially in times of economic stress. Southampton School District has been the receiving district for most of Tuckahoe’s 9ththrough 12th-graders for decades, but in recent years Tuckahoe residents have decried how

What will become of the Tuckahoe School?

their taxes keep rising to be able to afford Southampton High School tuition. The 2013-14 tax rate for the Tuckahoe School District is estimated at $7.50 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. That means that taxes on a home assessed at $500,000 would be $3,750 for the year, and for a $1 million home annual school taxes would amount to $7,500. In

Southampton School District, the tax rate is just $2.42 per $1,000. A study commissioned by both districts to analyze a potential merger estimates that if Southampton annexes Tuckahoe the tax rate for the 2014-15 school year will be $2.63 across the board. Current Tuckahoe School District residents could see their (Cont’d on next page)

tax rate dip 65%, while the tax rate could go up 8.7% for current Southampton School District residents. Southampton residents may balk at the tax hike, but district officials say that if the districts don’t merge, Tuckahoe could send its high school–age students elsewhere. Southampton would stand to lose millions of dollars in revenue annually and could have to cut programs and lay off faculty as a result, all while raising taxes anyway. Initial referendums—straw votes among residents of each district—are scheduled for Tuesday, October 29. If the majority of voters in Southampton and the majority in Tuckahoe both approve the idea, a second round of voting, which will be binding, will follow before the end of the year. “For the East End, I think a lot of school districts are watching the Tuckahoe-Southampton situation very, very closely,” said New York State Assemblyman Fred Thiele, of Sag Harbor, whose assembly district includes the South Fork and Shelter Island. Other school districts have contacted him to inquire about consolidation, he said, and Tuckahoe and Southampton are a test case for many.

Current Tuckahoe School District residents’ tax rate could dip 65%; current Southampton School District residents’ tax rate could rise 8.7%. “My assembly district has 21 school districts in it,” Thiele pointed out. “There’s no other assembly district that has as many school districts as I do.” He said that any district with fewer than 1,000 students should at least look into consolidation, adding, “It’s not only about taxes; it’s also about the quality of school programs, etc.” Thiele said the state should never force consolidation on districts, but it should encourage a merger when the circumstances call for one by offering financial incentives. Special state legislation may also be required, he said, noting that was the case when Eastport and South Manor school districts merged to form Eastport South Manor School District in 2003.  The merger came after 20 years of substantial population growth, and it was a way of keeping taxes relatively stable, according to Thiele. He could not say whether the move was objectively necessary. “Necessity is in the eye of the beholder,” Thiel said, “but in the case of Eastport South Manor, if they had not undertaken that merger, taxes would have been much higher in that area.” Vote on the Proposed Merger

starring as the title character’s crazy momma, Margaret White. For the uninitiated, Carrie is the story of a shy, lonely teenage girl who discovers she has telekinetic powers—which she makes good use of after being humiliated at her senior prom. Directed by Kimberly Peirce and based on the novel by Stephen King, this intense, disturbing feature is the perfect Halloween outing for adults.


Welcome to the first installment of my new column, PopHampton, where I’ll give you an East End perspective on everything pop culture, from film to art to everything in between. Having started my career as a copy editor for various entertainment magazines, I’m excited to be able to write about all the latest happenings with a Hamptons twist. ABC’s Hamptons-set primetime drama Revenge is back for a third season, and appears to have bounced back from the sterile sophomore slump it was in last year. Creator Mike Kelley may have had a strong vision for the guilty pleasure series, but it became clear after the millionth mention of “The Initiative” that he was aiming for something more action-oriented and less...Hamptonite. New head honcho Sunil Nayar appears to be channeling the over-the-top soap tropes viewers enjoyed in the first season: big parties, beautiful people, stunning fashion, sexy people, melodramatic confrontations, romance and a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek. Revenge airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. on ABC. Who do you think shot Emily Thorne? For more, check out my weekly recaps on DansPapers. com—and like it on Facebook! October was a big month for film buffs, with the 21st Annual Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) lighting up big screens all over the East End October 10–14. There were many excellent films shown at HIFF this year, some of which you’ll likely find in expanded release in the coming months. Kill Your Darlings, directed by John Krokidas and starring Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan and Michael C. Hall, was the opening film and featured a talkback with DeHaan. The film is the true story a little-known incident in which a young Allen Ginsberg was unwittingly involved in the murder of professor David Kammerer by Lucien Carr in 1944. HIFF also hosted the East Coast Premiere August: Osage County, directed by John Wells and starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts based on the play by Tracy Letts. The family melodrama tells the story of the Westons, who are thrust into turmoil when their patriarch disappears. As always, Streep has received well-deserved Oscar buzz for her portrayal of drug addicted, cancer-suffering Violet. And some big stars were on hand for HIFF’s “A Conversation With” series. Helena Bonham-Carter discussed her role as Elizabeth Taylor in BBC America’s Burton and Taylor, directed by Richard Laxton; and Bruce Dern appeared to talk about Nebraska, directed by Alexander Payne, a comedy/drama about an old down-and-out man and his son on a road trip to claim a fortune the father may not have actually won. Up Late With Alec Baldwin, the Hamptons fave’s new MSNBC late-night talk show, premiered on October 11. Baldwin chatted Manhattan mayoral candidate Bill Deblasio on his various views and ideas for change if he’s elected mayor. Baldwin, who recently welcomed baby Carmen into the world with wife Hilaria, also hosts the WNYC podcast Here’s The Thing.

Some viewers were apparently taken aback by Up Late’s serious tone; people expecting something akin to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon instead got more of a Larry King-type experience. Up Late With Alec Baldwin airs Friday nights at 10 p.m. on MSNBC. October’s winding down, and that means one thing: Halloween. I’ve always been a big fan of horror films, and there’s one in theaters now that has a Hamptons connection—a remake of the iconic Brian DePalma film Carrie with Montauk resident Julianne Moore

This Week’s Cover Artist: Anne-Marie Kornachuk By MARION WOLBERG-WEISS

The image on this week’s cover by Anne-Marie Kornachuk is not only striking but also ambiguous, especially when considering its title, “Weightless: Mad Tea Party 2.” The “weightless” idea we can easily understand because the figure is floating. (The artist relates this quality to not having responsibilities.) But what about the “Mad Tea Party?” We could associate it with American politics and current events, but Kornachuk is Canadian and a little removed from our state of affairs. Instead, the image’s title is a reference to Alice in Wonderland. Again, a nod to ambiguity. Unlike many artists, Kornachuk was trained to think about the meaning of her work first, then figure out the technical side later, a difficult feat because her realistic style is so precise and detailed. But she has managed through the years to bring both content and form together, creating images that some might label “conceptual.” Then again, we can also appreciate the literal beauty of her subjects, without considering any hidden meanings. You studied art at Concordia University in Montreal. What influence did that have on your work?

My art teachers taught us to think about theory and Postmodernism. We were taught how to make a painting work. I learned how to layer meaning into my art, to learn how to see. One teacher, Guido Molinari, was particularly influential. He was a color field painter. Technique is so important, too, especially your realistic style. How did you learn about color and everything else that they didn’t teach you at Concordia? Your skills get better every day that you paint. But I took drawing, which is important. However, I didn’t know color. It took me years to learn it. I finally went to a hardware store and showed them my wedding dress. They showed me what was in the color white. Eureka. After that, I could match any color. How did studying in Montreal, inspire you? It’s a city that totally embraces art. People there think that being an artist is a valid pursuit. They don’t ask you how you make money, like they do in Toronto, where I lived before moving to this small town where my husband and I are now, Lakefield. What influenced your realistic style, in particular? My father was a realistic painter. I got interested in that style during my last year of high school. It’s not like I was painting since I was a child.

Your use of drapes and folds is a significant part of your style. What artists influenced you in that regard? I loved Caravaggio. I knew I could never own his work, so I thought I’d better use some of his techniques. Gerhard Richter is also incredibly compelling. Bernini’s sculpture is another inspiration. What are some of your favorite cities or locations? The Meatpacking District in New York. It’s gritty and down-to-earth. I find New Orleans so vibrant and it has so much character. I love Venice, too. It’s the coolest place on earth. These are authentic places, not fantasy, yet your images often seem like fantasy, not real. Yes, my figures are removed from the real world; they have significant emotional space, internal drama. My images are a little strange, too, they’re not just beautiful. I don’t idealize the human body. What will you be doing in five years? I won’t change my medium, which is oil. I’m excited about the possibility of changing directions, but I don’t know what it will be. Anne-Marie Kornachuk’s works are available for viewing at RJD Gallery in Sag Harbor, 90 Main Street. 631-725-1161, Kornachuk will be having a solo exhibit at the gallery in May 2014.

I’s on the Island, Monitoring Your Every Move By sally flynn

“Where’s your ferry ticket, Margie? The guy is coming.” “Joy, we’ve had a few changes here in recent months. Everything’s getting computerized. Just lean your head out the window and follow instructions.” “What?” “Ma’am, please look into the camera on my iPhone. Our new app processes tickets, counts customers and runs a breathalyzer test all at once. Okay, got your picture, please breathe into the usb port for your alcohol level and lick the screen so we have a DNA sample.” “I haven’t been drinking. You don’t need my DNA, I’m just a passenger in a car.” “Lots of people say that. They ride in the passenger seat to avoid detection. You might intend to drive on the Island tonight. This way we can monitor you while you’re here to help you avoid the temptation of driving under the influence.” “How?” “Community people. I download your DNA into our ‘I’s On You’ app so everyone can ID you. Don’t you agree that drunk driving is wrong?” “Of course, but I have not had anything to drink today.” “But you might. The day’s not over yet.”’ “FINE! But I’m still not breathing or licking anything.” “I wish you didn’t feel that way, but have a nice day.” “Margie, what the hell is going on here?” “You’ll see. IGA next, let’s get some cheesecake therapy going. You’ll have to buy it, I’m not allowed.” “Not allowed?” “Not allowed. ‘I’s On You’ app says I’m too short for my weight. I either have to grow five inches or lose 35 pounds. Until then I can’t have any carbs. But you’re thin enough to buy cheesecake, and I can get us wine.” “So can I.” “I bet not.

Nevermind, I see the readout.” “What’s it say?” “Says I am 5’ 8”, 121 pounds. I am underweight by six pounds. I am authorized to purchase three carb items.” “Excellent. Get two cheesecakes and one bag of chips.” “You pick out the cheesecakes.” “Can’t. If I step over the scanner, the alarm

will go off.” ”Can we get some ice cream?” “No, nobody qualifies for that any more. I’ll get the rest of the things on my list, you finish yours and remember not to get in the same line as me.” “Why not? Let me guess, they’ll suspect I’m buying carbs for you?” “Yes, they will.” “So what? Doesn’t that qualify as harassment or something?” “No, because there’s an absence of malice and no real damages.

Getting Online to Get Social By MATTHEW APFEL

My oldest daughter turned 10 a few weeks ago. Her birthday gift list included the usual suspects: sketch book, colored pencils, lacrosse sticks, Harry Potter DVDs. There was one item, buried toward the bottom of her list, that I wasn’t

expecting to see. No, it wasn’t a bottle of scotch or pole dancing lessons, but it was almost as dangerous: she wanted her own social media account.

Hmm. Well, that’s interesting. My wife and I both work at digital media companies, so it’s definitely in our financial interests to see legions of 10-year-old kids hooked on Twitter, Facebook, etc. As a parent, these were uncharted waters. After some back and forth, we came up with a plan: she could open one social media account. This way, I explained, all of her relatives and friends could easily follow her and stay in touch. I skipped the part about spying on her every move. But which site would it be? I made my move and recommended Club Penguin, even offering a premium membership. She rolled her eyes, and explained that she hadn’t been on “baby


weddings to remember

sites” in five years. Realizing the inevitable, we decided to focus on five contenders. YouTube My daughter really likes to make videos with Dad’s old iPhone. Some we edit together, but most of the time they’re just raw files. YouTube also has brand appeal; kids are fascinated by the notion of having their own “channel.” But YouTube lost out for two reasons. First, the platform is kind of boring; YouTube lacks the social aspects of its competitors. Second, the mobile version is clumsy—there’s no easy way to upload and share a video. At least not in my daughter’s view. Twitter We gave this one a lot of consideration. Twitter definitely has buzz—a cool name and upcoming IPO will do that for you. And my daughter likes the Vine video sharing feature. But she couldn’t get her head around the concept of “followers.” Her words: “It’s really hard to tell who anyone is with all the names and symbols and abbreviations.” Interesting observation. Maybe less isn’t more. Facebook Another strong contender. My girl loves the ability to see what her friends are up to—and vice versa. She also digs the “what are you doing now?” box at the top of the page. But she keenly observed Facebook’s one fatal flaw: Where’s the video? It’s true. YouTube has a great video platform with lame social, while Facebook has great social hooks but rather, um, limited video capabilities. Next.

Tumblr The up-and-comer! Admittedly we have personal bias here. My wife works at Yahoo and did everything short of issuing stock warrants to convince our daughter to start tumbling. Tumblr’s mobile platform checked a lot of boxes: great phone version, really simple to use, easy photo-and-video sharing, to name a few. After thinking about it, she decided to hold off for now—because the only thing she really wants to do is share photos. And that leaves us with only one survivor…

Instagram The winner, in a stunning upset! On September 17, Instagram got its 12 billionth user, my daughter. I have to say, she’s active. She posts photos all the time, diligently logs and writes captions, and communicates with friends from the city and camp and all over. Best of all, I’ve only had to block four strangers so far. Maybe there’s so many users that the creepy dudes can’t find my daughter. At least, that’s what I keep telling myself. As I thought about our bake-off, I realized something. We live in a video-driven world, but the staying power of the photo is truly amazing. My daughter watches video everywhere. She’s awash in a sea of moving images, yet when given the choice, the still image is what prevailed. A picture truly is worth a thousand words— or billions of dollars if you’re lucky enough to own Instagram. Maybe Facebook really is the winner.

Who’s on First? What’s on Second? By kelly laffey

Something I didn’t anticipate about the Hamptons offseason is how packed the weekdays have become. Tuesdays are late nights publishing Dan’s Papers. Wednesdays are for run club with Lululemon in East Hampton (and time to indulge in my guiltypleasure television show, Nashville) and Thursday is trivia at Townline BBQ in Sagaponack. As the shorter daylight hours limit outdoor running time, turning to mind exercises is just a fun. Unfortunately, I had to recuse myself from last week’s trivia due to prior obligations, but it was upsetting to hear that “Baseball!” was one of the topics. I was born for this round. In the hopes that the Dan’s Papers team will read this before the questions are revealed, here are 10 fun facts to help them out. And 10 fun things to tide me over until Opening Day 2014. •October 14 marked the 10th anniversary of what Cubs incident? The “Steve Bartman Incident.” On October 14, 2003, the Chicago Cubs were playing the Florida Marlins (now named the Miami Marlins) in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series. Chicago was ahead 3–0 heading into the eighth inning, when Florida’s Luis Castillo hit a foul ball into right field. Bartman, an excited fan in the stands, reached for it, effectively deflecting it from Cubs outfielder Moises Alou. Had Alou caught the ball, it would have been the second out of the inning, and the Cubs would have been four outs away from winning the game and heading to the World Series. As the Cubs’ luck would have it, the Marlins instead went on to score eight runs that inning, winning the game 8–3 and going on to win the decisive Game 7. •What significant baseball moments happened on May 6? Babe Ruth hits his first home run, in a 1915 game against the Yankees; Willie Mays was born, in 1931; Roger Marris hits his 100th home run, in 1961; Darryl Strawberry debuts with the Mets, in 1983. •Which teams have never won a World Series title? San Diego Padres, Colorado Rockies, Houston Astros, Washington Nationals (formerly the Montreal Expos), Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Rays and the Milwaukee Brewers (formerly the Seattle Pilots) •What team switched from the National League to the American League at the start of the 2013 season? The Houston Astros. •What is the “Shot Heard ’Round the World,” in reference to baseball? The 1951 National League pennant playoff series pitted the Brooklyn Dodgers against the rival New York Giants. The “Shot Heard ’Round the World” refers to Bobby Thomson’s home run in the bottom of the ninth during the final game of the series, giving the Giants a 5–4 win and leading them to the World Series. •What’s the oldest stadium in baseball? Fenway Park (born in 1912) •What’s the last standing stadium shared by baseball and the NFL? The Coliseum in Oakland, which is home to the Oakland Athletics and the Oakland Raiders

•Why was the former home of the Mets named Shea Stadium? It was named to honor William A. Shea, a lawyer who brought National League baseball back to New York. •How many teams play in Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League? Name them. Seven: The Center Moriches Battlecats, North Fork Ospreys, Riverhead Tomcats, Sag Harbor Whalers, Shelter Island Bucks, Southampton Breakers and Westhampton Aviators. •Who do I want to win the World Series?

The Red Sox. Former Met Carlos Beltran, now with the World Series–bound St. Louis Cardinals, broke the hearts of every Mets fan when he struck out looking to end the Mets vs. Cardinals 2006 National League Championship Series. I’ve rooted against the Cards ever since. Here’s to the Red Sox, and here’s to the Dan’s trivia team winning the trivia trophy come April. And if you’re ever at Townline on a Thursday, come say hi.

LIRR Extends Service The Best “Best Of” Ever to Greenport GREENPORT: Getting to the North Fork to check out the fall foliage and harvest festivities just got easier, as the LIRR has extended its weekend service to Greenport through Thanksgiving weekend. The service investment, which was proposed at an August 2013 public hearing, extends weekend service on the Ronkonkoma Branch to and from Greenport for approximately 10 weeks. Prior to the proposal, weekend Greenport service ran from Memorial Day Weekend through Columbus Day Weekend; it now runs from early May and into November of each year. “Throughout my career I have fought for Suffolk’s East End residents to insure access to services,” said Senator Kenneth LaValle. “The restoration of service re-establishes access for residents as well as visitors to Suffolk County’s scenic East End.” Those who want to visit the North Fork’s wineries and farm stands can take a 10:35 a.m. or 3:37 p.m. train from the Ronkonkoma station to Greenport and a 1:11 p.m. and 6:11 p.m. to return “The LIRR understands the importance of access to the East End for its customers,” said LIRR President Helena E. Williams. “Fall has become a very popular season on the North Fork. We’re glad we can provide the extra service for our customers.” Visit to plan your North Fork weekend!

Save the Date! FARHAMPTON: “How I Met Your Mother” is in the thick of its ninth and final season, and there’s an East End twist–the whole season takes place over the course of one weekend, as Barney Stinson and Robin Scherbatsky prepare to get married in the Hamptons (the fictional hamlet of Farhampton). Fans of the show may have caught Ted reading an issue of Dan’s Papers last season. Check out page 36 for our Dan’s Papers wedding guide.

EAST END: Voting for the 2013 Dan’s Best of the Best competition ended at 11:59:59 p.m. on October 24, and it proved to be a recordsetting event. More than 400,000 votes were cast as the 1500-plus nominees vied for recognition among the vast number of readers who turned out to tell us who they think are tops among businesses on the East End. Final counts are now being tallied, and all winners will be announced in the November 8 edition of Dan’s Papers and online at Honorees will be invited to attend the annual awards celebration, held this year on Nov. 15 at Suffolk Theater in Riverhead.

LI Aquarium to Offer Free Admission Friday in November

RIVERHEAD: Fins up for free aquarium admission! Long Island Aquarium & Exhibition Center will give thanks to its hometown by offering free admission for Riverhead township residents every Friday in November. “We want to acknowledge and express gratitude to our hometown,” explains owner Joe Petrocelli. “Offering free admission is just a small way of saying ‘thank you’ for the past 13 years.” The special no-cost Aquarium admission rate applies to Town of Riverhead residents only, who must show proof of residency upon entry. Residents of Riverhead, Wading River, Jamesport, Aquebogue, Laurel, Calverton, Baiting Hallow, Northville and parts of Manorville all qualify for the fin-tastic deal. The aquarium, which opened in 2000, features one of the largest all-living coral reef displays in the northern hemisphere, a 120,000-gallon shark tank, year-round sea lion shows, numerous touch tanks and more than 100 exhibits and interactive experiences, including Shark Dive, Pirate Snorkel Adventure, Atlantis Explorer Tour Boat and Sea Lion Kiss.

The Golden Eagle Reopens on Newton Lane in East Hampton EAST HAMPTON: Known as the oldest artist supplier in the Hamptons, The Golden Eagle has returned to East Hampton in a new, Newtown Lane location. The shop had been closed since September 24. Located directly across from the East Hampton Middle School, the new Golden Eagle, which opened its doors on Friday, will feature the supplies and gifts local artists, hobbyists and children had enjoyed buying at the old location. Unfortunately there is no longer room for classes, but art exhibitions will likely continue.

Brown Tide Returns to Long Island LONG ISLAND: Brown Tide, which can be devastating for hard clams and other shellfish, has returned to Long Island. Monitoring by the Gobler Laboratory at Stony Brook Southampton reveals that a brown tide, which began during September, has intensified this month to nearly 1,000,000 cells per milliliter in central Great South Bay, as of Oct. 8. Densities over 200,000 cells per milliliter were also present in western Great South Bay, Moriches Bay, Quantuck Bay and Shinnecock Bay. Densities above 50,000 cells per milliliter can be harmful to marine life. “The occurrence of a fall brown tide is not uncommon, particularly after a summer with a dense and widespread brown tide,” said Christopher Gobler, Professor of Marine Biology at Stony Brook Southampton. The occurrence of brown tide in the fall can be problematic for shellfish, as the season is a key period of ‘conditioning’ for clams. When presented with the right food during the fall, they are more likely to have a successful reproductive season the following spring. When presented with an extended brown tide, the next generation of clams may fail. How much this brown tide effects condition may depend on how long it persists.

A little TLC before your fall wedding

Should You Hire a Wedding Planner?


rom the very first moments of your engagement until the day you both say “I Do,” there’s a great deal of planning involved as you anticipate your wedding. The questions are seemingly endless: Where should I have the wedding? How many guests can I invite? What kind of dress will I select? With so many details to cover while managing everyday life—work, finances, home—there’s a solution: Just hire a wedding planner! Wedding planners are a great option for anyone who dreams of their wedding going off without a hitch—no pun intended. “I tell my clients that are on the fence about spending the money on this service that using an event planner removes any stress you may have that day regarding logistics, vendors and overall flow,” says Deborah Minarik of Deborah Minarik Extraordinary Events, a Long Island-based event planning service. “We help with the timeline, get your wedding party through the ceremony and pictures and work with all vendors to make sure everyone is working off the same page.” Reverend Karen Campbell at Christ Episcopal Church in Sag Harbor affirms that the most beneficial aspect of a wedding planner is the stress that he or she helps to alleviate. She notes that couples don’t often have a sense of all the details that go into planning a wedding, and the wedding planner takes care of the minutia of the day, allowing the couples to be more focused on each other as they

embark on the next step in their relationship together. “A wedding planner allows couples to concentrate on family and friends, which is a huge blessing,” says Reverend Campbell. “They can help to put couples at ease, because they know all of the fine details that go into planning a day.” Minarik admits that there are unique challenges to planning an East End wedding, especially The payoff during the summer when navigating traffic and back roads can be tricky. “Being crazy-organized is the key to a successful wedding out east,” says Minarik. “Being early for everything and moving everyone along in a timely manner really is key to helping our guests find unique venues that are off the beaten path.” There are many other reasons why you should hire a wedding planner. Budgeting: It’s important to stay within a budget, and expert event planners understand this. A wedding planner is an extension of you and fully understands how to work under the guidelines of an appropriate budget. Time Management: In many cases we can get caught up in the minor details, creating unnecessary stress. A wedding planner has the ability to see the overall picture, allowing for adequate time-management. Experience: Each event company offers extensive resources and industry connections. Peace of Mind:

Wedding planners allow the bride-to-be to enjoy the entire experience; you can be confident that every last element will be taken care of. “If needed, EPs have relationships and friendships with vendors that they like to use, which makes the planning process even easier,” says Minarik. “We can’t take away all of the wedding day jitters, obviously, but we can work with her to ensure that all details of her big day are taken care of and the bride can relax and concentrate on her guests, her party, and best of all, her new hubby!” Your wedding day should be one of the most special days of your life. Don’t let the pressure of it all overwhelm you. It’s important to evaluate everything from start to finish and decide whether or not you can (or wish to) handle every detail on your own. If you have a dedicated wedding party or a mom who loves making every decision for you, you’re all set. If not, I recommend checking out a few local event planners to see exactly what they have to offer.

Afraid to Ask? Gay Wedding Myths, Debunked By lee meyer


ith gay marriage legalized in New York State and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) deemed unconstitutional, same-sex couples have become more “mainstream” and been able to go about their lives in a much more open way. While there have been great strides, many people still wonder about the nuances of a gay wedding, as far as how the ceremony is performed. Is there a bride and groom? Who gets walked down the aisle? How does a wedding party work? Will all venues accommodate same-sex couples? Ronkonkoma resident Robbie Tursi-Masick—also known by his internet moniker “WonderRobbie,” famous for elaborate lip-synched performances on YouTube—married Hofstra University psychology professor Kevin Masick in 2009 in Connecticut, and

he was able to answer some awkward questions without so much as a blink. Tursi-Masick admits to being the more outgoing person in his relationship and notes that his wedding followed a rather traditional structure. “Kevin didn’t want to ‘walk down the aisle,’” he says. “He walked down by himself. His mother was walked down the aisle by his brother, but after that...I was the bride!” he laughs, clarifying that “I was the last one down the aisle. It was decided that he’d be up there, then the rest of the wedding party, and I’d be the last one. That was something I’ve always wanted.” While their wedding was filled with family and friends, Tursi-Masick did encounter a few silly questions along the way. “Someone actually asked me if I was going to be in a dress! It was because of some drag shows I’ve performed in,” he says. TursiMasick was a featured performer in the off-Broadway

show Ultimate Drag Off, but he was taken aback and insulted by the question, which he says was asked by a friend. “Our wedding was basically the same as any straight wedding, but there were no garter belts, no bouquet tossing and no chicken dance.” The wedding may have been traditional, but who proposed? “We talked about it beforehand,” explains Tursi-Masick. “[By the time he] proposed, we were together for four years. I started talking about it two years into the relationship. He wasn’t commitmentphobic, but he was hesitant. I started the ball rolling, but I ended the conversation with, ‘When you’re ready, you are going to be the one to propose.’ And then later he dropped hints. I’d jokingly look at Tiffany rings online, he’d ask which one I liked.” On Tursi-Masick’s 29th birthday, Kevin popped the question. “Kevin surprised me with a blue Tiffany box and said, ‘This is the promise I said I’d make to you,’” says Tursi-Masick with a smile.

Two women getting married opens up the possibility of additional uncertainties. One question that comes up consistently: Is one woman supposed to wear a suit and the other a dress? When Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi tied the knot, both wore white, but De Rossi wore a traditional wedding gown and DeGeneres wore a feminine suit. Hamptonite Cynthia Nixon wore a flowing, green dress at her wedding to Christine Marinoni, who wore a suit with a matching green tie. Long Island resident Loni Livingston thinks it all depends on the couple. “I plan on wearing a dress [when I marry my partner], and I think she will, as well,” she says. Livingston, who has been with her partner, Vanessa, for five years, thinks that she will likely be the one proposed to. “The whole wedding process, I think, is more important to me than it is to Vanessa,” she muses. “So I’m sure that when the time comes, I’m going to play more of the “female” role [in planning the wedding]. But I still plan on getting a ring for her. And as long as she wants to walk down the aisle, we both will.” These examples may be more traditional, but there’s no set way to get married—just like straight people. Couples should do what makes them happiest, and remember that getting married is supposed to be a celebration of love, be it in a suit or a gown.

Beautiful Details at Topping Rose House


opping Rose House in Bridgehampton, the restaurant and hotel, opened to great fanfare just over a year ago. As the East End’s newest wedding venue, Topping Rose accommodates wedding ceremonies and receptions year-round, with meals sweetly completed by pastry chef Cassandra Shupp. Shupp came to the culinary arts through the arts, earning her Bachelors degree in visual arts from North Carolina State University. After graduation she realized her love for baking was stronger than her desire to be an artist, though the two fields have much in common. “Art is about color, balance, texture, all the things I was learning in my mother’s kitchen growing up in Pennsylvania,” she says. “The food has to look good, so putting a dish and a whole meal together

uses a lot of the same ideas. I worked as a waitress for a bit but I was always envious of the chefs and the freedom they had creating the meal back in the kitchen.” She moved to New York City in 2009 from North Carolina to pursue her passion for baking and enrolled in the career pastry program at the Institute of Culinary Education. Her career got on the fast track as she honed her baking and pastry skills in renowned restaurant kitchens throughout New York including chef Daniel Boulud’s DB Bistro Moderne. She then became a full-time pastry chef at Bar Boulud. A year later Shupp moved on to Gramercy Tavern where she worked with pastry chef Nancy Olson. Shupp was connected with chef Tom Colicchio’s team through a fellow pastry chef and learned about the position they were looking to fill at Topping Rose

House. She was excited by the prospect of working at the new resort and restaurant with its access to fresh ingredients from the property’s farm. This rising culinary star, at just 27, had only two weeks notice after getting the job to move from New York City to the Hamptons and to get a car and an apartment. “It was really exciting to come out here from the city,” she says happily in the luxe second floor library of the Topping Rose House. “I came right at the end of last season so had plenty of time to get acquainted with the restaurant and the area. It was time to move on from my work at Gramercy Tavern as I felt I had learned as much as I could in the position I had there. No one has a garden for their restaurant in the city or the access to such wonderful farms as they do here, so it’s a whole new experience.” At Colicchio’s East End restaurant, she created the seasonal dessert menu prepared with locally sourced ingredients, including fruit from the property’s oneacre garden. “It’s really fun to design a whole new menu, it has so many elements,” Shupp says. “A great dessert menu has to have ice cream and sorbets, something chocolate, a fruit dish and perhaps a custard. I also take into consideration the whole style of the main menu and what’s seasonally available. Since it’s our first year with the garden, I wasn’t able to use much fruit at all, herbs yes, but the fruit plants have to mature before I can take from them. We source our apples and pears we use Milk Pail, who always have great products.” We had so much in the beginning of the season but we’ve been so busy that many of the ingredients have run down. The garden is large but our blueberries are all gone, so we had to adjust the menu. It’s great to change up the desserts but sometimes customers get disappointed when a favorite item isn’t available anymore. We’re doing 350 to 400 meals a day so items were bound to sell out.” The summer fruit bounty found its way into a lemon thyme sorbet, peach tarte, a cheesecake with berry compote, and ice creams including unusual flavors such as sweet corn and Stumptown Coffee. A peanut butter chocolate tart is finished off with grape sauce. She also bakes the restaurant’s signature potato rolls. When she’s not in the kitchen, Shupp has settled into a cozy place in Sag Harbor with her darling Shepherd dog that has one blue eye. “Sag Harbor is great for having a dog, he loves to walk the bay parks and on the beach. When I go home now to visit my mom is always asking me how she’s doing in the kitchen. I tell her ‘Mom your cooking is always the best,’ but it’s funny that she feels a little insecure.” Topping Rose House, One Bridgehampton – Sag Harbor Turnpike, Bridgehampton, 631-537-0870,

Drink in the whole North Fork!

So much to see and do this weekend!

By nicholas chowske


ella Vita is Italian for “the good life,” and that’s exactly what’s going on at Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard on Peconic Lane in Peconic. This rustic winery was founded in 2007 by Anthony and Lisa Sannino when what started as a hobby, nearly 20 years ago, became their passion. The Sanninos first came to the North Fork to pick grapes to make their own wine at home, and within a few short years, they had built a house on a vineyard of their own in the heart of Wine Country, and Sannino Bella Vita was born. In addition to an award-winning winery, the Sanninos also run a bed and breakfast by the same name nestled in the grape vines of Cutchogue. While many of Long Island’s vineyards have won awards for their wines, Sannino Bella Vita included, none have won them for their tours—until now. Sannino Bella Vita’s tour was ranked third in the nation by the website TripAdvisor, one of the Internet’s largest travel sites. The entire facility is tucked into an historic barn. The tasting room, with its rough, bare-wood walls has a tremendous view of the pressing and fermenting room through a glass wall at the end of the bar. Sannino Bella Vita offers two flight options: a full flight of eight wines for $15, and a half-flight of four wines for $8. This is the first winery I’ve been to that does their tastings side-by-side, which I particularly enjoyed, as it gives you the chance to taste the subtle differences between two similar wines. The first wine I tasted was the 2012 riesling, which

friday, october 25

is Sannino’s only wine made from grapes grown in the Finger Lakes region. This riesling was crisp and mildly sweet, with notes of citrus and honey and had a nice balance between sweetness and acidity. After the Riesling, I tasted Sannino’s two chardonnays side-by-side. First was the 2012 chardonnay, which is steel fermented and finished in oak, giving it the buttery, oak flavor I love, without overpowering the subtle flavors of ripe fruit and citrus. I was able to compare this with the 2012 Chilly Day Chardonnay, which had quite a different character, considering they came from the same grapes. This chardonnay, which is entirely steelfermented, is much brighter with more residual sugar, making it a bit sweeter. The second two wines I compared were the 2012 Bianca White Merlot, and the 2012 Snow Rosé of Merlot. The Bianca White Merlot is a white wine made from red merlot grapes. It has a lot of peach on the nose, with a subtle grapefruit finish. The Snow Merlot, which has a much deeper pink color, is vibrant and sweet with notes of watermelon and strawberry. Moving into the true reds, I tasted the 2010 merlot, which took gold at the New York Food and Wine Competition this past summer. This deep red wine comes from grapes grown on 23-year-old merlot vines, that are then aged for 22 months in French and Hungarian oak. The result is a velvety-smooth red with black cherry and plum flavors and just a hint of spice. The next pairing I tasted was the 2010 Prima

A Taste of Sannino Bella Vita

Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard in Peconic

Rossa and the 2010 Spotlight. The Prima Rossa is a Bordeaux blend consisting of 50% cabernet sauvignon, 33% cabernet franc and 17% merlot. This red bursts with dark berries and licorice on the nose and is rich with plum, tobacco and herb flavors on the palate. The Spotlight is Sannino’s blend of 85% petit verdot and 15% cabernet sauvignon. Deeper in color than the Prima Rossa, this red has rich notes of cedar and spice on the nose, complimenting the dark cherry and plum flavors of its velvety finish. No wine tasting would be complete without tasting a dessert wine, and Sannino offers something relatively unique—a spiced-wine. Served warm, this red blend is infused with mulling spices—cinnamon, nutmeg and clove—and tastes like a warm glass of apple pie. This is the perfect wine for a fall day. For more information, visit

Chas Addams Exhibit a Halloween Treat n a crisp Sunday afternoon in October, with leaves beginning to turn, what could be more fitting than a visit to the Chas Addams exhibition at the Southampton Center? Chas Addams: Family and Friends is a delightful showing of The Addams Family creator and The New Yorker illustrator’s original drawings. Designed by architect Grosvenor Atterbury in the late 19th century, the former home to the Parrish Art Museum, now the Southampton Center, is a befitting venue; seeped in history and charm. Around the side of the building, the old brick pathway is covered in fallen leaves, side doors and windows boarded shut and fanciful, heavy iron gates evoke a Halloween mood—that feeling of curiosity and intrigue of the past, each year drawing us closer to the realm of ghosts, goblins and other distressed souls. Pumpkins atop haystacks adorn the entryway of the exhibition, behind them an enlarged drawing of the old Victorian dilapidated Addams Family mansion, greeting visitors on their way in. Once inside, the mood is lifted with Addams’ witty and comical drawings and captions. Illustrations range in date from the 1940s to late ’80s and in subject matter from the ghoulish and macabre to poking fun at the mundane existence of couples married too long. His references stretch far and wide, indicating he was learned, savvy and of course, a brilliantly talented illustrator.

provide a relief from everyday life. In “Sad Movie,” Uncle Fester is found laughing amongst a weeping audience. Spooky yet lighthearted Halloween motifs prevail in works like “Kitty Cauldron,” “Witches Cocktail,” and “Halloween Taxi.” Addams references art history in “I think you know everybody,” 1979, where a young man arrives to a room filled with characters like Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Picasso’s Bathsheba and the couple from Grant Wood’s “American Gothic” (you know, the bespeckled man with the pitchfork and his disapproving female counterpart). At the risk of sounding cliché, this exhibition truly has something for everyone—young and old. The artworks in the show come from the Tee and Charles Addams Foundation, located on the couple’s property and nature sanctuary in Sagaponack. For more information, visit and Chas Addams: Family and Friends is on view through November 3, 2013 and is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The Southampton Center is located at 25 Jobs Lane, Southampton.

Mostly in pen, ink and wash on paper, and a few in color, his pictures draw you into his quintessential New York world. Scenes are often from apartment buildings, overlooking streets below, and if depicted out of town, his people are still of a midcentury New York culture; but with an accessible anonymity so we can all have a chuckle. With captions like, “Please let’s not talk about your day,” whereby an older couple sit near a fire in a 12th-century-looking, cavernous room, the woman with her knitting at her lap and the man with a pickaxe leaning on his chair, Addams touches on the timeless Entrance display humor in male-female relationships. In “The Wedding Cake,” 1940, there’s little need for a caption as the new (large) bride bites the head off the cake-topper groom figurine as her new husband, slight and small in comparison, watches in puzzlement and horror. “Coliseum,” 1950, depicts a tourist couple overlooking the Roman ruins with a glimpse into the man’s imagination, in which his wife is inside the Coliseum running from lions. The amusing husband/wife themes of The New Yorker illustrations come up again in the Addams Family drawings, yet now the fuddy-duddy wife is replaced with the glamorous Morticia. Goofy and whimsical, the Addams Family drawings

Movie Previews hot FLICKS THIS WEEK Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa The basic premise of Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa should be familiar to those who have followed the Jackass series. It’s a reality-TV inspired concept, where ordinary people are filmed reacting to outrageous behavior that they (supposedly) don’t know is planned and/or it’s faked. A concept as old as Candid Camera, in Bad Grandpa it’s surrounded by a backstory. Johnny Knoxville plays 86-year-old Irving Zisman who’s taking a road trip with his 8-year-old grandson Billy. The trip becomes a rampage as the “old man” commits all manner of atrocity and petty crimes against “real people” as the young Billy tags along. Of course, no effort is made to make Knoxville actually look 86, and his clumsy costuming and acting would not fool anyone with two eyes in their head, but leave that aside. Designed for a target audience of teenage boys who will laugh at videos of people purposely wiping out on skateboards, Bad Grandpa seeks to shock in its tastelessness but will likely only bore with its strained transgression. The Counselor Tailor-made for those who despise lawyers, The Counselor looks to be the A-list thriller of the year. The lawyer, played by Michael Fassbender and referred to only as “Counselor,” has the touch, and everything is going his way: money, cars, palatial home, and gorgeous fiancée Laura, played by Penelope Cruz. Whether unprepared for the pressures that can be

Spinning Plates Whether it’s locavorism in the posh precincts of Manhattan or the healthy-eating focus of First Lady Michelle Obama, it seems that America is becoming more food-obsessed by the hour. This obsession has given rise to an explosion of food programs on TV and to numerous documentaries about food issues and, of course, restaurants. At the same time, in many places, it seems like fast food has taken over completely. Spinning Plates explores three different kinds of restaurants: there’s the high-priced highart urban critics’ choice, there’s the small-town comfort food landmark, and there’s the immigrant striver’s dream of building a life out of a talent for tacos. What they have in common is that they make their food—these are not franchise operations that reheat food shipped in from New Jersey—and thus they represent a challenge to the homogenization and low standards of chain restaurants. In many parts of the country, such restaurants are an endangered species.

The History of the Jack-o’-Lantern By jeanelle myers

This last Saturday my husband and I went to the South Fork Natural History Museum, a great local resource. We looked at the installations inside, housing examples of some of our local flora and fauna, including an interactive salt water tank where one can get “up-close and personal” with animals that inhabit the shallows of our bays AND a special place where one can smell a fox! Then we went into the very large field in the back that abuts the Long Pond Greenbelt Preserve…another great resource. It was a perfect autumn day. The field was full of birds (the objects of my husband’s viewing) and a beautiful display of plants and grasses in autumn dress. With the exception of roadsides, or unless we make a point of going to an undeveloped site, we rarely see very large areas of wild plants. Though some of them have cousins in the garden, in their unhybridized form, they are delicate members in a colorful but subtle mass. I encourage you to avail yourselves of this wonderful and special place. Colorful trees, the cooler air and that autumn smell reminds me that Halloween is coming…my

favorite holiday. People have celebrated this time of year for millennia. Various customs from these celebrations have yielded our Halloween practices today. It’s commonly held that Halloween is from the Celtic tradition of Samhain (produced Sow en), a holiday signifying the end of summer, the beginning of the dark time and the end of the harvest. During this time, souls of last year’s dead can move easily between their world and this. Bonfires were kept blazing through the night and ghoulish costumes were worn to scare away a spirit trying to inhabit a live body. During the Middle Ages when the Catholic church was moving into Ireland, to encourage conversion of the locals, the holiday of all Hallows Eve was set the day after Samhain, hence the name “Halloween.” One of my favorite things about Halloween is jacko’-lanterns. My husband and I carve one each every year, sometimes with guest carvers. There are so many beautiful pumpkins available that we spend a long time choosing the right one, often going from farm stand to farm stand. A Swiss friend told me that turnips are carved for jack-o’-lanterns in Switzerland. Curious, I thought. Did they not know the proper way to do it? After some more research, I discovered the story of jack-o’-lantern. Jack was a very mischievous man who played tricks on many people. He even played a trick on the devil when he trapped him in a tree and carved a cross into the trunk, preventing the devil from descending. A bargain was struck allowing

the devil to come down for the promise of no more temptations of jack. When Jack died, he was not let into heaven because of his bad behavior and the devil did not want him either but did give a lighted coal to help him on his way. Jack carved a turnip and used it with the coal inside as a lantern lighting his never-ending journey. Hence “Jack of the lantern.” This custom arrived with the Irish immigrants during the 19th century. There were more pumpkins than turnips so they were used for Jack’s lantern. My husband uses Sawzall and a drill to carve his pumpkin and they, unlike mine, have non-traditional faces. He likes what I think of as unusually shaped pumpkins…especially tall skinny ones. I, on the other hand like a classic shape and a traditional face. We carve them about one week before Halloween and light them on the front porch each night. I love the smell of singed pumpkin! If I’m feeling industrious, I clean the seeds...the worst part of the process…and toast them. Yum! This is the best time of year to me. Apples, pumpkins, squash, some remaining summer vegetables, dahlias (one of my favorite flowers), blooming fall grasses, electric aconitum and more, are present in abundance. Leaves are falling and swirling as the cars run by them. Enjoy this time… winter is coming! Jeanelle Myers is a professional gardener, landscaper and consultant.

Hauntings at Villa Paul Restaurant?


recently tagged along with Shadows of the Paranormal, a local ghost hunting group, on an investigation at Villa Paul Restaurant in Hampton Bays. The Villa Paul property has plenty of fascinating history. In 1804, a log cabin was built on the site, which was home to farmer Joseph Brown and his wife Phoebe. They had four children. While learning about how the property was built on top of a former burial ground and how the bodies were purportedly never moved, I have to admit, a chill went up my spine. Arriving at the Villa Paul on a rainy Thursday night, everything seemed in place for a spooky evening of ghost hunting. Upon arrival, I met the team from Shadows of the Paranormal: Chris, Brian, Phil and Carolyn. They explained the technical process of setting up their cameras, their audio equipment, their base of operations and talked about the property more clinically than I imagined. They didn’t seem like a bunch of young amateurs—this crew was very serious. The restaurant’s upper floors contain two large apartments are home to the owners, as well as their daughter and her boyfriend Ricky. There were reports of activity primarily in the daughter’s part of the house. Splitting into two teams, I took part in an EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) session with Carolyn, Phil and Ricky. Carolyn did a sweep of the apartment’s living room with an EMF detector, which

Red & White Clam Chowda, Served Hot By silvia lehrer

On a sunny October day the Montauk Green was wall-towall people lining up for a taste of the 32nd annual clam chowder contest. Judges were given a choice of Manhattan (red) or New England (white). Most of us preferred to taste white but somehow I sided with the red contingent. I also met Laura Luciano, who has an impressive blog, Sally Krusch, former market researcher and volunteer, along with Laraine Creegan, Chamber of Commerce director and Pat Shea, Chamber event coordinator arranged the event. Judges were given personalized sheets with coordinating chowder numbers and four points to judge by appearance, body, balance and taste. All nine judges were local foodies as well. To alternate tastings, bottled water was available, along with ale and white wine, supplied by Montauk residents. First prize winners were Solé East, white, and John Pancake House’s red. Laura and I both picked the winning red. Only two whites were offered to us, and we liked one of them very much, Gosman’s, which won second place. They’re gone for the season and so is their recipe. Solé East, whose recipe wins year after year, is a restaurant secret, but owner David Ceva, who prepares the chowder himself, shared his use of several varieties of clams, a basic roux and their own clam stock. And Joel Velentin, chef of Tre Bella, shared his third place white recipe. These recipes are my adaptations

1 dozen chowder clams, scrubbed well Reserved clam juice 1 1/2 pounds chefs potatoes, peeled and diced 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 medium Spanish onion, finely chopped 2 whole carrots, peeled, sliced and diced 4 stalks celery, rinsed, trimmed and diced 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 pound, 12 ounce can plum tomatoes, crushed 4 ounce can tomato purée Salt and pepper to taste

1 dozen little neck clams, scrubbed well 4 slices bacon, cut into pieces 3 stalks celery. rinsed, trimmed and cut into 1/2inch dice 1 Spanish onion, finely chopped 1 large garlic clove, finely chopped 1/2 cup all purpose flour 1 quart reserved clam broth 1 quart heavy cream 4 medium chefs or Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch dice 1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves, chopped 1/2 teaspoon celery salt Salt and pepper to taste

1. Place the clams in the freezer for 15 minutes to make them easier to shuck, or have fishmonger shuck clams, saving the juice. Strain juice through a cheesecloth and set aside with shucked clams. 2. Parboil potatoes in a saucepan for 4 to 5 minutes, strain and reserve. 3. Heat oil in a large saucepan and add the onion. Stir and sauté onion about 2 to 3 minutes until translucent, then add the carrots, celery and garlic and sauté, stirring for 3 to 4 minutes longer. Crush the canned tomatoes by hand and add, with juice and the tomato purée, to the vegetables. Bring to a boil over medium high heat and add the blanched potatoes. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 16 to 18 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Turn off heat and add the clams and reserved juice. Let stand covered for 5 minutes to cook the clams off heat. Clams should be tender and briny. Serve hot.

1. Place clams in a 4 to 5 quart saucepan with 1 1/2 quarts fresh water, cover and bring to the edge of boil. Reduce heat, simmer clams until they open. With a slotted spoon transfer the clams to a large colander over a bowl to reserve the clam broth. Return broth to the saucepan and cook over medium-high heat and reduce to about 4–4 1/2 cups, strain and reserve. Scoop meat from the clamshells, discarding shells. Chop the clams coarsely and reserve. 2. Rinse and dry the pot the clams cooked in and brown the bacon in the pan until crispy. Drain the oil and add the celery, onion and garlic. Stir to mix and cook until ingredients are lightly browned. Add flour and stir over low heat for two minutes to make a roux, then stir in the clam juice and heavy cream. Add the potatoes and seasonings and simmer over medium low heat for about 50 minutes to an hour, stirring frequently, until potatoes are tender. Serve hot.

The Hampton Business District at Gabreski


ecently, I had the opportunity to sit down with Mitchell Rechler, Managing Partner, and Ellen Cea, Director of Business Development, of Rechler Equity Partners. They’re very excited about what’s happening at the Hampton Business District at Gabreski Airport in Westhampton Beach. The Hampton Business District (HBD) is nearing construction phase with 440,000 square feet and nine buildings, including a hotel and daycare center. What kind of tenants are you in discussions with? Mitchell Rechler: What excites us is the interest expressed from various sectors, including healthcare, manufacturing and recreation. Times are changing and we will be designing a project to meet the changing needs of a progressive innovative economy. Available space will start at 1,333 square feet. What sector has generated the most interest? Ellen Cea: We are currently in negotiations across the board with manufacturing companies, R&D, warehousing, office space and medical. There’s a growing focus on healthcare, along with trying to meet the needs of an aging population, so we have received a great deal of interest for medical space. Rechler: With the expected expansion of the U.S. healthcare industry over the next several years and the way medical services will be delivered, I think there will be an incredibly strong need for modern doctors’ offices, diagnostic centers, medical group space, medical billing, urgent care,

diagnostic testing, ambulatory surgery outpatient facilities, treatment and same-day pharmaceutical distribution and R&D surgical procedures. space nationwide. How has Rechler Cea: We’ve seen estimates of millions Equity Partners adjusted of new jobs being created over the next to the changing needs of five to 10 years to fulfill the growing healthcare tenants? needs of the healthcare industry to Rechler: Hospitals are handle the needs of a vast number of acquiring medical practices people added to the ranks of the insured in order to expand, and who previously relied on hospital The Medical Complex doctors are realizing the emergency rooms for treatment. advantages of working within How are the needs of healthcare a hospital network. Both are looking for new facilities institutions and practitioners changing? Rechler: We are hearing more often that hospital due to population growth and redistribution, urban groups are acquiring physicians’ private practices. sprawl, an aging patient base and the need to These integrated health systems promote physician incorporate the latest in diagnostic and ambulatory collaboration and help reduce duplication of surgery equipment in locations in closer proximity to diagnostic tests. Doctors are provided with more their customer base. What else is Rechler Equity Partners working on? resources such as electronic medical records Rechler: Rechler Equity Partners has grown along (EMR), while less time is being spent on billing and insurance issues. This means that doctors are freed with Long Island for the past 55 years, with a current up to spend more time practicing medicine, while portfolio of over 7 million square feet, encompassing over 100 properties. The company currently has also maintaining a better quality of life. How have the needs of healthcare tenants more than 3.5 million square feet in the development pipeline, which includes the Hampton Business changed? Cea: According to Woods & Poole 2013 State Profile District at Gabreski Airport, one of the largest single of NY & NJ, Nielsen 2013, those aged 65 and over made industrial commercial developments on Long Island. up just 9% of Suffolk’s population in 1980. Today As the Long Island economy continues to evolve, that number has grown to 31.5%. Older hospital so too has our company, and we look forward to sites are no longer convenient or efficient for Long another 55 years of meeting the needs of Long Island Island patients who prefer a centralized location residents and businesses.
