Yay, Pumpkintown The Kids Love it, the Parents Love it, and That’s All There is to it By Dan Rattiner Everybody loves Pumpkintown. It shows up on a 40-acre piece of farmland in Water Mill every September and is here for six weeks. All the kids and parents love it because of its slides to go on, hay bales to jump on, castles to climb on, school buses and backhoes to drive in, corn mazes to get through, pumpkins to pick up, pirate ships to walk on, pony rides to take, jams, jellies, corn and pumpkins to buy, and even Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to meet. Pumpkintown sticks around until the first week in November, then it shuts up shop and goes away. Of course, Pumpkintown could be in violation of a few local laws. Authorities are investigating. The castle may be in violation of town height limits and pyramid laws. Plans for it were apparently never submitted to the Architectural Review Board. Women’s rights may also be violated if, for example, a princess is held in the castle against her will. There is also the matter of the plumbing. There is no running water in the castle. Near the castle is a wooden dump truck that has never been properly registered or inspected. Where the motor is supposed to be there is none, so there may be a criminal
matter involving a stolen motor, or maybe the investigation will lead to some sort of chop shop. People sit in the truck but it doesn’t go anywhere, which may be in violation of traffic obstruction laws, especially as they pertain to emergency vehicles. There are no blinkers, windshield wipers, brakes or even a horn. The truck lacks any parking stickers. It could be parked illegally. We just don’t know. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs are on
the running around on the property is legal, and whether insurance papers have been filed properly. And who takes the garbage out? The pirate ship, a sea-faring vessel, has somehow been brought to the site and set on dry land. The Coast Guard says there is no registration sticker on the boat. Also, there is no parking permit or any other permit that would allow any vessel, particularly a pirate ship, to be on land. There also seem to be no life jackets, life rings or flares on the boat. The hay bales are suspect. Have they been sprayed with non-toxic-yet-toxic chemicals to rid themselves of ladybugs and spiders and things? Apparently not. And where are Pumpkintown’s schools? There’s this school bus. But it never goes anywhere. As far as the Town of Southampton is concerned, Pumpkintown is in violation of all sorts of local laws. It has no sidewalks or public roads, which are required of all public complexes in town. Pumpkintown lacks a police department. It has no legal documents that show that it is incorporated. And it has no documents that show that it is not incorporated. It is in great
Pumpkintown could be in violation of a few local laws. Authorities are investigating. the property, but they’re two-dimensional on poster board attached to sticks. Has Snow White been run over? Have the Dwarfs? Is there a steamroller hidden somewhere? There does not appear to be any permit for harboring dwarfs at Pumpkintown. Police say that cheers and screams of joy by children seem to be in violation of noise ordinances. It is questionable whether all

Photographer Peter Beard is reportedly putting his Montauk estate on the market. The Wall Street Journal estimates the value of the property—consisting of five cottages on six acres—at $25 million. * * * In other Montauk real estate news, the buyer of Bernie Madoff’s Hamptons vacation home has been revealed. Steven Roth, the billionaire chairman of Vornado, paid $9.41 million for the oceanfront spread. * * * Lance Gumbs, former chairman of the Shinnecock Tribal Trustees, was elected Northeast region vice-president of the National Congress of American Indians at the national organization’s annual trade show and conference earlier this month in California. He was sworn in last Friday. * * * “Housewives of NYC” cast members wore costumes with their pets at Animal Fair’s 9th Annual Pet Costume Party to benefit the Humane Society of NY at M2 Lounge on Oct. 26. Hamptons resident Jill Zarin continues the festivities on Oct. 31 at the Halloween Masquerade Ball at Bryant Park Grill. * * * Renowned sports radio and television broadcaster Ann Liguori will have a kick-off event to introduce the Southampton Intermediate School to the Healthy Children Healthy Futures program on Friday, Oct. 30. The nutrition educational program, funded by the Ann Liguori Foundation, teaches East End kids about good nutrition and fitness. * * * Hamptons artist April Gornik was honored at the Auction of Famed Artists Works at the Condé Nast Building in Manhattan. In addition to Gornick, participating artists included Ross Bleckner, Milton Glaser, Garry Trudeau, Walter Channing and many more. Proceeds benefited the South Bronx-based Health People, which works with women and children affected by AIDS. The event was organized by Sag Harbor’s Chris Norwood. * * * The Independent Group Home Living held its First Annual Fashion Show at The Westhampton Country Club which featured the latest looks from Renee’s Women’s Wear in Mattituck. Debbie Gildersleeve, Renee’s owner, supplied the fashions and narrated. * * * Gurney’s Spa Director Candice Monte announced that the spa’s first “Girl’s Night Out” breast cancer event drew more than 200 pink-clad women who danced, ate pink chocolate-covered strawberries and won prizes donated by local merchants. The event raised $4,000 for Southampton Hospital and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

violation of town assembly laws. Every day more than 500 people come to Pumpkintown, yet it has never applied for a permit for public assembly. It is highly unlikely that one would have been granted for this number of people. It also has no sewer system or drainage system. Pumpkintown seems to lack even the most rudimentary of governments. There is no chief of police, no mayor and no village board. If meetings are held, there is no record of them. The town is in complete violation of the Sunshine Laws and the First Amendment Laws, which require freedom of information and minutes to be taken at every public meeting. One of the more serious lapses at Pumpkintown is in their complete disregard of federal child labor laws. Children as young as three years old are out there in the fields, picking the pumpkins and carrying them to the designated areas. One can actually see them doing this from the road. As for the grown-up workers, federal authorities have yet to see any withholding tax being taken out of their pay. There are no quarterly filings or other accounting measures at Pumpkintown. There are no ramps for the handicapped at Pumpkintown, no handrails or bathrooms or even changing facilities for babies. Board of Health members are scratching their heads and wondering how such a town could have sprung up without the proper facilities and approvals.
As seen from the road, Pumpkintown is in serious violation of Southampton’s appropriate attire ordinances. People dress however they want. Women at Pumpkintown have been seen wearing skimpy skirts, and hairy men have been seen wearing undershirts. God knows when they may have last bathed. At night, Pumpkintown seems to be very badly lit. Instead of streetlights, Pumpkintown relies on car headlights—a very chancy business. Zoning is non-existent at Pumpkintown, and it seems that no civil planning was done. There’s no policeman, fireman or other emergency official at Pumpkintown. There’s no Pumpkintown Transportation Authority or marine museum. There are no trustees, courts or dog ordinance control officers. But there are apparently witches at Pumpkintown. What is that all about? There is also some question about whether Pumpkintown meets the code for its farm stand. The stand and little shack—which does not have a certificate of occupancy, we are told—are allowed to exist only insofar that more than 70% of the merchandise sold at the stand is actually grown on the property. Ordinance inspectors walking the property say that many of the pumpkins, which are seen lying about in the field rather than attached to any pumpkin plant stalk or anything, bear markings that suggest they are grown in southern New Jersey and trucked in. If this is true, Pumpkintown should have
import-export licenses, but a search of the records showed none. Then there is the traffic. Pumpkintown is so popular that traffic on Route 27, which passes right by Pumpkintown, slows to a crawl there because no thought has been given to traffic lights or passing lanes or other traffic patterns. Perhaps the biggest issue is the fact that Pumpkintown just seems to appear out of nowhere in September and disappear in November. What kind of town is that? Is there something that Pumpkintown is hiding? Do they leave with the same number of people they arrive with? A whole heap of violations will be served upon the mayor of Pumpkintown if he can be found, but so far, he hasn’t been. Also, it is proving difficult to find anyone who will give Pumpkintown a ticket. That’s because everybody loves Pumpkintown. It shows up on a 40-acre piece of farmland in Water Mill every September and is here for six weeks. All the kids and parents love it because of its slides to go on, hay bales to jump on, castles to climb on, school buses and backhoes to drive in, corn mazes to get through, pumpkins to pick up, pirate ships to walk on, pony rides to take, jams, jellies, corn and pumpkins to buy, and even Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to meet. Who could possibly want to serve a summons to Pumpkintown? Or Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs? Nobody, that’s who.

The Same Old Story Romantic Comedy Movie Script, Invented on the Spot by Two Birds By Dan Rattiner “Look at that,” my wife said. We were sitting in the park, eating sandwiches at lunchtime. Pigeons were strutting and fluttering about, mostly looking for bits of bread or crumbs in the grass. One pigeon, however, was interested in something else. He was clearly focusing his attention on one particular pigeon near him, who was slightly smaller. And he was letting her—I guessed it was female— know it. He bobbed his head. He fluffed up his feathers on his neck and began making these odd guttural noises. He also responded to her in a certain way. She’d turn her head to look one
way. He’d strut over in that direction. She’d turn her head the other way. He’d strut that way. Shortly thereafter, he added another aspect to his behavior: menace. It was quite subtle. When she’d walk a bit, looking down into the grass for stuff, he’d strut toward her. She’d look up. He’d stop immediately, then hunker down as if he was nesting. But he continued the feather fluffing and guttural sounds. Then she’d look away, and he’d get up. “It doesn’t seem to be a secret what he wants,” my wife said. Now he was integrating these behaviors.
She’d look one way and he’d strut that way. She’d look down and he’d head toward her. She’d walk away slowly and he’d make a big circle around her to get back into her sightline. She’d stop, then go somewhere else. He’d circle her again. This went on for quite some time and amidst many other busy pigeons. It was clear to everybody, including us bystanders, the other pigeons and the lady herself, that he was doing this for her. Soon the dynamic changed once again. She began to exhibit very dignified yet very aloof behavior. She completely ignored him. At the (continued on next page)
TYPOS, SLIP-UPS & OMISSIONS, HAMPTONS STYLE By Dan Rattiner One might expect mistakes to be made in a small town every once in a while. But just last week, so many of them popped up, it was hard to believe such bungling was possible. In Sagaponack Village, there was the matter of the error in the newly passed zoning code. Apparently, in typing it up, the typist fouled up. Those businesses which were non-conforming and pre-existing not only didn’t have to be brought up to code, but they were—here’s the error—allowed to expand in the future up to twice their current size. The error became known when the Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) bought a property on
Montauk Highway in that village, where they intend to build a much larger store than is there now in order to accommodate the needs of their thrift shop, which they will move from Sagaponack once the new facility is complete. “This is much too big,” the village told ARF when first shown the plan of the big new store to be built in Sagaponack. Then they found it was not too big. It was legal. “That is why we bought it,” a representative of ARF said. “We need lots of space for the home furnishings—beds and chests and sofas and things.” “It’s a mistake.” “If we had known that, we wouldn’t have
bought it.” The property has a 1,700-square-foot house on it. They will expand it to 3,100 square feet, though they could take it to 3,400 square feet if they read the code correctly, which they did. The code is being corrected. But, woof, ARF wins this one. In East Hampton Village, village trustees have discovered that a law preventing residents from bulldozing the ancient Double Dunes, a line of oceanfront sand dunes extending six miles between Georgica and Amagansett, does not exist. They thought it (continued on page 18)

same time, she held herself tall. There was a self-awareness in this. It had not been there before. She continued to do what she did before, but with grace and style. If he wanted to look, well, so be it. He could have a look. But he couldn’t touch. And then something very unexpected happened. It was like right out of a movie. He just gave up. He stopped paying attention to her altogether. He found a crumb on the pavement. He went over and ate it. He looked for another crumb, found one and ate that. He walked completely away. If she wasn’t interested, what could he do? He couldn’t go on with this forever. I know that pigeons do not have the ability to change their facial expressions, but I swear, in every other way imaginable, this girl
expressed alarm. Where did he go? Has he changed his mind? Was it something I did? Or didn’t do? She quickly walked over to him. He walked away. She came up alongside him and looked at him. Nothing. He didn’t even know she was there. In fact, he walked away again. It was over. But it wasn’t, of course. She followed him. She tried the standing-up-tall business. He didn’t respond. She tried walking gracefully. She did her right-in-front-of-him thing again. No dice. I’d say, at this point, we had been watching this little drama for about five or six minutes. They were apparently in no hurry. They did have, after all, all day. Finally, she couldn’t take it anymore. He was

just standing there, looking at something, and she walked up from behind him until their bodies were side by side. His a little bigger, hers a little smaller. She leaned into him. THAT, he understood. He let her do that for a while. Soon, however, this matter proceeded to the next phase. I don’t recall who started it, but at first it appeared to be alarming, or potentially alarming. First, one of them would peck the other in the head and around the eyes. Then the other would return the favor. Each would close their eyes when the pecking got near there. For the top of the head, they’d lean down a bit. A bond of trust seemed to form from this. Soon the pecking began to also include around the neck. The pecks would go down to the neck then back up to the eyes and the top of the head. It sure looked good to me. “I think they are cleaning each other,” my wife said. “You think?” “No idea.” This went on for another three or four minutes. Given the quick, darting movements that pigeons make, this was real serious foreplay going on, although it never did get below the neck. I admired it. Finally, it was on to the next phase. You could not make this stuff up. They turned to face each other, opened their hooked beaks, turned their heads 45 degrees, stepped in close and locked their beaks together. They wiggled around like this with their beaks locked, then they unlocked them and repeated. Soon it progressed further. One would stick his or her closed beak down into the mouth of the other and give it a little shake. This was so strange. But then with beaks instead of lips, maybe it wasn’t. But what was it? Were they feeding each other little mites they had found under their feathers? Were they French kissing? Were they expanding on the trust they had established earlier while pecking one another? Were they doing all three? Finally, it happened. They disengaged. He walked around her, made a guttural noise and jumped her. He got right up on her back for just a second, maybe two. And then he got off. While he was up there, though, he did something under her wing feathers. Something happened, but it was too fast to see. He was like a magician. Then he hopped off. “That was it?” I said. “Yup.” “Sort of a disappointment, no? After all that?” What happened next? He fell asleep, tucking his head under his wing? She fretted? Stomped off? Not at all. They continued on with some of the earlier behavior. They leaned against one another. They turned and gently pecked each other in the head again. Then, well, I don’t exactly know what happened after that. My sandwich wrapper fell to the ground, a big flock of pigeons came in and landed all over everything and I lost track of them. In conclusion, I would like to offer this small news item I just read in the New York Post. “PEPSI SCRAPS PICKUP APP PepsiCo has removed its iPhone application (continued on page 18)

McGintee & Ferry Two Peas in a Pod, with the Money Slipping Away, 15 Years Apart By Dan Rattiner Bill McGintee resigned from his job as East Hampton Supervisor on October 5 not because political opponents hounded him out of office, or because a big hatchet job was done on him, but because he was scared that a District Attorney investigating things might put him in jail for a long, long time. In my opinion, McGintee should have resigned a long time ago, when the mess he made of things was pointed out. He did not. So things got worse. And if not for the efforts of District Attorney Tom Spota, who could not believe a person could mess things up so badly without pocketing some of the money himself, McGintee would be our supervisor today. The fact is, McGintee never used any of our tax funds for himself or his family—there were no fancy cars nor expensive vacations. We now have very thorough and expensive proof of that,
thanks to a team of assistant DAs who went through all the files and checkbooks. This has turned out to be an embarrassment for our politically ambitious DA. He needed to find something to be able to put the handcuffs on McGintee. Incredibly, though McGintee might have been incompetent, he was honest. I think that McGintee himself very likely did not know if he had stolen anything. His level of incompetence—and I do not mean anything personal by this—was so great he had no idea where the money was coming from and going to. Maybe he DID take some of it. He would not have done it intentionally. But what if he DID? Somebody with all his ducks in a row would be confident that he’d be cleared of all wrongdoing. My guess is that McGintee simply did not know how this would turn out. He resigned. He will not be indicted. That is the deal. But didn’t McGintee do SOMETHING wrong?
He sure did. He spent this town into the dumps. Too bad for us. In many ways, McGintee’s story is very similar to that of a man named Dr. John Ferry, Jr. that occurred 15 years ago in Southampton. At that time, Ferry, who had a doctorate in hospital administration, became the president of Southampton Hospital. A dashing, handsome man filled with ideas, he was at first seen as a savior of the hospital, which, at that time, was just sort of bumping along and barely breaking even. Ferry began implementing his ideas. He brought in a concierge. He brought in valet parking. He ordered a stem-to-stern remodeling of the hospital’s interior by a noted designer. There were paintings on the walls, new track lighting and a grand entrance. Ferry said he was going to make a “boutique” hospital for the (continued on page 24)
COME FOR A DRINK AND I’LL SHOW YOU AROUND By Dan Rattiner Bernie Madoff’s Montauk house, initially valued at $3 million when his scheme unraveled and an inventory was taken of his holdings last November, was sold three weeks ago at auction for $9.4 million to developer Steven Roth. Roth, 67, is the billionaire chairman of Vornado Realty Trust, the company that developed and built some of New York City’s tallest skyscrapers. This was pocket change for Roth, and the truth is Madoff’s Montauk house is modest by any oceanfront standards. It’s 2,800 square feet, and has only four bedrooms and a tiny swimming pool. Madoff’s black 2001 E320 Mercedes, on the
other hand, valued at $20,000 by appraisers last November, went for a mere $14,250 on Friday. The buyer is a New Jersey neurosurgeon named Gregory Przybylski. Another car sold at that auction—they sell lots of cars at every auction—was a 2007 Coachman Freelander RV owned by a lower profile Wall Street swindler, hedge-fund whiz Sam Israel. Appraised at $27,000, it went for $27,500. Israel, after his scheme was discovered, faked his own death, then lived in his car for 22 days before turning himself in. It is interesting to speculate why the Madoff items sold with prices so wildly differently from
their appraisals, while other items did not. Obviously, a person’s high profile makes a huge difference. But why the difference upward for the property and downward for the car? The car was almost a steal. In perfect condition, it’s a oneowner, nine-year-old popular luxury car, with only 43,000 miles on it. As for the house, real estate prices tanked. And who knows what you get when you buy a house? Well, there is only one vacation house in the Hamptons that is (or was) Madoff’s house. You can sit in it, you can invite friends over to it. Its design came from the mind of an unbelievable (continued on page 26)

did. It doesn’t. The Double Dunes are a unique series of dunes that extend back from the ocean as much as a quarter of a mile. They are unlike any in the world. About three miles of them are in the Village of East Hampton, and about three miles of them are adjacent in the Town of East Hampton. They are protected by rangers from the State Department of Environmental Conservation, and are supposedly supported by village and town laws. The town has such laws. The village does not. “Our laws only protect dunes a certain number of feet from a house,” a village official said ruefully after poring through the ordinances. The fact that the village does not have an ordinance was brought into the spotlight a year ago when a rich homeowner named Ron Baron built a concrete wall parallel to the beach for 800 feet through the Double Dunes on his property. No one had ever done that before. It was a flagrant violation. The town went after him, and he ultimately had to jackhammer the part of it in the town out. It was quite clear at the time that what he did in the village was legal because there was no such law. The wall is still up there, and the village ignored the problem. In recent weeks, however, the village has been scrambling to prevent other village residents from bulldozing the dunes, which, suddenly, they have begun to do. The village rewrote the code to add the restriction and hopes to send it to the state for its stamped approval by this past Monday.
In the meantime, though, two oceanfront homeowners in the village have had bulldozers out, trying to flatten the dunes so as to improve their ocean views. One is Brian Brille, president of the AsiaPacific operations of Bank of America, who has started operations to flatten the dune, put in a retaining wall, relocate a wooden walkway and re-grade and landscape the project with native plantings. He proposed this six months ago. The village building department, seeing no reason not to, approved it. Last week, the village said that he could bulldoze until Monday and get whatever he wanted done by that time. But that was it. Brille is on the Board of Trustees of The Nature Conservancy, which supports the protection of the Double Dunes. Also underway is a Double Dune destruction project by Christopher Brown, a resident of Further Lane in East Hampton Village. This past week, Brown’s bulldozers were working furiously to re-grade the dunes on his property. Brown is also on the Board of Trustees of The Nature Conservancy. Finally, there were the laws passed recently by the State of New York requiring all surfcasters to buy $10 state fishing licenses. Their reasons are that they want to keep track of how many fishermen are out there (they are desperate for money), and they want to better see what kind and how many fish are being caught (they are desperate for money). No one bothered to look into the laws on eastern Long
Island where in three towns, Southampton, Southold and East Hampton, there are ancient trustee laws that prevent the state or anybody else from charging local residents to fish in the ocean, ponds or bays. These laws have been upheld in the courts over and over again. The state law went into effect on October 1. All around the state, people are buying licenses online and in sporting goods stores. On October 2, the three East End towns filed a lawsuit, and so far as anybody knows, even though the law was passed, not one state police officer has asked a surfcaster to show him a license in those towns. The matter will probably be in court for years since it is highly unlikely the state will go into its ordinance books with an eraser. We know the outcome.

that promised to help men ‘score’ with different types of women, about a week after it was criticized for stereotyping. The soft-drink and snack maker announced its decision yesterday. The application, called ‘Amp up before you score’—used to promote its Amp energy drink—was unavailable for download on iTunes and removed from the brand’s site. The application gave users pickup lines to woo two-dozen stereotypes of women and a scoreboard to tally their conquests. PepsiCo apologized on its Amp Twitter page, saying the application tried to show the ‘humorous lengths guys go 2 pick up women.’”

By T.J. Clemente Southampton Supervisor Linda Kabot and her opponent for the position, Councilwoman Anna Throne-Holst, faced off on Oct. 22 at a debate sponsored by the League of Woman Voters of the Hampton at the Rogers Memorial Library. Moderated by the League’s Barbara Jordan and drawing more than 225 attendees, the debate showcased two women who’ve been at the center of Southampton town government the last two years. Although Kabot and Throne-Holst were both dressed in white blouses and dark business suits, it was clear from the opening statements that the similarities ended there. Kabot, the Republican incumbent, insisted that her challenger basically ran against her for the last year from the inner workings of the board meetings. She chided Throne-Holst for being aligned with the Southampton Police Union and against a town health care reform plan that would raise costs for town officials. (Kabot does not take part in the town’s program; Throne-Holst’s entire family does.) Kabot stressed her own strong leadership in the myriad budget nightmares thrown at her by an administration she defeated two years ago. She asked to be re-elected to “continue the work” of righting the wrongs of a culture that controlled her party and town for too long, stressing she had the experience to right the town through these troubled times. Throne-Holst, the Democratic party challenger, basically said in her opening statement that change was imperative in this election in

order to instate competent leadership “that has experience in economic matters.” She explained that from day one of her time on the Southampton Town Board, she was “shocked at the lack of accountability and financial planning” at Town Hall. To combat this, she held up her “action” plan—a sort of business plan for the town that will turn around its byzantine financial practices and put new systems in place to end the government’s apparent incompetencies of the last few years. With questions coming from the audience and a panel of well-known journalists, the candidates answered very respectfully. In fact, the most interesting dynamic of the debate might have been the civility between these two rivals. There were no rude interruptions, insult-hurling or desperate charges. The candidates showed they were used to presenting their opinions at town board meetings. They
spoke with emotion and passion. Both are poised political leaders. However, their differences are pronounced. Throne-Holst doesn’t believe that Kabot has the career experience to deal with the complicated accountability issues the town must identify, clean up and change. Kabot, of course, believes she is the one with the experience to deal with these difficult times, which include a challenging situation with the town’s police union over a new contract. She just about proclaimed Throne-Holst’s support of the police union as dangerous. In the end, the debate wasn’t about details, but the apparent difference in philosophy and styles of governing offered by the candidates. Throne-Holst will be an agent for total change though “restructuring and reorganizing the town,” along with its budget. Kabot offered the experienced hand that’s already righting those woes. After a 10-minute intermission, the four candidates for Southampton Town Board entered: Conservative and Republican Party candidate Jim Malone, Democratic Party Candidate Bridget Fleming, one-year incumbent Democrat Councilwoman Sally Pope, and incumbent Councilman Chris Nuzzi. Their messages can be summed up by their own words. Malone stressed he was the man who would and could “do more with less.” Fleming proclaimed, “Our government is not working,” and represented the “momentum for real change.” Pope stressed that, “Service has been (continued on next page)

The Makeover that Still Makes a Difference
By T.J. Clemente In today’s world of using green appliances and increasing the value of your home, many are revisiting the idea of upgrading the kitchen. Scott Smith of Smith River Kitchens in East Hampton is considered a legend by many because of his skills, knowledge and track record of custom kitchen design and cabinetry installa-

tion. Smith explained that based on his experience, an old kitchen can devalue sale price by $20-$30,000, whereas putting in a deluxe, smartly designed modern kitchen increases the value from $50,000 to $100,000. Well-designed and high-quality cabinetry with full custom installation starts at about $12,000. Completely redoing a kitchen starts at about $20,000. Yet for some homeowners, even after considering the return on investment, a kitchen renovation is a hard sell. Years ago, a friend said of her husband Phil,

After a two-year campaign spearheaded by Peconic Baykeeper and supported by the Towns of Hempstead, Oyster Bay, Babylon, Islip, Brookhaven, Southampton and the Fire Island National Seashore, the entire South Shore Estuary Reserve has been designated a federal No-Discharge Zone. This designation requires vessels to discharge all sewage, treated or not, at pump-out facilities, thereby preserving water quality and protecting surrounding marine life. To obtain approval, Peconic Baykeeper demonstrated the need for greater protection of the natural resources within the estuary. The South Shore Estuary Reserve includes more than 110,000 acres of open bays and tributaries from the East Rockaway Inlet to Shinnecock Bay. Said Baykeeper Kevin McAllister, “As Long Islanders, we’re deeply connected to our waters, and it is our responsibility to ensure their long-term vitality. ”
“He sends Harvard $300,000 every year but wouldn’t let me spend $20,000 on the kitchen. I did it anyway and in the end I was holding him back—he really got into it.” Of course, you could be a DIY-er, but a real estate agent told me that people who do kitchens themselves usually don’t save money and end up devaluing their homes. “These are million-dollar homes, not trailers,” he said. “Yet some homeowners try to take short cuts on the kitchen, which is perhaps the most important room in a home. What are they thinking?” Everything has a season, including kitchen upgrades. Design is typically done early in the year and most of the work is usually completed before June. August is another popular month for planning and design for homeowners who want the project completed for the holidays. Smith explained that installing cabinetry takes two to three weeks. Designing, building and completing a total redo will take from two to three months. To do the job, Smith River’s licensed architects provide 3-D renderings of a project that can be combined with historical period detailing. The company offers a full range of countertop, tile and finish materials, which they install. While in these times a redo may not be a priority, a new kitchen is valuable; it improves energy usage and ups the list price of a home for sale. Smith thinks the cost of renovation is a small price to pay, considering what it could save elsewhere. He chuckled and said a well-designed kitchen “makes a living room obsolete.”

(continued from page 21)
Centerâ€”an open mic jam for local poets and performances by R&B jazz band Touche and jazz viloinist Krystle Ford. The festival will then present a film marathon on November 7 from 1 to 10 p.m. at the Parrish. Featured films are shorts Beauty Lies and Breaking News. Full length films include Otto Premingerâ€™s 1954 tragic love tale Carmen Jones, and Tim Disneyâ€™s 2008 film American Violet, in whild an innocent woman from a Texas slum is wrongly charged and arrested for dealing drugs. Other films include The Adventures of Teddy P. Brains: Journey into the Rain Forest (2007), an animated childrenâ€™s film where a six-year-old travels through time and space; and The Wiz (1978), Sidney Lumetâ€™s urban retelling of The Wizard of Oz, in honor of Michael Jackson. Festival organizer Brenda Simons said, â€œThe festival isnâ€™t a black thing. Itâ€™s about community bonding.â€? But this weekend, the Parrish concludes its fall film series, â€œNew Global Cinema.â€? On Friday (Oct. 30), the museum presents The Return (2003), directed by Russian filmmaker Andrei Zvyagintsev. Set in contemporary Russia, the film tracks the troubled reuniting of two boys with their father, who had abandoned them. The film earned the Golden Lion award at the 2003 Venice Film Festival. Admission to films is $5 for Parrish members and $7 for non-members. Admission to the East End Black Film Festivalâ€™s Beyond the Breaks is free. A day pass for East End Black Film Festivalâ€™s November 7 marathon day is $5 for non-Parrish members; free for Parrish members.
Reuters / Thu., Oct. 22, 3:15 p.m. ET PALERMO, Sicily â€“ A Sicilian builder transferred from prison to house arrest tried to get himself locked up again to escape arguments with his wife at home... Santo Gambino, 30, went to the police station and asked to be put away again to avoid arguing with his wife... Police charged him with violating the conditions of his sentence and made him go home and patch things up with his wife. This would never happen on Shelter Island. Imagine a man preferring to be put in jail rather than be home with his wife. Joe: Roger, did you see this article? This guy gets himself put in jail rather than hear his wife yammer on and on about nothinâ€™. Roger: Yeah? Jeannieâ€™s already bitching about me waking her at 4 a.m. when I go deer hunting. Joe: Do you make a lot of noise? Roger: Never. I tiptoe around, and get my gear, and guns. Itâ€™s Terry. He wakes her up when he pulls up and the top lights on his truck cab shine into our bedroom. Then he comes in for coffee. Heâ€™s not noisy, but sometimes we have to wake her up to find the filters, yâ€™know... Joe: Well, she can go right back to sleep. Roger: She says the smell of the coffee wakes her up. I thought it was the bacon. Then she yips about not leaving egg dishes all over and starts rinsing dishes and complaining that itâ€™s now 5 a.m. and thereâ€™s no sense going back to sleep since she has to get up at seven with the kids. Man, I canâ€™t want to get out of that house. Joe: We all put up with it, man. You think

theyâ€™d be appreciative that weâ€™re bringing home free venison. Jennie always rags on about how the venison is actually about $116/lb. She does this weird calculation thing, adds up the cost of my gear, guns, bullets, boots, knives, gas, everything. Roger: You donâ€™t tell her the truth, do you? You always trim off 25% of the price of anything you tell your wife you bought. Joe: I know. Otherwise the venison comes out to $182/lb. Iâ€™d never hear the end of that! Roger: You know, we could get arrested together after deer season and share the cell. Joe: Thatâ€™s not so crazy. We could do something to get jailed for two months, get three hots and a cot, and no complaining. Roger: No lectures on not letting the baby play with the empty rifle. Joe: No complaints about washing clothes with deer blood on them. Roger: No one telling you not to throw your bowie knife at the shed door because someone might open it at that exact moment. Joe: Women worry about the most trivial stuff. Roger: I know. I always lock the shed door before I throw my knives. Joe: What about the time you nearly clipped Tom when he opened the door? Roger: That was two years ago. Besides, Tom is a big guy. The knife couldnâ€™t have gone in far enough to do much harm. Joe: So what can we get arrested for? Roger: Weâ€™re a coupla bright guysâ€”letâ€™s bring a six-pack and figure it out in the deer blind.

rich, similar to such hospitals that exist today in Palm Springs and Aspen. Great doctors with worldwide reputations would settle in Southampton. They would work in the â€œsatelliteâ€? hospitals he planned for East Hampton, Westhampton Beach and Hampton Bays. He bought the land for these satellites. He broke ground and began construction. He was the featured guest at great fundraisers. After five years of this, the hospitalâ€™s board of directors, a bunch of older men who would burst into applause whenever Ferry strode into a room, were told something was amiss. But what could it be? They did have, after all, a $60 million endowment in the bank. All of these wonderful and daring changes would be accomplished on their watch. Well, good heavens, when they checked the account at the bank, the entire $60 million endowment was gone. Ferry had spent it all, paying the contractors and designers and architects who were fulfilling his grand plans. Furthermore, the losses were accelerating. It turned out that among other things, the hospitalâ€™s ancient computers were malfunctioning. There was medical work being done at the hospital that was not being billed out. There was no clear idea what was paid and what was not. There was not even a collection department. What a mess. They called in Ferry. He was presented with what was going on. And he looked at everybody in horror. He had no idea, he said. He was not paying any attention to those sorts of details. He was an idea man. He would resign.
Then, as soon as possible, he did. And he left town. He did not flee the country. He was available to be arrested if it came to that. But when the accountants came in, they found that Ferry had never taken anything for himself. Heâ€™d really wanted what was best for the hospital. He was simply guilty of financial incompetence. And that was that. I think it is fair to say that if Ferry had not resigned when he did, a DA would have been brought in to investigate for possible criminal activity. What DA would not assume the good doctor was lining his own pockets? What was he hiding? Well, Ferry agreed to scrap the remainder of his contract. Also his golden parachute, though he did accept enough to cover the cost of relocating his family elsewhere. He was very apologetic. He is, I have to say, remembered fondly, though with a sense of outrage by all of us. Itâ€™s complicated. The bankers came in after he left. If they had not, the hospital would have closed its doors. So they came in, and the trustees had to accept draconian terms to borrow the money needed to continue on. The interest rates were through the roofâ€”this was a big risk the bankers were taking, the bankers saidâ€”and stayed the same for the full 15 years. These were dark times for the hospital as they made do with very little while the bankers who saved them got rich on the high interest. One would think that the bankers, who mightâ€™ve needed to use the hospital themselves from time to time, would have changed the

terms of the awful loan they made after a few years. But they turned their backs and let the hospital drift. It has only been in the last few years, as the light at the end of the 15-year tunnel has grown brighter and brighter, that the new hospital president, Bob Chaloner, has turned the hospital into a truly successful and wonderful place again. Recently, the hospital began operating in the black for the first time in years. The thing is that a little over two years ago, in June of 2007, when McGintee learned the horrible truth about the lack of funds in the town treasury, he did not resign so others could fix the problem. He was running for reelection of his third term in November. By his own admission, he simply kept silent about what he had learned so he could be reelected. And he was. Only after that did he make public what he knew, but then he STILL did not resign. What was he hiding? It seemed like a nobrainer for a crusading DA to come in and make the arrest and send McGintee off to jail for stealing the funds. What DA Spota found was that East Hamptonâ€™s budget officer, Ted Hults, who McGintee appointed, was also incompetent. Because he, too, was honest, the best the DA could do was find criminal activity when Hults told the state about the townâ€™s finances in hopes of Albany bailing out the town and bonding our children to big state loans for the next 15 years. Thatâ€™s all they could come up with. Spota hauled off Hults in handcuffs. Spota probably rubbed his hands together with glee and thought McGintee would be next. After all, McGintee had signed off on what Hults had done. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. The most ridiculous part of all of this, if you think about it, is that in his letter of resignation, McGintee thanks the DA for agreeing to allow him to help find out who really caused this mess. It reminds me of that old joke: The wife opens the bedroom door and there is her husband in bed with another woman. The husband sits up, shocked, and says, â€œWho put this woman in this bed? We have to find that person.â€? Exactly who does McGintee think might have caused this? Last week, independent of the DA, the New York State Comptrollerâ€™s Office finally issued their report on East Hampton finances. They (continued on page 26)

3rd Q. Reports: Prices Stable, Sales Inch Up By T.J. Clemente The East End real estate numbers for the third quarter are in. They show that the light at the end of the tunnel is not an approaching train, but recovery through activity. No longer are the sales figures falling like a one-pound sinker on the end of a fishing line; they are actually holding steady, if not building the market. Let’s look at the overall figures presented by Town & Country, Prudential Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. The number of homes sold in all the Hamptons for the third quarter of 2009 was 251, versus 257 in 2008—a modest drop of only 2.33%. Although the total sales volume was down from about $452 million (3Q 2008) to $441 million (3Q 2009) the drop is only 2.51%, and the good news is the median home sale price actually increased 4.65%, from$860,000 (3Q 2008) to $900,000 (3Q 2009). Overall activity price ranges show why signs of recovery are evident. In home sales under $500K, the volume of sales dropped 21.74% to 54 homes in 3Q 2009 from 69 homes in 3Q 2008. The decrease in low-end activity was offset by 18 sales over $5 million in the 3Q of 2009 versus none in the 3Q of 2008. There was also an eyebrow-raising 40% increase in the sale of homes priced between $3.5 million and $5 million (14 homes 3Q 2009 versus 10 homes 3Q 2008). The upward trend continues in the $2 to $3.49 million home sales range, with a comparative quarter increase of a whopping
45.45%, with 32 homes sold in 3Q 2009 versus 22 in 3Q 2008. And in the activity zone of $500K to $1.99 million, 133 homes were sold in 3Q of 2009 versus 138 homes in 3Q 2008. What jumps out is the statistic that sales of homes between $1 million and $1.99 million were down 22.22% (42 homes 3Q 2009 versus 54 homes 3Q 2008), whereas sales volume increased in the $500k to $999K level by 8.33%—with 91 in the 3Q of 2009, up from 84 in the 3Q of 2008. So what does this all mean? Judi Desiderio founder of Town and Country states, “In fact, we were the first to identify the Second Quarter 2009 as ‘the bottom’—and we were correct.” Dottie Herman, CEO of Prudential Douglas Elliman stated it differently in an Elliman Third Quarter report, saying, “Prices stabilized during the summer as sales surged with buyers taking advantage of improved affordability.” At Corcoran the sentiments were the same, as reflected by this statement in their report: “This increase in activity is attributable to a strengthening in the higher end market as median and average home prices have increased while the number of homes sold has decreased slightly. Inventory continued to grow in the third quarter indicating a broader range of opportunities for buyers.” Again, Desiderio’s report stressed the bottom of the bottom: “In all, the homes sales activities for the 3rd Q ’09 demonstrated a recovery in
levels as five of the 11 markets monitored by Town & Country showed increases in the number of Home Sales, while one remained equal and five declined—a much happier report than last quarter when all 11 markets had severe declines from the previous year.” On the North Fork, the numbers and sentiments were not as rosy. Corcoran’s report stated: “We continue to experience declines in average and median home prices, as the North Fork market adjusts to the current economic cycle.” Prudential Douglas Elliman’s North Fork assessment states: “In a release of pent-up demand, there were 459 sales in the third quarter, 49.5% more than the second quarter and 29.3% more than the same period last year. Despite the surge in sales this summer, third quarter listing inventory expanded 5.8% to 2,419 properties compared to the prior quarter as sellers attempted to take advantage of the newly active housing market.” What all the East End figures seem to say is that homes under $500K are not selling, as perhaps those buyers haven’t recovered from the economic downturn and are unable to get financing. The $500K to $1.99 million homes are being bought and sold with prices stabilizing. Homes above $2 million are beginning to move as wealthier buyers gain confidence that the downward spiral has stopped and that healthy values in the form of beautiful East End homes are available.

went through each checkbook in great detail. They could document exactly what happened with the finances of East Hampton Town. I recall that when the trouble began, McGintee, shocked to find they were $6 million in debt, claimed he had inherited the debt from his predecessor, who had left office in 2004 without telling McGintee about the secret deficit. Turns out that not only did the predecessor leave McGintee a surplus, but the surplus, about $8 million, was still there at the end of McGintee’s first term in 2006. McGintee never even knew he was rolling in dough when he was rolling dough. It was in the beginning of 2007 that things
Come for a Drink
began to go very south. According to a state comptroller, by the end of that year, the surplus was gone and replaced by an $11 million deficit. In June of 2007, McGintee discovered he’d scraped the bottom of the financial barrel. Money was gone. He could not make payroll. He had no idea why. At that time, he should have done what Ferry did. He should have resigned. He didn’t. McGintee not walking away sadly cost this town another $10 million in deficits. 2008 was business as usual. McGintee made no layoffs, cutbacks, tax increases or project abandonments. He simply wrote checks out of an account earmarked for public land purchase to get by. It was illegal. But he was the man in
charge and it was an emergency. So he did it. Personally, I am a taxpayer in two different hamlets in East Hampton Town. From my perspective, McGintee is a man who has screwed us up badly. He meant well, apparently. I think he’s a nice guy. He had ideas. He implemented many of them. But I really resent this second $10 million in deficit that taxpayers and our children will have to bear. There will be tax increases, layoffs, reduced services, bonds to pay. And for what? For a man who insisted that what he broke he would fix. That isn’t a crime, either. But it’s pretty awful. He never did fix it. As a matter of fact, as this is written, things are still headed south.
(continued from page 17)
crook. It’s a conversation piece. On the other hand, a car is a car. And as some woman told a reporter from the New York Post, “I wouldn’t want to put my butt where he put his butt.” And you can hardly invite anybody over for dinner in your car. (Well, unless you’re Mr. Israel.) Another thought is that maybe some of that $65 billion is buried somewhere at the house. It could hardly still be in the car. The Feds went over it with a fine-tooth comb. But with a house, sometimes things get buried for centuries despite everybody’s best efforts. You never know. Incidentally, I’ve been thinking further about Madoff and what he did. I’d like to share some of these thoughts. One is that Madoff seems to consider himself a victim of his own Ponzi scheme. He hasn’t said much. But what he did say, in open court, about his role in all this, has led me to that conclusion. He said he couldn’t help himself. All sorts of people patted him on the back when they gave him a million dollars and at the end of a year he gave them $150,000 back as profit rather than the usual $50,000 other money managers, even the
best of them, were coming up with. He became drunk on his clients’ compliments. Then more people complimented him. So he did it again and again, each time using the next person’s cash not to buy stock but to give these wonderful returns to those who came before. How did he do it? He’d smile and tell people it was as secret as the formula for Coca Cola. He’d drive around in his Mercedes. He’d drive out to the Hamptons. He was a millionaire many times over from doing this. But he lived relatively modestly, in New York anyway. A nine-year-old Mercedes. A small country house—oceanfront, yes, but modest nevertheless. So where did the $65 billion go? I originally figured it had to be somewhere. He took it in. A “master” was appointed by the court to try to track it down. Was it in Switzerland? Under the Montauk vacation house? $65 billion is the gross domestic product of Bulgaria. It would be hard to misplace. Well, I, and many others, have overlooked the obvious. Madoff did this for 10 years. Let’s say he had 10,000 accounts in all. Not an unlikely number. What he did was take in $65 billion
during 10 years from 10,000 families, and give ALL of it to the first 5,000 families. The next 5,000 lost everything. And that is that. Less his commissions, it was a mass re-shmerguling of the funds. Today, the first 5,000 folks are keeping their mouths shut. The last 5,000 folks are, well, we know about them. They’re ruined. And poor Bernie, the victim of his own desire to be liked, has willingly gone off and paid the price. He could not control himself. One can almost see him, tossing and turning in the middle of the night—even his wife apparently didn’t know what he was doing— and thinking about how he wasn’t going to be able to continue this, and how those 5,000 who were about to lose everything were going to feel about him. They thought he was their friend. He thought he was their friend. But then, the economy turned. Who knew this was going to happen? Who knew? He gets up and paces. “Bernie, are you all right?” “Yes. Everything’s fine.” “Come back to bed, Bernie.” Poor Bernie. At long last, now, finally, Bernie is free.

By Dan Rattiner Week of October 31–November 6, 2009 Riders this week: 6,414 Rider miles this week: 73,801 EMERGENCY WARNING CHANGED YET AGAIN A change in the subway system evacuation signal went into effect last Friday. Instead of one hoot of the horn for “evacuate” and two for “all clear,” it was reversed so that two hoots meant “evacuate” and one meant “all clear.” Unfortunately, a bat roosting on the tracks between Southampton and Water Mill elicited one hoot from Motorman Clyde Damswell on the day this went into effect. Everyone in the system evacuated—except the bat. With two hoots, the passengers all returned and the bat evacuated. As a result of this mix-up, this Friday, the rules will be changed back to the way they were before. Three hoots means “evacuate,” four hoots means “all clear.” All this is by order of the Homeland Security Department. JAPANESE U.N. BIGWIGS TOUR HAMPTON SUBWAY Last week, Kim Jong-il of North Korea toured the subway. This Saturday, we welcomed more Asians. A delegation of Japanese diplomats, led by Japanese assistant ambassador to the U.N.
Myota Hasagowa, were hosted by Hampton Subway PR Director Harold Beckerman on a special junket for a day of beach, sun and fun. After leaving Manhattan at 7 a.m. by bus, the delegation was met by Beckerman at the entrance to our most western subway stop in Westhampton Beach at 9 a.m., where they were immediately taken down to the platform for a breakfast buffet that was set up behind a curtain at the most eastern end so regular straphangers wouldn’t get at it. There, Dr. Bart Waldbaum, an assistant professor of American History at Suffolk Community College, gave them a 30minute slideshow history lesson about the subway. Waldbaum then brought them to the lifesize bronze statue of President Bush and President Putin, who met on that platform in October 2007 to discuss international relations, holding hands. The group then climbed aboard a subway car and toured each of our 14 other subway platforms, with Waldbaum explaining the platforms’ architectural differences and individuality. At each, the visitors took pictures of the station names embedded in multi-colored wall tiles, the newsstand and the token booths, although flash photography was not permitted because it might’ve upset the regular straphangers. At 6 p.m., having visited all the platforms,
the tired tourists, still underground, returned to Westhampton Beach and boarded the waiting buses for the trip back to New York City. A good time was had by all. TROUBLE ON THE DIG TO FOXWOODS The subway system continues to experience problems in our attempt to dig a tunnel from Sag Harbor to Foxwoods. The first attempt resulted in the discovery of oil under Long Island Sound, a find that proved disastrous to the subway crews digging the tunnel when oil flooded their work. The second attempt was to be a great semi-circle around the oil. Out of Sag Harbor, the tunnel turned due west at Long Island Sound and ran just offshore underwater to Port Jefferson, where it turned north and headed for Bridgeport, Connecticut. The intention was to turn east once it neared that city and run parallel to the Connecticut shore and around the oil as it headed to Foxwoods. By last week, the tunnel was supposed to reach Bridgeport and begin the second 90-degree turn. But when that right turn was dug with the heavy equipment, the new tunnel broke into the tunnel that was already dug. Apparently, the turn was much greater than just 90 degrees. It had made a complete loop. Since the tracks now link up with the tracks coming the other way, all construction has halted until the workmen find out what they are supposed to do besides go back to Port Jefferson. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE A few days ago, I began receiving reports that one of the subway cars displayed above its windows advertisements for hemorrhoids, debt con(continued on page 29)

DAN'S PAPERS, October 30, 2009 Page 29 www.danshamptons.com
Twentysomethingâ€ŚBy David Lion Rattiner Itâ€™s kind of amazing how quickly you can change the mood of most people in the Hamptons. All you need to do is talk about the stock market. Nearly everybody lost money in the stock market during 2009, but the worst of it happened around this time last year. I was so depressed, especially around Christmas. Nothing was good. Anybody I ran into was depressed, no matter how much good news they had in their lives. Even if theyâ€™d just won a new car, gotten married, had a kid, bought a houseâ€”it didnâ€™t matter, they were miserable. Weâ€™d talk about the losses and how, if we had any brains, weâ€™d be buying back into the market because if we didnâ€™t, when the recovery came, weâ€™d be kicking ourselves. Well, since that low time (I think it started around March or early April), the stock market has been climbing, steadily, triumphantly and in some cases without any reason. It seems that all investors are trying to out think everythingâ€” including companies with tremendous debt/losses that shouldâ€™ve been out of business. But the government printed more money, and the stock went up in price. And little by little, just about everybody I know bought back in. Nothing major, but enough to pay attention. Well here we are, six months into this climb, and everyoneâ€™s attitude is changing. Iâ€™m talking everyone, even people who have no idea what the hell the Dow Jones Industrial average is. Iâ€™ve been to parties where a circle forms and people talk about their latest victory in the stock marketâ€”many times these are the same people who
lost most of their 401ks in the crash. â€œI just made 30% on Goldman, baby! Man, am I happy.â€? And we all celebrate our genius. Itâ€™s this quality of human nature that makes me believe that we are headed in the right direction toward a sustainable recovery. We all easily forget our anger and frustration and eventually, we canâ€™t resist getting back into the game. Just look around. Everybody wants to give it a second chance. Slowly but surely, we forgive, forget and call our broker. Itâ€™s like any relationship. For months, even years, spouses and couples can hate each other, but then one little thing happens, like a gift of flowers, and itâ€™s hunky-dory again. The Dow Jones just gave investors a bouquet of 10,000 flowers. She delivered it at work, crying, apologizing. â€œRegulate me,â€? she said. â€œJust give me another chance. I swear I can make this work.â€? â€œI donâ€™t know, Dow. I donâ€™t know if I can do this again.â€? â€œPlease. Iâ€™ll do anything. Iâ€™ll take money from Obama. Iâ€™ll cap CEO pay. I wonâ€™t even think about bundling mortgages. I swear to God. I wonâ€™t even think about it.â€? â€œIâ€™ll give you this one last chance Dow. But so help me, if you do this again, ITâ€™S OVER!â€? Weâ€™ve said this to Dow before, and weâ€™ll say it again, but for now, weâ€™re working it out. The illusion of being geniuses for making money in a six-month rally fascinates me. Even I stumbled into it. The stock market is just so sexy when itâ€™s going up. A graph of the Dow for the last six months looks like the perfect leg leading
up to a black dress. We romance ourselves with clever words like p/e ratio, points, strikes, executions...itâ€™s all so delicious. But Iâ€™m watching this cheating Dow with a very close eye. Iâ€™m checking its text messages, its e-mail. I donâ€™t care how seductive she can be, because I know how cruel she can be too. Do the nay-sayers have it right? Is this all just a bunch of company fat thatâ€™s been cut, making the profits look better while the revenues continue to decline? Or is this a genuine restructure with sustainable growth? Is this the time to bite? Time will tell, and this flirty soap opera with Dow will continue, just like it always does.

solidation, pawn shops, loans, antacids, legal services and pregnancy options. Puzzled, I looked into it and found that our new public relations manager Beckerman, without any orders from above, recreated a â€œnostalgiaâ€? car, in which straphangers can enjoy what the subways were like back in the 1970s. This car is filthy, littered with candy wrappers, covered with graffiti and has these very offensive ads over the windows. Beckerman has been fired after just four days into his new job. Weâ€™ve had many public relations and marketing men on the subway in the last few years. This is the fewest number of days that any PR man has worked for the subway system, since Carl Murgetroidâ€™s disastrous work in April 2007.

Special Section: Greenhouses: Bringing It All Inside By Susan M. Galardi They sit at the kitchen table, strewn with seed and bulb catalogues, maybe some grid paper, drawing, redrawing. Ordering, ordering. They try to keep themselves occupied and happy, but only one thing can exact them from their doldrums. That “thing” is Spring. And “they” are gardeners. Fall and winter are tough seasons for gardeners – there’s only so much tool sharpening and pot mending a person can do. But some avid gardeners have come up with another solution that elicits a big greenthumbs-up from their peers: Greenhouses. They allow gardeners to never miss a beat when it comes to doing that thing they love. Rob Moraru, a dermatologist with a practice in Manhattan, is in the upper echelon of The challenge: Connecting the greenhouse to the bedroom gardeners – if that term dare be used at all. Moraru grows orchids, thousands of them, in his 300-square-foot greenhouse that’s attached to his home in East Hampton. The life-long passion Window Treatments • Furniture began when he was given his first orchid as freshWall Coverings • Home Staging . . . man at Cornell. A year later the plant bloomed,

Greenhouses. “No one designs and builds their own greenhouses anymore,” said Fowkes. “Greenhouse manufacturers use tempered glass and the structures are relatively energy-efficient – they hold heat, collect passive solar energy.” Moraru’s project presented a few challenges. First, growing orchids is an art as well as a science. The plants have strict requirements in terms of temperature and humidity. Because Moraru lives primarily in Manhattan, that meant a lot of automated bells and whistles. “Orchids also need consistent, pretty high humidity – 80-90%,” he said. “The greenhouse has automatic vents, a ceiling that opens and closes as needed, automatic misting and separate watering systems.

The orchid: Making it all worthwhile and he was hooked. So when Moraru and his partner were looking for a house in the Hamptons, a non-negotiable was a property big enough to add a greenhouse. “My hobby and passion is orchids,” said Moraru, who is also on the board of the Manhattan Orchid Society. “I wanted to expand my growing space, and I needed a greenhouse for that.” Moraru had worked with Bill Fowkes, a secondgeneration builder and the owner of Fowkes Builders in East Hampton. Fowkes and his architect helped him determine the size, style and other particulars of the greenhouse. Then Moraru went online to find a provider, settling on Texas

are areas of the greenhouse that provide microclimates necessary for specific types of orchids.” The greenhouse was built in Texas, then sent here in parts where it was reassembled, “like an erector set,” according to Fowkes. But the foundation and systems had to be completely in place prior to its arrival. “Doing a free-standing greenhouse is pretty basic, but because this one connected to the house, the project was a little more involved,” Fowkes said. Connected indeed. You can walk into Moraru’s greenhouse from the master bedroom. Not a bad place to have your first cup of coffee amid the orchids on a winter’s day. But integrating the new structure was a bit tricky. “There was a gas tank in the way, irrigation, electrical – we had to tie radiant heat into the existing system of the house,” said Fowkes. “It was a challenge, but we put a man on the moon, so we can certainly hook up a radiant floor system.” Even though the greenhouse manufacturers have specific designs and templates, there’s a lot of room for customization. There are several styles available, and the dimensions of the space – as well as the add-ons – are up to the customer. Moraru chose a traditional conservatory style to complement the design of his home. “I specced it out just as I wanted it,” he said. “Looking back, I would’ve built bigger. Five years ago, my collection took up about 1/8 of the space. Now it’s crammed – particularly in the winter when I bring orchids in from outside.” Right now, the star of Moraru’s collection – and his favorite orchid, named Bulbophyllum Medusae – is in bloom. And being a star in this greenhouse is quite a distinction, considering the orchids are 1,000 strong, a number that is most likely growing as quickly as the plants themselves. “Your collection tends to build to fit the greenhouse,” said Moraru. “So I’d say make it as big as possible.”

Painting to Sell, Painting to Dwell
By Allegra Dioguardi When it comes to updating interiors, paint is one of my favorite mediums. It’s so versatile and affordable. Paint can brighten, lighten and provide a room with an entirely new appearance. To the inexperienced, selecting the perfect paint color and finish can be intimidating. After 27 years of selecting paint colors, I can tell just by looking at a paint chip what it will look like in a room and how it will change a space. If you are considering painting, here are a few tips. Color Selection: When painting a home that you live in, color choice is very personal. There are no “right” or “wrong” colors. It depends on the home and the individual. In general, lighter colors will expand space and make a room feel larger. Dark colors can make a room cozier, moodier and more masculine. Dark colors have a reputation for making rooms feel smaller but, when a dark color is used at the end of a sight line, such as an accent wall, it can produce an
effect which will push the wall back and expand the room. Very small spaces such as powder rooms and dens are excellent opportunities to use dark, rich colors. No one expects a powder room to be “spacious” and using strong color can create architectural interest where there is none as well as punctuate the rhythm of an otherwise neutral palette running throughout a house. If you are planning to sell your home in the near future, the days of “paint it all white” are over. If you look at a listing photo of an all white/vacant room; it’s difficult to tell what you are looking at, and it also lacks character. If you want your home to stand out from the competition, I recommend using neutralized colors. These are universally accepted colors that just feel good. Examples of “neutralized” colors that are good for selling are straw, golden beiges, mushroom, warm grays (trending hot this year) and silvery sage green. In general, muted earth and soft water colors are very effective. Whether you are designing to dwell or designing to sell, make sure the paint color you choose complements the wood tones in floors and cabinets, the color of granite, tile or stone and any other existing finishes. You want the wall colors to flow from room to room and complement each other. Selecting the right paint color can make your moldings stand out and your cabinets and tiles look richer and more expensive. Paint comes in several different finishes. Flat or Matte finish is just that – flat, because it doesn’t reflect much light. It is very forgiving if there are
imperfections on your walls but it doesn’t have much zip. Eggshell is what I usually recommend for walls. It is slightly shinier than Matte finish so if your walls have imperfections they may require some prep work. Satin finish is slightly more reflective and shows a shine when looking directly at the surface. It is typically used on trims and doors to make them “pop,” but can be effective on walls that are in pristine condition. Semi-gloss paint works well for moldings and doors, as it is easy to wash and very durable. High Gloss paint has the highest sheen and is typically used for doors and built-in bookcases or cabinets. Additionally, there is an array of textural designer finishes that offer interesting options. For example, Ralph Lauren Paint line has a “Suede” finish (just roll it on) and another called Candlelight, which emulates the “flickering glow of candles” on your walls. Benjamin Moore and Ralph Lauren also offer metallic finishes (an old-world bronze, silvery iron and subtle gold). Used on a ceiling or in a powder room they can be very dramatic. Some of my favorite paint transformations include painting a worn hardwood floor for a fresh new look. You can paint the entire floor or design a painted “faux area rug” to break up a large expanse of hardwood. Your new “area rugs” can be used to define seating areas or “rooms” within the room or simply create (continued on page 36)

By Tamara Matthews-Stephenson With the holiday season just around the corner, it is a perfect time to pull out your vintage collections of porcelain from the dark corners of your cabinets, dust them off and let them shine centerstage for everyone’s enjoyment. I like to mix and match my antique and vintage plates with modern china. By combining various styles of porcelain and pottery, this layered effect adds special warmth to a holiday table. A beautifully arranged table can set the tone for a wonderful holiday meal. This season is one of the only times I proclaim that “more is better” in terms of decorating the dinner table. While in the summer months, my style is to let the

simple beauties of nature speak for themselves, during the winter holidays I often add vintage table linens and runners, cornucopias of fruit and vegetables as centerpieces, and either a parade of small votive candles or tall candelabras to add that special glimmer and sense of wonder. If you are in need of a few unique pieces to add to your collection, the best place to find quality wares is at a local antique fair. I often visit antique shows when they come into town, either in the early morning or at the end of the day, when business is slowest. I ask questions and gently handle the goods, because this is the best way to learn about a particular pattern. People who work in the collectibles business are in it “hook line and sinker” and their lives often revolve around a love for and expertise in these timeless possessions. Many antique vendors travel all year from one show to another. If you hang around the booths at the high-end markets, you can learn much. These professionals are usually quite willing to share their knowledge, and although they are hawking their products, many will linger if sales are slow to chat about their collections and share with you tales of their hunt. You will soon learn that what drives these folks to pursue this career choice is often a passion for history and collecting. There are many vintage and antique patterns to collect.

interest. You must first prep the floor by sanding it, then lay out your design (borders and geometrics like diamonds are easy) and tape it off with painters tape before painting. Most people don’t realize that laminate counters and cabinets can be updated by painting them with a finish called Melamine paint. Make sure you sand them well and wash them with TSP (found in any paint or hardware store) to remove grease so the paint adheres. If you have builders’ standard oak cabinets, you can stain them with a dark walnut stain and replace the hardware for a trendy new look. Also, paint dated wood paneling for a total transformation from dull and dark to House Beautiful! These techniques will require some elbow grease but they are affordable options for a do-ityourselfer. You’ll be amazed at the transformation.

company Limoge, but I also adore Spode patterns as well. I like Danish and English porcelain, and of course, the vintage American styles from the World War II era have a simple elegance that is truly unique. I have been collecting Blue Willow porcelain for over a decade and at every show I attend, I hunt for the distinctive blue and white pattern in the hopes of adding to my collection. Blue Willow was produced in many countries, and although originally made in England in the late 1700’s, those earlier styles are the most expensive. I try to look for Johnson Brothers pieces, which were made in the United States and tend to be more affordable. Some of my Blue Willow is Danish, some American from the 1940s, and a few are from the early 1800s, but I am more careful with these older collections and hang them on my kitchen wall for display to preserve them. Almost every porcelain house made its own version of this style, but there is a distinct look to this pattern, with the “two doves” motif always flying above a large Chinese dwelling flanked by trees, a bridge and other details. Researching the history of a style can be fun and the more you know about what you are collecting, the more interesting it becomes. I learned about the tragic, romantic legend behind the Blue Willow pattern and now that I have this story indelibly etched in my mind, the style holds special meaning for me. The story is of two faithful lovers. On each piece is a magnificent tree-lined Chinese dwelling, which is the home of a Mandarin man. His secretary Chang had fallen in love with his daughter, Koong-see, and they met clandestinely until the man discovered the affair and forbade the two to be together. He ordered the young man banished, while forcing his daughter to
stay hidden in their home, and betrothed her to a wealthy viceroy named Ta-jin. The wedding was planned when the peach tree blossomed in the spring. While Koong-see awaited her wedding day, she found a coconut shell floating in the waves of the pond with a note from Chang threatening suicide. She responded with a note and Chang took his cue once the nuptials began, slipped into the house. The two eloped, escaping in a boat in the rushing tide of the Yangtse River. They bought an island with Ta-jin’s jewels and settled into a new home. Several years elapsed and Chang prospered by tilling his island but when he wrote a novel, it attracted the attention of Tajin. With a military escort, Ta-jin vowed revenge on Chang for stealing his bride and jewels, and attacked the island and mortally wounded Chang. In desperation, Koong-see set fire to the house and perished in the flames. The porcelain depicts the legend of the pitying gods who transformed Koong-see and Chang into two immortal doves that grace the top of each blue and white plate. The scene plays out the tale of this tragic love story. The next time you pass an antique show or shop, you may want to peek inside and check out the gems that sometimes lay hidden on the tables. A few carefully selected items have the power to transform your table into a special event while providing you with interesting stories steeped in legend to share with your friends and family during this holiday season.

Never Have to Clean Your Gutters Again By David Lion Rattiner Gutters. They bring back memories of getting paid a few bucks as a teenager for miserably cleaning them out on the roof. Gutters are hugely important in the never-ending battle between your house and water damage. They keep water from building holes into the ground and they keep rain water from creeping in through windows. Good gutters, correctly pitched and professionally installed can save you thousands of dollars in the long run of home ownership. One of the most annoying and miserable

aspects of gutters is how easily they can get clogged during the Fall season. Leaves that get stuck inside gutters prevent water from running through them properly, making them essentially useless and pointless. You can always hire somebody to head up onto the roof and clean them out, or you can do it yourself, but you might be surprised to know that there is another option, and that is to use The Gutter Shutter Companyâ€™s no clog gutter system. The Gutter Shutter Company is a family-owned company that offers a 20-year guarantee that you will never have to deal with clogged gutters

again. The concept is pretty simple really, with the system utilizing surface tension, similar to the way water clings to the side of a glass from a running faucet. It is not an add on to your gutters, but a seamless, fully incorporated gutter system that is enclosed and designed to keep leaves out and rain water in. The clever system has rainwater flow over the top of the gutter, and then flow down to the edge of the gutter, pushing away any debris as it heads down into the actual chamber of the gutter. This gives the entire gutter a selfcleaning system that can take care of leaves, pine needles and maple seeds (also known as helicopters that you can throw into the air and watch spin to the ground). Itâ€™s a very smart system for your home, and the companyâ€™s reputation stands on its own very impressively, with over 70,000 customers worldwide who use their product. On top of the reputation is the guarantee that the product actually works the way it is supposed to. The Gutter Shutter Company offers a 20-year no pull-away warranty with a 100% money back guarantee. The benefits of the system is that you will never have to clean your gutters again. The system never clogs and the lifetime guarantee is transferable to new owners of your property should you sell. The aluminum that the Gutter Shutter Company uses is .032 gauge aluminum, which is nearly double the thickness and strength of conventional rain gutters and is the strongest aluminum used for residential application. The system can also be used on virtually any kind of roof. The installation process is also complete, with no additional costs. Old gutters are removed if necessary and all the debris is thrown out by a Gutter Shutter employee who normally has years of experience. The new gutters are then installed, with the studs of the system put in every 24 inches, making this ideal for heavy weather on your roof like snow and ice. When the gutters are finally pitched correctly, the elbows of the system are curved, allowing water to not collect at angle points. You can enjoy for the life of your house, a virtually maintenance-free gutter system that is unique and superior to almost all other systems available on the market. If this is something you are interested in getting for your home, email email@example.com, or call 1-866-648-8837 (866-6-GUTTERS) or 631-328-1885. The company is located in Bay Shore on Long Island.

Celebrating Halloween My first Halloween in New York City in 1979 was a real eye-opener. After work one day, as I came out of the subway on the Upper West Side, a group of middle school kids wearing masks ran up to us commuters and yelled, “Got any money?” I felt sorry for kids in the city when it came to Halloween. Celebrating it seemed limited to parties at school or friends’ apartments, or getting a few pieces of hard candy from dry cleaners and liquor stores. It was a far cry from childhood memories of waiting at the door to see all the cool costumes, and even better, trudging from neighborhood to neighborhood with a mob of friends and a pillowcase from which apples and oranges were regularly hurled. Remember the razor-blades-in-the-apples scare? I haven’t heard of any horrible Halloween dangers lately and I’m glad to say that in my entire trick or treating life I’ve never had a bad Halloween candy experience, except for one year when I didn’t get as much chocolate as I would have liked. Otherwise, the big dangers in Halloween candy are limited to what it can do to your blood sugar, weight and dental health. Not only do you have to be concerned about your child, having all that candy around isn’t great for adults either. You probably already have the giant bags of candy from the drug store, but if not, there are other options for Halloween treats. You can avoid the candy predicament all together by giving out non-food items like scary stickers, pencils/erasers or bubbles. But there are risks to this. First, you risk the disapproval of your kids and the shame they may endure at school next week. Also, once word gets out that you have the worst Halloween treats in the neighborhood, traffic to your
house will decrease. So if you go with candy, one suggestion for helping kids and adults manage temptation is to buy candy you don’t like very much (even thought this is the perfect opportunity to stock up on Butterfingers), and to get rid of any that you haven’t passed out to the kiddies right after Halloween. If you bought things you don’t like, it will be easier to part with it. If it’s still packaged, you can give it to a food pantry. Otherwise, it should be quickly relegated to one of those nice Norsic garbage carts. Out here on the East End, which seems like Mayberry sometimes, it’s still important to take precautions to keep those tricksters safe in the dark Hallow’s Eve night. Put the kids in bright costumes or add reflective tape to them (the costumes – not the kids) and candy bags so the kids can be easily seen in the dark. Carrying a glow stick or flashlight is always good, too. Plan out a general trick-or-treating route in familiar neighborhoods with well-lit streets. Avoid poorly lit homes Don’t send the little ones out alone, and always walk with them to the door to get treats. Older kids should travel in groups. Remind kids not to go near cars, occupied or not, unless you’re with them. Make sure kids know their home phone number and address in case you get separated. Little ones should know how to call 911 in an emergency. For fun events for kids, see the special Halloween calendar. For scary grown-up festivities, see Day By Day calendar, page 51.

Over The Barrel: The Harvest Season
Over The Barrel... with Lenn Thompson
Photo by Lenn Thompson
I have a love-hate relationship with the harvest season on the North Fork. On one hand, it’s an exciting time filled with hope for a new vintage of local wines after a – and this is especially true this year – hardfought growing season. There are few smells in the world that make me happier than the smell of new wines fermenting accompanied by an orchestra of bubbling air locks. The tomatoes are mostly gone for another year, but hearty winter squash is peaking now, too – and finding its way onto my dinner plate a few nights a week. I love the fall season on the East End. And I hate it – mostly because of the throngs of pumpkin-picking day-trippers who clog the roads between me and the wineries I want to visit and the wines I want to taste. Of course, those seasonal customers help support local farms and also, I hope, support the same wineries. They are a necessary evil. Of course, they don’t stop me. I still find myself on Main Road and Route 48 almost every weekend,
trying to taste at a few wineries before the traffic slows to a halt. And several wines I’ve tasted lately are well worth the time spent navigating pumpkin- and mum-filled wagons and roasted corn chompers. Here are just a few of them. Palmer Vineyards 2006 Proprietor’s Reserve Cabernet Franc ($25). Spanishborn winemaker Miguel Martin has been a great addition to Palmer Vineyards, and this, one of his first red releases, impresses. Sweet red cherries dominate the nose with brown spice, black pepper and hints of smoky oak. There is a subtle dried-herb component underneath that emerges a bit more after the wine has been open for several hours. Medium-bodied, it has a core of sweet red cherry and raspberry (tasting almost of cherry hard candy) with dusty black pepper, cinnamon spice, light vanilla and leather that carries through on the long finish. The tannins are smooth and well integrated. Onabay Vineyards 2007 Wild Ferment Chardonnay ($27). It’s easy to write off barrel-fermented chardonnay as a category because so many
are done poorly. Not so with this one. As its label hints, it is fermented (two-thirds in oak) using the indigenous (aka “wild”) yeast that is naturally found on the grapes when harvested. The nose offers lots of ripe pear with baking spice, light sweet corn and white flower aromas layered beneath. Mouth-filling, spice-roasted pear flavors lead the way on the fuller-bodied, round-but-balanced palate, with lemon curd stepping forward on the creamy mid-palate. The finish is long and crisp, with nice acidity and an intriguing spicy lees note. Sparkling Pointe 2005 Topaz Imperial ($33). Owners Tom and Cynthia Rosicki opened their new tasting room on Route 48 last weekend and as we tasted through their three bubblies, this one – for the money – stood out. A faint topaz color (thus the name), this sparkler made with pinot noir and chardonnay offers beautiful, high-toned cranberry, white cherry and pear flavors with a slightly cream mid-palate and terrific acidity. I bought a bottle to share with my family at Thanksgiving. Long Island Merlot Alliance 2006 Merliance ($35). Co-produced by the members of the Long Island Merlot Alliance, this cool-year red has a layered, complex nose of red cherry, raspberry and blackberry fruit sprinkled with a generous array of herbs (thyme, mint and lavender), a little baking spice, leather and a soft vanilla note. Medium-bodied with understated fruit, the palate has flavors that closely match the nose with a faint eucalyptus note added to the herb salad. The tannins are well incorporated and relatively light with light acidity bringing just a bit more structure. The leathery spice is a bit more pronounced on day two and steps forward on the longer-than-expected finish. This is just a handful of the wines that are worth noting lately. Get out there and explore wine country – even if it means playing a real-life game of Frogger with all those pumpkin pickers.

Life S tyle Raving Beauty
Pump Up the Volume
By Janet Flora
By Janet Flora Remember collagen injections? Before using collagen as a filler for nasolabial folds (those two lines – or folds, depending on how deep yours are – that run from the sides of the nose to the top of the lips), first you had to be tested to see if you were allergic. Most collagen came from cows (thus the term “bovine collagen”), and some women who were allergic were able to use collagen from cadavers. Both options seem equally unappealing, particularly now that there are so many injectables with lovelysounding names such as Radiesse®, Restylane® and Juvéderm™. They all do the same thing and they don’t require allergy testing. They act as fillers for fine lines, folds and wrinkles, not only in the nasolabial folds, but also for the vertical lines around the lips. They can also be used to plump the lips. While each of these fillers erases folds and lines, most differ in how long their results last. There is another injectable that promises to actually rebuild collagen. The product is Sculptra™, a synthetic material not made from human or animal sources. The main ingredient is Poly-L-, a derivative of the alpha hydroxy family. Sculptra has been approved since 1994 for treatment of facial wasting in HIV patients, but this year it received approval for cosmetic use. I spoke to Jeanine B. Downie, M.D., a board-certi-
fied dermatologist in both New York and New Jersey. Her private practice, Image Dermatology, is located in Montclair, New Jersey. Dr. Downie is frequently featured on the “Today” show, “Good Morning America,” “The View” and many other national TV shows. She said, “I have been using Sculptra cosmetically since 2004.” According to Dr. Downie, the product is gaining popularity. “It works best on sagging skin,” she said. It is also used around the temples and where hallowing tends to show age. Most

remarkably, Sculptra can be used in the hands, which seem to age faster than the rest of our bodies due to sun exposure and working conditions. All doctors have different fees, but Dr. Downie charges $1,000 per vial. Typically a patient is injected once a month for three to six months. Results usually last two years. Unlike Radiesse, Restylane and Juvéderm, which are generally used for fine lines and folds, Sculptra can be used for larger areas of the face. It can define cheekbones, build weak chins and fill in hallows underneath the eyes. If there is a buzzword in beauty, it is volume. We want volume in our hair, our eyelashes, our breasts and even our butts. Full is glamorous, full is youthful. One of the causes of aging in women is the lower level of estrogen. Estrogen not only keeps us fertile, but also keeps us looking young. I remember my grandmother touting the benefits of hormone replacement therapy after menopause. Today, however, we know better, and most physicians agree the risks outweigh the benefits. If you want to do more than fill a fold or freeze a brow with Botox, you might consider Sculptra. Like any injectable Dr. Downie told me there are some risks (like bruising at the injection site). But the procedure is safe when performed by a qualified, boardcertified dermatologist.

Simple Art of Cooking Silvia Lehrer Brian Halweil, editor of the impressive magazine, Edible East End, a magazine that touches on local personalities working with all manner of local food, gave a significant speech recently on the political effects of eating locally. I quote Halweil who said, “Because the closer we are to where our food is raised, the more control we have over how it is raised, over how our neighbors are making a living, over how our landscape is used.” “Eating local ends up being an act of conservation, he continued. It’s also a way to conserve the diversity of food. We eat to survive, we also have to eat local to be sure that this place survives.” Indeed here on the East End of Long Island, our vast farming community, the seas that surround us and our local artisans have created an amazing diversity of cheese, honey, mushrooms, preserves and more good things to eat. Yes, many of our farm stands will be closing soon so enjoy the fruits of the field to prepare dishes that you can benefit from through the winter months. Tomato sauces made with sauce tomatoes from farm stands, vegetable soups and vegetables baked into casseroles can be frozen and local poultry, eggs and seafood are available through the year. People need to be persuaded to change their behavior about something as intimate as food – and learn how to cook! TURNIP OR RUTABAGA PUREE Both vegetables are from the cabbage family and are often confused. Rutabagas are larger than turnips and are distinguished by an ‘ochre-colored swollen neck. The turnip has little or no neck. When farm fresh and cooked with care these vegetables can be surprisingly palatable. Serves 6
1 1/2 pounds turnips or rutabaga, trimmed Coarse (kosher) salt 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, sliced 1 tablespoon Turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw) 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves 2 tablespoons cream Freshly ground pepper 1. Scrub turnips clean under running water or if using rutabaga, peel them. Cut turnips or rutabaga into 1/2-inch sliced then cut turnips into 1/2-inch wedges. If using rutabaga cut half the size of the turnips. Place vegetable in a pot of cold water to cover and bring to the boil over high heat. Add salt to taste, and cook at a brisk simmer with cover ajar, until tender, about 15 to 18 minutes. Test for doneness with the tip of a paring knife. Drain. 2. Place the vegetable in a food processor fitted with steel knife and process to a coarse puree. Add butter, sugar, thyme leaves, cream, salt to taste and freshly ground pepper. Process ingredients to a fine puree, pushing down sides with a rubber spatula as necessary. Taste to adjust seasoning. The puree can be prepared ahead to this point. Keep warm in a water bath, stirring occasionally, until ready to serve or microwave for 11/2 – 2 minutes. CAULIFLOWER WITH TOMATOES AND PARMESAN This timely recipe is a reminder that cauliflower can be a luxurious vegetable when paired with the last of seasonal tomatoes and garden fresh basil. Serves 6-8
1 medium farm-fresh cauliflower, about 1 1/2 - 2 pounds Coarse (kosher) salt for the cooking water Freshly ground pepper 5 ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped 3 tablespoons chiffonade of fresh basil 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese 2 tablespoons plain bread crumbs 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small dice 1. Cut off the base of the cauliflower and remove leaves. Pull the florets away from the core and soak in a bowl of cold water for 20 minutes. Drain. 2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. Add one to two tablespoons of coarse salt to taste and add the florets. Bring back to the boil and cook at a brisk simmer for 6-7 minutes; then drain and refresh under cool water. Drain well and pat dry to absorb as much of the moisture as possible. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 3. Arrange florets in a buttered baking dish. In a bowl, mix the tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper to taste and spoon over the cauliflower. Pour over olive oil to and toss to coat. Mix the cheese and breadcrumbs and sprinkle evenly over the mixture. Can be prepared ahead to this point and refrigerated covered for several hours or overnight. When ready to bake, bring to room temperature if refrigerated, dot with butter and bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes until hot and bubbly. Serve at once. Recipe may be frozen for up to a month.

Restaurant Review: The Blue Parrot, East Hampton By Susan M. Galardi What kind of a person would go to a Mexican restaurant and order a grilled organic Cornish hen marinated with lime and tequila? The same kind of person who would then be extremely happy and self satisfied. The Blue Parrot in East Hampton, which, two years ago, went the way of the canary in the coal mine, was given new life last summer by a brand new team of investors/owners – namely Ron Perelman, Jon Bon Jovi and Renee Zellweger. Last summer, the place was crazy – sometimes you couldn’t even get into the bar. So it was wonderful to go to the Blue Parrot for an early (5:30) dinner on a Saturday night. The interior of the Parrot has been cleaned up. Banquettes with new moss green cushions have been added to the back dining room, which is decorated with vintage posters of films like Viva Zapata and Tristessa. The place feels warm and happy, very unHampton. Not only could I imagine it to be a perfect extension of the beach where you could slap in on flip flops, but on that chilly fall night, it was a real mood changer just to walk into the place, with its bright colors, fanciful décor (like strings of cowboy boot and cactus lights, and painted ukeleles) and upbeat music. Appetizer selections include the expected guacamoles (classic and the more spicy chipotle) for $12, as well as steamed mussels, nachos (both $12), and taquitos (three for $14). We tried the classic guacamole which was very mild, with a very little hint of much else but avocados. That day, the avocados used in the guac weren’t the ripest, creating more of a juicy result than a smooth mush. The restaurant offers quesadillas ($14-17) and burritos ($14-16), as well as a variety of salads at $11-14) but we opted for the entrees: Enter, the Cornish hen ($25).
I don’t know how Mexican this is, beyond the lime/tequila marinade, but it was just delicious. The bird came butterflied and largely de-boned. The meat was moist and flavorful, the skin crispy and pleasantly salty, the sauce was rich and well balanced. On top was a small pile of pickled onions, just the thing to add tang. Sides of lightly seasoned rice and mild black beans made it a very nice dish. We also tried the Shrimp Albahaca Pipian ($24), which was shrimp hidden beneath a goodly amount of pesto sauce. How was it Mexican? The pesto was made with pumpkin seeds rather than pignolas. This was served with very good sautéed spinach with garlic, and white rice. Other entrees range in price from $17 for meatballs and $19 for Chile Relleno, to our entrees which were at the highest price point. Blue Parrot had a good kids menu. The young diner at the table tried the burger, which was a completely respectable, substantial Black Angus beef burger served on a toasted Kaiser roll with fries. The
burger is $13 on the dinner menu, $12 on the bar menu. Desserts, all $8, include a chocolate mousse cake, ice cream or sorbet, and a Cinnamon Corn Flan which was delicious. The custard had just a mild scent of cinnamon, and was served with four concord grapes and fresh mint. We also tried a special dessert, Chihuahua cheese cake made with Chihuahua cheese. A “good” cheesecake is a very personal judgment. This had some pleasant grit, more in the style of those delectable, well-textured Italian ricotta cheesecakes than the all-cream-cheese concoctions more popular in this neck of the woods. The mildly sweet cheesecake was served on a plate of tart strawberry puree, and topped with a layer of caramel sauce. I’d order it again. You can’t talk about Mexican restaurants, especially the Blue Parrot, with talking about Margaritas. The house special “Dirty Bird” at $9, was fresh and tasty without being mouth puckering – and this, we were told, is the most tart of the three margies they offer. There’s a small but good selection of wines by the glass, priced from $8 to $13; an equally small list of wines by the bottle, from $35 for an Argentinian “Don David” to a $575 bottle of Colgin Cellars Tychan Hill Vineyard Cabernet. It’s all about tequilas here – from $11 for a shot of Chinaco Silver and Milagro Silver to $45 for H. Seleccion Suprema. Blue Parrot has lots of special menus: A lunch menu with the expected Mexican offerings as well as tortas with tuna, meatballs, or grilled chicken; a bar/late night menu at reasonable prices; and special nights like Dirty Bird Tuesdays, two for one Wednesdays and Karaoke Thursdays. Blue Parrot: 33 Main Street, East Hampton, 3292583. Lunch daily, 11:30-3:30; Dinner Sun.-Thurs. 5:30 – 10:30/Fri. and Sat. 5:30-11 p.m.

Arts & Entertainment Honoring the Artist: Dan Rizzie
Among the many images on the website of this week’s cover artist Dan Rizzie, one in particular stands out and gives a clue as to the artist’s aesthetics. The image can be easily lost in the accompanying text: a solitary bird in the foreground with alphabet letters floating in the background. The letters seem arbitrarily placed, and don’t appear to form words. For this critic, the juxtaposition of both the single visual and the letters constitutes Rizzie’s “language,” one that is disparate and segmented (since it’s not clear how the bird and the alphabet are connected), yet also symbiotic in nature. Put simply, Rizzie’s aesthetics are influenced by diverse living experiences and environments. Yet no matter where he lives and works, those reflections are constantly with him. Such an observation may apply to other artists as well, but somehow Rizzie’s influences are less obvious, signifying something close to stream-of-consciousness. For example, a bird placed on a tree branch may represent a particular time and place, while a similar bird positioned differently in another print, painting or collage may symbolize a contradictory environment or experience. Q: First, the obvious question: how did your living conditions impact your art? A: I grew up overseas in the Middle East and India. Visiting the pyramids, for example, had a lasting influence on my life. Q: I would imagine Islamic art also played a big role. A: I went back to India this summer; the Islamic imagery and the inlaid floral designs all made a big impression. I brought one of my catalogs with me and gave it to the guide at the Taj Mahal. He was surprised, and so was I, at the similarities. I was kind of stunned, in fact, that I had kept the imagery in my imagination. Q: When you moved here in 1989, how did this setting influence you? A: When I first saw the house in North Haven that I would move into, I said, “This is my house.” I made two moveable glass doors from my garage doors so I could look out and see the water, birds feeding, deer. Q: Thus the presence of birds in your work. There are so many things going on at one time when you look out the window; that’s in your art, too. It’s like a stream-of-consciousness, at least to me. A: Moving out here was good for me. I can control (continued on next page)
Keb Mo’ at WHBPAC By Tiffany Razzano Promoting the release of his latest album Live & Mo’ – the first to be released on his new independent label, Yolabelle International – bluesy singersongwriter Keb’ Mo’ will come to the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on Nov. 1 as part of a coast-tocoast tour. Very much rooted in the traditional blues music of the Mississippi Delta, Mo’s songwriting transcends genres, embracing jazz, folk, rock and even pop music. Live & Mo’ is a mix of old favorites – six songs culled from recordings of past live performances – and four new studio recordings, including “A Brand New America, “Victims of Comfort,” “Government Cheese” and “Hole in the Bucket.” This album marks the break of Mo’, a thrice Grammy-nominated artist, from the Epic record label, during a time when you see more and more major artists pulling away from bigger labels. The album can be purchased online at kebmo.com. Mo’ recently redesigned his website’s merchandise store, Mo’ Stuff, to coincide with the release of his album. The online store features not only his entire discography, but also a clothing line and other items. Mo’s keeping busy in other ways, as well. He has donated an acoustic version of his song “A Brand New America” to the Census 2010 informational video pro-
duced by the NAACP. He’s also lent his vocals to the video in a different way, by doing the voiceover for it. And he’s no stranger to acting. He portrayed Robert Johnson in a documentary, appeared on “Touched By an Angel” and “The West Wing,” and will make an appearance on an episode of Comedy Central’s “Sarah Silverman Program.” He’ll be joined by Roy Gaines and Finis Tasby, who both also hail from the Los Angeles blues scene. Born in Los Angeles as Kevin Moore to parents whose roots were in the Deep South, he became involved in the local blues scene after becoming interested in blues and Gospel music at an early age. Eventually, after performing and releasing music under his own name, he adopted the stage name of Keb’ Mo’, introducing it to the world with a selftitled album in 1994. Since then, Mo’ has been unstoppable, releasing more than 10 albums. He received his first Grammy nomination in 1996 for Just Like You, and was nominated again with his next release, Slow Down, two years later. He was most recently nominated for 2004’s Keep It Simple. Keb’ Mo’ will perform at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center at 8 p.m. on Nov. 1. Tickets are $115/$95/$75. Tickets can be purchased at whbpac.org. Go to kebmo.com for more information.

my work, all those things happening at once. Q: How about the circular forms in your work? Where did they come from? A: Alan Shields gave me an iron circular ball, which was a perfect sphere. That influenced me. Q: What other setting has impacted you? A: Italy. We go to Lucca every year; it’s surrounded by a medieval wall and not far from Florence. The town’s patina and color are inspirations. I feel at home. Q: Are you involved with art that is more collaborative and less influenced by your environment? A: Yes. I love making prints and working with the Cleveland Print Club. I also love to cook, using my grandparents’ and mother’s recipes. Q: You’ve talked about subject matter, but how about materials? Has your environment impacted that? A: I love “stuff” in Europe, which is so historical. And I love old paper, “ephemera.” Also I like using local materials I find in flea markets. Q: There you are, putting things together, not from what you see but perhaps from what you imagine. Be that as it may, how would you describe yourself? A: I’m steeped in tradition. I am a traditionalist. –Marion Wolberg Weiss Mr. Rizzie’s work can be seen online at www.danrizziestudio.com.

GORGEOUS CAR Dear Bob Gelber, Every week I always enjoy getting to your column. But, the October 2 issue was particularly fun since I am the owner of a ‘67 Primrose Jaguar XKE Convertible. Thank you for recognizing what I have always truly believed that it is probably one of the most beautiful car designs and this is a car that I have regularly enjoyed driving every summer in Southampton for the last 18 years. Joel J. Cooper President List Strategies, Inc. Madison Avenue NYC Via e-mail
this year. Parents and others who care about our children’s health should work with PTAs and school officials to demand healthful plant-based school meals, snacks, and vending machine items. They can get additional information at schoolnutrition.org, schoolmeals.nal.usda.gov, healthyschoollunches.org, and choiceusa.net. Sincerely, Brody Warden Calverton, NY Via e-mail I agree. - DR
It is. The Austin Healey of 1958 is pretty cool too. - DR DEFICIT INFO Dear Dan, Thanks for the info on the size of the deficit. I assume that there simply would not be enough violations to cover something that large. However, I believe that if we had a public lynching of all the guilty politicians, charging $200 per person for viewing, we would end up with a surplus! One further idea that just might make our elected officials actually do some good for a change just as we have to put our homes up for collateral when we borrow money from a bank, how about each public official having to do the same? We might actually end up with some real accountability for the first time. Steven Romm Wainscott Via e-mail What? - DR
SHELTER ISLAND, NOT MONTAUK Dear Dan, The film Masquerade with the burning sailboat starring Rob Lowe, was filmed on Shelter Island, not Montauk, as is stated in the article. The boat burned behind Redding’s Market on Bridge Street. Thanks Hilary A Zwicky Shelter Island Via e-mail Oh. Thanks for the correction. - DR
MEAT Dear Editor, Just in time for the observance of National School Lunch Week, the Baltimore City Public School system became the first in the United States to offer its 80,000 students a weekly break from meat and associated chronic diseases. It’s a welcome start on a long road to improving our children’s and our nation’s health. Traditionally, the National School Lunch Program has served as a dumping ground for USDA’s surplus meat and dairy commodities. Not surprisingly, USDA’s own surveys indicate that 90% of American children consume excessive amounts of fat, and only 15% eat the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables. Consequently, nearly half of American children are overweight, 25% have high cholesterol and blood pressure, and 30,000 suffer from Type 2 diabetes, once limited to adults. Their early dietary flaws become lifelong addictions, contributing to the escalating public health crisis. But change is on the way. Hawaii, California, New York, and Florida legislatures have asked their schools to offer daily vegan/vegetarian options. According to the School Nutrition Association, 52 percent of U.S. school districts now do. President Obama is likely to call for similar measures when Congress reauthorizes the Child Nutrition Act later
THE SUBWAYS AMONG US Dear Dan, I just saw “The Hamptons Subway Newsletter” and wanted to relay a story to you. My husband (Rob) and I (Damia) have a small design studio in Northampton, Massachusetts. This past holiday we made a fake subway map poster of our area to give to friends and clients as a gift. We also gave several out to local caféés, restaurants and stores that we frequent. Enough people saw them and told us we should sell them that we started to look into it as a side project and possible business. So a few months ago, we launched Transit Authority Figures – purveyors of fake/highly unlikely/ideal world subway system maps. We now have nine posters, and included in the most recent set is a map of The Hamptons/North Fork/Shelter Island (). Today I was doing research to figure out what blogs and press outlets we should send information to. In fact, I was getting ready to send some information about our version of The Hamptons/North Fork Subway Map to your blog. But when I went down to our studio, Rob was looking shocked. He had been to the Hamptons in May and had picked up one of your papers. It’s been on a shelf since then, but today he picked it up and saw in the contents your subway newsletter. And then we saw your book One Year on the Hamptons Subway and momentarily panicked, as we thought it might actually be real. Then we realized that you have this amazing sense of humor about the place and how the subway might actually work. I wish we’d found you a few months ago! So...I would love to send you one of our posters. And if you have time, I’d also love to chat about your vision of the subway. Please let me know if there is an address where I can send it. Thanks so much and cheers! Damia Stewart Rob & Damia Design One is now framed and hanging in our offices. -DR
Police Blotter Accident A car accident took place in Bridgehampton down the street from the Candy Kitchen. The cars involved were a Lexus SUV and a Honda Civic. The Civic crashed behind the SUV. No injuries were reported. School Bus Whoopsie A school bus with students inside, smashed into a parked car at East Hampton High School. Nobody was injured, but the vehicle involved received more than $1,000 in damages. Mad Dog A woman in Montauk reported to police that a man yelled at her after her dog went near the man and began to eat fish that he left laying out on the
beach. The woman told police that the man then pulled out a knife and threatened her. She called police, who could not find anybody on the beach when they arrived. That is one very angry fisherman out there in Montauk. Chill. Green Bike A green bike was reported stolen, valued at around $458. It was stolen while parked in town in East Hampton. There were no reports of a hot pink bike stolen. Hot Chili A man on the North Fork began throwing hot chili at another man at a chili making contest. An argument broke out between to men, and one resorted to chili throwing after he became furious at how the
other man talked about his chili. No charges were filed, but the victim of the chili throwing is demanding retaliation. He is hoping to be able to throw hot oatmeal at the man at a later date. Shelter Island …….cockadoodle dooo…….ribbit…….ribbit…….meow…….ruff...ruff……it’s kind of cold in here, close the window……ribbit. Paranormal Idiocy Teenagers in Hampton Bays were caught sneaking into the new film Paranormal Activity over the weekend. The teenagers were caught after one was spotted by a movie employee going in through the back door of the theater. By David Lion Rattiner
