Welcome to Worth Avenue I

MITCH HERRING PHOTOGRAPHY

f you haven’t been to Worth Avenue, you haven’t been to Palm Beach. Throughout the years, I have come to see what a special experience Worth Avenue is—for shop owners as well as visitors. We are steps from the ocean in an enclave of graceful historic architecture tempered by hometown charm and tropical breezes. Our merchants have a strong association that is built upon a legacy of flawless personalized customer service—and a commitment to giving back to the community. We are pleased to say our visitors share in these values through a shopping experience that is both luxurious and low-key, as easy as it is elegant. We want Worth Avenue to be a place they feel is their own, and we work hard to make sure everyone feels at home. There are more than 200 shops and restaurants on Worth Avenue and in its romantic courtyard “vias”—from couture to mom-and-pop boutiques. We have something for everyone, from home furnishings to eyewear, resort fashion to gift shops. There are splashing fountains and sculptures, hidden staircases and climbing bougainvillea. Most of all, there is the inimitable Worth Avenue magic, the sense that you are here but somewhere else as well, a touch of Europe, a little slice of island time. Worth Avenue is all of that. This magazine celebrates Worth Avenue and reflects it classic charm. In fact, we are happy to announce that it has again won “Best Custom Publication” from the Florida Magazine Association—a statewide honor that underscores its quality and position in Florida’s publishing industry. I hope you will enjoy your time with the magazine and with us and that you discover the special character of Worth Avenue as I have over the years. And that you come back, again and again.

Marley Herring President, Worth Avenue Association

PARKING IS PLENTIFUL. Historic Worth Avenue is a street of dreams, and parking is a breeze. Valet parking is available at the Apollo parking lot, just north of Worth Avenue, off Hibiscus Avenue, as well as at the parking garage, at 150 Worth Ave., just across from the beach. Plentiful two-hour parking spaces are available on Worth Avenue itself, and two-hour metered parking can be found on Peruvian Avenue (one block north of Worth Avenue). If you use one of our parking lots, be sure to ask when you are shopping to have your ticket validated by participating merchants. Please visit our website, worth-avenue.com, for our calendar of events, merchandise and news.

Jennifer Garrigues says a modern, coastalinspired home has a couple things in common: comfort and coziness. And she should know. With more than 30 years of interior design experience, Garrigues has been designing homes in Palm Beach, New York and everywhere else in the world. Garrigues says one of the easiest ways to amp up the coastal vibe is to include ocean and sand colors in your home, either through paint, furnishings or accent colors. “Be sure it has some strength and personality to it,” she says. “And, ‘modern’ doesn’t always have to imply white; look for colors that work for you and that you want to live with.” To enhance the home’s contemporary yet relaxed feel, Garrigues says to keep rooms clean and uncluttered. “Negative space is quite calming,” she says. It’s important to keep the feel airy and light, and crowding a space can defeat that goal. That includes lighting. Keep the home devoid of unsightly lines and wires, and use glass or Lucite lamps to add a modern touch. Even more, Garrigues advises to keep accessories—especially overtly nautical ones—to a minimum. She says something as simple as a basket with shells in it adds enough coastal impact to a modern home. She also suggests incorporating patio furnishings inside the home to keep a casual yet outdoorsy feel. Cream, offwhite, blue and green hues make a home instantly relaxed and coastal. “Even if you mix and match indoor and outdoor furniture, be sure to bring the upholstery colors together by adding complementary pillows that will bring color into a room,” she says. With so many flooring material options, Garrigues says keeping to a light color will enhance the seaside look. She says using a stone floor for the entryway or bathroom and mixing in wood flooring for other parts of the home might be the perfect blend. “Just add a darker rug on the light floors to anchor the room,” Garrigues advises.

No-boredom workouts! L Mix it up a little with these fun fitness regimens.

ongtime Palm Beach personal trainer Craig Campbell knows what’s hot and what’s not among local fitness buffs. Campbell, who co-owns Palm Beach Fitness with his wife Aprill, says gone are the days of going to the gym and doing the same workout time and time again. Change is good, Campbell says. “A lot of trendy stuff is high-intensity interval training, so you’re getting cardio and resistance training at the same time,” Campbell says. “Shorter, more intense workouts are kind of what it’s all about.” But high-intensity training isn’t for everyone. Functional training is in demand, according to Campbell. That focuses on maintaining strength, balance, movement and flexibility. Still another trend: boutique gyms that have a focus or brand, such as CrossFit, spinning, boxing, circuit training, boot camps and more. The great news is there’s no getting bored. Campbell encourages his personal training clients to do a little bit of everything, from gym workouts to yoga and Pilates. A traditional sport that has become increasingly popular with fitness fans is boxing, and Boxfit Palm Beach head trainer and owner Ian Curran is at the forefront in Palm Beach. Born and reared in England, Curran worked for the Queen’s cousin, the Duke of Westminster, as a wine sommelier and later as a fitness trainer to royalty. During those years,

40

he traveled the world, learning from sports superstars in boxing, kickboxing, soccer and more. In addition to boosting strength and cardio respiratory fitness, boxing improves a number of other fitness-related skills, from balance and coordination to reactivity and agility, Curran says. “It improves your golf game and also your tennis game, as well as leaves you with a great overall feeling of well-being,” he says. “It’s also the best thing to de-stress. With a burn rate of 1,000-plus calories per session, there’s nothing that compares. That’s why Victoria’s Secret models, high-level executives, hedge fund managers, brokers, actors, athletes, CEOs, doctors and company leaders are drawn to our facility.” Spinning off a new program from a more traditional discipline is the hallmark of the Pure Barre franchise. Founded by dancer, choreographer and fitness guru Carrie Rezabek Dorr, the Pure Barre exercise and lifestyle brand has taken the U.S. by storm. Diane Rico, of Pure Barre West Palm Beach, says clients can see results in as little as 10 classes. “Pure Barre is a full-body workout combining elements of Pilates and ballet,” Rico says. “It utilizes small isometric movements at the ballet barre, working the muscles to fatigue and immediately stretching them back out. Pure Barre is great for strengthening and is low impact; therefore, [it’s] safe on the joints and to do every day.” If hitting a gym or a dance studio is not your cup of tea, you can always take to the waves on a stand-up paddleboard (S.U.P.)—and do a little yoga besides. Eau Spa, at 100 S. Ocean Blvd. in Manalapan, offers yearround private S.U.P. yoga lessons, as well as a sprinkling of S.U.P. yoga classes during summer months. The full-body workout offers physical and mental benefits, giving those who dare a remarkable sense of balance, power, heart health, weight loss and stress relief, according to Eau Spa. Private lessons at the resort are by appointment only, depending on weather conditions. Individual private lessons are $160. Package pricing is available.

Graceful Aging When advising customers on anti-aging products, Le Visage skin care specialist Lindsey Booth asks two main questions: What is the product’s purpose, and what ingredients are in it that will help you achieve desired results? Those questions have helped Le Visage customers achieve a luxurious, individualized experience each time they step inside the Palm Beach boutique and spa. Here, Booth gives her five best tips on how to prevent the appearance of aging:

COLLAGEN: “One of the things we lose as we age is collagen, which is a very important ingredient, so be sure to look for it in high concentration.” BEE PRODUCTS: “Products like royal jelly have a reparative effect for lines and wrinkles, and will penetrate the deeper layers of the skin.”

PEPTIDE BLENDS: “Some women make the mistake in thinking all they need is a moisturizer. While that’s important, if you’re not using a moisturizer that’s high in a peptide blend along with collagen, it isn’t doing an effective enough job on its own.”

important to preparing the canvas that you’re applying treatment to.” SUN PROTECTION: “Always use an SPF. It’s hot and it’s sunny in Palm Beach. Be sure to always use an SPF, even if it’s blended in your makeup.”

hat is old is new again—everyone in Palm Beach knows that. Just ask the chefs of Palm Beach, who, despite trends like kale everything, cauliflower rice and elevated toast, know that classic food is always in season. Take the dynamic chef duo Josh Thomsen and Manlee Siu at Eau Palm Beach. Thomsen serves as executive chef at Eau Palm Beach, and Siu is the chef de cuisine at Angle. They joined the Palm Beach food scene from Agricola Eatery in New Jersey last year, bring-

ing with them a keen interest in local produce. Siu, for instance, somehow manages to incorporate current food trends into the menu without falling into the food trend trap. “I don’t believe that because it’s a trend, we’re going to do it,” Siu says. “Every region and every location is going to be different. Just because someone’s doing, say, tomatoes or cherries, everyone’s doing something with that. I’m not going to do that as a trend, because it’s not growing here. I don’t think Chef (Thomsen) and I follow trends.”

Still, their menus can’t help but reflect some of the national consumer interests, even if they don’t realize it: for example, their methods of fermented foods and their heavy reliance on local, seasonal produce. “I’m not reinventing the wheel—it’s something someone’s always done,” Siu says, about her keen interest in fermenting foods. “I’m just presenting it in a more formal setting. And I’m doing it because it’s the only way to stay true to what we’re preaching, which is stay local and preserve the seasons.”

“I do want to do more trendy stuff, but it’s a matter of working it into the menu,” Coughlin says. “You kind of have to go very slowly (with changes).”

During the summer, as the growing season dies down and the farms close, she kicks into high gear with her pickling and begins preserving the carrots, ramps, okra and green beans, something that excites Siu for prolonging vegetables’ longevity. “The season’s over, but we’re still able to put them on the menu,” she says. Thomsen echoes Siu’s belief of staying above the trends rather than following them. “For the longest time—and Manlee and I have been together for the longest time—out here we call it farm-to-table and out there, they call it cooking,” Thomsen says. “We almost get offended when people call it farm-to-table.” And in regard to fermenting? “Mother Nature gave us amazing stuff, and Manlee wants to preserve it so we can have it in different parts of the year,” Thomsen says. Over at Temple Orange—or TO, as Thomsen affectionately calls it—he’s tackling the

problematic lionfish and serving it fish ‘n’ chips style. “We say it’s trendy, but let’s be serious,” Thomsen says. “Lionfish is a problem. How could I make something palatable that’s a garbage fish? I thought fish ‘n’ chips. It works.” Up the street at the Chesterfield, Executive Chef Gerard Coughlin travels to the Chesterfield’s sister hotels in London to trade ideas and see what’s trending. Last year, he created a snapper ceviche that’s been particularly popular with diners. “I do want to do more trendy stuff, but it’s a matter of working it into the menu,” Coughlin says. “You kind of have to go very slowly (with changes).” The ceviche is a hamachi, tuna and salmon

ceviche trio flash-marinated on the plate with lime juice and served with a bit of radish, cucumber, green onion, chives, dill and cilantro. The restaurant finishes it with a touch of soy sauce and sesame oil and serves it as an appetizer. Then there’s Coughlin’s foray into fresh pasta. “Fresh pastas are starting to become really popular,” Coughlin says. “I made some the other day here. I watched a YouTube [video]; you can make it without a machine.” Bice, which opened in Palm Beach in 1990, is no stranger to fresh pasta and recently expanded its offerings to include gluten-free pasta. It now offers a gluten-free penne and occasionally gluten-free spaghetti, in addition to its deliWORTH AVENUE

cious and famed risotto, which is also gluten-free. “On the main menu, I change items once or twice a month,” Executive Chef Elmer Saravia says. “Signature dishes you don’t touch! You can change dressings, though— you can make it more twangy, (give them) more flavor.” Saravia has steered his menu to incorporate more local produce as well, using heirloom tomatoes from Walt’s Heirloom Tomatoes and buying local microgreens. He sources his seafood from Independent Seafoods and looks for local fish as well. He also has a vegetable platter for guests that

desire a meat-free dinner, filled with eggplant, red onions, Belgian endive, radicchio, zucchini, asparagus and tomatoes marinated in extravirgin olive oil with salt, pepper and balsamic. And then there’s the app he can’t take off the menu: the artichoke dish. “Guests that we have here … they will come with a knife and look for me in the kitchen (if I take it off ),” Saravia jokes. There is one guest he has that comes and orders it whenever she misses her mother. It’s comprised of a whole artichoke braised with white wine and chicken stock with garlic, thyme, parsley, salt and pepper, and finished with lime juice, fresh mint and thyme. And as poke bowls sweep the nation, he demurely offers up a tuna tartare as an alternative option. “Its flavors just are like music,” Saravia says. “You feel an explosion.”

Garden to Glass Cocktails with a healthy provenance

A

s farm-to-table cuisine continues sweeping the nation (can we just call it cooking now?), the latest trend to hit the bars also has root in restaurants’ soil: the garden-to-glass movement. Over at the Breakers, HMF incorporates as many fresh herbs as possible, plucked straight from its plush gardens and dropped into its opulent glassware. “Our garden is year-round in Florida,” says Nick Velardo, vice president of food and beverage for the Breakers. “Our rosemary grows year-round in summer, but many things are mostly in winter, which is wonderful because it’s our season.” In addition to rosemary, the garden also yields basil and lemongrass, popular components to top-selling cocktails. The lemongrass is an integral component over at HMF in the Mojito Royale: Bacardi, lemongrass kaffir lime syrup, lime, Champagne and club soda. And then there’s the GT. Just when you think you’ve seen all the cucumber drinks, this combines rosemary and cucumber in a surprising flavor profile. The GT combines Hendrick’s Gin with three Kirby cucumber slices (muddled and strained), a giant sprig of rosemary (also muddled and strained) and more of both to garnish. “The GT is a very, very herbal drink,” Velardo says. “You’re muddling a big sprig of rosemary and then garnishing it with another sprig. That’s a very herbaceous drink. It’s almost a whole cucumber in that drink. It’s really one that comes to mind when you think of a garden drink.” It’s no surprise to find such commitment from a resort that’s been using its garden in the kitchen for years. A cycle of gardeners grow herbs every day, with chefs following after them. “I think when you think of garden-to-glass cocktails, it appeals to people who like to think they’re having something healthy and putting something healthy in their bodies,” Velardo says. “Cocktails are like food, and they change seasonally and constantly evolve with the seasons. Cocktails should be created with great produce.”

On the Avenue HISTORIC WALKING TOURS OF WORTH AVENUE November 2016 through April 2017

Every Wednesday during the busiest season, November through April, local and international visitors have the opportunity to take an hour-long walking tour of Worth Avenue with historian Rick Rose. Through colorful anecdotes and commentary, the exciting and informative tours explore the origins and character of Worth Avenue, its unique architecture, the historical significance of many of its legendary landmarks and some of its famous residents. Tours begin at 11 a.m. in Via Amore (formerly Via Gucci) at 256 Worth Ave., across from Tiffany & Co. and Chanel. There is free two-hour parking along Worth Avenue or at the Apollo Parking lot behind Tiffany for a small fee. The cost for the tour is $10 per person, a portion of which benefits local charities.

CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING Nov. 29, 2016, 6-8 p.m.

Santa Claus, his elves and performers are decking the halls a little early this holiday season with Worth Avenue’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting, which marks the unofficial start to Palm Beach’s shopping season. Join the Worth Avenue Association and Palm Beach Mayor Gail Coniglio for the annual parade down Worth Avenue and a night of holiday cheer. The parade begins at 6 p.m., but the real magic will occur at 6:29 p.m., when the flip of a switch lights the magnificent 40-foot tree. Be sure to get there early for a chance to get your little ones on Santa’s lap.

PET PARADE AND CONTEST March 11, 2017, 9:30 a.m.-noon

Dogs, cats and bunnies, oh my! The furriest of friends are welcome at Worth Avenue’s 21st annual Pet Parade and Contest. With creative and entertaining categories such as Best Smile, Most Obedient and Best Tail Wagger, owners and their pets have the opportunity to win great prizes and compete for the honor of being one of Palm Beach’s doggy divas. Watch as mistress of ceremonies, Worth Avenue personality Sherry Frankel, introduces each four-legged contestant on this special dog day afternoon. Registration starts at 9:30 a.m., and the contest will begin at 10 a.m.

TURTLE TUESDAYS The second Tuesday of the month, June through October, 2017

Because Palm Beach is one of the largest nesting grounds for sea turtles in the world, Worth Avenue merchants, residents and visitors are welcomed on the second Tuesday of the month during nesting season to help collect and remove dangerous debris from the Palm Beaches. The town of Palm Beach and the Worth Avenue Association provide supplies for the event as part of their community service initiatives.

MUSIC TO MENUS Nov. 17, 2016, 4-9 p.m.

Ths progressive cocktail party with heavy hors d’ouevres hosted by the Worth Avenue Association and Worth Avenue magazine will allow guests to wander Worth Avenue’s romantic vias, serenaded by the Palm Beach Symphony, which will be playing throughout the event. Some stores will be open for extended hours, so guests can indulge in a little shopping as they go.

A Worth Avenue Treasure Hunt Discover the world of Worth Avenue’s charming vias. BY MEGA N K E A R N E Y

T

he Worth Avenue vias— those hidden courtyards tucked along the Avenue— were designed especially by architect Addison Mizner to lend an aura of mystery and European ambience to the street. And the result was a whole dimension of charm that is rarely achieved in the world’s most legendary shopping streets. We took a long walk through the vias to experience them firsthand—and to provide our guests with a “treasure” map extolling their don’t-miss attributes. Ready, set, go!

VIA PARIGI:

FIND IT: Between Brown Harris Stevens and Il Papiro, 300 Block WHAT NOT TO MISS: Although the corridor that makes up the via may feel tiny at first, Via Parigi is anything but. Adorned by a trellis and intricate mosaic staircases, it opens up into a large outdoor terrace. A fountain is the centerpiece of Via Parigi, and abstract iron statues of the four seasons surround it. [ 1 ] This is also home to Stubbs and Wootton, one of Palm Beach’s trademark shoe salons, famous for its embroidered slippers.

VIA MIZNER:

FIND IT: Between Select Fine Art and Style Paris, 300 block WHAT NOT TO MISS: One of the most unique aspects of the via is its small graves, home to Mizner’s pet monkey Johnnie Brown [ 2 ] and Laddie, a dog that belonged to a later Mizner owner, Rose Sachs. As you walk around, if you look closely enough, you’ll see the faded

words “Via Mizner” engraved into a small fountain, reminding you exactly how much history encompasses this via.

VIA ROMA:

FIND IT: Between H.T. Stuart Jewelers and Mariko, 300 block WHAT NOT TO MISS: Via Roma may seem small at first glance, but when you reach the end of the thin corridor, be sure to look up at the intricate skylight [ 3 ] that shines almost as brightly as the jewelry in the window of H.T. Stuart Jewelers and Mariko.

VIA DEMARIO

FIND IT: Between Courage B and East Coast Jewelers/Patricia Robalino, 300 block WHAT NOT TO MISS: Before you enter the via, look up at the entrance and spot the regal lion head staring down at you and the beautiful architecture and columns surrounding it. Via DeMario is home to a classic statue surrounded by exotic orchids— pearl white when in full bloom. [ 6 ]

VIA AMORE:

FIND IT: Between Maus & Hoffman and Ralph Lauren, 300 block WHAT NOT TO MISS: If you’re looking for a true Italian feel, visit Via Mario. A fountain greets you at the entrance of the via, [ 4 ] and a reflecting pond lines the entryway and leads you to another eyecatching sculpture. If you want to have a secluded picnic or lunch, Via Mario is the place for you, as it has tables and chairs in every corner.

FIND IT: Between St. John Boutique and Island Company, 200 Block WHAT NOT TO MISS: Via Amore is filled with sculptures, art and has something eye-catching everywhere you look. Wrought iron gates encompass walls of the first entrance, and sculptures and fountains line each terrace. Lost? Be on the lookout for the mosaic compass [ 7 ] on the ground near Café Via Flora, a quiet café surrounded by trees, flowers and twinkling lights. Additionally, make sure to spot the can’t-miss mural in the via before enjoying a delicious lunch.

VIA BICE:

VIA ENCANTADA:

VIA MARIO:

FIND IT: Between Peter Millar and Trillion, 300 block WHAT NOT TO MISS: A blue-and-white arched walkway leads you to a courtyard and replica of Venus de Milo in Via Bice. The via is most notable for Bice, a restaurant with authentic Italian cuisine and romantic outdoor dining in a spacious courtyard. From an extensive pasta selection to desserts like tiramisu and sorbet, Bice offers a great lunch or dinner on the avenue. [ 5 ]

FIND IT: Between Maje and Sandro, 200 block WHAT NOT TO MISS: This whimsical via has yellow walls and stark white chandeliers, with pink and blue spiral staircases adding splashes of color. A pink iron rose is showcased within the via, adding to its playful ambience. [ 8 ]

Down under has a whole different meaning at the Worth Avenue Pier Debris Dive Site. Schools of tropical fish flash among the spooky debris of the former Worth Avenue Pier. Erected in 1925 and damaged by hurricanes in the 1940s and 1960s, the pier was officially demolished in 1969. Enter the water in front of the clock tower at the end of Worth Avenue and dive at your leisure.

PALM BEACH {A Primer} Who we are, historic moments and how to experience America’s legendary charmed island By Marie Speed & John Thomason

he Palm Beach story started more than a century ago when the 16-mile-long barrier island

(anchored by Henry Flagler’s Royal Poinciana Hotel) was ordained a winter retreat for America’s golden-age society A list. In those early days, Worth Avenue was a sleepy little tropical outpost with an alligator concession, a far cry from today’s designer boutiques and luxe restaurants and blocks of parked Bentleys. Over the years, as Palm Beach solidified its status as one of the country’s social capitals, an insular privileged community emerged, marked by grand mansions and galas, celebrities and industrialists. These days, the community still retains that cachet although in a decidedly younger, more egalitarian style. It’s still rich, still exceptional and still eccentric—but changing with the times. Here’s a snapshot of the Palm Beach mystique, then and now.

WORTH AVENUE

10/20/16 11:28 AM


The Tradition

Palm Beach—with the richest ZIP code in the country (33480) and a tropical rainforest climate—has always operated on a seasonal cycle that has become less pronounced these days but generally steps up after Christmas when the snowbirds arrive (the population can reach 40,000), and ends around Easter (population dropping to 9,000) when they leave for their other mansions in New York or the Hamptons or Greenwich or Newport. As the island has become home to more young families, the population is less seasonal, with older, more “ordinary” (at least in Palm Beach terms) homes at the north end of the island and the mega mansions in enclaves like Billionaire’s Row (south of Southern Boulevard but north of Sloan’s Curve) or along the ocean north of there. Children go to Palm Beach Day School, and everyone belongs to a private club. The Palm Beach B&T (Bath & Tennis) is a family favorite; the Everglades Club is the most exclusive. Charity work is very big here (as well it should be), and balls and benefits are a way of life, from the very formal Red Cross Ball to the galas for the Palm Beach Zoo, The Norton Museum, the Preservation Foundation ... and about a million more.

The Palm Beach look is studiously casual, with bright colors, a cashmere sweater loosely knotted around the neck, bare legs, white pants, Jack Rogers sandals or Stubbs & Wootton slippers. Everyone is very thin, ponytails are big, blonde is standard. Men drift toward an aging preppie look, with a little Italian tailoring thrown in for good measure. Loafers by Gucci. Despite its great wealth and legacy of privilege, there is still a small-town vibe in Palm Beach. Locals like to catch breakfast at Green’s Pharmacy, ride bikes, go to church on Sundays and shop at the same stores their parents patronized. Although Fitzgerald famously said, “Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me,” this may not be the case these days in Palm Beach. At least not on the surface.

WAYS TO EXPERIENCE PALM BEACH THAT WON’T BREAK THE BANK

• Take a walking, driving or biking tour of the island with your own private guide through Leslie Diver’s Island Living Tours (561/868-7944; islandlivingpb.com). Driving tours range from 90 minutes to 2.5 hours and include a walk through the vias on Worth Avenue. Biking tours (bikes not included—you can rent them at the Palm Beach Bicycle Trail Shop) are 90 minutes each, and are a great way to ogle the Island’s grand landmarked estates designed by the “Fab Four” of esteemed Palm Beach architects: Addison Mizner, Marion Sims Wyeth, John Volk and Maurice Fatio. • Do a little stargazing with an affordable lunch, starting with celebrity spotting at Starbucks (150 Worth Ave. in the Esplanade). Less expensive dining is also available at Pizza Al Fresco (14 Via Mizner), Piccolo Mondo (87 Via Mizner) and Echo Palm Beach (230 Sunrise Ave.). • Live it up like a pro—but at a fraction of the price—at the Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Course at 2345 S. Ocean Blvd. (561/547-0598) • Have a civilized cuppa at The Chesterfield Palm Beach’s afternoon tea, with sandwiches and scones, daily from 1 to 5 p.m. in the library and courtyard. (363 Cocoanut Row, 561/659-5800) • Window-shop on Worth Avenue (the real street of dreams) and wander through the vias for a distinctly European strolling experience. Have a glass of wine in one, buy a hat in another. Turn off your phone. Take the long way home.

TIME TRAVELING: WILD LIFE Palm Beach’s earliest pioneers discovered a region populated by black bears, wildcats and giant turtles. They killed the latter to make stew, but found that the whites of their eggs wouldn’t cook. ROAD TRIPS There was, alas, no Publix down the street. Pioneer families traveled to Titusville, by boat, 160 miles away for groceries, which hopefully didn’t spoil by the time they dropped anchor back home. To obtain lumber, it meant a 300-mile trek to Jacksonville. COCONUTTY E.M. Brelsford, the first postmaster of Palm Beach, named the town after the coconut palms that grew near Lake Worth. The trees were planted following the wreck of the Providencia, a ship from Trinidad, bound for Spain, which ran aground on Palm Beach in 1878. It carried 20,000 coconuts’ worth of cargo, which pioneers sold to locals for two and a half cents apiece.

How Palm Beach Was

THE FIRST LADIES WHO LUNCHED Palm Beach’s galas raise millions for charitable causes every season, a generosity that arguably owes its origins to the Ladies Aid Society, organized by R.B. Moore in 1888. She hosted a fundraiser to build the town’s first schoolhouse, raising $226 on sewn and embroidered articles. County officials chipped in an extra $200 to seal the deal. OH, HENRY Henry Flagler broke ground on the Royal Poinciana Hotel in 1893. It took a thousand workmen to complete what was then the largest wooden-structured hotel in the world. Not to be outdone, he would go on to build the Breakers and Whitehall, among other Palm Beach institutions. The latter came about after his third wife, Mary Lily Kenan, remarked that she wanted to live in a marble mansion. You could say she gilded him into it. DON’T ROCK THE BOAT Root canals are painful enough, but imagine enduring one in a laboratory that swayed back and forth. A pioneer dentist named Dr. F.H.

Houghton established a practice in his Palm Beach houseboat in the late 1880s. Historian Wilma Spencer states the obvious in Palm Beach: A Century of Heritage: “Although the floating office boasted every modern machine and appliance, Dr. Houghton urged patients to make appointments that coincided with calm weather.” DESIGNING MAN With so many paradisiac buildings sprouting up on an island 16 miles long, somebody had to design them. The most famous architect of this American Eden was the portly, whimsical Addison Mizner, though his arrival was inauspicious. He “came to Palm Beach from New York on a stretcher,” writes Spencer. He suffered from necrosis, constricted lungs and heart palpitations, but was able to convalesce in the calm Florida climate. When Mizner descended on the island, he was not only penniless but $6,000 in debt. He turned his fortunes around by placing his signature goulash of influences on countless Palm Beach edifices.

his style as “Spanish-MoorishRomanesque-Gothic-Renaissance-Bull Market-Damn the Expense.” The results were sometimes as eccentric as he was. He completed one villa without a bathroom, built another with an outdoor staircase that led to nowhere, and finished another without a staircase between the first and second floors. THE WINTER WHITE HOUSE In the early 1930s, bootlegger Joseph P. Kennedy purchased the Palm Beach manse La Guerida for $115,000, about a third of its market value. It would become the Kennedy compound for generations, a place where both Joseph and his son John would indulge their sexual dalliances— Joseph with film starlet Gloria Swanson, and John, much later, with a roster of mistresses that was rumored to be in the hundreds. Only when he was convalescing from back surgery, in the mid1950s, did JFK keep his libido in check. While recuperating at La Guerida, his wife arranged for mutual friend Grace Kelly to show up in a sexy nurse outfit and administer a feeding. John didn’t even notice her. As Murray Weiss and Bill Hoffman report it in Palm Beach Babylon, Kelly lamented, “I must be losing it.”

LO CAL COL OR El Solano

In Like Flynt

‘Imagine’ That

Residents were more accepting of El Salano’s next renter, John Lennon. The rock icon, Yoko Ono and their children stayed in the mansion in 1980, where he reportedly strolled the property in T-shirts and cutoff shorts, strumming his guitar and noodling with new songs. He rarely strayed outside the residence, though he was initially turned away from brunch at The Breakers because he wasn’t wearing a tie. He planned on buying the property, a venture that was cut short, along with his life, in December 1980. After his assassination, more than 100 fans gathered at El Salano for a vigil that included oceanside Beatles sing-alongs.

80

El Salano

That’s One Pricy Sponge Cake

A customer at Ta-boo once offered a waiter $500 to supply Twinkies in 30 minutes. The waiter scrambled to a market, bought the snack cakes and served them on a plate with raspberry sauce and whipped cream. The customer tipped $175 on a $600 bill.

An Inconvenient Death

When resident Frank Lahainer, an Italian count and real-estate tycoon, died from leukemia at age 90, in March of 1995, his 57-year-old wife Gianna inherited his $300 million fortune. The timing of her husband’s passing was inconvenient, however: Palm Beach was still in the midst of its social season, and the widowed Lahainer didn’t want to miss any of it. So she postponed the funeral and had her husband embalmed and stored at the Quattlebaum-Holleman Funeral Home for 40 days, during which time she partied on a yacht with Ivana Trump, among other diversions. “Three days after he left,” writes journalist Ronald Kessler in The Season, “she threw a party at the Biltmore with beluga caviar and Dom Perignon Champagne.”

Dressed For Transgress

The late Neil Cargile was one of the most colorful characters in the annals of Palm Beach. A recreational airline pilot profiled by The New Yorker, he dressed in flamboyant women’s clothes and called himself “SheNeil,” though his masculine voice and demeanor gave residents no illusions about his gender. Once, when police pulled him over for drunk driving, he insisted he was being singled out because of his red sequined minidress.

We Hope She Was Insured

Every parking lot in Palm Beach is its own luxury car show, so it pays to be extra cautious when you’re behind the wheel. When an elderly driver lost control of her car in the parking lot of the Palm Beach Publix, she hit a Rolls-Royce, a Mercedes, a Porsche, a Cadillac and … an Isuzu pickup truck.

Brownie McLean, the now nearly 100-yearold dowager duchess of Palm Beach, shocked neighbors when she rented her mansion El Salano to porn publisher Larry Flynt in the late 1970s. (He concealed his business under the benign moniker H & F Realty, which stood for “Hustler & Flynt.”) Locals discovered his presence after they noticed the island’s private mansions turning up in Hustler photo shoots. Responding to the outrage, Flynt was quoted as saying, “I’m not here because I’m looking to get accepted by a group of pompous, unimportant people.” Nonetheless, his publication enjoyed a local boost in sales. According to a clerk at the nowdefunct Main Street News, “every little old lady” bought the magazine.

A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE Not everything in Palm Beach is man-made; there are a few ways to dip into the island’s natural world, too.

p The municipal beach at the foot of Worth Avenue offers Caribbean-blue waters and broad beaches for sunbathing, paddleboarding and snorkeling. Up the beach just off The Breakers is one of South Florida’s most popular dive spots— The Breakers Reef—which is two miles long and teeming with sea life, from corals, sponges and tropical fish to moray eels and even the occasional whale shark.

u The Four Arts Botanical Gardens (2 Four Arts Plaza, Palm Beach) date to 1938, with seven gardens illustrating the special plants and landscape design best suited for a subtropical climate; the adjacent Philip Hulitar Sculpture Garden adds art to the mix in an outdoor museum-like setting.

82

ROBERT STEVENS

p Those exotic squawkers wheeling overhead are wild quaker parrots that lend Palm Beach—and most of South Florida—its special tropical charm. In fact, Palm Beach is home to all kinds of wildlife, from its many seabirds like terns and ospreys and wading birds like blue herons to what swims offshore.

The museum also offers a year-round schedule of special exhibitions. Free public tours are available, and private group tours may be arranged. Tours offer the opportunity to wander through the museum’s exhibits or follow a guide through the Museum Collection or special selected exhibitions.

Suzi Goldsmith

This year, the Association’s charitable donations have gone to the dogs. BY NILA DO SIMON

W

hen Suzi Goldsmith, executive director of Tri-County Animal Rescue, was notified her organization would be the upcoming beneficiary of Worth Avenue Association’s Historical Walking Tour of Worth Avenue, she jumped for joy. Literally. “I started screaming so loud that all four dogs in my office started howling with me,” she says of the reactions from the two poodles, Irish wolfhound and Great Pyrenees. Knowing Goldsmith and the animal rescue’s history, it’s understandable how she could be flooded with emotions. Twenty years ago, Goldsmith set out on a mission to create a no-kill shelter to care for animals until a loving home adopted them. Where some local shelters have a euthanizing policy because of budgetary constraints, there is no situation in which Tri-County will euthanize a healthy animal. To date, more than 50,000 cats and dogs in the tri-county area have been saved from being euthanized. “We have no boundaries,” Goldsmith says. “If somebody in the Bahamas, Istanbul or anywhere else needs help, we help them. Once, we drove 13 hours to Alabama to a puppy mill to receive 60 puppies. Those dogs had never been out of chicken coops before. One puppy had never had its feet on grass.” With no government assistance, Tri-County Animal Rescue relies solely on donations to safely keep the more than 400 animals currently held in the Boca Raton shelter. Goldsmith says approximately 94 percent of her current donations come from Palm Beach residents. The shelter’s association with Worth Avenue isn’t a new one. As a regular participant in the Avenue’s annual pet parade,

112

dogs and cats from the shelter are brought to the event for potential adoption. A 6-month-old terrier, Cuddles, was even adopted, thanks to the help of Association board member Gregg Beletsky. A longtime patron of the shops on Worth Avenue, Goldsmith (a Manalapan resident) is familiar with the generosity of the Association members and their clients. So it came as no surprise when in 2012 the Worth Avenue Association decided to donate all net proceeds of its weekly walking tours to different local charities each year. The beloved tour, which for years has showcased the history and unique architecture of the area, has donated significant sums to the designated charity each year. Past recipients have included Forever Family, Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Els for Autism Foundation and Palm Beach Zoo. “It’s such a wonderful feeling to give back,” says Marley Herring, the current president of the Worth Avenue Association. “Palm Beach is very pet-friendly, and we’re so pleased to be associated with a wonderful charity that does good work.” The walking tours aren’t the only ways the Association is contributing to the community. Beach cleanups and annual food drives have also kept the Association’s philanthropic arm active and far-reaching. For Goldsmith, the connection to the Worth Avenue Association is something she says will make a difference at Tri-County. The monies received will benefit the shelter’s medical fund, which pays for animals that have health issues such as cataracts and broken bones. “We are just over the moon about being connected to the Avenue,” she says. “I love every shop on the Avenue, and now it’s great to be connected in this charitable way.”
