LETTER from the PUBLISHER

COMING TO THE NORTH SHORE!

Summertime and the living is easy. Whether you’re spending it in the Hamptons or on the North Shore, it’s also the perfect time of year to focus on wellness, living well and healthier lifestyles. Who better than to show us the art of living well than Michael and Steven Dubb of the Beechwood Organization, developers of lifestyle communities such as Bishop’s Pond in Southampton and Westbury’s Meadowbrooke Pointe, with 720 condominiums, town homes and duplexes and a stellar 25,000 square foot clubhouse on the former site of Roosevelt Raceway. And, in our Designer Spaces column, we meet Mabley Handler, the dynamic Hamptons interior design duo who outfitted the heavenly models at Bishop’s Pond. Luxury homeowners, as one of our feature stories reports, are trendsetters when it comes to eco-friendly living, leading the way to more energy efficient homes by incorporating the most cutting-edge technologies. High- end builders outfit custom mansions with geothermal heating and cooling systems, high-performance windows with triple panes of glass, tankless water heaters, foam insulation and, of course, smart home features that let you adjust the air conditioning or dim the lights from a smart phone. It’s not just the food we cook that makes a healthy kitchen. From oilfree fryers to ultimate juicers to touchless faucets and steam ovens, a wide range of new appliances and utensils are designed for today’s wellness-centric lifestyle. Being organized also can lead to a healthier lifestyle and our story on how to declutter your surroundings can help. By getting rid of unnecessary disorder (for example, with the help of a fabulous custom closet,) taking control and getting back your living space, you can bring newfound order and serenity to your life. What better place to rev up your new focus on wellness than at the beach. In the Hamptons, riding the waves is no longer reserved for surfer dudes. Families literally are now on board together, surfing and paddle boarding on the East End. A “hard” day at the beach builds up one’s appetite. We take look at some of the Hamptons’ old favorites, as well as new restaurants debuting this summer. And for those who enjoy dining alfresco, some of our favorite North Shore restaurants provide the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while sipping a cocktail or dining, even if it’s on the parking lot. Enjoy the summer. And happy reading.

BUILDER SHOWCASE

THE BEECHWOOD ORGANIZATION CREATING COMMUNITIES AND LIFESTYLE By M.C. SUSSMAN

In February, the developers received zoning approval for The Portofino, a luxury hotel and apartment complex with 195 units that will be located on the west side of Meadowbrook Pointe in Westbury. With rents ranging from the high $2000s to $5000 a month, tenants will have access to the hotel’s amenities, such as valet parking, concierge service, a pool, fitness center and a spa.

L.TO R. STEVEN AND MICHAEL DUBB IN THE 25,000 SQUARE FOOT CLUBHOUSE AT MEADOWBROOK POINTE.

For Michael and Steven Dubb, owners of the Jericho-based Beechwood Organization, building a home is about more than four walls and a bit of trim. The father and son developers, along with partner and chief operating officer Richard Rosenberg, created lifestyle communities like Meadowbrook Pointe in Westbury, Bishop’s Pond in Southampton and Medford’s Meadowbrook Pointe Links & Spa by the Mill Pond Golf Course. 14 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

“We’re not just selling a house but a lifestyle,” says Steven Dubb, 28. Besides stylish condominium apartments and townhomes, each community boasts a clubhouse and a galaxy of amenities. “We look at it as building a better mousetrap,” Steven adds. “We want to create communities and lifestyles that people want to have.” With 60 communities and 6,000 homes across New York, the Beechwood Orga-

nization is a leading builder on Long Island and ranks among the forefront of privately owned residential homebuilders nationwide. Among their burgeoning developments is Country Pointe at North Bellmore, a neighborhood of 79 four to five bedroom single family homes with optional first f loor master suites in the Chelsea model, full basements and two car garages. Forty percent of the homes are presold.

Arvene by the Sea, a 2300 home oceanfront community in the Rockaways, was designed with walking paths, pocket parks and beachfront preserves. Though it won’t be complete for three to four years, the “smart growth” community is close to a subway line and is revitalizing the neighborhood with a new YMCA and a Stop & Shop. Its final Main Street section will include retail shops with apartments above. “It could be like Ven-

ice Beach in California or Miami Beach, says Michael Dubb, 58. “It could be a jewel for New York City.” In February, the developers received zoning approval for The Portofino, a luxury hotel and apartment complex with 195 units that will be located to the west side of Meadowbrook Pointe in Westbury. With rents ranging from the high $2000s to $5000 a month, tenants will have access to the hotel‘s amenities such as valet parking, concierge service, a pool, fitness center and a spa. The Beechwood Organization also is awaiting a decision from the Town of Oyster Bay on its application to develop Country Pointe at Plainview, potentially its newest lifestyle community on Long Island, across a 143-acre site straddling the hamlets of Plainview and Old Bethpage. The community would include new homes, new retail facilities and a commitment to recreational open space, Michael Dubb says. While lifestyle communities have been developed in other parts of the country for decades, Michael explains, the options on Long Island were limited before Meadowbrook Pointe in Westbury opened in 2006.

“The idea of building it here is to keep people on Long Island and find communities similar to what they would find in Florida or North Carolina.” The Dubbs expect the last 30 of Meadowbrook Pointe’s 720 condominiums, town-homes and duplexes to be sold by year’s end and be built out not long after. Homes range from the $600,000s to $1.2 million. The ages 48+ active adult community, built on 51 acres of the former Roosevelt Raceway, is so successful residents “actually move back from Florida to be near their families,” Michael says. “Meadowbrook Pointe brought people back home.” It has also enticed those who raised their families, paid their taxes and wanted to stay on Long Island, without have to worry about having the grass cut or the oil burner fixed. Its 25,000 square foot clubhouse is “the focal point of the community,” Michael says. It boasts a fitness center, salon, spa, theater, card room, billiards room, sports lounge and bar, golf simulator, ballroom, library, business center and cafe. “It revitalizes people’s lives,” he says, with newfound friends and suddenly active so-

cial lives. When designing their homes, the Dubbs keep in mind what buyers want: Open floor plans are in vogue, with less carpeting and more wood floors, crown moldings and other trim, volume and nine foot ceilings. Buyers, particularly those over 55, want master bedrooms on the first floor. At Bishop’s Pond, Steven says, buyers prefer Carrara or Vermont white marble countertops, high end porcelain tile for “really cool looks that you can’t get with marble.” Caesarstone composite countertops, tile backslashes and stainless steel appliances also are in demand. Bathrooms have antique metal vanities with stone countertops, oversized showers and stylish freestanding bathtubs. Michael Dubb parlayed pushing a lawn mower at age 12 into a landscaping business and work in condominium management. In his twenties, working alongside builder clients, he became captivated with construction related problems and how to solve them. When one builder’s job wasn’t up to snuff, Michael alerted the bank so they wouldn’t get hurt. In return, he recalled, the bank promised to partner with him on developing a piece of land. That opportunity came in 1985

when Michael built 18 single family homes on 6000 square foot lots in East Meadow. Buoyed by that success, he went on to build Spruce Pond, a community of 69 half million dollar condominiums in North Hills. “That was very successful,” Michael says. He went on to build hundreds of units of affordable housing in the Williamsburg and Bushwick sections of Brooklyn, as well as homes and communities in Great Neck, Oceanside, Brookville and New Hyde Park. Since Steven joined his father at Beechwood five years ago, he’s worked on every project in different capacities, from financing and design to sales. At Bishop’s Pond, Steven secured approvals, designed homes and created a sales strategy that included selling 25 homes a year. Instead, the younger Dubb, who studied Studio Art and Real Estate at New York University and previously worked as an analyst at Credit Suisse, “hit a grand slam.” Fifty-five of Bishop’s Ponds 69 homes sold in the first year -- even before the clubhouse was complete -- and for “much higher prices” than anticipated. Steven humbly put it this way: “We got lucky with the timing and the market.” SE SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY 15

ven the most well-organized among us can hardly claim to have a clutter-free life. Whether it’s that pile of mail on the kitchen island, or your son’s backpack on the stairs, most of us fall victim to the pattern of leaving stuff around rather than putting it back where it belongs. The problem is those little piles of paper, unopened mail, and clothes tend to pile up in strategic places that become clutter zones. Before you know it, you are pushing the papers to the side so you can prepare dinner. Or you find yourself stepping over the magazines to get into bed. “The average person loses 4.3 hours a week from being disorganized. That’s six weeks a year,” says Laura Savino, a professional organizer whose company Task Management Solutions is based in Amityville. Fifty percent of lost time is due to sloppy desks and failure to file. The other fifty percent is due to procrastination. “A lot of people are embarrassed to admit they have a paper phobia, but it’s more common than you think,” she said, adding that for more than a decade, one Nassau executive has been sending her a shoebox filled with mail for her to sort. He pays her $55 an hour. Savino says, “I have several wealthy clients who have destroyed their credit rating because they can’t face their mail.” Dr. De Clutter, as Savino refers to herself, has been putting things in their correct places ever since she was eight years old. “I got my organizational genes from my grandmother, the queen of refrigerators. She taught me how to alphabetize the salad dressings and put them next to each other,” she says, adding, “All my Italians are in the fridge door.” Although it is rare to find someone who alphabetizes her spices and keeps lipsticks, color coded, in the butter compartment of the fridge, Savino gently guides each client through the process of making a decision about whether to keep, donate, or save each item. Roberta Schill, an attorney in Dix Hills, says that Savino helped her to heal her relationship with excess paper. Dr. De Clutter would hold up each piece of paper and ask Schill, “What does it represent?” In taking the time to think about the purpose of each piece of paper, Schill recognized that she was attached to an old belief about herself. “These papers reinforced my image of myself as a successful person. Having achieved my career goals, I now know I can let go of the paper, “ she says, adding, “I am already successful.” A specialist in the psychology of clutter, Ms. Savino sees that as a breakthrough. She says, “Roberta is unique in that she likes to get to the emotions underlying her issues.” The idea a cluttered home creates stress is widely accepted by professional organizers, behavioral health experts, and architects. Conversely, an uncluttered home or office opens up functional space while creating a more peaceful ambience. Sarha Robinson,

Director of Serenity Zone in Long Beach and a licensed social worker, defines “clutter” as “anything we don’t need, want, or use that takes our time, energy, space and serenity.” She explains it this way: “Clutter can trigger negative emotions and contribute to self-sabotage.” For example, when you walk into a messy, disorganized space, your shoulders and facial muscles instinctively tense up. The instinct to protect yourself from feeling stressed may cause you to step back or move away from the mess. If it happens to be your mess, that can lead to avoidance and procrastination, which, in turn, lead to more clutter. “Clutter takes away from your ability to experience true serenity and achieve inner peace,” Sharha says. The ancient Chinese art of feng shui aims at organizing a space so “it clears your mind and calms the soul,” according to Feng Shui Master Ronald Chin who is a licensed architect in Manhattan. Soon after his father died in 1991, Chin realized there was something more to his field than traditional design. “Feng shui shows us how to stay balanced despite the chaos in the world. In creating a more peaceful home, we are able to clear the clutter in our minds,” he says. An uncluttered space also communicates a sense of abundance and helps to attract prosperity. Reachable at www.rdchin.com, Chin offers on-site consultations or you can incorporate feng shui elements in your space. If your home office is in the bedroom, move it to the living room. The bedroom has yin, feminine energy, while the living room is more masculine/yang. Place a mirror near the stovetop burners. The reflection doubles the fire, which means twice as much prosperity. Or paint one wall with Benjamin Moore’s “Million Dollar Red.” Chin says, “We need to think of feng shui as a tool to become more aware of our surroundings and how they affect us.” Taking stock of your possessions is the first step in figuring out how to master clutter instead of allowing it to dominate your life. Linda Galanis, President of Gold Coast Organizing (www.goldcoastorganizing.com) in Garden City says, “When you come home, it’s the place where you escape your stress from work and the outside world. You should come in and relax and get done what you need to get done.” If you have to waste time looking for your cell phone or you trip over a pile of clothes left on the stairs, that creates additional stress you do not need. Kathryn Wankel, a bicoastal executive coach, hired Linda to organize her attic. It has helped her business grow. “When my things are in order, I feel in control and can travel on a dime.” Linda observes, “It’s human nature to accumulate things. Now we buy more stuff than ever before. Whether it’s a mansion or apartment, we need to make time to organize our possessions for a more peaceful home.” SE

Design by California Closets

DON’T BE OVERWHELMED BY CLUTTER If you practically get a concussion every time you open a closet door, your clutter is winning. Now is the time to conquer clutter before it conquers you. Here are some strategic tips from California Closets: DON’TS

1. Get emotionally attached. One of the primary causes of closet clutter is feeling sentimental about things you no longer use. Put your feelings in a journal and stick that stuff into a plastic garbage bag. You can go through it later.

3. Spend more than 5 minutes looking for something in your closet. If it takes longer than that to find what you need, it’s time to remove everything from the racks and the shelves so you can sort through it, throw out what you no longer use, and reorganize the space.

2. Pile your shoes and shoehorns on the closet floor. If you have to bend over double to find your favorite sneakers, you are probably throwing unwanted shoes and shoehorns onto the floor near where you are standing. It is all too easy to trip. Do you really want to tell the EMT crew that you slipped on a shoehorn? Line up the shoes that you wear most frequently so they are easiest to reach. Use the shoehorns or put them in that plastic garbage bag (see item #1).

4. Put things you use regularly on back shelves. Before putting something away, ask yourself, “How often do I use this?” If the answer is “almost every day” or “once a week” put it in the front row so you don’t have to think about where it is when you need it.

26 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

5. Stuff underwear and socks into drawers. Even though you might be the only one who looks there, a crumpled mass of clothing is a recipe for frustration. Take a few minutes to fold each item before putting it away. In the end, it will save time and energy.

DO’S

1. Take stock of each closet. Ask yourself, “Which one will free up the most usable space once it is cleaned out and reorganized?” Tackle that one first. 2. Remove each item from the closet and put it into one of three piles marked “Now,” “Never,” and “Someday.” The “Now” pile is for items you are now wearing or using. The “Never” pile is for those things you no longer need. The “Someday” pile is for those things about which you are undecided; like that pair of last year’s Manolos, which caused you to twist an ankle at your cousin’s wedding. 3. Rename the “Someday” pile as the “Wishful Thinking” pile. Review each item and decide whether it belongs in the “Now” or “Never” pile.

4. Put the “Never” and “Wishful Thinking” bags into your attic, garage, or basement. When you revisit them in a month, you will be surprised at how many things you are ready to throw out or give away. 5. In the meantime, organize your “Now” items according to seasonal use. Put the current season’s items on shelves and racks where they are easily accessible. Organize them according to their functionality. Keep all the jackets in one section, organized by weight or color. Put trousers and jeans in separate sections, organized by color. Ditto for shirts and/or blouses. And don’t forget to line up those boots, shoes, sneakers, and sandals! SE -- LAURIE NADEL

LUXURY HOMES t LEAD THE WAY By M.C. SUSSMAN

hese days it’s chic to incorporate the most cutting-edge technologies to run the manse home efficiently with deep-pocketed homeowners leading the way to greener homes. From geothermal heating and cooling systems to high performance windows with triple panes of glass to tankless water heaters, solar panels and foam insulation, custom mansions are being outfitted with the best insulating technologies, alternative energy sources and eco-friendly features. As a result,

One of the simplest way to run your home more efficiently is by using certified Energy Star-rated appliances. These energy efficient products lower utility costs, makes your home more comfortable and helps stem climate change.

these top-of-the line homes are more durable and energy efficient as well as luxurious, not just because of lower utility and maintenance costs but because they can control their energy destiny and, for many, it’s the right thing to do. Marc Spector, an architect and owner of the Spector Group, said his design build firm, “always likes to propose geothermal to the client.” Despite upfront costs that are two to three times as expensive as a conventional heating and cooling system, geothermal pays off in about five years. The Spector group has successfully installed geothermal systems in homes from 5500 to 15,000 square feet in Old Westbury, Kings Point, the Hamptons and the South Shore, as well as in schools and office buildings.

While the outdoor temperature fluctuates with the changing seasons, underground temperatures remain relatively constant year-round. Geothermal systems capitalize on those steady subterranean temperatures and use a buried system of pipes known as an earth loop and an indoor handling unit to provide “free energy” and savings “up to 70 percent on utility bills over using oil,” Marc explained. Going geothermal also eliminates issues with fumes or carbon monoxide associated with burning natural gas or other polluting fossil fuels. “There are so many secondary and tertiary benefits especially when dealing with a really large home,” Marc added. Geothermal is well suited for use with radiant floors, heating swimming pools and hot water, and for powering heat pads that de-ice driveways, eliminating the need to shovel and salt. “If you have geothermal, you have unlimited capacity to tap into,” Marc said. “It is happening more, and more.” According to a Green Home Builders and Remodelers by McGraw-Hill Construction and the National Association of Home Builders, green homes are expected to comprise between 29 and 38 percent of the market by 2016, up from 17 percent in 2011. Spending on eco-friendly home technologies such as energy efficient windows, solar panels, geothermal heating and cooling and foam insulation will zoom from $17 billion three years ago to $87 billion to $114 billion by 2016. Green home remodeling will show even greater gains. Smart home technology is also part of the efficiency equation, for convenience as well as energy savings. Remotely controlled by iPhones and iPads, home automation systems can turn off the lights, turn up the pool temperature, close the shades, text you if there’s a break- in and remotely run entertainment systems. Smartphones can check  on what’s in the fridge while you’re at the supermarket,  run a robot vacuum cleaner and remotely unlock doors.  Home monitoring videos let you know what your puppy is up to while you’re at the office, and mobile alerts detect loud noise as well as motion. New refrigerators are smartwired to dispense hot water and tell you when it’s time to buy milk.  Even the toilet seat can be set to warm up 10 minutes before your wake-up alarm goes off. One of the simplest way to run your home more efficiently is by using certified Energy Star-rated appliances. These energy efficient products lower utility costs, makes your home more comfortable and helps stem climate change.

Another trick is to use motorized screens by phantomscreens.com that appear at the touch of a button and retract when not needed. Depending on the selected mesh type, the retractable screens -- which come in a variety of colors to match exterior or interior finishes -- also help reduce air conditioning costs. The screens come in a variety of colors to match exterior or interior finishes. Energy efficient light bulbs, dimmers, motion sensors and automatic daylight shut off sensors also help reduce a home’s carbon footprint. Compact fluorescent lightbulbs use far less energy than the old incandescent bulbs. In older homes, sealing air leaks and adding insulation improves energy efficiency and can make it feel more comfortable. Install insulation in the attic and basement, put weather stripping on doors and caulk around windows to save more than 10 percent on annual heating and cooling costs. According to air conditioning manufacturer rheem.com, the best air conditioning systems use minimal electricity. While an air conditioner that’s too small won’t keep your home cool enough, a system that’s too large will turn on and off, cycling too often and wasting energy. Air conditioning equipment is rated for efficiency using a SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit.

these top-of-the line homes are more durable and energy efficient as well as luxurious, not just because of lower utility and maintenance costs but because they can control their energy destiny and, for many, it’s the right thing to do. Marc Spector, an architect and owner of the Spector Group, said his design build firm, “always likes to propose geothermal to the client.” Despite upfront costs that are two to three times as expensive as a conventional heating and cooling system, geothermal pays off in about five years. The Spector group has successfully installed geothermal systems in homes from 5500 to 15,000 square feet in Old Westbury, Kings Point, the Hamptons and the South Shore, as well as in schools and office buildings.

Such pricey better timepieces, also including Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin, are “assembled by hand,” and “very complicated,” Matt explains. Each better brand has its own cachet.

Moreover, owning a good watch is “like owning a piece of art,” Matt explains. “It’s not just the aesthetic; it’s what’s inside and what goes into making them.” High- end watches start at $20,000 and for top brands like Patek Philippe, can reach seven figures.

Watches, after all, make a statement. They exude power and prestige, convey status and evoke images of sophistication or casual elegance.

“You can’t wear a Ferrari into a meeting, but you can wear your Patek Philippe,” says Matt Gross, a pre-owned fine watch specialist and a vice president at H.L. Gross & Bro. Jewelers, the landmark fine jewelry emporium on Garden City’s Franklin Avenue.

Rolex is the king of watches. The hot model of the moment is the Rolex Daytona, a sporty high performance $75,000 wrist piece originally designed for professional race drivers. Women, too, are into wearing larger watches, including men’s sports watches over 40mm. “They are in style,” Matt says.

T

With few true watchmakers left -- their average age is over 60 years old and most are in Switzerland -high end watches are gaining even greater cachet.

Some men and women collect expensive pre-owned watches —often in the $50,000 to $60,000 range — simply because they enjoy wearing them.

Some men and women collect expensive preowned watches -- often in the $50,000 to $60,000 range -- simply because they enjoy wearing them.

All the rage this summer is the new Rolex 2014 Yachtmaster II with a blue bezel, white face and $18,750 price tag. Rolex watches with diamond bezels remain popular with women; men opt for watches fashioned from rare metals, with ceramic cases and bracelets finished with a PVD coating, which gives stainless steel a black appearance.

Full Steam (& Convection) Ahead Health conscious culinary enthusiasts are turning to fast and efficient steam and convections ovens that let you defrost, steam, proof, bake, slow cook and reheat. Food cooked with steam tastes better and loses fewer vitamins and minerals and there’s no need to use unhealthy oils or fats. And reheating with steam retains moisture, texture and flavor. With a Professional Series Built-in Thermador Steam and Convection stainless steel oven, leftovers may even taste better than when they were first cooked. Combined with convection, food cooks faster and more evenly -- a 14 pound turkey can be golden on the outside and moist on the inside in a mere 90 minutes. Thermador Professional Series Built-In Steam and Convection Oven, $3,999 www.thermador.com

Ultimate Smoothie Maker Vitamix These days, you need a great mixer to blend healthy strawberry-banana-pineapple or kale-apple-kiwi smoothies for a healthy pre- or post-workout boost.

A healthy kitchen means more than stocking the fridge with fresh fruits and veggies. It’s also about having the appliances and tools to make healthy cooking and eating easy. Cutting down on germs, striving for greater energy efficiency and being eco-friendly also contribute to happiness and well-being.

Healthy Potato Chips Potato chips don’t have to be greasy or fried to be crisp and yummy. Start by slicing potatoes with the mandoline slicer that comes with this microwave potato chip cooker’s patented silicone trays. Arrange the slices on the cooking trays, and insert into a microwave. The special trays create convection heat, producing grease-free cooked chips in minutes. Can’t eat just one? The trays can be stacked three high to cook multiple servings at a time. Flavor the chips with seasonings like sour cream and onion, barbecue or salt and vinegar, available separately. Or use the same trays to make sweet potato, carrot, beets, apple or banana chips. Microwavable Potato Chip Maker $59.95

Cutting It Clean The debate rages over which is safer: a wood cutting board (if its bamboo, may have natural anti-germ properties) or a durable plastic version? Save the trees. This durable polypropylene, 16” by 12” cutting board from Williams-Sonoma was designed to inhibit bacterial growth. It’s dishwasher safe and meets the safety standards required for professional kitchens. The flat side is for chopping and has enough give to protect a knife blade’s sharp edge. Flip it over and the carving surface has a perimeter well for collecting juices. Indented handles make it easier to lift. Williams Sonoma Cutting Board $24.95 williams-sonoma.com

Steamed Lobster, Mmmm Steaming is a healthy way to cook. Whether you are steaming fish, lobster, corn on the cob or a head of broccoli, the Hamilton Beach 37537 Food Steamer steams foods to perfection. The two- tier food steamer has a removable divider and a digital touchpad and is designed with cooking options that let you prepare bigger and smaller foods simultaneously. Eggs, whether you want them soft or hard boiled, can be cooked upright. A bowl makes steaming rice or smaller food items easy. When the food is steamed and ready, the digital food steamer automatically switches to warm mode to keep it hot and fresh until it’s time to eat. Hamilton Beach Digital Food Steamer 37537 $34 walmart.com

Oilless Fried Chicken Remember the bygone times when deep frying chicken nuggets in a bucket of oil practically guaranteed a scrumptious treat for the kiddies, with nary a worry about nasty fats, cholesterol or other health ramifications? These days, we know better. Fortunately, it’s now possible to fry chicken wings, spring rolls or French fries without any oil yet still produce that same crunchy exterior while the insides remain delectably moist. The Hammacher Oilless Fryer has an infrared heating element that heats up to 400-degrees Fahrenheit. Its internal fan circulates dry, hot air to cook fried food to a golden brown with 80 percent less fat than the traditional deep-fried method. The oilless fryer comes with a stainless steel cooking basket with a removable divider so different food items can cook separately. Equipped with a 60 minute timer, it can cook up to four cups of fries at a time. Hammacher Oilless Fryer $249.95 hammacher.com

Water Bottle Chic Plastic water bottles are definitely passé. The fashionable little bkr glass water bottle is a healthy must have. The luxe glass bottle come with silicone sleeves in limited edition shades like Rex, a light bright purple, Bambi hot pink and Pixie lime, with themes based on the latest New York, Paris, London and Milan fashions. They fit most cup holders and are BPA-free, Phthalate free and 100 percent reusable and recyclable.     bkr the bottle 16-oz. bottle, $30 www.mybkr.com

Lots of Juice Forget store bought bottles and containers of juice. It’s healthier to squeeze your own, fresh from oranges, grapefruit or even pomegranate. The Hammacher Commercial Juicer is the trophy in its category, with the ability to squeeze up to 28 oranges a minute, making up to 84 oz. of fresh fruit juice. And don’t scoff at the bitter pith and pulp -- a filter takes care of that. Happy juicing! Hammacher Commercial Juicer $9900 Hammacher.com

Magic Kitchen Faucet Abra cadrabra. Wave your hand -- or a cup or pan or spoon or other kitchen utensil --- to make Kohler’s Sensate Touchless Kitchen Faucet turn on or off. Its special technology and state-of-the-art sensor on the underside of the spout helps eliminate mess, stems the spread of germs throughout the kitchen and makes prep, cooking and cleaning faster. And you can easily adjust the water temperature, switch from stream to spray, and adjust the flow when switching to other tasks. Kohler Sensate Touchless Kitchen Faucet Starting at $675 Kohler.com

Pretty Compost Pail Tossing pounds of food scraps a month down the disposal or into the garbage is not just wasteful, it’s like ignoring an organic treasure chest. Instead, without worrying about distinctive scents, you can keep the discards in a sweet brushed stainless steel countertop canister until you transfer them to your outdoor compost bin.

Moreover, owning a good watch is “like owning a piece of art,” Matt explains. “It’s not just the aesthetic; it’s what’s inside and what goes into making them.” High- end watches start at $20,000 and for top brands like Patek Philippe, can reach seven figures.

Watches, after all, make a statement. They exude power and prestige, convey status and evoke images of sophistication or casual elegance.

“You can’t wear a Ferrari into a meeting, but you can wear your Patek Philippe,” says Matt Gross, a pre-owned fine watch specialist and a vice president at H.L. Gross & Bro. Jewelers, the landmark fine jewelry emporium on Garden City’s Franklin Avenue.

Rolex is the king of watches. The hot model of the moment is the Rolex Daytona, a sporty high performance $75,000 wrist piece originally designed for professional race drivers. Women, too, are into wearing larger watches, including men’s sports watches over 40mm. “They are in style,” Matt says.

With few true watchmakers left -- their average age is over 60 years old and most are in Switzerland -high end watches are gaining even greater cachet.

Some men and women collect expensive pre-owned watches —often in the $50,000 to $60,000 range — simply because they enjoy wearing them.

Some men and women collect expensive preowned watches -- often in the $50,000 to $60,000 range -- simply because they enjoy wearing them.

All the rage this summer is the new Rolex 2014 Yachtmaster II with a blue bezel, white face and $18,750 price tag. Rolex watches with diamond bezels remain popular with women; men opt for watches fashioned from rare metals, with ceramic cases and bracelets finished with a PVD coating, which gives stainless steel a black appearance.

Gas guzzlers begone. Urban mobility is being redefined and hybrid electric vehicles are raising the bar. Sustainable, emission free driving is in vogue and setting new standards for future mobility. To meet the demand for environmentally friendly high end automobiles, auto makers like Porsche, BMW and Mercedes have luxury hybrid and electric plug in cars. Among techies and others on the cutting edge, the all-electric Tesla Model S is a status symbol. At $135,925, the new futuristic-looking 2015 electric BMW i8 is a turbocharged, high performance modern and sustainable sports coupe with wide opening scissor doors, hi-tech exterior lighting and a radiator exhaust in the middle of the hood. It oozes sex appeal yet has the consumption and emissions footprint of a compact car. The attractive plug-in hybrid combines BMW eDrive technology and a BMW TwinPower Turbo 1.5 litre, 3-cylinder gas engine, resulting in an A+ driving experience. With 360 horsepower and 420 pounds per foot of torque, it can zip from zero to 60 in 4.3 seconds. Its electric motor and combustion engines are perfectly synchronized and its aerodynamic design boosts its efficiency. The result is a topnotch driving experience and with a BMW iWallbox wall-mounted home charging station a “full tank” every morning. It’s also getting easier to charge on the move at increasing numbers of public charging stations in urban areas to top off the battery.

at home with CORI GOLDFARB

BY CARA S. TRAGER

42 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

Cori Goldfarb’s Roslyn spa Truth + Beauty says a lot about her. In all she does — in her spa and jewelry business, personal appearance, family life and home, Cori brings her aesthetic sensibilities and signature authenticity. Although she steadfastly remains mum about clients and their treatments — even when they approach her in social settings— Cori is unabashedly candid about the steps she has taken to feel good about herself — physically and psychologically. Various cosmetic treatments, including eye lifts and Botox injections, provided her with a natural-looking flawless visage while regular workouts keep the petite entrepreneur trim and fit. And since Cori and her husband, Sandy, married 20 years ago and she became a stepmother to his daughter Heather, now 26, psychotherapy

enabled Cori to become the best possible stepmother, mother and wife. Cori, 46, and, Sandy, 56, are also the parents of three other daughters, Brooke, 18, Paige, 15, and Remi, 14. “I love psychotherapy,” volunteers Cori. “It teaches me not to judge and criticize, but to validate their feelings.” For 17 years, the Goldfarbs lived in a stately, 6,000-square-foot, six-bedroom, 9-bathroom center-hall colonial in Old Westbury. An in-ground swimming pool, cabana and tennis court round out the luxurious picture. “It’s like a country club,” she says in her inimitable down-to-earth way. In many ways, the house — and the way she has fashioned it — exemplifies her personality — stylish, sunny and genuine. The interior is a sunlit refuge, dotted

with fine English antique furnishings yet, the ambiance is devoid of stuffiness or pretense. In the living room and the den, ever-so-comfortable seating pieces — in brown, muted green and ivory-colored fabrics — are accessorized with pillows adding a touch of pizzazz to the inviting settings. “I call it comfy, cozy, lived-in and warm with a good flow,” says Cori in describing how she would like her home to be perceived. An interior designer, she said, guided her towards items that “would hold up” to everyday family life while satisfying Cori’s foremost concern. “I didn’t want to be sick of it.” Now, after 17 years, she’s ready to freshen up the house by reupholstering the furniture. Among her favorite spaces is the entrance hall, with its cream-colored marble floor accented with black slate. The center-hall’s split double staircase, carpeted with a wow-inducing leopard print, combines to form the second-floor landing and provide a stunning, statement-making overview of the entryway below. Meanwhile, Sandy’s mahogany-paneled home office bears witness to his legendary stable of triumphant racehorses, with dozens of inscribed trophies lining the shelves. A commodities and stock trader, Sandy was once one of the largest racehorse owners in the country, but now concentrates mostly on Truth + Beauty. According to Cori, her Canarsie, Brooklyn-born husband’s passion for racing ran deep. “When he was 13, he rode his dirt bike to OTB,” she

says. Twenty years ago, Cori’s trip to Saratoga, a hub for the racehorse set, led to her lasting friendship with reality TV star Bethenny Frankel, whose father trained horses for Sandy. The oversized island-in-the-middle of the kitchen is a home cook’s dream, and to this day, the aroma of certain foods roasting in the oven brings back warm memories of her grandmother’s apartment. Those days also set the stage for her continued sensitivity to scents and passion for aromatherapy. As she tells it, aromatherapy is a key ingredient in imbuing a home with a spa-like quality. In her master bathroom, Cori deploys aromatic candles and orchids to duplicate the relaxing atmosphere Truth + Beauty provides, and she lists products like exfoliating scrub, body butter and foot cream as must-haves for a home spa. A self-described “product junkie,” Cori launched the 15-employee Truth + Beauty last year after having patronized Manhattan spas and shops for beauty items and treatments and noticing a void in the market for a one-stop shop for beauty regimens and procedures. The shop also includes a showcase of Cori’s jewelry line, a business she cultivated over 15 years and includes custom and redesigned pieces. As part of her commitment to truth and beauty, Cori makes sure either she or a member of her spa team tests every product, treatment or equipment before it is applied to a client. The only treatment she has yet to personally experience is the CO2 Fractional Laser because of the “four to five days of downtime” in

healing it requires. The procedure results in unblemished, silky smooth skin, Cori says. “It’s mind-blowing,” she said, “and I’m definitely going to do it.” Cori’s interest in helping others achieve their personal best is almost genetic. Her father owned a weight loss center in New Jersey that was successful for many years until a downturn in the market dragged the business under. The reversal of fortune was dramatic. Besides forcing her family to sell its spacious New Jersey home and move to smaller living quarters, Cori had to withdraw from Monmouth College before her sophomore year started and enroll in a far less expensive community college. Thanks to her father’s determination to provide for his family and her mother’s employment at Bonwit Teller, she was able to advance to the University of Maryland, from which she graduated, and her brother was able to finish law school. “My father never gave up,” said Cori. “He sold cards, hip and knee implants and whatever he could to support the family while my mother remained committed to her career. They were partners through all our ups and downs. ” Those memories fuel Cori’s entrepreneurial spirit and desire to make a difference philanthropically. She and her husband support many organizations, including UJA-Federa- tion of New York, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and the Children’s Medi- cal Fund of New York. In short, Cori not only helps people look and feel good but does tremendous good. SE

ith seven miles of oceanfront sands, historic buildings, an abundance of shopping, fine dining, arts and cultural options, Southampton Village attracts visitors with its natural beauty and iconic small town appeal. Located on the South Fork of Long Island in the heart of the Hamptons, Southampton Village is one of the wealthiest communities on the East End. The fashionable village encompasses a relatively small area within the larger Town of Southampton, which includes Westhampton Beach, Sag Harbor and other villages. Called Agawam by its original inhabitants, the Shinnecocks, the area was dubbed Southampton in the 1600s, when English settlers arrived. The village is a high end shopping mecca with a small town feel. Malls are not part of the equation. Instead, delightful afternoons can be spent strolling past voguish clothing, home furnishing and jewelry boutiques along Jobs Lane and Main Street. Jildor, at 30 Jobs Lane, features designer footwear, while the nearby Andrianna Shamaris boutique overflows with chic home furnishings and one-of-a-kind clothing. Ralph Lauren, Isaac Mizrahi and Michael Kors all have a presence in Southampton, but there are also unique shops like Cashmere Outlet on Jobs Lane, featuring Scottish and Italian sweaters for men and

women. Another outstanding find is Collette Designer Consignment, 22 Main Street, where gently used women’s clothing, shoes and handbags are deeply discounted and include labels ranging from Oscar de la Renta to Prada and Chanel. Eateries are also in abundance. Stop at one of the cafes or specialty food boutiques. The Golden Pear Café, 99 Main Street, is a popular spot serving hearty breakfasts which might include fresh-baked muffins, croissants or scones, and lunch including hot entrees. The Village Gourmet Cheese Shop, 11 Main Street, offers soups, homemade sandwiches, quiche and an extensive selection of distinctive international cheeses from Irish Whiskey Aged Cheddar to the Pecorino Toscano with Truffles await. Just down the block at 94 Main Street, Vines & Branches features a gourmet olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting room, plus specialty gourmet foods through their private label. Try the butter-infused olive oil with black truffle sea salt, pick up a jar of signature jams like raspberry jalapeno, or purchase one of their olive oil-infused body products. One of Southampton’s finest restaurants, Sant Ambroeus, 30 Main Street, has a cafe up front and an elegant restaurant in the back. Mouthwatering Milanese fare includes hearty pastas with rich pestos or tomato sauces. Veal scaloppini with whole grain mustard sauce,

grilled salmon with potato coulis, broccoli rabe and fried chickpeas are among the savory entrees. Rich desserts range from espresso-soaked tiramisu to chocolate mousse cake. At 47A Jobs Lane, Topiare Candy Shop celebrates its first summer with vintage sweets and more. Pez dispensers sit alongside rolls of Necco wafers and bring back sweet memories. Chocolates abound, including Chuao’s singular flavors like maple bacon chocolate bars, or spicy chipotle with dark chocolate. For another sweet option, amble over to 43 North Sea Road to Tate’s Bake Shop for amazingly crisp and delicate chocolate chip cookies and decadent, rich and dense cakes. Blue Duck Bakery Café, 30 Hampton Road, boasts freshly baked artisan bread, sandwiches, soups, pastries and more. Southampton is also rich in arts and culture. In late 2012, the Parrish Art Museum, founded in 1898

and having outgrown its central village location, moved to a new 34,000 square foot home designed by the architectural firm Herzog & De Meuron at 279 Montauk Highway in nearby Water Mill. This distinctive building showcases artwork from the permanent collection, featuring East End-related artists William Merritt Chase, Thomas Moran and Childe Hassam, as well as a changing series of contemporary exhibitions. The Parrish’s beloved historic home at 25 Jobs Lane was taken over by the Southampton Center. Its roster includes live performances, films, concerts, and children’s activities. A local farmers’ market offering fresh local produce, as well as fudge, cakes and pies is held on the Southampton Center’s grounds every Sunday through Columbus Day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Opportunities for outdoors fun abounds. Behind the Rogers

Memorial Library at 91 Coopers Farm Road, the Southampton Rose Society maintains a garden abloom with colorful flowers set against the backdrop of a gazebo. Wednesdays in July and August free summer concerts are held at 6:30 p.m. at Coopers Beach or Agawam Park. Mansion gazing is a favorite pastime, particularly on the way to Coopers Beach. Drive down treelined First Neck Lane for a panorama of dreamy residences, and then continue down Meadow Lane for a glimpse of oceanfront villas like Calvin Klein’s steel-framed contemporary manse with expansive walls of glass. Whether you want to soak up the sun or tackle the waves, the best option to spend time at the shore is at Coopers Beach, named Best Beach in America 2010 by Dr. Stephen Leatherman, a.k.a. “Dr. Beach,” who compiles annual lists of the nation’s most outstanding sands. Daily parking passes are available at the beach for $40. Although the village swells with visitors during the summer, it retains its small town charm. Erin Hattrick, owner of Topiare, concludes: “Southampton has maintained its integrity over the years. There are no beach bars along the water, and it has great old-fashioned mom-and-pop shops, which are a dying breed. You can still walk in from the city and shopkeepers will remember your name.” SE SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY 49

Daily parking passes are available at the beach for $40. Although the village swells with visitors during the summer, it retains its small town charm. Erin Hattrick, owner of Topiare, concludes: “Southampton has maintained its integrity over the years. There are no beach bars along the water, and it has great old-fashioned mom-and-pop shops, which are a dying breed. You can still walk in from the city and shopkeepers will remember your name.” SE SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY 49

A successful landscaping design improves lifestyle and the enjoyment of a home. kle, and other green or flowering low-growing species. Another aspect of Frank’s landscape designs is the incorporation of pools and sports courts, which are more than just basketball or tennis courts. Golf putting greens, with numerous tee boxes, allow hitting from different locations. Using easy-to-maintain synthetic material reflects reality in putting; speed and ball control mimic that of a grass putting green. Traditional shaped pools, 22 by 50 feet, are in demand; though in some instances he utilizes more unusual shapes. There is a surge of interest in electric covers, which “keeps in the warmth and the dirt out.” More importantly, the covers provide an added safety feature to protect children from accidentally falling into the pool. Frank prefers to use a thick ledge, such as a 16” to 24” inch coping to frame the pool, patio or grass.

Ciardullo, who has been in the landscaping business for over thirty years, and has won numerous local, state, and national awards, prides himself on creating and building a plan that meets the needs and desire of every client. Great landscaping can transform a property into a natural extension of a house, enhancing its beauty and value by creating “dramatic spaces for recreation, entertaining or just relaxing,” says Mark Bottone, owner of Huntington-based Coastal Designs, coastaldesignsny.com. Among his specialities are swimming pools, poolscapes, waterfalls and flowering beds. A landscape requires “an effective design that takes into account drainage, erosion and soil conditions, along with the proper trees, shrubbery and grass.” When home prices were declining, people were holding back, but with home pric-

Owner Chris Stasi explains, “homeowners are choosing to go with wet cast stone rather than natural stone because it is more economical, stronger, durable and maintenance free.” Chris also notes, “homeowners are building a lot less decks as wood and composite prices have sky-rocketed.” Paving stones are an excellent choice be-

Gold Coast Pavers also incorporates koi ponds into their landscape designs because they add depth to outdoor spaces and provide diversity. Including waterfalls, bridges, reflecting pools and fountains helps create a one-of-a-kind oasis and can provide “maximum enjoyment with minimum maintenance.” A poolscape can transform a backyard into a private vacation get away with all the comforts of home. To fully utilize outdoor space and create “a backyard for all seasons,” Chris incorporates outdoor kitchens, bars, water features and fireplaces bringing together family and friends. SE

By LINDA SASLOW Julie Teich, a fitness enthusiast, follows a weekly routine which includes running, barre classes, Pilates, strength training and hot yoga. However, her fervor for working out reached a new level when she recently discovered SLT. “The classes are different from anything else I’ve done before,” says Julie, 37, a mother of two. “They’re a combination of Pilates and cardio, and are very strenuous and challenging. I definitely worked my muscles to their limit, and the day after my first class, I was sore -- in all the right places!” SLT—which stands for Strengthen, Lengthen, Tone—is the brainchild of Amanda Freeman, of Manhattan, who compares an SLT workout to “Pilates on crack.” As she explains, “It combines the benefits of Pilates with a vigorous calorie burning cardio workout.” In other words, whole body fitness. The key piece of equipment used in SLT classes is known as a Megaformer, a 250-lb. piece of machinery with a sturdy platform, front and back panels, pulleys, resistance bands, and moving panels which hide an undercarriage of adjustable resistance weights and springs. The Megaformer, an updated and more complex version of the Pilates reformer, was first created in Los Angeles

by a Pilates instructor, Sebastien Lagree, who opened a studio under his name and soon developed a cult following. Amanda, who was frequently out in Los Angeles for business as a trends forecaster, quickly became addicted to the workouts. She was impressed by the lean and toned bodies of fellow exercisers in the classes. “It was the first time I finished a class and didn’t feel like I still had to go for a run,” she recalls. “There was nothing like it in New York, which was crazy because New York is the city with everything.” For Amanda, it was a no brainer. She opened the first SLT studio in midtown Manhattan in September, 2011. As word quickly spread, eager and energetic SLTers, ranging from their late twenties to early sixties, started using the Megaformers. Classes, limited to an average of 10 participants—each with his or her own 10foot long Megaformer—are 50 minutes, led by trained instructors and set to high energy, heart pumping hip-hop and rock music. At any given moment, students perch, squat, kneel, stand, or lunge—on or beside their Megaformer. The cost for a single class is $40, but more cost effective packages are available, and first timers can try a class for $20. Classes can be reserved in advance, online. The benefit of small classes, explains Amanda, is that the teachers can pay attention to form and correction. “It’s not meant for entry level exercisers, because the classes are core intensive,” she adds. “But they are low impact and very safe.” Since the first SLT studio opened, others followed—in Soho, the Hamptons, Short Hills, Westchester, and the newest, in Roslyn, which made its debut at the end of March. Lauren Glick, who heard about SLT from her friends in Manhattan, was among the first participants to join a class at the Roslyn studio. “I loved it!” says Lauren, 37, of Roslyn. “I’ve always liked Pilates, but this incorporates cardio and is a great workout. I already told my mom about SLT, and she’s coming with me to my next class.” SE

Nick & Toni’s

Bay Kitchen Bar

Whether or not you stay overnight at this elegant hotel housed in a historic building, you can enjoy the restaurant run by noted chef Tom Colicchio, recipient of five James Bear Foundation awards, and acclaimed for his Manhattan restaurants Gramercy Tavern and Craft. Here, American farm-to-table cuisine relies heavily on locally sourced produce and the bounty of their own one-acre garden. This season it will yield super-fresh ingredients like Borettana onions, Red Russian kale, golden detroit beets and much more. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, plus weekend brunch. This summer’s menu includes tuna carpaccio with garden radishes, sea beans, Calabrian chili and fried Montauk oysters, as well as sweet corn agnolotti with braised leeks and Australian truffle. Mouthwatering desserts like brioche donuts with lime sugar and passionfruit cream will round out the meal.

This popular French bistro is housed in a classic space featuring century-old tin ceilings, and the original bar was crafted from hand-carved hardwood. New for the 2014 season, a modernized bar features stainless steel, glass and wood shelving. The update extends to the cocktail program. Mixologist Justin August Fairweather brings creations like his fig-infused Sangria, pumpkin pie ale and more. Enjoy delectable fare such as appetizers like escargot with Pernod and garlic croutons, select Mecox Bay or imported cheeses and more. Entrees include Doug’s Long Island Duck Breast and the hearty Le Grande Macaroni & Cheese with prosciutto and summer truffles. Save room for what Wine Spectator magazine describes as the place to get the “best dessert in the Hamptons.” From their rich chocolate Pot de Crème with whipped crème fraiche to their Milk Chocolate Tart for Two with passionfruit coulis, there are many choices to conclude your meal.

If you dine at this well-known East Hampton restaurant, you might run into some of their star-studded clientele like Billy Joel, Calvin Klein, Jack Nicholson, Tom Hanks or Jimmy Fallon. Much of the produce for the Mediterranean cuisine comes from the eatery’s own one-acre garden; seasonal menus revolve around what is available from local farmers and fishermen’s catch of the day. Delectable seafood dishes like the pan-roasted scallops with caramelized fennel, grapefruit and radicchio with truffle emulsion are bound to please. Desserts are even more decadent this year with the addition of new pastry chef Rachel Cronemeyer to the existing team. Save room for the ultra-rich bittersweet chocolate cremeux with chocolate crumbles and banana malt gelato, flourless chocolate cake, and other delectable options.

Chef and restauranteur Eric Miller and his business partner, Richard Silver, opened this culinary gem this season in the building formerly occupied by Anddra. With an open-air lounge, indoor and outdoor dining and sweeping views of Three Mile Harbor at sunset, Bay Kitchen Bar features East Coast seafood classics at lunch and dinner. The 3000 square foot space boasts a raw bar menu including locally sourced Little Neck clams, Eastern Shore oysters and more. A bounty of seafood options includes fresh catches of the day incorporated into savory items like handmade lobster ravioli, local striped bass with shaved spring vegetables and spinach, as well as dayboat sea scallops with sweet pea risotto and roasted pepper vinaigrette. As you linger in the airy space after your meal, order desserts like the fresh watermelon popsicles or Bay Kitchen marquis of chocolate with pistachio ice cream.

The outdoor porch at Mill Pond House in Centerport is an awesome spot for dining or sipping a glass of Merlot at the tiki hut while gazing at Mill Pond. On cool nights, the porch is heated and the restaurant also provides knitted afghans to throw over your shoulders. Have a bowl of lobster bisque and try the seared tuna kana salad with cucumber, sprouts, avocado, rice noodles and ponzo vinaigrette. For a main course, the roasted Chatham cod fillet comes with Little Neck Clams, burnt broccoli and clam broth. Finish the meal with a cheese plate and a warm apple crisp. Mill Pond House 437 E. Main St. Centerport 631-261-7663

George and Gillis Poll’s modern Asian restaurant at the Americana Manhasset has outdoor seating in a minimalist and simple yet elegantly closed off area of the topnotch shopping destination’s parking lot. Munch on edamame and salmon tartar; then try the Peking Duck Salad with frisee, candied oranges, crispy shallots and honey citrus vinaigrette followed by the bronze broiled Miso Black Cod with shishito pepper salad with bonito shavings or the Lobster prepared with ginger scallion or black bean sauce.

COSMETIC SURGERY USING CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY Now more than ever, we can count on the latest, exciting technology to help achieve the best possible cosmetic surgery results. We are each confronted by the media with hundreds of alternatives to helping improve our appearance, regain our youth and tone up our bodies. The reality is that the true secret to maintaining a youthful look is paying attention to the basic issues that you can control – getting adequate sleep, drinking plenty of water, watching your diet and finding the time to exercise. What many of us find, however, is that this quest for beautiful skin and a beautiful body can be quite frustrating. We can help you obtain the look that you are striving for by using the available advancements in technology to assist you in attaining your goals.

Dr. Stephen Greenberg is a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic surgery.

L augh ‘til It Stops Hurting: On April 4th, at the Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury, the Long Island Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America hosted more than 350 guests at “Laugh ‘til It Stops Hurting,” the organization’s annual comedy fundraiser. Rita Rudner, the award-winning actress, author and comedienne provoked the laughter with her amusing routine. The event was an overwhelming success, raising $500,000 for CCFA’s research and education programs. Awards were presented to Abbe and Scott Spector and Jeffrey Kraut in recognition of their longstanding support for CCFA’s mission to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.    Abbe and Scott received the Cornerstone Award--Building a Foundation for the Future. The Spectors became involved with CCFA more than 20 years ago when their close friends, Lisa and Jamie Pappas’ eldest child, Arianna, was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Abbe eloquently described their commitment, relating how she and Scott watched in dismay as

Ilise Cohen and Jeffrey Kraut

beautiful Arianna became sicker and sicker. They wanted to do everything they could to ease her suffering. Over the years, their support never wavered and they learned of many others in their circle who were also affected. Jeffrey Kraut, the Senior Vice President of Strategy and Business Informatics for the North Shore-LIJ Health System, has a similar story of involvement. Though no one in his family was affected by Crohn’s or colitis, Jeffrey and his wife, Ellen, became CCFA supporters when David Cohen, the son of their friends, Ilise and Craig Cohen, was diagnosed as a child.  Over the years, in Jeffrey’s role as a community health leader, he advocated for CCFA in many ways. As a result, he was award the Community Champion, Friend and Advocate Award. The event was an overwhelming success raising $500,000 for CCFA’s research and education programs. For more information about the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, visit www. ccfa.org or contact the Long Island Chapter at (516) 222-5530.

L augh ‘til It Stops Hurting: On April 4th, at the Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury, the Long Island Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America hosted more than 350 guests at “Laugh ‘til It Stops Hurting,” the organization’s annual comedy fundraiser. Rita Rudner, the award-winning actress, author and comedienne provoked the laughter with her amusing routine. The event was an overwhelming success, raising $500,000 for CCFA’s research and education programs. Awards were presented to Abbe and Scott Spector and Jeffrey Kraut in recognition of their longstanding support for CCFA’s mission to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.    Abbe and Scott received the Cornerstone Award--Building a Foundation for the Future. The Spectors became involved with CCFA more than 20 years ago when their close friends, Lisa and Jamie Pappas’ eldest child, Arianna, was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Abbe eloquently described their commitment, relating how she and Scott watched in dismay as

beautiful Arianna became sicker and sicker. They wanted to do everything they could to ease her suffering. Over the years, their support never wavered and they learned of many others in their circle who were also affected. Jeffrey Kraut, the Senior Vice President of Strategy and Business Informatics for the North Shore-LIJ Health System, has a similar story of involvement. Though no one in his family was affected by Crohn’s or colitis, Jeffrey and his wife, Ellen, became CCFA supporters when David Cohen, the son of their friends, Ilise and Craig Cohen, was diagnosed as a child.  Over the years, in Jeffrey’s role as a community health leader, he advocated for CCFA in many ways. As a result, he was award the Community Champion, Friend and Advocate Award. The event was an overwhelming success raising $500,000 for CCFA’s research and education programs.

THE GOOD LIFE

VIRGIN TERRITORY

Rediscovering My Inner Beachcomber By DINA SANTORELLI

In any other year, Type A person that I am, the thought of lounging on a beach for five days would be totally unappealing. Not so in 2013, a time I like to call the Year of Upheaval. It was a year when I had to clean out my parents’ apartment, following the death of my mom in the spring and the caring of my father who had fallen ill a few months later. That summer, I was driving to hospitals in New Jersey while on deadline for a nonfiction book, Daft Punk: A Trip Inside the Pyramid (St. Martin’s Press, January 2014), and running off on day trips with my three children to make up for canceling all of our extended travel plans. It was a year of ups and downs and give and take and come October, I was emotionally and physically exhausted, just as the weather was turning cold and the hustle and bustle of the holidays were heating up. I planned a trip to the Virgin Islands’ St. Thomas for the end of October with a group of girlfriends—well, rather, one girlfriend and a trio of her

friends whom I barely knew, but I didn’t care. I needed out. After the Year of Upheaval, I wanted nothing more than to stick my toes—if not my head—in the sand and let the roar of the ocean drown out my mental to-do lists. The first thing you notice about St. Thomas when your airplane is beginning its descent into Cyril E. King Airport are the emerald green peaks of this largely mountainous isle. For such a tiny place—just over 31 square miles—the land is robust with lush zigzagging slopes through which, I discovered, vehicle drivers snake their way to their destinations in ways not unlike New York City cabbies. We were staying at the Ritz-Carlton, which is nestled within a 30-acre waterfront estate of white-sand beaches and tropical gardens. When I walked into the hotel lobby and immediately handed a fruity drink, I officially turned my brain to off. Initially, my girlfriend and

I, being over-scheduled New Yorkers, had all these grand plans for our time as island girls…excursions to neighboring islands, ferry rides, swimming adventures, visits to St. Thomas’ historical sites and museums and shopping in Charlotte Amalie, the capital city. However, for five glorious days, we barely left the resort. After sleeping in and spending entire afternoons lounging by the pool guzzling rum punches, we ended our days at nearby restaurants watching the sun set. At night, we became a slumber party of five middleaged women lying around our suite in our PJs, ordering pizza, watching reality shows and sharing the minutia of our lives. We did this every day and rather than be bored with the routine, I found I craved it. I took long, splendid showers, my only worry being whether or not my bathing suit dried out on the veranda in time for me to get it wet again. I ripped through the stack of entertainment magazines I brought with me dating back to the spring,

devouring write-ups of films I couldn’t even remember playing in theaters. The only real decisions I made involved red or white, pool or ocean and my choice of aromatherapy oil scent (I opted for pineapple) during my visit to the Ritz-Carlton’s spa, a West Indies-inspired seaside enclave. After 50 minutes of a Signature Massage, I emerged feeling like a young Achilles who had been held by her heel and dipped into a river Styx-like magic salve. My heart rate slowed to the beat of a lullaby, elevating only when a five-foot iguana, who was sunning himself, surprised me beside my beach chaise. And it rained only once during the vacation, one morning while we were having breakfast and stopped by the time we paid the check, the constant breeze of the island quickly causing the puddles to evaporate as if the storm clouds never stopped by. I often thought of my mom. In the past, I made a habit of calling her while on

vacation whenever I had a little downtime, to let her know all the things I’d seen and done, but most of all to let her know I was all right. I wondered what she’d think of this little sojourn of mine into luxurious repose, as it was from her I inherited my penchant for busyness. One of the things I kept from my parents’ apartment was a tiny piece of paper my mom used to display on her refrigerator door (and is now on mine) on which she wrote, in her distinctively flamboyant handwriting: “It’s the journey, not the destination.” The note serves as a little reminder for her life was a series of destinations and is not to be wasted on the anticipation of any one place. And it will forever remain a reminder to me—her Type A progeny—to enjoy every single one of them, be they full of activity or otherwise. Still, after five days of luxurious nothingness, I was ready to return to the chaos I call home. SE
