• Modern Love

    Bates Masi designs houses — modern, ethereal, fun, surprising, and comfortable, but never Grand with a capital G — that stand in singular contrast to the ubiquitous shingle style mansions of Hamptons cliché.

  • Waking Up at Lazy Point

    Photography by Patricia Paladines, Carl Safina

    This daily morning walk is how I take the pulse of the place, and my own. The daily miraculous seldom gets attention. We are too busy, insecure, and - mainly - blind to the exquisite.

    The Dock to Dish mission, at its most basic level, was to connect consumers more directly with small-scale commercial fishermen who practice sustainable catch methods.

    Looking north at a certain angle from the cluster of barns at the corner of Cooks Lane and Scuttlehole Road, the stretch of cultivated fields offers a glimpse into another era, when eastern Long Island was a promising new frontier for farmers squeezed off their acreage farther west on the Island by the forward march of development.

  • Young Americans

    Decades have passed since the first Latino immigrants arrived on the East End. Hard-working people from places like Ecuador, Colombia, and Mexico, they are today woven into the fabric of life here — building businesses, volunteering, raising children ready to make their mark on the future of this country. Five voices from the community speak of becoming American — sharing glimpses of both the hardships and the everyday heroism of that difficult path.

    Round Swamp Farm has become a mecca, from May to December, for anyone who embraces locally sourced food and loves home cooking. And the successful business has preserved a fishing and farming way of life for a family whose roots have grown here on land and sea for three centuries.

    So many of the artists we claim as our own here, particularly the noted ones, are from somewhere else.

    The Death of Jackson Pollock


    This August marks the 60th anniversary of the night when Jackson Pollock died, thrown from the wheel of his car into the woods on Springs-Fireplace Road. To this day, Pollock still looms larger than any of the legions of young artists who have followed his phantom to the East End — and a steady stream of curious fans, many of them born long after the great man’s death, still makes the pilgrimage to his gravesite at Green River Cemetery. Jennifer Landes reflects on what happened that night and why.

    Coming Together to Save Our Ponds

    It’s a watershed moment for the South Fork environment: A group of powerful residents on Georgica Pond — a golden circle of the most beautiful and expensive real estate in the country — has

    decided to battle back against pollution. But saving our water bodies (and our drinking water) won’t happen without a mighty effort by us all.

    It’s sad but safe to say that we won’t see the likes of Tina Fredericks, real estate royalty, again. She didn’t just sell to the stars — she had her own star wattage. She befriended the mighty, but never kowtowed, and never neglected her clients on the other end of the socioeconomic spectrum. She died last year, but her vision and perspective live on in the dramatic, but ingeniously human, touches of the house she built on Georgica Pond.

    Like the California pop of 1960s and ’70s, the sound of Jack and Eliza is as warm and irresistibly bittersweet as the last day of summer vacation.

    As author of the Social Q’s column in The New York Times, Philip Galanes delivers sage and amusing answers to readers’ personal-life queries, from “Is it too soon to text back?” to “Can I tell my motherin-law her wigs are ugly?” This time we had a few questions about him.

    For a century, the South Fork has drawn them. Lifelong friendships have been made, beach-marshmallow traditions established, and countless love affairs begun with this preternaturally stunning stretch of sand and fertile earth. As Christina Robert — a filmmaker, novelist, and environmental activist — writes, growing up a summer kid has also sprouted something else entirely: roots and the inspiration for a big life.
