    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.

    For decades, the ideal garden and the pristine-green lawn has come at a steep price: chemicals that poison the land and water (and, sometimes, even people). But today, as Christine Sampson reports, there are alternatives — and they are beautiful, because pure nature is perfect.

    With its open vistas of brown furrows, then low green plants dotted with white flowers running in parallel lines to the horizon, Bridgehampton used to be famous not for movie stars and mansions, but for potatoes. Today, the Wesnofske clan holds on against all odds: a squeeze on farmable land, the increasing difficulty of getting to market, and the deeper question of who will carry on.
