    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.

    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.
