  • Erling Hope is a woodworker who has built exquisite cabinets and furniture for many years, and who has also built a specialized career creating liturgical altars and fixtures. About five years ago, he started tinkering with wood from a stand of trees on his property on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike, making fascinating little boxes with it.
  • At a standing-room-only talk about two East Hampton doctors at Clinton Academy on Friday night, the feeling was more of a family reunion than a lecture.
  • People spanning the age spectrum and from across the East End gathered in Sag Harbor for the second annual women's march there.
  • Dogs new to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons shelter are walked twice a week in East Hampton Village as a way to get them used to people and unfamiliar situations.
  • A life-size giraffe sculpture that has been moldering in an East Hampton Village holding pen since it was discovered "grazing" at the edge of the Nature Trail a year and a half ago, will be sold to the highest bidder.
  • Michael Malcé and Jolie Kelter, who had been collecting antiques individually for a long time, collected each other at a big antiques center on Second Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, when each had a booth there in 1971.
  • Ned Rifkin interviewed Andrea Grover on Saturday at the Amagansett Library. He started off the exchange with a rapid-fire series of questions, presented here.
  • I think of the 24 years since I moved full time to the South Fork as a coming home of sorts . . . the first one in 1993, the second one more recent.
  • Imagine a farm that starts at 85 feet across, narrows to 50 feet, and goes back far enough to fill a total of 1.4 acres. Sort of like an extra-skinny railroad flat in New York City, or a much attenuated flag-lot oasis.
  • An East Hampton house with views of Hook Pond from almost every room is nestled on a preserved 1.78-acre site with 328 feet of pond frontage. Designed by the dean of local architects, Alfred Scheffer, and reconfigured so that it now flows into four sections, the house was built in the mid-1950s for the Right Rev. Austin Pardue, the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh, and his wife, Dorothy Klotz Pardue, a former nationally ranked tennis player. The Bishop’s Cottage, a one-room building he used as a writing studio, is still there.
