  • Universal Design, the design of products and environments suitable for everyone, from children to the elderly, is a term increasingly heard on the East End, where retirees continue to swell the population. Put simply, it is intentionally planning houses and public spaces to meet changing needs, design that allows “aging in place.” And it is happening here.
  • Customers come from near and far and at this point the general manager of London Jewelers in East Hampton can often spot them the minute they walk in. They are almost always men, and when they look at the cases of glittering jewelry and watches and rings, they suddenly seem unsure they’re in the right place. Then, with a quick glance, they see “Humidor” in big letters on a glass door to the right and shelves of cigars inside a climate-controlled, walk-in room.
  • The working relationship between Dr. Gail Schonfeld and Dr. Jennifer Favre that has transformed East End Pediatrics began 12 years ago, when Dr. Favre was just a college student.
  • When I was growing up in Pittsburgh I worked one college summer as a waitress at an enormous restaurant on the New Jersey shore called Zaberer’s, which was run by a seriously tanned man who grandly called himself “The Host of the Coast.” The main attractions there were lobster — steamed lobster, stuffed lobster, lobsters everywhere — and “Zaber-ized” cocktails served in glasses the size of bathroom sinks.
  • When Luke Louchheim made an appointment with Maude Adams of Artisan Construction Associates of Water Mill to discuss his proposal to build cat and dog “condos” to raise money for the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons, Ms. Adams knew Luke was a student.
  • The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in Springs ­­could lose $10,000 in state funding and take a hit to other revenue streams because the Town of East Hampton has mandated a switch to visits by appointment only, which went into effect yesterday.
  • It was a little after 7 a.m. on a postcard-pretty Saturday and the water on Sag Harbor Cove was glimmering and still as cars began to pull into the parking lot where the Sag Harbor Community Rowing Club meets.
  • Sharon Bakes has two children who are 8 and 14 years old, and acknowledges she can’t definitively prove the well water at the Noyac house her children have lived in their entire lives contributed to their developmental problems. But she is concerned about what might be leeching into the soil and water there from the controversial Sand Land industrial mine, which has been operating on Middle Line Highway in Noyac since 1961.
  • Andrea Anthony is a co-owner and hands-on manager of the Lobster Roll, one of the most iconic eateries on Long Island. But neither the restaurant’s 53-year tradition nor acclaim for the food protects her and her partners from having the same staffing problems that neighboring businesses continue to have, even at this late date in the season.
  • It takes a smart person to know his destiny when he gets a peek at it, and it takes an even bigger person to make the leap of faith once he does.

  • Gregory Metzger, coordinator for the South Fork Natural History Museum's Shark Research and Education program, uses just a rod and reel to catch the juvenile great whites that were tagged and studied the past few years to establish, for the first time ever, that Long Island's waters are the only confirmed nursery area for great whites in the North Atlantic.
