You say ceviche, I say crudo . . . but what about aguachile, poke, and tartare? Bountiful are the ways to prepare uncooked fish from the briny depths of Long Island waters. Laura Donnelly takes it beyond tuna and offers a few gorgeously simple summer recipes.

A payphone still stands in East Hampton, behind Town Hall on Pantigo Road. Pick up the receiver and you’ll get an actual, albeit staticky, dial tone. Got your quarters ready? Thanks to 20-plus years of inflation, you’ll need two. A working payphone, in 2023 — is this really happening?
