East Hampton Town has issued an online reminder to residents that Wednesday, May 31, is the deadline for the second half of property tax payments.

The town also sent notices by mail, on April 26.

Tax bills can be viewed online at When paying by check, residents should write their bill number and telephone number on the check.

The town offers several ways to make payments, noting that "we strongly recommend that you send your payment by certified mail." Mailed payments must be postmarked by May 31. They should be sent to East Hampton Tax Receiver, P.O. Box 50017, Newark, N.J. 07101, or to the tax receiver's office at 300 Pantigo Place, Suite 106, East Hampton 11937.

Via the above website, a credit/debit card processing fee of 2.5 percent applies for that online payment option; for e-checks, the fee is $1.75.

Payment by cash or check will also be accepted at the tax receiver's office at the above address on Pantigo Place. The office is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., excluding holidays; it will be closed on Monday, Memorial Day. After-hours payments can be dropped into the mail slot at the office.

Residents of "The End" can drop off their payments at the Montauk Community Playhouse, 240 Edgemere Street, between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., or at a local Dime Bank branch.

Time Ran Out for Two of East Hampton's Old Elms

Last week, two large American elm trees, estimated to be between 80 and 100 years old, were cut down at the intersection of Main Street and Newtown Lane: one in front of Louis Vuitton, and the other in front of J. Crew. Neither had Dutch elm disease, according to Olivia Brooks, the chairwoman of the 25-person Ladies Village Improvement Society tree committee since 2008, but both had simply reached the end of their long lives.

On the Wing: Like Reeds in the Breeze

Odds are, you’re not going to see an American bittern, despite its large size. Frankly, the American bittern doesn’t want to be seen; it chose invisibility as its superpower. Still, this is the best time of year to try; make the experience at least as much about the journey as the destination.
