Those coming to the event from points west have the option to avoid the traffic and arrive by train, as the Long Island Rail Road will add a train specifically for the occasion. It will leave Speonk at 10:19 a.m., with stops at all stations between there and East Hampton, where it arrives at 11:02. Later in the day, there is a return train to Speonk departing East Hampton at 4 p.m. Tickets cost $7 each way.

The Amagansett Citizens Advisory Committee had a surprise guest Monday night, Natalie Mongan, a junior at East Hampton High School. Ms. Mongan presented her own independent research, done through an A.P. research seminar, showing the level of erosion at Atlantic Avenue Beach that can not only affect shoreline defense, but shift the coastline itself.
