Chapter 1

WHY THE

HAMPTONS?

––––––––

Only because there’s nothing quite like the Hamptons. Visiting Long Island in the summer is just one of those things everybody ought to do once.

It gets a little crazy (OK, it gets a lot crazy) in the height of the hectic summer season, with bumper-to-bumper traffic in East Hampton and elsewhere, but it’s still something you ought to experience. I always prefer to go a couple of weeks before it gets too nuts, or the week right after Labor Day, when everybody skedaddles back to New York or wherever they came from. And believe me, it does clear out with the snap of a finger right after Labor Day.

A couple of years ago, I spent two weeks in a beach house a couple of miles east of Westhampton. The first week was before Labor Day and the second week was after Labor Day, and unless you’ve experienced that particular part of the summer up here, you can’t appreciate how drastically (and quickly) the area changes.

When I was in my 20s, broke and eking out a subsistence living working in retail at Saks Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, I spent all the long dreary winter months doing my damnedest to make friends with people who had places out in the Hamptons, working every angle I could, whether involving business or pleasure—to wrangle as many invitations as I could squeeze out of my friends.

Then, of course, those long hot Fridays would roll around and you’d have to make your way out to the island to take up your friends on those invitations.

It was often a nightmare getting out to the Hamptons because every way to get there was a tedious chore, endlessly exasperating. Sometimes I’d take the train, the Long Island Railroad.

Other times I’d hop a ride with friends doing the same thing I was—mooching off pals with pads out on the island. We’d split the cost of the gas and endure the backed up traffic on the Long Island Expressway (LIE). Every Friday you wonder why they call it an expressway, because it’s everything but express. You only want to take a car if you need it to get from town to town. Otherwise, try to avoid having a car in season.
