SUMMER | 19
A BRI EF HI STORY OF HAMPTONS SCANDALS
MARTHA, MARTHA, MAR-
THA. Ms. Stewart argued that the
too-tall hedges of her real-estate
developer neighbor, Harry Mack-
lowe, encroached on the lawn of her
Gordon Bunshaft-designed home.
Back in 1997, Mr. Macklowe’s gar-
dener charged she backed him up
against a wall with her car to make
her point. Friends of Ms. Stewart
said she was nowhere near the area
at the time.
In 1996, ALEC BALDWIN bought
a $1.75 million home in the Hamp-
tons—specifically Amagansett,
N.Y.—, but then-wife Kim Basinger
never chose to move in (though
they did host the Clintons beach-
side). Their divorce a few years later
was acrimonious and public, but he
got custody of the East End.
In the grisliest scandal, the Hamp-
tons lifestyle became Lifetime mov-
ie fodder with the death in October
2001 of KKR investment banker
Ted Ammon. His wife Generosa’s
boyfriend was later convicted of his
murder. Warning to monied hus-
bands: Generosa acted when found
proof Ted had contacted a divorce
attorney in his desk drawer.
In 2001, pr maven LIZZIE
GRUBMAN backed her SUV into
16 people outside of a Hamptons
club and was later charged with
reckless endangerment and driving
while intoxicated. Ironically, the
event widely publicized the concept
and availability of “bottle service”
in the Hamptons!
SEAN “DIDDY” COMBS has
been holding his annual white
party in the Hamptons since 1998.
Was it true that, in 2007, chef Katie
Lee Joel was bounced for wearing
cream? It depends upon whose ver-
sion of the story you believe.
After 2003’s summer of tor-
rential rain, GEORGICA POND
was overflowing, and damaging
the basements of some of the rich
and famous whose homes ringed
its shores. One night, a mystery
landscaper dug a channel to drain
it into the Atlantic. Ron Perelman
was the first suspect: the cosmetics
king had reportedly tried to rent all
the canoes in the area one summer
to keep people from paddling by his
Creeks estate.
JERRY DELLA FEMINA got a
summons for unauthorized display
of pumpkins outside his restaurant
back in 1993. But he really bristled
some locals when he called a decade
later for the cooking of the neigh-
borhood’s endangered species,
the piping plover. Their migration
patterns, and their defenders, were
disturbing the fireworks on Main
Beach. “Little bastards,” he called
them, and we’re not sure he was
taking about the fowl.
In 2008, longtime East Hamp-
ton art dealer RUTH VERED was
handcufed after she refused to stop
serving drinks at her gallery open-
ing without a permit.
This year, the best is yet to
come. o
T
he 21st century has been very, very good to the
Hamptons. And, perhaps, even more gener-
ous to its critics. Every summer, there’s at least
one eyebrow-raising event involving an embarrassed
bold-faced name doing something completely inappro-
priate, if not outright heinous. Tourists buzz, tabloids
scream, everyone, whether beachside in lawn chairs or
sweating on the F train, feels smugly superior. Here,
as the summer kicks off, hot and sultry, are some of our
favorite East End’s scandals.

S
ome people check their
brains at the door when
they head out East in the
summer (and if you’ve
overheard any random
conversation on the Jitney,
you won’t disagree). But there’s much
more to these beaches than bronzer.
There’s Brahms. Really. While no one
would confuse New York in July with
fn-de-siècle Vienna, there’s much to
appreciate, from music to art to theater to
fne dining.
Here’s a selection of some rising stars,
as well as seasoned pros trying out some-
thing new.
Jose Franch-Ballester
Clarinetist Jose Franch-Ballester is among the
artists at the Bridgehampton Chamber Music
Festival (July 28-Aug. 21). He’ll be playing in
three concerts—“Historical Firsts,” Aug. 4, “From
Bohemia With Love,” Aug. 6, and “Schubert and
Beyond,” Aug. 7. Franch-Ballester, who was born
in Moncofa, Spain, received the 2010 MIDEM
Classique Outstanding Young Artist Award, and
in 2008 he won an Avery Fisher Career Grant.
Critics have praised his sure sound and his
artistic taste. His repertoire ranges from modern
to classical, and these concerts include Mozart
and Schubert as well as contemporary composers
Kenji Bunch and Paul Moravec. www.bcmf.org

in its salad days, then manager of 44 Restau-
rant in the Royalton when Anna Wintour was
eating salads there), has turned restaurateur
in recent years, with success; this summer he
and partners open Nobu Hamptons. So why
attempt to replicate black cod with miso on
the backyard grill when you can let someone
else prepare fsh better than you can? That
renowned dish is on the menu at this eatery
at the Capri Hotel in Southampton, N.Y., and
promises a poolside—read: way, way relaxed—
version of the original Nobu New York, with
indoor and outdoor seating and some new
dishes that will be exclusive to this Hamptons
hotspot. The local striped bass is sensational,
so expect the chef to create something spec-
tacular. www.noburestaurants.com
Dorothea Rockburne
This Canada-born abstract painter, a 1970’s
superstar, is only now getting her frst career
retrospective, thanks to the Parrish Art Mu-
seum, in Southampton. “In My Mind’s Eye,”
which runs through Aug. 14, features 50 works
ranging from installation pieces such as Scalar,
from 1971, to newer ones, such as Geometry
of Stardust. Rockburne’s works often explore
the nature of geometrical perception—in ways
both rigorous and playful. (She studied with
mathematician Max Dehn, an expert in geom-
etry). You can see the infuence of Franz Kline
and Philip Guston, and even the collaborations
of John Cage and Merce Cunningham, in her
work, but she really looks like no one else. This
perspective should bring her a new generation
of viewers. www.parrishart.org
Darius de Haas
Singer Darius de Haas—whom pianist and vo-
cal coach Steven Blier praises for “his musical
imagination and stunningly fexible voice”—
recently released Quiet Please, a recording of
American musical theater and jazz standards
ranging from Ellington and Gershwin to Stevie
Wonder and Adam Guettel. The two will
perform selections from the album on Aug. 13
at Poquatuck Hall in Orient, N.Y. On Aug. 27,
also at Poquatuck, Mr. Blier ofers a program
of Spanish and American song with a cast of
young artists including Corinne Winters and
John Brancy, who are emerging as tomorrow’s
stars in opera and in concert. www.nyfos.org
Elias Hansen
The artist Elias Hansen might be called a glass
clown. He works in glass, creating fasks, beakers
and vessels that play with our perceptions of
them as scientifc instruments, hippie smok-
ing apparatuses and craft-fair detritus. His are
sculptural installations, quite beautiful—in
Murano, Italy-inspired colors of deep orange and
yellow and dark violet. Though a few reviewers
have criticized his shows for lacking narrative

style
(whatever that’s supposed to mean), Mr. Hansen
doesn’t stint on “lovely.” Think Donald Judd
minus the electric current, and with more natural
light. He’s at the Fireplace Project in East Hamp-
ton, June 24 through July 18.
Sophie Shao
Cellists make you listen. Unlike a pyrotechnics-
prone tenor, or a show-of violinist, a cello vir-
tuoso’s biggest asset is the ability to draw you in
rather than make your jaw drop. Cellist Sophie
Shao has that quality to spare. She was a fnalist
at the prestigious Rostropovich and Tchaikovsky
competitions, and this year opened the season at
Lincoln Center’s Chamber Music Society. Next
season she’s premiering a new concerto written
for her by Howard Shore (his frst was for pianist
Lang Lang). But this summer, Ms. Shao is giving
a recital at East Hampton’s Guild Hall on July
24. She plays a Derazay cello once owned by the
Pablo Casals. www.sophieshao.com.

Mitchell Kriegman
At Nickelodeon, Mr. Kriegman helped create
The Ren and Stimpy Show and Rugrats. This
summer, he turns teacher, as the veteran and
venerable Stony Brook/Southampton Writers
Conference, running from July 13 through
24, adds a concentration on digital flmmak-
ing. (He runs his own production facility out
in Wainscott.) The July conference is better
known for its more traditional disciplines—
Melissa Bank of A Girl’s Guide to Hunting and
Fishing coaches fction writers, for example,
and U.S. poet laureate Billy Collins teaches
both poetry and, we hear, partying. Last sum-
mer, playwright/professor Roger Rosenblatt
cast his plays with Sigourney Weaver and Alan
Alda. But whatever the bells, whistles and star-
power in attendance, the formula still works:
it’s surfside study. www.stonybrook.edu/writ-
ers/writers/
Judith Hudson
Dealer James Salomon, a Mary Boone
veteran, opened his own namesake
Hamptons gallery a few years ago and
immediately juiced the quality of the
region’s art—and of its parties. The
gallery’s Summer Project (opening
reception is July 23) features Judith
Hudson’s “Playboy Advisor,” an
exhibition of watercolors
with texts that parody that
magazine’s famed sex-
column. The danger is they
may be taken seriously by
the rutting, roving animals
looking to mate during a
weekend in the Hamptons.
But these are humorous
works, drawn with panache.

Ghaya Oliveira
Americans make great layer cakes. But when it
comes to subtlety and the wow factor, nothing
beats a French baker. Or a pastry chef from a
former French colony. Ghaya Oliveira, who
grew up in Tunisia, began her career as a stock
trader, then moved to the U.S. to pursue a
culinary career. She impressed none other than
Daniel Boulud, with whom she’s been working
for a decade. She now oversees the desserts for
the Upper West Side’s Bar Boulud as well as the
just-opened Épicerie Boulud and Boulud Sud
next door. Like Chef Boulud, she’ll be demon-
strating her prowess at the Chefs & Champagne
event July 27, the James Beard Foundation’s
annual summer fund-raiser, in Sagaponack.
This year’s honoree is Emeril Lagasse, and Ms.
Oliveira will be creating cherry chocolate sand-
wich cake and an apricot pistachio religieuse
(a kind of cream puf). Bam! www.jamesbeard.

Jerry Seinfeld
Millions in syndication residuals, but all he
wanted to do was direct. The annoy-
ingly mutli-talented Jerry Seinfeld
opted to do something other than
collect expensive cars with his free
time. In a stretch, he directed Colin
Quinn in Colin Quinn Long Story
Short on Broadway last year.
To general surprise, this
show—a satirical history
of the world in about
75 minutes—worked.
Hamptonites can
catch the show
through June 26
at Guild Hall and
see for themselves
how Jerry’s doing
in a new career. o

Hamptons Guide
NYO
Gurney’s Resort and Spa,
Montauk
This veteran, relaxed-vibe hotel/
spa has a row of rooms so close
to the ocean you can lob a beach
ball from the door and hear a
splash. Unfortunately, not only
are those rooms not cheap, but
it takes a hike of a few fights up
and downstairs to get to them.
For the motivated, July weekend
nights start at $420 for the ocean
front rooms, $350 for ocean view,
and there’s a Wednesday lobster
bake if you head out early.
Gansett Green Manor,
Amagansett
Note to those without cars: the
Jitney stops right in front of this
cottage colony. Furnishings are…
quaint and… beige… and the walk
to the beach is more of a bike ride,
but every room or suite has a pri-
vate entrance. Weekday rates for
the one-room studios begin at
$275 and go to $350. Add about
$50 a night for the one-bedroom
suites.
American Hotel,
Sag Harbor
Floral wallpaper alert: This place
is not for the scrufy. A boarding
house during the whaling days
of the mid-nineteenth century,
the white-wicker local landmark
is smack-dab on tony Main
Street. New this summer are an
outpost of perfumery Bond No.
9 and a partnership with nearby
Bay Street Theater that ofers
discounted dinner with tickets.
There is a three-night minimum
stay during the summer, with
rates starting at $400 per night.
The Pridwin, Shelter
Island
The waterfront Pridwin, built cir-
ca-1927 and still boasting consid-
erable historic charm, has been
undergoing renovations that
mix mid-century modern design
with details from archival pho-
tographs and brochures. Some
cottages have also been tweaked
by modernist Fred Bernstein, so
think “Jetsons on vacation.” A
non-waterview room for three
nights in July costs just under
$800 and includes breakfast.
The Village Latch Inn,
Southampton
A Convenient Truth: The Gats-
by-esque boutique hotel right
at the fringe of Southampton
Village has hosted such celebs as
Vice President Al Gore, Michael
J. Fox and Sarah Jessica Parker;
Matt Lauer got married here.
The rooms are pretty and luxu-
rious, though some are tiny. A
pool set amid lush gardens eases
the sting. Rates range from $395
to $595 per night on weekends
(with midweek discounts) and
include breakfast.
Southampton Inn,
Southampton
A middle-ground between
Long Island’s trust-funder
resorts and its slew of pricey
glorified motels, this modest
Tudor-style hotel is a walk to
everything but the ocean. For
that, a shuttle leaves every
hour for Cooper’s Beach. On
a weekend in July, rates run
at $289 for a Thursday and
$469 for Friday and Saturday
nights. Tip: book online only
through the property’s own
Website to avoid a scene at
check-in.
Dune Resorts, East
Hampton
Dune Resorts operates prop-
erties from East Hampton to
Amagansett and Montauk,
many of them apartment-
style, so you can really pretend
you’re a townie. A weekend in
July (Thursday through Sun-
day) is $2,400 for a two-bed-
room unit at the Hermitage
that offers a living room, sepa-
rate dining room and kitchen.
At the newly renovated Beach-
comber, rooms are available
for weekend rates ranging
from $285 to $345. o -AP
E
very town has its secret spots, and we
plumbed our sources for their favorites:
We asked Hamptons regulars like Sotheby’s
vice chairman Lisa Dennison, New York Wine
& Food Festival director Lee Schrager, art col-
lector Larry Warsh, our own bon-vivant An-
thony Haden-Guest, plus a noted Hamptons
hedge-funder or two, for some stand-out ex-
periences. Here, NYO Magazine’s picks for….
The greenest spot on the East End?
Art dealer and collector Louis Meisel’s gor-
geous tucked-away garden of beech trees adja-
cent to his Sagaponack Sculpture farm. (Open
to the public, just quiet aboutit.)
The most soothing experience? Long-
house Reserve’s “Sound Meditation classes.”
held 8 a.m. every summer Saturday. Vibrate
with a fower. Really.
The hippest evening: Art dealer/Broad-
way producer Edward Tyler Nahem often
hosts lawn-chair movie screenings in his huge
backyard. Popcorn and tootsie rolls included.
The most impressive view? The marina
at East Hampton Point ofers a look at how the
other half lives. Unless you’re that half.
Most exclusive after-party? Laura
and Bob Sillerman, who own stakes in “Ameri-
can Idol,” Graceland and the “The Producers,”
usually host an impossibly lush actors-writers-
playwrights beach fete at their Meadow Lane
compound . It helps to know somebody at the
Stony Brook Southampton writing program,
their pet charity.
The most authentic eatery: Shippy’s.
The portions, wall art (yellowing “Dondi”
cartoons) and gestalt all date to the 50s; it’s
packed, but with locals. (One fan is Liz Smith.)
North ForkTable’s monastically pretty dining
room and serious food also got votes.
And the coolest place in the Hamp-
tons? The refrigerated back room at Round
Swamp Farm, open to the public butusually
empty. Rich with the scent of basil and other
herbs, it’s chilly even in sweltering July. o

ou don’t have a house in the Hamptons. No one has to know.
All you have to do is walk around in khaki shorts carrying
an Eli’s bag, whine about property taxes, andapologize that you
can’t host guests because of the kitchen remodel that just won’t
end. Then check into one of these hotels. You can be insuferable

Tate’s Bake Shop
To some people, the snap of a
Tate’s chocolate chip cookie
says “summer.” The cookies
come out of a grey-shingled
bakery with a twig-and-rose-
covered trellis of South-
ampton’s pretty main drag.
Said owner Kathleen King:
“We try to preserve that
memory you had as a
kid-- [of] something
your grandma made.”
New this summer:
peanut butter &
jelly cupcakes. Ms.
King recently added
gluten-free options,
too, and a whole wheat cookie
option last year took the silver
medal, at the specialty food
awards.Have one with a Sip n’
Soda lemonade from down the
street.

ton, 631-283-9830
Levain Bakery
In 1986, college swimmers
Connie McDonald and Pam
Weekes met at a midtown
YWCA pool – but didn’t make
a splash until they founded
Manhattan’s Levain Bakery.
In 2000, came the Wainscott
locale with on-premises bak-
ing. The bakers are on view
rolling and cutting in the
storefront bay window.
At the counter, the
cookies ($4.00), brioche
and mufns pop out of
garden pots. To help
with lines, said Ms.
Mcdonald, there is a
web cam mounted in
the corner; custom-
ers amuse themselves
with muscle shots,
performance art and “Hi’s”
to family members. 354 Mon-
tauk Highway Wainscott, 631-
537-8570
Beach Bakery Cafe
It brags: “It’s what a European
bakery used to be.” On his
23rd season, owner Simon
Jorna explains why: “All of our
ingredients are fresh, kosher
and we use real Belgian choco-
late.” The bakers, imported
from Holland, all live upstairs.
His usual best-seller is a peach
raspberry pie featured on the
Food Network that goes for
$16.00. A bargain: raspberry-
flled fried croissants at $1.90.
112 Main St, Westhampton
Beach, 631-288-6552
Scoop Du Jour
On any given summer morn-
ing, 15 to 20 people line up
shortly after sunrise for warm,
just-pressed donuts (Scoop
bought the famed Dreesen’s
donut machine and patented
recipe from entrepreneur and
local butcher Rudy Dreesen).
Plain, powdered and cinna-
mon are the usual selections,
and they go fast.
35 Newtown Lane, East Hamp-
ton, 631-329-4883

Round Swamp Farm
It’s all in the family at this 250
year-old farm where rela-
tives still run the day-to-day.
Shoppers 70 or older don’t
have to wait on line. Called by
some the “Bergdorf’s” of farm
stands, prices are hefty, even
for this town, but the ofer-
ings unique, like Bikini muf-
fns, made with veggies, whole
wheat and agave. New this
year: Cowgirl cookies, an oat-
meal, cinnamon and chocolate
chip combo.
184 Three Mile Harbor Road
East Hampton, 631 324-4438
Mary’s Marvelous
It’s not everyday you see a
Mariachi band playing on the
sidewalk in Amagansett vil-
lage. Mary Schoenlein hired
the band last August to thank
her customers and stafers for
a great summer.
“I thought it was fun,” said the
owner, who runs a packed red
and white bakery/luncheon-
ette on Main. The big sellers
are almond croissants at $3.25
apiece and blueberry mufns.
The food preferences of locals
vs. summer people? The sum-
mer crowd “buys a lot more,”
she said.

Even locals who know
every seafood spot from
Westhampton to Wainscott
aren’t up to speed on the
booming Montauk res-
taurant scene. Here, a fast
guide from Eva Karagior-
gas, restaurant curator of
the Gilt Group, New York.
Dave’s Grill
An East End staple for more
than 20 years, it serves
the region’s best butter-
poached lobster roll, and
that says a lot. Start of with
a beer and honey-hoisen
“Chinese” spare ribs on
the deck for a true summer
experience. Make reserva-
tions – they are only taken
day-of. 468 West Lake
Drive, 631-668-9190
The Hideaway
Strong margaritas, fresh
tacos and shots of tequila
topped of with ribs and
brisket have garnered a
cult-like fan base for this
authentic and casual wa-
terside Mexican/BBQ spot.
As for the place’s name, it’s
tucked away behind the
marina. 364 West Lake
Drive, 631-668-6592
Ruschmeyers
Ben Towill and Phil Winsor
of The Fat Radish head up
the kitchen at the “nauti-
cal bohemian” revamp. It
has quickly become this
season’s go-to spot for the
Williamsburg-Malibu set,
but if that scene doesn’t
appeal, go for the famed
bacon cheeseburger,
161 Second House Road,
631-668-2885
The Surf Lodge
Chef Sam Talbot has
proven his post-Top Chef
mettle and made a name
for himself at this hot spot
owned by hotelier Andre
Balazs. The lodge’s menu is
heavy on seafood and local
ingredients and the view
(both of the crowd and the
adjacent lake) is very pret-
ty. 183 South Edgemere

A
rts and Crafts architect
Joseph Greenleaf Thorpe de-
signed many summer cottages
in East Hampton, but none has
become more famous, or perhaps
notorious, than the 1897 shingle-style house
on Lily Pond Lane and West End Road. For
decades, it was home to two of East Hampton’s
most eccentric residents—Jackie Kennedy
Onassis’s aunt and frst cousin, reclusive so-
cialites Edith “Big Edie” Ewing Bouvier Beale
and her daughter, Edith (“Little Edie”).
“Grey Gardens,” the home whose decline
into squalor was both a result and manifesta-
tion of the two women’s unraveling lives, is
legendary. Today, the century-plus-old man-
sion is restored and is the site of parties, archi-
tectural tours and Hamptons charity events
throughout the year. Yet the legacy of “the
Edies” remains—and not only as a result of the
rumored smell of cat urine that still emanates
from the house when it rains.
Is it haunted? Writer Sally Quinn, who
bought the home with her husband, newspa-
per editor Ben Bradlee, not long after Big Edie
died in 1977, said, “I feel the magic they felt
that kept them there.”
Edith Bouvier was born into a New York
family of wealth and privilege in 1895. Her
father was an attorney who later became a
judge. Edie pursued a career as a singer before
marrying Phelan Beale, a future law partner
of her father who was 14 years her senior. The
couple had two sons and a daughter, Little
Edie, who grew up to be her mother’s lifelong
companion.
After buying Grey Gardens with her husband
in the early 1920’s, Big Edie flled the house with
musicians and artists, cultivating a bohemian
lifestyle and eccentric style of dressing that
alienated the elite East Hampton crowd and
embarrassed her disapproving husband.
Phelan left Edie in 1934 and divorced her in
1946 by telegram from Mexico. Little Edie
referred to it as a “fake Mexican divorce” that
the Catholic Church did not recognize.
Edie found herself managing Grey Gardens
alone and in a declining state of mental and
fnancial stability. The gardens of climbing
roses, lavender and phlox grew feral and ivy
covered the house’s facade. In 1952, Edie sent
for Little Edie to return from the city. A beau-
ty, Little Edie never married, though she dated
millionaire Howard Hughes and claimed to
have had proposals from Joe Kennedy Jr. and
J. Paul Getty.
The pair lived in seclusion for many years,
allowing the house to fll with garbage and be
overrun by feas, cats and raccoons. In 1972,
the Beales’s flthy living conditions were
exposed after a series of inspections by the
Health Department that resulted in national
publicity. The town of East Hampton rallied
to evict them. With fnancial help from Ms.
Onassis and Lee Radziwill, the dilapidated
house was restored to a livable condition and
the women were allowed to remain.
The story caught the attention of flmmak-
ers Albert and David Maysles, who spent six
weeks in the house making the documentary
Grey Gardens. The flm was released in 1976 to
wide critical acclaim. In one image, a fur-clad
Little Edie wearing red lipstick and a head-
scarf stares defantly into the camera against
the backdrop of her ramshackle home.
The flm depicts the daily lives of the
mother and daughter as they continued to live
in squalor, bickering about the past, singing
old songs and subsisting on a diet of ice cream
and cat food, which they referred to as pâté. It
is a portrayal that is grotesquely beautiful. The
women are luminous in their eccentricity and
individualism. Yet their co-dependence and
madness is haunting. “It’s very difcult to keep
the line between the past and the present,”
muses Little Edie in the opening scene as she
stares at the tangled garden.
The documentary has since been adapted
into a full-length musical, which won several
Tonys, and into an 2009 HBO flm starring
Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore, which
won six Emmys and two Golden Globes.
After Big Edie’s death in 1977, Little Edie
stayed in the house for two more years,
auctioning of the expensive silverware to
pay the inheritance tax. After refusing bid-
ders who wanted to tear the house down, she
agreed to sell the estate to the Bradlees for
$220,000 on the condition that they maintain
the original structure. Edie was given the
choice to either empty the house herself or to
leave everything behind. She chose the latter.
The Bradlees found a wreckage of old books,
scattered seashells, raccoon skulls and the
bodies of 52 dead cats. Above one bed hung a
birdcage with a single light bulb inside. In the
attic they also found beautiful antiques and a
trunk of the women’s letters. “It was a treasure
trove,” said Ms. Quinn. “I was in such a state of
ecstasy and exhilaration I was hyperventilat-
ing. I started smoking again.”
Today, Martha Stewart lives down the street
and the house is a highlight on garden tours.
But, said Ms. Quinn, a legacy remains. “There’s
something that makes you feel good being in
the house.” o

There’s an old joke that “Nantucket” is
a Native American word for “the island that eats
money.” But residents of this exclusive seaside
colony seem to have enough of it left over
every year to shop for antiques at the veteran
Nantucket Historical Association Antiques
Show. The site this year is a tent at 33 Bartlett’s
Farm Road, but, since this is Nantucket, the
tent is air-conditioned. Events are Aug. 4-7 and
the theme of the Aug. 6 dinner is “Moby Dick.”
Patrons will be entertained by a selection from
Jake Heggie’s opera of the same name. www.
nha.org
“Not an art fair,” the New Art Dealers
Alliance says of its newest, well, “site-specifc
project exhibition.” The last weekend of July,
NADA takes over the Basilica Hudson, a huge
foundry built in 1884 as a forge for railway
wheels. With this industrial cred in tow, the
show will fll 8,000 square feet of indoor space
and over 10,000 square feet outdoors. Chelsea
big names Zach Feuer, James Fuentes and
Derek Eller are a trio of the 40 or so dealers
presenting. Admission is free, and the event
runs July 30 and 31, 11 a.m.–7 p.m. at Basilica
Hudson, 110 South Front Street, near the train
station. Amtrak has regular service to Hudson
out of Penn Station. www.newartdealers.org
Art, antiques, jewelry! On a boat! With a
rooftop bar! If all that doesn’t draw you in,
perhaps the location of the First Annual Art
Newport Fair will: the coastal city’s postcard-
pretty Perry Mill Wharf. After a winter in
Sarasota, Seafair, a giant yacht with art, antique
and jewelry exhibitions on three decks, will dock
in Rhode Island from June 30 through Sept.
5. It’s open daily to the public from 11 a.m. to 7
p.m. and until 10 p.m. on July 4. On Sept. 15,
it sails into Greenwich, Conn., for a few days,
stopping at that city’s Delamar Harbor. The
opening night parties are invitation only, but
regular admission is $15. www.expoships.com
Starting an art fair isn’t easy. (Dealers
can be divas.) Try starting three. The
organizers of artMRKT had their frst show
in San Francisco this past May, have a Texas
Contemporary fair planned for October and
open their frst artMRKT Hamptons on the
weekend of July 14-17. Co-founders Jefrey
Wainhause and Max Fishko are taking
over the Bridgehampton Historical Society
Grounds for a boutique fair showcasing about
three-dozen dealers in living-room-size
spaces. The opening night is a charity beneft
(full disclosure: The Observer is a sponsor);
all proceeds from the $100 ticket go to

At four years old, Art Hamptons is the East
End’s veteran contemporary art fair. More than
70 national and international galleries will
show work this year, July 7-10 in Sayre Park,

Celebrity
Chef Eric Ripert on the groupies, the tension and the fame.
B Y A l e x A n d r A P e e r s
I
n New York City, Eric Ripert is known as a celebrity chef. Among
foodies, he’s known for his Michelin star-studded seafood
restaurant, Le Bernardin. But in the gossipy, buzzy and unforgiving
circles of restaurant insiders, he’s known for something really un-
usual: he has the reputation of being one of the few big-name New York
chefs who is actually faithful to his wife.
A few minutes into meeting him, you realize this is a bit of a shame.
Tall, tall, tall, with an oversize head that foats above his chef’s whites,
plus gray-white hair in a semi-Elvis style that seems to have launched
the ridiculous food-industrywide fashion for midforehead peaks, he’s a
smiling charmer. Spread a little thick, perhaps, but it’s that whole French
thing. It works on diners, as he sweeps, smiling, nodding, through his
midtown eatery. It’s famous, on its best days, if only then, for its almost
E.S.P-like service; the sound of ice water splashing the side of your glass
before you even realized you were about to ask for a refll.
His legend is almost annoying.

NEW CHEFS ARE FLOODING the profes-
sion after watching too many seasons of
Food TV, and, for them, he has some advice:
Don’t buy into the celebrity. This is easy for
him to say, of course. He’s played himself
in several episodes of the HBO series
Treme. When the James Beard Foundation
saluted him in Miami a few years ago, David
Letterman, a Le Bernardin regular, filmed
a tribute. He’s been a frequent guest on the
show, in sketches serving raw beef to unwill-
ing eaters, or having Dave check his fish for
radiation. In April, the late-night legend
hosted a dinner for a rogues’ gallery of
20th-century entertainment—Don Rickles,
Regis Philbin, Steve Martin, Paul Shaffer—
in the private back room of Le Bernardin. “A
meeting of great comedic minds,” bragged
Mr. Philbin on his morning talk show. He
then complained that the secret side door
was locked, forcing him into the indignity of
walking through the public dining room.
Still, Chef Ripert has by and large resisted the
expansion mania that has some chefs involved
in 20 or so eateries from Los Angeles to Macau
to Dubai. He’s formed a couple of partnerships
with Ritz Carlton resorts, sure, and has written
four cookbooks, including one, Avec Eric, that
he’s hawking this summer in a reading near his
Sag Harbor summer home, but he has not made
himself an industry.
And in a world of chefs where treatment of
underlings is often brutal—British chef Gordon
Ramsey’s cries of “You idiot!” are the rule, not
the exception in fne kitchens—Chef Ripert has
a rep as not a screamer. “If the people surround-
ing you are happy, you are happy, so it’s selfsh,”
he said, though he also credits daily meditation
for helping him keep his temper. “I try to do a
little meditation every day, 10 or 15 minutes. I
stop when I lose my focus.” A Buddhist, he once
lectured his anger-management-issues friend
and colleague Chef David Chang at the Rubin
Museum of Art on staf treatment. He summed
up his general advice to other chefs as: “You
don’t have to be nasty; you have to be respectful.”
Not all is sweetness and light, of course. Far
from it. But people don’t really say bad stuf
about him, even of the record—although one
rival noted that “he’s not exactly modest.” The
man’s powerful and well-connected enough that
any negative comments are whispered as if the
city’s air could somehow carry them back to the
wallpapered walls of Le Bernardin. Typical: Said
one TV chef, “Eric’s great, but he didn’t invent
seafood.”
As for his image as not-a-player, it’s not so
hard, he said. “I do not have a line of groupies
waiting outside the side door of Le Bernardin.”
(Really? Check out his tasting table surrounded
by hungry 20-somethings at any given City Har-
vest event.) But “I get recognized,” he granted.
“New York is like a small village where you know
everybody” and they think they know you. But
“it’s very important to separate my private life
from professional life.”
He’s been married 19 years to wife Sondra
and, in the summers, he works in New York dur-
ing the week and joins his family on the Island
on weekends and does the cooking. ”I love my
hammock in the woods,” he said. He’s also fre-
quently spotted at the Harbor-area Zen Sushi,
an endorsement for any seafood restaurant.
It’s hard to remember that it wasn’t long ago
that the chef was an understudy whom every-
body was betting would fail. In 1994, he stepped
up to the plate when Le Bernardin’s executive
chef, Gilbert Le Coze, died unexpectedly. The
next year, at 29, he earned a four-star rating from
The New York Times. His career had started
early: working at age 17 at La Tour d’Argent, then
for Joel Robuchon and later for David Bouley,
who imported him from a top Washington, D.C.,
eatery. It was a lucky and unlikely transition
given the New York food world’s contempt, espe-
cially back then, for its Beltway brethren.
Today, he’s on the board of City Harvest and
involved with charities such as Tibet House,
donating quite a bit of time and money. But he
also courts the press, so the businesses and his
philanthropy do get attention, whether intended
or not. He keeps Chilean sea bass, shark, wild
blue fn tuna and grouper of the ($115 prix-fxe
dinner) menu, and makes a point of talking—a
lot, too much?—about sustainability.
But, for now, he’s just psyched about summer.
“New York is a fantastic city but very tiring.”
Of to the hammock. o
It’s hard to remember
that, not all that long
ago, everyone was
betting he’d fail.

Jack DeLashmet almost got away with it.
He was tiptoeing out of a garden, quietly, so
as not to disturb the naked couple he spot-
ted on the grass, when “I fell backwards over
a stump.” The couple’s greenery ended up
being featured in his new book, Hamptons
Gardens—but who were the frisky lovers?
“Discretion is the better part of valor,” said
the landscape architect, primly.
For 15 years, the Mississippi-born designer
has been playing with the idea of a book about
the area’s gardens that would include both
vintage (shown here) and contemporary pho-
tographs. The project fnally “came to life at a
dinner party, as much in the Hamptons does,”
he noted. The idea got back to book publisher
Martine Assouline, who last month introduced
the tome at the Plaza Hotel.
The fat, pretty book comes at an unusual
time, because when most people think of the
region’s gardens, they still think of “lots of
hydrangea and lots of lawn,” he said, but styles

are changing rapidly. “We’re now gardening on
the bays, beaches, in the laurel woods, former
potato fields, etc.” Landscape architects are
“much more attuned to capturing the spirit
of a place, the ‘genius loci’ of a microclimate
using native plantings.” His book takes a look,
he said, at the groundbreaking designers
(Wolfgang Oehme, James van Sweden, et al.)
who fueled this more natural approach.
Garden design, especially among the
wealthy, can be faddish, of course. Crazily
exotic plants were in vogue in the 50’s and
60’s, and then came the unfortunate rage for
Colorado blue spruce trees, which tend to
“stick out like sore thumbs,” he noted. “No one
uses them anymore, at least if I have anything
to say about it.”
In terms of advice, the author counsels pa-
tience. The great gardens are the ones that are
less rushed, such as Randy Kemper and Tony
Ingrao’s fantastic gardens—“Well, they sat for
a year and just got to know the light, air and lay
of the land before they put spade (or bulldozer)
to earth,” he said. Not everyone is quite that
circumspect, of course. There’s always the
occasional hedged-in hedge-fund person who
“wants it to look like Tuscany by Memorial
Day,” Mr. DeLashmet sighed.
All author’s proceeds from the book go to
God’s Love We Deliver, a well-established New
York charity that “made a huge impact in the
quality of life of one of my closest friends,
Marcus Williams, in the early days of H.I.V./
AIDS in New York,” said Mr. DeLashmet. The
name God’s Love We Deliver, “for me, is ap-
propriate,” he said. o

Last summer, celebrity fit-
ness trainer Sue Fleming led
a popular series of classes at a
vineyard in Southold, where
participants sprinted across the
lawn and bounced on brightly
colored exercise balls to work
up a sweat. The class concluded
with ice-cold mimosas.
This summer she returns to
the Hamptons to teach Buff on
the Beach, a circuit-training
class to be held at Southamp-
ton’s Ponquogue Beach. Laws
limit the activities that may be
held on beaches, so this is one
of only a few opportunities to
work out on the sand. “It’s more
fun being on the beach and a lot
cooler,” said the author of Buff
Brides.

multiuse athletic facility is
running a summer special three-
month memberships for $99. In
addition to a gymnastics studio,
squash and tennis courts and a
ftness center, there are classes.
For kids, there are summer
camps and a new class called ESP
(Explosion Speed and Power), a
bootcamp for grades 7–12.
Drop-in classes cost on average
$10-$20, although packages are
also available, as are occasional
free classes.
Flywheel Sports

Flywheel East Hampton
opened its doors in March, joining
its seasonal Sag Harbor sister. The
new space is open and airy, with
plenty of parking, a boutique and
an amphitheater-style cycling
studio with stadium seating. The
crowd here is athletic (Olympians
like Michelle Kwan hang out at the
Flatiron branch) and the mood
competitive, with impromptu
races.
The E.H. branch will ofer Fly-
Barre, a 60-minute workout that
studio co-founder Ruth Zukerman
said “focuses on taking individual
muscle groups to exhaustion.”
A single ride is $30, although
packages are also available at a
discount.
In Balance Pilates Studio
Sag harbor
The East End’s frst Pilates
studio opened 14 years ago and is
expanding this summer. The new
space includes an adjunct studio
where group classes will be held
daily, including a Pilates lab target-
ing arms, legs and bum, mat classes
and a TRX Tower. It’s a block away
from the beach and overlooks the
water and an old windmill.
“This workout isn’t sweat,
strain and building bulky
muscles. It’s about long, lean core
strength,” said studio director
Lesa Salvani. Private sessions run
$100 hour while group classes
average $40.

Jimmy Minardi, a former pro-
fessional cyclist, has been teach-
ing and training athletes on the
East End since 1990. He places
an emphasis on the outdoors and
encourages students to soak up
their Vitamin D in the sun.
The building blocks of Mr.
Minardi’s training include beach
workouts, outdoor cycling, vin-
yasa weight training and some-
thing called Surfer Yoga. Classes
in it are held at KarmaDeva
Yoga in East Hampton and also
at Lulu Lemon Athletics. The
stability-boosting class is based
on principals of Ashtanga yoga
as well as jujitsu, the Japanese
martial art in which Mr. Minardi
holds a black belt. A single class
of surfer yoga is $25; rates on
other programs vary.

SoulCycle East Hampton,
which opened its doors for the
frst time Memorial Day weekend,
aims to accommodate some of the
overfow from its sister studio in
Bridgehampton. The new E.H.
operation, white-washed and fresh
looking, occupies a former art
gallery in the heart of town.
The label, which also owns
ftness centers in Manhattan and
South Beach, ofers signature
classes that combine cardio
(cycling) with light weight lifting.
Co-founder Julie Rice, who hails
from Los Angeles, says she was
inspired by West Coasters’ love of
exercise and of socializing while
exercising. Kelly Ripa, Brooke
Shields and Tory Burch have
been spotted at the Bridgehamp-
ton SoulCycle.
A single class in the Hamptons
is $36, with prices dropping for
packages. You must reserve a bike
before attending. o

s the Hamptons summer heats up, you’re just 90 miles away
from a perfect beach body – if you walk the whole way out. A
more convenient, though only slightly less painful option,
is to sign up for one of several new programs that are part of
the region’s beefed-up ftness menu this summer. Rivals Soul Cycle and
FlyWheel are both adding new spaces, plus local gyms have oferings that
promise to “sculpt,” “tone,” or result in “exhaustion.”

was sitting at the bar at Mario Batali’s Greenwich Vil-
lage restaurant Otto, waiting for Candace Bushnell.
She was upstairs in her apartment at One Fifth Av-
enue, where she lives with Charles Askergaard, her
tall, handsome princely husband of nine years and a
principal dancer for the New York City Ballet.
One Fifth Avenue is also the title of Candace’s ffth
novel, which my fancée called “so good it hurts.”
“You start on page one and feel like there’s a storm
brewing around each character,” she said the other
day. “And you can sense that they’re all in trouble,
even though most of them have everything going for
them, obviously, living in this fabulous, super-expen-
sive luxurious building. But there’s a cloud hanging over each of
them, a cloud of doom… It’s so good I missed my subway stop and
I didn’t even have a seat and there was no air conditioner. Hint.”
(Our two room dump in Brooklyn lacks enough electrical
power for a second air conditioner and for that reason, she wants
to move immediately. She’s the breadwinner, so that’s that).
Pretending to be reading, I eavesdropped on Batali, who was
fnalizing a deal with a smart, sharp-dressed babe. He clearly
had the upperhand in the convo and didn’t need to use it. They
were likely discussing an upcoming charity dinner featuring Bill
Clinton and Keith Richards.
“Hi George!” Candace said, ofering her rosy cheek for a peck.
She looked my age minus a few years and I looked hers, 53. Her
yellow silk linen top, white jeans, messy blond hair, and vivacity
made me stammer. Before ordering wine and pasta, she signed
the copy of One Fifth Avenue to my fancée, adding “Here’s your
new building!” (As Carrie Bradshaw would say, Ha!)
You know those New Yorkers you’ve vaguely known
for years, decades, forever? You had some laughs with them at
Elaine’s, shared a cab downtown once, a smoke in Tina Brown’s
courtyard, exchanged tipsy confessions at Lot 61, Socialista, and
the Beatrice Inn. Now you are Facebook friendly and when they
promptly return your e-mails, it makes you feel happy, like you
really have made it in New York after all. Same thing when they
seem glad to see you at a party, say your frst name, introduce
you to whomever they’re with—but that’s about the extent of it.
They don’t exactly ask you to join them at their table, do they?
No, and there’s a perfectly good reason why they don’t. They
are on the permanent A list, and you are somewhere between C
and Z. These pecking order distinctions are there for a reason
and must be maintained and respected. For instance, if some-
one on the A list were to be seen talking too long or, God forbid,
photographed with an inappropriate member of lower orders
from the land of C-Z, that could cost them major points and pave
the way to fnancial ruin, madness, chaos, zombies, and then no
more invitations to Cinema Society or Peggy Siegal screenings.
But with the A-lister in question, this status chasm has never
mattered because you’ve always admired the hell out of this
person and you want to keep it that way and keep them elusive,
unattainable, just out of reach. For them to say “Hi George! You
know Denis Leary, right? George is a reporter from…” is more
than enough to put a bounce in your step. You’ve still got it, you
think. You met Denis Leary, therefore you’re still a force to be
reckoned with. You exist. So you don’t want to push it.
Also, these superior beings have earned their success and
position by dint of talent, hard work, and you haven’t. You’re a
misft who failed upwards a few notches since your salad days as
assistant editor at Avenue magazine (fred after six months) and
then in the research department at House Beautiful (fred after
two days).
So if things ever shifted so much as a single letter—if suddenly
they more than mildly approve of you and, say, asked you to their
dinner party, seated you next to Andre Balazs, Anne Hearst,
Cynthia Rowley or Nixon—well, of course you’d be thrilled to
make the cut. And maybe a little bummed, too—because you’d
feel old, depressed, defated, and think, Was it really worth it
climbing your way into this room? Then, remembering all those
fancied slights and very real snubs, you’d drink too much, cause
a ruckus and storm out.
That’s sort of what it’s been like with Candace Bushnell and
me. Not really. A little. And that’s okay! In 1993 I fact-checked
her frst article for the Observer, about drug addled expats try-
ing to stay sober in Minneapolis. After that, I vividly recall being
in her presence a couple dozen times at restaurants, nightclubs,
Christmas and book parties like the one I covered in South-
ampton during the summer of 2001, for her second novel Four
Blondes.
Lounging in the Hiltons’ backyard that night, I smoked and
yukked it up with Candace and some of her friends who teased
me about dating a sexy older women. They cracked a few dia-
per jokes, which kinda sucked, but it was all good because I was
breathing the same sweet air as certifable A-listers, riding high
and things were only gonna get better.
Despite having been bucked of a horse and breaking her
pelvis three months ago, Candace went riding that morning near
her house in Kent, Connecticut, where I spent three years….nev-
ermind. Kent isn’t far from Candace’s hometown, Glastonbury.
The Bushnells lived in an old Colonial house on Main Street. At
eight months old, she would walk right out the screen door over
to the house next door. The lady there had a cat. Candace was a
smiley kid who wanted to see the world. She would stand next to
the TV set and do the same performance number.
She and her two sisters put on horrible marionette shows for
neighborhood kids. They’d fnd stuf in their mother’s costume
box--a gold hat, gold jacket, tap shoes, a top hat, a megaphone,
pompoms—and do “Arabian Princess” and “The Nutcracker.”
On the frst day of kindergarten Candace was bullied by ffth

graders who insisted that she liked a ffth
grade boy. She thought, I’ve never seen this
kid, I’m four years old, get of my case! Even as
a youngster, she felt like she’d been plunged
into a mystifying alternative universe where
women are second class citizens and nobody
was afraid to make that distinction clear. It
was as if everyone had cue cards reading “This
Is What Girls can Do” and “This Is What Boys
Can Do” and nobody thought it wrong and no-
body questioned it, which made Candace an-
gry--and not knowing how to express it made
her more angry.
Being on the swim team was tough. The
pool was 60 degrees and she had to be there for
practice at seven A.M. and swim her 10 laps. If
you didn’t get into the pool like everyone else
you would have looked like an unbelievable
sissy, so no one complained. Candace was not
a particularly good swimmer or diver.
She was a somewhat better equestrian.
First she had a black pony named Minnie—
only eleven hands tall but that little pony
could jump three feet. She had a pony called
Eudora—a great pony—and then a horse
called Harry that would buck her of every
day. There was a sense of freedom, though, be-
ing on horses.
By then Candace was reading C.S. Lewis,
Roald Dahl, Agatha Christie, her grandmoth-
er’s paperback romances. She knew she want-
ed to be a novelist and began producing fction
at age eight. Nobody else in Glastonbury did
anything creative except for a friend’s East-
ern-European mother with royal
blood who painted and opened
young Candace’s eyes to the idea
that there was another way to
think and be and live your life.
Candace’s mother was a very
elegant, wonderfully dressed lady
who embodied the woman who had
it all and did it all before there was
such a label. She started her own
travel agency with her best friend
who lived across the street and it
was very successful. Mrs. Bushnell
still did all the cooking, cleaning,
and decorating. There was no nanny, no maid.
At the time, everyone was very upset with
the hippies who were ruining the country.
Candace became fascinated with the con-
sciousness-raising and feminist movements,
which represented the larger world that she
wanted to be a part of. You can get an idea of
what her teens were like from reading her last
two novels, The Carrie Diaries and Summer In
The City.
My fancée, who read both books over the
same long weekend, explained why she loved
them so much: “They read really easily, they’re
fun, with great dialogue and wisdom sprinkled
in there.” (“A writer must be fearless. A writer
has to be like a clawed animal.” “New York is
a mountain, with a few successful people like
Bernard at the top, and a mass of dreamers
and strivers like me at the bottom”) “Summer
in the City reintroduced me to a youthful and
innocent time when I was so in love with NYC
and I haven’t felt like that in such a long time.
It made me want to move back to Manhattan-
-well, maybe the Manhattan of the Eighties
and Nineties.”
CandaCe moved to New York in 1978,
attended acting school for a couple months,
hoping that doing TV commercials would
support a writing career. After working as an
assistant at Ladies Home Journal and Good
Housekeeping, she was hired as a staf writer at
Self, where she fled stories about everything
from microwaves to fashion designers.
For a while she slept on a foam mattress in a
studio on East 74th Street that had no kitchen
sink. She and her roommate would eat hot
dogs and chicken wings from Kentucky Friend
Chicken. The pad was robbed. They took Can-
dace’s ratty old mink coat. But it didn’t matter.
There was optimism in the air and Manhattan
was a fun city back then. Although Candace
was a bit of a nerd, she made the scene at Stu- A

have to kind of be willing to

that’s what it’s really about.

dio 54, Xenon, Odeon, Indochine, befriended
Jay McInerney, Morgan Entrekin, Bret Eas-
ton Ellis, and dated Gordon Parks.
She managed to survive on as little as $2000
a month, but it was a struggle, even frighten-
ing at times. During one extra dark period in
the early 90’s, Candace thought about suicide
and wondered if she should do something else
for a living.
“I’m so glad I didn’t stop writing because
before the Observer (she started the “Sex and
the City” column in 1994), it seemed like my
career had taken a turn for the worse,” she re-
called. “I was writing pieces but a couple didn’t
get accepted. You put in two months and then
they say, Ohhhh, it doesn’t quite work’, and
then you don’t get paid! I mean, imagine any
other profession where at the end of the job
someone can decide whether or not they want
to pay you. Sometimes as a writer you have
to kind of be willing to go in over your head. I
think that’s what it’s really about. You take the
risk.”
What else motivated Candace to stick with
writing?
“You know, George, people are usually
writers because they think there’s something
wrong with the culture and there’s something
that bothers them enough to embark on this
ridiculous endeavor
of becoming a writer,
which is not guaran-
teed in any way. So you’ve got something to
say. Usually it comes from anger, hidden anger
or despondency.
“I was angry at the world,” she said. “I was
angry that pretty girls get ahead. I was angry
that men loved women with big large breasts.
I was angry about everything they’re angry
about on Dr. Phil and Oprah. I was angry that
men preferred blondes. I was angry about ev-
ery cultural stereotype that the culture shoved
down your throat, and how if you didn’t look
and act a certain way, forget it! You were noth-
ing. You were over.”
Candace’s book tour is winding down now.
One major highlight occurred at the Union
Square Barnes & Noble, where two cute girls—
who loved everything Sex and the City and wore
T-shirts reading “I’m With Big” and “I’m a
Carrie”—couldn’t contain themselves. “I ended
up answering a couple of their questions and
they were so enthusiastic,” Candace recalled.
“One of them was literally crying in the audi-
ence—she said, ‘You’re so nice! You answered
our questions!’ So it makes you feel good.”
So did the literary festival Candace at-
tended in Sri Lanka where she was treated like
Angelia Jolie. This experience and the “the
rise of the Sex and the City woman” came up
during her appearance on MSNBC’s Morning
Joe.
“It’s about women who fnd themselves
somewhat freed from traditional roles,”
Candace told me. “There are many countries
where if you’re not married by the age of 22,
that really is a problem for your parents. But
the Sex and the City woman is very tied in with
women’s economic independence and the
scary thing is, for good or bad, the Sex and the
City woman cannot exist without feminism
and fnancial independence.”
“We went through all of those things that
women in other countries are discovering for
the frst time,” she continued. “It’s the idea
that, Whoa, maybe I can have it all. And when
women have some economic independence,
it also gives them more sexual freedom and
more freedom in terms of choosing their
mate. They’re less likely to rely on their par-
ents to make an arranged marriage, less likely
to want their parents to do that.”
On her second glass of wine, Candace held
forth on baby boomers, kids today, religion,
“The Sex and the City woman
is very tied in with women’s
economic independence and the
scary thing is, for good or bad, the
Sex and the City woman cannot
exist without feminism and
fnancial independence.”

barbarism, Jane Eyre, Evelyn Waugh’s Eng-
land, Elaine Dundy and Kenneth Tynan,
and some oddball characters she used to
see around town—among them Radioman,
Roller Girl, and Ugly George. Then there was
the fame-haired anti-porn zealot who would
yell “fght back!” while hoisting the infamous
woman-head-frst-in-a-meat-grinder cover
of Hustler magazine. If this radical redhead is
still around, someone should tell her she’s the
inspiration for a very important character in
Summer In The City.
Candace has already begun work on her
next novel. So far she’s come up with a “ton”
of characters, the title (the Two Mrs. Stones),
written the prologue, knows the ending.
“Now there’s just a lot of swirling around,”
she said of the creative process. “It’s like being
in a little tornado, you know, there’s a witch on
the bicycle—doo-de-doo-de-doo-doo, doo-de-doo-
de-doo-doo! And the house is going like this and
then, ‘Dorothy, come home! And then there’s
probably a plane crash. Ka-boom! All kinds of
things are going on in that tornado and it’s try-
ing to make that tornado into a thunderstorm, a
very powerful thunderstorm of the moment.”
It was six p.m. and Jeanine Pepler, Candace’s
publicist and our mutual friend, reminded
her about the ballet. Charles was appearing
in Balanchine’s Jewels, which fgures into the
plot of One Fifth Avenue. By
coincidence I was going, too,
so I innocently wondered if I
could accompany…unless she
was already…?
Yes, she was going with the
McInerneys. “Do you want a
ride?”
“If that’s okayyyy.”
“You could come uptown. The McInerneys
have a car. They’re coming.”
“I don’t want to complicate the evening in any
way.”
“No!” said Jeanine. “Georgie, it’s totally fne!”
“The only thing is I have to go home and
change.”
She had time for a few more. Does she dis-
like it when women are called “crazy” or
“emotional”?
“I do. But time passes and all those things
that used to set one of don’t so much any
more. But there’s a dismissiveness. People are
dismissive towards women and their accom-
plishments. I think it’s deeply embedded.”
Hasn’t she had an enormous efect on
the culture and done some consciousness-
raising?
“George, I don’t know.”
Jeanine believes so: “One by her books, sec-
ond by how she’s lived her life, she’s allowed
women to feel that it’s okay to be without a
man, okay for them not to get married—or
delay getting married and having children. It
doesn’t have to be the frst priority for a wom-
an in her 20’s and it used to be.
“Candace waited until she was 43 to get
married. I am 43, I am not married. She said
to me, ‘Honey! Just build your business, take
care of yourself, exercise, be smart, make
some money, and it will all work out.’”
“Well, we don’t know that,” said Candace.
“Nothing ever works out in the end because
everyone dies. But young women in New York
have a very diferent attitude. They’re very so-
phisticated. They’re not desperate.”
Candace fnished her wine. “One of the
things that really has changed is young wom-
en are very confdent, and they aren’t willing
to put up with a lot of crap,” she said. “And
they really do believe that they don’t need a
man. And they really do have the confdence
to develop themselves, certainly in New York
City. I can’t think of any time coming across a
young woman who says, Oh I have to get mar-
ried. I come across the opposite. I come across
women who say, You know, I really have to
work on my career, make my money, and then
I’ll get married.”
Did Candace think she had anything to do
with that?
“I hope so. I don’t know. I would hope so.
They’re not desperate. They have a very dif-
ferent attitude.”
I ended up taking the subway to Lincoln
Center. I had to meet someone by the foun-
tain anyway. During the frst intermission,
Candace introduced me to Denis Leary and
his lovely wife, Ann. After less than a minute
of jokes and pleasantries, I made an early exit
and kept a safe distance from the A listers dur-
ing the second intermission.
I loved the ballet. It was the complete op-
posite of everything barbaric in the world and
Charles was great. I wanted to tell him that but
decided against going backstage, even though
Candace invited me to. No need to push it. o

RAISE YOUR GLASS,
New York
Explosive growth, stif competition,
changing tastes shake the L.I. wine business
By Pritha Dasgupta
I
t’s been nearly 40 years since Long Island wine’s found-
ing couple Alex and Louisa Hargrave planted their first vines.
Today, three dozen varieties of grape are grown in the region, at
more than 50 vineyards, a boom that surprises even the people
fueling it.
Most of those wineries are attention-hungry adolescents,
and they, and the Long Island wine industry, face growing
pains. There’s increased competition and regulation, shrinking resources
and the region has a reputation, deserved or otherwise, for producing
crisp, clear, food-friendly reds but not much else. Output is still tiny.
Annual production of the Long Island wine industry is approximately
500,000 cases, equal to the product of a single decent-sized winery in
California. Many New York restaurants prefer the older names, and have
long-standing profitable relationships with them. Laws and high costs
currently limit where wineries can ship without using an outside distribu-
tor. A bill under consideration in Washington, D.C. would be even more
restrictive. With farmland scarce and real estate developers competing
for it, aspiring winemakers are increasingly choosing to make “negociant”
wines, using fruit from other sources.
We talked to more than a dozen of the region’s wine businesses and
learned that making it work is a hustle. Jamesport Vineyards, in addition
to producing and selling wine, hosts weddings, Friday night bonfires, a
raw bar, cheese tastings and its “Jazz on the Vines.” “We’ve started…trying
to do diferent things to generate business,” John Miniaci, an accounts
manager, said, adding that the events are a significant source of revenue.
Wine kegs, he confided, are their next big thing.
California-born Christopher Tracy, winemaker at Channing Daugh-
ters, one of the East End’s more successful, said there are rewards to the
life. “Not only do we live in a beautiful place on Earth but we get to do
something that is delicious, reflects who we are and where we’re from. I
feel particularly lucky.”
Here a look at a handful of the East End’s vineyards:

Shinn Estate Vineyards
Established: 1998
Owners: Barbara Shinn and David Page
Winemaker: Anthony Nappa
Acres Planted: 20
Annual Case Production: 6,000
This young, compact, husband-and-wife op-
eration, a little ways of the main wine path,
is unique: it is the frst Long Island vineyard
to also ofer a bed-and-breakfast. And the
couple is devoted to 100 percent organic and
biodynamic farming techniques.
In addition to not using any chemical fertil-
izers and instead preferring to compost, the
Shinn-Page team also produces 100 percent
of the electricity used, courtesy of a solar sys-
tem and a wind turbine. Plant species on the
farm include crimson clover (which attracts
bees), Alice White clover (builds nitrogen in
the soil) and blackberry plants (which attract
benefcial insects). Thanks to the 20 acres of
natural meadow on which the vineyards sit,
the farm is full of ground-loving birds, rabbits
and bugs that eliminate the need for insec-
ticides, they said. The couple also has dogs,
cats, chickens and bees.
As for the inn contained in the 1880’s
homestead (renovated in 2007) on the
vineyard property, Ms. Shinn is enthusiastic
about its unanticipated popularity—100 per-
cent weekend occupancy. Ms. Shinn bragged
that people “love the idea of staying in the
middle of a vineyard on a quiet road.”
Palmer Vineyards
Established: 1986
Owner: The Palmer family
Winemaker: Miguel Martin
Acres Planted: 110
Annual Case Production: 10,000
Since founder Robert Palmer’s death in 2009,
daughter Kathy has taken over as general
manager and she, along with her two sisters,
maintains business as usual at the winery.
The winemaker is agricultural engineer
Miguel Martin, whose career has taken
him all over the world. “Long Island is
very diferent from any other place that
I have been,” Mr. Martin said. “It has a
unique microclimate that is very challeng-
ing … The wines here are fruit-driven with
well-balanced acidity,” Mr. Martin said. “In
California, the wines are more structured
and have a higher alcohol content. The wines
are better-balanced on Long Island.”
The sustainability trend has hit Palmer.
The vines are covered in nets, providing them
with protection from harmful birds. But owls,
falcons and bats are welcome, and nests have
been set up around the farm for them.
Paumanok Vineyards
Established: 1983
Owner: Charles and Ursula Massoud
Winemaker: Kareem Massoud
Acres Planted: 72
Annual Case Production: 9, 000
One cold fall day in 1979, Charles Massoud
sat in front of the freplace, perusing The
New York Times. Sipping a glass of cabernet
sauvignon, he came across an article talk-
ing about grape-growers and winemakers
on Long Island. This revelation took him by
surprise. A veteran winemaker from his years
working for I.B.M. in Kuwait —“If you wanted
to drink wine, you had to make it,” said Mr.
Massoud—he and his wife had seen the island
just once and had never thought of it as a viable

winemaking region. What followed was the
beginning of one of the North Fork’s oldest
vineyards.
Paumanok Vineyards, named after the
Algonquin word meaning “place of tribute,”
quickly rose to stardom, having its inaugural
wine tasting at high-end wine shop Sherry
Lehmann, a rare treat for established wineries
let alone ones just starting to come into their
own. Their Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc made
it all the way to the White House, being served at
a dinner celebrating NATO’s 50th anniversary.
Now, 21 years after Mr. Massoud quit I.B.M.
to work on the farm full-time, he and his wife
are “little by little pulling out” and delegating
more to their sons. “They’ll probably take it
further” than we were able to. “They’re very
ambitious,” he said with a smile.
Sparkling Pointe
Established: 2003
Owners: Tom and Cynthia Rosicki
Winemaker: Gilles Martin
Acres Planted: 30
Annual Case Production: 4,000-plus
Long Island’s only winery dedicated exclu-
sively to sparkling wine, Sparkling Pointe
makes all of its wines using the classic
French method of producing Champagne,
called méthode champenoise. This produc-
tion method, while authentic, is extremely
long and requires a minimum of three years
to do. “It’s long, it’s difcult, it’s expensive,”
said general manager Michael Falcetta,
ultimately calling it “a labor of love.” He
added: “[Three years] is a long time to wait

A tasting room in the French Manor style

opened in 2009. Two fags fy outside the
winery: a French and a Brazilian, and in the
winery’s annual celebration of Carnaval,
bossa nova bands and samba queens adorned

band also entertains guests weekly from
mid-June to Labor Day.
Jamesport Vineyards
Established: 1981
Owners: Ronald Goerler, Ann Marie Goerler,
and Ronald Goerler Jr.
Winemaker: Ronald Goerler Jr.
Acres Planted: 60
Annual Case Production: 7,000
The walls of this vineyard’s oak-paneled
tasting room are covered in photographs,
awards and press; behind the bar is a chalk-
board with a hand-drawn map of Jamesport
Vineyards. One of the plots is named Sarah’s
Hill, taking its name from the younger
Goerler’s daughter. The name is also used as
a label for select wines. The auxiliary prop-
erty boasts a chicken farm that produces
and sells fresh eggs to interested passersby.
Jamesport is unique in its production of
rosé-style sparkling wine, which not many
vineyards on Long Island include in their
repertoire. And their upscale 2007 Petit
Verdot was name-checked in the March 2010
issue of Food & Wine magazine: “Who knew
Petit Verdot from Long Island could be this
intense?’”
Wölfer Estate Vineyard
Established: 1988
Owners: The Estate of Christian Wölfer
Winemaker: Roman Roth
Acres Planted: 55
Annual Case Production: 22,000
Founded by the late Christian Wölfer in 1988,
the vineyard’s frst chardonnay vines went
down in 1988, followed in 1990 by the frst mer-
lot vines. Since then, the vineyard has grown to
house seven varietals and to become one of the
most successful wineries on Long Island, of-
fering rarities such as Trebbiano and Vignoles.
Contributing to the success of the business are
the private wine club-only events, all located
within the beautiful Tuscany-inspired prem-
ises. Dark metal, cushioned chairs and cozy
cofee tables line the stone-foored, canopied
Wölfer Estate Vineyard.

Orange-washed interior walls and marble gray

The atmosphere was created by the late Mr.
Wölfer, who was inspired by trips made to Eu-
rope during the vineyard’s early days. “He didn’t
want to build a shrine to wine,” said winemaker
Roman Roth. “He wanted the real feel and went
out of his way to get [that].”
Wölfer ’s wine club currently has over 1,100
members and partnerships with the New York
Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera and the
New York City Ballet, which allows entrance
to wine club members at private patron-level
events.
The Lenz Winery
Established: 1978
Owner: Peter and Deborah Carroll
Winemaker: Eric Fry
Acres Planted: 70
Annual Case Production: 9,000
Lenz has perhaps some the most mature
plants on the island, and a wide menu of
onsite events. One of their most successful
is Dinner in the Vines, an outdoor commu-
nity dinner by a local chef, prepared using
local ingredients and served alongside Lenz
wines. Attendance has seen a 234% growth
in two years.
Lenz’s other signature event, started
earlier this year, is a tented farmer’s market.
“We are farmers,” consultant Dorothy-Dean
Thomas declared. “Lenz [is] technically
a farm stand. [The market] is a complete
picture of what local agriculture out here
can really ofer. “We’re really promoting the
idea that we’re farmers. We’re a business that
grows something on the land and turns it into
a product to sell.”
Pellegrini Vineyards
Established: 1982
Owner: Joyce and Bob Pellegrini
Winemaker: Tom Drodz
Acres Planted: 76
Annual Case Production: 10,000
Bob Pellegrini has both a Manhattan graphic
design frm and a veteran Long Island winery
that bears his name, and he commutes. At one
point, he said, “I didn’t know where my socks
were, in which apartment.” But the chaos is
worth it to him.
Mr. Pellegrini’s love afair with wine can
be traced to his early days as a wine collector
and, even further back, to his grandfather, who
used to make wine in his own cellar. Somehow,
without really meaning to, Mr. Pellegrini ended
up with 76 acres planted and seven diferent
varietals to his name, as well as a dessert wine
blend that he is especially fond of.
Pellegrini was the frst vineyard to host
weddings on Long Island. Although they once
did up to 20 weddings a year, competition from
other wineries also ofering their lands as a
wedding venue has halved that number.

Macari Vineyards
Established: 1995
Owners: Joseph Macari Sr. and Katherine
Macari
Winemaker: Kelly Urbanik
Acres Planted: 200
Annual Case Production: 14,000

When the Macaris started their business
in 1995, “the headlines in the papers read:
‘They’re Thinking Too Big,’” recalled current
show-runner (along with her husband) Alex-
andra Macari. This huge estate, which grows
10 varieties of grape, was in the family for 40
years before Joseph Macari Sr. decided to move
his family out to Long Island in 1994 and begin
his first attempt at planting a vineyard. He and
his wife put down 60 acres of vines, the largest
planting that Long Island had ever seen. There
were hurdles: “Finding the right type of people
to work [the vineyards] was very dif cult,” Mrs.
Macari says. “Most of the people in those days
were not qualified.”
Today, the vineyard employs approximately
45 people and Mrs. Macari and her husband.
Both wear many hats. “One day I’m pouring
wine behind the bar, [another day] I’m dealing
with the wholesale division. It’s nonstop but
great.”
Martha Clara Vineyards
Established: 1995
Owner: Robert Entenmann and Jacqueline
Entenmann
Winemaker: Juan Eduardo Micieli-Martinez
Acres Planted: 102
Annual Case Production: 16,000-17,000

The Entenmanns, of doughnut fame, sold the
family bakery business in the 1970’s, moving on
to new experiences. Robert Entenmann, a son
of the family matriarch, Martha Clara, pur-
chased a potato farm on the North Fork soon
after and turned it into a horse farm. When
his neighbors’ properties slowly transformed
into vineyards, Mr. Entenmann decided to
follow suit. In 1995, the first acres of vines were
planted; 16 years later, the original 18 have
given way to 102 acres of 14 grape varietals.
According to winemaker Juan Edu-
ardo Micieli-Martinez, the business remains
down to earth. “The old dogma of the wine
industry is ‘My wine is better than yours,’ nose
in the air, but it’s not like that here. We’re very
inviting.” To pets, too, at its annual Vines and
Canines event. Pet food collected in lieu of
admission is donated to local animal shelters. o Macari Vineyards .

Academy Award-
winning producer
Michael Lynne can
rattle of, pretty eas-
ily, the many ways that
winemaking is like
Hollywood: “They are
both creative exercises
but have to be run as busi-
nesses. Some elements of
[both] are not controllable
by anyone—sometimes
events can conspire with
you, and sometimes they can conspire against you,” he said.
And, worst of all, the blistering critical reaction of a handful of
people can ruin the commercial chances of work that literally
took years to complete.
“You have to have a pretty thick skin,” explained Mr. Lynne,
of his dual careers. But “these are all pieces of a puzzle that,
when you put it all together, you come up, from time to time,
with a great flm and, from time to time, with a great wine.”
He’s an expert at the frst, a relative newbie at the second. Mr.
Lynne’s Bedell Cellars, a 30-year-old estate located in the North
Fork, wasn’t even for sale a dozen years ago, when he decided
that he had to have it. In retrospect, the moviemaker—best
known for executive producing the Lord of the Rings trilogy—
admits that the dream was “relatively naïve. The truth is, I was
in a position to be able to aford to do it. I thought that it would be
something that I could put some of my nonprofessional energy
into.”
His professional energy, meanwhile, had gone into
developing New Line Cinema with business partner
and company creator Bob Shaye. There, they became
famous for some unconventional strategies, like
preselling international distribution rights and the
unprecedented simultaneous production of the three
Rings movies. More highbrow, and featuring fewer
trolls, the studio produced and distributed About
Schmidt, Magnolia, Shine, Seven and Hairspray, plus
the lucrative Nightmare on Elm Street series.
“When you work very hard on something, you care
about it and you want everyone to love it,” Mr. Lynne
said. “You have to understand that people’s tastes are
diferent. You have to follow your own instincts about
what you believe is the right thing to do and hope that
brings you to enough people who agree with you. The
joy of creating what works, whether it’s wine or mov-
ies, is pretty much the same.”
When he frst went shopping ,Mr. Lynne, now 68,
looked for wineries in the usual places: Italy, France
and California. A friend’s recommendation led him to
the North Fork, where he began a tasting tour. Eventu-
ally, he said, he became “very engaged with the region
and what the wineries were attempting to do at that
point in time.”

wine
His visit to Long Island “triggered the thought that, if I really
wanted to own a winery and a vineyard, it would be great if I
could do that essentially in our own backyard.” (Mr. Lynne and
his family own a house in East Hampton as well as a place in
New York, along with a world-class collection of contemporary
art.) After purchasing Corey Creek Vineyards (which, to this
day, has vines and a tasting room but no winery), he contin-
ued searching.
“I was committed to making wine on the premises,” the
producer remembered. “It became apparent to me that the
most attractive, exciting place with the winemaker who had
brought the most to the region and understood it the best at
the time was Bedell Cellars and Kip Bedell.”
The founding winemaker took convincing. But, much
like in another Academy Award-winning flm, Mr. Lynne
“made me an ofer that was really hard to refuse,” Mr. Bedell
recalled (reported at the time to be $5 million, a record for
a Long Island winery). “He bought everything: the land, the
wine inventory. It was really a win-win situation.” Said Mr.
Lynne of the deal: “He understood that I was prepared to
make the investment in Bedell that would take it to the next
place.”
It doesn’t hurt the distribution and visibility of Bedell
wines that the owner and some of his friends serve them at
their own gatherings. There have been some commercial and
critical hits in the bunch: an acclaimed 2005 merlot blend, and
a 2008 cabernet franc that was named New York Wine & Food
Classic’s “Best Red Wine in New York” in 2010. Wine Spectator
magazine credited Bedell with “arguably the best track record
for Merlot on Long Island.”
Despite the duties of his current day job as head of Unique
Features, Mr. Lynne said he remains constantly in contact
with the winery and keeps informed of its goings-on. “At least
fve or six times a week, I’m on the phone with someone at
Bedell,” Mr. Lynne said. He allows for fnal decisions on the
winemaking process to be moderated by his two winemak-
ers, Mr. Bedell and head winemaker Richard Olsen-Harbich.
They’re “very conscious about the idea of wines that truly
refect the nature of the growing conditions of the region,”
Mr. Lynne said. “Our wines have a very pure and natural
taste and aromas that … refect the land and the sea.”
Bedell’s success, Mr. Lynne believes, comes from the
philosophy “that there’s a connection between art, wine and
food.” And Hollywood. o

Scarlett O’Hara
Tristan Tzara
And Jimmy Carter
Who drank sparkling water
Francis Picabia
Miuccia Prada
Saint Frida Kahlo
Kiri te Kanawa
John McCracken
Truman Capote
And the Illuminati
Getting fighty and naughty
More cocktails for each!
Now let’s all start partying
Down on the beach!
Who’s persona non grata
Down on the beach?
Who is banned from the party?
Who’s not on the list?
Paris Hilton,
Any Tea Party
Except the Mad Hatter’s
Prof. Moriarty
Anybody called Simon
Except Simon de Pury
Columnists
With lying bylines
And lilac eyeliner
Who kiss and diss.
‘But you promised and promised
I’d be on the list!’
You won’t be missed
You’re hardly martyrs
You’re just masochists
It’s hard to resist
Being a bit of a tarter
Down on the beach

What is this vision?
From over the sea?
A giant white yacht, she hits the spot
A bright apparition, a nifty addition
She’s a humdinger, a Lulu, a peach
She’s every possible fgure of speech
But what perplexes us down on the beach
Is why they come here? Who can they be?

Vanity Fair’s taking photographs
Down on the sand
They found a power couple
He’s plump and she’s supple
They’re having lots of laughs
He’s fondling her hand
She’s fashing a nipple
He has an old face
She has a cold face,
But they’ll get into boldface
Perhaps a whole paragraph
So, we quite understand
The white ship is foating
Like a goal on the Bay
There’s dancing on deck. We hear music play.
We’re sure, we’ve been spotted.
They’ll be coming to join us
Quite soon they’ll be coming
In Glimmering White Dinghies
They’ll dance at our party
Then they’ll take us away
Now comes the sun set
Down on the beach
It’s hilariously trashy
All greens, golds, and purples
That turn the sand ashen
The beach is a fun fair
Extraordinary freworks
Whoosh right above us
Day bright above us
Until the sky black ends
So now my party
Has really gotten started
We don’t mean to be slacken
Which is when we get started
Down on the beach
The white yacht is departing
Its sails out of reach
Beyond the horizon
We’re wholly dumbfounded
We’re really downhearted
No dinghies are coming
We’re stuck at my party
Down on the beach

The beautiful people
Start drifting of early.
The men on the gate are sullen and useless
The barmen move slowly, the waiters are surly
The beautiful hatcheck is sad eyed and listless
It’s quite a fasco
Down on the beach

What a dire morning after
Down on the beach
An ugly aftermath
I hear harsh laughter
And hacking coughing
Rustling in the dune grass
Some lie inertly
Each next to each
It’s a master class
For sociopaths
I’m done with roving
There’ll be no more loving
There’ll be no more parties
Ever on ever

ndy Warhol’s favorite
voice was Jackie
O’s. Why? “It didn’t
mater what she said;
she spoke in a whisper,”
explained Jef Gordon,
former co-owner of the
Greene Street Recording Studio, sometime
headquarters of the hip-hop music industry
in the 1980’s. With a personal afection for
Warhol—he knew the artist—and the sound
of his era in mind, Mr. Gordon has amassed
an exhibition/installation of visual and audio
art: “15 Minutes: Homage to Andy Warhol.”
The unusual exhibit, opening at the Pollock-
Krasner House and Study Center Aug. 4 and
running through October, will feature the
works of 17 artists who either knew the pop-
art master or were inspired by him.
“It’s a look-and-listen trip,” said co-curator
Mr. Gordon, that’s illustrating “the parallels
between visual art and sound.” Warhol, he
noted, wrote on the topic and was “obsessed
with recording people himself. He’d walk
around with a tape recorder.”
For the Warhol project, Mr. Gordon and co-
curator and painter Path Soong approached
mainly artists who had a relationship and a
history with Warhol. One work in the show, for
example, is a silkscreen of a 1966 photograph of
Warhol and Bob Dylan taken by Nat Finkelstein,
a regular at the artist’s legendary production
space, the Factory. In typical Warhol fashion,
there is a story behind the image that has
become part of contemporary art lore:
“Dylan did not want to do a screen test when
he came to the Factory. He was not happy,” said
Mr. Gordon. “You can see it in his expression
in Nat’s photograph. He told Andy he could
pay him for the screen test with the ‘Double
Elvis’ print which Andy was showing him.”
The deal cut, Dylan “strapped it to the car and
drove away.” Does the musician still have it?
No comment, but Mr. Dylan did contribute to
the exhibition a track of his song “When I Paint

My Masterpiece,” plus a silkscreen of the “Self
Portrait” he painted and used as the cover for his
1971 album of the same name
Other featured artists and/or Warhol Factory
stalwarts include Billy Name, Brigid Berlin,
pioneer dealer Ivan Karp (one of the many
dealers to claim he discovered Warhol, but
one with a good case) and Warhol Foundation
honcho Vincent Fremont; Mr. Gordon and Ms.
Soong even tracked down Ultra Violet (Warhol
gave the actress her name), who starred in early
Warhol flms and was an extra in Midnight
Cowboy.
Each of these artists contributed both
an audio and a visual work to the show.
Photographer Christopher Makos gave Warhol
his frst camera; his image featured in the show
is a picture he took of Warhol kissing John
Lennon in 1978. Poet and musician Patti Smith’s
contributions include a poem about Warhol’s
muse Edie Sedgwick. Mr. Gordon’s own audio
contribution is a 15-minute recording of an
interview Warhol gave where he responded in
his notorious monosyllabic style. “I edited out
the questions so all you hear are 15 minutes of
yesses and noes,” said Mr. Gordon.
Pollock-Krasner House director Helen
Harrison considers the historic space an ideal
setting for the show. “Pollock is to abstract
expressionism as Warhol is to pop art,” said Ms.
Harrison. “These two artists, both from working
class roots, took New York by storm.”
In terms of exhibit set-up, “there will be a
large circular dining table with headphones
where visitors can listen to individual mp3
players,” said Ms. Harrison. And “if I see
someone at the table glazing over, I’ll know it’s
Jef’s piece [the 15 minutes of yesses and noes]—
it’s hypnotic.”
In 1995, co-curators Mr. Gordon and Ms.
Soong collaborated on the production of Two
Dialogues, a CD that featured the only known
recorded interview with Jackson Pollock,
together with a later extensive conversation
with his wife, a noted painter herself, Lee
Krasner. All sales royalties from that project
went to beneft the Pollock-Krasner House and
Study Center. This show has a similar, if far
more elaborate and pricier, souvenir: “The 15
MINUTES Box,” produced in a limited edition
of 85, will include 16 signed and numbered
silkscreen prints by the artists and musicians
featured in the show, three CDs with all 17 of the
artist recordings, four vinyl records of the same
recordings and liner notes, for a cool $20,000
apiece. The so-called Regular Box (1,964 of them
will be ofered) has unsigned prints instead, for a
few hundred dollars. Twenty-fve percent of box
sales will go toward the Pollock-Krasner House.
What would Warhol say if he knew about
all the fuss? “He’d probably say, “Gee,” said Ms.
Harrison. o

ntil my generation, there was no genre for
suburban art,” explained Eric Fischl. The topic wasn’t
“recognized as legitimate. It wasn’t until my generation, who were
really the first to grow up in the suburbs, that the kind of creative
content from that experience” became fodder for painting.
The American artist began to make his mark decades ago
with his often dead-on and disquieting scenes of suburbia.
Critically acclaimed almost immediately, his paintings captured sexually aware
adolescents, bathers at the beach and bedroom dramas in bucolic settings. His
international reputation established—his work is now in virtually every major
museum—he recently launched a project that takes a kinder, redemptive view of
the nation. Mr. Fischl’s “America: Now and Here,” a kind of high-brow traveling
circus, is bringing visual and performing arts, plus poetry and film, on a cross-
country tour (So far, the project has visited Kansas City; Detroit and Chicago are
next, and a New York venue is under discussion.)

The New York Observer talked to the
contemporary master about his life and work.
You were born in New York City but grew
up in Port Washington, Long Island. What
was your youth like there?
It was complicated. The environment was
quite fabulous. It was the kind of place where
doors were always left open, dogs weren’t on
leashes, and your play-dates weren’t scheduled.
There was a sense of safety and shared well-
being that was conflicted by how hard people
worked to maintain the image of it even when
it wasn’t true—the security, prosperity or that
sense of the Garden of Eden.
I was part of a family that was suffering
terribly from alcoholism, self-destruction and
violence. What went on inside the house was a
very different experience from what it looked
like from the outside. I personally grew up in a
deeply conflicted realm between what you could
say and what you couldn’t say and my early work
was about breaking down that barrier.
When did you first start making art?
I came to it late. I came to it when I was 20
years old, having gone through a bunch of prior
experiences that didn’t lead anywhere. I flunked
out of college once and … ended up going to a
junior college just to meet people because I
didn’t know anyone. I took art classes because I
figured that if you’re bad at art you’ll still get a C,
right? So, what the hell, I started making art and
it was an instant love affair. I realized that this
was all that I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
You went to CalArts in 1972, when it was
the hot spot for artists, and then taught at
the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design,
where you met your wife, artist April
Gornik. Then, New York. So, how did you
first hook up with Mary Boone Gallery?
I got connected through David Salle and Ross
Bleckner. At the time I was showing across the
street in SoHo … I asked David and Ross if they
could help me make the shift to Mary, which was
the hottest gallery of the moment. If you wanted
to compete in the art world, that was where you
had to go; and I wanted to be a part of it.
What was it like living in SoHo in the
heyday of the 1980’s and 90’s?
SoHo was like a village in the 80’s, a town
within the city. It was a community of artists. I
was young. I was ambitious. I was among people
who shared my passions. We were competitive
and helpful. We worked hard and played hard.
The bar scene was lively. The club scene even
livelier. It was the “scene” that attracted non-
artists to SoHo, but it was the artist’s village
that attracted the artists. It gave us a profound
sense of place.
How were you affected as an artist when
the New York art world shifted to Chelsea?
Chelsea is a dealer’s attempt to recreate
SoHo. It is without soul or any feeling of
community. It is the art-packing district.
When did you move to the Hamptons?
April and I first bought a house in Sag
Harbor in 1985; and we have been here ever
since.
What was it like when you arrived?
It was very blue collar, and although it had a
nice community of writers, it was a town that
closed down pretty tightly after Labor Day. We
spent a couple of years out here in the 80’s and
those were long winters. It’s changed a lot since
then.
How so?
It’s become more of a suburb, which is the
negative aspect of it. It’s eaten up a lot of the
beautiful land around it to put up ugly and
uninteresting homes. It has more of a feeling
of self-satisfaction—there’s an attitude out
here that’s not very interesting. I don’t
think it’s done a great lot of good. Maybe
it’s made some local people, who were
struggling, rich.
However, New York City has also changed
since I’ve been out here. I find it much more
conducive to creativity out here than I do in
the city.
Tell us about the “America: Now and Here”
project.
I started working on it about four years ago.
It was a simple idea linked to the conversations
I was having with people and stories that I
would hear on TV news programs, which always
seemed so anxious and unsettled that I began to
think America was suffering an identity crisis.
We have gotten so far off our center that we don’t
feel confident about the future or know who we
are and how resourceful we can be.

What did you decide to do?
I felt that Americans never really turn to their
artists to ask for help, but something that art
does very well is to help people with issues of
identity. I thought, I know a lot of great artists,
I’ll ask them myself if they would help out,
which is what I did. It started out with we me
asking visual artists to participate. That grew
as I spoke to playwright friends who wanted to
get involved, so we added a theater component.
Then I spoke to poet friends who wanted to
contribute ... Next some singer-songwriters
and filmmakers got onboard and it went from a
visual arts thing to a multimedia event.
Is it successful?
I always envisioned the project would be a
way to build a sense of community around this
thing that we all share and call America, while
at the same time trying to redefine it, which is
what we are beginning to do. o

A
t the Consulate of
the Russian Federa-
tion on New York’s
Upper East Side,
in a breathtaking
ballroom of gleaming chandeliers
and golden sconces, waiters raced
towers of chilled caviar and warm
cream pufs back and forth from
the kitchen, reflling each tier as
it lost its overfow. White-haired
70-something Ilya Kabakov walked
in dressed as he would from clam-
digging: handsome, casual, relaxed.
Mr. Kabakov, who works closely
with his wife, Emilia, as a con-
ceptual and political art-making
team in the model of Christo and
Jeanne-Claude, was a decade ago
named by Artnews magazine the
greatest living artist, and he is
today the most expensive Russian
art star. The elaborate party at the
consulate, which drew collectors,
diplomats, ample security and
Museum of Modern Art curator
emeritus (and Yale Art School
dean) Robert Storr, was in honor
of the couple. Specifcally, it was in
honor of their having gifted their
huge installation The Red Wagon
to the Hermitage Museum in St.
Petersburg after the work had
toured Europe. (The Hermitage,
packed with Rembrandts and the
Impressionists, is in the midst of a
furious “20/21 Campaign” to build
its collection of postwar and con-
temporary art in time for its 250th
anniversary in three years.) Not
long ago, the Hermitage, perhaps
the world’s greatest and certainly
most glamorous museum, gave the
couple their own show and they
have their frst show of new work in
New York coming up.
In the U.S., Ilya Kabakov’s big
breakthrough probably came at the
1997 Whitney Biennial of Ameri-
can Art, when the Kabakovs build a
chilling, memorable installation of
a Soviet Union state hospital. Ilya
had left the country a decade ear-
lier and, at that point, it had little
appeal to him, he told one art critic
at the time, because his passport as
a young man had coded him not as
“Russian,” but as “Russian Jewish.”
In recent years, though, the Cold
War has thawed, particularly after
Kabakov works were exhibited in
the Garage Center for Contempo-
rary Culture, which is the private
museum of collector and socialite
Dasha Zhukova, not incidentally
the girlfriend of one of the region’s
richest men, Roman Abramovich.
With dealers representing them
around the world and an interna-
tional reputation, the Kabakovs
could live, easily, anywhere they
want to. Their pick for the past 17
years has been America, New York,
and, most specifcally, Riverhead,
L.I. “We’re right across the lake
from Southampton,” said Mr. Ka-
bakov, implying that this is a very
good thing in both its convenience
to the town and its distance away.
The “isolation” helps him work, he
said. “I don’t take the telephone, I
don’t use the computer.” His wife
succinctly explains the appeal of
their East End home: “The light and
the people,” she said. “It is Ameri-
ca.” Chimed in her husband: “I like
New York City but it’s younger, too
much frenzy, too much talking.”
In recent months, much of
that talking, in the art world at
least, has been about them. The
Kabakovs raised eyebrows early
this year when they left their
longtime U.S. representative,
Sean Kelly Gallery, art dealer
for stars Marina Abramovic and
Kehinde Wiley, for the relatively
upstart Edelman Arts. Mr. Edel-
man, better known as a 1980’s
corporate raider and a reported
inspiration for Wall Street film
villain Gordon Gekko, does
a bustling business in loans
against art, along with selling it.
Mrs. Kabakov lauded Mr. Edel-
man’s being a rare combination
of “businessman and collector.”
He’ll show Kabakov drawings at
a show opening this fall. o

“Made in China” used to denote luxury
and craftsmanship—think silk, porcelain,
jewelry, Ming furniture. In 1847, the frst ship to
visit New York from China attracted 4,000 visi-
tors per day, who each paid 25 cents to appreci-
ate its design. So why does “Made in China” now
typically conjure up low-end manufacturing
or copycat work? Would Marco Polo have been
equally dazzled if he had visited China today?
A handful of Beijing and Shanghai design-
ers are trying to impress today’s Marco Polos.
Many of them are going beyond the chinoiserie
style of playing up traditional elements in a
facile fashion. Instead, they’re boldly retooling
Chinese design elements and characteristics
to serve contemporary work. The interna-
tional recognition that Chinese Contemporary
art has gotten is inspiring many of the nation’s
up-and-coming designers to aim for wider
acceptance and acclaim.
In a breakthrough show in 2006, Contrasts
Gallery in Shanghai commissioned artists such
as Hu Jun and Wu Yiming to design functional
objects like furniture and other well-known
designers to create nonfunctional works, i.e.,
art. In Beijing, meanwhile, the 798 Art District
is already home to many furniture and inte-
rior- and fashion-design studios. One of the
hottest, Brand New China (BNC), showcases
works by Chinese designers.
Tucked away in a Beijing-style hutong (nar-
row alley), No. 5 (Wuhao) Design Shop displays
seasonal furniture collections themed around
the Chinese theory of the “fve elements,” draw-
ing inspiration from the color and characteristic
associated with each element. Proprietor
Isabella Pascal brought Xiao Tianyu’s Ming
furniture-inspired “harmony in bamboo”
chairs—which Pascal fondly described as “with
an attitude”—to the 2011 Milan Furniture Fair.
They feature asymmetrical bamboo backs
and hand-crafted, fabric-covered padded
seats. Using traditional Chinese woodworking
techniques, designer Zheng Haichen crafted a
bench that is framed at both ends by tree trunks.
The work has a strong presence as a sculpture
and an installation.
While half a world away, these works and
more information are available to U.S. design
lovers through artist and gallery websites such
as www.wuhaoonline.com. o

I
n today’s fashion-design world,
success is when a “Gossip Girl” dons
your sunglasses. And success came
early to Karen Mulligan and Jill
Demling, friends of 10 years standing
who last year founded Pret-a-Surf.
The two women already had
a decent amount going for them—youth,
energy, powerhouse connections—when they
decided to launch the line of beach clothing for
fashionistas and sports professionals. What
they didn’t have was experience, funding or
the desire to quit their day jobs to make a go
of it. Ms. Mulligan works as a studio manager
for photographer Annie Leibovitz, and Ms.
Demling is the entertainment editor at Vogue.
“We both have a very similar aesthetic,”
Ms. Demling said. “It made sense for us to col-
laborate on something that was both fashion-
able and athletic.” The result was the line of
professional-grade surf gear and swimsuits,
featuring retro print bikinis, rash guards and
color-blocked one-pieces made for serious
surfer girls. (Prices circle the low hundreds.)
At a year old, Pret-a-Surf is already getting
outsize attention in the swim world. The duo
first realized that the line was going to be
more than just a whim when the meatpacking
district boutique Jefrey picked them up.
“Jefrey Kalinsky agreed to meet with us
and said from the beginning that he had no
business selling swimsuits, but decided to buy
the line anyways,” Ms. Mulligan said. “The
collection sold out … Barneys quickly followed
suit.”
They attribute their success to a combina-
tion of being in the right place at the right time
and having their pulse on an upcoming trend
for surf-inspired clothing.
Although the line is expanding quite
rapidly, the pair are trying to be careful not to
overextend themselves, especially since they
have kept their day jobs. “But it is definitely
growing faster than we anticipated,” Ms.
Mulligan said.
To date, Pret-a-Surf has already collaborat-
ed with KBL on a pair of cherry-red sunglasses
that were snapped up by Emma Stone and
Gossip Girl Blake Lively. Their upcoming
resort collection will have more than 21
pieces—triple the size of their last. o
Pret-a-Surf can be found at the following
Hamptons locations: Blue and Cream, 60 The
Circle, East Hampton; Surf Bazaar at the Surf
Lodge, 183 South Edgemere Street, Montauk.

o fashion designer Cynthia
Rowley, Mr. Powers doesn’t
mean Austin, but Bill. Her
art-dealer and TV-star hus-
band (he’s a judge on Bravo’s
Work of Art) is often spotted
and photographed around
town in … striking outfits: a crème jacket over
jeans at the Gilt Man party; a two-tone plaid
blazer for the Armory show’s V.I.P. opening; a
purple oxford for hanging with Vito Schnabel;
an unusual camel-and-yellow-striped cardigan
to salute explorer Waris Ahluwalia. In an age
when few men’s clothes are noticeable, even
dapper, his are.
This summer, Ms. Rowley enters her third
decade in the business and launches a new,
rebranded menswear line, “Mr. Powers,”
named after her spouse in salute to his style.
She describes the collection as a mix of “shirts,
T’s, sweaters and jackets—no pants—because
doesn’t everything look better with jeans?”
The couple have been unwinding in the
easternmost part of the East End for nearly a
decade but it wasn’t until 2010 that Ms.Rowley
finally caved and opened her first shop in
Montauk. The goal was a mixture of beach-
house boutique and village gathering place
that she hoped could become known for its
performance-art events and creative collabora-
tions almost as much as for her wares.
“I wanted to be able to host friends’ projects
and products within the store, which we do
in this great space we’ve coined ‘the shack in
the back,’” she said. This season, the schedule
includes an eclectic mix of topiary classes from
Brooklyn-based flower shop Red, Rose and
Lavender, art openings and a creative collabo-
ration with Lauren Bush’s nonprofit FEED
Projects. Somewhere along the way, they’ll
likely be free manicures and swimsuit fashion
shows; check the namesake website.
Ms. Rowley also opens another East End
shop this summer, this one in the Capri Hotel,
which, like so many other Hamptonites, re-
cently got a much-needed face-lift. The pop-up
ofers Roxy-collaboration wetsuits, surfoards
other beach-bum necessities. Ms. Rowley has
also added her design touches
to spaces throughout the hotel, including the
hotel’s poolside lounge the Bathing Club, and
curated the art in the guestrooms, some of
which is sold through the art-collecting website
Exhibition-A.
The surfside expansion makes sense for
Ms. Rowley, as she declares, “I love the beach
so much that I’m in danger of disappearing to
some far-flung locale and surfing every day for
the rest of my life.” o
The Capri is located at 281 County Road 39A
(Route 27), Southampton; Cynthia Rowley
Montauk is located at 696 Montauk Highway,

“It was like meeting the Buddha,” said
Edsel Williams of his 2009 interaction with
Sir Paul McCartney. Mr. Williams was hosting
a Pop-Up shop and art-charity benefit for
Sir Paul’s daughter, fashion designer Stella,
at his Springs art-exhibition space. “Sir Paul
was the first to arrive and the last to leave …
He was an incredibly humble man,” said Mr.
Williams. Another favorite moment from
the day, Mr. Williams added, was “Gwyneth
Paltrow changing clothes in my office.”
Most of the time, Mr. Williams’s space is
filled with celebrities of the more art-star
variety. The former ballet dancer opened the
Fireplace Project in 2006 in the abandoned
plumbing-and-auto-repair workshop of
Richard Talmage, a friend and neighbor of
Jackson Pollock. Since then,
the simple, pitched-roof space
has presented solo exhibitions
by some of the hottest art stars
overseen by surprisingly big-
name curators.
He’s done shows of works by
several artists who would later
go on to influential museum
shows or art-world fame: Martin Oppel,
Hernan Bas, Aaron Young and the Bruce
High Quality Foundation among them. Not a
traditional gallery, he presents artists more
than he represents them, he said. Curators
Klaus Kertess, Beth DeWoody, David Salle,
Anne Pasternak and Neville Wakefield have
overseen the shows. And so far he’s done two
“Hamptons Artists” exhibitions, to highlight
local talent. He’s also hosted the Pollock-
Krasner Lecture series for the past four
years; the events are most Sundays at 5 p.m.
Last summer, Mr. Williams announced that
the Fireplace Project was closing
and even held a show called “The
End of the Affair.” But “so much
for that idea,” he said, deciding to
stick around. “We’ve brought a lot
of crazy good things out here. I’m
proud of it all. Historically, I have
no idea how the cards will fall. I just
hope that when it’s all over, which it
surely will be one day, people look back fondly
on this place and remember how good it felt to
come here and see good work.”
That said, Mr. Williams can’t help but
name-drop just once more. “I love it when
Edward Albee comes to visit, which is often.
He has a great curiosity.” o

eet the Hon. Fred Fellowes;
he’s the 33-year-old son of the 4th
Baron de Ramsey and the founder
of the Secret Garden Party. Every
summer he hosts a hedonistic music
festival in Cambridgeshire, England,
where 30,000 people camp out, dance, eat, drink and make
mischief on his dad’s land before departing in a hung-over
haze. Now he’s bringing his “boutique” festival to America.
From Aug. 5 to 7, Mr. Fellowes will host a U.S. incarnation
of his bacchanalia on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation in
Southampton. Patti Smith will headline along with other high-
end musical talents like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic
Zeros, the Psychedelic Furs and the Vaccines, at $275 for a
three-day pass. But music will only be the beginning of the
journey, said the host, who’s planning for 5,000 visitors a day.
With Woodstock no more than a chapter in history books
and Burning Man light years away in Nevada, the East Coast
has been left of the festival map, and perhaps there’s good
reason for that. Since the posh Hamptons summer crowd may
view camping as a form of torture, Mr. Fellowes is pushing
the concept of “glamping” (glamorous camping). A luxurious,
furnished safari tent for $3,350 a night comes with a butler,
Glamping Bell Boys, “exclusive toilets,” showers, a shuttle ser-
vice to and from the music events, plus a V.I.P. basket of food
and goodies. (No one will be allowed to bring their own liquor
and glass is not allowed on the grounds.) Waterproof tepees
that sleep six people are available for a mere $2,250 a night.
Mr. Fellowes said he will be creating a whole “Alice in Won-
derland” experience for festival-goers, with eccentric acts like

guests can break into. They’ll also be a nighttime
treasure hunt for ingredients for the perfect
cocktail. The driving idea behind the festival is
to get people to “break down the barrier that
prevents you from turning to the person in the
bar next to you and speaking,” said the host. “The
nonmusical entertainment will be geared at get-
ting you involved.”
Freddie Fellowes does not resemble your
average party promoter. For a start, he’s dressed
in a button-down shirt (albeit a purple one) with
cuf links when we meet him in midtown at the
ofce of his publicist. Recently married, he’s tall
and dark-haired, his crisp accent mercifully free
of the fake cockney intonation (a.k.a. “mock-
ney”) that so many of his compatriots adopt
in a failed attempt to seem down to earth. Mr.
Fellowes attended Eton the year before Prince
William arrived but said he was kicked out for
forging a £1 check to the school shop during a
draconian purge of the school’s undesirables
before the future king turned up.
He started the Secret Garden Party in 2004,
a couple of years after college. At that point, it
was defnitely what you might call an amateur
afair—Mr. Fellowes built the stage himself with
a couple of friends. But they had KT Tunstall
as one of the acts, 500 people turned up and
attendees pronounced it a triumph. The next
year, the turnout was 900. Last year, the Secret
Garden Party was voted #1 favorite thing to do
in the summer by Time Out London.
Bringing it to New York took some planning.
“It took us a year of sitting down, talking to the
Shinnecock and essentially convincing them to
open their land to the white guy. It’s wonderful
having a relationship with a community like
that. By having the festival on the reservation,
Escape to New York will be free of some of
the constraints that bind other public events.
According to New York State Trooper Kevin
Drew, “They will be on private property; there
are certain laws that don’t apply to them. They
won’t need a noise ordinance, for instance.”
When it comes to serving alcohol though, the
event is under the same rules as anyone else
in New York State. The festival is open only to
those over 21 and under 10. Beverly Jensen, the
Shinnecock’s spokesperson, said, “We think of
this as an experiment. So far they’ve been super-
careful and as a long as they keep their word and
clean up in time for our 65th annual Pow-Wow
in September, we won’t have any concerns.”
By and large, locals said Mr. Fellowes and
his event are welcome. But Trooper Drew is
a little skeptical. “People out here sleep in
their mansions. Do they really expect locals
will want to pay to camp? In a perfect world ,
maybe… ” o I

Popcorn
With stars and strategy, a
flm festival seeks
to build box ofce.
ByDaisyPrince
The Oscar-winning movie The King’s
Speech had its North American premiere
last fall at the Hamptons International
Film Festival. Director Tom Hopper was in
attendance. Black Swan had its East Coast
premiere at the festival as well, as did James
Franco’s 127 Hours, prompting the actor’s frst
trip to the Hamptons.
A haven for celebrities, it’s not for nothing
that the area is known as “Hollywood on the
Atlantic.” Still, the region’s flm fest still isn’t
as well known as bigger rivals Sundance and
the Toronto Film Festival, which bookend it.
So when the festival board decided that they
needed to fnd a way to create more buzz around
their October event, the obvious answer was
to interest the high-octane summer crowd.
They came up with the idea of a summer
documentary series, called “Summer Docs,”
followed by Q&A sessions hosted by star Alec
Baldwin.
“It turned out to be a big hit out here and
we sold out the theater,” said Karen Arikian,
the festival’s executive director. It shows that
people are really interested in documentaries.
They don’t want to see only Sex and the City.
Key to the series, both in its popularity
and content, is Mr. Baldwin. Unlike the main
festival, which gets over 2,000 submissions,
the documentaries are narrowed down from
about 20 personal favorites. According to
David Nugent, director of programming,
“Alec and I program it together. It’s really
more him than me.”
Born and raised in Massapequa, Mr.
Baldwin is the original Long Islander who
never fails to return to the Hamptons every
summer and sits on the festival’s board of
directors. The actor takes flm, and his role,
seriously, often entertaining more than
the requisite number of questions after the
screenings, for example. He’s even been
known to poke fun at himself. Last summer
after a screening of Last Day of Shea, a
baseball flm produced by Billy Joel, he
noticed that the singer’s ex-wife, Christie
Brinkley, was present. He shouted: “Billy,
how do you get your ex-wife to attend your
movie premiere? As most of you know, my
relationship with my ex is a little diferent.”
On a darker note, The Most Dangerous Man
in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon
Papers was screened last year just as the fervor
over WikiLeaks was coming to a head. Mr.
Nugent said, “We had Carl Bernstein, Daniel
Ellsburg, Alec Baldwin and Gerry Lefcourt,
a civil rights lawyer, involved in a 25-minute
discussion about the flm. It was fascinating.”
No doubt this year’s Page One
documentary will spark as much interest.
Directed by Andrew Rossi, the flm follows
New York Times Media reporters David Carr
and Brian Stelter on their daily beats and
explores the changing role of newspapers
in society. The festival has locked down Bill
Keller, soon-to-be ex-editor of The Times,
for a robust Q&A session with the director
and Mr. Baldwin. That screening is July 22 at
Guild Hall.
All of the summer brand-building is aimed
at generating interest in the main event in
the fall. This year, it will run from October 13
to 17. The movies screened will bear watching
by Academy Award handicappers. According
to Stuart Suna, owner of Silvercup Studios
and a chair of the festival, “Everyone knows
that many Academy voters have houses in the
Hamptons,” and the festival gives them and
others “a frst look at many of the flms that
go on to win at the Oscars.” o

at the Watermill Summer Benefit
a couple of years ago, a blindfolded woman,
naked and slathered in fake blood, broke
glasses of milk on the ground with a satisfying
“snap!” Turned out she was just the opening
act for sequined burlesque performer Dita von
Teese, who dangled from the ceiling on a swing
during the dinner as bouncing artists in animal
headdresses gathered below. The theme of the
beneft that year had something vaguely to do
with zoos. This year, it’s ”Voluptuous Panic.”
Overseeing all this will be performer, instal-
lation artist, writer, stage director, playwright,
and consummate Renaissance man, Robert
Wilson, who is on the verge of celebrating his
70th birthday October 4. Mr. Wilson, by e-mail,
urged his cult-like camp of comrades and
collaborators to refrain from any gift-giving,
however. It’s not because the co-creator of the
avant-garde opera “Einstein on the Beach”
has everything, though a case can be made, it’s
because he’d rather his admirers purchase a
ticket to the what has proven to be, in recent
years, the art-world’s Midsummer madness.
The 18th Annual Watermill Summer
Beneft on July 30 aims to transport guests
to Berlin’s Golden Twenties, a provocative
era of experimentation in art, science and
sexuality. Artistic director of the center, Jorn
Weisbrodt, praised the period as having a
“chaotic and sexually-charged energy.” This
year’s dress code is “Fearless,” he added, a
term he picked to encourage the guests to
wear “as little fabric as possible.”
The art crowd normally needs little
encouragement to do so.
Watermill Center is an industrial-like, yet
inviting, setting for young artists to hone
their craft and express their artistic freedom.
Founded by Mr. Wilson in 1992, “It is my
legacy [and] what I care most about,” he said.
Mr. Weisbrodt is careful not to call it a school,
but rather a laboratory for performance
where Mr. Wilson helps the artists “carve out
the core of their ideas.” It all takes place in
an area that Mr. Weisbrodt noted “combines
an incredibly beautiful nature and high living
standard” and one that “feels very remote.”
Among the beneft’s cast are 40 or so
artists chosen from Watermill’s summer
program and several others handpicked for
special projects. What emerges is six acres
of installations and performances, as well as
diverse artistic interpretations on the theme.
“You should come with no expectation. It is
something you have to see, smell, hear, and
experience,” Mr. Wilson said.
The ticket, at $500 for cocktails and
double that for dinner (one year, all the
food was white, which wasn’t easy), doesn’t
come cheap. But it lures the Hamptons’ elite.
Among the expected 1,650 guests, are Calvin
Klein, Jay McInerney, and Tatiana Platt, co-
founder of FameGame.com, not to mention a
member on the board of Bryd Hofman Foun-
dation, a pre-Watermill Center entity also
used as a vehicle to support emerging artists.
Mrs. Platt calls Mr. Wilson and his work
“audacious. It’s as if everyone is encouraged
to think way beyond the realm of normal
reality, and engage the audience [or] viewer
to challenge their norms of expectation.”
Commencing at 6 p.m., the event (www.
watermillcenter.org) will include a silent and
live auction featuring 75 works from emerg-
ing and well-established artists, like Robert
Longo, famous for his 1980s “Men in the
Cities” series portraying swank businessmen
writhing in emotion and Marina Abramović,
who continues to push the possibilities of
mind and body, with special lots in honor of
Mr. Wilson’s birthday celebration. Simon de
Pury of Phillips will hold the sale, cajoling
the wealthy to buy more and often. Proceeds
from the event will likely circle $1.5 million, a
number that supports the Watermill Center’s
international summer program and fall and
spring residencies.
Earlier this year, Mr. Wilson, now a fxture
on the social media circuit, tweeted philo-
sophically: “Life is lukewarm madness. Art
turns up the heat.”
If this is true, the Hamptons are about to
be set ablaze. o

When interior decorator Tim Whealon bought his cottage
out in Southampton, he knew he couldn’t compete in terms of square
footage with the Hamptons Palaces that dominate the Long
Island shoreline. But he fgured he could bring a mix of old-world charm,
clean lines and eclecticism to the weekend retreat. The result is
a house so charming it makes you wonder why anyone would want to
bother with more than a simple weekend cottage.

Built in 1914, Mr. Whealon’s idyll is a two-
story, three-bedroom shingled house a block
from the main street with a garden big enough
for a dog to play in and small enough not to
require a full-time gardener. (He does his own
weeding, as stress relief.) After years of renting
in the area, Mr. Whealon was decisive when
it came to his cottage. His broker showed it
to him on a windy day in March and he put in

Known as a decorator with, to say the least,
a penchant for color, Mr. Whealon covered the
front entrance hall in Phillip Jefries material
of a deep Madagascar blue, and ofset it with
a white staircase and modern photographs
mounting the walls. “There is a clean crispness
to my rooms but I also want them to be warm
and inviting,” he said. The decorator put up
ceiling moldings and stained all the foors a
deep chocolate brown. His living room and
dining rooms are pale pink but his bedroom is a
lavender gray; guest rooms are blue and green.
The kitchen foor has a soothing checkerboard
pattern and the walls are painted a white that
Mr. Whealon mixes himself, perfected after
countless jobs. The bathroom is equally pristine
but instead of a having a modern, square sink,
he chose a curved number with dual taps. The
look is “cottage fresh,” as he likes to put it.
Inside, he was unafraid to mix art from
diferent periods. One special fnd, he said, were
33 botanical prints by Italian artist Giuseppe
Penone discovered at the art fair Art Basel.

comes from having the windows open and the

After graduating from Kenyon College, the
Midwest-born designer spent a few years train-
ing to be a banker before deciding that number
crunching wasn’t for him. He ended up doing a
Sotheby’s art course in London that introduced
him to Palladian architecture and he fell in love
with some of the grand English houses when he
was there. “I loved Houghton,” he said. “Neo-
Palladian houses are so incredible, and I try to
bring elements of that pared-down sensibility
to my design.”
He worked at Sotheby’s for a year in its
apprenticeship program, which meant that he
rotated continually between departments. He
started working directly for high-end clients
who lived at 740 Park, buying art and antiques
for them as well as traveling constantly. Then
he had his “ahh-ha” moment and decided that it
was time to go into his own business.
Now, Mr. Whealon likes clients to take his
advice from soup to nuts, so he recommends
the architect, an art adviser and anything and
everything they need to make a spectacular
place to live. He loves long projects and doesn’t
feel his job is complete until the Champagne
is in the fridge and the sheets are pressed and
ready to go.
When it comes to his own place, Mr. Whealon
is a bit of a magpie who picks up art and furni-

The outlook for summer in the
Hamptons is clouds, clearing.
And we’re not talking about the
weather.
Now two years distant from the bru-
tal real estate downturn of two years
ago – when so-called “Lehman” homes,
named after the troubled investment
bank, sold for 30% of their peak prices
-- realtors report that demand is up and
some measure of stability has returned
to the market.
It helps, noted Martha Gunderson,
senior director at Brown Harris Ste-
vens, that it was a cold winter – buyers
showed up in early spring to start
shopping, she said. Helping even more
is that sellers are fnally being more
realistic about what their homes can
fetch. “Owners are more fexible with
price,” she said.
Add to that a boom in telecommuting
and favorable foreign currency ex-
changes and local brokers have reason
to be smiling more. “We have more
people even moving out here on a full
time basis,” said Bill Stoecker, senior
vice president at Town and Country
Real Estate. [With] the weak dollar
versus overseas currencies, especially
the euro, there are more foreign buyers
as well.”
While “still not back at 2007
levels…the market is healthy,” said

Marilyn Clark, senior vice president at
Sotheby’s International Realty based
in Bridgehampton. “There is a lot of
confdence again.”
What do homes cost now? Accord-
ing to Corcoran broker Beth Marano,
“high-end Hamptons home prices
range from $3 million for a home north
of the highway on one acre, while the
same high-end home will cost $7 mil-
lion south of the highway.”
Consider a 12,000-square-foot-
home on East Hampton’s Middle Lane.
Boasting 10 bedrooms, 12.5 baths,
12.5 acres, and tennis courts it was
listed eight years ago for $21 million.
It recently came back on the market at
$10 million.
For her clients, Ms. Clark said the
two most popular price ranges this
summer are $8 million -$10 million
and $20 million - $30 million. But
there have been a number of transac-
tions in the $45 million price range.
What, exactly, does that get you? A
home in Bridgehampton that is on the
market for $59.5 million dollars brags
30,000 square feet, 11.5 acres, and, if
Tony Hawk comes by, a skateboard half
pipe.
But in the years since the eco-
nomic downturn, even big-time buyers
become more budget-conscious, said
Bill Williams, broker at Sotheby’s
International Realty. “It’s not like 2008
when people would spend outrageous
amounts of money,” he said. “Prices
have stabilized.” Nor is it a time of
aggressive bargain-hunting, he added.
Mr. Williams said that today, buyers
aren’t necessarily seeking out the low-
est price, but rather, looking for homes
that they feel are worth what they are
spending.
So what does the typical Hamptons
buyer want today? Brokers say buyers
are feeling friendly, and are looking for

Who doesn’t want their own personal body of
water? Hedge fund manager Chris Shumway’s
got his. The financier’s six-acre oceanfront
estate comes with neighbors like Vera Wang
and New York Times publisher Arthur
Sulzberger, plus a pond. The property also has
bedrooms in the teens, tennis courts and a
guest house. The 13,000 square-foot mansion
boasts 10 plus bathrooms as well as quarters
for the staff.
6WoodsLane
Not much land but, ah, the location. This
East Hamptons mansion, which last changed
hands at $50 million, is a three-acre colonial
style home. Seven rooms, a wine cellar and a
media room coexist within its walls. The prop-
erty also features a gunite pool, pool house,
tennis court, fountain and a guest cottage.
FairfeldPond
Junk-bond Financier Ira Rennert’s gargan-
tuan 63-acre estate has been called the largest
residential compound in North America.
The property features 29 bedrooms, 39
bathrooms (!), five sports courts -- and a
synagogue. It also houses an indoor theater
and two bowling alleys. According to Curbed
Hamptons, the Rennerts are considering add-
ing an outdoor bathroom, apparently seeking
to round out the total.
BurntPoint
The 18,000-square-foot waterfront property,
at about $45 million, is located in the Georgica
Pond area. The 25-acre estate includes a
private dock and sailboat. The property also
consists of a waterfall, octagonal guest suite
and greenhouse. Almost half a mile of water
frontage completes the picture.
VillaMaria
Here’s why shoes and bags are so expensive:
When this 14.6-acre estate and former con-
vent was sold to Nine West co-founder Vincent
Camuto in 2005, it cost him $35 million.
But in 2008, it was listed for a reported $100
million, and one wonders how much it would
go for now. The 21,000-square-foot manor
boasts 12 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, a ballroom
and views of Mecox Bay.
TheSeinfeldEstate
If you imagine the Hamptons as a land where
celebrities pal around, tan and trade estates,
here’s some proof: Jerry Seinfeld’s 12-acre
$32 million beachfront estate was purchased
from Billy Joel in 2000. Brokers estimate it
would go for nearly $20 million more than
double that today, due to some upgrades.
Contributing to the heightened price is a
baseball diamond. Oh and there’s plenty of
space in the garage – 22 spaces, to be exact.
2170MeadowLane
This $27 million Southampton Village home
was designed by late architect Norman Jaffe.
Its 4.2-acre house consists of five bedrooms,
five bathrooms, a pool and spa. They’re just
overkill, considering there’s 200-feet of
beachfront.
Eothen
Andy Warhol’s former 20-acre, five-home (he
was a friendly fellow) residence was purchased
by J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler in 2007 estate
for $27 million, a steep discount off of the
original $50 million asking price. While there
is no doubt that Warhol and company hosted
some fabulous parties in the Montauk home,
Eothen’s 600 feet of waterfront property has a
more rustic feel than some of its peers.
ClaverackEstate
Nineteenth-century estates are rare in the
region. President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s
granddaughter Anne sold this historic one last
winter for $35 million. The property includes
the main mansion, a separate cottage,
tennis courts, reflecting pond and a pool. The
12,000-square-foot house has nine bedrooms
and nine working fireplaces. o

a property that will allow them to entertain
extensively. Acreage is key too, but so,
increasingly, is privacy. Tennis courts are
seeing an uptick in popularity. Then there’s
the usual: high ceilings, stainless-steel appli-
ances and granite in the kitchens.
There’s a fad for fnished basements, the
more elaborate, customized and tricked-out
the better. Corcoran associate broker Gary
DePersia has seen basements turned into
bowling alleys, squash courts, gyms with
rock climbing walls and home theaters with
cinema-style bells and whistles. Addition-
ally, brokers say that for outdoor spaces,
pools, bluestone patios and pergolas have all
become more sought-after. Lights powered
by solar and geothermal energy are a trend
as well. And even though a traditional,
beachy, and cedar-shingled home is the area
standard, more contemporary homes are hit-
ting the market. Ms. Clark has shown a state
of the art modern house on 144 Meadowlark
Lane in Bridgehampton for $11.9 million.
Mr. Stoecker’s pitch to potential buyers,
or renters, in the East End is simple: “Got to
get here.” o

Catskills: Green Counties
When Patrick Swayze lifted Baby out of a corner
in “Dirty Dancing,” the Catskils took of. Already famous for
Rip van Winkle, the Borscht Belt and Woodstock, the mega-hit
1987 flm, brokers and homeowners said, was publicity that the
region was leafy, riddled with lakes and, if Jerry Orbach was
behind the wheel, a relatively short drive from the city.
In the late 1980’s and early 90’s, actors and art-worlders
began to relocate there, to towns like Monticello, Livingston
Manor and Bethel, site of the Woodstock Festival. Immigrants,
at least for the weekend, were people of one name: Yoko, Uma,
Bobby (okay, de Niro.) Then the real-estate downturn hit the
region, and some towns in the Greene, Delaware and Sullivan
counties became rundown, foreclosures rose and mid six-fgure
sales slowed.
Today, for home-buyers, the entry point is relatively cheap.
The average price for a home in Sullivan County—the nearest
to the city and a a Rhode Island-sized rural area with towns like
Monticello, Livingston Manor, Bethel—in the last three months
was $152,740. In April, three houses in the region brought more
than $400,000, ending a recent drought of demand at the higher
price level, according to data compiled by David Knudsen, of
www.catskills4sale.com <http://www.catskills4sale.com/> . Wa-
terfront is ridiculously plentiful, as the region has a few dozen
lakes. Buyers can’t haggle much: single family home on average
sold for 89% of their asking price.
The buyer demographic is changing, said Mr. Knudsen, more
eco-conscious twenty and thirty-somethings, and privacy is a
big lure. Some are looking for a “farmette,” he said, as a “status
symbol.”
As for new construction, Chuck Petersheim of Catskill
Farms, which builds vintage-style homes in the region,
said a 900-square-foot house costs about $160,000, while a
2,000-square-foot-home would be about $400,000. The appeal
of the Catskills to buyers, he said, was that it isn’t just a “vaca-
tion town turned into a leafer version of the city.”
That was probably a shot at the Hamptons. o

Dear Friends,
We’re proud to celebrate our 45th anniversary making us one of the oldest family restaurant
businesses in New York. Fiorello, a Lincoln Center Institution opened in 1975. Soon after we opened
Trattoria Dell’Arte, the Brooklyn Diner and The Redeye Grill to serve the Carnegie Hall Community.
This year there’s been a lot of growth. In the last year we’ve opened up a Bond 45 in the National
Harbor Development on the shores of the Potomac, across from DC and Arlington.
We’ve also opened Fiorella’s (Fiorello’s sister) Pizzeria e Caffé, bringing our famous thin crust pizza
to DC. A Redeye Grill is currently under construction and set to open later this year. We also opened our
first Brooklyn Diner in the Middle East, in Dubai. Our first guests were an American couple who had
gotten engaged in the 57th Street location!
On a personal front I’m trying to spend more of my free time sculpting and enjoying my time
in Tuscany with my wife. One of my sculptures is displayed outside Bond 45 in National Harbor.
In case you don’t know us already, we pride ourselves on being different from other companies.
We love real people. We don’t tweet, Facebook, ‘blast’ you with emails, or blog. We like conversations,
eye contact, and smiles. In this time of smart devices, we’ve chosen to go dumb, because we know
that sometimes you can get too smart for your own good. Call me or email me personally
(Sfireman@thefhg.com) anytime. There’s nothing I love more than receiving your positive feedback
and compliments. All complaints/criticisms please direct to my son John (Jfireman@thefhg.com).
Thank you for all your loyalty over the years. We look forward to seeing you for many more.

Warmest,
Shelly
P.S. Don’t forget to visit us in Dubai!

PhilanthroPy
B
aby Buggy started of
as “a very small idea,”
said Jessica Seinfeld,
based on something
that was going on in
her life after her frst
child was born. Her
daughter was growing out of her crib,
and Ms. Seinfeld wanted to fnd a way
to donate her own and her friends’
baby gear to families who could use
it. Fast-forward a decade. This year,
about 5,000 “Buggy” volunteers met
at a warehouse near Madison Square
Garden to sort, patch and clean
thousands of baby goods. To date, the
nonproft has distributed nearly fve
million items.
The basic common sense of the
campaign was what caught on, said
the wife of the television star Jerry
Seinfeld. “That frst drive, 10 years
ago, when we just put the word out to
our friends and family, and so many
people came out to donate their cribs,
strollers and clothes, I knew we had hit
on something.” She added, “Jerry came
up with the motto: “Love. Recycled.” We
ask people to take the things they have
in abundance, for the ones they most
love, and share them.”
That said, the charity ended up going
of in other, more serious, directions.
“There’s been very little thought given
to giving baby equipment a useful sec-
ond life—but the real hole that I think
we fll is one that’s not so apparent,”
said the mother of three. One goal “is
to make things easier for the city’s
social service organizations, who do
direct service of all varieties. We hear
all the time that our donations actu-
ally help their case workers and the
city’s social workers. When the Nurse
Family Partnership is teaching moth-
ers how to diaper or how to properly
strap a baby in a stroller, having the
diapers and stroller to actually give
the mom makes a huge diference.”
Now, Ms. Seinfeld is taking the group
national. “I never dreamed we would
be anywhere other than my beloved
fve boroughs,” but working with Head
Start, among other partners, goods are
now going to be distributed in Wash-
ington, D.C., Los Angeles, Philadelphia,
Chicago and Minneapolis.
The charity still takes in an enor-
mous amount of equipment through
donations, said Ms. Seinfeld, and she
bugs family and friends “to the point
of complete annoyance” for them. But
“the game-changer for us has been the
growth of in-kind contributions by
manufacturers. So now, in addition to
distributing gently used goods, we are
also able to give families something
out of the box, which is fantastic.” At
fund-raising events, the charity raised
$3 million last year.
The group’s mission has evolved,
she noted. A “Fatherhood Initiative,”
fnancial literacy classes and benefts
screenings are also in the mix. “These
were obviously not part of the original
plans, but we are nimble.”
The daughter of a social worker who
assigned her children charity work
from a young age, Ms. Seinfeld is well
aware that “for my own kids, who have
many opportunities at a young age I
never had, it’s important to Jerry and
me that they do their part to give back.”
Asked what the biggest challenge
going forward is, she said: “The more
we accomplish, the more we realize we
are scratching the surface of the need
out there.” o

of last year’s baby goods into a campaign
