FROM THE PUBLISHER
It’s hard to believe, but we’ve come to the end of a phenomenal summer spent enjoying our beaches and bays, our art institutions and theaters, and our fields and farms. As we lean in to the season’s final weeks, the East End is thick with residents and visitors—whether they are riders and their families here for the Hampton Classic, kids returning from sleepaway camp, or guests of Hamptons homeowners who’ve come from nearby and around the globe—and everybody is here to support the most creative demographic in the world. It may sound grand, but it is true, especially now in late August when everyone inhabits their Hamptons haunts for the final hurrah of summer’s high season.
I invite you now to take a moment to appreciate your special surroundings and our wonderful year-round community. I look forward to seeing you—for the rest of this glorious summer; during our beautiful, long fall season; and on into the winter as we wind down 2017 and prepare to celebrate 40 years of Hamptons magazine in 2018. But especially now, make sure you get out and experience the best of the East End—at yoga class or paddleboarding, dining in one of our fine local restaurants, at an art exhibit or farmers market, and at the theater at Westhampton Beach, Bay Street, or Guild Hall—and I’ll see you in town!
