LETTER

FROM THE PUBLISHER

Hamptons Magazine - - Letter - DE­BRA HALPERT

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!
