Weitz is a freelance writer whose work can be found in The New York Times, Newsday, Edible East End, Long Island Pulse, Luxe, and Gotham. She looks for the humanity and cultural significance in stories that spotlight the joys of living: music, food, art, and travel. She writes from her front porch in Sag Harbor. In this issue, Weitz shows us around Twin Peaks in Southampton (page 274) and interviews real estate brokers Jessica J. von Hagn (page 302) and Susan Breitenbach (page 312). You know it’s summer when: There’s sand in my sheets. What’s the best fitness fad you’ve tried? My most outside-the-box class was in African dance and drumming with Dan Bailey and Lauren Chu, which awakened my energy and toned my body while I was lost in the bliss of the music.
