For the Love of Roses

Posted on 08 September 2014

“She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her… Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her…”

Why Here? Musicians on the Influence of the East End: Nancy Atlas

Posted on 26 August 2014

Nancy Atlas spent her childhood in Commack. The daughter of an avid fisherman, she began coming out to the East End with her family from the time she can remember. Eventually, her family bought a house at Lazy Point when she was 7. “We spent any day off there we could,” she says, laughing. “It was literally 1970’s jump into the station wagon, pee in the mayo jar and head out east.” At 17, she moved to England to attend Cambridge University, where she studied art and art history, with an eye toward a career as a graphic artist in the advertising business.

Still Early, but a Big Win for Pierson Soccer

Posted on 27 September 2013

After an hour of tightly-played and highly-intense soccer, Jack Fitzpatrick found himself alone with only Southold goaltender John Charles Funke standing between him and the Pierson-Bridgehampton soccer team’s biggest win of the year so far.

Lady Whalers Go Up Against the Best

Posted on 27 September 2013

The Pierson-Bridgehampton girls soccer team, which has struggled in recent years, is re-building and got a close-up look this week at what the program’s desired result might look like.

With a budding group of young players, a dedicated senior class and a new head coach in Lisa DiRussa, the Lady Whalers earned their first win of the young season, a 3-0 victory over Smithtown Christian, on September 18. The team visited perennial powerhouse Mattituck on Friday, however, and came away with a 5-0 loss.

Posted on 27 September 2013

With the days getting cooler and the nights getting longer, landscaping may be the last thing on your mind. But according to experts around the East End, autumn is the critical time for those looking to perfect their yards for next season.
