Favorite Picnic Spot

“My favorite place to picnic is on my boat docked off of Marine Park in Sag Harbor or anchoring off of Barcelona Neck. Sometimes, we’ll just sit at one of the picnic tables in Marine Park with food from Harbor Market or Provisions.”

Favorite Place to Catch the Sunset

“My son and I love spending long summer days on Long beach until the sun sinks below Jessup Neck.”

Favorite Place for Date Night

“Dopo la Spiaggia or Vine Street. Since our son likes to join date night, we go early to Sen a lot. They have a well set-up outdoor space for social distancing.”

Favorite Place for Gift Shopping

“For friends and family - Sylvester & Co. Modern General for books and homeware. For the wife - it’s Kirna Zabete. For me - Ryland Life Equipment. More importantly, we are making annual gifts to people who need it most through organizations like Hamptons Community Outreach.”
