The Season Begins in Sag Harbor


THERE’S A LOT to like about Sag Harbor, but groups of screaming girls riding through town in  convertibles, loud music pulsing, is not one of them. On the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, the quaint streets of the old whaling village were clogged with shoppers and diners. What recession?

But enough negativity. Here are some of the many things I do like about Sag Harbor:

Quirky decoration on houses, top, like the one with a collection of buoys owned by local celeb Billy Joel


Cool boats in the marina, like this green fiberglass number from the ’50s and the odd silver, industrial-looking one below – both also owned by Billy Joel!



Old houses aplenty from the late 18th and 19th century, many exceptionally charming


The legendary Sage Street Antiques, below – everything beautifully displayed and not horrifically priced


Arty, rustic doorway decoration


Overall, lots to look at and discover.

  1. How infuriating about the restaurant. You’ll need to ask the locals what their favorite spots are I guess.

    Those boats are amazing! So James Bond. I’m picturing a great chase scene right now. Just fantastic!

    Real buoys, not just something purchased at Pottery Barn, so nice!
