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.
