Inside-the-Salt-Cave

Montauk Salt Cave

Here we lie on ergonomic lounge chairs, covered in soft red blankets, taking deep breaths of the world’s purest healing salt in the Montauk Salt Cave. In this dark, serene space we can only see a soft orange and red glow on the walls emanating from the salt lamps around us. Overhead, in a roof made of 8 tons of salt from the Himalayan Mountains of Pakistan, are hundreds of tiny shining white lights that look like stars twinkling in the night sky.

Fishing? Crush your barbs

Here we go!! The excitement, rush, sleepless nights, missed work, exhausting disappointment, and raw exhilaration of fall fishing in Montauk is upon us. Bass in the rips, on the rocks, under the light…albies exploding bait everywhere, monster blues pushing bunker onto the beach, arms turned to jelly…you know the routine. Fall fishing… yet another reason to love it here at the End.

Montauk Dance Scene Starts at Two

At a young age, Montauker Laura Cisco couldn’t stop moving. “I remember standing in front of the glass oven door in my family’s kitchen, working on my dance moves. It was all I ever wanted to do,” she says. “When I was eight my family moved to Montauk from Queens. There weren’t any dance classes or studios then so my Mom would drive me back and forth to Queens just so I could follow my passion,” she recalled.

Montauk Goes Oh So Boho at NIBI-MTK

One stylish girl after another walked by as I watched Days of Wild play at Atlantic Terrace with my family. The kids love running around the open, safe courtyard at Terrace; all the better if they have a fun band playing that I can enjoy with friends. I figured all the lovelies were going to the bohemian boutique, NIBI-MTK, tucked into the north side of the great lawn and, upon closer inspection, I was right. I had met NIBI’s owner and designer Kristin Sheeler at a party in 2016 and figured I’d go say Hi to see what all the traffic was about.

Harvest on Fort Pond

A soft pink glow settled over the water at Harvest on Fort Pond,   enchanting diners from almost every window at 7 pm one Wednesday in May. We could tell this large yet warm restaurant in Montauk was popular as even mid-week there was about an hour wait.

My dining partner and I cruised through a cozy cocktail area outside the main bar where people sat on high tables eating, or drinking. The bar had a lively crowd in this sophisticated dining spot. The manager, Brienne, seated us at a table for two in the back facing the amazing Fort Pond landscape. Part of the beauty of Montauk is its magical lighting. We watched the last rays of sun slip behind the watery horizon, leaving only streaks of lavender and pink. So far so good.

A respectable selection of a rather niche product is incongruously displayed behind the counter in Jimmy Martell’s quaint, nostalgic store on Main Street, which for decades has supplied Montauk with a broad range of traditional staples such as stationary, gifts, greeting cards, newspapers, beach chairs, umbrellas, maps, hiking books, candy, toys, games and nautical gifts. Enter cigars, and Cuban ones at that.

Small aircraft parked at the Montauk Airport

Montauk Airport Flies Low with a High Profile

The Montauk Airport was constructed in 1957 to improve access to the hamlet by Perry Duryea Jr, who often piloted his own plane between Montauk and Albany while serving as a member of the New York State Assembly.

Today, the airport, which is out near the end of East Lake Drive, is used by recreational pilots, weekenders, beach day trippers, sport fishermen, golfers… and yes, a celebrity or two, who fly in to enjoy our beautiful hamlet in season. KMTP mainly serves the local community and its seasonal visitors, much like the small airports of Block Island, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Cape Cod.
