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.

Uihlein’s Marina Turns 60

Henry Uihlein (pronounced “You Line”) sat behind his desk at Uihlein’s Marina, taking one phone call after another. “Yes, the fishing’s good, we can rent you a boat.

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.

Nostalgic Martell’s Still Smokin’

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.

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.
