As the New Year begins, I had a sudden reminiscence of the good old days in the Hamptons (watching too much Gossip Girl) – New York’s summer playground for the rich, the famous, the fabulous and well, trendy New Yorkers. Having spent so much time there as Mother had a beautiful home near the beach of Southampton – 1 and 1/2 hours away from NYC, I decided why not share my trip down memory lane of what must be one of the most exciting places to live in. See why the Hamptons is the home for the likes of Steven Spielberg, Billy Joel, Russell Simmons, P.Diddy, Martha Stewart, Denise Rich, Calvin Klein, Kim Cattrall, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks. So here is to all things typical of the Hamptons!
