Ready to surf and sail today in the Hamptons! [Photo via]
You don't need to be airborne to appreciate the beauty of the Hamptons, although it certainly doesn't hurt. Since I'm going to assume most of us don't have access to a door-less helicopter, thankfully photographer Gray Malin does, and we can let him capture the scene for us. Gray has previously documented the coasts of Europe, Australia and South America, and he finally headed out to the Hamptons this summer to find some pretty sweet beach scenes. More»
You know the old predicament where it's gorgeous beach weather, but you just want to post up at a bar and drink? There's a little secret hidden in Amagansett that solves this age old issue. Drive on Route 27 through Amagansett town and turn right on Indian Wells Highway, park your car when the street ends and hand a right on the beach. Oh, whatever you do, don't forget to bring a 30-rack of beer. You're going to need it. More»

A paddle out was held in Montauk Friday evening in memory of New Yorker and skateboarding legend Andy Kessler who died unexpectedly last Monday during his trip to the East End. Kessler spent his life pioneering the sport and went on to design skate parks in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Montauk where he picked up his love for the surf. Hundreds gathered on the beach to pay tribute to the skate board pioneer with friends, locals, the ocean, and their surf boards...
Browsing through my friends' Fourth of July pictures, I stumbled upon a swimsuit I just had to get my hands on. The red, white and blue sailboats make it both patriotic and nautical at the same time, and perfect for the summer holiday or anytime you want to hop on a boat- or just want to look like you might. Lucky for me, even if my friend is in California, that's not the only place the Shoshanna suit is; You can order it online from Bloomingdale's (and it's on sale!). Ah, the wonders of the internet!
[GofG Hampton's cloudy backyard]
The summer has officially started and we don't want to see any more days like this. The GofG Hamptons crew is still waiting for some sunshine with temperatures in the high digits since it IS June and there is a beach in our backyard in desperate need of some visitors including the likes of Kendra, Carson, Theresa, and Kristin. Where are you sunshine?
Okay so I thought I'd make it through the week without having to post on that strange creature that has washed up on the shores of Montauk....you know the one that EVERYONE's been talking about. What is it? Real or photoshopped? Sea turtle without shell? Skinned Racoon? Mutated dog from a lab off the coasts? Well, quite frankly I AM starting to care about getting to the bottom of this mess...if only so I don't ever have to stare at that disgusting photo again! (If you have been living in a hole and care to see the thing go HERE, you can even vote on what you think it is...WHAT FUN!)
Ah we may NEVER actually know the answer to this mystery. Sometimes the throw up of the sea can be strange indeed. Reminds me of this post from last year (see photo above). This poor guy got beached around Quogue....sad story for sure, but at least we could IDENTIFY the creature that time!

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
