Does anyone know what the story is regarding Station Road Restaurant? I read an article in the East Hampton Star about a dispute over what to do with the former Water Mill train station, but it made no mention of turning it into a restaurant. How then, to explain the sign? Apparently its fate should have already been sealed, but I'm having difficulty obtaining it. More photos and official closing note below:
Those of you accustomed to a peaceful cuppa at Hamptons Coffee in Water Mill followed by some leisurely produce-picking at the Green Thumb next door were in for an (unpleasant?) interruption today. New York's not-so-universally-beloved housewives were filming scenes for season 2 of their reality show at both Hamptons hotspots.
With RHONJ soon to enter the fray, it's nice to see RHONY stop trying to be hipsters (Cake Shop? Really?), or Fauxropean, and start sticking to what they know: local joints beloved for their reasonably high quality and high chances of running into Christie, Kelly, and Jerry.

Water Mill is tiny, but it's full of potato fields, woodland trails, and golf courses just begging for a sneaker trampling. One of my favorite runs starts where Cook's Lane meets Scuttle Hole Road. Take Cook's until you reach the second series of fields (after the little house with about five minivans parked around its lawn). Run all the way down the field on the dirt part so you don't trample the plants, and bang a left when you reach the Atlantic Golf Course. Ignore the curious or irritated looks of the landscapers and golfers, and run until you reach dusty and narrow Noyac Path. More»
Does anybody else get mixed up at the Watermill Village area??? There is so much going on with this sign and so many arrows for such a small little village area. Is the sign REALLY necessary? Like many other things out east, (how many names can you give route 27!), I'm afraid this may just be here to confuse us more.
While dining at Suki Zuki, Rachelle and I got to talking with our table neighbors --it's a sociable kind of place, and cozy, and I couldn't help but notice the utter fabulousness of one of the women's (Linda Tepper, it turns out, who owns Nick&Nora and Tepper Jackson) purse. I suppose I should expect great accessories from the woman who brought us these, but that Tepper had purchased the bag in Morocco over twenty years put the cool-dial way past eleven.
Penny Candy Shop in Watermill is up for sale (tear), and, though it needs a lot of work, we think this is an attractive piece of real estate. Here's hoping that another kitschy store picks this spot up so we can get our candy fill...the last thing we need is one more J. McLaughlin around these parts.

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.
