Dreams do come true...this week I hopped a V1 Jet seaplane to Montauk...with Sam Talbot. (You know, the Surf Lodge chef - who just happens to be very handsome in addition to his talents in the kitchen.) It's not everyday I get a morning phone call offering me a flight from NYC to Montauk, a trip that with zero traffic takes 3 hours! I am blessed with good friends and they always think of me, so off I went to 23rd street and the East River to meet my pilot and board my 40 minute flight to the Hamptons. I arrived to see a perfectly safe and moderately-sized seaplane drifting in the water. The president of the company, Andrew Zarrow, met us at the dock and convinced me that though I have never flown in such a small aircraft, his pilots were professionals.

So, we boarded, buckled in and sat back for an unbelievably tranquil and beautiful flight that allows you to view every estate and private summer home just a few hundred feet below. Sam and I mainly discussed how pleasant the trip was after lots of fun debauchery at Goldbar the night before.

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.
