Get Artsy in the Hamptons

Here are two surprising facts about the Hamptons: Some of these quaint Long Island beach towns date back to the 17th century, and art’s abstract impressionist movement was founded there in East Hampton. So not only can you find adorable weathered-shingle homes but also serious art cred. Jackson Pollock, for one, did his drip thing on the floor of one of said cottages. You can visit Pollock’s house (above), and other shrines to the past, but where are the contemporary art and artists in the Hamptons these days? That’s what I wrote about in my recent travel story for New York magazine, along with great places to stay, eat and play. I didn’t include the beach (below) but that goes without saying, right? (This one’s Main Beach in East Hampton.)

Happy weekend, hope you’re heading “out east”…
