Our Village has quieted down some since summer ended and School began. “Indian Summer, better known as fall, is upon us. Chilly nights, chilly mornings, warm, refreshing days. An invigorating change of climate. Soon leaves will be turning their splendid colors, time for apple picking, pie making, pumpkin carvings, Fall Festivals, Arts & Crafts Fairs, Farmers Markets, Oyster Festival, Sidewalk Sales and lots of seasonal entertainment here in our Village. Enjoy the months ahead, explore our area and the surrounding neighborhoods. Take a ride to the North Fork or travel the East End all the way the Montauk! Ride to and from Moriches Inlet to Shinnecock on Dune Road. There are lots of things to do and you can still take a walk on the beach whenever you want! Make the most of these wondrous days as winter comes soon enough and stays long! Happy Fall, Happy Holidays! See you in the Spring!
