Those heading through Westhampton Beach on Wednesday morning may have noticed it looks more like the holiday season as opposed to fall. That's because the USA network's Royal Pains is filming for it's fourth season.
On location were actors Paulo Costanzo and Brooke D’Orsay.
Southampton Village police executed a search warrant in Mastic Beach Tuesday at the home of a level-2 sex offender, who they say put a video camera in a dressing room during a swimsuit fashion show.
Robert L. Liguori, a 51-year-old self-described artist/photographer was photographing women during the July 12 fashion show at 230 Elm in Southampton Village, police said. Det. Sgt. Herman Lamison said Liguori entered the women's dressing room, hid the camera and walked out.
"One of the victims realized there was a camera going on the room," Lamison said. She alerted the others, he said, and police learned of the incident a week later.
When Riverhead resident Renee Hayes was six months pregnant with her daughter, she was faced with the unthinkable: her husband was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer.
The next 12 years were a journey filled with uncertainty and fear but also, with hope, encouragement, and most of all, love, from the sea of friends and family who stepped up to support her family.
And after Hayes' husband, Edward, 51, known to all as "Woody," received the gift of life in May when an anonymous donor made a bone marrow transplant possible, the Hayes family has made it their mission to give back, to help others waiting for their miracle.
Last of WWII ‘Hooligan Navy’ to Lead Maritime Parade
When Jack Fisher was 19, a bum knee from a football injury kept him from joining the armed forces during World War II. That’s until 1942, when the opportunity came about to join the Corsair Fleet — or "Hooligan Navy," a little-known band of civilian yachtsmen and fishermen called upon to patrol the Atlantic when Germany’s U-boat attacks were destroying merchant ships along the East Coast of the U.S., throwing the unprepared U.S. Navy off guard.
Fisher, who will lead this year’s Greenport Maritime Festival Parade as Grand Marshal, was only one of 300 young but experienced seamen to join the crew, which was headquarted at Townsend Manor Inn in Greenport. Large wooden sailboats were donated to the effort — one of them, the Zaida, will be on display at the festival as it has been in year’s past.
Fire Marshal Deems Cigar Cause of Clearwater Blaze
Investigators are blaming a smoldering cigar forthe fire that broke out on the deck of a house in Springs on Sunday morning.
East Hampton Town Fire Marshal Tom Baker said a discarded cigar blew onto the wood deck, catching the decking, cedar shingles and even some unused fireplace logs on fire.
