Q: How did you get to the North Fork? A: I’m born and raised on the North Fork. My parents moved there in the 70s, are still married and living in the same house.  But when I was old enough I moved around quite a bit—I like to travel to surf, visit different oceans and cultures. I came back to the North Fork after college, and ended up staying a little by accident—a stroke of…

Q: How did you get to the North Fork? A: I grew up coming out to the North Fork. My family was in the restaurant business, we were closed one day a week, and that was the day we would come to the North Fork. That’s what we would do as a family. Year round. Q: One day a week on the North Fork—your family’s only day off—year round. That’s cool. Did you have any…

Kate Altman’s Path from Film & Interior Design to Needle Arts Shopkeeper

By

Q: Altman’s Needlearts is such an unusual store, with so many yarns, tools, and finished products. There’s nothing like it for many miles. How did you get into needle arts? A: I got into needle arts when I was a tiny kid, because I always loved to make things, but that wasn’t how I made my living. I was a production designer in film and an interior designer. I had my own company for 35 years. My interior design specialty…

Adam Lovett of aMano and A Lure on a Lifetime in the Restaurant Industry & Putting Down North Fork Roots

By

Q: How did you come to the North Fork? A: Through a series of restaurants with Tom Schaudel. In 2006 I’d had a seasonal restaurant on Dune Road in West Hampton Beach with him, called Passion Fish. That was a relocation of his Woodbury restaurant of the same name. Our lease wasn’t renewed, so then I helped him out with the Jedediah Hawkins Inn, which was another project of his at that time. We stayed…

By

Q: How did you come to the North Fork?  A: My parents used to summer here so I did too.  After college I got a job in NYC at a bank, did that for 10 months but didn’t like it. So I moved to the North Fork full time, returning to work as a captain in Sag Harbor—wake board/water ski boats. Captaining and coaching on wakeboard/ski boats had been my summer job for years, since…

Giovanni Borghese on his Vineyard and his Journey to it, from Philly through Cuba, the Atlantic and the Loss of his Parents.

By

Q: How did you come to the North Fork? A: My parents acquired Hargrave Vineyard in 1999 when I was 14, and we moved here from center city Philadelphia. The move was a big culture shock. From center city to a one hundred acre farm—particularly starting high school—so much was different. Luckily, I was met with a community with open arms. As a new kid in high school I could not have been more accepted…
