East Hampton Community Notes, June 6


One thing I always find odd out here is the dramatic change in temperature from the ocean to the bay. I understand why it happens but it just seems so extreme at points. Last week the temperature outside near the ocean, according to the thermometer in my car, was 67 degrees, yet at the bay it was 11 degrees warmer, 78.

For the first two years after moving back to the Hamptons, I lived on the ocean in Amagansett. The weather was not always so nice compared to “up the bluff,” which makes me wonder why people want to live at an ocean beach; the weather is much nicer further inland.

Jillian Lyons graduated from Dean College with Bachelor of Arts degree. Congratulations!
