North Fork Beaches and ParksWith Memorial Day Weekend sneaking up on us, summer can’t be too far behind, meaning the urge to get out into the sun will continue to grow. Long Island’s North Fork beaches and parks offer lots of opportunities to do just that!

The North Fork of Long Island is rife with great parks and trails, making it the perfect adult playground with North Fork beaches and parks provide lots of great scenery to relax and enjoy as well as numerous trails for hiking.

Below is a list of some of the more popular North Fork beaches and parks:

Fifth Street Beach and Park – Foot of Fifth Street, Greenport
Greenport’s Fifth Street Beach and Park is a gorgeous beach with a playground and grassy picnic area located between 5th and 6th Streets on Peconic Bay.

Norman L. Klipp Park – Manhanset Avenue, Greenport
A spacious beach with a park and boat ramp located at the end of Manhanset Avenue in Greenport. Also known as Gull Pond Beach, Norman L. Klipp Park offers clear views of Shelter Island and its harbor. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer season and the beach gains a playground for the kiddies.

Greenport Historic District Walking Tour
Greenport Village is fairly compact, fitting easily within 1.2 square miles. This makes it the perfect size for the self-guided, walking tour of its historic district, a map of which is available in pdf form here.

Arshamomaque Pond Preserve – 63445 Main Road, Southold
Arshamomaque Pond Preserve is part of the Long Island Pine Barrens Maritime Reserve, listed for protection because of its biological, scenic, and recreational value. Centered on the Peconic Bays, Arshamomaque Pond Preserve is a federally designated National Estuary and ranks as one of the most valuable and productive coastal and marine ecosystems remaining in the nation.

Kenney’s Beach – Kenney’s Road, Southold
Located at the dead-end of Kenney’s Road in Southold, Kenney’s Beach is connected to McCabe’s Beach by a half-mile beach trail, making the two a beachcomber’s paradise.

McCabe’s Beach – North Sea Road, Southold
Overlooking Long Island Sound and located one half mile to the east of Kenney’s Beach on North Sea Road in Southold, McCabe’s Beach offers public restrooms, lifeguards, and permit parking.

Southold Town Beach – 53005 Route 48, Southold
A popular spot for sunbathers, Southold Town Beach boasts 960 feet of beach fronting Long Island Sound. Other features include a picnic pavilion, sandy playground area, swing, and lifeguards in the summer.

Goose Creek Beach – North Bayview Road, Southold
Goose Creek Beach is popular with both sunbathers and kayakers – the latter because of Goose Creek’s calm waters. Located at the head of Goose Creek, the beach offers easy access to both Long Island Sound and Goose Creek.

Dam Pond Maritime Preserve – 11855 Route 48, East Marion
Dam Pond Maritime Preserve is 36 acres of scrubland, grasslands, and tidal flats dotted with saltwater marshes and woodlands surrounding a protected bay. A walking trail that winds throughout is 1.2 miles long.

Goldsmith’s Inlet Park – Route 48, Peconic
35 acre Goldsmith’s Inlet Park features old growth woodlands and tidal wetlands with a 1/2 mile trail leading to Long Island Sound.

Railroad Museum of Long IslandTrain fans and history buffs alike will enjoy a visit to either branch (or both!) of the Railroad Museum of Long Island, located in Greenport and Riverhead, NY.

It’s natural that Greenport host a branch of the Railroad Museum of Long Island as Greenport is the reason the Long Island Railroad was built in the first place! While having a railroad on Long Island would have happened sooner or later, early Greenport’s buzz of commerce made the inevitability that much more of a going concern. While the rail link to Boston never materialized, the one from Greenport to Brooklyn was and, because of it, Long Island’s fame flourished and communities began to spring up along the tracks.

The Railroad Museum of Long Island details this long and fascinating history with exhibits, rolling stock, railway structures, and even a historic, pneumatic railroad turntable! While the Riverhead site contains the majority of the museum’s rolling stock, the Greenport site boasts a number of rare and historic railroad buildings and objects, such as the aforementioned turntable.

Greenport’s railroad turntable is a fascinating item. Used to turn locomotive engines around for the return journey up the line to Brooklyn, the turntable at Greenport is unique in that it is pneumatic: operated by use of compressed air, generated by the very steam engine that sat upon it needing turned around! This railroad turntable is one of only three pneumatic turntables thought to still exist in the world. Plans are in the works to get this fascinating piece of historical railroad equipment back up and running.

The Railroad Museum of Long Island contains many one-of-a-kind and rare attractions like this. From a steam engines to a double-decker passenger car, from historic railway structures to a miniature layout of the original Long Island line, the Railroad Museum of Long Island never fails to please.

Tall Ships of America 2015

History comes to life with three masts and a crows nest at Long Island’s Greenport Village this year with a 4th of July visit from the Tall Ships of America 2015!

Greenport village has a long and storied history, having first been settled in the 1600’s to become a major whaling and shipbuilding port. Then came the fishing and huge oyster industries which brought the railroad and, consequently, over-fishing. Greenport, like many ports, made changes to adapt and improve itself, becoming a major destination for thousands of visitors throughout the year.

Thus, it should come as no surprise that Greenport would have the honor of playing host to the Tall Ships of America 2015 – and not on just any date but on Independence Day, July 4th, 2015!

The featured ship for the Tall Ships of America 2015 will be the frigate Hermione La Fayette. An exact replica of the historic French ship that brought French general Marquis de Lafayette to the United States to take part in the American Revolution, the Hermione was a 12-pounder Concorde class frigate of the French Navy that was grounded and was wrecked in 1793.

The wooden replica of the Hermione was begun in 1997 after a group of enthusiasts formed the Hermione-Lafayette Association. Built utilizing 18th century shipbuilding techniques – plus some modern concessions made to meet international maritime safety regulations. Despite her three masts and sextant, for example, the Hermione is required to have an engine and modern navigational equipment.

Another three-masted tall-ship, the Barque Picton Castle based in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada, is also scheduled to make a Tall Ships of America 2015 appearance. Don’t miss it!

Au Courant QuartetThe 2nd annual Great Music Sunday concert brings the Au Courant Quartet, four Juilliard musicians, to Greenport on Sunday, March 22, 2015!

The mission of the Great Music Sunday series, which began in 2014, is to introduce audiences to up-and-coming musical professionals, promote musical expression, and to inspire local, musical youth to greater performance heights – and the inclusion of the Au Courant Quartet for the second year goes a long way towards continuing to fulfill that goal.

The Au Courant Quartet plans to present Dvořák’s String Quartet No. 12 in F Major and Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 2 in E minor to the Great Music Sunday concert audience; two of the most popular selections from the chamber music repertoire.

After the performance, members of the Au Courant Quartet will engage the audience in a question and answer session, giving audience members an opportunity to gain deeper insight into the performers as musicians and how music has influenced their lives.

Four accomplished alumni of New York city’s famous Juilliard School, the Au Courant Quartet is made up of Kobi Malkin on violin, Sofia Nowik on cello, Daniel Kim on viola, and Matous Michal also on violin.

Kobi Malkin, violinist from Israel, has received the prestigious Ilona Kornhauser prize and is a fellow in Ensemble ACJW, a joint program of Carnegie Hall, the Juilliard School and the Weill Music Institute.

Cellist Sofia Nowik teaches cello through a nonprofit music-mentoring program in New York City called Opportunity Music and is also on the faculty at the Great Neck Music Conservatory.

Daniel Kim, violist, has received an impressive number of honors and awards, including the the Neale-Silva Young Artist Competition, Tanglewood Music Center Maurice Schwartz Prize, the UW-Madison concerto competition, the Aspen Festival Orchestral String Fellowship, the UW School of Music Alumni Association scholarship, and the Kato Perlman scholarship. He was on the faculty at the Northern Lights Chamber Music Institute, and has led orchestra sectionals for the Juilliard Pre-College Division.

Czech violinist Matous Michal is considered one of the most promising musicians of his generation. Recipient of numerous awards and prizes as a performer and interpreter of the chamber genre, Matous regularly appearing as a soloist with major orchestras and conductors, including James Levine and Kurt Masur.

Greenport Harbor BrewingWe’ve talked an awful lot about North Fork wineries recently, so I felt it was time to shift the focus on a similar subject: Long Island craft breweries. Did you know there are nearly 30 breweries or brewpubs on Long Island, including our very own Greenport Harbor Brewing?

Greenport Harbor Brewing has been brewing craft beer on Long Island’s North Fork since July of 2009. Initially producing a modest 3,000 barrels of beer a year, Greenport Harbor Brewing’s popularity outstripped its production capacity.

In response, they expanded their operations to a second location in Peconic, NY in 2014. This new location increased the breweries potential output more than 18 times: with an eye at starting out around 10,000 barrels a year, the new digs allow the capacity to produce as much as 55,000 barrels a year!

Having two locations allows Greenport Harbor Brewing not just greater production capacity but also more venues to sample their delicious wares!

Both the original Greenport Harbor Brewing location on Carpenter Street and the newer Peconic brewery feature taprooms. There are even plans to eventually serve food at the Peconic location but the initial concentration has been on the new expansion in brewing capacity. While, due to its size, the Peconic location produces the bulk of the breweries bottled offerings, the original Greenport Breswery will focus on small-batch brews.

Greenport Harbor Brewing’s main line includes Black Duck Porter, Otherside IPA, Hopnami IPA, Longest Night Oatmeal Stout, Summer Ale, Harbor Ale, and a number of limited, special or seasonal brews including Cuvaison, a Belgian style golden ale utilizing grapes and juice from local wineries.

North Fork Long Island WineriesMany people still don’t realize how many Long Island wineries there are or that they’re in possession of some of the country’s best viticultural areas!

The Long Island winemaking industry has grown by leaps and bounds since the first winery opened here in 1975: Hargrave Vineyards in Cutchogue (now Castello di Borghese Vineyard & Winery). The Long Island Wine Council now boasts some 3000 acres of vines and 48 members, all but 9 of which reside on Long Island’s North Fork, near Greenport village and our inn, Arbor View House Bed and Breakfast!

And why are the majority of Long Island wineries clustered on Long Island’s North Fork? Why, beyond of our delightfully sunny, maritime climate, there is the soil. Long Island wineries benefit from our glacial soils that provide ample nutrients, moisture, and drainage for delicate and demanding grape vines. As I mentioned above, The American Viticultural Areas of Long Island are recognized as some of the finest in the US producing delicious varietals like merlot, chardonnay, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and a great many others.

Should you decide to visit Long Island’s North Fork – and you really should – you’ll be happy to hear that most of the vineyards and wineries enjoy visitors and, more importantly, offer tastings. Many Long Island wineries also hold special events throughout the year, too – most of which are listed on The Long Island Wines website: www.liwines.com.

Visit Long Island's Greenport Village

Long Island’s Greenport Village, named by Forbes magazine in 2011 as one of the prettiest towns in the US, has a long, interesting history and remains a quaint and appealing, Long Island destination.

Greenport Village was initially settled in the mid-1600’s as part of Long Island’s Southold by colonists from New Haven, Connecticut. After going by a number of different names, a public meeting in 1831 cemented “Greenport” in place.

Greenport Village’s aquatic geography made it perfect for both whaling and shipbuilding between 1795 and the mid-1800’s. Then fishing became a major income, boosted by the arrival of the railroad, and, by the first half of the 20th century, oystering.

Since those early, booming days when “sustainable fishing” had yet to become a phrase, much less a concept, Greenport Village has slowed down a bit, retracted some – and so much for the better. Though its economy is still largely linked to the sea, today, Greenport’s biggest export is happily relaxed people. Folks who’ve discovered this tranquil village on Long Island’s North Fork and come to enjoy long walks on the beach, feasting on local seafood, and staying at locally owned bed &amp breakfast inns like ours – Arbor View House.

Greenport Village is part of a larger community here on Long Island’s North Fork and, as such, is surrounded by wineries, art galleries, cafes, and gourmet restaurants serving locally harvested fish and produce paired with wines made from grapes nursed in local vineyards. While Greenport Village has changed with the times, plenty of that old, quaint world still flourishes here, allowing for a slower, more relaxed pace of life.

A few interesting Greenport Village facts:

  • Greenport’s Antique Carousel in Mitchell Park was built in 1920 and is one of the few in the US still offering a brass ring grab.
  • The Long Beach Bar “Bug” Light Lighthouse is one of only 4, offshore lighthouses in the US that can be toured.
  • The Devil’s Own starring Harrison Ford and Brad Pitt, was filmed in and around Greenport in 1997 – Harrison Ford apparently enjoyed the Harborfront Deli on Front Street, as he spent much of his free time there.
  • Yachting Magazine voted Greenport one of the 50 Best Yachting Destinations in North America in 2012.
  • Long Island was named one of the Top 10 Wine Destinations in the US – with Greenport getting a specific nod as a popular place to visit.

So come on out to Long Island’s North Fork and Greenport Village: you deserve it – and Happy New Year!
