2015 North Fork Craft Beer Festival

You already know Long Island’s North Fork for our wineries – but how about craft beer? Let the North Fork Craft Beer Festival – August 8th, 2015 – show you what we know about craft beer!

It may not have quite hit the national consciousness yet, but Long Island is the rapidly becoming an east coast, craft beer hot spot. Support for the local beer scene has gained real prominence over the last decade, with craft breweries springing up all up and down Long Island. Events like the North Fork Craft Beer Festival give you the opportunity to meet some of the Long Island brewing community’s new faces – as well as those from more established, regional and national brands.

The North Fork Craft Beer Festival is bringing more than fifty craft brewers together at the Calverton Links Golf Course to showcase and offer tastings of over 100 different beers and hard ciders, meet and great beer enthusiasts, give beer tasting and brewing seminars, and more.

Other distractions at the festival are set to include live music and a great selection of food trucks offering everything from pulled-pork and ribs to crab cakes and gourmet sliders.

A portion of the proceeds from the 2015 North Fork Craft Beer Festival go towards KIDS NEED MoRE and the Alzheimer’s Association’s annual walk to end Alzheimers.

Enjoy A Long Island Lighthouse Cruise!

What better way to explore the historic lighthouses of Long Island’s East End than with a Long Island lighthouse cruise with the East End Seaport Museum?

Many people don’t realize it but Southold, New York, located on the North Fork of Long Island, has more lighthouses than any other town in the United States: eight, with seven offshore, including the Plum Island light, Orient Point, Latimer Reef, Little Gull, Race Rock, Horton Point, North Dumpling, and the iconic and oft-photographed Long Beach Bar Light – more commonly referred to as the Bug Light.

That’s a lot of lighthouses for one town – luckily the East End Seaport Museum, located in the heart of Greenport Village, offers a variety of Long Island lighthouse cruises of the famous offshore lighthouses of Southold during the warmer months of the year.

A Long Island lighthouse cruise from the East End Seaport Museum will give you an opportunity to not only photograph the historic lighthouses of Long Island but also learn about them through the thorough and fascinating narration provide by local historians and occasional guest narrators. The Bug Light Tour even provides an exclusive opportunity to explore the lighthouse!

The lighthouses of Southold have seen the era of clipper ships, whalers, steamers, rum runners, and the Picket Patrol of World War II – what will you see when you visit them during your Long Island lighthouse cruise?

Beluga Whales near Long IslandDid you hear about the sighting of three beluga whales near Long Island’s North Fork last week? Pretty exciting stuff – but we see all kinds of marine life on the North Fork!

Beluga whales primarily live in arctic waters, so seeing them this far down the Atlantic coast is a rarity. There is a small community of beluga whales that call the St. Lawrence River in Quebec, Canada home, though. There have also been several sightings of beluga whales off the Maine coast and as far south as southern New Jersey over the last decade.

The three beluga whales near Long Island were seen headed east, surfacing and spouting off Shoreham Beach. Estimates place them between six and eight feet long and under three years old. One was identified by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association as a member of the St. Lawrence River population mentioned above.

Just days before, the three were seen up the coast of Long Island, in Cold Spring Harbor’s Whaler’s Cove. Observers noted that they were investigating almost every harbor along the north shore of Long Island. Some who saw them initially thought they were dolphins.

Beluga whales are intelligent and curious, sometimes even seeming to encourage interactions with people. Though not considered dangerous, it’s always a good idea to give these animals a respectful berth of at least 150 feet. While the beluga whales of the St. James river are not listed as endangered, they are protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act while in US waters.

Even though we cannot guarantee you’ll see beluga whales during your visit, there is always that possibility: Long Island’s North Fork is a great place to spot whales, fish, birds, and other wildlife – and there are plenty of other things to see and do while you’re here, too! The key is knowing what to see and where to go, when – the kind of knowledge only a local would have.

Inside Information on Long Island’s North Fork
Let Arbor View House Bed and Breakfast be your guide, your home – even your spa – during your Long Island getaway. Located on Long Island’s North Fork in the quaint and welcoming village of Greenport, our Long Island Wine Country Inn is proud to provide you with boutique hotel accommodations, award winning gourmet breakfasts, a wide range of spa services, and, best of all, an insider’s knowledge of what to do and see while on Long Island.

Tour Peconic Bay Harbor in Greenport's Solar-Powered GloryTour Peconic Bay Harbor in Glory … Greenport’s own, fume-free, virtually silent, environmentally-friendly, solar-powered, electric Fantail launch named Glory, that is!

Glory is a 1990 reproduction of a 30 foot Fantail launch, a style of craft popularized during the late 1800’s as advances in steam, gasoline, naptha, and electric-power allowed for the creation of small power boats. Originally built by the ELCO company, Fantail launches were quite popular with both the public and luminaries of the time like J.P. Morgan, and the Tsar of Russia.

Greenport’s Glory was converted to solar power in 2009, with solar cells on the roof at the dock charging Glory’s batteries and effectively eliminating the power boat’s carbon footprint. Glory is the only boat you can tour Peconic Bay Harbor in that produces zero emissions – in fact, it’s the only environmentally-friendly tour boat operating in New York state, period!

This environmentally-friendly approach to powering the boat has some obvious long-term pluses – but don’t forget the short-term ones, either: a small, electric ship like Glory produces little noise and virtually no fumes, meaning that touring onboard her is similar to gliding around in a quiet canoe – except that there’s room for you and 13 of your friends on Glory!

Tour Peconic Bay Harbor aboard Glory with its classic lines trimmed in elegant mahogany and gold, and you’ll enter a bygone era as it glides silently and gently along all the little nooks and crannies of this famous and historic bay.

Glory offers four different, 45 minute cruises of Peconic Bay Harbor, from Memorial Day through the end of September, weather and traffic dependent – but every tour aboard Glory offers a unique and enjoyable time, so don’t be too disappointed if the cruise you’d hoped for isn’t available.

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.
