There are less than 50 days left until Memorial Day weekend, and while we at Dan’s Papers can’t wait, we also know there are many things we have to squeeze in during the next few weeks on the East End, lest we lose our chance with all that summer brings. We know that if we don’t get out and do these now, we’ll have to wait until after Labor Day before we try again…and so will you!
We continue our countdown of things to do before Memorial Day weekend on the East End with #47: Turn Left — a Lot
Anyone who spends time in the Hamptons between Memorial Day and Labor Day knows that traffic can be a drag, to put it mildly. Celebrate the offseason and our open roads this week with a long succession of left turns on the region’s busiest thoroughfares.
Try crossing the Town Green from James Lane in East Hampton and making a left on Route 27 — then try doing the same across the highway from 114. Farther west, turn left on Route 27 from Cobb Road in Water Mill, then—just for kicks—head back into Southampton, loop around at North Main Street and return to 27 so you can make an easy left heading east at the traffic light where Flying Point Road and Hampton Road intersect with the highway.
As an added bonus, zip around Sagaponack without even considering the possibility of hitting a pedestrian or bicyclist. The possibilities are nearly endless!
Come back tomorrow for 50 Things to Do Before Memorial Day #46.
