Summer 2012 Preview: Dan’s Favorites—Scuttlehole Road

I have been asked, using my vast experience for the past 52 years with Dan’s Papers, to give you the very favorite things I enjoy out here. Don’t tell anybody about any of them. This is just for you.

One of the most famous roads in the Hamptons is Scuttlehole Road. It runs parallel to Montauk Highway north of Bridgehampton, and meanders through farm fields and polo fields and near to where Madonna lives. Scuttlehole Road was named after the giant spiders the size of dinner plates who nest at odd intervals in holes along shoulders of this five mile long road. This explains why there are no sidewalks. Drive the length of it. But don’t stop.
