Billy Joel’s Boat Docked in Greenport

One of the North Fork’s gems, Greenport is becoming quite the hotspot these days. It appears Billy Joel made a stop in the seaside village just one day after the cast of HBO’s Girls filmed there.

Joel‘s downeaster lobster/swordfish hybrid boat “Alexa” was docked in Greenport on Wednesday afternoon. The boat, named for his and Christie Brinkley‘s daughter Alexa Ray Joel, can often be seen moored in Sag Harbor, near the Dockside restaurant and his home on Bay Street. It is also the subject of Joel‘s hit song “Downeaster Alexa” from his 1989 album Stormfront.
