Montauk.....The End! The very eastern tip of Long Island. 15 years ago Montauk was a rather sleepy relaxed place...just flip flops and t shirts...but lately it's become kind of chic.....still nice and much less fashiony compared to the "other" east end towns. Surrounded by water, beautiful beaches, great public golf course & pool and a surfers paradise. Someone I know was surfing there and swears Jimmy Buffett was next to him on a surf board...it's possible...he owns a small house there by the beach. Once the domain of blue collar families and the last holdout for t-shirts and sneakers, Montauk has become the new hot spot over the last 10 years with the younger crowds. New restaurants, shopping and consequently, higher real estate price points. But it still has charm with active docks and fishing industry, great surfing and miles of beautiful beaches. Years ago the Rolling Stones holed up in the local Memory Motel and had one helluva party. Also, big surfing community for all you Boomer surfer dudes.
