A special Curbed Hamptons operative sends along the above snap, with this note: "Main Beach, East Hampton, this morning. Prep work underway! But it's cold down here, big sea breeze—ain't missin much!" And with that, we formally welcome you to Summer 2009.
If you've got your camera or cameraphone with you this weekend—or anytime—in the Hamptons, and snap something good, consider sending it our way: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your name in lights, glory, and everlasting fame await.
