Some things are inevitable: death, taxes, and Montauk eventually winning a Curbed Cup. The hipster hamlet was an also-ran for years, but finally bested East Hampton Village to take the prestigious fake trophy this year. It's the place to see and be seen in the summers, while also being home to a vital commercial fishing operation year round. So congratulations to "The End," and as for the rest of the competitors, better luck next year.
