We're getting ready for Halloween and dressing up early this weekend on 1st Look. Ashley is taking her turn as a dancing jalapeno, tiny Elvis Presley, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and transforms into Namaste Jackson for some of RuPaul's Drag Queen extraordinaires. It's all after Lin-Manuel Miranda hosts SNL this Saturday on NBC!
It’s the natural elements. The Earth. The air. The fire. And the water, that have called so many out to the East End of Long Island. And it’s the human element, that keeps people coming back for more. On Ashley’s first visit out East, she’s surfing the famed beaches of Montauk and eating the local catch. She’s working with molten metal at a landmarked blacksmith shop in the town of Springs, farming for fresh produce in Amagansett, sipping on rosé in Sagaponack, and riding off into the sunset on horseback at the oldest cattle ranch in The United States. Hop aboard a sea plane taking off from Manhattan's East River and come fly with Ashley as she takes in the beauty, the tranquility, and the purity of The East End of Long Island on the season premiere of 1st Look.
On The East End of Long Island, the waters don't simply surround you, they're a part of you. Sign up for a surf lesson with local instructor Austin Echardt of Austin's Surf Camp at the world famous Ditch Plains Beach in Montauk and take in the stunning scenery while riding the waves. Once you've worked up an appetite, make your way over to Navy Beach where they're serving up locally-sourced produce and fresh seafood on their private beach facing Fort Pond Bay.
Within the Charles Parson Smithy, a Springs Long Island landmark, local artist and sculptor James DeMartis is weilding fire and metal to his will, combining 10,000-year-old metalsmithing traditions with modern day machinery, to make one of a kind works of art.
When the fast paced New York City life gets to be too overwhelming, head to the East River, charter a flight with seaplane operators Fly The Whale, cut through the air, and head out to The East End of Long Island. When you touch down, rest and relax at the famed Gurney's Resort & Seawater Spa. Grab a meal and cocktail served al fresco and then ride off into the sunset on horseback at the legendary Deep Hollow Ranch.
Some of the most fertile soil in the country lies beneath your feet out on The East End of Long Island, and at Amber Waves Farms in Amagansett they're growing over 300 varieties of fruits and vegetables for consumption. Just down the road in Sagaponack, Wolffer Estate Vineyard utilizes the Earth to produce crisp, dry and youthful wines that put a song into your heart and a smile on your face.
