Overview

The Hamptons have long been a haven for the world’s elite. Its breathtaking vistas inspired Walt Whitman and Winslow Homer; its social forebears include Gerald and Sara Murphy entertaining Léger and Fitzgerald; Kurt Vonnegut, Jackson Pollock, and Andy Warhol all found inspiration on America’s Riviera. Spectacular estates from the Gilded Age rival the sprawling mansions of the bold-faced names attracted to this beachfront strip on Long Island each summer. The Big Book of the Hamptons celebrates the mystique and romance of these iconic and extravagant neighborhoods, exploring the architecture and gardens of these secluded retreats, brought to life with amazing imagery in a deluxe volume.
