That was a really interesting article, thanks for sharing. My boyfriend grew up in the Hamptons, though most of the time he doesn't act snobbish every once in a while he'll drop a name out of blue air that makes you say "you were playing tennis with WHOSE neice?!"

The whole "urbanization" of the Hamptons reminds me of Richard Florida's hypothesis of economics which states that the wealthy follow the artists, and thus the cultural meccas move as the artists try to escape to the fringes of society, then the wealthy follow, and everyone follows the wealthy and so forth. Reminiscent of Paris' Monte Martre which once was a similar mecca and now is a tourist attraction filled with cheap portrait artists and cartoonists looking to make easy money off tourists following Hemmingway's and co.'s memories...
