‘The Big Book of the Hamptons’ Relives the Wonder of New York’s Greatest Gem

Written by Michael Shnayerson, The Big Book of the Hamptons offers an exquisite look back on some of the most romantic and legendary neighborhoods in American history: the Hamptons. By exploring the architecture, gardens, sprawling mansions and spectacular estates from America’s most beloved Gilded Age that celebrate the likes of Fitzgerald, Vonnegut, Pollock and Warhol alike, Shnayerson brings the modern reader inside life along the American Rivera.

Shanayerson’s introduction calls upon the reader for preservation of the idyllic collection of seaside villages just one hundred miles outside of Manhattan but one inside, the tome pairs beautiful anecdotes from Long Island regulars alongside large-format photographs of the distinctive elements Hamptonites have come to know, love and look forward to: Architecture, the landscape and man’s impact on the Hamptons culture throughout the decades.

It’s on sale and available now through Assouline for $75.
