  •    Crossroads Music, the shop at Amagansett Square offering instrument sales and repairs as well as lessons, has long been a nexus for the South Fork’s thriving community of musicians and singers.

  •    Williamsburg, the Brooklyn neighborhood that exploded in popularity in the late 1990s, has come a long way — literally.
