The private Bridgehampton garden of Stanley and Susan Reifer will be open to the public on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. as part of the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days program.
“The Reifer garden was designed by Jian Guo Xu, a noted Chinese artist, who has created a complex of graceful gardens on five acres that incorporate Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism. Employing Chinese craftsmen, he has constructed numerous pavilions, bridges, and water features interconnected by winding paths and illuminating viewing points,” the conservancy program said.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration honored Richard G. Hendrickson, a volunteer United States Cooperative weather observer since 1930, for his longstanding service on Sunday.
Three Mile Harbor in East Hampton will be temporarily closed to shellfishing from sunrise on Saturday through Wednesday, in anticipation of the annual fireworks show on Saturday, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation announced on Thursday.
