New shops revitalize Southold Town

When you see articles in the press lately about the North Fork, you read about the abundant wineries of Cutchogue and the much-extolled beauty of Greenport town, but rarely does Southold town come up.

Then I had the brilliant idea (though I say it myself) to make it a competition for my former guests. I received far more entries than I expected and they were all so good! I also learned a lot about what it is that makes Shorecrest so special to each […]
