So my thoughts on the Hamptons now that my weekend is coming to a close.
I would never come here on my own accord – coming with someone who already has a plan or a trip is great (aka me mooching off my roommates work trip). I say this because the Hamptons is oddly exclusive and weird. Everything is far apart (except for in Montauk where Uber’s are $10 no matter where you go). Side note for a tangent Uber’s here are so fucking expensive. Literally it costs almost the same to go to a different town 20 minutes away and to uber back to the city wtf.
Anyways it’s very vanilla here if you catch my drift and it’s gets a little old. An issue I have with all northeastern places is the beaches are shit. Not to sound spoiled but once you’ve been to any beach south of the mason Dixon you can’t go back. The food however is bomb af, service is great (you get what you pay for) there’s not a ton of hotels and there all kind of old ish and not super nice, like if you paid the same amount for a hotel here as you would in the city you’d be in an executive suite. ALSO there are too many kids here.
Overall I give it a 4/10.
Also look at this awesome photo of my solo breakfast the other day.
Ok I really need to get better about posting. But 1 week ago I went to an exhibit I’m Williamsburg called dream Machine. I saw some of my friends excellent thirst traps on instagram and decided to join in the fun. Tickets are $40 each and this gives you a specific time slot, enthusiastic tour guide who’s sole purpose is to make sure you get as many photos/boomerangs as possible. Seriously these guys are like professional Instagram photogs. They art direct, they style and they give out free candy. I’m really into exhibits like this because they are 102092 times less crowded than normal ones and it gives you more than enough time to browse and pose for photos. The only thing I wish was different was more explanation of each room. Who designed it and what was their inspiration. Although I got some amazing thirst traps (see below) I also like to be educated too.
Here we have a mix of some mysterious mountain range in Europe (yea I don’t remember where this is), Grand Central Station, Morocco art, a whiskey bar in DC, Hawaii, ace hotel in manhattan, Amsterdam, Hawaii again, acme restaurant and bar and a random bookshelf in an art gallery in TriBeCa.
