Few stories from 2014 found their way into The Suffolk Times more often than the “dustup on the waterfront.” On the street, at Town Hall and in the letters section of this paper, New Suffolk residents regularly traded barbs with neighbors and business owners over plans for development along the bay.

The wooden posts erected Sunday along New Suffolk Waterfront's property cuts off some land on which visitors to the hamlet's business district normally park to shop or eat. Now, if cars were to park in rows alongside one another, they'd be encroaching on First Street. (Credit: Cyndi Murray)

Weeks after the New Suffolk Waterfront Fund’s controversial plan to operate a commercial restaurant on its First Street property was approved by the Southold Town Planning Board, the nonprofit learned this week it will have to submit a revised site plan.

North Fork, Artist Rob White

Today was the first day of a truly North Fork art exhibit, held at the old Galley Ho restaurant on the New Suffolk waterfront.

The show, called NF x NF, premiered for what was described by curator and once-Suffolk Times editorial cartoonist, Rob White, as a “good,  steady crowd,” resulting in the sale of five of the exhibit’s 61 total artworks.

The show’s theme represents a mathematical equation: North fork artists multiplied by North Fork-inspired art works. Mr. White describes the place he calls home, the North Fork as, “a cat that’s been let out of the bag,” a place with a loveliness that some wish could have been kept secret.

“The North Fork, New Suffolk especially, is the kind of place we don’t want to tell anyone about because we like it so much ,” he said. “This show extols its virtues without actually giving it away.”

The show will be on view through Sept. 16.
