The Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual HarborFest celebration across the village from Long Wharf and Windmill Beach running up and down Bay Street, Main Street and everything in between. Team Whalers, for the men, and John K. Ott, for the women, won the coveted Whalers Cup trophies awarded every year to the winners of the whaleboat racing competition. Here’s a little snapshot of the weekend, seen through the eye of Express News Group photographer Michael Heller.
As a result of what was uncovered during the wharf project, which is now nearing completion, Heller has just published a new book, titled “A Short History of Sag Harbor’s Long Wharf.” In it, he takes a look back at the structure that has served as the centerpiece of the village for centuries.
Sag Harbor Village this week obtained a temporary restraining order, allowing it to enforce a stop-work order on the renovation of a house at 24 Rysam Street that village officials say resulted in the destruction of an historic building.
As Sag Harbor Village begins to reopen for business with the coronavirus receding in New York, Mayor Kathleen Mulcahy said this week, it was important to be vigilant about measures like maintaining social distancing and wearing masks.
