The offspring of coyote families that colonized the Bronx a couple of decades ago have now made their way into Nassau County, where two breeding pairs have been identified in the past couple of years, one in a county park and the other on an estate on the celebrated Gold Coast. Sightings and photo evidence have recorded a coyote roaming the South Fork since 2013 — and last year for the first time, a single photo by a local hunter captured two coyotes together here.
Back in January 2017, art dealer and Sag Harbor resident Richard J. Demato opened the doors of his brand new RJD Gallery on Bridgehampton’s Main Street. The space was christened just a month after a devastating fire destroyed his previous gallery in the Sag Harbor Cinema building, along with millions of dollars in artwork. Now, exactly four years later, Demato has relocated again, this time to the small town of Romeo, Michigan, where he is set to soon open his newest gallery space.
