🌱 Southampton Daily: Suitcase For Ukraine + East Hampton Pride Parade

Hello, neighbors! It’s me, Diane Witek, your host of the Daily. Here are all the most important things to know about what’s happening locally.

First, today’s weather:

A morning shower; cloudy. High: 70, low: 57.

Here are the top stories in Southampton today:

  1. Do you have a suitcase that you can donate to Temple Adas Israel in Sag Harbor? The suitcases will be used to bring supplies to Ukraine. Once the supplies are distributed, “the empty suitcases will be used by evacuees to carry whatever they can from their homes,” the post said. The suitcases will be collected through June 5 at two locations in Sag Harbor. For information on suitcase drop-off, contact Rivalyn Zweig at (Southampton Patch)
  2. It seems everything is going up in price, that is, except Hamptons rentals. Landlords are finding it impossible to charge the same rates they did in recent summers. Since international travel has opened up, there is a lot of inventory so renters are holding out for last-minute discounts. (New York Post )
  3. Wedding planners on the East End this summer say that couples are planning extravagant weddings; “it’s go big or go home.” According to a top Hamptons wedding planner, “couples are now spending 40 percent more per guest than they did before the pandemic.” And, of course, no wedding Out East is complete without one amenity, she says: “a Kardashian-endorsed, skin-smoothing MirMir photo booth.” (New York Post )
  4. On Saturday, the East Hampton Pride Parade begins at 11 a.m. near Pond View Lane and Guild Hall. The website carved out the itinerary, “at noon, participants will march east on Main Street and continue to Herrick Park via Newton Lane, Railroad Avenue, and Lumber Lane.” The park will be hopping until 3 p.m. with celebration and music from deejay Karin Ward. (East Hampton Star)
  5. Fauna opened at the end of May in Westhampton Beach. A steakhouse in the same town, with the same owners as Flora (a Newsday top 100 restaurant), Newsday reports. Fauna is run by chef Aaron Mitchell-Patrick and his wife, Kathleen Matos, who is the general manager. (Subscription: Newsday)

Are you a Southampton resident looking for an investment alternative to the stock market?

Bloomberg recently asked experts where they’d invest $100,000 right now, and many of them had the same answer: fine art.

Thinking you can’t afford a Picasso? Well in 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, which allowed for the securitization of artwork. A company called built the largest platform for buying and selling art securities. In the past, you could only buy shares of companies like Apple, but with this investing app, you can unlock this powerful investment.

Meaning, you can invest in shares of million-dollar artwork. And in uncertain times, it turns out, fine art may be a wise investment. Here’s why:

  • Low correlation to stocks according to Citi
  • Contemporary art historically returns 23.2% when inflation is >3%
  • Contemporary art prices outpaced the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)
