By Grace Knoop  When I woke up Monday morning, I was not happy. All I wanted to do was lay in bed and not move for the entire day. My alarm went off and I immediately snoozed it. Then the next alarm came. Snooze again. Because it was a holiday and we had no school, […]

By Emma Simonoff The Hamptons are a symbol of elegance — of old money getting away from the dirty muck of summer in Manhattan. When I picture the Hamptons, I imagine manicured families wearing all white to polite barbecues and getting up early to play tennis at the beach house before going to the club […]
