Montauk

Montauk
"Montauk - The End,'' proclaims the bumper sticker, a sentiment that captures the delight people find in the ocean-kissed shores and rolling green hills of Long Island's most way-out community. Three-hundred-eighty-four years after Dutch explorer Adrian Block landed there, Montauk as it was survives more or less intact. Though it is a magnet for tourism and a world-class fishing mecca, better than half its 10,000 acres remain as public lands.
