Universal Design, the design of products and environments suitable for everyone, from children to the elderly, is a term increasingly heard on the East End, where retirees continue to swell the population.

Customers come from near and far and at this point the general manager of London Jewelers in East Hampton can often spot them the minute they walk in. They are almost always men, and when they look at the cases of glittering jewelry and watches and rings, they suddenly seem unsure they’re in the right place. Then, with a quick glance, they see “Humidor” in big letters on a glass door to the right and shelves of cigars inside a climate-controlled, walk-in room.

It has taken more than 10 months, but Sag Harbor has a pizza parlor again. Sag Pizza opened in the Main Street space formerly occupied by the village's beloved Conca D'Oro earlier today.

The East End real estate market is on divergent paths, according to second-quarter reports from many of the major real estate agencies, as sales of luxury homes, defined as those priced at $5 million and up, were robust, while those of lower-priced ones lagged behind.

Andrea Anthony is a co-owner and hands-on manager of the Lobster Roll, one of the most iconic eateries on Long Island. But neither the restaurant’s 53-year tradition nor acclaim for the food protects her and her partners from having the same staffing problems that neighboring businesses continue to have, even at this late date in the season.
