this strip of paradise is brimming with animation and striking views. The Hampton’s party-going cousin holds a historic reputation for a place to see and a place to be seen. It was a place where good times could be found, particularly for the sexually liberated young man, and still is to this today. The island was notorious for hosting near-naked black tie galas and impromptu fashion shows by Diane von Furstenberg (formerly Princess Diane of Fürstenberg is a Belgian-American fashion designer best known for her iconic wrap dress). Even Calvin Klein termed this oasis home and Truman Capote wrote, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” from one its lovely beach houses. The island’s exploits have soon passed into legend, however the stunning architecture remains, as well as the party fever.
