A True Picture of the Hamptons Dec 14, 2004
Kelly Lilloren-Bensimon truly has accomplished what she set out to do; to capture and express to others the true spirit of the hamptons. Whith her myriad of photographs and well written commentary she expresses the Hamptons in a way few others she. She truly melds the old fishing community with the new Platinum community. I feel though that her last line epxresses her book and the spirit of the Hamptons best. "The hamptons is a place where are drivign home and the sunset is so breathtakingly beautiful you have to pull over and watch for a while."
