Long Island’s most legendary singer/songwriter was spotted in Greenport today.

Heather Suter, a co-owner of hot sauce and cigar store Greenport Fire, said a Billy Joel music video was playing on a television inside the store when she noticed the real life Piano Man across the street along with his wife, Alexis Roderick, and the couple’s daughter Della Rose. The trio were enjoying a treat from nearby Sandpiper Ice Cream, she said.

He later popped into Suter’s store and commented that she had “great music” playing.

“He was awesome,” Suter said. “He was very gentlemanly and very sweet.” (more…)

A 124-unit condo complex is preparing to break ground in Cutchogue with the first units expected to be move-in ready by this time next year.

Harvest Pointe, which will occupy 46 acres near the intersection of School House Lane and Griffing Street, opened a nearby sales office earlier this month. On display there are artist renderings of the proposed units, layout plans and countertop samples for the 55-and-over community, previously known as Heritage at Cutchogue.

On any given morning, Martin Accardi could be found sitting in the Hudson Market in Wading River for about an hour. When the former owner, Tony Coates, said in passing that he was selling the place, a lightbulb went on in Accardi’s head.

“I was kind of caught up in a nine-to-five world, like a lot of people are, and it’s always been my dream to have a little shop,” he said.

The former Hudson Market primarily sold coffee and a few muffins, but Accardi wanted to transform it into something more extensive. (more…)
