Construction at The Menhaden in Greenport began Monday, nearly two years after the new hotel was first proposed for the corner of Front and Third streets.

The three-story building, which overlooks Mitchell Park, will include 16 hotel rooms, a 49-seat restaurant and retail space, said Kristen Pennessi of Front & Third LLC, the company behind the proposal.

The revitalization of Greenport’s Stirling Square will be virtually complete with the anticipated opening of American Beech hotel reception and boutique this weekend.

Proprietor Brent Pelton hopes the new 500-square-foot storefront will serve as an inviting spot, enlivening the entrance to the Stirling Square complex which also contains 1943 Pizza Bar, the Italian specialty store Basso, design studio Open Space as well as Pelton’s New American restaurant, also called American Beech.

“It’s really important to pull life toward the front of the square,” Pelton said in a recent interview inside the new space. “I’m super proud and I’m super excited.” (more…)

Tired of spending your summers in Red Hook or Massapequa or wherever you call home? We recommend renting a quaint cottage or waterfront aerie, as whatever you fancy is sure to be found among the farms and vineyards and along the rugged coastline of Long Island’s charmingly anti-chic North Fork. Who knows? After spending a week, month or summer out here, you might just switch from being a renter to a buyer. (more…)

The buildings, along with cottages built at Heckscher State Park in East Islip, are the first indoor accommodations offered by Long Island state parks. Wildwood currently only offers sites for tents and trailers. (more…)
