Reflecting on the most-read northforker content of 2020 it’s hard not to think about the pandemic.

Our web traffic this year shows us how much people relied on us for advice of places to go to safely navigate outdoor dining, takeout and wine tastings. We’re happy to have been able to direct people to so many local businesses on the North Fork.

It’s also obvious why two posts about where to go for a stroll cracked this year’s list.

We were desperate for fun, safe things to do and the North Fork is the ideal place for that.
