LongHouse Reserve Gardens, East Hampton
There are a variety of things to do on the Eastern end of Long Island yet I never seem to do them. Good news is my friend bought a group of tickets for us to all go on a tour of the LongHouse Reserve Gardens. She has gone on a few trips with the man who is the Executive Director of the organization.
The story of how the gardens began is one that people say to themselves, wow I wish I had done that. Around 1970, Jack Lenor Larsen, purchased 20 acres of land that is now called the LongHouse Reserve Gardens. Over time he created a non-profit organization around the grounds and created these awesome gardens.
I found the house depressing and cold. Filled with tons of art but not a place I can imagine living in. Kind of a letdown. If you can definitely go see the gardens. They are magnificent. Pass on the house.
