Meet Amity – Founder of The Amity Agency | Hamptons Moms

How long have you been residing in the Hamptons?
9 1/2 years

Are you year round?
Yes, since 2009

What’s your favorite thing about being in the Hamptons?
That it is super safe and like lala land for my kids

What’s your favorite month to be out east?

Tell me a little more about what you do for a living and how that came about?
I have been a headhunter for 15 years. I first worked for a staffing company in the city for 5 1/2 years, and when I moved out east there weren’t any business-focused recruiters in the Hamptons. So I opened my own little company and recruit everything locally from Bookkeepers to Architects, Store Managers to Interior Designers, Administrative Assistants to Project Managers – you name it!

What do you want someone from another country to know about the Hamptons that nobody other than a local could tell them?
Go to Sunset Beach on Shelter Island and you’ll find plenty of other foreigners….and love it!

Best place to eat in all of the Hamptons in your opinion?
Sant Ambroeus

Most hyped location to eat or go that you can’t believe tourists fall for?
I don’t know, I’m probably a sucker for whatever it is myself!

Favorite beach for families?
Long Beach in Sag Harbor because you don’t have to worry about big waves and the parking spots are so close to the beach.

Best restaurant for families with a few children in town?
Townline BBQ

Most charming month in the Hamptons?
April is beautiful with the tulips, daffodils, cherry trees, etc. and the anticipation of summer.

Best place for ice cream in the Hamptons?
Carvel doesn’t suck.

Best date spot in the Hamptons for when you have a babysitter?
Patio at 1770 House

What else do you want people to know about the Hamptons?
Please walk, carpool, bike, or take a bus or train around. The traffic is insane – don’t make it worse! =)
