Of all the North Fork’s scenic and peaceful neighborhoods, there’s only one where the street names harken back to an 19th-century epic poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: Laughing Water in Southold.

A small, private community along Corey Creek, Laughing Water was once the domain of Cedric Wickham, a former owner of Mattituck Airport and fan of Native American lore.  (more…)

Jennifer Place has always felt at home in Southold.

It’s where she ran her first triathlon, back in 2007.  It’s also long been where her parents have lived. And for the first time this year, the new Southold resident can also say it’s her hometown.

So even after winning the Mighty North Fork Triathlon at Cedar Beach four other times since 2007, the 40-year-old felt a little added pressure Sunday. That didn’t stop her from finishing in her usual first place spot among female athletes.  (more…)
