We're thrilled with these nautical-themed bike racks beautifully executed by John Battle of John Battle Ironworks! Their permanent installation continues our mission of making sure we are working in keeping with Sag Harbor's historic past.
Many thanks to the community for their support of this project!

We have also produced a paper version of the Kids' Walking Tour that they can pick up at the Windmill or at other friendly stops on the various tours (as well as the Wharf Shop), and a Sag Harbor Cultural District Walking Tour and guide, a free brochure for visitors and residents. The map includes QR codes for smart phones, locations and hours, and descriptions of each participating institution.
Our first projects were in support of Traffic Calming in the Village of Sag Harbor, and the exciting Preservation of our Historic Waterfront. To this end, we are raising money to help these two great propositions, while working directly with Village officials to determine need and direction.
Traffic calming has long been a difficult issue in the village. We have been encouraged by specific proposals and referenda to slow down our too-fast traffic, especially after accidents in recent years. A small fund-raiser was held at Estia’s Little Kitchen in November 2013, and another at the end of March, 2014, that raised several thousand dollars that will go directly to working with project traffic calming experts on the possibility of installing bump-outs and other clever and aesthetic measures to intelligently slow down drivers. We are targeting areas identified by residents in a workshop in February 2013, and are focusing on Main and Jermain Streets.
