3. Georgica Beach
Clifford Ross, 58, Artist-Photographer
“The beaches of the East End of Long Island from Amagansett to Bridgehampton have been in my life since I was 5 or 6 years old. Part of what runs through my own blood is accumulated moisture and light from those beaches. Over the past 40 years, my affections have been tethered to Georgica Beach. There’s a place called the gut, a little strip that separates the Atlantic from Georgica Pond. A couple times a year, there’s a major storm, and the ocean breaks into the pond. It’s a very dramatic thing. I think Georgica is the Cary Grant of beaches. It’s so beautiful and elegant, but put him in a bad-guy role and watch out.”
