FEATURES
Beyond the Hamptons
BY VANESSA GRIGORIADIS
There's much to be said for that certain familiar string of beach towns that lies at the end of the L.I.E. -- but sometimes you want to go where nobody knows your name. So for this issue, we sought out eight undiscovered (okay, relatively undiscovered) idylls -- from newly reborn Asbury Park, New Jersey, to the Rockefeller-style elegance of Mount Desert Island, Maine. Herewith, our downtime dossier -- what's for sale or rent and for how much; who your neighbors will be and what they do on their days of rest.

Window of Hope
BY MERYL GORDON
Noche, the exuberantly tropical Latin-themed restaurant and nightclub that's opening next week, is the latest addition to the music scene in Times Square. But for David Emil, the lawyer and businessman who until September 11 ran Windows on the World, it's something more: a chance to reunite more than 50 Windows survivors and begin to rebuild his shattered company.

The Melody Lingers
BY GWENDA BLAIR
Jazz singer Susannah McCorkle seemed to pour all her passions into her work. "It always made me cry," her sister said. "It was the only time she ever spoke to us in a direct way." Indeed, since Susannah jumped from her sixteenth-floor apartment window just a year ago, her friends have found out how little they knew of her struggles with depression. Even as new fans discover her exquisite work, those closest to her wonder: If they had known more, could they have helped more?
