Tumbleweed Tuesday in the Hamptons

by Carrie Doyle

They call it Tumbleweed Tuesday in the Hamptons. The day after Labor Day, when all of the summer people finally leave town and the locals can have the place to themselves. Streets stretching from Montauk to Southampton empty out and traffic thins. The only activity on the sandy beaches is the buzzing of the bees that usher in September and escort the vacationers back to their cities. Dogs are finally allowed back on the beach during the day.
