The Hamptons By Derek Anderson, Joel Anderson, 2023
- The Hamptons
The Hamptons, on eastern Long Island's South Fork, is a string of seaside communities known as a summer destination for affluent New York City residents. It’s marked by long stretches of beach and an interior of farmland, towns and villages with 18th-century shingle buildings and estates hidden behind tall boxwood hedges. Montauk Point Lighthouse resides at the very eastern point of Long Island, New York. This is also the most eastern point of New York State. The lighthouse was first constructed in 1796, making it a historic site like no other. Montauk Point also served as a major fortification during World War I and World War II. To celebrate the history of this region, Anderson Design Group fashioned an American Travel poster of the lighthouse in an early-20th century style. Designed by hand, this vintage travel poster captures some of the history and nostalgia that Montauk Point is so well known for. A lovely wall decoration for any New Yorker or lighthouse aficionado, this illustration makes for the perfect conversation piece.
