If Heaven could ever truly exist on earth, then I am absolutely convinced it is located at Orient Point. That slim wisp of quiet, fertile land, dotted with charming historic homes and cradled in unapologetic blue on all sides holds a special place in my heart.
A summertime stop into town (which consists of a post office and a couple of shops) absolutely warrants a trip to the Four and Twenty Blackbirds Pie Shop, a seasonal pop-up of the famed Brooklyn one. They serve Stumptown alongside the best pie you will ever find, anywhere.
We enjoyed the Bitter Chocolate Pecan at Whole Foods during the holidays and so decided to something different this time: the Salted Honey pie. Four words only, friends: “be still my heart”, followed by an exhortation: “You must go!”
But if you do go, blend in softly and slowly to this sweet little town, which has been largely unmarred by the hustle and bustle that defines summertime on Long Island. Allow this place to breathe as it is, and you too will breathe and open your eyes to still more than a slice of devastating perfection.
