Life On The Gold Coast

Our luxury magazines take center stage on the North Shore

Long Island is known for many things: beautiful beaches, fresh seafood, its close proximity to Manhattan, and of course, the Gold Coast. Gatsby-era homes dot the North Shore of Long Island, where Anton Media Group focuses it’s four luxury magazines, nestled in the towns of Roslyn, Manhasset, Port Washington and Great Neck.

This year in the Roslyn News Magazine, editor Joe Scotchie reined in history by telling the stories of the horse statues of the Mackay Estate, which have become a symbol of Roslyn’s past, present and future. We also visited The Roslyn Hotel for a luxurious staycation, honed our artistic skills with Roslyn Village Gallery owner Marsha Tarlow and interviewed the chef of the oldest restaurant in town, The Jolly Fisherman.

Celebrity ESPN announcer Adam Schefter, a Gold Coast native, shared his love of sports as Joe Scotchie sat court side, giving a history lesson about Roslyn’s basketball program. The Junior League discussed the many ways they transform communities through charitable efforts and a local architect details how Roslyn itself has changed from the traditional home to the contemporary estate.

In the Manhasset Press Magazine, we chose to highlight the beautiful stained glass windows of the Church of Saint Mary and the school’s powerful presence in the community. Tiffany & Co. celebrated 180 years as spring style was in fashion at Hirshleifers. The brand new Publicans was featured in an impressive array of dining options and for dessert, Buttercooky Bakery satisfies everyone’s sweet tooth with a delicious assortment of cookies, pies, cakes and baked goods.

Lending a helping hand, Ann Gray Graf’s acting classes help kids make the leap from the stage to the screen while Manhasset’s coaches of the year (Danielle Gallagher and Chuck Collyer) received prestigious awards for their efforts on and off the field. And let’s not forget out furry friends. Rescue Paw Foundation teamed up with London Jewelers for a unique way to show support for pets.

Port Washington News Magazine explored all this seafaring town has to offer, starting with a yacht tour of Manhasset Bay through Long Island Boat Rental. Sands Point Shop is great for shopping, but they also specialize in beautiful clock restoration, especially grandfather clocks. And did you know that media giants Condé Montrose Nast and William Randolph Hearst Sr. both left their marks on Sands Point?

We also congratulated The Helen Keller National Center celebrated 50 years while the historic Guggenheim mansion at Falaise has been around for decades as one of Sands Point’s architectural gems. Sure, Port has plenty of waterside dining options, but we wanted to take you to Main Street for some delicious spots. We also thought it was a good idea to send residents into the city, where Scott Conant talks about the opening of his new Italian Restaurant, Fusco. We also explored Main Street for where to shop for antiques and vintage treasures.

Great Neck Record Magazine chatted with one-time resident Helen Slater, better known as Supergirl, on how the role changed her life. Volunteering is at the forefront of two Great Neck fire departments, the same as it is for Dr. Andrew Jacono, a board certified plastic surgeon who takes his pro bono practices around the world to help children in need. The Great Neck Rotary Club updated us on their list of good deeds and we also explored the dozens of new eateries coming to the area. If you find yourself in Manhattan again, check our Donatella Arpaia’s new pizza restaurants, as she shared with us her Italian roots an why she loves Italy so much.

We love spending time on the North Shore, where there is so much history and beauty that can’t wait to be explored.
