A Truly Gated Community

Independent Jewish Cemetery Association

Are you "iterate?" That is adept at formulating and conceptualizing? It’s something that comes in handy at gatherings where the lingua franca is the pithy throwaway which brings up the question of the afterlife. If you take route 114 into the town of Sag Harbor from East Hampton you will pass on your left the Independent Jewish Cemetery Association. The headstones are like the crowd at one of those Hamptons parties where everyone is trying to hide their desire to get attention--or not. Schwartz, Shapiro, Stein, Levy are all vying to be top man on the totem pole, even in death. The fact is, it's as expensive to buy or rent in the Hamptons as it is to die. In death as well as life the three most important things are: location, location, location.
