The Watermill Center

The Watermill Center

If you pay a visit to the Hamptons this Fall call ahead and ask about visiting The Watermill Center. Robert Wilson’s world is one we all should spend time in.

There’s a recently renovated outdoor rooftop garden and an extraordinary collection of chairs (he has one of the world’s largest) that he’s amassed.
