  Hustle and Bustle

Nantucket is an extraordinary place for many reasons, but especially because of the forward thinking of the people. To name a few examples, among many, think about these - the Nantucket Conservation Foundation started in 1963 and the first piece of land it acquired was an 0.9 acre parcel in Brant Point - "Bird Sanctuary" - tap root started. Now, NCF owns and manages over 9,000 acres. The Nantucket Land Bank is the first of its kind and is now used as a model across the country. The "Acceptance of Nantucket Islands Land Bank Legislation" was adopted at Special Town Meeting, January 17, 1984 by a show of hands - Yes, 293, No, 12. Wow... The Land Bank has since acquired over 2,200 acres for the use and enjoyment for the general public. In 1975, all of Nantucket, Tuckernuck and Muskeget became part of the Nantucket Historic District. This "District" is governed by the Historic District Commission to maintain architectural integrity on Nantucket Islands. Feels good to know you're not going to have a suplex developed next to you. What's a suplex, anyways? Sounds suspect.

To think we can ride a bike 10 minutes from a world class downtown - restaurants, shopping, social, etc. - and all of a sudden be in a swath of conservation land where you don't see another human soul is jaw-dropping.

Market's still firing. $491mm closed YTD compared to $433mm at this time last year, which was a $1bn year.

  The Nantucket Conservation Foundation

What a beautiful world we live in on ACK. We have the best weather on the East Coast, the best beaches and the most beautiful people. While JPFCO makes it happen daily there is a foundation that truly helps to make it happen as well; The Conservation Foundation. We at JPFCO make it happen by being firm supporters of the Conservation Commission. When on The Island look around and feel the serenity of the open space surrounding you. Without this wonderful foundation that makes it happen the natural charm and beauty of the Island would be forever lost. This is a great example of how we make it happen on the wonderful world of Nantucket. Come by and say hi at 19 Centre as we will let you know that is why it is ACK all the way!!!

  The Nantucket Way

It's the height of the season; energy is inflated, temps are high, traffic is intense and everyone on Nantucket is on their way somewhere! It's the perfect time for a gentle reminder: SLOW DOWN everybody! Most of you are on vacation! Drivers, put those phones away, slow down and be more cautious! Pedestrians be more present, put those phones down and walk the streets with awareness. Lets all make an effort to treat each other with kindness, it's the Nantucket way!

Avoiding unnecessary accidents is the goal and having a safe and fun time on Nantucket is the result! In the event of unexpected injury, a great resource for life's unexpected bumps and bruises is Anderson's Walk In Clinic. Open Mon-Fri 8am-5pm & Sat & Sun 8am-12 noon. Anderson Building at Nantucket Cottage Hospital 57 Prospect Street, Nantucket, MA 02554 (508) 825-1066

74A Madaket Road $4,290,000

Remarkable newly completed spacious house, cottage and pool set on two sweeping pastoral acres less than a mile from Main Street. Beautifully executed construction with choice materials, exquisite craftsmanship, and intensive thought put into the many house details. There are delightful finishes, and a wonderful floor plan that is designed to have spacious, airy, and light filled rooms that seamlessly transition to outdoor spaces. Exterior living includes a large covered back deck, that views a lovely heated, Pebble-Tec pool surrounded by a spacious bluestone patio and lush rolling yard. The stone work is amazing! New construction and easy access to town and multiple beaches, this one is not to be missed!

  Fud Hounds in Paradise

I've heaped the accolades on Nantucket for some time now. I've covered a myriad of subjects, but believe i've dealt with the restaurant scene on Nantucket in a most perfunctory manner. As far as my favorite islands go, which are Nantucket, Boca Grande, Antigua and Bermuda, Nantucket is the 'hands down' winner; a gourmand's paradise, if you will. When I was a kid growing up on Nantucket, there was absolutely nothing. Nada. Unless you count the J.C. House and the Mad Hatter, either one of which I would have strongly recommended that your Last Will and Testament were in 'good' order. In other words many entered but few departed on their feet. I'd say that Nantucket has a minimum of 30 'good' restaurants and that may be low. There are two or three on Antigua, three or four on Bermuda and as for Boca Grande, that comes up with a big Sandy Koufaxian ZERO. That's correct, the old white wash, the Big Goose Egg. When we first bought our house on Boca Grande, we inherited a cook who lived on the property, and everybody said how lucky we were - yeah, lucky to be alive. She just couldn't understand why we went out so much, which in and of itself, was no day at the beach. Try as I might, I just couldn't locate Henri Soule.

Have a Happy summer and hoist a cup to celebrate great Nantucket OiNKING.
