A little bit of ‘old’ with the ‘new’

Simple elegance for the holidays on Main Street


With the Roosevelts’ and robber barons’ country homes as mainstays in the histories of our communities, the “old money” or “quiet luxury” aesthetic from TikTok is a bit late to the party for residents of Oakdale, Sayville, Bayport, and Blue Point, who have been sporting boating loafers (no socks) in the winter for generations.

For this year’s Holiday Shopper, The Suffolk County News scoured Main Street for some, ironically, new staples of that Old Dominion world for 2023.
