"Meet Me on Main Street" | Panel Discussion

Moderated by Bryan Boyhan
As part of "Every Village Has A Story"

Topic: Main Street Businesses — “Meet Me on Main Street”

The lifeblood of Sag Harbor is its Main Street business district and over the years, that district has evolved to reflect the needs and interests of the community. While some businesses remain in operation for generations, others close shop when times, temperament or the needs of customers and property owners shift. This panel will feature a discussion with long-time business owners who look back at the evolution of Sag Harbor’s businesses and the customers they serve.

Blue Collar Sag Harbor

In a series of three Sunday panel discussions this summer, the Whaling Museum will explore various aspects of Sag Harbor’s blue collar heritage. Each panel will reflect on the history and evolution of Sag Harbor through one of three lenses — Industry, Main Street Business, and Community — exploring how together and individually, these three facets of village life have contributed to the growth and development of Sag Harbor as we see it today.

This event is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor M. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and is administered by The Huntington Arts Council Inc.
