Welcome to the first edition of the Global Jet-Setter Examiner–a foray into the world of movers, shakers, movie stars and moguls.
It is only fitting that we open with a visit to the celebrity-driven playground of The Hamptons–an area of prime properties located in New York’s Suffolk County, at the east end of Long Island–where your Global Jet-Setter Examiner spent many summers of her youth and still goes to visit relatives in Montauk.
East Hampton is the bomb with its billionaires, celebrities and a few millionaires making up most of the population during the summer months (fleeing to the South of France or other chic resorts the rest of the year).
Celebrity spotting is a major sport of visitors who ofen eye famous folk such as Jerry Seinfeld, Steven Spielberg, Russell Simmons, Carmelo Anthony, Whitney Port, Lance Bass, Selita Ebanks and Emmy Ross, Rihanna, Bethenny Frankel , Gerard Butler, Annalynne McCord, Ashley Greene and Zac Efron, Kardashians, Jon Bon Jovi, Chace Crawford and Michelle Trachtenberg, T Jay-Z, Beyonce, Jeremy Piven and Kelly Ripa and of course others.
