2016-17. As we begin moving onto the 2017 season I am reminded of part of our mission. That being the mentoring of our younger generation that is now discovering the Pines. The past has allowed the now to live, love, and celebrate in this land of make believe we call Fire Island. Reality shows can show a one-sided view of a nonstop party atmosphere. However, the true reality is a community filled with people, places and events that have shaped gay history. #ownyourhistory#

1976. In our researching we get to meet many people. People who have their own cherished memories about this magical place. We use this platform to honor their memories if the let us. A young Gene Gordon worked at the Blue Whale as a waiter during the day, but came alive on screen as Will Seagers as he sometimes shot films on a lunch break. He shared his story here:

2017. Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style someday
Old dream maker, you heartbreaker
Wherever your goin' , your goin
' your way
Two drifters, off to see the world
Theres such a lot of world to see
Were after the same rainbow's end, waiting round the bend
My huckleberry friend , Moon river and me.... #fireislandpinesnewyork #fireislandpinesrealestate #fi #fip #fireislandfun #fireisland #fireislandferry #fireislandbound #fireislandandbeyond #fireislandpineshistoricalpreservationsociety #fireislandpinesharbor #pinesparty #pinesartist #pinesliquorshop #fireislandnationalseashore #moonriver #ownyourhistory #instagay #gayboys #

1971. Art has always been part of Pines history as we are a community filled with creative artists of every kind. These photos represent a simpler era where art and community flourished together in the larger of the photo’s is the work of favorite artist Ferron Bell.

2017. As we celebrate the Art Show here in the Pines I am reminded that Art comes in many forms.
Vito Fun has been a Fire Island staple for the last 12 years. His tea at Pavilion has become a welcome tradition, so much so it was renamed ‘Fun Tea’ in 2012. Vito recently put out a music video he shot on Fire Island with a little help from a bunch of Fire Islanders. We think it is pretty good, you should check it out! #LessTalkMoreArt
Less Talk, More Art is the latest video creation from the mind of Vito Fun.
The video was shot in the Fire Island Pines, where Vito is a resident DJ. ‘Fire Island is the first place I felt like I could be 100% myself without having to look over my shoulder, so we wrote the chorus about feeling free and finding a home away from home.’ The song is anthemic as it beckons you stop talking and start making - Less Talk, More Art.
‘Art is life and life is art. Your profession is your art, from an investment banker to a musician. You must approach them in the same way by doing it harder, better, faster and stronger than your competition.’
The song came from the minds of Vito Fun and KOIL, who have been grinding out music together for the last 5 years. Together they have produced music for Nina Sky, Bob The Drag Queen, Alaska Thunderfuck, Ricky Rebel, KENO, Peppermint, Ce’Cile, Maluca, Nicky Da B, and many more. KOIL, formerly the head vocal engineer for Timbaland and Diddy, is currently living in LA and producing hit songs with big people.

2017. No matter where you are in Cherry Grove there is one building that stands above the rest. Filled with history and some naked boys the Belvedere has a view of the world all its own…

1981. Fashion has always played a role in Pines History. The Fashion Shows held at the Botel pool and benefitting the Pines Conservation Society were high end affairs with top designers and models like Pat Cleveland seen here. It is time for fashion to come back to the Pines…
