John Howard Payne, June 9, 1791, NYC | April 10, 1852, Tunis, Tunisia.

John Howard Payne’s song, Home, Sweet Home! was first sung in Covent Garden, London, in 1823, as part of his operetta (w/composer Sir Henry Rowley Bishop), “Clari, the Maid of Milan.” Since John Howard Payne had visited East Hampton as a child, and also because he had numerous relatives in East Hampton, many have attributed the inspiration for the song to the eighteenth century salt-box situated on the village green in the village of East Hampton. 

No more from that cottage again will I roam,
Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home.

Bronze Sculpture: John Howard Payne by Henry Baerer. Given by the Faust Club to the City of Brooklyn, New York, and erected in Prospect Park, September, 1873. Loaned to the Village of East Hampton by the City of New York Parks & Recreation, November, 2001.

Albert Einstein, Einstein Square, Southold. Sculpture by Marco Di Luca

This bust commemorates Einstein Square and the unique friendship of Albert Einstein and David Rothman. It was in this store at this house where they met in July 1939. The two became friends and spent time together discussing topics of the day and playing chamber music. It was on August 2nd 1939 that the famous letter was sent by Albert Einstein to Franklin D. Roosevelt and mailed from Southold. It is believed that this letter led to the development of the Atomic Bomb. Albert Einstein later wrote letters to David Rothman professing that his summer in Southold 1939 was “the happiest summer ever.”
