Munn Point is named for Orson D. Munn, a Southampton Village trustee from 1967 to 1985. The boardwalk includes benches
A Southampton Village or Southampton Town beach parking permit is required to leave a car at the Munn Point parking spaces between the Friday before Memorial Day and the middle of September. The rest of the year, it's free.
The boardwalk is wheelchair accessible.
Stay tuned for #96 next week, same time same place. And if you missed #98.
