Einstein on the North Fork- Hamptons Mobile Detailing North Fork Tour
Albert Einstein spent his summers on the North Fork.
_____
 
Albert Einstein was a frequent visitor to the North Fork, summering there from 1937-1939 in a house located on West Cove Road (originally known as Old Cove Road) on Nassau Point in Peconic. Despite the fact that he couldn't swim and had to be rescued from an occasional misstep into the water, one of Einsten's favorite seaside pastimes was sailing on his fifteen foot boat, "Tinef" (Yiddish for "junk").
 
It was during this time that Einstein befriended David Rothman, the owner of the still-existing Rothman's Department Store in Southold. The two men formed a fast friendship, based on philosophical discussions and violin duets, after a chance meeting in the store when Einstein wandered in, looking to purchase sandals.
 
It was also during his time on the North Fork that Einstein composed an infamous letter to Franklin D. Roosevelt, which became the catalyst to the creation of the Manhattan project, leading to the production of the first Atomic weapon ever to be used in a military conflict.
