Sag Harbor Village will celebrate the official opening of John Steinbeck Waterfront Park, named for the author of “The Grapes of Wrath” among other acclaimed works, at 11 a.m. on May 25, just in time for Memorial Day weekend. On this week’s podcast, reporter Stephen J. Kotz joins the editors to discuss how the 1.25-acre parcel, once host to derelict buildings, was preserved for $10.5 million and turned over to a public use. The episode also includes landscape architect Ed Hollander’s comments about designing the park from a recent Express Sessions.
