Nantucket: The Old and The New

Here’s an entertaining and informative article from the New York Times about Old Money and New Money on Nantucket.

Though it was first published in 2005, the Old Money values and attitudes expressed by some of those interviewed in the article remain the same: don’t talk about your wealth, don’t build ostentatious houses, don’t show off.

It’s also interesting that the Old Money crowd at Nantucket can leave work at the office. The New Money folks want to be networking all the time, even on vacation. That gets fatiguing quickly for those of us who simply want to experience socializing without an agenda.

Enjoy.
