First, stay away from Noman’s Land. If not for the strict government injunction against trespassing, then for the threat of obliteration by a five-hundred-pound bomb. After all, it’s not called Noman’s Land for nothing. Yet once upon a time this forbidden outpost was known as the “Isle of Romance,” boasting a bizarre and enigmatic human history replete with tales of Vikings, ghostly visitations, a furtive Nazi landing, and savage rumrunners.

Q&A with News Woman Carole Simpson

Starting at the height of the civil rights movement, Carole Simpson parlayed her natural curiosity, intellect, and persistence into a ground-breaking career in journalism that lasted some forty years.

Picturing Solitude

Photographer Tim Coy relishes the quiet moments he comes across during his nighttime wanderings and seaside walks on Martha’s Vineyard.

On the Ground at Noman’s Land

First, stay away from Noman’s Land. If not for the strict government injunction against trespassing, then for the threat of obliteration by a five-hundred-pound bomb. After all, it’s not called Noman’s Land for nothing. Yet once upon a time this forbidden outpost was known as the “Isle of Romance,” boasting a bizarre and enigmatic human history replete with tales of Vikings, ghostly visitations, a furtive Nazi landing, and savage rumrunners.

Understanding Distressed Properties

Short sales, foreclosures, REOs. For tough economic times, the real estate industry nationwide has developed a jargon all its own. And while there hasn’t been a lot of press about distressed properties on the Island, they do exist and may provide opportunities for patient, discerning buyers. Here’s a closer look at the ins and outs of “unconventional” houses for sale.

A distressed property is real estate that is under foreclosure or impending foreclosure because of insufficient loan payments by the owner/debtor. All forms of distressed properties exist on the Island.

From Movie House to Mini-Park

On the Money: How Financial Issues Differ On-Island

“Martha’s Vineyard is a special place.” This oft-repeated phrase may or may not be true generally, but when it comes to money, it’s false. Money behaves the same here as everywhere else, and so do people.

From the Editor

When I moved to the Vineyard five years ago this fall, I hadn’t lived here seasonally or even vacationed on-Island before. I basically came here cold. Now I realize there are some basic themes to living here (and many of the articles in this magazine correspond).
