Description

Dan Rattiner is best known for creating Dan's Papers , the largest circulating newspaper in the Hamptons. Founded in Montauk in 1960 as the first free newspaper in America, today it is a quirky, irreverent and informative publication, sometimes running 300 pages a week, in which Rattiner usually writes between three and five articles. He is often called the Unofficial Mayor of the Hamptons.

Born in NYC, Rattiner moved to Long Island in 1956 when his father bought a local drugstore. He started Dan's Papersas a summer newspaper between his junior and senior year at the University of Rochester. Also a cartoonist, he has sold his work to Esquire, MacLeans, Redbook, and the Saturday Review of Literature.For several years in the 1990s, he broadcast Dan's Hampton Report on WQXR, the radio station of The New York Times.
