Albert Einstein was taught to sail on Little Peconic Bay by two local brothers and Bob Fisher, who had a lot of patience getting him to become a successful yachtsman. While in Cutchogue on August 2, 1939, pipe-smoking Einstein was visited by fellow Jewish physicists from Hungary Leó Szilárd and Edward Teller, dictated the famous Letter to President Roosevelt, alerting him to the new developments in nuclear physics and hinting that the Germans might be working on an atomic bomb, urging him to launch his own program.

The letter is credited with setting in motion the Manhattan Project, the US government effort that built the first atomic bomb. When Szilárd first explained the concept of a nuclear chain reaction to him, Einstein gave the famous reply, "Daran habe ich gar nicht gedacht!". Mattituck-Cutchogue Union Free School District

Hollywood (Down on Your Luck)

"Hollywood" is a song by the Irish rock band Thin Lizzy, written by guitarist Scott Gorham and bassist/vocalist Phil Lynott, released as a single in 1982. It was the only single to be released from their 1981 album Renegade; the opening track on Side 2 of Renegade, "Hollywood" was released as a single on 6 March 1982, over three months after the album, released the previous November. Vertigo Records refused to finance a promotional video for the song, which contributed to a poor chart placing compared to past singles. In the UK, "Hollywood" reached no. 53, which apart from the previous single, "Trouble Boys", which reached no. 53, was the lowest chart placing for a Thin Lizzy single in the UK since "Wild One" failed to chart in 1975. In Ireland, the single did not chart at all, again the worst performance since the mid-1970s, it did, reach no. 24 on the US Mainstream Rock chart. "Hollywood" was released in various territories, all with the same picture sleeve or with a plain record company sleeve.

In the UK a 7" picture disc was released, in a plain plastic sleeve. The first 30,000 singles were picture discs and the remainder were black vinyl. In the Netherlands, the usual b-side "The Pressure Will Blow" was replaced with another track from Renegade, "Mexican Blood". In Canada, the b-side of the single was "Girls", written by Lynott, former Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian Robertson and ex-Rainbow bassist Jimmy Bain. "Girls" was not a Thin Lizzy recording, having appeared on Lynott's solo album Solo in Soho. The poor chart showing of the single was despite exposure on primetime television in the UK, when the band performed the single as guests on BBC One's Saturday evening show Jim'll Fix It, on 9 January 1982; the show made arrangements for children to have their wishes granted but on this occasion, May Booker, a grandmother in her 70s, had asked if she could perform with Thin Lizzy. The song was rearranged for the purposes of the TV performance, with Lynott singing different lyrics, Booker playing a keyboard solo that she had written herself.

The band's regular keyboard player, Darren Wharton, performed alongside her. She contributed backing vocals together with Wharton and the band's other guitarist Snowy White. Afterwards and the show's host Jimmy Savile presented Booker with the usual Jim'll Fix It medal, some Thin Lizzy memorabilia and a framed copy of the sheet music for her solo. Warrant covered the song on their 2001 cover album. "Hollywood" was covered by Adler's Appetite on their 2005 EP of the same name.
