In Memoriam: Our Beloved Founder, Mark Spehar


This website is the manifestation of a vision conceived by a gentleman named Mark Spehar.

It was Mark’s idea to create a magazine that captured the spirit of the shoreline and its people. It was Mark’s idea to insist on the best design and the best writing. Coastal Connecticut was Mark’s letter to the shoreline. It was his personal Esquire Magazine and if you knew Mark you know that is not a lightly considered statement.

We lost Mark last fall, but not his vision or spirit. He was a guy who could talk hip-hop, basketball, Daniel Woodrell, Jackson Browne, Damien Rice, Terence Mailck, Martin Scorcese, vintage Mercedes cars, Burberry’s, Brooks Brothers and The Allman Brothers. And that was just one conversation.

Go easy. We all shine on, brother.
