Investment Banker Sues Southampton Town Planning Board, Farmers Over Barn Denial

I sure wish that the folks in East Hampton would be so steadfast. The sprawl of Amagansett is getting out of hand. Next up, a trashy 7-11. I'm sure a White Castle will be sure to follow. " Mar 4, 14 11:14 AM

CVS To File For Special Exception Targeting Bridgehampton Main Street Site

Oh please. Nice attempt at instigating class warfare. The laws and ordinances have kept our community from turning into Queens East. This will always be a wealthy area. But your way of thinking will allow it to be turned into a trashy wealthy area. First a CVS, then 7-11s (whoops, they're already coming) then the precedent has ben set. We'll be seeing Quiznos and White Castle on every corner. The purpose of the Hamptons is to get away from all that kind of garbage and sprawl. " Apr 3, 14 2:02 PM

Thirty-Foot-Tall 'Walking Girl' Statue Causing A Stir In Westhampton

Is it permanent? I have no issue with it as long as it will eventually rotate out and something else comes in. It's kinda amateurish looking. " Jun 9, 14 5:46 PM

Montauk's Dock Restaurant Changes Sign Deemed Offensive To The Irish

As a yuppie hipster, I DEMAND that this sign be taken down!

Seriously though, I'm Irish... Montauk is full of Irish, specifically Irish fishermen. And they are known to get stupid drunk. So there's a hint of history behind the reference. Unlike some groups referenced in these comments, the Irish have no problem laughing at themselves, as long as it's lighthearted and playful. Which this clearly is.

Until you get some persnickety woman from the Irish Arts Center gets involved. " Jul 30, 14 9:33 AM

Your completely unsolicited and sanctimonious praise within an unrelated article means SO much more to everyone because you are a mother and grandmother. Thank god you've had children! Thank you! " Aug 5, 14 4:23 PM

Town's Proposed Special Exception Amendments Are Illegal, CVS Representatives Say

Bennett should sit in Bridgehampton traffic on any day of the week before he questions the need for an impact study. BH has become a miserable bottleneck in the Hamptons and everyone knows it, particularly on 27 along the Commons. " Sep 26, 14 7:42 PM

In Southampton Village, Construction Of New 40 Meadow Lane House Halted Pending Lawsuit

Once the owners of the new home prevail, they will surely bring a suit against these pests for their stall tactics. " Oct 8, 14 4:36 AM

In Light Of Anna Pump's Death, Pedestrian Safety Is Highlighted In Bridgehampton

You simply can't take a ten acre field with one small house and subdivide it into twelve six-bedroom Farrell homes, then act puzzled over what the heck is happening to our idillic community between South Hampton Village and Montauk. As development and sprawl continues at an uncontrolled pace, the traffic and drain on municipal resources will become an even greater issue than it is today. Residents will insist upon things like supermarkets, more chain stores and convenience stores, and even more low income housing to provide housing for people to be able to afford to live here and support it all. Being the bottleneck between Southampton and Montauk, Bridgehampton will face the brunt of this sprawl. Pretty soon, the appeal of the Hamptons will wane and everyone will forget about the peacefulness that it once was. It'll just be another part of Long Island that we as a civilization have screwed up. " Oct 15, 15 9:19 PM
