Airport control tower gets go-ahead from East Hampton

Everyone wants to take their corporate choppers and jets to their homes in the Hamptons but no one wants the noise. The usual unrealistic expectations of the rich and famous.
A tower will not increase traffic, it was cause a decrease. Many pilots don't like to be bothered by the extra communications required at a towered field.
As an Airline Transport rated pilot of 25+ years I can say that the addition of the tower will solve nothing at this airport other than to cause delays with hovering and circling of aircraft held outside the airport traffic area (outside 5 statue miles) as well as departure delays for the sequencing of traffic."
