New NightLife Targets A Different Hamptons Crowd

^ LMAO totally ^" Apr 28, 11 11:05 AM

LOL slow down hotshot because you completely failed at reading comprehension. Elliot's comment was taking offense at the quote which he interpreted as calling 60 year old people "over the hill"." Apr 28, 11 12:16 PM

UPDATE: Storm Lessens In Intensity; Should Make Landfall At 10 a.m.

We did not have the heavy sustained winds or the torrential rain on the east end. However the gusts were real. The gusts took out the trees, which took out the power. Just be glad we don't have flooding like up in VT." Aug 29, 11 5:42 PM

Camp Developer Files $65 Million Lawsuit Against Project Critics

wowwww.. I can't believe the level of drama that has erupted from this issue! I very recently used to live directly across the street from where this proposed camp is / was slated to be built, and I can tell you from the people that I've talked to in the neighborhood about it that none of them wants the camp there, and I can totally sympathize. Alas, it's a free country." Oct 24, 11 5:17 PM

Quiet Skies Coalition Keeps Airport Debate Alive

When i used to live in noyac we used to hear planes flying so low, they sounded like they were coming right at you. I was once woken up early in the morning, my eyes shot wide open suddenly to what I believed to be the sound of a plane making a crash landing in my neighborhood. I was a teenager and in a punk rock band, so I was perfectly accustomed to loud noise. That's how low they fly." Nov 3, 11 4:28 PM

Motorist Beaten By Three Women In Bathing Suits During Traffic Jam

To anyone reading this who drives on the east end. Never EVER get out of your car to confront someone in a road rage. Doesn't matter what they did or how angry you are. You are taking your lives in your hands. Road rage is very serious - people become animals in the blink of an eye and getting out to confront them is a direct animal challenge. Fighting over road rage is not worth it. Just stay cool and set a positive example for the drivers around you. Stay human please." Jul 29, 12 11:12 AM

UPDATE: County Road 39 Reopens Six Hours After Crash

There are lots of poorly designed roadways out here but most are inconveniences. This area however is deadly. Making a left to go east from the north side of co rd 39 is absurdly dangerous." Jul 29, 12 3:02 PM

UPDATE: Police Identify Victims In Fatal Crash On Sunday In East Hampton

Sure are a lot of bad accidents lately.." Jul 29, 12 3:06 PM

By "seriously out of control" are you referring to the amount of time it takes to clear the road or the frequency of terrible accidents?" Jul 29, 12 5:51 PM

UPDATE: Bicyclist Taken To Stony Brook University Hospital; Cause Of Accident Unknown

I think you mean county road 39, not hampton road. Hampton road is a few miles south of there." Aug 2, 12 9:49 PM

Well i'll be damned. I never realized little road was called hampton street." Aug 3, 12 8:26 AM

Gregg Saunders, Whole Foods Developer, Lost In East Hampton Crash

On the subject of texting, fault, etc which we have frequently found ourselves on recently with all of the accidents in our impetus to find closure in these tragedies, I would like to offer the following perspective: It's not one small thing (texting) that causes these incidents, it is a general attitude towards driving that has prevailed in this country for a long time, since well before cell phones. We Americans do not take driving seriously for some reason. We don't take good care of our roads, we do stupid things like stuff our rear window with stuffed animals, and we think we can multitask while we drive, eating, texting, looking through the glove-box, etc. Texting has definitely made this much clearer and worse, but the root cause is the seriousness we lack when we get behind the wheel. We don't seem to acknowledge the gravity and danger of what we are doing. Maybe the road test is not thorough enough. I'm not saying we are the only ones who are guilty and I'm not hating on my country by any means, but in other countries I have visited, people take driving more seriously and there are fewer accidents. This is why we can never have an autobahn. I don't mean for this to sound like a lecture. This is such a tragedy. RIP Greg Saunders and everyone else who has died behind the wheel this summer. This is all very unfair." Aug 10, 12 12:40 PM

UPDATE: Crew Buries Whale On Beach In Hampton Bays

On a semi-related note (burying things at the beach), a week or two ago my buddy was body surfing in sagaponack and came down on a giant rusted deer-fencing stake. Luckily he only scraped his leg on it and it wasn't serious. He pulled the stake out of the sand and brought it to a trash can. How on earth do you think that got in the ocean?" Aug 12, 12 11:18 AM

UPDATE: Description Released Of Man Who Fled Hampton Bays Double Stabbing

Apparently one goes to a bar in hampton bays armed with a deadly weapon? What kind of person does that?" Aug 18, 12 11:51 AM

I knew someone was gonna point out that the weapon(s) in question were not reported, and that it could have been procured on site, but I think it's a fair assumption to make that someone involved in a stabbing probably tends to be armed. In any case my more central point I was expressing was disgust with the violent machismo. " Aug 18, 12 3:49 PM

Hamptons Hot Jobs: Roofers Tolerate Temperatures For The High Life

Wearing a white shirt keeps you cooler than taking your shirt off guys, and protects you from a multitude of dangers associated with overexposure to sun rays, so i guess you are mainly working on your tan." Aug 19, 12 2:52 PM

UPDATE: Description Released Of Man Who Fled Hampton Bays Double Stabbing

@ ICE, I agree carrying a knife is not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself. Knives are useful tools and I certainly don't begrudge people the right to protect themselves either. However if it IS for self-protection, in my opinion, training in hand to hand combat is much safer and more effective than relying on a blade. Similar to the dangers of owning a gun, the odds are that you will end up getting sliced yourself." Aug 19, 12 3:32 PM

Hampton Bays Man Charged With Sexually Abusing Preteen Girl

Latino, not Hispanic. Get it right ;)" Aug 20, 12 5:19 PM

I'm with you. These predators obviously do not have enough fear, and since they obviously have no conscience, we have to up the fear. And I don't buy that they have no control over it, that's total BS. Sexual urges are strong indeed, few urges stronger, but we're human beings, thinking creatures, not animals. We make CHOICES. The biggest problem with such a harsh punishment is - what if you convict someone and it turns out they're innocent? OOPS!" Aug 20, 12 5:27 PM

Romney Makes Second Visit To The Hamptons On Friday

That's putting it lightly. This guy needs to have his mouth taped shut." Aug 20, 12 5:29 PM

Helicopter Route Change On The Table Again

Just curious if any of you have experience with air traffic control. I hate the sound of low-flying jets and copters over my house as much as anyone, but maybe the ATC is more complex than we're giving it credit for. That said - I live about 6 miles west of the airport, and I've had planes flying so low over my house that it's woken me up from a dead sleep. Terrible." Aug 22, 12 4:53 PM

UPDATE: One Airlifted, Several Others Injured In Three-Vehicle Crash; Montauk Highway Reopens

There was another accident at noyac road and whitney road at about 5:15 today. I happened to pass by right after it had happened. A modern compact car rear-ended a 1970's buick skylark convertible. both cars totaled, thankfully no injuries. You'll probably read about it tomorrow. The amount of accidents this summer is out of control." Aug 28, 12 8:46 PM

Knowing How To Play The Speeding Ticket Game

I used to get a lot of speeding tickets when I was younger - all of them in the town of southampton. I showed up for court every time rather than send them a check in the mail. I used that supporting deposition to get out of several tickets without paying a dime, but this article is right that it doesn't really work anymore. Westhampton cop cars print the full supporting dep out in their patrol car right at the traffic stop and hand it to you with your ticket, so there goes that. Still it doesn't hurt to ask, especially if you contest the situation. Much better to do that than to try and argue with the officer who pulled you over because that will go nowhere fast. But even without the supporting dep, just by showing up, you get the court appointed DA on your side who will plea down the charge on your behalf, to a failure to signal or a seatbelt infraction, less fine, less points, sometimes no points at all. It's time consuming - sometimes you have to wait an hour just to meet with the DA, but if money is tight or you want to keep your license clean, it's worth it." Aug 31, 12 7:57 AM
