Southampton Town To Test Blinking Light System To Reduce Traffic

Some of us work 2-3 jobs to try and continue to live here because it is our home and where we grew up. I'm not "coming back" from anywhere. Also, since I spend at least 2 hours sitting in that traffic commuting from Hampton Bays to Bridgehampton in the summer I don't have time to "knit". Not sure you can relate to that."

New Livery Driver License Contemplated For Southampton Town

I think the real problem is that a ride from the Public House to Hampton Bays taken last weekend cost $68!! If anyone really wanted to eliminate the drunk driving problem around here they would make an effort to make public transportation more accessible and affordable. When you have to spend almost a hundred bucks for the 10 minute ride home you start thinking about taking the chance of driving it.

Engineers To Collect Traffic Data In Southampton Town This Week In Preparation For County Road 39 Blinking Light Program

How about the ridiculous light at Rt. 24 and Bellow Pond Rd.??? It backs traffic up all the way down 24 past Red Creek Rd. and the rest area. Plus, it sends hundreds of vehicles speeding down Red Creek Rd. Someone start the light rail please!!!!!

UPDATE: Zeldin Claims Victory, Says 'Powerful Message' Was Sent In 1st District Race; Throne-Holst Concedes

Please people stop the hate. Let's ALL work to make OUR country great!! I can't stand reading these comments anymore. Trump nor Obama make me embarrassed to be an American. You do. I'm embarrassed to share a Town with you.

I didn't vote for him, but I sure as hell hope he is the best President we ever had, and if so I will gladly vote for him in 4 years!!" Nov 9, 16 9:28 AM

East Hampton Residents Form Committee To Oppose Bus Depot For East Hampton School District

Just my two cents, I don't live in EH, but I work out at Planet Fitness in Hampton Bays most early mornings. It abuts the HB bus depot. In the winter they start the busses early and keep them running (I imagine to warm them up for the students which is thoughtful) for quite a while. When I walk out of the gym it is difficult to breathe with all of the exhaust fumes. I would not think that would be appreciated in a residential neighborhood." Nov 17, 16 9:38 AM

Local Residents To Make A Statement With Women's March On Washington

I voted for Hillary but am willing to see what Trump does before forming an opinion about his policies. I would love to see him be the best president we ever had. My question to you is whether you did the same when Obama was elected 8 years ago. Many people that are now preaching that we need to get behind the president or are un-American were Team McConnell 8 years ago. I can't stand hypocrisy." Jan 18, 17 9:58 AM

Firefighters Rescue Parrot Stuck In Tree in Eastport On Wednesday Night

I appreciate the firefighters efforts but 2 departments and 25 firefighters to rescue a BIRD in a tree is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. " Jun 8, 17 3:06 PM

Let me clarify that in no way were the firefighters ridiculous, I'm talking about the people that called them to rescue their BIRD from a tree!!" Jun 8, 17 4:51 PM

Zeldin Defends Comments About Donald Trump Jr., Voices Concerns About Threats By Celebrities

Um...I have Obamacare..I pay $750 per month for a single person policy. I choose it because I am not tied to a policy controlled by my employer. An option that would not exist without Obamacare.

I don't mind people standing up for what they believe. I admit I don't know everything nor have I lived other people's experiences. I do mind hypocrisy and ignorance. It helps no one. I also hate condescension and just flat out meanness. But that's just me. " Jul 21, 17 1:38 PM

UPDATE: East Hampton Town Officials Denounce Violence In Charlottesville

I read the comments on this page which, let's face it, aren't comments as much as they are hate filled insults of people on either sides of the spectrum and am completely disheartened. Hating each other and being right is you're number one priority. Remember when we used to be proud to be Americans??? Remember when we used to think we could do anything, solve any problem?? You're so pre-occupied with your side winning that you can't even see that you're losing it for all of us. Turn off Fox News, turn off MSNBC, for God sakes stop commenting on Press articles for one day, it's beautiful out, go to the beach!!" Aug 17, 17 4:32 PM

Southern Pine Beetle Infestation Continues To Spread In East Hampton Town

I'm concerned about all the dead trees that are left on the ground. They are everywhere on Red Creek Rd. in Hampton Bays. It seems like a fire hazard waiting to happen if we get some dry weather." Nov 30, 17 11:54 AM

Women's March Draws A Crowd In Sag Harbor On Saturday

I think the Press has to change the comment format. I thinks it’s time to eliminate the ability to comment anonymously. Perhaps follow the News Review where your Facebook profile is associated with your posts. If the people posting these comments had to put their name underneath perhaps the vile rhetoric would at least be slightly curbed. I can’t even bring myself to read this paper any more due to the spewing of hate it exposes me to on both sides." Jan 21, 18 5:21 PM

That's interesting. I could see how that would be true. I'll check that out." Jan 22, 18 9:34 AM

Southampton Village Residents Seek Park Alternatives That Target Teens And Seniors

Always thought it was odd that you're not allowed to throw balls or frisbees at Agawam Park. What is a park for??" Feb 1, 18 11:41 AM

UPDATE: Police Offer No Leads In Thursday's County Road 39 Fatality

Shout out to the SH Village Police pulling people over on Hill St. and making everything worse for what I imagine were cell phone violations. We've been trapped in the car for over 2 hours at that point and literally not moving, nice show of compassion.

LIRR Will Offer Several Trains, From Both West And East, For Spectators During U.S. Open

How about additional trains that go further east than just Southampton?? Some of us live on one side of the Open and work on the other side. My Plan B involves a tent planted somewhere in BH for Thursday and Friday." May 4, 18 3:22 PM
