Storm Brews Over Georgica Beach Fence

Of course he'll get his land back if the beach comes back. New York legal precedent (and law) clearly shows that everything below the average high-tide mark is public, so as that average progresses seaward this guy's property will do so also." Sep 5, 11 1:21 PM

Apparently the son told his neighbor that he' s a surfer and a member of the Surfrider's Foundation. Ha! One of their main goals is to protect beach access!
As for the sandbags, who cares where the sand comes from. It's ugly and stupid and a violates the sanctity of a sacred public place, and also the law.
NY courts have repeatedly ruled that private property ends at the mean high-tide line and that beaches are the public domain. These greedy people need to be stopped. Unfortunately the village of East Hampton is gutless and won't do it.

Nobody is trying to "take their land". He can claim it all he wants. Just don't block the public's right to walk on their beach and don't pollute Georgica with ugly, plastic sandbags that won't save anything in the next big storm. This is just about greed. They own a multi-million dollar property with or without this parcel of Georgica.
I wish they'd just relax and enjoy their slice of paradise but I suppose that's just asking too much." Sep 6, 11 7:52 PM

looks more like the beginnings of a chain-link fence, or something much much worse." Sep 7, 11 8:16 AM

Court Summons For Georgica Beach Property Owner, Fence Builder

"Neighbors complained"... Every single person who goes to that beautiful beach has complained... and the longer this is allowed to stand the louder the complaints are going to get. What's next? Landscape lighting-spotlights onto the beach? East Hampton Village and the DEC need to get control of this situation! " Sep 8, 11 3:36 PM
