7-Eleven quietly moving into Montauk

Since when is Montauk so uppidy that a 7-11 is too low brow? 10 years ago they would have held a parade." Jul 14, 10 5:55 PM

Sagaponack and town still wrestling to rein in crowds at popular beach gathering

The hipsters are SO going to be doing this at Ditch...I'd guess by next week." Jul 14, 10 9:47 PM

East Hampton Town Board approves wind turbine on Long Lane farm

While I agree with the sentiments expressed for weening ourselves off oil, I disagree with this approval. Pete is right - there needs to be a coherent plan for these. 120 feet tall with 23 foot blades - for an irrigation pump on a single property? Wow. " Jul 16, 10 5:24 PM

7-Eleven quietly moving into Montauk

Isn't Coach a retail chain? And Scoop, et. al.?" Jul 16, 10 7:15 PM

Montauk residents considering recall for Wilkinson, Quigley

Montauk should go ahead and press to form and incorporate their own village (which would require the Town's approval). It would probably save the Town money, and MTK could do as they please. " Jul 21, 10 6:57 PM

No I meant village, which is the "incorporated political subdivision" permitted in NY State under a town. Recent local examples include Sagaponack and West Hampton Dunes." Jul 22, 10 1:48 AM

Senator Gillibrand visits Montauk in support of local fishing economy

Wha? She is widely considered the favorite to win in November. Despite her relatively lowname recognition, esp. compared to Schumer, far fewer people can name either of the two leading republicans running in the Sept. primary to challenge her." Jul 28, 10 11:15 PM

East Hampton Town government will move into "new" digs next month

Be careful what you wish for - "they" will quickly wind up depleting the fund for all manner of non-tax-relief stunts, ala Stony Brook in SH (not that "we taxpayers" can vote on it or otherwise touch it). CPF has been a tremendous benefit to the region, and after the hijinks of the past several years hopefully it will be left alone to do what it was intended for. " Aug 9, 10 5:14 PM

Controversial Montauk 7-Eleven to open on Wednesday

As stated earlier, 10 years ago they would've held a parade for this 'grand openning'." Aug 31, 10 11:44 AM

New proposal for religious boundary on public roads spurs questions in Westhampton Beach

Several eruv's in NYC (Williamsburg, Crown Heights, Lower East Side) are done by running the string between buildings simply with the permission of the property owners (most/all of whom are orthodox) without any govt approval or involvement, even though in several cases those lines (strings) cross over public streets. The key is getting rabinnical approval, which in several instances (a specific example is the lower east side) the rabbi has refused to extend the eruv beyond its existing, modest limits, despite repeated requests to do so. " Aug 31, 10 12:08 PM

Back to the drawing board for the Amagansett Lifesaving station

"Make it into a nightclub. Why think small with some little cafe?"
At first I thought your openning line was facetious; its incredible that you are serious with such a presposterous suggestion. Hey why not build an amusement park - there's so much shoreline, right? " Sep 6, 10 6:23 PM

Try adding some "entertainment" to Main beach or Georgica in EH Village and watch the uproar.
The Amagansett beaches are a gem, despite already suffering the indignity of litter from nightly bonfires, dogs, etc. Less truly is more." Sep 8, 10 8:23 PM

Family fights to keep last bit of a legacy: Seeks new lease for Montauk blockhouse

It was and is a great legacy, and we are forever in her debt. But that doesn't mean we're indebted to her children and, now, their children. I say give them a couple more years but at that point, back to the county." Sep 28, 10 4:30 PM

And editor, your reporters bias is showing, embarassingly." Sep 28, 10 4:32 PM

Demolition crews still at work at Quogue gas station

I havn't seen free air at a gas station in 10 years." Sep 28, 10 4:56 PM

East Hampton Town's tentative budget 11 percent less than 2010

Good start and I commend the Supervisor and staff but I would like to have seen the taxes stay where they are to build up a reserve/reduce the debt. That's $8 million a year that would go a long way to get the budget balanced. THEN start reducing taxes." Oct 4, 10 3:03 PM

Throne-Holst: No layoffs in 2011 tentative budget

The chief bldg inspector position in EH is vacant." Oct 4, 10 8:25 PM

Altschuler balks; debate with Bishop canceled

"...that other guy maddow." So now we know that, in addition to being a reactionary bigot, you're a homophobe. I feel sorry for you. " Oct 11, 10 5:28 PM

Bid To Bag Leaf Pickup

How many municipalities on LI, in NYS, for that matter throughout the USA pick up residents leaves? The answer is almost none. Its an expensive luxury and a relic. Putting aside the "cost - savings" dispute, the manpower time spent should be redirected to other needs within the highway dept. " Oct 15, 10 10:45 AM

Groups sue East Hampton Town over planned land sales

"The owners (CCOM on behalf of all of us)...". Wha? CCOM may speak for you but they don't speak for me and they are in no way, shape or form the "owners" of this property. Fact." Oct 20, 10 12:40 PM

Ballot Count Begins; Altschuler Travels To Washington

Privatize the (obscene) profits and socialize the (even more obscene) losses - thats what wall street demands of their DC republican water-carriers. And thats what they get. " Nov 17, 10 6:11 PM

White Files Civil Rights Lawsuit Against Southampton Town

Without knowing the player(s) or weighing in on the merits/lack thereof re the legal action, the fact is that it is illegal for any government organization (political subdivision) in NY State to discriminate in hiring based on race. Which is what you're suggesting. Which is also racist. " Dec 23, 10 6:30 PM

Springs Residents Sound Off About Illegal Multi-Family Housing

Illegal accessory apartments are a serious issue in Springs, but the other one is all of the unrelated renters living in single family houses.
Last year I accompanied a friend from NYC with his broker on a weekend tour of homes for sale - all in Springs. Out of the dozen or so homes viewed, all single family without accessory apartments, fully half of them were packed with renters (all apparently "work-force" types), including in basements and attics. I'm talking 6, 7, 8+ adults. The tell-tale clusters of beat up compact cars clogging driveways/lawns (plus the occasional landscaping truck) are evident all over the place. " Jan 12, 11 5:41 PM
