UPDATE: Second Sag Harbor Building Demolished, Parts Of Third May Have To Come Down Also

Well, the 80 years worth of tar on that flat roof probably had something to do with it. It was a powerful accelerant." Dec 20, 16 1:44 PM

Ludwick Attorneys Seek Dismissal Of Multiple Charges Connected To Fatal Crash In 2015

chief uno... I vote for your post above as the most "disgusting" post that I've seen on this site. You really don't seem to understand what has made this country the free democracy that it is.

I think it's time for you to go back where you belong....Russia as your political bent is more in line with Putin and his small handed friend from Queens. Why is it that men of weak character always feel more comfortable with a dictator in power?

East Hampton Town Republican Committee Celebrates President Trump With Inauguration Ball

That change in the air mentioned by Mr. Baietti was probably coming from Trump. He always looks like he's suffering from just having eaten a bad bit of cheese." Jan 21, 17 6:17 PM

North Haven Mayor To Meet With PSEG To Discuss Grid Reinforcements

Given the Jeff's failure from square one to negotiate the preservation of the "Point House" the village should, perhaps, find someone up to the job of bargaining with PSEG." Jan 25, 17 5:06 PM

Flanders Woman Starts Non-Profit To Tackle Environmental Issues

Just what is Ms. Kessler's background and what are her bonafides that would qualify her as a scientist? What evidence does she cite connecting Phragmites to fish kills??

The Non-native strain of Phragmites that is now dominant in New York State was introduced here from Europe as early as the late 1700's has been a known problem for a very long time and there are numerous removal strategies. The problem is that they all require complex restoration work and the attendant costs for large scale removal projects are prohibitive.

If you really want to do something to save the Peconic Estuary contribute to projects that will replace or remove old and inefficient septic systems.... That's what killing the bays.

PSEG Says FEMA Money Won't Pay For Burying Electric Lines Along Long Beach As Part Of North Haven Work

I sometimes wonder why it is that the mayor appears to support many policies that would benefit the real estate industry. A conflict of interest given that he has close family in the business? " Jan 29, 17 2:37 PM

Zeldin Blasts Russian 'Aggression' As Spy Ship Lurks Off Long Island

Nothing to worry about there. Besides Donald's caviar delivery they're just trying to get some investment tips... Listening in on the Hedgies cell calls... Getting some market tips from Robert and Rebekah Mercer and desperately trying to find out if Woody Johnson is really going to be Trump's flak at the Court of St. James. Vladimir would really like to buy the Jets like his Bro Mikhail Prokhorov did with the Brooklyn Nets and there's just too much uncertainty with Woody's appointment up in the air." Feb 16, 17 8:00 AM

State DEC ReleasesThird Draft Of Mute Swan Management Plan; Won't Cull Swans On Long Island

I've known you for over thirty years Fred and have supported you through thick and thin. However your statement " I’ve never gotten a call from anyone saying, ‘Those mute swans are bothering me—someone should do something about it." is just plain political pandering. Many of those complaining about the deer were dead set against culling until their expensive landscaping was reduced to stubble. then they turned around and wanted the herd eliminated. That's what I ran into when running the cull on North Haven in the '80's. The swans are doing the same damage to the benthic environment and water based fauna... I guess that you just can't see it from where you stand. How about doing some of your own research and lead rather than being led." Sep 14, 17 6:42 PM

Plaque Honors Sag Harbor Philanthropist

Let's hope that the plaque can be returned. My understanding based on the reading of more than a few sources is that "The Lady Bountiful" had a complicated relationship with Sag Harbor. The locals didn't take well to her all-encompassing philanthropy and considered her, in modern parlance a control freak. She even went as far as forbidding a dance to occur after a basketball game at the Antheum. Things really went south when she accused local contractors of fraud in connection with the building of Pierson High School. In 1912, just 4 years after installing herself in the Hunting house she left Sag Harbor in a fit of pique never to return!!! Why the whitewash now???" Sep 25, 17 3:45 PM

Billy Joel Denied Property Variance In Straw Vote

The photos above are of the wrong building. The ca. 1790 Federal house is to the right, faces Rector St. as it has since built and is only attached to the above building by a breezeway. When Sag Harbor's Historic was created in 1974 it was and is still listed as a contributing structure in the National Historic Register.

What is shown is the former Bayview Fishing Station which is on the same lot. The shed building that fronts on Bay St. was renovated and the large barn-like structure added after Mr. Joel purchased the property in 2002. The large barn-like structure replaced a very tiny shed (Maybe 8'x15' at best) and a roughly 5' x 8' free-standing walk-in freezer. " Sep 26, 17 8:53 AM

Sag Harbor Cinema Arts Center Plans Advance

They're not done sucking the air out of the room so far as other non-profits in the harbor are concerned... and as if the sign replacement wasn't enough, once again Gerry Mallow is laughing all the way to the bank. Quite a bindle of cash for a mostly burned out shell." Apr 5, 18 6:41 PM

U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin Sponsors New Law To Help Disabled Veterans

Vets certainly deserve far better treatment than they have received at the hands of both parties. Zeldin, however, is being used as a pawn in the bigger game plan to privatize services now rendered by the VA. This legislation is just the camel inserting his nose into the tent.

Privatization of government services is a road with a few successes but also many failures. Once profit rather than "doing the right thing" becomes the motive for VA services hold onto your wallets because costs will balloon beyond all expectations resulting in either increased taxation or the eventual decay of those services."

Manna Fish Farm Stuck On Sandbar Near Entrance To Shinnecock Canal

OK, I'll bite that hook. What is a "field head trout"? There's no reference to this species that I can find. A typo? Pacific Steelhead Trout perhaps? If so I'll be first in line to oppose its cultivation in the Atlantic where it is an alien species.
" May 15, 18 6:06 PM

An accidental release of Steelheads could wreak havoc with ongoing efforts to restore our native Atlantic Salmon. Millions have been spent to restore the population of this legendary native fish." May 15, 18 6:16 PM

Ok... Second bite but I'm on the edge of spitting the hook. Who made the oxymoronic suggestion that Steelhead (Sea-run form of coastal Rainbow Trout) were a "possible indigenous alternative" (in the Atlantic I assume) given that they are only native to the Northern Pacific Basin? goo.gl/5DyQbP

This is eerily similar to attempts at promoting the farming of Pacific oysters on the Atlantic coast in the 50's. Originally introduced into the Delaware Bay as a test they brought an oyster disease with them, MSX. The disease was first detected in that estuary in 1957 then in the Chesapeake by 1959. Mortalities to the native oyster stocks were in the 90% to 95% range and signaled the beginning of the end of the enormous oyster industry in Maryland and Virginia. By the 1960's it had spread from the Carolinas to Connecticut and by the end of that decade to Cape Cod and beyond.

Supergroup Crosby, Stills And Nash Has Sag Harbor Roots

Hey Annette! Has North Haven been annexed to Sag Habor again? John Sebastian and family bought 10 Sunset Beach Rd. on North Haven from the Stark family before selling it to Lovelady Powell. His younger brother Mark went to Pierson. I'd seriously question Crosby's memory. after all, if you can remember the 60's you weren't there!

Sag Harbor’s Life Story As Told By Historical Images

It's a well known historical fact that the rusty color of the water was due to magnetite, a naturally occurring iron oxide scattered throughout the layers of the terminal moraine that is Long Island. Sometimes seen on the surface of beaches especially on the ocean side of the South Fork. Locals know it as "Black Sand". It's mildly radioactive to boot. The story that it was rust from the tank is just an old wives tale. A good example of how history gets twisted around.

Google, Sag Harbor Company Iron, and you'll find a number of NY Health Dept. reports from the early 20th Century mentioning the iron problem. It also appears that the proprietors regularly ignored the remedial recommendations of the Department of Health." Jun 16, 18 5:03 PM
