Wainscott community members see disconnect in developer's vision for Plitt Ford property

I'll admit I haven't been as far east as Wainscott for years but earlier this week I was on LI to meet with a client in Sag Harbor. If the traffic in Wainscott is similar to what I experienced this past Tuesday afternoon from Southampton to Bridgehamprton I have to ask, can any new store along the highway really make it that much worse? I grew up on the East End but hadn't ventured that far out since the '90s and was kind of shocked at how often I was inching along in traffic on my way to Sag Harbor. Between the traffic and getting stopped while on my bike by a Sag Harbor cop who told me bikes were not allowed on Main St. and made me get off and walk it, I wondered if I would ever want to return.

To label Trader Joe's a "big-box, high-end health food store" is a ridiculous statement and makes me wonder if the author of this article has ever been in one. I walk to a Trader Joe's that is about a half-mile from my home and do probably 90% of my food shopping there. They do offer a lot of healthier alternatives to typical supermarket fare and I also find their prices on more traditional items are lower than local supermarkets. I think a lot of year-round residents would find a lot to like about Trader Joe's. Just my humble opinion." Jul 16, 10 2:00 PM

Laszlo: I hope you're not addressing this remark to me, there was nothing related to SB 1070 in my comment. But as long as you brought it up...

I agree, Jan Brewer is an embarrassment. But please, don't delude yourself with generic statistics about "border areas." There are still very dangerous places along the border - Google "The Third Country, Tucson Weekly" for an informative read. SB 1070 isn't about border security though. SB 1070 is Politics 101: Take the most divisive issue available and turn up the volume to divert attention away from how badly you've mismanaged everything else. " Jul 22, 10 8:29 PM

Developers agree to reduce number of proposed condos, in exchange for preserving Canoe Place Inn

I enjoy going to Tide Runners when up that way, would hate to see it go. Maybe the next article on this will be more complete and include interviews with the operators of both of the restaurants on that property.

Occupants evicted from former Guldi home in Westhampton

I've never seen an eviction where the furniture is wrapped up, how very classy of them. Why an East Meadow mover though? So much for patronizing local business." Sep 13, 10 2:18 PM

Oceanfront Boardwalk Part Of Town Plans For Neptune Property In Hampton Bays

You forgot The Barge. Like Hampton Beach Club and Drift Inn, it too mysteriously burned down in the off season.

Hampton Bays has to be the last place any young person would want to come out for the weekend. It has become the land of NO. No fun!" Dec 12, 13 8:06 PM

Zeldin To Vote In Favor Of Obamacare Repeal Bill

"We're the only first world country with a for profit system" Bingo. Can anyone say with a straight face that our for-profit health insurance companies add any value to the system? Well, probably, there are some good liars and shills out there in US politics.

I'll vote for Bernie in the primary but I'm afraid he may be too much of a gentleman and too honest to get elected in the current environment. That and the corporate media gives his positions and proposals little time as it remains fixated on the dumbest of the dumb remarks and attacks on the other side. It also doesn't help that the DNC chair is in the tank for Hillary." Jan 7, 16 1:00 PM
