There Go The Judge

1400 Meadow Lane

author on Nov 28, 2016

Here come the judge? Nope, there go the judge. In the biggest deal reported last week, Leslie Crocker Snyder, who has served in several positions on the bench, and her husband, Fredric Snyder, a pediatrician, have sold their estate on Meadow Lane in Southampton for a judicious $14 million.

The 2,280-square-foot house has four bedrooms and three baths and sits on 2.27 acres. This might seem rather modest, but the property faces the ocean and .… well, it is on the very desirable Meadow Lane in the village. The new owner is 1400 Meadow Lane LLC.

Leslie Crocker Snyder is a native of Baltimore and she had two uncles, Edward and Harry Danziger, who were successful film producers. Her father was dean of the Case Western Reserve School of Law in Ohio, from which she graduated, and she was admitted to the New York State Bar in 1967. She became a pioneer in New York City, becoming the first female to try felony and homicide cases as an assistant district attorney in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office headed by Frank Hogan and then Robert Morgenthau. Also while there, she founded the Sex Crimes Prosecution Bureau, the first of its kind in the nation.

During the ensuing years, she received several prosecutorial and judicial appointments. These included chief of trials at the Office of the Special Prosecutor Against Corruption, judge of the Criminal Court of New York City, acting justice of the New York State Supreme Court, and a Court of Claims judge. Among the trials Leslie Crocker Snyder presided over were ones dubbed by the media as “Natural Born Killers,” “Gheri Girls” and “Wild Cowboys.” She ran twice for Manhattan District Attorney, losing to Mr. Morgenthau in 2005, and, four years later, to the present office holder, Cyrus Vance Jr.

In recent years, when she wasn’t relaxing at her Southampton home, she appeared as a legal expert on “60 Minutes,” “The Today Show” and other television programs. More details about her life in the legal profession can be found in her memoir, “25 to Life.”

Planning Board Wants To Put Other Considerations Ahead Of Parking

Sag Harbor Village planning officials are exploring better ways to make decisions when considering redevelopment proposals, rather than looking at the number of parking spaces a project might have.

Sag Harbor Planning Board Wants Ban On Apartment-To-Office Conversions

To preserve an active Main Street and downtown in the village, the Sag Harbor Village Planning Board is pitching a ban on converting apartments to offices. The board is penning a memo to the Sag Harbor Village Board to urge legislation implementing a ban, and members want the Zoning Board of Appeals to also sign on to the idea. “To be blunt, it’s a travesty. It needs to be stopped,” Planning Board member Larry Perrine said during the board’s June 23 virtual meeting. He said turning residences into offices goes against the conceptual ideology of the village’s planning. “It’s against ... by Brendan J. OReilly

‘Zoom Effect’ Bolsters Hamptons Home Contract Signings In May

As residential real estate contract signings plummeted year-over-year in May in New York City and on the North Fork and the rest of Long Island, the number of home sales that entered into contract in the Hamptons held steady. Contract signings remaining flat, year to year, wouldn’t normally be cause for celebration for the South Fork real estate market, especially after a weak 2019. However, under the current conditions, the May 2020 results were phenomenal news for the industry locally.
