The Fresh Market Is Store Interested In Southampton Village Site

A little off topic but does anyone know whatever happened to the proposed market in Wainscott (where the old car dealership was)? We need one desperately. The small Citarella closed and now the Hampton Market is closed due to fire. Please Fresh Market, come to Wainscott!" Nov 30, 11 2:00 PM

Whole Foods Is Coming To East Hampton For The Summer

Thank you Mr. Saunders for all your efforts. You have done your part. We all now have to do ours so that Whole Foods will stay on. I'll be there opening day and every week thereafter!" Apr 13, 12 1:50 PM

Old Stove Pub Sign Will Have To Comply With Code

It doesn't matter as the light will be off soon when the restaurant goes out of business yet again. The food is atrocious. On par with airline food. Seriously." Oct 10, 12 2:49 PM

Process Could Lead To Helicopter Restrictions At East Hampton Airport, Consultants Tell Board

Umm. I live in Georgica and vote the flight path stays over you neighborhood North Sea Citizen." Feb 6, 13 1:46 PM

East End Towns, Villages Will Introduce Bans On Plastic Bags

I actually reuse those plastic bags. On the other hand, those thicker plastic bags or worse - those fancy "reusable" bags are reproducing like gerbils in my closet and are really useless after the initial use. I actually just brought a bunch to the dump last week. " Nov 5, 14 2:35 PM

Cantwell Doesn't Want Another HomeGoods Debacle In East Hampton

I don't understand how a reputable architect can think this placement near the road looks attractive. And 98 parking spaces??? One can only hope they fail quickly and a RiteAid or CVS moves in. If you are going to have a big ugly building at least make it useful." Dec 3, 14 1:08 PM

East Hampton Town Pulls Back On Weekend Helicopter Ban

This is a joke. The law is useless without the helicopter ban. So let Montauk and SH enact their own bans if the Board is so concerned about them. I am sure the folks at Blade are breaking out the champagne...." Apr 7, 15 2:41 PM

East Hampton Town's Proposed Airport Curfew Will Still Cut Down On Helicopters, Won't Hurt Other Airports

Because this has nothing to do with being neighborly. It's an excuse. The truth is the board got spooked by potential lawsuits and bullying by the "business" community. They went eye to eye and the board blinked. It's that simple. I don't understand how these new rules will be enforced - is someone writing down tail numbers? I predict nothing much will change."

East Hampton Pilot Pens Petition For Safety At East Hampton Airport

I just saw an add for Gotham helicopters with their new service to East Hampton beginning Memorial Day weekend. They have quiet helicopters. HAHAHAHAHA" Apr 30, 15 1:40 PM

Pls excuse typo- I meant "ad" not "add". I was distracted by the absurdity of it all. These new regs will make NO difference. " Apr 30, 15 1:43 PM

mcgrawkeber - I see your letters to EH Star and other places. So you are obviously quite knowledgeable on this issue. Can you please explain what happened to the weekend ban? Why specifically do you think that Thorn-Holst blinked "at the 11th hour?" Just curious..." Apr 30, 15 3:23 PM

Uber Arraignments Adjourned To July; Attorney Says Criminal Records Is Biggest Fear For Drivers

The rules are not the same. That's the whole point. The rules were created to specifically address Uber's business model. This is a clear case of small town corruption, passing onerous laws to favor existing taxi businesses. The problem is that uber is a game changer. Maybe uber the company won't survive but the technology of hailing rides through apps is here to stay. In a few years the traditional taxi will be obsolete. Nothing can change this."

East Hampton Rental Registry Law Returns, Slimmed Down

All sounds reasonable but how will it be enforced? Is someone going to monitor Air BNB for listings without numbers? If so, how much will owner be fined?" Oct 7, 15 1:40 PM

Monitoring to be done by neighbors. This law is great for neighbors, not so good for landlords on Air BNB." Oct 8, 15 2:02 PM

BookHampton To Close In East Hampton and Southampton

Geez. I was on the owner's side until I read her response. There was nothing "shameful" about this article. And HRC is a famous face! If you are this touchy with your customers no wonder you are closing." Oct 27, 15 1:21 PM

State Poised To Strip Local Authority Over Uber; East Hampton Official Warns Of 'Chaos In Montauk'

I am convinced that anyone who is against Uber (or any comparable company) doesn't understand what it is (ie, they are are technologically illiterate), or they have never used it." Apr 4, 17 1:39 PM

East Hampton Wants To Buy Star Room Property, Heading Off Car Wash Bid

I live in Wainscott and actually wouldn't mind a car wash, Having to go all the way to SH (esp in the summer) is a total pain. I really don't see how this is any worse than Home Goods and its glaring bright lights. At least a car wash is useful. " Sep 25, 17 1:39 PM

Pushy Sales Tactics Brings Unwanted Vibe To Southampton Village

There is the same problem in East Hampton. A face cream store on Newtown - I literally cross the street to avoid walking by the store!" Jul 24, 18 2:47 PM
