UPDATE: New Owner Of Former Library Building Is Former Goldman Sachs Partner

Its the trifecta. Morley, The Parrish Art Museum and a retired Goldman Sachs partner with a long and elaborate record of litigation, class-action lawsuits and big time, big money trouble. The Parrish looks at its location as a necessary evil. Beggars can't be choosers so they'll build high speed rail from NYC to the museum's back door and act like they are in somewhere else. We've been sold out and not at all to the highest bidder. When someone buys prime real estate like that for as deep a discount as this, it reminds me of what my grandfather used to say. If it smells like dung, feels like dung and looks like dung - its dung." Jun 19, 12 1:16 PM

The old if they don't agree with me they must be brainwashed because I am so logical and intelligent. To answer your question I must return to wisdom I gained as a child courtesy of my first boss "son you don't know what you don't know.''." Jun 20, 12 8:03 AM

Former Library Building's New Owner Says He Will Restore Building

Glad to see nobody is being swayed by the high paid PR firm. They aren't really doing a good job. I could have eaten a bowl of alphabet soup and burped up a better statement than the old and tired ''former grandeur'' line. It is highly unethical for a board member, trustee or any other related party to use their position and obvious conflict of interest to conduct a transaction of this sort. These people should step down from the board immediately so that objective advisory services can be provided to the museum. The Parrish Family did not intend to leave a legacy such as this. This move does not support the Mission of the Parrish, it is against the fiduciary responsibility that trustees take on and it shows zero respect for the input of the local citizens. The flaks at the PR firm and the Parrish think so little of you that they were hoping a few appeasing statements by the PR firm after WE outed the details of the transaction would make this all go away.

Trustees of the American Museum of Natural History are subject to this fiduciary statement as take from their by-laws:


The responsibility of the Trustees is to act in good faith and with loyalty and due care so as to exercise their business judgment on an informed basis in what they reasonably and honestly believe to be in the best interest of AMNH and the public it serves. Due care requires the degree of diligence, care and skill that an ordinarily prudent person in a like position would exercise under similar circumstances. In discharging their duty of loyalty to AMNH and determining what is in the best interests of AMNH, a Trustee or officer may not use his or her position for personal or financial profit, gain or other advantage.

In taking any action and in overseeing the Museum’s assets, Trustees may rely on information, opinions, reports or statements, including but not limited to financial statements or other financial data, in each case prepared or presented by (1) one or more officers or employees of the Museum, whom the Trustees believe to be reliable and competent in the matters presented, (2) legal counsel, public accountants or other persons as to matters which the Trustees believe to be within such person’s professional or expert competence, or (3) a Committee upon which they do or do not serve, duly designated in accordance with the provision of the By-laws, as to matters within its designated authority.

Bishop, Altschuler Divided Over Immigration Issue

For an "outsourcer" and some "baggers", they are proving to be extremely formidable opponents. The career politician raised less money than a ''bagger'' who is an ''outsourcer''. This should just about put the nail on the coffin for the provost from the deserted mount in Shinnecock. He will have been beaten by a racist, outsourcer darling of the baggers. Have a nice weekend!"

Town May Not Have Funds For Tuckahoe School Sidewalk

We need a sidewalk for all of the people that will be walking to the new supermarket. Why doesn't Southampton Town just bring a wrecking ball to the Tuckahoe School. Between their hitmen at the Southampton CAC, their complete absence and silence during the budget fubar and their lack of desire to provide a freakin' sidewalk - God forbid we screw up the privet hedge of a hack local artist ne surfer dude. Keep track of who said there isn't 28,000 for a sidewalk. That same person will need to find $28,000,000 the moment a child or family member slips in the ice and gets run over by a car pulling away from drop off." Jun 28, 12 5:41 AM

Undoubtedly. Pay your school taxes and stifle it. You're all talk and no action. I challenge you to run for a school board. Ain't a soul on the planet afraid of chief1. Opinions are like apertures, everyone has one chief. Now all you have to do is prove your point. Find a non educated house-wife on a school board and you won't win the coveted Southampton Press/27East most ridiculous post of the day award. Better hurry, not much time left. " Jun 28, 12 5:47 AM
