Man Dressed As Jesus Journeys To Montauk

Well, the outfit is somewhat Biblical. But "dressed" as Jesus is a visual stretch.
I prefer the historically inaccurate Jesus. The one that looks like that 'Barry Gibb' guy." Jun 8, 12 5:32 PM

Pavilion Gets Green Light From Southampton Village Officials

As an addendum. Southampton apparently recoils at the idea of using great local architects for their plans.

The Parrish, who laughingly claims to support local art, went all the the Europe for their new building's architectural firm instead of using local talent.

And now the Village goes to David Rockwell in NYC (who doesn't know @%$& about the local color or flavor) to design the pavilion.
Congratulations on another slap in the face to local artists and architects." Jun 18, 12 1:55 PM

As an aside. the "pavillion" looks like it belongs in the 1960's NYC World's Fair. Romantic retro-styling most likely cretaed by some young architectural lackie who is obsessed with the 1960's stylings of "Mad Men".

This design is TOTALLY unrelated to the village and thoroughly out of context with the local architecture and" Jun 18, 12 1:59 PM

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

Hello, Sam andIcecreamman, I found the same in a google search. It appears that there is not a wealth of info on Ajax and I still don't know if the two are related. Very opaque background. But not to worry. This mystery buyer said they would " do the right thing for the vilage". Whew!!! I guess I was concerned for nothing :-)" Jun 19, 12 9:20 AM

Pavilion Gets Green Light From Southampton Village Officials

To answer your question- I believe they are neither evil nor stupid. They are simply afraid for their jobs.

Hence the need to hire STARchitects- so they can hide behind the "name" when the plan goes poorly." Jun 19, 12 2:56 PM

Hello, susanarm. You bring up a very enlightening and accurate point. It amazes me that the village was so strict with the Parrish's original plans yet they completely "rolled over" when the big money guys appeared.

Sadly, we all know the answer to this puzzling behavior on the part of the Village....money talks! Period! It has nothing whatsoever to do with "community" or "local history". " Jun 22, 12 2:49 PM

UPDATE: Sears To Remain In Custody, Orders Of Protection To Be Requested For Children

I can see HighHatSize's technical point. Though whatever the technical nature of the images, they apparently still qualified as child pornography according to the law.

But JESUS! That IS a lulu of a story. Jay will be tradin' in the 'ol angel wings for an orange jump suit, I guess." Jan 25, 13 3:35 PM

Serious Talent At Guild Hall's Lifetime Achievement Awards

Protesters Against Illegal Immigration Gather In Southampton On Tuesday

It's a Red Letter Day!

On the comments section of 27 East, it's inevitable that EVERY single news story, no matter how diverse or far flung the subject matter, ends up with heated arguments about illegal immigration. If there was an article about a potato sack race, the predictable comments would ballistically political.

Well here's everyone's chance to finally stay on topic :)" May 23, 13 8:15 PM

UPDATE:Oddone Released On Bail Monday

The Bridge Golf Club is continuing to spend a fortune on attorneys trying to free a murderous, loser caddy who was in their employ. Why??? Really. Why? " Dec 21, 13 2:01 PM

That's also my question. What is even odder than the employer paying for the original defence fees is the fact that this very high powered NYC legal team is now working for oddone PRO BONO! For free!!! Why?? What is up with that? Perhaps an interested journalist will dig up the REAL motivation for the murderer's employers and legal team putting everything on the line for a murdering loser caddy." Dec 23, 13 8:53 PM

In the video his attorney, Kedia, says that he (oddone) is, "Not a flight risk because he never fled from anything". Except of course the night he fled the scene and was picked up a mile away from the crime. How do these smiling attorneys sleep at night?" Dec 23, 13 9:22 PM

UPDATE: Travel Restrictions Lifted But Residents Asked To Stay Off Roadways As Recovery Continues

Only the Southampton Press would BLOCK CRITICAL WEATHER INFORMATION to the public. Publisher should be ashamed of themselves.
