  • For some affluent Chinese, owning property in the Hamptons makes sense, South Fork brokers said, calling the U.S. market more "safe and secure."
  • Several residents and their representatives spoke both for and against East Hampton Village’s plan to designate two dozen houses and a windmill as timber-frame landmarks at a village board meeting on Friday.
  •     The East Hampton Village Board will attempt to stop John and Suzanne Cartier from building a second house on their property at 105 Main Street, even though the zoning board of appeals determined earlier this month that their plans conform to zoning requirements.
        The village board voted on Friday to hire the law firm Lamb and Barnosky to commence legal actions to “preclude the proposed disturbance of the premises,” which is covered by a scenic easement granted to the village in 1975.

With the arrival of Bob Dylan and, in quick succession, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to American ears, creativity exploded within the genre.

  • Word quickly spread, at midday on Tuesday, that 10 gallons of gas could be had, free of charge, at W.F. McCoy on Montauk Highway in Amagansett. By 12:30 p.m., a line of about 20 vehicles stretched from the service station to Cross Highway
