  •     The Hurricane Sandy cleanup is estimated to cost East Hampton Village “considerably more” than the $200,000 Hurricane Irene did a year ago, according to Larry Cantwell, the village administrator.

       Mr. Cantwell blamed pavilion damage at Main Beach, buckled surfaces in the parking lot at Georgica Beach, and more downed trees than in last year’s storm. The confluence of a full moon, high tide, and winds in excess of 70 miles per hour contributed to the ocean’s surge over parking lots at Georgica, Wiborg, and Main beaches.

  • Increased foot traffic for East Hampton eateries; "Everybody just wanted to get out of the house."
  • The body of a woman between the ages of 45 and 50 was discovered at Georgica Beach in East Hampton Tuesday morning.
  • Outside groups have spent almost $3.3 million in the race for the House of Representatives this year, with the bulk of the money spent on behalf of Randy Altschuler, who is challenging the incumbent five-term Democrat.
  • Over 100 people gathered at the East Hampton High School auditorium Monday night to discuss whether a gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered community center should be established on the South Fork.
  •    The Isaac Osborn House at 88 Newtown Lane was erected during a decade when the Mexican-American War was fought, the postage stamp was invented, and the few buildings in East Hampton Village were surrounded by farmland. It, too, was once a farmhouse, in the middle of hundreds of livestock-filled acres that stretched all the way to Cedar Street, 35 acres in a straight line.

  •     Those familiar with Linda Stein’s artwork might be surprised to find needles, thread, and fabrics lying around her TriBeCa and Northwest Woods studios. Ms. Stein, whose earlier works were often composed of such materials as driftwood, drawer knobs, and engraving plates, is now making what she calls “bullyproof” vests.
        On the one hand, the predominantly cotton vests stand in contrast to her earlier works; on the other, the transition is all too natural.

  •     Twenty-four venerable houses and a windmill would be designated as “timber-frame landmarks” and added to East Hampton Village’s historic preservation program, according to a plan presented to the village board on Oct. 4. All the proposed landmarks, scattered through the village, were built between 1700 and 1850.

  • Three potentially controversial solutions for the tricky Main Street and Buell Lane intersection presented.
  •     The East Hampton Village Design Review Board unanimously approved a plan last Thursday for a fence at 9 Fresno Place, proposed by MG Muscle Classics. Bill Kelly, representing the applicants, told the board they have been finding a lot of bottles and cans on the property, and have had problems “with people from neighboring establishments using the driveway as a turnaround area and loitering in the front yard.”
