Further signs of the real estate recovery: last summer, the mega-mansion known as The Sandcastle—built by builder Joe Farrell in a Bridgehampton field—rented for a paltry $30,357 a day. Now, that piddling sum won't even get you past the 20th hour of the day, given the news from Newsday blog Real LI that the place is set to rent for two weeks in July for $500,000—or $35,714 per day, a Hamptons record. Joe Farrell, you're a mad genius, and God knows we love you for it.
