The quaint Montauk institution known as Duryea's Lobster Deck has hit the market for $5.9 million. The latest contender to enter the Montauk real estate ring comes with 8 acres of land (6 of which are underwater), one iconic 1,400-square-foot lobster deck, and enough auxiliary buildings to run a successful wholesale lobster operation.
But enough of the nitty gritty; let's crack this listing open and get to the real meat. Duryea's is a locals' favorite that has been celebrated by East End chefs, and most recently, Local Knit tees. And better yet, Duryea's has been a part of Montauk's local economy well before the glitterati arrived. According to its website, Duryea's traces its history back to 1930s, when one Perry Duryea Sr. purchased a fish supply business from the man after which Tuthill Road was named. Hopefully all that goodwill has been factored into the asking price!
