Before we make with this week's coverage of all things Hamptons, let's take a look back at the week that was. As usual, Curbed readers weren't exactly shy when it came to voicing their opinions. Here's just a sampling of what they had to say.
"how bout just dealing with the issue at hand, suddenly indian wells, traditionally a family beach, is inundated with the fallout from friday nights late night party crowd. OK not a big deal, post the "no open alcohol' sign at Indian wells, (like the town code allows) and let law enforcement officers police those that mis-behave - no big deal. Mom and pop can still go down and watch the sunset with their glass of merlot and everyone is back to normal - gee that was tough !!!"
"This stuff is like weak Kool Aid - have had it at way too many summer parties and never understood why people think this is true Rose - it's nowhere close."
"Why is Montauk the dumping ground for this stuff? Town Board defenders of "business is business" should have loudspeakers at their homes so they can hear the din themselves. The noise from the Montauk Beach Club last Saturday was horrendous."
"Why so afraid to use the word teardown? There's an argument to be made that about 20% of all the homes sold in the U.S. are "value in the land" opportunities - or teardowns. Just look around - they are everywhere, high-end, low-end and in between."
"I'm going to avoid hamptons.curbed.com, for suggesting people boycott a local business like The Golden Pear. Come on Paul, not fair!"
