Reader Comments, We're In The Home Stretch Edition

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.

TORY BURCH SELLS FOR A HUGE LOSS

"Hopefully she's making better decisions in her fashion line than with her other investments. How many scarfs, handbags, dresses and shoes does she have to sell to make up from that $11.5M loss?"

IT'S NOT ALL BAD

"What a silly, frivolous thing to focus on. When I look out on the crowd at the Surf Lodge on any given Sat. afternoon, as much as I see designer T-shirts and fedoras (yes, cringe) I see a lot of smiling faces and people having a good time. So, really, who are the winners and losers here?"
THE DISCO ERA

"Ewwww. It's like, everything stopped in 1974 and remains frozen in time. You can just smell the mildew in these pictures."

MORE GREEK?

"OK, I realize that this was a Greek place originally, but this summer alone, we have had 3 new Greek/Mediterranean places open not to mention the existing ones. Now I love Greek food don't me wrong, but how about a little variety?"

IT'S GOT POTENTIAL

"House looks OK to me. The broker must be mentally impaired, though. Just pick everything up and throw it in a dumpster and what you're left with ain't bad."

OVERPRICED? IN THE HAMPTONS?!

"The Granny Chic furnishings do not help "paint the picture" - it will take a visionary to buy it just for the property (for half the asking price) and simply rebuild. Who wants an 80 year old house with only 2 Bedrooms and 2 bathrooms!"
