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.
"Hipster airlines flight 714 now boarding."
"Once again, selective enforcement of the law. It's illegal to rent this house without a valid Rental Permit, which Joe Farrell does not have. When will Code Enforcement properly enforce the law?"
"That is one of the fugliest, confused houses I have ever been inside of. It's really two houses in one. The original house is overtraditional, and the new part is garishly mediterranean. I remember when it was $25mm 8 years ago. It's worth whatever 5.5 acres of vacant land in wainscott SOH is worth, less the demolition costs. Throw that thing in a dumpster and start over."
"I had a summer share in this house about 10 years ago. The house is old and run down, but the property is amazing. The house has a squash court in it. Pretty cool."
"That's really a shame. Beautiful home. Maybe a good friend that has some big cash can help Ben out. Rumour is bogus Madoff investments were partially responsible..."
