bitter local comment of the day

The conversation about the new Southampton Center continued. One "bitter local" said, "No, I don't hate the summer people, just tolerate them for 10 weeks. Yes, I love their money, and will sell, service and rent out everything I can just to make it off them. The Hamptons Film Festival has nothing to do with the summer people - they come in on beautiful fall weekends just after we recovered from the summer people, and take away our local movie theaters for 4 days. They used to do free screenings for locals on the Monday after, but stopped that. They could care less about our people, our town, our values. This is just another Aspen or Miami for them to brand their festival."
