News broke just last week that American Express was renting out Grey Gardens for the summer to host events, but they’re getting some pushback from East Hampton Town, reports Page Six.

The credit card company received a cease-and-desist last week when they learned of a Jennifer Fisher jewelry sale to be hosted at the residence. Hosting such an event at the property directly violates a zoning code which states that residential districts cannot be used for commercial purposes.

So it seems like the company renting the property is A-OK—it’s just the events that are going to give them some problems.

Designed in 1897 by Joseph Greenleaf Thorpe, the 6,652-square-foot home sits on almost 2 acres of land, and is equipped with nine bedrooms, seven-and a-half bathrooms, a swimming pool, a tennis court, and apparently a lot of ghosts.

It is located at 3 West End Road in East Hampton, near Georgica beach. The estate is currently owned by Sally Quinn.
