  • A beautiful waterfront house on a bluff in Springs may be an unlikely place for a museum, but suspend your disbelief. This is no archive of ancient artifacts nor a paean to priceless paintings. No, this is the Museum of Low Taste, or MOLT, a good-humored and astonishingly expansive assemblage of midcentury kitsch — ceramic figurines, lazy susans, and commemorative items, among other things — a proud and highly concentrated collection that numbers in the thousands.
  • Nearly 40 local musicians and owners of music venues told the East Hampton Town Board Thursday that proposed amendments to the town code governing music entertainment permits are draconian and mean-spirited, but Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc said many of their concerns "may not be founded."
  • The Venerable Tenzin Yignyen, a Buddhist monk and professor, has returned to the Ross School in East Hampton for a weeklong visit to share the message of compassion.
  • Musicians and owners of venues that host live music fear that proposed changes to East Hampton Town Code could silence them and stifle performance opportunities, and the revenue that comes with them.
  • The South Fork Peak Savers Program, which encourages energy efficiency through reduced consumption, is offering a new program that would reduce peak electricity demand and save money, the East Hampton Town Board was told on Tuesday.
  • A 2018 jury trial and verdict concluding that the Town of East Hampton was responsible for erosion west of the jetties at Montauk Harbor was overturned on Friday, when a judge granted the town's motion to dismiss the lawsuit, overruling the $356,000 in damages awarded to seven property owners.
  • Perhaps the greatest lesson, for students of all ages, is that one person really can make a difference.
  • Some Montauk residents acknowledged positive recommendations in the ongoing hamlet study, while the town board agreed that a planned retreat and relocation of oceanfront structures requires further study.
  • The East Hampton Town Board backtracked on a settlement the town reached in January with Marc Rowan, the billionaire owner of Duryea’s Lobster Deck in Montauk, following an outcry from residents.
  • Nothing less than “an incredible impact” on iconic oceanfront residences is at stake in a hearing before the East Hampton Village Zoning Board of Appeals, board members were told as they considered an application for a third time on Friday. But a largely skeptical board called that characterization extreme, and with an environmental report from a consultant to the village still pending, the application will be considered for a fourth time next month.
