Friday is the one day for residents of East Hampton Town who live outside village boundaries to get a nonresident 2023 East Hampton Village beach permit before the price rises from $500 to $750, but there's a catch: They have to show up in person at the Emergency Services Building between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. with the right documentation.

"We want to make sure that town residents have an opportunity to access village beaches before our summer visitors have a chance to buy them online starting in February," Mayor Jerry Larsen said in an advertisement in last week's Star. 

The permits allow parking at Georgica, Main, Egypt, and Two Mile Hollow Beaches. 

To get them, people must take along completed permit applications, available at, photocopies of their vehicle registrations, and proof of residence in East Hampton Town in the form of town tax bills, valid leases, or three utility bills with their East Hampton Town address. The village will accept checks for the permits. Those not here Friday can still fill out the application and have someone else go in person with copies of the required documents to get the permit.

In case of snow, the in-person permit sale will happen on Monday.

Those not in town this week can still attempt to buy a nonresident permit online at the new 2023 rate of $750. Online permit sales will begin on Wednesday at 9 a.m. 

Roughly 1,500 nonresident permits of the 3,100 to be offered this year will be available for sale Friday. The remainder will be sold online. 

Last year, nonresident permits were available only online. They sold out in less than a day.
