The Hampton's suck. Most of those people are so boring that you just want to jump in the pool and get away from them. Go to Brooklyn for a good deal and interesting people.

If the Lobster came out of Long Island Sound I would recommend not eating them.

As a young woman I spent many summers in Remsenburg and Southampton. I was NOT rich- and, those I knew that WERE very rich, were not fools. They spent normal,average - and lived perhaps a little better- some, actually were CHEAP-- So, I do not know who these new rich fools are, but they are not TRUE HAMPTONITES---

These people are nouveau riche, and will spend $100 a pound for lobster to salad not to eat lobster salad, but to eat $100 a pound lobster salad.

You know who gets rich in the market today? Those who sell you the stock.

Ah, the George Bush economy. The proletariat can not fill their gas tanks, but the pecunious can take whatever money they have acquired from exporting jobs to India and China and waste it on lobster salad. Keep voting against your own economic self-interest, people. It is going so well.

Those people who live that lifestyle are from New York City or somewhere else. They and their fancy stores and houses do not represent the true locals.
The people who come out for the summer with their fancy cars and attitude have destroyed a once pristine and relaxing area all Long Islanders used to know.
Most people (working people) I know are leaving the area now because of these fancy people who go out there every summer with their million dollar homes.
In ten years the only people living in the Hampton are the very rich and the very poor. Most average people who live(d) in the area are moving down south or upstate.
Its a shame that area is what it is now!

These Hamptons articles are pure entertainment rather than news. Like celebrity coverage, Newsday has found that people like to read/ click on such stories.

We need write-ups on rich people like this, so we can bash them. But, I would not take it very seriously.

and these conspicuous consumers love reading this confirmation of their excessive spending. this type would be ecstatic to have their name mentioned in one of these stories as another status symbol. Gotta pity them-the bimmer and beach house makes them seem like just another poor schnook out here. this kinda reminds me of louis xiv france.

Sucks that us locals cannot go to a restaurant and just have a salad and entree nowadays. Everything is A LA CART. 12.00 for a cesar salad that you can buy the kit at king kullen for $3.00

These businesses will cry in the winter when all the cityits go home!

BRING BACK THE LOCALS!

In 10 years it will be the uber wealthy and the ones who serve them (oh, and the illegal day laborers will still be in front of 7-11 in Southampton too)

A few things - if you want cheap, good food, create it. Eat at home. It is healthier, for the most part. And take pride in creating cheap, nutritious dishes that reflect your tastes.

What are you paying for when you buy $1200 worth of lobster? The fact that it is in the Hamptons, mostly.

Secondly, Long Islanders should accommodate the hedge funders. Long Island's economy is still not great, and it need every $ it can get. If we don't sell to them, they'll go to Martha's Vineyard or the like.

If you want a nice house, move to Patchogue or Riverhead. Lots of houses, nice and cheap.

Equality sucks, and I hate having to see it as much as the next person, but the alternative is economic hardship, which is worse.

the only people willing to pay these prices are the tourists,the locals know how prices are inflated to maximise profits during the short summer season.The shopowners basically ignore the locals this time of year

There is a lot of white trash in the Hamptons. The only difference is they escape from the city on the weekends and like to waste money

A hundred bucks for a pound of lobster salad? Where on earth do these lobsters come from? John's Farms in Plainview has live ones for $4.99 a pound.
