Well gee, myriad might be stretching it a bit.
Jim Colligan, one of the councilmen behind the law — who lives in the posh Silver Beach neighborhood of seven-figure homes — was quoted as saying
“We don’t want 16 people staying in a three-bedroom home.”
He should have stopped there. Instead, the Post article says, he “mocked those who need to rent their homes to make ends meet by emailing a cartoon that ‘depicted a mobile short term rental bungalow on a Beverly Hillbilly style truck’ last year, court papers say.”
Court papers. But of course.
“We don’t want to be Montauk,” he told the Post.
Well, we talked to Montauk. They said they don’t want to be Shelter Island.
Going green — Sara and Bernie Gewirz just finished a nice piece of landscaping near their summer home.
And pretty much everybody is going to be traipsing on it.
The Gewirzes are among the major donors to a new conservation project of the Aquidneck Island Land Trust.
The Gewirz Trail is part of what used to be Spruce Acres, a 23-acre Christmas tree farm straddling the border of Middletown and Portsmouth, Rhode Island, two of the three towns comprising Aquidneck Island. (Newport, where the Gewirzes have a summer home, is the third.)
Once opened, the public will be able to traverse the 1.5-mile trail, which loops between the two towns.
When asked about the project, Bernie said “I promise I won’t yell ‘Hey, get off my lawn!’ to anybody.”
OK, he didn’t really say that.
Travelogue — Some pretty nice perks come with being the co-owners of the Findlay Galleries, if the itinerary of Jimmy Borynack and Adolfo Zaralegui is any indication.
After a relaxing week as Barbara
San Damian’s houseguests in Spain — where they spied Patrick Park and his bride, Milly, spending part of their delayed honeymoon at the Marbella Club — the duo are “now in Croatia cruising the Dalmatian Coast with our artist Zvonimir Mihanovic,” Jimmy writes. “Then it’s off to Paris, Rome and London, all for work.”
Well, not all work: The Duke and Duchess of Marlborough are hosting a lunch for them at Blenheim.
Bernie and Sara Gewirz are opening a 1.5-mile trail near their summer home to the public.
