  • 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.
  • Two months after Deepwater Wind offered the East Hampton Town Board a community-benefits package in exchange for the easements it will need to land a cable from its proposed South Fork Wind Farm and bury it along a route to a Long Island Power Authority substation in East Hampton, the town trustees offered a counterproposal that seeks significantly more.
  • An application from Ron Perelman, the billionaire investor, to legalize the construction and alteration of multiple structures at the Creeks, his 58-acre estate on Georgica Pond, without building permits and in violation of the village code inched toward resolution on Friday at a meeting of the East Hampton Village Zoning Board of Appeals.
  • Drawings and specific details for the construction of a new senior citizens center were revealed at an East Hampton Town Board work session on Tuesday by Drazen Cackovic of the DCAK-MSA architecture and engineering firm.
  • With a pledge to revitalize his party and end single-party rule, Amos Goodman was elected chairman of the East Hampton Town Republican Committee on Feb. 7.
  • In “All the Things I Lost in the Flood: Essays on Pictures, Language and Code,” Laurie Anderson, the musician and visual and performance artist, offers a career retrospective showcasing her expansive and varied oeuvre.
  • The East Hampton Town Board approved a management and stewardship plan for properties acquired with the community preservation fund at its meeting last Thursday, a plan that includes an estimated $850,000 for the restoration of studios on Neck Path in Springs.
  • Consultants engaged by the town board to conduct studies and make recommendations for the commercial districts of Wainscott, East Hampton, Springs, Amagansett, and the downtown and harbor areas of Montauk proposed dramatic changes for Montauk, including a coastal retreat in the face of sea level rise.
  • Maureen’s Haven, a provider of shelter and support services for the homeless, has ceased operation in East Hampton, though, its officials hope, only temporarily.
  • One cold winter’s night about 26 years ago, two friends and I shivered on West Third Street, craning our necks and peering in the large window of the Blue Note Jazz Club, straining for a glimpse of Ray Charles. We were barely employed musicians then, sharing a small apartment in Hoboken and busking in the subway when times were especially tough (they usually were).
