Live inside a windmill in Montauk for $1.9M

By Michelle Cohen, Thu, May 17, 2018

Property in Montauk–where billionaires live in trailer parks–just isn’t like other places. For example, this windmill house was built in 1928 by Arthur W. B. Wood, an architect who was enamored of–you guessed it–windmills. Though the windmill that’s part of the six-bedroom home at 162 Fairview Avenue isn’t a real, functional windmill, it is the only windmill house in Montauk. And it’s currently on the market for $1.9 million.

L train, nyc subway, mta

The latest fear to raise its ugly head in what will admittedly be a major inconvenience–that is, the 15-month shutdown of the L line starting in April of 2019–is the very limited number of trains that will be able to pick up the slack heading across the Williamsburg bridge. The topic surfaced at last night’s Town Hall meeting, when, according to the Village Voice, a concerned citizen by the name of Sunny Ng voiced his concerns about how many more trains could fit on the bridge.

Can of worms: Open!
