This idyllic waterfront compound at 74-80 Cedar Lane in the secluded Southampton hamlet of Remsenburg was once a 19th-century hunting lodge. In far more recent days, complete restoration and renovation have bestowed this charming property–it’s currently the hamlet’s most expensive listing at $17,500,000–with some top-tier modern additions like an elevator, a guest house, a pool and tennis court, a porte-cochere and a five-car garage with hydraulic lifts, a boathouse, a fitness room, and a wine cellar. And in case you forget the laid-back Hamptons vibe, there’s even an old-fashioned windmill on the property.

This week marked the beginning of hurricane season and experts predict storms will be worse than usual, especially following President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord on Thursday. To better inform New Yorkers about the risks of rising sea level and storm surges, the Waterfront Alliance, a nonprofit that works to protect waterfronts, released a Harbor Scorecard, as reported by the Brooklyn Eagle. The interactive scorecard lets users view each neighborhood by its waterfront safety and coastal resiliency. The group found that more than 400,000 New Yorkers face a 50 percent risk of a major flood by 2060.

Once upon a time there was a scrappy little warehouse district in Brooklyn that birthed some of the largest industrial firms in the nation: Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Astral Oil (later Standard Oil), Brooklyn Flint Glass (later Corning Ware) and the Havemeyer and Elder sugar refinery (later Amstar and Domino), to name a few. And along the waterfront, among the docks, shipyards, mills and refineries, breweries such as Schaefer, Rheingold and Schlitz dotted the landscape.
While many of the factories still stand, most have been converted to luxury residential buildings, with Northside Piers being the very first residential development at the waterfront of Williamsburg.
Toll Brothers’s full-service condominium takes full advantage of its location, offering residents a 400-foot-long recreation pier and stunning views of the New York City skyline. And this rare-to-the-market Two Northside Piers 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom duplex penthouse at 47 North 4th Street, with two large balconies, is just as dazzling.
Right this way to see the many sides of this exquisite penthouse….
