In the world of slightly surprising/ironic news, ultra-conservative television host Bill O’Reilly has decided to make the most hipster/boho village on the East End his home.
Town & Country real estate announced this week that the political commentator has purchased an oceanfront property in Montauk for close to $8 million. The land had included a 1940s-era, 600-square-foot summer cottage, which has already been torn down, as well as a few other small structures. The former Abbey property sits on a bluff overlooking the ocean.
A few of his neighbors include Paul Simon, Julian Schnabel and Jann Wenner–all quite liberal. Boy, oh, boy I’d love to be in the room if they all came to a neighborhood block party.
