Real Estate News — Hit Your Hallelujah

 

It’s impossible to resist posting this catchy song and video, given the news this past week that music man extraordinaire Mark Ronson (who has produced “Uptown Funk” with Bruno Mars and many other huge hits, including all those amazing Amy Winehouse songs on “Back to Black”) has sold his super chill Amagansett beach house. The New York Post broke the news, and then lots of outlets followed. I’m partial to the latest, just posted on 27 East. Thanks Tom Clavin for that awesome kicker!

Other East End real estate dealings that have caught my eye of late include a house by Guggenheim kiosk architect Andre Kikoski with a glass pool, featured here on Curbed (amazing!!!!), and the opportunity to rent a gorgeous North Sea home that just happened to be featured heavily on everyone’s favorite family show on E. Here’s the NY Observer story on the Hamptons house of Kardashian.

So glad I went to Southampton’s 375th Anniversary Founders Day Celebration at Conscience Point in North Sea yesterday.

Of course it was great to run into so many friends, but more important was the message of remembrance and how we must respect our true history. The all-day family event included programs in marine biology and aquaculture, food, and plenty of socializing, but it was the acknowledgement of  North Sea’s Native American past that really struck a chord. The final program of the day, a Shinnecock tribe historical reenactment of the  the 1640 landing of English pioneers won’t soon be forgotten.

For those who missed it, here’s a short video:
