East Hampton refuses to let “Law & Order” star off the hook for illegal treehouse

There shall be law and order when it comes to zoning in East Hampton — even for “Law & Order” star Mariska Hargitay. The East Hampton Village Zoning Board of Appeals denied Hargitay a variance that would have allowed her to keep, on behalf of her son, a treehouse, swing set, and basketball hoop that exceed her neighbor’s property line, according to the New York Post.
Not even a letter from 10-year-old August himself swayed the board. “I promise to play basketball really, really, really quietly,” the letter read. Tough luck, Olivia Benson. [Page Six]
