Well, that was fast. Barely a week after news broke that American Express was leasing Grey Gardens for the summer, the credit card company got the boot from village officials. East Hampton’s zoning code does not allow private residences to be used for commercial purposes, a village administrator told the New York Post. Officials first heard of the problem from a newspaper ad for AmEx’s first event at the famed estate owned by Washington Post reporter Sally Quinn. [NYP]
