Town board considers historic district for downtown Bridgehampton

November 08, 2017 12:46PM

Southampton Supervisor Jay Schneiderman wants downtown Bridgehampton to be listed on New York’s State Register of Historic Places, and the town board is considering the request. If added to the register, buildings in the area would face some restrictions on renovations and additions, but Schneiderman told 27 East that the hamlet could lose its “historic touch” without protection. Parts of Quogue, Sag Harbor, Sagaponack and Southampton villages are already designated as historic districts. [27 East]
