Plans for Billy Joel’s Sag Harbor home strike a chord with town board

May 09, 2018 01:57PM

The piano man wants to join his two homes that sit across the street from each other. Billy Joel’s initial proposals included lifting and rotating one of the homes, but that was nixed by the Sag Harbor Village Board of Historic Preservation and Architectural Review. Now, Joel hopes to build a two-story addition to connect the two, but plans to place it back farther from the street, which the board took a shine to. Early discussions seemed positive and the entertainer still hopes to formally submit plans by June. [27East]
