Another thing about the East End that I also find puzzling is the name of some of the streets out here. I mean it's the Hamptons! Shouldn't all the streets have beautiful and idyllic names? Well that's my point. If you're a home owner on one of these following streets, I suggest you get together with your neighbors and push for a name change. Not only might it help improve property values, it might also look a lot better on your next holiday card's return address. In no particular order by the way here are some streets that could benefit from a name change.*
|Prime location... questionable name!|
Widow Gavits Road -Sag Harbor- OMG... really? So sad. How about we call it, "New Chapter Lane." I mean no disrespect to Mr. Gavits but don't you think it's time she moves on?
|You named a street after him?|
Mount Misery - Sag Harbor - Put on the Barry Manilow albums and get me a razor blade! It's actually a really nice street and close to Sag Harbor Village But oh that name!! So what to do? Let's rename it Fallon Way... after Jimmy Fallon! My favorite Hamptons celebrity who seems to always be happy and friendly to everyone! OK, how do we start this petition!?
Dead Trail - Southampton - It's located right off of Bridies path.... so why not call it Groomies path? Everyone loves a bride and groom. It's a good location and surrounded by trees but what a bummer of a name. Although it's a perfect location during Halloween! Insert scary laugh here!
*not sure if it will really help values but hopefully you got a good chuckle.
