As summer gets closer and closer, we're beginning to learn more details about the future of the Surf Lodge, and today we've gotten our biggest news yet.
Surf Lodge, Montauk's best or bane (depending on who you ask), is apparently up for sale. The owners are ditching the property, which accrued 687 violations last summer and is in need of a $140,000 septic system repair. Owners Steven Kamali, Jamie Mulholland, Jayma Cardoso and Robert McKinley denied the story to the New York Post, promising Surf Lodge would be open for the summer and demurring that the corporation was not "actively pursuing a buyer."
No doubt the company is scrambling to address the news, which was inadvertently leaked in the midst of a contentious lawsuit between the hotspot and the town. News of the sale came out during a closed-door conference with a town judge, who repeated in open court the owners' plans to close down parent company Edgemere Montauk and sell Surf Lodge. Although Colin Astarita, the corporation's attorney objected, the information stayed on the record. Astarita has since been replaced by East Hampton lawyer Thomas Horn. Reports indicate that Surf Lodge is trying to delay the trial, which Town attorneys hope will conclude before the summer season begins. Pre-trial motions have been set for April 16th. More»
I recently read an article that noted the surprising number of people fishing at Echo Park Lake in the morning. And then I called my therapist. Do you have any idea what kind of abhorrences lie hidden in that swamp which hosted an aggressive fatal fish herpes outbreak not too long ago? Somebody call a priest because we may soon find out now that it's in the process of being drained for a two-year cleanup. As Curbed pointed out, locals are already taking bets on how many dead bodies they find once it's emptied. More»

After all the confusion and debate as to the appropriate nomenclature for what is commonly referred to as the "eastside" of L.A., as in Silver Lake, Echo Park, Loz Feliz, and East Hollywood, Curbed has had enough and wants to settle on a new name that we can all use moving forward. More»

Last night, the Cooper Square Hotel Penthouse was the site of the joint holiday party of its friendly neighbors: Curbed, Hard Candy Shell, Foursquare, (who all share an office at 36 Cooper Square) and Brew Media Relations. Let's take a look at the folks that made it out to toast the techies that took over the Village Voice building shall we? More»

Last night, while we were at dinner at Lure (a Lockhart Steele fav), the man himself was helping his site, Curbed.com host party celebrating real estate. The 565-unit Williamsburg waterfront development of the Kent Street sales offices of The Edge, their latest site advertiser, was lacking on the sushi, but had enough drinks to keep the developers happy. Because what better time can you think of to host a party CELEBRATING real estate in this city? Even DBTH's Scott Solish shockingly left Bea for a night to join in on the fun, and wearing on his best dress shirt to boot! I can't believe I missed out on this one. Our favorite pick of their photos below... More»
