Hamptons News Around town…six dollar drinks…
Hey there Hamptonites…Sorry for the delay, always so much happening in the Hamptons..
Page 63 has filed against the village of Sag Harbor. Gerard Wawryk, the longtime owner of the restaurant,died on April 12, a week after suffering a stroke. The surviving partner Joe Traina, Page at 63 Main, has been disputing with the Village of Sag Harbor for more than a year over its efforts to renovate and expand the business.
The suit, filed in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York on Wednesday, April 29, seeks $18.5 million from the village plus another $4 million in punitive damages from Mayor Brian Gilbride and the village’s former building inspector, Tim Platt, over what it charges was a systematic effort on the village’s part to block and delay its expansion efforts in part by removing documents from the Building Department’s file.
