Grey Gardens Can Be Yours After All!



The exterior of Grey Gardens.East Hampton’s most storied estate is continuing to make headlines. Grey Gardens—which hit the market in February—recently found a summer renter in American Express, who intended to use it to host seasonal events. However, it appears the company will not be able to follow through with their plan. In anticipation of the first scheduled event, village officials in the town of East Hampton sent American Express a cease-and-desist letter citing the town’s zoning, which prohibits residences from being used for commercial purposes.

Unable to use the house for events, it remains to be seen what American Express will do with their new summer home.

Village administrator Rebecca Hansen told Page Six that the town will continue to monitor the property for zoning violations throughout the summer and take further legal action if necessary.
