Also has a lot of German, Irish, Scotch, English, Polish, Italian and Latin character. So what? This is a story for who? I guess Jewish people. The Hamptons are what they are and it's character changes regularly. Everyone is welcome here as long as they behave civilly. Been to Montauk lately?

Good observation Walter. Nothing like a one sided statement labeled as "Report" to be considered news worthy true. Perhaps when there are more potential investors in other minority groups there will be more kudos stories written for them.
