  • WATCH: Hamptons Restaurateur Destroys Table Favored by Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein - With Sledgehammer, Axe, and FIRE

    Some people might burn a little sage to clear out bad vibes. Southampton restaurant owner Zach Erdem busts out a sledgehammer, axe, and giant bottle of lighter fluid. Erdem, the owner of 75 Main in Southampton, New York, was troubled by the lingering “bad energy” at a VIP table at his establishment that had been frequented by not one, but two, famous convicted creeps: Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein. The table, a high-top designed to seat six, was such a favorite dining spot for Epstein that he once paid another party’s $1,500 bill just to get them to clear out....

    While President Donald Trump attended big-money fundraisers for the Republican Party and his 2020 re-election campaign at mansions in Southampton and Bridgehampton on Friday, many of his East End supporters are eschewing the spotlight — especially after last week’s calls for boycotts of billionaire Stephen Ross’s fitness chains SoulCycle and Equinox because he hosted the president. “We are all in the closet,” said a boutique owner in Southampton who fears reprisals from his customers — most of them moneyed Democrats — if he speaks openly about his allegiance to Trump. “It’s like you have this disease and people want to...

    Stormy Daniels as the Virgin Mary? “Virgin,” a show of photographs by Nika Nesgoda, opens Thursday at the Spur, the Southampton co-working space and social club. Inspired by Caravaggio, who used a prostitute model for “Death of the Virgin” in 1606, Nesgoda had adult-film actresses Stormy, Tera Patrick (who has since retired from the industry) and other porn stars pose as the Virgin Mother in 2002. “Stormy doesn’t care what other people think of her. She’s a free spirit,” Nesgoda told The Post. “My show’s a playful look at art history. Pornography is art that we deem excessive in a...

    A braided head of hair found buried beneath a medieval abbey in England has given up some of its secrets, thanks to a scientist's curiosity about the relic, which he first saw when he was a schoolboy. Jamie Cameron, an archaeological research assistant at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, first visited Romsey Abbey, near the city of Southampton, on a school field trip when he was 7 years old. Cameron said he became curious about the abbey's display of a brightly colored and braided head of hair, which had been found in a lead casket buried beneath...

    Shocking New Theory! The Titanic was sunk by a German submarine, not an iceberg, stunning new evidence reveals. "The one thing people think they know about the Titanic is that she struck an iceberg," says David Roberts, an historian with the Merseyside Maritime Museum in England. "However, based on survivor testimony, we can't necessarily make that assumption. In fact, when we look at the evidence, the only thing we can take for granted is that the Titanic skimmed past the iceberg, barely making contact with it. "Subprofiler images of the Titanic's hull have now proven that the damage she sustained...

    A Long Island federal jury rewarded Nancy Genovese, 58, a mother of three, $1.12 million in compensatory damages after being arrested in 2009 for attempting to photograph a helicopter at a Air National Guard base in the Hamptons. Genovese intended to use the photo on a “Support the Troops” website; she was arrested for trespass and insulted as a "Teabagger." From The New York Post: Southhampton cops searched her and found a legally owned rifle that she was transporting from a nearby rifle range. She contends a deputy sheriff arrived on the scene later and said to her, “I bet...

    Choudary: Refuses to discuss his dissolute youth At 39, Anjem Choudary should be a symbol of success for his peers. Born into the working-class family of a market trader in Welling on the outskirts of London, he has risen - thanks to the opportunities offered by the British education system - to become a qualified lawyer. But it is unlikely his old school will be inviting him to be guest speaker on prize-giving day. Their former pupil is not famous for his elegant oratory in court. Instead, the articulate Mr Choudary preaches hatred and murder in the streets of Britain...

    This case is a frightening example of what can happen when a photographer encounters ignorant bullies with badges. According to the complaint filed in Federal Court, Nancy Genovese, a mother of three, was driving home on County Road 31 past Gabreski Airport in Suffolk County. Gabreski Airport displays a decorative helicopter shell by the roadway to the public, which is visible to all who pass by. Nancy Genovese stopped her car on the side of the road across the street from the airport in an area that is open and accessible to the public, and crossed over the road to...

    A council has apologised to a woman who was fined £60 after workmen painted a disabled bay around her car. When Shirley Hatcher, 67, parked her car in North Road, Southampton, Hampshire, there were no parking restrictions in place. Mrs Hatcher, of Priory Road, said: "I had just gone to the hairdressers and when I returned there was this disabled bay and the £60 fine." A spokeswoman for Southampton City Council has apologised for the error. Mrs Hatcher said: "I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. "My car was covered in polka dots from the paint they had...

    OXFORD ARCHAEOLOGY UNEARTHS SAXON SETTLEMENT IN SOUTHAMPTON by Roz Tappenden 24/03/2006 Excavated 19th century cellar. © Oxford Archaeology An archaeological dig in Southampton’s medieval city centre has unearthed Saxon structural remains and a WWII pharmacy. Archaeologists were called in last November to investigate the 0.5-hectare site in the centre of bustling Southampton after an evaluation by the City Council. The plot, between the city’s High Street and French Street has been earmarked for redevelopment, but the discovery of medieval vaults and structural remains dating from the late Saxon period prompted developers, Linden Homes, to delay building work while investigations take...

    A massive fire has destroyed a leading computer science research facility at the University of Southampton. Gas canisters exploded inside the Mountbatten building on Salisbury Road, Highfield, which was engulfed by a 100ft plume of smoke on Sunday morning. No-one was hurt, but the building, housing valuable equipment for making chips and optic fibres, was destroyed. A spokesman said some of the world's most advanced research was carried out there and its loss was devastating. The laboratory, part of the school of Electronics and Computer Science, was completely destroyed, and a nearby office building was damaged. John Lauwerys, secretary...

    LONDON, February 4 (IslamOnline & News Agencies) - As several activists of the Green Peace organization chained themselves Tuesday, February 4, to tanks in the southern British city of Southampton, protesting the looming U.S.-led war on Iraq, the British army received orders to be on standby for a forthcoming invasion of Iraq. The demonstrators went to a military harbor in the city and chained themselves to the tanks in a bid to impede the transit of U.K. weaponry to the Gulf, BBC news online reported. "It is worth taking such a risk if we are to succeed in heading off...

    Greenpeace protesters have boarded a military supply ship in an anti-war protest. Five campaigners from the conservation group have managed to get aboard the MV Lyra while at anchor in the Solent off Southampton.

The Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior is also at the scene. The Lyra is carrying military vehicles on its decks for possible deployment to Iraq but Greenpeace said they did not...

    Malachi cannot join his friends at his local school A boy has been refused a place in a school - not because he lives too far away but because he lives too high up. Four-year-old Malachi Walker lives only 300 metres from Weston Shore Infant School in Southampton. However, the council says because Malachi lives on the 13th floor his front door is too far away from the school. The decision, which his mum describes as ludicrous, means he must now walk to a school more than half-an-hour away. "It's just silly," says his mother His mother, Julie said: "I...
