    Well, not just King of All Gunk, but all super rich folks that travel to the Hampton's via aircraft. A federal judge overruled flight restrictions placed by one of the airports out there......

    Judge Limits Restrictions on Flights to East Hampton

    By STEPHANIE CLIFFORDJUNE 26, 2015

    On Friday, the one percent got a boost when a federal judge, Joanna L. Seybert, granted a preliminary injunction that would allow much of the heavy air traffic to East Hampton Airport to continue through this summer despite an effort to limit it.

    In April, the East Hampton town board passed resolutions restricting what it defines as noisy aircraft, including almost all helicopters and many jets, to two uses a week, or one takeoff and one landing, during the summer, a move that would hobble the charter services that operate like taxis for the rich. The board also prohibited all flights between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., and noisy flights between 8 p.m. and 9 a.m

    That group argued that the aircraft help the town by paying takeoff and landing fees, and that small businesses would suffer if wealthy weekenders could no longer fly in. Judge Seybert, of Federal District Court in Central Islip, ruled that the group had demonstrated its members would suffer irreparable harm to their businesses without the injunction on the flights-per-week restriction.

    Jane Gill, a real-estate broker who lives in Sagaponack, near the airport, was girding on Friday for another summer weekend streaked with noise as she hurried to meet a client. “It’s so loud and so low that my house actually shakes,” she said. On Thursdays, when the weekend travelers start coming in, she said, she makes sure to skip dinner at home because of the noise.

    The disruption, she said, lasts all weekend. Last Friday, she spent the afternoon with a friend who was renting a $45 million house on Georgica Pond, and they counted about 20 helicopters in the span of an hour or two. “Who’s going to buy that property for $45 million if they sat there on a summer day, a Friday, and listened to that?” Ms. Gill said.

    Reminds me of this quote by a Palo Alto CA peasant a few years ago:
