    It's an adjacent property owner being preemptive.... if only it abutted Chimney Mansion's property line.

    However, the question arises: If you could obtain a foot wide sliver of land directly next door to Wiggy and The Whorse, what would you do with it?

    I don't begrudge the rich anything, but some assholes really do have too much money on their hands.

    If you have no access to the beach you don't really have a choice. The guy that wouldn't allow a right of passage to his neighbor is the asshole here. I've seen my neighbor jump my fence to get back lost balls and stuff, I'd rather he do that then ask me to go out and get it for him.

    You always have access to the beach, but he wanted more convenient access.

    If I own a 20+ millioin dollar estate on the water, I expect to be able to walk out the back to it. I'm guessing there must be another house between him and the water though otherwise why wouldn't he just walk out the back?

    On a side note i wouldn't have bought the place without a right of way in the first place. That was just stupid on his part.

    Its shocking to hear that back in the "golden era" of the Stern show, Howard would actually show up to parties thrown by employees. There's no fucking way Hampton's Howie would even consider for a hot minute doing anything like that (unless George Clooney, Kimmel and Jennifer Aniston were confirmed RSVP'd).

    Here is an image of the land where this narrow property is but I can't tell exactly where it runs from.
