PHOTOS: Sandy Topples Lauder Cottage

After the storm, some photos were snapped of the destruction in Wainscott.

A cottage belonging to billionaire Ron Lauder's daughter was completely destroyed as Sandy battered the South Fork shoreline on Monday.

The property, off Beach Lane in Wainscott, has long been plagued by beach erosion, and a wall of sandbags were placed there several times throughout the years to try and protect it. Sandy proved to be too much; the high waves penetrated the dunes and strong winds knocked over the structure.

Wainscott Pond even flooded onto Main Street in Wainscott — where fish were flopping around the beach on Tuesday morning.
