Trash, Noise Complaints Made at East Hampton Nightclub

Police say number of noise complaints, like the number of overall calls, are typical for a holiday weekend.

Summer in the Hamptons has arrived and with an increased number of calls for police officers and ambulance personnel.

Chief Ed Ecker said there was a typical number of noise complaints, but one place that stuck out in particular was , also home to Beaumarchais restaurant this summer, on Three Mile Harbor Road in East Hampton.

The department was called there three times over the weekend; on Friday at nearly midnight, May 27 at 2:26, 3:03 a.m., and 5:30 p.m. Only once was the noise above the limit and a summons was issued, Ecker said.

One reader wrote-in after she spotted trash — mainly large plastic cups — on Three Mile Harbor Road, infront of the nighclub. Photos taken Sunday morning at around 7 a.m., show there was some trash strewn about on the side of the road.

Reprentatives from the EMM Group, which owns the East Hampton club, did not immediately return a call for comment.

Overall the town police responded to 350 calls for his department's service over the three-day holiday. "There were no major accidents, which was great," Ecker said on Tuesday, adding that there were only 11 in his jurisdiction.

Emergency medical service volunteers were kept busy this weekend. Ecker said there were about 45 calls over the weekend, which he said was not an unusual number, but a significant number nonetheless.

It still remains to be seen how many driving while intoxicated arrests the . Members of the task force are going to critique the weekend's activities on Wednesday, Ecker said.

it always was a nightmare! that said, if they cleaned up their mess and left the surrounding neighborhood as it was, that would be something. A little consideration as they make their $$$$$. And remember they are in the country, not Times Square. Everything in prespective.

It is true. This is a tourist town. The Town and residents depend on the Tourists" for their survival. The 'party' noises go with the territory. As long as they are not damaging our persons or property, we should try our best to enjoy their company. Those who complain and try to put a wet blanket on their vacation simply cause themselves and everyone a lot of discomfort. It goes with the territory. (My guess is that the few complainants are the same ones that complained about the Buckskill Ice Rink. (Unhappy people who want to put a wet blanket on everyone's happiness)
