If good fences make good neighbors, Roger Watersof Pink Floyd fame needs to put another brick in the wall — the wall he should build around his property in the Hamptons, that is.
The legendary British rocker has been at war for three years over a right-of-way that gives his neighbors on Quimby Lane access to Sag Pond.
The trouble started when Ben Krupinski, the contractor hired by Waters and his beautiful wife, Laura Durning, began building a 14,000-square-foot house with a swimming pool, a pool house and a sunken tennis court.
Krupinski started driving trucks and bulldozers down the right-of-way, so neighbors put a chain across the lane. But Krupinski tore down the chain and paved the right-of-way, turning it into Waters’ driveway.
One neighbor claims a 15-foot hedge was ripped out, and $50,000 damage was done to his gardens, irrigation and in-ground lighting.
“We went to court, and the judge issued an order blocking him from using the illegal road he built,” a neighbor told me.
“Waters has shown no respect or interest in his neighbors and has taken aggressive action to satisfy his convenience — not waiting for the court to evaluate the litigation he initiated.”
But a friend of Waters told me of the neighbor, “This guy is crazy and wrong and sad . . . He’s looking to start some propaganda campaign based on nothing factual . . . He has been a nightmare for no legal reasons, and we’ve patiently put up with him.”
really enjoyed both your and ToppTonn2's comments about this, because i feel that stuff, too.
