On a recent May evening, Janet O’Brien served up Old-Fashioneds and tequilas on ice to friends at her Montauk home. The conversational menu featured what one might expect for a tony Hamptons cocktail hour: past and upcoming trips to Morocco, Manhattanites bragging about rarely stepping foot in Brooklyn and gossip about how much neighbors spent on renovations. The setting is perhaps the interesting part: Ms. O’Brien’s home is in what they all call “a trailer park.” Montauk Shores, the roughly 200-unit manufactured home community that overlooks Ditch Plains Beach, isn’t what immediately comes to mind when one thinks of a trailer park. The crash of ocean waves pierces the air, and nearly everything in the park looks to be in pristine condition — including the manicured lawns, the smoothly paved roads and the “trailers.” For many people, living in a manufactured home isn’t a choice, but a necessity. Here, the “trailers” are several people’s second or third homes, … [Read more...] about Inside Montauk’s Luxurious ‘Trailer Park’

Mobile Home Park on the Atlantic Appeals to the Rich
MONTAUK, N.Y. — When they were growing up in the 1970s and ’80s, Cherie and Merry Doughan spent their summers at Montauk Shores, a mobile home park that is about as far east as you can live on the East End of Long Island and still have a roof over your head. Only the Montauk Association Houses, where Andy Warhol and Dick Cavett summered, and the lighthouse keeper’s place lie beyond. “It was the Wild West back then,” Cherie Doughan said. “Or I guess you’d call it the Wild East. People sure knew how to party.” Both sisters fondly recall the bathtub their father, Alpha, had found who knows where. It sat crookedly on the lawn in front of their white and beige Liberty mobile home, and their father would regularly fill it with suds and climb in with a case of beer or a big jug of Gallo wine. He would invite passers-by to join him for a drink, and many obliged, splashing in beside him. The tub is gone, replaced by a deck overlooking the Atlantic, but otherwise the home, 12 … [Read more...] about Mobile Home Park on the Atlantic Appeals to the Rich
Priced Out of the City, They Bought a Tiny Suburban Home. Now What?
Much has been written about “good enough” marriages, but what of “good enough” houses in “I guess we have to live somewhere” neighborhoods? This is the story of a family who began with low expectations and then fell in love. In 2016, Amanda and Alain de Beaufort were renting an apartment with a garden in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, where they had access to a new school with a Spanish/English program for their two children. (Mr. de Beaufort, 49, is from Colombia.) The family had achieved urban-suburban balance in a community they treasured. They were happy. Then one day, their landlord sold the building for cash and gave them a month to pack up and move out. “OK, we’ll just buy something in Sunset Park,” Ms. de Beaufort, 46, recalled saying, before making the cruel discovery that no affordable properties remained in the neighborhood. The couple cast their eyes on nearby Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. They flirted with Westchester County. They did not consider New Jersey. “It wasn’t … [Read more...] about Priced Out of the City, They Bought a Tiny Suburban Home. Now What?
