    Village of Sagaponack

    Richard G. Hendrickson

    After 350 years there should be  few words on the settlement, village, community of Sagaponack, Sagg or “place where the large ground-nuts grow.”

    It is one of the very early divisions of Southampton, laid out before Bridgehampton, Sag Harbor and other parishes.  This 1653 area is unusual:  100 miles east of the mainland, bordering the broad Atlantic, and stretching northward for several miles over the most level and fertile land of this island.  With its ponds, its forest, its rich soil, it has remained nearly pristine.

    Harry Joe Brown Jr., 71, Innovative Developer, Dies

    Douglas Martin, New York Times

    In the mid-1990′s, Mr. Brown acquired 56 acres of scrub land in the hamlet of Sagaponack for $1.6 million when another developer went bankrupt. It was supposedly on the wrong side of the Hamptons’ main road, too far from the beach and too close to East Hampton Airport.

    Mr. Brown, widely known by his nickname “Coco,” persuaded the architect Richard Meier to recruit a roster of top architects. Mr. Brown’s idea was that people with a certain blend of wealth, knowledge and pretension would line up for modernist houses designed by the likes of Mr. Meier, Philip Johnson, Michael Graves and Sir Richard Rogers.
