Hamptons Prices Soar To Record As Lloyd Blankfein Parks $33 Million In 8,000 Square Foot Mansion

Tyler Durden's picture




 

If there was any confusion where New York's uberwealthy were scrambling to dump their money in December ahead of the now official tax hike on the wealthiest, we now know: some two hours north on the Long Island Expressway, or the Hamptons to be precise. Bloomberg reports: "Home prices in New York’s Hamptons, the resort towns on the Long Island coast, rose to the highest on record as deals at the upper end of the market surged before expected tax increases for sellers. The average price of homes that sold in the fourth quarter jumped 35 percent from a year earlier to $2.13 million, the highest since Miller Samuel Inc. begin tracking Hamptons sales in 1999, the appraiser said today in a report with brokerage Douglas Elliman Real Estate. It was only the second three-month period that the average purchase price topped $2 million, said Jonathan Miller, the New York-based firm’s president."

Needless to say the when a handful of the 0.001%, and quite close to the New Normal discount window - i.e., the Fed's excess reserves - purchase homes with no price discrimination, it has the same impact as when foreign oligrachs come to the US to launder illgotten cash (with the NAR's blessings), sending prices up some 35% in one year. And since the average price of all houses is dragged higher as a result, TV pundits can spin it as a housing recovery, and get consumers to consume even more by "charging it", making the abovementioned Hamptons' home purchasers even richer: there's your recovery. And it is a recovery, all right, for some: like Lloyd Blankfein who just parked another $32.5 million in prime 8,000 square foot Bridgehampton mansion set on some 7.3 acres.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) Chief Executive Officer Lloyd C. Blankfein bought a seven-bedroom home in New York’s Hamptons that was listed for $32.5 million, a person with knowledge of the deal said.

 

Blankfein, 58, took title to the property on Ocean Road in Bridgehampton in recent weeks, said the person, who asked not to be named because the transaction hasn’t been made public. The person didn’t disclose the price for the home, which was most recently offered for $32.5 million, according to Zillow.com.

 

Property records reported by LexisNexis list the owner as ‘Fein, Blank.’ The sellers were Matthew Mallow and his wife, Ellen Chesler, records show. In August, Mallow, who was named earlier this year as general counsel at BlackRock Inc. (BLK), and Chesler, a senior fellow at the Roosevelt Institute, hosted a fundraiser at the house for President Barack Obama that was attended by Vice President Joe Biden, according to reports in the New York Post and on the website of the Sag Harbor Express.

 

“For the most discerning, this classic Hamptons estate- home, situated on magnificent grounds, offers the ideal blend of every modern convenience and amenity within its early 20th- century construction,” according to a June 2009 rental listing for the property on StreetEasy.com, a real estate website.

 

The home, with six full bathrooms, includes a tennis court, “sculpted gardens,” a swimming pool, and “a winding driveway to a home of which dreams are made,” according to the rental listing.

...

 

The listing price of the Hamptons home is more than what Blankfein spent for his Manhattan apartment at 15 Central Park West, according to a February 2006 regulatory filing by Goldman Sachs. He paid $27 million for that property, the filing shows.

Goldman must pay well:

Blankfein has seen his annual pay drop since he was awarded a record-setting $54 million in 2006 and $68.5 million in 2007. His 2011 compensation was $12.4 million, which included a $3 million cash bonus, $7 million in restricted stock, $2 million in salary and $449,600 in other benefits.

 

Last month, Blankfein reaped $5.93 million by exercising 10-year-old stock options and selling the shares, leaving him with Goldman Sachs stock worth about $209 million at yesterday’s closing price, according to company filings.

Yes it does. And now back to the Hamptons:

“There’s clear evidence of this year-end rush in anticipation of higher taxes,” Miller said in an interview. “We just had a lot of sales at the upper end of the market because the more affluent were more likely to be proactive.”

 

There were 49 sales in the quarter for more than $5 million, the most since 2006, when Miller Samuel began tracking that data. The quarterly average for the past six years is 23 such deals, Miller said. High earners were expecting to see their tax burden rise as Congress negotiated a budget deal into the new year. The top rate on dividends and capital gains climbed on Jan. 1 to 23.8 percent from 15 percent, including a 3.8 percent tax from the 2010 health-care law.

 

The median price for all luxury transactions, the top 10 percent of all sales by price, climbed 17 percent from a year earlier to $7 million, Miller Samuel and Douglas Elliman said.

Be advised: "Like, Crazy" is a technical term

“December was, like, crazy here,” said Judi Desiderio, president of Town & Country Real Estate in the Hamptons, which released a report on the market on Jan 18. The year “was like a snowball rolling downhill.”

 

The dollar volume of homes that changed hands in the fourth quarter surged 51 percent from a year earlier to $771 million, according to Town & Country. The median sale price rose 19 percent to $975,000.

It goes on and on and on, for those for whom, as we said above, there is a recovery. Details can be found here.

For everyone else, here are pictures of the "Fein, Blank" new home located in Bridgehampton:

Occupy is a terrorist threat, and HSBC is not, in spite of $800 billion dollars of money laundering to drug cartels, transactions to Iran and terrorist affiliated organizations. What we REALLY need is FISA and the NDAA to keep an eye on ordinary US citizens, and ensure their proper detention, so the NY Fed can continue to enrich the banks.

Oh, wait. Isn't the NY Fed composed of the banks? Oh shucks, yes it is.

Man, i would love to believe that was possible some days, but where we "little people" get it wrong is, we wait for this moment when we think the reckoning will come for all these evil bastards, thieves, cowards, and facists! Because we have been trained to suffer everyday and believe that Jesus will return and equal out the injustice, its in out DNA! Meanwhile these soul less banker fucks, corporate con men, and political egomaniacs, get away with murder, destruction, injustice, and pissing on our Constituation daily!  And so we wait for the mystical day when "the hanging begins" or better put Christ returns!  Its how we cope and live with it all, but understand this, Blankfein and all his criminal gang of fucking thieves, never believe for a minute, you will ever touch them, they are always preparing too. Preparing to get on their private jets and private yachts, and fly away from the burning mass of wreckage they have created, and "resettle" in some new place, where the pickings are better and the people are ripe for another pillage!!!  If the "farmers" and "little people" ever think they are going to get justice with these savages, they better start doing it, when LB and the boys will be least prepared to survive it!  Otherwise, dream on about some great day of reckoning, when you think any of these maniacs will be punished, as the smoke burns from the rubble of GS's HQ!  They will be nicely set up in a new 33 million dollar mansion in Southeast Asia by the sea, as we burn! Thats how it has worked for 1000's of years and it will be again!

~~~

The only obsession I have is with the daily news feeds... When I log on to ZH [every day], I'm struck with an almost 100% 'reminder' statistic that who[m]ever the FLAVOR OF THE DAY, [whether it be Blankfein, Geithner, Feinstein, Schumer, Bloomberg, Bernanke, any of the 'Goldman-ites'], it's almost 100% JEWS trying to steal my money & take away my liberties in terms of owning a gun...

I guess I must be making the whole fucking shit up...

~~~

Almost regularly, people [newcomers] come on to ZH & drop a comment about all the so-called 'jew bashing'... The explanation is easy... Jews have made it a life purpose to involve themselves with the worlds of:

- finance

- political lobbying

- mass media

- law

They're impossible to miss... Now ~ when some 'farmers' start conniving to steal my money & take my guns, I'll start bitching about them... I dn't think the word "jew" has ever come up on any of the farming or gardening websites that I also look at regularly...

Thankfully ~ I don't owe any joobux to any jews (or ther conies) who printed the LOAN out of thin air...

Umm, racist card play?

Perhaps the age old Testament/Holy Bible saying that the Jews were God's chosen people suggested that he/she gave them special talents-to be used for good or evil.

Am I the only one that acknowledges the majority of the US Governemnt &  media corporate owners are Jewish-and evil, along with the disconnect that millions have benefited society for good? Of course not, but saying so would make me the most hated, horrible AS word in the whole wide world. Better not to speak of things like that.

You are confused about the Bible, IMHO.

Ancient Israel (da Jews, as it were) was chosen by God for a particular purpose.

They failed rather spectacularly.  But don't gloat as you have failed equally spectacularly when it comes to having the content of charcter it takes to live forever as well (we all have, don't triip).

God doesn't respect persons - oh the Bible says that, too.

If you want to believe the Bible, the day the Jewish people are truly blessed by God is yet to come - read the Dry Bones Prophecy in Ezekiel 37.  It won't be just Jews, but all humanity as well - remember, God doesn't respect persons.  We are all selfish, narcissistic trash to God.  Well deseerved, I might add.

I must admit, it is very odd that the people who run this criminal debt based societal asset stripping and immpoverishing Debt Star weapon do tend to be of Jewish origin.

But they are a subset of "the Jews" - and a very small one at that.  The very large portion of other Jews are V-I-C-T-I-M-S of these criminals.

Their wickedness isn't that they are Jewish - it is that they are wicked and their content of character is lacking.

Use a term that actually represents what you mean.  I presume you don't mean that every Jew on the planet, including my neighbor, is in on this societal asset stripping and destroying plot.

francis is a victim of the mideducation system, engineered by the people he calls "the Jews," such that he can't use the right words to communicate his thoughts.

Youtube "The Ultimate History Lesson" (John Taylor Gatto) for a good description of the history of schooling (miseducation) and a lot more.

As Aldous Huxley said, the serfs would rather enjoy their servitude (to being dumbed down and unable to communicate effectively).

My guess is francis just can't quite tap his logic center and his "the Jews" rants are firmly based in his emotional mind.

Now, why he's emotionally wired to attack "the Jews," as opposed to the subset of people, some of whom are Jews, who are orchestrating this wickedness, I do not know.

But CoIntelPro and Cass Sunstein are quite happy as we have to talk about "the Jews" instead of the criminal international banking cartel and their handmaiden government operatives that are destroying our future.

Was that your intent francis?  If so, mission accomplished...  for now.

Fonz - I know what you're saying and LOL'd when I read your comment.

Example: Everyone in our supply chain (truckers included) are trying to sneak a few bucks more into their invoices that go above their quote pricing. It's not much but it adds up and most people won't notice. I had to rip a new arsehole on 2 different trucking companies just today that over charged. When I explained to them that my time is worth $250/hour to resolve these over charges, and that I would be billing THEM for my time to continue resolving THEIR issue, they immediately removed their piddly over charges and apologized profusely.

The world is a fucking mess when companies have to start hiding piddly little extra fees in their invoices rather than complying with, and honoring, their original quoted prices.

I'm fighting their wicked system with all I have.

BUT IT DOES NOT FOLLOW THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WITH JEWISH BACKGROUND, ALMOST ALL VICTIMS OF THE VERY SAME SYSTEM, SHOULD GET LUMPED IN WITH THIS RELATIVELY SMALL GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO HAPPEN TO HAVE A JEWISH BACKGROUND AND AND A ROCK SOLID, ICE COLD, WICKED HEART.

That's where the logic fails - and fails miserably.  It simply does not follow that Jews (or whites, or blacks, or asians) unrelated to the system are guilty of the crimes perpetrate by the Jews (or whites, or blacks or asians) in the system.

There are wicked people in the system with your background.  Are you guilty of their crimes?

Is this really complex?

Liberty is about individual responsibility and account.

The lazy mind wants to over generalize - it is a fallacy.

Don't be simple minded.  Communicate reality, not fallacy.

My Jewish neighbor is royally forked by this system... and then gets lumped in with the criminals he despises.

Only by people who are part of the bigger problem - a lack of character.

Can you imagine experiencing ONE WHOLE DAY without a jew on the T.V., in the newspaper, in the gov't, in a court, in a movie, on a radio, up in your face?

I can't either.

They are 99% of the population right? Right???

My wife was Born in Minsk. Her family went through hell. The ones that made it are here. A few still are still in Belarus. They are good, hardworking people. One of them founded a software company that IPO'd this year. He is a complete success story. They are Jewish

One of my best friends grew up on Long Island. He works for an online sales company. He hates his job. He is a truly good soul and would do anything for me, and has. He is Jewish. One of my other best friends grew up in Upstate NY, moved to NC. Dealt with a lot of shit down there. I work for myself. He is my best client and has done more to help me grow my business than anyone. He is Jewish.

There are good people out there and bad people. If you are a good judge of character you will weed them out easily enough.

What are their thoughts about the 'Apartheid State of Israel'?... Are they outraged about the occupation & oppression [or is it 'crickets' on that subject]?... What about Iran? Syria?...

~~~

Your little story reminds me of all the strategic "ad placement" bullshit that you see on TV all the time... You know ~ the 'Noah's Ark' shit where there is always this group of friends yukking it up together in a casual atmosphere... Of course, there is always one strategically placed Asian, Black, Indian, Hispanic, Male, Female... Those are easy for the eye to see, but when you look further, they usually make some attempt to portray one character as a jew, or a nerd, or some other 'category'...

The IRONY of the situation is that they're trying to paint the picture that it's 'ALL SO NORMAL'... Yet, the ONLY way they can do that is by making it totally CONTRIVED...

~~~

I don't disagree with your statement abou good people & bad people... On the same token, there are a helluva lot more Asians, Indians, Muslims, Hispanics, Persians, etc. around [than jews] & whether it be by force or proxy, I can't remember even one of them trying to take my money or guns...

Someone whose first allegience is to other Jews and who regard those who are not Jews as less worthy than they are (after all, who are the chosen?). They tend to travel and live in packs (as do most ethnic groups). They are very intelligent and invest heavily in education. When able, they tend to assume positions of responsibility that give them increasing credibility and influence. Most profess a humanitarian interest and often contribute to the arts, music and medicine. Many of the donors of hospital wings have Jewish names on large brass plaques.

Because of the focus on gaining and retaining status - including the obtaining and increasing of wealth - Jews continue to be reviled by non-Jews. But this may be more because of their success (or very-large-scale failure, in some cases ;o\).

Christians have long been guided away from the pursuit of monetary gain - shunning blatant greed as unholy. Moslems have shunned usury. The Jews have a long tradition of trade and barter and will happily haggle, load and hoard. WASPs find haggling unsavory, learned much of banking from the Jews of Europe and favor JIT delivery.

Maybe the Jews among us would do well to consider why they have been persecuted. And, perhaps those who are resentful have something to learn from them.

Or, we could just fight to the death...

>>Blankfein, 58, took title to the property<<

So, let me get this straight.  Blankfein paid off his $30 million home and took title ahead of this massive inflation he's about to orchestate as a Board Member of the Fed.

Folks, your debts aren't going to be inflated away.  They are going to be strung around your neck until most folks are impoverished and most physical wealth is transferred to the kleptocracy.

That's why they are the kleptocracy and we are the chumptocracy.

Inflation will likely come, but that will be when the criminals at the top have already conveyed society's assets to their corporate fronts... leaving most homeless on the land conquered by their forefathers.

The definition of our current money is "a debt based societal asset stripping mechanism."  Yes, inflation strips wealth from the people - especially when insiders leverage before criminally blowing credit bubbles (read Section 2A of the Federal Reserve Act and you'll know why the Fed, media and politicians - including Ron Paul - all lie about the Fed having a "dual mandate"...  they don't).

But the real transfer occurs when they bust the debtors.

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. The one aim of these financiers is world control by the creation of inextinguishable debt.”
~Henry Ford

Debt saturation is required to maximize asset theft...  it is a mistake to assume debt saturation will go on forever...  it has its purpose.  When it is done, they will move on to the bust.

The world is more complex than your simple minded paradigms.

Some Jews are wicked people.  Some Jews are the best, most caring people you will ever meet.

That's Veritas that your blunt hammer verbiage pounds into oblivion.

The education system was literally engineered to dumb us down so we can't effectively communicate.  Posts like yours put a big smile on the social engineers who manage the "dumb down factories."

MLK was right - it is an individual content of character issue, regardless of any physicial or other irrelevent characteristics misguied people want to glom on to in order to force a complex reality into a simple minded paradigm.

Collectivists think in terms of millions of individuals as a single group.  That's why they taught you to think that way...  and they are good.

Liberty minded people respect and judge people based on individual characteristics - and the smart ones focus on content of character.

All you Jewish people out there that are victims of these criminals running our fraudulent financial system - we need your help to resist their tyranny. 

Debt Money Tyranny Exposed

Spread the word.

PS - You sound like CoIntelPro trying to poison the ZeroHedge well with ignorance.  If you are, well, you have to make a buck, right.

If not, stop digging that hole and learn a new, positive, individual liberty respecting trick.

That is completely ridiculous. CoIntelPro...my ass. He asked for a definition so I gave him one. It was unbiased and largely an updated for our current day dictionary definition. However, I confess to checking to see who read it and what their explanation of opinion would be. I figured someone would react as you have, although I figured there would be as much on the other side.

Of course, MLK was right. I think you are still furious, and I do not blame you, but I will say the same thing I told a right-winger who sent a vitriolic email re Obama the other day.

This is nothing new. It has been going on for a VERY long time. Many documentaries have been made, most have been suppressed.

I saw this one the other day on the “INDIE Channel” (Comcast), made quite some time ago. It pretty much said it like it is.

 

Obama is not unique. Just one of a long list…

 

Peaceful Day to you

I gave two options.  learning a new liberty loving trick was the second option.

A liberty lover could never post this...

"Maybe the Jews among us would do well to consider why they have been persecuted. And, perhaps those who are resentful have something to learn from them."

First "the Jews" don't exist.  That's a simple minded construct of something that doesn't actually exist.

Second, liberty is all about respecting the individual and NOT irrationally grouping said infdividual with people s/he can not control.

You are as wrong as the people who blame all white people for the transgression of some white people.  Nonsense.  We all stand or fall on our own.

Third, it assumes the persecution of all Jews was justified.  Did you really mean to side with Hitler there?

Hitler also persecuted liberty lovers who spoke out against his authoritarianism.  Was the problem the anti-authoritarian's problem or Hitler's problem?

Simple minded solutions to complex problem are usually wrong - and your over simplification is wrong.

But few have the ability to self evaluate, so you will probably defend the simple "the Jews" paradigm to the detriment of those you try to associate with.

For that matter, we are all being persecuted by the criminals at the top now - so it is our fault now and we have to ask ourselves what we did wrong to deserve the persecution?

Just stop with the irrationality.

Mon, 01/28/2013 - 15:33 | 3192273 illyia
illyia's picture

So. You are saying that we are not tribal.

I disagree.

I think ethnic and racial distinctions are factual. Human immorality (corruption) leads to persecution on the basis of these differences. Jews are no difference in the fact of their "otherness" than are Christians (of any particular denomination).

It is "otherness" being used for nationalistic purposes, by persons who want to ride that wave, that is the problem.

"Otherness" is just a fact of human origin. We are all "other" to someone.

For that matter, we are all being persecuted by the criminals at the top now - so it is our fault now and we have to ask ourselves what we did wrong to deserve the persecution?

And, the above is just silly. Hang the banksters high.

That's so fucking lame it isn't funny...

~~~

It reminds me of those spam e-mails that circle around about the ONE black professor that has cautionary words about Obama [like that is supposed to level the whole playing field]... That kind of shit is about as believable as Manti T-eo's girlfriend...

I know ~ Why don't we elect a representative from JPFO as the 'Mayor of Chicago' (to prove to everyone that we mean business here, & that citizens should have the right to arm themselves)... I can't pretend to know a whole hell of a lot about the JPFO [nor do I imagine YOU do ~ my guess is that you found them on page 18 of a Google search ~ after all, it took you a whole fucking hour from your previous post time stamp to find them]...

In any case, I'm also guessing that if they were true jews, they'd be selling ammo [& making money in the process]... Since they're not, sounds more like a Mossad intel gathering front to me...

Lastly ~ Congrats on your find, because in endeavoring to do so, you answered your own question from above... Namely ~ "What is a jew"?... Why don't you go back to the JPFO site, buy a bumper sticker from them & ASK THEM that question?... They obviously seem to IDENTIFY THEMSELVES as a particular subset [otherwise ~ why all the bother]?... I mean ~ francis_sawyer has many varied & diverse interests, but I don't spend my time & energy [& money] into hosting a web domain to cull people [ostensibly ~ people who shared my exact same mindset]... Unless they think they're going to sell a "Jews for Gun Ownership" bumper sticker to Bubba to slap on the bumper of his F-150...

IOW ~ Perhaps the more 'logical' question would be... "Why the NEED for a 'Jewish' gun advocacy website?... Haven't these folks ever heard of the NRA?...

>>He's surrounded by 7 acres of humans... That's all shits like him know how to do...<<

Now that the emotion is taken out so it won't blind you - do you see your logical fallacy yet?

By using the word human, i've essentially communicated almost nothing of merit.

Criminal Blankfein and crew don't equate "the Jews" anymore than they equate to "the humans".

They are a SUBSET, NOT THE WHOLE.

You actually BENEFIT these criminals by giving them a place to hide amongst their victims.

Would it surprize you that almost all of "the Jews" are victims of these criminals, just like you and I?

The education system was engineered to dumb us all down.

Stop making these criminals smile at their success.

Look up the Trivium.  Meditate on the meaning of the words you use and hear like Socrates.

Elevate your game instead of instead of repeating your emotional programming.

Look ~ While I share your bid for a noble & perfect world, it just ain't ever going to be that way... There will ALWAYS be subsets who will work loosely, or in more CONCENTRATED ways to, profit, & otherwise 'LORD OVER' the rest of humanity...

Your good friend Lloyd Blankfein is the head of Goldman Sachs... Besides the every day "muppeteering" activities, it seems that GS enjoys inserting other HUMANS to key positions such as US Treasury Secretary, & the boards & committies of the EU & EU financial affairs... Is that how you REALLY see it?...

And there will be a subset of biggots who lump the real criminals in with a much larger characteristic...  like skin color or lineage.

You do a service to the criminals by implicating innocent Jews when you take that overly broad brush.

Yes, some Jews are criminals and some run this criminal financial system.

But not all.  Not even most.  A small percentage are involved in "the big conspiracy" (fact, not theory, folks).

Your perfect world argument is a straw man.

Blaming the actual guilty people has little to do with polyana.

Lumping the guilty in with a much larger grouping is flat out irrational and self defeating.

Are you responsible for everything someone did with your hair color?

How about your skin color?

How about your family - are you guilty of the worst thing a family member ever did in your family line?

Are you guilty for the worse thing someone your height did?

Are you guilty for the worst thing someone in your neighborhood did?

How about city?

How about state?

You are guilty, right?  Just like "the Jew" is guilty for Bernanke's crimes.  Right?

Or is hypocrisy part of your irrational trade as well?

I recently found this website on this topic and now reading his book.  I remember in my midwest Jr High School learning about 1947 and the other wars in that region.

I feel very strong that most people are decent.  I also feel very strong that the people in power (they are not all Jewish) are there because they are morally flexible.  One needs to understand what a sociopaths is and a psychopath is.  They exist across the board.

 

Do you think a taxi driver from NYC, Frankfurt, Baghdad, Iran, and Israel would go to war over a disagreement.  No, I think they would figure things out.  Do you think a president, king, queen from these areas would be able to figure it out?  They think differently than we do.  They divide and conquer.  Keep an eye out for divide and conquer.  The middle class needs to stick together on this, or the Bens, Ombamas, Clintons, Yahoos of the world will continue to win at this game of stealing.

Orly,

Not too sure, you trading the GBP?  As ZH pointed out; only risk for the EUR is the LTRO, say it tanks (EUR), slightly, you'll have a flow into GBP and GILTS.  Cameron is sly mf, who couldn't give a f*ck about the EU, France knows this, the only thing that may help the UK (which is a write-off like everyone else) is safe haven flows or repatriation.

He creates tension/conflicts and you get GDP boosts.  I am kinda thinking that is what Abe is angling at, but danger lurks with these 'leaders'.

Good luck.

Pull up a Weekly of the Cable and you can see a clearly defined wedge.  It hasn't hit the bottom trendline yet and is bound to do that to ~1.56.

It must be a miss, not +0.2%.  We'll see.

Looks kitsch and cheap.  If I had his loot I'd buy a skyscraper in Manhattan, turn into a f*cking fortress

"Escape from New York", I'm guessing is the reference?

How about "The Towering Inferno"?  Remember that one?

Sounds like good material for a WB7 illustration either way!

His servants - Bernanke, Timmah, Obummer, Frank, Fannie & Freddie honchos, Bid-them, and the rest of the gang - already have Section 8 (subsidized) housing! that "esplains" the absence of servant quarters.

Looks more like a partnership in crime to me than master & servant...but still, plus one ;-)

You would think Lloyd would be happy to keep that house. The NY Fed keeps him informed on policy moves ahead of time (directly or INDIRECTLY), and then his cronies basically escape prison time by bidding up the stock market for the Fed's. Quite an easy ride for a group of criminals colluding on a daily basis and quite certain they have permanently avoided prison time for widespread mortgage fraud.

The Google street view car went by there in 2008. Type in "Ocean Road Bridgehampton" and you can see the road and high hedges, gates, etc of the elite. Not much else to see.

I find it strange that every single street view I have done on Google during the past month has been updated from 2009 photos to more recent 2012 photos. So why has Lloyd's Love Nest not been updated since 2008? Did the residents ban the Google street view car from ever returning?

"Candy from a baby." Man...this is REAL money. Forgot "robbing Peter to pay Paul." We're robbing Peter AND Paul...and Mary's got herself a new man in her life! I stand by my assertion "most people lose money in bull markets" and I think this one will go down as the biggest money losing "boom" in history. Amazingly the Administration wants to DOWNGRADE the war effort!!!! I'd laugh my balls off if that was really a bond bubble now...ah, but Bernanke is too good a guy for that (thank God!) Anywho..."imagine how high this market will go WITH Apple on board" and I think anyone with even an scintilla of verisimilitude would say "wow...those people really are richer than God for a reason." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUz6Hov7j_c

That's typical for Americans, all those comments about bad taste, everything wrong about it and they would do much better with that money. Meanwhile hundreds thousands of big brains living in powerty, they would advance medicine, technology, sciences and all those things we need to grow to advance this society to the next level. They can't do it, there is no money for it and everything is going to all those fucks from finacial industry.

Lloyd probably never even went to see it. He likely had one of his minions find it on his behalf for some type of write off. He'll probably use it as his "coke & hookers den" if he ever sets foot on the property. The place will get trashed in short order and will re-sell a year from now for the price of a Big Mac if it's not burned to the ground int the meantime.

If I was Lloyd, I'd buy a 747 and convert it into a flying brothel and fly it over international airspace to avoid getting busted... er... never mind. He commits crimes regularly on terra firma USA and he's still a rich, free man.

The brain: "The executive functions of the frontal lobes involve the ability to recognize future consequences resulting from current actions, to choose between good and bad actions (or better and best), override and suppress socially unacceptable responses, and determine similarities and differences between things or events."  Ever notice how all these reptilian banker types are bald?  Hair won't grow on top of that dysfunctional cesspool.

You mean it doesn't even have a throne room?! Disappointing. Somehow I would have expected more for the world's preeminent Lord of Finance.

Maybe he just bought it as a rental property.
