Slow weeks in Greenwich real estate

It’s mid-August, and everyone except Cos Cobbers and Byramites is off on vacations, so we have rental activity reported, but little else.

So where are they? Not in Nantucket – Obummer’s own vacation there has closed the golf course and clogged the island. I’m guessing they’ve diverted to an exotic locale like Martha’s Vineyard which, until the Commander in Chief upset the applecart, was exclusively reserved for Democrats, while Nantucket hosted Republicans, just as Aspen’s for rich liberals and Vail attracts conservatives. These days, it hardly matters, because it’s just rich vs.”them”.

I don’t want to be mistaken for a transplanted Bostonian

Portland Maine is a wonderful city and I hope to stay here, but it does have a resident population of tofu-gummers most of whom, it seems, migrated up here carrying the infected mind of liberalism. Hence my new license plate holder; it balances neatly with the NRA sticker on my rear window.

Old Greenwich Harbor contract

4 Cove Ridge Lane, asking $4.5 million. My (blog) records show that it was asking $3.785 back in 2013, had an accepted offer, then the deal failed. If so, the sellers should be grateful to that 2013 buyer who walked away.
