The Changing Face of the Hamptons

I remember the last time I was at the CPI. At that time, it was known as the OBI East. There was what felt like a thousand people in the room with the DJ playing Billy Idol. In the next room, there were another thousand partiers rocking to a Marshall Tucker cover band.

I once heard the Boomer generation characterized as being like a sheep eaten by a boa constrictor as it passes through time. Well, the biggest nightclub around for over 30 years is closing and the property is turning into a "private residence club" with the amenities of a Four Seasons luxury hotel.

I can't help but feel a bit nostalgic. md
