This pool is causing waves in the Hamptons.

East Hampton Village residents are trying to sink a proposal by the landmark Huntting Inn to add a pool to its grounds, claiming it will destroy the historic character of the neighborhood.

“Approximately 50 neighbors and concerned citizens have written to oppose the pool and hot tub,” next-door neighbor Brent Feigenbaum, 64, told The Post. “I believe this to be the largest public opposition in the village’s history.”

Wet blankets sniff that they don’t want the precedent-setting puddle to turn Main Street into the “Jersey Shore.” The inn is home to The Palm restaurant.

“It’s just not in keeping with East Hampton Village,” insisted Feigenbaum, who fears more commercial pools will open “up and down Main Street.”

Another concern: “Who’s going to monitor it? Who’s going to monitor the noise level and the people going in at night and the people who are staying there?”

Huntting Inn reps returned to the East Hampton Village Zoning Board of Appeals last week in their bid to keep the plan afloat.

The latest application calls for the 10-by-20 pool and 10-by-10 hot tub to be located behind the inn’s timber-frame guest house.

“It’s an amenity for the hotel guests. It’s not going to be open to the public, so it’s not going to be a swim club,” said Martha Reichert, an attorney repping Landry’s Inc., a national hospitality group that owns the inn. twomey and latham

“Who’s going to monitor it? Who’s going to monitor the noise level and the people going in at night and the people who are staying there,” someone asked.

The inn is nestled in the heart of East Hampton’s Main Street, which, according to National Geographic, is one of the most beautiful Main Streets in America< its website touts. instagram/easthampton_histsoc

“It’s an amenity for the hotel guests. It’s not going to be open to the public, so it’s not going to be a swim club,” said Martha Reichert, an attorney repping Landry’s Inc., a national hospitality group that owns the inn. She noted there are plans in place for an automatic pool cover, set pool hours and no pool lights.

“You’re not going to have diners from The Palm ordering a steak and then taking a dip in the pool,” Reichert said.

Feigenbaum contended, “It’s a small town and it’s a charming, quaint historic inn and it’s been around for several hundred years and they’ve never had a pool and a hot tub.”

The story was first reported in the East Hampton Star.
