Many of these names remind me of Fire Island Cherry Grove, where most of the older quaint smaller houses used to have creative or theatrical names. The art was lost as they started building McMansions along the shore and Bay.
Does anyone know if some still proudly display their names? I assume most were named pre-Stonewall.
The Last Homely House
The Hide Away
Billingsgate and Chaff
The Golden Arches
R72, I knew of one, I think the smallest "house" in the Grove, little more than one room/w tub & shower: Think Big.
If R50 is true, and why wouldn't it be, R62 you fat ass with no friends, why aren't you asleep? Fuckin' Douche!
Some older men in the Hamptons have some fun names … Hansel and Gretel, Water Tower Place, The Crystal Palace, but it's really not the done thing. I think it'd be fun to have a house and name it from where your father was born. Like Cranbrook in Bloomfield Hills.
