Hamptons Real Estate by the Numbers: Memorial Day Edition

The purchase of Duryea’s Lobster Deck in Montauk last week was just the latest news-making event in a big off-season of real estate sales here on the East End. A three-generation mainstay for diners and the wholesale market alike, Duryea’s will stay in business in 2014 before the new owners change things up. Since the last holiday weekend—that’s Labor Day, in case you’re keeping score—celebrities and those-who-prefer-to-not-be-named alike have played the numbers game in Hamptons real estate:

$5.9 million—Asking price for Duryea’s and related land and auxiliary buildings

$22.50—Cost of a Lobster Salad Roll at Duryea’s Lobster Deck (that’s 262,222 you could get for the sale price, plus a little change)

$147 million—Price of what is now the most expensive home ever sold in the U.S., on Further Lane in East Hampton

11—Properties on the Hamptons market between $50 million and $100 million

$2.2 million—What Scarlett Johansson paid for her Amagansett home in January
