President Trump's Friday Visit May Infringe On Weekend Travel Plans For Hamptons Visitors

President Donald Trump. PRESS FILE
Aug 7, 2019 12:02 PM

Traffic delays and restricted air traffic are likely to occur on Friday as President Donald Trump visits the Hamptons for an August 9 campaign reelection fundraiser.

Many visitors choose to start their weekend early and travel to the South Fork on Friday, either by car, plane or helicopter, resulting in heavy traffic during the morning rush hour — and high profits for air charter businesses like Blade, which offers helicopter flights between Manhattan and the Hamptons. The timing of Mr. Trump’s trip may impede some visitors’ plans to spend their weekend out east.

Mr. Trump will be attending an event held at local builder Joe Farrell’s Bridgehampton mansion, known as “Sandcastle,” hosted by Republican National Committee chairs and several members of Congress, including U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin. The official time will not be announced until 48 hours prior, but guests will start to arrive at noon, according to Mr. Farrell’s assistant, Kaitlin Kelly.

Details of Mr. Trump’s itinerary remain confidential, but what is known is that there will be rolling road closures during his movement between locations, meaning that sections of the road will close only while he is passing through them.

When Mr. Trump attended a reelection fundraiser a year ago in Southampton Village, he arrived at Francis S. Gabreski Airport in Westhampton on Air Force One and traveled via his armored limousine to the event. Both sides of Sunrise Highway faced rolling closures as Mr. Trump passed through.

“We do not expect that this will cause major traffic delays, because he will be moving rather quickly, so any traffic closures that pop up will be kind of temporary and fluid,” Southampton Town Police Chief Steven Skrynecki said of Friday’s plans. “I also don’t think the time frame will be such that it is significantly impacting our high-volume times.”

The U.S. Secret Service will be managing Mr. Trump’s transportation services throughout the day, and Town Police will assist, Chief Skrynecki said on Monday, adding that his department was not certain of the exact route.

On Wednesday, the Federal Aviation Administration issued a temporary flight restriction, or TFR, for Mr. Trump’s visit. Based on information from the TFR, Mr. Trump will be at Gabreski Airport between 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. for his arrival and later between 3:15 to 4:15 p.m. for his departure.

The TFR prohibits all aircraft operations within a 10-mile radius of Gabreski Airport and the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill up to 17,999 mean sea level, which encompass East Hampton Airport and the Southampton Village helipad on Meadow Lane. The Gabreski radius has restrictions placed between 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. and 3:15 to 4:15 p.m., and the Parrish radius has restrictions between 11 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Within a 30-mile radius of both locations, aircraft operations are limited and must follow special procedures up to 17,999 mean sea level between 10:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. That includes the Montauk Airport, the Klenawicus Airfield on Shelter Island, Lufker Airport in East Moriches, Long Island MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma and Brookhaven Calabro Airport in Shirley.

Friday is one of the busiest days for Blade, which has 45 scheduled flights to the Hamptons listed on its website, some of which are already sold out. The TFR will likely force at least some of the flights to be canceled. Shoreline Aviation, an aircraft charter based out of Marshfield, Massachusetts, also flies to the Hamptons as well.

Blade representatives could not be reached for more information, and Shoreline Aviation officials declined to comment.

While the fundraiser takes place, several Long Island political activism organizations plan to gather for a peaceful protest on the Water Mill Green, near the windmill. The Progressive East End Reformers are hosting the event.

What a disgustingly biased headline. This President's visit will cause no more disruption than that of any other, yet a search of previous articles relating to presidential visits show that NONE of them couch it in such a negative way. NONE.

"Infringe".

Isn't objectivity something Anisah Abdullah and the press value, or have they shamed themselves by heeding the left wing call to the media to set aside "normal" standards in covering this presidency?
By MoronEliminator (215), Montauk on Aug 7, 19 10:00 AM
Infringe (verb): act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on.

Traffic will certainly be limited, will it not?

Perhaps your attribution of "negative" to a simple description is evidence of your own lack of objectivity.

As for previous articles, please cite the headlines you refer to.

HA!!!! Have you travelled around the Hamptons lately? How about when a police officer pulls someone over, or there is a minor fender bender? 20 minutes of "activity" backs up traffic for an hour. Add in Friday, Summer, no plane traffic so all those people have to drive....No way this ISNT causing delays.

Hey...no justice, no peace..right? Enough is enough with the police not having the backing of liberal politicians. It’s time they start taking matters into their own hands. If it’s not a felony, fine. Then it will be at least a misdemeanor...and the officer at that point will be able to use the amount of force necessary to bring the suspect down. I never advocated for the killing of anybody. But if in the process of bringing the person down, he should happen to die...oh well. Next.

You’re wrong Fore1gn. The act itself is not already a crime. The suspects involved so far have only been charged with OGA (obstructing governmental administration ) and harassment. They are turning themselves in now to take those charges before it turns into a felony (if the law passes).

Meanwhile in Missouri, an off duty firefighter with a CONCEALED CARRY permit single handedly thwarted another major mass shooting at another Walmart. Why haven’t we heard about his heroics? ...more

Dmitriy Andreychenko has been charged with making a terrorist threat in the second degree at the Walmart Neighborhood Market in Springfield on Thursday, Greene County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Patterson said in a statement Friday.

Missouri is an open-carry state, meaning state law does not prohibit gun owners from openly carrying firearms.

"That right does not allow an individual to act in a reckless and criminal manner endangering other citizens," Patterson said.

I did see that he was charged late Friday and I await the adjudication of the case with bated breath, as I'm sure all proponents open-carry do.

I still think the courts will find he didn't commit a crime, though he certainly didn't do himself any favors by speaking with detectives after being read his miranda rights.

Perhaps you can fill in the Greene County Prosecutor who is still examining the case." So, I did. Don't b mad.

Nah, I checked before I posted and the Greene County Prosecutor's press release wasn't up yet, nor was there any reporting on a charge at that time.

If you need further proof, the local NPR affiliate, KRCU, said this: "Greene County Prosecutor Dan Patterson’s office confirmed the charges late Friday afternoon."

All that notwithstanding, I'm very curious how this case will play out and genuinely hope he doesn't cop a plea, though I expect that's what will happen.

Manufacturing is down and exports are down, but keep cheerleading.

Trump could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and you'd still support him, so what's a little recession?

The people of the United States have always
shown up to defend the nation.

The hundreds of thousands of people attending President Trump's rallies
know that is what is at stake.

True nationalism knows no color race or creed... Black, Hispanics and every other race have eagerly joined the MAGA movement to make our country better.

Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder Charlie Kirk on SiriusXM’s radio Sunday said that the stakes for the upcoming 2020 election have “never been higher” because the left wants to “deconstruct our country from within.”

“This political fight that we’re about to engage in [ahead of the 2020 election] — will make 2016 look like a calm political battle,” said Charlie Kirk during his Sunday interview. “This is going to be the most consequential, ...more

Biden: ‘We Choose Truth Over Facts’

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told a crowd of supporters on Tuesday that "we choose truth over facts," apparently referring to the Democratic Party.Biden's statement led to numerous accounts tweeting out the hashtag "TruthOverFacts" and some even mockingly suggested that it should be his new campaign slogan. LOL

27dan, here you go,”Continental Army “[taking] over airports” while fighting the British in the Revolutionary War.” this could go on to eternity with trumps stupid statements

@ Fred s

- - - And let's not forget The Donald's commiserations to the residents of TOLEDO just hours after the mass-shooting in DAYTON.

Mere stupidity? Or symptoms (like his articulation generally) of a deteriorating neurological disorder.

If you choose truth over facts, you would choose Toledo over Dayton too.
Trump occasionally mis-speaks, but Biden always mis-
thinks.

Most normally literate people who have dipped their little toe into philosophy (or theology) are aware of the relationship of "truth" to "fact" and know which is paramount in importance to ethical conduct. This leaves out true believers and their equally obtuse propaganda organs.

There is, however, no misunderstanding the "truth" or "fact" that the Continental Army DIDN'T actually defend the "airports" against the British and that the most recent mass-shooting occurred not in "Toledo" ...more

Thankfully President Trump's little toe is much bigger than yours.
Donald Trump is the most important man on the planet today, and you are not.

Both the lying leftist media and the treasonous Democrats are hoping for a recession or other misfortune to strike the United States. Those who love America will support TRUMP 2020! When a party hopes for economic hardship on the people for political power you know they are not a party about the people but a party about the power. TRUMP 2020!

Kind of sad to watch actually. Joe Biden is falling on his face ... just like Hillary. 9/11 is coming up. maybe he'll do a commemorative "doof-toss" into a vanbulance. This is the best the super intelligent, most woke, exceedingly moral left has to offer? The Dem candidates are a laughing stock to the whole planet.

I understand why the party wants to appeal to moderate Republicans, but the fact is that Donald Trump could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and he wouldn't lose any support.

There are far more exciting candidates than Biden available, but the old guard may have to learn that lesson first-hand again.

"There are far more exciting candidates than Biden available" - I agree but most of them are like watching a train wreck happening, you can't look away, nor do you wish it to happen. My prediction is that if any of the top 8 democratic candidates win the primary we'll have 4 more years of DJT.
By bird (829), Sag Harbor on Aug 21, 19 9:16 AM
That's generally a safe bet regardless of who the incumbent is, but I think plenty of people are looking for a return to civility and a couple of Democratic candidates who could galvanize the necessary support from people who were non-voters in 2016.
