Charred Gay Town Allegedly for Sale

So there was big gay hubbub when a troika of power gays bought up almost all of the business district of the Pines on Fire Island. This was two years ago, and they spent $17 million. Back in May, one of them called himself a “guardian of the culture of the Pines.” Then much of the business district burned down this last November, and the same owner, Andrew Kirtzman, wrote that “Tomorrow morning, Seth, Matt and I will begin the process of renewing this beautiful property and making it even more spectacular than it was before.” Last month, they finally got a variance from the zoning appeals board to start building again — the town of Brookhaven is legendarily slow and annoying. So now they’ve started to place the foundation for the Pavilion, which is to be completed in 2013 — and now the rumor is that the whole parcel is on the market for sale. The usually chatty Kirtzman is, so-far, no-commenting today.
