Bay Street Theater & Sag Harbor Center for the Arts announces that Friends of Bay Street has listed for sale 22 Long Island Avenue in Sag Harbor. This was the site of the proposed new Bay Street Theater development.
Adam Potter, Chairman of Friends of Bay Street stated, “We have thoroughly examined the site and have determined this property is no longer viable to build a theater as originally envisioned.”
Tracy Mitchell, Executive Director of Bay Street Theater & Sag Harbor Center of the Arts, noted that with a renewed lease in hand at their present site, Bay Street will continue to be a cultural anchor for the community and the East End. Mitchell stated, “Bay Street will remain a vibrant and dynamic cultural center for all of the East End. Our lease is renewed at our current location and the role we play as a cultural anchor for the village, for over thirty years now, will continue uninterrupted. We are confident in our future and enjoy a loyal, enthusiastic supporter base with a robust year-round schedule. We will continue supporting our community, the artists, and over 30 other non-profits with whom we partner.”
