And finally, Goldman Sachs’ CEO Lloyd Blankfein has a fancy apartment in Manhattan and a mansion on Long Island. But he’s not stopping there. Apparently, he’s just bought another house on Long Island: a $32.5 million estate in Bridgehampton.

Eight thousand square feet, 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, wet bar, tennis court, gardens, pool — but no ocean view. $32.5 million and no ocean view?

Apparently, they say, Mr. Blankfein’s just not an ocean kind of guy.
