East Hampton ‘party artist’ ordered to pay up for wild summer

The man who used his swanky Hamptons home to host illegal parties this summer —telling Page Six at the time it was all “art” —has been ordered to pay a $32,000 fine to the Town of East Hampton.

Juan Figueroa, who owns the $3.7 million glass home at 145 Neck Path, was issued a restraining order from the town last summer barring him from “hotel-like rentals, promoters’ parties, product launches,” and more after the town discovered it was the “secret location” of parties that promoters were charging “fees of up to $5,000” for “reserved spots poolside and bottle service.”

Figueroa told Page Six at the time, “Throughout history artists have been persecuted only to be celebrated later.” When we asked if his place is an artists’ compound, he said, “I am the artist I refer to,” and, “I consider the house a work of art.”

This week, the town ordered him to pay $32,000, reports the East Hampton Star, and he agreed to abide by town code. On Thursday, he told us, “I would have paid anything to never see their unhappy resentful faces again.”
