It's not clear whether the Sean Hannity family's decision to put their Lloyd Harbor, New York mansion on the market is related to his decision to move out of New York State eventually but it certainly has fueled speculation.
The native Long Islander used to live in the four-bedroom, 5-1/2-bath house on the Long Island Sound; today, he lives in Centre Island. He recently said that he plans to move out of New York State in coming years (he blamed high taxes but also has recently spoken out against Gov. Andrew Cuomo's comment that “extreme conservatives . . . have no place in the state of New York"). He could not be reached for comment about whether selling the house now has to do with those plans to leave the state, but Elena D'Agostino of Signature Premier Properties speculated, "That might be the reason."
In case you want to do your part to perhaps hasten Hannity's move out of the Empire State, the asking price is $3.6 million. You can take a virtual tour of the house here.
You may recall that on January 21, Hannity said he was too important had too many people counting on him to leave New York right away but that he thought he'd go after his son graduated high school (in about two years).
And while he keeps preaching self reliance for everyone else, I’m sure he spoils his kids rotten.
I will say that Hannity occasionally shows off that below the waste he wears jeans and sneakers.
Also, while I think Antoinette’s overall point is spot on, I don’t think $100 for shoes is exorbitant either. It’s pretty much par for the course for me and I don’t dress fancy. Yes, I have some for less and I can buy them cheaper but shoes that are decent quality are usually around $100, I just bought a pair of new running shoes for around that much. Also, funny you should mention it but my TV died recently and I replaced it with a flat screen. But I only have two TVs (my other is an old “regular” one) and I’m sure Hannity’s TVs have a zillion bells and whistles.
He seems to me the epitome of what used to be called “nouveau riche.”
We point out Hannocchio’s consumption to illustrate that he is completely out-of-touch with working poor families struggling to pay bills and put food on the table. He and his ilk, the GOP, were cheerleaders for cutting food stamp benefits, stopping the Affordable Health Care Act, and other programs that help poor families. He does not wear the shoes of the average working poor families.
It’s true that the average family has one flat screen tv. They’ve come down in price in the last few years, but we doubt that the average family have, or can afford 7 or 8 flat screen tvs in each room, given their limited income.
The average dress shoe for men are less than $100, depending on the brand, store, and sale price. When families shop they search for sales and check out the clearance section because they can’t afford to spend over their budget. The average families have to watch every penny to make ends meet since some of them haven’t seen a raise in years.
Multi-millionaire Hannocchio can afford to send two children to private school, and fly them across the nation to tennis tournaments. We doubt the average family can afford this luxury.
Hannocchio is in no position to say what’s best for the average working poor family. He does not live paycheck by paycheck, compared to the average American. He does not have to worry about the lights being shut off, rent due, or apply for food stamps due to lack of income. The man has three homes, and is in the process of selling one. The average working poor family is struggling to keep one roof over their heads.
Next time he rants on the air about poor working families getting “free stuff” ask him if they earn the same income as he does.
Joe, these self-serving hypocrites don’t care about the poor. They really don’t. They only care about their own survival and their careers at this worthless “news” network.
I found a page which breaks down religious affiliation for that zip, and almost 52% say they’re Catholics. The other half are distributed among many other faiths, with a smattering of Jews and even a few — gasp! — Moose-lims.
Even “low end” sneakers from brand names (Nike, Addidas, etc.) are $100 or more these days.Well-made mens dress shoes probably start at $300 (I haven’t bought new shoes in a long time).
I’ve never seen pictures of footage of Hannity’s lower half, so I have no idea what he wears (anyone? Ellen?). On teevee, if all the shots are from the waist up, he probably cheats and wears jeans and flip flops.
“Flat screen” TVs are no big deal. They’re ubiquitous today. I don’t think any manufacturer makes tube sets any longer.
Probably every Amerikan family has one or more flat screen TV, even the poor and those on welfare that Hannochio is always griping about (“these people have color TVs and washing machines!”).
What is probably more likely is that he has a screen in every one of the 16-room mansion. And many of them are surely the newer monster screens, 50" or larger with 3D, costing $4,000 and up.
And they’re probably on 24/7. I could live very nicely on what Slanthead must pay just in power and cable bills each month!
This aging media hack earns additional income from real estate deals, commissions, film deals, speaking engagements, etc.
His portrayal of the “average working man” is part of his brand to appeal to the working class, and older Americans. The truth is Hannocchio is an elitist who lives the high-end life from five-star hotels like the Ritz Carlton to the best eateries in town. Everything that he buys or uses must be top-of-the-line, including his shoes which cost over $100.
One of Hannocchio’s favorite toys is flat screen televisions. No room, or should we say rooms, is compete without one. He has one at his News Corporation/21st Century Fox office. Hannocchio loved watching his tennis matches while working on his shows.
He prefers living in predominantly white Roman Catholic neighborhoods with predominantly white schools, and predominantly white Roman Catholic churches. We will discuss this so-called St. Dominic’s Roman Catholic Church on Long Island another time.
Hannocchio is not leaving town immediately. This cafeteria Catholic has contractual commitments at this fraudulent “news” network, and he has family commitments this summer-give our best to the happy couple.
He is too old to attract younger demos. Most of his audience are older past the 25-54 demos. There are two younger Fox “News” mouthpieces who could bring in those numbers which would make the suits, advertisers and agencies very happy.
Hannocchio is a complex man with a fragile personality. He can’t take rejection very well. We don’t think he can handle what’s coming down the pipeline this year.
NOTE TO HANNITY
Bob Beckel’s new home.
Whites — 87.1%
Blacks — 2.8%
Asians — 3.9%
Hispanics or Latinos (of any race) 12.8%
… and of those, only 84 said they were of Mexican orgin.
Whew…. these amigos are probably safe as long as they stay hidden behind the shrubs and hedges while Hannity tears along in his 8mpg armor-plated Escalade (the one he promised Gov. Cuomo that he’d mount a gun rack on when he leaves New York).
For the insatiably curious, you can find many more details here:
Unlike others here who follow Slanthead’s shenanigans “closely” I wasn’t really aware that he had kept the older house after moving to the Centre Island McMansion — it was obvious he needed so much more room: seven bedrooms vs. four, three more bathrooms, etc.
[Some more details here: http://gothamtogreenwich.homestead.com/SeanHannity.html
and here: https://www.newsday.com/classifieds/real-estate/real-li-1.812034/sources-sean-hannity-closes-on-centre-island-estate-1.833158]
The move was really imperative for Hannity’s massive ego. After all his years in the “wilderness” of middle Amerika — which he called the best years of his life just the other day on the radio — he certainly needed to “move up” from the working-class Irish “slum” he grew up in on the South Shore. The Lloyd Harbor digs certainly fit the bill at the time. But then when a truly ostentatious house became available, Slanthead grabbed the opportunity.
Maybe he kept the older “bungalow” simply to store his supplies: the tons of survival food he gets for free from one of his sponsors, and his arsenal… all the ammo for his collection of AR-15s, Glocks (and who knows what else he hasn’t revealed yet).
If that was the case, he probably got some tips from his good buddy Levin (the failed Philadelphia shyster who did his postgraduate work in Nurse Ratched’s class at Oregon State Hospital) on how to build an underground bunker beneath the new mansion.
So the old joint is now on the market. I don’t think it means he’s moving any sooner (if at all?). Probably also wants to reduce his property tax bill which Slanthead is always whining that “Nassau County has the highest taxes in Amerika!”
He may actually go through with that waterboarding next . . .
