SAG HARBOR - An East End art dealer is knee-deep in a zoning battle over a 16-foot sculpture of legs she put up on her front lawn. Vered, of Sag Harbor, put up the sculpture outside her home at the corner of Madison and Henry streets. Village officials have put their foot down, saying the statue violates zoning laws because it's too close to the property line. A building inspector says it qualifies as a structure due to its large size. Vered says she applied for a variance, but it was denied by Sag Harbor's zoning board. The village is threatening to fine her if she doesn't remove the sculpture within the next nine days. Now, Vered says she has a lawyer doing the legwork to figure out how to keep the statue standing.
