Ben Bradlee, the former executive editor of the Washington Post who died on Tuesday at age 93, has a long list of accomplishments to his name. He helped publish the Pentagon Papers and oversaw the Post's exposure of the Watergate scandal, to name a few. A lesser-known, but still pretty amazing fact about Bradlee: he and his wife, journalist Sally Quinn, were the ones who restored East Hampton's famously decrepit Grey Gardens estate. Curbed National has the full account of how they did it, this way. [Curbed National]
