MONTAUK, N.Y. — Paul Simon’s cottage on eastern Long Island is in danger of slip sliding away.

Newsday reports the singer-songwriter’s home in Montauk, New York, is being moved back 80 feet from the edge of a bluff, in an effort to save the home from erosion.

A geologist consulting on the project, Wendi Goldsmith, said work began in February to temporarily move the one-story cottage a safe distance from the drop-off.

A 50-foot buffer of native vegetation will be planted as part of the effort.

Simon’s summer home is about 20 feet from the bluff’s edge, facing the Atlantic Ocean.
