I took this photo this past weekend.  Question:  Where on Long Island is this light located?  Answer follows.  Be careful . ..  it’s a trick question.

Actually, here’s a clue.  And I don’t mean to be ornery . . . but water boat?  Are there land boats?  Air boats actually I’ve seen.  And stone boats I used for farm work as a kid.

Here’s a question I wish I knew the answer to . . . this pier currently exists just west of the St George ferry racks and 9/11 monument.  My question is . . . will it remain there after the New York Wheel construction ends?  Has anyone seen it already used to move in components of the Wheel complex?

That word–Neutrino— seemed unlikely, given its New York harbor context.  Some of you might remember Town Hall and Son of Town Hall, creations of Poppa Neutrino, inhabitants of Pier 25 a mere few decades ago.

It was all before my time here.  But if you have stories and/or photos, please share them.
