The BIG Duck
b_400_300_16777215_00_images_stories_old_Roadside_duck.jpg This well-known classic piece of roadside lore can be found on Route 24 between Flanders and Hampton Bays. Yes, you can even go inside. The inside is equipped with a nice little souvenir shop. The duck is now maintained by Suffolk County. It was originally built by a duck farmer during the Great Depression in 1931. It was inspired by roadside attractions in California, namely a diner shaped like a tea cup.
