Boat Removed After Many Years

Samoy says that the boat, called the “Scalliwag,” has been on the empty lot for a dozen years. Samoy says that the boat, called the “Scalliwag,” has been on the empty lot for a dozen years. According to Stephanie Samoy, the president of the Beachside Bungalow Preservation Society, a miracle occurred on August 14, when an abandoned boat, which has been lying at Beach 24 Street “for more than a dozen years,” was finally removed by the city’s Department of Sanitation.

“The boat had been an eyesore, a trash receptacle, temporary housing, a love nest and an unwelcome fixture on the empty lot,” says Samoy, adding that they still don’t know who provided the impetus for Sanitation to finally take it away.

No matter who did, however, Samoy says that the residents of the area are very happy.
