On my way to Montauk with some friends, I visited this Big Duck. It was an amusing 15 minutes of my life.

If you like fun roadside attractions, this is a stop for you. Cute place to take some fun pictures. The shop was not open while we stopped. I’m not sure if it’s due to COVID or another reason.

I grew up in Riverhead and when I was a kid, my dad would take us to the ocean to swim and pass by The Big Duck. Us kids would anticipate approaching the curve in the road and would shout out "I see the Big Duck !" in unison to see who saw it first. It was a big event for us little kids. I remember stopping in with my father to buy eggs, giving me a chance to check out the inside of the store. It was tiny. There was a lot of other things hanging on the wall and I suppose it was memorabilia promoting The Big Duck. I vaguely remember getting my father to buy me one of those old painted postcards as a souvenir. I wonder where it is today? The Big Duck was moved to a new location which I think was being developed as a local park, but was later moved back to its original location, much to my delight. I haven't lived in Riverhead for many years, but when I go back to visit, I still feel the excitement of approaching the curve in the road and yelling, "I see the Big Duck !" My wife (from Boston) thinks I'm weird. Richard Schaefer Palm Coast, FL

This is a pretty neat thing to see as one drives along route 24. Decked out for Christmas it is very pretty to see after dark. A little gift shop is now inside.
