I visited The Big Duck yesterday. It's my favorite attraction on Long Island. It's a building in the shape of a duck.
The Duck has an interesting history. It was built a century ago by a duck-farmer to promote his business. Later it was bought by the government and is now operated by the State Park Department. Inside the Duck is a gift-shop with cute offerings.
The kitsch of the Duck attracts tourists and makes everyone smile. One interesting feature is that the eyes of the Duck are made from the headlights of a Model T Ford automobile.
