  1. OMG – I remember that “Roanoke Avenue Relic” – which has been a “relic” as long as I can remember! That old pump house has looked that way for at least the last 50 years… glad you got it on film before it turns to dust…great shot! Maybe they could take up a collection and restore it as a landmark, like they did with the Witch’s Hat in Aquebogue.

  2. I pass by this relic nearly every day and always wondered what it was ! Thanks for this interesting bit of information and yes, it would be great to restore it.
