Sag Harbor Follow Up (BBB)

As reported in the Sag Harbor Express, work began in earnest this week to start demolishing the big blue gas ball (Hortonsphere) that has stood at the corner of Long Island Avenue and Bridge Street for more than seven decades. It was 75 years ago this week, in fact, that the sphere was being built. Looks like a King Kong-sized hard-boiled egg, eh?

Unfortunately, due to ground contamination caused years ago under the BBB (Big Blue Bawl), neighboring businesses have been told that they will need to vacate their shop space soon to allow for clean-up. That has put several proprietors in a tough spot to find new locations. In particular, Harbor Pets is scrambling to find retail space in the Harbor.
