The Big Duck

The public bathrooms are almost done at The Big Duck! They will be housed in the small stucco building right next to the duck. This building was recently restored, thanks to the Friends of The Big Duck, who were just appointed the officials stewarts of Big Duck Ranch.

[Janice Jay Young, 09/11/2012]

The Big Duck has been an attraction since 1931, so we can probably hold out for the bathrooms a little while longer.

Long Island Duck

There it was! I'd been to Riverhead so many times and wondered where the Duck was. The gift store was great and had as many duck things as your house could hold. The woman at the counter was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. A Must see when you're out East!

Fun for kids. The Big Duck gift shop includes rubber ducks and yellow duck candies!

The Big Duck

Local police are baffled by a failed after-hours break-in at the Big Duck. The door in the duck's butt was kicked in, but an alarm sounded and the attacker(s) fled, leaving the Big Duck's hats and t-shirts unmolested, and the structure otherwise intact. The president of Friends of the Big Duck has speculated that the attacker was perhaps just trying to get warm.
