Photo Challenge #312

It looked like the Longshore entrance drive — but it wasn’t.

It reminded many readers of Sherwood Island — but it wasn’t.

Last week’s Photo Challenge showed the tree-lined drive leading to what used to be Harvey Weinstein’s home. Now demolished, it sat adjacent to Burying Hill Beach. (Click here to see.)

Rich Stein, Ryan Burke and Michael Brennecke were the only 3 to correctly identify the (very private) site. Michael (and Sam Febbraio) also referenced it by a previous owner: the Glendinning estate.

I’m not sure if Harvey ever had any wild parties there. (Though I could guess.)

But I know for sure the Glendinnings did.

That’s all I’ll say. Now we’ll just move on to this week’s Photo Challenge.

If you have any idea at all where you’d see this week’s very difficult image, click “Comments” below.

  1. Signs of a new discovery made in outer space at the Rolnick Observatory.🤨

  2. Wasn’t last week’s picture also the home of Lucille Lortel?

    • I could be wrong, but I don’t think so.

      • Lucille Lortel owned the vacant lot next to the Glendenning house, and used it to hold picnics — I went to a number of parties there. I think, when she died, the lot was split and sold to the neighbors on either side, one of which was Harvey…the property had been bought by her late husband Louis Schweitzer.

      • We always knew it as Charlie Stetson’s house

  3. Low tide on the Saugatuck River (taken from satellite imagery) ??????

  4. Could this be the sunken and near-buried remains of a boat stuck a tidal sand-bar or just off-shore? — I seem to see the shape of a rounded stern at left, and perhaps a tip of the bow at right.

  5. That would be the sunken barge in the Saugatuck River near the Cribari Bridge in the mud flat along the east shore of the river.

  6. Barbara Sherburne '67

    Aerial view of boat docks?

  7. I agree with Bill Rizzuto. It looks like the sunken onion barge.

  8. I don’t know where this is, but it looks like a shot at low tide of an area that is usually underwater for the most part. It looks like parts of a foundation of something or I think I remember that a barge may have sunk a long time ago and these are the remnants of it. So it’s either on a sandbar or in an area on the Saugatuck river or the tidal pools.

  9. Sherwood Mill Pond oyster beds as seen from above?

  10. Elizabeth J. Yoder

    One of the rocks on one of the jetties on one of the beaches?

  11. can’t enlarge the image so my best guess is a boat ramp with trailer scrape?

  12. You guys are AMAZING! It IS the sunken onion barge in the Saugatuck River, near Bridge Square and Bridge Street. How the hell you knew that, I’ll never. But congrats!

  13. Wow!! These guys are good. I could have sworn it was a table top at a party in the 80’s..lol

  14. I see it daily at low tide LOL!

  15. Right LOL!

  16. The old onion barge off the sauna tuck bridge! I used to see it more clearly as a kid!

    • MARTHA MOGREN . RELATED TO MARY AND “MO”? THEY LIVED NEAR LONGSHORE GOLF COURSE. THEIR LITTLE BOY USED TO TAKE GOLF BALLS OUT OF HIS FATHER’S GOLF BAG AND SELL THEM TO THE GOLFERS ON THE COURSE. VERY FUNNY

  17. I meant saugatuck bridge! Dang auto correct!

  18. A little late, but that’s the sunken Henry Ransom, a double ended centerboard schooner that leaked, and eventually sank.. when docked, they put sandbags to plug the leaks. Cap Allen worked on it on trips to New York to sell onions (before he bought the Clam House.). when we were kids, our father pointed out the visible frame at low tide every time we crossed the bridge.
