Friday, 27 April 2012 00:00The Enterprise Pilot received a call last week from a reader, alerting us about a clam shack set up on the Western Waterfront. The caller was concerned that a building had gone up without any previous notice, and wanted information about it. Luckily, we had a story ready to put in the newspaper that we thought was the solution to the problem.
The caller said there was a clam shack 10 feet away from the pier on the Western Waterfront. He wanted to know how it could have appeared without a DEC permit and said, “You can’t build within 400 yards of the water. There it is, with 10 picnic tables and umbrellas.”
We thought we knew the answer and called the WaterFront Center to ask about the clam shack, and Christina had the answer. She said, “It was Royal Pains, they started work on Friday afternoon, April 13, and worked over the weekend on the shoot, and were gone Monday afternoon by 6 p.m.”
We were sure it was Royal Pains back in Oyster Bay filming episodes for their TV series, and were happy to see that we were correct. You will see the story we wrote about Royal Pains starting on page four of this issue of the Enterprise Pilot. The photographs were taken by Patricia Aitken, Friends of the Bay executive director while she was out in the FOB boat, and running her water quality monitoring program. She also snapped a few photos of the filming on the streets of Oyster Bay.
If you spot the TV crew out working do send us a photograph to share with your friends, our readers.
