"BRING ON THE ELEPHANTS"
The original Long Beach, NY boardwalk was built between 1907 and 1909 by William H. Reynolds, who brought 2 Elephants (Roger and Alice) to the construction site as a publicity stunt. The boardwalk was an integral part of his plan to develop Long Beach into "The Riviera of the East." Fast Forward...On October 29th, 2012 Hurricane Sandy devastated all of Long Beach including our beloved boardwalk. It's time to bring back the Elephants! The Elephant has immense determination and loyalty - always standing up for others and always defending members of the group in its natural habitat. The Long Beach community shares this same sentiment. This is part of the reason why anyone who has lived here, even if just for a short time, feels a deep rooted connection with it. We believe the Elephant is more than a publicity stunt. The Elephant is a symbol for Long Beach and all that it embodies...
