Lucy, the Margate Elephant


Margate City, New Jersey (NJ), US
Built in the 1880's, Lucy still stands thanks to a relocation and the work of some dedicated preservationists. In this 1920's postcard on the right, Lucy is known as the "Elephant Hotel." She is also known as the World's Largest Elephant.

I vaguely remember climbing up in Lucy when I was a kid. They had some sort of museum inside, filled with all sorts of odd sea stuff. I'm glad to see she's still standing! Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised if the Margate town council decided she had to leave because the area needed a new Starbucks or Wal-mart. It's a disposable America, even for 124 year old elephants.
