Lucy the Elephant
Lucy the Elephant is a mammoth structure with a body that is 38 feet long and 80 feet around with 17-foot-long ears and 22-foot-long tusks, and stands 65 feet high. As a ploy to attract land buyers to his site, 25-year-old James V. Lafferty constructed Lucy. The plan failed, but over the years Lucy is used as a summer rental home, a tavern and a boarding house. She is a major tourist attraction and beloved symbol of Margate City, NJ.
