Suffolk Times: Southold Town [on Long Island] will soon have a new public waterway access on Peconic Bay, after the state DEC announced this week that it has purchased the former Old Barge restaurant site just off of Route 25 in Southold.
The 3.2-acre waterfront property will be used for public fishing and recreational boating access to the bay, according to a press release from the DEC Tuesday [January 15]. It will be the DEC’s only public access site on the bay. The DEC also owns a public boat ramp area on Mattituck Inlet near the entrance to Long Island Sound.
