Fish or cut grass

Notice the man past the sign tree on the lawn near the water. He appears to be wearing something like a sombrero and is holding a pole. Was he fishing, or is he scything grass?

Tiny town

Manhanset Manor has officially been known as Dering Harbor since 1915, a few years after the massive Manhanset House Hotel burned down in 1910. For many decades it has been New York's least populous municipality. The 2010 census showed a total population of 11.

Warning Sign

No "fast driving," or else.
