More than seven years have elapsed since the demolition of the cottages at , a controversial issue that polarized the community.
While the land had been designated by the Town of Brookhaven as parkland in the 1970s, more than 90 privately-owned cottages remained at West Meadow Beach until 2004, when they were demolished to create a public park. Since then, West Meadow Beach has grown into a place people flock to year-round, whether for a dip in the water or a stroll down Trustees Road.
We're looking for photos of the cottages – whether recent or old. If you've got photos to share, log into Patch and post them here to start a community gallery of photos in their memory.
Editor's note: This article has been updated to correct an inaccuracy that suggested state Assemb. Steve Englebright passed legislation that directly led to the demolition of the cottages.
