Sag Harbor Has a Whale of an Issue

SAG HARBOR: Two weeks ago someone spray-painted four whales onto the tarp covering the front of Sag Harbor’s historic John Jermain Library on Union Street.Luckily the paint did not penetrate the cloth and damage the newly restored brickwork beneath. Most locals were more concerned about kids endangering themselves by climbing on scaffolding than they were about the silly whales. Last Friday night, or early Saturday morning, someone painted a blue whale onto Sag Harbor’s national landmark, the First Presbyterian Church, AKA Old Whalers’ Church.

Now the gloves are off. Sag Harborites, and not just Presbyterians, are out to catch and prosecute the criminal who defaced this site. It took church supporters decades to raise the funds to repaint the church last year. If you have any information about this crime please call the Sag Harbor Police at 631-725-0247.
