"A Fish Called Sheepshead"

Forgotten NY--Sheepshead Bay

Sheepshead Bay is not called "Sheepshead" because it's shaped like a sheep's head. It got its name, rather, from a fish called a Sheepshead that was once found in local waters, but is no longer. Now you know, in case you didn't previously, which is one reason why you might want to click on over to Forgotten New York. The Sheephead Bay page is full of interesting photos and historical information.
