The Sea Serpent of Nantucket
As early as the 1830s, residents of Nantucket, Massachusetts, reported seeing sea serpents, ranging in size, scale and monstrosity. In 1937, local businessmen discovered giant footprints on the beach. Radio and newsreel reporters were called in and soon discovered that the creature was a rubber balloon, inflated on the beach of Coatue and sailed across the harbor by Tony Sarg, a man better known for making floats at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
