The structural & cosmetic overhaul of Lucy the Elephant in Margate should have been be completed by now.
Margate resident & expert drone operator, Ron T. Brown, took his DJI Mavic 3 and did some investigating. This was filmed on Sept 29, 2022. Watch video.
The $2.2 million restoration project started more than a year ago. Lucy needed replacement of her outer metal skin and rotted wood underneath. Saltwater rot from over the years. Everyone looking forward to the grand reopening of this historic destination.
Lucy the Elephant was built in 1881 in South Atlantic City, which would later be known as Margate in 1909. Lucy was originally built as a marketing tool to help sell real estate.
