I could swear that this boat has been in this yard at 59-95 Grand Avenue since I was a kid. Luckily, a nifty tool called CityMap allows one to check his or her sometimes shaky memory against reality.
This is a screenshot of a 1996 aerial shot. And sure enough, there's the boat.
By the way, a boat parked in the front yard is a zoning violation. Still, I'd rather see a quirky old boat overgrown with weeds on an oversized lot than see it filled with Fedders houses.
