10 quirky roadside attractions on Long Island

You won't need a wishing well to find

You won't need a wishing well to find luck in Massapequa. Legend has it a Fiberglas horse, buffalo and totem pole that belong to a giant Indian statue bring visitors good fortune. Big Chief Lewis, built by Rodman Shutt of Pennsylvania, was brought to his home in Massapequa on May 21, 1968. Long Islanders search for the statue, found between the Massapequa Post Office and the Big Chief Lewis building off Sunrise Highway, to make wishes at the artifact. Photo Credit: Frank Posillico
