Who sculpted this masterpiece of sand? Nobody knows, but loyal Sheepshead Bites reader Kathleen Higgins sent us this cool image of a sand castle assembled on the Kingsborough Community College beach.

Kathleen was told that this mighty empire of sand once had intricate steps, walls and other features before the forces of Mother Nature began to take their toll, exactly like Jimi Hendrix predicted all those years ago.

Thanks for the pictures, Kathleen!

    The flood insurance cost on this castle must be astronomical!

      “So, uh, that’s uh, base level, plus estimated flood level, minus, uh, volume of sand moat, uh, multiplied by, uh, annual estimate rates, uh, plus…. ah, fuck it. I’m moving to Park Slope.”

      But are the turrets livable space? ARE THE TURRETS LIVABLE SPACE?!!!

    There is no mystery. I was sitting right next to the gentleman who built it, a very nice guy. I didn’t ask his name but I had seen his work before, in competition, on the Coney Island Beach. The castle was built on Thursday, 7/18 & I’m so glad to know it’s still standing, because as soon as the builder left, curious little kids brought in action figures to pose in it & were jumping around.
