If you needed a reminder of the frigid temperatures and whipping winds outside, this week’s North Fork Sunday Scene is for you.

Our Barbaraellen Koch spotted the pier at Luce’s Landing in Northville completely covered in ice and, apparently, recently broken earlier this week.

The pier, built by local farmers at the turn of the twentieth century, is located near Iron Pier Beach.
