Dinosaurs have been spotted on East Main Street in Riverhead.
According to Riverhead Supervisor Sean Walter, rumors of dinosaurs seen roaming back into town are true.
"I can tell you that dinosaurs have been spotted on Main Street," he said.
The prehistoric predators, Walter said, were witnessed entering a building on East Main Street right next door to the future .
On Tuesday, Nancy Kouris, owner of the Blue Duck Bakery, predicted the dinosaurs' return and said she'd be offering prehistoric goodies at her East Main Street location. "Thanks to the future reopening of the dinosaur museum to our west, some T-Rex cookies," would be on the menu, Kouris said.
Walter said the new dinosaur project has been commencing quietly. "They've kept it hush-hush, and they've kept it hush-hush from me, too," he said.
But Walter said it was safe to say a new dinosaur attraction would be coming soon. The former closed in Riverhead in 2008; Walter said the new project would be "completely different," with new owners.
The new attraction, he said, "is going to more interactive."
Although details are unclear, Walter predicted more information would become available about the new business "in the next month or so."
