Inscription.  Ligonee Brook/Creek and the Greenbelt's rare coastal plain ponds are partners in the drainage system left by the glaciers. Historically, alewives and eels have migrated up Ligonee to Long Pond. In 1803, the Sag Harbor Fire Department successfully petitioned New York State to define Ligonee as the Village's western border.
