North Dumpling Light. During prohibition, the isolated beaches and islands near North Dumpling were found to be ideal for transferring illegal booze. In 1986, the island was sold to the Segway Human Transporter inventor and he battled with Suffolk County authorities for permission to build a windmill to power an electric generator. He then began an extensive campaign and declared that his island was now the sovereign “North Dumpling Republic” and that he was Lord Dumpling II. The new nation was to have its own currency, the Dumpling, a national anthem and a one boat navy.
