Wayspot removal appeal: Nathaniel Whitman Historical Sign

Title of the Wayspot: Nathaniel Whitman Historical Sign

Location: (40.8199771, -73.4217475)

City: Huntington/West Hills, NY

Country: United States

Wayspot was erroneously removed, but the historical marker can still be found at this location. Please restore (screenshots attached).

I had uploaded the original images for this wayspot last year, which had been approved on 9/7/21 and was present for several months before it was removed without warning in mid-January 2022.

Aside from the original photos above, Google streetview of the location shows the sign is visible and accessible.

    Unfortunately, it is next to a road with no pedestrian access. It is also next to a fence along private residential property. And due to setback laws that can vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, there is no guarantee that the fence marks the edge of the property.
