That is Billboard Rock in Wading River on North Country Road. I have heard it was so named because they used to post town notices on it.

Mr. Losquadro It's amazing that between being our State Assemblyman and running a campaign for Town Highway you have time to comment. Life is sweet

There is a similar rock at Great Rock Golf Course, off Sound Avenue. I can see the rock from my back yard! I didn't realize there was another huge rock in Wading River!
