It looks okay right now, though there was a bad place=locality there a
day ago. The rendering Foursquare uses may not be up to date.
Cleaning this area up is pretty easy since all that's there is a buoy.
You can just select the other data and delete it.
For some time there was a LearnOSM tutorial that periodically leaked
data to the region, but that's been fixed. Of course, occasionally
there's data that makes it there with software bugs, generally in import
conversions, and I think some JOSM versions start at 0,0 in the right
Note: 0,0 is quite clearly not in the US ;)
