Meet The Oldest…

Themed 365 Project

….operational lighthouse in the United States of America.

Built in 1764, the Sandy Hook Light stood 500 ft from the lower mouth of NY harbor, it now stands almost a mile from the harbor due to something called littoral drift.

One of these days I’ll actually get to go inside this light, it’s just that whenever I’m there the tours are closed! What’s up with that? No one wants to get up at 5:30am to open the doors:)
