Fire Island Lighthouse

Fire Island Lighthouse
Fire Island Lighthouse at Robert Moses State Park (Babylon, New York)—October 5, 2014. The Lighthouse was completed in 1858. At 168-feet (51.2 meters) above sea level, the Lighthouse can be seen from as far as 20 miles (32.2 kilometers) away.

Below is a photo of the lighthouse that was taken in 1952 and is available at the Library of Congress. The caption is:

Richard Mahler (5) is the Fire Island School's youngest pupil and lives the farthest away. His father is the lighthouse keeper and, since the lighthouse is about four miles away, school is a long ride by jeep / World Telegram & Sun photo by Roger Higgins.



The photo can be found here. There are no known copyright restrictions on this photo.
