New York Lighthouses

A lighthouse can be better defined as a tower, building or any other built structure either fully or partially enclosed, near the shore of an ocean, harbor or river, bearing a very bright light on the top of it named as beacon. It is used as a navigational aid and its purpose is to warn ships at sea and guide them safely on their way.

New York possesses many historic lighthouses that are found along the sea shores of Long Island - and some of them have been a standing witness to the gruesome past of the United States of America. Many interesting legends and histories have originated because of these lighthouses' existence.

Some of the legends that haunt us from a few of New York lighthouses are extremely horrifying. Execution Rocks Lighthouse is one of these lighthouse, known for its horrible and disturbing lore and carries a horrifying legend of how it got its name. It was designed by Alexander Parris and lit up in 1860. It runs automatically by solar power and is not open for public viewing.

Another lighthouse is the Fire Island Lighthouse - nicknamed as ‘The Winking Woman’. It came into existence in 1826 and was known as New York’s tallest lighthouse, lit up with two bulbs of 1000 watt. It gives the appearance of a flash after every 7.5 seconds due to its anti clock-wise rotation. The Cedar Island Lighthouse was established in 1839 by the United States Coast Guard and no amount of natural disasters has been successful in extinguishing the glory from it.
