Montauk Point Light

Montauk, NY

This is the first lighthouse built in the state of New York.  It was commissioned by George Washington in 1795 and completed in 1796.  It stands 110 feet tall and the light can be seen 19 miles away.

  1. I like the angle you used here. Lighthouses are wonderful. I wonder how many coffee table books of lighthouse photographs have been published.
