365- Concrete or Cement

Sandy Hook, NJ is the home of Fort Hancock, a miltary outpost in the early 1900’s. Although mostly abandoned, it is also the home of the Sandy Hook lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse in the US,  which was built in 1764.  This picture was taken about a 1/2 of a mile from there and although they are both built with concrete or cement, this unknown structure has not faired as well as the lighthouse, which still stands today.
