This is the oldest working lighthouse in the United States. The Sandy Hook lighthouse was built in 1764 and is just over 100 ft. tall. It used to stand 500 feet from from the tip of Sandy Hook, as a result of natural shifting of land , it now stands 11/2 miles from the tip.
The lighthouse is only one of many interesting features of Fort Hancock which is located on Sandy Hook. This is subtle hdr converted to B+W.
