Sandy Hook Light House

Sandy Hook LightHouse (1764)

by Kashpersky, June 25, 2016

Reading different books or stories, where the action took place in or around the lighthouses, such as Stephen King’s “Storm of the Century” or other, it was always interesting and exciting for me to visit one of them.

For me it was a surprise to find out that we have one in our New Jersey area. Want to show you some photos from inside and outside of The Sandy Hook Lighthouse.

But also there was another very interesting thing to explore there – the ruins of the old military buildings of Fort Hancock since approx. 1902… It works and ready to defend New York Harbor more than one hundred years ago, incredible!
See the Fort Hancock Exploration in the second part of this post.

Here we go… most exciting part of the story. “Sandy Hook Light”
