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”
And here is the entrance to the Mortar Battery, close to old buildings of Marine Academy of Science & Technology
Inside the Mortar Battery
To give some rest from buildings and structures here are some shoots of the coastline and beaches. Pretty wild and beautiful
The second part of this post, about the Fort Hancock can be found here.
Last thing, here are some maps of the area:
1. New York 1776 yr. Sandy Hook highlighted with green.
2. Confidential Fort Hancock map of 1915.
3. Current map of the Fort Hancock.
4. Sandy Hook camp gateway area map.
Hope you enjoyed this photo report! Thanks for watching 🙂
