No photograph available at this time



The original wooden lighthouse was established in 1827. In 1906, it was replaced by a new 35 ft red brick tower and moved about 700 ft southwest of the old light. It remained actively manned until 1934 when the USCG discontinued the lighthouse and erected the current one.

Location
The lighthouse is located on the northeasterly side of Fort Schuyler, southeasterly end of Throgs Neck and on the northerly side of the entrance from Long Island Sound into the East River.
