So how many lighthouses do you suppose there are in New York, the state? This list gives over 75, and right off I know one that is missing. Can you identify the lighthouse below? Answer follows, but I’d really like to know the name of this bulk carrier that was entering the Narrows around noon last Sunday, 1/28. Help? It reminds me a little of–you guessed it–Alice, who by the way seems to be headed back north. westb.jpg

If you guessed, West Bank Light, you were correct. It’s about 3.5 nautical miles outside the Narrows. How about this next one?

It’s Old Orchard Light. Notice the Bridge and the Empire State Building to the left and the HSBC Bank in Brooklyn off to the right. For both of these lights and many more in many states, the list above gives some interesting history.
