Navesink Twin Lights Light Station

November 21, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

The Navesink Twin Lights Light Station is situated atop the Navesink Highlands, and sits approximately 200 feet above sea level. It is comprised of two lighthouses separated by 320 feet. One of the reasons for having two lights was to help mariners differentiate it from Sandy Hook Lighthouse located 5 miles to the north. Officially decommissioned in 1949, it is now a historic site and museum.

Below are some of the photos I took during my visit to the site. I hope you enjoy them.

The strip of land going through the center of the frame is part of Sandy Hook, NJ.
