Fire Island Lighthouse
Fire Island Lighthouse Review
The 168-foot-tall lighthouse—Long Island's tallest—marks the western tip of Fire Island. The black-and-white-striped beauty, built in 1858, replaced the original 1826 lighthouse which, at 74 feet tall, was deemed too short to be effective. Tours of the tower are offered; call for tour times and reservations. On clear days Manhattan skyscrapers are visible from the top of the lighthouse, a climb up 192 winding steps. To get to the lighthouse, park in Field 5 of Robert Moses State Park (park on the lot's east side) and then walk ¾ mi following the marked trail.
