The National Lighthouse Museum on Staten Island, NY is continuing its educational lecture series with “The Lost Lighthouses of Staten Island” on Thursday, April 4, 2019, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Museum.
Historian, librarian and sailor Andrew Wilson will lead an armchair cruise around the harbor visiting the vanished lighthouses and aids to navigation that made the old port of New York the greatest in the World.
Featured in the presentation will be underwater bells, the original Robbins Reef Light, lightships at Governor’s Island and Sandy Hook, the lights of Newark Bay, the world’s largest gun at Romer Shoals, the Bergen Point Light by the Bayonne Bridge, the time balls atop Manhattan skyscrapers (they gave birth to the New Year’s Eve ball drop tradition at Times Square), the pirates of the Corner Stake Light in the Arthur Kill and more.
Admission is $5 for members, $10 for non-members.
The National Lighthouse Museum is located at 200 The Promenade at Lighthouse Point, (adjacent to the free Staten Island Ferry) St. George, Staten Island.
