Greetings Bruce, the lighthouse is in some disrepair, and is unfortunately, not open to the public. finding it was a treat since it is tucked away near the end of a street in a lovely part of Staten Island.
You're the man, Thorsten. I've wanted to chase this baby down since I first saw it on your pages. Thanks again :-)
Good Shot, Greetings from Maracay
TRES BELLE PHOTO. MAYAAMON.
Kedves Bakosné, Thorsten nagyon örült, hogy tetszettek a képek. Nagyon szépen köszöni a kedves üzenetet. Tisztelettel: Éva (Thorsten felesége)
Hi Thorsten and Matthew. The hard part of getting a decent shot in New York City is finding a place that isn't already covered with photos and snapshots. You both do well with cityscapes so your comments are especially appreciated. Thanks.
the big city
Thanks for both the photo and the story. It's amazing the places where history is tucked away.
With Google Earth's earlier bias against nighttime shots apparently loosened, perhaps this image can now be included.
The photo shows a permanent installation (which has been there for decades) which can be freely seen year-round from much of Scranton. It has become one of the most iconic images of that city.
