Cedar Island Lighthouse
Photograph - Epson Lustre Paper
Cedar Island lighthouse on Long Island, NY. Another example of the granite lighthouse structures built on the Atlantic coast of the northern United States. Cedar Island or Cedar Point marks a spit of land jutting into the Long Island Sound. The walk out to this light is about two miles each way, but is well worth the time spent. The first light at this location, built in 1839, was to guide ships entering the port of Sag Harbor. That wooden structure lasted until 1868 when this �Boston� style granite building and tower was constructed. Similar to a number of the Hudson River houses, the granite for this building came from Massachusetts.
