The Montauk Point Lighthouse is located at the Easternmost point of Long Island, New York in Montauk Point State Park. The light was the first lighthouse in New York State and is the fourth oldest active light in the U.S.A. It was constructed in 1796 and first lit in 1797. It has been automated since 1987. The light is owned and maintained by the Montauk Historical Society. My photo was taken in 2004.
