Quick post tonight, just looking for an ID for this lighthouse! A couple of friends at work who know about my non-work life had had some friends visiting. Their were somewhere around Governor's Island (at least that's what I'd thought he said) and asking about a lighthouse that they'd seen. B. described the lighthouse as being visible from the ferry. I assumed that the ferry was the Staten Island one & Governor's Island was some sort of misunderstanding of locations of things in NY Harbor & made a very confident guess of Robbins Reef Light.
I was wrong! They'd taken a picture & this is it. First thing I thought was "That's definitely not Governor's Island" -
Anybody know this lighthouse? No prize, just appreciation!
Note slightly later - B. confirmed that this picture was taken from the Staten Island Ferry. I am wondering if the rolling green area could be the Liberty National Golf Course, but in the end, I remain baffled.
Note a few minutes later - AHA! Baffled no more! I was right with my golf course idea - just had the wrong course. 5 minutes on Google Maps, and viiii-ola!
