Today mariners rely more on sophisticated electronic navigation systems and less on lighthouses to guide them safely into port. The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to all the remaining lights in the waters of New York Harbor, the Hudson River, and Long Island, and show their diversity.

MidAtlanticLighthousesHudsonRiverToChesapeakeBay.JPG Mid-Atlantic Lighthouses Hudson River to Chesapeake Bay Mid-Atlantic Lighthouses Hudson River to Chesapeake Bay. Our nation, when in its infancy, owed much of its prosperity to light-houses, which were constructed thanks to the unwavering vision of President George Washington. When he first swore his oath of office, only a dozen lights safeguarded our coastline. Within ten years, that number had more than doubled. Maintaining the general's spirit, Mid-Atlantic Lighthouses takes readers on more than just a regional tour; it traces the beginnings of our country and the role lighthouses played in that drama. Built in 1797 under direct orders from Washington, Long Island's Montauk Point Light provided countless immigrants with their first sight of America and has become a lasting symbol of freedom. Descriptions of forty-nine lighthouses (and four lightships) include, for lights open to the public, driving directions and details on visiting. Together with striking photographs and regional locator maps, these profiles offer a comprehensive examination of awe-inspiring Mid-Atlantic landmarks.
