Staten Island Light
New York, NY 10306
The Staten Island Lighthouse or the Ambrose Channel Range Light towers at 90 feet (27.43 meters) on Richmond Hill. This beautiful, octagonal shaped tower is made of bricks and has a gray rock base. It features a winding staircase which takes you to the watch-room. The keeper's house is located nearby and is designed in a similar way with spacious rooms. It is now a private home. The lighthouse still serves mariners entering the Ambrose Channel and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.
