My mistake - The lightship is docked at Pier 66 Maritime
I always enjoyed seeing it when we used to take the Seastreak up the East River to Shea Stadium.

The theme was water. slip n slide palm tree sprinler water baloons water cup w hole on head relay Mother nature contributed with a summer rain storm for 15 minutes flooding the streets as guest arrived. LOL Things dried up as quick as they came. Julia, age 6 wants to be a meterologist. So when her helium baloons dropped to the ground and rose again as the air pressure changed, we had an unexpected science experiment! Her party at home upstate was BUGS with a scavenger hunt on their 6 acres. Needless to say, we gave her a weather station as a gift.
I think I did see it...but having trouble placing it. Maybe not, I just looked a that Museum by Gray Harbor9you were there), and the one near Point Fermin. So many lights, I'm not happy I missed a few I was near like Point Diablo, & this one!
Its hard with grandkids too far away. Paul has the right idea, just move closer.
In case anyone hasn't figured out just which lighthouse it is...here's the rest of the lighthouse. Nancy and I had the privilege of cleaning it top to bottom...at least dusting and cleaning all floors. So next time you are there, please don't track sand into my tower. ;)
You got it Bob. The people who had done (and continue) the restoration were very particular about harsh cleaning chemicals. Thats why you can still see the scuff marks on the stair risers. Everything was cleaned with just water and a smidge of simple green. Cleaning is a great way to get to know a lighthouse. We enjoyed it tremendously.
Wouldn't this have made a great Harbour Lights replica? The before picture I mean. I just like the proportions of this one, better than Pigeon Point. Twiggy was certain it had been made, but we checked his book and it wasn't there. I guess we will have to wait for the real thing. They are making progress!
I work at that steel mill, My current dept. has me about 7/10 of a mile from the light house. I am adding a screen shot from M.S. Streets & trips, S&t doesn't show the lighthouse or the breakwall but I put a marker for the light and my location in the mill (the black line is a s&t measurement)
