(Nortons Point) Lighthouse - March, 2001
I had the opportunity today to stop by the Lighthouse after a equipment demo
in the area.
Getting to the LH was fairly easy (Click to view map): Belt Parkway to
Stillwell Ave South Exit 6N, south to Neptune Ave, west on Neptune Ave to the end at a
guarded entrance to a private community. Now comes the fun part. Pull out your
Im a LH person business card and drop the lighthouse keepers name at the
gate (you can email me for the name at bob at scroope.net).
Now continue on Neptune to Surf Ave bear right and make a left on Beach 47th. Remember
its March so I parked right across the street on walked on to the property. Nobody
around, I had hoped to meet the 84 year old keeper.
Cruised into the amusement area back by Stillwell
and revisted my youthful pursuits Wonder Wheel, Parachut Jump, Cyclone
Rollercoaster, and Nathans. Nice morning, especially since there was no traffic, and the
112 mile roundtrip was completed including the exploring in 3 hours door-to-door.
Dont use these estimates for yourself!
