Lighthouse of the Week, August 21-27, 2016: Orient Point, NY (The Coffee Pot)

Did you know that Long Island, NY, has 24 lighthouses?

Neither did I, until I looked at this map:  Lighthouses of Long Island, New York

I looked down the list, and thought that Orient Point (The Coffee Pot) looked intriguing.  It turns out that the lighthouse itself isn't the most photogenic (hence the nickname), but location, location, location:  it can still make some great photographs.

Here's more about it (it was built 1898-1899):  Orient Point, NY

It is currently privately-owned.

A map, and then three nice pictures are below.
