  • Find out whether and when they will open the South Tower. I was pleased to climb both North and South Towers during the 2013 NJ Lighthouse Challenge.
  • Climb to the top of the North tower
  • Free admission
  • Knowledge & History
  • Nice view.
  • Watch out for large scary birds at night.
  • Great view worth the climb up.
  • Reminder: park closes at sunset.
  • Disappointing, beautiful bldg, one lighthouse open but tiny museum and flag part closed. Nice view and nice ride to the area.
  • Cool view of Manhattan and Brooklyn in the distance. Be sure to go up in one of the towers.
  • Good to explore
  • AMAZING view from the site and overall pretty cool place to visit. The view from inside the towers is even better. Definitely worth a visit. No admission fee
  • ok ho deniz feneri
  • There's so much history here. You owe it to yourself to visit. Maybe you'll learn something new.
  • A nice little educational, yet still fun day trip. Awesome view!
  • Best view from the top of the tower. Quick walk up. Quicker than most NJ light houses.
  • A have too see!
  • Great view from the North Tower. Activities for kids. Watch for oncoming traffic when leaving, the road is tricky.
  • Such a gorgeous view of The "Hook"
  • Well worth the climb to the top of the light - great views over Staten Island, the Verrazano Bridge, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island.
