Mar/Apr 2014

A unique view of the north tower at the Twin Lights of Navesink taken from the south tower. The Twin Lights are located in Highlands, New Jersey. The Lights were the first American lighthouses to use Fresnel lenses (1841), the first to use kerosene as a fuel source (1883), among the first to be electrified (1898), and was the site of the first public reading of the Pledge of Allegiance.
