Background Information on the 'Lange Jaap'

Quote from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lange_Jaap

"...Lange Jaap ("Long James"), also known as Kijkduin Light or Den Helder Light, is an active lighthouse near fort Kijkduin in Huisduinen, Netherlands. At a height of 182 feet (55 m) it is one of the tallest "traditional lighthouse" in the world.[2] For almost a century, from 1878 to 1974, it was the tallest lighthouse in the Netherlands, until the construction of Maasvlakte Light.

According to The Lighthouse Directory it is the tallest non-skeletal cast iron lighthouse in the world. That may be the case if the height is as specified in that source (63.5 metres (208 ft)). However, if the height is 55.5 metres (182 ft). As stated by other sources it is the second tallest, Cikoneng Light being 190 feet (58 m).[3][4]

The site is open and accessible. However, due to safety concerns the tower has been closed to the public since 1998...."

We are live for the 80th time now

So don't hesitate and show us your lighthouse works today and let's rock it.
#LighthouseThursday No. 80

Post one of your lighthouse shots today and let's celebrate the 80th #LighthouseThursday .  Any image of a lighthouse counts, wether it's a staircase, lense or lightshot or a great view of a lighthouse at day or night, go out shooting or search your archives and share your work today.

The image is a re-share for my New York album and shows a lighthouse at the Hudson river with a great view to Manhattan, although you can't see the peninsula in this shot. Ok, it's located in New Jersey and not in New York and maybe it's not real lighthouse, but doesn't it look quite real and is very close to New York ? ;)
If you have any images of real lighthouses in Manhattan, share them today and show me what I missed.
