We were driving this area and decided to check out the Twin Lighthouses. Great climb to the top and the views were beautiful.....even saw the NYC skyline. We had a clear day and enjoyed looking around this area.

Weather was rainy and foggy but this is a cool place to visit. Would have been better on a clear day but the lighthouse was super cool!
