Lea, I did want to mention that Pam Setchell has done an amazing job organizing the fest, and also the preservation of the light as well. All of us who work in Huntington Harbor are proud of ourLighthouse. Marinas have donated docks for the event, and SeaTow Huntington is lending a hand as well. Capt. Mike Langenbach is offering 2 of his boats to run supplies out there. All in all, us "Huntingtonians" care about our waters, and look Sunday being a great day!

FYI, some have dubbed the Huntington Light as "The Sandcastle". It's a very impressive structure, and an amazing piece of the maritime history that long Island has to offer!

Hey There,

You guys should write a blog about what it was like when you first joined News 12 back in 1886, was it? Show some pics, who were the original anchors, reporters - how was it different from today?

Just a thought for a blog :)

Lee,
As a lifetime resident of Huntington Bay and boating since I was 4, there is an important fact you should share with your viewers. CHECK THE TIDES! On the south side of the lighthouse, there is a large rock jetty that is not visible at high tide. It stretches from about 50' south of the light to the beach. Vessels need to keep in mind the channel markers! Many boats have twisted props, shafts, and even torn off keels. Let's keep it safe. See you out there!
