Video regarding the loss of this lighthouse in 2005 with audio describing impact of this loss on those who depended on it, what this lighthouse meant to them and what lighthouses mean to others.

Thanks for those links Dave. The comments in the first one are very poignant. I am not a New Yorker but I get the same feeling the opposite way around when I watch a video we have of Bocelli's New York Concert on Ellis Island with the Twin Towers in the background. You sit there and look at them knowing they are no longer there.
