If you live in New Jersey, you know lighthouses are an extremely important part of the culture — even Barnegat Light is featured on the shore license plates (and is one of the most photographed places in New Jersey).
You may even be an expert on them, considering the yearly lighthouse challenge that a lot of photographers partake in.
So you may be excited to know that there are actually 14 lighthouses here in New Jersey — 11 on land, and three off-shore. Here is more about them.
This off-shore lighthouse is located in South Jersey on the north side of the Delaware Bay in Cumberland County — right on the border of Delaware waters.
Constructed in 1913, it is one of a series of shoals along the eastern side of the shipping channel, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
This off-shore lighthouse is also located in South Jersey off the coast of Cape May Point in Cape May County — again on the border of Delaware waters.
First constructed in 1828, this lighthouse has been renovated and retrofitted several times. It works in tandem with the Miah Maull Shoal Lighthouse as part of the same shipping channel.
With a good eye (or maybe a boat), this lighthouse could be seen from Higbee Beach.
This off-shore lighthouse (pictured above) is on the border of New York and New Jersey in the Raritan Bay in South Amboy (Middlesex County).
Photographers can get a good look at it from Raritan Bay Waterfront Park in New Jersey or from Conference House Park in Staten Island.
