Staten Island Light

The Staten Island Range Light (also known as the Ambrose Channel Range Light), serves as the rear range light companion to the West Bank Lighthouse. The 90-foot tower is located on Staten Island’s Richmond Hill (Lighthouse Hill) at a point that is 141 feet above sea level and over five miles northwest of the West Bank Lighthouse. It shows a fixed white light that can be seen for 18 miles (on range only).

It was designated a New York City Landmark in 1968 and remains a valuable aid to navigation for all ships entering the Ambrose Channel in Lower New York Bay. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.
