The Sandy Hook Lighthouse (the oldest working lighthouse in the United States) stood about 500 feet from the tip of Sandy Hook, New Jersey, when built in 1764 by Isaac Conro. Today due to the shifting sands, it is now about 1 and 1/2 miles inland from the tip of Sandy Hook, New Jersey.

Originally called New York Lighthouse, the light was built to aid mariners entering the southern end of the New York Harbor.  An attempt was made to destroy the light house during the Revolutionary War and a subsequently occupied by British soldiers..

The U.S. Postal Service issued a 25 cent stamp, in 1990, featuring the Sandy Hook Lighthouse.
