 Fire Island Lighthouse 

40° 37' 53" North

Fire Island Light was an important landmark for transatlantic ships coming into New York Harbor at the turn of the last century. For many European immigrants, the Fire Island Light was their first sight of land upon arrival in America.

Location, Directions and Parking

Due to the unique location of the event, all guests will park at Robert Moses State Park Field 5 and walk to the Fire Island Lighthouse. Park in the furthest east corner and take the scenic footpath towards the lighthouse. 

Fire Island Pedicab will be available from 12pm-5pm.

This can be hired round trip to and from the lighthouse - pickup at Field 5. The pedicab will cost $10 and can hold 3 people per ride.


Car Service Instructions

 If you wish to take a car service, you will need to instruct your driver to drop you off at the Robert Moses Field 5 Parking Lot as taxi vehicles will not be allowed to drop off or pick up at the base of the lighthouse.

The Fire Island Lighthouse Preservation Society (FILPS) was formed in 1982 in response to the possible demolition of the Fire Island Lighthouse. The Society raised over $1.3 million to save and restore the Lighthouse.  The founding President was Thomas F. Roberts, III. On May 25, 1986, the Lighthouse was returned to duty as an active aid to navigation with a grand relighting ceremony.  On January 6, 2006, the light was privatized when the US Coast Guard signed over operations to the Fire Island Lighthouse Preservation Society. Volunteers now maintain and repair the light to ensure it continues to be an active aid to navigation. Learn more here
