    Blackwell Island Light

    900 Main Street
    New York, NY 10044
    Blackwell Island was also referred to as Welfare Island and thus the Blackwell Island Lighthouse is also referred to as the Welfare Island lighthouse or Roosevelt Lighthouse. It is a unique structure built in stone, and is placed at the northeastern tip of Roosevelt Island. The rough ashlars in its construction adds to it beauty. It is approximately 50 feet (15 meters) tall in height and was built out of gray gneiss. After being decommissioned in the 1940s, it was designated a city landmark in 1975. Over the years, it has gained a lot of historic significance.
