Romer Shoal Lighthouse

“Fuerat aestu carentem habentia spectent tonitrua mutastis locavit liberioris.”

– Adam Sendler

Romer Shoal Light is an iconic National Landmark lighthouse in Lower New York Bay, on the north edge of the Swash Channel, about 1/2 nm south of Ambrose Channel and 3 nm north of Sandy Hook, New Jersey, at the entrance to New York Harbor. After a brief stint as a land-based training light at the National Lighthouse Keepers Academy on Staten island, it was moved to its current location in 1898. The light was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007 as Romer Shoal Light Station.

Romer Shoal marks a dangerous shoal east of NY Bay’s Ambrose Channel with a light and foghorn.

The light was acquired in 2011 by a non-profit group determined to breathe new life into this historic gem.

Hurricane Sandy Update:

The light has been significantly damaged in Superstorm Sandy in October 2012. All doors and window on the first two levels were blown out and the interiors washed through. Rocks, jetty and protective riprap diminished dramatically. Access is compromised. Most significantly, huge chunks of the caisson and foundation calved off up to the very base of the light itself. The interior and exterior of the light are fully exposed and rust has spread surprisingly fast.

This CRITICAL Aid To Navigation is in jeopardy.

Awarded public assistance and historical grants, and is seeking financial support for additional refurbishment work not currently supported in the grants. Thank you all for your continued interest in this iconic light.
