Roosevelt Island Lighthouse (Roosevelt Island, New York) - built in 1872. This 50-foot-tall Gothic-style lighthouse is not an official Coast Guard lighthouse, but it was commissioned by the city. The lighthouse’s purpose was to “effectually light” the nearby New York City Insane Asylum for boats navigating the treacherous Hell Gate waters.

My blog speaks for me. Drop of me in a sea of dreams.... I like the smell of earth , the touch of waves, the taste of berries, the sight of trees, the sound of laughter, and feeling of being fully alive. I want a love that consumes me. I want passion...
