Absolutely Absecon

Absolutely Absecon

Back in August, Jersey Iggy beheld the Absecon Lighthouse, located near the north end of the Atlantic City Boardwalk. It is said to be New Jersey's "second tallest lighthouse" with a height of 169 feet.

In existence since 1857, the light that shines from its tower no longer serves as a navigational aid, but visitors can still climb it for a small fee and view the historical exhibit at the mini-museum in the replicated 1925 Keeper's House down below.

Jersey Iggy couldn't help but notice how the nearby casinos have dwarfed this lighthouse! (Effectively defeating its purpose)
