    This is a great area to visit. It has the oldest operating lighthouse in North America - Sandy Hook Lighthouse. There are also various exhibits throughout the area on life saving.

    Fort Hancock Proving Grounds is here - and it is rather disturbing at how little the government has done to preserve them. There is an effort to refurbish more of the buildings. I hope they do - it would be a great benefit to the park and to New Jersey.
