Montauk Lighthouse

Let's meetup and visit the easternmost point of Long Island where Montauk Lighthouse is located. Its the first lighthouse to be build within state of New York and is currently the 4th oldest active lighthouse in the United States.
We'll visit Montauk Point Lighthouse Museum, which include a 137-step and then we'll climb up the spiral staircase in the lighthouse tower, with a spectacular view from the top and also, we'll stroll around the landscaped property surrounding the structure.
So, during this day we'll get familiar with the “ultimate” seaside resort community at the tip of Long Island: we'll see three distinct areas: Montauk Village, the Lighthouse, and Gosman’s Dock.
For lunch, we'll select from a variety of restaurants, purchase a sandwich, or dig into home-brought food while relax on the beach.

Meeting time and place:
Meeting at 7:30AM on Saturday, September 7th at Long Island Rail Road Atlantic Station tickets booth
The Atlantic Avenue Terminal is located across the street from the Williamsburg Savings Bank, the tallest building in Brooklyn which has a large clock on each side of its tower.
You can take B, Q, N trains to Atlantic station or 2, 3, 4, 5 trains to Pacific station and walk toward LIRR ticket booth
I'll be waiting for you right there at 7:30am. My home phone:[masked]
Cell:[masked]

Gear and cost:
We have to buy LIRR getaway Montauk Lighthouse ticket
The cost of it is 48.50$. It includes the round trip, the cost of ticket to the museum and air conditioned shuttle buses to all sightseeing.
Check this link for more info:

Transportation:
We will take Long Island Rail Road Montauk Branch from Atlantic terminal in Brooklyn at 7:45am.  All of us either will be transferring at Jamaica station or taking train from Jamaica station and we have to board the rear car. Actually, no matter what car you board, the conductor will send you to the rear car. It's part of LIRR getaway deal.
The train from Manhattan (PENN station) will be leaving at 7:45am as well. The train from Jamaica station to Montauk will be leaving at 8:10am, but just in case you need to be there a little bit earlier.
Here it is a schedule: http://lirr42.mta.info/schedules.php

After all, you'll be visiting the place, which is reflected in Billy Joel's song
"Downeaster Alexa" from his album Storm Front.
This song tells the story of a Long Island fisherman's journey through Montauk Sound on his ship, named after Joel's daughter.

    Historical Montauk Lighthouse with its marvelous surrounding is one of the greatest sightseeing in New York state.

    This was an exceptionally pleasant meetup. A couple of hours on LIRR train ride took us away from the City into a beatiful resort town with the ocean and lush greenery. Walking on the beach, having lunch by the water and enjoying the impresive views from the lighthouse made this day remarkable and memorable. Thank you Mila for organizing another wonderful event, and the delicious treats you brought for everyone.

    I really wanna go to this! I'll join the group at Jamaica station at 8:10. The Woodside station is closer to me so there is no point in taking an hour train ride to Atlantic Terminal station

    Hi. My friend Rebecca and I are driving to Montauk from NYC. There is room in the car for 1 more (comfortably) or 2 more (less comfortably). If you are interested you will have to be in Marble Hill (near 225th Street and Broadway) at 8:30-9:00. We plan to meet the group at the Montauk train station. Reply here if interested.

    All of us either will be transferring at Jamaica or taking train
    from Jamaica and we need to board the rear car.
    Actually, no matter what car you board, the conductor will

    Hi. This looks like a great idea for a day trip. I am interested in attending. A couple of questions - what train from Penn Station would we need to get? And will there be a fair amount of walking and time to swim? (I need to get my exercise).

    September 5, 2013

    • Mila

    Hi! This is my first meetup with this group, and this trip sounds like the perfect introduction for me. Will it be a stroll, slow enough to enjoy the scenery and shoot photos? I'm an avid hobbyist-photographer. p.s. I'll be getting on at Penn station.

    1 · September 5, 2013

    • Mila

      Hi Lora, no doubt, we'll have plenty of time to shoot photos. There must be magnificent scenery.

    I might have to cancel at the last minute. Sprained my ankle on a hike & I was hoping it would heal by then. By the looks of it, it seems to be getting worse.

    Please, check track assignments and remember to board rear car at Jamaica station. Also when you'll buy LIRR getaway Montauk Lighthouse package you'll be given at least 3 tickets.
    All of them are very important. One is for LIRR and other for shuttle buses.
