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.

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.
