Twin Lights Lighthouse, Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey
Holga, ISO 100.
This isthmus runs 127 miles south from here, just a few miles south of Battery Park, New York City. This is the northern point of what may be the most defining element of New Jersey geography: the Jersey Shore. From here, beginning with Earle Naval Weapons Station, which is where the Navy does heavy weapons rearmament (some say with the heaviest weapons of all: nuclear missiles) and the Department of Homeland Security's defense and Coast Guard station on Sandy Hook to the gaming tables and depressed streets of Atlantic City and the remote cottages and interstate ferries of Cape May.
