EAST BROTHER LIGHTHOUSE
lighthouse is a never-ending task. The keepers of old were
nicknamed "wickies" because of all of the time they spent
trimming the wicks of the oil lamp so to keep the light strong
and bright. While the old oil lamps are now history, the work of
the lighthouse remains constant.
