1 Bay St., Staten Island


The Staten Island Coast Guard Station was ceded to the City about 20 years ago. The site, which had been in use since 1778, included 22 buildings, and was historically known for the invention and manufacturing of lighthouse equipment. It is appropriate, therefore, that the site is intended to become the National Center and Lighthouse Museum.

This administration building is an individual New York City Landmark. It is also listed on the National Register, as are an office building and a Lighthouse Depot Complex. There are also a number of interesting and venerable warehouses on the site. With its prominent location on the North Shore next to the ferry, the site could become an asset to the community and a draw for tourists.

The Administration Building was designed by Alfred Mullet, the architect of the splendid ‘Old’ State Department Building, now the Executive Office Building, in Washington, D.C. The building is in poor condition and will need a good deal of restoration.
