Virginia Woolf?

This evening, after a visit to West Islip, a detour beckoned... to the lighthouse!

I'd never been over the Robert Moses causeway and bridge before: it's the next bridge to Fire Island on the west after Smith Point.

The causeway road and the bridge were deserted: the vast parking lots, or "fields", closed except for one with just three or four vehicles. Desolate, empty, yet somehow sterile. I don't think I'd enjoy it summer-full of people: prefer the places that don't so many parking spaces.

What is that giant tower at the end of the causeway for? Is it military--there's a coastguard base on the bay side--or something from Mordor?
