Nostalgic Lighthouse

A Staten Island man has purchased the Romer Shoal Lighthouse off of New Jersey because he believes it's the first thing his grandparents saw upon immigrating to the United States. John Scalia paid $90K for the 54-foot lighthouse and will spend an additional $80K to rehab the property, which will eventually open for tours. [Crain's]
