Jones Beach Tower

Friday, 27th May 2005 by

This is the Jones Beach Tower, which was built in 1930, and was modelled on the campanile of St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice. It is 200 feet high, made of brick and stone, and houses a 315,000 gallon water tank for storage of water from four wells, each over 1,000 feet deep.

Update:

Wayne helpfully pointed out that I had actually shown a picture of the water tower at Robert Moses State park which is here:

Post updated, thanks Wayne :-D
