Meet Montauk Lighthouse Keeper Joe Gaviola, soon to be N.Y.’s easternmost resident

Brought to you by:

Once renovations are complete inside his new living quarters, Montauk Lighthouse Keeper Joe Gaviola will be New York’s easternmost resident. 

He’s the first new keeper of the light at Montauk in three decades, following in the footsteps of longtime keeper Margaret Winski.

We recently caught up with Gaviola to talk about his role at the iconic state park, as well as the history and allure of the property.

  • Enjoyed the video on the restoration of the lighthouse and look forward to visiting it when I make my trek to Long Island. It is a very special time each trip I make that I look forward to spending a little time and taking on the beauty of this site.
