Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Robbins Reef Light Station is a sparkplug lighthouse located off Constable Hook in Bayonne, New Jersey along the west side of Main Channel, Upper New York Bay. The tower and integral keepers quarters were built in 1883. It replaced an octagonal granite tower built in 1839. The U.S. Coast Guard owns and operates the light station. The light is located at the entrance to the Kill van Kull, a strait connecting to the Newark Bay. The channel is one of the most heavily used in the Port of New York and New Jersey, accessing Port Newark-Elizabeth Marine Terminal. The name is from New Netherland era in the 1600s. In Dutch rob or robyn means seal, groups of which would sometimes lie on the reef at low tide The structure is also called Kate's Light for Kate Walker who "manned" the station alone from the death of her husband Jacob in 1886 until 1919. She rowed her children to Staten Island for school. In 2009 Robbins Reef was put up for sale under the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act.
