Mr Monkey in New York, February 28

"I'm not sure a lighthouse would have helped the Titanic much"

Mr Monkey on Schermerhorn Row Mr Monkey in front of the Titanic Memorial lighthouse

Mr Monkey had a look down Schermerhorn Row, a recently renovated 1812 building, then inspected the Titanic Memorial lighthouse. Mr Monkey wondered what use a lighthouse two blocks inland would be, but apparently it was originally on the roof of the Seamen's Church Institute, until they moved. It was originally built by public subscription, as a memorial to everyone who died when the Titanic hit an unnamed iceberg in 1913.
