Numerous stacks, towers, and amusement rides, including a red steel parachute tower 303 feet high, are prominent on the island. Coney Island Light (40°34'36"N., 74°00'42"W.), 75 feet above the water, is shown from a white square skeleton tower on Norton Point, the westernmost extremity of the island.
