What is the use of the wire at Chania Lighthouse? Is it an antenna for a navigational transmitter working in the longwave range?

Thanks. Nice to see them. I'm able to see different styles in the towers in the countries. I'm very curious what' s the talles in the world.

That one at the Bronx is really strange! Little thing on a higrise building?

And that 6th of Greece looks like a scale model.

This quote fom the HW Wilson website pretty much explains about the little lighthouse on top of that building, and it was once light again in 1998 for the centininial celebration of that place.

"At the top of that building, he placed a 30-foot lighthouse resting on a book to symbolize the mission of the company: "To give guidance to those seeking their way through the maze of books and periodicals, without which they would be lost." The lighthouse is a familiar landmark today, and as the company logo, still symbolizes its mission."

Someone could probably write a novel about the lighthouses of NYC.
