Heswall, United Kingdom525 contributions345 helpful votes
Erected a year after the disaster, this 60-foot lighthouse was the first ever monument to those lost in the Titanic. It was built at the insistence of Molly Brown, a survivor of the sinking and was funded by public donations. To this day, it remains the only public memorial dedicated to all those who died in the disaster (other monuments commemorate individual victims, nationalities or professions). It originally stood beside the East River, atop the 13-storey Seaman’s Church Institute, but was moved to its current location in 1976. A small ‘park’ was created around it. The lighthouse is faded and peeling; its time ball (which used to drop down the pole at twelve noon each day) stopped working in 1967; and the garden is full of weeds. Whilst it does not warrant travelling a great distance unless you are a Titanic fan, it is worth a quick stop if you are in the South Street area, perhaps visiting the maritime museum with its historic ships or one of the many restaurants and bars.

Just a lighthouse statue and a few flower beds. Not worth traveling a great distance for. Good sight seeing around the area though.

We dropped our bike into our bike rental company and walked back to our bus while we met and acrossed this memorial lightinghouse. Was interesting to watch that, and deep inside we hoped that DiCaprio or Winslet turns at the corner hand in hand..... :) :) :) They did not do that :( :(

Not much of a park as it suggests but a small area in downtown Mahattan marking the memory of the Titanic as she was to dock in New York. Insisted by the unsinkable Molly Brown to be build in memory of those who died it is a nice piece of history in the middle of the city.

Wouldn't even have noticed it there even though it's a lighthouse in the financial district. The commemorative plaque is interesting though. If you're in the area, do go take a look. But don't bother to make the trip just for this, unless you're an inconditionnal fan.
