Future of iconic Staten Island Lighthouse in hands of those linked to its past
We'd like to share this article posted on SILive written by Dr. Gracelyn Santos - gsantos@siadvance.com. The National Lighthouse Museum and Esposito Family have combined forces to maintain the Staten Island Range Light
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- The iconic 1912 Staten Island Island Lighthouse, located on Lighthouse Hill, is under new stewardship, it was recently announced. 
The U.S. Coast Guard has entrusted the care of the lighthouse to the National Lighthouse Museum and the family of the late Joseph N. Esposito, who served as the caretaker of the lighthouse from 1992 until his retirement in 2001. 
Partnering with Elizabeth A. Campbell (nee Esposito) and the rest of the Esposito family, the museum will be responsible for the yard and tower maintenance. 
“I am so honored to say that the legacy of my father, ‘Lighthouse Joe,’ will continue through his children and grandchildren who will now care for the lighthouse as he did," said Campbell.
Esposito, who was dedicated to the preservation of lighthouses, died in 2005. 
Pictured above is the Esposito family along with Tina Cuadrado, curator of the National Lighthouse Museum, and Johnny Rivera of the U.S. Coast Guard.
