Recently, we climbed up the leg of this 65′ (20m) landmark to its surprisingly roomy interior, built in 1881 as a real estate promotion on the beach. “Lucy” is located a few miles SW of Atlantic City, as seen from the “howdah” on top. Refurbished some years ago, it is both remarkable, and ….silly – but worth the visit.
Cick on any image for a closer look.

Amazing memory. Shortly after my Dad passed away in 1958 my Mom and her Sister, my Aunt, vacationed in Margate (City?) and I remember this “Beast”. Very cool Martin!
Steve: When it was restored, it was moved about 100 yards. But I too have a vague memory of the original years ago. 🙂
Hi Marty.. Wanted to go there for a long time and finally got there last week on the way back from Ocean City, NJ . I really enjoyed it and glad I finally got to see Lucy.
Hi Barbara! J and I were there on the 22nd, first time for both of us since we were kids. M:-)
Neat. I had never heard or seen anything of Lucy before this. I think I would enjoy visiting it, despite people being around.
