United States Coast Guard Station Eatons Neck is located on the northern tip of Eatons Neck on Long Island New York. It is the oldest Coast Guard Station in New York and the fourth oldest in the United States founded originally in 1849 by the New York Lifesaving Benevolent Association. Consequently, the Eatons Neck Lighthouse is the second oldest lighthouse on Long Island and the sixth oldest in the United States.
Since June 2013, Station Eatons Neck is commanded by CWO3 Mark Stauffer. BMC Adrian Agostino serves as the Executive Petty Officer, MKC Matthew Koll serves as the Engineer Petty Officer and SKC Anthony Duckworth serves as the Senior Enlisted Reserve Advisor (SERA). Station Eatons Neck has a complement of Active Duty, Reserves and Auxiliarists. The equipment consists of 41-foot (12 m) and 25-foot (7.6 m) boats along with a radio station manned constantly.
The Station stands watch over the middle portion of Long Island Sound from the Port Jefferson-Bridgeport line to just East of New York City and guards the City's back door maritime entrance as well as providing assistance to local boaters.
The Station has both family and UPH (Unaccompanied Personnel Housing) housing.
Eatons Neck Lighthouse is on the grounds of the Station.
