I'm pretty sure it was east of Gilgo, in the area of the 4-wheel entrance now. Opposite what locals call Hemlock cove on the bay side, the ocean side had an old Coast Guard station. It was on the beach, I think some storms then a fire then some more storms did it in. Not sure if it had a light or not, but my bet is that's what you're thinking of.
Used to take my boat from Bellmore and surf there in the 60's.
West of Gilgo (actually west of Tobay was an old Jones Beach bath house, Field 9. They say storms did that in but I always though they closed it because of the sewer pipe that ran through it(conspiracy theory paranoia?). It also dissapeared in the late 60's or early 70's.
