English: Olcott is a hamlet (and census-designated place) located in the Town of Newfane in Niagara County, New York, United States 14126. Most locals refer to it as Olcott Beach. It is a lakeside community which is home to the deepest harbor on Lake Ontario west of Rochester, NY.

Olcott Light was built on a pier in Olcott, New York at Eighteen Mile Creek, named for being eighteen miles from the Niagara River. The light was no longer needed in the 1930s, and was moved to a local yacht club, where it resided until the early 1960s when it was destroyed. In the summer of 2003, a replica was built from old photographs.

In the background gushing rain over lake Ontario can be seen.
Nederlands: Olcott is een deelgemeente (en census-designated place) van Newfane in Niagara County in de staat New York. De bewoners refereren er naar als Olcott Beach.

Het ligt aan de oevers van het Ontariomeer en heeft de diepste jachthaven ten westen van Rochester, NY.

De vuurtoren was gebouwd op een pier in Olcott, NY, bij Eighteen Mile Creek, zo genoemd vanwege haar afstand tot de Niagara. In de jaren dertig was de toren niet meer nodig en werd hij verplaatst naar een lokale jachtclub. In de jaren zestig werd hij vernietigd. Tijdens de zomer van 2003 werd, op basis van oude foto's, een replica gebouwd.

Op de achtergrond ziet men een stortbui boven het Ontariomeer.
