Little Red Lighthouse

There is a Little Red Lighthouse that sits right under the George Washington Bridge. Yup, it’s the subject of a children’s book. Built in 1880, it was moved to this location and later decommissioned when the lights of the bridge overwhelmed it. The site is not easy to access. Yet, everyone seems to know about it. I have known about it but have never visited until now. David and I biked along the Hudson River path. There’s a killer hill to ride up and out if you go north, which we did.
