  • I guess the kids love it because of children's stories, but for me it was nothing special. A little curious with its red color under a big looming bridge.  more »
  • The lighthouse where you can see this is not grunge I here is very good. But some of the old paint is required, such as seemed though the antiquity is now worth so much as the old one. This place is. .. It really is a place for a peaceful feeling.

  • Exactly what the name says. A somewhat relaxed atmosphere always arises when one sits down near it. This spot can be a tad romantic as well. For first timers it could possibly be hard to get to.
  • This is a cute little landmark, and it's fun to run to if you are running along the Hudson. Read "The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge" before you visit, it will make the whole thing more nostalgic.
  • I used to hang out under the bridge while at the nearby tennis courts.....I think I was one of the last kids to sneak inside and climb up before the Parks Department "secured" it. I've always loved this area. Hard to believe you're still in NYC/Manhattan. On the water and rocks.....I've taken everyone of my girlfriends over those years to sit on the rocky face just up North past the bridge.....They all loved it.
  • We hit that pass the last time upon a bicycle tour in fall 2009. Had a wonderful time pedaling along the Hudson river trail.
  • Great hidden location in NYC to relax and watch the sunset.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
