  • 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.
  • Lovely stop for a picnic with a little bit of inspiration from the Little Red Lighthouse! (:
  • I really had the mindset to see this Lighthouse and planed my trip using google maps for walking, Well the way was blocked by construction so asked local joggers a better way and the directed us a way that was almost an additional mile out of the way, the way back showed a closer one, pay attention.
