The Hudson River splits into two channels around the island that is in the middle of the river. the lighthouse is at the southern end of the island. athens is on the west side of thr river a quaint little village. hudson is on the east side of the river an gentrified artsy village. allot of antique shops and upscale restaurants.

The Lighthouse is restored, and open a few times a year to the public! Small fee get's you a ride out to lighthouse, a tour, and one year membership! Well worth the time and trip! See their web page,for more details!
