“Lighthouse on the Hudson”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

When one thinks of a lighthouse one thinks of something rather tall and wide. This lighthouse is neither. It's almost cute. What they did in the old days is just amazing. If you are in the area, visit it. It is unique in many ways.

“Walk past the scary SuperFund site...”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

What is even more historical is the SuperFund site that you have to walk past to get to the lighthouse. It is the defunct GM factory that is contaminated with high concentrations of various heavy metals. We were FASCINATED by our first visit to the SuperFund site, and we recommend it. The lighthouse was just ok.

“Classic Lighthouse”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

It sits right next to the harbour and marina. Very impressive at night and has a long history. Did not have a chance to tour the inside.

“A Special Treat”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

If you have never visited a lighthouse you are in for a real treat with this one. You can only visit the grounds and go inside of the lighthouse on special days when they are running the tour. The lighthouse is inside a park so you can walk around the park & see the lighthouse from within the park but can not go on the grounds of the lighthouse. You can get some nice pictures from the park of the Lighthouse and the bridge.
