One of the nice things about getting out early is that I get a copy of the A.M. New York, the free daily that’s distributed at most subways as people make their way to work. So, the most interesting bit of information in yesterday’s edition was that the Little Red Lighthouse Festival takes place on Saturday, October 6 from noon to 4 p.m. The link above will take you to that website for more details.
The Little Red Lighthouse is the last remaining lighthouse in Manhattan and it’s also the title lighthouse in the book The Little Red Lighthouse And The Great Gray Bridge, by Hildegarde H. Swift and illustrated by Lynd Ward.
This is how it looks from Riverbank State Park…
…well, you can see it a little clearer from the park.
To get to the lighthouse, we walk along the banks of the Hudson River. I love looking at these leftovers from an old dock. Lest you think New York City is only a human’s tourist destination, take a gander at these fine-feathered visitors! There are many tantalizing views of the Great Gray Bridge along the way. Finally (Mom, are we there yet?) The Little Red Lighthouse!
