You've got to enter the park north of the bridge at about 181st Street, and walk down. The security car is a deliberate inclusion; Homeland Security won't let you include the bridge in a picture, so we were looking South.
Why did you comment your own photo?
Greetings 17zambre, I do that quite often if there is something about the picture or the place that I want to tell people. Many Panoramio photographers do the same thing.
This tiny lighthouse was featured in a children's book and many people have heard of it as a result. It is difficult to get to so I wanted to tell people how to do it. I hope you enjoyed the photo.
Hello Krokkas my friend. I'm glad you found this little lighthouse. It has an historical place in New York's folk history, and on a personal note, I used to live in that apartment house atop the Palisaides on the right (with the two roof structures) in Fort Lee, NJ. I also lived on the river bank, but my place is hidden by the Little Red Lighthouse.
Superb Lighthouse....Congratulations from Portugal...Muito Obrigado...Conquilha
Thank you Conquilha. It is a delighful little place to rest and enjoy the sights.
Great shot! I can NOT believe those idiots intentionally leave that car there. I used to drive to the base of the GWB back in the 90's but never took a pic of the Little Red Lighthouse although I DO have the book.
Their biggest concern was that I might photograph the underside of the bridge. Who's going to tell them that Google Earth already has a bunch of such pictures posted for public consumption. :-) Thanks for the compliment.
I grew up in the Heights and went down by the river under the Bridge often as a child and adolescent. The lighthouse was in disrepair at the time. Even went inside and climbed the stairs , remember it smelling foul aa in there. Nice to see it's been restored. Good memories, don't live in area any longer.
