I first heard of the lighthouse through reading the children's book, The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge by Hildegarde H. Swift. It's a charming, lovely tale of the lighthouse and the building of the George Washington Bridge.
When we got to the top of the lighthouse we were rewarded with a great view of the city!
As much fun as it was to see the lighthouse, it was just as much fun for the children to traipse all over the rocks along the Hudson River!
All in all it was a very fun adventure!
