Week 6 – #1. A Fairy Tale

13 Comments

Welcome to the Little Red Lighthouse located alongside the Hudson River and underneath the George Washington Bridge. “A Fairy Tale,” entitled The Little Red Lighthouse And The Great Gray Bridge, was written in 1942 and I have always wanted to visit the lighthouse on one of my trips to New York. Because of this week’s theme, Mike and I made the effort to hike down the steep path in order to visit it. I am so glad as there were families with picnic baskets and little children with wide eyes and who I imagined had read the book.  The book is available through Amazon and would be a nice present for your children and/or grandchildren. If you plan to visit The Little Red Lighthouse, please note that we chatted with security, who told us it is not a safe place to be after dark.

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).

  6. For those wanting to visit the lighthouse, you can hop on the A train and get off at 181st Street in Washington Heights. Walk down two or three blocks to Riverside Drive where you will turn right. Cross over the walking bridge and follow the walking path down to the Hudson River. We found it easier to take the A train because parking is hard (near impossible) to find if you drive.
