We happened to go on a day when the lighthouse was closed so we had to get our view from Kingsland Park. The park was quite nice with some very nice views along the Hudson. It would have been nicer to actually walk up to/go inside the lighthouse.

This lighthouse takes a walk from Kingsland Point Park. They have special days when the Light is open to the public, and you can walk right up to it. Go to lighthousefriends.com for information. The park is very lovely, being right on the river, but it gets very full sometimes.

Google maps told us to go to Kingsland Point County Park in Sleepy Hollow to see the lighthouse. It cost $4 to park in the big park which was nice and pretty. But the access to the lighthouse is closed so we could only see it from a distance. We did see other people out there but think they got... More

This is located adjacent to where the Old Tarrytown General Motors Plant was located. A great view of the Hudson River. A nice location to pay a visit.

We hunted for about 20 minutes before finally finding a street from which to view this tiny lighthouse. The lighthouse, in spite of what the website and tourist literature may say, is not open to the public. Our only view, from quite a distance, was through a high fence and weed filled lot.

My girlfriends and I made a trip out to Tarrytown this past weekend. When researching things to do here, the lighthouse came up. We drove to Kingsland Park and parked ($8 parking fee for non-residents). Walking along the river, we reached a big gate that said the lighthouse was closed. There was a callbox next to the gate, but it... More

As a huge lighthouse fan, I'll go out of my way to see one. This one is actually easy to get to, and even though it was technically closed the Park Ranger told us to crawl through the fence and go up to it. You couldn't get in or climb up, but you could walk over the bridge to the... More

The weathered lighthouse is beautiful as is the nearby park. The few dollars it costs to enter the park with a car is not a burden, especially if you plan to stay a while. The park is not huge but it has several nice areas for picnicking and a respectable playground area. It seems the gazebo and other sections of... More

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.
