The location for the lighthouse provided by google.com was completely wrong. It directed us to a neighborhood. It was only when we went to dinner at the Tavern did we locate the lighthouse. We drove around and were not able to find the access to it. We even double checked the Sleepy Hollow web site for directions but were unable... More

It was a sunny day in January that we found this park and lighthouse. It was wonderful. You could see the Hudson and all of the barges and construction going on. They are rebuilding the Tappan Zee Bridge. If you looked up the Hudson you could see NYC. It was very nice.

This light house is right by the water and has some good views. Nothing is fancy and lighthouse is very simple and you need to go to Sleepy Hollow to access it. Surrounding areas are very deserted and don't look well maintained. This area need some attention for landscaping.

Signage to lighthouse not clear. We wound up in park with a long walk to lighthouse with no guarantee it would be open. No people around, no visitor amenities, park nearby had locked bathrooms. Go in summer, not fall :-(

It is pretty cool as far as lighthouses go but am not sure I would travel to Tarrytown just to see it. Maybe a good stroll in nicer weather and a way to work off a meal you just had. Apart from that, pretty standard lighthouse stuff.

We had a chance to visit this lighthouse and I must say, what a great spot. While it was a little hard to find (follow the concrete wall around the old industrial site) once there we were able to get some fantastic shots of the lighthouse, both during the day and at sunset. The backdrop of the Tappan Zee Bridge... More

I was excited to see the lighthouse on the other side of the abandoned and or construction private property lot. Saw a sidewalk, my hopes of seeing the lighthouse up close . Wrongo!! Good luck attempting to even get a picture from the walk along the water, without fences and overgrown brush. It was very disappointing to be so far... More

Went to Kingsland Point Park on a rainy weekday in October. Entered off Palmer Ave near the Train Station and no one was collecting entry fees due to the rain so we got a free glance at the lighthouse. Probably would be a nice park during the summer with picnic areas and a playground. Didn't walk too far due to... More

Don’t bother. If the lighthouse is pretty, you’ll never know. For us, it was almost impossible to find (GPS sent us initially to an abandoned parking lot), the area was blocked off, and yet there was a $4 entrance fee to scour the area close to but not within visual contact of the lighthouse. At first (after returning from the... More
