Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

National Lighthouse Day

In honor of the 200th anniversary of the commissioning of the first federal lighthouse, August 7th was designated National Lighthouse Day in 1989. There are beautiful lighthouses in the city where you can observe the holiday, but the most famous is surely Jeffrey’s Hook Light, far better known as “the Little Red Lighthouse” on the edge of Fort Washington Park on the Hudson River. You may also wish to visit the National Lighthouse Museum on Staten Island which has exhibits and cruises honoring lighthouses and light keepers throughout the year. Happy National Light House Day!
