jeffrey's hook light

aka
 the little red lighthouse 


sits
 beneath the martha washington
 which is what some of us
 call
 the lower level 
of 
the george washington bridge

 :::rimshot::: 

ahem 

very recently
 my friend melissa and i 
set out to find the lighthouse

 you know 
if it 
had
 been missing
 i think
 we'd have had a better chance of finding it 

we knew where it was
 we used melissa's gps 
but 
once we got 
'there' 
we discovered
 we were still 
a long way
 from
 the actual lighthouse

 so 
we improvised 
we went to the cloisters 
to ft tyron park
 had lunch al fresco
 took some photos
 then 
drove down to the upper reaches of riverside park 
parked 
walked along the river



 lucky for me 
i brought my 300mm lens

 a 600mm would have done a better job

  1. Look at that tiny little red thing underneath that enormous bridge! I bet that once upon a time people looked up at the light house and said something like, "look at that enormous red light house."

  2. Quite a neat lighthouse.... but really dwarfed by the bridge!

  3. Fascinating, As you know from my comment on FB, I didn't recognize one of the most famous bridges in the world. Duh. I never knew there was a lighthouse there. Duh, again. Thanks for showing it to me.
