The Little Red Lighthouse is a small lighthouse located under the George Washington Bridge in Fort Washington Park in Upper Manhattan, New York City. The lighthouse was built in 1880 and was originally located on Sandy Hook, New Jersey. It was moved to its current location in 1921 and was made famous by the children's book "The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge" by Hildegarde Swift. The lighthouse is now a popular tourist attraction and is open to visitors on weekends from May through September.
