The Little Red Lighthouse also called Jeffrey's Hook was a serving lighthouse until the George Washington Bridge was built. It served from 1880 to 1917 at Sandy Hook, New Jersey and then here at Jeffrey's Hook from 1921 to 1947. A part of the City Park Department, the Urban Park Rangers conduct tours of the lighthouse and includes food, reading the story called Little Red Lighthouse by Hildegarde Swift and the Great Gray Bridge by Lynd Ward and also take you to see pictures. The lighthouse stands on the point called Jeffrey's hook and close to the eastern pier of the bridge.
