Ruby Tuesday



Welcome again to Ruby Tuesday! Take a look at some of the thumbnails I collected over the last week of wonderful RT posts.

I was lucky to take a trip down under the George Washington Bridge this weekend to see the little RED lighthouse:






The Little Red Lighthouse (officially known as the Jeffrey's Hook Lighthouse) is a small lighthouse located on the Hudson River in New York City. It was made famous by the 1942 children's book The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge by Hildegarde Swift and Lynd Ward.

The Little Red Lighthouse stands on a small point called Jeffrey’s Hook at the base of the eastern pier of the George Washington Bridge, which connects the Washington Heights neighborhood in Manhattan to Fort Lee, New Jersey. The shoreline north and south of the lighthouse makes up Fort Washington Park. Access to the lighthouse is either via a steep footpath leading down from the north side of the bridge or, somewhat more easily, via the riverside promenade leading south to Riverside Park and Riverbank State Park.


~If any of you get back to sign in to Mr. Linky that would be find but don't worry if you don't.~

Ooh, I love the shot of the lighthouse with the lower span of the bridge looming overhead!

Here's my post, like yesterday's monochrome shot it's equal part photography and social commentary. Too many thoughts rattling around inside my brain to keep bottled up.

I've never seen a red light house. I love it :)

Leora said...

I think G6 had that lighthouse in her post last week?

Thank you for the link to my post, even though I don't see the pic?

Hope you are feeling better, too.

Felisol said...

Dear teach Mary,
what a wonderful red lighthouse, so well kept, so special in all the little details.
It must be a joy to both young and old.
I'm missing Mr. Linkey, but anyone wanting to visit; just click on my name and You'll be there.

I love the lighthouse! Perfect for RT :)

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I linked to Mr Linky and then it disappeared.

ellievellie said...

Very nice lighthouse - I like the person with the hat on the top - very intriguing :)

Sasha said...

I've always wanted to see a lighthouse up close. Unfortunately, we don't have much of that from where I come from.

Love the photos!

Adie said...

Makes me think of a romantic rendezvous :)

Here's my RT for this week.

Greyscale Territory said...

This is so cute! Unusual to say "cute" for a lighthouse, but this one is! Love the range of photos you took so that we can get a "feel" for the environment.

Here is the link to my post:

Mojo said...

There's another little lighthouse like that at the base of the Tappan Zee (sp?) bridge, that I caught on the way form Boston to Baltimore once upon a time. I think my favorite is the same one Robin's talking about -- the low angle shot looking up at the lighthouse with the underside of the span over it. Really like the vibrant rwed in that one. Adn the angle is perfect.

Since You didn't even mention Mr. Linky this week, I'm guessing you're having the same problems with him that everyone else is so here's my offering:
Ruby Tuesday #48: "Marrakesh Express"

And to answer the question that I just know will be on everyone's lips, no, I still haven't made it there.

Lovely lighthouse!

Patti said...

Hi Mary,
Love this RED lighthouse. I also remember seeing it on a post by G6, as Leora said. I like the perspective you used to get the photo.

I never heard of the children's book. My bad.

I so love lighthouses!!! This is great.

Have a great day.

Hildegarde said...

Lighthouses are interesting marks in the landscape, nice with the people on and around it. i'll be back for mr.Linky. I hope you're feeling better.

Rinkly Rimes said...

'The Little Red Lighthouse'.....it sounds like the title of a children's book. (Maybe he's a cousin to the engine!)

What a beautiful red lighthouse!

Here's mine . . .

If you haven't already, you just need to submit a ticket to Mr. Linky and ask them to move your account to the new server. :)

Ralph said...

I just love the G.W. Bridge. The style does not belie the brute strength of this 1931 edifice. So strong they added a lower level in 1962, so it is functional and stylish as well!

I have driven over the GWB at least 1,000 times and never knew about the lighthouse.

Jim said...

I like lighthouses but have never seen a red one. This is quite a find. I have never seen it down under the bridge.

BTW, what were you doing down under the bridge?

amanda said...

This is an awesome little light house I'll bet the photographing was as fun as the visit to it!

srp said...

Mr. Linky started working... sometimes it pays to be late. ;)
When my daughter and I spent two weeks in Brooklyn and NYC, we missed this.. and I am so sorry. It is so charming.

Chuchie Lopez-Wilks said...

I am late in posting mine but its better late than never hehhee..

Mo said...

I love lighthouses, and this one is fantastic.
It looks like it could be a sibling for the South Haven Pier Light in South Haven, Michigan.
I think it's wonderful that you're putting pics of previous Ruby Tuesdays up on your post. I admire that!
Mine this week is one of the very first pictures I ever edited when I went from a 'film' camera to a digital one (and never looked back!)
Cheers,
Mo

Cool thumbs and awesome lighthouse - I love the slide-show effect!

(...yeah, I'm that technically challenged!)

Lew said...

Great shots of the lighthouse and the GW bridge. I have always wanted to get down by the Hudson to take some photos when I cross the bridge and city - just have always been going somewhere with a schedule.
