Hudson River Lighthouses with Kevin Woyce

The Hudson River's first lighthouse was built in 1826 at Stony Point. By the early 1900s, more than a dozen lights guided ships past the river's islands and shallows. Seven of them still exist.

Join author and photographer Kevin Woyce for a virtual tour of the Hudson River's lighthouses, past and present -- from the long lost lights at Coxsackie and Stuyvesant to New York City's beloved Little Red Lighthouse. Discover how and why these lighthouses were built, and hear the stories of the brave men and women who kept them shining. This program is illustrated with original photographs of Hudson River lighthouses and landmarks, plus vintage images of historic people, places, and events.
