Lighthouse openhouses run between 1 PM – 3 PM. Please note that by 2:45 we are starting to make preparations for closure, and no one will be admitted after that time.  The lighthouse can be accessed through Kingsland Point Park, Sleepy Hollow, which is adjacent to the Phillpse Manor Metro North Train Station. There is usually a per-car parking fee for entering Kingland Point Park. Folks interested in visiting the lighthouse should walk along the path around the former GM site to the lighthouse. The lighthouse is a 6-story structure, which was decommissioned about 1960 and once served as living quarters for its past lighthouse keepers. There are narrow spiral staircases that lead to the bell deck, which offers spectacular views of the Hudson River and Palisades, as well as the construction of the new Tappan Zee Bridge.

Bring your own lunch, if you wish, to enjoy at the park. There are picnic tables, a playground, and bathroom facilities (once then park opens for the season) at Kingsland Point Park.

Admission to the lighthouse is by donation. Suggested donations are $2/adult; $1/child over 5 years

Come dressed for the weather and in sturdy, comfortable shoes.

There may be a lot of walking involved.
