Henry Hudson explored the river that now bears his name in 1609.

From 1826 until the middle of the 20th century, more than a dozen lighthouses guided ships past its islands and shallows.Join author and photographer Kevin Woyce for an illustrated tour of these historic lighthouses, from the long-vanished stations at Stuyvesant and Coxsackie to New York City's beloved "Little Red Lighthouse." Discover how and why these lights were built, and meet some of the brave men and women who kept them shining.Illustrated throughout, with original black & white photographs and vintage images.
