Rondout Lighthouse . Hudson River . New York . Gouache . 12" x 16"
... the Rondout Lighthouse sits on a man-made peninsula, jutting out into the Hudson River at Kingston, New York.
At one time there were 14 lighthouses, of various shapes & sizes, situated along the Hudson, stretching from the Erie Canal, south to Manhatten.
Six no longer exist & one has been relocated. Presently, the Rondout Lighthouse is under the authority of the Hudson River Maritime Museum.
Interesting side fact... the Statue of Liberty, in New York Harbor, is classified as a lighthouse...
