Urban Park Rangers specialize in interpretation of historic turning points, both natural and manmade, in our city’s long history. The Jeffrey's Hook Lighthouse originated in Sandy Hook, New Jersey.

Swift with illustrations by Lynd Ward, published in 1942. Join the Urban Park Rangers as we open the doors and allow patrons to enjoy the views and sights on this mostly self-guided tour.
