Pumpkin House
16 Chittenden Ave

No, it doesn’t look like a jack-o-lantern, but certainly there are tricks AND treats to be had. This private one family home perched on an elevated pier tricks the eye as to how it was constructed in the 1920’s. The treat is the view of it, and surely from it, of the Hudson River. WAHI

Fort Washington Park at 178th St
New York
646 864 6426
Website

Dwarfed only by the behemoth George Washington Bridge under which it resides, this is the little red lighthouse that could. Though it’s lights have dimmed today, it serves as a beacon for tourist, pedestrians and cyclists seeking a landmark, meeting point and respite along their travels up and down the Hudson River.

The Cloisters Museum and Gardens
99 Margaret Corbin Dr
Washington Heights
212 923 3700

Thanks to the generosity of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. this museum and the surrounding Fort Tryon Park exist today for our pleasure. Formerly one of his estates he donated to the City of New York, The Cloisters is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art dedicated to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. It’s a great way to spend the day in upper Manhattan.
