Henry Hudson Pkwy. and W. 179th St., New York, NY , United States

North of Harlem and on the western edge of Washington Heights, Fort Washington Park extends from West 155th Street to West 179 Street. Once home to a Revolutionary War structure built for the Continental forces and later seized by the British, the spot now features baseball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, a dog run, and a playground. Jeffrey's Hook Lighthouse, immortalized in the children's classic The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge dates from 1880 and was moved to its current spot (at the base of the George Washington Bridge) in 1921.
