When people think of the city Bridgeport CT, typically their first thought is not lighthouses. However, the city is home to Fayerweather Island Light!
Fayerweather Island Light, also known as Black Rock Harbor Light, is a small lighthouse located in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The lighthouse sits on the south end of Fayerweather Island and marks the entrance to Black Rock Harbor.
The island and the lighthouse can be accessed from Seaside Park in Bridgeport, CT. It's best to park at the end of the park's road.
To access the island, you will take the rock levee. Be careful as you walk on the levee because there are some large gaps in-between some of the rocks!
The best part about this lighthouse is the fact that you can walk right up to it! It's always better to be able to view lighthouses up close!
