Saugerties Lighthouse stays closed

Saugerties Lighthouse keeper Patrick Landewe had hoped to have the lighthouse open for visitors, but with the coronavirus epidemic he has been unable to do so. In the meantime, many people are heading to the lighthouse, despite the notice on the website indicating it is closed. 

Mayor Bill Murphy said at the village board meeting of June 15 that Landewe has asked that the village place a sign at Main and Mynderse stating that the lighthouse is closed, to prevent the many visitors from coming by and upsetting the neighbors. The board agreed to place the sign.
