The New London Harbor Lighthouse is located in a residential neighborhood with no direct public access or adjacent parking. It is prominent in the neighborhood skyline.

I've never been inside, but I have driven by plenty, and I always love to view this lighthouse. It is ion essence, what the area is all about.

Was a little upset that this could not be seen up close and personal. Had to view it from across the bay. Seems to be privately owned now and houses and a high fence have been built around it.

You used to be able to have an obstructed view of the New London Harbor Light from Pequot Avenue, but now it is surrounded by houses, a wall, fences and a beach, all marked private property. Since there is no access by land, the best...More

Was able to get a good view of this light by boat from the water with the Cross Sound Cruises. The light is privately owned, so not accessible from land.

Its hard to get good pictures of this lighthouse because you have to take the pictures from the road or a boat. It is not open to the public but still worth the trip to see what you can of it.

End of story! Had to drive down a ways in order to get a photo from a distance. The house near it looks pretty rundown from the road.

Photograph from boat if possible. I have been inside, long climb and good view. Now restricted by neighbors who were not part of the visitation agreement.

Another visit to New London Harbor Light this summer (2016) to check on its restoration. It is now complete with its tall, white frame thrusting upwards to remind passersby (pedestrians, mariners and motorists) of a remarkable history of guiding boats safely into the harbor. The...More

The light is actually on private property and difficult to see from the road. It’s best seen from the water. I recall some street parking in the area, but I think it was pretty limited. We took a short walk to see it, but... More
