Overview

No votes yet

Fort Wadsworth is one of the oldest Military Sites in the U.S. It is built along the high ground of the Narrows and is a formidable structure that has guarded New York City for over 200 years. Fort Wadsworth harkens back to an era when New York Harbor was protected by seacoast fortifications. During the War of 1812, Fort Wadsworth was crucial in protecting New York Harbor from the British. When closed in 1994, Fort Wadsworth had been the longest active military site in the United States. Today it is managed by the National Parks Service and is open to the public as part of the Gateway National Recreational Area. Visitors everywhere are welcome to explore the former military stronghold, and see New York Harbor from the perspective of the countless soldiers who helped to protect it.
