Harbor defenses for New York Harbor. Got a special tour of the fort with a National Parks guide. It was well-worth visiting. The photo opportunities are endless as you get a view over the harbor to New York and New Jersey. We wish more of the batteries were available to tour. We plan to go again when we can spend... 更多
I have been on several tours at the Fort at various times and find them to be quite interesting. Both the Fort and adjacent Battery Weed are historical landmarks which were obsolete by the time new armaments were installed such as the cannons.

Bring a camera. From the overlook, you can get GREAT pictures of the Narrows, the Verrazano bridge, and the inside of the fort. Fort Wadsworth was first used during the Revolutionary War, and one of the oldest military structures in the US

This is a lovely park on the north shore of Staten Island , the park is closed at dusk and there are no lights but during the day the views of Manhattan and Verrazano bridge are amazing here. I took the staten island ferry and afterwards a bus line with the metrocard (15/20 minutes) just outside the ferry port.
I bring all out of town visitors to this park. You need your walking shoes to explore the grounds. We bought our lunch and ate at the highest point overlooking the city. We even saw the Queen Mary sailing from the NYC pier that day. It's a must see. We drove our car there it's free.
What a welcoming community. We found it very easy to get around walking and using the city bus system. The Navy Lodge serves the purpose well. Within walking distance to restaurants and bus stops all around. Clean community.
