Guardians of the Gateway: The Forts of New York Harbor

March 16 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Discover the fortresses that have defended New York Harbor!

New York Harbor is a classic example of how forts defended both the upper and lower harbors from the establishment of Fort Amsterdam by the Dutch in 1623 through the modern missile era of the mid-1900’s. Join us for a slide presentation from the Park Historian and discover how the different fort designs and their weapons evolved over the past 300 years, and that many of them still exist preserved by the National Park Service waiting to be explored.
