Fort Wadsworth located on the northeastern tip of Staten Island at end of Bay Street, adjacent to the Verrazano Bridge. Easily accessible by either bus or taxi, prepare to take a journey through time as you bear witness to one of America’s oldest and most historic military installations.

Taking a tour of the fortifications provides an exceptional look at part of the critical system that protected New York Harbor for centuries. You may walk through its catacomb-like passageways and see what it was like to be a defender in the 18th Century.

The new visitor center provides background information about the site's history and strategic location in New York Harbor. Self-guided and ranger-led tours of the historic fortifications are available.

Drag the street view to look around 360°.
Use the arrow buttons to navigate down the street and around the neighborhood!

There are no events taking place on this date.
