Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Exploration @ Abandoned Fort Tilden
Sun, April 30, 2017, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT
Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive exploration through the abandoned bunkers & batteries of Fort Tilden, a former WWI & WWII U.S. Army Coast Artillery Post, and Cold War Nike Missile Installation.
Led by a National Park Service Ranger, our private experience will include:
- A historical overview of Fort Tilden throughout the century, and the importance of its Rockaway Peninsula position.
- A look inside some of the hidden beachside military bunkers.
- A NYAC-only visit to Fort Tilden’s largest bunker named Battery Harris East, a historic gun site that once housed 70-foot cannons that could shoot 2,300-pound shells nearly 25 miles out to sea.
- A visit to the observation deck with sweeping views of New York.
