Event description

Description

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.

*Please bring comfortable shoes and a bottle of water as we’ll be on our feet for the entire time.

**Detailed public and private transportation instructions detailed in confirmation email.
