Description

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive exploration through the 156-year-old Fort Tompkins, an abandoned fort inside the Fort Wadsworth complex on the northeastern shore of Staten Island.

Led by a National Park Service Ranger, our experience through one of the nation’s oldest military installations will include:

  • An overview of Fort Wadsworth and its importance throughout American history.
  • An exclusive exploration of the many abandoned sections of Fort Tompkins, including the ammunition storage depot and iconic catacomb-like counterscarp gallery.
  • A visit to the overlook above Battery Weed, which sits at the base of the Verrazano Bridge.
  • Sweeping views of the Narrows of New York Harbor.

*Closed-toe shoes are required.

**A bottle of water is recommended as we’ll be on our feet for the entire time.

***While cameras are encouraged, tripods and other stationary photography equipment are not permitted on NPS property.
