Description

Fortified

Please join us for Fortified, a special weekend event at Fort Totten Park to highlight the under-appreciated significance of the Fort Totten Battery sites!

Fortified will offer visitors a series of temporary art installations and public access tours -- providing open access to the Fort Totten Water Battery and rare access to the Main Magazine and Endicott Battery sites.

“Fort Totten is one of the city's most spectacular hidden treasures. And, for one weekend, Fortified will provide open access to some of the most historic, fascinating, and beautiful sites in New York!!"

Fortified will be open to the public on Saturday (6/15) and Sunday (6/16) from 12pm-4pm -- with special events in the Main Magazine and Endicott Battery taking place hourly throughout the weekend.

Bring your dad to the event (either day) for a free chance to win tickets to summer tours and photographic prints courtesy of our organizing artist and media sponsors!

Please register for more event information.

Please email for answers to any additional questions.
