  • 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.
