Fort Wadsworth, part of the Gateway National Recreation Area, has guarded the entrance to New York Harbor for over 200 years and has the distinction of being the fort with the longest continuous military in the country. Visitors can explore the catacomb-like tunnels in the fort`s impressive battery, climb up to the overlook to enjoy some of the best views of the harbor and city, see exhibits at the visitor center, or tour the historic Mont Sec House to get a glimpse of the life of an officer at the fort in the 19th century.
