Remnants of Gunnison Battery

Gunnison Battery, a fortification built by the US Government to protect New York Harbor in the 1800s. Remnants of the battery, including gun emplacements, overlook the beach. It was once part of Fort Hancock, a test site and proving ground for the US Army for many years and was later the site of a Nike missile defense installation.


Its kinda sad to see it weathering out so bad :-/
