Ft Wadsworth and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge

This is a re-take of a shot I posted back in 2009.

Five image vertical stitch.

 

Underneath the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge lies one of the oldest military sites in the

United States – Fort Wadsworth.

Fort Wadsworth is a former United States military installation on Staten Island (New York City), situated on The Narrows which divide New York Bay into Upper and Lower halves, a natural point for defense of the Upper Bay and Manhattan beyond. Prior to closing in 1994 it claimed to be the longest continually-manned military installation in the United States. It's now part of the National Park Service - Gateway National Recreation Area.
