Fort Wadsworth, Staten Island, New York, United States

Abandoned Battery

One of my friends recently told my brother that an abandoned portion of Ft. Wadsworth had been razed and replaced with forest. Putting logistical impossibilities aside, I decided to investigate with my girlfriend. Of course, it was still standing. I've been aware of this section of the fort for about 8 years. It's massive, unlike the other abandoned sections, and has compartments to hold two massive guns poised to aim out over the narrows. The guns themselves have been removed, and the compartments themselves are filled with plants. The whole place has a very Angkor Wat feel to it.
