Located under the Varrazano-Narrows Bridge offers a historic masonry fort with a nice overlook. Free to visit.

If you are planning to visit Staten Island with a purpose of finding great historical artifacts, don't. It is a great place for a picture opportunity. View of VNB from here is awesome.

A lot of people take the Staten Island ferry from Manhattan and then just turn right back around. It was worthwhile to take this side trip to Fort Wadsworth before returning to Manhattan. Unfortunately we were there a time that the visitor center is closed,...More

The sights at the old fort are quite nice, but it's when you look out over the Narrows and see the different views of the Verrazano Bridge, Brooklyn and the City that you realize this is truly a special place to visit

This is a perfect place to go if you want to see NYC from a distance. The Verrazano bridge is so beautiful over the water and all the ships in the distance.

Great area to walk or bike and the view of the bridge is exceptional, especially in the evening. The path also brings you to the South Beach boardwalk.

I’m not sure about where you would have a reception. There is a church where you could have a wedding, or you can do like my son did and just get married at the overlook with NYC and the Verrazano bridge in the background.

From the Staten Island Ferry, in St. George, take the S51 to Fort Wadsworth. Only takes 10-15 minutes by bus. Return via same bus. Fort Wadsworth also connects to South Beach/FDR boardwalk through foot path or via same bus... More
