I've seen the fort from the Verrazano Bridge and decided to drop in to see if it would be worth while to take Scouts to. It appeared that theNational Park Visitor Center wasn't yet open to the public - soon I hope. And the information...More
This is a lovely park on the north shore of Staten Island , the park is closed at dusk and there are no lights but during the day the views of Manhattan and Verrazano bridge are amazing here. I took the staten island ferry and...More
Inside the grounds of Fort Wadsworth sits Fort Tompkins, overlooking the harbor and Battery Weed underneath it. It's equal parts historic, architecturally stunning and creepy. We recently went to a special program there hosted by the Alice Austen House and it was s great venue.
I bring all out of town visitors to this park. You need your walking shoes to explore the grounds. We bought our lunch and ate at the highest point overlooking the city. We even saw the Queen Mary sailing from the NYC pier that day....More
What a welcoming community. We found it very easy to get around walking and using the city bus system. The Navy Lodge serves the purpose well. Within walking distance to restaurants and bus stops all around. Clean community.
For history buffs, Ft. Wadsworth goes back to Revolutionary days. Battery Weed is especially cool
For tourists, the views of the Verrazano Bridge, and the NYC skyline are beautiful. Look up the schedule for walking tours ... well worth your time and shoe leather.

There are great views and a lot of history, I have been to Fort Wadsworth several times and never has it been overly crowded which is really nice. It's a very peaceful and relaxing enviroment. I love to bring my guests from out of town...More

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
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 line. Bus and ferry run 24/7 so no problems getting back.
