Fort Totten

One last trip for the Thanksgiving Weekend. We took a quick jaunt over to Fort Totten and luckily ran into a tour of the Fort on a late November Day when the sky was unbelievably blue.

Fort Totten is a Civil War Fort on the north shore of Queens. The Discovery Channel made a Cities of the Underground program about a tunnel that supposedly runs from the Fort under the Long Island Sound to the Bronx, but the ranger giving the tour disputes that. Anyway the Fort has done an excellent job of protecting NYC from foreign attackers- no one has attacked from Long Island Sound since its been built.

And a last look back at the Fort from the parking lot
