The 2.5-mile Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk extends southeast from Fort Wadsworth to Miller Field’s Gateway Recreational Area, parallel to Father Capodanno Boulevard. The boardwalk boasts one of the longest fishing piers in the city.
Once used as an Army Air Corps base in 1919, Miller Field is a great destination for visitors with a sense of adventure. The airplane hangars are still there today but not currently used. A Battery AMTB 11, a historical landmark, also rests there.
Fort Wadsworth is one of the oldest military sites in the U.S. Built along the high ground of the Narrow, this formidable structure has guarded New York City for over 200 years.
The 835-foot Ocean Breeze Fishing Pier is one of the longest in New York City. A shady gazebo, snack bars, and a restaurant dot this beautiful expanse that boasts fantastic views.
