Things to See & Do

The Visitor Center is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10 AM 4:45 PM, with exhibits, gift shop, 150-seat auditorium, restrooms, beverage vending machine, and a water fountain. It is closed on holidays except for Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day.

At the north end of the Historic Park, two overlooks command spectacular views of the George Washington Bridge, the Hudson River, and the skyline of upper Manhattan. Restrooms and a drinking fountain are available in season.

In the southern portion of the Historic Park, winding pathways lead past a reconstructed blockhouse to gun batteries and firing steps. Opposite the barbette battery, authentically recreated eighteenth-century soldiers and officers huts, with a well, woodshed, and baking oven, serve as the focal point for interpretive programs.
