Explore Fort Tilden State Park: An Abandoned New York City

Explore Fort Tilden State Park: An Abandoned New York City”

A few of the New York City's extremely incredible attractions are hidden in plain sight, undiscovered by the public that either moves too quickly for people to see what's right in front of them or maybe don't have enough time to have a look.

There is a much incredible attraction in NYC but is now lying in complete rubble and remains. Amongst them is Fort Tilden State Park. But in the recent years, it had gone from an obscure stretch to a favorite destination among the beachgoers and lovers as well. 

Previously, the Park was a continuous stretch of sand as far as you can see of the NYC's Rockaway Peninsula. The wild dunes and the unkempt beach for the same are rare to find among the city of millions.

The Beach was closed since November 2017 to Memorial Day 2014. This was great news for the sunbathers and other adventurers who are too keen to get the access of the abandoned US military fortifications and other such nearby.

Most of the beachgoers didn't notice the real treasures of the former US Army Coast Artillery Post established in 1917. The weapons include 16" naval rifles, smooth-bore cannons, and Hercules Air Defense Missiles which become obsolete in the year 1974.

If you step few steps forward, you will get to see the blue rectangular concrete shell past the Beach. The shell is having an estimation of 10' height. On it are inscribed the verses of My Country Tis of Thee, i.e., a US Anthem that of the God Save the Queen!

If you want to get a view of the equipment and artillery in the shell, then you will need to climb up the ladder and go down to the concrete stand for the machine guns and other fighting equipment. There is a narrow eye level slit that allows having a direct access to the sea.

Thinking to trip NYC but don't have much finance? Well, there are many travel deals at CouponsMonk so that you don't burn a hole in your pocket while you are tripping NYC.

The WWII-version pillbox was specifically built so that they are able to defend the US from the invading enemy boats. All thanks to that the war remained at the same distance and was never able to conquer its edges. 

As you approach the boat graveyard, as its name is, there are about more than 100 extinct vessels that rest in the relative peace. Some are half sunken and many of them deteriorating and getting deteriorated. Wandering through this portion of the Park can be equally eerie and haunting, apart from being horrifying.

The ones which are described just above are the powerful ones behind very unstable forces. If you are unable to judge where you are proceeding for, get ready for some of the most imposing incidents like getting stuck out of nowhere, and lot more.

Not everything in NYC is completely hidden, there are some other structures as well that has not been explored yet. Perhaps when the Globetrotters start from scratch to rediscover all the historical wealth inside New York, they will get to uncover all that has been lying for years.
