SURRENDER OF FORT WASHINGTON
Manhattan’s own major Revolutionary War battle, but very little known. Stand on the ramparts of the “Alamo of the Revolution.” Eighteenth Century military honor. Fort Washington Park, the George Washington Bridge, and the Little Red Lighthouse. How not to build a fort. Howe to take one.
Where: Meet at the south entrance of Fort Tryon Park, on Margaret Corbin Plaza, at the north end of Ft. Washington Avenue, in Washington Heights. Take the “A” Train to 190th St. and take the elevator in the subway station to the top of the hill.
