Nice historical site run by the park service so it is well maintained. Lots of history. Self paced tour was nice. Can get hot so be careful. Right on the boardwalk so plenty of places around to eat and drink.

The fort is a national treasure. Currently there are restoration activities which can add to your enjoyment if you are interested in discussions about architectural and building methods of the eighteenth century.

Yes, the story is in the Fort, and there is information also on a wall in the customs building across the street, where the information booth is. Quite an interesting story of young Alexander Hamilton! Much of the story... More
