Fort George

Near park On the rise

Named for a Revolutionary War era fortification, Fort George is truly an epitome of American independence.

In 1776, the American army fought off the Red Coats from Fort George after the pivotal battle of Brooklyn, allowing safe passage for General Washington and his troops to escape to New Jersey and Westchester. It is actually one of five forts built by the Americans with the name Fort George.

Descriptions of 552 West 188th Street

15 minutes from midtown, this is a place where families have BBQs in the park, where neighbors laugh on sunny stoops while the ice cream trucks roll by, where cyclists and joggers take advantage of river paths and foodies feast at new restaurants which pop up every year. If you can shoulder a 6th floor walk-up to pay 750 a month per super bright room looking out over the NY skyline, this is a KILLER deal at a great place. Aaron Kinney (Sep 2014)
