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.
