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.

Seeing that you can get much better space in a newer building with better amenities for a whole lot less money and still be 15 minutes from midtown, the secret is becoming the standard. Justin DiGiulio (Apr 2014)
Public transportation (1, A, subway lines ) is close by and steps away is great shopping on Broadway including Starbucks, Gristedes and many other restaurants, shops and entertainment. The building is located steps away from gorgeous Fort Tryon Park and The Cloisters, as well as scenic bike and walking paths along the Hudson River. Daria Campbell (Jun 2011)
Lovely, well maintained pre-war bldg, with spacious, renovated apts, hardwood flrs, hi ceilings, modern appliances and fixtures and good closets nearr 'a' train and inwood park. Well-maintained walk-up building, voice intercom, quiet residential street close to transportation, restaurants and shopping. Raquel Ruiz (Sep 2014)
Outside of its bustling core, this neighborhood’s lushly forested park and local salt marsh resonate with low-key crowds that prefer a pastoral stroll rather than a power walk. No evening will be complete without a walk down Dyckman Street to visit many bars and cafes like Corcho Wine Room or Dyckman Bar. Allan Jimenez (Jun 2014)
