Fort Worth is situated on Staten Island’s east shore and offers a unique blend of spectacular views and New York City history.
Small town comfort and big city convenience combine to make Fort Worth an amazing place for renters and visitors alike. The neighborhood, nestled between St. George and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, is a treasure trove of historical landmarks and beautiful landscapes.
Fort Worth also has an overabundance of culinary delights. Classic diners serve up egg creams and burgers with 50’s rock n’ roll flavor. Mexican spots offer up the best guacamole in Staten Island, and Cajun spots dish out gumbo and jambalaya like you left NYC and entered New Orleans.
Fort Worth’s most prominent landmark is Fort Wadsworth, a Revolutionary War stronghold that’s guarded the entrance to New York Harbor for over 200 years. It’s distinguished for having the longest military use in our country’s history. Fort Wadsworth protected our shores until 1995, when it was opened to the public as part of the neighborhood’s Gateway National Recreation Area. Today it serves as the starting point for the New York City Marathon. Explorers can roam its numerous tunnels or climb the battlements to experience one-of-a-kind panoramic views of the city.
Nearby is Alice Austen Park, which contains the former home of Alice Austen, one of the country’s first female photographers. Her former cottage, deemed a National Historic Landmark, is open to the public and reveals not only a look into classic New York, but also into the fascinating legacy of this pioneering woman. When she wasn’t snapping photos, Alice was a landscape designer, documentarian, master tennis player, and the first woman on Staten Island to own a car. Outside the house, stick your feet in the sand on beautiful Buono Beach and gaze over New York Bay.
Fort Worth is seconds away from the Verrazano-Narrows bridge, with access to New New Jersey and Brooklyn, plus numerous bus options to get you to and from Manhattan.
