A Google Earth Tour of New York City’s Historic Forts

Janes Walk

Led By Stephen Albonesi, MAS

This tour will take you to several of New York City’s historic forts using the virtual experience of Google Earth. Along the way we’ll explore their history, strategic locations, and current uses. We’ll also virtually step foot inside several of these forts, allowing you to experience their architecture and design up close.

The walk will require a computer with a strong internet connection and sufficient processing power to support using Google Earth Web. Google Earth Web itself is fairly self-explanatory, but additional instructions will be provided on how to navigate the tool.
