Built as a U.S. military fort in 1811 in anticipation of the War of 1812 against the British, Castle Clinton went on to serve a variety of roles.

Last of 5 forts built in NYC for War of 1812. Erected by students of Columbia University. Site of NY Aquarium until 1941. Now host to ferries to Liberty and Ellis Islands. More info avail via our blog

Before Ellis Island, immigrants went to Castle Clinton, America's first immigration station, that also used to be an aquarium.

Did you know before Ellis Island, Castle Clinton served as the Country’s first immigration center.

River to River Festival concerts here are wonderful!
