Sandy Hook Unit
The Sandy Hook Unit is located in New Jersey. There you will find Fort Hancock Historic Post, the oldest continuously operating lighthouse in the county, a former life-saving station and amazing beaches.
Staten Island Unit
The Staten Island Unit is made of three different areas, Fort Wadsworth, Miller Field, and Great Kills Park.
We have created several themes that allow you to explore Gateway through Google Earth. You can find a kayak launch spot in Jamaica Bay, find directions to Great Kills Park or learn more about the historic structures and fortifications within the Fort Hancock and Sandy Hook Proving Ground National Historic Landmark, which includes the entire Sandy Hook peninsula.
