Fort Hancock at Sandy Hook
Fort Hancock in Sandy Hook was a military fort which operated from 1895 until 1974. The fort played an important part in defending New York harbor and New Jersey, especially during World War II and the Cold War.
The fort is on the Sandy Hook Bay side of the barrier spit of Sandy Hook, surrounding the iconic Sandy Hook Lighthouse.
