Keeping it Local: Fort Tilden

We covered a whole lot of ground this Memorial Day Weekend, but visiting Fort Tilden at Jacob Riis Park was definitely a highlight. Getting out there is a full-on commitment. And a couple of us (ok, this chick) were a bit skeptical of whether or not it was worth the trek. Some convincing, paired with the allure of a ride in Erin's car, gave me slight reassurance. Overall, the day was an extremely solid one well spent. 

The abandoned structures of Fort Tilden give off some straight-up American Horror Story vibes, which I find totally awesome. They're completely covered in cryptic graffiti that makes you wonder who's spending their time there. Commit a day to sipping some rosé on the beach before exploring the creepy ruins. You won't regret it.
