About Fort Totten NY:

Fort Totten is a former United States Army installation in the New York City borough of Queens. It is located on the north shore of Long Island, on a peninsula. Fort Totten is at the head of Little Neck Bay, which is also the place where the East River widens to become Long Island Sound. While the U.S. Army Reserve continues to maintain a presence at the fort, the property is now owned by the City of New York.

Construction began on Fort Totten in 1862 after the land was purchased by the U.S. Government in 1857 from the Willets family. The fort is close to the Queens neighborhoods of Bay Terrace, Bayside, Beechhurst and Whitestone. The original purpose was to protect the East River approach to New York Harbor, along with Fort Schuyler, which faces it from Throggs Neck (also known as Throgs Neck Briodge) in the Bronx on the opposite side of the river entrance. The fort was named in 1898 after Joseph Gilbert Totten.

In 1954, the fort became a Project Nike air defense site. Although no missiles were located at Fort Totten, it was the regional headquarters for the New York area; administrative offices and personnel housing was located at the fort. By 1966 the forts was home ot the headquarters of the 1st Region, Army Air Defense Command. Fort Totten was also the headquarters for the 66th Anti-Aircraft Missile Battalion, Battery D, whose missiles were located at nearby Fort Slocum on Hart Island. Headquarters of the 41st AAA Gun Battalion was also stationed here. 90MM cannon Batteries of the 41st were located throughout Long Island. Reliable rumor has it, as well, that Fort Totten was the locale of the safe house where Joe Valachi (Genovese family mob turncoat and subject of a later book “The Valachi Papers”) was hidden away in 1970 until taken away to a Federal prison in Texas where he died in 1971.
