This isn't just a city of skyscrapers, brownstones and industrial complexes.
Scattered throughout all five boroughs you'll find forts and castles from another lifetime. Some were constructed to protect the great New York Harbor from enemy attacks. Others were built as miniature fortresses for the police patrolling on horseback when Brooklyn still stood as its own city. And a few are just for fun.
