14. Fort Schuyler

Fort Schuyler was constructed in 1833, on what is now the Bronx side of the Throgs Neck Bridge. During the Civil War, the fort housed  prisoners  of war. It was  decommissioned  in 1911 and became the home of  SUNY Maritime College (formerly the  New York State Merchant Marine Academy). In addition to the school, it currently houses the Maritime Industry Museum.
