Untapped Cities Insiders are invited to explore the abandoned structures at Fort Totten Park before the park is open to the public. Insiders will have access to the 1867 Water Battery Fort which was abandoned and never finished. Here, on a self-guided exploration, Insiders will be the very first to see a new art installation by New York City artist and Untapped Cities contributor Aaron Asis and a guided theatrical experience by Untapped Cities’ Chief Experience Officer Justin Rivers. The installation, Fortified, includes a series of over-head corded installations that will weave through existing structural passages to encourage visitors to observe and appreciate the structural nuances of the Battery. There will also be a series of wall markings that highlight specific details, variations, and anomalies within the Battery structure. River’s Dark Passage will take place in the fort’s completely dark Main Magazine. After this self guided experience, where Asis and Rivers will be on-hand to chat about their work, Insiders will get to go on a ranger-led tour of the Endicott Battery, an off-limits ruin that is usually closed to the public.
