Revolutionary War Heritage TrailAt the time of the American Revolution, travelers from Long Island boarded a ferry that took them across the Narrows to Staten Island near this point. In the summer of 1776, a British fleet commanded by Admiral Lord Richard Howe sailed up through the Narrows and prepared to attack the City of New York. On August 22, 1776, Lord Howe deposited the first of approximately 20,000 troops on the Brooklyn shore near the ferry landing. Their camps stretched east towards New Lots.
