  • Military history in a unique setting. Everywhere on Sandy Hook is unusual and VERY enjoyable. Blacktopped hiking and biking path.
  • Joseph Foster was our guide and really gave us a detailed overview of Nike NY 56. We learned about the BOMBARC-B, deployment of Nike Missiles within US, NY Defense areas and Nike magazine sites. Very informative, energetic and easy to ask questions to. It really helped shed light on a such an important piece of history.
