The effort to conduct an archeological dig on the Fort No. 2 site continues…

I created this landing page, which contains all of the news stories about the fort including the latest NY1 report:

https://kingsbridgehistoricalsociety.org/fort-no-2-a-k-a-fort-swartwout/

I have written to our elected representatives to ask for help negotiating with the owner and developer.  Again, we are not looking to stop or impede construction–simply to study the site with an archeologist before construction destroys what remains.  If you wish to reinforce that message, feel free to write to them as well:

Jeffrey Dinowitz: dinowij@nyassembly.gov
Andrew Cohen: District11@council.nyc.gov
Alessandra Biaggi: biaggisched@nysenate.gov

I truly cannot understand why the owner and developer are so reticent to let an archeological dig happen.
