The only active military base in metro New York City, Fort Hamilton is located at the east side of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in Brooklyn. Fort Hamilton is very notable among other military bases given its historical charge of defending and securing the harbor of New York City, one of the world's largest and busiest ports. Additional services provided by Fort Hamilton include supporting the Military Entrance Processing Station, the headquarters of the North Atlantic Division, Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Army Reserve Center.
