Fort Hamilton Community Club

The Fort Hamilton Community Club, located in building 207 on Sheridan Loop, offers a week day buffet lunch and a Sunday Brunch. Special events, such as weddings, banquets, conferences and parties, can be planned with the assistance of professional catering staff. The beautiful building, setting just slightly uphill from Manhattan Bay, with a beautiful view over the Verrazzano Narrows, makes any occasion magical.

When you visit New York City, stay at Adams Guest House and dine at the Fort Hamilton Community Club. For more information, please call the community club at (718) 833-9772/9773 or (718) 630-1035/1036/4361.

The Fort Hamilton Community Club is housed inside the original coastal defense fort, a national historical landmark. According to records, on July 4, 1776, a small American battery on the site of today's Fort Hamilton fired into one of the British ships convoying troops to suppress the American Revolution. The forts at the Narrows held a British fleet at bay during the War of 1812, without ever firing a shot, and perhaps saved New York City from the fate of the Nation's capital, burned by invaders.

Fort Hamilton is also the home of the New York City Recruiting Battalion, the Military Entrance Processing Station, and the North Atlantic Division headquarters of the US Army Corps of Engineers. In addition, it supports many Reserve and National Guard units. In October 1997, Fort Hamilton came under the command of U. S. Army Military District of Washington.
