We have been invited to join the Northwestern Queens Paranormal Research Consortium with their investigation of paranormal activity that occurs at Fort Totten in Queens, NY.
This meetup is FREE and open to all members and their guests.
Anthony of The Queens based paranormal research group, Seekers Club of the Paranormal (SCP), will speak about paranormal investigations and The Urban Park Rangers have agreed to open up the historic fort for a night time walk through. So bring your equipment, curiosity and support for Anthony for great evening in a truly spooky setting.
Fort Totten is a former U.S. Army installation located in Queens, NY. County, It is located on the north shore of Long Island, on a peninsula named Willets Point. Fort Totten is at the head of Little Neck Bay, which is also the place where the East River widens to become Long Island Sound.
Construction began on Fort Totten in 1862 after the land was purchased by the U.S. Government in 1857 from the Willets family. The original purpose was to protect the East River approach to New York Harbor, along with Fort Schuyler, which faces it from Throgs Neck on the opposite side of the river entrance. The fort was named in 1898 after Joseph Gilbert Totten.
