Fort Totten was built in 1862 and intended to defend the East River in tandem with Fort Schuyler, an earlier fort built in the Bronx at the mouth of the river and named after Revolutionary War hero Philip Schuyler, father-in-law of Alexander Hamilton. This route follows popular greenways in an out-and-back ride, from Little Bay Park into historical Fort Totten, then onto the Cross Island Parkway Trail by way of Joe Michael’s Mile. The route hugs Little Neck Bay and passes Crocheron Park en route to Alley Pond before returning on the same route to the start. The greenways are pancake flat and Fort Totten is very mild.
