Berlin Wall in Stony Point

Location: Stony Point Courtyard

1 segment

Stony Point, 10 kilometers south of West Point and about 60 kilometers north of NYC, played in important role in the fight for independence: In a night in July 1779 Continental General Anthony Wayne and his men attacked a British fortification located on the peninsula at Stony Point. The peninsula, situated on the west bank of the Hudson River, was of strategic importance. Stony Point now calls itself We’re revolutionary.

It can be assumed, that a Berlin Wall segment was set up in this spirit in front of Stony Point’s Courtyard more than 200 years later. Further details unknown.
