West Point NY is a Hudson River cruise port and USA's oldest continuously occupied military base - since 1778 (initially named Fort Clinton). West Point Military Academy comprises approx 65 km2 (16,000 acres / 6500 hectares) including the campus.

West Point (New York USA) river cruise port

The military base is on the river's western bank. West Point NY has a population of around 7,000 and is part of the metro region of New York-Newark-Jersey. Fort Clinton's location was originally chosen because of the river's S-curve at this point. The fortification was manned by a small Continental Army garrison during the entire American Revolution War (1776- 83). In 1778, a large iron chain was laid across the river to block British Navy ships. Fort Putnam (on a hill overlooking the river) is in its original design and well-preserved. After the war, West Point served as a storage for cannons and other Continental Army property. The current US Military Academy as an institution was established in 1802.
