Rent a Kayak or book a tour to check out this historic old castle in the middle of the Hudson River.
Francis Bannerman VI stockpiled old Spanish arms & munitions and sold them to civilians here until 1918. He owned so many guns he had them built into the walls all over the castle. In 1920 the whole place blew up (of course it did), but most of it is still standing. True story.
