This magnet celebrates not only Castle Clinton, but the whole of Battery Park, a green space within New York City that lies adjacent the harbor and towering skyscrapers. Castle Clinton was originally created as a fort to protect the city during the lead up to the war of 1812, just as Battery Park was created to house artillery to protect the Dutch city of New Amsterdam.
Luckily, Castle Clinton has never been used for its original purpose. The space has served host to everything from a beer garden, to theatre, to, famously, New York City's first immigration center.
This magnet uses earthen colors to faithfully represent the entrance to the sandstone castle. Gold lettering and a blue sky make the whole magnet pop!
