Nike Radar Base
ORANGEBURG, NEW YORK
the 1950s and 60s, a ring of radar and missile-launching sites surrounded New
York City. Remnants of these Cold War sites can be found in parks, town dumps, and U.S.
Army Reserve Centers today. This Nike radar tracking station atop Clausland
Mountain in Rockland County overlooks Piermont and the Tappan Zee. Several
buildings are actively used today. More information about this site and the
Nike missile program in general can be gleaned from the Nike Missiles & Missile Sites
