Representatives from the National Park Service invited Photographer Richard Lewis, to photograph NY-56, a Nike missile site they are preserving in the Sandy Hook National Recreation Area in New Jersey. I also recently received permission to photograph an abandoned Nike missile site in Southern New Jersey called PH-58. With the Lumberton site, only the Radar, or Integrated Fire Control (IFC) was able to be photographed. This is where enemy bombers would have been tracked and the missiles launched to blow them up would have been controlled. All Nike missile batteries had a separate launcher area with an underground magazine for missile storage, launch pads, and buildings for administration and missile maintenance. Explore this interesting topic with Richard on April 10th at 7pm. There is no charge to attend. Although advanced registration is requested. For more information please email email@example.com.
