The WPA undertook several projects to improve Bayside, New York’s Fort Totten during the 1930s and early 1940s. One project called for the WPA to repair and reconstruct buildings; improve the “water and lighting installations” as well as “sewer installation and other utilities;” and “improve the roads and grounds” at the base. Much of the grounds now serves as a city park.
