The WPA undertook several projects to improve Staten Island’s Fort Wadsworth 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” at; and “improve the roads and grounds” at the base.
