Defending Gotham
Nike Missile Defenses of the
New York Metro Area, 1954-1974

Nike Battery NY-03/04
Mt. Nebo/Orangeburg, NY

Located only a few miles west of the Hudson River, the Orangeburg Nike site was one of four six-magazine "double" Nike sites constructed within the New York metro area. At these double sites, two standard three-magazine sites were constructed side by side, effectively doubling the site's capabilities. Because the two missile batteries shared a common facility, land acquisition costs and the costs associated with developing the necessary infrastructure could be reduced. Site NY-03/04 remained operational through the closure of the nationwide Nike system in 1974.
