  • Do the tour!! Appreciate the history. Beautiful walls for photography. Tunnels and canons.
  • No parking in Fort Totten; go find street parking in Bay Terrace before heading over.
  • The Fort Totten Pool employees are rude, disrespectful and extremely ghetto. They (men and women) STARE at women and young girls and use profanity loudly and carelessly. It is also very crowded.
  • Fresh air, the water, the bridge, all good!
  • This pool is disgusting!!!! Went there once, and caught pink eye. Not only that, it's over crowded and the lines are horrible. Not worth it, even if it's free.
