Fort Montgomery Reviews

1 review
I have lived in Fort Montgomery for my entire life. It is located just outside the United States Military Academy at West Point. This has given me the opportunity to experience all different cultures and meet many new people. It is also beautifully located on the Hudson River and conveniently only a one hour drive to NYC.
