In addition to what David has offered, please remember that Castle Garden has
had several names thru the years. It is also called Castle Clinton, after
Mayor DeWitt Clinton. In 1812 it was West Battery - originally built as a
fort to protect the harbor of New York.

back to 1993. Castle Clinton and Castle Garden discussions are also available
there and are very informative.
