New York City historically has been a hub for U.S. manufacturing. Many renowned companies like Procter & Gamble, William Wrigley’s Company, Bethlehem Steel Corporation, The S.S. White Dental Factory (which was the largest manufacturer of dental products in the world), Constanz Brewery, and many others have housed factories in Staten Island. These factories were responsible for the production of beer, milk, steel, some of the country’s favorite gum (Juicy Fruit and Wrigley’s Spearmint), and various other products. In this regard, Staten Island has played an integral part in the industrial revolution of the United States.
Staten Island’s unique geographic characteristics have also made it a prime location for U.S. military bases like Fort Wadsworth and United States Naval Base New York. Fort Wadsworth is one of the oldest military installations in the U.S. with construction dating back to the 1600’s. The fort was a natural defense point as it overlooks the harbor.
