Prison Ship Martyrs' Monument Special Resource Study

Public Law 113-291, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015, authorized the Secretary of the Interior to conduct a Special Resource Study regarding the national significance, suitability, and feasibility of the Prison Ship Martyrs' Monument located in Fort Green Park, Brooklyn, New York for potential designation as a unit of the national park system. The study only analyzed the Prison Ship Martyrs' Monument and associated landscape including the upper and lower plazas and connecting staircase (including crypt). The remainder of Fort Greene Park was not part of this study. Based on the analysis conducted during the study, the NPS concluded that the Prison Ship Martyrs' Monument does not meet the criteria to be eligible as a new unit of the national park system. The completed study was transmitted to Congress for their consideration in February 2022.
