The low-lying building in the background is Battery Weed of Fort Wadsworth, scene of the last shot fired at the end of the American War of Independence.
"…The last shot of the war was reportedly fired on this day, as a British gunner fired a cannon at jeering crowds gathered on the shore of Staten Island, as his ship passed through the Narrows at the mouth of New York Harbor. The shot fell well short of the shore.[2] " See more info at;
