Camp Hero, Montauk, Long Island, New York.
This area is littered with the remnants of old Army, Navy and Air Force installations. These 600-foot-long tree-covered bunkers are from World War II.

An Air Force radar station from the 1950's.

Early on (before the big radar thing) the base was disguised as a little New England village. The gymnasium was supposed to look like a church.

Much of the area is now part of Camp Hero State Park, which opened in 2002. The military no doubt hoped that opening it up to the public would help kill the rampant conspiracy theories surrounding the site. It doesn't seem to be working.

The last one is a ghost sign that surfaced when a newer sign was removed from a now-vacant storefront. It has confused at least one Chowhounder. See also 01.07.
