#TBT Liggett Hall was once the largest building constructed by the US military in the country, until the Pentagon was completed. Liggett was home to nearly 400,000 square feet of barrack housing, with a secret gymnasium atop its archway, home to lots of fun and games for Coast Guard residents, as pictured here in 1977. Join @openhousenewyork this Saturday and Sunday on @governorsisland from 10-4, when we open the Liggett gym to the public! No RSVP required. @govislandnps will also be open for urban explorers.
