Tower for Tracking Radar,
Nike site NY-80C, Riker Hill Art Park, Livingston, NJ.
Two tracking radar towers of similar design are located at the southern portion of the former Nike IFC (Integrated Fire Control) area atop Riker Hill in Livingston, NJ. The radar antenna and its motor were supported by the central concrete column, while the external steel framework supported catwalks for maintenance of the unit and an access ladder. These towers are similar to the towers erected at numerous Nike installations across the continental United States.
