fort lee

borough (town), Bergen county, northeastern New Jersey, U.S. It lies mainly along the Palisades on the west bank of the Hudson River at the western terminus of the George Washington Bridge opposite upper Manhattan, New York City. The community developed about 1700 around Fort Constitution (later renamed Fort Lee). The Fort Lee Battle Monument marks the site of the fort, which was abandoned in 1776 during the American Revolution after an unsuccessful attempt by General George Washington to stop the British fleet from sailing up the Hudson
