Yahoo Map of Old Nike Missile Base, East Hanover, NJ

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


This is the site of the old East Hanover, NJ Nike Missile Base. It is now gone, covered by condominiums. The streets in the center of the map are where there used to be a bunch of missile silos. If you look off Nike Drive, toward Hornung Road, these now-abandoned homes were once soldier's homes.

The Nike Missiles at this base had small nuclear warheads and were intended to prevent Soviet bomber squadrons from hitting NYC.

When I was in my teens, we used to pry open the doors to the silos and walk down a long flight of steps, right into the elevator room. Off to the left was the control room, which was soundproofed.
