Fort Tilden

The 1948 Supreme Court case US v. Causby, states that the landowner “owns at least as much of the space above the ground as he (sic) can occupy or use, in connection with the land.” The video essay Fort Tilden considers this ownership of soil as extending into air and water, challenging this narrative by flying a kite on a private track of land.
