I haven't played this in a few years, so I don't remember exactly where the game puts these two forts. I hope they're in the right place.
They should essentially flank the George Washington bridge that will be built in a different century. The Hudson is about a mile wide at this point, so to control it you would need emplaced cannon on both banks.
Fort Washington was located in what is now Fort Tryon Park and has spectacular views of the cliffs and the Hudson river. You have to walk through it if you're visiting the Cloisters by subway, and two of its more charming features are a floral garden and an extended family of groundhogs who come out to munch on clover in the afternoon sun.
Fort Lee sits on the New Jersey side of the George Washington bridge. Fort Lee boasts one of the largest Korean populations on the East Coast and is the site of a huge Asian shopping mall (Yaohan plaza), an essential source of foodstuffs if you aren't lucky enough to live within walking distance of Chinatown. It recently rose to national prominence as the scene of New Jersey governor Christie's Bridgegate scandal.
