Guided tour of the Brooklyn Army Terminal
Live narration in English
Explore this massive former military base and transportation hub on Brooklyn’s waterfront. Reinvented as a center of manufacturing and innovation for private businesses, the Brooklyn Army Terminal is the perfect place to investigate New York’s industrial prowess.
In front of the concrete Brooklyn Army Terminal, which was constructed during World War I, meet your guide and take in the harbor views of Manhattan. As you walk through these historic warehouse spaces, hear stories about the soldiers, merchant mariners, and longshoremen who worked the piers and rail yards here during the Port of New York’s rise and subsequent decline in the 20th century.
This storied facility was a major military supply base through World War II, and the wide-open, light-filled atrium of Building B—where freight trains once loaded cargo from the innovative cantilevered balconies—gives you an idea of just how much activity this space once saw. And it’s bustling once again, as the industrial park boasts more than 100 businesses, in industries ranging from biotechnology to furniture making to high-end chocolatiers.
