BROOKLYN CRUISE TERMINAL



History

Brooklyn's historic waterfront served as the gateway for the nation's goods and people for more than 150 years. Pier 12, developed just prior to the Civil War, has almost exclusively served as a cargo pier for all types of goods, up until 2005 handled ships laden with New York City's road salt being transformed into its newest luxury cruise ship terminal.
