Brooklyn Cruise Terminal

brooklyn cruise terminalThe Brooklyn cruise terminal is located in Red Hook, opposite Governors Island. The 180,000 square foot terminal can handle 4,000 passengers. The Brooklyn terminal complex includes a rebuilt building, new bollards and fenders, an internal roadway, a 500-car parking area, and taxi and bus drop-off areas.

From Coney Island to the Botanic Gardens, Brooklyn has a surprising number of attractions for cruise passengers to explore before or after their voyage. The restaurants of Brooklyn Heights, art in DUMBO, the Brooklyn Museum in the Slope, and the nightlife of Williamsburg are all part of the new Brooklyn charm. The Brooklyn Tourism office has a terrific tour guide to Brooklyn.
