Brooklyn Waterfront Past & Present
Tour 8 miles of Brooklyn’s waterfront industry-past and present–from Newtown Creek to Sunset Park.
From Newtown Creek through Sunset Park, the 8 miles of Brooklyn shore facing the Harbor’s Upper Bay were once filled with manufacturing, shipping, and commerce. Though apartment towers and landscaped parks now capture attention, Brooklyn still retains active trade and maritime business.
