Brooklyn Army Terminal

During the Second World War, the Brooklyn Army Terminal processed about 85 percent of U.S. supplies and troops for the war effort and employed 10,000 civilians. In the 1980s, the Brooklyn Army Terminal was converted by the City of New York to a rental facility for industrial and commercial businesses.
