Red Hook Container Terminal


May 12, 2007 -

The Red Hook container terminal is Brooklyn's last active shipping container port. It has been threatened with closure numerous times, to make way for waterfront development. The port is run by American Stevedoring and The Port Authority. In May 2007, Robert Guskind at The Gowanus Lounge wrote about "the city's plan to close the Red Hook container port and redevelop the waterfront for a variety of uses," quoting a New York Sun article which stated "the city's plan for the piers... is part of the administration's larger efforts to open up area waterfronts to the public, as the city creates a network of new esplanades, water taxis, and developments along the water's edge."
