1) Brooklyn Army Terminal



1) Brooklyn Army Terminal
front_of_army_terminal.jpg
Front, or shore side of the Brooklyn Army Terminal. Could you imagine the Army allowing such a garrish sign to be displayed back in the "good ol' days? Absolutely defamating! Ugh! I guess this was Building "A". The other building ( see below ) was Building "B".
I think the "Deceiving, and Screwing ( Receiving, and Crewing ) branch was in Building "B"...it's been so long.

Entrance to the Brooklyn Army Terminal at the foot of 58th Street. Otherwise known as the New York Port of Embarkation, many entered these gates never to return home again.
 
bldg_one_bart.jpg
A wide view of Building "A" from the new "uncovered" Pier 4. Note the dark relec to the right, probably Pier 3. The Transports used these piers to load troops, and cargo for transport to theatres of war around the world. It's all no more, being used for public pleasure now.
 
bart_pwr_house.jpg
Panning to the left of Bldg "A", we see the familiar Powerhouse.
A view like this was impossible years ago, as the pier at that time was a covered pier. One would have to have been on the upper decks of a transport to catch some of this view.
