    By Public Transit to the Terminal

    The Red Hook neighborhood is not well served by public transportation. Travelling by metro, bus and all other options to travel to the cruise terminal require changing to a bus and walking 4+ blocks. We would suggest not to use public transit to get to the cruise terminal.

    The best option is to take a cab, charter bus or limo/sedan.

    We offer you a variety of hotels, motels and apartments near the Port of Brooklyn, so you will always find the best solution for your cruise vacation.

    New York is unlike any other city in the world. From the quiet in Central Park to the bustle of Times Square, the Big Apple is full of iconic architectural landmarks, amazing views, museums and cultural venues.

    Brooklyn is connected with Manhattan by 3 bridges: Williamsburg, Manhattan and the world famous Brooklyn Bridge.

    In Brooklyn visit the Brooklyn Museum, one of the largest art museums in the United States. Nearby Brooklyn Bridge Park offers really fantastic views of the Manhattan skyline.

    Far beyond the bridge are the upper floors of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. A must see is the Green Wood Cemetery. Tour guides will provide stories of the famous people buried here.

    Historic Heights Promenade is a wonderful spot to stroll, sit and watch people and boats going along the water. In the distance is the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the first stop in the past of so many immigrants. A fun thing to do is to walk the Brooklyn Bridge at night and see the lights of Manhattan.
