Default New York Cruising Recovers from Sandy

New York Cruising Recovers from Sandy
by Paul Motter

It has taken a Herculean effort to keep New York running as a cruise port - post-Sandy

New York Cruises Sail on!

As we all know, the Brooklyn borough of Red Hook was hit especially hard by Sandy. The neighborhood is situated right at the point where the East River meets the widest part New York Harbor adjacent to the Statue of Liberty. Red Hook is also the site of the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal which was developed and opened for regular cruise business in 2006.

The Red Hook docks have been there for decades, so it was never uncommon in the last century to see cruise ships docked there for repairs or stowage. But in 2004 it was decided to develop the terminal as an active cruise terminal alternative to Manhattan for ships like the Queen Mary 2 which at over 150,000-tons makes it very difficult to battle the Hudson River current and dock in Manhattan.
