brooklyn army terminal

Open House New York, an annual event in the city, aims to showcase locations in NYC not usually open to the public (or open on the weekends to the public). Unfortunately all the things that I really wanted to see needed advance reservations, but there were still a number of locations that were new to me. One such location was the Brooklyn Army Terminal, original built as a military depot and supply base. The complex, designed by Cass Gilbert, is over five million square feet. Today, the structure houses a variety of businesses, but in 1958 was the send off spot when Elvis left for Germany.
