8. Brooklyn Army Terminal

The Brooklyn Army Terminal, located in Sunset Park, was once the largest military supply base in the United States through World War II. Designed by Cass Gilbert, the complex was completed in 1919, and remained in operation until the 1970s. In 1981, the federal government sold the site to city, which began leasing the property to businesses. Today, it is filled with warehouses, offices and other commercial establishments, and continues to undergo new renovation.
