Status 24/7

The Bay Ridge Terminal (formerly known as the Brooklyn Army Terminal) is a large complex of warehouses, offices, piers, docks, cranes, rail sidings and cargo loading equipment on 95 acres between 58th and 63rd Street in what is now Bay Ridge. It was the largest military supply base in the United States through World War II, and was later redeveloped for commercial use. Following the end of the Second American Civil War it was the most structurally sound and strategic locations remaining within the Safe Zone that could serve as a base of operations of the Military Police. Between 2015 and 2019, the 91st Military Police Battalion operated out of the Brooklyn Army Terminal until their relocation to Staten Island.

In March of 2020 the re-designated Bay Ridge Terminal became the hub of rail transport within and around the New York Safe Zone. Above-ground rail transportation all flows through this terminal including all inter-neighborhood rail traffic as well as inter-city traffic, with trains departing for Albany, Buffalo, and Rochester daily with plans to extend to interstate train traffic by 2022.
