At some point, the waterfront in Williamsburg was thriving. Ships would unload cargo for the also-thriving factories in the area. Some of the warehouses and factories farther away from the water actually had tracks for freight cars that delivered goods from the river. The area is soon to be thriving again, through the construction of yuppie riverfront extravaganzas. It's coming.

From Kent Avenue, in the shadow of the Williamsburg bridge. The factory has its own loading dock, and boats would pull up with their cargo.
