This 1850 map of the City of Brooklyn produced by J. F Harrison and published by M. Dripps shows the Red Hook waterfront in transition.
Atlantic Dock has been built by this time but construction of the larger Erie Basin had not begun. Much of present day Red Hook is still under water.
The companies listed at Atlantic Dock are: United States Warehouses, Verplank Crane and Co, Ransom & Spelman, Lambeer & Chadborn, as well as the Hamilton Avenue Ferry and the Atlantic Hotel.
