Forgotten-NY did a post of Erie Basin. It was the Brooklyn home to Isthmian / States Marine Lines.

It was also home to Todd Shipyards formally Robbins Dry Dock which dated back to the 1860's. The 140 year old graving dock was filled in to build an Ikea.

Fascinating. I was hoping for a photo when it was Isthmian with all of the ships lined up at the sheds.
