Germany’s naval might is on display at Pier 7, near the foot of Atlantic Avenue. As seen from the Promenade today are the Deutsche Marine combat support ship Frankfurt-am-Main on the north side of the pier, and the frigate Sachsen, whose conning tower can be seen in front of the legs of the distant Red Hook Container Port gantry, on the south side. More photos after the jump.
