German Navy Ships at Pier 7

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.

    If the Germans have invaded the Heights, what’s next? Cobble Hill? Carroll Gardens?

    …or will they go the inland route by taking Downtown, Fort Greene and across Flatbush Avenue to Park Slope? And if they do take Park Slope, maybe we can actually find out where exactly the borders are!

    In case you havent noticed we have invaded Brooklyn quite some time ago. The ships just came to bring us our favorite supplies aka Bier und Wurst and new undercover agents.

    Does anyone if they will be open to the public for a day?
