Fulton Ferry District is a national historic district in Fulton Ferry, Brooklyn, New York, New York. It consists of 15 contributing buildings built between 1830 and 1895. They are an assortment of commercial and commercial / residential brick buildings ranging from two to four stories in height, with one eight story building. That building is the Eagle Warehouse, a Romanesque Revival style building built by The Brooklyn Eagle in 1893. The district is bisected overhead by the Brooklyn Bridge and was the site of the terminus of the Fulton Ferry.[2] Today the area holds many popular attractions such as Pier one of Brooklyn Bridge Park, and Grimaldi's Pizzeria.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1]
