Howland Hook Marine Terminal
The Howland Hook Marine Terminal is a container port facility located in northwestern Staten Island in New York City, 4038.3'N, 7411.3'W. It is situated on the east side of the Arthur Kill, at the entrance to Newark Bay, just north of the Goethals Bridge. Along with the facility at Red Hook, Brooklyn, it is one of the last large container port facilities within New York City.

The facility is owned by the City of New York and has been leased by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey since 1985. The Port Authority currently contracts with New York Container Terminal Inc. to operate a container terminal on the site. The original facility is 187 acres (757,000 m) in size, but it is undergoing expansion with the acquisition in 2001 of the adjacent 124 acre (502,000 m) Port Ivory, a former shipping port operated by Procter & Gamble. The renovation project has also proven to be controversial, as it has led to the terminal becoming the focus of a federal investigation into alleged Mafia influence over the port.

The port has a ship berth that is 3,000 m (914) long on the Arthur Kill. The berth is 42 ft (13 m) deep for a 2300 ft (701 m), and 37 ft (11 m) deep for the remaining 700 ft (210 m) of berth. It handles 412,000 square feet (38,000 m) containers and includes deep-freeze, refrigeration and United States Customs Service inspection. It has an on-site intermodal rail connection for shipping across the Arthur Kill to New Jersey and the national rail network.
