Can I come down to the Port to watch the ships unload?

The Port has public streets.  Due to Homeland Security, you should expect to be stopped by anyone of the businesses or security personnel to ask you who you are and your business at the Port.  A form of identification will be asked of you. Each terminal (operation) at the port is a private company and you are not allowed on their leased land unless you have their permission.
