"Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" is a poem by Walt Whitman, and is part of his collection Leaves of Grass. It describes the ferry trip across the East Rivermarker from Manhattanmarker to Brooklynmarker.

The poem specifically addresses future readers who will look back on it, and the ferry ride, years hence. In the first stance, Whitman writes:
And you that shall cross from shore to shore years hence are more to me, and more in my meditations, than you might suppose.

A portion of the poem is used as an inscription at the Fulton Ferry Landing in Brooklyn Heightsmarker, where the ferry landed.
