Yeah. Literally every major Great Lakes, Pacific, Gulf and Atlantic coast city had old port facilities that were either rebuilt or relocated with containerization. Jax literally has no excuses outside of putting its own feet in its mouth when it comes to the activity level of the downtown waterfront.

Even river ports are included.  New Orleans built an aquarium on their old waterfront, Memphis built housing and parks, Vicksburg and Shreveport put in casinos and riverwalks, and Chattanooga did parks and riverwalks.  Sacramento has Old Towne .

You're right. There's a ton of river cities that have had to deal with the same issue.
