TOUR | Brooklyn Navy Yard: Past, Present, & Future
This two-hour guided tour is a great introduction to the rich history and modern industry of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Founded in 1801, the Yard served as one of America’s premiere naval shipyards for 165 years. Today, it is a city-owned industrial park and a center of manufacturing, technology, and craft, home to over 450 industrial and creative businesses. This tour gives you a closer look at the Yard’s most intriguing sites, including a dry dock that’s been used continuously for ship repair since 1851, several historic buildings that are being adaptively reused for modern industry, and development projects that will more than double the Yard’s workforce by the end of 2020.
This tour happens at 2:00PM, every Saturday of February and March 2020. Tour starts at BLDG 92 (63 Flushing Avenue at Carlton Avenue). See all dates and times.
