Brooklyn Navy Yard

brooklyn navy yard 01brooklyn navy yard 02 Building 92 houses the exhibition The Brooklyn Navy Yard: Past, Present, and Future. The 300-square acre Brooklyn Navy Yard is the third-oldest dry dock in the US and still is being actively used. Founded in 1801, the Yard was once America’s premier ship building facility. Today, while it is in the ship repair business, it also hosts a wide range of businesses. Over the years, the Yard has reinvented itself to meet the changes brought about by technology, innovation, and manufacturing. Learn how issues of labor, politics, and urban and environmental planning influenced the Yard’s role in our nation’s history. Brooklyn Navy Yard Tours by Bus/Walking or Bicycle: On this tour you’ll investigate a dry dock that predates the Civil War, a 24-acre former Navy Hospital and the first multistory LEED-certified industrial building in the US. Run by guides who are passionate about their subject matter, the Brooklyn Navy Yard Tours are exceptional.
