avatar for Brooklyn Navy Yard

Brooklyn Navy Yard

Once America’s premier Naval shipyard, today the Brooklyn Navy Yard is a mission-driven industrial park and a hub of industry, host to 330 business and 7,000 workers. This tour showcases the role the Brooklyn Navy Yard plays in providing economic opportunities for thousands of New Yorkers, from small business owners to manufacturing workers to technology startups, many working in the energy sector

We will take a closer look at the infrastructure that keeps the Yard running, including a co-generation plant, a 1.1 million kWh rooftop solar project, and water treatment facilities. We will focus on the major development projects currently underway at the Yard, including new construction and adaptive reuse, which are projected to more than double the Yard’s workforce to over 16,000 by 2020, the greatest expansion of the Yard since World War II.

The tour covers most of the massive 300-acre campus, including visits to the still-active 1851 Dry Dock No. 1, the one-million-square-foot World War II-era Building 77, the sites of the Admiral’s Row and Dock 72 projects, and the LEED Platinum-certified Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, which houses the Yard's museum, visitor center, and employment center.
