Brooklyn Navy Yard: Past, Present, and Future

August 13, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm


USS Arizona” In the East River, New York City, 1916   www.bldg92.org

“Brooklyn Navy Yard: Past, Present and Future” tells for the first time the story of the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard, the 300-acre site nestled on the world-famous Brooklyn waterfront. Established in 1801 as one of the nation’s first five naval shipyards, over 165 years the Yard developed into the nation’s premiere naval industrial facility.  Today, it is home to the greatest concentration of manufacturing and green businesses in New York City.  This exhibition explores contributions made at the Yard to American industry, technology, innovation and manufacturing and learn about the Yard’s impact on labor, politics, education, and urban and environmental planning.

Displayed over three floors of historic Building 92, “Brooklyn Navy Yard: Past, Present and Future” introduces the generations of people who worked, or were stationed, at the Yard, who lived in the communities surrounding it, who shaped the Yard over time and who now are creating its future. Learn, for the first time, the story of this waterfront site: from its use by Native Americans to its role in the American Revolution; from the great naval ships designed and built here, to its emergence as the innovative industrial park you see today!

The show is open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 6pm. For more information, visit bldg92.org.
