Brooklyn Navy Yard

Navy Yard is a historic Brooklyn neighborhood since the Revolutionary War when it was first used as a major vessel-building location. It was the top federal shipbuilding facility.

After years of neglect, it has transformed into a hub for innovation, housing tech companies, artists’ studios, and modern manufacturing facilities today.

There are even dry docks, active piers, and industrial trucking and shipping that happen here to this day. There are office buildings and part of Steiner Studios, a prominent film and TV production studio on site.
