Seeing Green at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The Brooklyn Navy Yard was the Navy's premier ship repair and building facility for over 150 years, from 1801-1966. Today, the Navy Yard is again a national leader, but instead of ships, it now leads the way in green technology. The Navy Yard is home to numerous companies that are exemplars of sustainable design, governance and innovation. This year, Brooklyn Historical Society is proud to launch our first STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) program at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, titled "Seeing Green: Sustainable Architecture & Design at the Brooklyn Navy Yard." Join us as we discover the extensive industrial history of the Brooklyn Navy Yard and take a tour inside the yard to see first-hand Brooklyn Navy Yard's sustainability initiatives.
