BLDG 92 Resources
Collections at the Brooklyn Navy Yard
The Brooklyn Navy Yard’s collections are made available to general researchers at the museum’s reference center, located on the second floor of BLDG 92. There you will find our Collections database containing nearly 5,000 photographs, artifacts and ephemera items related to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, genealogical resources, and the full run of the Navy Yard’s newspaper, the Shipworker, which was published from 1941 to 1966. You may visit the reference center during the BLDG92's normal operating hours. No appointment is required. Our museum’s interactive resource guides are happy to assist you with these resources.
Visiting the Brooklyn Navy Yard Archive
For more exhaustive scholarship, additional materials in the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s collections may be made available by appointment. For this service we ask that you fill out a Researcher Registration Form. We will review your request to determine if our archive’s holding meet your scholarship needs, and arrange for a time when our staff can be made available to help you. Please note, due to the high volume of requests we cannot guarantee an immediate response.
Please Note: Research appointments will be suspended from March 21st to July 5th, 2013. We apologize for any inconvenience.
