Brooklyn Navy Yard: Past, Present and Future
For over 150 years, the Brooklyn Navy Yard churned out America's most famous fighting ships, from the USS Maine to the USS Missouri. Today, the Yard is considered a national model for sustainable urban industrial parks. This tour, given in partnership with Turnstile Tours, explores the 300-acre facility and offers opportunities to get off the bus for a closer look at the Yard's most intriguing sites, including a dry dock that's been used since before the Civil War, the 24-acre former Navy hospital campus that is virtually frozen in time and the nation's first multi-story LEED Gold-certified industrial building. Oral history clips, historical photographs and insight into today's Yard business are also among the highlights of this comprehensive "Best of New York" tour. Length:2 to 2.5 hours.
