Brooklyn Navy Yard: Past, Present & Future Tour

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.
