Meet at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center and hop on a bus to begin your tour of this massive 300-acre (121-hectare) historical site. You and your knowledgeable guide will stop and explore several locations by foot for a closer look at New York’s interesting naval history.
Visit some of the yard’s most intriguing places, like the 19th-century navy hospital and surgeon's house and the oldest dry dock in the US, which is still used for ship repair today.
For more than 150 years, this yard created America's most famous fighting ships, from the USS Maine to the USS Missouri. Hear how it has transformed from one of the nation's top naval shipbuilding facilities into a national leader for sustainable urban industrial parks. It now houses the nation's first multi-story ‘green’ industrial building, featuring wind turbines and wind- and solar-powered street lamps.
To enhance your experience, see historical photographs and listen to audio clips of WW2-era workers, manufacturers and farmers.
You’ll also learn how today the manufacturing facilities are used by hundreds of companies and generate a wide range of products ranging from modular housing units to military body armor, Sweet n' Low, whiskey and movie set designs!
