A Peek Inside the Brooklyn Navy Yard

Anyone who has passed the gates of the Brooklyn Navy Yard and peered in at the dilapidated and decaying grand structures has wondered what lies within. Thirteen has produced a short video that provides some wonderful answers...


The City Concealed: Brooklyn Navy Yard from Thirteen.org on Vimeo.

"Brooklyn Navy Yard is one of NYC’s largest pieces of intact — though decaying — history. Sprawling over nearly 300 acres, it has both current industrial tenants, and plans are in the works for adaptive reuse projects for some of the buildings. It’s living history, dotted by pockets of contemporary industry."
— Tom Vigliotta, Producer
