Brooklyn Navy Yard

63 Flushing Ave #300, Brookyln, New York, 11205

The Basics

Established in 1801, the Brooklyn Navy Yard operated continuously as a shipbuilding facility until it was decommissioned in 1966. More recently, the 300-acre industrial site was revived by New York City's investment, and today, the yard is home to more than 300 companies producing everything from baked goods to high-end apparel.

Visitors should head for BLDG 92, where the eco-friendly visitor center has exhibitions about the yard's history and plans for future development. Tours are also a great choice to get the most out of your visit. From bike tours to guided walking tours and whiskey tastings, there's an option for everyone.

Things to Know Before You Go

When to Get There

The Brooklyn Navy Yard Center, located in BLDG 92, holds exhibition hours Wednesday to Sunday from 12pm to 6pm. The café is open daily, and tours for the public run on weekends. The Navy Yard is a great year-round destination, though it may be windy and chilly in winter. To join a tour, arrive in the late morning or afternoon—you'll want to visit the yard in daylight.
