Brooklyn Navy Yard founded in 1801. America’s premier US Naval ship building facility for 165 years. Now a billion-dollar project to bring manufacturing back to New York.
The Brooklyn Navy Yard (the Yard) is a mission-driven industrial park that is a nationally acclaimed model of the viability and positive impact of modern, urban industrial development. The Yard is home to 450+ businesses employing more than 11,000 people and generating over $2.5 billion per year in economic impact for the city. Building on the Yard's history as the economic heart of Brooklyn, the 300-acre waterfront asset offers a critical pathway to the middle class for many New Yorkers.
