About the Brooklyn Navy Yard
Who We Are
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 serves as the real estate developer, property manager, and business support services provider for 500+ businesses that employ 12,000+ workers operating on behalf of its owner, the City of New York.
We believe that the industrial sector can and will flourish in New York. We support this vision by providing stable, affordable spaces to small businesses and artists alike; and by assisting our businesses with workforce development initiatives and professional experiences to enhance their businesses from exhibition opportunities to small business education.
Learn About Our Exhibitions & Programs
Building 92 houses the Yard's permanent exhibition, "Brooklyn Navy Yard: Past, Present & Future, which tells the story of the Yard from 1801, when it was founded as one of the nation's first federal shipyards, through to the site's use today as an active industrial and innovation hub that is home to nearly 500 businesses. Visitors get an extensive history as the exhibition unfolds across three floors in the historic former Marine Commandant's residence.
Complementing the permanent exhibition is a rotating contemporary gallery known as the "Yard Work Gallery," several public art projects including work in view on the ground floor of Building 77 (141 Flushing Ave at Vanderbilt Ave) and the "Art & Object Walk" along the fence line on Flushing Avenue. Additionally, the Exhibits & Programs team hosts several programs annually, including launching the new series "Wallabout Design" in conjunction with NYC x DESIGN and our annual Holiday Market, taking place in 2021 on December 4 & 5.
