Make your way to the Brooklyn Navy Yard Visitor and Exhibition Center at Building 92, where this tour begins. Before or after the tour, save some time to explore the center, where exhibits illustrate the history of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and show how it evolved from a naval shipyard into an innovation and industry hub for New York City.
Each tour visits a different featured factory, workshop, or studio space, for an insider look at what’s being built on the New York waterfront. When visiting a noisy workshop or factory, you’ll be provided with a headset, so you can hear the guide throughout the tour.
The entire Brooklyn Navy Yard has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2014, but the businesses in the complex are entirely modern: tenants include woodworkers, designers, chocolate manufacturers, typesetters, and furniture makers. At your featured stop, learn about why hundreds Brooklyn Navy Yard businesses are producing locally, and discuss the future of this historic industrial facility. This tour concludes at Building 92 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Visitor Center.
