Recently went on the Brooklyn Navy Yard tour Past, Present and Future. So much fascinating content packed into two hours. Highly recommend! Now planning to take some of the other, more specific, tours that are offered.

This unique Turnstile Tour visited Ferra Designs in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. We got to meet the owner of the business who explained the history and showed us some of the unique jobs the business has worked on. Really interesting tour!

A very thoughtful and interesting tour. I would recommend this tour for those interested in urban renewal and jobs. Also consider days when the yard is working and tours to the working farm rooftop.
