    Brooklyn Navy Yard

    Amid Weeds and Rust, a Ruin Seeks a Second Act

    By ALEX MINDLIN
    Published: February 24, 2008

    FOR as long as most people living in Farragut Houses can remember, the 10 weed-choked town houses around the corner have lain in ruins, partly hidden behind a high fence and ignored by all who pass.

    Gabriele Stabile for The New York Times
    “Those buildings are disintegrating, and nobody’s ever done anything with them,” a local resident said of Admirals’ Row.

    Although the ornate 19th-century buildings on Admirals’ Row had an illustrious history, housing high-ranking officers at the Brooklyn Navy Yard from the 1850s until the 1970s, they now stand in ruins. Trees poke through their fallen roofs, ivy coats their walls, and rust blooms on their delicate wrought-iron railings.

    “Those things there? They’ve been there forever,” said Elijah Knox, a resident of the Farragut project who was hurrying across its wind-swept courtyard the other day. “They need to tear them down.”

    That is precisely the thinking of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation, a nonprofit group that oversees the Navy Yard. The city is asking that the National Guard, which owns the property, give the land to the city so that the corporation can demolish the houses and replace them with a supermarket of roughly 60,000 square feet and a large industrial building. Residents of Farragut and two other public housing projects nearby would be given preference in hiring.

    Although preservation groups, including the Landmarks Conservancy and the Historic Districts Council, have publicly attacked that proposal, it has met a mostly warm reception among Farragut residents, who regard the vacant town houses as neglected eyesores.

    At a meeting on Tuesday night of residents of Walt Whitman Houses, few of those present could recall ever having even seen the houses, which are four blocks away.

    “Those buildings are disintegrating, and nobody’s ever done anything with them, so put in a supermarket,” suggested Barbara Russ, who has lived in Whitman Houses for more than half a century. “Something reasonable, a ShopRite.”

    The National Guard has embarked on a months-long review to determine whether it must require any potential buyer to preserve the houses. A report commissioned by the agency and released last month put the cost of preservation at roughly $20 million, but representatives of the development corporation say that the figure underestimates the costs and that the corporation will walk away from any deal that would include preserving the buildings.

    If the Navy Yard abandons the project, Councilwoman Letitia James, whose district includes the town houses, said in an interview, “we’ll have buildings that are falling down, and I’ll have no supermarket.”

    But not all of the project’s neighbors agree that demolition is the best course.

    “My windows look down on those houses,” said Carla Thomas, a Farragut resident. “We sit there and ask each other: ‘Why don’t they fix them up, and make something for tourists? There’s enough money in Brooklyn.’ ”

    Thanks for that article, I saw those buildings last week and wondered why they were in that condition. The streets around them are also terrible.

    I agree with BrooklynLove.

    When things have been (purposely) allowed to get to such a bad state, they will use this as an excuse to demolish.

    Such a pity.

    Admirals' Row


    Admirals’ Row in the Brooklyn Navy Yard once housed high-ranking naval officers and their families, but the houses have stood empty since the 1970s. Right, inside one of the houses. The houses, built between 1864 and 1901, were part of a six-acre site, including stables and tennis courts.
    They have been unoccupied for decades, and their future is undetermined.

    I drove for Mystic Bulk Carriers some years ago and I remember loading cement at Norval's terminal in the old Navy Yard.

    I believe this is it:

    Notice the large rectangular vessel at the dock, that's what brought the cement.

    Historic Brooklyn Navy Yard gets modern makeover


    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    Published: May 18, 2008
    Filed at 12:33 a.m. ET

    NEW YORK (AP) -- When the Pentagon closed the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 1966, it became an obsolete facility awash in history but torpedoed by time.

    Yet within the past 15 years, the 40-plus buildings behind the nondescript facade have become a modern beehive of activity that includes almost everything but, well, bees.

    Its old machine shops and warehouses hum with small entrepreneurs -- makers of furniture, clothing, industrial equipment, theatrical sets and computer software -- as well as medical suppliers, fashion designers, printers, carpenters and artists, altogether employing 5,000 people.

    Andrew Kimball, president and CEO of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corp., a not-for-profit that manages the city-owned site, said current plans call for spending $250 million in public and private money to add 1.3 million square feet of space and 1,500 more jobs by 2009. In a decade, he said, there should be 5,000 more jobs.

    ''The Brooklyn Navy Yard has added another chapter to its rich history by becoming a thriving hub of industrial business,'' Kimball says.

    It didn't happen overnight.

    With the Navy gone, the drydocks and cranes that helped win seven wars fell into disrepair. The carved eagles-on-pillars guarding the main gate vanished and front entrance eventually became a police department auto pound, where citizens pay $200 or more to reclaim stolen and towed vehicles.

    At the old naval hospital, a marble ghost dating from 1837, the wide corridors and patient wards echo with emptiness. On Admiral's Row, six graceful turn-of-the-century mansions once occupied by top officers and still owned by the federal government, are falling into ruin, their future still unclear.

    Kimball and Daniella Romano, the Navy yard's resident archivist, said the new development will give the Navy yard's past its due, including include oral histories of former workers such as Audrey Lyons who was a $40-a-week parts inspector in 1944 when Margaret Truman was invited to christen the brand-new USS Missouri.

    The daughter of Sen. Harry S. Truman, who was soon to be president, needed help to break the champagne bottle on the third try -- a less than sparkling debut for the ''Mighty Mo,'' the last truly famous warship among hundreds produced at the yard since 1801.

    ''We all took time off to see it,'' recalls Lyons, now 84 and retired in Essex, Conn.

    The first ship built there, in 1798, was the frigate USS Adams, burned by its crew in 1812 to avoid British capture. The last, the amphibious transport USS Duluth, slipped into the East River in 1965.

    Other noteworthy vessels included the Fulton II, the first U.S. steam-powered warship to go to sea, in 1837; USS Niagara, which helped lay the first trans-Atlantic undersea cable; and USS Monitor, built elsewhere but commissioned at the yard in 1862. Within weeks it faced the Confederates' CSS Virginia in history's first clash of ironclads -- a standoff, but a death knell for wooden warships.

    USS Maine, America's first battleship, was commissioned in 1889 and exploded at its dock in Havana in 1898, triggering the Spanish-American War that recast the United States as a world power.

    The battleship USS Arizona, launched in 1915, remains the best-known symbol of America's entry into World War II. Moored near its sunken hulk at Pearl Harbor is the Missouri, now a floating museum symbolizing the Allied victory in 1945.

    At the Brooklyn Navy Yard, a parking lot will replace the police auto pound and building near the main gate will offer guided tours and an exhibit of photographs and artifacts.

    The gate itself is to be restored as nearly as possible to its turn-of-the-20th century look.

    The continuing expansion of the Navy yard will emphasize ''green'' construction. Hospital buildings and an overgrown cemetery that once held 1,500 bodies await transformation into a 20-acre ''media campus'' focused on entertainment, TV and graduate educational programs. (The bodies were reburied in a cemetery in Queens.)

    Some of the six drydocks remain in use for maintenance. On a recent day, one held a large Singapore-based oil products tanker. The U.S. Coast Guard tug Sturgeon Bay occupied another. ''Maritime is still part of what we do,'' Kimball said.

    The yard's biggest tenant is Steiner Studios, a Hollywood-style operation in a cavernous former machine shop with sound stages where large pieces of vessels were once assembled. It, too, is expanding.

    There is a fish wholesaler to fancy restaurants, a shroud-maker for Orthodox Jewish funerals and a factory producing coffee-sweetener packets.

    At Ferra Designs, Inc., partners Robert Ferraroni and Jeff Kahn use a powerful water jet to cut steel for custom-designed furniture and sculpture. They found space at the Navy yard after rising rents forced a move from the nearby Williamsburg neighborhood.

    ''The Navy yard is a great resource for networking with other businesses,'' Kahn said. ''I feel like we're in a community here. We do business together, and it reinforces the feeling that we are in the right place.''

    A Call to Preserve Admirals’ Row at the Navy Yard’s Edge

    By Sewell Chan


    In one proposal from the Municipal Art Society, historic houses along Flushing Street would be preserved, with ground-floor retail stores and a central green space for pedestrians. (Image: Andrew Burdick/Architecture for Humanity New York)

    Admirals’ Row, at the southwestern edge of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, housed high-ranking officers from the 1840s until the early 1970s. The city wants the Army National Guard, which owns the property, to transfer the land to the city so that the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation can demolish the houses and replace them with a supermarket and a large industrial building. Residents of nearby public housing projects would be given preference in hiring.

    Preservation groups, like the New York Landmarks Conservancy and the Historic Districts Council, want to save the buildings from destruction. On Wednesday, the Municipal Art Society presented six alternative plans to the Army National Guard, arguing that the historic buildings could be incorporated into the new retail and industrial space planned at the Navy Yard.

    The society argues that the Admirals’ Row buildings can be saved, since they occupy only about 25 percent of the six-acre site slated for redevelopment. Under Section 106 of the federal National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, certain “consulting parties” — including, in this case, the preservation groups — have the right to offer input when federal property is transferred.

    Wednesday, the Army National Guard had its third meeting under the Section 106 process, weighing alternatives to full demolition of the structures. “There was a lot of discussion among the different parties, so what we plan is to take a look at those and factor them into our decision-making,” Kristin E. Leahy, a contractor working on cultural resources issues with the Army National Guard, said in a phone interview.

    At the end of the process, the Army National Guard will draft a memorandum of agreement with the City of New York, a legally binding document that governs how the land may be used in the future. Ms. Leahy said that there was no firm timetable, but that a draft might be ready by late fall.

    Army National Guard officials also heard testimony on Wednesday from the development corporation and from Brent Porter, a professor of architecture at the Pratt Institute, representing the Society for Clinton Hill.

    In a phone interview, Lisa Kersavage, director of advocacy and policy at the Municipal Art Society, said the society’s plan would not imperil any of the economic development for the site, nor the job creation that would accompany such development.

    “Creative site planning with involvement of the community enabled us to create alternative plans that meet the Navy Yard’s program for a grocery store and retail and industrial space while allowing for the restoration and reuse of the historic buildings,” she added in a statement.


    The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation’s plans call for a “suburban-style sea of parking,” according to the Municipal Art Society. (Image: Andrew Burdick/Architecture for Humanity New York)

    Convincing the development corporation could be a tall order. Its plan calls for more than 300 parking spaces around a 65,000-square-foot supermarket (about the size of the Fairway in Red Hook). Ms. Kersavage said that the parking could be reconfigured or reduced, producing “a greener and more pedestrian-friendly site.”

    Admirals’ Row, at the southwestern edge of the Navy Yard, at Flushing Avenue and Navy Street, is a collection of 11 historic buildings: 10 houses, built between the 1840s and 1901, and a timber shed from around the 1830s. The shed — 33 feet tall, 60 feet wide and 103 feet long — was used to store new wooden ship masts as they cured and is believed to be the only such surviving shed among naval yards in the United States. Preservationists think the shed is prime for “adaptive reuse” as, say, a farmers’ market or even light manufacturing.

    Melissa Baldock, fellow for historic preservation at the Municipal Art Society, said in a statement:
    Together, these buildings are a remarkable collection of residential and naval service buildings that are incredibly significant to the Navy Yard, the borough of Brooklyn, and even the larger history of the United States Navy. The buildings of the Brooklyn Navy Yard were executed on a grander scale with more ornate details than comparable buildings at other navy yards throughout the United States.

    Although they have been abandoned and allowed to deteriorate since the early 1970s, they retain a great deal of both exterior and interior architectural detail, and most are structurally sound.
    Andrew Kimball, president of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation, said in a statement:
    There is a simple reason that the vast majority of the community and all of the elected officials support the Navy Yard’s plan for Admirals’ Row: It is economically viable and delivers on the two-decade commitment to provide fresh, affordable produce and hundreds of jobs for the community. The alternatives presented by MAS and others, however well-intentioned, do nothing to change this reality as well as the fiscal reality that the buildings cannot be saved or the fact that development realities require the kind of plan we have put forward. It is time for the federal government to keep its word to the people of this part of Brooklyn — people who do not have a place to buy fresh groceries, who need jobs, and who want to enjoy a decent quality of life.

    Andrew Kimball is an idiot. They should tear him down and build a parking lot over him.

    What's in the Brooklyn Navy Yard?

    By JASON SHEFTELL
    Daily News Real Estate Correspondent
    Thursday, August 21st 2008, 8:09 PM


    McCory/News The Kearsarge, a 27,000-ton aircraft carrier, launched from the Brooklyn Navy Yard on May 5, 1945.-



    Gill for News The same building as above - 63 years later, and boatless.



    Gill for News
    Shells of commercial airlines and taxis cut in half are a common site at the Navy Yard, once the site of reseach by the NTSB into a ferry crash. These planes, however, are for film sets.


    On a sunny day in July, I jumped around the Brooklyn Navy Yard with a photographer, amazed at the scope of the 300-acre, 40-building site.

    We saw cavernous buildings the size of stadiums rotting away. Airplanes were cut in half. Eighty-year-old cranes with operating cabs bigger than two-bedroom apartments hovered in the sky. Circle Line boats were parked for the night. Huge environmental cleaning machines hummed behind closed doors of ominous-looking buildings. Secrets and wonders seemed to be lurking in every corner.

    Now inhabited by more than 200 tenants, including designers, artists, blind-makers, film-storage companies, architects, office equipment companies, a U.S. Department of Agriculture field office, and security organizations such as Brinks, this could quite possibly be the coolest place to work in all of New York City. In truth, it's nothing more than a huge industrial office park.

    Security is tight, and the gates are always manned - rumors swirled after Sept. 11 when certain doors and buildings were allegedly surrounded by armed military personal.

    Dating to 1801, the Brooklyn Navy Yard was the manufacturing site for the first steam-powered warship, the Fulton Steam Frigate, which was never actually deployed before it exploded, killing 29 men. A Brooklyn Navy Yard Historical Center will open soon. The yards get their fair share of celebrities, with Steiner Studios drawing shows such as "Law & Order" and a host of top films starring the world's leading actors (A-list names like Robert De Niro and Russell Crowe).

    So how much is space? Rents range from $10 to $20 per square foot. For more information, go to www.BrooklynNavyYard.org.

    Fire at Brooklyn Navy Yard Has Been Put Out

    By Christine Hauser

    Firefighters battled flames on three floors of a building leased to one of New York City’s largest movie studios in the Brooklyn Navy Yard midday on Friday. There were no reports of casualties in the fire at the building, which was unoccupied as it was being renovated, Navy Yard and fire officials said.

    The fire broke out at about noon, when the 911 call came in, and progressed to a three alarm fire with about 140 firefighters fighting flames from the third through the fifth floors. Glass in the building’s grid of windows was shattered as firefighters shot water from high-pressure hoses into the six-story building.

    Within an hour the main body of the fire had been put out and firefighters were hosing down pockets of flames.

    The 289,000 square feet building had been leased to the adjacent Steiner Studios sound stages for use as production and office space. Steiner Studios had announced last November that it had joined forces with the Navy Yard to transform a 20-acre segment of the yard into a media and entertainment center that would also contain a studio lot.

    Steiner Studios opened at the industrial park in 2004, and this year took a long term lease on the building, which is located at the Washington Avenue gate of yard. Laborers were seen working on the renovations at the brick building on Friday morning.

    The Brooklyn Navy Yard is a 300-acre industrial park with more than 40 buildings located along the East River between the Williamsburg and Manhattan Bridges.

    Daryl Khan contributed reporting.

    Default Time runs out for Brooklyn’s Admiral’s Row

    Time runs out for Brooklyn’s Admiral’s Row

    A compromise deal between the National Guard and the Brooklyn Navy Yard's operator is set to raze all but one of the crumbling historic homes, sources say.

    By Theresa Agovino


    Most of the buildings that comprise the historic Admiral’s Row in the Brooklyn Navy Yard will be torn down to pave the way for a supermarket in an agreement reached by the Yard’s operator and the homes’ owner, the National Guard, sources close to the negotiations say.

    The plan, which is slated to be revealed to community groups in late April, would salvage only one of the 10 crumbling residences and a structure known as the Timber Shed, according to sources. The compromise would likely enrage preservationists who were hoping for a plan that would save all the buildings.

    A request for proposals for a developer to build the supermarket and an industrial building is expected to go out after the compromise plan has been released.

    The fate of the homes, which are more than a century old, has been in limbo for at least two decades. Preservationists have pushed to salvage the decaying mansions while the Brooklyn Navy Yard sought to raze them to make way for retail and additional industrial space. A study conducted for the National Guard found that it would cost about $25 million to restore Admiral’s Row, a figure that Navy Yard officials insisted was unrealistically low.

    Kristin Leahy, project specialist at the National Guard, said no decision has been made and that it is still working with interested parties. Andrew Kimball, president and chief executive of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corp., declined comment.

    The city owns the Navy Yard and has spent years working with neighborhood activists, preservationists and the Guard to create a proposal for Admiral’s Row that everyone would find acceptable. One source feared preservationists would attempt to block the compromise reached by the Yard’s management and the Guard.

    The Navy Yard is a now a 300-acre industrial park. Its management has been trying for years to bring a supermarket to the site that will provide jobs and fresh produce to the surrounding Brooklyn neighborhood of Fort Greene, which is in need of both.

    Preservationists, who say they haven’t been told of the compromise, have argued that the buildings could be saved while still leaving room for a supermarket.

    “The Navy Yard made this an either-or situation, and it didn’t have to be that way,” said Peg Breen, president of The New York Landmarks Conservancy.

    Lisa Kersavage, director of advocacy and policy for the Municipal Art Society said that the organization is pleased that at least some of the buildings will saved. However, she says she would have preferred to have all the buildings remain.

    From Navy Blue to Green

    By Andy Newman

    Andy Newman
    Listen to the wind: Radio reporters captured the sound of renewable energy at the mayor’s press conference in the Brookln Navy Yard this morning.

    With a bank of propellers harvesting the winds of the waterfront just behind him, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg stood on a rooftop in the Brooklyn Navy Yard this morning to unveil what the city says is the nation’s first multi-story green industrial facility.

    The $25 million, recycled-aluminum-clad Perry Avenue Building, which also features solar panels, high-efficiency lighting and rainwater-driven toilets, has been rented to SurroundArt, an art-handling company that presently has quarters elsewhere in the Navy Yard. SurroundArt plans to keep its old building and add about 70 jobs at the new one, CEO Mick Murray said.

    Just across the parking lot, a wind-and-solar-powered streetlamp marks a building that Duggal Visual Solutions, an industrial-display maker, is converting into a laboratory for new sustainable products.

    “When you think about this,” the mayor said, “you really have to have a great deal of confidence in the future of New York City.”
    Andy Newman
    Big green fan: Mayor Bloomberg sings the praises of renewable energy atop a new building at the Navy Yard as, left to right, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, a wind turbine, and Deputy Mayor Robert Lieber look on.

    The Perry building will get about 10 percent of its energy from wind and sun — not a ton, perhaps, but enough to power the lobby and common areas of the 89,000-square-foot building. The Duggal building is LEED-certified platinum, while the SurroundArt building is on track for gold certification.

    Of course, progress comes at a cost, not just to the city’s coffers but to the tenant’s. SurroundArt’s CEO, Mick Murray, said he was paying $20 per square foot in the new building — nearly triple his $6-a-foot rent in his other Navy Yard space, about double the $11-a-foot going rate for his kind of industrial space and 15 percent above the rate for new industrial space.

    “That’s the price you pay for being in a green building,” Mr. Murray said. It was worth it, though, he said, because, “It makes a really big statement to our industry.” He said his customers are keen to have their art kept in an environmentally friendly place.

    The new buildings are part of the city’s $250 million capital funding program to fix up the Navy Yard and help make it into a green-industry hub. The Navy Yard is in the process of installing several dozen of the wind-and-solar-powered streetlights that Duggal designed, and many buildings, including the Perry building, have solar-powered trash-compacting garbage cans out front (compressed trash means the garbage trucks only have to come a quarter as often).

    Old habits die hard, though. While skylighted corridor beneath the roof where the mayor spoke was flooded with sunshine, the overhead fluorescent lamps were on, too.

    “When we put them on this morning, it was dark,” said Andrew Kimball, the Navy Yard Development Corporation President.

    Anyway, it occurred to us, the power in the hallways was free and non-polluting.

    “That’s the way to spin it,” he said.

    Admirals Row will come down

    By Mike McLaughlin
    The Brooklyn Paper

    The city and National Guard reached an agreement to save two decrepit, yet historic, buildings in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and destroy eight others, ending an impasse and allowing the Navy Yard to proceed with its controversial plan to build a supermarket.

    The deal, announced by a spokesman for the city-run Navy Yard, does not guarantee the preservation of the low-slung Timber Shed and one of the former officers’ homes, known as Building B, which faces Flushing Avenue.

    But it allows for the transfer of the federally owned “Admirals Row” area to the city, which owns the rest of the Navy Yard.

    As part of the deal, the city would then solicit bids from developers to build a supermarket and an industrial building as well as to “test the market” to rehabilitate and maintain the two crumbling 19th-century structures.

    It’s unclear how the historic buildings would be reused. The other eight buildings along the row could be demolished by the city, under this agreement.

    The city rejoiced at the compromise.

    “If a viable proposal is received, the Brooklyn Navy Yard will move forward with the acquistion of the property, resulting in new jobs, additional revenue for the city and state, a vitally important amenity of a new supermarket — the only one to serve the community — and the reuse of what has become a blighted eyesore that has burdened the community and the Brooklyn Navy Yard for decades,” said Navy Yard President Andrew Kimball.

    The fight over the once-grand structures in the Admirals Row began in earnest after the city announced plans to acquire the land and build the supermarket. Locals, many of them from nearby public housing projects, craved the idea of a large grocery store near their homes and sided with the city.

    But preservationists, including local activists and the Muncipal Art Society, a city-wide group, objected. Late on Wednesday, the art society put out a statement demanding that more buildings be preserved.

    “We have hoped, and continue to hope, that more of these very significant historic buildings will be retained and incorporated into the development,” said Lisa Kersavage, the Society’s director of advocacy and policy. “We will continue to work with [the National Guard] to … preserve more of the buildings. The Navy Yard is seeking to demolish the buildings to create a very large surface parking and we strongly believe that more … buildings could be preserved by reconfiguring their plan.”

    I can understand why this is the outcome but still a bummer. Even more a bummer that the Row was left to end up in this condition in the first place. So many stories to be told of how different the Yard, Farragut and Ingersol were back during WWII times.
