Some Work at the Navy Yard’s Building B


Looks like a bit of work is happening at the Navy Yard’s Building B, one of the two buildings the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation vowed to restore. (The other is the Timber Shed, still badly damaged, on the corner of Flushing Avenue and Sands Street.) A construction fence went up around the site this September in anticipation of reinforcement work to come. At this point, the windows of Building B received some reinforcement but it doesn’t look like interior work has started up. This is the only one of the townhouses along Admiral’s Row that will be preserved in the large-scale development coming.

  • As a resident of Wallabout, it breaks my heart that more could not have been done sooner to save more of these stunning historic buildings. Red tape makes me sad…..now there will be a Shoprite there? Meh….
