The Grand Opening for Building 92 at the Navy Yard


    [nggallery id=56579 template=galleryview]
    We just returned from the grand opening of Building 92 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and man, is it outstanding. The afternoon began with an outdoor ceremony and remarks from Mayor Bloomberg, Speaker Christine Quinn and others. Major props were given to Navy Yard President Andrew Kimball and Board Chair Aan Fishman for spearheading the project, and both of them spoke and invited guests to tour the new facility. The museum is four floors, with a 22,500-pound steel anchor from the Austin dominating the entryway. On top of the galleries, which present a comprehensive and visual history of the Navy Yard, there is a resource center, learning studio and exhibition display. (Currently on exhibit is a photography collection from artist Christopher Anderson.) The Ted and Honey Cafe is up on the fourth floor, surrounded by glass walls and an outdoor balcony that overlooks the Navy Yard. There’s also green roof garden growing drought-resistant plants. Building 92 opens to the public tomorrow at noon and will host free tours, family events and prizes. What an exciting addition to the borough!
