It finally seems that fall-like weather is here to stay so take advantage of the short season and pack in as many autumn activities as possible.
The iconic Lower East Side eatery Russ & Daughters has announced it will be expanding to Brooklyn as the anchor of the Brooklyn Navy Yard‘s new public food court.
When finished, Building 77 will add 1,000,000 square feet of workspace and an estimated 3,000 jobs — expanding the Navy Yard’s workforce by over 40 percent.
In just the last 10 years, the Brooklyn Navy Yard has become a hub for the next generation of Brooklyn manufacturing. With more than 300 businesses calling it home, the Navy Yard is at full capacity but continues to field daily inquiries from interested start-ups. Naturally, they’re expanding.
Brownstoner just checked in on the progress of three major construction projects in the Navy Yard — the Green Manufacturing Center, Building 77, and Dock 72. Poised to add even more space for Brooklyn business, these sites will bring an estimated 8,000 more workers to the Navy Yard over the next several years and solidify its status as a nexus of the new economy.
