Brooklyn Navy Yard BLDG 92 Opens its Doors

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn were among those gathered for the opening of BLDG 92 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard - a new public center and exhibition space celebrating the Navy Yard's past, present, and future - in an event marking the first time in 210 years that the Yard welcomed the public into its gates.

Beyer Blinder Belle, in collaboration with workshop/apd, designed the adaptive reuse and addition to the 1857 former Marine Commandant's house at the Brooklyn Navy Yard to create the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at Building 92. Following extensive structural stabilization, exterior restoration and interior rehabilitation, the historic building has been returned to its former glory and transformed into a state-of-the-art green facility.
