Brooklyn Navy Yard Tours

star-5
12 Reviews
Brooklyn Navy Yard
Situated on the East River, between the Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges, this former industrial site is home to numerous businesses, from jewelry makers to movie studios. The  Brooklyn Navy Yard presents three floors of exhibitions, offers tours and tastings, and gives visitors the opportunity to buy Yard-made product at its gift shop.

The Basics
Established in 1801, the Brooklyn Navy Yard operated continuously as a shipbuilding facility until it was decommissioned in 1966. More recently, the 300-acre industrial site was revived by New York City's investment, and today, the yard is home to more than 300 companies producing everything from baked goods to high-end apparel.

Visitors should head for BLDG 92, where the eco-friendly visitor center has exhibitions about the yard's history and plans for future development. Tours are also a great choice to get the most out of your visit. From bike tours to guided walking tours and whiskey tastings, there's an option for everyone.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Urban planners and sustainable-architecture enthusiasts will appreciate guided Brooklyn Navy Yard tours.
  • Visit the yard’s historic sites, from the Civil War–era dry dock to the old naval hospital.
  • The on-site café offers locally roasted coffee, breakfast, and lunch.
  • Check the bus and subway schedule, since weekend service in Brooklyn is spotty.

How to Get There
To find the Brooklyn Navy Yard, take the A or C Train to the High Street–Brooklyn Bridge Station, the F Train to York Street, or the G Train to Clinton/Washington. Alternatively, several buses stop nearby, including the B48, B57, B62, B67, and B69. For registered visitors, the free shuttle from Atlantic Terminal is a great option.

When to Get There

The Brooklyn Navy Yard Center, located in BLDG 92, holds exhibition hours Wednesday to Sunday from 12pm to 6pm. The café is open daily, and tours for the public run on weekends. The Navy Yard is a great year-round destination, though it may be windy and chilly in winter. To join a tour, arrive in the late morning or afternoon—you'll want to visit the yard in daylight.

Taste Local Whiskey

Kings County Distillery produces whiskey at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center. Foodies and cocktail enthusiasts will enjoy the distillery tour, where guests learn about the history of America's favorite spirit and discover how whiskey is crafted. If you can't make the tour, come in any day of the week for a sip at the Kings County’s Gatehouse tasting room.
Address: 63 Flushing Ave #300, Brookyln, New York 11205, USA
