Originally built in 1942 as a storage facility and Naval Intelligence office (featured in Jenny Egan’s “Manhattan Beach”), Building 77 is now regarded as a recognized model of high-density urban manufacturing. Home to companies in fields from fashion to technology, the ground floor food hub harks back to the site’s history as the home to Wallabout Market – a bustling market active from the 1890s into WWII. Join in the tradition of supporting small business food manufacturing at the Yard.

Building 92 was originally constructed as the Marine Corps Commandant’s Residence in 1858. It is the last standing building of a 3.5-acre complex that included Marine Officers’ Quarters, Barracks, and a Gate House. The building sank into disrepair upon the decommissioning of the site in 1966, but in 2007 the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation hired architecture firm, Beyer Blinder Belle, to design Building 92 as a gateway to the community. Opened to the public in 2011, Building 92 is the Yard’s first LEED Platinum building, the highest designation of the U.S. Green Building Council, and operates as an exhibition space and career training center.
