It’s Veterans Day: BK Navy Yard Museum

Thank a Veteran today. Honor those who have served us and continue to do so.

A free and historical activity to do today in honor of Veteran’s day is to visit the Brooklyn Navy Yard Museum, which opens today. The 300-acre historical ship building yard has been closed to the public for 200 years. The new museum is housed in the renovated 1857 Marine Commandant’s Residence. The bike ride there along Kent Ave from Greenpoint is a quick and scenic.

“[The Brooklyn Navy Yard] produced the USS Missouri, famous for being the ship on which the Japanese surrendered in WW2. During the early 1940s, a total of 17 battleships were built, hundreds of carriers and war ships were retooled, and thousands of warships were repaired here.” – About Brooklyn

Check out a sneak peek of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Museum on Gothamist.
