What does our proximity to the Navy Yard have to do with a daily stress-free commute? We’re just a 20-minute drive due south of the Yard — you could even walk it if you wanted; it’s just 2 miles away — and job opportunities are beyond plentiful in this tiny but bustling area. The waterfront region, which sits directly across the river from Manhattan’s Lower East Side, is home to more than 400 businesses. Many are in the manufacturing business, in one form or another, but the industries are abundant, including textiles, spirits, printing, woodworking, and beyond.
Plenty of Activities to Enjoy
But don’t for a minute think that you have to work at the Yard in order to enjoy it. There are myriad experiences to take advantage of when you’re just in search of a leisurely way to spend your afternoon.
There’s the Brooklyn Grange, the first-ever rooftop farm (yes, you read that right) in New York City. This place sells its goods at weekly farmer’s markets and even supplies some local restaurants.
If you’re a fan of spirits, Kings County Distillery is one spot you shouldn’t miss. It’s the city’s oldest and largest distillery and is open to the public for regular tours and whiskey tastings, including flights, pours, and snacks.
History buffs should be sure to stop by the Brooklyn Navy Yard Museum. The fully restored LEED-certified building dates all the way back to 1858 and has three floors that are dedicated to the past, present, and future of the Yard. Don’t miss a chance to stop by the Brooklyn Roasting Company cafe for a bite and some coffee.
The Navy Yard is also home to an always-changing rotation of special events, from seasonal markets to art exhibits. Just take a look at their calendar of events to see which pique your interest.
