Sustainability Tour of the Brooklyn Navy Yard
The Brooklyn Navy Yard was once one of America's premier naval shipyards, and today it is one of the last stretches of working industrial waterfront in New York City. On this walking tour, we will explore how the Yard is building a sustainable urban industrial park, home to over 500 companies and 11,000 jobs, and adapting to climate change and sea-level rise. We will see examples of adaptive reuse of historic buildings, examine sustainable architecture and infrastructure adaptations, and visit a green rooftop as we discuss the past, present, and future impacts of climate change as we approach the 10-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, who's impacts can still be seen today.
