Description:
Discover the Brooklyn Navy Yard on this exciting, exclusive bus tour and learn about the past, present and future of this historical landmark.

The Brooklyn Navy Yard is an industrial park whose roots date back to the Revolution. For over 150 years, the Yard built some of America's most famous fighting ships from the USS Maine to the USS Missouri.

Today, the Yard is becoming a national leader for sustainable urban industrial parks. On this tour, you'll learn about the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation's sustainable development efforts including the nation's first multi-story "green" industrial building, first solar and wind-powered street lamps, New York City's first building-mounted wind turbines, adaptively reused historic structures, and new green buildings certified by the US Green Buildings Council.

While exploring the vast 300-acre property, you will also view a Civil War era dry dock and the 24-acre former Navy hospital campus that is virtually frozen in time.

While this tour uses a bus to get you from place to place, you will be getting off the bus at almost every stop to look around and learn about this captivating development.

"I will be recommending Cloud 9 Living to my friends. The booking was easy and the language was clear. My family very much enjoyed the tour to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Alex, the tour guide, was friendly and knowledgeable. He met the group in the museum building which had bathrooms and water. The tour was part bus & part walking. The bus was air conditioned and comfortable. There was just the right amount of walking. The Brooklyn Navy Yard has an amazing history and future. The tour provides a great way to learn all about it.
