Building 77: a Modern Production Facility at the Brooklyn Navy Yard

Apr 16, 2018

Reopened in 2017, Building 77 is a modern production center in the Brooklyn Navy Yard located on Flushing Avenue between the DUMBO, Williamsburg and Fort Green neighborhoods of Brooklyn.

The building was rapidly constructed in 1942 as a 16-story reinforced concrete structure. The windowless lower 11 floors provided warehouse storage, while the upper floors served as offices for the Yard’s Commandant and the US Navy’s oversight of the North Atlantic Fleet during WWII. The building is a part of the National Register Brooklyn Navy Yard Historic District.
