The economic vitality that is visible at The Brooklyn Navy Yard today is a far cry from the way it once looked. For almost two centuries it was a shipbuilding facility. After being decommissioned in the 1960s, it became an industrial park. Now The Brooklyn Navy Yard is a mixed use complex that’s home to a growing number of eateries, Tech companies, film production studios and other business. Its also the focus of a new documentary.
Fordham Conversations host Robin Shannon talks with Mark Street, Program Director of the Visual Arts Program at Fordham University. His documentary “Morning, Noon, Night; Water, Land and Sky,” is an abstract exploration of the resurrection of the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
