10. Commandant’s House in the Brooklyn Navy Yard
Most shots of the interior of Nucky’s house are taken here at the Commandant’s House in Vinegar Hill. A part of the Brooklyn Navy Yard property, the edifice was designed around 1805 by Charles Bulfinch, the man behind the U.S. Capitol Building. An interview with WNYC set designer Bill Groom revealed that extensive restorations were made to Federal-style doors, windows, and the parlor floor before shooting. An entire kitchen was also built in the house’s storage space. The bedrooms, however, were recreated in the studio and not filmed in the gated home on Evans Street. The Commandant’s house was purchased by a private buyer in 1964 and since then photographs of the interior have been nearly impossible to obtain.
