7. There’s an Abandoned Hospital in the Brooklyn Navy Yard

The Brooklyn Navy Yard is one of New York City’s great examples of adaptive reuse, now a thriving manufacturing hub and film studio. Still, some parts of the Navy Yard remain abandoned, including the Brooklyn Navy Yard Hospital Annex. A recent proposal from Steiner Studios seeks to turn this portion of the Navy Yard into a media complex by 2027. Many of the existing buildings would be saved and reused in this proposal. Until October 24th, visitors will have a chance to step inside the abandoned hospital to see a war photography exhibit.
