4. Landmarked Dry Dock #1 at Brooklyn Navy Yard

The Brooklyn Navy Yard, as a whole, is a National Landmark, but one of the individual New York City landmarks within it is Dry Dock #1, landmarked in 1975 as “was one of the great feats of American engineering in the first half of the 19th century.” Built between 1840 and 1851, the dry dock is a below-water level chamber that can be drained to allow boats to be repaired. Dry Dock #1 was the first permanent dry dock in the New York City area. Dry Dock #1 is also a popular spot for film locations on television shows like Gotham and Jessica Jones.
