30 Photos Inside the Brooklyn Navy Yard's Abandoned Buildings

New, 18 comments


Another day, another urban explorer sneaks into the abandoned buildings of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. This time, we get a detailed look inside the former surgeon's residence, which was completed around 1863. Our covert tipster, who visited the property on Wednesday, notes that this is before some of Admiral's Row was built, but thanks to landmark status, the condition of the surgeon's residence is "incredible." We also get another peek inside building R95, the Greek Revival main annex building completed in 1838, and a look around the campus. Developer Douglas Steiner will be preserving and repurposing the site's nine historic buildings for a tech campus, but for now, the property sits empty, tempting the city's many urban adventurers.
