“Yard Work,” an open and adaptable gallery designed by SITU, opened in February 2016 to display the rich work and culture of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Located in BLDG 92, the exhibition is adjacent to a new Brooklyn Roasting Company cafe. Together, the gallery and cafe offer an exciting new space at the Yard, designed to serve tenants as well as neighboring communities.
Through rotating and curated exhibitions, Yard Work showcases the tools, talents, people, products, community and culture of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Celebrating the diversity of the Yard’s tenant base, the gallery reflects the Yard’s vision and role as an anchor of New York City’s modern industrial sector supporting a unique and innovative ecosystem.
