Brooklyn Navy Yard Bicycle Tour
Saturday, May 5, 2012 / 12:30PM-2:30PM
Pedal along with us on this bicycle tour as we explore the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s transition from being one of the nation’s foremost naval shipbuilding facilities to a national leader for sustainable urban industrial parks. Learn about the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation’s sustainable development efforts including the nation’s first multi-story “green” industrial building, first solar and wind-powered street lamps, NYC’s first building-mounted wind turbines, adaptively reused historic structures, and new green buildings certified by the US Green Buildings Council.
