The Today's Yard gallery is an enjoyable demonstration of the astonishing array of products and services offered by the businesses who took up the massive buildings and infrastructure passed on by the Navy. Video accounts by a few of these entrepreneurs demonstrate the Yard's trajectory: a journey reinforced by our latest rotating exhibit Making it in NYC: The Era of New Manufacturing. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? We also have a beautifully designed outdoor forecourt, which is a perfect place to read on a weekend morning with a cup of coffee.

  • City Reliquary Museum
    Like pigeons to a Central Park statue, the fragments of New York's history congregate at not-for-profit The City Reliquary Museum, which also acts as a civic organization that serves the five boroughs. There, past a bright red door and a canary-yellow awning, visitors find terracotta shards of landmark buildings, old-fashioned subway tokens, paint chips from the L train, and a wall of antique Statue of Liberty postcards. A shrine to Jackie Robinson celebrates a Civil Rights icon that contemporaries could have read about in an old-fashioned newsstand like the one preserved in an alcove in the next room. Other highlights of the museum include a rotating exhibition hall, a World's Fair archive, and a set of geological core samples that contain the seeds of the Big Apple. Through permanent display of New York City artifacts, rotating exhibits of community collections, and annual cultural events, The City Reliquary connects visitors to both the past and present of New York. The New York Post said the little storefront "celebrates Brooklyn?s underdog spirit with exacting curatorial detail," and the AV Club called it simply, warmly, "the city's oddest museum."

  • Brooklyn Historical Society
    One of the Brooklyn Historical Society’s current exhibitions, “Inventing Brooklyn: People, Places, Progress,” traces the forces that transformed the area from its Native American origins to its present state as a thriving metropolis. That exhibit reflects the society as a whole, which was founded in 1863 to celebrate Brooklyn’s history and evolution. The museum also houses exhibits that extend beyond pure history, such as “Say Cheese! Portraits to Pics,” a record of family portraiture that includes vintage daguerreotypes, detailed Etch-a-Sketches from the 1960's, and modern digital snapshots. To complement the exhibits, the society also runs the Othmer library, a nationally recognized research library with archives of local photography, manuscripts, and oral histories from more than 300 narrators, many of which focus on specific themes such as Brooklyn Navy Yard Workers or the Williamsburg Giglio Festival. The society’s staff also takes their expertise out into the community to helm walking tours that criss-cross the borough, host off-site exhibits, and work extensively in local schools.

  • Gotham SideWalks
    During two-hour walking tours or three-hour bike tours, the guides from Gotham SideWalks aim to give groups valuable insight into the history and the future of several iconic New York neighborhoods. These journeys focus on Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan in particular, encouraging visitors to experience the city's culture by interacting with the art, architecture, and community members as much as possible. All the while, guides describe how the areas were shaped by the contributions of former, current, and time-traveling New Yorkers. On the journey through the Lower East Side, guests learn about how the neighborhood helped shape artistic expression through the neighborhood's gallery exhibits as well as street art displays. The tour of Brooklyn Heights focuses on love and the role that the architecturally rich neighborhood played in the lives of resident authors?including Arthur Miller, W.E.B. Dubois, Marianne Moore, Gypsy Rose Lee, Norman Mailer, and more?throughout the 19th and 20th Centuries.
