Admiral’s Row: Historic Properties and the Federal Government

Admiral’s Row, a collection of former naval officer residences located within the Brooklyn Navy Yard, is at risk of demolition thanks to the current plans of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation. Luckily, the federal government has finally acknowledged their ownership of these structures and a Section 106 Consulting Parties Process has been established to oversee the transfer of the property and proposed uses for the site. This lecture will feature HDC executive director Simeon Bankoff as he presents a brief overview of these historic buildings and the ongoing campaign to preserve them.

Lectures are free of charge, but reservations are required. Reception to follow. All events take place at 6:00pm at the Neighborhood Preservation Center, 232 East 11th Street, Manhattan. RSVP at 212-614-9107 or kmorith@hdc.org.
