Brooklyn Navy Yard Hospital
While most of the Brooklyn Navy Yard has become sort of a poster child for effectively re-purposed Brooklyn industrial space (and home to small, artisanal businesses like the Kings County Distillery), a massive naval hospital on site has been abandoned and left virtually untouched for decades. There are nascent plans to turn the building, originally built in 1838 and actively used as a Civil War hospital, into a “media, technology and film hub,” but for now, a $30 tour of the Navy Yards will still get you access to the hospital in all its run-down glory. Go now, before it gets cleaned up and lumped into the whole “Tech Triangle” project.
