Somehow very poignant - like an almost invisible old man you pass by on the street who once led a platoon to victory.
Great color in photo.
The HMS Hood was constructed at the John Brown & Company shipyards in Clydebank, Scotland.The Navy Yard, however has been a tribute to our innovation and military might since 1806 - now sadly long gone.
I love old buildings like this. There is one here of the same configuration that was large enough to hold trains and it was just restored and converted to lofts. That whole upper section was turned into a common space - atrium plus party area. But it still looks like a great factory from outside!
I think I am what you call a "Lurker". I visit every day but very seldom comment. But I have to tell you how much I am enjoying your series on the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Strangely enough they make me recall the place where I grew up, a small town in Oklahoma that had been home to the intersection of three railroads. I had a morning paper route in the day when papers were delivered by boys on bicycles, and rode over tracks and rough brick streets illuminated by bare light bulbs. In many ways it was not so different from the world of your photographs, old, even then beginning to crumble, just smaller.
Quite a structure.
There's some history there. How did you get on the grounds?
Love the photo. I am sure a Walmart will soon be there--ahhhhH!
does it come with stories of ghosts?
did you use a filter for the pic?
so surreal it looks unreal.
Yep, I see a ghost in this upstairs window I think!V
that's awesome! Nice to see they didn't tear it down :)~ I'd love to visit that... maybe in the summer - i have many places in Brooklyn to visit this year!
Even I have heard of BNY.
It almost seems alive, like an aging lion.
