admiral's row -- almost gone

Perhaps this spring the demolition to raze all but two of the Civil War era Admiral's Row mansions in Brooklyn Navy Yard will begin. Meanwhile, they stand, silent, haunted, deserted, collapsing, forgotten, beautiful.

What a shame. I am sure these can be beautiful!

This is terrible. Why in the world can't they be renovated? Designate them historic sites! Sheesh!

i'm sure lots of reasons were given for razing these magnificent homes but I really can't think of one good reason for doing so. I would guess it is for development -- that is always the evil-doer when it comes to destroying our heritage. -- barbara

I hate that it's happening but I love it when you post these photos.

Truly unique.

What a waste. I hate seeing these beautiful buildings left to moulder until they're "beyond saving." It's tragic to see stuff like this, like the beautiful Coignet Stone Company building, on Third & 3rd. Though landmarked, it crumbles away year by year.

What a shame. Glad you're documenting it with great photos like this one.

Sigh. I'm just glad to hear that two will be saved.

And as wonderful photo subjects.

It is really sad to see these go to ruin. Tell us something about the two that will be saved.
