FOLKWAYS NOTEBOOK said...

WIKI says "Although Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation president Andrew Kimball has claimed that the residences have been damaged beyond repair by the elements, the report prepared by the United States Army Corps of Engineers refutes this claim, suggesting that the residences are not only excellent candidates for rehabilitation, but meet all eligibility requirements for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places, both individually and as a district. The New York State Department of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has agreed with this assessment and has suggested that alternatives to demolition, including adaptive reuse, must be considered." These buildings sit on 8 acres so I guess the Navy Yard Development Corporation won -- now they can go develop hopefully in good conscience. -- barbara

"Development Corporation" says it all

Did they start to demolish it already? Such a shame...

I never tire of seeing Admirals Row photographed and presented. So many stories hidden within. Abandoned and forgotten buildings always leave me sad. Wonderful photos here.

it's a cool stretch of road. I recall the sidewalk is very narrow there?

you can't help but gawk at these buildings when there. Nice series, Ken

I bet they could be elegant again. I'm sure it's a matter of how much more money new buildings can bring in.

If entropy weren't so sad it would be my favorite thing.

So sad when formerly pretty buildings are left to die.

Those historical boards always want things preserved, but with these buildings having been gutted by time, it would be better to raze them and leave a park there.

Ken Mac said...

These "formerly pretty buildings" are still beautiful.

This is some serious shabby chic KM. I"ve missed you. Busy me. Bon weekend my friend.

Back in the day, my father-in-law escorted the Admiral's daughter to dances...probably from one of these houses.
