Brooklyn Navy Yard Museum

From the Nov. 7th New York Post.

The 19th century Marine Commandant's home in the former 300 acre Brooklyn Navy Yard, has been restored and incorporated into a $27 million, 33,000 square foot museum and visitors center.

It opened Nov. 11th on Veterans Day.

The navy yard was established in 1801.

More than 80 US Navy ships were built or commissioned there, including the USS Monitor in 1862, the USS Arizona in 1915 and the USS North Carolina in 1940.

Something to Visit. --Old B-R'er
