History

First commissioned by Thomas Jefferson and employing 70,000 workers during World War II, the Brooklyn Navy Yard remained dormant, finally sold to New York City by the federal government in 1967 for $24,000,000. New York City reopened the Brooklyn Navy Yard as an industrial park in 1971. 28 years later, David S. Steiner and his son, Douglas C. Steiner began development of what has become New York City's largest television and movie production facility sitting on 20 of the Navy Yard's nearly 300 acres.
