Description of the book "Brooklyn Navy Yard":

New York City’s largest and oldest industrial facility, the -historic Brooklyn Navy Yard occupies 250-acres on the East -River between the Williamsburg and Manhattan Bridges, and -is presently one of New York City’s major industrial sites. One -of the last remnants of Brooklyn’s industrial supremacy, the -Yard has experienced tremendous change: functioning from the -age of wind to that of diesel. As a cradle of naval evolution, -the Yard has had to reinvent itself constantly, and this is made -evident by the presence of buildings and structures spanning -from the PDF 1830s to the 1950s. The Navy Yard was shut down -in 1966 and reopened again in 1971 when the City of New -York bought it with the intention of redevelopment. Great ships -are still repaired there, and the Yard, now an industrial park -with a variety of manufacturers and light industries, functions -as a refuge from a city that has mostly forgotten that a mixed -economy is a key to its survival.

The Brooklyn Navy Yard, the first monograph by John -Bartelstone, offers a quiet and striking look at the Yard as -a PDF time capsule of industrial New York. The Yard today is a -fusion of the sublime and the practical, with eerie abandoned -elements existing side by side with vibrant businesses. -Bartelstone’s camera is partial to the former. The images -show a place out of time, where World War II New York is still -palpable. Bartelstone has been photographing the buildings -and structures of the Yard since 1994. His photographs are -neither a history of the Navy Yard nor a depiction of its role as -a modern industrial park- the book PDF instead offers a structured -impression of a dreamscape.
