shifting industrial landscapes

Brooklyn Navy Yard - Built in 1801 but still a going concern and a site of transition. Once an important location for the construction of warships, it is now advertised as hosting businesses as varied as "construction, theatrical set design, computer and office supplies, contracting, refrigerated distribution facilities, media communications and promotions, motor overhauling, and metal fabrication". Its abandoned buildings capture a period that is fast receding. To learn more about it, check out the Brooklyn Historical Society's tours - by bus or bicycle!

It is very important to choose the appropriate color scheme when planning a redesign any room in your home. Make sure you know the colors that will go together and which ones do not to ensure your room appears balanced and tasteful. | | | | |
