New History Center for Navy Yard
Brooklyn To Get Historical Center
By Staff Reporter of the Sun
Mayor Bloomberg and the speaker of the City Council, Christine Quinn, are expected to announce today the creation of a historical center on Flushing Avenue in the Brooklyn Navy Yard that will focus on the history of the navy yard and Northern Brooklyn.
The center will be housed in a renovated building and operated by the Brooklyn Center for the Urban Environment.
The council has set aside $10 million for the project. Officials also are expected to announce that a building will be constructed next to the historical center to house nonprofit organizations.
Good for Brooklyn, now how about one for Queens?
