Fim Photography: Brooklyn Navy Yard, Admiral's Row

I took these shots almost two months ago and promptly forgot about them. It's a shame, because just recently I read that the Brooklyn Navy Yard's Admiral's Row was finally turned over to the city and seven of the nine buildings will be bulldozed (if they are not already) to make way for a supermarket. They are in severe disrepair and have been for many years, but it's a shame to see such beautiful old buildings neglected to the point where they are decaying husks overgrown with weeds and vines. No one has lived in the houses since the 1970s and the Navy Yard was closed in 1966. Thankfully, the Navy Yard complex itself is home to many industries, artisans, and artists these days. The Navy Yard Museum is a fascinating (and free) museum; definitely worth a weekend visit.

All of these photos were taken with my Hasselblad on Fuji Reala 100 film.
