Would anybody care to hazard a guess as to why a box from the Brooklyn Navy Yard just showed up on my desk?



I know we have some Semen on the forum here. Which one of you ******* sent this, what is in it, and which capital crime am I likely to be guilty of if I open it and look inside?

And what the hell does the Navy have to do B&H?

Yeah, I'm just trying to figure out how the Navy is involved in the shipping of commercial photography equipment.

Not as exciting as one might think...

The navy decommissioned the yard in 1966, the Johnson Administration refused to sell the yard to the City of New York for 18 months. When the new Nixon Administration came into power they signed the papers to sell the yard to the city. Leases were signed inside the yard even before the sale of the yard to the City was signed.
Still kind of interesting. Yes I'm bored.

So, it's what, an Air Force base?

Here in San Diego, we have a Navy Base. Guess who uses it? The Navy.

There's a Marine Corps Base, too. Used for... training Marines.

Wanna know what they do at the Coast Guard station? If you said "ship packages", you would be wrong. They guard the coast.

You'll never guess what goes on at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.

Brooklyn Navy Yard was decommisioned ages ago. Now it's used for warehouses, light manufacturing, prostitution and crack dens.

OK so DC's Navy Yard does have some Marine Corps barracks around it. It's also the name of a Metro stop. And adjacent to Nationals Park. But I think there is office space and other commercial stuff in it. Like a Rice King and a Trapeze School.

Yes, but a Naval yard is not necessarily a Naval base. It easily keeps it's name and acts as a public or private yard for another.
