From Bush Terminal to Industry City

With Melanie Macchio

[In-Person Tour] Located along the waterfront in Sunset Park, Industry City was built as part of the massive 19th century industrial complex known as Bush Terminal. The complex was developed as a combined manufacturing, storage, and distribution facility and transportation mecca for an evolving turn-of-the century city. The innovative, self-contained “Industrial City” as it was coined, helped put Brooklyn on the map as an international manufacturing hub. Today’s Industry City has been reactivated as a multipurpose manufacturing, light industrial, and arts campus. Join urban historian Melanie Macchio and learn about the history and adaptive reuse of this complex.

In-person tours are limited to 20 attendees and are held outdoors.  Walking tours bring individuals into close proximity with each other, we therefore ask that all tour goers wear masks during the tours, regardless of vaccination status.  Your tour guide and your fellow tour participants will thank you for your cooperation.  Should the tours happen to venture indoors, many places require masks and/or proof of vaccination, so please be prepared to have both with you.

MAS Walking Tours last approximately 2 hours. Meeting location is provided with registration.
