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.
