Documenting Brooklyn: Officer's Row

"The Officer's Row Project is designed to document and preserve the history of the officers’ quarters of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, otherwise known as Admiral’s Row, through the process of oral history and urban memory.

We have spent the past three and a half years documenting the history of the houses of Officer's (Admiral's) Row, located within the walls of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. This has included photodocumentation of the exteriors, interiors and grounds, as well as interviews with families who lived within the houses."

The Officer's Row Project is the work of documentarian Alexis Robie and social historian Corie Trancho-Robie.
