Annotated Bibliography

Theme: Industry in Vinegar Hill, particularly focusing on the Navy Yard.


1- The City Concealed: Brooklyn Navy Yard (video)

Besides the links to the video, I also have it downloaded.

This is a short documentary about the history of the Navy Yard produced by Tom Vigliotta. I chose to include it on my research because it contains many historical images and an interview with a woman that used to be an employee of the Yard around the time of the Second World War.

2- Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division, The New York Public Library. “Plan for New york City. 1969. A proposal. 3 Brooklyn. New York City planning commission.”¬†The New York Public Library Digital Collections.


This is a map of the Downtown Brooklyn area colored to specify the land use policy. That is a great resource because it shows how industrialized the area was by the time the map was published (1969).

3- How The Brooklyn Navy Yard Has Become The National Model For Creating Manufacturing Jobs (video)

This video appears embedded on an article published on the Business Insider Website on February 2012. The video was produced by Robert Libetti and Kamelia Angelova.

I think this is a great complementary resource to the first video I chose. While the first video focus on the history of the Navy Yard, this second video tells us what is currently happening on the site that used to be the Navy Yard and what are the perspectives for the future.

4– Snyder-Grenier, Ellen M. Brooklyn!: An Illustrated History. Philadelphia: Temple UP, 1996. Print.

¬†This book contains a compilation of images and a study on Brooklyn history. In particular, the chapter titled The Brooklyn Navy Yard: A Mirror Brooklyn’s Industrial Rise¬†can be a good contribution for my research because it does analyze a pattern of industrial decline in Brooklyn in 1960‚Äôs. It tells the story of how the Navy Yard and other industries had their productivity peaks during the World War II but then closed a generation later.

5- The Struggle to Preserve the Brooklyn Navy Yard


This is an article written by Marc Santora and published on the New York Times website on May 2010.

That is a relevant secondary source because it adds the perspective of specialists on the case of preservation of the Navy Yard and information about the cost of the constructions and the negotiation with the city government.
