Navy Yard Wikipedia Edits

Wikipedia Edits

Mark Yakub

I wrote a few sentences to the Quarters A, Brooklyn Navy Yard article and add links to make the article better. Also I added citation for some of the sentence I wrote in the article. Finally I uploaded two images to wiki commons.

As, I worked on the Wikipedia and wikimedia common. I worked on the quarter A Brooklyn navy yard article and uploaded five pictures to the wikimedia commons. These pictures were taken by me during the site visit. These pictures were all from the Brooklyn Navy Yard site visit. I added three line information about the commander who lived in quarter A Brooklyn navy yard and added a citation to this article. The article was about Quarter A Brooklyn Navy Yard but it did not have any information about the commander who lived their. It was a good experience. I learned how to upload media, correct sites which I will continue doing in the future.

I worked on the Brooklyn Navy Yard. I Wrote about the future of the Navy Yard in relationship with Vinegar Hill residents, because there are many new projects that are being developed within the Navy Yard that will have an impact on the surrounding communities. Most importantly, in my opinion, is the opening of the Wegman’s Supermarket.

I contributed to the Quarters A Wikipedia article. I provided the architectural origin and geographical location of the house. The article is very scarce and I plan on contributing more information to make it worth reading. I cited my sources as well. I will add images to wiki commons soon.

Blog # 2 – Mark Yakub

This image is a vendor market where the vendor either sell their products or where they distribute their product. The reason I chose this image is because my groups hypothesis is about the development of a Wegmans Supermarket in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The neighborhood of Vinegar Hill and the area surrounding the Navy Yard has no supermarket so the residents have to travel long distances to get groceries. The development of this supermarket will open a gate to a new relationship between the Vinegar Hill and the Navy Yard. This will strengthen the relationship between the two isolated areas.

Brooklyn Navy Yard Plan – Blog#1- Mark Yakub

I choose this piece of work because it gives a clear plan on how the Brooklyn Navy Yard was designed. The topic of this picture is the general plan of the Navy Yard. The plan shows the Navy Yard showing roads, buildings and docks. It was created on June 30 1906. The creator of this photo is Department of the Navy. Bureau of Yards and Docks. New York (Brooklyn) Navy Yard. 1862-9/18/1947. This photo is from Series: Photographs of the Construction and Repair of Buildings, Facilities, and Vessels at the New York Navy Yard, 1903 – 1920. Record Group 181: Records of Naval Districts and Shore Establishments, 1784 – 2000. It fits in with my topic because it gives a plan of how the yard was laid out and it could be compared to a modern-day plan of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. I could try and see what buildings still exist in the Navy Yard.  The question that comes up is who created this plan and why did they choose this format. To answer this question, I would try to find a more detail plan with an explanation.
