Brooklyn Navy Yard at War

We are very pleased to see Brooklynites Carmela Zuza and Clarence Irving featured in this great video as part of New-York Historical Society’s new exhibition WWII & NYC:

You can see more from this exhibition on The New York Home Front here.

And you can hear full interviews with Clarence Irving and Carmela Zuza and over forty other people who worked in the Brooklyn Navy Yard at BHS in the Othmer Library: Brooklyn Navy Yard Oral History, 2006 – 2011.

Teachers: Bring your students to the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG92 and check out the new Ingenious Inventions at the Brooklyn Navy Yard curriculum kit!

    Enjoyed the video of Sady. Especially to see my mother in the line entering the Yard. Never expected to see that. She passed on Mothers day. Thank you for the picture.
