The Brooklyn Army Terminal (BAT) is an architectural and engineering marvel that is today a center of manufacturing and innovation on Brooklyn’s Sunset Park waterfront. Built to supply American forces in World War I, this enormous Cass Gilbert-designed complex served as a supply base for the American military for nearly 50 years, employing more than 20,000 people during World War II. Today, this thriving industrial park is home to over 100 companies in a wide array of industries, from precision manufacturers to biotech researchers, online retailers to chocolatiers. Join us for a guided tour of the Terminal's stunning atrium and learn key details about the site's past, present, and future with a guide from NYCEDC's tour partner Turnstile Tours, which has been researching and leading tours of the site for the past decade.

In addition to ticketed guided tours, BAT will also have open access Saturday and Sunday, 12pm–6pm.
