Event

Brooklyn Navy Yard's New Food Community
The 300+ acre Brooklyn Navy Yard is mostly known for its military past.  But over the last 15 years, the yard has reinvented itself as a host for new and innovative companies, including agricultural and culinary endeavors.

Such companies include Brooklyn Grange (urban farming) and Kings County Distillery (you know what that means).  Most recently, Rooftop Reds and Drive Change have joined the community.  Heard of them? Rooftop Reds has established a nursery vineyard on top of an old warehouse building on the Navy Yard's northernmost pier, with the goal of creating the first true Brooklyn vintage.  Drive Change is a non-profit social enterprise that hires formerly incarcerated youth, teaches them transferable culinary skills and then employs them on a food truck that serves fantastic meals all over the city, including the Navy Yard itself.  

All of these businesses have garnered press attention, launched successful Kickstarter and fundraising campaigns, and raised some curious eyebrows along the way.  On September 19th Rooftop Reds and Drive Change will host an event showcasing all of these efforts in the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92 (http://bldg92.org) at the Navy Yard.  If attending, you will experience a collaboration of ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit focused on separate factions of food production.  See first hand what a farm distillery can produce with corn grown in an urban setting, taste food creations crafted by a culinary team using ingredients from an urban rooftop farm, and wash it all down with hand-selected wine pairings.  Then stroll out to the wrap- around balcony to enjoy a panoramic view of the Navy Yard complex.  If you're looking for a way to celebrate Brooklyn's innovative future while tipping your hat to its industrial past, this is the place you need to be.
