ATTENTION: Environmental Assessment on Admiral's Row Property Transfer Available

The Section 106 Process is an important tool that ensures private citizens and state, tribal, and local governments have a voice in Federal decisions that impact historic properties.

The National Guard Bureau, in alliance with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, is complying with all Federal regulations pertaining to the transfer of the Admiral's Row section of the former Brooklyn Navy Yard. Located in the Fort Greene/ Greenpoint section of Brooklyn, New York, Admiral's Row will be transferred from the Federal Government's ownership to the City of New York as per Public Law 100-202.

The Environmental Assessment (EA) provides detailed analysis of two proposed alternatives for transferring the 6.07 acre property from Army ownership and control. The EA will be available for public review and comment from April 24, 2011 to May 10, 2011 both electronically and at select Brooklyn Public library locations.
